The Architecture of Heaven

If you visualise Heaven as a place where we can literally stand side-by-side with God and have conversations like how we’d have with another human being, then you are wrong.

Like many people, for the longest time, I have had that innocent notion that Heaven is palace made out of crystals above the clouds, with shiny gates and a glorious throne in the centre. Probably, it will be a cube since John wrote that he saw a cube in the book of revelations. And maybe, the best part of it, we will see God face-to-face, seated on the throne. Evangelicals will say that we will have an eternity to worship God and to learn about God. Pentecostals say that they have had visions of big shiny houses and mansions for those who have done good works on earth while people who have not done anything for God having normal-looking houses in heaven. Most cited Jesus’ words about Christ preparing a room in heaven and that heaven has many rooms. Such a notion of heaven distorts believers’ imagery of heaven into something that is… Earthly.

Now, how can anything earthly be heaven?

To understand Heaven, we must break down our understanding of reality and pierce into the realm of quantum physics. Building on the holographic universe theory is the notion that the universe that we live in is a projection of a 4D-quasicrystal. This 4D-quasicrystal is also a projection of a 8D crystal called the E8-lattice. In this theory by Quantum Gravity Research, the 3D reality that we live in is formed by tiny triangular shapes called the tetrahedra that fills up the entire universe [1]. According to this theory of reality, each tetrahedron only has a few specific states in which it can exists at any given moment. Any movement in one tetrahedron will affect the state of other tetrahedron in other parts of spaces, hence shaping the reality that we live in. If that is true, then the big question in quantum physics is to identify the entity behind the manipulation of each tetrahedron.

There are many things in quantum physics that looks into ways in which reality can be further broken down. However, for the purpose of understanding Heaven, I would like to focus in on the topic of consciousness.

In John Wheeler’s delayed-choice thought experiment [2], he asks: at which point a particle decide to be a particle or a wave. The answer? It’s dependent on how we measure it at the end of its journey. Say for example, a light was travelling from a distant quasar. If we were to measure it as a wave (interference), we will be able to pick it up. However, if we measure it to be a particle (in this case, light, or photon), then we will not pick up interference. Here, it appears that the beam of light, or wave (for the matter), ‘knew’ in advance whether it will be observed and how it will be observed and hence, manifesting itself to be in the form that the observer will measure it. In this thought experiment, it appears that there must be an observer to everything that ever existed.

Frank Wilczek of MIT said that, “I believe it will remain so until someone constructs, within the formalism of quantum mechanics, an ‘observer’, that is, a model entity whose states correspond to a recognisable caricature of conscious awareness.” [3]

This ‘observer’ do not need to be a human or an animal. However, this ‘observer’ needs to be conscious and transcendent. In order for this ‘observer’ to observe the entire universe into being, this ‘observer’ would need to be He’s own creator, abiding beyond the limits of time and space.

As Christians, does the idea of an all-knowing, all-encompassing, all-powerful, Creator, surface in your minds?

The Bible tells us that Heaven can be measured with human scales. John wrote that, “the angel measured the wall (of the new Jerusalem) using human measurement, and it was 144 cubits thick” (Revelations 21:17, NIV). In other words, heaven is in itself a place that is physically similar to the universe which we are currently living in. I do not want to limit it by saying it must be 3D / 4D. However, one thing is for certain, it can be measured with scales that we are used to on earth.

What about God? You may ask.

Here, in this realm, God appears in two forms. One, in the form of Jesus (Revelations 1:12-16). Another, in the form of this Conscious Observer (Revelations 21:23). In a sense, when the Light observes, it lights up every corner in Heaven.

God is light. And in Him, there is no darkness (1 John 1:5). He is the Conscious Observer that observes everything. His eyes are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good (Proverbs 15:3). This Conscious Observer searches us and sees us. He knew when we would sit down or stand up. He knew our thoughts from afar (Psalms 139). He is the Conscious Observer that even the Highest of Heavens cannot contain (2 Chronicles 6:18; 1 Kings 8:27).

How then did Moses talk to Him face to face in Exodus 33:11?

The thing is, He did not. Moses was just so close to the Conscious Observer that his entire being (remember the tetrahedra? His body was made of it too) begins to change and alter, reflecting the light of the Observer. As New Creations in Christ, we are able to come confidently to the throne of grace. We are able to come to God as a friend. We are able to be One with the Conscious Observer. We are able to abide in Him. And just like Moses, if we are close to Him as Moses was, we will be able to reflect His Light. But, this is only on the physical level.

In Heaven, there is a higher dimension — the spiritual dimension. A Union of some sort between the entities of humanity and the Divine (Ephesians 5:31-32). In this Union, We as Humanity, combined into a Collective Consciousness (do not confuse this with the theory by Carl Jung), become intertwined with the Conscious Observer in a marital union. In the Observer’s Vineyard, Humanity and the Divine makes love (Song of Solomon 7:12) and enjoy a Union unlike any that can ever be imagined in the physical realm.

Hence, in Heaven, humanity takes two forms. First, humanity takes Human Physical Form. The Form in which we are all risen from the dead from — the form in which Jesus Christ was the first fruit. We who were raised into Christ’s resurrection now takes a form that is similar to His. We will stand in the multitudes gathering before the Throne and the Lamb (Revelations 7:9). Second, humanity will take Spiritual Form where we will all be united into One entity where Christ is the head and we are the body. Under Christ’s leadership, humanity will learn to love the Conscious Observer who has called us into being.

Here, I conclude with a passage for us to ponder about heaven, earth, and everything there ever is.

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything He might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in him, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through His blood, shed on the cross.
— Colossians 1:15-20, NIV.
