Certain “facts” of General Revelation were adduced earlier in support of the view of the Trinity presented here. It would be good at this time to expand upon the “understanding” of the nature of our created reality that our best secular minds are putting forth. Science is not the enemy that it is supposed it is because, rightly understood, it is wooing the rational (secular) mind back to its Creator. Witness the words of Sheldon Glashow, Nobel Laureate in Physics, lamenting that “contemplation of superstrings may evolve into an activity as remote from conventional particle physics as particle physics is from chemistry, to be conducted at schools of divinity by future equivalents of medieval theologians…for the first time since the Dark Ages, we can see how our noble search may end, with faith replacing science once again.”
The early luminaries of the “new physics” - Quantum Theory – were shocked to discover that the twin rails of classical physics, determinism and objectivity, had melted away leaving their “train of thought” up in the air, so to speak. That is, the cold hard “material” world of everyday reality had disappeared before their very eyes. Again, let the witness of Niels Bohr, one of its earliest pioneers, confirm the very thing that Hebrews 11: 3 testifies to : “everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” Some few years later another of humanity’s brightest minds in this field, Sir James Jeans, asserted that “the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the Universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine.”
So much more evidence is available to anyone who wishes to hear true science (true knowledge) beginning to sing, again, the song of its Creator. This leaves us right where the word of God has long told us that we really are : living, and moving, and having our being in Him (Acts 17:27-28). This great imposing phenomenal world of concrete mountains and endless galaxies is an ingenious non-material construct that is -- as Max Planck, the originator of Quantum Theory, asserted -- “derivative from consciousness.”
In the truest sense, then, Creation is as immediate “to” God as our dreams are to us. As a matter of fact, the “(non)-reality” we create in our dream state hints of how God makes the real world. We must stop being so “imposed” upon by the enormity and “concreteness” of the world around us because, TO GOD, it is made of the same “stuff” (of which our dreams are). Rather we should be imposed upon by our God before Whom the entire Cosmos disappears as “easily” as He made it appear.
So then, how did God make, with “the stuff that words are” (Psalm 33:6), a real world that is “other” than Him (even while it is) within His very own Being? As stated earlier, I AM makes “room” within Himself by being Trinity – “otherness” within Himself. When we understand the nature of reality, even our supposed “concrete” reality, we realize that, indeed, the world is the actual expression (word) of the thoughts of God within His own Being. There is a “real place” in God that is “other” than Himself because He has made the reality of “otherness” to exist by being “Otherness” Himself! This is not a dream, not an illusion, only because I AM is Trinity! He is right here, hidden in plain sight, less than a thought away, waiting for us to behold Him! Had Adam not sinned we’d not lost this intimacy – we would have matured within it. Now, because I AM IS Jesus we have it again right now, right here, forever! Spirit and soul rejoices, and soon our bodies will be bodies of joy!
