God’s Freedom In The Human Dimension Implies Knowledge And Time

New Dimensions Here Occur On The Back Of Negation

Human Meaning Is A Product Of God’s Freedom

God Connection Paper Concluded
April, ‘81

The possibilities contained in human experience are immense, but the
immediate consequence is that the person who we are is able to
maintain some degree of permanence in the midst of constant change.
This becomes clear when you consider that in the experience of
the negative space of nothingness (Sartre’s for-itself consciousness),
by implication, we identify being. This is not the end of it, however,
for in that this negation occurs in our awareness (self-awareness)
while at the same time occurring within the space of our environment, we experience  the forward movement of freedom in the form of an implied knowledge (facts) of our environment. In itself, this “passage of time” does not produce a
great deal of knowledge, but because we bring the logical
relationships implicit in God’s freedom to bear on an event,
we may form judgments concerning the significance and the probable
cause of that event. These judgments are determined valid
across a continuum which ranges from sensation divorced from theory at
one end, to, at the other, sensation reinforced by the most advanced
and respected scientific theory available.

[It is probably not a coincidence that the universal constant of
duality, as defined in this paper and resulting from the phenomenon of
awareness becoming aware of itself as not being itself may be further
identified as number, and that this number, upon a prodigious
extension of freedom, may give rise to the logically sound
relationships of mathematics. This being the case, we cannot be
surprised to discover that the results from a rigorous investigation
of number, when applied to our spatial environment, in many cases,
corresponds to the events which have been predicted to occur in that
environment.]

Many of the judgments we use to define our experience result from our
ability to identify non-being. In that we may identify a particular
state of affairs as occurring or not occurring, it becomes prohibitive
that this same state of affairs may occur and not occur at the same
time. This principle (of self-contradiction), when applied to
analytical thought becomes a powerful tool, but, more informally, this
principle also may be used to determine a person’s priorities and
consequent behavior; that is, making one’s behavior and beliefs
consistent. For instance, if I quite my job in order to experience
more time form myself, I would, in a very brief time, come to realize
that employment is an essential prerequisite for the experience of
satisfying free time, hence quitting my job would be inconsistent with
my desired goal.

With the creation of priorities, awareness expands, and here we see
the guiding light which illuminates our future possibilities, however,
if there is one lesson which we have to learn again and again, it is
that when a person’s priorities, either by choice or by a deficiency
in the basic necessities of life, are solely determined by a desire
for immediate sense gratification, that in almost every case, those
people become the victims and the prisoners of their own fear,
prejudice, greed, and sometimes even violence.

The above state of affairs, which I have just described,
is graphically captured in the Tai Chi Symbol—by the black circle in white (white/awareness) i.e., Sartre’s for-itself consciousness, while the white circle in black represents God, i.e., the freedom upon which all existence rests, thus, in the Tai Chi symbol we have a complete representation of God’s freedom to not be God so that God can be free, free to become self-aware in human consciousness. Here the experience of the experience of the experience of God’s freedom—human experience—becomes totally symbolized—and you and I are that experience.

About bwinwnbwi

About me: Marvin Gaye’s song, "What’s Going On" was playing on the jukebox when I went up to the counter and bought another cup of coffee. When I got back, the painting on the wall next to where I was sitting jumped out at me, the same way it had done many times before. On it was written a diatribe on creativity. It was the quote at the bottom, though, that brought me back to this seat time after time. The quote had to do with infinity; it went something like this: Think of yourself as being in that place where infinity comes together in a point; where the infinite past and the infinite future meet, where you are at right now. The quote was attributed to Hermann Hesse, but I didn’t remember reading it in any of the books that I had read by him, so I went out and bought Hesse’s last novel, Magister Ludi. I haven’t found the quote yet, but I haven't tired of looking for it either.

One Response to God’s Freedom In The Human Dimension Implies Knowledge And Time

    Evolution is driven not just by adaptation/survival; it is driven also by consciousness/freedom. Evolution is not just associated with biology; it is associated also with structure, the structure that separates/connects/embeds. At bottom, the ~~b structure connects/manifests the space of logical implication (the source of consciousness/freedom). After a sufficient level of evolution the ~~b structure per-mutates into a higher structural form, the ~bb structure or the “space biological life.” And further, after more consciousness/freedom liberation, the life structure, ~bb, per-mutates into the higher structure of b~b~bb—the structure that builds civilizations and asks the questions that surround the: how, why, when, and where did human consciousness/freedom come from, i.e., the liberation in human consciousness of “logical implication”.
