Intricate Systems (Part II)
The story of creation with its six days of work and one of rest started out as a parable coded in word-crafting. The interpretations lost their way, however, as they were told over centuries. The only question left worth asking is: what days were being used to measure these events? Not all days are equal. A Mercurial day is longer than the year on Mercury. The moon’s day lasts forever. Perhaps the story of how this material creation began in seven days was referring to a different measure of a day than an Earth day. A universal day in the ancient stories of the Vedas was originally called a Day of Brahma (Sanskrit for GOD). It was calculated as the time it takes for the core of our universe to rotate one full time on its axis. Just like the twenty-four hour day is the rotation of Earth on its axis. The universal day is the rotation of our universe around its core. This actually calculates in science terms to just under three billion years. The ancients discovered this without any instruments other than the human brain, body and deep meditation. If you’re open to this concept it makes the evolutionary dateline and the creationist dateline somewhat equal, somewhere between fifteen and eighteen billion years – just like science.
