Scientists will admit to being in wonderment and in awe of nature’s beauty and elegance. From the largest to the smallest phenomena in the universe, order, regularity and symmetry is encountered everywhere we look. All this order is self-evidently lawful and systematic.
Not only does this beauty and elegance reflect mathematical constants—nature’s measurements, proportions, ratios and equations represented in its various structures, complexities and processes are profoundly pleasing to the human mind.
Every discovery made by human experience and exploration brings delight to the mind. Physicists find that the mathematical equations that best describe nature are the most beautiful. Many also believe that the mathematics of differentiation hides a potent and beautiful power of unity.
Why should the structure of the universe be pleasing? And why would this beauty be especially recognizable to the human heart and mind? Why is nature using the same mathematical rules that mathematicians find beautiful to formulate?
Does the mathematical elegance of the universe point to something deeper? Or, put another way, does the joy of beauty point to something deeper? Yes! It tells us that truth presents us with goodness. The intelligence of the world is aimed at affecting the passions of the human heart.
This beauty and goodness is a reflection of God’s Infinite Love!
The next great shake-up in science will take place when it is discovered that LOVE is both primal substance and the key to agency in the world. As the first causal principle in the universe, Love always adapts form and structure to its own disposition. In other words, Love’s beauty is the guiding principle behind the harmony, simplicity, and unity of the laws of the universe. Truth represents the mathematics (laws) by which Love comes forth and finds formal existence.
Existence is relationship (nothing can exist alone). For new things to come into existence previous things must coexist. In fact, nature procures its stability and coherence through “relationship-building.”
Nature’s ongoing endeavor to self-organize is a physical analog of Love’s essential striving to unite. Love is living creative force. It is the reason why the laws of the universe are so bio-friendly.
The origin of beauty is the marriage of Love (essence) and Truth (form). Beauty has its origins in a non-temporal and non-spatial realm called heaven.
