Last night (Oct. 15) I happened to be listening to the radio program Coast to Coast AM with host George Noory. One of the guest speakers was Naturopathic physician Dr. Richard Bartlett. Barllett had personally experienced a miraculous healing event in 1997 and was promoting his new book The Physics of Miracles: Tapping into the Field of Consciousness Potential, which was based on his further research.
One of the most interesting claims made by Dr. Bartlett in his interview was that “Jesus was a physicist.” In other words, miracles are not the suspension of scientific law but the tapping into laws of higher-dimensional physics (something that Jesus would know about). Since I have made a similar claim in my own book Proving God: Swedenborg’s Remarkable Quest For The Quantum Fingerprints Of Love I was delighted to hear his interview. I applaud the boldness of Dr. Bartlett’s theory.
There is a growing movement consisting of theologians, scientists and other academics to unify science and theology. I am a part of this movement and belong to two organizations that have embraced this goal as their corporate purpose (Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences and the Swedenborg Scientific Association).
It is currently believed by many physicists that nature’s laws governing the universe on the fundamental level operate with greater freedom. In other words, on the causal level of first principles, processes operate under less constraint. Some physicists even believe that these higher dimensions are psychical and consist of a universal (morphic) field of consciousness.
My new book takes this idea further. The causal force (first principle) operating and directing this universal field of consciousness is God’s Divine Love. Viewing LOVE as the primal “stuff” of reality and creative force in nature requires abandoning the current materialist philosophy of science that there is nothing beyond the physical nor is anything purposeful.
But such a challenging topic as unifying all knowledge requires serious thinkers to question their current assumptions about both science and theological dogma. Both sides of the argument will have their ox gored!
For instance, not only did Jesus understand and make use of these higher-level laws, they are actually woven into the very fabric and scaffolding of the Bible’s top-down architecture (the Holy Word is a multi-level document containing the secrets to universal order and causal processes). I demonstrate this in my own book.
I will order Bartlett’s book (I hope you do, too). I will be curious to find out what his understanding of higher dimensional physics is, and, if it leads to the non-local and non-temporal kingdom of heaven. Because the greatest miracle of all is not healing the corporeal body of disease, it is obtaining eternal life and happiness.
My book Proving God will be available March 2010. In the meantime, if you want to snoop around, checkout http://provinggod.com
