on

The universe is Deterministic

Universe: mathematically predictable movement of particles and waves

God gives the initial push and the universe evolves deterministically.

=

+

God’s initial push

(x2, v2)

(x1, v1)

(x3, v3)

So matter composed particles with well defined trajectory: position and velocity. Their motions are mediated by energyin the form of waves

Is this still true in the subatomic world ?

Uncertainty principle: The more accurately we know the position

velocity

of an object,

the more uncertain the

velocity

position

Wave-particle duality

Quantum Reality

Classical picture

The truth: Superposition of paths

Which “path” does it take?

Superposition of A and B if we don’t observe

Either A or if we observe

B but not both

B

B

A

Observers CREATE REALITY

Either alive or dead but not both if we observe

Schrodinger’s cat

It’s not seen in real world due to quantum decoherence (too many quantum objects each interfere in there own way)

Quantum theory: The Universe is non-deterministic

Is there a more profound “inherent cause” ?

In the realm of Buddhism:

Inherent Law of Cause and Effect

Transcends space and time: Simultaneity

Penetrate all previous and project to all future life existences

Consciousness may help create reality

Three Thousand Realms in a Single Moment of Mind

Question: wave or particle ? Classical theory

Ans :wave-particle duality (Quantum Theory)

Buddhism

The universe is like an ocean. Lives are water waves momentarily emerge and annihilate from this big ocean

- Josei Toda

After rippling through causal space time

Interconnectedness (classically): Butterfly effect

Interconnectedness: Quantum Entanglement

Pre condition : Spin_A + Spin_B = 0

A

B

if

Instantly

not bounded by causality (speed of light)

B

=

A

=

or if

Quantum reality is non-local

/ (transcends space-time)

Entanglement:

Quantum Entanglement : Besides up/down, similar correspondence of causally unconnected events appear if we measure left/right or other spin directions

Compassionate Universe

Present

Big bang

Quantum foam of space and time -Time undefined

Let’s say our universe is here

Quantum Cosmology

Universe Multiverse

Each universe has its own physical constants and geometry

Mature universe

Extincting universe

Baby universe

What Buddhism said ?

It label the law of universe as

= Devotion to the Mystic Law of the Lotus Sutra (cause and effect)

• which includes the following laws

• - inherent law of cause and effect

• oneness of self and environment

• eternity of Life

Every entities in this universe are profoundly linked

* oneness of self and environment

non-deterministic universe

(for most existing philosophical schools of interpretation)

Our consciousness and belief can affect the reality instantly

* Three thousand realms in a single moment of life

Quantized time and space
