How The Concept Of The Whole Helps Us Prove The Existence Of God

In my earlier post1 I have stated that science has not acted wisely by showing how it is possible to be spaceless and timeless. If nothing is spaceless and timeless in the universe, then it is not at all understandable as to why science will have to show this. One can even think that science has given us a false picture of reality here, because it has provided an explanation for something that does not even exist in nature. In such a case the reliability of science itself will be put in question.

Perhaps not being able to face such harsh criticism from my side, one person was ultimately compelled to admit that light is spaceless and timeless. Yes, if at least one entity is spaceless and timeless in the universe, then it is quite logical as to why science would show how it is possible to be spaceless and timeless, because it is the job of science to provide explanation for all the events, phenomena or effects in nature.

If one admits that at least one entity is spaceless and timeless in the universe, then it becomes quite easy for us to provide an evidence for the existence of God. This is with the help of our concept of The Whole.

Now it can be shown that the two properties of spacelessness and timelessness that light is having are actually the default properties of The Whole. What I mean to say by the phrase ‘the default properties of The Whole’ is this: The Whole will be having these two properties by virtue of it being The Whole. That means it will be having these two properties simply because it is The Whole and not due to any other reason lying outside of it.  Now what is The Whole? Let me first give one example. We know that there is the universe. Now we can define the universe in such a way that it will become The Whole. For the universe to be The Whole its definition will be something like this: universe is that which contains within itself everything that exists. As per this definition nothing can ever exist outside the universe, because whatever will exist will exist within the universe; we have defined the universe in that way only. As in such a case nothing can ever exist outside the universe, so there will be no space and no time outside it. Thus it will always be spaceless and timeless and it will be so simply by default, because its very definition entails that there can never be anything outside it. As an example, a bachelor is unmarried by default, because we define the word “bachelor” as that man who is not and has never been married.

Now we are in a position to leave the universe as it is and proceed to defining The Whole. The Whole is that which contains within itself everything that is there and it will also be spaceless and timeless by default, as I have already explained above. A married bachelor is self-contradictory, because a man who is married can never be called a bachelor. Of course a bachelor can marry, but after marriage he will no longer remain a bachelor. Thus a married bachelor will always remain self-contradictory. Similarly The Whole that is not spaceless and timeless is also self-contradictory. Now if one has understood as to why The Whole is spaceless and timeless by default, then she will also understand as to why light cannot be spaceless and timeless by default. This is because light is not The Whole; it does not contain within itself everything that is there. If nonetheless we find that light possesses these two properties, then the only conclusion that can be drawn from this is that it must have received them from some other source lying outside of it. If this source be something other than The Whole, then there will be an infinite regress. In order to stop this infinite regress we will have to ultimately posit the existence of The Whole. That means the fact that light possesses some of the properties of The Whole in spite of the fact that it is not The Whole shows that The Whole exists.

Here one may argue that this shows The Whole exists. Does it show that God exists? Yes, it shows. This is because God is The Whole. We have already explained here2 as to why God is The Whole.
