I like this verse of Isaiah 40:26:
“Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.”
By looking at the beauty on this planet and its Universe, it is not strange that many worshipped the Creation instead of the Creator. But like a painting is a fingerprint of the painter, so the Creation is a fingerprint of the Creator. By studying a painting you approach the painter. So
- by studying the Universe with its Nebula, stars, planetary system, its physical laws, and evolution
- by studying this Planet, its ecosystem, biosphere and natural laws and evolution,
- by studying the Human being, its psychology, and cultural evolution,
- by studying the quantum world and its quantum laws,
you may get an idea about the Creator.
Einstein had a great almost religious admiration of the Creation with his own idea about a God, that was a Spinoza God.
In this page, I call God as the Mosaic YHWH as I want to stay neutral between those who call the creator God, Allah, Jahwe, Jehova or anything else.
- The name of God in this text
- What is YHWH?
- The Building Blocks of the Universe are the body of YHWH
- Quantum physics – the image of YHWH
- Zoroastrians view of the body of YHWH
- mankind- an image of YHWH
- Trying to describe the body of YHWH with one equation
- There are remarkable similarities
- The Tao of Physics
- YHWH created Adam as an image of itself
- The name of God in this text
- There are many words for God. Muslim say Allah
- Christians say God, Gud, Gott,
- Zoroastrians say Ahura Mazda.
- Jews say Adonai,
- Jehovah’s witnesses say Jehovah.
I chose to use the tetragrammaton in the Latin transliteration from. it is a transliteration of the modern Hebrew יהוה (to be read from right to left and spelled as “yod”, “he”, “waw”, “he”,)). Moses got probably the paleo-Hebrew version of the tetragrammaton.
In my opinion, the name YHWH with its story and its interpretations, adds to the mistery and greatness of the Creator. A lot of information has been collected on Wiki .
I want to emphasize that I am not a witness of Jehovah. I read them and respect their knowledge and efforts to find the truth. As said before elsewhere, I am a pluralist and have my own image of God and I follow Jesus’ advice first of all.
the body of YHWH and Pantheism
At the Catholic mass 3028 January 14, 1 Corinthians 6 was read: “15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself ?… Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; “ (Source: https://www.biblegateway.com )
At every mass Mathew 26,26-29: 26 is read:
“While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat, this is my body“. (Source: https://www.biblegateway.com
I have been thinking a lot about this “this is my body” If the bread is body of YHWH,
- may the whole Universe be the body of YHW as the Zoroastrians believe?
- Is the Pantheistic view the correct one?
This is like asking “Who is Michelangelo?”
For me, this gives a tiny image of Michelangelo and his thoughts.
In a analogous approach, for me
David Tong, Professor of Theoretical Physics, call these The real building blocks of the Universe”

This is a rather cryptic view. But you get a better image if you look at Quantum physics that is law in this particle world.
Quantum physics – the image of YHWH
Electron pairs are entangled and communicate with each other in a mysterious way.
As YHWH created the electrons . may YHWH entangle to an electron in this Universe? E.g. the electrons in an animal eye or ears around you? or in your brain generated inner voice?
An electron can follow several paths in once and make jumps from one position to another.
YHWH can be anywhere.
Electron can step back in time and take new paths.
YHWH can make your time step back to cure you.
Heisenberg uncertainty principle
You never know exactly where a Quantum particle may appear.
You never know where God is listening or seeing. There is only a probability you find a particle in certain positions e.g. for a electron around a nucleus, so with YHWH.
We all are built up with quantum fields: the electron and the quark fields among others. In Genesis 1:27 we read: “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them” This verse led me to the hypothesis that YHWH is maybe describable as matter and force fields, fields we can not see but perceive. I come back to this issue later in this article.
the body of YHWH described with one equation
“I got the touch with the fact of Universe when I understood what math is” Eddie Woo“
“This is equation correctly predicts the result of every single experiment we have ever done in Science” :
(Image source: David Tong, Professor of Theoretical Physics, Fellow of Trinity College lecture in “Quantum Fields: The Real Building Blocks of the Universe”
Th equaion is also describe at www.preposterousuniverse.com
You find t-shirt on internet with maxwells equations explained by novicemathandscience:
“God created both the invisible and invisible worlds from Himself” (Source: http://www.hinduwebsite.com )
- Invisible but perceivable
Compare how we perceive magnetism, gravitational and electric fields
and think about how we perceive YHWH .
We can not see these fields nor can we see YHWH but we or at least some thinks that they can perceive YHWH .
2 difficult to understand or explain
Like David Tong said in the lecture above: “There is awful lot we haven´t understood of this equation (the theory of everything)
In the same way there is an awful lot we do not understood about YHWH.
I am back thinking about this book from Fritjof Capra how scientists find answers studying religious views.
Like Scientists are looking closer to sacred books, so maybe believers should study the Creation of YHWH to better understand YHWH. Read more about this in http://www.kinberg.net/science-without-religion/
I talked about this subject above memtioning Genesis 1:27. Studying psychology maybe helps us understand YHWH better too?
The verse of Isaiah 40:26 raises several questions.
“Lift up your eyes to heaven and see. created these things? It is the One who brings out their army by number; He calls them all by name. Because of his vast dynamic energy and his awe-inspiring power, Not one of them is missing6“Lift up your eyes to heaven and see. Who has created these things?
