Corey Powell's riveting story explores how scientists try to explain more than the material universe. The initial idea was Einstein's 'fudge factor'. He called it his 'biggest blunder' and is known by scientists as the Greek letter Lambda. It was the first rigorous expression of this quest for something beyond the tangible. Cosmology, the attempt to explain our universe, its size, shape, beginning and end, has belonged to science for a century or so. And now it has reached a plateau, possibly its end point. There is some mopping up to be done understanding the nature of dark matter and dark energy. But dark matter and dark energy are now enshrined in scientific theory. Science has at last formulated a full-blown spiritual theory, a Church of Lambda. Powell contends that there is a God, the sum of the energies scattered through the universe. This god isn't so far from what Einstein called the 'Old One,' the strict Spinozan determinist who could not intervene in worldly affairs - but is inspiring and powerful. Corey Powell introduces readers to the god in the equations of modern cosmology, giving a fascinating insight into how the spiritual has guided cosmologists since Einstein.… (mehr)

Mauna Kea, a 13-thousand foot high peak in Hawaii, now stands as the spiritual center of the world, according to author Corey Powell. From the mountaintop, scientists position huge telescope mirrors to gather light from multi-billion year old stars, and their latest findings spur a “new step in the history of human spirituality,” which Powell calls sci-religion.

Albert Einstein's lifework and spiritual outlook make him “the founder and greatest prophet of sci-religion,” says Powell. Einstein “recognized the search for truth as an inherently spiritual endeavor... (with) common ground between the material and the mystical."

Powell describes how modern scientists, notably Saul Perlmutter and Brian Schmidt, find the universe expanding, rather than contracting from the pull of gravity (as previously thought). They account for the acceleration by the “stupendous discovery” of anti-gravity. This dark energy pervades the universe and it appears to be Einstein’s theorized cosmological constant. The universe looks full of empty space, but it actually seethes with potential energy and matter. Powell explains the interconnectedness of mass, matter, and energy revealed by quantum physics, and he explores the spiritual implications of the revelations. ( )
