Physics is about particles, their properties and their interactions. Everything else (distance, space, time, etc.) is either abstract or voodoo. In order for two particles to interact, they must have at least one property in common. In this post, I explain the meaning of the symbolic properties described in the ancient texts in greater detail and I examine the dubious concept of spin angular momentum. Please read Part I before continuing.
Cherubim, Seraphim and Their Strange Properties
About two and a half thousands years ago, an Israelite priest named Ezekiel described a vision in which he saw four cherubim (living creatures) each having a body, four faces, four wings, feet and hands. Ezekiel also wrote that he saw what appeared to be gigantic wheels next to the living creatures and that they had the appearance of wheels within wheels. Many have speculated that Ezekiel may have been observing extraterrestrials and their flying saucers. However, it does not take a genius to realize that Ezekiel's vision is purely symbolic. My current understanding is that Ezekiel's creatures and wheels were metaphors for an idealized or special type of composite particle and its properties. Elsewhere in the same book, Ezekiel describes another type of cherubim having only two faces. So obviously, just as there are several types of seraphim with their properties, there are also several types of cherubim with their own sets of properties.
The books of Isaiah and Revelation use symbols such as wings, faces, eyes and feet in connection with seraphim. Ezekiel's cherubim have additional properties such as bodies and hands. What follows below is a quick rundown of the symbols that I have decoded so far and what I think they represent. (Please note that I am just a researcher and that I don't have a complete understanding of all the metaphors. One of my goals is to create a research institute whose purpose is to fully unravel all these mysteries. That will take money, but that's another topic.)
- Sea of Glass. Both Ezekiel and the book of Revelation mention an immense crystal-like sea of glass. This is what I refer to as the lattice proper. Its primary function is to provide the energy needed to sustain motion. There can be no motion without the lattice because particles move in the lattice only by interacting with the seraphim. In turn, the interactions give rise to electric and magnetic phenomena.
- Throne. Apparently, there is some sort of authority or central principle, if you will, that gives meaning to all properties and determines how they interact.
- Seraphim. These are the energetic particles that comprise the lattice. There are four types of seraphim, each of which is associated with one of the four dimensions. Seraphim are originally at absolute rest. However, once dislodged via an interaction with another particle, they immediately begin to move at the speed of light by interacting with other seraphim. My current understanding is that one type of seraphim is associated with electric interactions and the other three with magnetic interactions.
- Face. The face is the particle's orientation with respect to the four dimensions. A particle can have up to four faces, one for each dimension. A seraph only has a single face. Furthermore, a face can have either of two orientations, forward or backward.
- Wing. The wing is one of four possible types of energy that a particle can have, the others being the body, the feet and the hands (see below). It is similar to what physicists call kinetic energy. Every particle must have wings in order to move in the lattice. Every wing is associated with one of the four dimensions and can be either positive or negative. Therefore, a non-composite particle can have up to eight wings.
- Body. This is what physicists normally refer to as matter or mass but, in reality, it's just another form of energy. What is important to note here is that energy can be transfered from the body into the wings and vice versa. That's assuming, of course, that the particle has a body in the first place.
- Feet. This property is apparently used to force all matter particles to move in the fourth dimension at the speed of light. This property is essential to my gravity hypothesis.
- Hands. Hands are associated with grabbing behavior. It seems that composite matter particles need some mechanism to keep them from moving apart. This is probably related to what physicists refer to as the strong nuclear force.
- Eyes. Eyes are normally associated with sensing at a distance. Having many eyes is a way of saying that one has the ability to sense what's going on around oneself without actually being there. I liken it to what quantum physicists call nonlocality.
- Wheels. My current understanding of the wheel is that it represents the sphere of energetic influence that every particle seem to have on every other particle. This is not unlike what physicists call the wave function of a particle. Note that I am still debating in my mind the full meaning of Ezekiel's wheels. I will have more to say about them in a future article. And no, they are not flying saucers or chariots of the gods or alien spacecrafts or what not.
One of the things about particle physics that has always bothered me is the concept of quantum angular momentum otherwise known as the spin of a particle. It's obviously a bogus idea since a sizeless point particle cannot possibly have an angular momentum. Besides, angular momentum assumes the existence of continuity, a bogus concept. So I was immediately struck with a sense of excitement and joy when I read that Ezekiel's allegorical creatures moved straight forward and turned not as they moved. That's when I became totally convinced that I was onto something. One of the questions that I have asked myself is, which of the properties of cherubim and seraphim correspond to what physicists call spin and charge? Based on the known behavior of normal matter particles, it is not too hard to deduce which properties they have in common with lattice particles and which correspond to the ancient scriptural metaphors I listed above. This will the subject of my next post in this series when I discuss the electron, its charge polarity and its magnetic spin.
