I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
- Psalm 134:14
In Part I of this series, we examined the very large and the very small that make up the universe we live in. In Part II, we will continue with investigating the very small, as we will see how this relates to how our everyday realtiy is made.
In our previous article we basically shrank down to the size of a Planck length, the smallest unit of size that can physically be measured before things get fuzzy and complicated. At this size, information unfolds outward and is responsible for creating the atoms and their subatomic particles which make up all the matter we know in the universe.
Just how small is a Planck Length? To put things into perspective, if we were lay out a Planck Length one after the other and fit them into one inch, we would have approximately 1.6 x 10-35 (1,587,999,999,999,999,744,856,664,160,920,216) lined up end to end!
To put this into perspective, your average printer can fit 300 dots per inch (300 dpi). You can easliy see the difference in quality between the two. You get a higher picture resolution when you can fit more dots into the same space.
When we increase the DPI on our computer screens or on printed material, the quality of the image increases and looks more realistic.
Below, we find the average display sizes of screens that are used everyday. The higher the resolution, the better the picture quality and the experience we have when using the device. This really helps to make video games come "alive".
Every little dot on the screen is called a pixel. Each pixel is usually composed of 3 elements or sub-pixels, one for red, green and blue.
Below is a picture of an actual screen, magnified so you can see the actual grid of pixels and sub-pixels. On this screen, you can fit 4 pixels (12 sub-pixels) into a space of 1 millimeter.
When we put this into the perspective our world and the reality that surrounds us is divided up into millions and millions of "pixels" that give off light! TV screens, your computer desktop, the screen on your smartphone and electronic devices are all two dimensional, or flat. We can calculate the number of pixels on the screen by multiplying the horizontal pixels with the vertical pixels, so a VGA screen at 640 x 480 gives a resolution of 307,200 pixels. Simple math!
We live in a 3D world (from our perspective here on this Earth). Therefore our reality is made up of a grid, or a 3D matrix of Planck Lengths, stacked up in lenght, width AND height. So in a one-inch cube of space we can find approximately (1.6 x 10-35)3!! This is an unbelievably large number in a very small space! We will never possess the power to create a computer screen with that level of detail! Also because each of these Planck Lengths has a quantum signature, each "pixel" has properties that can transcend time and space! The information that is streamed from these "quantum pixels" is what you and everything else around you is made of, past, present and future! Every cell in your body is made up of these units! Similarly to a pixel, each quantum pixel gives off light (otherwise we would not be able to see anything!)
Does the Bible agree with the quantum science of the Planck Length? The answer is absolutely it does!
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
1 Thessalonians 5:5
Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
In Part III of this series, we will reveal more of what everything is made of and how it relates to your life in this world as told in the Bible and proven scientifically!
