Controlling Mother Nature = God
The term ‘god’ means, according to Merriam-Webster dictionary, :
The supreme or ultimate reality: as
a : the Being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped as creator and ruler of the universe
b Christian Science : the incorporeal divine Principle ruling over all as eternal Spirit : infinite Mind
2: a being or object believed to have more than natural attributes and powers and to require human worship; specifically : one controlling a particular aspect or part of reality
By this definition from Merriam-Webster.com, a being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped as creator and ruler of the universe could be applied to several human applications about our society. [Examples (apple and Steve Jobs) (Zuckerberg and Facebook)]
Let us examine this idea of universe and beings. The universe that we occupy now is governed by the almighty sun, who provides this planet and all of its inhabitants with the essentials for life. The sun is merely a universe within a ‘multi-verse’ called the galaxy. This galaxy is merely a universe (including all of this that it controls and governs) inside of a larger multi-verse, in which this could go on and on for trillions and trillions and trillions of light-years. Coming back to Earth and the creator, The Sun, she gives off light, heat, and energy for the planet Earth, providing us with the necessary properties of life sustaining components to endure and occupy the planet. Now speaking of giving off light, heat and energy, the human does this as well. For example, the athlete.
The athlete gives off all three criteria for god-like classification – light (the entertainment aspect of being seen while performing their athletic expertise), heat (the physical temperature of the body – although not as important as the Sun’s heat), and energy (their actions, sayings, positions, and gestures are all forms of energy while participating within their sport). With these three simple criteria met, the certain athlete could be viewed by fellow humans (and some athletes) as a person of god-like classification. Be that the idea of super elite athletes, we have Michael Jordan, Jeff Gordon, Roger Federer, Tim Duncan, Serena and Venus Williams, Danica Patrick Li Na, Maria Sharapova, Tiger Woods, Lisa Leslie, and Ken Block, all who have mastered
their fields of athletics and could be viewed as perfect in power, goodness, and rulers over their specific sports franchise (from driving a car, to swinging a racket).
Now are they going to help you spiritually within the confines of your mind for a better outlook on life? Possibly not, but their expertise will definitely help you on the physical sporting aspect. Sports are just one of many of the various avenues that the human has “god-like” capabilities within this multi-verse of opportunity. From sports to the arts, to agriculture, to pharmaceuticals, to technology – all aspects require one piece of important software, “knowledge”. The knowledge to know how to dribble and drive to the hoop, to corning and maintain driving at a 55 degree turn at 135 miles per hour, or swing a racket at full speed, serving a tennis ball over 110 miles per hours. Behind the mechanical aspect of these tasks, they all require the knowledge of how to do these things first. Understanding the task you are involved in and making yourself better through practice, trial and error, and consistency.
Off of the physical assessment of god-like beings, we go to the great minds of the information superhighway, the masters of the internet communication society, Mr. Steve Jobs, one of three of the team that “created” Apple, and Facebook CEO, creator, Mark Zuckerberg. Both men who had inner visionary dreams of bringing a new idea to the surface of the Earthly existence, to make communication and information a universal player among so many multi-verses of possibilities. Both creating a device that includes the humans who are willing to participate within their operation (also purchasing the apple product) of communication, this is the sign of how Earth works with the center of this uni-verse (the Sun). Each product created that is purchased from apple, or every account that is started on Facebook is now like a new human, ready to grow, gather information, communicate with associates and colleagues, and become apart of the social network – or for humans, the human network. The human requires the sun to operate and function while occupying space (their own uni-verse to create and make something of their own) on this planet (the large multi-verse of other uni-verses “humans” that occupy space). The products of the technological perspective both require three things: a device to work from, internet access, and electricity to power it all. Light, heat, and energy – the light would be seen here as the device for visual sight of the object, the heat is your connection that powers your devices, and the energy is the internet at which the source of your information and data come from.
If you can hold control to the world around you, the properties and ideas that make them, you hold the controller – think of a remote control car. The rc car is your world, the remote is the knowledge of the actions that can happen / be made. It seems this applies to many levels of our existence today.
