It fascinates me how when matter and antimatter collide it produces photons or gamma rays, which is pure light. This physical process is called ‘annihilation’, and a lot of energy is released when it happens. Light can also be separated in a process called ‘pair production’, though we humans cannot do that very well yet.
But God can. God is Pure Light. This means He doesn’t exist in a momentary flash of light like particles do when they meet their oppositely charged partner. He holds this process in Himself eternally, making Him perpetual LIGHT. (see GIF in this link). In His miraculous way he keeps the flow of positive and negative energy colliding where He is. Despite our efforts, we have not been able to harness enough antimatter to boil a cup of tea (http://www.symmetrymagazine.org/article/april-2015/ten-things-you-might-not-know-about-antimatter.)
We are created in His image, therefore we are created from this Light Source. And we become matter while our other side is held apart from us somewhere, because to meet with our particular antimatter would mean we become annihilated, to use the proper scientific term.
I believe the mystery of the Upper Waters which are created on the Second Day of creation are where God stores the antimatter, and perhaps the dark energy too, which make up most of our universe. He separates ‘the waters from the waters’ which is a confusing statement until you consider it sounds almost completely similar to matter and antimatter! Heaven-the Expanse-separates Light from Darkness because for us there would be nothing if there were no Expanse: what makes us, and everything around us, would find its mate and annihilate into pure Light, then disappear.
Evil exists everywhere. Satan wants to speed this process of annihilation along because he wants to create light himself. He wants control over death, and he is bent on killing and destroying everything. Does he not realize he cannot create perpetual light which is God? No, he does not. Most of those intent on evil are extremely myopic in their vision, if you think about it. They cannot see the big picture, but only the part of the picture where they place themselves as king for a moment. And satan is no different.
Man too would like to control life. Which is ultimately why we are seeking antimatter. Once we understand it we can control it and use it. But what man does not see in his own myopia is that God in Heaven stands firmly between the two. And with a Word can control our destiny in a flash, like He did with the Big Bang.
Genesis 1: King James Version
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. [b below]
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. [b below]
(b) represents the waters (+) and (-) coming together at God’s command to create light, also called ‘annihilation’. “Whoever loses his life for my sake shall find it.” ~Jesus
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness [a below].
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. [a below]
(a) represents God dividing the light from the darkness. And He called the light Day [matter] and the darkness Night [dark, or anti-, matter]. And this completed the First Day. This is called ‘pair production’. As I discuss in my Exegesis of Genesis the light and darkness here is more figurative than literal when one looks at the original words in Hebrew, and since our luminaries (the sun, moon, and stars) will not actually be formed until the Third Day.
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
Dividing the waters from the waters means dividing the matter from the antimatter, because if they do not stay divided they will annihilate (see video below). God creates the expanse-Heaven-to separate these two opposing forces. He is the gate-keeper between life and death not just for individuals but for all matter.
7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
And the upper waters are not referred to again except in Psalm 148:4: “Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.”
10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good….
