Dr. Michael Laitman To Change the World – Change Man

Does an Atom Contain All the Information in the Universe?

There is a principle in the wisdom of Kabbalah that the individual and general are equal. It means that the tiniest individual particle contains the information of the whole system of which it is a part.
This principle of similarity of individual and general extends from us all emerging from a single small point.
In the creation of our universe, we underwent a process of cascading through upper worlds into our world, and our world or universe was also formed out of a tiny point.
Such a principle extends to every level of existence: a tiny point descends, and then with the help of the matter that forms in this point, it becomes a large and expansive system. The next successive level then deploys the whole system again from its final lowest point. This process continues through five such descents, called “five worlds” in the wisdom of Kabbalah.
Accordingly, our universe emerged from a small point by the force of the so-called Big Bang. There was no massive explosion at this juncture, but rather a tiny spark of spiritual energy broke through into the material level from the highest spiritual level. Since the spark was spiritual, i.e., hosting an eternal bestowing force, then this spark was sufficient to create all matter, energy and information that fills our universe today.
