Seeking God in Einstein’s Universe: 

Seeking God in Einstein’s Universe Aileen A. O’Donoghue Into the Weirdness

This SOAR Coarse: 

This SOAR Coarse Some of the incredible wonders we’ve discovered about our universe: Scale of things Origins of the elements we’re made of Origin andamp; evolution of the universe Weirdness of matter andamp; energy How I connect these to my sense of God How weird is God? What can we know about God? What do others say about God?

This SOAR Coarse: 

This SOAR Coarse 9/7: Into the Vastness Cosmic scales of space andamp; time 9/14: Into the Weirdness Origin andamp; Evolution of the universe Nature of Light andamp; Matter 9/21: The Substance of Ourselves Origin of elements we andamp; Earth are made of 9/28: The Children of Earth History of Earth andamp; Life

In the Beginning …: 

In the Beginning … At t = 0 seconds Time began Space began Universe began What DO we know? All galaxies are moving away from us More distant galaxies moving away faster Entire universe glows in microwaves

In the Beginning …: 

In the Beginning … What DO we know? All galaxies are moving away from us More distant galaxies moving away faster Radio Raisin Moves at 3 m/s Singing Raisin Moves at 1 m/s California Raisin Cosmology Distances Double in 1 sec Raisins separated by meters

In the Beginning …: 

In the Beginning … Expansion of the Universe All galaxies are moving away from us More distant galaxies moving away faster … The universe is like a raisin bread! Raisins move with dough, not through it. Galaxies move with space, not through it!

In the Beginning …: 

In the Beginning … Current Cosmological Theory Use equations to 'run time backwards' Universe gets smaller, denser, hotter Can go back to 10-43 sec after Big Bang Observations support Theory Early universe is glowing ball of energy seen as Cosmic Microwave Background … So what have we learned?

In The Beginning There Was …: 

In The Beginning There Was … LIGHT At t=10-43 Seconds There Was …

The Expansion of the Universe: 

The Expansion of the Universe After 10-43 seconds Time and Space began expanding The Universe contained Time, Space andamp; Energy The energy was in the form of electromagnetic radiation …light

The Nature of Light: 

The Nature of Light Light is an electromagnetic wave…

Light Acts As A Wave: 

Light Acts As A Wave Light shows interference (addition of waves) and diffraction (bending around corners) like water waves. But that’s not ALL light is …

Light Acts As A Particle: 

Light Acts As A Particle Light pushes dust out of the solar system like a stream of particles.

Wave-Particle Duality: 

Wave-Particle Duality Light is a wave AND a particle! Exists as both natures … until it interacts with matter. Manifests one nature appropriate to the interaction. Becomes a particle hitting comet dust. Becomes a wave passing through a slit. How can it be BOTH at ONCE? We don’t know … but it is!

The Structure of Matter: 

The Structure of Matter Electrons act like particles sweeping e- beam creates TV pictures e- collide with phosphorescent molecules knock molecules into excited state light emitted when molecule falls to lower state

The Structure of Matter: 

Electrons act like waves Quantum Tunneling Energy barrier reflects particles waves penetrate waves exist everywhere … can find position beyond barrier like oranges spontaneously leaving fruit bowl but oranges are too big! … only subatomic particles do this! The Structure of Matter High energy Lower energy

The Structure of Matter: 

Electrons act like waves Quantum Tunneling Energy barrier reflects particles waves penetrate like oranges spontaneously leaving fruit bowl Probability of tunneling increases for lower energy on far side The Structure of Matter

The Structure of Matter: 

The Structure of Matter Flash Memory Storing (No Power) Both sides at same energy low probability of tunneling 67% (2/3) of charge will leak off in 100 years (Prob. of any e- tunneling ~10-23) Writing/Erasing (With Power) increase probability of tunneling 67% (2/3) of charge will leak off in 10-6 seconds (Prob. of any e- tunneling ~10-5)

Wave-Particle Duality: 

Wave-Particle Duality 'The essential marvel of the divine milieu is the ease with which it assembles and harmonizes within itself qualities which appear to us to be contradictory.' Teilhard de Chardin The Divine Milieu

What does this say about God?: 

What does this say about God? What are God’s wave andamp; particle natures? Imminence andamp; Transcendence? Christian personal God andamp; Buddhist 'no God'? Loving andamp; Non-interfering? Can we even know? … or must we rest in unknowing?

The Expansion of the Universe: 

The Expansion of the Universe The universe cooled as it expanded Particles 'condensed' out of the light Light andamp; Matter are the same stuff … E=mc2 Light becomes Particles … Particles become Light All matter is frozen energy!

The Early Universe: 

The Early Universe Universe was a sea of light and particles Protons, neutrons, electrons … Universe was uniformly bright Light coming from reactions everywhere … The universe was opaque After a few hundred thousand years of cooling, atoms began to form …

Atoms: 

Atoms Nucleus of Protons (+) and Neutrons (0) Surrounding cloud of Electrons (-) Electrons’ 'orbits' or 'clouds' determined by their energy

Atoms & Light: 

Atoms andamp; Light Atoms Absorb and Emit Light To change electron energy Light energy = energy change Not all light can interact with every atom

Atoms & Light: 

Atoms andamp; Light Each element emits andamp; absorbs a unique spectrum Balmer Spectrum of Hydrogen Lyman Spectrum of Hydrogen in Ultraviolet    

The First Night: 

The First Night Atoms of Hydrogen (75%) and Helium (25%) Absorbed some light Most light traveled freely without interacting with any matter. Universe became transparent 300,000 years after the Big Bang … …darkness fell for the first time.

The Structure Of Matter: 

The Structure Of Matter Matter at the Subatomic Scale Protons andamp; Neutrons in Nucleus are made of Quarks held together dynamically by the exchange of gluons.

Quarks: Fundamental Constituents of Matter: 

Quarks: Fundamental Constituents of Matter Quarks cannot exist alone Carry 1/3 of an electric charge Decay if alone Exist only in relationship to other quarks to create protons, neutrons, atoms, … all matter All matter, at its most fundamental level, must exist in relationship to exist at all!

Beatrice Bruteau: God’s Ecstasy: 

Beatrice Bruteau: God’s Ecstasy God, the Ground of All Being, must exist in relationship to exist at all. God Exists as 'The One.' Absolute, Infinite, Necessary to all other existence, Exists in every possible way of being … … must also exist as 'The Many.'

God: The Ground of All Being: 

God: The Ground of All Being Beatrice Bruteau 'Being is really Be-ing; it is not really a noun but a verb. ... To-exist is dynamic, not static.' 'Dynamic be-ing means more-being, being more. Endlessly more. Every kind of 'more.' Being must be both one and many.'

God’s Ecstasy: 

God’s Ecstasy Beatrice Bruteau 'The Trinity is both one and many; Being is present there as Persons; the Persons are necessary and infinite; the Persons are both enstatic and ecstatic; and the Persons are Being-communicating' The Universe is God’s Ecstasy

Trinity: 

Trinity Perichoresis = Dancing Developed by 'Eastern Fathers' Didymous the Blind (313-398) Basil the Great (329-379) Gregory of Nazianzus (325-389) 'Whatever is going on in God is a flow that’s like a dance and God is not a dancer, God is the dance, itself.' - Richard Rohr

Perichoresis: Divine Dance: 

Perichoresis: Divine Dance Relationship is the theology of the Trinity God for us – Father: Total Giving God with us – Son invites us into the dance God within us – Holy Spirit allows someone else to love through us – participation in God 'Whatever is happening in God cannot be just an inner, hidden secret. It has to be reflected in the outer universe' - Catherine LaCugna

So what have we learned?: 

So what have we learned?

My Dancing Day: 

My Dancing Day Traditional English Carol (c. 1400-1700) Tomorrow shall be my dancing day, I would my true love would so chance To see the legend of my play, To call my love to dance Sing O my love, O my love, my love, my love, my love, This have I done for my true love. In a manger laid and wrapped I was, so very poor this was my chance. Betwixt an ox and a silly poor ass to call my true love to my dance. Then later on baptized I was. The holy ghost on me did glance. The Father’s voice heard from above, to call my love to dance. Then was I born to a virgin pure. From her I took fleshy substance. Thus was I knit to human nature To call my love to dance.
