Hello again!

Something was born in a humanoid mind about 100,000 years ago. When it was born, it was its first appearance in the known universe, and the place it was born could only have been a humanoid mind. It would go on to define humanity, but first it had to get out of that mind.

Now we don't know what this thing that has just been born into the universe is going to grow into yet, because it has only just been conceived, but we do know it is an object - it exists. Its difference to anything else in the universe and indeed that human mind, came from its own objectivity and was the first instant of time of its existence. Now that it exists, it can start making its way to the edge of the mind where it can be released.

That thing was "meaning" - and that individual projected meaning onto something and that something was the subject. So we've now got objective meaning in the human mind and whatever that human projected meaning onto had subjective meaning. It was more than the sum of its parts - it was a new way of being. Something could now have meaning.

That human wasn't alone. They were with their brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, parents and children etc etc. They now had to get not just that subjective meaning they had projected onto something, they had to get objective meaning into the minds of the others in the group. Obviously that succeeded, but it wasn't difficult to transmit because they all had conscious human minds too. Even though we don't know who that human was, or what that first thing they projected meaning onto was, we know of no other occurrences of this in life or the rest of existence.

Those people with their new way of being now had to stand the test of time, the nature of life on Earth and the violence of the universe. The first big test was the Toba eruption 70,000 years ago which reduced the human population to 1000 to 10,000 breeding pairs. The conjecture I make is that those people wouldn't have survived and go on to outlast other hominids, such as neanderthals, if they didn't have meaning.

Spiritually speaking now, when this thing called meaning was born, God's knowledge of it was instantaneous. Before that God never had meaning, life never had meaning and existence never had meaning. Standing the test of existence, meaning increased God's stature. It changed God, and now He could observe something as having a meaning above just its existence.

This is how it stands now. When someone at the Federal Reserve hits 'enter' on a keyboard to start printing electronic money, God knows the meaning of each electron as it travels down the fiber-optic cable to the big banks to buy their worthless assets. He knows if this meant people got laid off from work because of this debt burdening, or if people couldn't afford food because of it. He knows that meaning can cause misery and even death, as well as survival. That person that hit enter, judged themselves instantaneously by what meaning they'd brought into the world - and they brought misery.

We - if there is a 'we' - are getting all our poor judgements of meaning reflecting back on us now. Humanity is simply not going to endure because of this. God doesn't judge us, we judge ourselves - our judgement is immediate and final.


Joseph,
That is an interesting hypothesis. However, physicists have difficulties accepting the part a bout God not having any "meaning" prior to "meaning" (or perhaps awareness?) some 70,000 years ago. 

WHY?

According to these scientists, our pixelated, quantum, spooky action universe has all the characteristics of virtual reality and fails the test, by various experiments they have performed, of being a physically real universe!

I know. that is WEIRD (but not to a monist! ;)). What's more, they claim NO PHYSICAL UNIVERSE has the energy to make a virtual reality one! So whoever is ultimately GENERATING this (or these) "virtual reality universe(s)" CANNOT be from a PHYSICAL UNIVERSE!


Now it gets REALLY good.
  They claim that, uh, see below while you play the Twilight zone music.   


All I can say is, that sure is a strange way to prove God exists and has a mind that has thought us up. I agree that God exists and created the whole video game universe ex nihilo, However, I resent being called a video game character!
Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Ps. 97:11
