Discussing The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking

I’m discussing this book on Facebook and Twitter for fun, enjoyment, and edification.

Here’s the resolution, definition, and opening statement:

  1. In “The Grand Design” Stephen Hawking postulates that the M-theory may be the Holy Grail of physics…the Grand Unified Theory which Einstein had tried to formulate and later abandoned. It expands on quantum mechanics and string theories.

    In my e-book on comparative mysticism is a quote by Albert Einstein: “…most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and most radiant beauty – which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive form – this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center of all religion.”

    Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity is probably the best known scientific equation. I revised it to help better understand the relationship between divine Essence (Spirit), matter (mass/energy: visible/dark) and consciousness (fx raised to its greatest power). Unlike the speed of light, which is a constant, there are no exact measurements for consciousness. In this hypothetical formula, basic consciousness may be of insects, to the second power of animals and to the third power the rational mind of humans. The fourth power is suprarational consciousness of mystics, when they intuit the divine essence in perceived matter. This was a convenient analogy, but there cannot be a divine formula.

  2. Ron,

    Thank you for your comment.

    People have begun to say the speed of light is not a constant.

  3. Steve,

    That wouldn’t surprise me. Yesterday’s “facts” are often disproved today. Quantum mechanics certainly upset Newtonian physics; it’s subjectivity upset Einstein.

  4. Ron,

    What makes you think animals never reach Gamma? Mystics reach Gamma. I have a brain entrainment CD for experiencing Gamma.

    Where’s the table of contents of your book?
    It might be helpful to put that on your website.

  5. Steefan,

    My e-book is free. Download it and look at the Contents on page 3. “A divine formula?” is on pages 60-61.

  6. Hm, this seems to be the only way to reach you. I’m on Facebook. Hopefully, you are too. There are so many people with my name, it’s better to find me via the Facebook page for my book, The Greatest Bible Study in Historical Accuracy by Steefen
