Physics takes a back seat to mathematics when it comes to understanding the intricacies of a non-random universe. Granted that physics deal with the sub-atomic and atomic structures on its own; however it is mathematics that explains how those structures formulate.
Is there a physical reality outside of human existence? Absolutely, but only in mathematical terms, however/whenever/wherever our minds may interpret those mathematical formulations abstractly. The ultimate reality is that the universe isn’t just described by math but that reality is math, in the sense that we are all parts of an almost infinite mathematical object.
The universe as a mathematical object. Interesting. The theory is, the universe started with a bang, a BIG one. According to naturalists, it did not necessarily have an intelligence behind it. My question is, how could a process that led to an unbelievably huge mathematical construct not have intelligence behind it? Mathematics is the language of the universe, and what is language but the insightful expression of intent and purpose, thus intelligence.
My interview about the book during the NY Book Exposition of America at the AuthorCentrix booth.
The assignation that you are one lucky, or unlucky, bastard comes from the assailable notion that you, to the extent that other operative forces allow you no time and space for action, or inaction, do not have complete control over your life. In turn, this notion proceeds from the idea that Einstein himself once propounded when he said (paraphrasing): God does not play dice with the universe.
I will agree with what he is proposing if he applies it solely to the function of the known and (yet) unknown physical forces that rule the wider universe. I believe that one can not truly apply this “divine intervention theory” even in its strictest form to the human mind. Free will as it exist purposely in the realm of human interaction, can only be free, if the human brain that assuage its manifestation is not subjected to structural and functional anomalies that can wreak havoc on how it ultimately expresses free will.
We all know where light comes from but where it goes could only be anyone’s guess. The path it travels is what’s so perplexing because as wavy as its particles, they could be affected by all sorts of hindrances from transluscent crystals andother lenses to transparent fluids, and to solid rocks. That ripples of light get bent by gravity can only mean that light disperses as easily as the divine grace that only comes from one source…. the transcendent creative mind. The resulting rays of light that shower us with great affection is what makes life consistently bearable.
