Question to Radhanath Swami: I read about something called God particle, consciousness and its relations to quantum physics but couldn’t understand much. Will science help me to understand God better?
Radhanath Swami Answers: Let’s take an example. Thoughts, we can’t see them, touch them, hear them, taste them or see them, yet they are so powerful. Depression is based on thoughts, elation is based on thoughts. Love, we can see the manifestation of it but we can’t see love; love is an emotion. Similarly, we can see the symptom of consciousness in the form of life. We haven’t seen or met Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, etc. but we believe in them because we have met and heard people who have met them. Probably 90% of what we believe in life as truth is totally beyond our sense perception, something that has not experimentally been verified in a physical way.
Therefore whether through quantum mechanics or any other science if a person believes in God he will see God everywhere because God is there. But the actual connection to that divine spirit called God is a reality beyond our senses.
