God and Gravity
A very perceptive hubber dropped on my lap the rather tantalzing conjecture, apparently posited to him by Sir Stephen Hawkings (the noted astro-physicist) in a half-awake dream, that Gravity was the only "entity" present before and at the moment of the "Big Bang". The concept that God was in fact there in the beginning, the "initiator" of all things that is in the universe, have always been the core belief of theists. SO THE QUESTION ARISES, IS GOD AND GRAVITY A CONGRUENT ENTITY? Both as an astro-physical as well as a meta-physical REALITY?
The run-of the-mill conjecture can easily be discarded either because the human mind that may have initiated it is feeble or diseased. Mr. Hawking's mind is neither. The hubber, who thought he was just being made the conduit for such a tantalizing conjecture, I believe is intellectually well intentioned.
For this particular conjecture to be given serious thought by serious people, it should be plausible enough, in the context of current astro-physical thinking. For this conjecture to become a concept it should be inferred in ways that it does not escape into the realm of the purely metaphysical. For this concept to be composed into reality, it should be meaningful, purposeful, and finally truthful to the human mind that initiated it to begin with.
I believe that this conjecture proposed above is one of those that could in fact travel the process of conceptualiztion to composition, without being degraded along the way. But effectuation? I seriously doubt it.
