Quantum Physics is a field of study that holds promise of new ways of looking at things to help us understand reality as we know it. There have been breakthroughs in this field of study, yet most seem to know little of it other than its existence. I’m not going to focus on Quantum Physics per say, but rather how it relates to God and ultimately, to us.
1 Cor 2:6-7 Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory.
To begin we need to define entanglement as it’s understood today. Entanglement refers to what Einstein referred to as “Spooky action at a distance” Sounds real scientific, doesn’t it? 🙂
Phys.org defines it thus; Entanglement is a special feature of the quantum world in which certain properties of individual particles become linked such that knowledge of the quantum state of any one particle dictates that of the others.
One of the interesting things about entanglement, is that the entangled particles can be separated across the universe, yet changes in the state of one affect the others instantaneously. Let that sink in, the change is instantaneous. The studies so far have only detected 2 (and now up to 3) particles entangled at any one time. But what if this is an anomaly?
God warned Adam and Eve, in the garden of Eden, not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. He warned them that if they ever did that they would die that day, and so it was. They sinned by eating that fruit, yet they did not physically die that day, however they died spiritually, they were separated in their relationship with God. Now I have heard even recently that the reason we are also sinners is that it is passed down in the DNA of the human genome. However even if this is true, it’s not the complete picture, it doesn’t take into account that the entire creation was cursed as a result of man’s sin. So why was creation cursed?
I believe that answer can be found in Gen 1:26. Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
God placed the creation at man’s disposal, He would not take that dominion back, however He will at some point restore that which He took not away. But that’s a topic for another discussion. God cannot have sin in His presence. Is it possible that this sin, inadvertently created an instantaneous separation of God with his entire creation? He still upholds it by the word of His own power, but if (apart from that) sin instantly separated Him from them and the creation, it would make sense. Why you ask? Look at the penalty that God warned them about, many think it’s because God was getting even with them for disobedience. But that can’t be, for we know, God is good, His intentions toward man have always been good. God’s entanglement may have been with every particle ever created, but with the dominion having been given to man, it linked the creation with man and was subject to whatever man was subject to. This places the chaotic catastrophe directly on man, when he ate the fruit it was like switching the light switch off so to speak, and not an action God had to take to curse him.
Perhaps man still has the blueprint of what he was in the Garden of Eden, and the genes relating to that have merely been turned off, recessive and not able to turn on because man’s particles are no longer entangled with God. It would certainly explain how man spiritually died instantly the moment he sinned. Since the particles in his makeup were no longer entangled with God, he started to physically age as well and eventually died. Perhaps the strongest evidence that this could be true is found in Ephesians 1:7-10
“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.”
Did you catch that part, a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth? Hmmm…Things in heaven, and things on earth, pretty much covers it all I’d say. But the part that I really want you to catch is “to unite all things in him” Is not this God’s entanglement, connected with all things, every particle that exists? It is reminiscent of John 17:20-23 “I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, 23 I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.
Imagine the workings of such a relationship. His every action would cause an instantaneous reaction in every particle that exists, as creation and man respond to their Creator. Can I be dogmatic, no… I do however wonder if this is not so. If it is, we will have the honor to be connected to Him, every particle of us, for eternity. Marriage is a picture of Christ and the Church, could there be a closer, more intimate relationship, than to have every particle of your being, connected to the one who loves you most? There are exciting times ahead for the believer!
