The Quantum Physics of Collaboration

My brain hurts when I attempt to read (and understand) articles about the origin and operation of the universe, but I could not ignore this title:

The Big Idea: Why Relationships Are the Key to Existence: From subatomic particles to human beings, interaction is what shapes reality

Science and theology are two different disciplines that  are meant to be complimentary, not contradictory.

When they do clash it is because one discipline is threatened and becmes defensive of the other. For example, when science allows a philosophy to obscure objective investigation. True science is not about proving God exists nor declaring God does not exist. But, as I found in the following quote, science can revceal a correlation betwnee the creation and the Creator. 

  •  We understand reality better if we think of it in terms of interactions, not individuals. We, as individuals, exist thanks to the interactions we are involved in. This is why, in classic game theory, the winners in the long run are those who collaborate. Too often we foolishly measure success in terms of a single actor’s fortunes. This is both short-sighted and irrational. It misunderstands the true nature of reality, and is ultimately self-defeating. I believe, for example, that we make this mistake all the time in international politics. Prioritising individual countries, or groups of countries, over the common good, is a catastrophic error. It leads to the devastation of war and prevents us from addressing the true challenges that all of humankind – a node in nature’s network – faces as a whole. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2022/sep/05/the-big-idea-why-relationships-are-the-key-to-existence

#ItSeemsToMe....this scientific explanation explains a spiritual truth. The Creator God is a God of relationship; Father, Son, Spirit. The Creator God made humans in God's image; male and female in a lloving, reciprcating relationship. The Creator God designed human life around relationships: marriage, family, comunity, nations...but alo the Church. 

The Church is in relationship to our Cretor and Saviro and sustaining Spirit. The Church is a fellowshp of relaitonships. But the Church is also a unity of congregaitons.

Is it possible Quantum physics can help us more clearly comprehend how essental unity is to the life and mission of the Body of Christ?

"Winners in the long run are those who collaborate."

    “The Lord is . . . not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” 
              2 Peter 3:9 (NKJV)
     
    We have all been given the same mission that Jesus had.
     
    The Bible says, “[God] reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:18 NIV). Your mission is simply to pass on to others the same Good News about God’s love that somebody told you.
     
    But God doesn’t expect us to fulfill this mission on our own. He gives us other Christians to support us. In fact, evangelism is something we do as a partnership with the people in our congregation and in other churches. And you can even evangelize with your small group.
     
    God has given us a wonderful example of this in Luke 5:17-26. It’s the story of a group of friends who brought someone to Jesus. They couldn’t find a way to get into the house where Jesus was, so they lowered their paraplegic friend through a hole in the roof on a stretcher, right in the middle of everyone and in front of Jesus. Jesus was impressed by their faith and told the paralyzed man to get up and walk, and the man immediately did! The people were amazed.
     
    In this great story God gives us five principles for how you can partner with others to reach out to people who don’t know about Jesus and how you can fulfill your God-given mission in the world.
     
    The Principle of Compassion: This small group of friends cared enough for their helpless friend to do something about his pain. Mercy is not just a feeling. It is love in action.
     
    The Principle of Cooperation: God has assigned each of us a task in evangelism. Paul says, “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it” (1 Corinthians 3:6 NIV). In other words, you don’t have to do it all yourself, but you do have to do your part. And God will reward you for it.
     
    The Principle of Faith: Jesus says that the faith of the paraplegic’s friends leads to him being healed. Nobody is beyond the reach of God’s love. God specializes in doing the impossible. So don’t give up on people you care about. Have faith in what God can do in their lives.
     
    The Principle of Action: The friends had a plan, and they put it into action. The paralyzed man needed other people to bring him to Jesus because he couldn’t get there on his own. There will be times where you will need to step out in faith.
     
    The Principle of Persistence: The friends could have been discouraged when they couldn’t get into the door because of the crowd, but they didn’t give up. They showed determination. They said, “Whatever it takes, we’re going to bring our friend to Jesus.”
     
    Are you willing to go through the roof for a friend? Everybody needs to know Jesus! Without Jesus, people have no hope in eternity. The Christian who doesn’t care about the lost is really saying to the world, “I don’t care about you. You can go to Hell.” But the Bible says, “The Lord is . . . not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).
     
    Don’t get discouraged, and don’t give up. Keep praying, keep asking, keep inviting, and keep working to reach that person for Jesus.
     
    Helping people get into Heaven is the greatest act of mercy you can do for them.
