Chapter 24 - The Creative Force of the Universe ?

Chapter 24 - The Creative Force of the Universe ?

The universe is filled with various energies some known and others unknown. What is clear is the existence of "ghosts" and other anomalies. If the Bible is proven to be flawed then what could explain these energies and what theories could be provided to explain these anomalies? The answer may be in the existence of a creative force which could be derived from either nature itself or a neutral creator which created the universe.

The subject would derive from a natural rather than a supernatural ontological observation. The introduction of the term - Ultranaturalism - which describes the possibility of the negation of supernatural phenomenon and the inclusion or manipulation of natural forces. In other words, the introduction of a third category alongside the two known categories: natural and supposed supernatural phenomena.

If the human body may have the properties to recreate natural forces from a possible prime creator then these categories are highly probable:

1) Absorb phenomena

2) Repel phenomena

3) Deliver phenomena

4) Direct phenomena

5) Self-Manifest phenomena

The previous five categories are teleological evidence from creativity deriving from a possible creator to creatures. In other words, deriving from a possible prime creator.

The primary evidence must first be derived from the used natural source - The Bible. The ontological observation is to extract verses from the Bible itself. The term ontological is derived from the part of the term which means "Be" and it is "onto". The previous derives from several verses from the Qu'ran, another religious book filled with natural observations rather than supernatural manifestations; the verses are 2:117, 3:47, 6:73, 16:40, 19:35, 36:82, and 40:68. The Arabic phrase is "Kun fa-yakunu". It may have been made out of the cosmological debate between religious scholars, between the interaction of Christian and Islamic scholars, where the phrase - Onto - derived from.

The above five observations are partially explained by John Haywood Hick's "soma pneumatikon" or spiritual body which is derived from 1st Corinthians 15:44-45 :

"It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body".

In contrast to John Haywood Hick's "soma pneumatikon" is the materialist approach. The materialist reaction is "corporealism" which is defined as "The doctrine which describes humans as material beings". The previous is body-soul distinction and the latter is the mind-body problem. The debate within the mind-body mechanism also includes Epiphenomenalism which states the mind is a property of the body and exist alongside the body. Epiphenomenalism derives from Substance Dualism that hold the mind and body are separate substances. The previous derives from the observation of Rene Descartes concerning the three substances in the universe:

1) The Eternal Substance, God or a Creator.

2) His Creation in terms of Mind.

3) His Creation in terms of Matter.

The inference is made to combine the previous observations from the previous five categories. The new categorization is from dualism and materialism proposed as "Substance Synthesis" which include the mechanism of soul/spirit, mind and body. It is actually the starting point at materialism to expand into the immaterial or the realm of incorporealism. In other words, it describes the material body as the starting point embracing epiphenomenalism which recognizes the mind and expands into the realm of incorporealism. The realm of incorporealism derives from a material term and therefore recognizes the soul/spirit functions as the "universal recorder". The new term - universal recorder - is a materialist description for "soul" and/or "spirit". Therefore, the explanation is from an ontological source and it evolved into a teleological (materialist) observation. The final result is the definition of the metaphysical condition.

"Universal Recorder"ßàMIND ßà Body (Substance Synthesis of all three)

The previous diagram is the proposed mechanism of Ultranaturalism. The term is from the materialist perspective which is based more on empirical data than idealism. The three Rene Descartes’ proposal contains at least one point which could not be proven to describe the interaction between the body and the mind. Point number one states the "Eternal Substance" is god or a creator. The proposal of “Substance Synthesis” is to prove whether or not the “Eternal Substance” is from a creator or from the material beings themselves.

The materialist could not disprove the existence of the "universal recorder" because of ghosts and other phenomena. The theists, or followers of religions, could not disprove the materialist approach because of the conditions of Alzheimer's disease and the coma's argument. The argument for the existence of the "universal recorder" is based on the input and output functions of the material body (Functionalism) and is not an expression of reductionism or pure materialism. The five known senses are the input for the material body while the mind translates the information for output. The known cases of clairvoyance, telepathy and precognition is the interaction of the mind with another non-body or another mind. The previous non-body is preserved while the physical body is eventually abolished.

The verse; Acts 2:29, states clearly the body of every human being, with exception of Jesus of Nazareth, is buried until the day of "rapture" (1st Thessalonians 4:13-17). The natural observation made by Paul may have been proven incorrect but its partial observation is true. John also agrees with Paul on this subject matter in John 3:13. The previous would mean that the function of "rapture" was to replace old bodies with new ones deriving from the "universal recorder". The explanation by Paul is missing an important factor: is there a difference between "soul" and "spirit"?

According to Paul's letter, "soul" and "spirit" are separate substances (Romans chapter eight and Romans 13:1). The previous observation was also recognized by John (1st John 4:3) in contrast to an actual anti-Christ (Revelation chapter thirteen) with a soul and body. In the material, the "universal recorder" is both soul and spirit. The doctrine of material corporealism states that when the brain and body dies the "soul" dies by default. Therefore, the abolishment of the body/soul evidently leaves a residue and it is the "spirit". The previous term is from a theistic perspective while the term "universal recorder" is from the materialistic perspective.

The manifestations of the five observed phenomena validates the existence of the "universal recorder" which interprets input from the surrounding material environment or expansive universe. The experiences on the "universal recorder" leaves a residue of negative and positive charges. The existence of ghosts, apparitions and other similar phenomenon proves the existence of the "universal recorder". Each of these charges of the "universal recorder" exists in every society. The previous furthers the case for emergent materialism, property dualism and supervenience. In other words, the mental properties of a being are a further extension of the physical properties of the said being. The biblical example of this phenomenon is the interaction between Elijah and Elisha in 2nd Kings 2:9, if it is true? For there is evidence that a transfer of energy was initiated between Elijah and Elisha because of the ability of healing (2nd Kings 6:17). However, there is evidence of absurdity concerning the healing of a body of water near Jericho (2nd Kings 2:15-22). Therefore, the transfer energy and cases surrounding these events were interpreted by observers as the workings of "god". The previous phenomenon was then termed as the workings of the "Holy Spirit"(Ruh al-Qadesh) or "Holy Ghost". The truth is that each case, if it is true, could be from an ultranatural source rather then from a supposed supernatural source. The origin of such description of "Holy Spirit" derives from the struggle to rebuild the second Temple in Ezra 1:5 and Nehemiah 9:20. Year later, Paul expressed the group consciousness formation in Acts 4:32.

Therefore; the importance of maintaining positive charges from the "universal recorder" derives from positive collectivism. The previous is known through the past conflict between the Roman Empire and the early Christian community which are both collectivistic entities. The mention of "the spirit of anti-Christ" and "the spirit of Jesus" was mentioned by both Paul and John despite their difference on the subject of 'Foods offered to idols'. The spirit of anti-Christ is the spirit of Nero which continued with the Roman emperor Vespasian who directed the destruction of the Temple and the city of Jerusalem in A.D. 70 through general Titus. The cessation of the spirit of anti-Christ ended in A.D. 313 through the co-sponsored Edict of Milan by Constantine. The cessation of the spirit of anti-Christ in A.D. 313 was enacted because the persecutions ended and the liberties of the Christians or their natural rights were restored. Therefore, the "mark of the Beast" and the "seal of God", metaphysical symbols within the Book of Revelation, also ceased to exist when the persecutions ended. The metaphorical marks were intertwined with the existence of idols in the Roman marketplace which enforced the ideology of the Roman Empire.

The mention of atoms or various charges being released into nature was taught by Epicurus, the originator of the early Epicurean materialist school of thought, who promoted the pursuit of hedonistic pleasure. The previous mention of "pleasure" was a constant attack by Paul and early Christian leaders. Nevertheless, the mention of such a term has been misconstrued to mean the pursuit of every type of pleasure (Acts 17:18, 1st Corinthians 1:26, 1st Corinthians 6:16 and 1st Corinthians 15:39). Epicurus identified the pursuit of pleasure with good and evil with pain. Therefore, the school of epicureanism pursued a sensous and profligate life. For example, one of Epicurus' letter to Menoecus says: "Infinite time contains no greater pleasure than limited time, if one measures by Reason the limits of pleasure". Epicureanism is an example of ancient or early materialism in comparison to the modern materialism of corporealism. Epicurus also lived between B.C. 341 to B.C. 271, a time when Hellenism was introduced to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and the Judean region. The previous events are so profound that Paul mentions followers of Epicurus as "Epicureans" and even mentions the "stoics" by name - Acts 17:18.

Even though, both Paul and John gave false predictions and false "prophecies", the concept of the "spirit" and "soul" evidently continues. Is it possible that John, within the book of Revelation, was actually referring to the return of the spirit of Jesus rather than an actual physical return? If this is the case then the book of Revelation ended in A.D. 313 with the imposition of a flawed theonomy. Furthermore, it proves that many of the so-called 'Gnostic Gospels' are correct by spiritualizing the return of Jesus.

The "universal recorder" of all entities and beings continue after the abolishment of the physical body. The phenomenon of the apparent so-called "demonic" possessions of physical bodies is a prime example of the universalizability of the said universal charges. The point is many societies were successful in the removal of such supposed negative entities or negative charges. For instance, there exist Muslim and Jewish exorcists who have successfully removed such entities from physical bodies. The previous proves that all beings possessed these abilities despite their various religious affiliations.

Therefore, the previous proves the existence of a creative force in the universe which manipulates material forces within nature or the physical environment. The various charges, derived from the "universal recorder", are collectively left on the physical environment which affects the overall biological and social evolution of the remaining entities.

The universe as a neutral force has imposed its neutral will throughout. Therefore, all beings existing in the universe exhibit two energies: negative and positive. The two mentioned energies are known through the collective interpretation deriving from the acts of the sole acting agent or the individual. Therefore, sentient beings enact two types of will to power: negative and positive. Therefore, will to power is will to change. Will-power is the initial point until it is translated through various actions observed as "will to power".

The nature of the universe produces neutral beings with no sense of morality. In other words, sentient beings were once in amoral existence or condition. Sentiency, the highest evolved form of being, was ushered into a species through will to power rather than the will to survive. Therefore, the spectacle of change through will-power is social evolution. Hence, social evolution is not perceived by amoral beings.

Immorality is the absence of morality therefore it does not exist by itself. In other words, it is impossible to be existing as an "immoral" being after experiencing the sense of morality. However, it is possible to be "moral" or a moral acting agent in the universe(nature).

'The Whole Synthetic Being' is finally theorized from the above observation concerning the interaction of the neutral universe(nature) and any living sentient species. The new term symbolizes the interaction of three parts which composes a being: "universal recorder", mind and physical body. The interactions and inter-relationship describes the overall being as synthetic. Therefore, expressing the existence of a being which is both physical and immaterial.

All beings are synthetic beings whether following a religion or the absence of one. The importance or the true willing force or drive of all beings is to enact positivity and negate negativity. Is there an example within the Bible which expresses the previous? In the New Testament canon, there is a collective of negative energy beings which coagulated into one entity called "Legion" (Luke 8:29-30 and Mark 5:8-10). The authenticity of the story may be in doubt but its narrative is a good example of the power of energies from the "universal recorder" expressed by the writer himself. Furthermore, the term "spirit" was used rather than "soul" and this differentiation should be noted. The Gospel of Mark presented the proper context for both Gospels presenting this entity as a collection of negative charges from a previous or current era. One verse, in the Old Testament - Exodus 23:2, gives a description of collective evil which after its duration may become a collection of negative energies. Therefore, the proposition is given: collective good by any and all segment of humanity should be promoted as much as possible. In other words; the application of collective and individual good actions, despite their allegiance to a religion or the absence of a religion, should be promoted as much as possible.

All beings are also followers of various belief systems. These systems contain both good and bad followers (and energies) which exposes the fallacy of each system. The importance of the "positive collective" becomes paramount for all societies hence the rationale for utilitarianism which rose out from years of social evolution. Therefore, collectivism is a natural by-product from the formation of the tribe to the eventual state entity. Furthermore, the formation of the corporate entity, is rather a recent collective phenomenon within the leadership evolution of the tribe. The previous description of the tribe and its historical manifestations would not explain the dynamics of the "universal recorder". However, the development of such structures affected the brain psychology of the human race on Earth. The question arises has the manipulations of materials, over the years by the human race, affected the mind-body relationship and therefore the "universal recorder"? Therefore, has the manipulation of materials guided the moral code structure? Has the two previous questions finally proved the existence of a creator or simply a creative force without a creator?

The previous questions could be answered by evaluating the behavior of the "universal recorder". The answer is soundly in favor of the creative force but has not concluded in the negation of a creator.

The above conclusion was deducted through the conflict between two philosophies: The Pauline dispensationalist view and the philosophical materialism of Epicureanism. The previous ideological conflict has also exposed the meaning of “thorn in the flesh” stated in 2nd Corinthians 12:7.

Paul’s contextual argument presenting “dispensationalism” is not only expressing a new timeline but also an ideological terminology presenting a clash of ideas. What is the body of evidence presenting Paul as an anti-thesis to the followers of Epicurus?

1st Corinthians 2:14 state the existence of “The Natural Man” providing evidence of a clear ideological conflict. It is also stated in a direct manner in Colossians 2:8 where the verse contains “philosophy” and “traditions of Men”. The books or letters addressed to the congregation in Corinth retells the philosophical conflict between two cultures. 

1.      1st Corinthians 5:5 retells the importance of the spirit over the Body or “flesh”.

2.      1st Corinthians 6:15-16 identifies the opposing philosophy existing in the Roman imperial system. The Roman Empire is described as “Harlot” (Revelation 17:5).

3.      1st Corinthians 7:28 is under the subject of marriage and single life. Paul then tries to refute the carnal desires within the body through the expected return of their messiah. In other words, Christian spiritualism over philosophical materialism.

4.      1st Corinthians 10:18 is primary evidence that Paul neither expected nor predicted the formation of Israel in 1948. The verse is expressing, clearly, that the Jewish Temple priests are in alliance with the Roman imperial system (Revelation 16:13). In other words, the formation of Israel is a natural by-product of material history because of the expiration of the book of Revelation in A.D. 313 through the rule of Constantine. The verse, 1st Corinthians 10:18, also explains the meaning of Matthew 12:18-21. The Matthew passage is expressing the destruction of the Roman imperial system copying the previous destruction of the Babylonian empire (Isaiah 42:1-13) as recompense for the execution of Jesus of Nazareth their messiah.

5.      1st Corinthians 15:38-44 explains a review and further refutation of the prevailing philosophical materialistic system expressed by many Roman aristocrats. It continues with the conclusion of the “rapture” which is a hypothetical event expressing victory over the “flesh” and the ancient philosophical Roman system (1st Corinthian 15:45-52 and 1st Thessalonians 4:17).

6.      2nd Corinthians 12:7 expresses the supposed defeat of the philosophical materialistic system by the Christian spiritual system. In other words, “Flesh” symbolizes the philosophical system of materialism which is both Stoicism and Epicureanism. The “thorn” is the personage of John, the writer of the book of Revelation and the book of Hebrews, deriving his knowledge from the rose called God/Jesus of Nazareth. The previous verses expresses the identity of John and the previous points leads to the conclusion that “flesh” is at times describing the Roman philosophical system. Most importantly, it describes Paul's jealousy of John's supposed abilities. For Paul, the "jealousy" derives from Satan and this is the meaning of the verse.

7.      Epicurus of Samos said: "The flesh receives as unlimited the limits of pleasure; and to provide it requires unlimited time. But the mind, intellectually grasping what the end and limit of the flesh is, and banishing the terrors of the future, procures a complete and perfect life, and we have no longer any need of unlimited time. Nevertheless the mind does not shun pleasure, and even when circumstances make death imminent, the mind does not lack enjoyment of the best life."

The previous development has shown that through the conflict of the two philosophes there comes the construction describing the interaction between spiritualism and materialism. The supposed prime creator is the source creator of the creative force and immaterial flow in the universe? The “universal recorder” therefore has an “on and off” switch which could be activated and deactivated. For example, the activities of psychics and other mediums (Balaam of Numbers chapters twenty-two and twenty-four). The “soul” is the living material force with the body and the “spirit” is the living immaterial force. Furthermore, will-power are various options acted upon which therefore creates various charges through the interaction with materials in the universe or nature. In other words, when the physical body interacts with the universe or environment it produces charges. There is no such thing as destiny or the recurrence of the"soul" as this expresses a fixed timeline. Therefore, will-power or will-to-power is an extension of free-will or free choice.

Soul ßàSpirit ßàBody

When the Body perishes, so does the soul leaving only the spirit. Through the experiences of the interaction of materials the “universal recorder” retains these experiences which are interpreted by the brain and transferred to the soul/spirit (Universal Recorder). Therefore, only one aspect of the “universal recorder” lives on and it explains the previous name: Spirit / Universal Recorder.

The departure or an inclusion to David Humes’ impressions principle is the introduction of “Natural Imprints”. In contrast to impressions, “natural imprints” are the various charges left after the physical death of an entity or sentient being or being in general. These imprints are the by-product of the interaction between material forces and the "universal recorder" substance within the physical body. These natural imprints exist with the “universal recorder” and therefore experiences could be shared by activated beings across the expanse of the universe. For example, the struggles and various lives of past and present civilizations could be shared across the universe. In other words; “natural imprints” are experiences either presently, in the past, or in the future. The charges existing within the universe and/or a planet contribute to the evolution of all beings within the universe.

The previous begs the question of whether it is appropriate to promote the existence of a materially just society? An idea which was not directly promoted by the material philosophical system of Epicureanism which concentrated on the individualistic point of reference. However, directly addressed by Karl Marx through the promotion of sole state control. Karl Marx also expunged the idea of property dualism and concentrated on the material existence of beings. The only option is the alternative of a new utilitarian system which deals with material justice in contrast with material injustice which produces negative "spiritual" charges. In other words, universal spiritualism should be assisted by a system of material justice within a social utilitarian dynamic. So, what is “utilitarianism”?

"The creed which accepts as the foundation of morals, Utility, or the Greatest Happiness Principle, holds that actions are right in proportion as they tend to promote happiness, wrong as they tend to produce the reverse of happiness. By happiness is intended pleasure, and the absence of pain; by unhappiness, pain, and the privation of pleasure ". (Chapter 2 - What Utilitarianism Is, The Principle of Utility, Utilitarianism by John Stuart Mill)

In the New Testament canon there is a utilitarian contradiction: Paul’s Ephesians 2:8-9 and James 2:17-18,26. While the “Golden Rule” is expressed in the Gospel of Matthew itself (Matthew 7:12). Therefore, the true conflict is to seek material justice through the negation of material injustice and the conclusion is happiness. In other words, the pursuit of material justice is the true attainment of happiness.
