## Quantum Mechanicsđ âłď¸âď¸

Did you know that gravity is everything? It not only keeps your feet to the ground, but it keeps planets in their orbits in space. God made gravity. Not that God is gravity, but what God made–gravity, is incredible!!!

Quantum Mechanics gives us probabilities. These probabilities display that God gives us many chances, there are many routes we can take, we can even apply percentages to the likeliness of outcomes. This is all based on Quantum Mechanics. When a doctor gives you a prediction, for example, it’s based on science.

Quantum Engtanglement is a very interesting theory, when two objects interact (even if they widely separate, they have an influence on one another) regardless of the distance between them. One particle can be in Los Angeles and the other at the opposite end of the earth–but they will imitate one another, spin in the same manner, and even behave the same. Einstein used to call it spooky action at a distance!

Newton’s approach to gravity was a little different, says Brian Greene, world famous physicist. It wasn’t wrong but just older. We have now learned through Quantum mechanics that there are many possibilities. NOTHING is predictable. Even when we think we can predict something, we can be wrong. It happens EVERY DAY.

There are numerous possibilities, and in an eternal universe, such as the one we’re in, not only can ANYTHING happen but EVERY rare thing WILL happen!

A particle can be a wave, and a wave can be a particle. Technically, we are considered âparticles.â So we can be “a wave,” as a matter of fact, the entire universe is a wave. EVERYTHING is ENTANGLED.

There is even something called QUANTUM SUPERPOSITION! Not only are we all “entangled,” having a “duplicate,” so to speak. But if you have a physical system that exists in two configurations, IT CAN ALSO EXIST IN QUANTUM SUPER POSITIONS OF THAT CONFIGURATION.

If you have a coin that could be heads or tails, for example. In Quantum Mechanics it can also be in ALL the other positions, PART HEADS, PART TAILS, for example, so, not only is the coin “entangled,” meaning, there are TWO of them, but you can have doubles OF ALL KINDS OF COMBINATIONS. Partly heads, partly tails, etc. BUT WHATEVER YOU FIND FOR THE FIRST ONE YOU WILL ALSO FIND FOR THE SECOND ONE!!!

How do you apply this to your view of God? How does this apply to the Bible? I mean, if everything is entangled, BASICALLY, EVERYTHING that can be known is known! Because GOD is All knowing, he is omni present and can be everywhere at once. There is nothing God does not know, and he is aware of eceryboption that is available. The future is open.

As far as entanglement, the Bible reads, âI have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me (Gal. 2:20).” WE ARE ENTANGLED WITH CHRIST.

## What is time?

God has a way of doing things on his timing, and his timing is better than our own. We don’t trust in God’s timing enough. We often think that our ‘time’ should be his ‘time.’ However, what is time anyway? According to the world’s greatest physicists, the past, present, and future are equally as real, and in space-time, they are happening at once! We don’t have time, we have 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, again, the idea that time passes or that we’re moving through time disappearsâŚ

Think of the arrow of time in this way. It is not built into the fundamental nature of reality, says famous physicist, Sean Carroll. We live in the aftermath of the Big BangâŚor Big Event, as I like to call it. It happened 13.8 billion years ago. Everything you see, hear, feel, taste, and touch is called matter and is a result of it. Our very own bodies are made up of the same elements contained in stardust. The future has already happened, you just don’t know it.

God will make what we want to happen on his radar. As his children, we want to have control and be the captain of our ships. But there is a cosmic order, and we have to work within the Laws of Physics. People tend to think that they can make anything they want happen. Culture teaches if you only believe enough, religion teaches if you only have enough faith, you can have whatever your heart desires. Itâs not true. Some things you want never happen to you. BUT MANY things do!

âIn an eternal universe, such as the one we’re in, every rare thing can happen if you wait long enough,â says the famous philosopher, Sam Harris. But we have to be patient. Miracles happen but not in the way you imagined and sometimes it’s in a way you least expect.â¨

## Godâs Planâ¤ď¸

This is true. âGods plan is worth waiting for,â is what this image says. Sometimes our plans coincide with his. Sometimes we are on different timelines. Meaning, our plans will happen but not when we want them to. What we expect for our lives is not always how it turns out. What you thought your life would be like is not always the life that God wants for you. Donât get me wrongâwe have an unconditionally loving Father who wants to make our dreams come true. But there are the Laws of Physics. We donât always get what we want in life. We have to work within the Laws of the Universe. When we learn to accept this and allow God to lead and guide us through prayer, our intuition, or through other channelsâwe learn to make it in life.âď¸â¤ď¸âđĽâ¨

## Some things you may want to knowđŞ

Do you want to know how there is proof that a Big Bang or ‘Big event’ started everything? Itâ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 â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 earthâs oceans were any closer to the sun, they would evaporate and melt. Godâs work is perfect. He doesnâ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. Iâve read we are just a few hundred thousand years old, but I believe weâre older than that. Some believe the universe may have always been there. I think it was, but God caused the âswellingâ 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.

Newtonâs Laws of Physics helped us figure out that things are âon Earth as they are in heavenâ 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 âlifeâ 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 donâ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, âIf there is other life out there, they are at least 2-3 billion years ahead of us. We are a new planet.â

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 didnâ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 âAstrophysics for People in a Hurry.â It is Dr. Neil deGrasse Tysonâs book.

## 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 is no time, there is entropyđ

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. Itâ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 ânow.â

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.

âBut in terms of the second, over time entropy increases,â 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.

â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,â says Sean Carroll, a world renowned physicist. âIt was very low entropy and orderly in the beginning.â

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!đ¤
