附录A -科学允许的神通和奇迹呢 ？
有些人认为，化腐朽为神奇是不可能的，并用科学作为这种说法的理由。 化腐朽为神奇，可以从神的奇迹，或通过神圣的天使工作。 或化腐朽为神奇的是在虚假的迹象，从堕落天使的奇迹和奇观的形式。
这样做的主要目的是为了显示，现代科学并不排除存在着化腐朽为神奇的。 我相信现代科学实际上无论是那种上帝或天使完全允许工作在不违反科学规律的奇迹，并存在天使和他们的圣经描述的能力。 涉及的科学都只是理论上的，主要是世俗的理论，我不声称它是正确的，但其中很大一部分是这样一些人所接受。
希腊 - 标志“的semeion”（4592），奇迹“捷拉斯”（5059），并奇迹“潜能”（1411）。 这些相同的3个字都用在以下方面：
1。 神 - 神的神，耶稣基督和圣灵，通过赠品的奇迹作为整个圣经的迹象，奇迹，奇迹的力量
2。 圣天使 - 圣天使。 （使徒2时22分，5时12分，2彼得2:11，希伯来书2时04分）
3。 堕落天使，龙兽，“3邪恶的精神，如青蛙”。 （马特24:24，帖撒罗尼迦后书2:9，冯13:2，14，16时14）
弗3时18分可能是能够理解所有圣人的广度和长度 ，和深度 ，并高度
冯1时08分，我 Alpha和欧米茄， 开始和结束 ， 耶和华如此说 ，这是，这是来，全能。
根据现代科学的，我们生活在一个observably 4维宇宙。 宇宙是空间（3）+时间（1）的尺寸，这等于我们可以看到时空。 上帝创造了所有3个维度的空间，我们看到（长度，宽度和高度），当上帝“创造天地”。 （弗3时18还引用的“深度”比较多的大小或程度或全范围的东西。）上帝创造了时间维度“开始”，这标志着创建时间本身，时间维度因为我们知道它。 神是永恒的，时间本身，神以外的时间，并在这里创建时间之前。 上帝有完整的权力和控制时间维度。 神也取得了三个维度的空间，我们可以看到，也是他们之外。 于是，上帝创造了这一切，是整个宇宙之外，创造了它。
“在身体方面，维度是指所有空间的组成结构（参量），其在时间上的位置（被视为一个沿t轴标尺寸），以及空间物体的宪法结构内有粒子和领域概念之间的相关性，交互质量的相对属性，这是从根本上说明的数学。 这些轴或其他可引用唯一标识一个点或其他对象和事件的态度和关系的结构 。 纳入时间的物理理论，如广义相对论，表示工作在4维空间-时间“，（作为Minkowski空间中定义 ）。 现代理论往往是“高维”，包括量子场，弦理论。 量子力学的状态空间是无穷维函数空间“ -尺寸，维基百科
“科幻小说文本经常挂在嘴边的维度的概念，真正指的是平行宇宙，备用的宇宙，或存在其他飞机时 。 这种用法是来源于想法，存在的并行/交替的宇宙/飞机旅行，必须前往的方向/除了标准的尺寸。 效果，其他宇宙/飞机刚刚从我们自己的一个小的距离，但距离第四（或更高）的空间（或非空间）维度，而不是标准的。“
在科幻小说中的“平行宇宙”概念实际上是从科学的“维”一词的使用非常不同，你可以在上面看到。 从理论上讲，“平行宇宙”也将有3个空间的尺寸（长度，宽度，高度）和一个时间维度。 这实际上意味着一个“平行宇宙”在理论上有其自身的尺寸。 此外，假设是，有5 个维度将用于我们的宇宙平行的世界，它有自己的4个维度，让旅游。
它会说“平行宇宙”使用相同的4个维度，我们的宇宙，因为根据定义，“宇宙”的一切，是不准确的。 因此，“平行宇宙”将有其自己定义其现实性和宇宙结构的尺寸构造，并不仅仅是借用使用的尺寸在我们自己的宇宙继承。 这当然是所有从科幻小说，这与实际的科学无关的的虚构理论。 而我想澄清这一点，任何声明，科学“的其他方面的”直理论不会有什么“平行宇宙”的科幻概念。 如果科学观察“ 第 5维度”我们的宇宙中固有的一些证据，这与“平行宇宙”无关。 “维”一词首先是一门科学术语，误导，并已在这样的解释方式，其含义是借用科幻。
, and that at the end of the 6 th day God “ saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, [it was] very good…Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.” Gen 1:31,2:1.圣经教导，“在开始的”神造“天地”，和6 日神结束“看到每次他的事，而且，不料，它是很好的 ... 因此，天地完成后，和他们所有的主机。“创1:31,2:1 。
这意味着神造的天地，和他们的主机，他的一切。 没有任何其他除了神造的，有任何除了我们知道，上帝创造了宇宙的全部的其他宇宙中没有提到。 因此，实际上是没有“平行宇宙”，违背“圣经”的概念本身，这个宇宙是所有神说，是由“圣经”明确界定的。 上帝创造了天地，这些条款是定义良好，且有没有神，除了天地，和他们的主机。
第二个是天上的外层空间，位于太阳和月亮，和所有的恒星，行星和星系。 （耶8:2，ISA 13:10）
第三是天上的神居住的地方，在神的宝座，这是天使在天上。 （1健诗篇2:4，66:1，11:4，ISA 2 CH 18时18分，马特5:16）上午8时30分，第三层天上去也被称为“天堂”或“天上的天堂” 。 这就是所谓的“天上的天堂”，因为它是第一和第二天堂的天堂。 （1健8:27，申命记10时14分）
地球，大气（先天地），外层空间（第二天堂），并在神的宝座和天上的使者住（第三层天上去）的所有领域，在所有神的创造存在。 这些都不是一个“平行宇宙”，所以圣经没有说明“平行宇宙”存在。 相反，“圣经”的整个创作的彻底定义，实际上排除了任何的“平行宇宙”的概念中线的存在。
地球有4个维度，我们可以看到，但也圣经教导我们，地球上的存在是一种无形的精神境界就在我们身边，并在这种精神境界，精神有一种存在，像圣洁的天使，堕落天使和恶魔。 我们知道，当他们赶出去，恶魔，穿越沙漠的地方，但我们无法看到它们。 （路加福音11:24）马特12点43分，我们知道，军队可以在这个地球上存在的不可见的，在我们面前的，而其余看不见。 这件事发生在以利沙和他的朋友的情况下，以利沙祷告说，耶和华，我求你了，打开他的眼睛，他可能会看到。 耶和华开了年轻人的目光;他看到，不料，山上的[是]关于以利沙的一轮火马和战车“（2健6:17）当神睁开眼睛精神境界，他看到了军队各地他们为他们的战斗。 这是我们周围存在的精神境界，而且是无形的。
5-6乔什提到神的军队，这是“主机的天堂”或神的使者，军队，相同的排序是在杰里科的战斗，“他说，不仅如此;但 主机队长耶和华我现在。 约书亚在他的脸上下跌在地上，并没有崇拜，对他说，什么仰我对他的仆人的主吗 ？“（乔什5:14）主的”主机“是他的军队，这是天使。 虽然耶利哥的城墙似乎奇迹般地下降，“圣经”确实表明，神的天使军队。 这是完全可能的，上帝的天使，一只手在杰里科墙下来的实际力学。 因此，我们知道有一种无形的精神境界，在地球上。
在第一天，大气，“圣经”还指出，除了空气和云层的气氛，也有无形的精神境界，的物理部分。 天使飞在大气中，这是第一天，所以必须有太多无形的精神境界。 （埃泽8:3，约翰1:32，启8:13），撒旦被称为“王子”空气动力 “圣经”，和“空气”是指大气中（弗2:2）。
第三天堂似乎完全是一种无形的精神境界，当我们进入空间的最远达到，我们不能看到神的宝座或天使。 由于明显的是，它显示了我们，正是地方神的宝座和天上的使者，他们是在一种无形的精神境界。 这使得第三层天上去的意义上说是一种精神境界，作为第三个是天上的神，神是个灵。
“他梦见，不料在地球上成立的一个阶梯，它的顶部达到天堂：谁知它的神升序和降序的天使。 ，不料，耶和华站在它上面的，并说，我[上午]耶和华神对亚伯拉罕你的父亲，和以撒的神：土地whereon你liest，你我会放弃它，和你的后裔... ...“
创28:12-13清楚，第二天堂，这是外层空间，必须也包含无形的精神境界，因为我们没有看到天使，因为他们升入通过第二天堂下降。 雅各看见神表示的阶梯给了一个天使的方法，通过它升降。 雅各可以看到，上面的阶梯主表示，距离不是很远，天使不得不前往。 因此，“圣经”，似乎教天使实际上不具有横向外层空间广阔的距离，才能到达地球，是看到的物理尺寸。 相反，在无形的精神境界，天地之间距离短，不超过一个阶梯，你可以看到顶部。 已建立一种永久的阶梯天使穿过第二天堂， 第一和第三天上神。 天使派出快速向地球，作为无形的精神境界，是没有时间是在物理学界的物理尺寸的限制。 这其实是有些模糊，但我们可以从圣经说的总体思路。 在任何情况下，无形的精神境界也似乎存在着整个第二天堂，这是外层空间。
等地球和所有3天上有一种无形的的精神境界，通过所有这些似乎弥漫。 在这个地球上的精神境界就在我们身边，但无形的。 圣经教导我们，上帝创造一种无形的宇宙，“对于他所有的事情：在天上和地上的东西，有形和无形的，无论是王位或权力或统治者或主管机关;所有的事情由他创建和他。“（西1:16）
应该指出，“统治者，当局”这里所有的条款是指堕落的天使。 这可以看出，与弗6:12，“因为我们不反对血肉搏斗，但对执政的，对权力，对这个世界的黑暗统治者对高[地方]的精神邪恶 “。等等这些权力和当局是无形的堕落天使。
虽然他们身体清单，似乎堕落的天使，也有类似精神的机构。 我们是在我们的肉体，被4个维度的4维。 天使的精神，和他在路加福音24复活后的耶稣说：“看哪，我的手，我的脚，这是我自己：处理我，并且看到一种精神祂所没有肉和骨头，正如你们看到我有 。“路加福音24:39
这可能是，真正的天使是不是我们住在3物理尺寸的物理生活，因为我们是。 相反，天使是精神的精神境界，和他们的“机构”的精神境界存在。 他们住在3我们所处的物理尺寸的东西组成，人体的这种无形的精神境界的物质组成，他们的尸体，它将使意义
哥林多前书15:40，44 [有]天体，和机构的陆地：但天体的荣耀之一，[荣耀]陆地[是]另一个... ...，它是播种面积一个自然的身体; 它提出了一个灵性的身体。 有一个自然的身体，和有灵性的身体。
圣经承认可以有精神，或精神团体的机构。 由于我们人类的陆地机构组成的4维物理问题，它将使意义，生活的精神或天体将相当于无形的精神境界的“物质”组成。 天使有这样的精神机构，并创建等。 它将使意义上，有至少5 个维度，如果天使“机构不多，而且是我们的”4D的事“，精神境界的比喻组成。 可能是由几个维度的精神境界，在长期的科学意义上的一种精神境界的宽度，长度和高度，如。 4维的物理世界，我们经常理解的精神境界，但是，即使是只有1个额外的维度，在科学意义上的长期，无形的精神境界， 仍然是5个维度，1个多个维度。
所有这一切导致这种无形的精神境界，可能是由多个维度，按照科学的长期使用，。 额外维度（S）的无形的精神境界，将是一个额外的维度，至少有一比，我们认为4个维度。 因此，这将是公平调用天使“额外维”，比我们，ESP更方面的意义。 如果无形的精神境界与额外维度，按照科学的长期使用。
然而，神不单纯是额外维。 上帝是永恒的，所以我称之为“外维”。 神以外的维度，是永恒的造物主的一切，包括了天地的所有理论层面，和生活在其中的一切。 所以硬币的一个术语，上帝是“外维”。 这是一个重要的区别之间的造物主上帝，和他的创作。 圣经上说，所有三个天地不能包含神，这使得为他做了所有的意识;，但他们做管理包含他创造的一切“，但神确实住在地上吗？ 不料，天上的天堂和天堂不能包含你这个房子少多少，我builded“健8:27？
现在，地球是上帝，科学已经研究了很多东西，并为第一和第二的天堂一样，它具有可见的尺寸。 我们也知道，整个神的创造是一种无形的的精神境界。 科学说得多，在可见的物理领域。 但事实上，是无形的精神境界不意味着科学永远不会有什么说的，或没有规则或界限可能操作的人生活在那里的天使。 事实上，它似乎也有规则和界限，物理定律一样，这是继承的精神境界，以及。 即使在12冯圣天使和堕落天使之间的战斗表明，有反对的最存在一些精神境界物理的力量。 这意味着即使在圣天使盛行，推从天上堕落的天使，铸造他们脚踏实地。 你不能有一个天使所隐含的物理概念没有一些推，甚至在精神境界。 因此，有一定的偶然性，无形的精神境界，确实有它的物理规则，如果是这样，无形的精神境界触摸可见的物理领域，我们知道，科学可能能够收集一些有识之士，或提供一些见解。 这种可能性是特别有趣的和现代学习的东西是看不见的物理和无形的尺寸在宇宙中的场景背后可能存在的理论。
是建立在现代物理学的一些分行通过实验，如引力，相对论，量子力学，多粒子物理学，电磁，弱的和强的核力量。 弦理论是不成立的，而是企图把这些树物理学所有分支在一起，将它们连接起来，画出看到，所有的树枝干从主干。 弦理论是理论性很强的，未经证实的，可能improvable和无法核实的，高度数学的，需要10-11尺寸理论上可以来形容现代物理学的树的树干。
“有多少空间的尺寸有吗？ 难道我们真的知道吗 ？ 到现在为止，我希望你会同意，这将是大言不惭要求，我们一定不存在额外维度知道。 我们看到三个维度的空间，但有可能，我们还没有检测。 你知道现在可以隐藏的额外维度，要么因为他们是蜷缩起来，小，或，因为时空扭曲和重力集中在一个小地区，甚至是无限维是无形的。 无论哪种方式，是否尺寸的紧凑型或局部，时空会出现四维无处不在，无论你在哪里。“
- 莉萨兰德尔博士，弯曲通道：揭开宇宙的隐藏维度，PG奥秘。 437
丽莎兰德尔说，根据现代物理学，有可能会非常大，甚至无限大的，无形的方面，确实存在，但我们只能感知的4个维度的时空。 像这样的5 个大尺寸可以是无形的精神境界，在“圣经”的教导，其中包含在该维度的精神机构的天使。
“如果是事实，以解释率在恒星轨道我们的银河系的中心，它似乎必须有更多的质量比被占问题上，我们观察。 这种缺失的质量可能会出现在我们的世界粒子的一些异国情调的品种，如懦夫（弱相互作用大规模的粒子）或axions（很轻的基本粒子），但缺少质量也可以与物质在一个影子世界存在的证据... ...而不是结束的额外维度的影子膜，另一种可能性是，他们是无限的，但高度弯曲的像一个马鞍。 丽莎兰德尔和拉曼Sundrum表明，这种曲率，而行为像第二个膜：膜的对象的引力影响将局限于一个小的膜邻里和不扩散到无穷大的额外维度。 的影子膜模型，引力场会的权利长途衰减来解释行星轨道和引力的实验室测量，但重力会更迅速地在短距离有所不同。 然而，本兰德尔Sundrum模型和影子膜模型之间的重要区别 。 在重力的作用下移动的机构，将产生引力波，曲率的涟漪，通过时空在光速旅行。 像光的电磁波，引力波携带能量，一个二进制脉冲星PSR1913 +16的意见已被证实的预测。 如果我们确实生活在一个时空膜的额外维度，膜的议案的机构所产生的引力波会旅行到其他尺寸。 如果有第二次的影子膜，引力波会反射回来，两国膜上被困 。 另一方面，如果有永远只有一个单一的膜和额外维度去兰德尔Sundrum模型，引力波可以完全逃避和远离我们的膜世界的能源。 这似乎违反物理学的基本原则之一：能量守恒定律。 能源的总量保持不变 。 然而，它似乎是一种侵犯，不仅是因为我们正在发生的事情的看法是限制的膜。天使可以看到额外维度会知道的能量是一样的，只是更多的传播出去 。“
虽然Randall的声明，基本上霍金说，非常大的额外维，是可能的，并不会违反已知的物理学定律。 事实上，它们的存在可能有助于解释一些比较大的befuddling问题仍然未科学，如缺少大规模。 因此，科学，存在着一种无形的精神境界，让潜在的天使，天使的精神机构可以由这个额外维度的东西，这种无形的境界。
物理学的分支称为这是亚原子粒子（即小于一个原子）量子力学的交易。 量子力学得到了很好的建立，通过科学实验。 与弦理论，量子力学是一个实际的实验领域。 它是在量子物理学中，我们发现了海森堡测不准原理：
在量子物理学，海森堡测不准原理，对某些物理性质，化学性质，如位置和动量，不能既被称为任意精度。 也就是说，更精确的一个属性是已知的，正是其他的都可以称为 。 同时与任何程度的准确性或确定性的微观粒子的位置和速度是无法衡量 。 这不是一个有关研究人员的能力来衡量系统的特定数量的限制陈述，而对系统本身的性质，因此，它表达了对宇宙的财产。
这基本上意味着，在亚原子水平，电子，夸克，光子等，似乎是一个随机性的基本原则。 颗粒去，他们似乎想要去的地方。 粒子几乎似乎他们在做什么选择。 但是，这些选择的总体格局，形成了一个统计可计算的概率。
人们可能仍希望地问：“它是如何工作？ 法律背后的机制是什么？“没有找到任何机械背后的规律 。 没有人可以“解释”比我们刚才解释说：“”没有人会给你任何情况有更深入的代表性。 我们有一个更基本的机制，从这些结果可以推断，没有想法。
我们想强调的一个非常重要的区别，经典和量子力学之间的，我们一直在谈论的概率是一个电子将在一个给定的情况下到达。 我们已经在我们的实验安排（甚至在最好的之一）暗示，这将是无法预测会发生什么 。 我们只能预测的可能性 ，这将意味着，如果这是真的，物理学试图预测在一定的情况下究竟会发生什么的问题上。 没错！ 物理学已经放弃了，我们不知道如何预测会发生什么，在给定的情况下，我们相信，这是不可能的，唯一可以预见的是不同的事件的概率。 ，我们必须承认，这在我们的本质的认识的早期理想的裁员。 这可能是一种倒退，但没有人找到了一种方法，以避免它 。
没有人想出了这个难题的出路 。 因此，在目前的时间，我们必须限制自己的计算概率 。 我们说：“在目前的时间，”但我们怀疑，它是将与我们永远也不可能击败难题，这是双向性真的是非常强烈 。

那么，为什么在宇宙中最微小的部分规模，有这一切的随机性？ 科学为什么放弃了精确的可预测性，并接受该规则的不确定性和偶然性的宇宙中最基本和最根本的积木的微观域？ 概率为什么只能被称为？
随着量子力学的到来，我们已经认识到事件不能完全准确的预测，但总是有一定程度的不确定性。 如果一个人喜欢， 可以归因于随机性神的干预，但它是一个很奇怪的一种干预：没有证据，这是朝 着任何目的。 事实上，如果是的话，它会定义不随机。 在近代，我们有效地去除上面的第三种可能性，重新确定科学的目标：我们的目标是制定一套法律，使我们能够预测事件的不确定性原理的限制，最多只能到。
总是存在的不确定性或偶然性的元素，这会影响物质的行为，在一个小规模的根本途径。 爱因斯坦几乎单枪匹马负责广义相对论，他在量子力学的发展起到了的重要组成部分。 他对此事的感受，总结出一语中的“上帝不掷骰子。”但是，所有证据表明，上帝是一个根深蒂固的赌徒，在一切可能的场合，他抛出的骰子。
省16时33 我们可能会抛出的骰子，但耶和华决定了他们是如何下降的 。
Some Christians who are Scientists speak on this very issue:
John Byl has a PhD in Astronomy, is the author of the book “God and Cosmos: A Christian View of Time, Space, and the Universe”, and is Professor of Mathematics and Head of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Trinity Western University.
“ WG Pollard and, more recently, Nancey Murphy advocate that the apparently random events at the quantum level are all specific, intentional acts of God. God's action at this level is limited in that
(1) He respects the integrity of the entities with which He co-operates (eg, He doesn't change the electron's mass arbitrarily) and
(2) He restricts His action to produce a world that, for all we can tell, is orderly and law-like.
God is the hidden variable. Murphy asserts that this position is not only theologically preferable to indeterminism, but has the further advantage of consistency with the principle of sufficient reason. Of course, if God is directly responsible for quantum events this entails that these are therefore predictable by God. Hence we are left with a deterministic universe, at least at the quantum level.”
“God's sovereignty rules out the possibility of agents acting independently of Him. In particular, quantum mechanics does not imply ontological indeterminism , given that determinist interpretations of quantum mechanics are possible, that non-physical secondary causes cannot be ruled out and that God is the primary cause for all events.”
-John Byl PhD, “Indeterminacy, Divine action and Human Freedom”
William Pollard PhD, is a Nuclear Physicist and Episcopal Priest, with a PhD in Physics and Honorary doctorates in science, divinity, law, and humane letters. He is the author of “Chance and Providence: God's Action in a World Governed by Scientific Law”. The entire book is on God operating, instead of “chance”, in quantum mechanics.
“In the next chapter I will begin the presentation for your consideration of a quite different approach to this problem which seems to me to offer an entirely adequate solution for it. Under it, as we shall attempt to show, there can emerge again in all of its ancient power the fullness of the Biblical response to the living God who is ever active in the whole of His creation sustaining, providing, judging, and redeeming all things, both in heaven and in earth, in accordance with the mysterious and hidden purposes of His might will. At the same time, however, this is accomplished in such a way that the essential integrity and unity of science, both as it is now and as in principle it may become, is fully preserved.”
“To Einstein's famous question expressing his abhorrence of quantum mechanics, “Does God throw dice?” the Judeo-Christian answer is not, as so many have wrongly supposed, a denial, but a very positive affirmative. For only in a world in which the laws of nature govern events in accordance with the casting of dice can a Biblical view of a world whose history is responsive to God's will prevail.”
-William Pollard PhD, “Chance and Providence: God's Action in a World Governed by Scientific Law”, pg. 35, pg. 97
Nancey Murphy PhD, Theologian, is Professor of Christian Philosophy at the Fuller Theological Seminary. She also serves as an editorial advisor for Theology and Science, Theology Today, and Christianity Today. She is the author of “Divine Action In The Natural Order”.
“The second strategy for giving an account of the locus of divine action explores quantum physics and seeks to give an account of God's action throughout the natural and human world by means of action at the quantum level (either alone or in conjunction with top-down action). My proposal is motivated theologically. If God is immanent in and acting in all creatures, then necessarily God is acting at the quantum level. Emphasis on this fact has the advantage of sidestepping the problem of interventionism: the laws of quantum mechanics are only statistical and therefore not subject to violation. If, as most interpreters conclude, events at this level are genuinely indeterminate, then there need be no competition between divine action and physical causation. It is possible from a theistic perspective to interpret current physics as saying that the natural world is intrinsically incomplete and open to divine action at its most basic level .”
-Nancey Murphy PhD, Dive Action In The Natural Order, pg. 131
In other words, God is in control and constantly interacting with the world at a quantum level. Where scientists see randomness and probabilities, they are seeing God determine how the dice fall, all the time, in quantum mechanics. The Bible may also present an argument of God controlling the “quantum dice” in Col 1:16-17, referring to Jesus Christ,
“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. ”
The word here for “consist” is “synistemi” (4921) and it means, “to consist of or be composed of, to cohere, put together, hold together or band together”.
According to subatomic physics, it is the quantum force particles of bosons, and gluons that hold together atoms, and particles like photons and electrons that hold together different atoms. As such, this verse in the Bible could be referring to, that it is by God's control over the “quantum dice” that makes these particles we are composed of to hold together. As such, by His actions all things hold together or “by Him all things consist”.
Assuming it is true that God does allow randomness at a quantum level of physics, but also constantly controls the outcome of that randomness, besides “upholding all things”, like the universe, “by the word of His power” (Heb 1:3), is there another possible reason for God creating the universe to be this way? Could it relate to miracles, signs and wonders? This could very well be the case.
Not only does quantum physics allow for existing particles that we can observe in experiment to act in random ways, but it also allows for particles and antiparticles (antimatter) to pop in and out of existence, seemingly randomly. These particles usually only exist for a very short time, and are called “virtual particles”.
“Down at the very tiniest length scale and trillions of times smaller than atoms, is what is known as the Planck scale where the concept of length loses its meaning and quantum uncertainty rules. At this level all known laws of physics break down and even space and time become nebulous concepts. Any and all conceivable distortions of spacetime will be popping in and out of existence in a random and chaotic dance which is going on all the time everywhere in the universe. Terms such as “quantum fluctuations” and the “quantum foam” which are used to describe this chaotic activity certainly do not do it justice.”
-Jim Al-Khalili PhD, Black Holes, Wormholes, and Time Machines, pg. 207
PhD in Theoretical Nuclear Physics, theoretical physicist at the University of Surrey
The existence of these seemingly random particles does not violate the laws of physics, especially the Law of Conservation of Energy:
“Where did all these particles come from? The answer is that relativity and quantum mechanics allow matter to be created out of energy in the form of particle/antiparticle pairs. And where did the energy come from to create this matter? The answer is that it was borrowed from the gravitational energy of the universe. The universe has an enormous debt of negative gravitational energy, which exactly balances the positive energy of the matter.”
-Stephen Hawking, PhD, Black Holes and Baby Universes, Pg. 97
Virtual particles have been shown, through experiments, to exist, as seen in the Lamb shift and the Casimir Effect.
“These particles are called virtual because, unlike “real” particles, they cannot be observed directly with a particle detector. Their indirect effects can nonetheless be measured, and their existence has been confirmed by a small shift (the “Lamb shift”) they produce in the spectrum of light from excited hydrogen atoms.”
-Stephen Hawking PhD, Black Holes and Baby Universes, Pg 107
Regarding the Casimir Effect,
“As we saw in Chapter 7, even what we think of as “empty” space is filled with pairs of virtual particles and antiparticles that appear together, move apart, and come back together and annihilate each other. Now, suppose one has two metal plates a short distance apart. The plates will act like mirrors for the virtual photons or particles of light. In fact they will form a cavity between them, a bit like an organ pipe that will resonate only at certain notes. This means that virtual photons can occur in the space between the plates only if their wavelengths (the distance between the crest of one wave and the next) fit a whole number of times into the gap between the plates. If the width of a cavity is a whole number of wavelengths plus a fraction of a wavelength, then after some reflections backward and forward between the plates, the crests of one wave with coincide with the troughs of another and the waves will cancel out.
Because the virtual photons between the plates can have only the resonant wavelengths, there will be slightly fewer of them than in the region outside the plates where virtual photons can have any wavelength. Thus there will be slightly fewer virtual photons hitting the inside surfaces of the plates than the outside surfaces. One would therefore expect a force on the plates, pushing them toward each other . This force has actually been detected and has the predicted value. Thus we have experimental evidence that virtual particles exist and have real effects.”
-Stephen Hawking PhD, The Illustrated Brief History of Time, pgs. 204-206
Virtual particles can include all types of particles, including photons, electrons, gluons, bosons, and quarks. According to physicists, under certain conditions in the universe, virtual particles can exist for longer periods of time and therefore become “real” particles. This particular example relates to conditions of space near a black hole, but in principle this shows that science does generally allow for the possibility of virtual particles popping into existence and becoming real particles.
“We can understand this in the following way: what we think of as “empty” space cannot be completely empty because that would mean that all the fields, such as the gravitational and electromagnetic fields, would have to be exactly zero. However, the value of a field and its rate of change with time are like the position and velocity of a particle: the uncertainty principle implies that the more accurately one knows one of these quantities, the less accurately one can know the other. So in empty space the field cannot be fixed at exactly zero, because then it would have both a precise value (zero) and a precise rate of change (also zero). There must be a certain minimum amount of uncertainty, or quantum fluctuations, in the value of the field. One can think of these fluctuations as pairs of particle of light or gravity that appear together at some time, move apart, and then come together again and annihilate each other. These particles are virtual particles like carry the gravitational force of the sun: unlike real particles, they cannot be observed directly with a particle detector. However, their indirect effects, such as small changes in the electron orbits in atoms, can be measured and agree with the theoretical predictions to a remarkable degree of accuracy. The uncertainty principle also predicts that there will be similar virtual pairs of matter particles, such as electrons or quarks . In this case, however, one member of the pair will be a particle, and the other an antiparticle (the antiparticles of light and gravity are the same as the particles).
Because energy cannot be created out of nothing, one of the partners in a particle/antiparticle pair will have positive energy, and the other partner negative energy. The one with negative energy is condemned to be a short-lived virtual particle because real particles always have positive energy in normal situations. It must therefore seek out its partner and annihilate with it. However, a real particle close to a massive body has less energy than if it were far away, because it would take energy to lift it far away against the gravitational attraction of the body. Normally, the energy of the particle is still positive, but the gravitational field inside a black hole is so strong that even a real particle can have negative energy there. It is therefore possible, if a black hole is present, for the virtual particle with negative energy to fall into the black hole and become a real particle or antiparticle . In this case it no longer has to annihilate with its partner. Its forsaken partner may fall into the black hole as well. Or, having positive energy, it might also escape from the vicinity of the black hole as a real particle or antiparticle . To an observer at a distance, it will appear to have been emitted from the black hole.”
-Stephen Hawking PhD, The Illustrated Brief History of Time, Pgs. 134-137
According to science it is possible that physical quantum particles can randomly pop into existence seemingly out of nowhere. If God is controlling the “quantum dice”, then this means God could cause these subatomic quantum particles to come into existence out of nowhere. This does not contradict the laws of physics in any way. Rather the laws of physics and modern science make clear that subatomic quantum particles popping into existence from out of nowhere is the normal state of the universe, which science has confirmed. And it is entirely possible for this randomness to be controlled by God controlling the “quantum dice”; and the quantum randomness seen has no explanation. Metaphorically speaking, this is a huge hole in the wall of science, which allows for the hand of God to come through into the physical universe, without in any way contradicting science or the known laws of physics. This shows that science actually allows for miracles and the miraculous done by God, without it in any way conflicting with Science or Modern Physics.
Modern Physics teaches that elementary particles, of all kinds, can and do randomly pop in and out of existence. This includes photons, which are particles of light. This also includes gravitons, which are theoretical and theoretically instrumental in gravity, as well as gluons, bosons and other force carrying particles.
Some force carrying particles are what hold quarks together to form neutrons and protons, and other force particles hold together atoms. All of these particles can pop into existence out of nowhere, seemingly randomly, the universe allows for this, and the universe was created by God intentionally to be the way it is.
What are quarks and electrons? They are the particles that are the building blocks of atoms.
Different types of atoms make up all of the elements of matter, as seen in the periodic table of the elements.
Atoms are the building blocks of all the matter we see, and our bodies are made of atoms.
So assuming God, who is omnipotent, one way or another controlled the randomness of the quantum world… then this means that God could choose to have a large number of quarks, gluons, electrons, etc. pop into existence very quickly, and assemble into atoms. God could also do this in such a way that many atoms were formed, and would assemble into much larger objects, even objects large enough that we could see them.
This might include things like oil and grain popping into existence out of nowhere:
1 Kings 17:8-16
And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee. So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand. And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse : and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die. And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth. And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah .
God provided for 3 years oil and grain, though the land was in a drought with famine. This oil and grain appeared seemingly out of thin air. But another way to put it might be that it appeared out of “seemingly random quantum foam”. And there are many miracles, signs, and wonders in the Bible, done by God, which are similar to this, such as Jesus Christ feeding the multitudes of thousands from a couple fish and a few loaves of bread.
Also, there are miraculous healings mentioned many times in the Bible. According to science, our bodies are made up of molecules of atoms, which are made from quarks and electrons and such. Consider the cases of sight being restored to the blind, the healing of the disfigured hand, the healing of lepers, and the healing of all manner of sicknesses; miracles done by Jesus Christ. Control over the “quantum dice” would be one way to explain how sick flesh was instantaneously changed into healthy flesh.
And so this is one way to describe, in modern physics concepts, how God does miracles, signs, and wonders. Though God does do them, whether control of the “quantum dice” of quantum physics is truly and specifically how, or not.
But the Bible also says that Holy angels, and Fallen angels, also work miracles, signs and wonders. (Acts 2:22, 5:12, 2 Peter 2:11, Heb 2:4, Matt 24:24, 2 Thes 2:9, Rev 13:2, 14, 16:14) So it could be an accurate description to say that how fallen angels also do miracles, signs, and wonders is because they too somehow have control over the “quantum dice”, though definitely on a more limited scale than God does.
The Bible teaches that God is everywhere in the universe, and there is nowhere that He is not. Whereas fallen angels have a set, limited, location for their spirit body, and are only in one place at a time, much like mankind. Under this line of reasoning, God has power, and “quantum power” over everywhere in the universe, but fallen angels only have power or “quantum power” in their immediate location. Also, God has power over the fallen angels' spirit bodies themselves, as their bodies are part of the creation, whereas fallen angels have no such power over God.
It does make some analogous sense that all angels would have powers like God, but limited, for the Bible several times in the Old Testament calls angels the “sons of God”. (Gen 6, Job 1:6, Job 2:1, Psalm 29:1, 89:6)
It may be that the extra-dimensionality of angels is what would make possible them having limited control over the “quantum dice” in their immediate location.
“Today, however, physicists are following a different trail-the one leading to superstring theory. Unlike previous proposals, it has survived every blistering mathematical challenge ever hurled at it. Not surprisingly, the theory is a radical-some might say crazy-departure from the past, being based on tiny strings vibrating in 10-dimensional space-time… In superstring theory, the subatomic particles we see in nature are nothing more than different resonances of the vibrating superstrings, in the same way that different musical notes emanate from the different modes of vibration of a violin string.”
-Michio Kaku PhD, “Into the Eleventh Dimension”, author of Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey through the 10th Dimension, Oxford University Press.
According to String Theory, particles in the 4-dimenional space-time we observe, are the result of vibrations of 1 dimensional strings that exist in an additional 6-7 dimensions, in the scientific sense of the word which (comes to10-11 dimensions total).
As such, speaking generally according to science in principle, it is possible that the extra-dimensionality of angels would allow for their altering of particles in our 4 dimensional world, on the subatomic quantum level. As such, their extra-dimensionality, in the spiritual realm, may be tied directly to their ability to work “miracles, signs, and wonders”, possibly through being able to determine how the “quantum dice” fall (on a limited scale in their immediate locality).
To illustrate, imagine that sitting on a table, is a cup. This cup has 3 spatial dimensions, and as the second pass, it moves through the 4 th dimension of time. Now, in the exact same location as the cup, would be 6-7 invisible dimensions that you can't see. And that is because these invisible 6-7 dimensions intersect the 4 dimensions we know at every point. These 6-7 dimensions are most definitely not somewhere else, but are in the same place we are, but invisible. Now, if these 6-7 extra dimensions correspond to the invisible spiritual realm that the Bible teaches, then an angel who has a spirit body would have an invisible spirit body comprised of the stuff of these 6-7 extra dimensions. And such an invisible angel could choose to effect the 6-7 extra dimensions where the cup is located so as to knock the cup over.
In other words, fallen angels have spirit bodies in the invisible spiritual realm. If the spiritual realm is composed of these extra 6-7 dimensions, then the spirit bodies of the fallen angels are composed of the spiritual realm, these extra 6-7 dimensions. Just as the invisible spiritual realm is all around us, so also could be these 6-7 extra dimensions. According to String Theory (just a theory) what we observe as an effect in our 3 spatial dimensions is caused by what happens in the 6-7 invisible extra dimensions. This means that an extra-dimensional angel could use their extra-dimensional spirit body in the 6-7 extra dimensions, to have the effect of changing things in the physical 3 dimensions we perceive. And in this, fallen angels would also have limited control over how the “quantum dice” fall, but only in a very limited location where they are present. As the invisible realm is all around us (or these extra dimensions would be also) a fallen angel can only effect changes in the immediate locality around them, in the location of their spirit body.
And so this shows how Modern Physics also allows for angels or fallen angels to work miracles (in a limited locality) along the same lines as how Modern Physics allows for God to work miracles. And so angels can also work miracles and do the miraculous, without violating and laws of Modern Physics or science. Rather, Modern Physics and Science totally allows for the existence of angels, their spirit bodies, the invisible spiritual realm, and the miraculous powers of angels as described in the Bible.
When it comes to Holy angels or fallen angels, the Bible describes that they can cause dreams and Visions, as well as causing the physically miraculous or miracles.
In the case of fallen angels, they cause False Visions, which can seem entirely physically real to a victim, and also dreams. Beyond this fallen angels can cause physical injury, and other sorts of physical manifestations, like objects moving, or recording film being altered, etc. These physical manifestations would be considered as false signs, false miracles, and false wonders, Biblically speaking.
I think that fallen angels being able to control (in their immediate locality) how the “quantum dice” fall, would work as a way to explain Physical manfestations very easily, both with visible angels materializing, or seeing the physical effects of invisible angels, including the physical aspects of Visions.
Excepting time perception manipulation, I also think this “quantum dice” idea explains all varieties and aspects of Visions quite well, and also dreams. This is because the human brain also can experience the effects of a fallen angel being able to control the “quantum dice” (in a limited localized way).
“The human brain, however, is also subject to the uncertainty principle. Thus, there is an element of the randomness associated with quantum mechanics in human behavior. But the energies involved in the brain are low, so quantum mechanical uncertainty is only a small effect.”
-Stephen Hawking PhD, Black Holes and Baby Universes, Pg. 133
Although the effect of quantum mechanical uncertainty in the brain is normally small, if fallen angels can determine how the “quantum dice” fall, then a fallen angel could make the effect quite large and noticeable.
Regarding False Visions, all of our physical senses are dependant on how our brain interprets them. By fallen angels generating electrical impulses in the brain, and such things like that, fallen angels would be able to make us “see” things that are not actually in front of our eyes, and “hear” things that are not there to make any sound, “feel” things that are not touching our bodies, “smell” things not before our noses, and “taste” things that are not on our tongues. These things would seem completely real to all of the bodily senses. And the electrical impulses that are truly transmitting information about reality around us could also be blocked out by fallen angels, under this same ability. Or actual reality could be partially blocked. And either way, false electrical signals in the brain generated by fallen angels, through manipulation of the “quantum dice”, could cause a person to experience a False Vision that seemed entirely physically real, but was not.
A person could be caused to perceive something completely illusionary, by a fallen angel manipulating that person's brain, which is a person's gateway to physical perception. As such, an illusion could seem completely physically real to all of the bodily senses, so much so as to be completely indistinguishable from reality to the person. This manipulation of the senses through manipulation of the brain is very likely what happens in False Vision (or in Holy angelic true Visions). Fallen angels could cause this to happen to more than one person at a time, strengthening the deception. And also under the same limited control over the “quantum dice”, fallen angels could cause physical manifestations, even running concurrently with a Vision which seems real. This sort of deception can be very powerful. Dreams could be explained much in the same way, but the same sort of thing occurring while the person is asleep and dreaming.
Besides all of this, there is one more thing which is miraculous that fallen angels do, which modern science allows for in a specific way. That is time perception manipulation.
Luke 4:5 “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.”
This case of Satan likely causing Jesus Christ to have a Vision, as mentioned in the Bible, was likely at least hours in less than 1 second.
What we are going to cover next is the time perception manipulation abilities of fallen angels, as seen in fallen angelic. I will first be covering the ways time perception manipulation can Not be explained under Modern Science, before I get into the way it can be explained, and Modern Physics allows for this.
As the brain of the victim of a False Vision is an integral part of how fallen angels carry out these Visions, and the memories of these attacks are stored in the brain, then the time perception manipulation aspect of these attacks must be explainable in a way that is consistent and not conflicting with the physical human brain and how it functions. And so any explanation of time perception manipulation must be limited and confined to explanations that do not conflict with the science of the human brain.
If we were to assume that time perception manipulation involves a compacting or compressing of extensive experiences into a short period of time, then this would require the human brain to handle in one second, somewhere from a hundred to a thousand times more information than the brain usually processes in one second. The brain processes information by the firing of neurons.
The only information I could find on neurons firing more rapidly than normal were studies on psychoactive drugs, heroin especially. As people attacked by fallen angels that experience time perception manipulation do not report experiencing a severe heroin-like sensation, this serves as experimental evidence that overly-rapid neuronic firing in the normal passage of time will not work to explain this time perception manipulation.
And as such, time perception manipulation does not involve a compacting or compressing of extensive experiences into a short period of time. The only other option is that these experiences actually do take as much time as subjectively perceived by the person having a fallen angelic Vision, though objective time passage for the rest of the world is much shorter.
A major example for this may be seen in the theory of general relativity. According to relativity, no matter what speed a person moves, time is perceived to pass at the same rate. However, less time will comparatively pass for an accelerated person than for a (relatively) stationary person. Yet either person will feel time passing at the same rate. It could be argued from a theological standpoint that God designed the human brain to need a consistent flow of actual time in order to function correctly, and designed a universe in which time passage would remain consistent, no matter to what speed a human might accelerate.
Because the person's brain is involved in the process of a Vision, yet their body does not go anywhere, many theoretical physics concepts dealing with time would not work to explain how the brain can experience more time while the body experiences less time.
Could general relativity, and time dilation explain how this works? Relativistic Time Dilation would not work, because it would require the body to feel acceleration (or its gravitational equivalent) in comparison to the brain, at over 99% the speed of light. This speed would be necessary to produce a 100 or 1000 seconds to 1 second ratio. This is not what is reported by witnesses of the person under attack's body, that see it does not go anywhere, nor the Biblical account that during Visions people do not go anywhere. So this cannot be the case, aside from the fact that such a thing would likely kill the person.
Could time travel gained by travel to the future, and then the past, explain this extra perceived time?
There is a type of theoretical wormhole, called a CTC, which was once theorized to be able to be used in this way, if many detailed criteria were met. But according to the current consensus of scientists, a CTC would not work for time travel to the future or past. This manner specifically would involve moving a brain to another location in 4d space-time, spending a real amount of time in that other location moving into the future, and then the brain traveling back in time to the same moment it left. Even if this could work without killing the person, a CTC wormhole still would not work for returning the brain to the past, as a CTC will not work for time travel to the past or future. A CTC wormhole will not work for time travel to the future and past for a brain, or a person, or even for a bowling ball, as they cannot be used for time travel in general.
Kip Thorne and Stephen Hawking had an ongoing debate for about 20 years over the subject of time travel into the past, using a CTC wormhole for time travel. The debate, based on their books, seems to have become settled, with Thorne (pro-possibility of time travel) coming to agree with Hawking (anti-possibility of time travel). Here are some highlights:
“Perhaps fortunately for our survival (and that of our mothers), it seems that the laws of physics do not allow such time travel. There seems to be a Chronology Protection Agency that makes the world safe for historians by preventing travel into the past. What seems to happen is that the effects of the uncertainty principle would cause there to be a large amount of radiation if one traveled into the past. This radiation would either warp space-time so much that it would not be possible to go back in time, or it would cause space-time to come to an end in a singularity like the big bang and the big crunch. Either way, our past would be safe from evil-minded persons. The Chronology Protection Hypothesis is supported by some recent calculations that I and other people have done. But the best evidence we have that time travel is not possible, and never will be, is that we have not been invaded by hordes of tourists from the future.”
-Stephen Hawking PhD, Black Holes and Baby Universes Pg. 154 (1994)
“Translating back the viewpoint of an observer at rest in the wormhole (the observer that Kim and I had relied on), Hawking's conjecture meant that the quantum gravity cutoff occurs 10^-95 second before the wormhole becomes a time machine, not 10^-43 second – and by then, according to our calculations, the vacuum fluctuational beam is strong enough, but just barely so, that it might indeed destroy the wormhole.”
-Kip S. Thorne PhD, Black Holes and Time Warps pg. 520 (1994)
“Hawking suspects that the growing beams of vacuum fluctuations is nature's way of enforcing chronology protection: Whenever one tries to make a time machine, and no matter what kind of device one uses in one's attempt (a wormhole, a spinning cylinder, a “cosmic string”, or whatever), just before one's device becomes a time machine, a beam of vacuum fluctuations will circulate through the device and destroy it. Hawking seems ready to bet heavily on this outcome. I am not willing to take the other side in such a bet. I do enjoy taking bets with Hawking, but only bets that I have a reasonable chance of winning. My strong gut feeling is that I would lose this one. My own calculations with Kim, and unpublished calculations that Eanna Flanagan (a student of mine) has done more recently, suggest to me that Hawking is likely to be right. Every time machine is likely to self-destruct (by means of circulating vacuum fluctuations) at the moment one tries to activate it.”
-Kip S. Thorne PhD, Black Holes and Time Warps pg. 521 (1994)
That was all from 1994, but a more recent quote from 2001 shows the issue has generally been settled:
“… Since the sum-over-histories calculations in these backgrounds are mathematically equivalent, one can conclude that the probability of these backgrounds goes to zero as they approach the warping needed for time loops. In other words, the probability of having sufficient warping for a time machine is zero. This supports what I have called the Chronology Protection Conjecture: that the laws of physics conspire to prevent time travel by macroscopic objects .
Although time loops are allowed by the sum over histories, the probabilities are extremely small. Based on the duality arguments I mentioned earlier, I estimate the probability that Kip Thorne could go back and kill his grandfather as less than one in ten with a trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion zeroes after it… As gambling men, Kip and I would bet on odds like that. The trouble is, we can't bet each other because we are now both on the same side .”
-Stephen Hawking PhD, The Universe in a Nutshell, pgs. 152-153 (2001)
One problem with time travel to the past between 2 locations in 4d space-time, is that, put simply, electromagnetic vacuum fluctuations would build up traveling in a loop from the present to the past, an infinite loop, and this would destroy any pathway from the present to the past. Stephen Hawking and Kip Thorne have said, CTC wormholes won't work for time travel.
As such, this is also not a possibility for time perception manipulation during a fallen angel attack, and it can summarily be concluded that peoples' brains do not go anywhere, or time travel. Time gained by traveling to the future, and then the past, is not allowed by physics in any way that would fit this time perception manipulation scenario seen in a fallen angelic Vision.
Biblically, this can be understood in that God created the universe so as to not allow time travel into the past. God controls both sides of the wormhole, and it is God who would make it so electromagnetic vacuum fluctuations in a loop from the wormhole mouths would destroy the wormhole before it could allow for any possible time travel.
God created time, as did Jesus Christ, as all things were created through Him.
Jesus Christ says in Rev 22:13, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
As such God has complete authority over time, and simply does not allow time travel to the past, or the future and then the past again.
None of these theories mentioned will work as an explanation for time perception manipulation caused by fallen angels during False Visions. So then what is going on?
The key verse is Luke 4:5, “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time .”
This verse does not describe time travel to the past. In contrast, this verse describes a long period of time passing during a second, or less than a second. Or another way to say this is that some extra time was perceptually gained by the person, more than the objective passage of time that God controls.This verse describes a long period of time passing during a second, or less than a second. Or another way to say this is that some extra time was perceptually gained by the person, more than the objective passage of time that God controls. So how would a fallen angel do this? How might this work?
The answer is that there is simply more to the dimension of time than we normally think of there being. I believe the Bible sets precedence for this concept, and this is how I would interpret Joshua's Long Day.
Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel.
I have read several theories to explain how this worked, but here is mine:
When God made the dimension of time, He made it to have both its flow in length, as we normally perceive, and draw as a line, but also to have a width to it, at right angles to its length. This width is normally small and tight like a string. But the width of time is like a stretchy material, like a rubber band, and so if God wants to, God can stretch out the width of time. The width of time is not affected by the 3 dimensions of space, or things like gravity or speed. The length of time is what is referred to in “space-time”, but the width of time exists unaffected by the things that would normally affect the length of time. In other words, the width of time works like a 2 nd dimension to time.
In Joshua's Long Day, it was the width of time that God stretched out, around the surface of the earth, and for the people on the earth. As such the people on earth experienced long time passage in the width of time, during what was a brief moment in the length of time.
I believe that according to physics this is possible. Although the concept of time having a 2 nd dimension of “width” seems to be in its infancy, there is some information to be found on it. The concept which parallels the “width” of time in modern theoretical physics is the concept of “imaginary time”:
“…One of these is that it is easier to do the sum if one deals with histories in what is called imaginary time rather than in ordinary, real time. Imaginary time is a difficult concept to grasp, and it is probably the one that has caused the greatest problems for the readers of my book. I have also been criticized fiercely by philosophers for using imaginary time. How can imaginary time have anything to do with the real universe?
I think these philosophers have not learned the lessons of history. It was once considered obvious that the earth was flat and that the sun went around the earth, yet since the time of Copernicus and Galileo, we have had to adjust to the idea that the earth is round and that it goes around the sun. Similarly, it was long obvious that time went for the same rate for every observer, but since Einstein, we have had to accept that time goes for at different rates for different observers. It also seemed obvious that the universe had a unique history, yet since the discovery of quantum mechanics, we have had to consider the universe as having every possible history. I want to suggest that the idea of imaginary time is something that we will also have to come to accept. It is an intellectual leap of the same order as believing that the world is round. I think that imaginary time will come to seem as natural as a round earth does now. There are not many Flat Earthers left in the educated world.”
-Stephen Hawking, Black Holes and Baby Universe, Pg. 81-82
Imaginary time is already a commonplace of science fiction. But it is more than science fiction or a mathematical trick. It is something that shapes the universe we live in.
-Stephen Hawking, Black Holes and Baby Universes, Pg. 83
Though it is a newer concept, it seems that imaginary time shapes the universe we live in. According to physics, what is it like?
“ You can think of ordinary, real time as a horizontal line, going from left to right. Early times are on the left, and late times are on the right. But you can also consider another direction of time, up and down the page. This is the so-called imaginary direction of time, at right angles to real time.
What is the point of introducing the concept of imaginary time? Why doesn't one just stick to the ordinary, real time that we understand? The reason is that, as noted earlier, matter and energy tend to make space-time curve in on itself. In the real time direction, this inevitably leads to singularities, places where space-time comes to an end. At the singularities, the equations of physics cannot be defined; thus one cannot predict what will happen. But the imaginary time direction is at right angles to real time. This means that it behaves in a similar way to the three directions that correspond to moving in space. The curvature of space-time caused by the matter in the universe can then lead to the three space directions and the imaginary time direction meeting up around the back. They would form a closed surface, like the surface of the earth. The space directions and imaginary time would form a space-time that was closed in on itself, without boundaries or edges. It wouldn't have any point that could be called a beginning or end, any more than the surface of the earth has a beginning or end. ”
-Stephen Hawking PhD, Black Holes and Baby Universes, Pg 82
“When one tried to unify gravity with quantum mechanics, one had to introduce the idea of “imaginary” time. Imaginary time is indistinguishable from directions in space. If one can go north, one can turn around and head south; equally, if one can go forward in imaginary time, one out to be able to turn round and go backward. This means that there can be no important difference between the forward and backward directions of imaginary time. On the other hand, when one looks at “real” time, there's a very big difference between the forward and backward directions, as we all know.”
-Stephen Hawking PhD, The Illustrated Brief History of Time, Pg 182
Imaginary time does not follow the forward direction of time, but instead forms a closed loop, in which there is no distinguishable forward or backward direction. This concept seems to parallel a stretchy width to time very well. A person experiencing imaginary time could gain time, going around a closed loop on the width of time, and ending up where they started. This would allow time to be gained, and experienced, by the person, without that person moving forward on the length of time, save a moment.
Could the science theory of Imaginary Time, or concept of a Width to Time, explain time perception manipulation in False Visions caused by fallen angels? … Yes.
As I have mentioned before, the Bible calls the angels the “sons of God” in several places, and this may relate to that angels can do many of the same things that God can do, but on a more limited and local basis.
For instance, God can perform miracles, signs and wonders, and Joshua's Long Day was one of these miraculous events. If this analogy holds true in this case, as it has in other cases, then it would make sense that fallen angels may also be able to stretch out the width of time on a limited local basis. The length of time God keeps all authority over, and fallen angels cannot travel it nor stretch it out. But during a Vision the additional time perceived would be from fallen angels stretching out the width of time (not the length of time).
In fallen angelic Vision experiences, this could be visualized as a fallen angel stretching out the width of time around the brain of the person under attack. The person's brain does Not leave their body, nor move forwards and backwards along the length of time. But the person does experience a gain of time from the period in which the width of time is stretched out around their brain. This allows for a gain of perceived passage of time in a Vision, and would allow for a couple minutes to or even a couple hours to be perceived to pass in a moment, or second.
This scenario would allow the brain to function at its normal speed, with decision making processes working as they normally do in the brain-mind-soul-spirit connection. This would also allow for memories to be stored in the brain according to the normal way the brain functions.
And so this is how I would explain fallen angels accomplish time perception manipulation during Visions. Modern Physics seems to somewhat allow for this, especially angels might be able to do this under the explanation of if they were extra-dimensional in 6-7 extra dimensions, they might be able to access a second dimension of time as well. In any case, this explanation of stretching the width of time around the brain of the person would work to explain time perception manipulation in Visions.
I find a good analogy to conceptualize an extra dimension or dimensions is the green code in the Matrix movie. Like the agents in the Matrix movie, fallen angels can alter the “code” (“quantum dice”) to change what is there and alter the green code inside a person's mind, to change what the person perceives, through their brain.
As such I often try to represent the aspects of Fallen angelic False Visions using Matrix imagery. I use a red sphere of code to represent the invisible extra-dimensional or spiritual realm fallen angel.
As an example, this is a close up of a fallen-angel-caused vision of an “alien abduction”. Remember that the entire vision, all 3 aliens, and the setting, are all caused by 1 fallen angel. In this example, the red ball below contains a person standing in a room with 3 aliens, near a table, in a defensive posture against the aliens. That is how the person having this Vision experiences themself to be, and it seems real to them, though a Vision.
What this represents is that because of a fallen angel, the neurons in the person's brain are firing in such as way that their perceptions have been altered. As the person perceives their surroundings through their brain, which is the hub and gateway to all the physical senses, the true green reality has been blocked out either fully or partially, and the person perceives what is going on in the red sphere, which is the fallen angel attacking. Their brain being able to send signals of sensing the green reality around them has been blocked, and instead the deceptive red signals of the fallen angel is what is getting through to their brain. In the most extreme case, this can mean the person may perceived being touched, when they are not, smell things, see things, etc. which seem entirely physically real, but are not. These physically sensations can be of things which are external to the body, or internal to the body (such as John's stomach ache in Revelation).
Because of brain-sensory-hacking abilities of fallen angels seen in False Visions, which can seem completely physical, it can be difficult to be able to tell with certainty that an actual purely physical manifestation of a fallen angel has occurred. Perhaps one example is that of fallen angels manifesting as UFOs (or whatever) in which pictures or video-recording have been taken. But keep in mind, when fallen angels do physically manifest, it may only be on a very limited and partial basis. One example is the audio-recordings made of ghosts, which if not hoaxes, only show a physical manifestation of the air vibrating so as to produce a recordable sound. That is all that could be proven to have occurred, at most, when nothing was taken along the lines of a picture. Even at that, it is possible that a physical manifestation in some cases was limited to only a direct altering of the film or recording device, whether pictures of ghosts or UFOs, video film, or audio recordings.
In conclusion, Science and Modern Physics seems to allow for the miraculous and miracles, whether caused by God, Holy angels or fallen angels.
For Christians, the Bible does establish the kinds of things that fallen angels can do. Taking the Bible as the authoritative Word of God, on faith, there really is no need to question that fallen angels have these abilities. The Bible says fallen angels have these abilities, both of whatever degree of physical effects, and causing False Visions and dreams. Bible-believing Christians should be able to accept that, whether modern science has caught up to the Truth of the Word of God, or not. But the hope with this piece is that you can understand that Science and the Bible do not conflict, as science actually allows for the miraculous to occur, as is recorded in the Bible and seen in miracles God still works today. And as also seen in the false signs and wonders that happen today, caused by fallen angels. Theories in Science are always changing, in a progressive accumulation of knowledge: they are not truth. Where the Bible and science seem to contradict, I believe the Bible should always be deferred to as Correct and Truth, no matter what science teaches or scientists say.
I've touched on topics involved with big bang theory, quantum mechanics, black holes, worm holes, extra dimensions, and string theory.
But I agree with what Russell Grigg, from CMI-Australia has to say on this:
“It has truly been said that Christians married in their thinking to today's science (eg big bang, ten dimensions, etc.) will be widowed tomorrow.”
-Russell M. Grigg M.Sc. (Hons.), Creationist Chemist and Missionary
That being said, I'm not entirely convinced about any of these theoretical science theories, and my intent here has not been to convince anyone of them. But rather, the aim of this was to use Modern Physics theories to show that science does not contradict or in any way disallow what that Bible teaches is true. The main point of doing this is to show that science does not preclude the existence of miracles of God and of holy angels, and also the false miraculous done by fallen angels. But rather I believe modern science actually completely allows for miracles, and for fallen angels, and their Biblically described abilities.
Rather than prove this seemingly supernatural activity is impossible, science actually completely allows for all of this to be possible… Modern physics shows that God created the universe to leave room for the miraculous to occur, without violating the laws of physics that He set up and maintains.
In any case, God is infinitely dimensional, without any question, having created all dimensions and everything in them, and as we know, God, in His three persons, can do anything and is All-powerful.
A fallen angel is more powerful than a human. But Jesus Christ is the Son of God, fully God and fully man, and also infinitely dimensional. So Jesus Christ is more powerful than any fallen angel, and even more powerful than all fallen angels combined. This is just another way of looking at what we already know, that Jesus Christ is seated at the right hand of God, with all power, above every other power, principality, authority, above every angel, Holy or fallen.
Angels can only be in one place at once, as we see in Daniel 10. And angels were created by God, as Genesis says,
“God created the heavens and the earth and all the host of them”.
But Jesus Christ is the fullness of the Godhead in human form, and Jesus Christ said “before Abraham was, I AM” , and John tells us “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made” , showing Jesus Christ's infinite dimensionality as the Son of God.
And the Bible tells us in Acts 4:10-12 ,
Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, [even] by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
And we see this in that supernatural harassment and attacks stop in the name and authority of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ can and does help those who call out to Him for His help, who have faith in Him and believe upon the power of His Name. So Jesus Christ is more powerful than fallen angels, in whatever form they take, no matter how powerful they seem, Jesus Christ is more powerful.
