Heart of Matter: Infinite Potential

“As we travel into the world of quantum physics, we enter a misty sea of infinite potential.”

Ilia Delio, The Not-Yet God: Carl Jung, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and the Relational Whole, Ch. 1


“A medida que viajamos al mundo de la física cuántica, nos introducimos en un mar brumoso con un potencial infinito.”

    Big, visibly complex things come from small invisible things, and owe their existence to them. Hence, the word “quantum’ refers to the smallest amount of anything that can be involved in an interaction, entity, or image — like a pixel. A pixel is so minute in size, it is to an atom what an atom is to the universe at large. Being unnoticed, and unnoticeably granular to the complexity of the naked human eye, it is by nature unseen by the very organ whose constituency, above all created things, allows it to come the closest to seeing as it sees, though with far less magnification and resolution. So that quanta (plural of quantum) are unavoidably overlooked, and therefore mostly taken for granted. Instead, the human eye turns its interests, desires, and affections toward the more complex and ponderable in the vast visual field of size and complexity. Thus, among humans, big things like size, number, and quantity usually take on greater value, exceeding that which goes into their making. In creation, and art, a literally perfect style should conceal itself so completely behind what it expresses, that it goes unnoticed. As with meekness and humility, such things are sacred by design. The whole of creation, and holy books, serve to remind us of same, lest we get carried away by mere size, number, complexity, popularity, and their appearances in persons, places, and things. The ego forgets whose throne it sits on, and temporarily occupies. No one likes a Goliath, who forgets whence, and thus abuses his size and power. This is why, at the last, we cheer for the Cinderella’s, come-from-behind dark horses, and black swans — Nazarenes all — despite what militates against them. Lest we forget, divinity is always found where least expected. Sight unseen, feel for, honor, and glorify it as such.
