i had a thought that if everything was reduced to the binary,
0 and 1, like a light switch,
one being on,
and zero being off,
then the universe is in the on position.
" i had a thought"!
I had a Thought too: What if both the 0 (the female) and the 1 (the male) was switched ON!
then the universe would be in the ON ON position, and everything would become Brighter!!
Wisdom of Jesus Son of Sirach
1:1 "All wisdom cometh from the Lord, and is with Him for ever."
1:5 "The word of God most high is the fountain of wisdom; and
Her ways are everlasting commandments.” —From the Book of
Sirach, or Ecclesiasticus (a book in the Old Testament Apocrypha)
Light and Darkness, in a transcendental sense, are abstractions to mankind, but to God and to all spiritual beings they are realities—mighty, magnetically acting forces.
From eternity, primal Light and primal Darkness each possessed two opposite poles that reposed in a state of complete latency. Although Light existed only as a core of faint luminance surrounded everywhere by Darkness, the radiations of the two primal forces were of exactly equal strength.
Between1 the two primal forces, on the boundary between Light and Darkness, rested Thought and Will. Although themselves in a state of latency, they were throughout eternity equally exposed to the influence of the radiations from Light and Darkness.
After eternities of absolute inactivity, a change occurred in the equipoise of the primal state in that Thought and Will reacted with a faint quiver to the radiations of Darkness. This faint quiver was the first indication of a transition of Thought and Will from absolute inactivity to an awakening activity, since the vibration that took place brought the primal state out of its equipoise.
Gradually, through eons, Thought and Will moved further and further away from the radiations of Darkness and in toward the Light, whose radiations assisted them with a steadily increasing attraction that drew them toward the poles of the Light. Each time that Thought and Will followed the attraction of the Light, the Light gained in strength and in volume. After untold eons of continued attraction, the Thought and the Will reached the poles of the Light, which, at the moment of contact, were aroused from their state of latency. Simultaneously, the Thought and the Will awoke to a fully conscious and willed activity and unfolded a mutual attraction that, through untold eons, gradually drew each closer to the other. As the distance between them lessened, the Light gained yet more in strength, in volume and in radiation.
Attracted and guided by the Will, the Thought strove onward, but in each advance lay a temptation for the Thought to cease the struggle before the Darkness was completely overcome. Under the attraction of the omnipotent Will, however, the Thought struggled forward without cease toward the ever approaching Will, and thereby gained constantly in strength and in brightness, until after further eternities—with the meeting and harmonious union of Thought and Will—the Light wrested itself free from Darkness, raised itself victoriously out of it and above it, so that the Light surrounded and enveloped the Darkness which then slowly contracted, condensing into a dark core in the sea of Light.
By the perfect and harmonious merging of Thought (the female principle) and Will (the male principle) with one another, God arose as a personal Being, as the center of all that is.
This picture of the inert state and the struggle of Light, Darkness, Thought and Will must be understood in an abstract sense and not interpreted in terms of factual, earthly concepts of space, measure and time, nor in terms of known forms of radiation, inertia and motion. No further explanation can be given regarding the presence through eternity of primal Light, of primal Darkness, and of Thought and Will, for it would, at this time, be beyond human comprehension. Only this can be said: that Light, Darkness, Thought and Will were not created, but have existed eternally—a mystery beyond solving or comprehending by human thought at present.
A scientist on the earthly scene could no more lecture a young child meaningfully on philosophy than could a transcendental being advance a detailed explanation of eternal existence in hope of human understanding at this time. But when man has reached greater spiritual maturity, possibly one of God’s emissaries will undertake in an earthly life to explain the riddle of eternity and the mystery of the uncreated.
Had Thought and Will not succeeded in uniting, and had the combined strength of both not triumphed so that the divine Being could arise, then the energy and brightness of the Light would—at the moment Thought and Will were no longer able to attract and hold each other—once more have begun to diminish, while Darkness would have gained in strength and in radiating power until slowly but inevitably it would have absorbed the Light. Forced by Darkness, Thought and Will would then have drawn forth the latent poles of Darkness. These activated poles would then—through untold eternities—have slowly attracted each other until, at the moment of their merging, a being would have arisen who would in every respect have been the direct opposite of God.
But since the poles of the Light, now fused with Thought and Will, continued without cease to approach each other, the Light gained greater and greater dominance over Darkness, and with the emerging of God the possibility was forever eliminated that the poles of Darkness would evolve into a being the opposite of God in thought and action.
Primal Darkness (that is, chaos, or disorder and confusion) thus lacks its own guiding Will and creative Thought. It acts at random and has become destructible as a result of the victory of the Light. The Light, on the other hand, is governed by divine Thought and Will.
By Thought (that is, logos) an infinite diversity of changeable forms of energy and life are radiated. Above Thought stands the Will, as the highest concentration of the Light (the supreme, fructifying and life-giving energy), because as long as a thought of creating or of taking action remains only thought, it has but the possibility of coming to life—has the potential. However, the moment the fructifying Will acts, Thought unites with Will and changes from a state of becoming to a state of being; it becomes actual. But the Will is nothing without Thought as a constant basis for its activity.
Thought thus is the primary abstract female concept: intuitive, formative and creative; and Will the primary abstract male concept: fructifying, productive and dominant.
"But the WILL
is nothing without THOUGHT
as a constant basis for its activity."
Long live the Thought.
And may She become stronger, more vibrant, more clearer, more simpler, more Loving and more Wiser,
as the days follow days!
