A DVD-model for the Observable Portion
of a GGU-model Interpretation of Genesis.

(Originally, motion picture film, VCR tape, and DVD mimicking illustrations were not used to obtain the GGU or GID-models. The GGU-model is created by mathematically encoding general languages that describe sequences of physical-events. The processes that yield such event sequences can be modeled after observed human behaviors that occur trillions of times a day. It was not until after 1995 that the DVD is used to present the observable portion of a physical-event sequence. This illustration also relies upon the modern notion of computer "animation" where such procedures are employed to reproduced the images.)

In this article, I present a strict interpretation of the events depicted in Genesis 1-8. Such an interpretation closely adheres to the known meanings of the terms as understood by the original scribes and audience. This interpretation satisfies the GGU-model. At present, I believe that it is the must likely representation for a strict Genesis 1-8 account. Whether it is factual depends upon other considerations such as actual physical evidence or modes of judicious thought as described elsewhere on this website. (Note: It should be evident that details for future events may be only suggestive or entirely missing. However, it is deceptive to allow individuals during a particular Biblical time period to accept specific meanings and then to alter the meanings for a later group.)

These statements present a highly revised version of the creationary model presented in (1, pp. 199 - 207). In the world of scholarship, individuals want to apply their own expertize to Biblical notions. I reject various "scholarly" attempts to display a superior comprehension via any highly specialized analysis of Biblical terms. Few model builders seek the correct information. What do the Biblical terms signify when they were first presented? Many times the Bible clearly states that God is truthful, that He does not deceive unless He specifically tells us when or where He employs a deception for some specific purpose. Hence, he does not hid from His created the correct meanings for the terms. He does not delay the "true" meaning until some future special nuance is applied nor allow it only to be known by a chosen few. Any alterations in the common meanings or obvious nuances as understood during Biblical times would make the entire Bible untrustworthy and even contradictory and, hence, useless except for some historical information.

To preserve God's truthfulness, prior to Moses (about 1450 BC) being given the specific words to use in the Genesis description, God would most certainly make sure that His people properly understand their meanings so that His stated methodology is correctly comprehended.

What follows is based upon a strict (plain) interpretation of Genesis 1 as described in this Genesis 1 article. It presents further GGU-model (3, 3a,b) details. As mentioned, such an interpretation appears to adhere closely to the meanings of the terms as understood by the original scribe and audience.

The General Grand Unification Model (GGU-model) is a mathematical cosmogony. That is, via mathematical reasoning and interpreted mathematical symbols that represent collections of processes, it produces many distinct physical universes in many distinct ways. Various symbols are termed as "operators." In the secular model, these operators represent physical or physical-like processes. Each has a signature that signifies that intelligent agency is responsible for the production of and alterations in the behavior of every physical or physical-like system. Such characteristics yield the General Intelligent Design Model (GID-model) interpretation. As with other areas of physical science, these signatures can be ignored. One form of universe creation parallels the strict theologically interpreted creationary mode expressed in Genesis 1. This article is a further illustration of that form. Other details of the more complete Genesis account through and after the Flood are found in the referenced articles as they appear on this website.

The mathematical theory was developed first and the following is a translation of the results obtained for one collection of event sequences. (Recall that an event sequence is what produces, in a step-by-step manner via a specific realization process, real physical entities, real physical behavior, or physical-like events that are associated with real physical events or behavior.) A somewhat more detailed explanation requires the language of the GGU-model. An in-depth explanation is highly technical and complex and involves mathematical analysis using a rather new mathematical process called "Nonstandard Modeling," a portion of a model for modern set-theory. Also, the phrase "rather sudden" is used in some cases, where some entities may not appear instantaneously, but rather they occur over a "short" period of Earth-time during a specific creation-day. The underlying predicted processes that yield this DVD-model should not be considered in any great detail. The DVD-model is concerned with the visual or visual-like displayed images produced by the processes.

This DVD-model linguistically describes the presentations of mostly observable images as they are produced on a monitor via a DVD. These images correspond to written and, hence, interpreted Biblical statements. In order to comprehend the following, the statements between the [[ and ]] can be ignored if not understood. If the symbols [[[ and ]]] are used, then, for comprehension, one needs to know the definitions of more than a few technical terms in order to comprehend the technical material bound by these symbols.

[[In this article, the term "subparticle" was previously used. To prevent incorrect mental images as to models for subparticles, the term "properton" replaces the term "subparticle." Without visualizing, a properton is an entity characterized only by a list of properties. Propertons have "properties." These are not assigned some form of human visualization that is intended as a model for behavior. Such visualizations often imply incorrect information that needs to be ignored.]]

(A) Consider a modern large flat-panel TV screen and a DVD-machine.

In Genesis 1, the phrase "God said" is used and this is followed by a descriptive statement. The actual translation should be "God thought (thinks)" (thinks within Himself) as the corresponding Hebrew `âmar is translated elsewhere (Genesis 44:28). (This is a special Hebrew idiom and one would think that Biblical translators would properly express it, unless they actually wish to depict God as a sorcerer, as an entity that uses spoken incantations to create physical objects.) The description that follows the "God thought" is preparatory in character and indicates the pre-designed aspect of the GGU-model. The statement "And it was so," (Hebrew "Began to be") obviously, indicates when physical realization occurs. Rather than simply use our imagination to turn such thoughts into physical reality, the DVD illustrates this process. Insert and play any DVD, then push the pause button. The "next" portion of the DVD and the internal electronics of the DVD machine can be considered as the "thought" portion of the DVD. Indeed, the DVD does present a language that the machine will logically translate. Now push the "next" or play button. The DVD language, "its thoughts," are transformed (And it was so) into a physical reality that, at least, is an image on the monitor. The DVD presents a better presentation than the previous illustrations employed.

A DVD has a much greater capacity to reproduce since it uses much less corrective information. Via a more intense form of data compression and presentation it produces much greater clarity. The data compression employed partially models the actual objects that are a basis for the GGU-model - ultrawords. One has greater control over the step-by-step presentation of the images. However, it can only partially reproduced the GGU-model's step-by-step process. Indeed, no physical entity can fully reproduce such a process. A process that, in certain cases, cannot even be fully described via human languages; a process that cannot be experienced since it is not physically.

(B) A 3-dimensional imaging process is used. The screen is divided into two unmarked regions; a bounded region R located at the center position, and a larger 3-D region S containing R. Each image that appears on the screen represents an observable portion of a universe-wide frozen-fame. The screen is viewed only using the human observational abilities available during time period the development is depicting.

Each universe-wide frozen-frame (UWFF) (a slice of a universe at a moment in the primitive sequence that yields its development) is pre-designed. As they development, we have been given the mental capacity to recognize that the entities displayed also satisfy certain rationally stated regulations. These regulations, the physical laws, serve three purposes. They allow us, as Scripturally required, to subdue the animals and the earth. They display, in restricted form, the major signatures that all aspects of our physical existence are designed by a higher-intelligence and, from this, they indirectly reveal His eternal power and divine nature.

In the beginning, there are no visible images in either location. In Genesis 1,"ghost-like" images are used to indicate "thoughts" not physically realized. What is described is from a fixed viewpoint external to the monitor screen and the viewer uses an external sequence notion - the primitive sequence. A portion of such a step-by-step sequence does correspond to a measurable time, a portion of "observer-time." What follows is a theological interpretation for one GGU-model universe-generating scenario. A DVD is loaded into a player and begins to produce images.

(0) [[[Technically, all results come from the activation of intelligently designed ultra-logic-systems applied to intelligently designed ultra-hypotheses. A "sustaining" process that must be continually applied to designed combinations of propertons maintains all physical processes. Distinct from the reductionism methods used in (1), it is now possible to eliminate one of the ultimate ultrawords for the four general types of cosmologies, one eternal, two modified eternal, and the one that has a beginning and ending in observer-time (3). This single ultraword approach is what I now apply. All of the physical events that, in primitive sequence order, occur prior to the creation of the "stars" ("dim twinkling lights") are represented by universe-wide frozen-frames identified by an ordered set, the primitive sequence identifiers. Except in one case, it is not important to assume that these identifiers are not observer-time identifiers. For an eternal universe with no beginning in observer-time, these identifiers come sequentially prior to the non-observer primitive sequence beginning.]]]

The following is but one of various types of DVD-illustrated behaviors that satisfy, to various degrees, Biblical statements. There are other possibilities. The one presented here is a very strict (common understood) interpretation. [[As described in the Eden Model article, the Rapid-Formation Model (RFM) process is used at two moments in the development. Other important aspects of a development are the product of the participator mechanism.]]

Linguistically, the rule of reciprocation needs to be applied to Biblical statements. This rule states that comprehension of a collection of words does not come from the meaning of a single word, but that words in a statement alter their meanings relative to the "neighboring" words and conversely. (The meaning often depends upon the written context.) When this rule is applied additional comprehension is gleaned from the informational content of the collection of words employed. From this, further detailed descriptions can be properly made.

Unfortunately, since the Vulgate and except for one translation, this law cannot be properly applied to the known Bible translations. Such translations as KJV, NIV, etc. choose word meanings, for the oldest Greek, that tend to force additional doctrinal concepts upon the reader. These additional concepts were first described during the second century. The Concordant Version of the Bible (0) was specifically constructed so as to avoid such special word choices. It allows for the proper application of the law of reciprocation to Bible passages via fixed and strict meanings. Another example of the application of the rule of reciprocation is to be found in reference (3c).

Consequently, in all that follows, extensive research is employed in order to express in English the meanings of the Biblical words and phrases as they would commonly be understood during the ancient Hebrew period 1350-1600 BC (say 1450 BC). One of the most important is the Hebrew word rûach (wind, breath) - often translated as referring to the Spirit of God. The Bible describes the wind as producing many different effects. "[T]he gentle, refreshing evening breeze so well known in the Near East. . . . It can mean a strong constant wind . . . . It can also signify an extremely strong wind: . . . [and] represent a gale or tornado. . . ." (5, p. 393). And, as mentioned, it is also used to represent the Spirit of God. For ancient Hebrew comprehension as to the behavior of this Spirit, the Bible indicates that experiences with the invisible wind illustrate some of this behavior. It fact, this is exactly what occurs with aspects of the Genesis 1 creationary scenario.

There have been various interpretations as to the "beginning" of day-one. Genesis 1.1 gives an overview of what is to come next. The Hebrew translated as "heaven" can also be translated as "heavens." Without any other "number" being stated, this term when interpreted as a plural implies two items. Although the Bible does mention the third heaven and the composition of the first heaven, there is no mention as to the purpose or composition of the implied second heaven.

In this theological interpretation, I consider the second heaven as composed of various created GGU-model entities and processes that have not been defined as physical. These may carry the prefix "ultra," or "hyper" among a few other special names, and include all pre-designed ultrawords *developmental paradigms, *instruction-sets as mental constructs, propertons, info-fields and relations between entities as discussed in GGU-model processes. If compared to observer-time, the second heaven can be considered as being created during a zero-length observer-time interval between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2. Recall that pre-design signifies the thoughts that are transformed into various realities.

(0.5) (In all that follows, the term "earth" or "Earth" refers to the entire "globe" both the water and non-water part, the third planet from the Sun.) Day-one begins suddenly at the instant the second heaven is formed. (Various choices are possible.) As described in the Genesis 1 article, the waters and Earth of Genesis 1:2 are in two GGU-model special ghost-like forms that suddenly appear in R.

The form in which the ghost-like water first appears is a type of confused animation. It resembles a disjointed seeming unpredictable churning, agitating, stirring-up of the water. It seems to behave chaotically. It is a prototype that illustrates the notation that such entities such as the *instruction-sets need to be produced in order to create comprehensible behavior. If you pause the DVD and then you push the "next" button a few times you see that the images seem to correspond to no "humanly" predictable behavior. Hence, although the water appears to be structured, the chaotic behavior occurs for a few of the next "frames." The term "chaos" or "confusion" is used to indicate this in the actual Genesis 1:2 statement.

The basic LXX translation for such behavior reads, "unsightly and unfinished." But, for something to be classified as "confused" requires it to be compared with other forms. Hence, most likely, it is not any of the usual observed water experiences. That is, the behavior of water stated in Genesis 1:2 is confusing in that it does not behave as the ancient Hebrews had previously experienced it. There is no "depth" concept applied to this water region and, hence, a special water-depth should not be assumed when it appears in the DVD-model R-region. But, something else is mentioned as also being "confused."

The Bible states that "darkness was on the surface of the submerged chaos." It does not state that darkness is on the surface of the water (0, p. 41). What is the submerged chaos?

The submerged chaos is the confused, unsightly, unfinished Earth. Relative to the forthcoming Earth, it is described as a "submerged chaos." It does not resemble anything one experiences relative to the Earth of 1450 BC. It is vacant, or undistinguished. It is not a "nothing." Certainly, this idea is not foreign to the ancient Hebrews. This is modeled directly by the notion that the original Earth was not, as yet, physically realized. [[Intuitively, the term "energized" can used in place of "realized."]] Physical realization occurs when the realization operator is applied. Hence, for Genesis 1.2, the submerged Earth is in an undistinguished unrealized state.

In general, applying the rule of reciprocation, Genesis 1:2 and first part of 1:3 (3c) briefly state that there is water that should be considered as "confused" and the undistinguished unrealized earth is submerged in this water.

(1) Day-one continued. (This is a change from my previous interpretation. The next few portions are take from the Genesis 1 article.) Yet the Spirit of God is brooding over the surface of the water.

The invisible "Spirit," rûach, besides producing results similar to those of a wind, also, for comprehension, always needs to carry the additional notion of being the "origin of God's mental actions, the origin of His thoughts." This is the needed comparison with the concept as related to the human being, where, in this context, it corresponds to the origin of our mental action, our thoughts. ("Let us make man in our own image." This, of course, means aspects of God that are comparable.) I am very aware of the problem that develops when one attempts to clearly understand, via a translated word or phrase, what the early Hebrews meant relative to the human soul, nephese, (some say spirit). One idea is that, in various verses, it means an "inner self," as compared with the "outer appearance." Certainly, one major aspect of our "inner self" is our thinking, our thoughts. This human aspect is often not revealed by our appearance. Further, from the GGU-model construction, all human thoughts are known to God, there is a medium through which communication takes place, and He and other entities can mentally influence us via this medium. Whether or not this includes an "everlasting" invisible human spirit as a major part of God's creation has no affect upon the aspects of human thought as presented here.

An actual wind-like movement notion is next in the Genesis description and it corresponds to how a bird prepares its eggs so that they will hatch. The "brooding" is usually translated as "moving, vibrating" (its wings) and other such terms. However, these miss the mark since the term means doing such a procedure but with "tender loving care." Thus, with loving care, God is preparing to "hatch" His creation.

It is during this period that all of the GGU-model mechanisms and thoughts are created. Nothing is yet realized. No observer-time transpires. There is a two stage process employed - the "mental creation," the mental pre-design, and then realization. There is no need to add further to the Genesis 1 article for the first day. Various Biblically described entities first appear in a ghost-like form. For the remainder creation days, the operative phrase "it was so" triggers the realization process and on the screen the entities that previously appeared in a ghost-like form now appear as fully realized. (This may be the only model that recognizes the Scriptural placement of this statement and its relevance to the actual creation events.)

(2) Day-two. The water is divided into two parts. During this creation-day, the firmament is a portion of the GGU-model's "ultra-properton field" (a classical field concept). The field exists at all points where physical entities exist. It is from this field that the "waters above" and "waters below" emerge (are realized). At this moment in physical creation, the field between these waters can be considered as "inactive" in that, as yet, no physical entities are present. (In this illustration, no other entities are "observable.") This field is not part of a physical universe and has certain "simple" properties. Its extent can be measured by simple linear means with a beginning point at or "near" to the Earth, it can have no finite measurement as to size, or its extent need not be considered.

The "waters above," at any moment in its development, are collections of all the necessary propertons that yield actual H2O molecules in realized form. The Bible gives no information as to the "waters above." The "waters above" can act as a type of "place holder" for the objects that appear within our local environment. On the other hand, from the viewpoint of the 1450 BC observers, they can simply form types of special clouds that are not rain clouds. The Living Bible states that they are "vapors." For this presentation, special clouds, vapors or the like can be employed. The properton firmament can be considered as "hard" as well as flexible. For an expanding universe, if such actually exists, it is this field that "expands" or even accelerates, and from which the expansion of a physical universe follows. [[Todays notion of dark energy need not be the cause of any acceleration in the separation of gravitationally bounded physical entities.]]

Such a firmament is predicted by the GGU-model and has properties that correspond to the Biblically described properties, even to the Hebrew notion of "for ever and ever" as in Psalm 148. This field is an interface between the first heaven and the second heaven. It can be conceived of as having two three-dimensional faces. One face forms the foundation for the physical world and the second face is connected to the "covirtual world" (i.e. the substratum or background universe or part of the second heaven). It is significant to note that all physical objects would be "in" the firmament.

Depending upon the cosmology that begins when God "cursed the ground," region S displays different behaviors. This cosmology is formed by application of a GGU-model scheme and rapid-formation. In general, all known cosmologies, with any necessary alterations, are GGU-model predicted possibilities. Many such cosmologies can be DVD illustrated, including multi-universe cosmologies. The Bible does not give any details as to how the eternal Eden cosmology or the present day cosmology develops. It does give a few statements as to purposes for their physical existence. If our present universe is an expanding cosmology, which appears to correspond to most of today's accepted cosmological indirect evidence, then this is accomplished via firmament properties. There are valid cosmologies that do not include such an expansion.

Some have suggested that the apparent separation of galactic material corresponds to Biblical "stretching" statements. But, there are others that claim there is no Biblical suggestion that a stretching is occurring. The GGU-model properton field allows for such expansion at any moment during the development of a cosmology and the Biblical characteristics of this "firmament" do not change. Indeed, there can be a flowing pattern from a specific location outwards toward the outer edge of S. Depending upon the cosmology selected, this outward flow could "appear," relative to a view external to the monitor, to take place starting at a point at the Earth or within or "near to" its local environment. Moreover, the rapid-formation model, if employed for a cosmology, indicates that such a cosmology, as it forms, can appear to encircle the Earth and its local environment. This can also be the case for the Eden cosmology. (This type of encircling has some Biblical support.)

As shown in (2, p. 68), the basic "metric" that cosmologist use that includes such an expansion can be completely derived by considering only two light propagation properties and a substratum expansion speed. If viewed from "inside" a soon to be produced universe, the universe can be considered as "on" the firmament although, as mentioned, "in" the firmament is also a significant way to describe the relation.

(3) Day-three. The R-region's waters "below" appear in distinct regions in R and the "dry" land suddenly appears in mature or functional form. That is, a portion of the waters below are transformed into or replaced by the dry earth. Various observed water events can, indeed, appear as if land is emerging from the water. Although the ancient Hebrews do not need to known why it happens, when the Mediterranean tide is viewed from say Joppa (Tel Yafo, Jaffa), submerged land is uncovered. It can be observed to emerge. "Look, see how that piece of land seems to just come out of the water." The remaining water, as stated, forms the Earth's seas.

The objects described in Genesis 1: 11-12 then appear in mature or functional form (And it was so). Hence, the original Earth is realized in a mature form by application of the realization operator. When the universe is created, it is noticed that the waters and Earth in R are slowly rotating relative to a stationary firmament. Using "hour" units, this measure is a 24-hour rotation period. [[The properton field for the Eden cosmology need have no "motion" characteristic.]] In this article, the result of these R-region formations is termed as the "original pre-Fall Earth" (with its local environment).

(It is during day-three that the original pre-Fall Earth is physically realized. And, significantly, it is during day-three that vegetation such as grass, herbs, fruit trees, etc. appear. Other biological entities appear in mature or functional form during day-five and day-six. Once again these items are first in covirtual (pre-designed) form and then the forms are activated. To be consistent with 1450 BC physical observations, to preserve God's statements as presenting truth, the "sudden" formation can actually come about through application of the RFM. I mentioned at this point, that some distort the intended Biblical meaning, by claiming that there is a gap in day-one where a more extensive earth is formed over many "years." This completely alters the logical implications that the sequence of creation-days is trying to convey. God creates a very special original Earth that is distinct from any other such object that may appear in other created external universe. Those that adhere to such a gap theory are altering what the Biblical statements clearly imply. Using this tactic, they fit their theory to an altered Bible. This tactic I do not apply.)

(3.5) First part of day-four. During this creation-day, at the least, the Sun and Moon appear in R in mature or functional form and the day-three entities continue to develop in R relative to "rotation-time." Within the Bible "water" is used as a transitional medium for certain significant physical and spiritual changes. It is possible but definitely not required that under one interpretation the "waters above" are transformed into these two and probably other local environment objects. This can correspond to the transformation concept relative to the formation of the Earth if that notion is accepted by the ancient Hebrews. A replacement notion is also possible if so accepted. But, we apparently cannot have definite knowledge as to the meaning of the phrase "waters above." By implication, day-four can also be when other solar system entities are formed. The DVD images neither indicate, in any manner, how the sunlight is generated nor any detailed aspects of the Sun or Moon or solar system entity construction.

(3.5-4 and additional relative information.) After the basic contents of the Earth, its local environment and the original exterior universe are produced, Adam and Eve are created. They and Eden appear, as described, in subsequent DVD images. The term Eden is not simply a place, but it is a basic concept as well. The arguments that there is no animal physical death are compelling. Due to this feature, it is necessary that physical entities such as the Sun, Moon and "stars" (the observed "dim twinkling lights") be created as "everlasting" entities as represented by an unbounded *developmental paradigm. (Under the rule for observation the dim twinkling lights is only what appears on the screen.) Perceived physical law processes do not produced any member of the sequentially displayed event sequence. It is rather trivial to display for an appropriate collection of event sequences, {E(i)}, these entities as producing their necessary products without any deterioration in output. Indeed, as visually displayed, all other appropriate physical entities can appear within members of each event sequence. During the time of the pre-Fall period, any observed physical regulations that are verified by sequential members of an {E(i)} are, obviously, distinct from those observed today.

The firmament is the activated portion of the properton field, which is only physical-like not physical. It is the object from which all physical entities emerge. From the physical-like viewpoint, it is infinitely dense. It is viewed when first created as being "unfolded" like a curtain, as mentioned in Isaiah 40:22, rather than being stretched out like an elastic body. As a curtain or tent unfolds it covers an increasingly larger and larger region. This is the "heaven," the expanse, from which all other material aspects of the universe emerge. Various authors tend to call such an expanse "space" but fail to define "space" as produced by any physical-like entity although they claim that it may "expand." This expanding space carries along with it material aspects of the universe. Or, the space itself need not expand but rather physical entities are simply separating one from another due to additional field properties. So, does the universe of today expand as a whole or are material movements all caused by other physical processes?

There are differences in interpretations as to the meanings of the Biblical terms dealing with being "stretched out." Does the Biblical notion mean an actual "stretching" like a piece of elastic material or does it mean to lay out or to unfold a fixed expanse? Some authors state that the phrase "like a curtain" or "like a tent" means that the expanse or universe does not stretch since a curtain or tent does not stretch.

The problem is with the use of the term "like" or phrase "as a" and the fact that for these notions, the term "curtain" and "tent," are similes. Hence, the expanse most be different in the main from these material objects and, yet, have a few similar properties. Observationally, the drawing of a curtain can, indeed, appear as an elastic-like stretching. The notion of stretching out a "tent" as used in say Isaiah 40.22 is more relative to the "dwelling in" or "living in" notion than the laying out of such a material object. Since there is some uncertainty, this is why the present illustration is tentative in character. Many years ago I showed how a universe-wide time-fracture can completely alter the development of a universe and we could not know via any physical means "what came before" this alteration. (See added references (A) and (B).)

Relative to some creationary cosmologies, there is a contradiction in their basic construction. As stated, relative to the created Earth, the strict Biblical interpretation used by most creationists requires a pre-Fall Eden to exist. In [4] relative to the created world prior to the Fall, there was "no hunger, no struggle for existence, no suffering, and certainly no death of animal or human life anywhere in God's perfect creation (plant "life," created as food for men and animals, does not "die" in the Biblical sense.)"

Via trivial implication, as stated, this everlasting form of a perfect life as Biblically described could not rationally occur unless, at least, the created Sun, Moon and the stars are everlasting. This requires that the physical aspects of these entities as accepted by most creationists are incorrectly stated. The regulations that some creationists claim satisfy the original creationary scenario relative to the Sun, Moon and stars, do not satisfy the requirement that the original created entities exist in their described created state for an eternity.

However, the GGU-model is not dependent upon any form of humanly comprehensible physical regulations. Physical scientist are trained to conclude that the universe-wide frozen-frames that sequentially follow from a specific one are produced by application of physical laws. It is often difficult for them to understand that, for the GGU-model, this is NOT the case.

In order not to be considered as an unstated deception relative to the external universe, the Eden cosmology is formed by rapid-formation over a miniscule period of Earth-time during day-four rather than assuming in-transit information (C). The DVD screen view is that region R appears in suspended animation and the Eden cosmology rapidly forms about it. When rapid-formation ceases, the R-region then develops in concert with the all that has been previously created.

Biblically, we can have no knowledge as to the original Eden cosmology that is rapidly formed so as to produce the exterior star-field. The Bible gives no actual information as to methodology. In order to strongly interpret Rom. 1:20, I, at present, consider the original eternal universe to be a type-2 universe. That is, from the moment "NOW," it has a physical beginning in the past but no physical ending in the future. If it is infinite both in "size" and "material," then this certainly would indicate the vast "power" and divine character of God.

Biblically, we are allowed to do ordinary common forms of logical deduction. The attributes of God are described throughout the Bible, via various verses, and they compare God's attributes with those of humanity. They indicate things the God can do that we cannot. In all cases, the appropriate comparable attributes are exceptionally "greater than" those of His created. Relative to mental processes much Scripture indicates this.

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways, my thoughts than your thoughts" (Isaiah 55:8-9). (Also Job 33:12 and Psalm 147:5.) In Genesis 12:8 and 3:11-13, the way that the Garden of Eden is described and God's reaction to Adam and Eve's sin clearly imply the eternal nature of Eden, the pre-Fall Earth (LE) (LE = local environment) and, necessarily, that Adam and Even would not physically die.

Thus, of great Biblical significant is that, as stated, prior to the Fall there is no human physical death and the Sun, Moon, the local environment as well as the "stars" are originally designed to be eternal. For the DVD view, only stars as visibly perceived are displayed in region S. The information that we can glean from physical observation after the Fall does indicate that there needed to be distinctly different pre-Fall behavior for specific physical-systems. Indeed, this can hold for the eternal cosmology and what may be a paradox, like the Obler paradox, probably has no meaning for the eternal pre-Fall cosmology.

We are told that "He counts the stars and calls them by name. How great he is! His power is absolute! His understanding unlimited" (Psalms 147:4-5 (LB)). As indicated for this to be an actual Divine attribute it must be a "greater" ability than that possessed by humanity. However, if Adam and Eve had not sinned, then they can conceptually count any finite number of stars. Technically, the GGU-model physical-system "numbers" He uses to count things can essentially differ from what we can use only if the material entities form an infinite set. Thus by simple Biblical implication His created original universe can be deductively considered as composed of infinity many physical entities. As will be discussed later, this does not mean that the universe that we perceive today needs satisfy this probable pre-Fall behavior.

To correspond to the "stamped-out" firmament requirement, there is a heat signature that matches this raqa notion. Under this scenario, this DVD view, as observed today, satisfies various regulations we can comprehend and that satisfy an "organizing " of the exterior universe. This also corresponds to a remarkable intelligent design. This is a basic reason why such a mode of formation is presented so, that, even today, we will be without an excuse. So that, even today, physical science cannot escape from His higher-intelligence attribute. Indeed, this is even more so after the Fall. Since the Eden cosmology rapid-formation process ends at a specific moment in its development and then the pre-Fall Earth (LE) develop in a manner consistent with this cosmology, then the contrasting physical behavior of today clearly indicates the sustaining power of a higher-intelligence.

(5) All the remaining creation-day entities appear in mature or functional form in R. The Bible states in Genesis 2:2 that God ceased all His work after day-six. The notions of "ceases" and "work" must be included in this model. But, from what "work" does He cease? It is His creationary work. This model specifies that God's creationary work includes the creation of all thoughts, the pre-designs, the constituents and all collections of event sequences necessary for His purposes. To sustain His creation, He does not do "creationary" work. Further, what has occurred and is continuing to occur can be described as "the transforming of thoughts into various reality." I consider the "knowledge of" physical reality as equivalent to the actual physical reality in this higher-intelligence case and this corresponds to the final intelligently designed and, hence, created process "St." [[Recall that the GGU-model processes also model Heb. 1:3, where the notion of "sustained" means, at least, a mentally spoken word used to reproduce in a step-by-step manner the development of a physical universe.]]

The model satisfies the requirement that God has knowledge of all past, present and future events. In review, each alteration in the created universe that He allows is created in the form of covirtual event sequences. Under the strict verb form "to create," it is by means of His created thoughts that various realities are produced. What is presented here is an analogue model "for behavior." It may be the only way that we can otherwise comprehend God's creationary activities.

"Cursed is the ground because of you" (Genesis 3:17). This is followed by an alteration in the physical existence of Adam and Eve. When the Fall of humanity occurs, it is then when physical entities acquire a "death" feature. It is the second application of the RFM that strongly yields the next steps in an event sequence. (For a general description, see The Eden Model.) What is observed is the DVD-image for event E(i) immediately prior to the moment the "Curse" is announced. The DVD-image for the next universe-wide frozen-frame E'(α + 1) is essentially the same as E(i). (The value of α depends upon the actual post-Fall external cosmology produced.) However, from the RFM, it is actually a frozen-frame from an entirely different pre-designed event sequence. Significantly, this pre-designed rapid-formation occurs over an exceptionally small observer time interval and includes an earth that at first matches the earth in E'(α). (The actual identifier for the event producing universe-wide frozen-frame is (α,λ) and the α depends upon th cosmology being formed.) However, it, of course, now rather quickly exhibits God's description and slowly begins to corresponds to the deteriorating features of the rapidly formed external universe. The pre-designed universe-wide frozen-frame images for the continued development of these entities satisfy describable physical laws that we can comprehend. They continue to provide us with the knowledge that allows us to subdue the earth.

In accordance with Genesis 3:23, Eden-styled physical behavior subsides but this is not immediately observed. Many Bibles describe how God restricts Adam and Eve at the Fall by stating that "After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life." (Genesis 3:24) However, the Literal states this in two disjoint sentences. The first sentence is, "And He is driving out the human, and is causing him to tabernacle at the east of the garden of Eden." The second sentence reads "And He set the cherubim, and a flaming sword turning itself, to keep the way of the tree of the living." The phrase "at the east side," coupled with this separation, the "turning itself" and "tree of living," a metaphor for eternal life, signify that all aspects of the eternal existence of the Eden portion of the Eden model are completely removed.

Our knowledge that such a place as pre-Fall Eden existed and that there is a corresponding Eden cosmology comes only from the Bible. No matter how our ability to observe the behavior of the universe external to our local environment increases, there will be no indication from these observations that the Eden behavior existed. This does not mean that we cannot have knowledge nor evidence as to what physically existed after the Fall and prior to the Flood. The entire cosmology as we observe it today displays a remarkable rational consistency.

In summary, the information in the electromagnetic radiation and that is acquired from the particles we gather and analyze today do not indicate the actual events that occurred throughout the universe during the pre-Fall portion of the Eden Model. The Bible gives the necessary events that needed to occur cosmologically during that time period. The information in such a present day pre-designed event sequence does exist as a Divine mental construct. It is not a form of deception but rather serves a definite purpose. It displays the divinity and power of the mind of God. Further, the physical aspects of the present day cosmology and the Biblical described pre-Fall world strongly imply that originally humankind was created to inhabit a very special universe. This and possible post-Fall through pre-Flood evidence are strong reminders of what we have lost due to Adam and Eve's behavior and that we now exist in a historically very hostile and destructive environment.

Our present universe is composed of degenerating physical entities via probabilistic behavior and, for biological entities, the additional feature of biological micro-mutation occurs. If evidence indicates, the cosmology which now governs our existence can have an expansion property that implies that our universe is headed towards "heat death." Thus, after the Fall, the pre-design that is a result of the Adam and Eve's behavior can certainly include a deteriorating universe that is satisfied by the statistical aspects of quantum theory.

Each universal-wide frozen-frame comes about via other pre-designed cosmologies that He mentally creates so as to correspond to what is necessary to correlate to human choice. This is an additional feature of the required participator universe. This is an important feature that, at present, only the GGU-model solves. Today, one of the necessary human choices is atheism. The Eden Model allows for this choice.

At each moment of observer-time when any aspect of human behavior occurs, an appropriate universe-wide frozen-frame from a pre-designed universe is realized. But, importantly, this universe-wide frozen-frame is a member of an event sequence that includes all of the post-Fall corresponding pre-design and realized events. This cumulative event sequence, in its original covirtual form, does not cease to exist. I point out that the notion of a "spatial morphing border" as discussed (1, p. 178) is eliminated.

Throughout the continued DVD illustrations living organisms develop in what appears to be various forms. All aspects of these variations are pre-designed. As shown on this website, claimed "random" alterations are actually "mindom" alterations in that they can satisfy probabilistic statements but no actual random behavior leads to these variations. I use a "three-world" approach to biological variation. Type-one biological "kinds" prior to the Fall are very narrow in scope. In general, they are those entities that are originally designed to physical procreate. The phrase "after its kind" is used ten times in Genesis 1. Some consider the somewhat vague notion that a "kind" is a category that indicates a "common ancestry." There is no detailed Biblical definition for this term. Indeed, consistent with the original exhibited physical laws for the Earth, there are no "evolutionary" styled variations in the designs from their original formation until the Fall.

After the Fall and through the Flood, the type-one kinds are expanded to allow for additional variations within these kinds - the type-two kinds. These variations now allow for physical death. After the Flood, the kinds continue to correspond to the pairs that entered the Ark. Under additional physical regulations, behavior within these kinds is again expanded - the type-three kinds - so as to correspond to "some" of the pre-designed variations that occur for other possible life-forms discussed in my "Final Personal Statement." However, no kind category that was on the Ark will loose, via unaided physical processes, its identifying features.

Under no circumstances do I accept that entities are to be classified as members of a particular kind based only upon assumed non-biblical hypotheses. This is contrary to the scientific method. Hypotheses are indirectly verified if there is a preponderance of actual evidence that satisfies their predictions. Such a verification is not an absolute test that the hypotheses are fact. Further, adding evidence that does not actually exist because it conforms to a theory and stating that this verifies a theory is specifically forbidden not only by the scientific method but also by the rules of logic.

(6) After the Fall of man, as verified by Genesis 3:14-19, and as mentioned, physical laws that appear to govern region R and we can use for predictions are altered.

(7) Things continue in this fashion until the Flood.

For this creation scenario, the mathematical model states that there are many other unrealized universes that correspond to the realized external-universe. This is required by the alterations necessitated by human participator actions. Within these unrealized universes are various R-type regions, the R′-regions, that correspond in their entirety to the governing processes that yield the images in S. These R′-regions are termed "ancient earths with their local environment." These R′-regions actually exist during rapid-formation. They no longer exist when rapid-formation ceases. Then in succeeding events, the R-regions exists but now slowly displays finite life spans. (An ancient earth serves a specific purpose and it corresponds to a basic Biblical concept. This is discussed in my other belief statements.) Further, the event sequences can include all other Biblical alterations in universe behavior. [[When the term "all" or "every" is used it is not related to physical "fact" unless it is qualified. To what collection does the word refer? Often the collection is supposed to be understood by the reader. The term as used in Genesis 1 - 8 relative to biological entities is, for me, clearly restricted to the original pre-Fall Flood Earth (LE). Biological type entities that God may have designed for the external universe, and this is not prohibited, for consistency are confined to the third-type of kind category. But, the original kinds category is not altered. For example, the kinds category that started with Adam and Eve does not trace back to some other distinct kinds category.]]

After day-four, the external universe, with region R, are members of a library of universes as discussed in (1 p. 156). This is the "library" that models participator alterations. In this application of the GGU-model, this library includes all participator alterations, if any. Consistent with the physical laws we observe today and for comprehension, this library also includes universes with various physical-system combinations of entities within the R-region and entities within the other R′-regions

There are various Flood models that have been purposed. Many of these Flood models satisfy the physical laws, at least partially, that are associated with the selected external universe. They are all GGU-model possibilities. In Genesis 6:13, God states that He will not only destroy the life on the land but also ruin (destroy) the "earth." One model states that, via the participator process, during the Flood itself the original Earth and its local environment are "replaced" with the images from a different DVD in the library with the following features. This is the applied "cast off" feature as the term is translated in Am 1:11. (I discuss, in my last personal statement, Biblical implications that imply these features. Further, I discuss other methods used within creationary science to achieve the Flood altered earth of today.)

For my Flood model, an after-the-Flood event sequence yields material evidence that there is a mingling of evidence from the original pre-Flood Earth with its local environment and that of an ancient earth with its local environment. This evidence verifies that the pre-Flood and the Flood itself existed. Rather obvious comparatively evidence may be found mingled or even intertwined with "ancient" evidence at the same location. For this model, the Bible implies that our current earth was physically realized about 4500 years ago in terms of earth rotation time.

After the Flood and except for "miraculous events," the current earth with its local environment continues to develop in concert with the development occurring in S. This DVD illustration satisfies Romans 1:20. It, at the least, indicates God's exceptional creationary power, His higher-intelligence and His knowledge of the past, present and future. [[Recall that, theologically, the GGU-model processes can be defined as created processes that transform God's "thoughts" into physical reality.]]

In summary, what is the Biblical purpose for the detailed information we observe today in the starlight? Relative to the Eden Model, it is not to foster some scientific discipline. Although, it shows a remarkable rational consistency this is not its major purpose. The Eden Model completely satisfies Rom. 1:20. What we are observing is the divinity and power of the mind of God and He is truthful in what He states. This is the true significance of the information we glean from starlight. This fact is independent from whether this information displays all of our previous modes of physical existence. The entire Eden Model corresponds to the absolute reality of being created, of being pre-designed, by the mind of God. All else pales when compared to this fact.

For both technical and Biblical verifications that justify this DVD illustration, please begin with this Personal Statement. These personal statements should help to answer many Biblical and physical-science related questions.
