Elon Musk’s Neuralink, Part 5!🧠🎉⚛️


As I’ve talked about in previous posts, Elon Musk and his Neuralink technology will be a breakthrough in medicine. He is going to restore function to so many people! It’s so exciting to see. Clinical trials have not yet begun but earlier this year the company received full FDA approval! Again, I am so excited for what the future holds for so many with brain injuries/diseases thanks to Elon Musk! I am going to attach the video. This is very interesting and a MUST WATCH! While watching I learned that the surgery will be done as outpatient and completed within a matter of one to two hours! Anesthesia will not even be required! You’ll also see pigs that have gotten the brain chip and then had it removed, safely. This is incredible. I can’t wait to learn more about Elon’s exciting new piece of technology that will help so many!❤️‍🔥❤️♥️

God Is One of Order✨⚛️🙏

It’s true. He is the reason for my existence and the reason why I move. ‘Without God I am nothing’ does not mean I don’t recognize my individuality it just means that I acknowledge the fact that he has made me! The greatest philosophers debate about where consciousness comes from and verify that our thoughts come from ‘somewhere!’ Although it seems like we choose our thoughts and actions that is not necessarily the case. What I mean is, we have a cortex (the outer surface of the brain) that is constantly trying to appease our body (limbic system). It sends messages to our body through neurons all day. It takes outside information from the environment and processes it. Our behaviors, actions, and thoughts seem to be our own, but if you think about it experiences ‘just appear,’ according to Sam Harris, an American philosopher and neuroscientist. You see everything is in cosmic✨ order. The greatest physicists in the world, such as Brian Greene, have even debated about whether or not we really have free will. Brian says there is an order of things. We are ‘actors’ in this universe🪐 in alignment with that divine order. However, to say we don’t have choices would not be fair. Science has also discovered that an electron or ‘particle’ can appear in different parts of a wave🌊 while doing the ‘double split experiment.’ This has taught us that the fact that the electron can come up in different parts of the wave means we also have ‘different routes’ we can take! in physics, we are technically a ’particle.’ God has a plan for everything though. Even for when we mess up. Whether we are moving here through complete divine order or a combination of our choices and intuition, God is in the drivers seat no matter what. Frankly, I wouldn’t have it any other way! 🔮⚛️✝️💖✨🪐🙏

Elon Musk, Part 4🧠✨☄️🔥

Elon was on Lex Fridman’s podcast not too long ago, and I wanted to share some of the amazing advancements he is making. I am fascinated by his company, Neuralink. This is a new company that will solve problems such as brain disease.

I mean, how many people in the world have brain related diseases? Everything from Alzheimer’s to brain injuries from accidents to anyone who suffers from any disease (paralysis effected by strokes) anything that affects the brain, even genetic diseases, will be cured. We are looking at least 5 to 10 years out, in my opinion maybe even twenty, before this technology becomes available–but they are already discussing trials!

There will be a ‘robotic sewing machine’ that will insert these “threads” into the brain. Omg, limb function will be restored and even organ functions that have been damaged. You see the brain controls everything. This makes perfect sense. When the messages from the brain to the spinal cord/other parts of the body are corrupted–all kinds of stuff can enter: infection, inflammation, dead muscle, memory loss, damaged nerves, etc.

They want to “trigger” a neuron and see what the response is in the brain. We know our body is full of electrical signals. Everything you see and experience is basically an electrical signal. The human (brain) cortex is constantly trying to make the body (lymbic system) happy. It is the foundation of “human intelligence.” When messages get damaged from the brain to the body it causes a number of issues. Neuralink will restore people’s motor control!!!

This technology is especially important to me because I have a spinal cord injury, and I’ve had one ever since I was a teenager. I know how wonderful this technology is going to be for so many. It will alleviate suffering and one day brain disease or injuries to the brain/body due to accidents will be comparable to catching the common cold. They will be healed through this technology. Quality of life will be better.

They will insert a tiny electrode that will last as long as a person that won’t damage neurons. A number of engineering disciplines are going to be involved. The electrode is what will send the signals. This won’t be done by a neurosurgeon. It will have to be like LASIK surgery. It will have to be done by a robot (or AI). But the surgeons will be there.

If this concerns you just keep in mind that everything comes to you through an electrical signal. EVERYTHING. Everything you see, taste, feel, and experience comes to you through it. Neurons (also called neurones or nerve cells) are the fundamental units of the brain and nervous system.

They are the cells responsible for receiving sensory input from the external world, for sending motor commands to our muscles, and for transforming and relaying the electrical signals at every step in between. “We will not fail to be smarter than a digital super computer.” ~Elon Musk♥️

Elon Musk, Part 3🧠⚕️🤖

Today I thought I’d write again on Elon Musk and Neuralink because ever since I learned about it I am just fascinated. Not only is Musk interested in resolving sustainable energy, but he works at that tirelessly. And his awesome Neuralink Corporation is a neurotechnology company developing implantable brain–machine interfaces founded by him and others.

The company’s headquarters are in San Francisco sharing offices with OpenAI. Neuralink was recently launched in 2016 and first publicly reported in March 2017. It had received $158 million in funding (of which $100 million was from ‘Musk,’ or ELON MUSK himself). It was employing a staff of 90 people including the top neuroscientists in the world!🌍

At that time, Neuralink announced that it was working on a “sewing machine-like” device capable of implanting very thin threads into the brain, and demonstrated a system that read information from a lab rat via 1,500 electrodes. They had anticipated starting experiments with humans in 2020; but have since moved that projection to 2021. Musk says he will initiate human trials by the end of this year.

There is a very low potential for rejection and the implant is not more serious than receiving a heart monitor or hip replacement, for example. There actually are people who have primitive devices in their brains now. People with deep brain stimulation with Parkinson’s Disease, for example, already have a ‘chip.’ So it is already happening on some level, and it has improved their lives!

Not only is Elon getting rockets to the moon through Space X; he’s also the CEO of Telsa. He says that a Tesla is the most fun thing anyone could ever have!😄 But back to Neuralink. The main purpose of it is to cure or atleast make the quality of life better for people with brain injuries or disease that is caused by the brain.

Diseases like Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, and a number of others will be cured. Injuries like Spinal cord injuries will be healed and having a spinal injury one day will be comparable to catching the common cold. It will be curable.👏

The threads will be implanted into the skull and become flush with the skull. So no one will know. It will more than likely be AI who inserts the threads (because they never mess up!)🤖 And you wouldn’t even know that someone has had it done.

It could return eyesight and restore memory and solve hearing issues. It could alleviate the effects of almost anything that is WRONG with the brain. It could restore limb function (back to curing the spinal cord)!

Believe it! With God ALL things are possible. The greatest physicists in the world even say that in an “eternal universe anything can happen.” This universe is eternal. It is comprised of rebirth after rebirth and it never ends.

We are living in a cosmic bubble bath of universe(s), or ‘Big events,’ actually. I refuse to say ’Big Bang’ because when a universe is born there is no noise or bang. In the beginning God said, ’Let there be light.’ There was light!✨

In this cosmic bubble bath comprised of more than 100,000,000 galaxies (or star systems) that we know of so far, why wouldn’t God create a Neuralink? Why wouldn’t God create an Elon Musk? Yes. People. And it doesn’t have to be the “chip” that comprises the “end of the world” that many of you falsely believe we are heading towards.

It is only around 2,000 AD. We are not even close! Open your mind. There will be the year 5,000, 10,000, and 20,0000 AD, maybe even 500,000, etc. This is not even the beginning. Michio Kaku, a world renowned physicist says that weddings will take place on the moon🌛 in 5,000,000 years!

We are a new planet. Think Star Wars. You never know with all this space exploration. Elon also says the end goal is to travel from planet to planet–think space civilization!🪐🌏✨🌙⚕️🤖🌏🌟

Elon Musk, Part 2🚀💻🤖

I think this is the single best scientific YouTube interview I have ever watched! And I have watched many! Elon is brilliant and the more I listen to him the more I learn. He says AI (Artificial Intelligence) in the future could be used as a weapon (that’s scary); however, AI will continue to help us make advancements in technology and even medicine.

The problem is if AI gets larger than we are, or if there is more AI than there is us that could be a problem. What he was saying was mind blowing. A company is just a cybernetic collective of people and machines. True. When you think of it that way it’s easy to fathom how some are so successful. He and Joe Rogan even question whether we are all one giant cybernetic collective due to networks like Google and other social networks like Facebook and Twitter. We are constantly connected to AI now whether we realize it or not. After you are gone, your ghost will be living here.

We are the ones building the AI even though we are biological. The percentage of intelligence that is not human is increasing. How often can you NOT get a human on the phone or simply go through AI to get your answers when you call large companies like Amazon, for example. I mean, you can get a human on the phone at most places like USPS after going through a bunch of AI.

The percentage of intelligence that is not human is increasing and he says that eventually we will represent a very small percentage of intelligence. The internet is just a projection of our lymphatic system, but of course it is not human and made up of our lymphatic system. The more lymphatic resonance the more engagement. It’s why Instagram is so enticing. You get more images and more video. It appeals to our Lymphatic system.

We are getting more and more connected. Elon says he has tried to warm people to slow down for a long time now about AI taking over. However, our ‘bandwith’ is still slow. So, I guess that’s a good thing. Lol Nobody listened to him about AI, he says.

What’s crazy is he starts to talk about what is going to happen. And this video was recorded three years ago. He says there will be some sort of technology that is new that may cause damage or death, and there will be an outcry and investigation. Years will pass. There will be an insight committee and rules and regulations. Omg. Coronavirus Pandemic?

Then he compares the enacting of seatbelts that took many years. It’s almost like he was having a prophetic moment about the coming on of the pandemic and MASKS or the vaccine. Wowie wow! His brilliance is inspiring. Most of all he’s a nice guy. He wants to cure people with diseases caused by the brain. For example, having a spinal cord injury will one day be like having a common cold. It will be easy to cure.

So will Alzheimer’s and other ‘brain’ diseases where messages can get corrupted. It will be AI performing the surgery not a doctor and he will be on standby though. They will insert “threads” into your brain that will make you function normally. A number of diseases will be cured through this technology and he is developing it now through his Neuralink company recently launched in 2016.

At some point, our capabilities can be out of this world, literally. I am talking “Iron Man’ capabilities according to Elon. YOU HAVE TO WATCH IT! HERE IS THIS LINK BELOW!

Understand that God has already made you with “computing” power because God is the greatest computer disginer that has ever lived. In my opinion, if we are living in assimilation and in some sort of cyborg collective it is God’s collective. God is the greatest scientist ath has ever lived!🙏✨👑🌐🌍🪐💫

Elon Musk on Lex Fridman’s podcast. Wowie wow!🔥

Elon Musk (one of my favorite innovators) was on the Lex Fridman podcast (a world renowned and famous podcast show). He gets A LOT of listeners! I would LOVE to be on his show!

Apparently Elon thinks that one day AI (artificial intelligence) will be just as ‘smart’ as us and even difficult to discern. What I mean is one day it will be hard to tell whether you are dealing with AI or a human being.

AI safety is the goal. Right now they are making driverless cars completely driven by a computer. Elon argues that driverless cars are safer. For example, one day you may get a pizza delivered by a driverless JET’s pizza driver!

AI will be responsible for helping relieve Alzheimer’s. Or a ‘chip’ will be I should say. There will be a chip one day that will help those with Alzheimer’s remember their birthday, names of their loved ones, and other important things, etc.

‘We’ve got a monkey brain with a computer stuck in it,’ Elon says. Elon also says it should be that the ‘smart thing controls the dumb thing.’lol But the dumb thing, being us, controls the smart thing (AI).🤣😂

Neuralink (Elon’s company) will solve a lot of critical damage that has been done to the brain or spinal cord due to disease or accidents. He will solve brain related diseases even simple memory loss. At some point we may all experience it. His company has just been launched in 2016. That is not long ago!

It will improve quality of life! They will implant ’brain machine interfaces’ that will be embedded ’threads into the brain!’ It will cure TBIs and motor function issue due to spinal cord injury! Why couldn’t he have come out with this 20 years ago? I’ve had a spinal cord injury since 1994!

If you want to watch this AMAZING interview, I am still mind blown, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smK9dgdTl40 I hope you enjoy it and learn a lot like I did!

‘A new earth’🌍


Last night I was thinking about the famous Bible passage by John in the Book of Revelation. In John’s vision, he saw a new heaven (the city of Jerusalem coming down from the sky), and he also saw a new earth! 🌍♥️ As I was thinking more about it, I thought back to Lex Fridman’s podcast I recently heard with the famous world renowned physicist, Michio Kaku. EVERY star🌟 has a planet🪐 going around it. ONE in FIVE of those planets ARE EARTH🌍 sized planets! There are billions of galaxies besides ours, 100,000,000,000 with 100,000,000,000 stars✨🌠 in each one! So, if there are billions of ‘earth sized planets’ and in the book of Revelation John sees ‘a new earth’🌍, THEN who is to say there aren’t other ‘earths’ out there (with people in them?). I mean, maybe it’s not necessarily extraterrestrial life we’re searching after. Maybe we are searching for copies of ourselves. I would also imagine that if there are other earths 🌍🌍 out there with other humans👩‍🦳 their planet would be more advanced. We are just on the cusp of a Type 1, and not quite able to modify natural disasters such as hurricanes yet. But once we harness more planetary power and stop getting our energy from dead plants, coal, and oil, climate change won’t be a problem and the effects of natural disaster will be lessened. You see, we are a young planet. For the end timers out there: the end is no where near, it is only the beginning!

Some things you may want to know, Part 6

According to physics, you are a ‘particle.’ As a matter of fact, you are nothing more than ‘a bag of particles.’ -Brian Greene Better yet, you are comparable to an electron that gives off light.✨ Keep in mind though, the electron can also be a wave. Actually, you are a wave—the entire universe is a wave!🌊 This will be difficult to understand if you don’t know much about Quantum mechanics and how everything is broken down into its tiniest parts. But think outside of the box for a moment. It seems you are living in a three-D dimensional world, but now the greatest physicists in the world 🌍 believe it may be a 2 D dimensional surface with the appearance of a 3 D world. That would mean you are more of a hologram than you realize. Think about it, can you see your natural face without looking into a mirror or by viewing a photo? Well, don’t get all caught up in the fact that you may be a hologram. Just Google search the Holographic Principle if you’re really interested. God is the coolest computer designer that has ever existed. But back to the electron for a moment, it can be a point or wave depending upon how you look at it. The electron can pop up into different parts of a wave. You as an ‘electron’ can go many different routes, make many different choices, and there is more than one possibility for you. God knows and sees all. He even foresees the route you will take when you fail. After it, he is there to pick you back up and fix your mistake. His love is unconditional,❤️ He is all-knowing. Omnipresent. And magnificent!✨✨💖🙏🌊👍🪐💙🌍😀

Some things you may want to know, Part 5!

In the next one hundred years things will change. Jobs of the future will change. Five hundred years from now there may even be time travel. Teleportation! We NOW can see actual thoughts as they are generated inside the living brain through an MRI, and it is a wonderful advancement.

We can even “upload” memories. Next, it will be in Alzheimer’s patients. There will be a brain “memory” chip. A patient will push the chip and remember their address, where they are, the names of relatives, etc. One day, we may even have something like “The Matrix.” Have you ever felt like life may be an illusion? I know I have. According to Michio Kaku, world famous physicist, this is perfectly normal.

The great physicists have questioned that life is an illusion before, or that time is an illusion for that matter. It is because there is no difference between past, present, and future in space time. The future has already happened. We just don’t know it. Why do you think there is a competition by the world’s richest billionaires to go to space? They dream and hope for us to even “colonize” there. Michio, again, says that idea is not far fetched. We will be long gone by the time it happens, though.

For example, weddings may even happen on the moon. Can you imagine? It is a three day trip. Elon Musk is now creating his own moon rockets through his billion dollar enterprise, SpaceX. Elon is one of the richest men in the world! If not THE richest. Jeff Bezos, through his Blue Origin company, just made a trip to space recently! He is the founder of Amazon and former CEO.

You may ask why? Why bother to leave the earth anyway? We are defenseless against meteor impacts. We are defenseless at times due to mother nature. Take a look at the recent hurricanes. Lives lost in New York, flooding, etc. You see, Michio says, the dinosaurs did not have a space program 65,000,000 plus years ago when they became extinct. That is why they are not here today. Lol

75,000 years ago there was a cataclysmic event called the ‘Toba volcano’ event that lasted ten long years! Humans almost became extinct. We’ve been around a long time. It’s why we’re developing outer space programs, again, says Michio.:-)

Apparently, there are three types of alien life that potentially exist (I believe they do); they are different types of “life” who occupy planets or get their energy from stars. I believe we are a ‘young planet,’ again, and physics has confirmed it. If we weren’t, we’d be a Type 1. We would modify the weather: hurricanes, and earthquakes. What’s happening now–the flooding wouldn’t be a problem.

While watching this special I am referring to with Michio Kaku, I also learned: Type 2 would be stellar or use/work around the power of the stars like in Star Trek. Type three would be Galactic. They would be a Star Wars type and travel from planet to planet. Again, I think they’re out there. As a matter of fact, I know they are because I’ve had a dream/vision. Well, I should call it a “visit.” I’ve had a visit. I won’t get into it too much, but I will write about it in a later post. I have already written on it a few times.

Many Christians believe we are living in the “end times.” In my opinion, they often misinterpret the Book of Revelations, especially with their whole “Rapture” idea. One person will be taken; one person will be left. It sounds bizarre in my opinion. I am a Christian, but I tend to be more progressive in my thinking. As one of my favorite authors/pastors put it: “We pray for heaven to come down on EARTH.” We won’t be taken up in the “sky.” It will happen here. That is why we have to take care of our planet and animal kingdom.

We are lacking in this area. I am going to attach the video of Greg Boyd, he’s a New York Times Best selling author, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoWHzuYF798

I hope you enjoy it! It explains why the Rapture is a bad idea and how to accurately interpret some of those confusing passage in scripture.

Lastly, I want to add that one of my favorite physicists, Briane Greene, says the world won’t end for a long time. There have always been hurricanes and wars. There have even been PANDEMICS; even though it’s been a while. But it doesn’t mean it is the end. Brian has said that the universe will probably be destroyed once entropy has it’s way. The universe may keep expanding and the expansion may be too much, or the sun may even swallow the earth up in five billion years or so.

Brian admits it can happen sooner. God can do anything. We don’t know when the world will end. We can just do our best to enjoy every day and take life as it comes. We can try to overcome pain and do our best to be happy!

Some things you may want to know, Part 4!

On average, EVERY single star🌟 has a planet🪐 going around it. One fifth of them have an “earth”🌍 sized planet going around it. How many galaxies✨ are there? There are about a hundred billion galaxies with a hundred billion STARS in EACH one! Do you really think we are alone? In this lifetime, we have already picked up signals.🛸

If there are alien life forms (I believe there are), there are three types. I will explain. But of course first we would want to decipher their language. So, a type one civilization is capable of harnessing planetary🪐 power. They would manage or modify the weather: earthquakes, hurricanes💨, etc. Type 2 would be stellar⭐️. They would play with stars and use the energy out put of a star like in Star Trek! Type three would be galactic: they would roam the galactic space lanes like in Star Wars!☄️

There are planets, stars, and galaxies (and we are made of the same elements that stars are🌠), and that’s it. Most of the universe is made up of dark energy. It’s the energy of ‘nothing.’ It’s a result of the “Big Bang” or Big event when God said, “Let there be light💫.” There was no “bang” because there were no air molecules; thus, there was no noise at that time. Quantum physicists don’t believe the “big event” happened only once. They believe in the multi-verse theory and that we are living in a cosmic bubble with multiple universes as a result of multiple “let there be lights💫.”

Our universe had a beginning, but there are other bubble universes out there that are expanding beyond our three dimensional comprehension. It is hyper space; it is eleven dimensional hyper space. String theorists tell us. The Big “event” is nothing but the collision of universes, according to Michio Kaku (famous world renowned physicist). String theory teaches that inside the “nucleus,” which we once thought was the tiniest particle, is a tiny heart string♥️. God created these tiny heart strings that vibrate and EVERYTHING is made up of this “heart” string. God created a symphony🎶!

Einstein didn’t believe in a personal God; he believe in a God defined as a “God of Spinoza.” God as a singular self-subsistent substance, with both matter and thought being attributes of such. He believed that God was orderly and that God is organized and not random. On a single sheet of paper we can write all the known Laws of the universe. He believed God is beautiful. We can write down Einstein’s equation (one inch long) and string theory is a lot longer, but you can write it all on one piece of paper. The PURPOSE of science✳️ is to determine how the heavens go: the purpose of religion is to figure out how to go to heaven, says Michio!

By the way, I believe in a personal God. The one who parted the Red Sea. I believe in Jesus Christ. His son. I believe in the Holy Trinity. At the same time, I believe that God is orderly, organized, beautiful and amazing. In a way, I believe Holy Father is like a “God of Spinoza.” I also believe that God is all loving and that he loves unconditionally. I don’t focus on condemnation. I believe God is omnipresent (he can be everywhere all at once!).

I believe he is awesome! I believe that “mind can’t contain” as the bible says, “what the Lord has prepared.” I also believe that if there are aliens it doesn’t mean God loves us any less. My God is big enough to love me as if I’m the only one here! You know what I mean? God’s love is not limited by how massive his universe(s) are. We are intelligent beings. God created us. We are his children. We are made to rule over creatures of the land and sea. We are brought to consciousness and may feel like we have free will.

I believe we do to some degree. Some physicists would also argue that everything is in cosmic order and that “free will” is more of an illusion. I believe that God is the greatest Chess player. He knows every way that something can go. He has a plan for even when we fail. That is the way that the famous pastor, Greg Boyd, explained it.

Robots are getting smarter and smarter. They are about as smart as a cockroach. In the coming years, they may become as smart as a cat or a dog. If they ever become as smart as monkeys they may become dangerous. Aliens from out in space can be genetically and cybernetically advanced, according to Micho Kaku! And…the “chip,” folks…will be made for Alzheimer’s patients. It will NOT be made for us. I mean, it WON’T be in the Covid 19 vaccine! Lol🤣

Our Solar System🪐🌍🌠

Sometimes it seems like the sun☀️ is moving. It is not the sun that moves; it is the planets that move. We move, for example, and Mars moves also. Within one to two months, it can move quite far from one part of the sky to the other.

Mars is a planet that has seasons like we do. Not all planets do. Mars actually had water (we found that out in the 1950s and 1960s). Could there have been life? Mars also has two small moons🌕🌖. We have one.

As you know, the rover that recently landed on Mars, Perseverance, made a huge breakthrough by landing on such a rough terrain. It was a first time event that will mark history. It happened last year in August.

It gets so cold on Mars it can be like -100 Fahrenheit. The air is very thin. Your weight on Mars would be one third of what it is here. Mars is called the red planet. There is no “blue” or water anymore.

Mars is actually small. It’s only one fourth of the diameter on earth. It has low gravity. However, billions of years ago Mars was covered in water. So what happened? On earth, wherever water appears, life appears🌊🐃.

Was there life on Mars that disappeared and dried up? The dinosaurs on earth became extinct 65,000,000 plus years ago. The rover, again, Perseverance is searching to see if there was ever life on Mars.

The mission is using a special device to explore the soil. Perseverance will leave tubes of soil on Mars for eight years and then bring them back to earth to detect if there was ever life there.

The sky in Mars is kind of pinkish. Mars is just one sibling planet, though. There are many other planets, so we can begin by looking at planets nearest to the sun🌞. Mercury and Venus are close by.

One difference between Venus and Mercury is that Mercury can get really hot and cold at the same time. There can be a 1000 degree difference between night and day. Mercury is not even the hottest planet. Venus is the hottest.

It’s not as close to the sun as Mercury, but it’s hotter at times. Venus is always 860 F. It doesn’t change. The air is thick; it’s like being half a mile down in the ocean. The pressure is intense. NASA observes Venus from orbit through a radar map.

Most of Venus consists of rolling planes, and it’s kind of like Iowa. There are no oceans. But there are volcanoes. Venus is sometimes called the sister of the earth, but it is incredibly different.

Which planet would you want to go to first, if the time ever comes to send humans to other planets? Let’s take a look at some more planets near the earth. Saturn is famous for its rings around it. Jupiter🪐 is famous for the clouds.

Juno is a mission that’s orbiting Jupiter by NASA. There is at least one mission to every single planet in the solar system. They are all robots; we haven’t sent a human yet. The storms on Jupiter go on for decades and hundreds of years. We suspect there was a storm even going on for millions!

That is a little background on our solar system in our galaxy, the Milky Way🌌. Marvel at all the Lord has done. There are about 125 billion galaxies in the observable universe that we know of so far. But I’m sure there’s more! I believe it’s infinite and that there are multiverses.

The Milky Way is just one galaxy. Scientists estimate that there may be tens of billions of solar systems in our galaxy, alone, perhaps as many as 100 billion. Think about that. Ponder on God’s grandeur! Never doubt his power and magnificence. He holds the galaxies and stars in place; he will hold you together also!

Modern Medicine StarCourse Series

Today I found a video interview with Dr. Craig Spencer, a famous doctor and member of Doctors Without Borders (one of my favorite groups!). I get so excited when I find celebrities who’ve taught a course for the same company I do. He’s also an ER doctor and professor at Colombia University. Did you know that life expectancy used to only be forty years old? It has now increased to 80 years today.

We live in a golden age of medicine and health. In some countries outside of the U.S., though, unfortunately, life expectancy is still only until the 50s. Thus, birthdays are special. There was always a risk that babies may not make it to their first birthday around the world historically.

We didn’t always know as much about disease before as we do now, either. We used to think everything came from bad air. We didn’t know as much about viruses and germs. For example, surgeons many years ago didn’t put on clean robes as they do now. They didn’t understand that they could bring infection and bacteria with them into surgery.

Much later, they realized going in like that does patients a disservice. Infections after surgery were commonplace many years ago. A doctor, Joseph Lister, came up with the idea that germs were the reason for infection, not the air or “spirits” in the hospital. He started sterilizing and made surgery safe. Because of him, surgery has continued.

No access to clean and fresh water is one of the main reasons for poor health even nowadays. We have to sterilize water. You may notice that countries with a flawed water system have more illnesses such as cholera, etc. Believe it or not, salt and sugar save lives! Because sugar mixed with water and a little bit of salt helps prevent dehydration.

The last health tip I will share (from the interview), is everyone needs a good bug spray! We don’t suffer much from malaria in the U.S.; however, the most threatening insect is a mosquito. We still deal with it in other countries throughout the world. Bugs carry the most bacteria.

Regarding vaccines, first and foremost, they do their best to prevent infections—especially certain types of conditions. Vaccines are as “old” as the US and were first used in the fight against smallpox. The last case of smallpox was in 1949. The only disease ever fully eradicated.

Now I will pass it over to Brian Galvin (Varsity Tutors) and Dr. Craig Spencer. Just click on the link to watch the entire video. It’s very interesting. I think you’ll enjoy it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8F1_aqd47es

Lastly, though, I want to point out that Artificial Intelligence (AI) trained machines are already looking at scans and are detecting stuff a radiologist may not be able to. More of this is on the horizon. People are going to live longer, says Dr. Craig Spencer. Due to advancements in technology.

A basic computer chip is also responsible for saving lives. Doctors can target, collect data, and save information. Medicine is only going to improve over the next few decades and beyond!

Bill Nye, ‘the Science Guy’ (a course about vaccines)

Bill Nye, ‘the Science Guy’ taught a course for the same company I teach for, Varsity Tutors! I get so excited when I find celebrities who’ve taught a course for the same company I do. Here he teaches about vaccines and why we need them!

Do you know what the most dangerous animal in the world is? A mosquito. That’s right, it’s not a lion or a shark as one may think, it’s a tiny mosquito. It’s one of the main reasons there is a deadly disease called malaria, in countries mostly near the equator where it’s warm all the time.

The germs or bacteria that get you sick or this virus, called the Covid 19 pandemic, or the parasites that try to live off you, can be fought by our own immune systems. The healthier you are, the better, of course, but believe it or not we are not too much different from animals. We are more like them then you realize. It’s why we’re reaching for ‘herd immunity.’ Viruses can spread like wildfire, and measles, the chicken pox, malaria, or Covid 19 are different from just a regular cold or fever.

Our immune systems are not ready for them! So what the vaccine does is train your immune system so that when your cells (white blood cells) come up against the germ, they capture it and destroy it! They break it up into molecules and devour it. I am going to attach the video so you can see for yourself the benefit, history and importance of vaccines. I hope you enjoy it and find it educational.

Is there other ‘life’ out there? (Part 2)

You may recall this oblong rocklike object found flying in space by astronauts looking through NASA’s telescope. When people studied the trajectory of this object (it was not a comet or an asteroid!), it was the size of a football field and flew past the sun. Some astronauts believe it could’ve been sent to us from alien life, so we know they exist. It definitely came from another galaxy. When people studied it, they found that it was not a comet or an asteroid through evidence. This is not your “grandfather’s comet.” So scientists asked themselves, what if this object IS from another planet. They realized if you had a type of EXO planet, and if a piece of it got knocked off, it would appear like this rocklike object. It doesn’t seem to be some form of extraterrestrial life. I’ve had a vision before. I had a dream that two UFOs visited me, and they looked nothing like this. They were glowing, peaceful, and looked like spaceships. They did not look like a rocklike feature, but they looked very beautiful. I can’t quite explain them or find a photo that is fitting enough. But they came to visit me in the middle of the night while I was sleeping. I believe people were in there, or aliens, I should say. And when I ‘woke up,’ it did not feel like a dream at all. As a matter of fact, I remember feeling myself getting up out of bed to look out the window. In my opinion, if there is extraterrestrial life out there–and I believe there may be, especially due to this experience, I think they are more like us than we realize. I say that because all of the universe(s) follow the same laws of physics, so I imagine that the ‘beings’ on another (potential) planet where this life would be are more like us than we know. However, they would be way more advanced. Brian Greene, world famous author and physicist, has confirmed that if there is other life out there, they are at least 2-3 billion years ahead! We are a new planet. A new earth. Physics even tells us, in an eternal universe, anything can happen. This universe is eternal. And the more scientists learn that this universe could very well be infinite, almost with certainty, the greater the chances that we are not the only ones here. We are not the only ones in the universe(s), in my opinion. It’s the magic of math. The greater the universe expands (we know it is increasingly getting larger), the more galaxies there are (100-200 billion) that we have noted so far. The greater the chance there is “other life” out there. I believe my dream was more of a vision because I felt it was so real when I woke up. I think I was visited. They are out there. They are harmless. They know God as Holy Father, and even Jesus. They don’t necessarily follow our values or have our cultural taboos, but they are peaceful and kind.

Some things you may want to know, Part 3☀️🐰🌙🌌🌸🎂🌏

The sun☀️ is the brightest space🌌 object in the sky. Sometimes it’s so bright, you can see the sun and moon at the same time in the day.🌅 As the day progresses, the sun grows and gets higher in the sky.

The sun commands so much. Not only seasons, but how much daylight we get🌞 and to what hemisphere on earth we get it. The earth’s tilt has a big say, and really helps determine (in conjunction with the sun😎) whether it’s warm or cool.

Plants🍃 and animals🐰grow in the sunny seasons (spring and summer🌼). Some animals🐕 even hibernate and save food for the winter during summer months.

The sun is at the center of our solar system. Long gone are the days when people believed the earth is at the center🌍. We have known for several centuries that the sun is at the center.

At first, many did not want to believe it, but than it was accepted—thanks to Nicolaus Copernicus in the 1500s who made the discovery.

The earth🌏 rotates one time every 24 hours. We are spinning while rotating, although you can’t feel it. But it’s why it appears that the sun🌄 is moving.

But really, the sun cannot move, it is us, the earth, who are moving! It takes the earth 365 days to rotate once around the sun—a birthday!🎂🎈

The night sky is dark. There is no light from the sun; however, the moonlight🌖 is basically light from the sun that is reflecting upon the moon. What I mean is, we wouldn’t be able to see the moon if it weren’t for the sun☀️. At night🎆, you can see planets—objects that move around the sun.

Did you know the sun is a star🌟? It’s true. Actually, there is more stardust✨ in the universe than you realize. We, too, are made from stardust. Our bodies contain the same elements that stars⭐️ do. Everything came from the “Big Bang,” or “Big event🎇,” that happened 13.8 billion years ago.

And, no, there was no loud noise or “bang” as some may think there was. There were no air molecules at that time. God said, “Let there be light💫,” and there was light. That’s all.😃😍👏

Don’t wait until tomorrow, do it today!

The sun is the most beautiful commodity in the world, but we are told that 5 billion years from now, the sun may swallow up the earth. The sun may expand, and its heat may be more than we can take. Dinosaurs became extinct more than 65,000,000 years ago due to an asteroid, but asteroids may not be our problem. Entropy itself will win one day, and everything will come to an end. I mean, everything. I’m not telling you this to discourage you but to make you realize that life is finite. Nothing lasts forever. All buildings, structures, planets, black holes, and even protons will be destroyed. We are told by Brian Greene, best-selling author, professor, and physicist that this will happen at about ten to the sixty-eighth. Imagine that right now are at ten to the tenth, so it won’t be for a long time from now. But it actually can happen sooner, he says. We don’t know when. The universe is expanding, and one day that expansion may be too much. My point in telling you this is to remind you that we are here temporarily. What we do now makes a difference because if it’s not happening now, it may never happen. That’s why I want to encourage you to take that step, whatever it is, for the better to make that dream happen. Whether it’s starting a business or traveling. There is always something we aspire to do. Each of us have at least one thing we want to accomplish. Work on it now. And watch it come to fruition. All we have is today. Why wait until tomorrow?

Some things you may want to know, Part 2🪐

The most obvious thing about the world is if you drop something, it falls. That is the force of gravity in action. God doesn’t keep secrets. This Law of Gravity is what drove Isaac Newton to discover how the universe works. But the question is if you drop something, will it ALWAYS fall back down? Not necessarily. If the force is strong enough, the object could escape the earth’s gravity and go out into space. It’s called escape velocity. But let’s change our focus for a moment here. What is a black hole? It’s the opposite. A black hole is a region of spacetime where gravity is so strong that nothing—no particles or even electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from it. It’s a star that has exploded (a big one). However, black holes will one day dissipate. Along with everything else. Everything you see will be destroyed. Every structure. Every building. Every proton. Even us! This world will not last forever. However, there will be a rebirth–at that time–particles will form in the ‘void.’ And since all we are is “particles” according to physics, that means everything that you see now will be destroyed. Don’t fret too much about it though. Brian Greene, world-famous physicist and author of “Until the End of Time,” says it won’t happen until ten to the sixty-eighth. Now, it has been almost 13.8 billion years since the Big Bang, or “Big event,” that happened that began everything–but everything will disappear at ten to the sixty-eighth years. Imagine that right now; we are at ten to the tenth. There is a chance into this far future that the earth can be sucked into a black hole. Most things in the cosmos will get sucked into black holes. The earth may be swallowed up by the sun in about 5 billion years, though, even sooner than that. The sun will eat up Mercury and Venus and maybe the earth also, we don’t know.

Here is the video I watched that I based this post off of. This was a course that Brian Green taught for the same company I teach for:

Everything will be swallowed up!🎇🪐☀️

It has been said that the sun can ‘burn out’ or swallow up all the entire earth in about 5 billion years! That’s not that far away, considering dinosaurs became extinct due to an asteroid 65,000,000+ years ago. Either way, one day, entropy will have its way, and everything you see will die. Every building, every structure, everything in the universe(s), even black holes! We are a universe that is expanding! But one day, that expansion may be too much! When God said, ‘Let there be light,’ there was light. And there wasn’t a ‘bang’ as some of you may think there was because there was no noise at that time. There were no air molecules. But when God said, ‘let there be light,’ he created everything you see today, including you and me! We are stardust. We are made from the same elements stars are! My point in telling you this is not to discourage you but to advise you to live your life one day at a time. Enjoy all the days of your life while you’re here. Leave your mark in the world.✨🔆🌸💫🌇✳️☀️❇️

The moon is incredible!🌝

The moon is so beautiful. I love the moon and all it’s wonder. Everything God does is perfect.✨ We can only see the moon🌕 because of the light of the sun☀️. Depending upon which part of the moon the sun shines upon, that is all we can see of it🌙. The moon goes through different phases. It takes the moon 27 days to rotate the earth one time. It takes the earth a whole day to rotate once🌍. As you know, it takes the earth 365 days to rotate around the sun☀️ once. The sun provides us with so much! We really can’t live without it. If it were any closer to the earth’s oceans, they would melt. God is perfect, though, and so is his design.🙏 The sun’s🌞 gravity pulls the earth toward it! It’s amazing how gravity works perfectly with the earth, moon, and sun!🌅 ‘The moon’s gravity pulls at the Earth, causing predictable rises and falls in sea levels known as tides. Low tides occur between these two humps. The pull of the moon is also slowing the Earth’s rotation, an effect known as tidal braking, which increases the length of our day by 2.3 milliseconds per century.’ Days are longer now, according to Google.com. What’s amazing is how we figured all this out. Isaac Newton changed the way we understand the universe. He discovered the laws of gravity and motion by watching an apple drop to the ground. God doesn’t keep secrets from us. Get this, all the laws of physics were figured out through this discovery, and even more so, all of the universe(s) follow the same Laws of Physics that we do! It’s amazing how obvious God makes some things to us. Gravity is holding all things together.

Happy 4th of July!🇺🇸❤️🤍

Happy 4th of July, friends!☄️My inspiration is my dad! He’s led me to physics. Now he rests with Holy Father and Our Lord Jesus near the star, Kolob, the closest to God’s throne room. It also keeps our earth in place. It’s at the center of our home, the Milky Way!🌌 God doesn’t make mistakes! For this fourth of July special, I wanted to share about my beloved dad, Yacoub❤️. He loved and fought for this country too! He knew so much about God and believed in science. Thanks to all of you who have been reading my posts about physics for the last year and a half.🙏 I have grown in my studies and am learning more each day. It doesn’t matter how long you study this impressive field. You could never know enough! Today I found out that the world-renowned and famous physicist, Brian Greene, teaches courses for the same company I work for, Varsity Tutors! I’ve been following him for a while. I knew Varsity Tutors hired teachers that were celebrities. But I am still honored! Well, I’ll keep this one short and sweet.🎊 I hope you’re all having a wonderful 4th of July!🇺🇸 God bless this wonderful and young land!💙

Black holes and the slowing of time!

Ever wonder why time slows down near the edge of black hole? It’s because gravity doesn’t just pull down on matter and energy. It pulls down on time itself. Gravity is the warping of time. It’s why clocks will click off at different times according to where they are located. It’s why we have different time zones: EST vs. Pacific, for example. But as you get closer to the edge of a black hole, your clock gets slower and slower until it eventually stops! So, time stops because it is eternal (if you were caught near a black hole or even sucked inside!).


What is entanglement? Let’s take a look at this theory for a minute. It is when two widely separated particles act as if they are just next to one another. Separating them would make you think they are independent; however, they are not independent. There is communication. The particles behave the same way and even act the same. One particle could be in Los Angeles, and one could be in New York City. It doesn’t matter. They are influencing each other. They are entangled. There is something called ‘particle spin.’ Particles like to spin around.

But what is weird about entanglement is that you can have two particles (both spinning in opposite directions) and be widely separated. Still, when you measure each particle, they are spinning simultaneously! They are influencing one another. This phenomenon has left the world’s greatest physicists baffled for years. Einstein even called it ‘spooky action at a distance.’ They can even be on opposite sides of the universe or in the same room! One will spin up, and one will spin down at the same time!


Why is it relevant? Well, God says we are entangled with him in various places in the bible. When one died, ‘all died,’ for example. And the same with scripture that tells us, ‘we have been raised with Christ,’ before we were even alive. Also, we are made in his image and likeness. We are ‘duplicates.’ We are ‘paired’ whether or not we realize it. It happens everywhere. There is this entanglement all across the universe. Everything in the universe is duplicated.


However, let’s imagine that there is a chance the one can fall into a black hole. Ironically, if one of the entangled particles falls into the black hole, the other will not. So, why does only one of them fall into the hole? Why does the ‘thread’ snap? Because when one of them falls into the hole, time stops. Thus, there is no reason for a ‘duplicate’ any longer. The one in the black hole is eternal. You are no longer entangled. You are one with God! Some of these notes are based on Brian Greene’s ‘World Science Festival’s live lecture’ and Q and A online.

Some things you may want to know🪐

Do you want to know how there is proof that a Big Bang or ‘Big event’ started everything? It’s called microwave background radiology. Look it up. The early universe did not look the way it does now. The Milky Way got its name because it looked like “spilled milk.” The sun is at the center, not the earth, as some thought. Our planet revolves around the sun. The moon revolves around the earth. At first, the galaxies were just starting to take their form for the first billion years. Now, we have a hundred billion of them that we know of so far! If the earth’s oceans were any closer to the sun, they would evaporate and melt. God’s work is perfect. He doesn’t make mistakes.

Sadly, the dinosaurs became extinct due to an asteroid over 65 million years ago. It has been documented that we may have gotten here within the last 5 million years. I’ve read we are just a few hundred thousand years old, but I believe we’re older than that. Some believe the universe may have always been there. I think it was, but God caused the “swelling” of the universe; He created it. And the expansion is happening up until now! Every one of our bodies is traceable to the Big Bang. We are basically, stardust. We are made from the same elements that stars are.

Newton’s Laws of Physics helped us figure out that things are “on Earth as they are in heaven” when he figured out the laws of motion. The force of gravity pulling apples from their orchards also directs the moon in its gravity around the earth. This Law of Physics is universal and contained throughout all the entire universe(s). Gravity is everything.

If there is “life” outside of this planet, they are abiding by the same laws of physics that we are; however, the aliens would not speak English or have the exact social expectations that we would. We could imagine them as having two hands. But we don’t know that they would have two hands for sure. A handshake may not necessarily mean a greeting to them, either. We would have to communicate with them through science and nothing more.


The speed of light is faster than anything in the universe. Nothing has ever gone as fast as the speed of light. We thought we would not do many things: like go to the moon or travel to Mars, for example. We have done more than we imagined, and there is still a lot more. I believe that God oversees all of the universe(s) and his magnificent creation! The more proof we find (through math and testing) that there could be multiverses, the more of a chance that other life could exist out there.

I never thought I would say this, but I believe they do. I think they know God too, even Jesus. They are harmless. Professor Brian Greene, the famous physicist and New York Times best-selling author, says, “If there is other life out there, they are at least 2-3 billion years ahead of us. We are a new planet.”

So imagine how much more advanced than us they are? He believes they exist. I do too. I had a dream as a teenager. Well, it was more like a vision that felt so real after I came out of it, I didn’t feel like I was sleeping at all. Anyway, I had a dream I was visited by two beautiful spaceships. They came in front of my bedroom window deep into the middle of the night. They were glowing, peaceful and breathtakingly beautiful. I will talk more about it more in a later post. Some of these notes are based off of ‘Astrophysics for People in a Hurry.’ It is Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson’s book.

There is ‘another world’

God is the greatest mathematician that has ever lived. A mathematician of the highest order. He used very advanced mathematics in constructing the universe. God is contained in the mysteries of modern physics and vice versa. I have never felt so clear or ‘at at home’ since I began studying physics.⚛️ I bet Aristotle wishes he knew during his life what we know now. There are patterns. These patterns tend to repeat themselves, and they reveal a lot. As far as everyday life is concerned, we’ve found the underlying ingredients. Physics is not done, but it has discovered some big things. There are still mysteries. But the mysteries do not consist of how the moon and the stars behave, for example. But most do not understand Quantum mechanics, anyway. Electrons make all light. But what physicists expected to happen with the electrons did not occur. Thus Quantum mechanics was born. When you look at the electron, it looks like a particle. However, it is a wave. The electron is a wave, and that represents reality. Why does it change from when you look at it compared to when you don’t look at it? It’s because we are Quantum Systems ourselves whether we realize it or not. So therein lies the problem. There’s this thing called entanglement, and it still baffles the most outstanding physicists in the community today. It means that the superposition of the wave vs. the superposition of the electron means that there are two versions, the electron as a point and the electron as a wave. But you’ve only seen the particle in one superposition. You will never see it on the other. The other is a separate world—a separate universe. There is one you in both—a duplicate. What happens here in this universe does not occur in the other universe, according to physics. But you will never visit that other world or know it. There is even an app called Universe Splitter and you can ask it to make a prediction. A real photon gets emitted from a lab in Geneva, Switzerland (I love how so much physics stuff happens in Geneva, Switzerland!). Well, anyway, it’s an excellent app. You should download it. But before you lose sleep and wonder about this other ‘self.’ Keep in mind, the greatest physicists in the world tell us only to act as though we are in this universe. Technically, we are particles like electrons. God said that he would give us ‘new bodies.’ God also said we are made in his ‘likeness and image.’ This entanglement, my friends, just means we are entangled [with Christ]. As a matter of fact, the whole universe is a wave. We are a part of it. We become one with him.🙏🙏🙏🌌🔆⚛️🎇🕊️💫😇✨

There is more than one you

You are part of the Quantum World. You are a particle. The universe came forth through a particle. You are a wave; the entire universe is a wave. The electron is a particle that we used to think was a single point and nothing more, but then around 1909, there was a huge discovery–we learned that the particle could be a wave.


That means the particle can come up in any part of ‘the wave.’ There is a different probability (or chances) that the electron can appear in other parts of the wave. This was a huge breakthrough and is at the heart of Quantum Physics. Since technically, we are particles–it proves that ‘we can show up in any part of “the wave,” also.


Quantum Physics also suggests that there are many worlds; again, back to this fact that we learned that the “object” or electron could appear in a haze of probability (wave). How can we be here or there? Where is there? I’m sure you don’t feel like you are anywhere but “here” on earth. Close to your friends, family, and planted in your home, and close to your pets.


However, according to Quantum Mechanics, you have a duplicate. EVERY single particle (EVERYTHING) in the universe(s) has a duplicate. That’s because there’s this thing called “entanglement.” And it has left the greatest physicists scratching their heads for decades!


This thing called “entanglement” drives the universe because it proves a double of every particle, even YOU! So, one may ask, where else can you be? Especially since you don’t ‘feel’ like you are anywhere else but here? We are a culture very dependent on our senses. We believe what we can see, hear, taste, or feel is true–and often believe nothing more.


We are devoid of imagination. But physicists aren’t. They know that what is real is what cannot be seen too. It has nothing to do with religion, but ironically, the ‘religious’ cannot see past five feet in front of them. I’ll put it to you like this, imagine that if all that there was is here, you would be limiting God’s talent and power. Because that would limit God to creating you, maybe, you may even feel like everything is not centered around ‘you.’


After all, we used to believe that the earth was at the center of the universe. Nicolaus Copernicus detailed the radical idea that the earth (along with other planets) rotates around the sun in the early 1500s. However, it took more than a century for it to become widely accepted!


In a culture that likes to be absorbed with themselves, how could we imagine that there may be “two” of us, and where is our other self? How could we imagine that we are not at the center of the universe and of primary importance? How could we imagine that our ‘world’ is not central to the entire scope of the universe(s)?


The truth is, ALL those other worlds–trillions and trillions and more can exist without little old us. So, one may ask, well then, if God made all these things–how can he care about us? Well, God can still care about us because God is not limited in his love like we are. He is not too occupied in one universe that he doesn’t recognize the other universes. God is not self-absorbed.


Again, what do we do with this problem of ‘our other self?’ No need to worry about that because there has always been another ‘self.’ Romans 14:8 tells us, “If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we belong to the Lord.” This other self is the Lord’s. Just as you are, humble yourself. You cannot control things. You are not at the center. You are not “chosen” or “more loved” or approved. “When one died, all died. And he came to die for ALL of us.”

The different worlds theory may rattle the worlds’ greatest physicists, but it is this–anything is possible, there are many ‘worlds.’ As a matter of fact, there may be infinite worlds. In an endless “eternal” world, not only can anything happen, every rare thing will.


In a rare world where God can produce infinite numbers and copies of ourselves, why should you believe that you’re next to nothing ‘size’ in the universe would not justify that there is a God who can be personable with you? God loves you just the way you are. He is shaping and molding you.

There are many worlds!🌌🪐🌠

You can understand Quantum Mechanics. Quantum Mechanics is necessary to understand why the sun shines, for example. Quantum mechanics is necessary to understand so much in the world! The most significant discovery of the twentieth century was that the electron is a wave.

By 1909, we discovered that the electron is again, a wave, it’s how you see light–through vibrating electrons. It is not a point particle in an orbit, it’s a wave. The electron can be a wave and a particle. It’s shape becomes spread out. It can look like a spherical wave; however, you never see the electron coming out in any area.

The electron goes back to looking like it’s a point again. But electrons can be different when you’re looking at them from when you’re not looking at them. Really, they are all spread out in wave functions when you’re not looking at them, but when you look at them they look like particles.

Is that your eyes playing tricks on you? Where does the electron go? Which one is reality? The wave function represents reality.

We are Quantum Systems ourselves. So it is not easy for a Quantum System to understand another Quantum System. We are ALL in the Quantum World. YOU obey the laws of Quantum Mechanics.

Plus, there is this thing called entanglement. Every particle (electron) has a duplicate. It may spin a different direction, but both particles behave the same way and even look the same. You see, even if they are spinning in opposite directions: they are the same. The reason the electron changes when you look at it is because you are a duplicate.

Even the famous Higgs Boson particle has a duplicate. You see, all particles are entangled. Everything is basically, entangled. YOU are entangled. Try to wrap your brain around that. This used to even spook Einstein out.

So, how are there duplicates of everything in the universe? Are there parallel universes? Now, physicists say there could be assimilation and even copies of yourself out there. How do you sleep at night and not wonder what the other ‘you’ is doing right now ?

What doesn’t happen in this universe, will happen in the other. I recommend you download the app, Universe splitter, it sends your message to a real lab in Geneva, Switzerland that emits a photon, and splits the universe to make a prediction for you.

You are in two different states of environment whether you feel it or not. Don’t try to wrap your head around this, that there are two of you, in different ‘worlds.’ It’s sometimes called the many worlds interpretation.

We don’t know how many worlds there are out there, we don’t even know if they are finite or infinite. We don’t know for sure that there are an infinite number of worlds. But even if they’re finite, its a really big number of worlds!

Instead of stressing over the fact that there are many worlds, know that once you learned that electrons could be in a super position, you learned that people could be in superpositions too.

So, the electron can go jumping into different parts of the ‘wave,’ and so can you! Well, I don’t lose sleep over that information. Instead, it fascinates me because I know that I am made in the image and likeness of Him; thus, I experience what ‘he’ experiences.

We feel the same things. We share. We are duplicates. We are entangled [with Christ]! The Bible says we are entangled whether or not we realize it.

God’s love is BIG enough to love only us!

The multi-verse theory is more than you can imagine. Picture a trillion trillion+ other universes. If there is a vast multiverse with all sorts of things going on, the likelihood of ‘other life’ out there becomes higher, says Sean Carroll, world-renowned physicist, and mathematician. I think they’re out there, and they know God. I mean God, the Holy Father, and Jesus.


Famous physicist Brian Greene says, “If there is alien life out there, they are at least 2-3 billion years ahead of us!” So, why would they care about little old us? Well, if other life does exist, it may be so far away and so much more advanced to even care about us or what we’re doing here.


The probability that the multiverse theory is true is based on data. If there are many different ‘regions of space,’ life can exist in these sub-places. What is the probability that this is true? It’s high. It’s based on math. Mathematical principles tend to drive physics.


String theory says that the Laws of Physics can be different from place to place. But we don’t know if that is true for sure. However, the multiverse is very sensible to consider. Because God exists, life exists. Without God, there would be no life on earth or potentially anywhere for that matter.


Atheists don’t see a God who can be a caring or loving being that has a place set up for us, the afterlife. Few scientists especially cannot accept this. I’ve heard that if there was a God, why would he hide himself? But God is not hiding. He is all around.


We can see him in nature. We can see him in each other. We can adhere to his voice. We can say our prayers. We can find his inspiration from reading the Bible. He talks to us through our intuition. If it is good, pure, right, and whole; it is from the Lord. When God is involved, there is no doubt or shadow of turning.


I’ve heard the argument that if there were a God, entropy still would be the same way it was (low) as in the ‘early universe.’ What people don’t understand, though, is that God is perfect. He doesn’t have to make sense.


I’ve watched a demonstration of a Hubble space telescope in Sean Carroll’s talk that discusses all the galaxies with each having a hundred billion stars, and he says that none of them are necessary for us to exist on earth. So, why are they there?

Sean tends to think that we can’t argue that God would put them there for us to exist. Because they can be there with or without us, that is true. We are very tiny compared to a vast universe, now we suspect, universes. So, why would God make us? He doesn’t need to make ALL that to make us.

Why wouldn’t God only make our home the Milky Way? God’s love for us in a multiverse with a trillion trillion-plus universes is BIG enough to love just ‘us.’

His love is BIG enough to choose us. It may be big enough to love ‘others,’ perhaps, out there. Regardless, God’s love is BIG enough to not only love just ‘us.’ It is big enough for God to love ONLY you, all by yourself!

All Things Are Possible

I just learned by listening to Sean Carroll that I am an eternalist. I am not a presentist. I don’t believe that we have only ‘now.’ An eternalist understands Einstein’s theory of relativity and that there is really no such thing as ‘now.’ Time is not ‘the same for all observers.’ I believe in that. It’s one of the reasons we have different ‘time zones.’ I experience it every day while working with people. It’s a fact. A lot of my clients are on Pacific time where it’s still sunny there while the sun is coming down here. An eternalist also believes that the universe is 4 dimensional and may be a hologram kind of imitating the movie, ‘Star Wars.’ If you’ve followed my science posts before, you may have read my articles on the holographic principle. The latest theory definitely proves that we feel as though we are on a 3 Dimensional surface, but it very well could be a 2 dimensional grid. What people don’t understand is that God is the greatest computer design we could ever have. Some people tend to think of God as the big man with the white beard whose very old and waiting to scold them! God is modern, though. God is scientific. He can do anything! Just take a look at galaxies, systems that stand alone made up of trillions of stars! And there are at least 100 billion of them that we’ve seen so far! God did that. He is more than you can fathom. Do I believe there is no such thing as now and that the past, present, and future are equally real in space-time as the theory of relativity suggests? You bet! Do I believe that the universe is eternal and 4 dimensional? Even though it feels like a three dimension? Sure, why not? Do I even believe that the entire universe (now believed to be maybe even made up of parallel universes), could be a hologram? Yes, because with God, ALL things are possible! And I mean ALL things!🌌☀️🎑🌈🌗🎇🌙✨💓🎈🌊🐈🕊⚛️

The moon🌝🌗🎑

I’ve read that the moon helps balance our climate. ‘It may even be fundamental to the maintaining and stabilization of the seasons.’ It also stabilizes the earth’s rotation as it wobbles back and forth slightly on its axis.

We have a perfect designer—God. So the sun has a purpose, the moon has a purpose, the stars, well, you get it! The moon also causes tidal waves. High and low tides are caused by the moon. The moon’s gravitational pull generates the tidal force.

The tidal force causes Earth—and its water—to bulge out on the side closest to the moon and then back onto the side farthest from the moon.

God is amazing. He can’t be anything but perfect. The roles that (the sun and) moon play and how with the earth they all work together just reminds me of how life is perfect.

No matter what happens. There are no mistakes when you walk by faith. There is a cosmic order.✨ All things work together unto good (for those who love the Lord).

Above you have the moon pictured as a lunar eclipse that occurs when the Moon moves into the Earth’s shadow. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are exactly or very closely aligned with Earth between the other two, and “only on the night of a full moon.”

There is no time, there is entropy🌌

We feel like we’re moving through time, or flowing through it. However, time is not what we think it is. From a physics perspective, the idea that time passes or that we move through time–disappears. It’s no where to be found in the fundamental Laws of Physics, but it’s clearly in our every day lives.

So, what is going on? Is time an illusion? The passage of time notion disappears from a physicist point of view. There are Laws of Motion and Gravitation that help us predict the future, where there will be eclipses, for example. You can EVEN predict the past.

The Laws of Physics wil tell you what was going on in past history. It’s called Conservation of Information. All the information you need is in it. It can predict the future and past. This goes against the idea that time is flowing. There is nothing special about ‘now.’

The Laws of Physics describe EVERY moment of time being of an EQUAL importance. There is no distinction between past, present, and future in space-time, taught Einstein. We have records, memories, photographs, and artifacts.

However, we don’t have photogrpahs or autographs that tell us about the future in the same way as we do our past. We feel as though the past is settled but as though the future is not, and that we can make choices. But we don’t believe we can make choices to change the past.

So why are they so different? It’s called entropy. Entropy is the disorderness of the system. We are taught that entropy increases over time. There is a directionality. The second law of thernodanamics says that entropy increases over time. The first law of thermodynamics is that energy is constant.

“But in terms of the second, over time entropy increases,” says Sean Carroll–a famous physicist. The second law does tell us entropy will be higher in the future but lower in the past. When you look at a cup of coffee, you don’t see the atoms in which it’s made. It gets more mixed together and harder to distinguish over time right after you mix it.

‘Think of the arrow of time this way, it is not built into the fundamental nature of reality. We live in the aftermath of the big bang,’ says Sean Carroll, a world renowned physicist. ‘It was very low entropy and orderly in the beginning.’

Since time is relative, and the past, present, and future are equally as real in space-time, I often wonder if I can still regard myself as the broken sixteen-year-old I once was and doing all of this from my hospital bed. Just a thought!🤔

Walking on water 🌊

According to physics, we are “particles.” As a matter of fact, we can at times even be waves! You see, a wave is a particle. We learned that through the famous double split experiment. Now, that’s not to say you can act as though you are just a particle. Of course, you can’t; you’re human. You are made up of a “bag of particles,” and please don’t take offense to that. I believe you have a soul, a spirit, a mind, and faith, etc. But we are also made up of billions and billions of atoms. In a world where gravity holds everything together, we would never try to walk on water.


But if God didn’t make Quantum physics, the Lord would’ve never been able to do it, and I’ll tell you why. ‘Quantum physics is magic because none of it issues forth from your common sense. Particles pop in and out of existence, one time, it’s a wave, and the next time it’s a particle. It can interact with itself. You measure the particle here, but it shows up there! It can even pull you away from the gravity field of a black hole. And in our mind, NOTHING can get you out of a black hole. It is E=MC2!” says Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson.


It’s a common phenomenon known to the universe but unbeknownst to us because we don’t live in that place. So it’s not supposed to make sense. We are not living in the universe of Quantum mechanics, where everything is broken down to its tiniest parts. But since God is omnipresent, he can live in all universes. He created them. In the Quantum World, Jesus walking on water makes sense. In this world, it doesn’t. Physics agrees with the mystical idea that with God, all things are possible. In an eternal universe, not only can anything happen, but every rare thing does!

Quantum Physics🎆

Did you know that you are technically considered a “particle?” It’s true. ‘We are nothing more than a spec,’ says The Science Guy, Bill Nye. Quantum mechanics proves that it’s true. Quantum mechanics involves breaking ‘things’ down to their tiniest parts.

We are basically particles, as a matter of fact, we are waves, try to wrap your head around that for a moment. A particle is a wave. We learned that after the famous, ‘double slit experiment.’ There are many worlds.

I’ll tell you why. A particle is a wave, or an electron (you), and you can pop up into any part of a ‘wave.’ Back to what I’ve talked about before, there is more than one choice or route you can take and what doesn’t happen in one universe, can happen in another.

For example, in one universe, you may decide to become a nurse. In another universe, you may not. But you would never know because you cannot communicate with ‘that’ other universe.

It’s called entanglement. The two particles (electrons) can be on different ends of the earth. One can be in Los Angeles and one in New York. But they will imitate each other and even behave the same way.

Before you get spooked out by this idea that there could be another ‘you’ in another world, keep in mind, physicists tell us to live as though you are only living in this one!

Actually, in an infinite universe, such as the one we’re in, there can be copies of you out there being made right now. This supports the idea of string theory and that there may be multiple universes.

The Bible tells us we are made in his image and likeness and thus, entangled with Christ! There’s another version of you out there (in Jesus🙏).❤️⚛️

Don’t give up!

As I gaze upon this beautiful photo, I think of our eternal universe and all the possibilities there are in life. And I struggle. I’ll tell you why. The greatest physicists say that we are in an eternal universe and anything is possible. As a matter of fact, not only can anything happen—every rare thing will happen in this life. The Bible tells us in several places that with God, all things are possible. Not with man, but with God, ‘these things are possible.’ In a world devoid of hope at times. It’s hard to feel hope or that the ‘thing’ you’ve been waiting for can happen. However, in an eternal universe, such as the one we’re in, it can! Here God and physics align! However, it has to be compatible with the Law of Physics. There is a cosmic order. God is still in control, and while he doesn’t allow everything—he will enable more than we realize. That thing you’ve been waiting for can happen. Don’t give up!

The Gregorian Calendar

I hope your weekend is good!🙏☀️ Did you know the Gregorian calendar that we use today was initially the Julian calendar? The Pope changed it back in 1582 because the Julian calendar was wrong. I’m watching a podcast of Joe Rogan’s with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, and it’s very interesting.

In 1582, when Pope Gregory XIII introduced his Gregorian calendar (developed by Jesuit Catholic Priests), Europe adhered to the Julian calendar, first implemented by Julius Caesar in 46 B.C. Since the Roman emperor’s system miscalculated the solar year’s length by 11 minutes, the calendar had since fallen out of sync with the seasons. The Jesuits had to take ten days out of the calendar and compensate for it through Leap Days.

B.C. means ‘Before Christ,’ but it has since been renamed to indicate, ‘Before Common Era,’ and this attempts to take the religion out of it. C.E., which means ‘Christ Entered,’ has now been changed to ‘Common Era.’ The term in Latin is ‘Anno Domini’ (A.D.), or ‘in the year of our Lord.’ There isn’t a year ‘0’ because 0 doesn’t exist as a Roman numeral. I still use B.C. and A. D. in my writings.

solar year — the time it takes Earth to orbit the sun — lasts around 365 days. The main difference between the Julian and Gregorian calendar is that an average year in the Julian calendar is 365.25 days while an average year in The Gregorian calendar is 365.2425 days. Again, the Jesuit priests had to take ten days out of the calendar back in Oct. of 1584.

The Gregorian calendar is the calendar used all over the world today! We have seasons because Earth’s axis – the imaginary line that goes through the Earth and around which the Earth spins — is tilted. … The “fixed” tilt means that, during our orbit around our Sun each yeardifferent parts of Earth receive sunlight for different lengths of time. However, the year that corresponds to our seasons is slightly different from the year that corresponds to our sun.

Here is a link to the video I’m watching. The part about the calendar system starts at about 54:35 seconds if you’d like to start there:

The Sun Is a Star 😎🌠

The sun is amazing. It’s a star. All suns are stars and vice versa. As a matter of fact, our bodies are even made of the same elements that stardust is made of. What makes our solar system unique is we only have one sun in it, though. Most solar systems have two or more suns in them. Can you imagine if we had two suns? Our sun’s gravity pulls the earth closer to it, constantly. God is like gravity. He’s pulling us closer to the son and holding us together. “He is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Col. 1:17). NIV.☀️😎🌞🌅🔆🌟✨💫

Is there other life out there?

We are told that our galaxy, the Milky Way, is 13.8 billion years old per the Big Bang! We’re only a handful of billions of years old. It’s not that long in comparison to other galaxies. What I mean is, they could be a few billion years ahead of us. So, think about if we were to move from now into a few billion years into the future, it could be radically different. It’s not likely that if there is other life, they are only 10,000 years ‘older’ than us. We are a young universe and planet! We can’t all be at the same starting point. It’s unlikely that some alien world has observed us. And ‘UFO means an unidentified flying object; it doesn’t necessarily mean alien,’ says Neil deGrasse Tyson. However, I did have a ‘dream’ that I was visited by two UFOs once. And it felt so real. To this day, I question whether it really happened or not and think about it! I never thought I would find myself saying this, but I do believe there can be life on other planets!🪐🛸👽🌌✨🌠🌟

God’s Throne Room✨⭐️🌟

Apparently, God’s throne room is a cluster of stars and even has a name. NASA has a picture of the cluster of stars that I’ve copied below here. This cluster holds our Milky Way Galaxy together and time slows down there. When you apply Einstein’s theory of relativity, a day in heaven is equivalent to a thousand years on earth. And that is how it is there, in heaven.

‘That’s because time varies based on velocity, energy, and mass (gravity). Let’s take mass (gravity). According to Einstein’s theory of relativity, as gravity increases, time slows down.’ Time moves more quickly for someone in a low gravity environment than it does for someone in a high gravity environment.

This may explain why time moves slower in God’s throne room, again. The Lord dwells where gravity is high relative to that on earth. We know that His throne is in a ‘star cluster’ containing many large stars, something which would create massive gravity and slow it down perhaps to where a day is ‘equivalent to a thousand years.’

Abraham 3:2 reads: “And I saw the stars, that they were very great, and that one of them was nearest unto the throne of God: and there were many great ones which were near unto it.” The name of the one nearest to God’s throne is Kolob. Abraham tells us that Kolob “govern[s] all those [worlds] which belong to the same order as that upon which [Abraham] standest.”

Kolob could be at the center of our galaxy. The gravitational pull created by this cluster of huge stars (along with gravity from dark matter) holds our galaxy together and keeps the outer rims (where we are) from flying off into the intergalactic space.

The massive gravity in that cluster would slow down time, perhaps to the point where one day equaled a thousand years on earth. The Book of Abraham was canonized by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1880.

The ‘sun🌞’

Light is everywhere, and it is the ‘fabric’ of space that keeps the sun in orbit — the fabric is gravity. The gravity of the sun actually keeps the earth near it and in orbit, also. I have heard that gravity is everything. It holds us together. As a matter of fact, the sun’s gravity is pulling the earth closer to it! God is like gravity. He pulls us towards the ‘sun’ and keeps everything together. ☀️🌌⚛️🌠🌞🌅😎

We are entangled💜

String theory tells us there can be multiple universes and that the Big Bang may have occurred many times. If an electron is present in Los Angeles, for example, it can also be present in New York. It will be an identical particle that will look and even behave in the same manner. The particles can be on opposite ends of the earth, but they will still act in the same way. Another name for this phenomenon is entanglement. Einstein used to call it ‘spooky action at a distance.’ This is why the latest physicists now believe there may be multiverses and even assimilation, ‘copies’ of ourselves. We know that the Bible tells us: ‘For Christ’s love compels us because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again (2 Cor. 5:14-15).’ We are ‘entangled’ with Christ. The Bible also says that in heaven, Christ “will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body” (Philippians 3:21). We are made in his image and likeness.⚛️🙏🎇✨☀️☦️💖🌙

Everything is in Cosmic Order 🎇✨⚛️

The universe is an interesting place. Everything is in cosmic order. That’s not to say we don’t have a ‘say’ or choices in what happens in our lives. But we do not control everything. Ultimately, God is in control. The more we learn to trust him, the better off we will be. Some imagine God to act as a significant obstacle stopping us from promotion at times. I hate when people say, ‘Why God, why?’ It is a pet peeve of mine. God is the opposite of what they think. He wants to see our dreams happen. We can be co-workers with God, but we have to do our part. We can’t be stagnant and expect him to do everything, nor can we blame him when things don’t go the way we would like. Part of being an adult is realizing that we can’t have everything we want in this life. We can work towards goals and try to accomplish them. But ultimately, God is the one in the driver’s seat. He wants what’s best for us and to see us happy.❤️

A new earth 🌍

Good morning, friends. One day everything will be swallowed up by entropy. Every building, every structure, everything you see (including us) will come to an end. There will be no such thing as thought itself. Thought itself will be swallowed up by life. This is predicted to happen far into the future, but anything can happen, so it could happen sooner. I don’t mean to sound so dim. Our mortality is real. Fortunately, in the Book of Revelation, John has a vision while on the island of Patmos, and we are told that he saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. He wrote that he saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully adorned for her husband. We are taught by physics that once there is nothing left other than some particles forming in the void, there can be a ‘reforming’ of particles. All we are is particles brought to consciousness, quarks, neutrinos, protons, etc. In an eternal universe, life repeats itself.☀️🖤⚛️🌅🏞🌠🦒

God proves science!🌟🎆🌠

I have studied physics for a year and a half now, and all of the theories I’ve learned further prove God and his excellent existence! The fact is that the greatest physicists now say we are moving here through our imagination. We are made up of billions and billions of atoms that can never die.

The Theory of entanglement holds across the universe. These are Biblical principles taught to us through physics, but you would never know it without studying the universe. The Bible teaches us we are ‘entangled with Christ.’ Every human being has already ‘died’ because when One died, all died’ the Bible tells us.

‘That we no longer live for ourselves but live for the one who died and rose again for us.’ Modern physicists are now teaching that everything is happening at the same time. Actually, ‘time’ is the only thing stopping everything from happening all at once; however, the past, present, and future are equally real. In space time, there is no distincition.

Scientists are now suggesting that there may be multiverses because of the Theory of entanglement. ‘When one electron is in any given space, there is a complete duplicate that will even move and act the same way in a different place.’ The two particles can be on opposite sides of the universe, but they will behave the same way. It is entanglement.

Technically, we are ‘particles,’ so this means we also have ‘duplicates.’ Physicists are now talking about assimilation. Like, are there multiple universes where there are copies and copies of ourselves? Where else are we? We can be here and there. I believe we can occupy heaven and earth at the same time, in my opinion, so this Theory of entanglement makes total sense.

I can also accept all of it because I know how amazing God is. It doesn’t challenge my faith. It strengthens it! The Theory of relativity teaches us the importance of light. There is light in everything. God created it. The first thing he created was light. Light makes up the entire universe. Our bodies are composed of billions of atoms, again, that absorb and emit light.

According to Einstein’s Theory, light’s speed is the only thing in the universe that is constant. I listen to some great physicists such as Dr. Briane Greene, Leonard Susskind, and Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. People who only listen to what their church teaches, who are afraid to ‘leave the pew,’ so to speak, and study science are missing out.

God has put all the puzzle pieces together for us. Because God is perfect, and so is his design. God cannot be anything but perfect, so all the answers have been revealed and science is discovering more. Physicists are just adding to what they already know, and with every mind-blowing discovery, God’s magnificence is revealed!

Religion and Science⚛️

Many religious people push back on science and physics ideas in fear of accepting something that may go against the Bible. Most Christians are afraid to admit the idea of a Big Bang, or they never even study it, for example. But due to microwave background radiation, we know it existed, among many other reasons.

Not all physicists are atheists or non-religious; as a matter of fact, many are open to the idea of there being a God or even Jesus. Many Christians are not open to all the theories of physics, though. We have to understand that religion isn’t supposed to give us all the information about the universe. It cannot replace scientific research.

The Big Bang theory says that 13.8 billion years ago, this tiny little microscopic point in space generated so much energy, and it went bang! God created light! Then, 13.8 billion years later, humans are created. We are the last thing made in the Book of Genesis also. The sun was formed about 9.2 billion years after the Big Bang!

If you divide 9.2 into 13.8, you have precisely 2/3. So the fraction is 2/3 from light, our sun was created (and as you know, 2/3 is equal to 4/6). So 2/3 and 4/6 are the same fractions. Moses wrote in the Book of Genesis and said, ‘Light was created the first day.’ He says the last thing created were human beings.

Of course, Moses uses the term ‘6 days,’ and the Big Bang uses billions of years. But both agree on the beginning and the end. Moses also says the sun was created on the 4th day of a six-day creation cycle. So there you have it, 4/6. Again, the sun was created and matches perfectly mathematically with the Big Bang Theory.

The language of physics is math. If you want to learn more: please check out this video by John Pennington: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Od9NZC1tJ3I

In many places in the Bible, we are told that God is light. ‘God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.’ Did you know that the speed of light moves at a rate so fast with such an enormous mass that everything around it starts to slow? Light is eternal. Not only did God create it, but he is light as well.

We are told that we are made in His likeness and image. The neat thing is, the Big Bang was not even the beginning. Space-time existed before the Big Bang ever happened is what the world’s greatest physicists tell us. Again, that’s because God is eternal. He has no beginning and end.

The Boltzmann Brain🧠☀️🌌

If you’ve never heard of the Big Bang, it was the ‘rapid swelling of space and time’ that started our universe 13.8 billion years ago; however, today, I found out that physicists assume that ‘space and time’ have always been there! If that is true, when did space-time begin? It’s like asking, when did God begin? We know he’s always existed, but was there ever a ‘beginning?’ I don’t believe so because we know that God is eternal. He will always be there!

So, it’s not really about how the universe ‘began’ when studying the Big Bang; it’s about how the universe EVOLVED. Something was already there–space-time (God!). The universe was already in existence before the Big Bang occurred, which the world’s greatest physicists tell us. So, WHAT caused the ‘swelling’ or push outward? Gravity.

Newton taught us that gravity could only pull inward, which left us scratching our heads. When Einstein came along, he taught us that gravity doesn’t only pull inward. It also pushes outward! Gravity is everything! It’s called repulsive gravity that caused the universe to ‘swell’ and form. Gravity holds all things together and even forms stars!

How did we come about? How do particles like quarks, electrons, and neutrinos come together and produce consciousness? God. Why are we the only ones aware of our mortality? There are sea creatures and various animals that walk the earth. But they are not as knowledgeable as we are.

And what about entropy? When the universe reaches a low enough state of entropy, everything will start to fall apart! What happens after everything disintegrates? Every structure, human, building, and ALL OF MATTER will eventually die. EVERYTHING dies!

We are taught that once there is nothing left other than some particles forming in the void, there can be a ‘reforming’ of particles. Particles can start to come together again and form a brain in the void. It’s called the Boltzmann brain. As a matter of fact, it is more likely for a single brain to appear in the void than for a new Big Bang to occur.

The definition of a Boltzmann’s brain is a fully formed brain, complete with memories of fully human life in our universe, that arises due to extremely rare random fluctuations out of a state of thermodynamic equilibrium in our universe! You see, consciousness is just particles and forces, and that’s all you need for the ‘lights to turn on.’

I believe this event will represent the return of Christ. And then, somewhere down the line, I’m not sure how long after–heaven will come down to earth! There is a reason the Lord instructs us to pray this way: Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.💕

The End of ‘Time’🌌

We are the only ones in the universe. God didn’t make other life, as far as we know. I mean, there are creatures and sea life, etc. But there is no evidence for alien life, and the Bible makes no mention of it. We have searched and found nothing so far.

It doesn’t surprise me that we are the only ones here: God’s children. We are also the only ones brought to consciousness and aware of our own mortality. The greatest physicists have told us that we are here by chance. At the beginning of what we know as ‘time,’ or ‘the Big Bang’ 13. 8 billion years ago, everything was ordered and designed.

God doesn’t make mistakes, though. We are not here by ‘chance.’ We are here deliberately for a purpose, and each one of us is unique with our own gifts, talents, and even failures and shortcomings.

I don’t know if my mind could ever understand all of physics. I majored in English and minored in History and often wish I would’ve studied science more. It is one of my favorite subjects nowadays. Although I love to write, of course.

I have learned a lot about light, Einstein’s theory of relativity, how light is eternal (Godly). Not only did God create light, but the Bible tells us he is light in many places which I referenced in my previous post.

But back to time. When did it begin? Did it begin with the Big Bang? If God is eternal (which I believe he is), when was the beginning? How far back does he go?

I have understood that if we routinely traveled near the speed of light, we would understand that time slows because we would experience it, and we would understand that space becomes blended into time.

Einstein called it, space time. Everything is happening in ‘space time.’ We are told the past, present, and future are equally as real and almost have no distinction in space time.

Unfortunately, everything will die one day. All matter will disintegrate. Every structure, proton, everything you see (and experience) will one day be no more. I have been studying Brian Greene’s book, ‘Until the End of Time.’ He’s a world-famous physicist.

This is how he explains it: he compares the floors of the Empire State Building to time. Everything from the Big Bang until today takes us to about floor 10, but exponentially far into the future of the building, everything will disintegrate. But there are key things that happen along the way.

With the final floor, at the peak of the Empire State building–the universe is just left with a bath of particles floating through the darkness. All structure will disintegrate. Entropy will win. There will be nothing but particles in the void.

In my next post, I plan to write about the Boltzmann Brain, or the new form of a “Big Bang,” so to speak. So stay tuned for that. It’s never over because God is eternal.

As Brian Green explains it, ‘There will be pockets of order that can reform.’ If you’re interested, I have attached the video that will explain all this more! https://youtu.be/xwYvmlr_wBIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwYvmlr_wBI

Time and Light!✨💫☀️

Did you know that time slows down and becomes very pronounced when approached by the speed of light? The speed of light is faster than anything in the world. Light can circle the earth 7.5 times in one second. At a rate that moves so fast, with such an enormous mass, everything around it starts to slow.

The Bible tells us that God is light in several places. “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5). In another place in the Bible, Jesus says, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness but will have the Light of life.”

“The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end” (Isaiah 60:19-20).

“Light shines on the righteous and joy on the upright in heart,” is also written. Time slows down when the speed of light approaches it because God is light, and he created it. With God, there is no time. He is eternal.

Time is relative. It is not the same ‘for all observers,’ is how physicists put it. It’s why we have different time zones. What ‘time’ is it in your part of the world? Different intervals of time can be different depending upon where you are and how you’re moving.

A million years to God is nothing…

We occupy our space until our ‘time’ is finished. Twenty, thirty, or forty years can come and go in the blink of an eye. What do you want to accomplish here?

Live every day like it’s your last, and take advantage of the ‘time’ you have.

String Theory Explains Everything!🎆🌎🪐

Did you know that scientists have come up with one unified theory to explain EVERYTHING? It’s called string theory, and it proves that everything in the universe is made up of tiny strings (EVERYTHING from the tiniest particle to the most distant star), and they replace the traditional sub-atomic particles like protons, neutrons, corks, and electrons. These strings are vibrating strands of energy! Just like a cello gives rise to musical notes, the vibrations in string theory make up all the constituents of nature.

It is where everything operates in the smallest of scales. God made the universe to be a symphony of vibrating strings.🎵🎶 Everything is in harmony! This theory suggests that there are multiple dimensions and parallel universes as well.🌗🪐 There could be other worlds right next door to us that are invisible.👀 What used to seem like science fiction is not so far-fetched anymore. It is all thanks to this new theory developed in the last twenty years. It’s an area of physics🌠 different from anything we’ve ever known!🌌

We are just one ‘slice’ in a loaf of bread 🍞 and there is no beginning and end. The Big Bang could’ve happened when two of these universes🌙🌚 collided. These tiny strands (strings)🎵🎶 are changing our ideas of everything we know about the universe, especially about the nature of space. And this theory is still in its infancy stages! Long before Einstein, physicists were on this quest for unification. They have resolved it!

Nothing can travel faster than the speed of light💡💫⚡️ (based on Einstein’s proven, theory of relativity). Einstein said that space is not static, it can warp and stretch and that there can even be wormholes (bridges or tunnels, cosmic shortcuts). But to create a wormhole, there has got to be a rip or hole in the fabric of space. Can the fabric of space really rip? According to string theory, it can!

Space can rip. If we could shrink down to a billionth of our normal size, we would enter the world of Quantum mechanics. Everything is chaotic there. Rips and tears in the universe are common. So one may ask, what would cause them from causing a cosmic catastrophe? Well, the strings calm the chaos. As they dance through space, they sweep out a tube, a protective shield with profound implications.

Strings make it possible for space to rip. Space is far more dynamic and changeable then even Einstein knew! One certain thing, string theory is already showing us the universe is a lot stranger than any of us ever imagined. We are surrounded by hidden dimensions. What we think of as our universe is just one small part of something bigger. There are entire worlds🎑 right next door to us!

This is how we know that ‘anything is possible.’ There is no need to be upset about any outcome. What doesn’t’ happen here, will happen in another universe. Everything is possible. This theory suggests that it is strings that we are made up of. Strings are versatile. They vibrate and dance in different patterns creating all of nature. Put them all together and we get a grand symphony called our ‘universe.’🎵🎶☁️ God is creating something beautiful!

Are you aware that you are made from stardust? It’s true.🌟✨💫

Science has been proving it for decades. We are made from the very same elements that stars⭐️ are, these elements are called, CHNOPS, or carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and sulfur. ‘Humans and their galaxy🌌, The Milky Way, have about 97 percent of the same kind of atoms,’ according to Space.com. Both humans and stars are a byproduct of the Big Bang!💥

Did you also know that light⚡️ is everything? Take a look at Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, it teaches us that the speed of light is constant and nothing is faster! God is light, according to the Bible, and he created it! Light can travel around the earth🌏 7.5 times in one second! Space-time🪐 adjusts to light, and we are a part of it.

The closer you get to the speed of light, the more time slows. That is because God is Eternal!☄️ With him there is no time at all. God cannot change. He stays the same. Yesterday. Today. And Forever.

Scientists have even proven that there are multiverses🪐, meaning, the Big Bang💥 has happened more than once. These findings should not challenge your faith, they should strengthen it. We are the only evidence of life. There are at least a hundred billion galaxies🌌, with each galaxy containing at least a hundred billion stars🌟 in it! God is not limited, neither is his grace or vastness.

He created the heavens and earth💨, also. Some Christians like to argue how old the earth is. Based on fact, we know it is millions, actually billions of years old. The universe is 13.8 billion years old. Science and the Book of Genesis correlate.

To reject science is to reject God in a way because he created it! The sun ☀️ is 9.8 billion years old, and humans came last. We could be around a few hundred thousand years old (that is my guess).

God is timeless, it is proven through Einstein’s theory of relativity, again. His ‘clock’ is not like ours. The theory of relativity proves that the speed of light causes it to have such an enormous mass, that time slows until it stops. It is eternity! A million years to you is nothing for God.

There is also this theory of entanglement in Physics. Entanglement means two particles can be separated (and no matter where they are, they can be light⚡️years away), they still imitate one another. The two particles will resemble and even behave the same way. Technically, we are ‘particles,’ according to Physics.

You see, the two particles are entangled. And entanglement makes up so much of the universe🪐. It is all over it. This is why physicists believe we can be here and ‘there’ at the same time. They are not sure where ‘there’ is. But they believe we may have parallel universes🌌.

We are entangled with Christ and are living with him. “Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him (Romans 6:8-9).’

The Bible continues… ‘The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God’ (Romans 6:10). We are made in his image.🙏

God & Science!💥🪐✨

‘Anything that’s allowed by the Laws of Quantum Physics is represented in this menagerie of the universes.’ ~Brian Greene (World-renowned Physicist)

Did you know that Physics has proven it is possible for there to be a second coming of Christ? Today I would like to share a YouTube video by Brian Greene and Sam Harris. I’d imagine you haven’t seen it unless you are really interested in physics, like I am, or unless you are someone in the scientific field. In case you don’t know who Brian Greene is, he’s a physicist, string theorist, professor at Berkeley and a NY Times Best Selling author. Sam Harris is an author, philosopher, neuroscientist and famous podcast host!

Beware, though, if you are sensitive about topics like religion and veganism, you may be slightly offended because they joke around at times! “There is some construal of Quantum Mechanics where Jesus is physically resurrected and it’s not incompatible with physics,” says Sam Harris, the philosopher and famous podcast host. “There is some Quantum ‘spookiness’ that allows for a physical resurrection,” he continues.

Brian Greene responds, “Yes, if we are just many universes out there, and if you wait long enough in a given universe, random particle motion in the universe will coalesce into any physically reliable structure.” It’s called the Boltzmann Brain argument, and it’s named after Ludwig Boltzmann. In this physics-thought-experiment, ‘a Boltzmann brain is a fully formed brain, complete with memories of a full human life in our universe that arise due to extremely rare random fluctuations.’

So you see, AYTHING is possible!!

‘Theoretically, over a period of time, on the order of hundreds of billions of years, by sheer chance atoms in a void could spontaneously come together in such a way as to assemble a functioning human brain.’ Thus, the brain of Jesus!

Ludwig also realized that the universe may have existed effectively for an eternity, and just one weird particle motion at the right moment happened to evolve into everything we know and see now (THE BIG BANG!). His argument was, ‘that if you have an eternity,’ anything can happen. You see, there is NO beginning and NO end. Jesus is eternal, and so are WE!

He will come back again, possibly, through the clouds like the Bible says. And, THE BIG BANG, happened when God said, “Let there be light,”  (see the Book of Genesis 1:3). Start watching this video at 1.36:10 when the student asks them the question about religion if you’d like to see only that part! The entire video is Amazing, though!!

Enjoy! 🌌🌏🪐💫

COVID-19 outbreak, God, and you!😇💙🌏

In a country that is now the epicenter for the Corona Virus, we must be wondering how we got here. Some like to blame others. Either way, the numbers are growing, and when you wake up tomorrow, they will be larger, in a few days, they may even double! It is a scary time to be a citizen. It is a scary time to be on earth!

But here is some real-talk. God never promised us an easy life, or one without trials. He did promise he would never leave or forsake us, with him, we can get through this. We can smile in the midst of pain, we can hold our head up in the hour of uncertainty, we can laugh, again, and we can praise him all the while during these dire moments.

The love of God is the peace that surpasses all understanding. Many believe that if there is a God he would not allow us to suffer; however, suffering must exist. A suffering world does not mean that God doesn’t. It is the nature of human kind since the first sin of Adam that caused even death. However, Jesus is the second Adam, he is the life-giving one!

I suggest you give your life to him. I am not standing in judgement or claiming that I don’t mess up! I am praying to stay on a ‘faith-path,’ and this path of faith does require me to be patient. I am trying to stay on a ‘trusting God path,’ also, because that is all I can do right now. There are some things that are just out of our control.

God does give us free will, though, and the ability to make decisions. He doesn’t always know the outcome, but he does know all the possibilities of what can happen. He is the greatest chess player! He knows all the ways something can turn out. He is praying for us, but does not imposes his will. If he did, he would not be God, after all, because he promised us free will.

He stands and knocks at the door. We have to open it. We have to adhere to him. We have to ask him to lead us and guide us. We have to imagine his presence is there, because it is. This is a culture that teaches us to not use our imagination, and to only depend on our five senses, but if we continue to do so, we are rejecting God. We can ONLY see him through our imagination!

Scientists have even proven, our imagination is not a vehicle we can choose to use while on this planet, it is the vehicle through which we think! What are you imagining right now? Are you imagining love, a bright future, peace for all man-kind? What are you imagining? Are you letting the fear of the world take common place? Imagine a God who loves you so much that he died to redeem your soul!

Whenever, I have tried to depend on my self or on others, I have failed every time. God sits, he waits, he listens. He is a loving father. We can have a direct connection, and what is more beautiful than that? It starts in your intuition. Are my words resonating, yet? If they are, take my advice. No happiness on earth can compare to what the Lord can give you.

No big house, no nice car, no amount of children, nor wealth, nothing can compare to how much God loves you and to what he has prepared. Mansions in heaven! Heaven is a wondrous place that you cannot even fathom. Earth is where moth and rust destroy, and we have pesticides here. But set your mind on things above; not on earthy things, for we are only here for a time.doc with wings

I learned at a young age how man-kind can save your life through wisdom and knowledge. I was in a catastrophic accident that most would never live through, but God saved me through doctors and through medicine. In a culture where we are taught that individualism is important, we need each other now more than ever. I was only sixteen, and those doctors did everything! The odds were against me, but I called out to him in my dark hours.

Things can turn for the better now so long as we listen to our leaders and scientists. God whispers the secrets of the earth within their hearts. We have to respect one another. If we don’t it is not doing us any good right now. I have been in a hospital bed, on a ventilator, unable to eat solid food and fighting for my life. It is the miracle of medicine that healed me, and medicine is a miracle I will never take for granted.

Neither should you. We are all called to this hour. This is about more than politics, this is about more than the left or the right. This is about more than religion. This is about you and God! Make the right decisions!
