From a discussion group the other day: it seems that we now have a plausible account of the start of the universe. First is the initial "flaring forth" of primordial energy. Then, as it it expands, some parts collect into clumps of various sises, appearing as scattering. Some clump into arrangements that we label "galaxy", "stars", "planets".
But it occurred to me that this movement is not mechanical (in the sense of Newton's physics). The flaring was, like all things, is a quantum event, holding many possibilities for the next step. How does a definite outcome occur? Surly I am thinking in a wrong way? May be in my searching for the "how", I forget the "what is? That is, "what is the universe for itself?. "Yet I can only obtain through letting part of my being become part of the all.
