On Quantum Spirituality: How Are Quantum Physics And God Related?

Is there a relation between quantum physics and god?Ever since What The Bleep Do We Know?! was released, it seems that there has been a resurgence of quantum spirituality in the West.

And for good reason, there are many fascinating links between Quantum physics, neurobiology, cellular biology and spirituality.

But how is Quantum physics and God related?

Well, it’s a strange thing, but I finally sorted this out for myself.

Here’s how I connected the dots.

1) Quantum physics is that of the small, going to the smallest level of fundamental particles.

And actually String Theory now proposes that there are even smaller fundamental units called “strings” (which aren’t particles) that everything in the universe is made of, even the space between matter or visible forms of energy/radiation.

This is the fundamental String field is where everything exists, including you and me, and also since we are made of it, WE ARE IT.

2) In Eastern religious view of God, God is everything.  God is within/without.

God pervades all there is, so in effect because you are made of the same stuff as God, you literally “are God” (of course on a much smaller level than all that is God/everything).

3) Since god is everything, and the Quantum (or String) field is everything, God is the Quantum field.

This is what many scientists and philosophers have been working on since the advent of Quantum physics, using Western science to prove what the Easterners have already figured out.  Amazing stuff.

There are hot debates that have gone on between scientists who believe consciousness precedes existence like Amit Goswami, Fred Alan Wolf (Eastern perspective merging science with experiential “data”), and more materialist perspectives like those of David Albert (Western, hard science only).

I tend to agree with the former scientists, because of my personal experience in this strange universe in which we live.

Materialists would of course say that consciousness is a function of reality, not that it precedes it.  It’s an interesting debate to consider and I appreciate the skepticism of the materialist perspective, even though I don’t fully agree with it.

I will say this, though I’ve never really been in agreement with the monotheistic, more materialistic/external God perspectives of Christian/Judiasm/Islam – I did have an experience when I was a child, where a Sunday School teacher, seemed to get it.

I went to Sunday School class because I had a sleep over at a friend’s house (my parents and family are not religious).

The next day at Sunday school class, the teacher was talking about God and that God is everywhere.  I distinctly remember her asking me what God is then, and I looked and pointed at a hill nearby and said “God is in that hill.”

She said, “yes that’s right.”

It seems that even in these types of religions, people that go to a deeper level find the same things as the Eastern tradition.

quantum spirituality - is it real?It took quite a bit of reading and sorting through all this information, along with experiencing deeper levels of existence through various forms of meditation.

For me to discover that “God is the Quantum field” using exercises in exploring the depths of consciousness and pure awareness.

Bottom line of what I’ve experienced and processed through my personal research and the research and experience of those like Goswami and Wolf is:

YOU ARE THE FIELD, YOU ARE GOD.  God is a metaphor for all there is.

What do you think?

What explorations have you done (if any) in seeking experiences like this?

    Fascinating post, David, and one well worth reading. I just came across it by accident and was glad I did. It IS interesting that quantum science is certainly giving solid evidence to what the Eastern philosophers and spiritual leaders have known intuitively for centuries, and which carried over to the native American tribes, who, of course, migrated from Asia. Even if you read some of the Christian mystics, you’ll see some hint of this realization, but it’s sad that these thoughts and ideas have not pervaded traditional Judeo/Christian teachings.

    • David Hamilton says:

      Glad you came across the article, indeed! Over and over again, I get hit in the head how far behind Judeo-Christian teachings are in this area, though with more modern and progressive forms, they are finally catching up. Joseph Campbell said it best when he talked about the historical/literal interpretation that tends to happen in the J-C religions vs. the metaphorical use in Eastern traditions. Thanks for your thoughts and hope to see you here again soon.

  2. I would like to know has anyone read the Bible old and new testament. Quantum physics is explain in the first chapters of the Bible/Torah. Look past the the surface meaning and read from what little we know about quantum physics. God created, before He created He would have had a plan. “And God said “Let there be light: and there was. And God saw the light, that it was good;” Genisis 1:3 etc etc
    Genesis 11 The Tower of Babel (Babylon = Iraq) The people decided to built a city and a tower whose top may reach to heaven. They spoke one language, planned and invented bricks and slime for morter. They started to achieve this plan and God said “Behold the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to let us go down and there confound their language the they may not understand one anothers speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad….” Genesis 11:6

    Then there is Abram and Sarai, God told them to look at the stars, then the sand to see how many children they would have and then changed their names to Abraham and Sarah ( meaning father and mother of many nations) genesis 12 at aged 100 yo and Sarah 90 yo when their son Isaac was born. It took more than 13 year for them to be able to believe, but with constant reminding looking at the stars and sands they couldn’t help but come to believe and when they did Sarah conceived. This is quantum physics the other religions know what they know because of Gods teachings pasted down through generations.

    More proof look at Genesis 31 Isaac’s son Jacob was treated unfairly by his father in law, he made a deal with Laban that he would have all the speckled and ringstruck animals as payment for all the years he worked. v37 And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the haxel and chesnut tree; and pilled white strakes in them, and made them white appear which was in the rods. v38 And he set the rods which he had pilled before the flocks in the gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks cam to drink, that they should conceive when they came to drink 39 And the flock conceived before the rods and brought forth cattle ringstraked, speckled and spotted.” This is quantum physics.

    I could go on. Please check your facts before making incorrect assumptions and showing your ignorance. Before making statements read the Torah or Bible they are full of quantum physics. God created QP. He says to ‘see’ not with natural eyes but with spiritual eyes. Read the Bible with natural eyes you will ‘see’ nothing. Look deeper open your mind to the scary truth God is the creator of heaven and earth, that includes you. He watched you knitted together in your mothers womb, knows your name, how many hairs are on your head and he knows your thoughts. I hope you get it for sakes and for your families. You are on the edge looking in and missing the truth by following eastern religions, they a copy and a counterfeit . Just remember God loves you no matter what you think you know and believe.

    • David Hamilton says:

      Karen – I don’t see how any of what you’ve said has anything to do with facts. It’s all your interpretation, just like I’m interpreting. That’s why this is a blog, not a scientific paper. I know of little fact in the Bible, how accurate could a book be about Jesus when it was written 100-300 years after he died, which means much of the information was passed down by word of mouth? We have a hard enough time in modern times when there is digital storage, and still tons of interpretation happens. That doesn’t make any sense. Your argument has zero base.

  3. God and Soul in Quantum Theory. / by Socratus /
    =.
    Can the conception of God and Soul have Physical Background?
    My answer is: “Yes, God and Soul have physical background
    and can be explained by physical formulas, equations and laws.”
    I will try to prove my position.
    =.
    Question: what is God?
    The Religious answer:
    God is something Absolute, Infinite, Eternal, Spiritual,
    the Highest form of Consciousness, Who created everything
    in the Universe.
    The Physical answer ( in my opinion) is more concrete:
    There is an Absolute, Infinite, Eternal Reference Frame and IT is
    Vacuum in the condition of Absolute Zero: T=0K,
    that take the functions of God and create everything in the Universe.
    Zero Vacuum T=0K is a “solo fabric” of creation everything in the Universe.
    Zero Vacuum T=0K is a Metaphysical / Spirit World.
    How can I prove my opinion?
    1. God does not create this Material World directly Himself.
    2. To create Material World and everything in It, God uses Spiritual Particles.
    3. The modern name of these Spiritual Particles is Quantum of Light.
    Quantum of Light is most phenomenal particle in the World.
    Quantum of Light is the structural essence of the Material World.
    The essence of all material objects is Quantum of Light.
    Through the behavior of Quantum of Light we can understand
    what an Absolute God has the Highest form of Consciousness.
    ==========..
    a)
    In the Vacuum Quantum of Light has maximal speed : c=1
    (from our earthly- gravity point of view).
    No material particles can ever attain this velocity. It means that this
    constant characteristic brings quantum of light to the world which
    is different from Material World and this is Vacuum World of Spirits.
    b)
    Many kinds of so-called different particles (waves) are only different
    manifestation / modifications of Quantum of Light.
    How can I prove this opinion?
    It seems that different particles create different waves:
    EM-waves, Gamma-Radiation waves, Röntgen-Radiation waves,
    Light-Waves, Ultraviolet -waves, Super/Ultra-High-TV-waves,
    Short/Mid/Long wave- length Radio Emission waves . . . but . .
    . . . but the energy of each of them is written by formula: E=h*f.
    It means that the difference between all these particles / radiations
    depends only on frequencies and the background of these modifications
    is one and the same particle: Quantum of Light in different frequencies.
    c)
    Question:
    Why the simple quantum particle electron has six ( 6 ) formulas:
    +E=Mc^2 and -E=Mc^2 ,
    E=h*f and e^2=ah*c,
    E=-me^4/2h*^2= -13,6eV and E= ∞ ?
    My answer:
    Because an electron and quantum of light / photon and antielectron
    are one and the same particle in different actions and conditions and
    ” The Law of conservation and transformation of energy/ mass ”
    unites them together.
    d)
    The Quantum of Light is not static / firm particle.
    Quantum of Light is an elastic particle and can change its geometrical form.
    e)
    Through so-called “vacuum fluctuation / transformation” Quantum of Light
    can materialize or dematerialize its body ( virtual particle can become real
    and vice verse) using its own inner impulse h or h*=h/2pi.
    (Newtonian physics explains movement as a result of outside influence,
    Quantum physics explains movement as a result of own inner power / impulse
    of particle and therefore Quantum physics is only a modern Aristotle’s metaphysics)
    f)
    1.
    The potential state of Quantum of Light in the Zero Vacuum is: E=Mc^2.
    2.
    In the straight constant movement its speed is c=1 and its energy is: E=hc
    Quantum of Light behaves like a “particle”.
    3.
    In the rotation around its axis Quantum of Light behaves like “wave” with energy: E=h*f.
    In the Zero Vacuum nobody has influence on
    behavior of Quantum of Light. Quantum of Light by himself decided
    in which state He wants to be, it means that Quantum of Light has some
    kind of consciousness. The consciousness of Quantum of Light can evolve.
    Quantum of Light takes part in creation atom, cell, flower, . . . etc . . . and
    in creation every living being. And Its evolution of consciousness is going
    step by step (from atom, cell, flower . . . to a living being ) according to ancient
    Vedas conception: ‘ from vague wish up to a clear thought ’
    g)
    Now . . . . . if . . . .
    If Quantum of Light have some kind of consciousness which can evolve and
    the Absolute Zero T=0K gave the birth to this conscious Spiritual Particles . . . .
    then . . . . then it means that the T=0K by Itself has an Absolute the Highest
    form of Consciousness.
    =====================…
    P.S.
    The tendency to understand “God” by physical laws, formulas,
    equations using the Quantum Theory never will be ended.

    In 1954 Einstein wrote:
    ” All these fifty years of conscious brooding have brought me
    no nearer to the answer to the question, ‘What are light quanta?’
    Nowadays every Tom, Dick and Harry thinks he knows it,
    but he is mistaken.’‘
    #
    In 1987 Feynman wrote:
    ‘ It is important to realize that in physics today,
    we have no knowledge of what energy is.
    We do not have a picture that energy comes in little
    blobs of a definite amount. ‘
    ================ . . .
    My concussions:
    We don’t accepted Absolute Reference Frame T=0K and therefore
    we don’t know what Quantum of Light and Electron are and therefore
    every speculation is possible. I say:
    1) God is simple: T=0K
    2) Soul is simple: Quantum of Light
    ( c/d=pi, R/N=k, E/M=c^2, h=0, c=0, i^2=-1, h=E/t, h=kb,
    h=1, c=1. h*=h/2pi, c>1, E=h*f , e^2=ach* , e^i(pi)= -1)
    3) Everything else (material) is complex.
    ========================….
    #
    ” If we were looking for something that we could conceive
    of as God within the universe of the new physics, this ground
    state, coherent quantum vacuum might be a good place to start.”
    / Book ‘The quantum self ’ page 208, by Danah Zohar. /
    =============== . . .
    Best wishes.
