The King on High
One of the first things I learned on this journey was the symbol used for the creator in ancient texts could not be defined with the vocabulary they had in that day, so they used the only words they could. Gods and pharaohs were thought to hold all of the power, so they interpreted the symbol as a powerful king on high. A pharaoh was thought to be a god who required complete allegiance. It’s understandable how the symbol for the creator was interwoven into being a “god-like” pharaoh. With the knowledge we have today to interpret that symbol, we wouldn’t give the creator the characteristics of a pharaoh.
The world of energy and the mystery of consciousness are showing us something different when it comes to describing a creator. Max Planck, the father of quantum theory said, “If this field exists, then we must assume a conscious and intelligent mind is behind it.” He was referring to the field of energy they had discovered, and the shocking observation that human consciousness affected it.
Why would consciousness have any affect on the invisible world of energy? It seemed the universe was created with us in mind, and it couldn’t be just a happenstance. Early physicists believed there was a superconsciousness that gave order to the universe, but not the anthropomorphic god we are familiar with. We have not been able to find a mathematical formula for consciousness, let alone a superconsciousness. In fact we’re still arguing about where consciousness comes from. Is it nonlocal, therefore it is everywhere? Has it always been, therefore it was here before man? Or, does it originate in the brain, therefore it didn’t exist before man’s brain created it?
Scientists and religion are divided amongst themselves when it comes to describing consciousness or a creator. And, many scientists are looking for any explanation for our existence other than a conscious and intelligent mind that was here before us.
