I didn’t get too many questions from the query I put out, but the questions I got were custom fit for what I want to cover as I move toward my conclusion. I will address these questions in reverse order to which they were posted.
Q: Just Random Girl:
Intelligence, is as far as I know, the capability to think, to reason, to comprehend, to propose, to interpret, etc. According to what you are saying, everything is intelligence, which mean everything can think, reason, comprehend, propose etc. Can they? I doubt it.
You have good arguments, but it's a bit hard for me to believe that a rock, for example, can actually think.
However, I don't think their precisely "dead" Supposing that matter is intelligence, then we have a wrong concept of what intelligence is.
As for God having honor... Is it possible for one being to be honored by all other beings? And where does the devil or satan or whatever you want to call it come in your theory? Do you even belive in him at all?
A: Just Random Girl:
Your questioning of whether all matter is really Intelligence, that has the ability to think, reason and act for itself is the common reaction. It is my reaction too. No matter how many times I think about it, I find myself asking, “Really?” I find myself looking at the nearest inanimate object and asking, “Is this rock (or whatever it may be) really Intelligence?” Well, if you interpret the data using only your five senses, (which is what we tend to do) then the concept does seem absurd. However, this is why I spent so much time in these letters discussing what matter is comprised of.
The rock that you are considering is not actually there and neither are you. At least not in the physical/tangible way you think. Consider again what we know of matter based upon black holes. Black holes tell us that matter can be collapsed and condensed into a form that has incredible density. We know that the rock can be reduced at least 2 trillion times in size before it even has a chance of forming anything solid and your body can be reduced at least 5 trillion times. However, evidence points to the fact that the density of a black holes is actually infinite and thus, not even condensing things a few trillion times will yield anything solid. Infinite density means that matter can be reduced in size infinitely. How is that possible? Because matter is not what we think it is. It is not a solid/tangible substance but instead, it is something that is being presented to us, to our minds, to our Intelligence as such, and what I am saying is that it is being presented to us by other Intelligences that are acting in obedience to God, he having organized them so as to provide us with the experience of a tangible/physical existence.
You also asked about Satan. Well, there are many questions that stem from the things that I am discussing, but answering such is not my intention at this time. These letters are intended to shed light upon life’s great questions and I feel to leave it at that.
I suppose I would say that if there is a God, and I believe there is, then it is logical to conclude that he would have a way of communicating what he wants us to know, and the only thing that I can find that holds any water on this issue is Scripture. Thus, I assume that if it is written in Scripture, then it is worth believing, and all forms of Scripture declare that Satan is as real as God is.
Q: Heromen Selena:
If this was true, wouldn't we have found a way to use that intelligence to our own advantage? Yes, everything is matter, but not everything is living now is it? Dead things have matter, and when something is dead or non-living in the first place it usually means that it's cell systems have gone wrong. Making the matter of the brain or whatever makes it operate lose intelligence to function. Thus all matter is not intelligence.
A: Heromen Selena:
I hope the above information addresses your concern regarding matter being Intelligence. However, your question about life and death brings a different angle to it. If something is dead, a person; plant; animal; insect; etc. what does that mean? Well, you first have to consider what made it alive in the first place. How are you alive in the form that you are? The answer, to the best of the world’s knowledge is… we don’t know. The forms of life that enjoy a physical existence here on Earth have nothing to do with the actual existence of their physical form. To my knowledge, no one ever made their own body and thereafter climbed into it. The making of life forms is God’s responsibility. But, how does he do it? Again, we don’t know. The “machines” are entirely too complex. We do know that God uses matter to make all forms of life, but what is life?
God doesn’t make things appear magically. Not even he can make something from nothing. Instead, he creates things by organizing what already exists into better and higher forms. He gathers the other Intelligences to him and says, “Trust me”. “I can show you how to improve you situation. If you will allow me to help, I will give you the opportunity to be more than just a lone Intelligence having no form in darkness”. Upon hearing this offer, do all of the Intelligences instantly listen to him and start doing whatever he asks them to do? No, I am sure they do not. But, God is all-knowing, and God is patient, and most importantly, God is good. Thus, I suppose that if you were to go back in time to the beginning of God’s creation efforts (to a time prior to what we observe as the Big Bang) he likely made his initial offer to help all of the other Intelligences, but then began working with whichever ones placed their trust in him. Thus, he began organizing and creating and lifting and improving and beautifying the Intelligences that trusted him into forms of light and life which became the beginnings of the Universe. As he did this, the other Intelligences had little to do but observe from darkness what he was doing. In time, more and more of them came to realize that he could indeed be trusted and eventually turned their trust over to him and began doing what he asked of them. Thus as time went on, more and more desired his assistance and he continued to help and lift them as he organized them in like manner, thus expanding the Universe. This process has then continued on until today with ourselves now being Intelligences that have the opportunity to experience physical life.
Now, that all may seem like a big tangent, but such is needed in order to understand life and death. What is the difference between life and death? Is it not merely perspective, or in other words, the manner in which we are experiencing our existence at a given point? We have existed as Intelligences eternally. Intelligences have no beginning and they will have no end (as we have discussed before, we are the same exact thing that God is, but we are not yet as Intelligent).
This is where the entire picture comes together if you will allow yourself to consider it. We are Intelligences and thus we are intellectual beings. Intelligence is what exists in the Universe and there is nothing else.
For a long time Science held out two great laws, The Law of Conservation of Mass and The Law of Conservation of Energy which were believed to be two separate laws. Then, along came Einstein who showed that mass and energy are the same thing in different forms and that the two laws are actually the same law. Einstein thereby established that everything in the Universe, whether it be matter (mass) or energy, is the exact same thing that simply exists in different forms at different times. However, what I am presenting here is that he and Science are yet missing the mark, because they won’t (for whatever reason) continue following these truths on to where they ultimately go… to their own selves. Science gets stuck because it wants to look at everything in the Universe except themselves and, in the end, they are what they are looking for. They are the missing link in their own equations for they are Intelligences and Intelligence is all that there is. The Universe is made of matter, but matter is made of light and conscious energy, and these things are but manifestations of Intelligence, which is true building block of all things.
So let’s get to into how it all works. It is interesting that I am taking this topic on when I am, because a couple of years back I would not have had such a perfect example to help everyone understand. What am I talking about… Harry Potter, Part II of The Deathly Hallows. They hit directly on the key principle in this movie. After Harry allows himself to be killed by Lord Voldemort, he finds himself in a peaceful, white light setting where he is greeted by Albus Dumbledouf (who died in the previous movie). At the end of the conversation, Harry asks Albus the question, “Is this real, or is it only happening in my mind?” Albus responds, “Of course it is happening in your mind. But that does not make it any less real just because it is happening in your mind?”
This is how all experience occurs for intelligent beings in whatever state they may be. How else could an Intelligence experience something other than intellectually. We exist in the state we do today by the directive of God (who is the most intelligent of all the Intelligences) and by the assistance of many other Intelligences who are working together in obedience to his commandments to provide the setting and/or circumstances wherein we have data presented to us in a highly detailed, orderly and organized manner. The result… just look around you.
Every time that try to explain it, I struggle for a way and all I can come up with is The Matirx. However, it is not God programming a computer that he then plugs us into. Instead, it is God working with other Intelligences, giving them laws and boundaries wherein they are to function. In other words, it acts just like a computer program (once programmed, it can operate in a self-sufficient way) but it is not a computer program. It acts like a hologram, but it is not… it is far more detailed and in depth. It is also, and this is the most important principle, whatever God wants it to be as far as what we have access to experiencing. God gave us five senses wherewith to experience things with, but these of course only give us access to the information that he wants us to have access to. In fact, we will find in time that our five senses are quite limited, but it is for a good reason.
Anyway, I guess I could go on and on. Turning back to your question about life and death. What is the difference between them? Merely perspective.
Love is powerful. I would suggest injecting "L" into your equations. Even the smallest, most insignificant and most imperfect of creations are deeply loved by their creator.
You certainly have hit the founding principle: Love.
We are now at the point of concluding these letters, and where else could they have led but to love.
I will wrap things up in the next letter.
