Universe as the Interaction of Its Parts with Limitations

Article excerpt

Universe contains animate and inanimate objects that in a dynamic manner constitute creation. Dynamic condition of creation indicates that constituent parts of universe are not static and unchanging but are subject to change within the context of limitations. Limitations include, for instance: need, want, power, shortcoming, ability, senility, debility, disease, pain, suffering, and struggle for existence. Constituent parts of creation include time, space, matter, genome, elements, power, force, freedom, liberty, interrelation, interaction, possibility, and potentiality or capability to change within a certain extent of limitations. Variable combinations of these constituent parts produce existence and what are seen in universe. Details of many things in universe, such as planets and creator are unknown to the human being. Certain things, for instance creation on earth are partially but not completely known to the human being. There are some unanswered questions about the following: universe, creation, animate and inanimate objects, instinct, genome, limitation, human understanding, knowledge, methods, goals, causes, effects, and the reality of objects in the context of their interactions and interrelations. What is partially known to the human being is that everything in universe is subject to limitations of diverse sorts that must be reduced, overcome or conquered by different methods for some ends that may be purposeful, purposeless, useful, useless, or adverse. What is known to the human being is the fact that nothing even stone is static but is in a state of eternal change if not rapidly but slowly in periods of years or millions and billions of years. Certain things such as water may change rapidly to ice or vapor with change of temperature.

Causes of change are diverse in the sphere of human volition, and in the external world related, for instance, to causes, effects, interactions, and limitations. For human beings, certain changes may be voluntary and designed for some purpose, such as building a house or a monument. Certain changes related to human beings may be involuntary but instinctively determined, such as blood circulation, digestion, and functions of other internal bodily organs as well as changes brought about by instinct and genome. Changes brought about by movements and functions of limbs or of external bodily organs, as well as actions, are by volition, judgment, motivation, emotion, passion, reason, choice, rationalization, and decision.

Human beings bring about changes by motivation caused by reason, passion, emotion, judgment, choice, decision, and limitations. Human limitations include: need, want, desire, passion, reason, ability, rationality, irrationality, emotion, senility, debility, disease, and shortcomings such as poverty, or a combination of them. These factors may be designated as some of human limitations that can lead to life-problems, suffering, pain, and misery or unhappiness. Limitations lead to and constitute unconquered human problems that molest the human being from birth to death. Human beings constantly strive by diverse means and methods to reduce, overcome, or conquer limitations in order to attain tranquility, relief, harmony and happiness. This is the purpose of human life that created such methods and systems as civilization, religion, magic, morality, legality, myth, philosophy, science, discovery, invention, nation, society, communication, war, crime, and any method expected to reduce limitations. Some of these methods, such as crime and war may lead to the aggravation of limitations instead of resolution.

II

In the case of animate but non-human creatures, factors of change and action or function are mainly involuntary because they are determined by instinct, genome, and migration instead of mental function as in human beings. Instinct and genome possess methods to secure functions of bodily organs, generation of species, and migration aimed to reduce non-human limitations in order to continue survival. …
