The Holy Trinity and Quantum Field Theory

Inconsistency implies imperfection. Therefore, if God is perfect and created the natural world there must be some symmetry and similarity between God’s Divine Nature and the laws of physical nature. In other words, if Quantum Field Theory  (QFT) represents how God does things then it must somehow display a Divine patterning principle and order.

Let’s see if physics relates to God’s character. In Quantum Field Theory a process can be described as following three steps:

1) Field of potentials – – – > 2) Force – – – > 3) Kinetic or Actual Event.

The sequence above can further be understood as:

1) Endeavor (potential) – – -> 2) Action Seeking Form – – – > 3) Final Result.

This 3-step process mirrors the 3-step process of the Divine Trinity:

Father – – – > Son – – – > Holy Spirit.

It is beyond the scope of this post to argue whether the Holy Trinity represents THREE Gods or ONE God acting through three distinct operations (see my post entitled “Three God Or One God?”). Whatever your current view, we can at least agree that each “God” represents a different operation or function within a unified plan. I can work with that for the current discussion.

The “Father” represents Infinite endeavor (Divine Love), the “Son” represents Divine Truth (Love made visible to humans on earth), and the “Holy Spirit” represents the actual event of salvation (which proceeds from the unified operation between Love and Truth).

In this triune process, potential “Good” generates a corresponding “form” according to its disposition, which goes on to generate a useful action (goodness).

Love – – – > Truth (form or information) – – – > realized Goodness.

The major difference between the Holy Trinity and QFT is that the former treats “potentials” as purposeful, rather than as a “throw of the dice.” Also, that the faith-based understanding of this sequence is not that of a continuous process, but rather, consists of distinct (discontinuous), top-down causal links.

LOVE is fundamental reality and represents a non-local (pre-space), non-physical field of pure endeavor seeking purposeful forms and useful actions. All dynamical process and coherent structure in the universe is interconnected, interrelated, and interdependent because LOVE is first causal principle of agency in nature.

The essence of Love is to unify. All things in the universe attain relational holism through reciprocal union (which is a derivative or physical analog of Love).

A complete scientific theory of complexity and evolution will be based on Love. I realize that such a theory will startle the human frontal lobes. But both science and theology is ready for a major upheaval. This upheaval is the secret to the mystery behind the Lord’s Second Coming and making all things “anew!”

These are a few of the issues I address in my upcoming book “Proving God” which is the fruit of a six-year effort to unify science and theology.

Any comments?

    “A six-year effort to unify science and theology”? Clearly I must hear from you. Please comment on my “convince me” blog when you get a moment, thanks.

    Dear poppies,

    Thanks for your interest!

    However, the best way to convince you that GOD is real and that LOVE is the ultimate reality is to ask you to read previous posts on this blog. Also, you will not have to wait long before I make my new book “Proving God” available for purchase. My six-year effort to unify science and theology in this 400+page work is not something I can condense into a comment on your blog “when I have a moment.” All knowledge is connected and many, many topics need to be addressed.

    My posts offer a “taste” of what these various topics comprise.

    Spiritually yours,

    I found your Trinity explanation very interesting. It is much like my blog that I post through and that I am trying to get authority to it at Technorati. I hope you will check out my blog as well. Thanks and God bless. Jared

    Dear Jared,

    I am glad you found my take on the Holy Trinity interesting. There is no sense in trying to unify science with religion when you are working with an inadequate theology. The same goes with current scientific theories – which I take issue with.

    I did take a peek at your blog and read a post on string theory. I personally would not put much faith in string theory because it is not background independent. And while I embrace a universe consisting of higher dimensions current explanations of string theory leave out concepts like pre-space, pre-geometry, and the non-physical realm of spirit.

    Quantum physics and relativity theory also need to be reformulated. Relativity theory wrongly views spacetime as a continuum and denies that anything can travel faster than light. Quantum physics does not address first causal principles and it does not offer an explanation of how the determinative property of large scale systems is generated by “chance.”

    My upcoming book “Proving God” will point out the directions that the New Physics needs to explore.

    Spiritually yours,

    Dear Maurice,

    Thank you for the support.

    It will take both good luck and good marketing! I already have sent out “advance reading copies” of my book “Proving God” and getting positive reviews. The book has also been picked up by a major book distributor! It will be available to the public this Spring.

    Spiritually yours,

  6. Dear Ed,

    What a guy you are and what an astral aim you aspire for.

    I greatly admire and enjoy your work. You must certainly be GodGuy.

    God bless.

    Dear Frank,

    I appreciate the compliment – and your giving me the opportunity to resist my worldly proclivities towards self-love! Did you read my blog post entitled “Am I a slug”?

    Spiritually yours,
