Four session series: Jan 6, Jan 20, Feb 3, Feb 17 2016
Cosmology and Kabbalah both struggle with paradox – simultaneous but contradictory perspectives in the structure of the universe. Both wrestle with mapping the ineffable – the infinite and infinitesimal and the very fabric of space and time. We’ll explore perspectives where the two disciplines seem to converge, or at least engage in dialogue.
There are interesting intersections between the ‘big bang’ and Kabbalistic portrayals of the creation of the space/time continuum. Surprising similarity can be found between the scientific and biblical mapping of relative time frames and the measurement of the age of the expanding universe. Both superstring theory and Kabbalah use a vibrational model for the fundamental particles of creation and count dimensions beyond the apparent.
Readings from God & the Big Bang, Daniel Matt; The Science of God, Gerald Schroeder; Immortality, Resurrection & the Age of the Universe, R Aryeh Kaplan.
