Living AT the Library (literally)!

Joan Winifred knowledge language literacy science & spirituality universe

“Man’s search for meaning is the primary motivation in his life,” said Viktor Frankl

School lets out soon…so begins our Summer (schooling) at the Library 5 days a week…(give or take a few). We are at the library (learning regularly throughout the year (literally & otherwise)). However, when so-called “regular” aka “public” school finishes for the year…we’re there (at our local library) supporting various programs, etc.

Speaking of libraries…our “cells are living libraries.” Did You realize? “The information in a bacterial cell would fill a 1,000-page book.” (Have You read a 1,000 page book lately?!)…(Uh-huh!)

How do cells use information? Think of DNA as a collection of recipes, each one involving step-by-step processes, with each step carefully scripted in precise terms. But instead of the end result being a cake or a cookie, it might be a cabbage or a cow. In living cells, of course, the processes are fully automated, adding yet another layer of complexity and sophistication.

Genetic information is stored until it is needed, perhaps to replace worn out or diseased cells with healthy new ones or to pass on traits to offspring. […]Consider one of the smallest organisms, bacteria. German scientist Bernd-Olaf Küppers stated: “Carried over to the realm of human language, the molecular text describing the construction of a bacterial cell would be about the size of a thousand-page book.” For good reason, chemistry professor David Deamer wrote: “One is struck by the complexity of even the simplest form of life.” How does the genome of a human compare? “[It] would fill a library of several thousand volumes,” says Küppers. (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015–my highlights)

Speaking MGL…

To describe the writing in DNA as “molecular-genetic language” is more than “mere metaphor,” says Küppers. “Like human language,” he points out, “the molecular-genetic language also possesses a syntactic dimension.” Put simply, DNA has a “grammar,” or set of rules, that strictly regulates how its instructions are composed and carried out. (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015–my highlights)

Intelligence is out there, eh?..(and grammar, too?)..of course, joanie.

People attribute information to intelligence, whether that information is in the form of symbols on clay or signals from space. They do not need to see the information being created to draw that conclusion. Yet, when the most sophisticated code known to man—the chemical code of life—was discovered, many shoved that logic aside, attributing DNA to mindless processes. Is that reasonable? Is it consistent? Is it scientific? A number of respected scientists say no.

Professor Yan-Der Hsuuw is the director of embryo research at Taiwan’s National Pingtung University of Science and Technology. He too once believed in evolution—until his research led him to conclude otherwise. Regarding cell division and specialization, he said: “The right cells must be produced in the right order and at the right places. First they assemble into tissues that will in turn assemble themselves into organs and limbs. What engineer can even dream of writing instructions for such a process? Yet the instructions for embryo development are superbly written in DNA. When I consider the beauty of it all, I’m convinced that life was designed by God.” (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015–my highlights)

There are theories…then there are NOT theories:

What qualifies a theory as a scientific theory? According to the Encyclopedia of Scientific Principles, Laws, and Theories, a scientific theory, such as Albert Einstein’s theory of gravity, must

  1. Be observable
  2. Be reproducible by controlled experiments
  3. Make accurate predictions

In that light, where does evolution stand?  Its operation cannot be observed. It cannot be reproduced. And it cannot make accurate predictions. Can evolution even be considered a scientific hypothesis? The same encyclopedia defines a hypothesis as “a more tentative observation of facts [than a theory],” yet lends itself “to deductions that can be experimentally tested.” (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015–my highlights)

As a person preferring poetry (and alliteration;)…(Is happy living, happy loving reading?)

“Your eyes even saw me as an embryo; all its parts were written in your book.” (Psalm (song) 139:16)

Of course, David  was using poetic language (i.e. DNA). Nevertheless, in principle, he was right on the mark, which is typical of the Bible writers. None were even slightly influenced by the fanciful folklore or mythology of other ancient peoples. (excerpted: Your Cells Living Libraries Awake! August 2015)

Makes me ask: Evolutionists…are they slightly influenced by the fanciful?!

(DNA–a space oddity?/God’s (superlatively intelligent) “poetic” living language!)

Looks like we all live at the library, huh? 🙂

Knowledge vs. Wisdom

compassion Joan Winifred knowledge universe wisdom

What is Your working understanding of knowledge…wisdom?

There are many so-called intellectuals out there…in global societies…those regarded as experts/very knowledgeable/highly educated/highly trained/geniuses in their given fields of expertise...what are they actually accomplishing with all this so-called knowledge? What are their works: compassionate?…(are they wise guys? oh yes, some of them are indeed gals.)

this verse puts knowledge in (reality) check: (my highlights)

“Wisdom is proved righteous by its works.” (Matthew 11:19)

“Wisdom brings knowledge, discernment, and understanding together and puts them to work.

(it’s not merely theoretical–it’s practical/workable.) Reminds me of this scripture…when some of us start spouting “theories” on everything:

Those who are wise treasure up knowledge, But the mouth of the fool invites ruin.”

…(ouch! i talk too much, eh?;)

Check it out: “What is Divine Wisdom?”

Computers can store enormous amounts of knowledge, but it is hard to imagine anyone calling such machines wise. Nonetheless, knowledge and wisdom are related. (Proverbs 10:14) For instance, if you needed wise counsel on treating a serious health problem, would you consult someone with little or no knowledge of medicine? Hardly! So accurate knowledge is essential to true wisdom.

Yahweh/Jehovah has more than knowledge. He also sees how facts interrelate and discerns the overall picture that is created by myriad details. He evaluates and judges, distinguishing between good and bad, important and trivial. Moreover, he looks beyond the surface and peers right into the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7) Thus, Jehovah has understanding and discernment, qualities that are superior to knowledge. But wisdom is of a still higher order.

The bible shows/says of Yahweh/Jehovah…that he is capable of:  “Drawing upon his breadth of knowledge and his depth of understanding, Jehovah always makes the best decisions possible, carrying them out by means of the best course of action conceivable. That is true wisdom!” ~excerpt: Draw Close to God: O the Depths of God’s Wisdom.

rejects…& relevancy…usually, that’s why someone/person or something/book  (or theory) is rejected…lack of relevancy.

Rejects & Relevancy: the two find themselves hand in hand. And WHY?..why is that joanie (glad you asked joanie;)…timelessness!
 
…unfortunately, not all of us/not everything is timeless and tailor-made: a classic. (aka not a fad/trend/whim of thinking/doing…that goes out of style as quickly as it comes on the scene/mind) …Basic elements/essences of people, essences of emotions, clothing, building blocks...fundamental forces/physical laws…are consistently reliable/relevant!…(aka predictable/Sellable).
The Bible centers attention on Yahweh/Jehovah as the fundamental Lawgiver of the universe. Throughout the known visible universe his laws are so stable and reliable that, in areas where scientists have knowledge of these laws, they can calculate the movements of the moon, planets, and other celestial bodies with split-second accuracy. One who goes contrary to the physical laws experiences immediate application of their sanctions. Likewise, the moral laws (joanie talking now: aka ethical/agape/compassion laws of love) of God are irrevocable and cannot be circumvented or violated with impunity. They are as sure of enforcement as are His natural laws, though the punishment may not be as immediately enforced. “God is not one to be mocked. For whatever a man is sowing, this he will also reap.”—Ga 6:7; 1Ti 5:24. ~Insight on Scriptures: Lawgiver
 This sowing & reaping (of compassion & non-compassion) is played out positively/negatively constantly…(and nowadays: big-time in the media on a global-scale for all eyes to see/witness). IF i/we sow accurate knowledge…making the best decisions possible/conceivable…THEN i/we reap benefits of wisdom…the best compassionate course/result(s) in any scenario.
obviously, this quick/short post cannot convey justly this topic of  knowledge vs. wisdom…
what i/we do with any knowledge we have…results “prove”…give witness/evidence…of wisdom or not.
An excerpt read:
“That scientists can actually explore other planets hundreds of millions of miles away shows what can be done when people work together toward a single goal. Such achievements are also a credit to human ingenuity. Of course, space exploration—indeed, science as a whole—is only possible because of the consistent and totally reliable physical laws that govern the universe. These laws did not create themselves but were established by the Grand Architect of the universe, (Yahweh) Jehovah God.” ~excerpt: Mars Up close
Is it “wise” to go against/work against the architecture of the universe or work in harmony/cooperate with…universal laws/compassion laws?!
i’ll end this post with: the words of…
a woman/wife/fragile life: Jane Hawking…”my role was to remind him he was not god.

Breathing-Fragile-Life compassion conscientious-ness control earth Joan Winifred mind food universe
Some of my thoughts…yeah 🙂 (imperfect) thoughts:
man mismanages his own mind; man mismanages his own body; man mismanages his own family; man mismanages his own house; man mismanages his own yard; man mismanages his own neighborhood; man mismanages his own community; man mismanages his own city; man mismanages his own country; man mismanages his own earth?!…man mismanages his own universe?

{Their thoughts are harmful thoughts; Ruin and misery are in their ways. 8 They have not known the way of peace, And there is no justice in their tracks.They make their roadways crooked; No one treading on them will know peace. Isaiah 59:7, 8}

When man-”cruel” can learn to organize/control/manage (“harmful”) mind, thereby becoming man “kind” …damaging and deadly mismanagement will cease.

Mind management skills…a requirement for compassion?

According to his secretary Pyarelal, Mohandas Gandhi, the late spiritual leader of India, observed: “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need but not for every man’s greed.”

One ecologist frankly acknowledged: “In a sense, we don’t have any clue how to manage the planet successfully.”

The situation very much fits the Bible’s assessment: “It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step.”—Jeremiah 10:23.

Bible exhorts us: “Be made new in the force actuating your mind, and . . . put on the new personality…[…].

If we change our mind/view of earth…as a “precious” gift…will we appreciate it and take better care of it?

Read in the paper today…”As Robert Bryce of the Manhattan Institute notes, carbon emissions increased world-wide by about 700 million tons in 2011 alone. China increased its emissions by 3 billion tons from 2006-2012.”

Long time ago, in a place far, far, away…from here -lol…i read an illustration..the gist:

As a homeowner, IF you had awful tenants…who repeatedly for years refused to pay rent and were continuously damaging your property…after repeated pleas for change…wouldn’t you eventually evict these tenants?? (and of course, you would like any good tenets…i.e. take care of your property, etc…good tenants remain, right?)

The bible explains/warns (and for centuries)that God will intervene…on behalf of compassionate man”kind” and our beautiful planet by…evicting awful tenants…who refuse to stop ruining our home/earth!

Check this out: another way of looking at: “Armageddon

Sadly, man has misused God’s beautiful gift to the point of ruination. Yet, the Creator’s purpose has not changed. A man of old said: “God is not a mere man who tells lies, nor a son of man who changes his mind. When he says something, will he not do it?” (Numbers 23:19) In fact, rather than allow the earth to be ruined, the time is rapidly approaching for God to “bring to ruin those ruining the earth.”—Revelation 11:18

“Look! I am making all things new.” (Revelation 21:5) Does this mean that God will replace the earth with a new one? No, for there is really nothing inherently wrong with our planet. Rather, God will do away with those responsible for the planetary crisis, “those ruining the earth,” that is, the present-day human system with its governmental structure. This will be replaced by “a new heaven and a new earth”—a new heavenly government, God’s Kingdom, ruling over a new earthly society.—Revelation 21:1.

If a homeowner wants “good” tenants…who care for his/her property…why wouldn’t God want good caretakers/managers for Earth?

Follow me?…can’t we let agape actuate/manage our minds!:)

Before & Beyond the Universe

God Joan Winifred time universe

On Sunday, I had a brief, but deep conversation with a family friend that… got me thinking!

got me thinking?? about time, God, science, etc.  e=mc2…he made an excellent point that (provided e=mc2 is correct)–“God existing/being beyond time or outside of the space of time.”

So..here’s where my brain takes me to:

Before and beyond and surrounding the “physical universe” is…no time! Sorta like the physical universe being on the inside of time and on the outside of time…God/Divine Life.

Time began aka clock ticking: when creation/the universe began…and the process of regulation/measurement with/by the first luminary… according to:

Genesis 1:1-19

1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.+ 2  Now the earth was formless and desolate,* and there was darkness upon the surface of the watery deep,*+ and God’s active force*+ was moving about over the surface of the waters.+ 3  And God said: “Let there be light.” Then there was light.+ 4  After that God saw that the light was good, and God began to divide the light from the darkness. 5  God called the light Day, but the darkness he called Night.+ And there was evening and there was morning, a first day. 6  Then God said: “Let there be an expanse+ between the waters, and let there be a division between the waters and the waters.”+ 7  Then God went on to make the expanse and divided the waters beneath the expanse from the waters above the expanse.+ And it was so. 8  God called the expanse Heaven.* And there was evening and there was morning, a second day. 9  Then God said: “Let the waters under the heavens be collected together into one place, and let the dry land appear.”+ And it was so. 10  God called the dry land Earth,+ but the collecting of the waters, he called Seas.+ And God saw that it was good.+ 11  Then God said: “Let the earth cause grass to sprout, seed-bearing plants and fruit trees according to their kinds, yielding fruit along with seed on the earth.” And it was so. 12  And the earth began to produce grass, seed-bearing plants+ and trees yielding fruit along with seed, according to their kinds. Then God saw that it was good. 13  And there was evening and there was morning, a third day. 14  Then God said: “Let there be luminaries*+ in the expanse of the heavens to make a division between the day and the night,+ and they will serve as signs for seasons and for days and years.+ 15  They will serve as luminaries in the expanse of the heavens to shine upon the earth.” And it was so. 16  And God went on to make the two great luminaries, the greater luminary for dominating the day+ and the lesser luminary for dominating the night, and also the stars.+ 17  Thus God put them in the expanse of the heavens to shine upon the earth 18  and to dominate by day and by night and to make a division between the light and the darkness.+ Then God saw that it was good. 19  And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
Time was created by God…the creator is not time, not constrained by time like the creation…not in/existing in the same realm.
{Just like this blog will come to life aka be “published” once i use my power to press the “publish” button…this blog post will not be published unless me/the writer/blogger/creator presses/clicks it… my existence/life is before this post/blog entry.}
Logic speaks…i am not “physically” in this blog, my words, a reflection of me, but i don’t “physically” live in this blog…i live in my house in Florida…outside this blog.
“Of course, every house is constructed by someone, but the one who constructed all things is God.” Hebrews 3:4
Immortality = divine life = quality of life not limited by time = no minute, no hour, no day, no year constraints…limitlessness/ endlessness of existence.
After/beyond the “physical universe”…no time.  This makes me think: The physical universe including luminaries/stars,etc. is surrounded by no time. Or what’s outside of the universe or beyond? NO TIME.
