Your mother was like a grapevine(Ezekiel 19:10) Good news Translation
planted near a stream.
Because there was plenty of water,
the vine was covered with leaves and fruit.
Chlorophyll captures the energy from sunlight in a process called photosynthesis and produces Hydrogen (H+). It’s a picture of the command that God gave to begin the process of forming organic life: let light be.
God’s command “Let light be” caused the water molecule to split. Perhaps. Although technically speaking water is really a plasma of the ions H+ and OH– and we (that’s me and the Holy spirit) make a direct connection between particle physics and the Holy Trinity through the elemental spirits Alpha and Omega.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
The components of water aren’t bound into the tradition triangle-shaped molecule that we think of as water, they’re moving around each other in a continual flux. In the early moments of creation all of the H+ was available “to do work,” which is a Physics euphemism for “make something happen.”
As a copy of this on a smaller scale, Chlorophyll provides a supply of H+ “to do work,” in metabolism. Chlorophyll is part of the process of Photosynthesis in plants, which provides all of the sustenance for life on Earth. Even if we eat meat, the animal that we eat ate, for the most part, plants that grew because of photosynthesis.
The chlorophyll molecule is a complex ring structure that’s able to take the energy of a photon (light) and use it to split the water molecule into OH–– and H+. This H+ is now available to do work in cellular metabolism. In plants this is used for growth and to store energy as sugars and starch. This represents the establishment of God’s initial energizing command, let light be, as a way to power all the rest of life.
God’s command Let light be used H+ from water to generate light. In a way Chlorophyll and let light be are opposites, one is the reverse of the other, but let light be established the pattern for the metabolic process that sustains life.
The Magnesium ion (Mg2+) in the center of the molecular ring structure binds Oxygen (O2-). This structure is known as a porphyrin ring. The pattern of using a porphyrin ring in a system that produces H+ is copied into sentient life in the hemoglobin molecule which uses Iron (Fe2+) to do the same thing.
