Quantum Theology: Spiritual Implications of the New Physics by Diarmuid O’Murchu

The group has not been asleep since the last posting but the scribe has been away – and missing the sessions!

This is an intriguing book written to attempt to re-interpret ‘theology’ in the light of the advances in our understanding of the physical world over the last century or so since Rutherford.   It is not an attempt to reduce theology to ‘quanta’!

For this first week we considered Appendix One which exposed 12 Principles of Quantum Theology. Is life, the universe and everything determined by the uncertainty identified by Heisenberg’s principle?  Is this uncertainty the source of ‘creativity’ at the material level (the universe) as well as in us?

The chapters in the book do not mirror the 12 principles set out in the Appendix – so more about them as we explore later this month.
