Hawking

Found an awesome post on new daily http://www.newsdaily.com/stories/tre6811fn-us-britain-hawking/.
Its about how Professor Stephen Hawking has made a God redundant.

Here is a quote

In “The Grand Design,” co-authored with U.S. physicist Leonard Mlodinow, Hawking says a new series of theories made a creator of the universe redundant, according to the Times newspaper which published extracts on Thursday.

“Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist,” Hawking writes.

Sounds like a good read to me.

  1. In “The Grand Design” Stephen Hawking postulates that the M-theory may be the Holy Grail of physics…the Grand Unified Theory which Einstein had tried to formulate and later abandoned. It expands on quantum mechanics and string theories.

    In my e-book on comparative mysticism is a quote by Albert Einstein: “…most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and most radiant beauty – which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive form – this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center of all religion.”

    Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity is probably the best known scientific equation. I revised it to help better understand the relationship between divine Essence (Spirit), matter (mass/energy: visible/dark) and consciousness (fx raised to its greatest power). Unlike the speed of light, which is a constant, there are no exact measurements for consciousness. In this hypothetical formula, basic consciousness may be of insects, to the second power of animals and to the third power the rational mind of humans. The fourth power is suprarational consciousness of mystics, when they intuit the divine essence in perceived matter. This was a convenient analogy, but there cannot be a divine formula.

    • Hey Ron cheers for your input. I just had a quick read through your book and i enjoyed page 29.
      To be honest i don’t really know what to reply to this with. But its cool how you are trying to revise the equation in a way, i can’t say i understand it how you present it but i appreciate your sharing.
      Thanks for your comment.

  2. Luke,
    Yes, pages 29-30 apply to skeptics. Read pages 60-61 about “A divine formula?” It is difficult to explain that which cannot be explained (mysticism is full of paradoxes).

    • Cheers for your comment once again. I have read the pages you said and while i can see where it makes sense to you it kind of doesn’t to me. But thanks for your help with your book, its an interesting read. But i think where you have put at the end of page 61 about science being only able to obvserve 5% of the universe i believe this to be inaccurate and i believe science will find a way to triumph and find out how to analyze the dark matter and dark energy in the universe.
      Sorry if this may sound like rubbish but i have just woke up and not typing too fantastic.
      Cheers again Ron.

  3. Lukem there are many variations to my joke, but here is a brief one:

    A mystic has been in an unlit room for an hour, his eyes fully adjusted to the darkness. Later, a religious leader enters holding a burning candle and a holy book, followed by a scientist wearing night vision goggles and carrying a measuring device.

    The mystic says to them: “Blow out the candle and take off the goggles.” The other two are incredulous. “Suspend my religious belief?” “Give up my scientific research?” He replied: “Just for a minute.” When they do, the mystic turns on the light.

    “Amazing, I had no idea it would look like this,” exclaims the religious leader. “Oh my, I can measure everything much better now,” declares the scientist. The mystic then turns off the light. The other men shout, “I can’t see anything!” He responds, “Yeah, it happens to me every time. Don’t worry, you’ll get use to it.”
