The Force that Controls the Universe

“This is what the Lord says — your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the Lord, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself.”
— Isaiah 44:24, NIV.

When you peel back layers of objective realities, one will come to the realization that there is a limit to everything in the observable universe. Everything that we know and experience is in every way, limited by space and time. But what if we take a look further back in time, rewinding the clock back to the very formation of the observable universe. There, we will find an energy of some sort, creating and shaping the very universe that we know today. Many scientists agree to the idea that there is a hypothetical energy form (dark energy [1]) and a hypothetical form of matter (dark matter [2]) that shape the universe into the way it is today. However, I prefer to see these as the aftereffect of a larger occurrence in a realm beyond the observable universe.

Understanding the Force that governs the observable universe will help us put our earthly lives into context and determine the role that our physical lives should play within the vastness of the trans-physical realities. This is the wisdom of the after-life, whether or not you believe in it or not.

“He is before all things, and in Him, all things hold together.”
— Colossians 1:17, NIV.

The question about the origins of the observable universe will continue to linger on as long as humanity is bound by the limitations of physics. Nothing that is three-dimensional can transcend dimensions and venture beyond the limits of physical constraints. Likewise, nothing that is limited by time can travel back in time to a point where it does not exist (or if it does, in a different form). Hence, when modern sciences of the physical world show that there is a great unknown at the very beginning of the universe — the point of singularity [3] — the question we should be asking ourselves is whether or not there is something beyond the beginning and all that has ever existed.

The answer to the question is likely to become a can of worms for both scientists and religious scholars alike as they struggle to answer questions beyond the realm of the physical. However, such new insights will also allow humanity to answer philosophical questions such as “is there a world beyond ours”, “is there life after death”, and “what determines the existence of all there ever is (or was)”.

I prefer to believe that there is a Controlling Force that transcends physical realities behind the formation and sustaining of the observable universe. After all, nothing can be formed out of nothing. Even if naturalism were to suggest that there is an accidental mix of sheer luck that gave rise to life and all that ever was, there must be a Force that initiated it and kept it all together.

Based on the logic of deduction, we can now safely say that all that ever was, is, and will be, will have a purpose for their existence in a finite cosmos. This purpose comes from the Controlling Force that is not bounded by the constraints of space-time.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
— Romans 8:28, NIV.

This Controlling Force is the Lord of the Universe, the Maker of the heavens and the earth. He is God.
