Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku claims to have developed a theory that might point to the existence of God.  Michio Kaku is not a quack scientist but is instead a very respected physicist who has gone to great lengths to research, explain and prove the existence of String Theory. String theory is an active research framework in particle physics that attempts to reconcile quantum mechanics and general relativity (into the theory of everything). String theory teaches that the electrons and quarks within an atom are not 0-dimensional objects, but rather 1-dimensional oscillating lines or strings, hence the name. These invisible vibrating strings may be infinitely diverse with variables of inestimable value. This would suggest that other cosmic manipulations could exist beyond the edge of our known Universe. Many theoretical physicists including Stephen Hawking believe String Theory is a step towards the correct fundamental description of nature and the Universe.

One of the problems with philosophically defining God is that the word “God” and been so overused, misused, abused and misinterpreted that the little three letter word carries too much dogma. Let’s forget for a moment that most conventional religions preach that God is in the form of a man. Nothing could be more egocentric than that notion. For our discussions here, lets define God as the Universe: God is a boundless orb, a sphere whose presence is felt by the mind and the senses. God’s infinite sphere has a center that is everywhere and a circumference that is boundless. God is an indescribable celestial consciousness that guides and directs all life and matter in form and non-form. God is the Universe – it is EVERYTHING…

Physicist, Michio Kaku, has taken his work in String Theory even deeper. To come to his more recent conclusions, the physicist made use of what he calls “primitive semi – radius tachyons “.  Tachyons are theoretical particles capable to “unstick ” the Universe matter or vacuum space between matter particles, leaving everything free from the influences of the surrounding universe. Pretty deep stuff…  After conducting the revolutionary tests, Kaku came to the conclusion that we live in a “Matrix”. A cosmic fabric of space and time that by pure definition is everything that exists. You, me, the sub atomic world; The Universe in its totality.

“I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence”, he affirmed. “Believe me, everything that we call chance today won’t make sense anymore.”

“To me it is clear that we exists in a plan which is governed by rules that were created, shaped by a universal intelligence and not by chance.”

Kaku further interjected that God is a mathematician. That the source or energy of God lies in a “Cosmic Music”. The music of Strings as noted in his theories of String Theory. God is the 1-dimensional oscillating strings already theorized.

Basic astrophysics tells us that the Universe is a expanding bundle of vast , pulsing energy. A composition of light, matter and vibration; sub atomic physics and gravity its governing forces. We as humans are connected to this energy. Our flesh and bones born from star dust. Our thoughts, actions and energy are interwoven into this matrix; this fabric that is the Cosmos. When you consider the concept of God you need to include yourself in that equation.  You, I and the Universe – ONE. Toss in a little quantum energy, gravity, light, oscillating strings and intellectual consciousness and you have GOD…

You have a Responsive Universe…

mandala

“Each person’s life is like a mandala – a vast, limitless circle. We stand in the center of our own circle, and everything we see, hear and think forms the mandala of our life…
~ Pema Chodron

This is a great quote from Pema Chodron; one of our great modern teachers of this era. I have written and defined a Mandala as a sphere of energy.  In its simplest form, Mandala means circle. It is an ancient Buddhist symbol of inner and outer space where everything is linked as one from which the Universe and all its energy arise.  We stand in the center of our circle and as we communicate with friends, family, community and society our proverbial sphere of influence tends to overlap much like the Olympic Rings overlap.

Basic subatomic physics now explains in painstaking detail that our thoughts and actions react and change the fabric of the Universe. When we look at matter at its smallest form in the laboratory you now have to include the observer (scientist) as part of the experiment or observation because just the act of observing matter at the subatomic level changes the outcome. This can be applied to the mechanics of God but on a more social level it explains with science how every action and reaction we create does in fact cause a ripple… a dynamism of energy (positive or negative) that effects others and our own destiny. This explains karma, the power of prayer and positive manifestation.

When we stand in the middle of our mandala; our personal circle of energy we will overlap into other peoples energy, thoughts, actions and reactions. Every small thought and action does matter. Like compound interest, positive and negative actions and reactions will add up over time to drive a mood, conversation or something more permanent within our lives and the lives of those we influence.

It’s another reason for acute mindfulness; especially in social situations. We wield more power than we realize. Remember that the next time you get mad or cause negativity in any facet. Not only does negativity effect those around you, it is you (the source) that tends to suffer the most…

egotruenature

Night and day… White and black… Life and death….    …So many polar opposites in life and yet one of the most all encompassing comparisons lies within your mind and mental functions: Ego versus True Nature…

What is the Ego? The Ego is your false-self; forged from societal immersion.  It is true; we were not born with an ego. Through our struggles, triumphs and challenges the ego builds its layers of invisible hard-wired behaviors, many times unknowingly.  The ego thrives on the ideals, beliefs, and laws of society and how we perceive ourselves within this society. These ideals color our perception of the world and of life. Our egos become the governing force from which we base our daily actions. The latter force of empowerment creates a false-self that, if unchecked, will foster negative self-esteem. Further, the ego can build this false confidence; though strong and seemingly indestructible, when the fleeting things that build your ego leave, fail or disappear (like money, friends and self-esteem) the walls the ego once built can come crashing down.

True Nature is the opposite of ego. True Nature is everything left behind when you are egoless. Imagine stripping away negativity, evil, fear, guilt narcissism and jealousy (all ego facilities)– what are you left with? Only love, wisdom and positive energy – the heartbeat of existence. The source and energy of our True Nature is born from the Cosmos. Within the Cosmos, quantum mechanics suggests that the behavior of matter and energy is interconnected and that the effect of the observer on the physical system being observed must be considered part of that system. Further, this connection with humans and the Universe explains why Karma and an afterlife are possible. From a scientific standpoint, this energy is dependable and unwavering. Quantum energy can also be defined as a life source that connects to everything that exists in the Universe: From distant stars and galaxies to microscopic atoms within your body. As proven in quantum mechanics, everything has a quality of interconnected energy associated with it. All of this energy is indestructible as energy cannot be destroyed, it just changes form. From a humanistic standpoint, this energy is positive in nature as it exhibits no fear, anger or negativity – these fore mentioned negative traits are of man’s making (ego). This positive quantum energy can include our thoughts, actions and the basis for our existence. It is the common denominator for everything that exists – the true definition of God. Indestructible!

The ego defines the “material world” we were born into and True Nature defines the alternate Universe that exhibits our “True Reality”; everything pure and unadulterated. True Nature transcends all religion and even this world; again, its energy is constant and indestructible. Knowing this breeds clarity and a responsive quality to our minds.

So which polar opposite are you more aligned with?

There is this sublime world that exists beyond our atmosphere here on Earth.  Occasionally we look out upon its back yard realm at night; gazing up at the neighborhood stars that dot our heavens above. Yet for the most part, people are entrenched with what is going on here on Earth. Rarely do people look up and marvel at the boundless nature of the Cosmos.   The social static of ego, religion and conflict surrounds us and our mindfulness is preoccupied. Yet, people do find happiness and success in this earthly world but still we rarely pay attention to the Universe that surrounds us. There is a grand Universe home to over 200 billion galaxies and then there is this subatomic Universe within – also boundless. The Universe is where our energy was born and when we die it is where energy will return. This concept seems important, yet life goes on here on Earth and we all seem to trudge on facing our daily challenges, never fully aware of our deeper connections.  Humans are generally self-centered – you see it with our politics, globally policies, economy and religion. The focus these days tends to be centered on quantity and not quality. Many people suffer in this world governed by big money and the elite. Is there another way?

There is another world that exists stifled under the controlled chaos we habitually call life.  It is the subatomic world that surrounds us. There is no evil in this world – only energy. The subatomic world is invisible and yet could be the key to everything that exists. Average humans are not interested in things they cannot see. We need tangible evidence and many of us are even swayed by the blind faith of others. Still, there is another world that exists – in fact, we coexist in both worlds. Without the subatomic world, humans would not be – the Universe would not exist. Again, seems important, right?

The Quantum Universe is a peculiar place. When we observe subatomic energy at its smallest levels, the act of observing seems to change the properties of quantum matter. When we observe sub atomic energy at microscopic levels we see particles of matter. Yet when we are not observing this matter, scientific measures show that matter exists in a wave-like form – not particles. How does human consciousness connect, interrelate and alter sub atomic particles? Such manipulations seem to bring scientific plausibility to concepts like prayer, karma and positive and negative manifestations.  Such musings even supports the concept of an afterlife. If the act of observing matter in its smallest form alters matter itself – do humans wield more power than we know? Is this the next evolutionary step? How can a particle be in two places at once? What about the plausibility of mult-universes as detailed by string theory. There is much we do not know and there is much to be discovered. Still, when you stop and appreciate the complexity of the Quantum Universe and the vastness of the Cosmos; and thus acknowledge that humans are a part of this system of order harnessing the ability to alter the fabric of the Subatomic Universe – well, it makes one wonder if anything is possible. Maybe, everything is possible?

That my friend is the definition of a Responsive Universe. Find space in this Universe and clarity will arise from within. From this clarity comes a responsiveness that transcend all dogma and earthly trappings. This is your True Nature. Connect to these sublime qualities and a new world will reveal itself – a grand and beautiful Responsive Universe.

Do we need god?

Talk about throwing caution to the wind! I guess that is a pretty controversial question isn’t it? People have probably been incarcerated, ostracized and even killed for such an outrageous question.  But think about it…  Wars have been fought in the name of god! It is pretty important shit, right?  Here is why I ask… I watched a show last night about black holes… I know; awesome night life right? 🙂

Basically there are two governing forces or laws that describe matter: Einstein’s general theory of relativity and then quantum mechanics. The theory of general relativity explains gravity as it relates to galaxies, stars and planets and quantum mechanics explains the physics of our microscopic world (atoms, molecules and energy). The two worlds are understood and beautifully explained and yet  live in separate but complimentary worlds; That is until we talk about singularity as it relates to the beginning of the Big Bang and the realm beyond the event horizon in black holes. It is then that our theories unravel and we realize we really only understand a small fraction of the workings of the Universe. For better or worse, I have always equated such unknowns as god’s country.  Do you want to understand god? Then you must first understand the Cosmos. Fair assumption right?

Here is a question: If we understood the working mechanics of the Universe would there be a need for God? Ancient religion and the loose concept of god were born from mans need to understand. As we continue to wrestle with age-old concepts of origin, death, afterlife and good verse evil – such musing reinforce the concept of god. Yet, if we understood where we came from and why things happen would the concept of god be necessary? These types of questions are what drive fear in the blind faithful. Without god, world order would collapse? Or would it? It is kind of a loaded question isn’t it? First, I have written many times that god is not something up in the sky and god is definitely not in the form of man (in fact, I do not even capitalized god) – I can’t think of anything more egotistical than comparing god to man or man to god. But, humans are pretty egotistical creatures – hence why the ego is so powerful. Maybe that is why there is also fear, war and this petty need to prove miracles and dogmatic explanations of our world.

Still, I am here to say there is a god or at least a working concept of god. And it is not what most people think god should be. There is probably going to be a lot of disappointed parishioners out there. But there lies the problem with our current understanding of god. The concept of god is worshipped and put on a holy pedestal. People follow and do not lead. Fear and blind faith are taught and people are divided by their short minded views. Is contemporary religion really working? Look at all the famine, war and religious strife in the world. It is all pretty sucky if you ask me. Still, when we think of god as an instinctual energy that surrounds us and is us then the concept of god becomes palatable.  God is everything – it is energy, gravity and quantum mechanics. God is prayer, meditation and karma. God is light and god is also darkness – it is everything. Once people realize this, there is this empowerment to lead and not follow. There is this genuine feeling that we are all connected and each of us has the power to make things better – in essence, the power of God.

Maybe someday, a scientist will unravel the mysteries of singularity. Born from our need to know will come equations that will explain where we came from and where we will go when we die. That pretty much sums up god as it relates to contemporary religion. The historical and religious trappings that surround our gods are really just gratuitous. God is about birth, life and death. Funny, so is the Universe. And when we crack the riddles that hold us hostage, there will still be a place for love, compassion, karma and energy – the true essence of God. Look inward and you will find god.
