The scientist who accepts pure reason (metaphysics) and God ought to turn his or h
er mind away from the thoughts of those atheists, evolutionists, and naturalists who say that man’s mind is a shadow of the human brain and is thus not a thing. This scientist will also reject Darwin’s evolutionary theory and the Big Bang theory of the field of physics.
This scientist will also turn to Table IIa
.1, p.105 of my book to learn that originals measure their images. So, God measures our mind and our mind, which becomes an image of a conceptual world, conceives and measures God’s created world. Since man cannot make living things, this godly scientist might want to study the French book Thinking by Machine
by Pierre de Latil
). I believe that this book can assist the self development of a person’s mind. Further, I suggest the study of the Gospel of Thomas
. As I say in my book, the teachings of Jesus Christ are focusing on the human mind and the conceptual world, which Jesus calls the kingdom of God. Furthermore, I suggest the study of the works on ‘things’ by Friedrich Hegel.
As I say in my book, spiritual atoms form all created things. These atoms separate living things and nonliving. Nonliving things form a structure that makes living things possible. So, nonliving things form an infrastructure for all life. Living things are plants and animals. So, in my conceptual world, one finds God, infrastructure for life, and life.
God is a thing (in itself). As such a thing, God acts to create other things, which are images of God. So, God is absolute negativity and can be named as "Not-other." I suggest the study of the book On Not-other
by Nicholas of Cusa
. God is determinate and has essential qualities. When the infinite God is given the name Not-other, one learns that all created things, because they are finite, can also be defined using the negative. For instance, Cusa
says that ‘sky’ and a hot thing can be defined respectively
as --- the sky is not other than the sky
and the hot thing is not other than the hot thing
. With these simple definitions, he finds, for instance, that in a hot thing, what is not-hot is the hot thing
. Thus, in all things one can conclude that in a thing, what is not-thing is a thing
. In my theory of the universe, the not-thing
is a spiritual atom. Every created thing thus has a purpose, is different, is independent, is in the presence of negativity (God and other finite things), and has necessary and contingent qualities.
