The Holy Trinity and our Multidimensional Reality
An academic circumspection
Is there truth in this story?
David Freed 12/15/2011
Anyone acquainted with the Judeo-Christian heritage is aware of the 3 in 1 God head personage referred to as the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Yet, without a full understanding of their own reality, all struggle to explain, or define, this miraculous trinity. God is so much larger than our little 3 dimension corner of reality that we lack the understanding, or vocabulary, necessary to make our descriptions meaningfully encompassing.
However, it is that revelation that we are 3 dimensional that hint at the very nature of that unexplainable trinity. Any God large enough to be responsible for all our 3 dimensional creation would have to exist in, and be the master of, all three dimensions that define this reality.
Everyone is aware at we live in 3 dimensional reality and the world of religion is awash with the concept of multiple dimensions, it is just inhibited from calling them as such. Where is heaven? How about Hell, if you believe in it? What about the spirit realm? Aren't these all examples of other dimensions, or at least, localities of reality?
Christianity and Multiple Heavens
I have often found myself in trouble suggesting the notion of multiple Christian heavens. Congregation members all distance themselves from me and my absurd ideas, yet, as I listen to them mull over scripture they continually touch upon the issue without even realizing it. In Christian heaven, some will be lucky enough to end up at the right hand of God. As soon as you say that, doesn’t it imply that some will be at the left hand? If we use the analogy of a theater, or auditorium, the best seats are always in the front row. However, some may find themselves in the second or third rows, and some may even find themselves in the balconies. So, my question has always been, just how far inside the back door of heaven do I have to be – to be in heaven?
Christian literature clearly states that some of those in heaven are the elect, and some are saints. Finally you have the rewards group. Christians that are reaping their rewards in heaven for doing good here on earth – sort of like – redeemable frequent flyer miles.
Just how many other heavens, dimensions, or localities of reality, does religion embrace? Actually, all of the major religions of earth, except Christianity, have a concept of seven heavens. Christianity claims to be the fulfillment of Judaism, yet, it ignores or has rewritten much of the Rabbinic teachings from the Old Testament.
Judaism and 7 heavens
The most orthodox teaching of Judaism clearly identifies 7 heavens: 1) Vilon - Isa 40:22, 2) Raki'a Gen 1:17, 3) Shehaqim - Ps 78:23, 4) Zebul - Isa 63:15, I Kings 8:13, 5) Ma'on - Deut 26:15, Ps 42:9, 6) Machon -1 Kings 7:30, Deut 28:12, 7) Araboth - The seventh Heaven.
Supplemental Jewish literature such as the Merkavah and Heichalot, found within the Mid Rash; and the Third Book of Enoch dedicate themselves with the details of these heavens.
Islam and 7 heavens
To be clear, the word heavens in English translations are of the Arabic word, Samaa’a; which in modern Arabic is often translated as sky. However, many Islamic scholars argue that the original meaning of this word was actually the multiverse, or worlds of space and time, and not simply sky as used in modern Arabic. The seven heavens are the seven layered realms of the spiritual upper world where generally angels and other spiritual beings reside. These seven heavens are all apart of the Islamic Al-Ghayb, or the unseen reality.
Koran 67:1-3 “… He is the Almighty, the Oft-Forgiving; Who has created the seven heavens one above another; you can see no fault in the creation of the Most Gracious.”
Koran 71:15-16 “See you not how Allah has created the seven heavens one above another, and made the moon a light in their midst, and made the Sun a Lamp?”
The Sunni teach that Muhammad visited each of the seven heavens on his journey to meet God and The Divine Throne. Shiite writings names the seven heavens as follows: 1) Rafi', 2) Qaydum, 3) Marum, 4) Arfalun, 5) Hay'oun, 6) Arous, 7) Ajma'.
Hinduism and 7 Heavens
Hinduism also has the concept of seven heavens called the Vyahritis: 1) Bhoor-Loka, 2) Bhuvar-Loka, 3) Svar-Loka, 4) Mahar-Loka, 5) Jana-Loka, 6) Tapa-Loka, 7) Satya-loka
Do the math 7 + 3 = 10
Do the math; seven heavens, dimensions, or localities of reality, plus the three dimensions of our coporeal reality equal a 10 dimensional reality. Interesting enough by itself, but extremely fascinating in the light of the most current scientific theories that also mathematically predict 10 dimensions of space and one of time.
String Theory Physics
Investigating matter has led science to use super colliders to smash atomic particles, in an attempt to observe their sub atomic fractions. However, to their horror, some of these sub atomic particles seem to disappear moments are being observed, vanishing into thin air; which is an absolute violation of thermodynamics laws that state, matter can not be created or destroyed, or translated or transmuted.
Then one day, two graduate students were sitting around crunching mathematical equations and accidentally rediscovered an equation from the 1700s that seems to explain all observations. The math seems to fit every conceived situation. However, the interesting revelation of String-Theory, is that it opens the door to the possibility of other dimensions of reality. These particles that seem to disappear from our reality are not being destroyed, but are simply entering another dimension.
In fact, String-Theory Physics opens the possibility of ten dimensions of space
and one dimension of time.
Enoch and ancient documentation
Amazing enough, there is ancient documentation that supports the very concept of ten dimensions of space and one dimension of time. Additionally interesting, is the revelation that this very documentation also comes from close relation with the Bible Story. The book of Enoch is not scripture, but Enoch was one of the most prominent men in the predeluvian era. Enoch was in the direct lineage of Adam and he was the father of Methuselah. God invited Enoch up to heaven as His guest. Enoch later returned to earth with amazing knowledge, and eventually was called into heaven without having to die as a mortal. The Book of Enoch is not considered scripture, but apart of the Jewish Mid rash, as defined as the collection of ancient Hebrew non-scriptural literature. The Book of Enoch was found complete along side of the Dead Sea Scrolls and is used by Rabbis to explore Jewish cosmology.
In a second book, The Secrets of Enoch, he describes his journey into heaven and describes what he observes there. During his heavenly journey, Enoch describes a multidimensional reality of ten heavens and one dimension of time. Complete agreement of facts from the past and the present. A concept of ten dimensions of space and one dimension of time.I understand that the book, The Secrets of Enoch, is not a well read book, so I offer the following text for clarity. Bold print added by this author.
The Secrets of Enoch
"This fragment of early literature came to light through certain manuscripts which were recently found in Russia and Servia and is so far known to exist on in Slavonic. little is known of its origins except that in its present form it was written somewhere about the beginning of Christian era. Its final editor was a Greek and the place of its composition Egypt." (Platt, Rutherford, H., Jr., The Forgotten Book of Eden, 1980, p. 81-104, Gramercy Books, New York)
III:1 "It came to pass, when Enoch had told his sons, that the angels took him on to their wings and bore him up to the first heaven and placed him on the clouds. And there I looked, and again I looked higher, and saw the either, and they placed me on the first heaven and showed me a very vast sea."
IV:1 "They brought before my face the elders and rulers of the stellar orders, and showed me two hundred angels, who rule the stars and their services to the heavens, and fly with their wings and come round all those who sail."
VII:1 "And those men took me and led me up to the second heaven, and showed me darkness, greater than earthly darkness, and there I saw prisoners hanging, watched, awaiting the great boundless judgment, and these angels were dark-looking, more than earthly darkness, and incessantly making weeping through all hours."
VII:2 "And I said to the men who were with me: 'wherefore are these incessantly tortured?' they answered me: 'These are the God's apostles, who obeyed not God's commands, but took council with their own will, and turned away with their prince, who is fastened on the fifth heaven."
VII:3 "And I felt great pity for them, and they saluted me, and said to me, 'Man of God, pray for us to the Lord'; and I answered to them: 'Who am I, a mortal man that I should pray for angels? who knoweth whither I go, or what will befall me? or who will pray for me?'"
VIII:1 "And those men took me thence, and led me up on to the third heaven, and placed me there; and I looked down-wards, and saw the produce of these places, such as has never been known for goodness."
VIII:2 "And I saw the sweet-flowering trees and beheld her their fruits, which were sweet-smelling, and all foods born by them bubbling with fragrant exhalation."
VIII:3 "And in the midst of the trees that of life, in that place whereon the Lord rest, when he goes up into paradise; and this tree is of ineffable goodness and fragrance, and adorned more than every existing thing; and on all sides it is in form gold-looking and vermillion and fire-like and covers all, and it has produced from all fruits."
VIII:4 "Its root is in the garden at the earth's end."
VIII:5 "And paradise is between corruptibility and incorruptibility."
VIII:9 "And there are three hundred angels very bright who keep the garden, and with incessant sweet singing and never-silent voices serve the Lord throughout all the days and hours."
VIII:10 "And I said: 'How very sweet is this place;' and those men said to me:"
IX:1 "This place, O Enoch, is prepared for the righteous, who endure all manner of offence from those that exasperate their souls, who avert their eyes from iniquity, and make righteous judgment, and give bread to the hungering, and cover the naked with clothing, and raise up the fallen, and help injured orphans, and who walk without fault before the face of the Lord, and serve Him alone, and for them is prepared this place for eternal inheritance."
X:1 "And those two men led me up on to the Northern side, and showed me there a very terrible place, and there were all manner of tortures in that place: cruel darkness and unilluminated gloom, and there is no light there, but murkey fire constantly flameth aloft, and there is a firery river coming forth, and that whole place is everywhere fire, and everywhere there is frost and ice, thirst and shivering, while the bonds are very cruel, and the angels fearful and merciless, bearing angry weapons. merciless torture, and I said:"
X:2 "'Woe, woe, how very terrible is this place.'"
X:3 "And those men said to me: 'This place, O Enoch, is prepared for those who dishonor God, who on earth practice sin against nature, which is child-corruption after the sodomites fashion, magic-making, enchantments and devilish witchcraft, and who boast of their wicked deed's, stealing, lies, calumnies, envy, rancor, fornication, murder, and who, accursed, steal the souls of men, who, seeing the poor take away their goods and for themselves wax rich, injuring them for other men's goods; who being able to satisfy the empty, made the hungering to die; being able to clothe, stripped the naked; and who knew not their creator, and bowed down to soulless (lifeless) gods, who can not see or hear, vain gods, who also built hewn img and bow down to unclean handiwork, for all these is prepared this place amongst these, for eternal inheritance.'"
XI:1 "Those men took me, and led me on to the fourth heaven, and showed me all the successive goings, and all the rays of the light of the sun and the moon."
XI:2 "And as I measured their goings, and compared their light, and saw that the sun's light is greater than the moon's."
XI:3 "Its circle and the wheels on which it goes always, like a wind going past with very marvelous speed and day and night it has no rest."
XI:4 "Its passage and return is accompanied by four great stars, and each star has under it a thousand stars, to the right of the sun's wheel, and by four to the left, each having under it a thousand stars, altogether eight thousand issuing with the sun continuously."
XI:5 "And by day fifteen myriads of angels attend it, and by night a thousand."
XI:6 "And six-winged ones issue with the angels before the sun's wheel into the firery flames, and a hundred angels kindle the sun and set it alight."
XIII:1 "Those men bore me away to the east and placed me at the sun's gates, where the sun goes forth according to the regulation of the seasons and the circuit of the months of the whole year, and the number of the hours day and night."
XIII:2 "And I saw six gates open, each gate having sixty-one stadia and a quarter of one stadium, and I measured them truly, and understood their size to be so much, through which the sun goes forth, and goes to the west, and is made even, and rises throughout all the months, and turns back again from the six gates according to the succession of the seasons; thus the period of the whole year is finished after the returns of the four seasons."
XIV:1 "And again those men led me away to the western parts, and showed me six great gates open corresponding the the eastern gates, opposite to where the sun sets, according to the number of the days three hundred sixty-five and a quarter."
XV:1 "Then the elements of the sun, called Phoenixes and Chalkydri break into song, therefore every bird flutters with its wings, rejoicing in the giver of light, and they broke into song at the command of the Lord."
XV:2 "The giver of light comes to give light to the whole world, and the morning guard takes shape, which is the rays of the sun, and the sun of the earth goes out, and received it brightness to light up the whole face of the earth, and they showed me this calculation of the suns goings."
XVI:1 "Those men showed me the other course, that of the moon, twelve great gates, crowned from west to east, by the the moon goes in and out of the customary times."
XVI:2 "It goes in at the first gate to the western places of the sun, by the first gate with thirty-one days exactly, by the second gate with thirty-one days exactly, by the third with thirty-one days exactly, by the fourth with thirty-one days exactly, by the fifth with thirty-one days exactly, by the sixth with thirty-one days exactly, by the seventh with thirty-one days exactly, by the eighth with thirty-one days perfectly, by the ninth with thirty-one days exactly, by the tenth with thirty-one days perfectly, by the eleventh with thirty-one days exactly, by the twelfth with twenty-eight days exactly."
XVII "In the midst of the heaven I saw armed soldiers serving the Lord, with tympana and organs, with incessant voice, with sweet voice, with sweet and incessant voice and various singing, which it is impossible to describe, and which astonished every mind, so wonderful and marvelous is the singing of those angels, and I was delighted listening to it."
XVIII:1 "Then the men took me to the fifth heaven and placed me there, and there I saw many and countless solders, called the Grigori, of human appearance and their size was greater that that of the great giants and their faces withered, and the silence of their mouths perpetual, and there was no service on the fifth heaven, and I said to the who were with me:"
XVIII:2 "Wherefore are these very withered and their faces melancholy, and their mouths silent, and wherefore is there no service on this heaven?"
XVIII:3 "And they said to me: 'These are the Grigori, who with their prince Satanail rejected the Lord of light, and after them are those who are held in great darkness on the second heaven, and three of them went down on the earth from the Lord's throne, to the place Ermon, and broke through their vows on the shoulder of the hill Ermon and saw the daughters of men and how good they are, and took to themselves wives, and befouled the earth with their deeds, who in all time of their age made lawlessness and mixing, and giants are born and marvelous big men and great enmity."
XVIII:4 "And therefore God judged them with a great judgment, and they weep for their brethren and they will be punished on the Lord's great day."
XIX:1 "And those men took me and bore me on to the sixth heaven, and there i saw seven bands of angels, very bright and very glorious, and their faces shinning more than the sun's shinning, glistening, and there is no difference between their faces, or behavior, or manner of dress; and these make the orders, and learn the goings of the stars, and the alterations of the moon, or revolution of the sun, and the good government of the world."
XIX:2 "And when they see evil doing they make commandments and instruction, and sweet and loud singing, and all songs of praise."
XIX:3 "These are the archangels who are above angels, measure all life in heaven and on earth, and the angels who are appointed over the seasons and years, the angels who are over rivers and seas, and who are over the fruits of the earth, and the angels who are over every grass, giving food to all, to every living thing, and the angels who write all the souls of men, and all their deeds, and their lived before the Lord's face; in their midst are six Phoenixes and six Cherubim and six-winged ones continually with one voice singing one voice, and it is not possible to describe their singing, and they rejoice before the Lord at his footstool."
XX:1 "And those two men lifted me up thence on to the seventh heaven, and I saw there a very great light, and firery troops of great archangels, incorporeal forces, and dominions, orders and governments, cherubim and seraphim, thrones and many-eyed ones, nine regiments, the Ioanit stations of light, and I became afraid, and began to tremble with great terror, and those men took men and led me after them, and said to me:"
XX:2 "'Have courage, Enoch, do not fear, and showed me the Lord from afar, sitting on his very high throne. For what is there on the tenth heaven since the Lord dwells here?'"
XX:3 "On the tenth heaven is God, ..."
XX:4 "And all the heavenly troops would come and stand an the ten steps according to their rank, and would bow down to the Lord, and would again go to their places in joy and felicity, singing songs in the boundless light with small and tender voices, gloriously serving him."
XXI:1 "And the cherubim and seraphim standing about the throne, the six-winged and many-eyed ones do not depart, standing before the Lord's face doing his will, and cover the whole throne, singing with gentle voice before the Lord's face: 'Holy, holy, holy, Lord Ruler of Sabaoth, heavens nd the earth are full of Thy glory.'"
XXI:2 "When I saw these things, those men said to me: 'Enoch, thus far it is commanded us to journey with thee,' and those men went away from me and thereupon I saw them not."
XXI:3 "And I remained alone at the end of the seventh heaven and became afraid, and fell on my face and said to myself: 'Woe is me, what has befallen me?'"
XXI:4 "And the Lord sent one of his glorious ones, the archangel Gabriel, and he said to me: 'Have courage, Enoch, do not fear, arise before the Lord's face into eternity, arise, come with me.'"
XXI:5 "And I answered him and said in myself: 'My Lord, my soul has departed me, from terror and trembling,' and i called to the men who led me up to this place, on them I relied, and it is with them I go before the Lord's face.'"
XXI:6 "And Gabriel caught me up, as a leaf caught up by the wind, and placed me before the Lord's face."
XXI:7 "And I saw the eight heaven, which is called in the hebrew tongue Muzaloth, changer of the seasons, of drought, and of wet, and of the twelve signs of the zodiac, which are above the seventh heaven."
XXI:8 "And I saw the ninth heaven, which is called in Hebrew Kuchavim, where are the heavenly homes of the twelve signs of the zodiac."
XXII:1 "On the tenth heaven, Arvoth, I saw the appearance of the Lord's face, like iron made to glow in fire, and brought out, emitting sparks, and it burns."
XXII:2 "Thus I saw the Lord's face, but the Lord's face is ineffable, marvelous and very awful, and very very terrible."
XXII:4 "And I fell prone and bowed down to the Lord, and the Lord with hid lips said to me:"
XXII:5 "'Have courage, Enoch, do not fear, arise and stand before my face into eternity."
Ponder this, In Enoch journey into heaven, does he not encounter a total of ten different heavens, realms of reality, or dimensions just as predicted by modern day String-Theory physics?
Now that Enoch is before the Lord, God begins to share with Enoch the secrets of creation.
XXII:10 "And the Lord summoned one of his archangels by the name Pravuil, whose knowledge was quicker in wisdom than the other archangels, who wrote all the deeds of the Lord; and the Lord said to Pravuil:"
XXII:11 "'Bring out the books from my store-house, and a reed of quick-writing, and give it to Enoch, and deliver to him the choice and comforting books out of thy hand.'"
XXIII:1 "And he was telling me all the works of heaven, earth and sea, and all the elements, their passages and goings, and the sun and moon, the goings and the changes of the stars, the seasons, tears, days, and hours. The rising of the wind, the numbers of the angels, and the formations of their songs, and all the human things, the tongue of every human song and life, the commandment, instructions, and sweet-voiced singings, and all things that it is fitting to learn."
XXIII:2 "And Pravuil told me: 'All the things that I have told thee, we have written, Sit and write all the souls of mankind, however many of them are born, and the places prepared for them to eternity; for all souls are prepared to eternity, before the formation of the world.'"
XXIII:3 "And all double thirty days and thirty nights, and I wrote out all things exactly, and wrote three hundred and sixty-six books."
Ponder this, this book supposedly draws upon Enoch's writing and one of the very first items of creation covered in this ancient text deals directly to the Quantum nature of creation and the duality of matter.
XXIX:1 "And for all the heavenly troops I imagined the image and essence of fire, and my eye looked at the very hard, firm rock, and from the gleam of my eye the lightning received its wonderful nature which is both fire in water and water in fire, and one does not put out the other, nor does the one dry up the other, therefore the lightning is brighter than the sun, softer than water and firmer than hard rock."
Isn't this passage, from this ancient text, a confirmation as to the duality of matter? Clouds of energy that also from the substance of matter. the thing built upon the non-thing. The E and and m of E=mc(2). the fire and the water of the rock of reality.
Enoch and time
LXV:1 "And Enoch answered all his people saying: 'Hear, my children, before that all creatures were created, the Lord created the visible and invisible things."
LXV:2 "And as much time as there was and went past, understand that after all he created man in the likeness of his own from, and put into him eyes to see, and ears to hear, and hearts to reflect, and intellect wherewith to deliberate."
LXV:3 "And the Lord saw all man's works, and created all his creatures, and divided time, from time he fixed the years, and from the years he appointed the months, and from the months he appointed the days, and of the days he appointed seven."
LXV:4 "And in those he appointed the hours, measured them out exactly, that man might reflect on time and count years and months, and hours, their alternation beginning, and end, and that he might count his own life, from the beginning until death, and reflect on his sin and write his work bad and good; because no work is hidden before the Lord, that every man might know his works and never transgress all his commandments, and keep my handwriting from generation to generation."
LVX:5 "When all creation visible and invisible, as the Lord created it, then every man goes to the great judgment, and then all time shall perish, and the years, and thenceforward there will be neither months or days nor hours, they will be stuck together and will not be counted."
LVX:6 "Therefore will be one aeon, and all the righteous who shall escape the Lord's great judgment, shall be collected in the great aeon, for the righteous the great aeon will begin, and they will live eternally, and then too there will be amongst then neither labor, nor sickness, nor humiliation, nor anxiety, nor need, nor violence, nor night, nor darkness, but great light."
LVX:7 "And they shall have a great indestructible wall, and a paradise bright and incorruptible, for all corruptible things shall pass away, and there will be eternal life."
Credibility and validation
Both of these sources of information, modern day cutting edge science theory and writings of Enoch, describe a multidimensional reality of ten dimension of space and one dimension of time. Both describe matter is best understood as having a duality of nature, wave or energy and corpuscular particle. "Whether one uses wave model or particle model ... is largely a matter of convince for the physicist. The concept of 'wave-particle duality' is well established by experimental evidence and the excellent models of Quantum Mechanics." (http://www.khouse/org/articles/1998/161/)
Consider the words of:, "David Bohm, a University of London Physicist, protege of Einstein's, and one of the most respected quantum physicist ... 'The tangible reality of our everyday lives is really a kind of illusion, like a holographic image. Underlying it is a deeper order of existence, a vast and more primary level of reality that gives birth to all of the objects and appearances of our physical world in much the same way that a piece of holographic film gives birth to a hologram.' ... A view not inconsistent with the Biblical presentation of the physical world being subordinate to the 'spiritual' world, which is the superior reality." (http://www.khouse.org/articles/2006/658/)
The Holy Trinity
Ponder this, as Enoch went through each heaven or dimension, he reported on the many different life forms and environment he encountered. However, when the archangel Gabriel swept Enoch away and placed him before the face of the Lord, he simultaneously encountered heavens earth, nine and ten. What an interesting revelation considering that man, himself, is a three dimensional creature. How else could have three dimensional Enoch experience the personage of the Lord? Just what are the limitational constructs of our three dimensional existence?
"The First Dimension - A body in the first dimension may be represented by a straight line. One may imagine that a point when engulfs infinite number of other points in a particular direction, it forms a straight line. ... A straight line has no area or volume. Hence like a point, it also cannot be drawn, but only located, and it also has no mass as it occupies no volume." (http://www.geocities.com/vpanda/UnderstandingDimensions.html)
"The Second Dimension - Any plane figure drawn on a sheet of paper may be represented as a figure in the Second Dimension. It has two important characteristics: (1) Length and (2) Breadth. So it also has area and can be located. ... But it has no mass as it occupies no volume. The motion of a Two Dimensional figure may be in any direction on the plane on which it is lying, but it can never leave its plane (i.e. no upward or downward motion)." (http://www.geocities.com/vpanda/UnderstandingDimensions.html)
"The Third Dimension is the most familiar to us. Starting from the points and straight lines we 'draw' (We've already said that we can never draw a point or a straight line, but can only locate it. In reality what we draw on a paper is the Three Dimensional mark of graphite or ink. This mark has all the characteristics of a 3D figure, namely, length, breadth, height, surface area and volume). One can imagine a Three Dimensional cube as an infinite number of squares put one upon another in a vertical axis (i.e. applying height to a Two Dimensional square). The motion of a Three Dimensional 'solid' may be to: Its left side; Its right side; Upwards; Downwards; Forwards; Backwards. It has no particular plane of existence, but exists over and through an infinite number of planes."http://www.geocities.com/vpanda/UnderstandingDimensions.html)
These are the three dimensions that define our existence as mortal corpuscular creatures. Could these also be the three dimensions, in which, Enoch was before the face of the Lord. Perhaps Enoch's heavens eight, nine, and ten correlate to our three dimensions of reality. A three dimensional description of God, a trinity of God's personage, is only logical to we three dimensional corpuscular creatures.
Ponder, God in the first dimension, a 'point when engulfs infinite number of other points,' ultimate knowledge or omniscience represented in a point, of infinite points, or never ending eternal line of progression. God spread throughout the second dimension, the omnipresent plane that forms the very fabric of our universe, the either or matrix of it all. God in the third dimension, the omnipotent corpuscular expression of that matrix.
Modern science has developed the gravity well concept to explain the behavior of gravity through space. The moon is trapped in orbit around the earth by the gravitational attraction between the two bodies. However, gravity does not pull or tug on the other body like big magnets in the sky. Instead the mass of the earth bends the fabric of space into a gravity well. The moon wants to fall into that well, but its forward momentum keeps it rolling around the rim of the well. the greater the mass of the object the greater the bend in space and the greater the gravity well. The planets of our solar system are trapped in the gravity well of our sun, and the sun is trapped by the galactic core. This explains why the moons of planets, solar systems, and galaxies all have an organized flattened profile, because all of the orbiting bodies are all trapped on the same gravity well rim.
Now consider a smaller scale. Are not protons and neutrons pictured as small spherical planetary bodies adrift in the subatomic world? Electrons do travel in orbits, and each individual atom is much like a mini-solar system of its own. These atomic particles have mass and volume. Therefore, I Ponder that they must also have very tiny gravity wells of their own. The scale is amazingly small to consider and the subatomic world is even smaller So small in fact that these particles are best described as a wave form. Is there a flaw in the logic?
Ponder this - a which came first, the chicken or the egg, question - is the bend in space proportional to the mass of the object - or - is the mass of the object determined by the bend in space? God in the first dimension, ultimate knowledge or omniscience. Spreading Himself throughout the universe in the omnipresent second dimensional plane of space-time, and omnipotently coming into the third dimension by causing a wave in the matrix of space-time, thereby creating gravity wells that yielded a three dimensional measure, so that volume can exist.
Prov. 8:24 "When there were no depths, I was brought forth..."
Bang - these tiny subatomic and atomic particles have volume with which to interact with neighboring particles and the strength of their relative gravity wells define mass - creating the matter that forms our reality. A creative Big-Bang event that happened in one very tiny First Dimensional Point, from which everything has spread - and - a simultaneous creative event throughout the Second Dimensional Plane of our universal matrix. Add to this revelation the relative nature of time, as to perspective, and this creative Big-Bang event becomes both a one-time completed event - and - a continuous on going process.
The Big Bang Theory claims that in the very beginning of it all there was a cataclysmic explosion that formed all the matter of our universe. An explosion that is measured as electromagnetic radiation, expressed and measured as a wave . The reverberations of that ultimate explosive bang can still be measured by scientist today. A vibration that warped space-time into the billions, upon billions, upon infinite billions of gravity wells throughout the matrix of the universe. Or as String-Theory describes as vibrating strings upon the membrane of space-time. An initial vibration that created the uni-verse.
Perhaps this initial vibration is simply the sound wave of the Word spoke by God that rippled through all reality!
John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
John 1:2 "He was with God in the beginning."
John 1:3 "Through Him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made."
John 1:4 "In Him was life, and that life was the light of men."
John 1:5 "The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it."
John 1:9 "The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world."
John 1:10 "... the world was made through Him, ..."
Col 1:17 "He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together."
Hebrews 1:2 "...the Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.."
Hebrews 1:3 "The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his beginning, sustaining all things by his powerful Word. ..." NIV
God spoke the Word, and the vibrations of that Word became our three dimensional corpuscular reality. In a sense, we are simply the expression of God, and again my duality of nature is reminded that the very real thing of reality is just the expression of the non-thing.
2 Cor. 4:18 "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are see ar temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal." KJV
Is there truth in this story?
The absolute latest scientific thinking suggest that we live in a multiverse, of ten dimensions of space and one dimension of time, and that all matter is best described as having a duality of nature of both thing and non-thing, corpuscular matter and tiny packets of electromagnetic radiated energy. This modern scientific version correlates well with Enoch's writing from so long ago.
Man is a three dimensional creature and It doesn't surprise me that some theologies imagine God as a trinity. After all, we are who were are, and are stuck in our limited three dimensional perspective. Does it diminish God, in any way, to Ponder Him as the First dimensional, Father, ofultimate knowledge - omniscience, represented in a point of infinite points, or never ending eternal line of progression. God spread throughout the second dimension, the omnipresent plane of space-time that forms the very fabric of our universe, the either or matrix of it all. God in the third dimension, the omnipotent corpuscular expression of that matrix as Christ, through whom all creation is made.
Does the Enoch writing yield credibility and validation to modern day science, or does modern day science yield credibility and validation to the writings of Enoch. Perhaps both perspectives together yield credibility and validation to the central truth, to which they are both witness.
Ponder your own conclusions.
The history of mankind is full of stories, myths, and legends of gods and messengers giving mankind instruction and guidance. Many believe that the Egyptians, Summarians, were influenced from space based deities and gods during the very beginnings of civilization. The Hindu Vedic, of India, contains many similar tails. We are all familiar with the gods of Greece and Rome, Even people today, as throughout history, claim contact with outside information. Some experience divine inspiration and prophesy. Others claim psychic communication with the dead and other clairvoyance gifts, and the tabloids are filled with abductions and communication with space brothers.
Yet, it is that communication with Abram, so long ago, that dominates our planet to this day. The children of Abram became the Jewish, Islamic, and Christian powers that dominate our planets geopolitical scene. They dominate our cultures and ultimately our attitudes and perspective. Look at world history. Which message as best survived the test of time? All of the ancient gods are gone today. Even the New Agers are not looking for them. Does not the power of the message to manipulate mankind's history so thoroughly, and completely, even down to defining the very parameters of our perspective outlooks on our reality; give the message some creditability?
