Deus ex machina – part 1

Empowerment Coaching Blog-Deus ex machina-Part-1

It all started veeery long ago. So long ago that none of the fairy tales beginning with the words “a long time ago …” can describe this story. Back then, there was no one who could write, tell, or listen to this fairy tale.

There were no “seven rivers” and no “seven mountains” for a new story to happen. There were no forests or rivers. There was no Earth. There was no sky or air. There was no Sun, no Moon, no single planet, no star. Moreover — there was no space or time.

All of this happened about 13.7 billion human years ago. Was there time then, was there anything? If so, WHAT was it? A very good question!

How do we know that about 13.7 billion human years ago something really important happened? Here is the story, which for me is a reason for extraordinary amazement over the nature of our Universe and Life.

Over 200 years ago, one of the most influential philosophers of all time, Immanuel Kant, wrote:

“Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and reverence as we reflect on it more often and persistently: the starry sky above me and the moral law within me.”

Attempts to understand the origin and the nature of the Universe have happened in almost all religions throughout the history of mankind. On the other hand, every scientist dreams of discoveries that will shake the current paradigm of knowledge. For such discovery, after all, you may get the Nobel Prize, right? So, must science and faith be opposing worlds?
