My interest in bubbles was reignited again today after watching a CBS Sunday Morning segment on bubbles. Did you know that bubbles and only bubbles are what give rushing waters their sounds?
The babbling of a brook, the rushing of a river, the breaking of waves and the roar of a waterfall come from the pulse of sound made every time a bubble is formed, therefore the more bubbles formed, the more sound pulses generated and the greater the sound.
Our sweet Lord’s voice was described in Revelation as being like “the roar of many waters”, but maybe it can be more accurately described as being the combination of sound pulses generated as many bubbles are formed – as if He was speaking at the surface or intersection of two different substances, John residing in one substance, and our Lord speaking to him from the other substance.
And I heard a voice from heaven like the roar of many waters…
Last week I watched some documentaries about the universe and I must admit I love them! I saw one that reminded me of the fact that our universe is still expanding and is now expanding at a faster rate than it did just after it’s birth. I find this so interesting, amazing, strange and difficult to understand.
As I was watching a few days ago, I was thinking a lot about bubbles! Maybe our universe is a like a bubble, a little piece of something that is where it doesn’t belong.
Imagine a bubble rushing towards the water’s surface. As it rises, it expands, and as it expands it rises faster, causing it to expand even more and then rise even faster. I am not a fluid dynamics expert, but I think this is correct at a very high level.
Now imagine that our universe is this bubble rushing through a substance where it doesn’t belong, and maybe as it is approaching a surface the surrounding pressure is decreasing which would explain why our universe is expanding faster than before. If so… what do you think will happen when our bubble finally reaches the unknown surface? Will it BURST?
If so, then I hope when our bubble bursts we will finally find ourselves where we do belong, in the singularity (the point where a function takes an infinite value) of GOD!
