COMPOSITION OF MATTER: What is matter of the cosmos really made of? Merely to say matter is made of matter would be a triviality. To say matter presents as clumps which are comprised of smallest particles of clumps is to invite relativistic measurements of such particles and their interfunctioning. However, such cannot answer what matter-in-itself is really made of. To say matter is made of some aspect which cannot be measured is not to invite the non-measuring of matter with matter, but it is to invite receptivity to intuitions about the non-measurable, spiritual quality of that which abides as the Source of matter. It is to invite conceptualization about whether there may not really exist any "matter-in-itself," but only such "matter-as-is-made-to-appear-to-be-recorded-to-exist-to-such-receptive-spiritual-forms-as-may-happen-to-share-a-common-cone-of-communicable-receptivity."
COMPOSITION OF MATH: If such "matter as is made to appear" does not exist in-itself, then in respect of What does it exist, Which does exist-in-itself? May matter and the Source of matter exist only in respect of an immateriality, such as pure-numbers-in-themselves? Or pure math? Before the Source, it would seem numbers-in-themselves could not meaningfully or manifestly exist. It would seem that even a potential for numbers would not exist, except contemporaneously with at least a potential for the Source. It would seem that such potentiality must always have existed. If so, it would seem that there must have been no first event, as such. It would seem that events must be iterations of that Source which has always, and presently still, exists, at least in potentiality.
RECORDABLE SEQUENTIALITY: It would seem that the interpretive, iterative sequentiality of events, such that each event appears to "cause" the unfolding next, is more a function of renormalizing of perspective. That is, renormalizing of adopted identity, point of view taken, frame of reference, and appreciation of purposefulness. It would seem that sequentiality is more a derivative (or rainbow trick) of renormalization-of-perspective than a matter of actual existentially of any particular event or sequence as a thing-in-itself. That is, a Sourced tendency that spins fractal renormalizations within renormalizations within renormalizations.
MEANINGFULNESS RATIONALIZED OUT OF NOTHINGNESS: Events are renormalized to appear to be interpreted as sequentially necessary and coextensive with Beings that experience rationalize-able meaningfulness. It need not be the case that qualitative Information about events is forever preserved. Nor need it be the case that quantitative Information is preserved, beyond that which is needed to renormalize such experiences as happen to be shared, up to limits of common fuzziness by a cone-occupying group of potential or manifest perspectives of consciousness. The Source can equally as well be interpreted as having first existed, either with a capacity of potentiality of no-things, or with a capacity of manifestiality of some-things (i.e., immeasurable no-things split into measurably spinning iterations of some-things). Thus, relativistically measurable spinnings give manifest, meaningful expression to spins, numbers, math, logic, sequence, empiricism of unfoldingness, and interpretations of measurable "causes and effects."
IMPLICATION OF THE EXISTENTIALITY OF NUMBERS AND MATH: Numbers cannot rationally be said either to precede or to follow the Capacity of the Source to manifest and split out iterations of some-things. However, the meaningful manifestation and interpretation of numbers is associated with the manifestation of that Capacity. If the appearance of matter can be spun out of appreciation of feedback from splitting out iterative spins from otherwise nothingness, then what appreciative meaningfulness can be Bootstrapped out of a shared system of spiritual Belief?
SELF FULFILLING BELIEF IN METAPHORICAL STORY THEMES: Matter itself does not really exist in itself. So it tends to make little quantifiable sense to debate whether flesh of Jesus really exists or existed. However, the Story of Jesus has commonalities with numerous other heroic stories. It would seem that spiritual Truth abides more with stories than in matter or flesh. Studying recurrent themes of stories, as metaphors, may avail a more rationale path towards spiritual truth. It may be that the recurrence of Jesus-like stories is less disproof of Jesus than it is evidence of truth values behind Jesus-like heroic stories of pathos and spiritual meaningfulness. It is the appreciation of pathos, beauty, art, music, harmony, sturm und drang, that is uplifting, not maya-materiality. It is because matter is not the superior reality that beliefs can renormalize, to flesh out self-fulfilling prophecies. If we believe and orient our purposefulness towards Jesus-like heroism, then we may incline more towards a civilization of human freedom and dignity. If we believe and orient our purposefulness towards Elitist Domination (whether it be Talibanic repression, Marxist dictatorship, or Morlochian harvesting of the weak), then we will incline more towards an animal farm of human darkness, despair, and repression. The reality of the creative effect of spiritual belief systems seems to tend beyond the appreciation or intution of those whose brains have been hard conditioned to the how of empiricism, with gross neglect to the why of moralism. They have eyes that are too blinded by the quantitative and the price and the immediately gratifying to see the qualitative and the value and the spiritually purposeful. Yet, they call themselves "Progressives." Go figure.
