An Act of God

As we have recently seen, the senses permitted by our inevitable living metabolisms enable us to see only the finest slice of reality, rather than the whole, and during our lives we necessarily can experience it only as being 'in action'.

Also. as living creatures we have evolved to see things as being separate and very different from other things as in, say, leopards and gazelles, and to know the finest details of all their characteristics. However, the reality is that complete Universe is all a single entity, a single enormously complex act, perfect in that it cannot be otherwise, in which there is no separation into categories or separate entities. The materials of what we call 'the past' still exist, and we can even see the evidence of this, though the images as such, according to our restricted senses, have fled away 'at the speed of light'. Things of 'the future' also already exist, though our lives are not sufficiently advanced in space to witness this with our senses, but it is all here, sure enough, whatever it may hold. The whole Universe exists simultaneously, with only our senses prescribing our limitation and our illusion of 'time' and 'free will' during our little span across space -- Yes, certainly it may seem long to us, but it is minuscule in the context of the complete Universe. Furthermore, we cannot add to, subtract from or in any way alter Universe by a single atom. If you think you can, then be welcome to try but, irrespective of your intentions, whatever you finally physically do is simply an integral part of already complete Universe.

Please do not think this is only shaping and posing 'philosophical' or intellectual bouquets; it is describing something which exists in reality. If you think about it a little you must not be too surprised should you find yourself in agreement with this view.

Universe is what we previously have thought of as God, with all our names for Him, or god or gods, with theirs, though whether personal or impersonal remains to be seen, and you might care to reflect on Who or What you are damning next time you curse your lot in life or your luck. Universe contains impartially all that we may consider to be good or evil, depending on our viewpoint, so whether we are considering hyenas or their victims, any predator or prey, it is all God.

Now, the 'financial' parasites for the last four or five thousand years, and particularly for the last two centuries have been, via the simple illusory idea of value, 'lending' mere arithmetic and, by bribing all our venal 'leaders', via 'legalised' taxes and interest have been reaping the real work of all the enslaved populations of the resulting benighted world. That is not good enough, but it is quite enough.

There is a saying that God helps those who help themselves, and in this context it would seem to be accurate. So whether we tolerate the creatures so-single-mindedly and so-deceptively chewing on our living tripes, or whether we vigorously slap them away, makes an enormous difference to us. But that is up to us, and it is all God. So if we want to slough off the financial vermin who for the last few millennia have been chewing us into oblivion with whatever premeditated lie they decide for each day's entirely fictional 'value' so much to their advantage and so much against ours, well, that is our God-given right. We and any action and its consequences, and whatever means we adopt and instruments we may freely use to restrain them or eliminate their evils are all God. So if only for the sake of humanity and our standards of Justice and fair play, if we promote the Activity of God in an Act of God and once and for always rid our world of the rapacious hyenas' monstrous injustice of 'business', won't even they have to admit that they as single-mindedly have brought it upon themselves?

Aged beyond belief, with a fund of experience which few could match and fewer envy, as a former member of Justice International, the author has all his adult life tried to differentiate between fact and fiction. The twin interests of cosmology (more...)
