The Postulates 1 – 5 (old)

Reference: The Postulates 1 – 5

These postulates are being developed from the subject clearing of Buddhism, Scientology and philosophy in general. This is a work in progress. Constructive criticism is welcome.


POSTULATE # 1: The universe includes everything whether physical, spiritual, real, imaginary, postulated or speculated.

COROLLARY: The universe includes all that we experience physically, mentally and spiritually.

The word UNIVERSE is derived from a Latin word that meant “entire, all, literally, turned into one”.

Science treats universe as if it is just physical. The “physical universe” is a limited concept. It is not the whole truth. It is just the physical aspect of something bigger. That something bigger also has a spiritual aspect. We are a part of that something bigger, which we may simply call the “universe”. Multiverses are a speculative hypothesis and, therefore, part of this overall concept of universe.

Religion treats God as creator of the physical world and the life on it. But the concept of God is based on human experience and human explanation for the presence of this universe. Therefore, God is also part of this universe.

Nothing is excluded from this concept of an overall universe.


POSTULATE # 2: The basic substance of the universe is energy, which is animated by an innate impulse.

COROLLARY: Everything physical, spiritual, real, imaginary, postulated or considered is made of energy. The innate impulse is evident in the propagation of light.

The innate impulse is expressed through energy that constitutes everything in this universe. We see this as intrinsic motion of electromagnetic radiation, quantum fields and particles, and the electrons in an atom. At the physical level we have the agitation of gas molecules, and the Brownian motion, which occurs by itself without any external force.

The innate impulse is expressed also through the more complex activities of life, such as, self-animation, reaction and thinking. All human considerations, postulates, and opinions are made of thought energy animated by the same innate impulse of the universe. These life activities may be termed spiritual, but they are only a much more complex variety of intrinsic motions that we observe at physical level.


POSTULATE # 3: Energy condenses from thought to electromagnetic radiation to material objects.

COROLLARY: The innate impulse of energy condenses from considerations to flow to structure.

Thought is like space. It envelopes everything. This is the nature of energy at the level of thought and considerations. There is continuity of medium at this level. Thought condenses into electromagnetic radiation and gains the property of flow. This happen in the living body.

Electromagnetic radiation is still a continuum and it flows like a fluid; the only difference is that it is not made up of atomic particles. It can thicken up (become more viscous) with increasing frequency from a very thin state to a very thick state. The quantum does not refer to a particle but to a certain “viscosity” of energy. As energy becomes more viscous it appears increasingly rigid and discrete against a thinner background.

The highest viscosity of energy appears as the solidity of matter. The condensation of energy from fluid to matter may be seen inside an atom. Matter has structure, which we see in all material forms around us.


POSTULATE # 4: Space describes the extents of energy. “Empty space” is empty of matter but not empty of energy.

COROLLARY: Space contracts as the energy filling that space condenses.

COROLLARY: Different parts of the universe consist of spaces of different contractions, but space forms a continuum.

Currently, “empty space” is treated the same way as space filled with matter. Matter is rigid and discrete, as defined by its extents. The word “rigid” is used in the sense opposite to “flexible” meaning “firmly fixed or set”. And the word “discrete” is used in the sense opposite to “continuous” meaning “apart or detached from others; separate; distinct”. The dimensions of matter are depicted as rigid by Euclidian geometry. They are interpreted in terms of units that are fixed and discrete. These same fixed and discrete units are then applied to “empty space”.

But we cannot treat “empty space” with the same discrete units that are used for space filled with matter. Space that is empty of matter, is not empty of energy. Space expands as matter converts to energy. Space filled with energy should not be defined by the rigidity and discreteness of the dimensions of matter (as we do currently), but by the flexibility and continuity of the dimensions of energy as represented by wavelengths. It should take into account the contraction of space as energy condenses.


POSTULATE # 5: Time describes the duration of energy. The state of absolute rest is defined by infinite duration at a location in space. Lesser durations have motion.

COROLLARY: The duration of the universe in infinite. It is simply there. It has neither beginning nor end.

COROLLARY: The duration of matter forms a very narrow band in which we observe all the motion of matter. Similarly, the duration of electromagnetic radiation forms another narrow band in which motion varies per the frequency of energy. The motion in this band, however, is identified only as the ‘speed of light’ because the differences are too small to be perceived.

The total energy of the universe is always constant per the Law of conservation. Therefore, this energy, or the universe, is always there. It has neither a beginning nor an end. As a result, the universe provides a background of infinite duration or ‘absolute rest’. This was approximated by Newton as the background of stars in the sky. Against this background, the finite durations can be compared with each other. You can see which event lasted longer than another event. This comparison provides a relative measure of Time.

Our sense of time is tuned to the duration of matter. Being in the band of matter we can appreciate the differences among motions of matter. But from the same token we cannot appreciate the differences among motions of electromagnetic radiation because radiation forms a band very far away from the band of matter. To appreciate those differences, our sense of time needs to be tuned to the very small duration of electromagnetic radiation.

    According to POSTULATE #1, the concept of “God” represents a dimension deep within the universe. The dimensions that are on the surface of the universe are addressed by PHYSICS. The deeper dimensions are addressed by METAPHYSICS. But metaphysics addresses many layers below the surface.

    Physics has been exploring the atom, the electromagnetic radiation and the space over the last century. It needs to dive into a deeper exploration. This requires looking into metaphysics “scientifically”.

    METAPHYSICS is concerned with the fundamental nature of existence and reality. It studies the relationship between mind and matter, between substance and attribute, and between potentiality and actuality. The other dimensions beyond the surface of the universe are categorized broadly as epistemology, logic, and ethics. For now, we shall address them, as needed, under the broad category of metaphysics.

    When we look at the interface between physics and metaphysics, the first question arises, “What is the fundamental substance of this universe?” Physics has yet to answer this question. This takes us to POSTULATE # 2.

    When it comes to the universe, theories abound in physics without definitive measurements. “Does the universe have boundaries?” “Does it have a beginning?” “What are Space and Time?” Physics has no definite answers to these questions. This is because physics has a very limited concept of the universe.

    To answer these questions, we have to use a “scientific method” that is comparable to the scale of the universe. Simple human logic won’t do. Fundamentally, logic is a study of consistency, harmony and continuity. To be rational, the universe must be consistent, harmonious and continuous with itself. No arbitrariness can be tolerated. When a theory about the universe contains inconsistency, disharmony or discontinuity, it requires investigation for its resolution.

    POSTULATE #1 resolves the inconsistency of the limited view of the universe that physics holds.
