Forget Big Bang~ Think Cosmic Consciousness!
Quantum Physics and Meta-Physics
There is a non-empirical part to physical reality & Vibration is originally a non-material phenomenon, existing as a potentiality
Vibration gives birth to the material world
Non-empirical reality= the realm of forms and potentiality
The basis of the material world is non-material (non-empirical)
has the Nature of an Indivisible Wholeness (non-local)= The ONE
We have been able to determine our separateness from the indivisible wholeness~ the ONE
The ONE is alive and aware of its processes
There is an element of consciousness active in the universe~a Cosmic Consciousness!
Therefore rather than the big bang theory, the universe existed prior to its expression just like a tree exists in its seed prior to its manifestation. There was no big-bang, per-se. The universe was a potentiality and then became manifest, just as simply as that.
Sri Aurobindo Saying
As Sri Aurobindo described it (McDermott 2001, 39): “The teaching of Sri Aurobindo starts from that of the ancient sages of India: that behind the appearances of the universe there is a reality of a being and consciousness, a self of all things, one and eternal. All beings are united in that one self and spirit but divided by a certain separativity of consciousness, an ignorance of their true self and reality in the mind, life, and body.”
