The Ultimate Truth : Chapter II
(Facts & Fiction)

When talking about the ultimate truth we can't afford to miss three terms in particular: God, Divinity and Infinity.let us first look at the term infinity. In simple language it means: endless, without beginning, without end. But to a mathematician it means a lot more and he fails to apply his regular calculations and formulas to the concept of infinity. For example you cannot add anything to infinity and you cannot deduct anything from It. Similarly you cannot divide or multiply infinity to any number. In all these cases the result will invariably be infinity. Man cannot imagine the application of the concept of infinity to any other field other than the universe or at the most imaginary concept of counting from 1 to infinity, which too practically an impossibility. Not only that, the mathematicians have hit upon another corollary I.e. the fractional numbers between any two whole numbers ,let us say 2 and 3,is also infinite. In the domain of infinity a curve no longer remains a curve and it coincides with a straight line, which again does not appeal to the human mind that cannot fully comprehend the concept of infinity. All calculations involving infinity are beyond the scope of man. We may tell, to some extent, the shape size and weight of some heavenly bodies but no scientist can tell the number of these heavenly bodies. Nobody knows whether the dome that encompasses the infinite heavenly bodies is round , square, rectangular, cubicle or anything other than all this. These facts alone are enough to show the helplessness of all scientists and knowledgeable persons of the world. So the poor fellow leaves such things to be handled by some power, which man calls Almighty or God.

Now next and the most important point to be considered is about the existence of God. By and large this point seems to be settled as majority of the people in the world have a strong conviction about the existence of God, it is a different matter that for some God is manifest ( in physical form ) and for others He is unmanifest I.e.without any physical form. Many claim to have seen God, claim to be in regular contact and communion with Him and also promise to show Him to any seeker. The group of these people is collectively referred to as THEISTS. There are others who are of the strong opinion that there is no God and they are labelled as ATHE ISTS. And still there is the third group that does not align itself to either of the two groups and prefers itself to be labelled as AGNOSTICS. Whatever position is taken by any person with respect to the existence of God is not of much consequence but the arguments and disputes about the existence of God is sheer wastage of time and energy that will not take people to any conclusion whatsoever. But one thing is certain that we shall have to coin some mutually acceptable term in linguistic parameters to whom we can leave the unexplained riddles and enigmas about the origin of this universe and its unfathomable magnitude.

Call God by any other name
GOD remains God
The nomenclature can't change
The essence of a substance

We may argue about the existence of GOD but there is no denying about the existence of DIVINITY that is all pervasive in the universe.
