A concept video set to Chris Tomlin’s song.
I love reading theoretical physics, particularly by non-theists, as their viewpoint would be without a theistic agenda (i.e. not propaganda). One of the most worshipful titles for a book that I could imagine would be “The Elegant Universe,” which is a book that the non-theist Brian Green wrote. Brian is kind of a “rock star” of modern physics, perhaps the heir apparent to Einstein and then Hawkins. This book spawned a NOVA special that walks you through the ideas of the book, and which served as much of the source material for this edit.
This product was originally created as a “click track video”, with some of the sound effects on the right channel to be sent to the house, and a click so that a live band could play in time to this song on the left channel, to be sent to the drummer’s in-ear monitors.
One of the real highlights for me was invoking the differential equations of the four electro-magnetic forces commonly known as Maxwell’s equations (1:38) to illuminate what God most certainly declared when he created light. As an engineer who studied those four equations for two semesters, having those beautiful statements presented in a sanctuary serve to unite God in his creation in a significant way.
I loved the opportunity to use the actual Apollo 8 Genesis reading during the bridge (2:25).
Another notable feature (3:12) is the rendering of the 6-dimensional Calabi Yau shape necessary for the math in String Theory, which I used to illustrate the idea of “Indescribable’. Since we live in three dimensions of space, a six dimensional object would certainly seem incomprehensible to us.
Our God, creator of our reality, with so many more dimensions than six, would be so much more so indescribable.
