Okay, I have your attention. Admittedly I’ve taken on quite a task, proving god exists, but I think I’ve found a mathematical way to do it. Keep in mind I have no intent to prove god exists. I couldn’t be less interested in the question.
But in my own weird way, I’ve stumbled on a mathematical proof that in one light proves the existence of god from a certain perspective.
I’ve been working a lot with infinity, and consequently nothing. The basis of my work is I’m trying to understand how Infinity interacts with reality. You can view some of my work here and here. In Summation, I’m working on the hypothesis that our universe is not infinite. Instead, it exists in an infinite dimension I’m calling the binary universe.
The binary universe consists of at least three infinite dimensions. My hypothesis is that it is the medium in which our universe exists, in fact, it is the medium in which an infinite number of universes exist. Note this is not the same as parallel universes. I mean to say that in any given direction there is another universe separate from ours separated by an infinite amount of distance. That is of course if you define the universe as what was created by the “big bang.” Or whatever you might imagine created the universe.
Infinite, that’s a word I say and write a lot. I’ve recently changed my thinking about what infinity is I’ve been trying to connect the mathematical concept of infinity with the behavior of the universe. It’s been bothering me you see, how can the universe be infinite if it’s growing? How can the universe be described as having an infinite amount energy a moment before the big bang then exist in a state that is not infinite the next? Where did the infinity go? If the universe expanded to infinity when did it cross the threshold?
Maybe these answers are already out there but most of the avenues to find them are blocked to me. If by nothing else my refusal to pursue them. So I’m left to ponder these things for myself.
Infinity is not a number. It is a set containing every possible number. If your universe is one-dimensional infinity is a dot, if it’s two dimensional it’s a line, and so on. If you have more that one instance of a number infinity contains all of them. Infinity also contains all the numbers that are not there. It’s a little difficult to get your mind around but bear with me.
Just as darkness is the absence of light, noting is the absence of existence, and just as darkness can inherit some of the properties of light, so to can nothing inherent some of the properties of existence. Consider a light cast upon a wall. Now imagine a person standing in front of that light to cast a shadow on that wall. Darkness has no shape no size, but because it can only exist where the light is not it inherits its shape from the person who cast it. Now imagine more people come in into the room. Each casting their own shadow. It’s the same darkness even separated by light. Its only changed in size because there are more things blocking the light, but it’s essentially the same. Now count the shadows.
Suddenly we can give a value to the darkness. A property that logically the darkness should not have. If we extend this outwards and make the wall as big as the planet and include every person on earth the darkness for just one light can number in the billions.
The same is true for existence for every instance of existence, there is an infinite number of places where that thing that is existing is not. Because we can count the instances of existence we can infer a value to the instances of non-existence.
This leads me to the Reson I call the infinite universe the binary universe because there are only two things in the universe that matter. Existence (1) and Nothing (0)
So where does god come in? Well, that’s hard to say? Mostly because we lack a universal definition of what god is. Mostly because god is a concept, and concepts are defined by the mind of the person who is perceiving them.
But let’s not let the fact that something is undefinable slow us down. The simple ambiguity of description is not an impediment for an adventurous mind! You may define god however you want. There are only two possibility’s you will either define god in such a way that it completely removes god from the mathematical system or your definition will leave just enough room to guarantee god’s existence.
Here is how I go about it. The crazy man that I am. In most creation myths god is defined as the creator of the universe. So let’s set that as the bar. A being of such technological and scientific sophistication that they can create a universe. I don’t know if this is possible, but considering we are here, I’m going out on a limb to say that it is. I also imagine if they have that kind of sophistication that they would almost assuredly be godlike in other aspects.
The biggest obstacle to most godlike things is energy. If you can create a universe you’ve probably got that solved for the most part, and that makes so many things available to you at your god table.
You may, of course, argue this description, but keep in mind you are merely arguing the description and not the numbers for the existence of these godlike beings.
One of the many crazy aspects of infinity I’ve discovered is that is can exist between any two points is a two-dimensional universe and any six points in a three-dimensional universe. Since there is no standard distance between points this means that two instances of infinity can be wildly different in their volume and still be mathematically equal, and as we saw in the example of the shadows there is no reason for infinity to be continuously connected. This means there could be an infinite amount of something, just not in the same place.
This leads me to the concept of infinitesimal pairs. This is an exciting set of numbers. Given that two things in the universe can both be infinite and not be equal creates a unique and interesting relationship.
Simply put. If ∞(a+b) so that a>b The resulting infinity will be 99.999r % a, and 0.000r % b. So let’s say a=2 and b=1 if we mutiply them by difrent nubers we see that two will asways be twice as big as one.
2 * 1 = 2————-1 * 1 = 1
2 * 2 = 4 ————1 * 2 = 2
2 * 10 = 20———1 * 10 =10
But the mathmatical distance between them gets wider.
2 * 1 = 2————-1 * 1 = 1 difrence 1
2 * 2 = 4 ————1 * 2 = 2 difrence 2
2 * 10 = 20———1 * 10 =10 difrence 10
The greatest distance between two numbers is a infitesimal relationship. Where one is infinite and the other is infintesamaly smaler.
This works with any two numbers so long as one is bigger than the other.
Since if I’m right and infinity’s don’t have to be equal in volume only in content this makes things very simple for us. There is more nothing in the binary universe than existence. Making the binary universe 99.999r% nothing and 0.000r% existence.
Of that 0.000r% existence, there is 99.999r% entropy and 0.000r% energy.
That energy (which is still infinite) is responsible for the creation of universes. Entropy being the force that causes them to slowly die.
In a small percentage of those universes, civilizations rise up to become godlike and because when you become godlike the only thing left to do is watch home movies, and since it’s likely you can’t go back in time, you create a new universe to study. Meaning that at least some of the universes in existence are created.
This makes the binary universe 99.999r%, not god, and 0.000r% god.
I don’t care how many dice you throw in an infinite system at least sometimes they will all come up all sixes. So long as your standard for god is possible it is probable.
This is, of course, coming from an atheist. 🙂
