What matters


What
matters is stronger than what does not matter; it seems that we come
from the tough side of the universal tracks. That seems to be so,
according to a team of scientists at the Stanford Linear Accelerator
Center, in Palo Alto, California. They arranged a rumble between
antimatter particles and matter particles, and  some matter was
left standing. So matter is tougher, according to them, than
antimatter: that is why we have the universe; that is why we have life.
So it seems that God favors matter over antimatter; God favors life
over anti-life.  I have made an assumption, some may say, that the
research does not imply. The creation is such a wondrous phenomenon to
contemplate; it stimulates the imagination of all, except those humans
numbed by opiates or ennui. Imagine the effects on one inspired and
animated by poetry.


 

I admit that this does nothing toward
the proof of the existence of deity; it does fill one with the awe and
majesty of the creation. If it, the matter of the universe, is the
result of an accident, a chance occurrence; it is a magnificent one.
That accident would be worthy of reverence. I do know that intelligence
could not produce such a result. I agree with the line of thought from
the Rambam: we can only know what God is not. From that premise, one
may say that God is not intelligent. What caused and operates the
creation is transcendent. The concept intelligence is more aptly used
for more mundane beings. One knows from observations of the produce of
human intellect that the creator is above intelligence. 




One may not know the substance of
transcendence; it is beyond us. One may make the leap of faith and
poetic license to say that God does not like anti-life as much as It
likes life. Moral principles have been based on less.
