God – The Original Bluetooth Signal

   The other day I was trying to pair my headset with my laptop through bluetooth.

   If you have ever tried to pair a device with bluetooth, it is basically one originating source sending out a signal looking to be “heard” by another device attuned to that frequency.

   In my headset when I first wore it and pushed the button to get it to search for my other device I heard the headset saying “pairing,” then a brief pause and another “pairing,” is heard until it finally discovers whatever device is synced to hear that bluetooth’s particular frequency. 

   While I was doing this, I thought for a moment about the Adjutant Mind Spirits in the Urantia Book (Paper 34), the seven adjutant circuits that register and influence intelligent coordination among all beings throughout time and space, even to the evolutionary worlds, and further, how, using this same bluetooth example, the Adjutants are constantly looking to be “received” by minds hoping to be “paired.”

   We are told that the Adjutant Mind Spirits, and there are seven of them, denoted as spirit circuits, are the Spirits of:

Intuition (life preservation)

Understanding (problem-solving)

Cooperation (problem solving with others)

Knowledge (higher functioning accumulated experience)

Counsel (seek and exchange knowledge from others)

Worship (desire to look beyond the physical to the spiritual)

Wisdom (unification of experience on spiritual and physical levels)

   These seven “adjutants” are in reality, circuits that emit out into space from the Divine Mother Spirit (or the Holy Spirit, if you prefer) to attempt contact with those beings who possess minds capable of hearing the signal, or can “connect” with the circuit, and in doing so, achieve a new level of mental capacity.

   These spirit circuits look to “touch” the minds of creation spread hither and yon, from the lowest animal mind to the highest functioning spirit mind of mortals. Once connection is made, pairing ensues.

   This may be why sometimes people feel “spiritual;” as if there is some periodic “connection,” or “pairing” going in when you (as a device) occasionally have the ability to discern truth

   As with bluetooth, the farther you wander away from the source, the less reliable the signal becomes until you wander too far and the signal is longer there to guide you.

   Also, just like bluetooth, when our minds are filled with interference (emotional distractions or even mental illness), we might find “pairing with the spirit” challenging because our devices (our minds, really) are not propitious to the ‘leadings of the spirit.’

I believe praying calibrates the mind so that connections can be improved and messages can be better understood from God the Spirit. After all, it is our minds that connect with God, not our bodies.

   And all of this occurred to me in the blink of any eye one day while setting up my headset, which paired beautifully, I might add.

Mind: The Ultimate Mystery

Common sense tells us the mind is the product of the body. Ask any person and they will tell you the body came first, then the mind. Makes sense, right?

Asking it another way: Did the physical universe come first and then mind evolved over time resulting in the eventual appearance of humans with large enough brains to put those minds to work? Does that make sense?

Did physical matter produce minded beings?

Most scientists would answer in the affirmative, that what we consider “mind” is nothing more than a natural outgrowth of physical evolution. We can, through all kinds of science, show that man evolved and as his mind grew larger and his central nervous became more complex (for a variety of reasons such as better nutrition intake and having an opposable thumb), his thinking improved and also became more complex. I can agree with this observation, it makes sense.

We might even logically deduce this process taking place on any world where the right combinations of complex organic compounds could produce complex life forms that also have intelligent mind function.  We can then take the next step in deducing that intelligent life is likely to exist not just on our world, but on many other worlds in a vast and almost infinite universe. One day we may even meet or have contact with other intelligent life and it will be an incredible experience, especially if we have shared commonalities of personality.

To conceive that minded beings operate throughout the universe is, at least to me, an exciting proposition. If true, this will prove that MIND is part of the organic makeup of all of the hydrogen and carbon that makes up universal space. Its a pleasant notion to believe the universe at large is capable of producing minded beings who get better at being minded beings.

But now I want to propose another theory, one in which postulates that MIND comes before matter, a pre-requisite of matter, and that the whole reason Matter (the physical universe) is organized as it is for us to interpret and make sense of it, is because a Mind planned it. Some call it the Universal Mind, some call it God.

If God is real and is the master planner then the second hypothesis must be true, which is to say Mind, even a Supreme Mind, was a prerequisite to life in the subjective sense; that our minds on earth were actually planned to occur and the evolutionary plan of animal ascension (higher mind activity) was purposely put in motion; it was intended that earth would eventually produce higher-functioning animals who could reason, seek truth, attain wisdom, and yes, worship the very mind that set all of this in motion.

If one takes the position that Mind is merely the natural outworking of physical matter eventuating into highly complex brain activity that can actually communicate with other highly complex brains, then you still have to explain how Mind (a non-material form of energy) can arise from non-personal carbon and hydrogen material.

To put it simply, mind operates independent of matter even though mind needs matter – a physical arena – in which to function. But Matter doesn’t need mind, necessarily, so why would it produce an entity that works independent of it?

The only plausible answer is that Mind produced Matter, not the other way around, as we are prone to believe.

Where do you think Mind comes from, was it pre- or post-matter and energy.

What do you think?
