The Big Bang

Rays of Wisdom - Our World In Transition - The Big BangGeorges Lemaitre, 1894-1966, a Belgian Roman Catholic priest, astronomer and professor of physics at the French section of the Catholic University of Louvain was the first known academic to propose the theory of the expansion of the universe, widely misattributed to Edwin Hubble. He was also the first to derive what is now known as Hubble’s law and made the first estimation of what is now called the Hubble constant, which he published in 1927, two years before Hubble’s article. Lemaitre also proposed what became known as the Big Bang theory of the origin of the Universe, which he called his ‘hypothesis of the primeval atom’ or the ‘Cosmic Egg’. Over time, scientists built on his initial idea of cosmic expansion, which according to Lemaitre’s theory, could be traced back to the origin of the cosmos and led to formation of the modern Universe.

The first vague understanding of these concepts could have been the source of the Bible’s St. John 1:5: ‘The word was in the beginning and that very word was with God and God was that word. The same was in the beginning with God. Everything came to be by His hand and without Him not even one thing that was created came to be. The life was in Him and the life is the light of people. And the same light shines in darkness and the darkness does not overcome it.’

Yes, in the beginning was the word. The word was with God and the word was God. The creative thinking of God is and always was God. Every idea first has to shape itself in the realm of Fire into the form of a thought, so that with the help of words it can transmit itself to our consciousness where it can be understood as a thought, the sphere of the Air element. By the power of His thoughts, the masculine aspect of the Divine, the God, guided by the love and wisdom of His counterpart, the Goddess, creates and destroys matter, brings whole new worlds and everything that is in them into manifestation and gets rid of them again, once they have outlived their usefulness.

The Universal Life Force, Father/Mother of all life, known as God, thinks and experiences itself through the worlds and the creatures it brings into being, including us. Any Eureka moments we enjoy on the Earth plane in truth are Its gifts. All humankind’s creative ideas have their origin in this source, although many like to think of them as their own. Ideas transmit themselves as a thought to the feminine and passive Earth and Water element, to which we and our world belong, both genders alike. Through the power of thought the positive and masculine Air element adds to whatever already is in existence or still is in the process of being created or un-created, as the case may be.

God’s ideas and thoughts are constantly flowing into every aspect of physical life, including us and our bodies of clay, made from Earth and Water. Thought is the most powerful force in the whole of Creation and the thought processes transmit the creator’s ideas, including those that come to you and me, to our feminine and receptive bodies of clay and our emotional water bodies and soul, where the memories of all previous lifetimes as well as the present one are stored. As all life is in God’s image, the same as everything else, each one of us is being shaped and modelled into what our Creator thinks of Him/Herself to be. By the power of Its intellect and thought processes the God models Its image into whole worlds and all its creatures and other lifeforms. God is the idea and thought and everything that is visible to our earthly eyes is the Goddess – and every cell and atom of it is imbued with the spirit of the whole and indivisible Divine Trinity.
