The Art of Seeing - Glimpse of Infinity

The Art of Seeing: Opening Prayer

Who is like you, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders (Exodus 15:11)? You are the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. You remain faithful forever (Psalm 146:6). You uphold the cause of the oppressed and give food to the hungry (Psalm 146:7). You have said, "Seek my face." My heart says to you, "Your face, LORD, do I seek." Hide not your face from me. Turn not your servant away in anger, O you who have been my help. Cast me not off; forsake me not, O God of my salvation (Psalm 27:8-9)! Blessed be Your glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with Your glory! Amen and Amen (Psalm 72:19)!

How much can we actually see?

We make life changing decisions every single day based on what we can see. So here's a question: If you took the entire electromagnetic spectrum of light — radio waves, microwaves, infrared waves, visible light rays, ultraviolet rays, x-rays, and gamma rays—and you stretched that spectrum like a measuring stick from the city of Los Angeles all the way to the city of New York, how much of that spectrum do you think you could see? The answer...

Introduction to a Biblical Understanding of Light

The Bible provides us with an absolutely stunning account of light. In the Old Testament (which was written in Hebrew between ~1500 BC and ~400 BC), the Bible gives an account of light in its visible form with very strong hints at what’s coming later on in the New Testament (which was written in Greek between ~30 AD and ~100 AD), when the full Light (in Jesus) is revealed to the world.

Unchangeable Light

Sir Issac Newton was the first person to scientifically identify that white light (visible light) also contains colors. Newton placed a prism in a room and passed a beam of light through it. He discovered what we now know as the spectrum—think colors of the rainbow—starting at red and ending at magenta. He then took another prism and redirected all of the beams back through it, recombining them back into pure white light.

The Color Spectrum is Significant

It’s no coincidence that the visible light color spectrum is made up of one (1) ultra-color (pure white) which contains three (3) primary colors (red, green, blue), which when combined create three more colors (magenta, cyan, yellow) for a total of seven (7). 

(It should be noted that we perceive color, therefore, it’s easy to make up new colors, e.g. “indigo” based on how our brain interprets what we see.)

A Further Examination of Gold, Red, and Blue

The use of gold is referenced many times in the Bible. For this particular examination, I’m going to focus on the color and material characteristics of gold—not the value of it. In the Old Testament, we see God instructing the Israelites to build many things in pure (24-karat) gold: the ark (Exodus 25:10-22), the menorah (Exodus 25:31-35), and so on. Gold represents God’s holiness.

The Connection Between Sound, Mass, Energy, and Light

The first recorded instance of sound comes in the third verse of Genesis: And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. (Genesis 1:3). Amazingly (but not surprisingly), the Bible connects sound and light right at the point of creation. God spoke, and there was light.

Time is Only Relevant to its Observer

If you were given the opportunity to hop on to a beam of light, you would be completely frozen in (or outside of) time. You would be infinite (eternal) in comparison to anyone else on Earth. You could literally travel for billions of decades without aging a single second. This is what we call Eternity. Like riding on the beam of light, in Eternity, time will appear normal, unchanging—because of your frame of reference.

Color Doesn’t Exist Without Light

All objects—with the exception of light—are reflectors. We only see the light waves that are reflected off of the object! So if you think someone is wearing a red hat, they are actually wearing a hat that is completely colorless. But when light hits it, every part of the color spectrum soaks into the hat except for red, so that’s the color you see. Three mind-numbingly insane thoughts come to my mind...

We Cannot Exist Without Light

Seeing that God is Light (1 John 1:5) and we were made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27), we know that it’s absolutely impossible to live without Light. Likely ignited by Blaise Pascal, many people describe our being as having a God-shaped hole (or vacuum) that cannot be filled without God, and that is true. But it’s actually much more extravagant than that; we literally cannot live without Light.

Reflection

The Bible claims that Jesus is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature and that he upholds the universe by the word of his power. (Hebrews 1:3). When we consider that God is Light (1 John 1:5) and that Jesus is the Light of the world (John 8:12), it makes sense that Jesus is God’s exact imprint and reflects him perfectly. But no one has ever seen God, so what does that actually mean?

The Most Sophisticated Camera in the World

As one dives deeper into understanding light, it’s hard not to giggle at the mere thought of all these things accidentally happening by random chance or some big bang. I mean, I don’t want to cause offense to people who think that the world just evolved by a fluke set of coincidences; but as you get into the science of it all, it does get pretty humorous at the amount of evidence for intelligent design.

Light & Darkness

The human eyes are an incredible work of art. When it’s bright, we can see things in color, but when it’s dark, we actually see objects in black and white. On top of that, because each color lives on a different wavelength (see chart, below), certain colors appear brighter in dim light than others. For example, a red hat may appear to be as bright as a blue hat in the bright sunlight.

Five Observations About Our Vision

Everything we see rightfully assumes an intelligent designer: your DNA and the fact that you’re completely unique, your eyes and the way you see, your ears and way you hear, your nose and your sense of smell, your skin and the ability to feel, your organs and your ability to live. But society, not science, has pushed back at the notion of God. To accept an intelligent designer (God) would mean that man is not in control, God is.

True Light vs. False Light

On average, a person can distinguish between over 100 different hues of the same color if they are allowed to compare them with each other. But, if the person is not allowed to compare two slightly different hues side-by-side, it is unlikely that they will notice any difference. Such is the case with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Numerous false-light (professed) Christians have slowly distorted the Bible into something that it’s not.

What Does it Mean to Come into the Light?

Come out of the darkness and step into the Light. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done in the past; every single one of us has done, said, and thought about some really stupid stuff! In Psalm 107:14, the Psalmist says, “He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and burst their bonds apart.” Imagine chains being utterly shattered!

Thank you to everyone who has made this project possible. All glory goes to God; all I have is His, and this project simply points back to Him. For we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. (1 Timothy 6:7) For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. (Galatians 6:3)
