Are heaven’s angels in agreement with quantum physics?

Yes and no. Terrestrial scientists are not even in agreement as to what is really going on in the quantum world. That is why several different models have been developed over the last 80 years to express different interpretations.

While scientists do agree that the quantum micro-world represents a strange realm where primal entities exist in a non-local state of potentials (superposition), they are unsure whether this state is something strangely physical or completely non-material. Adding to this difficulty, scientists cannot grasp how the indeterminate and schizophrenic world of quantum froth (wave/particle duality) gives birth to the determinate properties of larger scale systems (like solar systems and galaxies). What is the causal connection between these opposing situations?

Simply throwing up one’s hands and chalking up everything to irreducible chance means there is no rational reason for why the universe is structured so rationally and orderly. Which is awkward since science believes it has reasoning on its side (rather than faith and religion). Furthermore, if scientists cling to the notion that the universe appeared out of nothing (ex nihilo) then creation could not have had a physical cause!

If the laws of physics ruling the universe on the fundamental level of reality, emerge out of a non-material, pre-space and pre-geometric realm beyond time and space, then you open a door for God to enter into the equation.

So if angels actually exist they would live in a non-local realm and would know which approach to quantum physics was most correct. Angels would have first-hand experience in observing creation and causal process from non-material first principles.

For assistance in helping us understand angelic perception, I believe that scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg offers us the most complete and rational approach. He claimed that angels perceive dynamics, process and action totally removed from their involvement with time and space. While most scientists who cling to materialistic philosophies see action devoid of time or space as impossible, Swedenborg offered an abundance of rational approaches to this problem. By the way, eminent physicist John Wheeler theorized that spacetime might have arisen out of a pre-geometric realm.

Swedenborg would have described Wheeler’s pre-geometry and the Spiritual World as one and the same thing. This means that he would have identified pre-geometry as spiritual forms resulting from spiritual forces and activity. To form a picture of this non-material realm we merely need to focus on our own thoughts. We can be standing at a bus stop in winter but our mind may be on a Caribbean beach. Our thoughts have real trajectories, directionality, and targets. Mental activity is non-physical and not constrained by physical laws. More intriguing, thoughts can be arranged into real order and coherent structure, giving rise to human understanding and belief-systems (worldviews). This non-physical structure and order is oriented towards our life-choices and values.

To sum all this up, Swedenborg claimed that complexity (including bio-structure) emerged from non-material complexity in a non-spatial and non-temporal realm. An Infinite Creator, like God in heaven, certainly fits the bill for representing a non-physical source of irreducible complexity. Nature’s incessant drive for self-organization comes from a creative, unifying force from the non-physical realm of heaven. This force, or first principle in the universe is LOVE!

Everyone can agree that the essence of Love is to unite. Love unites people as well as creates the non-physical structure of our worldviews from the values we choose. What we love, we value. Similarly, all order and orientation in the physical universe comes from Love’s non-material endeavor to unite things into coherent structure.

Love in heaven corresponds to harmonic principles in the physical universe.

So, physicists will be challenged in the future to see that within their idea of quantum foam lay deeper worlds of order and process—including non-physical process. Physicist David Bohm had similar ideas of a hierarchical or layered design of reality.

This is just a small taste of the issues I will be tackling in my upcoming book Proving God. It will be available mid-March.

    “non- material” and “non-physical” but very substance-tial that force of Love! And very formative and timely that “pre-structure” and “pre-geometric” force of Wisdom! I like your post.

    Dear Carla,

    Thank you for your positive response! God and science are one! The world of human thought is about to experience a grand paradigm shift.

    Spiritually yours,

      Dear GodGuy i,m am writing to you in the hope of enlightenment?you sound as if you are fairly clued in on your chosen field of study i am just asking you a question in informative fashion as i know not much of what you study?!as we approach 2012 do you believe that our reality is conciously shifting to a state of higher awareness and if so what/who is responsible for holding a neutral frequency! as surely it would take something with material matter to anchor this and if so would it dual with a divine origin for it to be arranged by the holy father or is it purely of scientific form? a way as to persay to allow nature to naturally circulate?as i say i,m solely interested in metaphysics but am looking to dealth into divine origins so plz let me know what your profesional prognosis would be please give me a professionl opinion and if you want a seperate personal one!thank-you joseph yours professionally!Do you think an angel from the realm/heaven of breah thats governed by metetron the realm of human concious awareness could be anchoring its angelic substance to a material donor/human to hold the filering frequency,s?!

    Dear Joseph,

    In general, human reality is consciously shifting to a state of higher (spiritual) awareness. This shift in consciousness will be more dramatic in individuals prepared to evolve beyond their biological selves. Such individuals (as anchors) will resonate best with divine frequencies.


    The year 2012 just takes us further along this process. The drive belt for this evolution of consciousness are the world’s growing problems (due to flawed leadership and worldly vales) and a new dispensation of knowledge from the Lord God in heaven.

    My upcoming book “Proving God” goes into these important topics in the detail that you are probably seeking.

    True scientific forms have their origins in spiritual forms – from top-down causality. One is the non-physical equivalent of the other. If you have more specific questions feel free to ask.

    Spiritually yours,

    Hello Godguy …some people who are in contact with angels agreed very much with what you wrote ..they even extended an invitation to help you establish contact with the angelic realm if you wish …let me add by saying that the Great Sufi Ibn Arabi has left a heritage that teaches humans how to communicate with the angelic realm .

  5. thegodguy says:

    Dear Madji,

    While angels are constantly striving to bend my thoughts and heart towards God I am not yet spiritually evolved enough to deserve to have direct contact with the heavenly realm. I appreciate your unique offer and am fond of Sufism. Let us keep in touch for now!

    Spiritually yours,
