Essay—The Theory of One God (48)

Summary—This essay argues that the Church is in the middle between man and God and our challenge is to unite all the Churches around the world into a single denomination. Monotheism is the religious belief that there is only one God.

In his 1848 book entitled Eureka, Edgar Allan Poe foreshadowed the big bang theory by a hundred years as follows: “The universe begins when God creates a primordial particle out of nothing.  From it matter irradiates spherically in all directions in an inexpressibly great yet limited number of unimaginably yet not infinitely minute atoms.”  I would further argue that God did not create the primordial particle but is in fact the primordial particle Herself (aka. Eve).  As a man I have no interest in following the Father.  What interests me is the sweetheart Eve.  Since light is primitive to reality, I would also argue that God is a photon.  Eve then splits into two photons, the second of whom I will call Adam, who then splits into particles of matter and antimatter.  The splitting of particles is a traumatic event that expels Adam from Eden.  In that the God particle exists outside of spacetime, the big bang is ongoing.  Saint Augustine (354-430) claimed that the universe was created with time and not in time.  Thus the answer to what happened before the big bang is nothing.

The Cosmological Argument.  The cosmological argument is an a posterori argument for the existence of God first put forth by Aristotle (384-322 BC).  A priori means before experiment while a posterori means after experiment.  The cosmological argument is based on the idea that there is an uncaused first cause which sets everything in motion.  We know that the world exists and that it arguably began from a metaphorical line of dominos set in motion by God which ultimately produced reality as we know it.  However, owing to it’s a posterori nature, we cannot prove mathematically that another big bang would create life.  Christianity symbolizes God as an old man.  My theory of one proves mathematically that God is the lone photon in the universe and that the first cause is the uncaused big bang.

The Ontological Argument.  The original ontological argument was created by Saint Anselm (1033-1109).  It is an a priori argument for the existence of God—asserting that the conception of the perfect Being implies the existence of that Being outside the mind of man.  The crux of the argument lies with the notion that a perfect Being must necessarily exist for that Being to be considered perfect—for otherwise the Being would lack an essential component of perfection, namely existence.  My theory of one proves that God is the lone photon in the universe.  Sir James Jeans (1877-1946) said that God is a mathematician.  Niels Bohr (1885-1962) said that the complementary principle is the realization of two incompatible, different perspectives of the same phenomena—in this case, God.  Based on the complementary principle, my ontological argument is that God is both the lone photon and a mathematician.  To follow God wherever She leads is to follow the argument wherever it leads.  My argument is simple, beautiful, explains everything and is therefore true.  Anselm’s argument proves the existence of God.  My argument reveals the nature of God.

The Theory of One.  According to William Barrett, reason was a Greek invention.  While the Egyptians used the Pythagorean Form as an empirical rule-of-thumb in building pyramids, it was Pythagoras (582-500 BC) who first proved it to be a mathematical truth.  The macrocosmos of relativity theory is the universal law of spacetime and reveals that spacetime dilates as a function of velocity relative to lightspeed in accordance with the Pythagorean Form—ie. h^2 + (v/c)^2 = 1^2,  h = height, v = velocity,  c = lightspeed.  According to relativity theory—if v = c then h = 0—thereby indicating a boundary of spacetime.  On the other hand, according to Newtonian physics, if v = c then h = 1.  My theory of one unites relativity theory and quantum theory by proving that lightspeed and Planck’s constant are the same boundary of the universe.  The photon exists at this boundary while electrons pass back and forth across this boundary.

Exiting the Universe.  In characterizing relativity theory, consider for a moment an astronaut named Elvis traveling through space.  If Elvis were to somehow achieve lightspeed, he would be reduced to zero height and would exit the universe.  It would of course be impossible for Elvis to actually achieve lightspeed, given that such an endeavor would require all of his mass be converted into energy in accordance with Einstein’s famous E = mc^2 equation.  However, it is interesting to note that, by definition, photons travel at lightspeed—thus implying that they must exist outside the spacetime continuum.  As such, one could imagine a universe populated by a fantastic number of photons zipping around the periphery.  The question is—Why would the universe need more than one photon if they exist outside of space-time?  The answer to the question is that there is only one photon.  Based on Ockham’s razor, the argument is that one photon is God and is mathematically true given that it is simple, beautiful and explains everything.

Christ and Muhammad.  Christianity was created around a single prophet named Jesus Christ (5 BC-30 AD).  Christ criticized those who preached compassion but then failed to show it when pressed to do so.  Like the Jews and Muhammad, Christ argued for monotheism.  He embraced the story of Adam and Eve and Adam’s fall from grace.  Christ was crucified by the Roman’s and his death marked a great rupture in Western thought.  Muhammad (570-632) was an Arab merchant who became the prophet and founder of Islam.  Islam means the peace that comes from surrendering to the will of God.  Before Islam, Allah was one of many gods worshiped.  Muhammad advocated the worship of the one God, Allah.  He also taught the acceptance of both Christian and Jewish prophets.  Muslims also considered Muhammad to have resurrected the unbroken monotheistic faith of Noah, Abraham, Moses and Christ.

Greek Geometry.  According to the Greek Plato (427-347 BC) true or a priori knowledge must be certain and infallible and it must be of real objects or Forms like the Pythagorean Form.  Mathematics is thus the systematic treatment of Forms and relationships between Forms.  It is the science of drawing conclusions and is the primordial foundation of all other science.  Saint Augustine carried forward Greek thought from the failing classical world to the emerging medieval, Christian world—a project that came to be known as the Medieval synthesis.  For twelve hundred years the flame of philosophy and science lit by Augustine burned ever so lowly under the agonizing oppression of the Church.  Copernicus published On the Revolution of Celestial Orbs in 1543 mathematically proving the theory of heliocentricity (ie. the planets orbit the sun).  And then by inventing and using of the telescope, Galileo (1564-1642) provided empirical validation of heliocentricity—for which the Church sentenced him to life in prison.  The French philosopher and mathematician René Descartes (1596-1650) shared Galileo’s views and envisioned the masterful strategy of presenting these revolutionary ideas to the Church in a way that the Church believed the ideas were their own.  His heroic plan succeeded thereby bringing to an end the Medieval period and initiating the philosophic and scientific Renaissance of the 17th century.

Arab Algebra.  While the Church was jumping up and down on everyone’s head in the Western world for over a millennium, Arab mathematicians like al-Khwârizmî (780-850) were carrying the ball in founding algebra and algorithms.  An algorithm is the procedural method for calculating and drawing conclusions with Arabic numerals and the decimal notation.  Both the terms algebra and algorithm stem from the God, Allah.  According to Arab philosophy, mathematics is the way God’s mind works.  The Arabs believe that by understanding mathematics they are comprehending the mind of God.  In fact the core of their religion lies with the belief that people must submit to the will of God—meaning mathematical arguments.  

Analytic Geometry.  The Latin version of al-Khwârizmî’s work is responsible for a great deal of the mathematical knowledge that resurfaced during the Renaissance.  In fact, the notion that mathematics and God are the same thing was adapted as the foundation for the Renaissance by thinkers like Descartes, Pascal, Fermat, Newton, Locke and Berkeley.  Then, in 1640 in what John Stuart Mill called the single greatest advance in the history of science, Descartes conceived analytic geometry by synthesizing Greek geometry with Arab algebra.  The significance of this founding of modern mathematics is best understood in light of the fact that mathematicians from that point forward had two complimentary and fundamentally different ways of viewing the same Forms.  Einstein first introduced relativity theory in 1905 as a simple set of algebraic equations, yet the theory was largely ignored until four years later when Minkowski presented a geometric view of relativity as characterized by the four-dimensional spacetime continuum.

Conclusion.  This essay proves mathematically that the Christian God and the Muslim God are one in the same.  The Canadian Constitution says that we recognize the supremacy of God—but it does not define God.  Therefore, we must amend the Constitution to say who God is—which is a mathematician, the lone photon and the laws of nature.  In our schools we must teach mathematics from a historical perspective.  Uniting the Churches is a necessary and sufficient step for achieving world peace.  Finally, we must not forget that the word religion means a reconnection with reality.  The Theory of One God is the new religion for the Third Millennium.
