The James Webb Space Telescope launched December 25th, to travel a million miles to Lagrange Point 2, where it will capture images of old-time galaxies and stars that, 13 billion years ago, emitted light that has since stretched into the infrared region of the color spectrum.
In other words, the Webb Telescope will prompt discoveries that will modify our view of the universe and creation.
As scientists of Mind, what view do we have now?
Last century, with the aid of older telescopes, an infinite was revealed. We’re now learning about an ever-expanding cosmos. The problem is, for everything learned about the physical workings, we have two more questions.
To settle the mysteries, we can take analyze the mental workings behind the fabulous eccentric goals of the Webb telescope, the goals, to detect old light or to determine the origin of the universe up against the Big-Bang theory.
The Webb Telescope is a result of curiosity, creativity, and intelligence, working together. Whether the telescope works physically, or not, is to be determined, but either way, our curiosity, creativity, and intelligence will remain and expand with the courage that doesn’t quit learning. Infinite discovery.
Merriam-Webster defines, infinite, as having no limits, endless.
What if the Webb telescope shows no end to light?
If there is no end, is there no beginning?
No beginning, no end.
Jesus used the idea of an infinite to show our ability to forgive others, and our self, for transgressions or for quitting truth and love.
From the Gospel Luke, “Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?”Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”
In the Hebrew language of the Old Testament, the word, “seven” resembles the word for wholeness or completeness. Infinite?
With our own mental telescopes, we search for enlightenment, sourced from infinite Mind, Spirit. With our spirituality, we express forgiveness, newness, self-control, gratitude, honesty, endlessly.
Peer reviews follow. Peer analyses of forgiveness and spirituality come with high approvals. We prove that unforgiveness limits us, whereas forgiveness removes limits.
Epimenides of Crete, reputed as a sixth century seer, before the birth of Christ Jesus, has been credited with the saying, about God, “For in him we live and move and have our being.” Paul quotes the biblical words in Acts 17:28.
