The beginning of essenceism
The beginning of essenceism and the basis for all further steps is to define God as the Original Being, the supreme Absolute, the beyond the time and space First Cause and the Creator of All Things.
Such a God, hereinafter referred to as the Original Being, cannot "fit" in the space-time understood as the present universe examined by us. The time has passed for God to be placed on the golden throne above the clouds, who reigns among the angels who play him with trumpets. After this medieval vision, the views that placed God somewhere in space, among the stars, also failed. Furthermore the more modern explanation that God is everywhere loses sense in our time, because most people do not accept the dogmatic imposed act of faith.
Only noticing the limited time of the universe's existence by discovering its supposed starting point has created a new direction in understanding the correct position of the Original Being. This means that the universe had its source of insurrection, which became the beginning of its current state. The logical consequence of this fact is the confirmation of the phenomenon of its constant expansion. It was even established that this initial moment could have been the so-called Big Bang. As a result of this discovery, the universe was bound by boundary conditions and its duration was determined from the initial state to the present state at about 13.8 billion years. This situation entitles us to ask the first question: what was before the Big Bang and the second: to what state is the expanding universe heading? Against the backdrop of this situation, for the first time, the possibility of a logical imagination of the sphere beyond time and space, which could be a source sphere to the existing universe, arose for the first time. It means its existence from infinity, as well as being in its existence as unlimited and infinite in the perspective of the future, in other words, as in the case of the Original Being.
The above understanding of the simultaneous existence of two spheres: time-space limited in time (so far unilaterally) and unlimited by time and space leads to the conclusion that our universe emerged from the sphere beyond time and space. In addition, it entitles you to state that even an infinite number of universes could have emerged from such a sphere. However, in order not to "boil" our brains from overly extended thinking, let us stay for now with our one universe that emerged from this sphere.
All this leads to the conclusion that the Creator needs to be associated with this sphere, because it is like He is spatially unlimited and infinite from backward infinity to infinity in the uncertain future. So we're talking about the First Cause as Original Being a Mind-identified personally with this realm. He must have a Personality that is the source of all laws and principles, containing Intellect, Will and Emotionality - His basic qualities. Its should create a Personality Center identified with the colloquially used concept of the Spirit of God. If such a Original Being, which I described above, really exists, then of course it must be more powerful than our universe, more original than it is and the first source of its origin. At the same time, this Original Being should be "integrated" with the creative material, that is, with the Energy of the First Cause, which is also its necessary attribute. We can say that if we came to the conclusion that everything comes from energy. The Energy of the First Cause functions in both the spiritual and physical world, but in the latter it transforms into concrete forms of energy or matter that is knowable and measurable with scientific methods. We no longer have to believe that there was an inexplicable miracle of creating the world out of nothing. It's very close to imagining who God is, how and where to imagine His existence and how our universe was created. Together, it allows us to make progress in a fuller understanding of God as the Eternal Source of all things, our Creator. In further parts of this study I will use more "religious" concepts. For example, I will call the universe the physical world and the realm beyond the time and space of the spiritual world.
Summing up the above, I repeat the fundamental thesis of this study that the entire universe with all its material forms and various forms of energy is a creative transformation of the God's Primordial Energy. At the same time, His Personality, whose attributes permeate this Energy, I call the Spirit of God.
The assumptions of my essenceism concern the possibility of the coexistence of the physical universe with the spiritual universe penetrating this physical one. I present them in a separate menu.
ISTOTA - ESSENCEISM – a research system to determine the First Cause
It is a system of logical analysis of phenomena beyond time and space. I created it so that, using scientific terms, try to bring people to the concept of God as the First Cause. I would like also to make people aware of eternity in themselves and give them a chance to get to know the world beyond time and space, that is, the spiritual world.... Full information can be found at: www.istota.org
Attention! The original name of the system is Essenceism (by "s"), but in Polish website I use the Polonised version of the name of Essenceizm (by "z").Please see: - www.essenceizm.pl - © Copyright by Janusz Mazur - firstname.lastname@example.org

Essenceism corresponds to the questions: Who is God?; How is He?; Where is He located? - this is the motto of this site.
