Max Planck: Quantum Theory and Consciousness

"All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter."

-- Max Planck --
(Theoretical physicist and founder of the Quantum Theory)

  2. Like me, Max Planck meant his quote to be both religious and spiritual. He did not possess an intrinsic hatred towards the idea that the universe originated from the mind of God. While Dr. Francis Collins proclaims that DNA is the language of God, I have been working on God's signature molecule since graduate school. He actually signed his created being! Unlike in Max Planck day, there are a lot more atheists on peer review panels today. ---Dr. Ray Turner
