A Little Quantum Physics

"Quantum physics asserts that the whole is present in every part. And furthermore, that every individual part is a genuine expression of the whole, and yet, no one individual part is the totality of the whole itself. I thought about how the ocean illustrates this truth. I can go to the beach and scoop up ocean water in a Dixie cup. The water in the cup contains the same properties as the entire ocean , and yet obviously , that cup of water is not the entire ocean. In the same way, as spirit or energy, the whole of God is present in every part."

~from "Being Jesus in Nashville", by Jim Palmer

For some years now, this has been my interpretation of God; not the "Sky-God" concept of most of mainline Christianity today. My own "shedding of religion" (Jim's words, not mine) came when I first began to ask questions which I was never bold enough to ask before. Once I began questioning, there was no stopping. Four or five years ago I was introduced to Quantum Physics. It, of course, only added to my questions. But this time, not from a religious pov, but from a scientific pov. Yet, they fit perfectly together in my mind. To me, God is beginning to make sense for the first time in my life. I haven't "arrived". I don't have all the answers. Heck, I probably have less answers than when I started. But, oh my what a trip I am on!


  1. I'm also asking those bold questions. And I am also getting the making sense thing. It is quite a journey...very exciting!
