    To recite the Jedi code, there is no emotion, there is peace. There is no ignorance, there is knowledge. There is no passion, there is serenity. There is no chaos, there is harmony. There is no death, there is the Force. To recite the Sith code, peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion I gain strength. Through strength I gain power. Through power I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me. These are 2 different philosophies and perspectives from which we can see the existence and also the will of God. We can discover God and his existence by the light of science.

    God, as the ultimate architect of the universe may need to ask himself some questions. How much choice does he have in constructing the universe? Why does he choose one set of laws and universal configurations over another? Does the universe even need him as a creator in the first place, and how did he even spring into being to begin with? Why do we and our elegant universe exist? These great questions of our time that God may need to ask himself give us insights, into the very mind of God.

    It is through science that we will unravel the mechanisms of the mind of God. Science is knowledge, and knowledge is power, so on our journey of discovering the mind of God, we will become more like him, since God is the ultimate power in the universe. With this power slowly beginning to crackle at our fingertips, it seems there are 3 distinct possibilities for the future of mankind. The first is that we destroy ourselves with our own hand. The second is that we evolve into a highly advanced interstellar species. The third is that the teachings of religion and the coming Armageddon are true. I have faith that the ultimate destiny of humanity will be a fusion of the second and the third possibilities.

    Perhaps the greatest cosmic visionary for the future of humanity was Nikola Tesla. The following paper is an excerpt from Tesla’s legendary paper titled “Man’s Greatest Achievement.” This is his insight into the ultimate destiny of the man on Terra.
    Man's Greatest Achievement (1907;1930)
    What has the future in store for this strange being, born of a breath, of perishable tissue, yet Immortal, with his powers fearful and Divine?
    Variant 1 : An early version of this essay as quoted by Tesla in a letter (dated 19 April 1908) published in The New York Times (21 April 1908)
    What magic will be wrought by him in the end? What is to be his greatest deed, his crowning achievement? According to an adopted theory, every ponderable atom is differentiated from a tenuous fluid, filling all space merely by spinning motion, as a whirl of water in a calm lake. By being set in movement this fluid, the ether, becomes gross matter. Its movement arrested, the primary substance reverts to its normal state. It appears, then, possible for man through harnessed energy of the medium and suitable agencies for starting and stopping ether whirls to cause matter to form and disappear. At his command, almost without effort on his part, old worlds would vanish and new ones would spring into being. He could alter the size of this planet, control its seasons, adjust its distance from the sun, guide it on its eternal journey along any path he might choose, through the depths of the universe. He could make planets collide and produce his suns and stars, his heat and light; he could originate life in all its infinite forms. To cause at will the birth and death of matter would be man's grandest deed, which would give him the mastery of physical creation, make him fulfill his ultimate destiny.
    Variant 2: New York American (6 July 1930)
    Can man control this grandest, most awe-inspiring of all processes in nature? When a child is born its sense-organs are brought in contact with the outer world. The waves of sound, heat, and light beat upon its feeble body, its sensitive nerve-fibres quiver, the muscles contract and relax in obedience: a gasp, a breath, and in this act a marvelous little engine, of inconceivable delicacy and complexity of construction, unlike any on earth, is hitched to the wheel-work of the Universe. The little engine labors and grows, performs more and more involved operations, becomes sensitive to ever subtler influences and now there manifests itself in the fully developed being — Man — a desire mysterious, inscrutable and irresistible: to imitate nature, to create, to work himself the wonders he perceives. Inspired to this task he searches, discovers and invents, designs and constructs, and covers with monuments of beauty, grandeur and awe, the star of his birth. He descends into the bowels of the globe to bring forth its hidden treasures and to unlock its immense imprisoned energies for his use. He invades the dark depths of the ocean and the azure regions of the sky. He peers in the innermost nooks and recesses of molecular structure and lays bare to his gaze worlds infinitely remote. He subdues and puts to his service the fierce, devastating spark of Prometheus, the titanic forces of the waterfall, the wind and the tide. He tames the thundering bolt of Jove and annihilates time and space. He makes the great Sun itself his obedient toiling slave. Such is his power and might that the heavens reverberate and the whole earth trembles by the mere sound of his voice. To create and to annihilate material substance, cause it to aggregate in forms according to his desire, would be the supreme manifestation of the power of Man's mind, his most complete triumph over the physical world. What has the future in store for this strange being, born of a breath, of perishable tissue, yet Immortal, with his powers fearful and Divine? What magic will be wrought by him in the end? What is to be his greatest deed, his crowning achievement? Long ago he recognized that all perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or a tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the Akasha or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life-giving Prana or Creative Force, calling into existence, in never ending cycles, all things and phenomena. The primary substance, thrown into infinitesimal whirls of prodigious velocity, becomes gross matter; the force subsiding, the motion ceases and matter disappears, reverting to the primary substance.
    Can man control this grandest, most awe-inspiring of all processes in nature? Can he harness her inexhaustible energies to perform all their functions at his bidding? more still cause them to operate simply by the force of his will? If he could do this, he would have powers almost unlimited and supernatural. At his command, with but a slight effort on his part, old worlds would disappear and new ones of his planning would spring into being. He could fix, solidify and preserve the ethereal shapes of his imagining, the fleeting visions of his dreams. He could express all the creations of his mind on any scale, in forms concrete and imperishable. He could alter the size of this planet, control its seasons, guide it along any path he might choose through the depths of the Universe. He could cause planets to collide and produce his suns and stars, his heat and light. He could originate and develop life in all its infinite forms. To create and to annihilate material substance, cause it to aggregate in forms according to his desire, would be the supreme manifestation of the power of Man's mind, his most complete triumph over the physical world, his crowning achievement, which would place him beside his Creator, make him fulfill his Ultimate Destiny.

    That was in my opinion the greatest article written in the history of the human race. So how do we take our first steps forward to being placed beside the Creator and fulfilling our Ultimate Destiny? We should start with the galactic super civilization of God and the programming of the Existential Game.

    Jesus introduces us to his gospel by saying he is the life, and that those who believe in him shall live. Many however contend that the bible is a product of man, having evolved through many translations and revisions. It is said that Constantine financed a new bible, with the old gospels of the human side of Christ omitted, gathered up, and burned. Jesus recognized 3 basic parts of the Old Testament, those being the laws of Moses, or the Torah, the Prophets, and the Psalms, which point to his coming. So when will the second coming of Christ be?
