The God Particle

Powerful! I cant stress these
an environment where the Universe is not created yet. Space and time are local effects
determined by matter that randomly appears according to the laws of
randomly appearing matter are virtual particles which are not permanent because you cannot create matter out
of nothing. These particles exist
for an amount of time inversely proportional to the energy it takes to
create them The probability that a
particular particle will be created is also inversely proportional to its
energy. The more energetic the
particle, the shorter time it exists.
And, the rarer it is.
particles can interact with the Universe and have lasting effects for as
long as they exist.
an infinite amount of time, particles of ALL energies will be created.

is only required to have as much energy or a certain amount more than the Universe, so would
also contain a finite amount of energy.
Everything in the Universe
boils down to energy. In addition to
the regular forms of energy such as light and motion (electricity is moving
electrons while heat is moving atoms etc.) matter can also be converted into
energy by the equation E=mc^2 (you can look that up else ware). Even space its self is composed of energy. Due to the fact that energy and matter are interchangeable, if
the universe contained an infinite amount of energy, gravity would be
infinite. We all know what would happen
Due to point 5, a particle with
the power of God MUST come into existence at some point. A God Particle if you wish. However, due to the immense amount of energy
inherent to the God Particle, it would only exist for an infinitesimal amount
of time. Fortunately point 4 allows the
God Particle to create a universe before blinking out of existence. If that’s not what your looking for, read
on. All is not lost.
What is Consciousness?
As far as we can tell,
consciousness is the organized flow of information in a significant amount
causing the system to become self aware.
Ok, what does that mean? A
neuron sends out tendrils to up to a few hundred other neurons and sends
uncomplicated electrical and chemical signals to them. They also respond in a fairly simple manner
to stimulus from other neurons.
What is the difference between
our neurons and those of most other animals?
Not much. In the higher animals,
you really can’t tell the difference.
So why are we self aware and other animals aren’t (a case can be made
for a few of the exceptional ones)? It
seems that once you have enough neurons communicating, the system becomes self
Since our civilization is also
a system where we have billions of people exchanging information immensely more
complicated than our neurons signals to practically anyone on earth via phone,
books, the internet, etc. We could be
just like cells of the brain of a higher level being. Unaware that the report we are writing is the spark of an idea
for a planetary intelligence.
[Sidebar about DNA (may not
make any difference) – There is another possible curious system which is also
multi tiered. Only a very small amount
of information on the DNA in a cell codes information for the cell. DNA also contains information for coding all
the other cells in the body as well as how to put them together to make a
person. However after the Human Genome
project was completed, they found that only ten percent of the DNA codes for
the human body. The other 90% they
If you were a cell, you would
consider the information that doesn’t pertain to you junk. Is it possible that
90% of our DNA is coding for something far more complex than just a human? Three billion lines of code of which we only
use thirty million. Could this “junk”
really be coding for a higher level intelligence?]
A Possible Plan
Now I don’t think that I “know
the mind of God” but I think I can put some general principles to work. It is a common theme that we are made in
God’s image. The one thing that all
life has in common (other than most of it’s DNA) is the need to perpetuate
themselves whether it is to live as long as possible (survival instinct), have children to put a little of ourselves
in someone else that will live on, or cloning as in microbes.
God, as we have already
established, is incredibly smart. A being
that has the power and intelligence to create the Universe could surely
contemplate His own demise. In point 4 we know that even the virtual particles
can have lasting effects. In Seeing that He had a very short time to exist, God carefully crafted
all the laws of the Universe, the four forces, and all the matter to exacting
specifications in order to form a universe in which would bring forth
intelligent beings. This was God’s
survival plan to keep Himself going forever.
In one flash, The God Particle
being incredibly intelligent, powerful, efficient and in a hurry, created our
Universe. The most efficient and
fastest way to create a universe full of intelligent beings is in one enormous,
extremely calculated burst such as the Big Bang and let it run for a few
The Plan Comes Together
As the billions of years roll
by, exactly to God’s design, life starts to evolve all across the
Universe. It first starts in small
groups. Then as technology spreads,
allowing more and more people to communicate, the collective intelligence grows
in patches. Eventually the planet is
one being made of billions of people all communicating faster than even
individual cells in our brain. As we
reach out into space, we will eventually come into contact with other
civilizations looking for someone else.
This goes on and on until the entire Universe is filled with intelligent
creatures all communicating and thereby recreating the mind of God! He is His own creation.
Due to the second law of
thermodynamics, the energy in the Universe will be reduced to a state in which
communication is impossible. This is
called heat death. There is a
version of the Big Bang in which if
there is enough matter in the Universe, it will eventually collapse upon its
self and the process will start over.
This process can conceivably continue forever in a cycle where God
awakens, “sleeps”, and awakens again depending on how many beings are
communicating at the present time.
Implications of the Plan
I find it incredible how close
the implications of this plan fit so many of the Christian beliefs. We are God’s most precious creation. Because each one of us is recreating God,
God is inside all of us. He knows what
were thinking because we are all God.
This is why we should treat each other well. Follow the commandments.
Do not kill, do not steel, do not covet thy neighbors wife etc. All these things hamper the communication
between us in some way. When we hurt
each other, we hurt God. Do not commit
suicide He needs you. We can still do
what we want while still being connected to the collective. This solves the problem of free will and
destiny. They are not at odds. We know what the purpose of life is. Simply stay alive as long as possible and
make as many friends as you can! We can also see the connection of the Trinity
Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit in the three levels of intelligence – God,
humans, and brain cells. They are all
separate yet part of the same thing. As
God is waiting to regain His full strength, we see a parallel with a “second
coming”, God was here and God will come again.
Also, since The God Particle came about spontaneously outside of time
and space as we know it, restrained only to it’s own local effects, we can say
that no one created God and He was always here (as far as our Universe is
What are the Odds?
Since the energy in the
Universe and therefore God is finite, we can calculate the relationship between
the odds of a God Particle coming into existence and the universe coming into
existence spontaneously. If we were
ever able to figure out all the variables and solve that relationship, we could
say for instance that there was a 53% chance that God exists. It would seem at first that since the God
Particle must be more complicated than the Universe, the odds of the Universe
coming into existence on its own would be much greater. However, remember this – The human body is
incredibly more complex than a bicycle.
But humans came along naturally and no bike was ever seen until a person
