Just as there is an infinite largeness there is also an infinite minuteness. Infinite minuteness is much less known and thought about, but I believe it is true because it is consistent with the principle of correspondence and equilibrium in the divine order of the universe. The source of life, the natural sun (and the spiritual sun) are in equilibrium; and it is divine principle that all that is created reflects the form of that which created it, so for anything to exist it must be in equilibrium. The infinite minuteness of matter is incomprehensible to the mind if thought of in a linear way which the human mind is trained to do by the material world. That there is an Infinite minuteness can be understood in this way: For anything to exist it must be in a state of equilibrium because this is what gives if form. For anything to have form it must be composed of something; for instance, an atom is composed of protons orbiting around the neutron, and in turn these protons and neutrons are formed of quarks. For quarks to exist they must be formed of something, which science is still pursuing. This process goes on and on without end. In the spiritual world there is one spiritual sun in which God is in the midst, and this is the source that created all things that exist both physical and spiritual.
As is well known the natural sun is in a state equilibrium between the force of gravity pushing-in and creating more and more heat and pressure; and the force of nuclear fusion exploding out. These two forces result in a balanced state that gives the sun form. So equilibrium is on a macro and a micro level; anything one can think of is in equilibrium – a hat, a chair, an eco system, the earth, bodies, galaxies, the universe. Also, equilibrium is always dynamic; for instance, protons may leave the orbit, but then the atoms settle into a new form of equilibrium. Weather patterns or new species my be introduced to an eco-system, and it changes into another form. All the math of Einstein and Newton look to equal out to an equilibrium. Macro or micro all these things are in flux, some in equilibrium for eons, some for micro-seconds. I have written about this before in depth but its important to briefly add that God is the ultimate equilibrium. God is the divine-human. In Him is the holy marriage, or union, between His divine essence (or soul) and His divine body. (This can be read about in the articles in this blog on the Glorification.) Also the whole structure of the universe is based on the equilibrium between the forces of good and evil by which God provides freedom to humanity. (I have also written about this in articles on equilibrium and freedom).
Now, here is the amazing thing: I purpose that the principles of infinite largeness and minuteness become understandable by the discovery that the universe is expanding at the speed of light. As we discussed everything is dynamic, and infinity can also be defined in a dynamic way. Infinite largeness includes that the universe is expanding at the speed of light; so infinity is not static but ever-increasing. Infinite largeness is infinite space with infinity things in it, and it is increasing eternally. The same principle, that is that the universe is expanding at the speed of light, also dynamically explains infinite minuteness. By this principle we can conceptualize that the universe is continually making more ‘room’ for the minute parts that compose the smaller parts of the last form. This also means the number of things in the universe are increasing eternally. So infinite smallness is particles and energy forms that are in equilibrium and that become ever smaller in an ever expanding space. It appears then, in a wonderful circle of truth, the principles of infinite largeness and smallness meet in dynamic union by the principle that the universe is expanding at the speed of light!
And it must be added that science has discovered that the universe is expanding not from one point, but from every point in space. This fact is very important because it supports both the physical meaning of equilibrium and the spiritual meaning of sovereignty. Equilibrium is the physical expression of sovereignty; for that which is in equilibrium is self contained, or has a defined identity, while at the same time is connected to everything, and serving a purpose in the universe. Scientist say that each point in the universe is expanding even in the objects around us, say like a basketball, but locally it is on such a small scale that it cannot be seen or detected. I visualize this expansion at every point as a mushrooming-out like the cells of a fungus or virus that expand. It seems to me the expansion from every point and from all the points next to each has a cumulative effect over millions and billions of points and over billions of lightyears of space to the end result that the universe is expanding at the speed of light.
The fact that the universe is expanding at every point is consistent with our definition of infinite smallness, in that the smallest form at any given point would be expanding at an incrementally small amount eternally.
The big difference in what I am saying and the way many scientist theories on this is that they say there is an end to the universe, that it will at some point die by stopping to expand and all the suns will run out of fuel, or, it will compress back into a single point again like it was before the big bang. I don’t think anything like this is correct. I base my reasoning for this view on the universal principle that that there is correspondence between everything in the natural world and the spiritual world. Most scientist of course don’t consider the spiritual world and don’t use or understand this as a factor. It is also true, however, that there are some scientists who believe in God and the spiritual world and may consider this in the pursuit of truth. (Einstein is quoted as saying: “Science without religion is Lame, religion without science is blind”.) So I need to address two points: One, that the universe will never end; and two, that the natural universe will expand eternally. Besides the above presentation, the most valid way to do this is, as I said above is to show how these two points are true in the spiritual world. To be perfectly clear what is true of the spiritual world has a correspondent in every particular in the natural world. In the next article on this subject I will attempt to show how the above ideas are consistent with the spiritual principles of the universe.
