The underlying architecture of existence includes the laws by which the machine operates. Within the teachings of Hermes, there is basic esoteric knowledge, 7 key secrets to the universe:
1. The all is mind; the Universe is mental.
2. As above, so below; as below, so above.
3. Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.
4. Everything is dual.
5. Everything flows.
6. Every cause has its effect.
7. Gender is in everything.
Good and evil have existed since the foundation of the universe however that came about, just like heat and cold, or light and dark. Just as cold is the absence of heat, so is dark the absence of light. God did not create evil, but rather it is the absence of God’s love within the heart. The paradox is that evil exists necessarily to bring about its contrasting good side, perhaps the most disturbing implication of Christianity. Free will is essential to enlightenment. God created evolution, but how I know not. There are 2 possibilities I see: God is an extraterrestrial at a supreme level of evolution that seeded life on Earth, or God is the creator of the universe. The latter is less likely, but may be at least to an extent true considering the sacred geometry of the Earth and celestial bodies. The universe has evolved through immensity and eternity to the miraculously fine-tuned state we now behold. Consciousness is the great miracle, and the great mystery. Life is the driving force of the universe of matter. It is the essential nature of the Universe. All is thought, all is motion, and all is manifestation. Earth, rather than the center of the universe, is but a drop in the greatest ocean, a second in the infinity of timeless beauty. The great question is what we will do with free will and the gift of life and how our choices will forge our destinies.
