One of the biggest frustrations of blogging is that people tend to think that my sole reason for existence is to give information out freely. I indeed do, to some extent, but I use my short blog posts to create interest in my various books (which treat these topics in more rigorous and detailed ways). As an author (and a marketing professional) I have learned to use my blog for that purpose.
I apologize to any person who feels I do not deserve to make a living!
Recently a student/physicist has told me that he does not have the money to purchase one of my books (i.e., Proving God). This could well be true, but this means he expects a “brain dump” from me—for free! He wants me to explain to him what “pre-space” and “pre-Planck” means.
Since I am trying to cultivate a spiritual and charitable heart, I will offer him (and the rest of my readers) a short definition (although I know this will only generate more “free” questions).
“Pre-space” and “pre-Planck” are terms used to express a situation where time and space become meaningless. I have used these terms to suggest that the laws and forces that rule the universe on the fundamental level operate in a realm of timelessness and nonlocality.
This notion of a causal “pre-geometry” that encompasses everything presents a real problem for contemporary physicists because science rejects metaphysical concepts. But scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg created a model of reality in which physical forces and forms elevated themselves into discrete levels of reality by lawfully removing the constraints put upon their action and parameters. (For instance, Swedenborg describes an unfathomable form in which its center occupies every point of its periphery!)
Swedenborg took his unique model all the way “up” to spiritual phenomena and God’s divine action.
In the last three decades of his life, Swedenborg wrote exclusively about this higher pre-space realm—where we arrive after death and where angels live.
The problem for any scientist in grasping these rarefied ideas is that they have to deal with God’s cherubim—who guard against those who seek these ultimate answers for reputation and worldly gain. These issues can only be approached by those who have sincerely cultivated innocence within their heart.
In other words, this important topic is not simply an intellectual exercise! (I suspect that the academic world would snicker at such a statement.)
But “pre-space” and “pre-Planck” concepts are needed before science can create a rational “unified theory”—which they desperately seek.
