Quote from Infinite in All Directions: Gifford Lectures Given at Aberdeen, Scotland April–November 1985 by Freeman Dyson:

““My personal theology is described in the Gifford lectures that I gave at Aberdeen in Scotland in 1985, published under the title, Infinite In All Directions. Here is a brief summary of my thinking. The universe shows evidence of the operations of mind on three levels. The first level is elementary physical processes, as we see them when we study atoms in the laboratory. The second level is our direct human experience of our own consciousness. The third level is the universe as a whole. Atoms in the laboratory are weird stuff, behaving like active agents rather than inert substances. They make unpredictable choices between alternative possibilities according to the laws of quantum mechanics. It appears that mind, as manifested by the capacity to make choices, is to some extent inherent in every atom. The universe as a whole is also weird, with laws of nature that make it hospitable to the growth of mind. I do not make any clear distinction between mind and God. God is what mind becomes when it has passed beyond the scale of our comprehension. God may be either a world-soul or a collection of world-souls. So I am thinking that atoms and humans and God may have minds that differ in degree but not in kind. We stand, in a manner of speaking, midway between the unpredictability of atoms and the unpredictability of God. Atoms are small pieces of our mental apparatus, and we are small pieces of God’s mental apparatus. Our minds may receive inputs equally from atoms and from God. This view of our place in the cosmos may not be true, but it is compatible with the active nature of atoms as revealed in the experiments of modern physics. I don’t say that this personal theology is supported or proved by scientific evidence. I only say that it is consistent with scientific evidence.”

  Infinite In All Directions is a book on a wide range of subjects, including history,philosophy, research, technology, the origin of life and eschatology, by theoretical physicist Freeman Dyson. Published in 1988, this book is based on the author’s Gifford Lectures delivered in Aberdeen in 1985. Infinite in All Directions can roughly be summarized as a treatise on the universe and humanity’s role and its responsibilities.

What is God?

God contains both good and evil and has an internal struggle of various forces.  New Spiritual View. <<Click To Tweet>>

 




God is a general name for the community consisting of souls of all living and passed away organisms.
The soul is a consciousness of a live being, formed during it’s life in it’s physical body and capable of continued functioning for a long time outside of a physical body, acquiring new abilities.
The concept  of “god” is similar to a concept of “parliament”. The same way as a country’s parliament can address all inhabitants of the country with a single message, or a  separate member of the parliament can speak to a small group of his voters  on his own behalf.
As a parliament may have large associations, like parties as well as  small groups on the general interests, so the community of souls named “god” has it’s large and small groups, united by their interests.
Interests can be positive, from the point of view of common morality in the beginning of the 21st century, and negative.
The primary goal of the majority of associations  in the structure of god is preservation of mankind and improvement of vital conditions.
Single souls protect interests of their near relatives or other people that are of interest to them.  Do you have a “guardian angel”? This is how many people refer to a soul which helps them to overcome difficulties of life and prompts them the best course of actions.

But a recommendation can be received from a group of souls – without limits to the number of participating souls.
Bigger groups can influence the behavior of men of power, whose decisions have global consequences.

God has no sense organs — our bodies and bodies of other live organisms lend the use of their sense organs to god.
God is blind and deaf there where there is no other organism  perceiving an information through sense organs.

God can influence only live organisms and only through them can affect lifeless objects (excluding electricity in it’s lifeless form).
God is one of the most powerful defenders of life on the Earth. But  god is not omnipotent.
As all intelligent phenomena, god contains simultaneously both good and evil and always has an internal struggle of various forces.
God  does not know an exact course of events of the future independent of the stage of god’s development.
But god has an ability of instant association of many souls with all of their experience and knowledge into the uniform system, capable to predict the most possible course of events.
All life in our world  is a part of god. Our minds, knowledge and experience are opened and are accessible to god and actively by god are used.
God can endure  destruction of mankind and all life on a planet, but without having prospects to find new advanced live organisms, can gradually dissipate and voluntarily cease it’s existence.
Other gods can have physical bases distinct from ours on their planets in Space. Other gods can be at the same, earlier or later stages of development.
In the future scientists will find how to receive the results of work of a such system in the form accessible to perception and practical application.
The stage of direct conscious communications can be considered as the high form of development of intercommunication  between Society of live organisms and society of souls of the died organisms.
