There Must Be Something More

Take a step back and look at the big picture

It’s easy to become cynical in today’s world, especially for those who follow current events and have a desire to stay informed. Too many people are blind or dulled to both the great evil and goodness in the world. I invite you to take a step back and look at the big picture; notice the beauty that still surrounds us. There is something behind that beauty that is rarely discussed, something that is in our very genetic code and the natural world that we inhabit.

“The genetic code is 3.6 billion years old. It’s time for a rewrite.” — Tom Knight, professor at MIT’s Artificial Intelligence Lab

Given the open statements announcing the intent to re-write the genetic code of the planet – and the release of genetically modified organisms into the biosphere – the question naturally arises: Do we really know what we are tampering with? Here is one example: So called “Junk DNA” – the 97% of our human genetic code that has been deemed to be meaningless – has been found to have “features of a language.” Science Magazine reported in 1994,

“Using statistical techniques borrowed from linguistics, [Physicist Eugene Stanley] says he and his colleges… from Harvard Medical School, ‘have shown fairly clearly that the ‘junk’ has all the features of a language.’

They… tried a test developed by information theorist Claude Shannon in the 1950’s to quantify the “redundancy” of any string of characters. Languages are redundant sequences, explains Stanley: You can fill in a typographical error by noting nearby characters. A random sequence, in contrast, has no redundancy. Applied to junk DNA, Shannon’s formula revealed a surprising amount of redundancy – another sign that something was written in these mysterious stretches.”

Yet another astonishing scientific fact comes in the form of a sequence of numbers discovered by an Italian mathematician named Leonardo of Pisa (known as Fibonacci) in 1202. This sequence, known under such names as Phi, the Golden Ratio, the Divine Proportion, etc., is found throughout nature. Fibonacci discovered Phi when studying the breeding of rabbits. The number of pairs of rabbits increased from 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, and so on. Each new number in the series is the sum of the two before it. The ratio of each pair equals Phi (1.618…)

Far above our heads, beyond planet Earth and our solar system, galaxies even follow the Golden Ratio

This proportion of 1.618 can be seen in the architecture of the Parthenon of ancient Greece. Artists and architects have used the Golden Ratio for thousands of years to create visually pleasing works. Beyond this, Phi can also be found throughout nature, including the human body. For example, the human finger is divided into four sections (2,3,5,8), the ratio of which equals the Golden Ratio of 1.618. The human ear is also proportioned according to Phi.

Far above our heads, beyond planet Earth and our solar system, galaxies even follow the Golden Ratio. Hurricanes on earth also exhibit the Golden Ratio, which “…makes the Golden Ratio’s presence all the more remarkable,” because “Hurricanes are structures in the gravitational field of the Earth, while galaxies are self-gravitating objects in space,” writes Robert Roy Britt for Space.com.

One of the most profound discoveries related to the Golden Ratio came early this year. Even at the quantum level, the Golden Ratio of 1.618 has been discovered by researchers at Oxford and Bristol Universities. Professor Alan Tennant, one of the leading scientist involved in the research project remarked that, “Such discoveries are leading physicists to speculate that the quantum, atomic scale world may have its own underlying order.” Science Daily reports,

“By tuning the system and artificially introducing more quantum uncertainty the researchers observed that the chain of atoms acts like a nanoscale guitar string. Dr. Radu Coldea from Oxford University, who is the principal author of the paper and drove the international project from its inception a decade ago until the present, explains: “Here the tension comes from the interaction between spins causing them to magnetically resonate. For these interactions we found a series (scale) of resonant notes: The first two notes show a perfect relationship with each other. Their frequencies (pitch) are in the ratio of 1.618…, which is the golden ratio famous from art and architecture.”

What should we gather from all of this? Perhaps the undiscovered mysteries of the universe far exceed what we do know. Humanity is not a disease as the scientific dictatorship has branded us. Claims that man is a mere animal have provided part of the “moral” justification for crimes against humanity throughout history. Millions of lives were never lived and stories never told as the end result of these mass-murder campaigns. Alexis de Tocqueville, the French historian well known for his momentous work Democracy in America (1835), was appalled by the arrogance of the “materialists” of his day who he regarded as “natural enemies of the people.” Tocqueville wrote,

“…if you encounter among the opinions of a democratic people any of those wicked theories that intimate that everything perishes with the body, you must regard those who profess such theories as natural enemies of the people. There are many things about the materialists that offend me. Their doctrines seem to me pernicious, and their pride revolts me… When they have done enough to their estimation to prove that they are mere brutes, they strut about as proudly as if they had proven they were gods.”

When the Rockefeller Foundation began its central mission to discover the biological workings of man in order to better control him, some members of the scientific community spoke out. Chester Bernard served as president of the Rockefeller Foundation from 1948-1952. He saw what the Foundation and much of the scientific community was attempting to do at the time with eugenics and spoke out against it, but couched his criticism with the assumption of pure motives. Bernard writes in the Rockefeller Foundation’s 1948 Annual Report,

“Inherent in our systematic efforts to promote the welfare of mankind there may be an assumption that… by reason and science we may govern the future of unborn generations in ways that we know are right… Do we mean that because we have learned to navigate the tides we shall also control them? … We have already begun the attempts to regulate local weather. Where do we think we shall stop — with the control of the speed of rotation of the earth, of its revolution around the sun?… Pride goeth before a fall. All our efforts will promote only disaster if they are not done in the humility appropriate to our ignorance, never forgetting that we have not made the earth or the heavens above it.”

“…For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse…” – Romans Chapter 1 Verse 20

  1. Gregory … the link is a dead-end requiring a user name and password. Perhaps you could make this particular post to your blog public?

  2. Our Universe is nothing more than an “Experiment” in our Creator’s laboratory.

  3. There are no morals in golden ratios, Phi, Pi etc. There is nothing human or humane in it. It is just an equation (one of)for the machine of the world. There is no good, and there is no evil in mathematics. There is no love in it. Or if you want- love is evol(ution) backwards, as evil is live backwards. Julian Huxley wrote about it, as did Albert Pike, as did the theosophists. And there is no free will in mathematics. So, what the article engages in is trying to assert spirituality deriving from materialism, and that is where the d-evil lies. and where evol-ution begins.

      For Real! Come on man! You just don’t like God…..
      The point is that there is a mind behind this whole thing.
      If I build a car engine from the ground up the engine itself has no morality, but it did take a mind to create it.
      p.s.
      Evolution attempts to explain what happens when you have life, it cannot explain how life began.

  4. Bernard was correct in his conclusion that man lacks humility regarding the origin of his existence. Sadly, those who analyze his observations fall into the same murky well of determination that he did.

    Astronomers have just discovered the universe to be at least three times larger than originally thought, that is as far as the number of stars is concerned. Yet while they report such discoveries, they continue, like drones, to refuse to acknowledge that there is intelligence behind creation of the universe. The evidence is so overwhelming, only fools would deny that evidence.

    It is astounding that intelligent creatures, who themselves invent or create, continue, with haughtiness and pride to deny such intelligence and the evidence of such.

    The above article’s title seems to echo what must lie dormant in the psyche, at the end of the day, of every scientist who bases their learned conclusions on the premise of “evolution” and yet are still prone to express dismay, probably the same dismay, the author of this article has with the words; “There Must Be Something More”!

    Oh, for the mind of an innocent child who can, with and open and unhindered heart, comprehend the beauty and wonder of the universe as well as everything around him. This is only possible if unbiased love is involved. An exclamation that there must be something more is evidence that humble love has been cut short.

    In looking at all creation, the golden ratio is found almost everywhere along with other mind boggling keys evidencing intelligence in design. Still, they conclude that evolution is the reason for such perfection.

    How sad such a limited quest for ultimate truth on their part. The real conclusions are on the edge of their tongues, but they remain blinded by their own philosophies. They are blinded by the wonderment of the endless forest and still fail to see the planter of the trees, in action.

    For those really interested in knowing, the Planter is none other than Jehovah the Almighty God who also happens to be known as the God of Love. Read and re-read the words of Romans 1:20 and soon, you may get the sense of its meaning as well. Apparently the author of this article has……………
