If there are an infinite number of universes, then some of those will have identical copies of me. Which one, then, is the one true Bob? (Image credit: NASA, ESA and the HST Frontier Fields team (STScI), Acknowledgement: Judy Schmidt)Read More
In a recent blog post, Robert Krulwich made the following observation about nothing:
We are surrounded by Nothing. Everywhere we go, we have no idea what we're not seeing. We don't know what gravitational fields look like, what dark matter looks like, what quantum foam looks like, what [Willem] de Kooning's [erased] drawing looked like, but what the scientists and the artists are telling us, in their very different ways, is that if we lean in, and pay very close attention, sometimes what looks like Nothing is the best place to find the most interesting ... somethings.
Which makes me wonder. Saint Ignatius of Loyola talked about finding God in all things. But do we ever look for God in places where we think there is Nothing?
