How do we know that the universe has laws? Because everywhere we see organization, we see patterns.How do we know that the universe is based on consciousness? Because before there can be a manifested result, there must be a mind or consciousness to envision it. Before there can be an object there must be an observer. And therefore, before there was a creation there was a mind to imagine it.How do we know that free will exists? Because in a universe founded on free will, rules or law provide a way for each individual to express themselves fully. The fact that novelty or uniqueness exists everywhere, that the universe is a diverse unity, is proof that free will reaches it’s highest expression through recognition of, and harmonization with, divine law.
