Physicists believe they have identified four elemental forces in the universe: gravity, electromagnetism, the strong force, and the weak force. The four forces identify with aspects of the Emanations model:
- Gravity – Reconciliation, the Law of Attraction – see Laws of Attraction, in Chapter V – Humanity. Reconciliation, of all that is created, is the superordinate motif of God and the universe. Gravity is the superordinate motive of the universe and is the ‘material’ phenomenon associated with non-ego.
- Electromagnetism – Emotion, fields of positive and negative energy. Electromagnetism is the energy ‘field’ that surrounds a conductive ‘core,’ created by virtue of the flow of energy through the conductive core. The Right Hand Rule: Point the thumb of the right hand, while making a fist, in the direction the electrical energy is flowing through the core. The fingers will indicate the direction of circulation of the electromagnetic field around the core. The soul is the conductor. The soul sheath is the electromagnetic field.
If the quality of the energy flowing through the soul is: positive – the ‘thumb’ is pointing ‘upwards,’ and the fingers are indicating that the electromagnetic field flow is counter-clockwise (right-wise soul-spin). Divine Energy, from the outside, flows into the left hand, passes through the soul (the conductor core), then out through the right hand to the person you are helping, or the thing you are creating. The direction of energy flow through the core is determined by your conscious choice to be egoic or non-egoic. If you are non-egoic, the energy is positive (the ‘thumb’ is pointing ‘upwards’); if egoic, then the energy is negative, and flowing ‘downward.’ The soul sheath is the electromagnetic field that results from the flow of energy through the soul. Counter-clockwise (right-wise) circulation is felt as one of the positive emotions –joy, for example. Clockwise (left-wise) circulation is felt as one of the negative emotions –anger, say.
The direction of the electromagnetic field is the direction of the soul’s rotation, and the direction of rotation is being determined by the direction of energy flow through the soul. The direction of flow is the result of your conscious decision to be ego conscious, or non-ego conscious. The energy you choose to generate, positive or negative, is the energy you are refilled with.
What you sow, so shall you reap.[Galatians 6:7]
When giving, the ‘thumb’ is pointing upward. From the perspective of the Giver, the electromagnetic field is counter-clockwise, recalling the right-wise soul spin associated with non-egoic consciousness. As the Giver provides energy to the Receiver, he is receiving energy from the Divine at the same time. As the Receiver receives, the electromagnetic field created by the flow of energy into his soul is opposite to that of the energy flowing out of the Giver’s. According to the right-hand rule, it will be clockwise, recalling that left-wise soul spin is associated with ego. While consciously receiving, the Receiver has a transient egoic spiritual configuration.[i]
The Receiver may be tempted to continue tapping into that source to acquire more of what it needs, perhaps to the point of running the source dry. The Giver, meanwhile, gives where there is need and only for as long as there is need; she has no need to keep on giving to the Receiver; and while she gives of herself (no matter to what or whom), she is replenished with Divine Energy. The Receiver is receptive to the Giver’s energy; whereas, the Giver has opened themselves up to receiving Divine Energy by the act of giving. Anyone can see that it is far better to give than to receive. Live to give, not to take (or receive)[ii].
It is better to give, than to receive. [Acts 20:35]
3. Strong Force – the force that holds protons and neutrons in atomic nuclei together. It is strong enough to overcome the powerful repulsive forces between like-charged particles. The Strong Force is Love.[iii] It is strong enough to overcome the dissociative forces which are associated with ego.
4. Weak Force – the weak force is responsible for radio-active decay. The weak force is dissociative and could be the precursor of the universal forces of separation, which receive their ‘incarnation’ only through the ego. The weak force is the material phenomenon associated with ego.
The strong and weak forces exist in a dynamic equilibrium. At the precise moment of the Big Bang, the weak force (dissociative) has spontaneously overwhelmed the strong force (collaborative) and the equilibrium is momentarily shifted to the extreme right. As the Big Bang Expansionary phase proceeds, the weak becomes less dominant, and the strong more dominant, until they achieve a point of precise balance. This marks the end of the Big Bang expansionary phase. As the universe collapses in on itself, the strong force increases in dominance relative to the weak force. At the precise moment critical mass is reached, but not exceeded, everything in the universe is reconciled with God, and is contained in that tiny little ball. At this point, the strong force, Love, is at its highest point; the weak force is at its nadir.
If the forces of dissociation are at their lowest, and those of reconciliation at their highest, the interactions between the strong and weak forces, while being able to account for how the Big Bang expansions and contractions play out, are unable to account for the Big Bang per se. The strong force is too strong, the weak force too weak, for the tiny ball to begin unravelling into a universe. The point of critical mass represents total and utter reconciliation of all things, but gravity (the force of reconciliation), pulls the ball further inward, causing the ball to exceed critical mass and then explode outward.
Inside the pre-Big Bang tiny ball, it is many minds working as though they were one Mind (God’s). The universe is in a state of total reconciliation, making free will moot. In the post-Big Bang universe, it is many minds working independently, but by their free will, choosing to work for one another, and for the world. For God. This is the universe of non-ego. It will be a world of us; no longer us and them. A world where reality trumps appearance, love trumps hate, tolerance trumps coercion, giving trumps taking, and peace trumps war. A world where the wolf may truly lie down with the lamb [Isaiah 11:6].
The Big Bang is the main plot of God’s Creative Opus, but there are an infinite number of subplots unfolding in parallel. Without the strong force to keep mutually repulsive elements together, gravity might not be sufficient to reverse the universal expansion and the universe might never return to its tiny-ball state. Without the weak force, the cycle of birth-maturation-decline-death-decay-rebirth cycle is disrupted and nothing is renewed. Throughout all Nature, while the Big Bang universe is progressing, the subplots of existence are playing out. Sunrise – sunset, Spring – Winter, waking-sleeping, the progression of the Seasons – all are examples of the subplots operating in support of God’s primary theme. The Big Bang cycle itself is a process of Divine renewal, as well as one of universal reconciliation.
It was consciousness of nothing beyond the Self that motivated I AM to create. The universe is the body of God. The life-cycle of humans is delineated by birth (creation: the Big Bang), growth (the expansionary phase), maturation (the contractionary phase), then death (the moment of total reconciliation of the human spirit with God). Then the next thing each individual hears is:
Let there be light…
and we do it all over again…
[i] But not exclusively so: sometimes, the Receiver has opened to receiving because the Giver needs to give. In this situation, there is an obvious egoic component involved with the Giver, and a non-egoic component on the behalf of the Receiver.
[ii] This line comes from Les Misèrables.
[iii] However else anyone chooses to define it, ‘Love’ is the spirit of creating and giving. ‘Desire’ characterizes ‘love,’ only in the egoic sense of the word.
