yanniru: Mantras are the programming language of the soul, and linguistics is the science of the soul. In Christianity, the Word is God, and in Judiaism, the world was created using the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. DNA is coded in words, and the laws of nature in math. It all suggests that we are products of a supernatural computer system.

tenacious: That's pretty interesting. However, language and numbers are basically definitions that we used to denote things in our physical reality. A symbol you might say. Therefore such abstract concepts such as math do not exist in the objective world, they are merely inventions of human thought formulated for the purpose of understanding the world around us. For example, the word "tree" would be meaningless if it were not used to define a tree. DNA however, is not coded in words. They are simply a combination of organic compounds. The example you used: "the Word is God," the word is merely representative of God right? You wouldn't say that written text is literally God, otherwise you would be admitting that God is nothing more than an abstract concept. All the order that humans perceive to be working around us might simply be imposed by our own minds. The letters that you refer to (Adenine, Guanine, Thymine, etc.) are invented by humans to denote each of the nucleotide bases. Which brings me to the question, how can you be certain that the things we observe are anything like the way reality truely is? Being human we are drastically limited to our flawed senses, wouldn't you agree? Greg: While language may just be symbolic, our senses evolved in the reality of our environment, and so are not really flawed, as they are simply not as acute as we need them to be. Reality is Truly mostly as we perceive it to be. The reality of everything involved with our computers could be said to only be its binary nature, 1 and 0, yes and no, on and off, but the binary programming allows the True Reality to be far more then that. Abstract views, Theoritical views, Imaginary views, and even views that precisely emulate reality can be expressed here. The Universe is synonymous with this view in that God Created it as an incubator for the Creation of New Life, and also, through its Nature, to teach that Life all there is to Understand about Being, Even Unto God. The numerical or symbolic components of math may simply be an abstract concept, but what they represent is very real, and we are very aware of that reality, or else we could not construct the abtract sybolism. If you doubt it, look upon the date of Aug. 6, 1945, and what it will always be remembered for. Mathematical Comprehension alone led to the reality realized that day.
