The Trinity - E= mc^2 (Sonnet)

" God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are One and the same and all three are just different forms of energy. "



The Trinity - E= mc^2 (Sonnet) 

(Three separate or interchangeable entities under one Godhead)


where Energy = God,
mass = Jesus Christ,
Holy Spirit = (Speed of light)^2

The ball of light that sweeps the sky may be
transformed to Energy for they are one.
We cannot look upon it maybe He
said: 'Do not look directly at the Sun.'

And so, He came as Mass and briefly stayed
among us advocating truth and love,
then He was resurrected on that day,
transfigured to the Father high above.

We'll soon expire into spheres of light,
as Mass reverts back to pure Energy.
We'll learn why Einstein's formula was right,
and comprehend his depth of theory.

Each moon now formed contains the soul of one,
redeemed in revolutions 'round the Son.

    Outback, you are correct. That which is given can surely be taken away.

    So, to counter that don't accept anything from anyone. No gifts. LOL!

    A fine write Tamara. yet Einstein is suspect to me. 'Great men are not always wise (or correct)'. He did not truly believe in a personal God or Christianity, though having tons of worldly wisdom. This is how I see it.

    • Tamara Beryl Latham - The Poet

      Yes, you are correct. Einstein did not believe in a personal God (Jesus) and that is why he didn't equate his formula to God as the source of all Energy, matter and light. He figured out all three were necessary, but didn't equate mass (matter) to Jesus. Thi is the personal God I believe He was referring to, not the God of the Universe (God the Father). Remember, Einstein commented, "God doesn't play dice with the Universe." Therefore, he did believe in a God of the universe, but not a personal God, like Jesus. This is what, I believe he meant.

      What I have shown is God the Father exists as all three in different forms (Energy, Light, Matter).

      Remember, God in the flesh (He wasn't called Jesus at that time) visited Abraham at Mamre. There were three men, two were angels and the third was God in the flesh (Jesus). The two angels went ahead to save Lot and his family and the third person (God in the flesh) destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

        Thanks Tamara.


        Enjoyed very much...I believe in God and that we will be fine as long as we give everything up to him ...Jesus was only ONE person who had his consciousness...there have been THOUSANDS since and there will be THOUSANDS more...especially in this day and ager.. Messiah is a concept...NOT ONE MAN....Great work though...Outback always has comments that are both thought provoking and often HILARIOUS...I love to hear from him when he comments on my work...hich is only HERE AND THERE I wish he would read them all...anyway....take carexxxooo

          Thank you so much Jason for offering your thoughts. I'll have to check out your poetry when I reply to quite a few posts.

          Each of us has a different concept of God and the pathway to an eternal existence and my theory is no greater than yours or anyone else on the planet.

          Outback questioned me copyrighting, but I failed to explain, when I first came up with that theory it was back in the late 70s and told an off-Broadway playwright about it and he said, "That's a great theory, I should steal it from you." Then years later (1996) when I wrote the poem (initially titled "Chameleon Sun" ) I copyrighted it along with several other poems that were to be in my book. So, one copyright for several poems. After that (2007) I designed a card with the photo of Shroud Jesus on the front and the E=-mc^2, Energy=God, mass = Jesus Christ, etc. So I had to apply for a new copyright because it was a card. Thi is the reason I include the copyrights on the poem now, because there are two versions.

          I should have explained that to Outback.

          Thanks again Jason. I love your avatar. I had a similar one on the first poetry book I self-published at Kinkos. I gave them all away for free. I don't think I ever sold any of my poetry. Take care! 🙂

        • Tamara Beryl Latham - The Poet

          No, you are mistaken. I never said the universe could be copyrighted.

          As well, I never stated what the global churches or governments are doing is correct. I believe that world governments are corrupt.

          Yet, having stated all that, I believe in Jesus. He has never steered me wrong and. in truth, He saved me from being mugged one Winter's friday night in New York.

          I may lose faith in everything associated with this world, but I will never lose faith in Jesus.

          A wonderful weaving of faith and reason in your sonnet Tamara. Einstein and Father Georges Lemaitre (Big Bang) were friends proving that two people with different cosmologies can still get along!

          • Tamara Beryl Latham - The Poet

            Thank you, Gary. I appreciate your input.

            I noticed you attended the Univ. of Texas at Austin. One of my co-workers from two decades ago now teaches Chemistry there. Small world. 🙂

            • Gary Edward Geraci

              Ah yes Tamara; I had a wonderful chemistry class there sometime around 1997, I think. I didn’t go back to college untill I was 30 and graduated in 1999 at the old age of 35.

            • Gary Edward Geraci

              So you and I can also differ and still be friends. My understanding of the Trinity parallels a position first “intimated by Plato and carried to fruition by Boethius, Augustine, and Aquinas in their treatises on the Trinity. Bernard Lonergan and Karl Rahner articulate it in more contemporary terms and concepts.” Spitzer’s “The Soul’s Upward Yearning: Clues to Our Transcendent Nature from Experience and Reason”: “an uncaused cause must be unrestricted and absolutely simple, then it can be in perfect relationship to itself (like an act of self-consciousness) where THERE IS NO DIFFERENTIATION OF PARTS, but only differences in relationships within its self-reflective act. (Ibid, emphasis in caps is mine).

              • Tamara Beryl Latham - The Poet

                Interesting how many scholars of the past have defined their various views referencing the relationship of science and religion.

                • Gary Edward Geraci

                  It was born out of necessity after our atheistic brother and sisters in science began to declare the two incompatible...

                • Gary Edward Geraci

                  “A brain or a computer cannot generate a completely self-transparent act of thinking, because they are restricted in their activities and operations and in their physical structures and laws, including quantum activities, structures, and laws. No amount of complexity of restricted parts will ever be able to generate an unrestricted act of mentation, because in their totality they will always be restricted.” (Ibid). Energy, Mass, and the Speed of Light constant would fall into the above as “restricted parts” - each caused by God.

                  • Tamara Beryl Latham - The Poet

                    Do you remember Carl Sagan's limerick about traveling faster than the speed of light.

                    "There was a young lady named Bright
                    who traveled much faster than light.
                    She set out one day
                    in a relative way
                    and returned on the previous night."

                    Well, let us suppose the Holy Spirit is representative of the speed of light, rather than Einstein's constant.

                    Traveling faster than light would have enabled God (in the form of the Holy Spirit) to construct the world in 6 days, as emphasized in the bible.

                    With that in mind is it possible the speed of light is not always a constant. What about faster than light travel? If this becomes possible would the speed of light still be 3 x 10 ^8 m/sec?

                    So, just my opinion, the Holy Spirit travels faster than the speed of Light.

                    I believe all three, Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one and the same, were responsible for the creation of this earth and will be the driving force in its destruction and the formation of a new earth.

                    With regard to the bible, three men visited Abraham at Mamre. Two were angels who went ahead to save Lot and his family and the third was God in the flesh (who we call Jesus today) who destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

                    God also appeared to Moses in the form of Energy (fire) at the burning bush.

                    So, my view may be different from others.

                    Thanks for reading and offering such an intelligent response on the sonnet. I appreciate it. 🙂

                    • Gary Edward Geraci

                      In all fairness Tamara, yes there is always room for multiple interpretations and for a “maybe this” or “maybe that” perspective. Catholics haven’t always gotten it right either; history will confirm. The Church even gives us the freedom to choose “Young Earth” or evolutionary “Old Earth.” Outside divine revelation, we believe philosophy the “King” and theology the “Queen” and many substantive and enlightening works are out there; a few I’ve encountered and I pray the Holy Spirit will guide me to many more. Peace and blessings my friend.
