String Theory - Old Blog Repost from 10/13/2008

Please note that I am simply reposting this from my old Myspace blog (remember myspace??).  I didn't edit it or even check it for badly constructed sentences.  You have been warned.


So, I was watching a program about the Theory of Everything last night, which includes String Theory. String Theory is described as follows:

"We have this idea that the basic constituents of nature are these vibrating strings, that their vibrational patterns dictate the properties of particles, and they dictate the kinds of forces at work in the world. Force particles are also associated with particular patterns of string vibration and hence everything, all matter and all forces, is unified under the same rubric of microscopic string oscillations—the "notes" that strings can play." (Brian Greene)

"In a nutshell, the fundamental particles of the Universe are not made of different material, but the same material. The reason they display different characteristics is because their internal strings are vibrating differently. If string theory is correct, the sum total of the unimaginably small vibrating strings equates to the harmonic symphony of the Universe we see around us." (Dr Duncan Copp)

Please note that neither of the past two quotes are from Christian or religious sources. Google them and see for yourself.

Anyhow, as I was watching this program all of a sudden a thought struck me to my core, that Genesis describes the creation of this universe as being caused by God's spoken Word. It wasn't His thoughts or an action on His part, but His Word. So, it seemed so fitting that a sound would be at the core of everything and that it is but the tone of each sound that would dictate form. After considering it, I assumed I couldn't be the only person who would have thought of this... and I wasn't. The following is an article that I found that was pretty interesting. The only thing it doesn't touch on that I want to look into is the idea of the power of our words. The Bible says that life and death are in the power of the tongue. God makes a real point of how we are to control what we speak as well as the power of confession. Further, we know that there is power in praise and thanksgiving. Not just thanking and praising God in our minds, but verbally. It is no wonder that music plays such a large part in both our relationship with God AND in our cultures. If at the center of everything is the voice of God, how appropriate is it that we would be moved by music. Further, in Luke 19, as Jesus is entering Jerusalem, the Pharisees condemn those praising Jesus so loudly and isn't it interesting that Jesus responds "I tell you, if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out!" I never understood this verse until now! How could stones cry out or emanate sound? Because at their very core is the sound of Gods voice and He has declared who Jesus is! So why would mere stones not confirm this? I'm going to dig deeper into this... Enjoy the following article though. It definitely touches on alot of what I've been studying and hearing. I just think it's wonderful that at the core of so many biblical foundations is SPEAKING and HEARING, and the top minds of our time have concluded that sound is at the core of everything! That's great!!!

String theory, Extray Dimensions and the Symphony of Life
by: Andre Rabe

There's a lot of talk these days about extra dimensions. A scientific theory that has received much attention lately is called 'string theory' and suggest that there are many more dimensions than what we currently observe. If you are interested in that type of thing, I found this web-site very interesting: 'Elegant Universe'.

When mankind discovered the atom, many thought that it was the smallest particle that matter consists of, but pretty soon we understood that an atom consists of protons, neutrons and electrons. But what are they made of? Further investigation unveiled quarks! But what are they made of? A central concept to string theory is that the smallest components of matter are small bits of energy vibrating like the strings on a violin. These vibrations form a cosmic symphony which is at the heart of all reality. In the same way as a violin can produce many variation of musical notes, these strings, vibrating at different frequencies, form all the fundamental particles of the reality we observe. Our universe is the beautiful symphony produced by the resonance of all these vibrating strings.
I can't but see the significance of Heb 1:3 speaking of Christ " … upholding and sustaining and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power." At the core of all reality is the sound - the sound of God's voice that spoke creation into being - the Voice that never grows dim, but continues to sustain all existence.

As mentioned before, string theory also suggest the existence of additional dimensions. There is indeed another dimension referred to in the scriptures - whether it has anything to do with string theory or not, I don't know yet. However, the scriptures reveal a dimension that existed before time & space; before creation; before the existence of evil …. In this eternal realm, the purpose, the course, the duration and final destination of time and space was planned in meticulous detail before it even began. What happened in this dimension is of direct consequence to your existence!

Paul wrote about this dimension or realm in a letter to the Ephesians: "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm! He chose us ,identified and named us as His own in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be set apart for Him and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love. For He destined us to be revealed as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will."

Before our milky way was formed, before our sun ignited, before Jupiter or Mars began their orbit, before the earth was able to support life … you were planned and named for a very specific purpose. You predate the dinosaurs! You began way before your conception. "Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days of my life were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them." (Ps. 139:16) It is this realm, this eternal dimension, that preserves the truth about you. In our temporal, time-bound realm there might be many events, circumstances and experiences that tries to contradict the truth about you … but they are as shadows compared to the unchangeable truth about you that has been decided before time began and will remain the only truth after time has come to an end. What is this truth about me, you might ask? You were made to be loved; You are blameless in His sight; You were chosen, identified and named in Christ before creation, as such you are more than a physical creation - you belong to that eternal realm; you belong in Christ. You are an offspring, not of creation, but of the Eternal One.  


  1. Brina, thanks for sharing this on multiple levels. On the surface, I now have a frame of reference for Sheldon's research on the Big Bang Theory. But more importantly, this resonates (no pun intended) with a few random things that have been swirling inside, helping to bring them to cohesion. A lot to chew on-thankfully. Thanks again!

    1. Thank you for taking the time to read it. I'm certain that there's more to it than this summary, but it resonated with me too. I thought it also aligned with the truth of God's Word, which is always amazing.

      p.s. I am new to Big Bang Theory, but love it and wish it wouldn't have taken me so long to check it out. Oh, well. Gotta love on demand.

    1. Thanks! I promise I won't post a link to my blog on your blog every day. It just so happened it synced for me. So, thanks for reading it.

  3. Oh, heck. Link away. Don't mind a bit and I love all the connections with scripture.

  4. NOW you're expanding your big picture,now move on to quantum entanglement,then
    think about souls,ghosts and dare I say it? HEAVEN and/or an afterlife.

    1. My big picture is more expansive than others tend to realize and less than it should really be. I'm trying, I'm trying.
