“Silently, and without warning of any kind, it came. Every cosmic structure it swept over was left disembodied and disfigured in its wake. The description was frightening in both its awful swiftness and its devastating completeness.
The shock wave began at a particular but rather undistinguished point of space-time and then traveled outward at blinding speed, rapidly approaching the speed of light. The expanding bubble then enveloped an ever larger portion of the universe. Because of its phenomenal velocity, the shock wave impinged upon regions of space with no advance warning. No light signals, radio waves, or causal communication of any kind could outrun the advancing front and forewarn of the impending doom. Preparation was as impossible as it was futile.
Inside the bubble, the laws of physics and hence the very character of the universe were completely changed. The values of the physical constants, the strengths of the fundamental forces, and the masses of the elementary particles were all different. New physical laws ruled in this Alice-in-Wonderland setting. The old universe, with its old version of the laws of physics, simply ceased to exist.
One could view this death and destruction of the old universe as a cause for concern. Alternatively . . . as a reason for celebration. Inside the bubble, with its new physical laws and the accompanying new possibilities for complexity and structure, the universe has achieved a new beginning”. - The Five Ages of the Universe: Inside the Physics of Eternity
2 Peter 3:8-10:
8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.

I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18 I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades”. Revelation 1: 12-18
An homage to Sir Isaac Newton’s laws of motion and universal gravitation. His theories for the explanation of mutual attraction between every particle of matter in the universe led him to the inevitable conclusion that: “This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.”
A powerful being that nonetheless, took Himself the form of a servant to dwell among His creation and show the way to a relationship with Newton’s powerful Being , and humankind.
The Scarlet Worm (Tola’ath in Hebrew) is a type of worm native of Israel which, when reaching maturity, climbs up a tree where it will remained attached until it dies. As the worm begins the process of death, the offspring inside are being sustained and nurtured through a red secretion that emanates from the worm as it dyes, all the while the body of the worm begins to turn white in color, a whiteness similar to that of snow. Thus, in the end the worm has made the sacrifice of giving its own life for that of its offspring.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”. - Isaiah 1:18
Quantum superposition Particles drifting to and fro like a cat inside a box existing neither here nor there nowhere and everywhere in a most indeterminate state If observation collapses quantum states how then can anything truly exist, when nothing rather than something, Is all that truly Is? If all matters of the universe are immaterial unless collapsed by sentience if reality is really indeterminate How then do I exist experiencing biology alone or in a multitude holding strength and weakness in my fist?
“Reductio ad Absurdum”
An ultimate observer must be the answer to the measurement problem transcending the physical domain the equations of quantum mechanics collapsing the indeterminacy of particles in the totality of what is Quantum superposition particles neither here nor there but the All-knowing Mind commands physicality infinite regress to a halt collapsing the ultimate indeterminism through the universe the inscrutable reason for the intentional existence of everything rather than nothing.
