SIR ARTHUR EDDINGTON1 states that, philosophically, the notion of a beginning of the present order of Nature is repugnant to him. I would rather be inclined to think that the present state of quantum theory suggests a beginning of the world very different from the present order of Nature. Thermodynamical principles from the point of view of quantum theory may be stated as follows : (1) Energy of constant total amount is distributed in discrete quanta. (2) The number of distinct quanta is ever… 
A Phenomenological Relation for Decay Times
Georges Lemaitre was invited to London in 1931 in order to take part in a meeting of the British Association on the relation between the physical Universe and spirituality. There he proposed that the
Lemaître, the Big Bang and the Quantum Universe
Lemaitre’s work on the geometric nature of singularities and his speculations concerning the applications of quantum physics to cosmology are confronted with later achievements in these fields. His
The Physics of God and the Quantum Gravity Theory of Everything
Analysis is given of the Omega Point cosmology, an extensively peer-reviewed proof (i.e., mathematical theorem) published in leading physics journals by professor of physics and mathematics Frank J.
Conceptual Issues in Quantum Cosmology
I give a review of the conceptual issues that arise in theories of quantum cosmology. I start by emphasising some features of ordinary quantum theory that also play a crucial role in understanding
Why anything rather than nothing? The answer of quantum mechanics
Many researchers determine the question “Why anything rather than nothing?” to be the most ancient and fundamental philosophical problem. It is closely related to the idea of Creation shared by
On the diversity of stationary cosmologies in the first half of the twentieth century
Before the establishment of the hot Big Bang scenario as the modern paradigm of cosmology, it faced several early competitors : the so-called stationary cosmological models. There were truly plural

Quantum Mechanics, vacuum, particles, Gödel-Cohen incompleteness and the Universe
Are the standard laws of Physics really fundamental principles? Does the physical vacuum have a more primordial internal structure? Are quarks, leptons, gauge bosons… ultimate elementary objects?
One hundred years of the cosmological constant: from “superfluous stunt” to dark energy
Abstract We present a centennial review of the history of the term known as the cosmological constant. First introduced to the general theory of relativity by Einstein in 1917 in order to describe a

THE world—or space-time—is a four-dimensional continuum, and consequently offers a choice of a great many directions in which we might start off to look for an end; and it is by no means easy to

TLDR
A re-examination of the question of the motion of the sun with respect to the extra-galactic nebulae, based on only those nebular distances which are believed to be fairly reliable, indicates the probability of an approximately uniform upper limit to the absolute luminosity of stars, in the late-type spirals and irregular neBulae at least.
