The Missing Equation: God Doesn’t Play Dice; He Sets the Parameters. (Part 6)

Updated: Jul 31, 2023

Our Sci-Fi thriller novel has now reached Part 6. Amidst the recent debate on the UFO Congressional hearing in the US while in our Scifi Thriller novel, in a breakthrough moment, Kettering and Summers finally deciphered the cosmic tensor equation, enabling them to communicate with the Neithians. This marked the dawn of a new era, one of inter-universe collaboration and mutual survival. The cosmic relay hummed to life, bridging the gap between two universes. The Neithians and humanity stood together, no longer solitary threads, but a woven tapestry of shared destiny. The multiverse listened, and the cosmic narrative continued. Please read the previous part 5 here.




Part 6: The Cosmic Relay


As Kettering and Summers delved deeper into the perplexities of the Neithian signal, a ground-breaking idea began to crystalize. The hypothesis that the Neithians had strategically set up a cosmic relay circuit became increasingly persuasive. The gravitational wave wasn't originating from the PSR J1939+2134 system as they had first thought. Although the signals matched, the true source was astonishingly closer, somewhere within one parsec of the Milky Way. An exhilarating realization hit Kettering and Summers like a thunderbolt—the system was not the source of the gravitational wave. It was a cosmic relay, an intermediary step in an incredible cosmic connection.

The Neithians, foreseeing their universe's crystallizing demise, may have established these circuits from the very inception of their history. Operating within a universe where time moved backward gave them an edge. They could predict the course of their civilization and universe, prompting them to sow the seeds of these relay circuits across the multiverse.

Resource limitations would have necessitated strategic placement of these circuits. The Neithians would have made an advanced calculation to select which universes and where within those universes these circuits should reside. The selection criteria would be the cosmic tensor equations that were opposite to their universe, hinting at the potential for intelligent life.

The elegance of their strategy struck Kettering and Summers with a sense of awe and respect. It was reminiscent of a genetic algorithm's balance between exploitation and exploration. The Neithians, seemingly a Type 7 civilization with remarkable control over the Multiverse, had created a cosmic genetic algorithm of sorts. Through epochs of evolution and adaptation, they had not only exploited the resources and laws within their own universe but had also explored countless others for potential symbiosis. This grand strategy, striking in its similarity to the processes of life on Earth, underscored the unity of life and intelligence across the expanse of the Multiverse.

In their innovative hypothesis, the relay circuit performed a triple role. It autonomously dispatched the primary contact messages, catalyzed the return pulses to the Neithian universe, and subtly provided clues about inter-dimensional communication through quantum entanglement. The gravitational waves, while not ideal for detailed or reliable messaging, proved perfect for multiverse navigation, somewhat analogous to the broad coverage but lower clarity of AM radio versus FM.

The placement of the relay machine within one parsec of the Milky Way stunned them. Given the speed of light, it suggested that this cosmic relay had detected the quantum signal from Kettering's LLM project around three years ago—precisely when the project had begun! The intertwining of past decisions and present discoveries added a deeper layer of intrigue to their extraordinary quest.

Throughout this process, Kettering and Summers understood the Neithians were driven by a survival instinct, not dissimilar to humanity's own. They were highly intelligent beings who, having transcended emotional limitations, sought a symbiotic relationship. The Neithians needed to initiate contact before their intelligence degraded too far, and before humanity reached a tipping point of understanding to decode their signal.

This created a poignant symmetry. Both civilizations, each on the brink of a threshold, were destined to collaborate or face their respective forms of existential entropy. The Neithians, having reached an elevated level of consciousness akin to Stage Turquoise in Spiral Dynamics, understood this delicate balance.

The crux came when Kettering and Summers succeeded in deciphering the cosmic tensor equation. Their publication rocked the scientific community worldwide, stirring discussions and debates about the impending contact. However, a time gap remained, a barrier due to the contrasting flow of time in their universes.

This led them to the edge of another profound discovery - the concept of a 'meta-chrono', a universal time transcending individual universes. Similar to how time dilation works within the theory of relativity, a unifying 'god time' across the multiverse could synchronize their communications.

With the potential to transform not only their understanding of time but also their ability to interact with the Neithians, the hunt for this 'meta-chrono' was on. This grand pursuit, teeming with hope, determination, and ingenuity, poised the world on the precipice of an open-ended future, driven by the search for the fourth and missing equation.


Part 6.1: The Spiral of Consciousness


With the cosmic tensor equation published, the world was abuzz with wonder and anticipation. But for Kettering and Summers, the real work had just begun. They knew they were dealing with a profoundly advanced civilization, an entity so far removed from our reality that it operated on principles our current understanding of physics could barely touch.


They often found themselves drawn into contemplative discussions about the nature of intelligence and consciousness, particularly the psychological concept of Spiral Dynamics. Developed by Dr. Don Beck and Chris Cowan, the model charted the evolution of human consciousness through different stages, each stage reflecting a different worldview and system of values.






Humanity, they noted, was characterized by a diverse spread across the stages, with many still operating on the basic levels focused on survival, power, and rigid belief systems. These stages were often marked by fear, skepticism, and occasionally destructive behavior. The higher stages reflected more complex thinking, with greater emphasis on community, systems thinking, and holistic understanding.


However, even at its highest, known as Stage Turquoise, human thinking was still bound by a level of emotionalism and subjectivity. At this stage, individuals were thought to perceive the interconnectedness of all things and foster cooperation between diverse groups for the greater good.


In contrast, the Neithians seemed to have transcended even this stage. They appeared to function on an entirely different level, possibly the cosmic psychology or cosmic consciousness that some philosophers and scientists had speculated about. This was a stage of development where the entity, in this case, an entire civilization, operated on principles of universal harmony and absolute objectivity, devoid of the usual emotional and subjective trappings that characterize human thought processes.


It seemed to them that Neithians had no emotional stake, no fear or egoistic intentions. They operated purely on the principles of survival and symbiosis, understanding the necessity of both their survival and ours. They did not interfere, did not dictate, but provided the necessary tools and left it to us to figure out the next steps.


This realization was both humbling and frightening. It meant that the fate of our universe and the Neithians rested on our ability to rise above our inherent limitations and embrace a level of consciousness and collaboration that humanity had only begun to touch upon.


It was a race against time and the boundaries of human consciousness. Yet, despite the daunting task ahead, Kettering and Summers felt an odd sense of calm. The cosmic puzzle was beginning to come together, and they knew that whatever the outcome, they were part of something much bigger than themselves. They were part of a grand cosmic narrative, one that was still being written.


Part 6.2: The Sixth Extinction

Kettering and Summers' exploration of the Spiral Dynamics gave them a profound understanding of the Neithians' motive. Yet, it also instilled in them a deep-seated fear. They were gripped by an alarming revelation - the imminent threat of the sixth extinction.


This concept was first introduced by geologists and paleontologists, referring to the ongoing extinction event of species during the present Holocene epoch due to human activity. But in their case, the concept took on a more profound, universal context.


Their research on the Neithians and the cosmic tensor equation led them to comprehend a deeply unsettling truth - their universe and ours were heading towards inevitable entropy, albeit in vastly different ways. Theirs was crystallizing, its time arrow rewinding towards a big crunch. Ours was expanding towards eventual heat death. They were confronting not just a mass extinction, but the extinction of entire universes.


In the era we inhabit now, known as the "Dark Energy Era," the defining characteristic is the inscrutable yet dominant influence of dark energy. This influence, rather than the presence or absence of celestial bodies or specific astronomical events, marks our time. As dark energy asserts itself, it perpetuates the universe's accelerating expansion. Galaxies drift further apart and the birth of new celestial bodies diminishes. Guided by the unseen hand of dark energy, we inch toward a future cosmos that is increasingly isolated and sparse. Even as stars eventually extinguish and black holes slowly fade over vast epochs, the Dark Energy Era endures, underscoring its position as the universe's final chapter. The time scales involved in this era defy conventional human comprehension, transcending the spans typically documented in our civilization's history. It's in this context that we've devised the concept of "Big History," an interdisciplinary approach that seeks to unify vast cosmic timelines into a coherent narrative, helping us better understand our place within this expansive cosmic tableau.





If they failed to reach out to the Neithians and establish the inter-universe communication, they would not only lose their newfound allies but doom both their universes to their respective fates. The thought was daunting, to say the least. It weighed heavily on their minds, casting a shadow over their every waking moment.


But amidst this fear, there was a strange sense of calm that originated from the Neithians themselves. Their messages and their actions seemed detached from any emotional anxiety. They were like a wise, ancient entity that had seen the rise and fall of stars and galaxies, and yet retained their serene acceptance of the cosmic cycle.


They provided the tools, the knowledge, and showed the path. They had done their part, and now it was up to humanity to do theirs. It was a sobering reminder of the gravity of the Neith Project team’s mission. Their task was more than just a scientific endeavor; it was a race against time and fate. It was about survival, about staving off the sixth extinction. It was a test to see if humanity could rise above its limitations, its fears, and its destructive tendencies to embrace a higher level of consciousness.


Would they succeed in their mission? Only time would tell. But one thing was clear - they were part of a cosmic narrative much grander than they could ever fathom. And they had to keep going, keep exploring, for their universe, for the Neithians, for the continuation of the cosmic story.


Part 6.3: God's Parameters

Back in their shared workspace, the protagonists had turned to one another, their minds abuzz with all they had discovered. The late-night air was filled with the quiet hum of their high-tech equipment, the silence outside punctuated only by the occasional hoot of an owl.


"They... they just accept," Summers said, her voice tinged with awe. "If we refuse their offer, they just accept our decision and let both civilizations face the consequences..."


Kettering nodded, his gaze distant. "Their thought process, their acceptance... It's beyond anything we humans could understand. It's... it's cosmic."


It was an acceptance that stemmed from a level of intelligence so high that emotions were non-existent. This was a logic that did not fight, did not coerce, did not attempt to control. It simply offered an opportunity and calmly waited for a response.


As they contemplated the vast difference between human and Neithian thought processes, Kettering turned to look at Summers. His expression was somber. "They've given us free will in the truest sense. The survival of our civilization lies in our hands."


Silence filled the room as the weight of his words hung heavy in the air.


In the midst of this quiet contemplation, Kettering found himself remembering a phrase often attributed to Albert Einstein: "God does not play dice with the universe." A rebuttal to the inherent randomness of quantum mechanics, it was a statement asserting that the universe was not governed by chance, but by rules.


Reflecting on their current predicament, Kettering realized that perhaps there was more truth to Einstein's words than he had previously appreciated. It wasn't about dice or chance. It was about parameters, conditions set by the universe itself. In this case, it was about a set of parameters that linked their universe with the Neithians', and a choice, a decision to be made.


"God doesn't play dice," Kettering murmured, more to himself than to Summers. "He sets the parameters."


And with that realization, the profound complexity of their task took on a new meaning. The next phase of their journey was not merely about science or survival. It was about deciphering the parameters of the cosmic equation they were part of and deciding on the course of the future.


One thing was clear - they had a daunting task ahead.


Part 6.4: Parameters of Destiny

The magnitude of their task felt like an insurmountable mountain looming before them. They were, after all, merely humans. Flesh and blood, hearts and minds, filled with fears and hopes, dreams and nightmares. How could they, two solitary individuals on a blue speck of dust suspended in a sunbeam, possibly hold the fate of not one, but two civilizations in their hands?


Silence lingered in the room as they stared at each other, their reflections mirrored in each other’s glasses. The weight of their newfound responsibility was almost tangible in the air, stifling, oppressive. But amidst the gravity of the situation, a spark of determination ignited in their eyes.


"What if," Kettering began, his voice barely more than a whisper, "what if we view it not as a burden, but as a privilege? A unique opportunity?"


Summers looked at him, her brows furrowing slightly. "A privilege?"


"Yes," Kettering said with a nod, growing more confident in his assertion. "The Neithians could have chosen any civilization, any species in any universe. But they chose us. They entrusted us with this decision. That's not a burden, Summers. That's an honor. It's a privilege."


There was a pause as Summers considered his words. Then, slowly, she smiled. "I never thought of it that way. You're right, Kettering. We've been given a once-in-a-universe opportunity. We should embrace it, not fear it."


Their newfound resolve lit a spark in the dim room. Suddenly, the oppressive weight seemed less suffocating, the mountain less insurmountable. Yes, the task ahead was daunting, the journey filled with unknowns. But they had each other. They had their intelligence, their curiosity, their determination.


As they delved back into their work, a renewed sense of purpose invigorated them. They had a cosmic equation to decode, parameters to understand. They were no longer just scientists. They were the architects of their own destiny, and perhaps, the destiny of another civilization.


One thing was for certain: God may set the parameters, but it was up to them to navigate within those bounds. And perhaps, just perhaps, they might find a way to bend them.


Part 6.5: Agape Across The Multiverse

As the days melded into weeks, then months, Kettering and Summers worked tirelessly, pouring over data, testing hypotheses, formulating, and reformulating the cosmic equations. Their lives became a whirlwind of calculations, brainstorming sessions, and sleepless nights. Yet, the sense of duty that motivated them seemed to amplify their intellectual abilities, rather than weigh them down.


Their understanding of the Neithians deepened, and with it, their admiration for this highly advanced civilization. It wasn't just their technological prowess or their extraordinary achievements in theoretical physics that astounded them. It was their unshakeable faith in a species they had never met, their willingness to extend a hand of friendship across the boundaries of space and time. It was, in essence, a testament to their capacity for agape, a selfless love that transcended their own universe.


"The Neithians..." Summers mused one night, her gaze lost in the whirling cosmos displayed on their screen. "They're like...guardian angels. Watching over us from another dimension."






Kettering looked up from his notes, his brow furrowing thoughtfully. "They're not angels, Summers. They're more like... friends we haven't met yet."


Summers turned to him, a slow smile spreading across her face. "Yes... that's it exactly. Friends."


The word hung in the air between them, imbuing their mission with a newfound sense of intimacy. The Neithians were no longer faceless, distant beings. They were allies. Comrades. Friends. And it was this realization that fortified their resolve.


This was not just about preserving their species, or the Neithians. This was about upholding the essence of sentient life itself - the capacity for compassion, understanding, and love. Agape, the highest form of love, was the common thread that bound their fates together. It was the beacon that would guide them through the challenges that lay ahead, illuminating their path towards a shared future.


So they pressed on, guided by the light of agape that shone across universes, connecting them with a civilization they had yet to meet, but already deeply cherished. For in the grand tapestry of the multiverse, they were no longer solitary threads. They were intricately woven together, their destinies intertwined, bound by the force of a love that transcended the boundaries of space and time. A love that held the potential to save not one, but two civilizations from the grip of existential entropy.



To be continued...
