The tasks at hand on the fifth and sixth days of Creation were feats of incredulity. The Creator would duplicate the acts of creation, but not more stars, and not more seas and dry lands. The Creator would bring forth another creator in the image and likeness of what was before the first moment of enlightenment and the first day of creation.
Gen 1:20-23 (KJV)
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
On the fifth day the process known by Darwin was initiated. For on that day, the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind . . . every living creature that moveth. This was the period of enlightenment when star dust was transformed into organisms. Even Darwinian evolution agrees that the seas brought forth abundantly. The difference in opinion is whether it was by natural selection or by Cosmic Will. In truth there is no difference, however, in perception it is a matter of life and death. The organisms that were given life during the fifth period of enlightenment were also give death, to keep the stars in balance. A celestial body which could produce life abundantly without the prospect of death could not be conceived. Denial of this enigma causes the living to fail to see that death is essential of life. Nevertheless, the waters brought forth abundantly.
Behind the scenes of Darwin's natural selection is the emotional life force which distinguishes the living from the dead. This emotion produced by the magic life force empowered the survival of many species. They grew to match their environment in a garden of plenty, for the herb, whose seed is in itself, had been conceived before the stars were fixed in the firmament. Thinking about this clearly and deeply, will lead to the conclusion that the seed came from the heavens before the local stars were born! This is incredibly profound. Did Darwin imagine such a causal process? I do not recall that he did. Thus, on this score, Genesis describes a scientific "fact" that evolution ignores, and even represses. Genesis accepts that life is the destiny of the stars, for the cosmos has its seed within itself..
Gen 1:12-13 (KJV)
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13And the evening and the morning were the third day.
In their struggle to defeat Genesis, the evolutionary scientists fail to recognize one fundamental fact of this great work. It clearly has the seed on the earth, before the photosynthesis process was possible. Research is now going on in deep gold mines of South Africa which show clear evidence that the soils two miles down support abundant living organisms that do not require oxygen or sun light. Over the last decade we have video taped complete biological colonies at deep sea smokers which are at the bottom of the oceans, miles below the surface in total darkness. These biological colonies tell us one undeniable fact, life was meant to be. It will endure incredible harshness wherever it must to survive. Its strategies will adjust to meet the needs of its organism, and vice versa, or it will suspend its animation until the conditions are appropriate. After the stars were placed around the firmament of the earth, then the earth was capable of fulfilling the enlightenment of the fifth day which is to be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
Recently, the scientific community got all excited about Martian rocks which appeared to have organisms within them. The response of the scientific community was that these Martian rocks would yield "proof" that life is ubiquitous in the heavens. On the other side, many were motivated to use these rocks from our neighboring planet to show that the Creationists were wrong. The naive scientists failed again to understand the meaning of the third day. On the third day, Genesis says that the cosmos has its own seed within itself. Had they demonstrated life forms in the Martian rock, they would not have defeated Genesis, they would have confirmed Genesis! By acknowledging the pre-solar seed, Genesis explicitly defines our origins to be from ancient stars that blew up billions of years before the sun began to gather together the substance of its New World Order. Genesis has the science of creation in its proper order, without the help of Darwin or Freud.
Freud was to the sixth day of Genesis what Darwin was to the fifth. These supposed rational scientific masters of human evolution developed their own plateaus of self knowledge in a vacuum of mental space. The fact that they accomplished as much as they did is testimony to the staying power of the organisms that survived the journey in the stars. Life and imagination were both brought down from the heavens in suspended states of animation while the cauldron of the earth was a boiling pot brewing up a stew of incredible diversity. Would the last century of World Wars have been different if these two men had stopped to smell the roses? Very possibly, for their sciences caused more destruction of the abundant garden than the works of any two human lives in history. The power which they captured was not the life force of the organism. No, they captured the imagination which controls the life force in the organism. When was that imagination conceived? Again, Genesis is our guide.
Gen 1:24-31 (KJV)
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
On the sixth period of enlightenment the Creator saw fit to pass on to the organisms of the biomass brewing in the cauldron of the planet earth a power so great that it could subdue the life force in any organism on the planet. This power was the imagination. For during this period of enlightenment another form was conceived in the image of God. This new entity would have the power of self enlightenment. The power to dream. With this power the organism could utilize the life force of the body and the substance of the stars to create a world within a world brought together by the five periods of enlightenment that preceded this incredible accomplishment.
If you have not taken the time to recognize this incredible power, go back in your memories and bring forward the fantasies that put you where you are today. We are all like Pinocchio and his father Geppetto. We have, through birth, the structure of human beings. We have enough imagination to get ourselves in enough trouble to become donkeys. The thrill of the encounters with donkeyhood seems to have no end, for our imaginations know no bounds. We are puppets in a land without bondage, because we were brought forth in the image of God.
Like Geppetto, the Creator set the creation loose to see what it would do when the process of Cosmic Creation rested for a while.
Gen 2:1-2 (KJV)
1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
How long has this day of rest been going on. That answer is hidden in the meaning of the enlightenment on the day when the Creator let it be. If the Creator continued to make puppets, what would that have shown. After dividing the cosmic waters with the firmament, creation had surpassed all potential dreams of material accomplishment. The day of letting go is the greatest of all the periods of enlightenment, for that was the example to stop and smell the roses, and see what had been done. As the Creator waited semi-passively in a state of suspended creation, something was beginning to brew in the cauldron on the little speck of dust called earth. One of the creatures began to imagine a likeness between the Creator and itself. This creature began to perform acts of transubstantiation. Stars became maps, and rocks became imitations of the celestial maps. This creature which captured the imagination of the cosmos had begun to create a cosmos of its own. A cosmos derived from imagination within the heavens transformed the heavens upon the earth.
The imaginative creature had decided to create an example of "as it is above, so it is below." This was the age of gods. These creatures saw no evil, they saw only imitation of the vision of creation. Later the visions of these "god kings" would be defiled as hallucinations by children who were barely capable of wiping their own noses. The "god kings" would attempt to suppress this arrogance of youth, but, anarchy knows no bounds. Something was missing in the imagination of youth. It was the period of enlightenment called the day of rest; a day to appreciate what had been done. Youthful ambition does not understand appreciation, it only understands consumptive growth.
We will end this journey along the evolutionary path of creation science to stop and smell the roses and see what has always been said. It is written, not in the implements of the minds of imaginary beings, but in the very works the Creator had performed.
Through a cosmic port hole, the ancients read the stars. The messages were clear to them, for they came to their perceptions with the virtue of children in a garden filled with wondrous things. They consumed the stars like a dry sponge in a pool of water. Can you see the light and dark being separated when the image of the first period of enlightenment is that of a man opening the ways with one foot in the waters, and one foot on the earth? Can you see the waters being divided into an upper and lower region where the firmaments are yet bound by the red dragon of desire? Can you see the herb whose seed is within itself in the hand of a woman resting upon the firmament of the earth? Can you see the ruler strutting in the direction towards a kingdom? Can you see the creature coming up out of the see as an amphibious crustacean to confront the king? Finally, can you see the celestial form which resulted in the words, image of God created he him; male and female created he them? Look closely at the two children walking on the celestial sea shore. Is there any wonder that these two are created in the image? Their heads are bright, and she has an eye sparkling for him. This place which lies between the first enlightenment and the creation of imagination is the "arc of creation" on the firmament of the celestial earth. It tells a story of incredible beauty. It is a love story in a land flowing with milk and honey, where a lady stops to smell the roses and holds a flowery herb up to the highest heavens.
Look down towards the cosmic earth where the sea and the dry land define another arc under which the Creator chose to rest. This place of rest is at the roots of a tree where the two dreamers came to sit like love birds in a nest. This is the mill of the Great Potter, from which was formed the herb yielding tree in the Potter's Field. With such beauty in cosmic perception it is clear that taking time to rest was good for the Creator. The works of the cosmic mill could now be turned over to the god kings and queens who had learned, that creation without imagination is immaterial, and imagination without creation is unfathomable.
How could such a beautiful garden ever be upset? Well, the answer is right before the face. Look at the staff in the potter's hands. This implement was needed to accomplish the Potter's works. The god kings knew of this implement. Hardly a single god king was put to stone in a monument who did not have this implement in hand. Their monuments all echoed the words written by Jeremiah 18:3, I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
These works on the Potter's wheel are too incredible for the feeble imagination of old men to behold. The children see the magic in the garden, but they could not understand. To protect themselves from such great god kings, the children would begin to deny what their eyes beheld. Isaiah 29:16 reflect the fear in the hearts of immature mortals. Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
But, we will not speak of these self righteous dreams which grow on the tree, for after each period of enlightenment the Creator said, it is good. In the first six days the Creator brought forth enlightened consciousness, then a firmament to hold the spirit of reason, then an earth to carry the seed, then a starry sky to inspire the mortals, then a life force within the organism, and then an imagination beyond compare. These six ingredients are all that is necessary to live within the vast expanse of this scientific creation. Reason, medium, earth, fire, water, and air are names given to these ingredients. Using them in conjunction with the whole of creation will assure its garden of abundance will give forth its fruit without sorrow.
If, somehow, the fires of enlightenment should fade in the emotional waters and cause the air of rationalizations to inflate the head and drive the mortal soul to the material earth below, where reasonable consciousness has no medium in which to thrive, then the true miracle of creation will await the one who can let go. There in the bottomless pit, the Creator placed the implement of inspiration, a staff which is like a scepter of flint. With this implement the recovery of lost generations can be implemented by letting go of the past and recreating it again. A fire in the sea is not an impossibility, for the Phoenix sits upon the Ben Ben where this cosmic river ends, ready to lift the soul of any who would venture to try anew. But, a very great price must be paid with the acquisition of the scepter of flint. Innocence must be lost. For the staff is the power of the forefathers who learned the hard way about life in the garden. They are the ones who had lost their way declaring, He made me not? He had no understanding? Although this is the end of a story of creation, it is just the beginning again.
Can't you see the opener of the ways
at the eastern gate in the heavens above?
He stands with one foot in the water
and one foot on the dry land.
Can't you see the firmaments
in the midst of the waters?
One is the firmament of the heavens,
the other is the firmament of the earth;
a galactic plain and an ecliptic plain.
Can't you see the seed upon the earth?
She sparkles in a house of bread.
Can't you see the ruler of the heavens?
This one walks like a king,
with a guiding light on the earth.
This boot were made for walking upon the earth.
Can't you see the creature from the sea?
It rises to face the king,
as it brings emotion up from the face of the deep.
Can't you see that imagination is the key?
Here the heavenly lovers walk the beaches of the world.
Can't you see the herb yielding seed?
It is the manna from heaven, for as it is above, so it is below.
If you can see these great stories in the stars,
then you will be able to create your own heaven on earth.
Long long ago the Opener of the Ways stood
at the eastern gate with the intent to create.
But, there never was a first time, nor will there ever be a last time.
All that can be truely said and understood is,
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."
It is just a story, but what a creation it is!
