Essenceism 1 - “Gods is not from this world”
Why was this book created?
For now, I am finishing the description of my search for First Cause, the search for the roots of the universe and man himself. You can get more knowledge on my websites: www.istota.org and www.essenceism.com. I do not want it to be a religious work, but research and science at the level of logically thinking man and drawing logical conclusions. These are the features of the researcher: logical thinking and drawing logical conclusions. My level of scientific knowledge is not academic. It is rather a level of diligent student of natural sciences, especially physics. That is why I am not ashamed to call my research work. In view of the religious threads appearing in it, I always have research and scientific distance, although even the most meticulous researcher is not just a soulless machine.
I do not identify with any existing religion, church or creed. My theological knowledge is only partly due to the search for a universal truth contained in special books written by inspired artists. I mostly drew my knowledge for this study from my experiences as a participant in religious life, from many years of reflection and from the focus on the spiritual problems of people around me. I drew logical conclusions from all these experiences and made notes from them for many years. Now I present the fruits of my work.
I spent most of my life solving various problems. I did it as a student and then also as an ordinary employee, engineer, businessman and scientist. I did it because, despite being involved in everyday life, the existential questions, such as where I came from, what would happen after my death, did not give me peace, and whether there was a First Cause of all this.
That is why I devoted a lot of my adult life to participating in various religious denominations. It began with decades of friendship, from the student period, with a well-known Catholic priest-poet. Then came the time for a short time involvement in various smaller Christian denominations. During postgraduate studies I spent over three years in the Far East, during which I learned in practice the main religions of that part of the world. Finally, I devoted many years to a large world religious movement in which I became a missionary and with whom I traveled a piece of the world. As a businessman, I have repeatedly had the opportunity to visit the United States, African countries and Israel, where also, thanks to meetings with people familiar with religious topics, I have accumulated a lot of knowledge on issues that interest me. Once I got to know the mechanism of action of churches, religious groups and even sects, I decided to approach religious phenomena as a scientist. This last activity took me over ten years of work and is still ongoing.
To sum up the "religious" part of my life, I must say that I was a believer first and then I ceased to be. Then I decided to take the distance of an independent researcher towards religion. Armed with objective knowledge, especially in the field of physics, I began to search for God. I did it and I do it without prejudice, without burdening ourselves with any tradition, without listening to sermons from different denominations, and without treating the Bible, Koran and other books of this type as indisputable revealed truth. I treated these books as consultative sources, as one of the documents that must be taken into account when studying theological phenomena.
At the beginning I envied most scientists that they have specific research methods, tools, programs and analytical systems. They had their microscopes, chemical labs, hadron colliders and radiotelescopes. Meanwhile, I did not have any such tools yet, because the object of my research was God, the spiritual world and immaterial beings. For my research, I only had logical reasoning and testimonies of other people who experienced various spiritual experiences and who later, when they understood them in their own way, described them.
However, I decided to take advantage of the experience of other scientists who, when they could not get to know the objects of their research better, created new tools for themselves, even at the price of huge outlays. This was the case with the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland or the Hubble Telescope, for example. I did not want my head to remain my only tool, so I created "virtual" tools and logical strings of reasoning to study phenomena that humanity has been struggling with from the beginning. This is how my analytical system called essenceizm (essenceism - English version) was created.
The main subject of my research was and is God. I called him a ringing being. In this study, I tried to explain quite clearly who he is, where he is and how he works. I consider this explanation to be my first task. My second task was to prove that such a God - Ring Being - does not know evil. First, I applied the ontological argument, showing that the Perfect Creator created only good, having nothing to do with the emergence, existence and operation of evil. Then I added a logical argument claiming that evil that appeared after the work of creation could not fall within the scope of the Creator's work or modify it in any way. To this I added the biblical argument, which has been most elaborated here.
So this is all I wanted to accomplish by presenting my views in this paper.
