Brown Paint: Quantum Potentialities

 

“When we peer under the foundational plancks1 of the space-time continuum, we find the consciousness that is God.”

What we observe to be the world, our life or our physical reality, is an illusion. As Einstein said, “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” Or as Elon Musk recently said, " ... the reality we think we’re living in may not even be basic reality." And no, he wasn't commenting on Tesla. The implication of this is similar to Einstein's observation whose comment is based on the way our universe is constructed at the quantum level as it manifests itself in our everyday, 4-D “real” world. Our four dimensional physical universe, three dimensions of space, and only one of time, is fundamentally much different than what we perceive it to be.2 [Reality?].

Finding The Elephant, The Blind Man’s Elephant

“So oft in theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has seen!”

The Blind Men And The Elephant, John Godfrey Saxe, 1881

The Risk Of Loving The Truth

Why are you reading this? I know, it's sort of a strange question to ask. But, it is an important one. The answer at some point, however, has to include something to do with curiosity. And a sense of curiosity is nature's original school of education as Smiley Blanton pointed out. When our curiosity is joined by diligence and integrity, it leads us to the truth. Curiosity remains the motivating force in producing the articles that appear here. After all, if Christianity is to be our way of life, and not just a sop, then we should be tenacious, adept and implacable when it comes to pursuing the truth of the word of God so we can apply it in our lives. Otherwise, our energies and actions are nothing more than a religious placebo, chasing the wind on an endless treadmill.
