God is the Universe


God did not create the Universe because God is the Universe. Both terms refer to the Totality of all that is. Totality can have no cause outside itself. The enterprise of science is to understand the physical structure of the Universe (space, time, energy, matter) including its fundamental laws or modes of
behaviour. The enterprise of religion is to determine whether and in what way our perception that consciousness (intentionality and awareness) is fundamental to the Universe is true and how that fundamental consciousness relates to our individual consciousness.
