2. "Understood from what has been made"

Romans 1:20 ~

"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." (New International Bible)

INTERPRETATION: We can understand God's invisible qualities by studying the energy formed into our universe. In essence, by studying the effect, we can learn things about the cause; or, by studying our created universe, we can learn things about God, our Creator. It's similar to learning things about bloggers by studying their blogs. For example, even if a sole author created numerous different blogsites, there is still a unique trademark, brand, style, pattern or code that ties each blogsite back to its sole author.

Similarly, studying our universe reveals 2 patterns common to every being, indicative of a sole creator's trademark in shaping energy and reflective of our sole creator's invisible qualities, as shown below:

Pattern #1 - Masculinity and Femininity*

*Note: The asterisk highlights the fact that each above category contains a range of variation; yet, the extreme ends of the variation spectrum are always and only masculinity and femininity. Variation between the extremes includes:
  • Neutrons
  • Hermaphroditic plant, animal, and human types
  • Combination matter and/or plant types
  • Combination plant and/or animal types
  • Combination man and/or woman types

Pattern #2 - Mind and Body*

*Note: The asterisk highlights the fact that the human mind integrates all invisible aspects of the mind qualities, including, but not limited to:
  • mind
  • spirit mind
  • flesh mind
  • soul
  • heart
  • conscience
  • desires
  • thoughts
  • intellect
  • emotions
  • will
