    I just googled him and his quotes suck. He has nothing insightful to say and only wants money and popularity.

    Funny guy though. I guess scientology is like a cheap mix of science and religion which is sort of what this thread is about.

    Thanks for the suggestion though.

    The great electric forces at work within the world of the very large are also at work within the world of the very small, at the subatomic level. At the sub-atomic level, nothing is certain, not even existence. According to the theory of the very tiny, in empty space, there are pairs of subatomic particles that emerge out of the void, exist for a tiny moment, and then destroy each other. In these pairs, one particle has positive mass, and one particle has negative mass. They are like night and day, opposites that would not exist without each other. What would happen if this pair of particles bumped up against a black hole? The positive particle would escape the black hole, and the negative particle would fall into the black hole. Black holes, rather than being black, are constantly emitting radiation. They continually compress in size in proportion to the absorbed matter until the black hole explodes. Black holes are the engines that rip up the cosmos, and create new stars and jets of energy and matter. The theory of the very tiny can be applied to the entire universe and explain the big bang. To revolutionize our understanding, we need to bring quantum mechanics into the heart of the black hole. If we want to know what happened when the universe began, we have to have a theory that can describe gravity on a very small scale.

    Is the universe arbitrary, or is there a grand design? Do we still need a God? We must understand gravity as it effects individual particles. If gravity had been any stronger, the universe as we know it could never have existed. Space would have been pulled back in on itself, obliterating any possibility for planets and stars to form. There are 4 forces in nature, and gravity seems to be strangely weaker than the other 3. We see for fundamental forces of the today, those being gravity, which holds the Earth, the sun, and the solar system together, the electromagnetic force, which lights up our cities, the internet, and laser beams, and also the 2 nuclear forces. If we want to know what happened when the universe began, we have to have a theory that can describe gravity on a very small scale.

    Super-symmetry is based on the notion that before the big bang, when the universe was just a single point, everything including gravity was merged, with perfect symmetry into one almighty super-force. When the universe began, the super-force was entirely symmetrical. It was made of the same stuff and it all behaved in the same way. But then as it expanded, this symmetry started to break. In the milliseconds after the big bang, forces flew off in all directions, and the universe became messy and uneven. Gravity and all the other parts of nature we see today are irregular, imperfect descendants of the original symmetry. All the particles and forces of nature are actually vibrating little string like objects, and it seems to magically solve the problem of gravity.

    In string theory, the entire universe, including space, time, and even gravity are made up of tiny, string like objects that only appear to us to be different particles because of the different ways they vibrate. The theory suggests that our world is just a giant mesh of vibrating strings. String theory brings the theories of the very small and the very large together beautifully. Einstein’s theory of relativity describes a universe where space bends and curls, just like pieces of string. Quantum mechanics says particles are wavy and fuzzy, a concept well-expressed by vibrating strings. The reason gravity is so weak is because the universe is made up of 11 dimensions. We have discovered many of the laws that govern the universe, but we do not yet understand how they all fit together, or why they seem to be finely adjusted to allow life. We cannot see the extra dimensions of the universe because they are outside our 3-dimensional universe. We could be a bit like fish in a tank, unaware of the world outside, unaware of the extra dimensions. There are perhaps as many as 11 dimensions in a multiverse or universe. Our universe looks infinite in 3 dimensions, but in hyperspace perhaps it is just a pond. But extra dimensions do not have to be bigger than our 3-dimensional universe. Some could be tiny. They could be curled up so small we do not notice them, and that may explain why gravity is so very weak. We may not have seen those extra dimensions because they are too small for us to measure. Physicists now believe that the tiniest, immeasurably small points in space, may actually conceal curved up extra dimensions, and that would affect how we perceive gravity. If string theory is correct, then gravity is as strong as all the other forces in our universe, but just feels weak because it is fighting its way through extra dimensions. Soon we may have to humbly accept that our 3-dimensional universe is just one of many multidimensional worlds.

    The universe is governed by 2 kinds of laws, laws of evolution, which determines how the universe develops in time, given its state at one time, and boundary conditions, which determine the initial state. So far, almost all scientific effort has been devoted to finding laws of evolution, but Stephen Hawking proposes the no-boundary condition as the only reasonable initial condition for the universe. Within the 11 dimensions of string theory, our universe is just one of many 3-dimensional blobs. In string theory, it is possible that there may be existing entirely separate giant sheets of space. String theorists call them membranes, or branes for short, and suggest that our 3-dimensional universe can form on them. Membranes may clash out there in the greater universe. Each of these branes corresponds to a different universe. These branes may occasionally collide. The big bang may have originated as a collision of branes. I am confinident we will resolve these mysteries, and I think the years ahead will be a golden age of discovery. This is the epic quest for the Holy Grail, finding the mind of God.

    God is a substance of infinite attributes, each expressing an eternal and infinite essence, necessarily existing. Besides God, nothing can be conceived into creation. Throughout nature, there is but one substance, God, absolutely infinite. All thoughts and extensions stemming from this inscrutable source are attributes and affections of God. Everything that is, is in God. All things must be conceived into creation from the essence of the divine nature. All things take place by the laws alone of the infinite nature of God, following necessarily from his essence. All things eternal and infinite are worthy of the divine nature. Following necessarily from the divine nature, infinite things are conceived in infinite ways. All things conceivable by the infinite intellect must follow, manifesting into creation. God is the cause of all things which fall under his infinite intellect, God being the first cause of all things. God acts from the laws of his own nature, being determined into action by the internal power of his own will rather than by external stimuli. The power of God is his essence, from which it follows that God is the cause of himself and of all things, each being an expression of his essence. All things in God’s power must exist. Nothing exists from whose nature an effect does not follow. The idea of God, from which infinite numbers of things follow in infinite ways, can only be one. How is the human mind related to the divine?

    The human mind is the idea of a thing existing, the human mind being part of the infinite intellect of God. The object of the idea constituting the human mind is a body. Man is composes of mind and body, existing in accordance with perception. All bodies are either in a state of motion or rest. All bodies move, sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly. What are the laws by which this electric and elastic spirit operates? The highest good and virtue of the mind is the knowledge of God, and also to know God.

    It is allowed by all that the supreme God exists necessarily, and by the same necessity he exists always and everywhere. Whence also he is all similar, all eye, all ear, all arm, all power to perceive, to understand, and to act, but in a manner not at all human, in a manner not at all corporeal, in a manner utterly unknown to us. As a blind man has no idea of colors, so have we no idea of the manner by which the all-wise God perceives and understands all things. This most beautiful system, the universe, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful being. Although this one system, the universe, may have been conceived by the will of a creator, we have no idea how the very fabric of the existence itself began, more still to discover the architecture of the infinite Omniverse.

    The Omniverse is the conceptual ensemble of all possible universes, with all possible laws of physics. In this physical cosmology context, the limitation of the definition “universe” that it has only one set of “physical laws and constants that govern them” is extended to include multiple sets of physical laws and constants, each expressed as a wholly or partially separate universe. The term is used in quantum mechanics to differentiate the concept of a limited number of universes from all existent universes. Within the hierarchy of the Omniverse, there is the Universe, the Multiverse, the Metaverse, the Xenoverse, and the Omniverse. The Universe is the inside description of a context that is relative in size/structure (attributes/modes) to the known universe that we inhabit. A universe, also known as a Cosmos, is a particular individual space-time organization with a specific number of dimensions of space and time and definite and specific laws of physics. Other universes may have different numbers of dimensions of space and time and different laws of physics and constants than our own universe. The Multiverse is the part of the infinity that directly joins a given universe with all possible configurations of that universe. The Metaverse in string theory, the part that is along with, after, over also denoting change in the multiverse that houses the branes or film that each universe is said to be attached to and hang like individual sheets in a hyper-magnetic wave with rhythms of hyper-cosmic strings going up and down that has a third element causing up, down, backwards, forwards, motions inside the Xenoverse. The Xenoverse is the unknown alien elements that are beyond and part of the Metaverse and Multiverse structure, compared to a patchwork quilt hanging on a line to dry in space that is multivariate inside the Omniverse. While the Omniverse is said to be the outside ring of all that is known, the Xenoverse is the inside of the hyper-microcosm that is unknown beyond the Metaverse, the unknown sets of laws that govern how branes behave to create Multiverses. The Omniverse is all possible attributes and modes are in play, multiverses are categorized by the attributes/modes active in its child universes. Some or all possible modes of existence are actualized. If we take the point of origin as our being as a point in measurement, then we can generate the following hierarchy: 1. Our location inspace and time, 2. This Universe, 3. The Multiverse, 4. The Metaverse, 5. The Xenoverse, 6. The Omniverse. We could see the Omniverse as a tree structure: the Omniverse is the trunk, each multiverse is a branch, and each universe is a leaf. Alternatively, the Omniverse can be illustrated as the Amazonian rainforest, a multiverse is a tree in this rainforest, a universe is a branch on this tree, and all further branches and leaves are further subset horizons within this universe. In some views, the number of Omniverse subsets possible is finite. Given that the Omniverse is the largest set conceptualized by man such a view is sometimes called “the end of infinity”. From this frame of reference, it is possible that even if each Multiverse had completely different laws of physics, and the amount of possibilities went off in the most unlikely of sirections, there would be a limit and an end to the amount of possibilities.
