On the Importance of Mathematics

Ultimately, god must be defined as
that which creates,
and forever maintains, Reality

Thus, is the anthropic unification of
Science, Theology, and Philosophy.

For those that seek this god,
it would be better
to look toward pure mathematics
than Scripture.

The transcendency of Reality
was, is, and will always be
everywhere evident.

Infinity, within and without,
a singular duality;
manifests as speed with dimensional
and directional illusions
of space-time; thus, Light,
which evolves to a gravitational effect.

All that which precedes; and
Gravity’s universal interaction,
Confluent Congruence; and,
that which appears as attraction
. . . Relative, Hierarchic Compression,
can best be described with
logic, simple geometry and
mathematical expressions.

If symbols must be worshiped,
let the icons be such as:
pi, Phi, e, i; or, 1, 0 . . . and especially,
the lemniscate; also, sine curves,
spirals, helices, catenaries, primes,
and ellipsoids would be just fine.

Only concepts
with an enigmatic transcendence
can indicate that which is
neither additive nor divisible,
a single force, this singularity,
the very image and perception
that is god, creator . . . Oneness.

ephemeral as it may be;
perceptive, sentient life
has achieved,
within its Realm of Reality,
an evolution that is
of the highest known form.

Yet, as distant therefrom,
as can possibly be,
in its simplicity,
is the greatest complexity;
the singular Realm . . . UnReality;
god’s domain . . .without Design.

What fools . . .
all those that think otherwise.
What danger . . .
from those that act otherwise.
