20200105 Logos

.

INTRODUCTION

Today at the Catholic Mass the John Gospel  (1:1 in English1:1-18 in Italian) is read. This text had a lot of influence on my thinking. What did John mean with the first verse “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God”.

John led me with time to write my illuministic Genesis where Jesus is with God planning the Creation that begun with Big Bang.

The text

John 1:1 says: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things  were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made.”

John wrote in Greek so I advice to look at the Greek translation in biblehub.com/interlinear

Johns  Logos has been translated to Word in English,  Verbo in Italian, Verbum in Latin, Livets ord in Swedish

What did John mean with “Logos” I will dedicate time to share my research on “Logos”

The message

Most clerkmen I know about, say  that John is referring to Jesus, the Galilean Hebrew. But how do they interpret the sentence “was in the beginning with God”?

I never got an explication about this sentence, so I came myself to my own answer, that may of course, be wrong.

For me, Jesus soul was in the begining like an angel, planned to get down to Earth when it was the time for this.

Logos

In wiki I read that Logos (GreekΛόγοςlit. ”Word”, “Discourse”, or “Reason”)[1] is a name or title of Jesus Christ. That is of course acceptable and understandable but I still can not understand “was in the beginning with God”.

For me this image illustrate the word (Logos) at the beginning.

These are some of the rules that govern our Universe.

I have hard time to understand this math language, despite being a retired math teacher. Of course God could not have told this to Moses about 6000 years ago when the best math knowledge was Egyptian fractions and numbers without 0 (zero). So God gave Moses a simplified version in Hebrew today known as Genesis

Johns use of logos

I found a very good theological and philosophical discussion about Logos in www.bible-researcher.com. I share here some of the parts, I regard as most interesting.

Marvin Vincent suggests that the use of the word Logos by John “should be seen in the context of theological discourse in the milieu of Hellenistic Judaism (especially after Philo)”.

He further say that
“John used the term Logos with an intent to facilitate the passage from the current theories of his time (ed. Philo etc) to the pure gospel which he proclaimed.”

As Frederic Godet writes: “The word logos, in John, signifies, as in the whole Biblical text, word. In Philo, it signifies, as in the philosophical language of the Greeks, reason.” (Source: www.bible-researcher.com )

The author of www.bible-researcher.com/logos.html says however “that the contemporary Hellenistic understanding of logos in theological contexts (esp. in Philo) should not be discounted by those who wish to understand John’s meaning.”.

I tend to agree with this statement.

Like I will do, read more about logos in www.bible-researcher.com

.

conclusion

I agree with the author in bible-researcher who says

“The Hellenistic understanding
of Johns logos in theological contexts
should not be discounted”.

And who knows who spoked to John when he wrote his enygmatic Gospel.

Without any doubt, Johns prologue contains far deeper knowledge than any clerksmen let it look like. 

I have  not finished reading the valuable article above and I need more time to think about it.  

But for now, I feel that  my illuministic hypothesis as I shared in my previous 20180115 page and in  Illuministic Genesis , is still reasonable despite being heretic for fanatic Jews and Christians. 

 

Loop Quantum Gravity

Quantum physics has been in my attention for some time now. The reason for it you find in my article about the Quantum God

I have dedicated my professional life to math and its language as a math teacher. But that was for K9 students. I find myself stuck with the math language  Einstein dealt with like the math in the two equations below. I must attend a course explaining this kind of advanced math language.

When I got the news from Fermilab I prenumerate on, about “Loop Quantum Gravity –  how to merge quantum mechanic and gravity” a new field of study, it was impossible for me not to start looking at this video.  

This video resurrected  a old plan I had.  Quantum mechanics math is far more difficult than the math in the relativity equations. I struggled many years ago with the Schroedinger equation, the math I did not understand but understood the electron state orbital consequences. this equation is important to understand to be able to dig into quantum mechanic math.

The best explanation of the Schroedinger equation  I have found is this video:

To understand quantum mechanics better I have to follow leonard Susskind in the video below about imaginary/ complex numbers, complex coniugates and how these are used to describe abstract quantum vectors:

Chaos and order

Entropy

i studied thermodynamics many years ago and came to learn about entropy that describes the state of a system, the state of disorder.  To make an example, a egg has low entropy (low disorder) If you scramble it, the entropy (disorder) raises.  As you know you can not unscramble a egg. Similarly, if you put a piece of ice in a cup of warm juice, the peace of ice (with low entropy) will melt (get higher entropy) . it is unlikely you can reverse that system to get the piece of ice back in your warm juice.

I associate a system with high entropy with disorder, chaos. while a system with low entropy is a form of order. Entropy could be defined as a description of the degree of disorder.

Richard Feynman a American theoretical physicist who died 1988 explained entropy long time ago in this nice youtube:

Mathematician have discovered the strict mathematical constants and equations ( the Mandelbrot set z_(n+1)=z_n^2+C  ) lying behind that apparent chaos in images like this one:

 

Chaos and order are not the same word. But chaos is normally a system of high entropy. I like to visualize high entropy with chaos even if that is not always correct. E.g. a wood may seem chaotic in our point of view but has really a high state of order.

.

Our Biosphere

In our Biosphere everything get higher entropy that is, build up  chaos with time. All living creatures disrupt with time and finally die. This because the ordered DNA get disrupted  during the many replications.

Nature is so well constructed that a seed grows up to  a ordered system, a beautiful plant. But that happens only thanks to the sun that nourishes the plant with photons so it can build up its ordered structure according to the inherited program (DNA)  

Not to forget that the low degree of disorder in ice is created in lack of heat. So water and gases behaves in a different way.

Human beings like animals build aslo up a ordered system ( = their body with a  lower entropy) by eating plants, that is “consuming” the  order  in  the plants. We could say that animals build up and maintain  order (lower entropy) with the help of the plants lower entropy state (being cut downs and eaten)

.

disorder in our homes and cleaning up

Children tend to raise disorder in their living space. It is a sideeffect , we adults (parents most of all) have to live with  Their creating disorder  leads to a raise of intellectual order in their brain, that is learning. Cleaning up the room is the same as lower the entropy (disorder) of it.

other examples of entropy and how to use it in engines.

.

A theological view of the thermodynamics of entropy.

God/Allah has created a system (our Universe)  that is so well programmed that it, out of a extremely high disorder, by itself builds up order, the order of which we can use for our own survival.

Before  Salat it (Muslim prayer) is important to clean yourself and the prayer room. That is a form of showing thankfullness to our Creator that gave us life (=order.) God loves life and order. Shaytan (Iblis) on the contrary does not like order (disorder=death, suffering). Where Iblis has taken over, you see very high disorder, destruction and death. 

I invite you to Look at and meditate over  this video. Compare the order good humans created with the help of God, before the war and the disorder after the war.

It is very important to remember that we can not say, its the devils fault.  We were given a brain with a intelligent reasoning frontal lobe, so we  can normally choose whose what whispering we want to listen to. The whispering of the devil or the whispering of God.  We have also  learned to distuinguish between evil and good. So no excuses for our bad behaviour.
