Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

By the laws of cause and effect, something has to be derived from something, it cannot be derived from nothing, so philosophically the creation has to have been created by a Creator of some sort

 

A description of the experience

Emmanuel SwedenborgThe Infinite and the final cause of creation

The Infinite is the cause of the finite, which it could not be if it did not exist.  No cause can produce an effect, unless the power to produce lie in it… Actual NOTHING can furnish us with no cause – nothing can come of nothing

The source of the experience

Swedenborg, Emanuel
