Quantum Physics and the Light of Christ in the Biblical Creation Story

Modern cosmology reveals Genesis 1 as a metaphor for creation of the universe, and the dual, wave/particle personality of light—the “complementarity principle”—defines the spiritual and physical creations and provides a scientific basis for the “fall.” God’s observation (“God saw…”) was the trigger that manifested each “day’s” physical creation from the spiritual.” Adam’s “transgression” was partaking of the “fruit” of physical sensory experience via the “tree of knowledge of good and evil” (the nervous system and senses), manifesting the physical universe to his consciousness, which thereafter competes with consciousness of God, as symbolized by the commandment not to partake.
