Where and how a man should live?
According to essenceism, the position of man in relation to universe can be better understood on the basis of two schemes of creation of universes carried out by the Original Being. The first of them concerns the whole of universe, to which I include everything in the universe, including animals, from which I exclude people for now. This pattern of creation shows a simple direct transition from the laws of nature to their embodiment in the form of a particular phenomenon that I called "being."
The second scheme applies only to humans. It constitutes a several-step transition, starting from the Heart of the Original Being, then through His Law and Energy, then through the Word being the direction of His Will, and finally the embodiment of the Creator's decision in the form of an "existing being". This means a unique act of creating a human being, i.e. each time the beginning of a new spiritual person emerges from the Creator's Personality and the newborn baby emerging from the woman’s womb of the person receiving that personality. This is the fundamental and colossal difference between people and other universes. Because of this, we call man the child of God.
It is good to know, therefore, that man is a separate entity existing in connection with the Original Being. Of course, our physical body is part of nature. However, both it and the entire physical universe play only a temporary and ministerial role in the task of bringing a spiritual person to a state of perfection and to take the position of master of universe in the company of the Creator. The above statement is one of the main ideas of essenceism.
The fact is that we significantly realize our position in the universe. Not only do we admire the complex structures functioning in the universe, but we have already discovered a lot of laws existing in nature, we have discovered the secrets of elementary particles and we have learned the transformations of various forms of energy. This is all the time accompanied by respect for the inscrutable vastness of the universe. We feel even greater respect for the mysterious laws of the spiritual world.
Comparing humanity's achievements in science and technology with existing structures on our planet and in the entire cosmos, we must conclude how scarce our knowledge is and what enormity of secrets is yet to come. We found an extremely rich nature and complicated universe, which we certainly did not create ourselves, and which the level of knowledge contained in them many times exceed all the achievements of our civilization in the last thousands of years.
What exactly is behind it? What is behind the phenomenon of the creation of the universe? What, and actually who is ahead of our knowledge in such a colossal way?
We can of course continue to avoid naming things, use surrogate terms such as "force majeure," "coincidence," or "mother nature," but it is more honest to use the concept of the First Cause's creative power. The time has come for rational knowledge of the creative act. Scientists have tried to do this for centuries, not necessarily believing in a God. What their predecessors had previously studied with old methods, now they are researching with new methods. They put forward further theses, check their correctness and draw the appropriate conclusions. That is why essenceism joined in these efforts to describe the Original Being.
When will the universe's development process end? Probably never, because I say that the Creator is constantly expanding His Creation, ahead of us by a time that is difficult to define with human senses. It seems that new development paths are still open for us. For now, we only discover what exists within our reach and develop it further. So this process should go on forever. We are surrounded by a universe for which we are not an indifferent being. It is just the opposite. As a result of giving man a dominant position in the universe, he became responsible for his eternal existence. That was how it was supposed to be in the original plans of the Creator and it will be someday when we finally understand the sense of the creation of the universe.
By design, we are all heirs to the Original Being that started the development of the universe. He was constantly creating new forms, bringing them to perfection in order to build new, more complex structures and concepts on their basis. As He did before, He does so now and will continue to do so uninterrupted. At the same time, however, since the creation of the first people, there has been a parallel active work on our part. According to the Bible, the Creator, after calling human life, "rested", that is, as if he limited His active participation in the creation of the universe. Everything was initially prepared for the next phase - human activity. The first people were told about the need to rule the Earth. Today, after many years, we observe around us the development of civilization carried out only by man himself. This is our legacy, it is our "daily bread" inherited from the Creator. We will do this indefinitely, imitating and developing his work.
Most followers of monotheistic religions say that God is everywhere, not explaining how it is possible. They consider this to be non-explanatory. In my texts I explained the presence of the Creator by the fact of the creation of the universe from the Energy of the First Cause and by the fact of the penetration of the entire universe by the principles, laws, goodness and emotionality that come from the Creator. This creates God's omnipresence, and also creates the possibility of the ubiquity of the mature spiritual person. Unfortunately, these religions, although they define man as a child of God, treat him as a speck lost in the vastness of space on the tiny planet Earth. Does that make sense?
Of course, our ubiquity in the universe is different in nature to the analogous ubiquity in the case of Original Being. I describe it as "acquired" ubiquity.
The Lord of universe cannot exist hidden in the recesses of the cosmos, although his natural person must mature in some place. As an eternally existing individual, man cannot be limited in his life to a small piece of the universe. In the form of a spiritual person he should move freely and freely throughout the universe. In physical form, it does it on a small scale and in a technically limited way. So if he wants to do it on a huge scale, he must do it only as an immaterial being. A spiritual person of a human being could, with the support of the Creator, “establish bodily physicality” at any time and place in the universe. This would be the proper ubiquity of man, as is the case with God. Such a statement sounds unbelievable in the current state of science and technology, but it logically follows from the concept of the Creator and His purpose of creation.
Man should, like the Original Being, be everywhere. And so it will be in a perfect world. If humanity is to dream about something, then this dream should be in the first place among all dreams. In addition, the fulfillment of this dream is not as unbelievable as it seems. It will be fulfilled after restoring our world to its original state, originally prepared by its Creator.
