“Do you think perhaps, that the universe that we could be living in, is simply a brain cell to another living being?”
That question was asked on a trending Tumblr post, in reference to the study below:
You can find a link to the entire article at the end of this post. But just bear with me for a moment:
This just blew my mind! Can you just imagine that our entire universe is just ONE of God’s brain cells?
The average adult human brain has about 100 billion cells.
How many brain cells does God have? Ok maybe too literal an analogy. We know that we aren’t simply one of God’s brain cells, but the magnitude of God is seen here. He has orchestrated our entire world from the smallest cell to the largest universe, our entire being. To think that He, who is bigger than all the universes, can possibly love a person like me? It’s astounding and I am humbled. So who can know everything and think they have all the information and knowledge to discredit God?
I can refer to this bible verse:
For, “Who can know the LORD’s thoughts? Who knows enough to teach him?” But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16
The only way that we can begin to comprehend God is by having the mind of Christ. There are so many things that the human mind cannot understand. But as we dive into a deeper relationship with Him. We know him more. Without him we are nothing. He created us so that we might be a part of his family. He loves us. To think how small we are in comparison to him is humbling.
But, He created you with a purpose!
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
Watch this video on the brain of a developing infant and just think that God orchestrated this. There had to have been an intelligent designer to come up with such intelligent design. Watch below:
Wow. “The brain is the seat of our consciousness, of who we are, and in understanding where it comes from, we understand where we come from.”
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. Psalm 13:13
Food for thought.
Think of it like this. No thing in existence can give the reason for its existence in or of itself. That means the Big Bang theory (the theory not the show) fails to give a reason for its own existence. The only answer that makes sense is that something transcendent of this universe can take the credit as “first cause”. God is not just bigger than our universe he transcends it.
Yet despite this, He loves you and you can see his love for you throughout creation!
Take time to think of God’s presence throughout creation and the workings of this world. God created the mind and from those minds are many things around you! Take time to thank God for all the good things around you.
