Pioneering theoretical physicists are now contemplating the idea that foundational issues—the laws and forces which produce the physics that rule the universe—have a pre-space and pre-time beginning. This challenge comes from a logical contemplation of the Big Bang theory and the singularity, at its center, from which all things emerged.
The singularity existed before spacetime, therefore it cannot be explained by mere physical rules. But how can physical scientists grasp the idea of dynamical activity when removed and abstracted from its relationship with time and space? Is the creation of the universe actually a non-scientific topic?
Well, theologians have the exact same challenge. In the New Testament (John 1:1-3) it states that before anything was created there was God’s “Word.” Furthermore, everything was created from the Word. This means that even a religious view of creation has its origins in a pre-space, pre-time realm. Will theologians ever gain a pre-space exegesis (pre-space biblical explanation)?
Logic tells us that this Pre-Planck era (an original state where time and space are meaningless) must somehow lawfully produce the manifest universe. Not only does the physical universe emerge from a non-physical realm, there is also a profound correlation between the two!
The modern scientist and theologian are faced with the same ultimate question. Therefore, the ultimate answer to such a fundamental question could very well unify science and theology. Well, it has already been done!
Scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg actually explained how dynamical magnitudes (height, width, length, weight, action) all had their non-physical equivalents in theological quantities and qualities. Unfortunately, these ideas of pre-space order are expressed over dozens of books, and require a lifetime of study.
I teased out many of these important concepts from Swedenborg’s voluminous works and squeezed them into my award-winning book Proving God.
I believe that such ideas will usher in a new science and a new theology for the world. The result will be that the human race will then be able to truly clean up its act!
