in understanding how the universe came to be, there is to be found a practical application, which is that there is an eternal, perpetual energy which can evolve to be something wonderful.
our understanding is that from quantum fluctuations the universe did come.
all things come forth from this energy and connect to it.
in our being conscious we connect in a different way, perhaps.
but this: there is an eternal energy from which the universe was born.
we can connect with this energy most intensely thru being lucid.
