cosmology

From the latest scientific investigations we are finding out what was thought to be “empty space” contains most of our universe’s energy and matter. So outer space is not a vacuum as we thought. Outer space contains matter and energy we can’t see, and both have attributes and qualities.

So, could the dark matter and dark energy be remnants from the Big Bang which never condensed into matter as we know it? The unknown allows us to wonder What’s included in the things which are real but we don’t know anything about yet?

This feeling of wonder keeps us asking What else might be outside of our box of beliefs? I really enjoy the feeling when I notice science keeps on making some of us uncomfortable and others of us more comfortable. For example the statement:

Science doesn’t make it impossible to believe in magic, but it makes it possible not to believe in it.

(This particular blog refers to information in Tim Holt’s book WHY DOES THE WORLD EXIST and paraphrases (in the above italic) Steven Weinberg’s assertions about the belief in the existence of an all-powerful and all-knowing entity.)

I suggest that if there were such a thing as an all-knowing and all-powerful entity, it would be very very bored. There would be no challenges for it, and it could view nothing new.

  1. Some say the journey is as important as the destination. Would an all-knowing and all-powerful entity get bored if being in the moment can cancel the boredom we think would come with knowing all the consequences following the moment? Imagine an all-knowing and all-powerful entity able to experience love in the most deep and wonderful way using its knowledge/resources/power to bring that love into reality and actually experiencing it. Would experiencing the deepest love ever be something others consider boring even if the one experiencing it knew every consequence of being in the deepest love ever? or even if the one experiencing it was the one who brought it into existence by using limitless knowledge/resources/power?

    • Thank you Spencer. I agree love is powerful and feels good. And should. Your point is well taken. I also feel good about seeing a favorite football game from the past, yet seeing it again doesn’t take the better feeling of not knowing what is going to happen with it.

      • Yes, we see this when people like to watch their favorite movie
        more than once. They know the plot points and the ending, and
        they’re not bored when seeing it again. Same with our favorite
        songs, poems, paintings, foods, etc….
