A text dating back to the second half of the 14th century named the Cloud of Unknowing by an anonymous Christian mystic writer states that we will only understand the concept of God by surrendering to this idea: we will never ever know God and cannot even begin to understand what God is, even slightly. This impossibility we must face and accept in full humility, and only by doing this will we start to get closer to the concept of God.

Faith is part of our brain mechanism, it is inscribed in our beings and works as a physiological need. If we stop believing we just die. Believing is like drawing perspectives in your mind or on a piece of paper, the process belongs to the same need.

French philosopher Gilles Deleuze said that you can’t create a concept if there isn’t a necessity behind it. When the scientist Thomas Metzinger says that the brain within its own process isn’t able to even understand itself as it is enveloped in “a special form of darkness” it raises the question of how and why we conceptualized this idea of God.

“We live in a world with no God at all, God is an idea, or an ideal”

Our mind floating in its own darkness as Nietzsche described is a ruling aristocracy; a consciousness of a higher order. It is an architecture of perception in perpetual movement, and this architecture is created as a receiver and a transmitter. Therefore in order to catch special waves of information and sensations, it is of extreme necessity to refine it as much as possible because the brain is so subtle and powerful that it must be trained constantly. 

I don’t believe that God is dead. I just believe he is not here, at least not in the space we are. He created our space by retiring himself from it, and by doing this, he made the most humble act of creation. We live in a world with no God at all, God is an idea, or an ideal, and only faith is able to bring us closer to the idea of God. A faith in something that is simply not there and yet so strong. I believe having faith in something that doesn’t exist is the hardest intellectual experience you can ever go through; it is the essence of art.

In my opinion, what we call God also has faith in us, and if we are made to his image, as it is said, then we are also an idea; essentially an idea generated by another idea.

I believe the material world is just a visual expression of vibration and energy. Beyond the surface lies a world of sublime possibilities, a world that is constantly in movement, a world that contains all of the potentiality. But I have a question: how can we access this world?

Dr. Christian Hellwig of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen says something interesting: “Our thoughts, our will, our consciousness and our feelings show properties that could be referred to as spiritual properties…No direct interaction with the known fundamental forces of natural science, such as gravitation, electromagnetic forces, etc. can be detected in the spiritual. On the other hand, however, these spiritual properties correspond exactly to the characteristics that distinguish the extremely puzzling and wondrous phenomena in the quantum world.” Of a similar opinion, Quantum physicist David Bohm, a student and friend of Albert Einstein, stated, “The results of modern natural sciences only make sense if we assume an inner, uniform, transcendent reality that is based on all external data and facts. The very depth of human consciousness is one of them.”

Scientists today are obliged to admit that the universe is “immaterial-mental and spiritual”. The universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion.”

“Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion”

If we are able to influence matter with our thoughts as it has been proven, keep this idea in mind and the next time you see a cloud, observe it closely, look at it flying above you like an idea flying in your mind, and try to change its shape with your own thought.

I tried, and it worked.
