The Universe Challenge!
Let us imagine that we are deep in the ‘Fred Flintstone’ quarry. We can now choose one of the rocks surrounding us, any rock, perhaps even a complex carbon structure, such as a lump of coal, soaked in water, covered in algae, to represent our embryonic planet, from three billion years ago. How then does this rock, even over vast evolutionary periods, create complex consciousness, including Beethoven and Einstein? How do we explain the appearance of 'thinking rocks'?
Humanity, over the past 5000 years, has proposed two great creation models to explain the appearance of 'thinking rocks'. We can call these two models, the 4-block matter model, and the genie’s bottle model of consciousness. They are the ‘male and female’ ways of perceiving the universe!
Space-Time-Gravity
Primal Matter
Consciousness
Underlying Laws
We can now create a simple $AUD10,000 Universe Challenge. To collect the prize, just be the first person to describe a plausible creation theory which is not simply a variation of one of these two creation models. Alternatively, through pure logic, convince the creator of the Universe Challenge that the matter creation model, and not the consciousness creation model, describes the deeper Truths for our universe!

Feel free to contact this website with your thoughts, or to attempt the Challenge. The best submissions will be displayed to promote debate and we will announce when the ‘winning’ cheque has been sent!
We also welcome donations to help promote the Universe Challenge!
The presenters of the 'Universe Challenge' are also seeking individuals, and organisations, who are interested in creating a one-hour television documentary on the ‘Challenge’, based upon individual interviews and group debates, within an open and transparent exchange of ideas. This exchange could be described as a 'Manhattan project', designed to help us solve the greatest riddle of the Ages, the ascent of Consciousness, and we suspect that this project is urgently needed as our planet teeters upon the edge of a political, military, financial, social, and environmental abyss! The Universe Challenge project already has sufficient funds to finance the initial one-hour documentary, and we assume that the funds for the following documentaries will be financed through the natural flow of donations. Who then would like to participate in the first documentary? These people could be students of philosophy, comparative religion, media, and film. They could be university departments, mystical groups, and television studios. They could be political parties, psychology groups, and scientific organisations. They could be anyone, who has even momentarily wondered at the appearance of 'thinking rocks’, and the fundamental question, 'Who Am I?' If you are interested and would like to participate, in any way, with the initial documentary, then please contact the Universe Challenge. (P.S. If you feel a little bewildered by The Challenge, then feel free to pass The Challenge onto your local 'brains trust', the smartest people you know, or to anyone of interest!)
