Show Me the Glory

“I only believe what I can see and touch, measure and prove empirically!” Really? You’ve just chosen to be much more limited than those who are physically blind. What you can see, touch and measure is only a very narrow slice of the bandwidth of our universe. Even “scientifically”, you are stuck in the stone age… and I double dare you to read on.

Take just the vibrational spectrum of light that we see with our eyes – what we can “see”. The color of light varies with the wavelength of the light reflected by a given object. But anything with a shorter wavelength than past violet is invisible, and anything with a wavelength longer than red is also invisible. Of course we’ve extended our ability to detect and utilize a bit more of the wave spectrum with infra- red and x-ray film, microwave and radio wave technology, and so on, but this is still just scratching the surface of what makes the universe tick.

When I say stone age, what I really mean is the Newtonian age. Newton was a most remarkable man who was responsible for greatly expanding man’s understanding of the mechanics of science, responsible for inventing calculus. Einstein, poster child of post-modern physics, while at the forefront of discovering what is beyond time/space, spent thirty years delving into the unknown, and the last thirty years resisting what he saw.

Quantum physics gives us a peek into a dimension beyond time/space. It is a fascinating study that can help our natural mind glimpse into eternity, beyond cause and effect, beyond the laws that govern objects, movement, temperature, and other matters which operate in the visible-tangible-measurable macrocosm. The implications of what we see in quantum physics are worth the effort. So I’m inviting you to travel along with me on this journey.

I’ll end today with this quote from C.H. Spurgeon, written in 1908! It’s obvious that God was revealing to him thoughts that transcended current scientific knowledge. He was writing about Moses’ request that God show him His glory in Exodus 33:18:

“These eyes are but organs to convey to me the knowledge of material substances; they can not discern spirits; it is not their duty; it is beyond their province. Purer than celestial ether of the most refined nature; subtler than the secret power of electricity; infinitely above the most rarefied forms of matter is the existence we call a spirit. As well might we expect to bind the winds with cords, or smite them with a sword, as to behold spirits with eyes which were only made to see gross solid materialism.”

  1. Wayne, I never noticed the question you asked. Einstein was a revolutionary thinker as a young man. During this time he wrote the most famous papers in all of physics. His theories of special and general relativity broke new ground in the realms of time-space and gravity respectively. But, as he became accepted, and even worshiped, he admits to becoming the establishment: those same people who rejected his thinking in the early 1900’s. So when Plank, Bohr, and others came along with the wild new concepts of quantum physics, Einstein rejected them. He spent 30 years trying to find a mathematical expression that would encompass relativity, quantum physics and even Newtonian physics in one fell swoop. He failed. He couldn’t accept the unpredictability of the quantum world, which he helped discover. The quanta behaves much like the Spirit which blows where it will.

    I LOVE your writings, Franco. They always take me to great places that broaden my thinking and feed my spirit. You are amazing. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your heart.

  3. Oh, how excited I am to read this today! I so needed a reminder that what I see before me is not all there is, that I am eternal with a spirit that can detect all things and Holy Spirit who is leading me into truth about all things! I can’t wait to read more about quantum physics from your POV. You will spur me on to learn more so I can dialog intelligently with you on the topic! Love to you and Ann! ~Angela

    • Thanks so much for being so faithful to read my posts. I will be off for about three weeks as I have a family situation to take care of. Hope your move went well and you’re enjoying the new adventure.

    I love the opening paragraph Franco, it does a great job of pulling the reader in. I only wish I had a broader depth of scientific knowledge. What do you mean by Einstein spent the last 30 yrs. resisting what he saw?
