MISSION STATEMENT: Refutation of thermodynamics as a biogenesis. BTTOL researchers are organized around the sole purpose of preventing any biogenesis other than a Personal Cause from being legally recognized.

The Message in the BTTOL

In the previous post, some of the characteristics of the message in the BTTOL were explored. Invoking Shannon's theories of information, some of the message's error correcting capabilities were discussed.

Shannon's theories give orthagonal characteristics that any message must possess in order to be reliably received; namely:

1) Parallelism (vertical)
2) Redundancy (horizontal)

This is an accurate characterization of any kind of reliable communication. But what is the message? Given that this message created (and is continually doing so) life, the universe and everything, it can be postulated that the message has something to do with creativity, birth, conception and a core intent to be made manifest (labour).

In no special order:
- creativity
- birth
- conception
- labour

If the above keywords are placed into any popular search engine, the word "Love" appears in the most relevant results.

Could Love be the message in the BTTOL? Is Love a message? If so, then we know that in order for an entity to reliably receive Love, an orthagonal approach must be undertaken.

Firstly (in the vertical), there must be receptors, preferably as many as possible. Since Love implies consent, any receptor must possess free will. This would require entities choosing to believe that the message of Love exists, is being continually broadcast everywhere from some transpersonal source, and can be received.

Secondly, (in the horizontal) these willing entities would require an unwavering ability to persevere in the decision to act as receptors.

Consider the following wikipedia definition of the word "faith":

"The word faith has various uses; its central meaning is similar to "belief", "trust" or "confidence", but unlike these terms, "faith" tends to imply a transpersonal rather than interpersonal relationship – with God or a higher power. The object of faith can be a person (or even an inanimate object or state of affairs) or a proposition (or body of propositions, such as a religious credo). In each case, however, the faithful subject's faith is in an aspect of the object that cannot be rationally proven or objectively known. Faith can also be defined as accepting as true something which one has been told by someone who is believed to be trustworthy. In its proper sense faith means trusting the word of another."


So reception of the Love that is the message in the BTTOL requires orthagonal faith - many willing and patient receptors.

In the next posting, a summarization of the results of the discussion thus far will be given.
