Empowerment versus Natural Law
Updated: 06/09/2021

Natural Law

Some that are initially exposed to the concept of primal creative empowerment dismiss it disdainfully as "magic" that negates "natural law". What is being proposed here in terms of empowerment is not a wish to dispose of natural law, because that CONVENTION serves as a great, stable foundation for the forms, structures and activities in the physical universe. Natural law is wondrous in its design and scope of possible developments, and many scientists are continually amazed and compelled to study aspects of it for a lifetime. It should be noted that the physical realm was designed by the creator to work by inviolate law. However, the spiritual realm was NOT designed, but is an extension of the purpose, values and character of God, and works by principles.

Why would the Creator create something restrictive,
larger than himself, and then surrender to its dominance?

However, many materialists inadvertently think that nothing can suspend or override physical law, and this is essentially a materialistic philosophy. Yet, if this were true, then we–including the very creator of natural law–must surrender to it and must live throughout eternity under it, live at the effect of it. Why, we may ask, would the creator agency ever do such a thing as create a system that could control or oppress even itself?

It is a fallacy that "natural law" is ordinate or supreme because intelligence and will ARE ordinate, and the way the universe works is SUBORDINATE to this intelligence and will. Is not our concept of natural law based on our current experience of it? Is not our experience and concept of it limited or incomplete? Is not our concept of it ONLY an extraction based on this current experience? We cannot arbitrarily override it; no one can, but the agency that holds the power is not totally subject to its dominion. This is easy to see if the material universe is a projection from the collective mind. That mind in unison would be able to override it and even change it if that is so desired.

Another way to think about it is this: The software engineers may develop a computer system that is impervious to change or interference by outsiders, but may build a backdoor into it to change things if they so desire. And, they can always override or replace it the same way that they installed it. We have no business thinking that the creator of the universe is stupid, less capable or has less foresight than we do! There is no larger-than-God law, natural or otherwise, and thinking so is just a version of sin.

This elevation of natural law to being absolute or supreme also makes technology and technological development–the incremental solving of problems to improve life within natural law through techniques or technical machines and tools–the answer to every material challenge, and thus also our ultimate process for progress, ergo our salvation. Not a nice thought!


The author's vision put forth is that in a healed reality where we have primal creative empowerment, we will rely upon and use natural law unless it is too limiting and we are motivated to override it. Remember that for anything significant it will take the agreement and probably the involvement of all the other human family members affected. Constrained by common sense, we will in freedom have great latitude to conform to OR override natural law. It would seem that the overriding of natural law should never be capricious.

Every human being has a natural and legitimate desire for empowerment, not being TOTALLY subject to nor the victim of natural law. It is the thinking of this site that natural law is not absolute, and it can even be changed if someone comes up with desirable improvements and the empowered citizens of the universe agree to it.
