My Encounter with God: Part VIII

As I got the first proof/evidence for the existence of God, so I thought that time had come to publish my book in Bengali. But then an incident happened on which I had no control whatsoever. I was suddenly transferred to a remote part of India. Of course it was a routine transfer, because the job I was doing was under the Government of India, and therefore there was every possibility to be transferred to any part of India during my service life. The place where I was transferred was in the north-eastern part of India. It was called Nagaland. I knew that I would not get many books to read there, and so I decided to carry with me some books. But the books that I was ultimately able to carry with me were only four in number, and one of them was Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time. I read and reread that book many times, maybe forty to fifty times, and I fully realized why Hawking wanted to develop a model that he named no boundary model. This was because he totally wanted to eliminate God from the creation event, and so he developed a theory in which there would be no creation event at all, and thus there would be no need for a creator. But the main defect of that theory was that the success of that theory fully depended on the assumption that time would have to be imaginary throughout. In this way only any singularity could be avoided. But Hawking himself admitted that we lived in real time, and he also admitted that if in its past history the universe had at any time entered from imaginary time to real time, then there would be singularity. So, as per Hawking himself, no boundary model was a flop show.

However, reading and rereading that book sitting in some remote part of India proved extremely beneficial to me, as because this book helped me solve the riddle ‘Who created God?’ Yes, it was really a riddle for me, and once I used to think that this riddle could never be solved. How could someone find himself inside a room which has neither any entrance nor any exit? But God thought it otherwise, and so the things were moved in such a way that I was detached from my family for at least one and a half year during which period I could fully devote my leisure hours to studying books, without having any obligation to do anything for my family. One day while I was reading that part of Hawking’s book where he was describing how particles could arise from out of pure energy, suddenly there was an illumination. Here Hawking was also describing where the energy came from out of which particles had actually originated, the answer being that it all came from zero, because the total energy of the universe is exactly zero. Here suddenly a thought came to my mind that when we said something about God, we also said that thing mostly in terms of zeroes. We said God was spaceless, timeless, changeless etc. So if we could somehow show that God was also a bunch of several zeroes, then perhaps the above riddle regarding the origin of God could be solved once for all. And in this way only this riddle was ultimately solved. I was successful in showing that from the point of view of existence as well as from the point of view of essence God could be said to be zero. Therefore God needs no creation.

However, there is a big controversy here. Some people are very much opposed to the idea that the total energy of the universe is zero. According to them, it is simply silly and nonsensical to treat the gravitational energy as negative energy. But most of the scientists are of the opinion that this gravitational energy is indeed negative energy, and that as a result the total energy of the universe is zero, and based on this fact they usually say that as its total energy is zero, so the universe can, and will, originate from nothing. So, if the estimate of the scientists about the total energy of the universe is correct, then my thesis about the origin of God is also correct.
