Most people admire Albert Einstein for his scientific acumen. I admire him for his philosophy. He was after truth—math and physics were only a means, not an end in themselves.
There are people who, in spite of overwhelming scientific evidence, continue to regard our universe as fundamentalists regard their scriptures. They refuse to accept that the reality they experience with their senses is not what it seems. For the most part, scientists ignore their emotions—religionists ignore their minds.
They ought to get together—sometimes.
In my previous blogs I’d written about atoms being practically empty space, and that negatively charged electrons are the reason we don’t fall through our chairs and end up in Australia. Many refuse to accept this.
“None are so blind as those who have eyes yet cannot see.”
Yeshûa was talking about people who are holding on to ignorance, unable or unwilling to free themselves from their fundamentalist upbringing. Or who are afraid that the knowledge that dwells deep within them might upset their flimsy, illusory, transient reality. Their sense of wellbeing.
Einstein tried to help.
“Concerning matter, we have been all wrong,” he said. “What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.”
Oops! And he added:
“Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.”
This last has enormous consequences. In one form or another… it makes us immortal.
Yet our minds are stuck in a universe that winks in and out of existence so quickly that to our optic nerves it seems continuous, hence real. But, as Einstein said, it’s all just indestructible energy flowing from one vibration to another.
Let us go a step further.
Thoughts are energy. They are at the root of what I am writing here. They flow within us to energize our emotions. Over time, they slow down sufficiently to be regarded by our senses as matter. You’re reading them. Little black squiggles on your screen.
There is a consequence to this.
When great many people indulge in similar thoughts, great results ensue. The subjective thoughts become objective. The reverse is also true. If lots of people indulge, over a sufficiently long time, in negative, destructive thoughts, the consequences may result in energy entering destructive vortices which will affect still lower forms of energy. They may result in hurricanes, cataclysms, tornados, earthquakes and other unpredictable phenomena.
It’s all energy said Einstein. I believe him.
There is a Single Source. Physicists call it a Void, which exploded in a Big Bang. A void is inherently unstable, they say. Perhaps Cosmic Consciousness also exploded from an Eternal Void?
It fills us with desire to pursue knowledge.
Einstein liked to inquire into the nature of being. So do I. He was motivated by Kindness, Beauty, and Truth. So am I. We can no longer join him, but we can pursue the same journey together, Beyond Religion.
