Jesus’ Binary Code (Quote from Diane Allison)

Jesus' Binary Code

Excerpts from a coming article by Diane Allison:

“Mary Baker Eddy’s summary of her work, Unity of Good, is this:  “… God is All, and God is Spirit;… consequently there is no matter.” (Unity of Good, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 34:10)

The exponential progress of humankind, enabling instantaneous communication, satellite tracking, space travel, minute energy sources and phenomenal industrial efficiency all are the result of one simple methodology for coding computers: the binary code, reducing all calculations to one choice: If it isn’t one, it’s zero.

Jesus made greater triumphs over nature, space and time, instantaneously restoring health and arriving at destinations, walking on water, multiplying loaves and fishes, raising the dead. And he also used a binary code.

If it isn’t One,– one God, one Life, one power, one Mind, one Spirit — it’s zero. Nothing.  One infinite Love, filling all time, space, being, identity, existence, and every manifestation of that infinite all at one with its source.

Evil? A liar and the father of lies. “There is no truth in him.” (John 8:44)  In other words, zero.

There is no vulnerable flesh, no matter, in Spirit. Spirit is the infinite one. Therefore flesh, or matter, is zero, zero impact, zero history, zero future, zero.  It never was.

“The Lord our God is one Lord (Deut 6:4)… and him only shalt thou serve.” (Matt 4:10)
“Let your answers be yea or nay. All else is evil.” (Matt 5:37)

It’s either yes or no. All or nothing. One or zero.
No wishy-washy sometimes, no flabby maybe’s, no tentative ifs.
Yes or no.
All or nothing.
One or zero.

We may think we have a choice. We don’t.
We all live in the inescapable One of infinite, cosmically harmonious good.”

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    Thank you, Polly. I love thinking along these lines. Here’s another correlative passage from the Bible, “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, they whole body shall be full of light.” (Matthew 6:22 and Luke 11:34) Similarly, the FIRST First Commandment is actually “Let there be light,” indicating that creation is not the fabrication of something out of nothing, but the revelation of What Eternally Is. In other words, the “void” that supposedly existed before the Big Bang is, in fact, current ignorance of What Is. Interestingly “zero” is a manmade concept, invented for the purpose of counting money. Zero does not mean nothing; rather “zero” is a place-holder. It makes sense to me that the first binary code is Light and the “place holder” for that Light. Rippling outward from this original Light, is the binary code of complementary opposites. Jesus revealed those complementary opposites when he distilled the Ten Commandments down to two: the First and Second Great Commandments (Matthew 22:36-40). These commandments present one Love and the likeness of that Love: image and likeness/one and all/personal and universal/male and female. Since there is no matter, male and female cannot be gender specific or anatomical terms. Male and female refer to Spirit only. They are two halves of a whole being, defining who we are as singular, unique expressions of an all-inclusive, universal Spirit. Since Spirit and Love are synonyms for God we could also say that each individual is a unique expression and experience of a Love that “passes all understanding” — a Love that resonates to the top of the head, the tip of the toes, and middle of the bones. God is not a three-letter word, but a direct, all-inclusive, singularly unique expression of YES. (WH Auden might call this “moral algebra.”)

    So THERE, zeros!!!!!

    I love the simplicity of this truth, Polly. Thanks.
