The Science of God
By Tina Erwin

There are those who can easily separate the spiritual world from the world of science. Many people believe that science has absolutely nothing to do with God, that God is somehow neatly separated from the world of logic and fact. However, one has only to study the world of nature to see the hand of God in every single element that is life itself.

God is the first scientist, mathematician, chemist, geologist, astrophysicists, psychologist, sociologist, musician, biologist, physician and metaphysician. God is all science, all math, and all elements of the humanities, because God is ultimately, all of everything.

The truest metaphysician—one who studies that which is beyond known physics—understands that to begin to know God, you have to know science. God and science are one. You can no more separate them than you can separate the night from the day. The irony is that the very fact that human beings do not “know it all” proves that there is a vast universe of knowledge that was/is divinely inspired. Inspiration literally comes from that spark of divine connection that allows us a peek at the larger picture. But can we prove to those diehard separatists that there is only the light of the Divine in the study of the “hard” sciences? Of course we can!

Ultimately, everything in all of life is a function of a mathematical formula. Every single thing that exists is part of a larger [math] pattern. As an example, look at any fern leaf as it is all curled up, or a pine cone spiral, a sunflower seed pattern, a chambered nautilus, a humble snail shell, a pyramid, and the Milky Way galaxy to name just a few. What they all have in common is the following mathematical formula: 1+ 1+ 2+ 3+ 5+ 8+ 13+ 21. This is called the Fibonacci sequence or number. This purely mathematical formula, this elegant element of essential science, exists throughout the Universe. How is this possible if not divinely inspired?

Nautlis SpiralAll existence is math, from the frequencies of light, color, sound, and smell to the densities of minerals, the math of plants, and the perspectives of literally moving through the air from one point to another. Look around you. Every single thing is math and can be described by some type of math formula. That discipline, that consistency, that perfection, is ultimately Divine.

What about human beings? What causes the human heart to beat for the first time? Where does the energy come from, allowing that to happen? How can the human body be one astounding math and science experiment? How can the human brain balance the requirements to understand complex math calculations as well as the emotional tenderness required to love another human being? How do we know how to do that? Is human and animal instinct just another word for math programming—with an emotional heart? What is the math of emotion?

What of architecture? Isn’t architecture the mathematical inspiration to energetically shape space? The more mathematically balanced the space, the better we each can feel, physically and emotionally.

How can it be that energy—no matter what its form—can neither be created nor destroyed? Why is it utterly impossible to give a scientific definition of energy itself? Even the United States Navy, in their training classes, explains that energy is not definable by itself. Energy is explainable only by how it relates to everything else. Perhaps energy is only as definable as God is definable, and we are all still working on that.

As we each seek to take greater steps on our spiritual path, perhaps it is a good idea to look for the science in our spiritual moments, the math in the mundane elements of our days and the inspired ideals of our own individuality. We are all God inspired, mathematically perfect science projects. Perhaps looking at life that way will offer a new spiritually scientific perspective on the way we view even life itself.

Q) “[…Matter then would be the offspring of energy and not the parent, as is often thought.]" Is this correctly stated?
A) Correctly stated, and just what happens in the human organism.

Do Animals Reincarnate?

Do Animals Reincarnate?
By Ann Jaffin

Mona- dog-LionThe Cayce readings seem to tell us that animals may travel with us from one lifetime to another. Although there is not much information about this subject in the readings, what is there is fascinating. Most of what we find about the reincarnation of animals in the Cayce readings, we owe to Mrs. 268. When this lady asked about her past-life relationship with her niece, Cayce told her that they had been together in a Roman experience. The woman then asked about a possible past life with her little dog, Mona. Cayce calmly replied, “In the same experience.” Wanting to be certain that she understood, she asked, “In the Roman?” Cayce confirmed it and replied, “The Roman!” She followed up by asking, “Was she a dog then? Doubtlessly to the amazement of all, Cayce said that the dog had been “a lion!” (268-3)

A week later, Mrs. 268 got a reading for her husband and asked about his past relationship to Mona.

(Q) What relation is he to the little dog Mona?
(A) He fought with the body in the Roman experience.

(Q) What was Mona then?
(A) The lioness that fought with the entity, and with those that destroyed many that the entity was then seeking to aid. (280-1)

This information must have generated quite a bit of interest because other family members also asked about Mona in their readings. The woman’s niece asked:

(Q) Will Mona always be a dog?
(A) That depends upon the environ and the surroundings. No. (405-1)

Mrs. 268’s nephew also got a reading and asked about Mona.

(Q) Could a life reading be obtained through these sources for Aunt [268]’s little dog Mona?
(A) May be. As to WHAT it may be is different! It may not be understood, unless you learn dog language! (406-1)

As fascinating as all of this is, in some respects it raises more questions than it answers. Nevertheless, what it tells us adds a new dimension to our understanding not only of reincarnation but of life. The first surprise is that, according to Cayce, Mona reincarnated! She lived in Roman times and she came back in twentieth-century America. That is surprising enough. But secondly, the reading also says that Mona changed form. Although she remained an animal, she had presumably progressed from being a dangerous animal of prey to being a pet. How or why this change occurred we are not told. She remained female but reincarnated in a much smaller body. The husband’s reading provides some clarification that in Rome as a lioness, Mona had fought with him and others that he was trying to help. This certainly sounds like the persecution of Christians, possibly in the Coliseum.

In the niece’s reading, we continue to receive startling information about how animals reincarnate. This girl asked a wonderful question about whether Mona would always be a dog. After stating that this depends on the environment and the surroundings, Cayce said, “No,” that Mona would not always be a dog. Since there is no more information on Mona’s other lifetimes or whether or not animals experience interplanetary sojourns between Earth lives like we do, we can only speculate about these possibilities. How this transformation occurred from wild beast to household pet is not explained but I think that this is in keeping with Cayce’s philosophy of growth and progress for all.

The nephew also asked a clever question in his reading and Cayce gave another illuminating response. When the boy asked about the possibility of getting a life reading for Mona, Cayce said that although it could be done, no one would understand it unless they learned dog language clearly implying that dog language exists. Needless to say, no one pursued this idea any further.

In a stunning karmic “coincidence,” Ann and her husband discovered that 20 Cayce readings were given for their extended family. Her book, "Past Lives and Present Karma," published by A.R.E. Press, is a comprehensive study of reincarnation. Retired from the Federal Government, Ann has a Masters Degree in Family and Community Development from the University of Maryland.
