One way to think about it
    #1805957 - 08/12/03 04:06 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Imagine a dark sphere, surrounded by light. The light cannot shine into the sphere unless it penetrates the surface. So it sends out individual rays to penetrate the globe. These rays are concentrated bursts of light, like lasers. The individual rays are able to penetrate the globe, but since every one of the rays has a different point and angle of entry, they all shine a different light when they reach the inside of the shpere. Although each ray is from the same light source, they all have different appearances and travel in different directions.

The Light is God.

The rays are individual conscious entities (humans being one example)

The darkened sphere is the observable, physical (luciferian) universe.

this is just a metaphor I've been toying with in my head for a few days. comments and criticism are welcome.

How can light send out individual rays?

hmmm... I'll edit that for clarification

ok, edited... but I'm using the word "light" in a metaphorical sense. I'm not trying to start a discussion about the properties of actual light.

What if the globe had little holes in it for the light to enter, and a reflective inside so they bounce all over the place?...not sure where im going with this.... :rolleyes:
