The underlying anatomy of consciousness cannot have arisen from matter by chance mutational events. The gist of the reasoning is that in a personal universe an image is literally the means by which the Second Law is contained (see other essays) – thanks to an image’s expectable and therefore matchable specificity and the fact that all life forms, according to this reasoning, are necessarily preceded by an image and therefore mind. There is no escaping this conclusion and the related idea that purposeful movement depends upon a regressive, energy-releasing gap between anticipation and actualization as defines a relationship to weightless infinity.
The scientific community fails to recognize that it is not enough to explain the physical basis for vision; the “light of self” which surrounds every image must also be explained. It becomes apparent that the relationship between the finite and the infinite defines the very nature of mind – a relationship manifesting as an image within an ambient surround of awareness. We experience this relationship to infinity as a very private bubble of awareness — a bubble that depends upon the ongoing restraint of an accelerating tendency toward weightlessness – for only an accelerating event has the momentum needed for initiating and sustaining the movement of a heavy body. And only if God, not matter, is fundamental can such acceleration produce an expectancy gap sufficient for explaining the light of personal awareness, a light which scientists typically ascribe to feedback loops and the general complexity of the brain.
