Essay Abstract

Humanity cannot steer the future without understanding our origin and how God consciousness has a quantum connection to human consciousness via the subconscious mind hologram, giving humanity all preexisting potential originating from Spiritual DNA. This is the Occam's Razor of explanations of how the universe was created, the belief that Spiritual DNA extended Itself outward spatially and that it exists within all physical world levels and that it is the point of origin from Its infinite dimension. This understanding creates within the human psyche a potential for greater decision-making and problem-solving.

Author Bio

My practice as a metaphysics research scientist began in San Francisco in 1971, when I met and was mentored by internationally renown philosopher, Alan Watts; however, my interest in the mind began at the age ten (1954), when an application of the mind sciences enabled me to achieve a record fifteen, regular-season home runs in Latrobe Little League in 1957. I applied mind techniques and went on to earn a football scholarship to Purdue University, graduating with a B.S. in Physical Therapy. Advanced studies in Metaphysics/Cosmology/Ontology and Eastern philosophy continued from 1980-1983.

Dear Damon,

I felt like I am reading my thoughts reflected in your words in this essay.

I have a mathematical proof for the spiritual DNA that you are referring to in your essay. Please see the blogs and videos of true spiritual science at

Conscience is the cosmological constant..

who am I?

I am your alter ego.

I totally agree with your points that we need a paradigm shift in our understanding of our self and how we need to engrain the truth of love in our kids.

We got to teach our kids to Love to Live to Learn to Give to Enjoy Everything.

"wisdom is more important than imagination is more important than knowledge for all that we know is just an imagination chosen wisely."

Love,

I.

Dear, Damon, Joseph!

Your essay conveys similar important thoughts as mine. The humanity needs to understand its origin, (the GOD's every potential within us) and also that is very important the present science mainly physics needs interconnect with meta -(should mean in between)-physical implications. That was hard to understand since aeons and even yet it has been how the spirit and soul...

Dear Damon Joseph,

I think we are on the same frequency, the only word I did not dare to use is GOD. But it is the same as my Total Simultaneity, each of us has a different way of expressing the inexpressible... I hope you will read also my essay and post your thoughts about it.

best regards

Dear Mr. Sprock,

I found your essay quite entertaining to read, and I certainly hope that it does well in the competition. As I have thoughtfully pointed out in my essay, REALITY, ONCE, the real Universe is unique, once, and in order for that to be true, the real Universe could not have been created by a comprehensive explosion of a very cold infinitesimally dense bit of “singularity” handily located near the “back end” of the presumed first black hole. Had that happened, the infinite dense point would have had to somehow find a way to appear finite, and obviously look and behave different from its infinitely small, dense original state. But, that would mean that the singularity would have had to at least become a duality, or even a multiplicity. Everything in the real Universe is unique, once, now. Everything in the real Universe must be unique, once, eternally.

Joe

Hi Damon,

I have read some of Alan Watts books on Zen Buddhism which made a great deal of sense to me unlike your essay I'm afraid to say. He was a very good writer. I just took a quick look at his published works to remind myself of the titles and see that he has written a very great deal of them. No matter. I think you have written the essay you wanted to write to share your "research" but have not really addressed the essay question. From the evaluation criteria, Quote "(Note: While this topic is broad, successful essays will not use this breadth as an excuse to shoehorn in the author's pet topic, but will rather keep as their central focus the theme of how humanity should steer the future.)" Even the points listed at the end do not address the essay question but state only the usefulness of your model.

Regards,Georgina

Damon,

Most run and scream at the word 'God', but just ask them to explain infinity! There is much we cannot know. No essay debunking the Big Bang should be bottom, particularly with a big collapse, which I've also derived purely scientifically (cyclic galaxy sequence and cosmology implicit in a paper accepted and in print). If you'd like a preprint link do ask on my blog if you read my own essay. It's gives a logical mechanism for QM but also bit of a romance.

Best wishes

Peter

Hello Damon

It is interesting to see a "big bang came from God " essay, especially with an unconventional model of God.

FQXi consists mainly of physicists. They generally prefer scientific explanations.

I suppose that you are aware that some physicists see fine tuning in some fundamental constants. If they were slightly different, our universe would be very different. For example in some cases, atoms would not form. This suggests a form of teleology that cannot be explained by evolution, since evolution requires biological entities that evolve. Yours is one theory that would explain this. Another is the multiverse. The idea there is that there are very many different universes with different physical constants, but the only ones that can be observed by conscious entities like us are the ones that permit such entities to evolve. Perhaps Occam's razor should cut both since both involve postulation of humongous entities with very little evidence, but then with what are we left?
