With Appreciation to God, Who Is the Creator of Our Universe that Logically Cannot Exist But Does!


H.           Appreciation and the Universe’s Origination

A poem:

Everything Is Possible and Nothing Is Impossible

The more things, the more possibilities.

As everything contains all things,

all possibilities are possible

only for everything.

Without variability, there is no possibility.

As nothing contains no variability,

and impossible is without possibility,

only nothing is impossible.


Never will logic comprehend our universe’s absolute origin. Let the world’s foremost cosmologists theorize about the Big Bang’s trigger. After, they could be asked, “From whence came this trigger?” The speculation, of course, would be of things smaller and smaller. But from whence came these smaller things?

Somewhat reflecting the ancient, religious understanding of Creation out of nothing (called, in Hebrew, yesh m’ayin, and in Latin, creatio ex nihilo), some scientists finally believe that the Big Bang, somehow, emanated from empty space. But, from where came empty space? . . . Surely, from something(s) less than empty space. However, less than empty, three-dimensional space—that is, two-dimensional space—cannot exist in our universe. Further, it is impossible to study the nonexistent. So, if the precursor of three-dimensional space can never be examined, we are, scientifically, forever unable to determine the absolute origin of our universe. We are in a box and can get out never.

From the above, those of a weaker faith—that is, those who have been wrongly swayed into the belief that science has somehow disproven the existence of God—should, please, recognize both the eternal limitation of human understanding and the folly of attempting to disprove what is beyond our comprehension.


Despite these limitations on human logic, we can, nonetheless, determine what we can determine. Therefore, hypothetically continuing the previous thread, even if two-dimensional space were possible in some universe prior to ours and from where ours sprang, from where came two-dimensional space? Surely, from a lesser, one-dimensional space. But, one-dimensional space is a misnomer in that space is binary: for space, there must be, at the least, a duality of theres: a there to a there, that is, from one end of the space to the other. (Of profound interest, Hebrew’s word for “heaven,” as in “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth,” literally means a “plurality of there” or “theres,” as in “heres and theres.”)

Because the one that was before the creation of two, that is, the singularity that was before the duality, cannot yet be even space, pure number one is—if the verb “is,” which describes an existence, can be rightly used—a lack of existence: a spaceless nothing.

Theoretically, at a black hole’s center, exists a point that is defined as a “singularity,” that is, “one-dimensional space.” However, despite this appellation, such a “singularity” is not truly singular (even if such a point is as close as can be gotten, in a dimensional universe, to one-dimensional space). After all, that a black hole’s singularity is some sort of point means that it starts and ends somewhere (e.g., after a black hole’s event horizon). And, if anything at all has a starting point, it is a dimensional multiple and not a singular.

According to traditional Judeo-Christian theology (again, yesh m’ayin/creatio ex nihilo), our universe was created from such a spaceless nothing. Or, rather, using honorific capital letters to denote deity, the universe emanated from (drumroll please) the Spaceless Nothing, the number One, Who is the universal Creator!

Paradoxically, while one, less than two, is obviously the least of all numbers, the number one before two’s creation is also the greatest number—more than infinity! Consider: pure one, which is absolutely nothing, is more than infinity (a word literally meaning “without a finish”). It is more because pure nothingness has both no end in addition to no beginning!

In Hebrew (and thereby, per Judeo-Christianity since both Jews and Jesus honor the original Biblical texts), this without-a-beginning-and-without-an-end, absolutely unlimited concept of the number One is the Creator. (This, also, is the Islamic concept of the Creator.)

Now, and again with a drumroll, to answer the age-old question of why we are all here . . . there can be no tangible reason for existence! There can be no rationale because a precedent is required for a reason; and, prior to the universe’s existence, there was nothingness. So, as the universe’s antecedent was nothing, there can be no explanation for why we are here. Thereby, without any reason, we could not have done anything to deserve our existence. Meaning, all of life must be a free gift! So appreciate and enjoy!
