The rest is delegated to lesser beings who design lesser things.
In being the greatest
being of all, God therefore designed only the greatest things of
all, that which cannot be created by any other being in existence.
That thing is existence itself.
Therefore God did not
design everything in existence.
This is about an infinite being exploring its infinite potential
through an infinity of finite beings.1
Some higher being must have designed those laws,
but that higher being did not design everything that resulted as a
consequence. Thus if a rock is stirred by the wind and falls off a
cliff then splits in two upon hitting the ground, the two halves
were not designed by the higher being, rather it was blindly
“designed” by nature through the convergence of deterministic
factors that lead to it splitting in a certain way.
Life is just the deterministic consequence of atoms coming together to form molecules, and those molecules deterministically combining to form DNA, and so on. But as quantum physics has shown, not everything is deterministic.
The laws of physics alone are not enough to account for everything that happens. For instance, nothing of science can predict when exactly a radioactive particle will decay. Some mysterious factor originating outside the physical universe determines the timing. This mysterious factor cannot be found within the physical, thus it is metaphysical.
And so the existence of God is proven through the inability of
atheism and scientific materialism to offer up material causes for
Chemicals combine according to known laws, and chemical reactions can be predicted to perfection because nature blindly obeys its programming without the freewill to deviate. But when a system of atoms and molecules becomes complex and sensitive enough that quantum processes at the subatomic level begin influencing big changes on the macroscopic scale, that is when factors outside the physical universe start influencing processes within the physical universe.
That is when the transcendent infinite God, or at least an
infinitesimal extension, penetrates into the physical universe and
begins locally influencing it.
physical and metaphysical then grow in complexity through a mutual
feedback loop whereby a more complex body enriches the spectrum of
experience available, and the resulting growth in
allows for greater influencing of the physical system toward more
And natural factors like cosmic rays can disrupt DNA to
create mutants with a survival advantage. Such random mutations are
shots in the dark, however. There are too many harmful mutations
possible versus healthy ones to account for the successful evolution
of species toward stronger and healthier ones.
refuses to distinguish between these in an effort to pin everything
on material causes and turn a blind eye to everything metaphysical.
What lesser beings?
If consciousness can couple to the body due to its complexity, then why not a group consciousness that couples to the greater ensemble of members of that species?
This would be an intelligence with some level of purpose and intent since its own growth is at stake, and that would shape the types of “random” mutations that occur. Probability can be bent so strongly that irreducibly complex structures may form that are otherwise too complex to be formed solely by nature. If telekinetics can bend spoons and move objects with their minds, consciousness can influence genetics.
familiar with occult principles, the physical is patterned after etheric structures, and the latter is what is molded by
consciousness. If the consciousness outgrows its bodily form, an
impulse could arise that drives a rapid series of purposeful
mutations toward a more suitable form.
Further, even if it were extremely improbable for life to arise on a planet, such that according to calculations earth is virtually the only planet that ought to have life, the fact that we can and will achieve interstellar space travel and master genetic engineering means one world can seed life on another, meaning we ourselves are likely seeded, modified, or created by those from other worlds who matured before us.
Thus sentient life in one place in the universe can spread to other places, multiplying life exponentially, and offsetting whatever dismal chances of life are allotted by the most pessimistic of scientific calculations.
In other words, sentient life spreading
life elsewhere is not taken into account by the
Drake Equation or
any other traditional science calculations.
A few other species like cats and pigs are also odd enough in their characteristics and rapid appearance in history to warrant suspicion of having been genetically engineered. Other species on earth evolved on their own through natural and self-directed intelligent evolution.
God is the watchmaker who set
it all into motion and then experiences it, intervening theistically
only when nothing else can.
Bruce Lipton explains how our own consciousness can modify our DNA through epigenetic processes.
I strongly recommend
everyone check out their works.
The truth is a combination of all of
these, depending on the case.
