Plausible theories are usually based on previous similar cases or on analogies that bear illuminating resemblance to the new postulate. But Lemaitre couldn’t possibly have resorted to any such previous experiences or similarities because there is absolutely nothing in recorded history that may even remotely resemble the beginning of the Universe. Nobody knows how that allegedly happened. So there is no way Lemaitre could have relied on anything but sheer imagination when conceiving his story.

And if to this we add the fact that Lemaitre was a Catholic priest, we have a pronounced possibility that he was highly influenced by the bible when he got the “inspiration” for his pseudo-scientific postulate. From this perspective, the Big Bang theory is just a modern version of the same old mythological Genesis-like tales and beliefs, except that this time the tale is told in pseudo-scientific jargon.

Nobody in this world has any first-hand experience of any Genesis-like event and nobody in this world has any first-hand experience of any Apocalypse-like event either. But, if this is so, where is it that all those pseudo-scientific, mythological and religious versions of the Genypse come from? If the Big-Bangeddon is just a worldwide collective subconscious memory and if there is no way for any of us to have witnessed any such event because none of us could have ever been there in the first place, what is it that we are recalling when we come up with any Genypse-like or Big-Bangeddon-like stories and theories?

There’s no denying that Genypse tales have been told across the world since times immemorial. If Genypse stories were found exclusively in the bible it would be rather easy to discard them as just one element of a specific set of religious beliefs, but that is not the case. Genypse theories are found in the mythological tales of peoples and tribes disseminated across the entire world and across the long span of human history. This fact makes such theories and stories a bit difficult to disregard as random localisms.

There is definitely something universal in those theories and tales, some sort of primary, archetypal, recurrent pattern that pertains to the whole human race. This is a reason why some people may try to explain the universality of those stories using terms like “collective subconscious” or “collective memory,” meaning this is an issue that concerns all of us, not as individuals, but as a collective entity.

The “collective” aspect of this phenomenon seems to point to an encoded DNA-like source of inspiration that generates collective but subconscious archetypal intuitions that sometimes surface to the conscious of some people, regardless of their ethnicity or place of origin, prompting them to express very similar Genypse-like kinds of mythological tales and theories. This may well sound a bit far fetched to some, but I’m willing to bet that Joseph Campbell et al would consider it a rather plausible idea.

Still, even if the archetypal-intuition proposition made above were true, the questions would still remain: How could human beings have DNA-like Genesis codes encrypted in them if the human race didn’t exist yet when Creation allegedly took place? And how can any of us have any encoded intuitions about the Apocalypse if the Apocalypse has never happened before and it hasn’t happened yet?

To answer those questions I propose to first look into some basic arguments that serve as foundation to some of the most populous religious denominations of our time. So let me start by clarifying some fundamental concepts that most of us take for granted, but whose explication may throw some light upon the subject in question.

  • The concepts of “Eternal,” “Everlasting” and “Ephemeral” are concepts that most of us can talk about with relative ease; nevertheless I will state a brief definition of them. Eternal is anything that has no beginning and no end. Everlasting is anything that has a beginning, but has no end. Ephemeral is anything that has a beginning and has an end relatively shortly there after. For example, all living beings on planet Earth are ephemeral.
  • There are basically two kinds of religions or transcendental philosophies in the world, monistic ones and dualistic ones. Monistic religions or philosophies don’t see any separation between Creator and Creation, while dualistic ones see the Creator residing outside Creation.
  • Monistic religions or beliefs cannot accept the end of creation for the same reason that they cannot accept the end of God. God is eternal, and since God is creation itself, then creation is eternal as well. From a monistic perspective, creation can evolve or transform itself, but it cannot one day self-destruct and come to an end. God is indestructible, and since God is creation, creation is indestructible too. Creation is God’s tangible expression of itself. Creation is God and God is Creation.
  • But God’s creation is constantly changing. God the creator is in constant flux and reflux. Each flux is a new generation of possibilities made available to the reality of “creation.” Each reflux is a generation of possibilities that has exhausted itself and returns to the creator.
  • In the monistic view, there are only two kinds of living beings: Eternal and Ephemeral. But all ephemeral beings have an eternal core. That core is one and the same with the Eternal Consciousness which is the substance of God, so it is not really a part of “creation.” It animates all the ephemeral living beings manifested in creation, but its existence does not depend on the existence of the ephemeral beings it animates. That core has a life of its own, and that life is eternal, it has no beginning and it has no end.
