Scientists believe that space is something. Even between electrons, there is something. They call it dark matter and dark energy because it cannot be seen.
If you took away all that was visible from the universe, except you and you were able to spin around, what would you be spinning around in relation to? Well that would be space itself. It is said that your arms would still fly out if you spun around because of space itself.
I sometimes think of the universe as layers. What would happen if we went down to the smallest layer what would we find? God? If we went the other way and traveled to the edge of the universe and took a peek, what would we find? God? (I understand that God is invisible, so you wouldn’t literally see him). So perhaps the physical realm is but that which sits between the smallest and the biggest. A certain state that God holds with his Word.
Interestingly enough, The Planck Length describes the limits of the physical realm because if you draw a line from A to B and do so in half distance increments, then you would mathematically be able to travel forever in a straight line and never reach the end. How could that be?
And if you divide time or space and keep doing that would it also go forever? Apparently not. There is apparently a length that is so small it is indivisible. When you drill down to the smallest of things, the laws of the physical universe are no longer what you see, thus why Quantum Physics is so hard to understand. Is that an edge or a boundary to the universe if the universe is defined as being governed by physical laws.
Because you cannot keep dividing matter and still see matter forever, it stands to reason that there must exist something beyond that and that something would be everywhere.
Perhaps beyond this micro boundary and beyond the macro boundary is where God’s Spirit is. He is the beginning and the end. The smallest and the biggest. He is bigger than the universe and can dwell inside the smallest atom. He dwells in the universe by his spirit and is also outside the universe because even the universe cannot contain him.
Just ideas, and a possible way to see how creation is sustained by God. So unlike the view that God doesn’t exist because we cannot see him, or that God is the Universe itself, this can explain why we can’t see God and why he is not the the atom itself. It also explains how God can be in everything and yet not be everything, rather he can reside in all things as well as be beyond the Universe itself.
Maybe the macro and micro are is the place where God’s Spirit resides as he connects the two.
