Explaining Mind in a Universe of Matter
The neurological evidence goes deep to prove that an image, thanks to its expectable finitude (or boundedness), is the sole means by which a universal tendency toward increasing disorder (the Second Law) is restrained – with the understanding that infinity (and/or nonexistence) is implicit to the momentary absence of an anticipated finite image and that it is against this probability that in a God-centered world the self sees itself as finite or “conscious.” In other words, consciousness – in the very image of God – is an ongoing relationship to weightless nonexistence.
This means that all matter, and therefore the Universe itself, is tightly bound to an image in the mind of God; indeed, the Universe is this image, a claim requiring that we do in fact live and move and have our being in God and that God, not matter, is fundamental – not as some religious bias but as the only way to explain how consciousness, the brain, and the laws of physics fit together with precision. Creationism, you will see, is the more scientific perspective – a biased speculation on the surface, but a conclusion staunchly confirmed by the way the visual system is connected to the brain’s weight- and temperature-regulatory core where disorder is minimized by the expectable and matchable finitude (and specificity) of an image.
Extrapolating to the Universe as a whole, we begin to see that everything from superstrings to supernovae depends upon an image – in the mind of God. We also see that E = mc2 is a concise expression for how light (one of the biblical definitions of God) and consciousness are one and the same; not to mention how the body mass is sustained by the way a regressive tendency toward nonexistence releases and channels energy (and light) into the creation and sustaining of an image as anticipated through tiny moments of time.
