Two Dimensions of Prayer
So far, in this series, we’ve become acquainted with an evolution from the zero dimension of Thought to the first dimension of Connection to God and all creation in real time.
The second dimension refers to Light squared (l x w). The line becomes a plane – Thought vibrating in two dimensions. According to Biblical numerology, the number 2 represents a division or the second person of the Trinity.
Light is EM energy. Einstein defined energy as mass multiplied by the speed of light squared. E = mc2. (Lest you panic at the thought of wrestling with the famous Theory of Relativity, rest assured that we will be exploring philosophical applications here. No quantitative calculations necessary!)
Let’s consider what we already know about this equation. Mass is the measurement of inertia (the tendency to remain at rest) in matter. It’s different than weight; it’s the amount of force needed to move an object. C represents the only constant in the universe: the speed of light. Everything else moves at speeds relative to light. So c2 is the measurement of light squared. The beam of photons becomes a plane of photons – a wall of EM energy.
“To bring this harmony more completely into the light, to glimpse yet more the ontological order … such appears to be the true mission of pure science.” – Prince Louis de Broglie
The “Plane” Truth
According to superstring theory, the strings may exist in one dimension, but create a plane through movement. (Imagine the pattern made through space by a string moving sideways.) A plane is an imperceptible dimension (to us, anyway). It has length and width, but no height (or depth). Genesis 1:6 and 7 describe a separation between heaven and earth.
Creation scientists conclude that, in the beginning, God created a hydrogen barrier in earth’s upper atmosphere. Besides the pervasive photon, hydrogen is the most common element in the world. Because light is the energy that interacts with matter to create elements, science verifies the probability that hydrogen may have been the first element to emerge in creation as photons were multiplied by photons, manifesting an electromagnetic plane.
So, this limitless plane between heaven and earth could be earth’s hydrogen capsule that became rain during the Great Flood of Noah’s time. (A plane does not need to be flat.) Is it merely coincidence that we speak in metaphysical terms about our prayers “hitting the ceiling” or calling for God’s blessings to “rain down”?
What happens when mass is bisected by pure energy?
Think of an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) – a plane of light that bisects a body to see everything inside. We’re reminded of Hebrews 4:12:
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than a double-edged sword, able to divide soul and spirit; joints and marrow, discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
Like the Holy Spirit, this two-dimensional plane of light illuminates our motives and acts like a laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation – this focused light energy is used for precision measuring, cutting, and fusing in many areas of science and medicine. Important applications also exist in areas of communication, sound recording and holographic display) – a knife to separate divine intentions from our base nature.
Modern science has proved the purifying power of the ultra-violet rays of light in applications from laundry to blood disorders! In fact, by virtue of the lens of the eye, light gains direct access to our bloodstream. The miracle of photosynthesis illustrates the potential of light creating energy for life in plants.
Current physics suggests that space exists in only two dimensions until an infinite measure of gravity bends that space. This idea implies that all change is a result of mass harnessing the power of the infinite. Thought-waves traveling at light-speed, create gravitational fields that interact with matter to alter the states of mass. This is more scientific proof that prayer has real power.
The 2nd dimension is an invitation to interact with Truth.
Mass, energized by Truth creates powerful waves of change. E=mc2.
The science of quantum physics is an invitation to let go of long-held beliefs and conceptions about the very definition of matter, and entertain metaphysical ideas about music, sacred geometry, and transcendent dimensions. A startling recurrent theme becomes clear in the conclusions of many authors wrestling with the mystical facets of science. Imminent dramatic change is the theme sung by the mystics of our age.
But a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such as these to worship Him. God is Spirit, and His wroshipers must worship Him in spirit and in truth. John 4:23, 24
During a visit to Indian City, Oklahoma in 2004, our Native American tour guide admitted that tribal chiefs were encouraging young men to relearn the ways of living off the land, convinced that the country will soon face cataclysm. According to my Judaism teacher, orthodox rabbis believe the Messiah will come soon. Christian evangelicals are preaching that we are living in the end times, and the metaphysicians claim that creation is vibrating at a higher frequency, triggering a cosmic shift in awareness leading to a transcendental existence.
The concept of a Rapture (mystical transportation to the spiritual realm) is based on harmonic frequency dynamics! Certain stimulation, including harmonic tones and deep meditation (like prayer), creates vibration in the pineal gland of the brain causing the sensation of floating or flying, and in some cases, physical levitation. Perhaps this describes the state of mind receptive to the Rapture.
“But you, Daniel, shut up these words and seal the book [of prophecy], even to the time of the end when many shall run to and fro, searching anxiously, and knowledge shall increase greatly.” Daniel 12:4
The second dimension, or plane of truth, challenges us to discover a synthesis of reality. When every major belief system is anticipating cosmic change, maybe it’s time to “look up, for your redemption is nigh”. Pray with the knowledge that it matters.
