The God of Logic, the God, who is logic!
Article by Marc Aupiais
I watch the screen, perhaps I could step through, maybe enter their world. I feel the theme, the fantastic plot, partly, I wish it would surround me, whirl and twirl around me. Part of me wants it, for the everyday ordinary to be extraordinarily special.
I cannot step into the screen, the illusion is not for my form, only my eyes.
Yet, it reminds me, of the form of God, of the everyday ordinary, whom we worship as Truth, and all there is to soothe. Truth, is not a metaphor for God, he meant it literally, I have often said!
You see, the truth, is what is, the connecting thing, which is what it appears as, however hidden in the murk.
God is reality, Augustine would agree. He is the "Frame-er" of our universe, said another early witness within those ancient bodies of truth, but what does that mean?
I have often said God is Reality, the fabric on which the universe is based, but what is reality, which we intuitively understand, yet rationally don't know, this is a question. One I have to know.
You see, when we look deeper in, logic becomes the rules which govern the universe. In an infinite space, there is no physical frame. What is the fabric of the universe? ...cause and effect?
You see, God is logic, is order ...that all governing thing. I often compared Reality to our Operating system, where we run on it, like sequences of intuitive code. For reality is the system on which all are based: could God be logic, the basic rules, which encompass all: is God wisdom: quite literally?
Indeed, if God is logic, then he thinks, at least as much as thinking is logic interacting, God is more of a being than us. For, that which we mimic with thought: well, if it does not think, our thoughts are as much of an illusion as Logic's thoughts, and as real as these, or perhaps ...our thoughts are: not so sure?
And, indeed, if Reality, Yahweh: God, is our operating system, the basis of all: then indeed, he made man in his image: our imagination, and rational thoughts: the worlds we ourselves govern.
Is God the logical system, the basic fabric of all interaction? Is he wisdom, truth, and basis? Is God Logic? That which causes the universe to be? Which is the universe's basis, the basis also, and framework of thought, and all things?
For Order, has always been, and though rules may change, even such is predictable, we can predict unpredictability, knowing enough. Perhaps God is Order, that everyday thing, the spiritual, like a poem, yet a dynamic thing? Perhaps our thoughts, mimicking truth, small theaters for logic, and cause and effect: are more real than once thought, a truly real thing?
If God is logic, our souls are our equations: that which caused us to grow, from conception, through birth, through life, that which survives: for eternity, all time! If God is logic, our soul is the connecting thing: that which connects our form, our conscience and thoughts ...with him. For we are our souls: Soul, and Body, one being: like waves and water, inseparable is our soul from us, for our soul and body, both one us: Our soul, ...is the dynamic equation, which is us, and causes our life. Written, though not formed: before eternity: it governs all our true hope.

Who is Marc Evan Aupiais?Attorney; Writer; Enthusiast of Germanic, Celtic, & Romance languages, with a love of exploring law, speech, legal systems, linguistics, sociology, & int. news.
I have always been fascinated with the law. By chance, it happens to be my field. I am an admitted attorney of the High Court of South Africa, as of 28 January 2016.
It was my fellow students' suggestions, in the final years of school, that I might be suited to a career in law, along with long discussions with a friend of mine - which imbued me with a keen interest in the history, language, and laws of the Roman Empire - that made me realise that law was the choice of career that best suited the ideas and plans I had for the future. I enrolled in an LLB degree at Wits University and subsequently graduated Bachelor of Laws a few years later.
I completed, with distinction, the Law Society's Legal Education and Development (L.E.A.D) School for Legal Practice program. I am pleased to have had the privilege of having served at two very different firms during my articles, giving me a much broader experience of work in the profession.
I believe success requires not just hard work, but intelligence, perseverance, humility, integrity, ingenuity, diligence, a strong work ethic, and the courage to request the assistance of those better-versed in a matter, or field.
I am passionate about the place of my birth, South Africa and am proud to be a patriot and citizen of this diverse and beautiful nation. I consider myself a global citizen and keep connections in a number of different nations across the world. Communicating with people from other cultures, I believe, has aided me to have a more open-minded approach in so far as how I see and interact with the world.
The cultures and legal systems, morals, and courtesy systems, languages, intricacies and religions of South Africa and of the world, are subjects I love to research. I extensively enjoy reading and writing, and in keeping abreast with important events occurring in other countries, I find my knowledge of other languages, especially French, to be quite useful.
Law & Career
Law firms I have worked at include: DL Wilson Attorneys in Randburg North, Desmond Barry Attorneys in Morningside, Sandton, Botha & Sutherland Attorneys in Aukland Park, Johannesburg. I currently work as a Consulting Attorney for Serina Govender Inc. Attorneys-at-Law. My professional website will tell you more about me, where you might want to subscribe to my professional blog . I also edit and write for the SACNS, write breaking news for a multinational service called InfosNews Breaking News, and act as a correspondent for the popular french language Les News service.
Novels I have written include
A Lesser Instinct | My first foray into the world of long form fiction.
