Making My First Scientific Proof of God Clearer, III
This negation also tells us that God created our universes by contracting those of his own attributes that form his intelligent design of the universe. For instance. when God creates, his One is contracted to many, his Equality is contracted to difference, his Union is contracted to relation, and his Infinite is contracted to finite. Thus, God, who lives in a higher world, creates our lower world by using a contraction process.
The contraction process is not limited to a God who can creates worlds. humans can also apply the contracting process. I played with friends in the local forest when I was a young boy. There, we made our own bows and arrows. To make a bow we would use the straight stem of a hickory tree, remove its branches, bend the stem, and hold the curved bow stem with a string at both ends of the stem As little creators, we created a curved bow by contracting the straight stem of a hickory tree.
When a person's mind uses Plato's negative, the mind is not seeking the contrary of phenomena in order to create a pair of excluded middle opposites. Today's logicians do not understand negative thinking. They don't understand, for instance, that the atom bomb was created only by negating a form of different and dirty radiation material that we can't destroy today.
