Round Heaven, Square Earth: Part 2

(Continued from Round Heaven, Square Earth)

What comes first, the chicken or the egg?

I remember this question back in grade school.  My first knee jerk reaction was, “Are you stupid?  It’s gotta be the egg.  Everyone knows that chickens come from eggs–it’s not as if they give birth to live chickens.”

Of course, I’m reminded then, by those older and wiser, that the egg came out of a chicken, and then the question is posed to me once again, upon which point, I become silent and sullen, vowing to myself that one day, when I’m older and wiser, I’ll show them!  That’s right.  I’ll show them I’m not such an idiot!

Well, I’m much older, but alas…not any wiser.  Even after having thought about this question for many decades of my life, I still come back to the same conclusion: the egg came first.

Of course, I can’t just insist that this is my truth without at least giving a decent set of proofs that justify my insistence.  I am not going to be dogmatic about it, nor am I going to go purely by faith and stubborn obstinacy, desperately willing something into being without at least exploring why I feel this way.

The beginning is a great start to everything, so that’s a good place to start, but where would the beginning be located?  Lucky for me, someone else already dug through the mind numbing research and found the start of the gnarled skein of ancient wisdom.  Actually, this shows up in many books and scriptures around the world, but let’s go with the easiest one to find–John’s writings.  (For what it’s worth, I have no idea what John’s last name is.  I only know him as John, so that’s how I’m going to credit him as.)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ~ John 1:1

Now, there is a physicist named Nassim Haramein, who said that the Bible mistranslated the word ‘God‘.  He pointed out that it should be YHWH, as translated from ancient Greek, into Hebrew script.  However, YHWH actually has another meaning.

Yahweh, the God of the Israelites, his name being revealed to Moses as four Hebrew consonants (YHWH), called the Tetragrammaton. ~ Encyclopedia Britannica

Therefore, the verse above from John should have read:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Tetragrammaton, and the Word was Tetragrammaton. 

My Word!  Or should I say, My Tetragrammaton!

(anyhoo…)

This Tetragrammaton existed all by itself as a little dot.

The dot was just hanging out on its little lonesome.  It got bored and it got lonely, so it decided to encompass itself with a sphere to create some kind of volume around itself so that it could explore its surroundings.

And there you have it.

Heaven is a circle.

But if that was all that Tetragrammaton (I’m gonna call it Tetra for short) could do, it wouldn’t be that great of a God, now would it?  Notice, I use a capital ‘G’ to denote Tetra’s Godhood.  That’s quite magnanimous of me since even my favorite hot and sexy Ningishzida only ever gets a small ‘g’ whenever I denote him as a god.

On what is affectionately known as The First Day, Tetra, the Dot God, moved as far to the edge of the single sphere that it could reach, and then created another sphere.

Now it has the space of two spheres to explore.  Woo Hoo!  This is what is known to us humans as the Vesica Piscis, aka Womb Wormhole…(Eeeek!  why does this name give me the creeps?)

When Tetra got bored with exploring those two spheres, it went all the way to the edge of those two spheres and created another sphere, for a grand bang total of three spheres.  Unbeknownst to Tetra, the three-sphere shape is quite famous and known to us humans as the Solar Trinity.  This is where we get the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost from.  (I’m scared of ghosts, so let’s move on from here).

Tetra continued to do that four more times until, at the completion of day Six, it got a flower-looking shape with which to explore.

And then it was written, that it got tired and rested on the seventh day.  However, nothing could be further from the truth!  On the Seventh day, something miraculous occurred, and Tetra was too busy exploring and creating to be resting.

You see, with the seven spheres, connected in this manner, Tetra had all the necessary geometry to begin planting life!  That’s why the pattern on the sixth day is called the Seed of Life.  Tetra was too busy drilling down into the infinite depths of its fractals, planting its seeds everywhere, to check in and tell us not to worry.  After all, as a full-fledge GOD, why does Tetra need to rest?  That would denote that Tetra had used up all its energies on six measly days of work, and what kind of a weakling God is that?

Now, from what I can see, Tetra’s world is infinitely small, but all this infinite smallness is contained within the first Circle that Tetra, the Dot God created.  The first sphere had a finite edge, and the other corresponding spheres were connected to it, creating a bubble of what is definitely finite, meaning you can’t get any bigger than Tetra’s original sphere grouping (called the Flower of Life, and I’ll get to that in a bit).

Looking beyond Tetra’s sphere would mean you’d have to accept that Tetra is just one of many other Gods (all capital Gs), each with its own existential existences, interacting with each other at the subatomic level, and making up the particles that constitute the ever larger GGODDSS existences.

OK, this is starting to blow my mind, so let’s stick with the one God that we know and love, Tetra.

Drilling down from that point, however, is another story.  As fractals go, it is so infinite that we could build a HUGE Hadron Collider, one SO BIG that it can circle Saturn and we would never find the smallest particle, because whatever particle we find would still be just another fractal layer of Tetra, the Dot God.  This is also why, as tiny as we are, we have within us and around us, the complete pattern of Tetra.  That’s how fractals work–but that’s for another day.

But I digress.  We haven’t gotten to that part of the story yet.  We just barely talked about Heaven, denoted as a circle (or sphere, however you choose to see it).  Now I have to talk about the square Earth.
