Into the Weirdness

This SOAR Coarse

Some of the incredible wonders weve discovered about our universe: Scale of things Origins of the elements were made of Origin & evolution of the universe Weirdness of matter & 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?

4 In the Beginning

In the Beginning

At t = 0 seconds Time began Space began Universe began

What Started It?

We Don't Know!

What DO we know? All galaxies are moving away from us More distant galaxies moving away faster Entire universe glows in microwaves

5 In the Beginning

In the Beginning

What DO we know? All galaxies are moving away from us More distant galaxies moving away faster

California Raisin Cosmology

Raisins separated by meters

Distances Double in 1 sec

Singing Raisin Moves at 1 m/s

Radio Raisin Moves at 3 m/s

6 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!

7 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?

8 LIGHT

LIGHT

In The Beginning There Was

At t=10-43 Seconds There Was

9 The Expansion of the Universe

The Expansion of the Universe

After 10-43 seconds Time and Space began expanding The Universe contained Time, Space & Energy

The energy was in the form of electromagnetic radiation light

10 The Nature of Light

The Nature of Light

Light is an electromagnetic wave

11 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 thats not ALL light is

12 Light Acts As A Particle

Light Acts As A Particle

Light pushes dust out of the solar system like a stream of particles.

13 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 dont know but it is!

14 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

15 The Structure of Matter

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!

High energy

Lower energy

16 The Structure of Matter

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

17 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)

18 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

19 What does this say about God

What does this say about God

What are Gods wave & particle natures? Imminence & Transcendence? Christian personal God & Buddhist no God? Loving & Non-interfering? Can we even know? or must we rest in unknowing?

20 E=mc2

E=mc2

The Expansion of the Universe

All matter is frozen energy!

The universe cooled as it expanded Particles condensed out of the light Light & Matter are the same stuff

Particles become Light

Light becomes Particles

21 The Early Universe

The Early Universe

After a few hundred thousand years of cooling, atoms began to form

Universe was a sea of light and particles Protons, neutrons, electrons Universe was uniformly bright Light coming from reactions everywhere The universe was opaque

22 Atoms

Atoms

Nucleus of Protons (+) and Neutrons (0) Surrounding cloud of Electrons (-)

Electrons orbits or clouds determined by their energy

23 Atoms & Light

Atoms & Light

Atoms Absorb and Emit Light To change electron energy Light energy = energy change

Not all light can interact with every atom

24 Atoms & Light

Atoms & Light

Each element emits & absorbs a unique spectrum

Balmer Spectrum of Hydrogen

?

?

?

?

Lyman Spectrum of Hydrogen in Ultraviolet

25 The First Night

The First Night

300,000 years after the Big Bang

darkness fell for the first time.

Atoms of Hydrogen (75%) and Helium (25%) Absorbed some light Most light traveled freely without interacting with any matter. Universe became transparent

26 The Structure Of Matter

The Structure Of Matter

Matter at the Subatomic Scale

Protons & Neutrons in Nucleus are made of Quarks held together dynamically by the exchange of gluons.

27 Quarks: Fundamental Constituents of Matter

Quarks: Fundamental Constituents of Matter

All matter, at its most fundamental level, must exist in relationship to exist at all!

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

28 Beatrice Bruteau: Gods Ecstasy

Beatrice Bruteau: Gods 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.

29 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.

30 Gods Ecstasy

Gods Ecstasy

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 Gods Ecstasy

Beatrice Bruteau

31 Trinity

Trinity

Whatever is going on in God is a flow thats like a dance and God is not a dancer, God is the dance, itself. - Richard Rohr

Perichoresis = Dancing Developed by Eastern Fathers Didymous the Blind (313-398) Basil the Great (329-379) Gregory of Nazianzus (325-389)

32 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

33 The universe dances

The universe dances

God is the dance.

So dance!

So what have we learned?

34 My Dancing Day

My Dancing Day

Traditional English Carol (c. 1400-1700)

Sing O my love, O my love, my love, my love, my love, This have I done for my true love.

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

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.

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 Fathers voice heard from above, to call my love to dance.
