Background

A description of the experience

Sir James Jeans – The Mysterious Universe

 Primitive cosmologies pictured a creator working in space and time, forging sun, moon and stars out of already existent raw material.  Modern scientific theory compels us to think of the creator as working outside time and space, which are part of his creation, just as the artist is outside his canvas.  It accords with the conjecture of Augustine ‘Non in tempore, sed cum tempore, finxit Deus mundum'
