Adding to comments from previous posts, that there is a substance (which author Robert Temple identifies as plasma) that fills the entire physical universe, we can also say that an intelligent Force is needed to act on this stuff, to create objects and bodies.
Nikola Tesla is credited with making the following statements: “All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or 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.”
“Only the existence of a field of force can account for the motions of the bodies as observed.”
And this week (December 2023) the astrophysicist Jamal Shrair has written, as part of a post on Facebook, that the scientific truths he has to reveal “can only be understood when the force that forms the universe is understood.”
The Rosicrucians always refer to Life as the Lifeforce, and say that this force comes together with Spirit Energy to produce a third aspect – the living Soul.
I consider Consciousness, as well as Life, to be Forces, not Energy. This is not to play semantics, just to clarify to my reader what exactly I mean when I use each of these terms.
Light is Energy and matter is made from Energy. I have read that some say we physical beings are like “frozen light.” It takes an intelligent, conscious Force to act on Energy and produce material objects.
The final point to consider today is that within the Heliosphere where our planet and Earthly realm exist, the source of both Light and Life is our Sun. In other words, both the ‘energetic stuff’ and the ‘creative force’ are solar in origin.
