15) Quantum Physics In The Bible

As long as we are “avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:” (I Timothy 6:20) we can see the biblical God’s definition of Who and What he is through a scientific telescope. 

Consider what physics has deduced that the infinite beginning must have been like.

  • filled with energy inherent to space itself.
    • This is the biblical God’s explanation of himself. “God is a Spirit / energy.” (John 2:24)
  • which causes a rapid, exponential expansion. “In far less time than it takes to blink an eye, the universe blew up by 100 trillion trillion times in size.”
    • We can reverse engineer the biblical description of the transformation back from the state of entropy / disorder / corruption to the original state of enthalpy / containment of all energy. “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye…this corruptible must put on incorruption…the whole creation itself.” (I Corinthians 15:52, Romans 8:22-23.) 
  • that stretches the Universe flat, gives it the same properties everywhere, with small-amplitude quantum fluctuations, that get stretched to all scales (even super-horizon ones),
    • Described as such in the Bible. “Ah LORD God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:” (Jeremiah 32:17)
  • and then…converts that energy…into matter and radiation…
    • Described as creation in the beginning of the Bible. “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth…And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.” (Genesis 1:1, 16)
  • As a hyper dimensional being, to four dimensional beings he is
    • “the invisible God” (Colossians 1:15)

The Hebrew word for “called” is qara / קָרָא  It covers a lot of applications for verbalizing, including bringing into existence a blessing or curse or even a living being. We can therefore understand that whenever the Hebrew God “calls” something by name, he imposes structure on energy.

The Bible reports that seemingly solid substance is actually composed of invisible force fields.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the [spoken] word [which we have above noted is a form of energy] of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. (Hebrews 11:3)

Currently physicists are exploring how resonance, a quality of sound, holds together everything in the universe. Observation of the macro effect of sound vibrations on tiny particles of matter gives some insight into this micro subatomic physics phenomenon.

The Bible reports that God not only made, but maintains the “worlds.” Note the plural, either a reference to sequential reconstructions of our current world as reported by other cultures such as the Hindus and Mayas, or a reference to a multi-verse rather than uni-verse

“God…Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Sonby whom also he made the worldsand upholding all things by the word of his power,” (Hebrews 1:1-3)

True Investigative science validates religious revelation on any level of human understanding, from the simplest aboriginal culture recognizing the power of nature to the average first world educated person struck by the complexity of genetics to the genius scientists recognizing the limits of science to investigate reality.

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handyworkDay unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.” (Psalm 19:1-3)

“that which may be known of God is manifest…For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead” (Romans 1:19-20)

Read Genesis 1:2 with the above considerations in mind.

a secret history of creation is encoded in the most familiar of these [ancient religious] texts, Genesis…

Genesis 1:26 [sic] is usually translated as ‘In the beginning God made heaven and earth’, but…The passage properly reads, ‘In the beginning the gods made heaven and earth’…

When we fact check that statement in the original Hebrew in which it was documented we find that, indeed, the word for God is plural.

The noun Elohim is plural but it is always used with a singular verb when it speaks of the true God. This indicates a unity and diversity within the nature of God.

Whether or not we believe the ancient Hebrew account, in order to conduct a scientifically reliable analysis of the Hebrew record we must acknowledge that this account clearly reports that the Creator is a Singularity with plurality.

Monotheistic Judaism is succinctly expressed by the Shema, “considered by some the most essential prayer in all of Judaism. An affirmation of God’s singularity” 

She-ma yisrael, adonai eloh-einu, adonai echad.

This is documented as a direct quote from Moses in the Hebrew Torah, referenced in the more familiar Christian English translation as Deuteronomy 6:4.

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD / YHVH our God is one Lord / Ruler.”

This paradox is consistent with the physical sciences’ Theory of Everything merging all forces into one fundamental singular force.

Light in general and sun-light in particular enjoy some of the most prominent and most powerful symbolisms in many cultures.Sun is the heavenly light that man sees from the very beginning, indeed it is the stuff of life, what keeps life on earth…In Indo-European the sun and sun-light occupies prime position, the highest seat in the pantheon and religious imagery, an idea which is reflected in the name of the prime god Zeus (e.g. Gk. Ζευς, Skt. dydus, Lat. Iu(p)piter, etc., all from IE *dyeus ‘heavenly light, day light’). Many myths and many types of symbolism are associated with the sun and the heavenly light, many praises have been devoted to this primary natural phenomenon, and its magic and power have been immortalized in literature, art, and philosophy. It is, therefore, understandable to find close associations of light with life and life-source, and its lack with death, absence of life, and misfortune. Life, like truth, shines in the bright sun-light, while the opposite finds expression in darkness, in misty and foggy environments…

Light is a cosmic power, but also the power of life

Ancient religions report extensively on invisible hyper dimensionality that invisibly interacts with the material world, AKA the spirit dimension. With the latest quantum physics discoveries in mind, we should be able to recognize that these ancient teachings are not mere myths, imagery, metaphors, or euphemisms, but actual revealed knowledge of the hidden dimensions science calls Dark Matter and Dark Energy. The concepts of light, life, spirit God materializing in human form and humans being born again into the spirit dimension were integral to many ancient religions, not just Judaism. 

Mithraism dates back over 4,000 years and is likely much older. It is one of the most ancient religions predating most all of the other living religions on Earth…

The creation of the world is the central episode…the Sun God sent his messenger, the Raven, to Mithra and ordered him to sacrifice the Bull…at the very moment of the death of the bull, a great miracle happened…

One Mithraic hymn begins: “Thou hast redeemed us by shedding the eternal blood.”

Time was created…the struggle between Good and Evil began: thus is the condition of man’s life…After the sacrifice, Mithra and the sun god banqueted together…

The soul of man came down from heaven…caught within the body. The task of man is to liberate his divine part (the soul) from the shackles of the body…

Zoroastrian religion– Persia…is the only form of the Mithraic religion which still survives to the present day…one of the world’s oldest, and at one time most powerful religions, “combining a cosmogonic dualism [Good against Evil, Light against Dark] and eschatological monotheism [All began and ends in One] in a manner unique… among the major religions of the world…”

Whenever men observed justice and contract, they venerated Mithra…

Mithra may signify any kind of communication…and whatever establishes good relations between them. Mithra was called the Mediator.

This demonstrates that the knowledge of Creator God of light’s Singularity was clarified by Yeshua haMessiah, not introduced. The best explanation for the parallels between multiple religions is not that one copied another, but that they both drew from the same primary source. The scriptures on which both Mithraism and John’s Gentile-oriented teachings about the Hebrew religion base their theology date back into the mists of time. 

Most importantly, what the first century Jewish Messiah we call Jesus Christ taught about himself from ancient Hebrew accounts is not a contradiction of Monotheism, but a paradoxical truth.

As with any complex concept, it takes study to understand it. Some people don’t bother to study, but are they the ones whose opinion you should accept?

there’s a striking difference between the first three Gospels — Matthew, Mark, and Luke, which are known together as the Synoptic Gospels — and the Gospel of John...

…theological debates and heresies were becoming rampant — including Gnosticism and other ideologies that denied either Jesus’ divine nature or human standing. These controversies were the tip of the spear leading to the great debates and councils of the 3rd and 4th centuries (the Council of Nicaea, the Council of Constantinople, and so on) — many of which revolved around the mystery of Jesus’ nature as both fully God and fully man.

John took a lot of pains to make it crystal clear that Jesus was indeed God in human form.

John writes his Gospel like a good defense attorney and in his opening statement (1:1-2) discloses Jesus’ identity from the very beginning (Compare with Genesis 1:1)…

“In the beginning was the Word / Logos, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” (John 1:1-4)

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) 

John then focuses on specific miracles that would reveal Jesus’ divine nature and his life-giving mission…

Notice that all of these miracles are “apologetic” demonstrations of Jesus’ ability to control the science of the natural order. Only God the Creator could do this. For example, his power over chemistry (water to wine), power over biology (healing disease and disability), power over the laws of nature (walking on water), and finally his power over death both physical and spiritual (raising Lazarus and his own resurrection).

In every chapter John focuses on Jesus’ deity being revealed. The most convincing account is found in John 8:58: Jesus said to them: “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.”

John provides evidence that Jesus Himself claimed to be God by revealing a series of “I AM” statements that correspond to Old Testament language and prophecy: (Great article on this at gotquestion.org)

In addition, we can trace the chain of custody of John’s teachings through his disciples starting with Ignatius (ca. AD 35-117) and Polycarp (69–155) who taught Irenaeus (AD 120-202) who taught Hippolytus (AD 170-236). According to J. Warner Wallace, “John’s students recorded his teachings and identified the sources for later generations. Long before the Codex Sinaiticus was first penned or the Council of Laodicea formalized the canon, the New Testament was established as a reliable eyewitness.” The chain of custody can be further corroborated and established through the other Apostles (Peter, Paul and Mark) and their disciples.

the Synoptic Gospels were written about 20-30 years after Jesus’ death and resurrection…[as] eyewitness accounts and sources would soon be scarce…

John wrote his account of Jesus’ life a full generation after the Synoptic authors had recorded their works…detailed accounts of Jesus’ life and ministry had already existed for decades, had been copied for decades, and had been studied and debated for decades…

And John refers his readers to these Jewish witnesses to back up what he is reporting.

And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in THIS book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ [Greek translation for Jewish Messiah], the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” (John 20:31)

Most of all, John rests his case and directs his readers back to existing ancient Jewish scriptures predating Judaism and going back to Creation, predicting his life and death.

“When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.” (John 2:22)

“Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” (John 5:39-40)

the name / identifying attribute of [the Hebrew] God…is the sacred Tetragrammaton YHVHbreathed, with the tongue relaxed and lips apart…formally the name of God was not, could not be spoken at all — only breathed.

The idea of breath and breathing features prominently throughout scripture. Both Hebrew and Greek have words to express “breath of God” as the Spirit of God which gives life and expresses God’s love and power. In Hebrew, the word is ruach. In Greek, the word is pneuma…

“As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.” This rendering of the psalm from the King James Version of the Bible is most consistent with the breathing metaphor of this thesis…

As we become aware of our breathlessness before God, God’s grace allows us to reconnect with the Living God who is the source of our breath and life…The wordplay in Psalm 42 suggests this type of panting. As the hart (deer) pants for streams of water, so does the heart (soul) of the psalmist pant for the living water (John 4:10-14)…

Breathing is necessary for living. That fact remains unchallenged. Modern science possesses a keen grasp of the physical nature of respiration, but throughout history many cultures attached a spiritual significance to the act of breathing. According to ancient Egyptian medical papyri (2750-2625 B.C.) the air we breathe is imbued with a spiritual quality…

The Greeks and Romans (beginning around 500 B.C.) also commented on the spirit-infused nature of air. Greek philosophy held that there is an unquantifiable yet vital essence within all things called pneuma, often translated as “spirit,” “breath,” or “air…” 

The Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) championed the theory of vitalism which claims that living things are fundamentally different from non-living things because they contain a non-physical element absent from non-living things. Aristotle called this non-physical element the “psyche,” an animating spirit or soul…

Respiration involves both inspiration and expiration. In Genesis 2:7, God breathes into Adam and Adam becomes a living being (inspiration) who then acts as the caretaker of God’s creation (exhalation)…As God exhales, humankind inhales. As humankind exhales, God inhales. The triune God, who is communal by nature, reaches out to us (emanation) and draws us back into communion and community with the triune God (return)…

The Creator God, from whom we draw our breath, continues to be our inspiration, our source of power and life. To be like Christ is our aspiration, to be transformed and invigorated for the work of God’s impending reign. Then, with the Holy Spirit, we conspire with and are sent out to do thework of claiming God’s reign on earth as it is in heaven. This is the basic movement of Christian life. We inhale the Spirit of God and exhale the reign of God.

When we operate as designed, we combine the the best of both domains – hyper dimensionality and physicality.

When we don’t operate as designed, we have a problem.

The root of the matter is the way we feel and conceive of ourselves as human beings. Our sensation of being alive, of individual existence and identity. We suffer from a hallucination, from a false and distorted sensation of our own existence as living organisms. Most of us have the sensation that “I, myself” is a separate center of feeling and action, living inside and bounded by the physical body. A center with confronts an external world of people and things, making contact through the senses with a universe both alien and strange…

This feeling of being lonely and very temporary visitors in the universe is in flat contradiction to everything known about man and all other living organisms in the sciences. We do not come into this world. We come out of it. Alan W. Watts, The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are

Although I don’t agree with all the conclusions made by Alan Watts because he loses the thread of provenance and falls back on his personal philosophizing, his statement of the problem is nicely put
