“Shiva’s dance is a symbol of the unity and rhythm of existence. The unending dynamic process of creation and destruction is expressed in the energetic posture of the god. Shiva dances in a ring of fire that refers to the life-death process of the universe.”
“There is a striking resemblance between the equivalence of mass and energy symbolized by Shiva’s cosmic dance and the Western theory, first expounded by Einstein, which calculates the amount of energy contained in a subatomic particle by multiplying its mass by the square of the speed of light : E=mc2. ”
“Well before 700 BC. Hindu sages were chanting neti neti (not that, not that), denying the ultimate reality of an external world in which they saw little more than illusion, and searching instead for the eternal spark of Brahman in the soul within all beings.”
Richard Waterstone, India; Living Wisdom *1
“Science can be created only by those who are thoroughly imbued with the aspiration toward truth and understanding, this source of feeling, however, springs from the sphere of religion. The situation may be expressed by an image: science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”
Albert Einstein *2
About the First Quantum Sunday:
This website is about difficult truths and phenomenal solutions, solutions based in the marriage of science and faith that both Einstein and the ancient Rishis spoke of. In honor of this marriage, one which I believe holds all of the solutions for the planet and for mankind, Hundredth Hummingbird will offer, each Sunday, an example of quantum solutions.
I am very honored to present a You Tube series of What the Bleep Do We Know? as the very first entry for Quantum Sunday.
If you enjoy this viewing please honor the filmmakers by purchasing the DVD for your family and friends. The film has won numerous awards, has become one of the most popular documentaries of all time, and has spawned a massive six sided DVD boxed set Down the Rabbit Hole further exploring the phenomenon of the quantum world as it applies to our world and the other way around. The film has also generated study groups, a newsletter, and a companion book, available throughout 30 countries and all available at:
Happy Quantum Sunday!
