A quantum God

 

Introduction

Jesus said once:

I still have many things to say to you, but you are not able to bear them now.” ( John 16:12  )

And to the jews he said “and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free ”  (   John 8:32   )

These phrases raised two questions in me:

  1. What were those many things he had to say?
  2. Why couldn’t his audience “bear the many things” he had to say?

1 These “many things” may have not been so important to explain at his time as he would otherwise have talked about these “many things “with his intelligent use of metaphores.

2. Jesus is said to have talked galilean or hebraic aramaic with his disciples. The language could not have been the problem that made it  “unbearable”.  Maybe were the issues he wanted to talk about to difficult to understand at his time, when people did not have the knowledges we have today? Was it about understanding God?

In this article I focus on  the Quantum physics enigmas and the enigma of  Jesus’ miracles and how these miracles could be explained with some knowledge about Quantum Physics. I also look at definitions of God in holy books and how to get closer to a presumingly existing God.

The page has been updated with the issue  Human beings view of God inspired by Morgan Freemans documentary about God.

I also added the issue Omnipresence after listening to Dennis Zettings Youtube video from 2015.

About God in holy books

We find different definitions of God in the Bible.

” God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24  )

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” ( Revelation 1:8  )

In the Quran God is defined as:

Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. (All Quran chapters of the Holy Book start with it except Al-Tawba (Chapter 9).  (Source : www.aljazeerah.info ) 

the Exalted in Might, the Wise ( Al-Naml, 27: 9 ).

iLord of the worlds ( Al-Qassas, 28: 30 ).

The One in the Beginning and in the End” (  urat Al-Ikhlas, Chapter 112, verse 1 )

“the Light of the Heavens and the Earth”

 the Hearing, the Seeing  ( Al-Shoura, 42: 11 ).

full of forgiveness for the people despite their wrongdoing (    13: 6 and 41:43.   )

The Wisest of Judges

He is the swiftest of accountants  (   6: 62  )

give life to the dead, and He is over all things competent. (  Ar-rum 30: 50 and 41: 39. )  

“… did certainly give Moses the Torah and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Pure Spirit”  ( al-Baqarah 2:87 )

 (Source : www.aljazeerah.info ) 

Kyballion

To get an idea of what God is, it is interesting to read the Kybalion that were defined by the Egyptian Hermes trismegistus

 in his 7 hermetic principles 4000 years ago. He was regarded a messenger of God and later, one of the Gods himself (Hermes in Greece and Toth in Egypt)  and a psychopomp.

among others he shared these principles:

Human beings view of and connecting to  God

I decided to add this part after seeing Morgan Freemans docutmentary about God. He looked at views of God in different part of the world to find similarities. he raises for me important questions and try to find answers.

Hindus view of God

“Behind all Gods there is single divine  energy the hindu believer try to get into” a energy that is neither female nor male, it has no name but they call it Brahman. Hinduism looked at superficially  seems to be a religion of many gods. But under the surface there is a single divine energy

Why one God in certain cultures and many in others?

Stonehenge, The first monotheists

Stonehenge was build with a focus on the sun. The old stones at Durrington walls focusing on Beacon hill, where demolished after Stonehenge and rebuilt with a focus on the uprising midsummer sun.

Sun the main focus of worship and religious interest to establish a particular connection to the sun. The people of Stonehenge may hjave been the first people to worship a single God.  When the Gods were ancestors, a river, they were much more accessible. Woreshiping the Son, they missed this accessibility.

worship the dog star, Sirius,

I were informed about another ancient temple.  the world’s oldest temple, #GobekliTepe, in Southern Turkey, may have been built to worship the dog star, Sirius, according to one researcher.

Morgan asks

“How do you speak with a God that is so remote?”

He continued in Egypt

Anjali Kumar  shares about her search of God in a Ted. 

 

 

Atenism– the first monotheistic religion

Faraoh Akhenaton decided 1350 ad to worship the sun 100 years after Stonehenge.

His ideas was considered very dangerous. he thought there were to many Gods. He closed most of the temples. “We must have one important God that only I can channel. (Salima Ikram) There is a special God. The name of that God is Aton. You can worship Aton though me. “

That was not a popular move. All the important Gods priests were silenced. As oon as Akhenaton died the old priesthood struck back. His son Tuthankhamon was only 7 years when Akhenaton died and Tithankamon died when he was 19. The priesthood did their best to erase the memory of Akhenaton.

The Great Hymn to the Aten is the longest of one of a number of hymn-poems written to the sun-disk deity Aten. Composed in the middle of the 14th century BC, it is attributed to the 18th dynasty Pharaoh Akhenaten, who radically changed traditional forms of Egyptian religion by replacing them with Atenism.” (Wiki) 

Jerusalem 

Half the people of the planet can trace their God to the ancient city of Jerusalem. it was in Jerusalem the belief in one single all powerful deity took root 2000 years ago.

How one God won out of many

Yoran Hazony, Jewish philosopher:

“Abrahams father owned a shop with God idols. The pagan Gods of that time represented anything people may need.  There was a God that brings the rain, a god of warfare. Some Gods wanted a party, they wanted wine, song and good food, some Gods wanted bloodshed’s. The Bible tell about Abraham wanting to shed  his son’s life. A voice stopped him telling to never sacrifice  lives again. Jews built a temple over that shedding site to commemorate that event. A temple that the Romans destroyed 70 ad. “

God is a single force that brings physical and moral order.

You could communicate with the God of Abraham without idols or temples. For Jews, Christians and Muslims,   the invisible God is always with them wherever and whenever they  turn to God.

How to connect to a God that has no physical form?

How do you knnow what is divine and what isn’t?

Muslims

Al_Hussein Mosque, Cairo, Ahmed Ragab (islamolog)

The call to prayer,  For the faithful the song  of the Muezzzin is a manifestation of God itself.ed. Morgan Freeman says erroneously  “song ” but it is really a Quran recitation that you listen to in the video.) 

At the end of the prayer one say “Ahsalamu Aleykum”. (e. “Piece with you”, something you say to people)
Morgan : “A prayer to Allah seems to be like a conversation with a person.”

Morgan to the Imam “In Christianity god is so manifest. There is not such thing in Islam. Who am I talking to?”

Al_Hussein Mosque, Cairo, Imam Al-Amir Mahfouz, (Mosque spiritual leader).

“You can not imagine God. God is beyond imagination. Whatever you would imagine , God is beyond that imagination”

Morgan “Mosques are designed to be filled with beautiful sounds and images that delights the senses, from elaborate architectures to verses of the Quran written with the fines calligraphy.

Many muslims sees this beauty as a manifestation of God itself. (ed. morgan says himself as god were a man. I prefer “itself” in Swedish one sould say “hensjälv”, hen that is neither han (him) nor hon (her) ).

Morgan: “Islam sees god in all things that are beautiful. As God as no form it can be experienced with any of the senses. But these experiences are only aspects of the divine. God is always more than we can imagine. 

 

Navajo God

Some faiths believe God can take a visible form. In a Navajo Hogan in Shiprock, where God and a human become one single being. a Navajo God start living in a  girl becoming a woman after a 4 day long kinaalda puberty ceremony, making a giant corn cake in honor of the sun over a fire outside the Hogan” it originates from the woman of change, Asdzaa Nadleehè. they wanted her to have children.

First man and first woman saw a cloud over Gobernador Knob and they hear a baby crying. the holy people instructed them to take care of the baby. In twelve days the baby grew up to a 12 year old girl. She was ready to become a woman. To become a woman the girls must connect to the Spirit of Asdzaa Nadleehè that the Navajo believes lives in the Nature. She must run each day toward tghe uprising sun

Sufi islam

It is a pity Morgan hasn’t explored the Sufi meditative approach. Morgan that compared music with God should have done that.

Neurotheology

“Dr. Andrew Newberg is a neuroscientist who studies the relationship between brain function and various mental states. He is a pioneer in the neurological study of religious and spiritual experiences, a field known as “neurotheology.”

Understanding God through his Creation

Giordano Bruno was trying to understand  God through his Creation.

Giordano Bruno, who understood quite well Copernicus heliocentric model, said about God in his authobiography in page 35 that “the only bridge to understanding the infinity of God is to understand the infinity of the Universe.”

Giordano also said in his authobiography in page 20  that in the tiny bubbles in a cup of cuffy, you can see the reflection of the Universe.

My hypothesis is that we in the tiniest quantum particles can see a reflection of God and Jesus. 

In the Romans 1:20-22 you can read about God that For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made,  even his eternal power and Godship”

In James 4:8 you read that “Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you”

A conclusion of Romans 1:20 and James 4:8 is for me

“Study YHWHs (=Gods) Creation and gifts with the new technology we have today and you draw close to God And hopefully YHWH has time to draw close to you helping me in my searches.

Studying the Creation means today, to try to study what Biology, Chemistry and Physics today understand and know about our world e.g.:

Biology: Darwins theory of evolution, abiogenesis Biological anthropologyQuantum biology

Chemistry: the nucleosynthesis

Physics:  Quantum physics 

I believe there is a God but I can not know.

If there is a God who created Universe and all the Creatures, then this God is able to control and use the unified force we had at the beginning of the Universe development. We do not know what can be done with this force. Of course such a God is able to take advantage of the capacity of the quantum particles he created.

I like this verse of Isaiah 40:26:

“Lift up your eyes to heaven and see. Who has 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 missing 

Now with my new knowledges about Quantum particles, I also think that God must master and be able to control the behaviour of the quantum particles, as God created these.

Understanding God studying Quantum theory

Peter Baksa says: “there is a boundary between science and philosophy, between reality and fantasy. That boundary is Quantum Mechanics. ” and later in the same article: This insistence on discrete energy levels dictates how atoms interact with one another, which forms the chemistry of bulk matter — everything from the stars to ourselves. So it can be seen that the nature of the very littlest of things can have a tremendous impact on everything else, on the nature of our reality. …”

…Hence, for the first time in the history of man, ask and it shall be given is a biblical truism that can be explained using Quantum theory.”

One another article is about A Physicist Talks about God And The Quantum

“Quantum mysticism is growing up as a phenomena. Some scientists call this be pseudoscience or quackery.”

I may be a  quantum mysticist. But I am simply trying to get an idea of the nature of Jesus and God, like Giordano Bruno did.

I try to find a explanation of the mysteries of Jesus miracles with the help of Quantum theory.

To understand my idea of a “Quantum God” it is terefore important you have some basic  knowledge about the

  • Quantum enigmas
  • Jesus miracles

.

The quantum enigmas

The physician   Domin Walliman after talking 5 minutes about the importance and difficulties to explain science, made a good explanation of some of the Quantum enigmas. Look at this Ted ed youtub from minute 5:33ew with 

Before you continue reading me, I recommend to  listen to Dominic as  I am a novice in Quantum physics, 

The single particle double slit experiment changed the way we look at materia.  This youtube video explain it very well.

  1. Particle duality

Photons can be both particles and waves.

Thomas Young demonstrated with this experiment that light is a wave. But today we know that photons that gives us visual impulses in our retina, are particles as well.  

just as Newton predicted in his  book Opticks.

Also big molecules as buckminsterfullerene can behave in the same way. 

2. Quantum entanglement

Electrons have some kind of contact between them that is faster than light.

Bildresultat för electron spinElectrons rotates like planets around their axes. Physicians call this rotation “spin”. Two electrons can be connected to each other through a so called entanglement. If one of the two electrons change its rotation from e.g. clockwise to counterclockwise the entangled electron will “know about this event” this and act accordingly changing its own rotation to clockwise so they are again in superposition, even if it the other electron is on the other side of the Universe or leaving the other with the speed of light.  Also a hydrogen proton can beentangled with its electron at 0 Kelvin.  “A spooky action at a distance” as Einstein called it.  According to Van Raamsdonk:”The Universe would not function in the same way without Quantum entanglement.” (Source:  Van Raamsdonk ). Many biological events (photosynthesis, many enzyme reactions, birds magnetic field sences etc) can not work well without entanglement. I wrote about it in my article about Quantum biology.

Some more enigmatic behaviours are:

3. quantum tunneling – a quantum particle can move through solid objects easily 

Protons quantum tunnel into each other avoiding the rejection forces between these. This happens in the sun where two Hydrogen atoms (with one proton) fuse into Helium atoms (with 2 protons)  and release solar energy. (Source: Dominic Walliman) 

4. A quantum particle can  go back in time and change the past.

5. Quantum superposition

A quantum particle can be in two  places in the same time (quantum superposition is used in photosynthesis)

Subatomic particles can to two opposite things in the same time, like e.g. spinning (rotating) in both direction at the same time. (Source: Dominic Walliman) 
The physician Mark Van Raamsdonk explain this in https://youtu.be/GvRNV6Gmmzk?t=2m47s

Yo may read also this article in http://www.physics.org

To know more you find a lot of good videos in Youtube looking for “Quantum physics”. Another video I looked at is this one from Top5quantum.

Memphisastro explains these quantum enigma. I invite you therefore to look at this video from /www.memphisastro.org

Nils Bohr said once

Bildresultat för if you are not astonished by quantum mechanics then you have not understood it.

or “if you are not astonished by the conclusions of quantum mechanics then you have not understood it.”

Jesus miracles and quantum particle behaviours

Jesus miracles are well documented in the Gospels. And there are many

  • Jesus walked on the water
  • Jesus made bread and wine
  • Jesus knew about what was going on elsewere
  • Jesus cured sick mens
  • Jesus resuscitated dead people
  • Jesus resuscitated himself
  • Jesus entered a house without opening the door

Even the Muslim Quran recognize Jesus as a messenger, Muslims says that Isa (Jesus ) is one of the greatest prophets and the only one who could make miracles. The Quran says:

“We gave ‘Îsa (jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Ruh-ul-Qudus” (ed. english “holy Spirit”) (  Surah 2:87  )

Many people, especcially atheists, think that the stories about the  miracles of Jesus are fairy tales for childrens

but for these atheists the physicians stories bout the quantum particles are not controversial at all.

 

I will  below mention some of Jesus miracles together with the Quantum enigma that may explain it.

 

 

 

3. A quantum particle can become invisible 

Mary: “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” (  John+20 )

After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.

They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky?
“This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come backin the same way you have seen him go into heaven.” ( Acts1:9 ) 

A quantum particle can move through solid objects easily (Quantum tunneling)

:26Jesus entered the house where the apostles where without knocking on and opening the door.

While they (ed. the apostles) were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”

They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds?  Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have…. Do you have anything here to eat?” They gave him a piece of broiled fish,  and he took it and ate it in their presence.” (Luke 24:36-42  )

“Well, eight days later his disciples were again indoors, and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and he stood in their midst and said: “May you have peace.”  Next he said to Thomas: “Put your finger here, and see my hands, and take your hand and stick it into my side, and stop doubting* but believe.”  In answer Thomas said to him: “My Lord and my God!”  Jesus said to him: “Because you have seen me, have you believed? Happy are those who have not seen and yet believe.”  (John 20:27-29 )

A quantum particle can  go back in time and change the past.

People who suffered by Leprosy where previously infected by Mycobacterium_leprae. By curing people with Leprosy it is possible that Jesus went back in time and changed the past.

Leprosy.jpg

11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy<sup class=”footnote” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px;” data-fn=”#fen-NIV-25664b” data-link=”[b]”>[b] met him. They stood at a distance 13 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”

14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.” Luke 17:11-14 )

 

A quantum particle can be entangled with another

Quantum entanglement with Jesus? 

As explained above one particles behaviour <e.g. spin) impact on a entangled particle behaviour (spin in this case) even if the entangled particle is on the other side of the Universe.

here are two examples that according to me are examples of entaglement of God to Jesus

  1. Luke 19:29-31 says:

29 Now it happened that when he was near Bethphage and Bethany, close by the Mount of Olives as it is called, he sent two of the disciples, saying, 30 ‘Go to the village opposite, and as you enter it you will find a tethered colt that no one has ever yet ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, “Why are you untying it?” you are to say this, “The Master needs it.” “

2.  Markus 14:13-15 and  Luke 22,10-23: “share the second example:

Luke 22,10-23 says:

“He said to them, ‘Look, as you go into the city you will meet a man carrying a pitcher of water. Follow him into the house he enters 11 and tell the owner of the house,’ ‘The Master says this to you: ‘Where is the room for me to eat the Passover with my disciples?’ 12 The man will show you a large upper room furnished with couches. Make the preparations there.”

How could Jesus know about the colt and later the man carrying a pitcher? A hypohesis of mine is that  God is omnipresent and God may have been  entangled with jesus. What God saw, Jesus saw by entanglement.  Knowing about quantum physics, Jesus could maybe have said this metaphore: ” God choose who to become entangled with”. but at Jesus time he had to talk with metaphores for fishermen, shepherds and farmers and not for physicians.

.

Gods omnipresence

I see a possibility of omnipresence with entanglement.

With entanglement God can see with the eyes of those trillion species that have useful eyes, from insects to other animail around you.  In  the same way  is God able to hear with the help of all whose animals  and humans around us that have userful ears.

But God can also entange whoever of us  to listen to our brians.

I found Dennis Zettings who tries to explain omnipresence using knowledges about quantum physics .  I like his introducing with psalm 139:7-10 ). I have however yet difficulties to accept  his explanation as a proof of omnipresence.

We emit  light, like infrared light  that mosquitos can see. But I have never heard that our brains neurons by themselves emit some kind of electromagnetic  waves.  if you do not let the brain hydrogen atoms respond to cetain electromagnetic  frequencies MRI scanners  emit.

Even i  our neurons emit some strange electromagnetic waves, it doesnt prove God/Allah “is in us” btu possibly able to “listen to us”. 

The Bible and the Quran say God is all-knowing.  But that could be a reality with entanglement  that is  a Quantum reality.

Dennis uses  a a simple  electromagnetical reality to describe a so called Omnipresence.  I agree with Dennis that electromagnetic waves from our body and brain  could be a way for God to listen to our brain activity and  understand our thoughts.  
I am a little reluctant that he uses the word “Quantum physics” when his ecplanation is based on elementary Physics. Maybe Dennis uses these words  to attract attention and legitimate his conclusions. I see no need for him to do this. His argument about a all knowing God is good enough. I would give this title to his Youtube video “Human electromagnetic fields explain God’s allknowing.”

 …. yes. But the neruons

Quantum computing with qubits

What can God calculate with quantum calculation?

All constants (cEulers eG, hLambda, pi, phi !,  Q, T ) that build up the Universe may have been calculated with this calculation power.

 The constances of life

Einstein’s field equation

{\displaystyle R_{\mu \nu }-\left({\frac {1}{2}}R-\Lambda \right)g_{\mu \nu }={8\pi G \over c^{4}}T_{\mu \nu },}

where {\displaystyle \Lambda =1.11\times 10^{-52}\,{\text{m}}^{-2},}

the cosmological constant is the value of the energy density of the vacuum of space

  • To be on the same frequency

  • Read about string theory and connection between parallell Universes at http://www.thewayofmeditation.com.au
  • This article talks about meditation. But I am thinking about having contact with God as many believers thinks or believe they  have.
  • I believe that  Mary. Jesus and all our near relatives who died may be in some parallell Universe. Another hypothesis of mine is that we may be able to talk with them if we succeed to set ourselves in in right mood/frequency.
  • Some believe it is possible to get in touch with dead people.

Conclusion

Bildresultat för if you are not astonished by quantum mechanics then you have not understood it.

Inspired by  Nils Bohr’s saying about Quantum mechanics, I conclude this article with:

“if you are not astonished by the miracles of Jesus,
then you have not understood God.”
