Two of the greatest minds of the 20th century learned what they knew from the universe. What does it mean to learn from the universe? It implies that Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein and many other scientists absorbed what they know from observing and analyzing the creation of our Lord God. All the great discoveries and the laws that govern the universe as we know it existed long before humans came to be. If we stop to think about that, then we must take a step back and realize that we are not the ones who create the laws that govern the universe. Instead, we are the ones who discover the laws in existence since the universe came into being. We are still childlike in our knowledge, and there is far more yet to be discovered. We are also still struggling to understand the awe-inspiring creation before us. We are the ones who find the laws, and by knowing the laws that govern the universe, we can then utilize what we learn and make our lives better. If we use what we have learned from the universe properly to benefit humanity, then we harmonize with said universe, which is what we should strive to do.
Nikola Tesla, recognized as one of the greatest scientific minds of our time, experimented to prove that he could transmit electrical power through the air. To this aim, Tesla built an enormous electrical transmitter in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and used a copper ball at the end of a pole a hundred feet or more above a massive coil of copper wire which was his transmitter. The enormous coil of wire was 52 feet in diameter. When he applied power, he was able to fully illuminate lightbulbs some 26 miles away to full brightness. Even though Tesla's experiment proved his thesis, he could never complete his goal to supply free energy to everyone on Earth due to a lack of funds. Nikola Tesla died penniless years later. Nikola Tesla learned all he knew from observations of the natural world. It was not taught to him by human teachers. Tesla is best known for being the inventor of the AC generator; however, he left behind many documents confiscated by the U.S. Government after his death and are still held in classified vaults. It is rumored that said documents were used for military purposes, thus robbing the world of some amazing technology.
Albert Einstein learned similarly. Like Tesla, he also had a great mind and could conceive of things most of us will never conceive of in several lifetimes. Even today, people struggle to understand Einstein’s concepts and equations. Einstein is best known for the equation E equals M times C squared. E, stands for energy, M is mass, and C^2 is for the speed-of-light squared. Einstein arrived at this short equation by working through many complex equations. I once watched a man derive Einstein's famous equation by going through, step-by-step, all the other equations involved in determining this rather simple equation. It took a skilled mathematician to arrive at this most famous equation. Still, the formula itself was derived by observing and analyzing the characteristics of mass and light and how they interact. Einstein's discovery showed that energy is derived from mass traveling at the square of the speed of light. Is all energy derived in this way? It does not seem so; however, where does energy come from? All of the math required to arrive at Einstein's famous equation was not invented by humans; it was discovered by careful analysis and observation of the universe itself and scientific experimentation. Is that not something, that mathematics was learned by observing our Lord God's creation and was not a human invention after all?
Does it not leave you spellbound trying to imagine the universe from the perspective of Einstein or Tesla and how it must have looked to them. We owe our modern society largely to these two men who were taught what they knew from the universe we are all immersed in. All glory to our Lord God.
There is one other great scientist I would like to mention and he was from the 16th century. He was none other than Johannes Kepler, born during the Holy Roman Empire and lived from 1571 until 1630. Kepler contributed to science the three fundamental laws of planetary motion. In fact, his contribution was so precise that we are still using his equations to this very day. This from a man who died 392 years ago. That is a very long time for your work to still be held in such high regard. And, yet, as did Einstein and Tesla, Kepler too was taught his three laws of planetary motion by observing planetary motion. Kepler was aided by studying the works of Nicolaus Copernicus, who theorized that the planets were in circular orbits and all orbits were heliocentric, and the works of Tycho Brahe, a 16th-century Danish astronomer. Kepler's study of Brahe's discoveries led to the first two laws of planetary motion. Johannes Kepler, similar to the astronomers Copernicus and Brahe before him, learned what they knew from observing the motions of the planets. Kepler's observations, analysis, and studies proved that the planets moved in elliptical orbits with the Sun as one of the foci.
Some geneticists study human DNA to discover how genes work, and they learn through observation, analysis, and experimentation. And, this can be applied to all sciences' as well.
Creation is intelligence. How can I say this? Well, can we learn from a universe that has no intelligent design? If the universe were not intelligently designed, it would be chaotic, and life might never have evolved on Earth. The stars and planets might never have formed, and the great galaxies that we see from the Hubble space telescope would probably not look as organized and beautiful as they are. Instead, we might see a field of blobs of stars intermixed within a sea of stars.
It is unmistakable that the universe did not come together by mere chance. The universe is a fantastic creation with a myriad of laws that govern its workings. The universe can also create energy, and it runs like a perpetual motion machine—never seeming to run out of energy after more than 16 billion years of existence. Although we may soon learn the universe is much older than we now believe it to be. The James Webb space telescope may reveal this.
What could we conclude about an intelligence as vast as our universe? It must be alive! Can anything dead have intelligence? I leave that up to you to decide.
I choose to refer to the universe as our Father since, as the Holy Scriptures say, "For in him to live and move and exist. Some of your poets have said, 'We are his offspring.'" This can be found in Acts 17:28. Now, what does this verse tell us? It seems to say that we live within our Lord God and his creation. If our Lord God is creation and the universe and heaven are part of the same creation, then we must live within our Father. Would that not help to explain the intelligence spread throughout the universe and our Lord God's omnipresence? I do believe it would.
Just one more thing that is part of the theme of my blog, that being, scientists are studying our Lord God, yet, most do not realize they are. And scientists, in their own way, worship our Lord God since they are often struck with awe and amazement when discoveries within the universe are made. And they love to delve into the workings of the universe.
Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed this simple writing—Adios, for now, my friends.
Inspired by The Holy Spirit.
