‘Holographic Duality’ Hints at Hidden Subatomic World

•, By Natalie Wolchover
 If each energy field pervading space is thought of as the surface of a pond, and waves and particles are the turbulence on that surface, then the new evidence strengthens the argument that a vibrant, hidden world lies beneath.

For decades, the surface-level description of the subatomic world has been sufficient to make accurate calculations about most physical phenomena. But recently, a strange class of matter that defies description by known quantum mechanical methods has drawn physicists into the depths below.

“I’ve grown up as a physicist just living on that flatland, that 2-D space,” said Subir Sachdev, a physics professor at Harvard University who studies these strange forms of matter. Now, there is a whole new dimension to explore, he said, and “you can think of the particles as just ending on that surface.”

The knowledge that is becoming available to us through the use of computer mathematics - the math behind these things is advanced by computer speed - reminds me of Babel story in Genesis 11.


Genesis 11 (NIV)

11 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.

3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

8 So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.


In present times, the computer is our "Tower of Babel." How long is the Lord going to allow us to go on discovering ways into the understandings of the universe so that “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them." Is God going to allow it this time? Or is He going to bring it down again? After all, it is many of the scientific people who are using knowledge to gain more knowledge, who are the people who simply will not acknowledge Him.
