We don’t know what we don’t know
Firstly let’s accept the general definition of God as sheer esse; the act of sheer existence.
In this definition, the time element is a factor worth examination. If we accept that God exists then does not existence have time associated with it? A beginning, middle and an end.
Certainly our natural world assumptions would have these parameters. Whereas if we try and understand more precisely what is meant by sheer existence, there is more there to examine.
We are informed by Jesus Christ, God made man that God was, is and always will be. Therefore a more precise expansion of sheer existence might be: perpetually sheer presence.
Perpetually sheer presence describes an ineffable God. Here is why:
1. Perpetually because is illustrates God’s consistence presence without the limitation of time defining or limiting our understanding.
2. Sheer because he is absolute, pure, complete and total.
3. Presence because he is infinite in his existence, always with us, yet not of this world.
Whether this finding in the physical world proves to move scientific reason further along is yet to be determined. However, it does reveal that our understanding of time, essentially a man-made measure of life, cannot be used to change history; to go back in time. Perhaps we have bumped into a little glimpse of the supernatural here; God is reminding us that we see the world through the limitation of Descartes .
When we use natural measures created by man they cannot be used to create supernatural results, in this case time travel based on Einstein’s theory.
Only God sees our past in all its glory and sins, the future, and our pathetic development as his loving subjects. Which is the best we can do, but we can move closer to our faith by sidling lovingly up to what we don’t understand. Perhaps the unapproachable light of God’s presence is proving just that. Unapproachable from this natural world.
