Most of what I write about is a combination of both the natural world and the spiritual world and while I agree with most of modern science to date, I do think there is also a spiritual layer to reality.

Sift through the PAGES and POSTS for more interesting information guaranteed to make you think and question.


#1 Nothing is No Information

#2 Something is Some Information

#3 NoThing is Infinite/Unlimited information

Be careful how you understand NOTHING to be and how the word is used when you read my pages and articles on the web. I hold that the true vacuum energy of our universe and of in fact everything is from NOTHING of Infinite Information, is dynamic, and full --not empty, stagnate, and of zero information.

All the information collected from this process of existence and life is also retained inside of the Nothing. Who knows how many times existence and life have happened. I don't think information is lost or destroyed, and I don't think it returns into a zero-information kind of nothing.

Both understandings of nothing look very similar. They are both undefinable, unquantifiable, immeasurable...but they are opposites. The difference between zero and infinity.

FYI: There is One thing all of life wants, even human life and that is the effects of LOVE.



Nothing- Nothing and everything are but different forms of the same.

What does Nothing have to do with it?

In Genesis 1 we find 3 interesting Hebrew words.
Create= Bara
Make=   Asah
Form=   Yatsar

I do not see bara and asah and yatsar as having the same meaning. They are similar, but they are not the same.

We can look at the differences between create and make in English to see this simply. A creator of a new design will create. I created a story. It is something original, no one else can do or have done and it is something new. 

However, I will make a house or make a book. This simply means using the processes familiar to everyone. Nails, wood, hammer and I can make my house. OR with paper, a type writer and binding material I can make my book.

If I create my own house design, then it is new and original and only I can do it and did it. 

I agree Bara is unique because it is something only God can do, but while I agree this is for significance I feel the significance is found in the spiritual side of things. It is significant because of its spiritual significance. 

I also find it very interesting three verbs at once Bara and Asah and Yatsar are used for animals and humans. This is not the case for anything else in Genesis 1. Bara and Yatsar are only used for animals and humans as well. 

BARA is not used for anything else other than animals, humans and then in the first summary. For myself this is as the spiritual summary of importance, but also as the first spiritual act.

This makes sense logically to me because before the Physical world existed, what existed? I would say the Spirit of God. So, if only the spirit of God existed, then how can anything else occupy its space?

Space has to be formed for the physical world to exist inside of. So, the question becomes how?

For myself it is simple. The spirit must perform the first act of self sacrifice and close itself and in this closing a void is formed to allow for a space for the physical world. This void to me I would call nothingbut what I mean by nothing is not the non-existence of everything, because I don’t think true non-existence or absolute nothingness exists.

What it is, is Chaos———the chaos of all the natural energy. Not the spiritual energy. 

What I think is that this “nothingness” that was formed in fact is the bubbling chaotic mess of virtual particles which scientists have detected. Yes, nothingness doesn’t exist, but this in fact what nothingness is. 

What is essential to me in chapter 1, verse 1 is that we do NOT see God making or creating or even using His words to bring this CHAOS -TOHU- into existence. It already was. It just is in the very first line. WHY?

For myself it is clear, because it is the consequence of the first spiritual act. 

Everything goes from a lower energy state of random chaos into a higher energy state of non-random and ordered appearances. 

We also see the word evening also meaning Chaos in Hebrew. the Hebrew of ‘evening’ (VAYEHI EREV) and ‘morning’ (BOKER, BIKO- RET) can be understood as ‘chaos’ and ‘order’. Everything is going through a process of chaos first and then order. From invisibly into visibility. 

Bara is the spiritual act. BUT, in a sense it is nothingness too! Just not as you and most people think of it. When we say nothingness, and I think when God creates from nothingness, what that means is in fact from NO THINGS. Which means it is spiritual, it is unseen, it is not natural.

The other way to create is by using things, or information. So Nothingness in this sense, is a physical nothingness, not an absence of all things and thus spiritual. I see this in a similar way to Rabbi Ramban. However, he does not make the link between No Thing and the Spiritual as being the same thing and I don’t think he understood the physical nothing as essentially the natural energy of everything -just in its most broken down fundamental form. But to me this is very much what nothing is. All the natural energy broken down into its most simple form. 

So this to me is the major difference between Bara and Asah. To create is to create something new, original and with spiritual significance. It is to form from nothing, because the spirit is NO THING. However, when we start seeing things, the natural, the physical is when we see ASAH appear. This is because to make things, you need things. 

Things are built from Simple to Complex. From Random to Non-Random. From Physical Nothing (which is a chaos of virtual particles) into Something. This is the process.  

But when we run into No Thing we also run into the Spirit.

What is God?

For myself, I view God as a Spirit. An infinite, illimitable, eternal Spirit. What is a Spirit? For myself, I view a Spirit as the most fundamental form, most simple form of energy.

I think to call the Spirit/God as intelligent or conscious, restricts and limits our own understanding of it. This is because we view life and nature through our own intelligence and consciousness. Ours evolved naturally from simple to complex and is restricted by body/space/time.

A God would not have these limits, would not have evolved and would not be complex. Therefore its "intelligence" and "conscious" would be nothing like we understand.

God is not a consciousness inside a brain or an intelligence inside a brain or even a mind inside a brain. Though a mind might be the closest we can think of it. God would exist outside of space and time and inside of it; therefore, its "consciousness" would encompass past-present-future and even before time. Its intelligence could be much like a mathematical genius quantum computer. Perhaps an Awakened Energy-Spirit- would be a better definition.

There are two kinds of energy in my view. Spiritual and Physical. When we understand virtual particles and fundamental particles better, I think we come closer to understanding what Spiritual Energy can do as well.

Spiritual Energy >>Withdrawal>>Space Forms>>Physical Energy Emerges>>Fields> Virtual Particles> Forces>Fundamental Particles>Everything Physical Forms.

Science examines the natural/the physical, not the spiritual.

I agree with everything from science, except when biologists (not mathematicians) use words like purposeless, without guide, directionless, without goals.

I agree with mathematicians assessment of randomness.

The reason is because in biology, we are talking about things without a consciousness -processes and mechanisms are non living things and can't have a purpose in the sense that they are using the word. They don't have a consciousness. They are not aware.

We are examining processes and mechanisms, but what is this substance (energy) that these processes and mechanisms are using. From where does this substance (energy) come?

Those are essentially the questions at the crust of the real inquiry into what is reality.

Simply because the process or mechanism is not conscious itself, does not mean they were not structured deliberately or without intent or thought, or that a spiritual energy does not exist.

This simply means that physical things and processes and mechanisms without a consciousness don't have a conscious purpose/goal.

Well, Duh.

So, I agree biological evolution doesn't have a conscious purpose/goal in and of itself -because we are examining only the physical Things, the physical processes and physical mechanisms.

This says nothing about the spiritual significance.

However, they do have a natural purpose/goal.

All energy persists toward entropy =Death.
All life persists to survival =Life

Further, all energy follows a pattern from simple>complex, chaos>order, from heterogenous>homogenous, from random>non random, from death>life>death.

These patterns are reflected in our natural laws.

So, all of energy does follow a guide or a direction. It is the direction or reflection of the natural laws.

is Nothing all there is?

Science seems to be going in the direction that true nothingness does not exist. This is because whenever you find nothing, you find virtual particles.

I would have to agree not just with the science, but with that concept in my view of life and reality.

Nothing does not exist, because whenever you find nothing--you actually find everything just in its most simple and fundamental form. Nothing is NoThing, not the non-existence of everything.

The most simple and fundamental form of reality is NoThing and this is why this happens in my opinion.

The real question for me is, how much of life experience and memories is retained in this simple fundamental form that makes up our universe and our everything?

How is it retained?

We can see cells seem to have a sense of memory and experience, but do virtual particles too?

Do all our memories and life experiences retain themselves in some fundamental form of energy?

Could what we call the soul or spirit be an echo of nature itself?

It does seem that virtual particles have to behave certain ways. It pops as a gluon only to become a photon or such...because it seemingly has to conform to the existence it pops into. Some virtual particles might pop into our existence as anti-quarks, but most have to conform and so we see the photon it is supposed to be.

Why do virtual particles conform? What rules are they following? It seems they are somehow aware of what is around them if they are conforming. (Not to imply this awareness has to be conscious.)
