Seeing Is Believing
THOTH / HERMES
"Hermes teaches that the mind of a human being is made in the image of
God's Big Mind. If we can free our mind from the limitations
imposed by the physical body, we can experience the Mind of God. We were
created with the specific purpose of learning to do this. This is the spiritual
goal of human life. To reach this destination we must expand our awareness.
We must use the power of our little minds to reach out to God's Big Mind."
"As above; so below."

He determined that if philosophy was to be successful it must annex to itself
something like a "geometrical method" so that its starting-point
and conclusions might be as certain as those of geometry.
Descartes' philosophy unfolds in three major stages:
1) First, the knowledge of the mind;
2) Second, the knowledge of God;
3) Third, the knowledge of matter."

2 Corinthians Be perfect, be of good comfort,
be of one mind, live in peace;
the God of love and peace shall be with you.
Philippians 2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be
having the same love, being of one accord,
of one mind.
John 17:21 That they all may be one; as
thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee,
that they also may be one in us.

height; (4D geometry)
1. To perceive with the eyes.
2. To perceive with the mind; understand.
"To see" has two meanings; one is to see visually with your
eyes and the other is to understand. Although they have different
meanings, for the majority of us, they are intrinsically connected.
"I see," said the blind man.
Some of us, like this blind man, do not need to visually see something in
order to understand it; however, a great many of us do need "to see"
in order "to see." This is because of the nature of our brains - our minds.
Scientifically, it is explained as follows:
"People who have almost no alpha rhythms under any conditions think almost exclusively by visual imagery,
whereas people with a persistent alpha rhythm tend to be abstract thinkers".
"About two-thirds of the population have alpha waves that are disrupted by attention.
Of the remaining third, about one-half have almost no alpha rhythm at all and about
one-half have persistent alpha rhythms that are not easily disrupted by attention."

To summarize, the majority of mankind requires some form of visual imagery
in order to understand. It is easy for us to comprehend visible things
because we can see them; however, for non-visible things, such as certain
concepts or ideas, it is difficult, if not impossible, for some of us to
understand because we cannot see them. Consider yourself. Are you able to
learn simply by reading or listening to the words, or do you learn better
when the words are accompanied by a visual aid such as a diagram?

Is "a picture is worth a thousand words" true for you?
If it is, then the purpose of this theory is to help YOU to "see."
Since the beginning of our time, two of the most difficult non-visible concepts
for mankind to comprehend have been:
Why can't we figure out or understand The Mind (Ourselves)? Because we can't
see it. Why can't some of us understand - or believe in - God? Because we
can't see Him. What do we need in order to help us understand these concepts?
We need a visual aid. We need a picture.
I have drawn a diagram which visually explains, among other things,
both The Mind and God. It is a very simple diagram, but it explains a great
Before I explain the diagram, I must first explain how I can physically draw
this mental concept. In order to do that, I must define what I believe "life"
Life is about the choices we make and the consequences of those
choices. Each choice has a consequence from which other choices and consequences
evolve. Life is a continuous cycle of choice and consequence; of thinking
and doing. The "thinking" occurs mentally in our MINDS and the "doing"
occurs physically in the acting upon those choices as our LIVES. This
portrays the intrinsic connection between the two thus establishing how both
can be represented in the same diagram.
To summarize, life is a "journey." A journey of choices and consequences
we walk along the "paths of life."
To summarize the diagram, it is initially a 3-dimensional representation
of The Mind. It consists of 3 axes or paths and basically portrays The
Mind as a Box. (You have no doubt heard the saying, "Think outside the box.")
The 3 axes represent the 3 paths of our "journey" of life.
Each of us exists somewhere along each of these 3 paths. Each of us is at
a different point in our journey and thus a different point on each path.
Using these 3 points, we can draw a 3-dimensional box which represents
our mind. It is not only important for us to determine where we are on each
path, but more importantly, the direction or The Way that we are facing
or traveling on each path as this direction determines whether we have an
open or closed mind. God is explained by this
diagram in taking the 3 paths to their points of infinity thus explaining
God's Mind as the "infinite box" or the "infinite open mind."
The 3 axes or "paths of life" are as follows: EMOTION, MOTIVE
This diagram enables you to figure out your own mind as well as the minds
of others. Each of us exists as a point somewhere along each of these 3 axes.
Once we determine where we exist (see Theory), we can draw a 3-dimensional
representation of our mind - of ourselves - as shown in the following
"The Eye" represents our "point of view" - our point of "perspective"
of seeing (visually) and seeing (understanding).
Not only have you drawn 'Your Mind', you have drawn 'YOURSELF'. You have
now answered the question, "Who am I?" Having figured yourself
out, you can then understand yourself and "Peace of Mind" is
Once you have figured out others, then you can understand them,
and then you can deal with and manage that knowledge from and with a different
"perspective" - instead of one of misunderstanding, frustration, and anger,
one of understanding and peace, and "Peace on Earth" is achievable.
(Now you can "see" why you do not see "eye to eye" with everyone.)
Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice;
with the voice together shall they sing:
for they shall see eye to eye,
when the LORD shall bring again Zion.
This theory describes how mankind is becoming more and more
closed-minded. Basically, this is because we continue
to travel in the "wrong" direction on the 3 paths - towards Self, Hate, and
Ignorance, thus decreasing the size of our "box", in other words, closing
our mind. Choices and consequences. We are making the "wrong"
choices, or, the choices that we are making are being made for the "wrong"
reasons. The destination of mankind's "journey" in this "wrong" direction
is "The End" - our self-destruction. It IS that serious.
"Beginning in the 1970's, two developments began to focus attention on
extinction in a new way. The first was the recognition that human beings
were now very numerous, and were altering the planet at a very rapid rate
- eliminating traditional habitats, clearing the rain forest, polluting air
and water, perhaps even changing global climate. In the process, many species
were becoming extinct. Some scientists cried out in alarm; others were quietly
uneasy. How fragile was the earth's ecosystem? Was the species engaged
in behavior that would eventually lead to its own extinction?"
(The Lost World by Michael Crichton)
The answer is YES! With the diagram, we can now "see" this truth.
This theory describes how, in order to avoid this catastrophic end, we must
all change our behaviour, and in order to do that, we must change The Way
we think - we must change our MINDS. We must all turn from being closed-minded
to being open-minded. This diagram shows how we can do this.
Simply put, we must all change the direction we are facing on the 3 paths,
and start heading in the "right" direction - towards Others, Love, and Wisdom.
If we travel in this direction, there is no "End" - it continues into
And how do we do that? We choose to. So, in the end, it all comes
down to YOU:
Your MIND - Your Choice.
Ephesians 3:18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is
the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
This diagram initially explains "The Mind," and then, as it expands into
space and time, it explains God, which is, in fact, the diagram taken to
its points in infinity on each of the 3 axes. No matter what religion we
follow, no matter what language we speak, no matter what name we call our
God, this diagram explains everyone's God: God IS Infinite Love, Infinite
Good, and Infinite Knowledge/Wisdom/Truth.
God is ALL-SEEING (Sees All - Knows All).
He has the HIGHEST Point of View/Perspective (Visual AND Mental).
This diagram also shows the intrinsic relationship between God and our minds.
It shows that God is in our mind and that we are in God's mind. When we pray,
do we need to say it out loud? No. We can talk to God "in our minds" and
He hears us. He knows our every thought. How? Because He is everywhere,
especially in our minds. This mind-to-mind connection is our direct and constant
link to God "showing" you that a personal relationship with God IS
Ephesians 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and
through all, and in you all.
This diagram not only shows God, it also shows "The Way." It is, in effect,
a MAP. Following the 3 axes or "paths" in the "right" direction, towards
God, is "The Way."
Before some of you get upset by that statement, please read my entire theory
as there is much more to "The Way" than what I have just stated.
Job 38:19 Where is the way where
and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,
That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof,
and thou shouldest know the paths to the house
Ephesians 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye
light in the Lord;
walk as children of light.
Exodus 18:20 And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws,
and shalt shew them the way wherein they
and the work that they must do.
Proverbs 2:20 So you will walk in the way of good
And keep to the paths of the righteous.
Isaiah 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way
that they knew not;
I will lead them in paths that they have not
I will make darkness light before them,
and crooked things straight.
These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.
This theory and diagram "show" you God. Why do many people not believe in
God? Because we cannot see Him and for many of us, we need "to see"
in order "to see," and for many of us, "Seeing Is
Believing." Also, many of us cannot - or will not - "see" because
our minds are too closed because we are facing the wrong direction on the
3 paths. In order to "see" God, we must be open-minded, looking in the "right"
direction on all 3 paths, because THAT is where God is.
- In this theory, Seeing Is Believing, "Seeing" not only refers to
seeing as in visually, but also seeing as in understanding. This is one of
the most important concepts of this theory.
And how do we do that? We choose to. Again it all comes down to YOU:
Your MIND - Your Choice.
The Mind... The Way
Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his WAY, and the
unrighteous man his THOUGHTS:
and let him return unto the Lord.
my THOUGHTS are NOT your THOUGHTS,
neither are my WAYS your WAYS, saith the Lord.
as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my WAYS higher than your WAYS,
and my THOUGHTS than your THOUGHTS.
The beginning of Wisdom is:
Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.
This is a very basic summarization of my theory,
Seeing Is Believing. For more details,
descriptions, explanations, evidences, and proofs please continue on to read
the theory in its entirety.
