Quantum Physics

Those are big words about the study of very small parcels of energy which Einstein named “quanta”. Research and discovery began as recently as 100 years ago so it really is a new science. It’s a fascinating subject because it provides new understanding of the reality of the universe we live in and has great meaning for anyone seeking truth about man’s existence. I'm not a scientist but I am learning about what’s being discovered and somehow I feel a need to share it. It concerns me that the human race is undergoing a paradigm shift comparable to the discovery of a round earth while most of us are busy watching American Idol.

There are two problems I will have. I don't know enough about physics to explain it sufficiently (I will refer often to experts), and the study of the very small is wildly unpredictable. Einstein himself called it "spooky". Niels Bohr, the imminent Danish physicist said, "If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet." Yet it continues to be thoroughly researched and tested - and is proven to be true 100% of the time.

The other problem could be even more difficult. New light is being shed on the nature of the universe and of God and man's relationship to both. Some of it may necessitate a rethinking of long-held religious beliefs. It is not my wish to force this change – just to present the facts as I'm learning them and help others see beyond what they believe is the only reality. The universe, including God, is much more amazing and wonderful than any of us have ever been told, or have ever imagined. Hopefully this dialogue will spur readers on to their own inquiry and they will be free to draw their own conclusions. Christians with more fundamental beliefs need not fear. Jesus told us the truth would set us free and there is no reason to doubt that. In fact I haven’t found anything that contradicts anything Jesus ever said. I myself am a born again, spirit-filled Christian who is excited about the new convergence of science and spirituality. I always thought it should be possible. We like to tell God we want more. Are we ready for what he would show us? If so maybe we'll see why our church experience has become so wanting.

Here are a couple things to think about before I start. 1. The material world is an illusion. There is no such thing as physical matter. Everything is part of an energy field which vibrates at different intervals. 2. Everything that exists, or has ever existed, is part of what created it. We've heard it so often that it has become a cliche, but now it's beginning to be proven. We're all one.

  2. “As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene . . . . No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life. ” -- Albert Einstein.

    The paradigm is shifting dramatically, and that shift will rock the foundations of our most dearly held beliefs. When you become aware of these changes, you feel compelled to let others know. But how do we express the inexpressible? Language cannot help but fail. Like Lao-Tzu said, “The Tao that can be spoken of is not the Tao.” And yet, he felt compelled to try as have many other spiritual sages who have experienced the Divine. Why? Because the synergy created by science and spirituality is liberating. Although we’re excited because we have quantum discoveries to back up our spiritual discoveries, the spiritual masters who have gone before us discovered the same scientific results through a direct, personal experience of the Divine. When you’ve escaped the prison of your misperceptions, you don’t want to bring blankets and food to the other prisoners; you want to show them the door is open. In appreciation for those who have helped to open your eyes, you pay it forward; you become a servant of the message. Congratulations on starting your blog and saying what needs to be said. We look forward to reading your posts.
