Does Consciousness Pervade the Universe?

A novel idea has emerged which I would like our readers to share their thoughts.  Consider the hypothetical idea that the unique positive and negative energy forces of an atom, which can coalesce into inorganic and organic matter, may have an inherent consciousness that tries to reveal itself.  Ultimately, we, as thinking human beings, may be the product of that source of consciousness. We are part of the “stuff” that makes up the universe, and we are trying to understand our beginnings that could be due to the inherent forces of the atom that surfaces as consciousness. This hypothetical idea that matter, created by atoms that determine inorganic and organic outcomes, can assume consciousness may have some merit because we are proof as thinking products of our universe.

Another hypothetical idea that has surfaced is that our first awareness (consciousness) starts before conception through a transformation of energy into conscious awareness at birth.  However, a question surfaces as to why only at birth of an organic form would consciousness come into play?  I believe that the internal forces of the atom with its own negative, positive and neutral properties, creates matter based upon its surrounding environment.  Whether or not that matter is inorganic or organic will depend on the surrounding elements of heat, moisture, and an atmosphere conducive to life.  Hence, for our earthly life forms (organic matter) to exist, the aggregate mix of atoms preordain with conditions that support life, the formation of different kinds of life forms.

Stated with earthly terms, plant and vegetable organic life begins first based upon inorganic matter (earth and minerals), heat, and moisture and it produces a byproduct (air) that sustains life.  Organic forms of life that become mobile, such as the fly, a bird, fish, and animals are a consequence of the environment and it all began with the mix of atoms that produced inorganic and organic matter.  So I hypothesize that the atom has forces that somehow takes advantage of its surroundings and gives birth to inorganic and organic matter.  To me, it appears that such forces within the atom have an intelligence or a consciousness that tries to express itself in many ways.  It is this consciousness that reaches its height in human beings to think and reach out with hypothetical thoughts to try to understand its own existence.  And that is why I believe that the transformation of energy is a long, involved process whereby it transforms itself into matter that tries to express its inherent will to exist as consciousness.

Perhaps, that may be why gifted people have developed the idea of a soul because it is an extension on one’s being with the hope that its soul will continue to exist even after death.  Is this due to the internal energy of the atom that initiates the will for survival?  It appears that forces within the atom, from its very beginning, fights to express itself in matter.  So I offer you the idea that the energy or forces inherent in the atom has a consciousness that seeks to find expression in the life forms it finally creates.  The question becomes what is this force or energy?  Where did its positive, negative, and neutral forces come from?

What gave this energy the will to exist as conscious entities that are very likely to appear in other parts of our universe?  Are all life forms in other parts of the universe made of the same “stuff” that we humans are made of?  I tend to believe “yes.”  The life forms on other planets may assume different shapes, colors, and organic functions that enable it to exist but they are all part of the energy that originated within the atom.

One last matter that needs to be addressed and that is can the internal forces of an atom be attributable to “God.”  I do not know because I have no valid conception of God.  To me, God is mysterious, incomprehensible, and unknowable.  However, I use the term God because it introduces a concept of the consciousness that many people feel within themselves, which is the ability to love.  The energy or force of the atom has given life forms the will to survive and therefore the desire to love and reproduce itself for that is what the atom has tried to do from its own inception.

So the next question I offer is if you give this unknown force a name, such as God, why not put it to good use?  That is, why not sublimate our conception of the unknown force into idealistic forms of moral behavior that allows people from different countries and of different races, to love and accept one another as sisters and brothers?  This use of the unknown force is not a bad idea.  The alternative is to say we are exceptionally bright and since we understand the unknown force, just except it, and let’s live without any need for a moral code of behavior because we can control our lives without anybody telling us what we should or should not do.  This attitude I cannot agree with because it negates the wisdom we have gained in the past through experience of what makes a harmonious society.  My concept of God does not assume any preexisting definitions of God and therefore does not present any myths or images because as I had stated before, as with the internal forces of the atom, God is mysterious, incomprehensible, and unknowable.  The idea of God becomes a sublimation of our finest thoughts as to what mankind can aspire to in terms of integrity and love for one another.

Men have always wondered about how did life begin and if there is a God that created all there is? The Egyptians developed the greatest civilization with a belief in a creator god. After thousands of years, the Priesthood of Amon wrote the first documented scripture (a belief) titled, Amon As the Sole God during the reign of Ramses II. Readers who thirst for knowledge of how the concept of a soul developed, a Hereafter, a Son of God, and how the belief in one-universal God was established, they may access the book titled AMEN, The Beginning of the Creation of God on http://www.futureofgodamen.com.

Do you agree with the hypothetical idea that the atom, after many transformations from inorganic to organic matter, strives to achieve a consciousness to express itself by ultimately producing life forms with the ability to think? Is it possible that this consciousness pervades the universe and somehow embodies the essence of God?

I found the conversations fascinating as we learned many different views about consciousness and how it pervades the universe and is inherent in all matter.

Provide History of Religion and God

INTRODUCTION

There is lacking in our educational system across the United States a curriculum that teaches and emphasizes the attributes of integrity based upon honesty and truth.  Where and when did such attributes of truth, justice, and righteousness evolve?  Was it revealed to mankind as revelations from God or developed by the experiences of different communities interacting with one another to establish harmony between their people?  Our educators can provide answers to their students based upon an ancient civilization that created awe inspiring temples, pyramids and monuments due to their beliefs that embodied the attributes of truth, righteousness, and justice.

Below is an Internet link that presents a paper written for The Clute Institute to motivate educators to examine two books for use in their classrooms:

Future of God Amen 

AMEN, The Beginning of the Creation of God

The paper is titled, “Provide History of Religion and God.”  It was noticed by ERIC (Education Resource and Information Center) and placed on the Internet.  ERIC is sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education.  It can be accessed by clicking the following link:

http://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/EJ1073192.pdf

This paper offers a wealth of historical information of the development of Egypt’s civilization and religious beliefs.  The author reveals how their beliefs were emulated by other groups of people to develop the major religions of today; namely, the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions.  In addition, a comprehensive critique of the Torah, Gospels, and the Qur’an is given to demonstrate the connectivity of these scriptures to Egyptian hymns and religious beliefs.  Finally, the author takes the reader further to study recommendations and solutions of the differences in religious beliefs that have created bigotry, hatred, violence, and the killing of innocent people.

The figure below presents an overview how Egyptian hymns (scriptures) were emulated by the Hebrews in their development of the Torah, which later gave birth to the Gospels and Revelation.

A Father Seeks to Reveal Truths to All

Introduction:

This article has been extracted from the book, Future of God Amen.  As the father of four beautiful, personal, intelligent girls, I wrote about a subject that has been a curiosity  of mine since I was a little boy; who was God and where did He come from?  My curiosity prompted me to attend Catholic, Methodists, Baptists, Protestant, and Jewish houses of worship.  After serving a few years in the Army, I read books by philosophers, religious scholars, and highly respected Egyptologists.  Late in life, that is, upon retiring at the age of 67, I wrote my first book titled, Legacy of a Father.  My attempt was to have my girls remember their father after I am dead by preserving my thoughts and ideas in a book.  But I present this article to you, to better understand me.  It is my desire to reach out to all people to reveal the truth on such subjects as religion, God, the universe, and our purpose in life.

A Father Seeks to Reveal Truths to All

It would be derelict of me not to reveal the truths I have learned by what I have read and by the exchange of ideas with the many people that have entered my life.  Truth can be elusive and may take many years to comprehend based upon real life experiences.  In my reading I have come upon truths by accident and, in many cases, by simply connecting the dots through the application of common sense.  It would be a foolish gamble to wait for somebody else to present the findings I have acquired in my lifetime.  Our lives are made up of too many different events that shape our thoughts.  Be they on an educational, social and personal level, these events combined with our intellect and sensitivity will always present a different color of the way each of us see, interpret life, and develop our thoughts for others to hear or read.

I feel a deep responsibility to educate and prepare my children for the world they live in.  They were the initial motivation for me to write Future of God Amen.  As a father who desires to inform his children of the traps and deceptive ideas propagated around us, I feel obligated to share thoughts that may enable others to get closer to the truths that I have earnestly tried to surface.  It is my nature to be grossly offended when others or I have been made a fool of by means of lies and deceptive ramblings.  However much it hurts, I prefer to always know the truth.  I will not knowingly stand by and let my children made to be fools.  They, and all those who have the courage to examine new avenues of thought, will benefit by getting to know their own God and be less likely to end their spiritual quest in disillusion and separation from God.1

This spiritual element I allude to may simply be love for mankind.  However you may conceive your God, you may be assured that He would rather have you love the people around you than to focus your love on Him.  My responsibility as a father is to educate and prepare my daughters to make their own way in life.  They need not bow down to me, prostrate themselves in a submissive manner, and humble themselves as if I were a God.  They need only to respect me for the love and precious time I have invested to help direct their lives so that they may tap their potential and become strong individuals who can stand on their own two feet.  God may be present, but He cannot do what I and my wife, as father and mother, can do for them.  That is, to have them carry on the legacy of raising wonderful children in this world.

As mere mortals, we may never be able to know the whole truth about God.  We have had our share of prophets and righteous men who endeavored to show their fellow beings how they can lead moral lives.  We shall see in the forthcoming chapters that some have made mistakes in their zeal to impart knowledge about God.  We should not fault them for trying to have us inherit a belief and way of life received through their revelations.  Only by consistently trying to seek the truth, will we be able to have a clearer understanding of the lives we lead and, a more positive and healthy outlook for the future.

Many of us have some doubts about the existence of God.  Others find themselves with a desire to believe in God but unable to accept many religious teachings and traditional mores.  There are others who feel that the concept of God is simply another form of philosophy that tries to find answers to questions of morality and the possibility of an eternal life.  Then there are those who do not want to deal with the concept of God at all.  They may simply follow the rule that is almost equivalent to, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”2 and, “It’s nice to be nice.”3

Future of God Amen was not written to deceive my children and my readers.  You will find that every conclusion and assertion made has been grounded in facts and references that have come from reliable sources.  I will not waste my time on gobbledegook to prove a point.  It is love for the truth that gives me the stamina to share my research efforts with you. There is no other agenda in this book than to open your eyes, widen your perceptions, and bring you closer to understanding yourselves and the God in which you believe.

Overviews and book reviews are presented on website:

Obama, the First Muslim-American President

What was once questionable has become a reality, the first African-American President, Barack Hussein Obama II, the son of a Kenyan-African father and a Caucasian-American mother, is indeed the first Muslim-American to be president of the United States. This reality is confirmed by facts that Obama is a Muslim by birth, was indoctrinated in the Qur’an at a young age, and has consistently exhibited an affinity for Islam and the Muslim people.

On June 12, 2010, Pamela Geller reported that Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, in which President Obama told him that he was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father and stepson of a Muslim stepfather. Obama’s African half-brothers in Kenya are Muslims and he told the Egyptian President that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda. However, before we examine why Barack Hussein Obama II is the first Muslim-American president, all people should be knowledgeable what is a Muslim and learn the history how Islam grew to become an Islamic Theocratic Empire.

Muslim defined: From the Arabic word muslim; a Muslim is one who submits to Allah, the God envisioned by the Saudi Arabian prophet Muhammad and documented in the Qur’an 20 years after his death by his followers known as his Companions. The core belief of the Islamic religion is the existence of one God and complete surrender to Him; one who surrenders to Allah is a Muslim.

Brief history of Islam: After the death of Muhammad in 632 CE, in only 29 years, Muslim armies created an Islamic Empire that extended over an enormous territory, stretching from India to Spain and on the other side of the Mediterranean, captured all of North Africa, including Africa’s east coast down to Madagascar. History verifies that Islam is a religion that has grown by taking the wealth of other countries, will not tolerate the existence of other religions, and forced conversion to Islam not through peace and love but by the choice to either pay a tax to survive or be killed.

Brief Obama Biography: Prior to publishing Dreams from My Father, in 1991 Obama approved his then-literary agent, Acton & Dystel, to release a promotional booklet which stated “Obama was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” This booklet provided a brief biography of Obama, which is cited below with a photo. The bio is an extract from an article by Dean Garrison, posted on the Internet April 6, 2014 with the title, Unexploded Bombshell: Barack Obama Admits to Being Born in Kenya.

Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.  The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation.   He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side.

Obama a Muslim: Many years since Obama’s approval of the promotional booklet, the Obama administration and supporters have claimed that the bio indicating Kenyan birth was due to a careless error. But this is a lame excuse because the author controls and approves written material prior to publishing. However, let us not dwell on whether Obama approved his Kenyan birth in the biography printed in 1991 and return to his statement to the Egyptian Foreign Minister that he is indeed a Muslim. This is not a bad thing. A Muslim with American values, morality, and national pride can be president of the United States. What is of great concern, is his lies that he is a Christian when his actions publically reveal he supports the Muslim people and his faith, which is Islam.

Obama%20Muslim%20American%20President

Figure 1.  Presents a parody of Obama’s affinity for Islam influenced by his Muslim birth and indoctrination as a young boy.

In an ABC interview in September 2008 with George Stephanopoulos, Obama had a lapse of cognitive memory when he absent-mindedly stated, “you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith, and . . . ”   Here, Mr. Stephanopoulos quickly stopped Obama by correcting him saying, “your Christian faith.” Obama corrected his slip by saying, “My Christian faith –  well, what I’m saying is….”  It could not be more clear that within his heart and mind Obama is a Muslim whose faith is Islam.

Nearing the end of eight terms as president, Obama has never associated Muslim terror attacks in America as being motivated by Islamic ideology. A clear case is the Fort Hood massacre by an Army psychiatrist, Major Nidal Hasan, who was an Islamic follower.  Early in Obama’s administration, in November of 2009, Hasan shot 13 soldiers to death and wounded twenty-eight.  Conforming to President Obama’s policy of ‘political correctness,’ efforts were made to cover-up Muslim terrorism.  Muslim Brotherhood operatives appointed by Obama in the Department of Defense and federal law enforcement agencies classified the shootings in Fort Hood as an act of workplace violence instead of an act of Islamic terrorism.  What seems to drive Obama to refuse to associate Islamic ideology with terror attacks in America?

Obama Indoctrination: Few people know that President Obama has an affinity for the Muslim people and Islam because, unknown by most people, he was indoctrinated in the Qur’an as a young boy. This fact has been overlooked due to the ineptness of the American media and their acceptance of the White House initiative to focus on “political correctness” rather than on truth and facts.  Obama was indoctrinated into the Islamic religion at a very early age and having lived in Muslim communities well into his teen years it is understandable that he has deep feelings for Islam, the Muslim people, and their religious beliefs.  This is why Obama has publically claimed to the American people that, “Islam is a religion that preaches peace.”   It is apparent that Obama’s indoctrination has affected his adult reasoning for he firmly believes that Islam is a viable and peaceful religion – a view contrary to Islam’s past history and the terror attacks currently experienced in the real world.

Islam defined in the Qur’an: Muslims are indoctrinated with the Qur’an to believe that Islam is the true religion, the religion of truth, and Allah will make it prevail over every other religion (Qur’an 9:29 and 9:33).  Islam as the true religion of truth has formed Obama’s view of Islam as being a religion of peace. He stated on April 6, 2009, “The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam.” This is a distorted and naive view when countries in Europe, Asia and Africa have felt the terror of Islamic terrorism. The influx of millions of Muslim immigrants into their countries have affected their way of life as Muslims will not assimilate another culture’s values but hold onto the inculcated dogma of the Qur’an. To fully understand what’s in the Qur’an, the book Obama, Islam and Benghazi presents many suras that incite bigotry, hatred, violence, and the killing of people who have religious views other than Islam. This book reveals Obama’s early Islamic indoctrination, why Islam is a threat to countries around the world, provides details about the Barack Obama-Hillary Clinton Benghazi deception, and presents 36 questions for the Select Committee on Benghazi. It is hosted as a free read on the Internet via the link below:

http://iranpoliticsclub.net/authors/nicholas-ginex/index.htm

The Obama Threat: There are deep concerns by Americans of Obama’s actions as he appears to be intent on defending Islam and supporting Muslims then the American people.  Two weeks after the deaths of four Americans by Islamic terrorists in Benghazi, on September 25, 2012, Obama announced a threat to world members in the United Nations General Assembly by stating,

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

This threat was in reference to a YouTube video as having stimulated the attack in Benghazi.  It was Obama’s attempt to blame the terror attack on a distasteful video that initiated a spontaneous reaction rather than admit it was a preplanned attack by Islamic terrorists.  Obama’s response reflects the years of Islamic indoctrination that does not leave the inculcated mind even though he had the benefits of an education received at such American universities as Harvard and Columbia.  As one carefully reads the above threat, one deduces that these are the words of a powerful Muslim leader – not the President of the United States.

Obama-Iran Nuclear Deal: What is astounding is that President Obama’s indoctrination in the Qur’an causes him to truly believe, “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”   It is not surprising that today Americans are convinced President Obama is not only the first Muslim-American to hold office but has been an exceptionally weak president in protecting American interests abroad and at home.  He facilitated the Obama-Iran Nuclear Deal that gave Iran 150 billion dollars.  This deal infuses Iran’s economy and continued development of a nuclear bomb.  It was a naïve strategy to control Iran’s nuclear-missile capability.  What is insane, is that Obama pushed for this foolish nuclear deal even as Iran’s leader and thousands of Muslims were chanting death to America, the British and Israel!!

The First Muslim-American President: The conclusion is evident; Barack Hussein Obama II is the first Muslim-American President that truly believes in Islam and has an affinity for the Muslim people.  That is why today, he supports large-scale immigration of Muslims even if it may destroy the values and culture of America, as it already has in European countries.  Figure 2 presents a redesign of the American flag due to his efforts to transform America with Islamic domination.

Pro or Con Commentary: Your comments are welcomed to discuss if Barack Obama is, or is not, the 1st Muslim-American President of the United States.  I look forward to any comments or related thoughts about this article.
