God created the universe from the same laws that would allow the human race to evolve spiritually

That is what I call cosmic inner consistency—by which all process in the universe (including spiritual evolution) is unified. Scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg championed this notion of the same laws appearing on all scales of existence with his science of correspondences. … Continue reading

The laws of harmony

One of the things that continuously amuses me about the scientific community is how their various theories and models concerning reality ignore the principle of harmony. While scientists might confess that all the phenomena of the great universe allow for … Continue reading

Unifying quantum and relativity theories

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 … Continue reading

Harmony collapses the wave function

One of the biggest mysteries in physics is how the probability distributions in a quantum process collapse into a single outcome of measurement. How does one formal outcome emerge from all the possibilities? And what happens to all those other … Continue reading
