One of the most fundamental questions asked throughout human history is, “How did the universe come into existence?” Throughout the ages spirituality has provided answers to that question through various mystical cosmologies. Today, science has an answer—the Big Bang theory. But can scientific and spiritual explanations, which are normally considered to be incompatible, co-exist? Is it possible to construct a single comprehensive vision that unites these seemingly divergent approaches to knowledge? The Architecture of the Universe attempts to do just that by extending a contemporary mystical cosmology and merging it with modern-day physics. The result is a new theory of physics, which proposes something more fundamental to the universe than time and space: existence. Emerging out of nothingness, existence serves as the basic component of time and space. Time and space are viewed not just as containers for everything in the universe, but rather as the substance out of which energy and mass arise. This radical viewpoint opens new realms of understanding, shedding light on mysterious aspects of quantum mechanics and Einstein’s theory of relativity. At the same time the theory creates a vision unifying science and spirituality by linking the infinite transcendent reality with the finite physical universe. Simple explanations along with illustrations make this book easily accessible and an interesting and inspiring read for a wide audience.
