A cornerstone must be put in place, the establishment of a paradigm that will serve the ages to come related to three attributes of God.
The first is built upon a postulated theory of six macro-ages in which the stars all expand outward after the big bang and six macro-ages of time that pass before the next big bang. (There is more said about this in my book.) Then, as all matter falls to the black hole of all black holes even light, frequencies, and vibrations are drawn in. Picture the last power standing: Just before it enters the ball of mass it says, "Let there be light."
We have no control concerning this; it is systemic, built-in, and so far removed from the human condition that "You can't get there from here" is the best way to understand it. Rites, rituals, and prayers do not reach it. It just is. And this carries over to the second definable trait that I wish to mention.
The examination of it is in how the invention goes on to dictate, require of, or otherwise control the inventor. Today computer technology is building a world of its own; and while we can say that the automobile serves mankind it is just as true to say that man serves the automobile. Take note of traffic-snarled cities plagued by gridlock and you are looking at created environment, a monster made by an invention. Then, in those cities witness all of the businesses that were put in place to serve the car.
As God creates, so too do we reach out to invent, albeit on a much smaller scale; so, in consideration of this fundamental behavior it should be understood that all of this four-dimensional reality we are in has to lead back to the one that brought it into being and thus, God is reality and reality is God. Further, directly related to this idea are all the basics of science: math, astronomy, etc. Pi, Epsilon, and Theta will always be there; no matter what a person believes, two plus two will always be equal to four.
Like the highest form of the creator, in causing the big bang this bedrock of scientific reality does not have flexibility. A dictatorial regime may torture you to the point where you can see variations, but that will only be irrational delusion. Our task is in acceptance, we must strive to be in harmony with these two manifestations of the Godhead. We get nowhere in going against these two precepts by inventing contrived notions of reality that do not fit with the proofs and evidences. Moving religion to a place disconnected from science is an act of lying.
And, lastly, the tertiary (third) attribute of God:
Many people have a spark of the divine within. But there is nothing uniform about the strength of this gift. The scribe could write that Adam was the first man and not be lying because the intent could have been to tell us that he was the first with a human soul. Souls are tiny sparks, and they can be seen as little seeds placed in our deepest recesses. Collectively those blessed/cursed with a small dose of a higher power can, and do, communicate with their like-fellows at all times, but this is especially true at night when sleep allows us to touch the higher worlds. Collectively souls are an essence of God. They form connections to the universal mind through the organization of their collective consciousnesses. I think that the mystics and alchemists of the Middle Ages referred to this system as "The Invisible College." It is in this area that mankind can have some positive changes brought about by methods of sending out calls to the higher orders; as the stray quarks in dark matter fall in energy value they first become quanta packets of light and they go on to organize tightly into protons, neutrons, and electrons. This is why there was a hydrogen generator aspect built into the pyramids of Giza. Hydrogen is the first element. This is what is created when quarks fall to become matter. From that the stars take over and by the pressures of gravity go on to make all of the other elements. Part of the Egyptian way of usage had to do with the sarcophagus. It was employed as a sensory deprivation tank. After three days or more in darkness the human body will send out calls as the pineal gland becomes activated. The frequencies and vibrations of the calls served to modulate the golden-mean spiral that passes through all three of the main pyramids. A radio works in the same way: a carrier wave is established; this is the frequency that is tuned to but mixed with it, or modulated atop, come the frequencies of voice and music, commonly termed audio. The information is in the modulator frequencies in the same way that the calls of the seeker in the sarcophagus attached themselves to the spiral. To the universe at large this is a language it can understand, and the fact that the golden-mean spiral is a line of lesser gravity means that there is a weakening in the fabric of space/time all along its course; this meant that the human calls could get through with more ease that anywhere else on the Earth's surface (except where there are other lines such as this).
If you wish to see proofs of the human spark, then visit an art museum or go to a symphony. Better yet, take a look at the evidences of ESP that crop up in people from time to time. The symbolic organization of human souls can be seen as branches of a huge, idealized weeping willow, while the trunk, figuratively, is the supreme being. This example comes from the animate world but there is also an illustration we can see in the inanimate by viewing what happens when raindrops fall near to a light. Our souls are akin to the raindrops and in our short little lives, like falling rain, some of us have larger raindrops, some have smaller ones, and some have no inner raindrop at all; some of us are close to the light and some are farther away, and some are too far away for the light to influence. We are not of the light but a raindrop can act as a prism, capturing light, and directing it to the most favorable place. In studying Kabbalah I came upon something that makes sense as according to what I have written above (paraphrasing): At the start the creator broke all the vessels that held the light (symbolic of the big bang) and the light went where it would; some souls have much, some have a little, and some have no light at all. The Talmud tells us that Abraham smashed all of his father idols before setting out on his quest. As we transition to a higher state of being, we may each be required to reenact this action, even if it is merely in a symbolic way.
And I must mention the way the Anasazi temple of Chaco Canyon was partially used: The people made pottery, ensconcing their individual calls within, and then they smashed them (probably at sunrise) on key days of the year so as to send out their calls. Hopi legends tell of a Golden Age. We won't know until we try.
