Loving Oneness Now
I particularly liked this story, a joke sent to me on the internet, because it points up a fundamental difference between true Creation by Mind-as-Such (God's or ours) and the pseudo-creative acts through which we refashion, remodel or materially modify atoms and molecules that already exist. I have yet to hear of any scientists, even at CERN, who can truly create a new single particle or atom, and of course, I don't consider the Casimir effect, -- a space-"vacuum" full of polarized energy which has 'always' been there in space-time -- a valid human-made creation.
Where did all the particles and atoms that compose our universe come from in the first place? When something is materialized (manifested) such as thousands of loaves and fishes where do the molecules come from, and how are they instantly assembled. Only pure Mind-as-Such has the creative power to accomplish that, and the way that it is done is explained elsewhere on this website.
PS: I am not "getting at" most scientists with this joke, only (paradoxically) the materialist ones who cannot explain the existence of matter and energy. I consider myself a scientist, but one who has an unlimited vision of life, one that includes Mind-as-Such as the basis of all Life and matter in the Universe of Universes.
GOD AND THE SCIENTIST
Through his mind, a scientist makes contact with God and has this conversation with Him.
"God," says the scientist, "we don't need You any more. We scientists have finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing -- in other words we can now do what You did in the beginning."
"Oh, is that so," replies God curiously. "Tell me, how do you do that?"
The scientist grins. "Well," he says, "we can take plain dirt and form it into a likeness of You, and breathe life into it, thus creating man."
"Is that so?" says God, "This is very interesting. Please show Me."
So the scientist bends down to the earth at his feet and starts to mold the soil into the shape of a person.
"No, no, no!" interrupts God, "Get your own dirt!"
