Debunking The Athiest View of A Self Sustaining Conscious Universe and Speculating God's Spiritual Mind and Our Souls
Free to Share
Author requests article critique
The universe needs to be have created by someone. When someone denies the universe was created by someone they just assume the universe exists because it "exists", and the universe itself becomes a God-substitute. The person starts unconsciously or consciously thinking of the universe as a God-substitute whether they are aware of it or not. Many New-age thinkers say things like “The universe wanted us to be together”, or “If the universe wills it for us”, etc. The universe itself is not conscious; only God and the beings he created are conscious. With regards to consciousness, the universe is just as inanimate as a cup or spoon. The universe just like a cup or spoon, cannot will for you to do something or have a will for your life. It is God who created you and who has the will for your life.
It is God who has a transcendental mind and has a perfect will for your life. God the Father has a transcendental mind just as much as Jesus has a transcendental mind. He also has a transcendental mind just as the Holy Spirit has a transcendental mind. Thinking of God having a transcendental mind helps us to perceive the personality aspect of God the Father. God The Father too, is a person.
Given that God the Father, is a spirit with a transcendental mind that must mean that his mind or brain is not physical. Given that we are made in his image, is there some part of our brains/minds that are also not physical? Perhaps the non-physical part or essence of our minds that are non-physical and are made in the image of God’s non-physical spirit-mind is actually our souls. When we think about this we have to think of essence vs existence. Essence in itself is “whatness" and existence is “thatness". Perhaps our souls are the non-physical essence (whatness) of our minds that are made in the image of God’s Spirit-mind. Irregardless we are made in the image of God and that could include all spiritual aspects of him (minus his omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience,) including the spiritual aspect of his mind.
I believe that some spiritual aspect or essence (whatness) of his mind is implanted in each one of us and is related to us, and that very same spiritual aspect might be what we call our souls. I’m not saying in anyway that the spiritual aspect of our minds are extensions of God’s spirit-mind; I’m just saying that the spiritual aspect of our minds is perhaps made in the image of the spiritual aspect of God’s mind
