If you’re a regular Deepak Chopra reader and listener, you have probably come across the term “space time.” It may sound nonsensical – it’s either space or time, right? But in physics, “space time” is a real measure used to describe the four-dimensionality of the Universe. In this episode of “Ask Deepak” on The Chopra Well, Deepak Chopra sits down with Menas Kafatos, a physicist and professor at Chapman University, to discuss space time, matter, and the generative nature of the Universe.
As Deepak and Menas discuss, all matter in the physical universe springs from the curvature of space time, bending outward from a vast dark field where things like space and time have no relevance. This isn’t a field of nothingness, though, because it contains the potential for everything in our observable reality. In this way, as Deepak points out and Menas confirms, the Universe is more mind-like than machine-like. It doesn’t have a real “substance,” Menas says, yet creates everything that does.
What it comes down to, then, and what science helps us consider, is that there is an omnipotent, omnipresent force in the Universe that creates everything we see, touch, taste and experience. It is nonlocal and non-physical, yet everywhere present and infinitely powerful. Ladies and gentlemen, it sounds like we have ourselves a “God.”
