Sean Carroll interviews Brian Greene on his Mindscape’s podcast!⚛️💫🌌

This is a very good podcast by Sean Carroll. It’s part of his Mindscape podcast #31 where he interviews the famous physicist, Brian Greene. Actually, they are two of the greatest physicists in the world, and the interview takes place right at Colombia University. It answers many questions about String Theory, multiverses, the fact that the universe is still expanding, entropy, and what it all means. The universe has not only been expanding since the Big ‘event,’ as I like to call it, 13.8 billion years ago, but the expansion is also speeding up! What does this mean for our universe? When will entropy have its way? Will there be a ‘rebirth’ once the sun burns out our planet (approximately 5,000,000,000 years from now?) Is it possible that the universe lasts a trillion more years? These are all questions addressed here in this podcast, some of which I’ve discussed before–take a listen I think you’ll enjoy 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!🌌☀️🎑🌈🌗🎇🌙✨💓🎈🌊🐈🕊⚛️

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!🤔

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🙏).❤️⚛️
