Creations

By Dr. Dick Wieder

     The Superforce--the provider of a universe--did it create only once? Would the Ultimate Creator relax on its laurels after the Primal Singularity and the resultant Big Bang? There are those who say yes. There is one and only one creation. It is around us. We are part of it. And it shall pass when the Ultimate One deems it necessary to end it all. And yet another view believes that creation Itself is one arm of a great oscillation that expands outward to the end of its tether; then rushes back to its beginning. There it will spring forward once more as if the universe is a great ball bouncing back and forth through space-time. Relentless. Unending. And without beginning or end.

     There is no way of knowing whether there are (or ever were) other creations than the one known. Yet, my mind recalls, infinite probabilities imply and condone infinite scenarios. This universe is merely one scenario of an infinite number of probabilities. It is expanding, slowing, and expending its fuel--matter, And no one truly knows its age, at least at present. All that is known is that the universe left singularity about fifteen to twenty billion years ago. If this universe is all that exists then the ultimate creative spirit is static. It means creation occurred once. Then stopped. I for one cannot accept this.

     Everything about this universe is on-going, repetitive in a positive sense, and cyclic. Even the carbon atoms in our bodies have been recycled about three times through the earth's mineral recycling process--based on the best estimates of the earth's age. Those same carbon atoms were forged in the hearts of stars that died out billions of years ago. And those same atoms will at some future time return to the hearts of stars-not-yet-born, This reality , this universe, is inescapable. If it is inescapable then it possesses an event horizon that bars anything from escaping, This event horizon is the edge of the universe. And approximately twenty billion years ago an event ocurred called singularity. It ruptured to form a universe of space, time, and matter. It has to possess an event: horizon. Remember "space" as we know it did not exist before singularity, At its most elementary level, space is the distance between two particles. When only the primordial particles existed threre was no space. At that point "space" was irrelevant and meaningless. Space evolved because matter evolved.

     In the microscopic world of the quantum, we can only refer back to our macroscopic world for reference. Therefore, the choice of words used in describing the quantum world and its effects becomes difficult. And it is frought with unintended implications. However, in view of this difficulty I wish to inquire as to this: what was going on at the new " spot " occupied by the Primordial Quantum Particle after it burst and began its expansion ? This "spot" is that point from which time and space and matter are expanding. Was it gobbled up by the energy required for expansion ? If it was gobbled up then creation is static.

     Physicists tell us that all--I mean all--particles possess a wave function. And all wave functions have particulate forms. The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle states that we cannot know both the position (particulate form) and the momentum (wave function) of any one particle simultaneously. And if we can only know or see the particulate form of this universe then we cannot know or see its wave function. But every particle has a wave function--even the primordial particle. We just require faith in our physics to know that the wave function for it does exist.

       Now the wave function of all particles in this universe can only extend as far as the universe extends--even if it is "back in on itself." For nothing can escape the event horizon of the universe. However, the wave function of the primordial particle exists outside the known universe, Therefore, the wave function of the universe extends truly to infinity...and in all dimensions. And since the human species can only know and experiment with, and is actually part of the primordial particle, it is obvious that the human species cannot truly know the point particles own primordial wave function. But certainly he must believe that it is there.

     This wave function must have certain describable qualities. We can describe it in terms of what it is not very easily. It is not governed by time for it exists prior to the beginning of time. It is beyond natural law for: natural law was the dictate of the new universe itself. It may even be beyond entropy. For entropy is the result of the physical laws that dictate the form of only this universe and no other. It may have ten or eleven dimensions, Perhaps more. It is believed that this wave function may have the ability to create in ten to eleven dimensions.

     If the primordial wave function of this universe is anything at all like the wave function within this universe--and there is no reason to believe otherwise-then it has also a wave length. It must then periodically...crest. The distance between crests is the wave length. Outside the universe there would be infinite distance between crests. Could infinity then have limits, that being the wavelength of the primordial particle's wave function. That then is the definition of infinity. And there--where the probabilities tell us the whereabouts of the particle form of a wave function--there, at the crest of the wave--a new universe springs into being. If this be the case then creation is not static; it is infinitely on-going.

     It might be easier to assume that if these other universes exist that they enter reality at the same "spot" from whence this one has come. And are therefore "behind" this universe rushing out toward it from within. The mind may only be able to conceive it that way. But it may not be entirely correct. Due to events that occurred early on in the Big Bang--events that went the way of matter--we are only able to perceive our universe in three dimensions. And we experience the universe through a fourth dimension--time, quantum physics has implied that there may be as many as eleven dimensions to this universe. These seven other dimensions are rolled up in the force fields of particles. But the ultimate wave function could conceivably create a universe with all eleven dimensions "perceptible." Those would be strange and beautiful worlds,is this creation also strange and beautiful. But so is this creation also strange and beautiful?

     The wave function of the primordial particle stretches out beyond this universe to infinity. It is eternal. It is the alpha and the omega. It is the beginnings without end, If there is anything close to being a scientific description of that which we call God then it is this: God is the wave function ion of the universe. And if God has qualities, the first among these must be creativity. It might be more believable to say that God has a need to be creating. To be continuously producing new universes in unknown directions and dimensions. Each crest resulting in a distinctly beautiful event that must provide awe and humility for those life forms who can perceive it that might evolve there.

     In fact, we do have a hint of these unknown realities. It was said by someone long ago. And only recently has it gained a new meaning for me. For a far better one than the you or the me once remarked that in his Father's house were many mansions.
