The Bible is a book that distills wisdom down to unbelievably concise and potent lengths. There are many, many ways to interpret the scriptures of the Bible. Some people approach scripture interpretation from a literal point of view. If the Bible says that God made all that there is in six days, and on the seventh day God rested, then by golly, that's that way it is! Some people approach scripture interpretation from an analogous point of view. If the Bible says that God made all there is in six "days," and on the seventh "day" God rested, then what that might mean is that a "day" as God would define it from the perspective of a human would be an epoch. A single epoch may be a period of time that spans perhaps billions of years. Now, an "epoch" as man would define it from the perspective of God would be a single day. Whoa.
You see, perhaps there is truth in both ways of looking at scripture. There is a balanced way of interpreting the information, but it always depends on contexts, perspective, and relativity. My personal opinion is that a majority of the Bible scriptures have multiple meanings. There is so much information to unpack within Scripture. The Bible can be a very dense source of information about so many things. It is a pinnacle example of writing CONCISELY. Maybe one day I'll figure out how to write like that. I jest.
You can take a verse and turn it around in so many ways and find new meaning. A verse doesn't have to be just the words as you see them. There can be hidden meaning within the sentence itself. I believe this to be because back in the times when people were inspired to write this information down, they often had to use the art of storytelling. How do you convey a great beneficial truth to a group of people without being confrontational, direct, and appearing dictatorial? You weave truth through a story.
Have you ever heard of the term, "the bitter truth?" Sometimes the bitter truth is "easier to swallow" if you coat it with a little sugar. A Great Truth that is culturally important is sometimes very difficult to absorb and assimilate by other Conscious Beings. In order to transcend this barrier, sometimes the idea cannot be delivered in its fullest glory. Sometimes the idea must be compacted, folded up like a seed, and planted into the minds of people who are willingly listening to a story. In this state, people are receptive to new information. The seed can be allowed to settle into the minds of men, women and children, and be allowed to mature and grow on its own through a natural process of unfolding. It is THEN, like in a garden, that the seed will take root, grow and flourish into its fullest potential. There's no guarantee that the seed will reach its fullest potential, but the odds are in its favor if the seed and environment in which the seed is planted is fertile and cared for from the beginning to the next cycle. Then the IDEA is truly conveyed through the proper channels, and a person can experience a dimension of Ascension and acquired wisdom over time. That is a very empowering experience for the Individual.
This is what I am proposing: the structuring of the verses of Genesis would make much more sense chronologically if there were some refinements in how one sees the Grand Arc of creation. This realization came to me one day when I remembered the passage,
Does not the above passage have profound implications? God is self-referential in a pluralistic sense. US. OUR. There is more than one entity that is God-Conscious. God-Conscious beings are having a conversation with one another, and it would imply that the conversation is about the Creation of Life. I have tangentially proposed in prior articles that a God-Conscious entity is a Singularity. A Singularity is something, someone, or some time from which accurate predictions break down because the physics of action or predictable outcomes beyond a certain threshold are unknowable. No one knows what happens inside a black hole, beyond the threshold of the event horizon. No one really knows what happens inside of someone's brain as information streams of the world are conveyed through the sensory input systems.
Science is feverishly animated towards understanding Consciousness and how the brain works. There are arguments about the nature of Consciousness and what gives rise to Consciousness. From the scientific perspective, it is theorized that Consciousness amounts to a "fusion" of different information streams, or reception of vibrations through the senses, combined in a parallel fashion with neuronal brain circuitry that is unique to each person, even in the setting of twins which are genetic clones of one another originating from the moment of conception. Twins will have different outcomes. This is a very materialistic view of what gives rise to Consciousness. It implies that our unique perspectives are deduced to only the activity and specific connections between our senses and our neural structures.
In one sense, that is true, but it is only part of the picture. Our unique sensory receptors combined with our unique neuronal pathways and give rise to a unique personality that give us the ability to navigate our reality with unique perspectives shaped by our contextual environment. That is unique.
On the flip side of the Origin of Consciousness, Consciousness is independent of the brain, and can exist independent of a host receiver. Consciousness, from this perspective, is a vibratory information transmission and a brain with sensory detectors is akin to a radio or television picking up a signal. This transmission pickup location amounts to a host for a Consciousness stream to interact with the material reality we are presently experiencing. It's a 3-D experience of a higher dimensional projection. Another way of describing this concept is that we are living in a what appears to be a materialistic, holographic construct.
In this sense, this is also true, and is a complimentary part of the picture. Consciousness persists beyond body constructs. Brains give rise to immediate memory recall within the context of the lifetime of the bodily experience, akin to Random Access Memory, but if the receiver source fails, then the Consciousness information transmission is no longer captive to the host mechanism and moves on towards its original destination. Destination, unknown.
Consciousness is a Singularity. Singularities are born out a moment where forces collide and coalesce around each other in complimentary ways to give rise to something new and novel. Let's step back then and ask the question, "Is it possible to define "God" as deified by the major and minor religions of present day?" The short answer is, "No, it is not." God is undefinable. No one knows the mind of God except for God. No one knows with absolute certainty the motivations of God's immediate actions, except God. So, God is a Singularity.
Coming back around to Verse 26, where "God" says, "Let us make man in OUR image." What does that sound like to you? It sounds like there were two God-Conscious Beings who decided to bring in a new Life, a new God-Conscious perspective, a new God-Conscious Entity to a shared reality construct. It sounds like, God chose to have a family.
So, in the act of Ultimate Love for God, Self-Love, God chose an old-as-time ritualistic dance in which the Immovable Object met the Unstoppable Force.
From the dance of the Immovable Object and Unstoppable Force arose a new Singularity, a Conscious Singularity.
Now, if we go BACK to the beginning of Genesis, at the Beginning of All Creation, how does it read?
The way Verses 1 - 25 reads are through the perspective of the newly created Conscious Singularity. This is my point. In order to articulate the idea from a chronological point of view that we can all identify with, we take verse 26 and start the story from that point as if it were verse 1. That a family of God-Conscious beings (our parents) decided to have a family, and as a result of ultimate Love, a Singularity (you) was born. The Singularity in and of itself is a God-Conscious entity that already has the ENTIRE instruction set of the Universe to create not only a body, but a Universe WITHIN the Singularity. Heaven is both inside and outside the construct of the Singularity. Verses 1- 25 of the Bible are how the New Singularity (conceived via the actions of verse 26) went about creating its internal Universe along with the plan of becoming self-aware and God-Conscious.
So how does a civilization that may go back much further than just five or ten thousand years describe our origins, where we come from, and where we are going? For descriptions of such epic lengths of time that can be concisely constructed, a parable or story is required that will approximate the truth in a way that does not take eons of time to tell the tale. It's a seed of information. Sometimes the seed takes root and grows, giving way to its potential. Sometimes the seed fails to take root. That's the nature of reality. But what it implies is that there is no "real" beginning beginning. Our present state of awareness arises within part of a frequency transmission that has no discernible beginning or ending. We're awake for this part of the journey, because it's Our time to be aware of the journey and be part of the energetic rise to a new level of reality and higher vibration of sensory experience.
That's the wonderful nature of our existence. We haven't performed the exact same motions in the past. This is all new experience. Our shared experience is one of an Ascended Consciousness on a massive scale. It's not been done this way before, and there is a lot of excitement and buzz in the air. I'm excited, are you? Get ready for the next Greatest Chapter ever told in the History of Our Story!
