The science of all sciences!

According to scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg, the knowledge of correspondences represents both angelic wisdom and the science of all sciences.

In my new book Proving God I attempt to show why he was correct. In a nutshell, the science of correspondences maintains that all the objects, processes and living creatures in the physical world represent some non-material quality in the invisible world of spirit. This model of top-down self-representation, when fully grasped, can offer academia a profound theory of causal process that emerges out of a pre-geometric and pre-Planck world. Such a framework also serves to lawfully unify science and theology by challenging the current assumptions of both.

Swedenborg’s science of correspondences challenges the notion in quantum physics that fundamental reality consists of irreducible chance. Swedenborg’s view gives real structure to the otherwise un-picturable idea of “quantum froth” which is a carrier of God’s eternal goals and the correspondence principle (self-similarity). This allows a causal link between non-classical and classical descriptions of physics.

The science of correspondences challenges the Big Bang theory as well as Einstein’s contention that spacetime geometry is continuous and that the speed of light is the limiting velocity for the propagation of matter and information. Swedenborg understood that the structure of spacetime was discrete and has provided us with new clues for solving the problem of quantum gravity.

The science of correspondence offers a superior model of a multi-dimensional universe to that of string theory. It allows for a much sought after background-independent description and more perfectly follows the ubiquitous law of parsimony—that all events and processes in the universe unfold along the most efficient path (Principle of Least Action or Occam’s Razor).

The science of correspondences offers a new and theistic approach to evolutionary theory and Intelligent Design (and the role YOU play in God’s cosmic scheme).

And finally, the science of correspondences helps the researcher to identify real laws of physics operating within the top-down scaffolding and architecture of God’s Holy Word!

Sylvia attended the School of Visual Arts in New York and received his Master of Theological Studies at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA and a Certificate of Swedenborgian Studies from the Swedenborgian House of Studies. He is a member of the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (C.T.N.S.) and the Swedenborg Scientific Association (S.S.A.). Award-winning author of "Sermon From the Compost Pile: Seven Steps Toward Creating An Inner Garden" and "Proving God," which fulfills a continuing vision that God’s fingerprints of love can be found everywhere in the manifest universe. His most recent book, "Swedenborg & Gurdjieff: The Missing Links" is an edgy collection of anti-intuitive essays for personal transformation that challenges and inspires. He has been a student of the ideas of both Emanuel Swedenborg and George I. Gurdjieff for over thirty years. Read more about TheGodGuy, his books and his ideas at
