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.

Why anything rather than nothing? The answer of quantum mechanics

Many researchers determine the question “Why anything rather than nothing?” as the most ancient and fundamental philosophical problem. Furthermore, it is very close to the idea of Creation shared by

A Modal Condition for the Beginning of the Universe

This paper considers two problems – one in philosophy of religion and another in philosophy of physics – and shows that the two problems have one solution. Some Christian philosophers have endorsed

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
