The Delusion of All-Knowingness: From the Garden to the Tower to the Cloud


You’ll be just like God, knowing everything, ranging all the way from good to evil.”…Gen.3: 5

With the Internet, there is no longer an excuse for not knowing… B. Krzanich, CEO Intel

The Garden: All Knowingness and the delusion of Self-Providence

It was the best of times. The accounting provided by the Jewish Torah and Christian Bible indicates that long before such a formal construct as history had been codified, Sapiens (triune-man) had brought their unique giftedness fully to bear. Having been granted dominion over the material world, their souls were constrained only by the boundaries of their uniquely animated reason, imagination, interests, and creator-ability.

It was the worst of times. In the Garden, rather than a quest for new dimensions of Creator sanctioned dominion, sapiens desire for Creator like transcendence exposed their vulnerability to treachery. The father of deception counseled that All-Knowingness was but one bite away. Sapiens bite at All-Knowingness proved both catastrophic and generationally contagious, genetically encoding desire for creatoresque Self-Providence.

The Tower: All Knowingness and the delusion of Self-Sufficiency

It was the best of times. Sapiens, ensconced in a flood-free enclave, sought a symbol to undergird their resistance to divine direction to disperse. The Tower project symbolized permanence, possibly arresting the neurosis induced by the continuing phenomena of rain; the rainbow contract offered little consolation. The Tower provided scant strategic advantage – e.g. reconnaissance of storm clouds on the distant horizon; nor did it impart tactical efficacy – e.g. training to develop critical skills that might serve them well in the future. The Tower was a monument to the first Sapiens inspired permanent city-state.

It was the worst of times. Some aspirations inspire the onset of opiate-like addiction – which disengages spiritually gestated moral authority and imperils social and personal accountability. Sapiens, no less vulnerable to spiritual deception than ages earlier, determined they’d restore their divinely diminished creator-ability through enhanced collaboration. The Tower actually evidenced a new genetic mutation of an old sapiens weakness with contagion potential: Self-Sufficiency born of counterfeit All-Knowingness.

The Cloud: All Knowingness and the delusion of Self-Supremacy

It was the best of times. The sages of Melbourne, Palo Alto, Cern, Beijing, Tel Aviv, et al, synchronized their breathing as the technology mother ship arrived and breached the zone where virtual-digital-knowledge resides. This zone is the by-product of a Sapiens induced digital big bang, which formed a network-centric-ecosystem comprised of many interoperable jurisdictions, e.g. computing, communications, storage, big data, analytics, and applications. This distant digital relative of the analog Tower is called the Cloud.

Suddenly complexity became fast, free, easy… and invisible…T. L. Friedman1

The Cloud is delivering unprecedented benefit; it has brought huge global value directly to the desktop and smartphone, and similarly enabled individuals to broadly touch the outside world – e.g. this blog. Few products, services, relationships, or destinations, are beyond its reach. Many presumptively declare the Cloud as wise, declaring it the sovereign authority of who and when. Many believe that the emergence of quantum computers and artificial intelligence will enable the Cloud to better “amplify the power of machines, the power of one, the power of many, and the power of flows1“, advancing sapiens beyond Self-Providence and Self-Sufficiency, to the portal of Self-Supremacy.

It was the worst of times. The Cloud alone adjudicates digitally articulated policy in its own interest, e.g. elevating All-Knowingness over Personal-Privacy. Destitute of social or psychological discernment, the Cloud is wholly incapable of distinguishing those of noble intent from those of nefarious intent: governments in the name of national security and criminals for personal gain, competitors for strategic advantage and businesses for commercial leverage, and terrorist for political conquest and rebels for thrills. The Cloud enables little more than nominal attributes of privacy, by way of anonymous trusted-third-parties, proxies, and vulnerable security technology, of it’s choosing. It also offers the opportunity to surrender to Big Data and Analytics agency simply by clicking “I Agree”.

The Cloud is considered to be rapidly evolving from a kluge-of-capabilities to cogent-entity status; many believe it exhibits pseudo-sentient analytic proficiency. Nevertheless, the Cloud remains highly vulnerable to nefarious human agency, which uses it to alter past and present accounts to form a new you of their choosing, e.g. profiling. Often the Cloud is positioned where principles, not binary data, ought to moderate. The Cloud now undergirds political party hostilities by furnishing weapons grade accusations and innuendo; its social network agency has abated the tactile connectedness critical to maturation of inter-personal skills. The Cloud has no master, yet it remains connected to an evergreen supply of covert and clandestine information-nutrients. Laws, standards, and threats are powerless to thwart or restrain Cloud-sourced virtual-synthetic-facts.

Disaster or Doxology:

The view from above the Cloud: While deception dons coats of many colors, pride is the color it uses to subvert well-being and foment catastrophe. All-Knowingness was the shade of pride donned by deception in the Garden and Tower, and now the Cloud. In the Garden, deception championed Self-Providence; shame and eviction are what followed. In the Tower, deception held out the illusion of Self-Sufficiency; thereafter, diminished collaborative facility was necessary to thwart a new global contagion.

The Cloud – envisioned as master-servant of sapiens quest for All-Knowingness enabled Self-Providence and Self-Sufficiency – has been besieged by powerful and unrelenting cyber espionage, subversion, interloping, piracy, mass surveillance, and profiling. As in the Garden and Tower, the Cloud opines to discordant spiritual revelation and displaced moral integrity. While direct personal control of privacy and security would substantially thwart such Cloud misadventure, true resolution requires the Words of the Creator to reside in the Hearts of Sapiens – not acts of Congress, Courts, Corporations, or Churches.

A View from the Confluence of Faith and Science


Much appreciation to: Yuval Harari and Jared Diamond, Gerald Schroeder and Hue Ross, and Moses

Evolution by natural selection is one of the best-substantiated theories in science…Evolutionists

Only one text describes what scientists have since discovered – the Big Bang…Cosmologists

Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities… have been clearly seen …Creationist


Conscience (ethos), Prophecy (revelation), Reason (logic), and Acts (demonstration)

No matter the particular path(s) – only Faith begets Belief

Scientific discoveries continue to illuminate to controversial Beliefs

Question: Is it incongruous to re-examine faith-allied claims in the light of Science?


 Creationists provided Scientific guidance before Theological arguments

No matter the genesis of inspiration, whether – vision incited by revelation, reason conferred by science, or the natural entangled with the transcendental – faith must be cultivated to engender affection, and engaged to actualize potential. This precept is fundamental; everything that exist and everything we are derives from this TripleLux. It is expressed poignantly by the familiar affirmation – faith without works is dead; said in context – inspiration begets cultivation, which begets actualization, e.g. Creation.

Creation exudes Cultivation (synchronization) and Actualization (resiliency)

Question: What are some plausible explanations as to the Inspiration for creation?


Science provides systematic verification of facts, truths, and inference regarding faith

Observation of cultivation and examination of actualization have increased scientific knowledge regarding cosmology, ecology, and anthropology exponentially; inspiration was considered too nebulous for scientific analysis. Given the interdependency of these three high science disciplines, it is reasonable to conclude they share the same modus of inspiration. Prior to the confluence of these high science disciplines, creationism – presented in just thirty-one succinct verses – provided the only complimentary account. This scientific tsunami has given inescapable gravity to but one term, Creator.

Scientific Cosmology coincides with Creationism

Scientific Ecology coincides with Creationism

Question: Can Anthropology coincide with Cosmology/Ecology, but not Creationism?


 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…Gen. 1: 1-5

Cosmology is the scientific discipline that investigates the origin and development of the universe. While theories abound, the one exhibiting credible correlation between faith and reason is referred to as the Big Bang. Cosmologists describe the universe as the production of an intelligent beginner and a first cause event – from great nothingness.

The COBE and Hubble satellites enabled scientists to determine the precise tempo at which the universe transpired. In the only precise accounting of record, the six periods – evening (chaos – ereb) to morning (order – boqer) – to include a final period of reference (one earth orbit) – ranged from millions to but thousands of reference-based years. Corroboration and illumination of this written account by credible mathematical and cosmogenesis analysis gives rise to but one description – Creator.

Only one Beginning and Ending coincide with the Creation of the Universe

Question: If Creation of the Universe was the Beginning, what was the End objective?


God called the vault “sky” (3.8B yrs.) – God called the dry ground “land”… the gathered waters he called “seas”… Let the land produce vegetation (2.0B yrs.) – Let there be lights in the sky to separate the day from the night (1.0B yrs.) – Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky (0.5B yrs.) – Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds (0.2B yrs.) Gen. 1: 6-25

Ecology is the scientific discipline that investigates organisms, physical surroundings, and the consequences of their interaction. Analysis of geophysical and fossil data has convinced scientists that the cooling of the earth and the appearance of water and sunshine proffered conditions conducive to the consequential-evolution of biological organisms. No matter debates regarding consequential-resiliency (e.g. global warming), the earth, atmosphere, plants, and animals form a highly complex relational-ecosystem, which boundaries must be understood and respected.

Elementary science, observation, and intuition, embolden the presumption that within the relational-ecosystem the simple gives rise to the more complex. However, molecular biologists have discovered single cell plants with hundreds of times the genetic information per cell as mammals, but lack a plausible explanation as to the origin of either genome. No matter the possible scientific incongruity, the quest for planets evidencing hydro potentiality advances. Only one explanation coincides with earth’s genetically rich relational-ecosystem and congruent cosmological periodicityCreator.

The Biblical account attests that biological organisms bringing forth after their own kind

Question: Does 2B yrs. of composition within the boundaries of kind refute Evolution?


Anthropology is the scientific discipline that studies human beings and cultures. It is perhaps the most intriguing of all human interests, besides critical life saving therapies and protocols. Who are we (relationship), why are we here (purpose), and where did we come from (origin)? While relationship and purpose harbor overarching insight, for context and consistency we’ll follow the trail of origin to its intersection with the others.


Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground…Gen. 2: 7

Biologically, modern humans are a part of the Homo genus and Sapiens species, of which there were many other species to include Erectus, Ergaster, and Neanderthal; only Homo sapiens survive. Credible scientific investigations repeatedly confirm the sudden not consequential-evolutionary appearance of Homo sapiens. Evolutionists continue to search for a direct link to other Homo genus, contending that Homo sapiens are mammal class evolutionary organisms, and like plants and other animals, are the progeny of the same relational-ecosystem. Further scientific scrutiny reveals that Homo sapiens genetic code is hugely different from other Homo species.

Unlike other Homo genus, Sapiens are the Creators direct handiwork, not consequential-evolution

Question: Why is it critical that Evolutionists directly link all Homo geniuses?


Then the Lord…breathed into his nostrils the breath of life …Gen. 2: 7

Despite smaller stature and smaller brains than Neanderthals, Sapiens evidence incomparably advanced cognition and imagination, exhibited by no other Homo genus. The agility biologist, psychologist, and social scientists describe as super-intelligence, derives from impartation of prescient-connection unbounded by time, space, or matter.

The Creator breathed (imparted) His own eternal life spirit into Homo sapiens, not oxygen


 …and the man became a living being…Gen. 2: 7

Homo sapiens uniqueness – the ability to see what did not exist as though it were, to modify ecosystem relationships to their own advantage, to achieve sufficient caloric intake in a fraction of the time and effort required by other Homo species, and to travel the breath of the planet – derives not from consequential-evolution, but impartation of spirit and then animation of reason, interests, and creativity, this screams Creator.

Th Creator’s life spirit transformed the corporeal and synaptic into the conscious and sentient

Question: What does the gift of Soul and Spirit suggest about Relationship and Purpose?
