Physicists have a problem on their hands. The two pillars of modern physics—quantum theory and general relativity—make opposite claims. For instance, in quantum theory the deeper you go into nature the more violent things become, yet general relativity shows that things get geometrically smoother on smaller scales.
This incompatibility has led many physicists to suspect that there is an essential flaw in the current understanding of the physical universe and that a new unified theory still eludes them. Multi-dimension string theory and the multi-universe theories are some approaches being offered to solving this conflict.
But this mental journey will also have to include the topic of why we are here.
There is also a growing movement in the world for finding common harmony between people of all faiths and belief systems. Without such unity the human race is doomed to perish.
This noble trend will require discovering a commonality and unity within all knowledge. Not only will the laws of the physical universe need to be unified, but be unified also with moral and theological laws.
This is the challenge I undertook with my award-winning book Proving God. I have been invited to give a talk on this book at the Swedenborgian Library in Chicago this fall (we are in the process of working out the details).
Unity of heart and mind within the human race will be the big trend of the future. Our survival counts on it! I am happy and pleased to be a part of this important world discussion.
