The impossible task of physics for the last few decades has been to figure out how General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics are part of the same universe, bc they seem to contradict each other at every turn. Inflation Theory was one way of describing how they jive, and now we have actual evidence that supports that way of explaining it. Woo! Way big deal. My inner physicist is peeing his pants.
Because my children’s spiritual formation is important to me, we are watching this together tonight.
Does the overall behavior of the universe change over time? I represent a tradition of people who claim to have observed evidence that the universe’s behavior is going through a kind of phase change. The Jesus-event we call “Easter” is indicative of what is happening to the cosmos as a whole. Time will tell if we are right about that.
