Whether there is a God, or there is no God – the exact answer is not given by science. The higher mind is not comprehended by us, we do not see its manifestations in order to prove its existence. However, why then did the great scientists identify God with the Universe? The most striking example of this is Albert Einstein, who categorically denied the label “atheist” and called himself an “agnostic”.
However, many people consider themselves to be atheists, often denying even the very concept of “God” or “Supreme Mind”. There is science, there is the scientific method and analysis, but there is no proof of God. We agree that in this situation, the denial of the divine component is the only true outcome. The logic of atheists is understandable and even correct in some sense.
The Big But…
There is a very big nuance: in trying to explain our world order, excluding the divine influence on it, we have already reached the theories of parallel worlds, which, like God, are unprovable!
What do we end up with today? Unprovable scientifically accepted theories and unprovable divine influence that is not accepted by science. Yes, it’s basically the same thing.
Well, what then is the truth, and where is it? Somewhere nearby, or very far away? And how did science, in an attempt to deny the higher mind, come down to theories that are also unprovable?
Good questions. Let’s figure it out.
How was our universe born? The Big Bang theory explains well the processes that took place immediately after it. But what caused the Big Bang? What is its causal nature? There are no explanations for this.
In an attempt to bring at least some clarity, scientists began to put forward new theories: for example, the “Ekpyrotic scenario” of the birth of the universe, described in the work of Justin Hori in collaboration with Bert Ovrut, Paul Steinhardt and Neil Turok in 2001. The theory explains well the birth of our universe and the big bang itself and is based on the theory of strings, membranes and extra dimensions, that is, on something that cannot be proven today.
God is not known where (outside our universe), and at his will can create new worlds. And branes in the experiential theory are located somewhere (outside our universe), and their vibrations with subsequent collisions generate universes.
What is the difference? Only in one: the “Ekpyrotic scenario” is a scientific theory accepted by the scientific community, and the theory of divine creation is not recognized by science. Although both theories explain the origin of the universe equally well and are equally unprovable.
We will never be able to see, touch and test it anyway.
In our material world, scientists are faced with the effect of the so-called “external observer”, because of which a dilemma arose. Interpreting the laws and consequences of quantum mechanics, the scientific world faced a choice: to introduce the concept of an external observer (God), who observes our universe as an isolated system, or to introduce the theory of parallel worlds, quantum consciousness or other dimensions.
Thousands of scientific experiments have proven that in an isolated quantum mechanical system, the evolution of a material object occurs, that is, there is a change in the shape of the object and its structural integrity (the Schrödinger equations just predict exactly how this process will take place). But, as soon as we begin to physically observe the object, stepping over the barrier of isolation, the object is collected in the previous form, but at a different point of coordinates.
So, any object in an isolated system is in superposition – in all possible states and in all possible places of an isolated system at the same time. This has been experimentally proven and is completely calculated using the wave function equation.
n other words, at the moment the object is observed, its superposition collapses and the object appears in our material world in its previous form, but in a certain place, the probability of which determines the equation of the wave function.
But collapse requires an outside observer, which can be either a person or any device or sensor capable of exchanging energy with an isolated system.
What does it give us? Atoms of matter in an isolated system are always entangled with each other. This is called “quantum entanglement”, which is also experimentally proven.
Whatever is in an isolated system (objects, people, planets, galaxies) – everything gets entangled with each other and is in superposition. And it should be so, because experiments, calculations and experiments show this way. But in the real world, we are in a certain place, interacting with specific particles of matter, getting entangled with them. But at the same time, there is no superposition, and the world, although subjective, is the same for everyone and everywhere.
The fact is that our universe, even expanding, is an isolated system. Therefore, everything that is in it must be in a state of superposition, which reality is not observed. And if this is not the case, then everything collapses under the influence of an external observer (operator).
In other words, there is something outside our universe that is capable of exchanging energy with it.
And here a dilemma appeared before scientists: either to officially recognize an external observer (God), which causes the superposition of our universe to collapse, or to recognize that we are all in a superposition here and now, that is, in all possible states and all possible places of the Universe at the same time.
This is how it should be, according to the laws of quantum mechanics.
They did not introduce God, but left many interpretations of quantum mechanics (multi-world interpretation, Copenhagen interpretation, interpretation of consistent chronologies, in addition to parallel worlds and the multiverse).
It’s funny when Everett’s interpretation (the same “MWI” – many-world interpretation) is seriously recognized as one of the leading ones in modern science, according to which it is proposed to get rid of the collapse of the superposition of the universe by moving from one universe to another.
Yes, “MWI” describes that any of our decisions takes us to a parallel dimension, in each of which the same laws of nature and the same world constants operate.
So what do we choose? Yes, whatever! Proving anything is still impossible.
And if the problem of God is that we cannot scientifically prove it, then, therefore, it is impossible to accept the theory of divine origin in science. But at the same time, the Copenhagen theory is a science, despite the Wigner’s Friend Paradox, which indicates that with the Copenhagen interpretation, objective reality cannot exist – it will all be in superposition.
It’s even worse at MWI. There it is absolutely “to the light bulb” how this jump to another universe is carried out, and with what probability it occurs.
Physicists are so tired of contradictions and disputes that in 2014 a new theory was proposed – “Shut up and calculate”, where parallel universes are described by the equations of classical physics.
Quantum effects arise as a manifestation of the physical influence (energy exchange) of parallel worlds with each other, including ours (therefore, the superposition of our universe collapsed).
How?! Congratulations with the argument leading us to abandon quantum mechanics?
And all because quantum mechanics without God (an external observer) turns into a semblance of faith, and faith in anything. Not even the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
To start a movement, a push is needed. To do this, you need to break the balance in the Absolute. Therefore, it turns out that the Creator’s intervention in the creation of all laws, energies, spaces, living and non-living matter is inevitable. And who he is for you, you can decide for yourself. God, Supermind, Creator, Absolute…
