"shall a man leave his father and mother" - A Lesson of Prime Numbers


   A Lesson of Prime Numbers

There is something that cannot be foreseen but will surely happen in this world.

From a classical point of view, if one can get all the past information related to a system, he can predict future states of the system.  However, in modern physics, this belief is not sustained.  There is the law of probability in deciding occurrence of events.  So, we can only predict the future under conditions based on probability.

However, there is another way of denying determinism.

It is related to prime numbers.  When and what prime number will appear in the series of numbers (integers) cannot be predicted based on information of all the numbers preceding to the prime number.  To check if a new number is a prime number, you have to make some calculation; you cannot identify a prime number just by referring to all the numbers that precede it.

For example, if you know all the numbers from 1 to 10, such information cannot predict that 11 is a prime number.  If you know all the numbers from 1 to 100, such knowledge does not help you predict that 101 is a prime number.

In the series of integers, prime numbers suddenly appear without an omen; there are no formulas and rules that tell how prime numbers are distributed in the series of integers.

So, life may be liken to the series of integers.  People live every day, while accumulating past knowledge.  But suddenly one day they meet a situation where past knowledge is not useful to understand it.  It is a primary-number situation.

But as God created this universe and world, He also created the infinite sequence of integers.  God knows where and what prime numbers are situated in the sequence.  Accordingly, God only knows what events will appear in life of people.

In this context the mankind cannot be a ruler of the universe.  We have to be humble, because we are subject to God's wisdom that created all the prime numbers we cannot know in principle and in a practical sense.

"Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement" - In Hopes for Three Years

Fukushima City, Japan

In Hopes for Three Years

Suppose that there are particles of the same type in a limited space.  They freely move around, so that two particles collide with each other sometimes.  But there is also a chance that three particles collide simultaneously.  

In a certain condition, according to an analysis, the probability of three particle collision is one thousandth of that of two particle collision.

For a man to behave good as taught by God, three conditions must be met: recognition of value of behaving good in principle, personal conditions for behaving good, and the will to behave good.  If any two of the three factors are realized simultaneously every day, it is only once in 1,000 days or almost three years that all these conditions are met.

So, we can only expect an ordinary man to behave good as taught by God once in three years.

Conversely, something very bad might happen once in three years in the human world due to accumulation of evil actions of people.

For example, Christ Jesus is said to have preached in almost only three years.  The worst conditions must have met at the third year of His preaching.  However, on the third day from His crucifixion, Christ Jesus resurrected.

In Japan, there is a saying that if you live even on a rock for three years, you can achieve something.

So, entertain hopes for at least three years if you are in a difficult situation.

Mar 10:3 And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
Mar 10:4 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
Mar 10:5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.

"he gave them power against unclean spirits" - Faith in God, Fear of God

Around Tokyo

Faith in God, Fear of God

Christ Jesus said that people with faith in God were like lams in a pack of wolves.

Conversely, people without faith in God would try to abuse and harm others to satisfy their desire, which believers would never do.  And, how badly they abuse and harm others is unpredictable and limitless.  There are many hidden atrocities conducted by citizens onto others.  The human world is full of danger.

The issue is that wolves do not realize how cruel they are, so that those without faith do not realize how cruel they are to others as well as to themselves.

But God did not give intellectual and spiritual ability to the mankind so that they become intellectual and spiritual wolves.  There is a purpose for God's creating the mankind with higher ability.  But if the mankind abuses it, they must be destroyed by God.

Maybe what we need is the fear of God in this regard as well as faith in God.

Indeed, who can stand before anger of God that the mankind is incurring due to their betrayal of God in this context?
