I think it is only fair to first explain the perspective that is driving me to seek, and is guiding the process of, this interpretation. I believe that DNA, the source of all life, is a higher intelligence, or a message left from a higher intelligence. It codes all life, and life itself is the message. It is the expression of a higher intelligence. All of the religions, the philosophies, the stories, the poems, the art, and various cultural expressions, are coded messages from this intelligence that we call DNA, as mediated by the nervous system, itself designed by this higher intelligence. I decided there must certainly be a hidden message in the biblical story of creation, just waiting to be decoded. As I began, it was just like that. A coded message, which my brain was to decode. This is my transmission then, as mediator between the Genetic-Intelligence, which one may not unjustifiably call God, and you. I am the mediator in that the biblical story of creation is a coded message from DNA, and I am going to help decode it.

Verse 1: ‘Created Heaven and Earth’: Heaven representing the higher, divine, evolved principle. Earth representing the lower, base, primitive principle. ‘Lower, base, primitive’ may seem to imply something less than the other principle, but these are just metaphor. If you understand the signal, the meaning, these words won’t confuse you.

Verse 2: ‘Earth without form and void’: The lower principle exists originally as pure potential, the Unmanifest. Kaballah says Earth was created because God desired a dwelling-place in the lower realms.   This dwelling place is the Sephira, the spirit or emenation of God, called Malkhut, which means the Kingdom, as in the Kingdom of God or Heaven. From one perspective, Malkhut, the lower realm, Earth, is the most base, mundane and low of all aspects, realms, or sephirot of God/creation. This is according to the path of ascension, since it is lowest on the down-up path. On the path of emenation, however, which is up-down, and the perspective of the Most High, it is the glorious culmination of creation. ‘darkness upon the face of the deep.’ Since ‘Earth’ represents the lower principle, and it is unformed, and therefore without limitation, it is called ‘the deep.’ ‘Darkness’ refers to the void, and the passage implies the inherent first existence of the void, or darkness. From this primal state, God, the light, the active principle, begins his work; this culminates in Malkhut, ‘Earth,’ which has been biblically called darkness, without light, nothing, thus representing the completion of the cycle. Darkness-light-darkness. ‘Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters’: Active principle, God, light, began its work on the pre-existing, passive void. Called ‘waters’ to reference the fact that it is flow, without resistence.

Verse 3: ‘Let there be light’: God began the downward path of emenation.

Verse 4: ‘Light was good…divided from darkness’: The darkness is beyond all notions of ‘good’ and ‘bad.’ It is also without ‘life’ as we think of it. Life has the natural drive for the good, the beneficial, the pleasurable, thus that principle, called ‘light’ and ‘good,’ was created, as the balancing force, ‘separate from’ the darkness, the void. ‘Darkness’ is the inherent existence of the Universe. It is ‘cold’ in that it has no relationship to life. It represents the principle of entropy, whereby systems increase in disorder over time, which is the opposite of conduciveness to life. ‘The light’ is life, and it represents negative entropy. With the light, and negative entropy, systems tend to increase in both complexity and order. It, therefore, represents evolution. Life, the light, is therefore the great balancing force in the cosmic equation that is existence. Life and evolution, the light, is good. Without the light, things just are. No pleasure, no joy, no increase of intelligence. Though perhaps one could say these things are not ‘necessary,’ it is good, and it is why we are here, and it brings balance.

Verse 5: ‘And the evening and the morning’: As previously stated, the void was first, thus the evening is before morning. Entropy, because of its constancy, is said to be an arrow of time. Light and dark, order and disorder, entropy and negative entropy, are thus intimately connected with time. This is why day and night is separated, to indicate time. Now just as entropy has a constant ‘direction’ thus its relationship to time, so to does negative entropy, and its is opposite. Thus you get the two opposing directions, which is related to the ‘path of ascension’ and ‘path of emenation’ I referred to previously. The distinction between ‘light’ and ‘dark’ also is the initial introduction of duality.

Verse 6/7: ”Let there be a firmament…to divide the waters above from the waters below’: The division of light and dark, day and night, entropy and negative entropy, created duality in time, as the two imply opposite ‘directions’ in time. Time and space being intimately connected through space-time, a duality in space naturally followed. Thus a firmament was created to divide the ‘waters,’ which means the flow of energy, into its basic duality. ‘Firmament’ generally means a physical thing, expansive, referring to the neverending duality of physical reality. This barrier between the polar ends, ‘the waters above and the waters below,’ is itself the connecting thread between them, through which they are one. The uniting thread between all polarities is the key to all things, thus the firmament is called Heaven, as per verse 8.

My body is my Temple. Anything that distracts me from reclusive and absorbed presence in the Temple is irreverent and irrelevant. This Temple is inherently there. No movement or action is required at all to be in your Holy Place. Any movement that is not purposefully of a pragmatic or ecstatic nature should be discarded. This means movements of body, but it also means movement of the eyes, and speech, and mental activity. So much of our energies are used for completely pointless activities. We sit around and fidget, move our eyes around, and analyze everything, because we don’t know how to be still, and feel we always have to be doing something. Ecstatic union with God is impossible in such a state.

Our baseline of ‘stillness’ is actually quite a high amount of movement or perceptual activities, and we become entirely de-sensitized to that range of activity, as if it is nothing. All things that happen to us are judged in relation to that baseline, which is a farily high level of activity. We have no sensitivity. We cannot experience ecstacy. We cannot know God. All of this unnecessary activity degrades your Temple. The aim of life is to know Self, to know God. God is not found through activities in the world, but through seeking him in his Temple, your body.
