What does God think of Einstein and Schrodinger?

ScientistsFor one thing, the Lord God doesn’t care much about their cognitive theories in physics. (General relativity and quantum theory are at odds with each other in a universe that is profoundly unified.)

Worse, God is even less happy about their emotional failures. Einstein admitted that his emotional world was dismal and Schrodinger was having an affair when he came up with his famous equation for quantum mechanics.

What most terrestrial humans do not understand is that the quality of one’s heart (not the quality of one’s thoughts) determines where one’s gravitational trajectory will take them in the spiritual realm (heaven or hell).

Scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg likened a highly developed human intellect to a soaring eagle. But as soon as that eagle descends to earth to capture a fish or small mammal, it reveals its ruling passion and appetite for things existing on “lower” levels of reality.

As far as the intellectual accomplishments of both men are concerned, the angels of heaven, who live in a realm in which the fundamental laws of the universe have their origins, also have many unifying laws to teach and reveal to them.

To be fair, God loves both individuals infinitely and will give them every opportunity to learn new concepts in the spiritual realm beyond this one. But if their egos prevail and they resist angelic help, they will descend from a higher intellectual environment to their actual level of love and cut themselves off from the source of wisdom itself.

In the spiritual world, we only keep the cognitive ideas that best give form to our actual affections and loves. Everything else is discarded—no matter how “high-sounding” it may appear!

    Sounds good!
    What meaning does ‘cognitive’ add when you use it to qualify ‘theories’ and ‘ideas’? I don’t quite see what.

      Dear Ian,

      Perhaps the word “cognitive” is not needed to qualify “theories” or “ideas.” I was just looking to strongly distinguish those who had overdeveloped intellects and underdeveloped hearts. Relativity and quantum mechanics are intellectual formulations invented by men who had poor emotional IQs.

      Spiritually yours,

  2. Are not the scientists the high priests of God’s creation in that they describe the natural world? Maybe the affair helped Schrodinger (devise his theories) or are you saying it was an extramarital affair- and there fore immoral? Guess I am lax on my Schrodinger triva!

    Swedenborg is brilliant and I like it that someone hip (you) is promoting his ideas. Keep up the good work!

      Dear Victoria,

      “Truth” is the form in which goodness, love and genuine morality has its form. Schrodinger could not have discovered a “truth” while cheating on his wife!

      Thanx for following this blog site!

      Spiritually yours,

        So a fact in science is different than truth? I guess this is a new definition of truth than I have ever seen, It seems you define truth as virtue where as truth in science is more factual or logical. But I would rather live in your world moral virtues actually. I am an SAIC grad and I am planning to make your lecture in Chicago Friday.

    Dear Victoria,

    God’s spiritual love is the essential substance and first cause of the universe. All truth represents some form in which love gets structure. Glad you can attend the lecture. You will hear more ideas that you have never heard before!

    Spiritually yours,

    Ed – I just heard an interview on The Philosopher’s Zone (an Australian Broadcasting podcast) of Eric Schwitchgebel on his study of the ethical beliefs and behaviors of ethics professors. He reported that all professors, philosophy professors, and ethics professors all behaved about the same in terms of not eating meat, voting and making charitable contributions. However, the ethics professors opinions on what was good moral behavior were twice as supportive of those virtues. I wonder what God thinks of that? Oh, FYI, his speculation on why this was the case was that since ethicists are so used to arguing on moral issues that they are probably better at rationalizing. Does that suggest that on spiritual matters, “the smarter they are, the hard they fall”?

    • thegodguy says:

      Dear George,

      I cannot comment on the spiritual beliefs of people I don’t even know. However, the human intellect can hold noble ideas without individuals having to connect these same ideas to the growth of their God-given remains. Ideas that are unconnected to one’s remains are removed in the spiritual realm. Swedenborg suggests that the intelligent have a more difficult time with reality (and true wisdom) than the simple. Besides, moral issues can be completely terrestrial. Professors are not immune to the allurements of status, reputation and reward.

      Spiritually yours,

  5. George Gantz says:

    Ah yes, but we could hope otherwise – that the mere contemplation of moral and ethical concerns would lead one to better behavior. Unfortunately, one needs and open heart as well as an open mind in order to receive the influx of wisdom from the Lord ….
