Proof for the existence of God can be found in the structure of an atom the design of which in many respects parallels the human brain. Both have an axial center which balances and modulates peripheral activity. The tiniest superstrings of atoms oscillate between existence and nonexistence; while the brain, whose physical roots are superstrings, similarly oscillates between the finite and the infinite. Both are highly differentiated and dependent upon regression for the release and channeling of energy into their created form. But perhaps the most striking parallel is in their regressive production of light: the photon and, for us, the light of self — which we usually refer to as “consciousness.” When an electron drops to a lower orbit a photon is released. When a proton and antiproton collide, each is regressively annihilated and a photon is released. When the probability of nonexistence is initiated by the momentary absence of an anticipated image, consciousness results. Consciousness, as explained in other posts, is a relationship to our potential nonexistence.
I have applied the concept of regression to what we know about neurological development and differentiation to show how the progressive lateralization of motor neurons, resulting in the more peripheral movements required for writing and speech, allows for an ongoing tendency for behavior to regress — to the time when behavior was more childlike and ultimately to when we were weightless. Initially in development, axial (whole body) movement predominates over what in later development is the more highly differentiated movement of our more peripheral body anatomy. This means that speech and other highly differentiated movements (e.g., writing) have split off from more primitive, less differentiated movement tendencies – thereby creating the capacity for regressively releasing and channeling the body’s energy into purposeful, socially appropriate movement. In a nutshell, a tendency to regress to more primitive, less differentiated behavior is the form that a regressive change takes – relative to infinity as encoded within the brain and body. The energy released is channeling into movement and the creation of an anticipated state or image – the absence of which sets up the contrast with infinity in the first place.
It is not coincidental that every image consists focal and more peripheral qualia, with the relationship between them precisely paralleling the progressive, axial-peripheral nature of all motor behavior – paralleling the behavior of atoms. This axial-peripheral design helps us to see how an anticipatory gap intrinsic to an image is equivalent to an ongoing disparity between one anticipated and actual body mass and the corresponding regressive release and channeling of energy – assuming only that the “anticipation of infinity” somewhere way “out there” can have no relevance to what is going on within the brain unless infinity and God have been encoded within the logic of neural design.
The binding problem, a close cousin to the “hard” question of science, is resolved – but only if God, not matter, is fundamental and a regressive tendency toward nonexistence in the incipient absence of an anticipated state or “image” depends ultimately on His immanence within our brains. This is what the cortico-limbic design of the brain loudly proclaims. The atom functions similarly as evidenced by the way photons are released when an electron drops to a lower orbital, or when other energy-releasing, regressive events take place. Superstrings oscillate between creation and annihilation in releasing and channeling energy into the creation of matter — a phenomenon also seen in the symmetry between particles and antiparticles, paralleling the interface in the brain between order and disorder. This interface is an image. It is in this sense that every atom proves the existence of God.
