A Complex Universe of Remarkable Simplicity
7 - Progress
Computers display memory within their chips, hierarchy among their electronic components, and communication between their various parts. But they have no real consciousness. They execute. They do not conceive.
Eternon, on the other hand, not only display memory, hierarchy, and communication, but they create ever more complex structures. In doing so, they expand their individual awareness, raise the level of their combined consciousness, and move closer to the Absolute, their origin and ultimate goal.
Take the simple Leading Eternon of a protein. It has some basic consciousness. It knows how to organize and supervise the array of other Eternons that form its molecule. If it joins a more complex structure, say a plant cell, it will have the opportunity to raise its consciousness. Through similar moves, it may learn to lead a gene, a whole organ, an entire human. And as nothing limits the actuation of Eternons to planet Earth, it may even come to lead some advanced being from another world.
Physicists consider that the universe is ruled by what they call the Law of Entropy. In plain words: everything tends to fall apart because it requires less energy to degrade than to create. For Eternism, however, another law steadfastly opposes the dismal notion of entropy. It is the Law of Enlightenment. Against an ineluctable material decay, there is a constant spiritual elevation. Far from plunging toward nothingness, we, as Eternons, are rising toward plenitude.
