|The ultimate question
Beyond the implications of evolution

The question of whether there is a 'god' is an inevitable question, but it isn't
the Ultimate Question. The Ultimate Question is 'What is the nature of existence?'
or 'What is Reality?' The answer to this question is required for the survival of
our species. This question has been answered, however, the answer is understandably
unwelcome in virtually every quarter.
Before one can even talk about the factual nature of existence, one has to gain an
understanding of why humanity is in such a mess in the first place. Although Homo
sapiens, physically, is an intelligent life form, it remains unable to use that intelligence
in organized groups or societies. Nor can even the individual tap that intelligence
unless one is willing to operate on factual evidence, as opposed to instilled belief.
This means overriding virtually everything you have been taught about what existence
is, the instilled foundation premises upon which you operate!
Instilled belief is the predominate means of social control. Whether you were born
in Iran, the United States, or the jungles of the Amazon, your culture will have
instilled in you, not only religious belief, but the concept of a non-rational universe
based on some form of 'Creation' and supernatural force. This orients the individual
to being controlled by Authoritarian Force. This suppresses independent thought,
reasoning and questioning, as well as degrading the individual's self image and worth.
Religion provides the rationale for government by authority and force.
The reciprocal reality is that all energy and control is intrinsic to matter itself.
Matter is inextricable from motion, cycling ring systems of motion at the speed of
'c', light speed, is the basis of physical structure. The fundamental, smallest particle
of existence, is a unit volume of massless motion, the fundamental stuff of existence,
which latches together with others to form ring systems resulting in the Primary
Particles, the smallest measuraable enclosed 'bodies' in existence.
The fundamental unit volumes cannot be detected, as such, but must be calculated
from a known referent, in this case the radius of the electron. This calculation
requires working with the geometric requirements of motion, using Laplace Mathematics,
modified by keying it to the scale of the electron. [See speciesup.org].
Yet, the individual has evolved to learn and become effective within factual physical
environments. Since intelligent life is also gregarious, it is only natural that
we recognize the necessity of mutual facilitation, in terms of both necessities and
amenities. 'Morality' doesn't issue from the supernatural, it is an aspect of truly
intelligent life. 'Morality', more accurately, 'ethos', springs from factual knowledge,
the insight as to what is necessary for effective human systems.
The 'God 'question should be dealt with first because of its inherent imponderables
and absurdities; but more importantly because religious belief blocks both the recognition
and acceptance of any and all reciprocal reality! The 'God', discussed here is the
contemporary god of Creation, believed to be both omnipotent, omniscient and eternal,
the Ultimate God we fight over.
A problem immediately arises in the assumption of creation, first because it assumes
'magic'. e.g.: 'Let there be light'. If the Universe was Created, and all that existed
before was a God and his will or his 'word', what created the God? Magic is purely
an absurdity, assuming that something of endless complexity could appear where nothing
If existence was Created twelve thousand years ago or twelve billion years ago, or
any other point in time one cares to suggest, one is immediately met with the absurdity
that, if 'God' is eternal, how could he(or it) Create the Universe in the midst of
Eternity? If Existence was Created, requiring a Creator, where, when and what Created
the Creator, and that Creator and that Creator, and ... Absurdity! There is never
real evidence for that which does not exist. Nature provides evidence only of real
things and aspects of real things.
Also, there can be no boundary to space, volume, beyond which there would not be
more space, therefore, space is boundless. Space is the absence of matter. Since
matter moves freely in space, every entity being naturally autonomous, active,
doing what it is, and there being no way to ascribe a limit to time (duration), there
can be no boundary beyond which more matter would not exist in space. The universe
is boundless and three dimensional, it is not expanding, but is a continuum of endless
ongoing development, degeneration and renewal through gravitational recompression.
The very concept of 'God' carries its own fatal absurdities.
However, there is something we can do related to the Ultimate Question, 'What is
existence?', we can dissect it and we can discover how it works, and this has been
human animal, able to reason and having gained the intellectual tools of Science,
can discover what factual existence is. We do this by going to the Ultimate Referent,
Existence itself, the only system that is completely unified and free of discrepancy.
It should be understood, however, that the production of 'Theory' is not Science.
Objective reality is measurable and exists independently of cognizance. The discovery
of reality requires moving beyond theory to measurable reality. A theory is no more
than an opinion.
The survival of the human species depends upon its ability to drop belief and begin
following factual evidence, becoming oriented to factual reality in our larger numbers.
Cultural delusion is the lethal pathogen that must be dissolved. All that is required
is the reciprocal Knowledge, which will replace the instilled Belief. When the individual
discovers the reality, the delusion is gone.
