The universe is not a random grouping of disassociated entities moving aimlessly through time and space, but rather a finely-balanced system of interrelated beings which interact in an orderly fashion, guided by a unifying purpose. If this were not so, there would be no basis for science, which presupposes the existence of common elements and universal laws in the cosmos and works to identify and understand them. However, science cannot provide a complete picture of reality without a complementary understanding of the internal dimensions of the creation. As shown in the previous chapter, the order and harmony of the universe result from the character and purpose with which God endowed the invisible, internal elements of creation. It is the external manifestations of these internal realities which are known to science.

Subject and Object
The dual characteristics of any creation exist in dynamic relationship with each other. In order for there to be interaction between them, one must initiate the relationship and the other respond. The initiator is the subject and the responding partner an object. 


God is the Prime Subject, the creation His object. Within the creation, humans are subject to all other beings, which, in turn, are ordered into hierarchies of subject-object relations. Through this chain of being, all creations are connected to the Creator, God, the source of existence and life, and the various individual creations are tied into a harmonious whole. As subject of the whole cosmos, God is the internal character to the creation's external form, the masculine initiator to creation's responsive, feminine nature.

The myriad subject-object interactions within each level of creation maintain and develop each subdivision of nature. For example, protons, neutrons and electrons interact to form atoms; cations and anions combine to form molecules; most plants multiply through cross-pollination between stamens and pistils; and most animals multiply through mating between males and females. In addition to these same-level interactions, the various levels of creation are linked to each other in a hierarchy centered on, human beings, as in food chains, for example. In this way, the diverse species, families and kingdoms of creation are connected to God and His purpose for creation through humans.


Furthermore, every created being exists through the maintenance of subject-object relations between its component parts. Thus, a human being maintains life through millions of subject-object relationships: between cells, organs, limbs, nerve and circulatory systems, and so on. The heart and lungs interact to bring oxygen into the bloodstream, while the arteries and veins circulate the blood throughout the body. The central and peripheral nervous systems coordinate the functions of the body, including the interaction of muscle and skeleton. In this example, nerves, directed by the brain, are subject and the muscles they control are their object. However, the muscles in turn are the subject of the bones. Every part of the human body fulfills its purpose through its subject-object relations with other parts.












Giving and Receiving Action

Through the action of the universal prime force, each subject is brought into a relationship with a given object to complete itself. Subjects and objects separated from each other in the creation are partial reflections of the unity of God, whereas joined in harmony they reflect, at their proper level, the complete unity of subject and object within God.

Subject and object need a common base, which is mutuality of characteristics and purpose, in order to interact. When they do establish a common base, through the action of universal prime force in each of them they create a relationship of giving and receiving energy from each other. This giving and receiving action draws the subject and object together, creating a unity that resembles the subject-object unity of the attributes of their Creator, God. Each finds completion through its relationship with the other.



When subjects and objects are empowered by the universal prime force to create harmonious relationships, they engage in giving and receiving action and generate all manner of manifest forces: electrical, mechanical, mental, emotional, etc. These are the substantial foundation for life itself: existence, action and multiplication. Prime force is the intangible source of life and universal prime force is the intangible foundation for life. The forces that result from giving and receiving action are the substantial foundation for life.

Existence and life are possible only when there is a flow of energy between subject and object, with both of them giving and receiving. Breathing would not work if humans only inhaled; circulation would not work if humans only had arteries to take blood from the heart to the body but lacked veins to return it to the heart. Thus all creation is maintained and develops through the giving and receiving between subjects and objects.


Many of the subject-object pairs and the forces they generate have been identified by science. For example, nuclear power, electricity, heat and light are energies produced by interaction between atoms or sub-atomic particles; gravitational energy is produced by the interaction between heavenly bodies, and so on. The foundations for the natural world are created when protons, neutrons and electrons, empowered by universal prime force, give and receive energy to form atoms which, in turn, give and receive electrical forces in the creation of molecules


The reproductive dimension of life is evident in the plant, animal and human kingdoms. In plants, stamens and pistils interact to produce the biological forces necessary for the creation of seeds. Male and female animals mate to produce offspring. Men and women are made by God as subjects and objects who are endowed with complementary characteristics, both internal and external, which enable them to form harmonious and productive couples. Man's spiritual, mental and physical masculinity is balanced perfectly by woman's spiritual, mental and physical femininity

In human interaction, giving and receiving is the basis for the creation of harmonious relationships. For example, the ideal teacher-student relationship is created when a student responds fully to the education offered by a teacher. Their interaction is initiated by the teacher giving and completed by the student responding.

On a wider scale, a leader in society gives direction and vision, winning the support of followers in the building of social structures and institutions. A national leader does the same for the whole nation. In every case, when an object, or objects, reciprocate the giving of a subject, interaction results and a unity of being is achieved. Whoever the partners, a relationship is initiated by giving.

It is a man's nature to seek completion through becoming one with a woman, while a woman's feminine nature seeks completion through union with a masculine subject. In perfect unity the two become as one, resembling the oneness of God. Since man and woman are the culmination of God's creation and the encapsulation of the physical and spiritual realms made by God, when they unite they become the completed image of God, the full embodiment of His attributes. The forces of giving and receiving action produced by their union are the foundation for their lives and for the creation of their family.
