In the beginning.....................
There was no beginning........................
Our idea that there is a beginning and an end arises from our limited view that our universe was unique and existed alone.. and there was nothing else.
However.. now we are coming to terms with the idea of the existence of the multi-verse.. it becomes clearer that the beginning of our universe was not the beginning of everything.. it is just a PROCESS.. that gets infinitely repeated over and over again.....
Of course.. we have no way of proving it.. but it does seem highly probable that multiple universes have been popping in and out of existence for an eternity. Each universe having its own beginning and its own end.. while being a part of a much wider process.. that has
gone on forever.
This view of things would indicate a relationship between eternity and bundles of beginnings and ends.. that come and go in the eternal framework.
lick here to add text.
According to my reasoning.. based on what some of the greatest thinkers and theories in physics are saying...
What is still missing in physics is a concept of a Primary Field that connects everything together. . meaning..
the entire multi-verse.. IF it exists... can be reduced down to a single field of energy that is infinite and eternal...
This PRIMARY Field serves as a theatre for the multi-verse to exist in.
When a universe pops into existence.. it borrows its energy from the Primary Field...
and then the energy gradually returns back to dormant energy... by means of entropy. . over trillions of years..
Most of the Primary Field consists of energy in a dormant.. (or potential)... state..
In fact... EVERYTHING is ENERGY... Energy is an absolute....
NON EXISTENCE IS A FICTION.. It does not exist)... Energy is either active.. or dormant
... meaning everything is something...
However.. physics cannot detect dormant energy... and therefore labels it - NON EXISTENT. Nevertheless..
it would seem... EVERYTHING that exists is simply an activity in the Primary Field...
INCLUDING OUR OWN CONSCIOUSNESS ...
Physics is the science that detects and describes this activity.
The energy flows like an ocean .. because MOTION is fundamental.. AND FROM THIS FLOW.. WE GET THE ENRGY...
All the fields in physics are diversifications of this single Primary Field...
Material things have a beginning and an end.. but the Primary Field has no beginning and no end...
because it is not subject to space- time.. yet it exists both outside.. and inside.. space-time.......
While.... existence emerges from a state of paradox..... WHAT SEEM TO BE CONTRADICTIONS..
This idea is not new.. it is ancient.... It has historically been represented by religious symbols like - GOD - TAO... ATMAN.. BRAHMAN... etc.
The WHOLE BEING GREATER THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS.....
EVERYTHING that exists can be summed by a concept of a single Primary Field....
TO QUOTE DAVID BOHM
"The ordinary world view is one which we could call - mechanism - in which the world is made of separate entities.. such as particles.. which.. when they are far apart.. they do not greatly effect each other. Then.. they interact strongly when they are close together. Now.. if they do effect each other far apart.. you can always explain it by a field.. such as light.. which would carry the effect through space.
In this case.. we have a connection between these particles that is not carried by any such field.. and which may go over long distances.
Now.. this suggests that the world is not made of separate elements.. but rather.. if you follow it through.. that the world is one whole.. one unbroken whole.. that it is possible to have all these things connected together over very long distances into a whole.. which is not analysable into parts. Both quantum mechanics and relativity suggest that the world is not made of separate elements.. but it is unbroken whole and flowing movement.
The image of that would be flowing water.. If you had vortexes in this water.. each vortex may be thought of as separate.. but in reality they merge together.. there is never any separation. Now.. that is one image.. but this experimental aspect deals with a still more fundamental wholeness.. in the sense that things that are far apart are still related.. deeply.. or may be related deeply.. in a way which is quiet foreign to classical or mechanistic concepts."
I like Bohm's analogy to flowing water.. because I also predict the Primary Field is flowing like water.... or..better still.. an electric current..... and because it has a flowing movement...... we can get energy from its NATURAL MOTION... because motion is........... POTENTIAL ENERGY......
ITS MOTION IS IMAGINARY.... because it is NOT moving relative to anything material.. so paradoxically.. it can also seem not to be moving at all... just like two space craft.. that are along side each other... and moving at the same speed... appear to be static.. if all the stars and planets became undetecable..
If it were static.. we couldn't get energy from it... so the field HAS TO FLOW.... that's logical..
MOTION IS THE NATURAL STATE........ which makes the concept of a FIRST MOVER.............. redundent
THE INFINITIES EVIDENCE
TO QUOTE - "In quantum field theory, the statistical mechanics of fields, and the theory of self-similar geometric structures, renormalization is any of a collection of techniques used to treat infinities arising in calculated quantities."
"The early formulators of QED and other quantum field theories were, as a rule, dissatisfied with this state of affairs. It seemed illegitimate to do something tantamount to subtracting infinities from infinities to get finite answers."
"Freeman Dyson argued that these infinities are of a basic nature and cannot be eliminated by any formal mathematical procedures, such as the renormalization method."
Dirac's criticism was the most persistent. As late as 1975, he was saying:
"Most physicists are very satisfied with the situation. They say: 'Quantum electrodynamics is a good theory and we do not have to worry about it any more.' I must say that I am very dissatisfied with the situation, because this so-called 'good theory' does involve neglecting infinities which appear in its equations, neglecting them in an arbitrary way. This is just not sensible mathematics. Sensible mathematics involves neglecting a quantity when it is small – not neglecting it just because it is infinitely great and you do not want it!"
"Another important critic was Feynman. Despite his crucial role in the development of quantum electrodynamics, he wrote the following in 1985: - "The shell game that we play is technically called 'renormalization'. But no matter how clever the word, it is still what I would call a dippy process! Having to resort to such hocus-pocus has prevented us from proving that the theory of quantum electrodynamics is mathematically self-consistent. It's surprising that the theory still hasn't been proved self-consistent one way or the other by
now; I suspect that renormalization is not mathematically legitimate." ---------- END OF QUOTES
According to my own reasoning.. the infinities are due to the existence of a Primary Field.. that physics will discover when they put the pieces of the puzzle together. The multi-verse.. along with human consciousnerss.. is simply an activity that is occcuring in the Primary Field. The big bang is probably down to Primary Field Collapse.. (as in quantum field theory.. but on a much larger scale.. ).. and the expansion of the universe is the REBOUND EFFECT.. as the energy released IN THE COLLAPSE.... flows back to its ORIGINAL field state.
The end of the universe is when it reaches total entropy and is one with the Primary Field again.. which has no beginning or end..
Instead.. energy is either active or dormant. When it is dormant we call it - NOTHINGNESS.........
Meaning....... EVERYTHING is ENERGY... and this energy is either DORMANT or ACTIVE.
This quote below is Einstein speaking to Schwinger.. (one of the founders of quantum field theory).. about what he saw as a problem of having six quantum fields…. instead of just ONE.......... Primary Field
TO QUOTE EINSTEIN
“This is indeed a beautiful theory, but it seems there are six separate fields – four force fields and two matter fields. As you know, my hope was to find a single field that comprises all forces and matter. This theory of yours does not meet that objective.”
“I can testify that Einstein's speculations revealed here concerning INFINITE spaces in motion do at least carry us in the right direction, in how they suggest space might have an unseen and possibly INFINITE content. Most noteworthy, similar ideas came from the work of David Bohm, who introduced the idea of an implicate order. Implicate order for Bohm was a way of acknowledging that quantum mechanics reveals that space contains a HIDDEN ORDER. However, that order is much more visible than Bohm ever realized. There is the order of groups and grouping that we are accustomed to acknowledging, but there also is an order of balance and symmetry which smoothes out the pronounced nature of grouping, until in extreme, the symmetry of balance seems to be a NOTHINGNESS.” – Gevin Giorbran ---------------- END OF QUOTE
"The Casimir force is widely cited as evidence that underlying the universe there must be a sea of real zero-point energy. This argument follows from Casimir's analysis and prediction."
"If man thinks of the totality as constituted of independent fragments, then that is how his mind will tend to operate, but if he can include everything coherently and harmoniously in an overall whole that is undivided, unbroken, and without a border then his mind will tend to move in a similar way, and from this will flow an orderly action within the whole."
-- David Bohm quote from - Wholeness and the Implicate Order
An invisible wholeness unites the objects in the universe.......
"Nick Herbert, a physicist who heads the C-Life Institute, suggests that we have merely discovered an elemental oneness of the world. This oneness cannot be diminished by spatial separation. An invisible wholeness unites the objects that are given birth in the universe, and it is this wholeness that we have stumbled into through modern experimental methods. Herbert alludes to the words of the poet Charles Williams: "Separation without separateness, reality without rift."
"The interrelation of human consciousness and the observed world is obvious in Bell's Theorem. Human consciousness and the physical world cannot be regarded as distinct, separate entities. What we call physical reality, the external world, is shaped - to some extent - by human thought. The lesson is clear; we cannot separate our own existence from that of the world outside. We are intimately associated, not only with the earth we inhabit, but with the farthest reaches of the cosmos."
NOTE: A conventiional field in physics... could be defined as "a property of space"..... but.. according to my reasoning...... space-time could also be properties... of the Primary Field.....
In reverse order of classical physics.. where mass produces fields.... it seems logical.... that the Primary Field produces mass.. and space time.. intitially.. it seems likely.. by means of field collapse.. followed by a rebound effect.. as the universe expands..... This rebound effect (LIKE A SPRING RECOILING).. could be what we identify as DARK ENERGY.... Of course.. this is only philosophical speculation.. because it is so difficult to prove.
I imagine... each new universe is like a point of force.. being drawn out of (or borrowed from)... the Primarty Field.. and then.. this point of force.. is gradually drawn back into the Primary Field by means of entropy...
Maybe.. as the dormant energy is drawn back in to the Primary Field.... it causes a reaction... to produce new field collapases.. so that new universes arise as old ones die. Basically.. it could be a never-ending processs.... that keeps repeating.. for an eternity............
As Heinz Pagels, a theoretical physicist explains: This unthinkable void converts itself into the plenum of existence - a necessary consequence of physical laws. Where are these laws written into that void? What "tells" the void that it is pregnant with a possible universe? It would seem that even the void is subject to law, A LOGIC THAT EXISTS PRIOR TO SPACE AND TIME.”
”Mind and intelligence are woven into the fabric of our universe in a way that altogether surpasses our understanding.” Freeman Dyson
"Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another." -- Leibniz
"We are a part of Nature as a whole whose order we follow." -- Spinoza
“The notion of a separate organism is clearly an abstraction, as is also its boundary. Underlying all this is unbroken wholeness even though our civilization has developed in such a way as to strongly emphasize the separation into parts.” -- David Bohm, The Undivided Universe: An Ontological Interpretation of Quantum Theory
“We have reversed the usual classical notion that the independent elementary parts of the world are the fundamental reality, and that the various systems are merely particular contingent forms and arrangements of these parts. Rather, we say that inseparable quantum interconnectedness of the whole universe is the fundamental reality, and that relatively independent behaving parts are merely particular and contingent forms within this whole.”
“Indeed, the attempt to live according to the notion that the fragments are really separate is, in essence, what has led to the growing series of extremely urgent crises that is confronting us today.”
“Space is not empty. It is full, a plenum as opposed to a vacuum, and is the ground for the existence of everything, including ourselves. The universe is not separate from this cosmic
sea of energy.”
"Individuality is only possible if it unfolds from wholeness."
“Ultimately, all moments are really one, therefore now is an eternity.”
Quotes by David Bohm
EVIDENCE FOR A PRIMARY FIELD.. IN BOTH PHYSICS.... AND MYSTICISM
Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds - Part 1 - Akasha
“If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, until he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern.” - William Blake
EXAMPLES OF TAOISM... AND BUDDHISM... SPEAKING OF THE PRIMARY FIELD
Lao Tzu Father of Taoism
“Something mysteriously formed.. born before heaven and earth.
in the silence and the void.. standing alone and unchanging..
ever present and in motion.
Perhaps it is the mother of ten thousand things.
I do not know its name.
Call it Tao.
For lack of a better word.. I call it great.
Being great.. it flows. it flows far away.
Having gone far.. it returns.
Therefore.. `Tao is great; heaven is great;
Earth follows heaven.
Heaven follows the Tao.
Tao follows what is natural.”
"This unity alone in the world is boundless in its reality, and being boundless
is yet one.... Though in small things, yet it is in great.... Though in great things, yet it is in small.
Pervading all things, present in every minutest hair, and yet including the infinite worlds in its embrace; enthroned in the minutest particle of dust, and yet turning the Great Wheel of the Law; opposed to all sensible phenomena; it is one with Divine Knowledge.
And... Thomas Aquinas said....
"We know some things have causes. But there cannot be an infinite regress of cause and effect so there must be a Cause which is itself uncaused - a source of all being - "and this is what we call God."
QUOTES FROM - NOTHING: The Physics of Emptiness
We would like to know if the universe is being accelerated by this vacuum energy or by something else.. which is not quiet vacuum energy but almost like it.
“This was speculative and philosophical but it has now become a part of observational science”
“What was once only philosophy or theology or speculation.. has entered a harder environment where we can test it”
