Ask Deepak - What is the source of the universe?

Category:  Ask Deepak Videos

Deepak Chopra sits down with Menas Kafatos, a physicist and Chapman University professor, to discuss how the universe came into existence.
Does the material universe spring from a field of nothingness or rather from a field of possibility? According to quantum physics, what we think of a vast dark field of nothingness actually contains the potential for everything in the physical world. Is Menas, as a physicist, open to the idea that this field may in fact be consciousness? Watch and let us know your thoughts in the comments!

  • This no-thing-ness can bring forth every thing. So it must be a field of complementarity.... It is the breath of life. If we were only able to consciously let it all be by just breathing in and breathing out (like this field seems to do constantly) life comes round and about. Intention in the end is a human invention...

  • The Eternal Spirit. Is a conscious and intelligent being. The Spirit is able to think and feel. The Spirit has a personality. When I was born my parents gave me a name. When the Spirit came in contact with humans ,the humans gave the Spirit a name "God" When I want to move apart of my human form (the body)than a thought (logos)emerges in my mind and this thought (command)(logos)is the beginnig of the movement and it`s the complete movement. When God want to move apart of the universe form than a thought (logos) emerges in the Mind and this thought (command)(logos)is the beginning of the movement and it`s the complete movement. For humans it`s possible to move different parts (forms) simulthaneously. For God it`s also possible to move different parts (forms) of the universe (form) simulthaneously.God can move the moon (form) simulthaneously with the earth (form), or each other form God choose to move. Everything is controled in the mind. Het Griekse woord λόγος of logos is een woord met verschillende betekenis, maar wordt meestal als "woord" vertaald; andere betekenissen zijn onder meer `gedachte`, `taal`, `rede`, `principe`, `leerstelling` of `logica`. Binnen de filosofie, analytische filosofie en religie spelen nog speciale betekenissen en connotaties een rol. The Baptism of Jesus John 1:32 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

  • It is so refreshing to listen to an entirely rational conversation depicting age-old mystical truth. It seems to me that you are saying that the creator-preserver-destroyer state of the infinite (spaceless), eternal (timeless) Being brings forth out of "Real Nothing" all the false everything experiences of all beings and things. And that this happens NOW. Also terribly important, in what can appear to be a terrifyingly random world, that there IS the existence, within and beyond everything, of All-Knowingness, Infinite Intelligence. Now all that remains is to present the notion that each individual "soul" can seek, find, and approach That All-Knowing One in the form of Master, Beloved, Friend, Lord, etc.

  • Jer 23:16-18 (NIV) This is what the Lord Almighty says: "Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord. They keep saying to those who despise me, 'The Lord says: You will have peace.' And to all who follow the stubbornness of their hearts they say, 'No harm will come to you.' But which of them has stood in the council of the Lord to see or to hear his word? Who has listened and heard his word?" Jer 23:21-22 (NIV) "I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied. But if they had stood in my council, they would have proclaimed my words to my people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds." Jer 8:6-9 (NIV) "I have listened attentively, but they do not say what is right. No one repents of his wickedness, saying, 'What have I done?'.. My people do not know the requirements of the Lord. How can you say, 'We are wise...' Since they have rejected the word of the Lord, what kind of wisdom do they have?" Lam 2:14 (NIV) "The visions of your prophets were false and worthless; they did not expose your sin to ward off your captivity. The oracles they gave you were false and misleading." Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.

  • You are the observer and based on your knowledge of everything your brain will do all the calculations for you and give you a justified answer to the meaning of understanding things that you observe. So what might seem as science for one may actually seem as just plain normal activities taking place in daily life. Therefore under the blanket it is all the same complex simple instances happening.. only each one sees it differently based on how each one is tuned in to the frequencies of reality.

  • Nothing would exist without your existence.. so the very fact that you say this field is awareness or aware of itself could not have been so if it weren`t for your own awareness. So in a sense you are the driver and without you there would be nothing to drive and nothing could drive itself either. What do you think of that idea?

  • You know, it reemerges "almost" exactly as it was, with the exception of say, one particle in a billion being different, due to the uncertainty principle, and it`s that slight unnoticeable change that may be the source of time itself, and aging. The Quantum foam may be what is "sucking" time forward, while itself being transcendent of time.
