The concept of spacetime tells us that both space and time are the same. One typical example is that the age of the universe is the edge of the universe. As it takes time for light to travel from one place to another, what we see at present, strictly speaking, should be what happened in … Continue reading Let There Be Light
What is God's will? What should we do to understand it? Is there such a thing as God's will on earth and in heaven?

Seeking what we hypothetically call "God's will" as something … Continue reading What Wilt Thou Have Me To Do?

These efforts, however, can never be beyond our cognitive, epistemological, and ontological limitations. The more we get smarter, the science and technology could advance to develop these areas. Or, the more our consciousness unfolds, perhaps the more profound and the broader … Continue reading Categorical Imperative
Einstein's theory of relativity tells us that we live in a sort of spacetime continuum. The cosmos we recognize is not only a spatial entity but also a time sequence that contains itself. We can easily understand such "reality" with a few thought experiments. For example, the sunlight we see right now is not the … Continue reading Minkowski’s Spacetime
