Physicists realize that when you split the atom into smaller and smaller pieces, eventually the atoms lack solidarity altogether.  The atoms dissolve into fields of energy. As a result, Nobel Prize winning physicist Louis de Broglie stated that matter arises from electromagnetic fields of energy. It’s fair to say, then, that matter is simply a physical representation of energy fields in our visible, three-dimensional universe.

One way of looking at the universe is that it is nothing more than the amalgamation of the periodic table of elements, basically matter and gases. These elements are not the building blocks of the universe because they, themselves, break down into energy fields.  Even if you believed that consciousness emerges from matter, the basic building block of the atom is an energy field. In that event, the source of consciousness is an energy field.

So, what is the universe, then, and how can we best describe it?  Well, the concept of an energy field is a rather amorphous one.  When it’s faced with this type of dead-end, science simply refers to it as dark matter or dark energy. That is, all the stuff in the universe that they haven’t found yet (by some estimates 85% of the universe), but if they had found it would explain “creation.”

Note:  See the problem? The stuff that created the universe has never been found.  It’s not in the matter and gases that have been observed in the physical universe.

As for the mind, the mind, like dark energy, has never been found by science.  It apparently does not reside in the brain.  What we can hypothesize about both the mind and dark energy is that they must be either invisible (and undetectable) or lie outside of the universe.

This ties in to the “spooky action” problem in science.  That’s where particles are aware of the actions of other particles which lie completely across the universe with no contact of any kind. This has been proven over and over again by experiment without a scientific explanation of any kind. However, what if the universe is one giant, unified field of energy or that all particles were connected to such a field of energy that lied outside of the universe. That could easily explain spooky action.

Something akin to that has already been discovered by Russian molecular biologist Pjotr Gariaiev who worked on The Human Genome Project. What he found is a process by which our DNA functions similarly to a biological internet.  The actual communication process involves an energy field that all life exists in, an energy field that connects all living cells through what’s referred to as a non-local area phenomena; that is, outside of space and time.

Quantum physics has discovered the existence of something that is generally referred to as the Zero Point Field. It is an all-pervasive sea of quantum energy in the universe. It is characterized by virtual particles which mysteriously appear and disappear out of nowhere, all within a fraction of a second. It is one of the reasons why physicist David Bohm believes that a quantum field is the true source of our reality, a quantum field which is projected from another realm that is beyond space and time.

What we have is a lot of questions and a lot of theories based on a lot of assumptions. Epicurus must be turning over in his grave. In the end, science will be faced with the proposition that the answers to their big questions all lie beyond space and time. It appears that we never meant to understand the mysteries of the universe. Albert Einstein even said as much.


“I regard matter as derivative from consciousness.”   – Max Planck, physicist


A couple of posts ago I started with this: “Science says that the universe is missing.  Missing, you understand. They can’t find the ‘dark matter’ and ‘dark energy,’ assuming that they even exist.  Actually, at this point in time, they’re simply part of a formula on a chalkboard and nothing more.” Well, some of you have asked so here’s my answer to the question of whether or not the universe is really missing.

First, it’s important to define the term “universe.” Most people, indeed some scientists, believe that the universe is what I refer to as a closed system. That is, the universe is all there is.  As a result, the laws of physics don’t always explain everything.  That is, there are anomalies that science can’t deal with.  Today, many scientists are in search of The Theory of Everything so that they can finally explain these anomalies. The core of that search is the quantification of gravity and quantum mechanics.  Of course, it would help if we actually knew what gravity is, but we don’t.

The problem has been somewhat recognized by science because they realize that there must have been something before The Big Bang.  So, now for example, we have multiverse theory (e.g. parallel universes).  In theory, that’s a start.  However, the problem is much bigger than that.

What we need is an understanding of everything in creation – the universe, the multiverse, the sub-atomic quantum world and most importantly…the source of all creation.  That’s why there was a lot of chatter about scientists finding the Higgs Boson or The God Particle.  However, even if it was a God particle, it’s merely a particle of this three- dimensional universe and nothing more.  Okay, four-dimensional if you’re counting space-time.

Dark matter and dark energy are not “missing.” They are simply constructs in a mathematical formula which doesn’t reflect all of reality. Dark matter and dark energy are necessary in cosmology for one reason and one reason only: to complete a formula written on a chalkboard; a formula which, at its best, measures only our known universe.  Nikola Tesla put it best when he said that, “Today’s scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality.”

Physicist David Bohm has stated that the true source of our reality is projected from another realm which is beyond space and time. A projection you understand; actually a holographic projection, a holographic universe. And the physics of holograms is different from the physics of our so-called material world. A lot different. Actually, the sub-atomic quantum world is already known to have different physics.  Thus, the search for the Theory of Everything.

So, how does the search for the Theory of Everything end? Unfortunately, it ends badly since science cannot observe beyond space and time.  All we’ll ever get is theories, and nothing more. Life, and science, requires cause and effect and there’s no way to always be able to observe the cause, especially if it’s coming from beyond space and time (outside of our universe).  Therefore, it will always be impossible to prove the existence of a Creator and likewise impossible to scientifically refute one either. One thing I’m pretty sure of, though, is that dark matter and dark energy, at some point, will not be part of future scientific theories.  Such is the nature of science, that it is always changing.

The universe isn’t missing.  We just haven’t found it yet.


All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”  – Max Planck, physicist


Science says that the universe is missing.  Missing, you understand. They can’t find the “dark matter” and “dark energy,” assuming that they even exist.  Actually, at this point in time, they’re simply part of a formula on a chalkboard and nothing more.

Then, there’s the trivial matter that the universe shouldn’t even exist.  Of course, it does.  Well, doesn’t it? The backstory/theory goes something like this. The Big Bang was supposedly the beginning of all life.  According to the laws of physics, the universe is composed of matter and anti-matter in exactly equal and offsetting amounts. As a result, the universe should have been cancelled out and, therefore, we should not exist – according to the laws of physics, you understand.

Then, there’s the question of what came before the Big Bang?  This is a rather sticky wicket, so to speak. Science doesn’t know what came before the Big Bang, and actually it’s not their fault because it’s impossible for anyone to ever know. That’s because science is based on observation and measurement and, as John Horgan said in his book entitled The End of Science, we can’t observe what took place before the Big Bang because it is outside of space and time.  How about singularities, then? I won’t bother trying to explain what a singularity is… because I don’t know. As for science, they seem pretty confused on the subject as well.  For example, physicist Andrew Strominger of Harvard University stated that, “A singularity is when we don’t know what to do.  What’s so embarrassing about singularities is that we can’t predict what’s going to come out of it.” Yeah, that is pretty embarrassing.

According to science, inflation is the dynamite at the core of The Big Bang Theory.  However, Dr. Michael Turner, a cosmologist at the University of Chicago, stated that, ‘If inflation is the dynamite behind the Big Bang, we’re still looking for the match.”  Myself, I would say that they should actually be looking for the matchmaker.  Bottom line: If you can’t identify the matchmaker, you can’t possibly write the true laws of physics.

Some scientists today have come to believe that there must be things beyond our universe.  As a result, science has “progressed” to string theory, multiverse theory and simulation theory, just to name a few. As physicist John Wheeler put it,“The universe does not exist ‘out there,’ independent of us. We are inescapably involved in bringing about that which appears to be happening. We are not only observers. We are participators.” Then, there is Max Planck who believes that consciousness is fundamental to Nature. If either of those gentlemen are correct, the only conclusion that I can draw is that we have absolutely no idea who we are as a species.

Science has reached its fundamental limits and yet we have a number of major loose ends at this point. There’s the matchmaker, the observers/participators (according to Wheeler) and consciousness. With such big issues, seemingly with no answers, who really cares, then, if the universe is missing?
