Posts Tagged ‘Absolute value’

In my previous posts where I examined the Big Picture I had formulated several principles to underpin my theories. Conjugation principle,Inversion Principle,Uncertainty Principle,Cluster Principle and so on. There is one principle of which I had till now held back. What is Clean Slate principle? In order to explain it let me point out from the night sky.

There are several billions of stars, light of  which when added up must make the sky bright. Yet it does not. Supernovae of star sends materials helter-skelter across space creating new stars in its wake. Background radiation of the Big Bang still reaches us. With such persistence cosmic events leave their signature around. This being the case why we see the night still dark as though the light sent forth from stars is blotted out by an unseen hand? The sky, in a manner of speaking has become a clean slate.

Science explains this  as due to the nature of universe expanding at a rate that starlight shall not make the night seen as day. The nature of Day is as distinct as Night is the exclusion of light is. Day and Night are distinctly apart.  Nature of Truth as distinct from Falsehood is. In  short we have to see in the Objective Lessons of Nature, what makes them valid. Nature as a mirror to Truth. Man makes truth of Nature, truth of Experience, and Truth of Action  to justify himself. Absolute Value of Truth is not what he can demonstrate. Even so it is in context of Truth.

The Clean Slate Principle refers to Absolute certainties against which every finite value has to come up against. Thus we use our free will to explain the nature of evil. Do we not use sophistry to explain that God as Omniscient Being must have known evil beforehand?  If He knows evil He cannot be Good? We weave our own ropes of reason to hang ourselves with.

In the analogy of night sky light supplied by various sources is still rendered as though these were null owing to the expanding sky. Similarly in the run off of march of events supplied by good and evil motives, consciousness of evil on God’s part is negated by power and wisdom of God. He is not the conscience keeper of the evil one. Bad motives come from a different source than good motives that a man keeps and acts upon are in keeping with His commandments. So man who suffers like a wrongdoer for the good that he did out of good conscience is in His keeping.   Clean Slate principle makes God free from any unfairness or partiality .

Is God partial? I may sound contradictory.God or Truth being absolute is impartial. Then if the righteous I mean those washed by the blood of Christ,-the manifestation of Love as collateral with Truth or Just draw from the Nature of Things and from the interplay of Wisdom and power do we say that God was unjust? Nature as mirror of God in wisdom and power creates what may seem to us miracles. Shall we accuse God of favoritism? Can eye accuse the body ‘why I see evil?’ Ear of the person has already lent itself to hear  what smacks of evil, and the eye is drawn along. Had the body renewed itself to weigh things as they are and not be swayed to the side of evil around the person, ear and the eye would have had saved themselves from the bother. The existing order of Nature is like the body. A miracle is nature on an improbable mode from our rational point of view. God is not stooping Himself to be partial but wisdom and power operating in Nature manifest as a miracle.That is all.

Here is the mystery of Born Again experience and miracle in a nutshell. Though born again a believer,-who had tasted His lovingkindness in the way he could have a renewal it is in the ways things operate.Such a person may still backslide and sink deeper into sin. God was not fooled by his fall. God is freed from what one does with good motives or  actively fall into sin on another occasion.

The Clean Slate principle states that we create evil, result of our finite nature. According to Cluster principle evil creates much more:  misery is another byproduct. The Clean Slate Principle states that evil resulting from man’s free will remains at finite level. Absolute value of Truth is undimmed by finiteness of truth we demonstrate.

God remains inviolate because of this principle.

God as Truth is not made any whit less because of truth as demonstrated by man.

It is in the nature of God, because God is  Love, to exercise this principle. Though our sins be as scarlet the Clean Principle can render as white as snow, to use a Biblical expression. This principle is in conformity with conjugation principle.

PS. Day is distinct from Night. Light of the Sun makes Day and Night though littered with stars and visible to us, is still Night. In this connection let me point out some men due to some accidents in their biology may be effeminate or genetically feminine. Has God gone wrong? In His eyes they are as distinct as man from woman is. God looks at the soul that is according to the Clean Slate Principle makes man and woman, distinct and clean. To God there is no confusion as we may have.(this is an amplified version of my previous post dated 18Feruary,2010)

Truth is absorbed into the very fabric of Nature, that does not lose its significance even when it is shown up as matter. It is in the heart of atom, that you may call micro cosmos; micro cosmos corresponds with our cosmos or macro cosmos. (ref: Correspondence principle) Truth is not compromised even when matter is compounded into identifiable objects. Every element is in context of Truth by which Cosmos holds together. We may see a part  of it and it is our visible  universe.

God is Truth that is the basis for all religions. In the case of Christianity core value is the belief that Jesus descended from God, and took the form of man; died  and ascended to the right hand of God.
God is also love. God as Truth remains constant whereas Love connects. When I speak of my beloved it means simply that I have someone to whom I am connected. Truth cannot change form but it can render love on the basis of Truth. If Jesus is in context of Truth so we are all,- as explained in the first section. Love incarnate (‘A body hast thou prepared for me’, so prophesied the Psalmist.) is Truth given a human face.

This story may be apocryphal. Young Will as a scholar studied in a grammar school in Stratford and he set himself passages to translate from Ovid, Virgil and other great writers of antiquity. Whenever he read them he let his fancies take control and he translated these in a manner his English teacher could not understand. He made up words in his native tongue to shade meanings that Ovid hadn’t meant in his metamorphoses.  His kindly teacher after correcting his composition, once  told him to stick to the original. Will defended himself thus: “ This may be bad grammar. But it makes what I mean to the closest possible.”
“Perhaps you are right, Master Will,” his master said dryly, “ If you cannot bear the original and show your respect to Ovid now how shall you expect us to respect you as a writer later on?”
English in the youth of William Shakespeare was not what it had become in the post- Elizabethean age. A language grows and usage of a word may gain currency or fall into disuse. English as we know Old, Middle, Elizabethean or of any other period is still English: even at the heart of such changes there must be some certain core value to give such changes their relevance. This core value separates English from gibberish.
Truth is the core value that gives relevance to us.
I subscribe that absolute value to God. Take that article of faith away from our lives all our morality, art and culture,- nay everything that makes us humans is thrown into confusion.
