Quantum Particles: Gauge Bosons

In Christ all things are held together (Colossians 1:17).  Since God is an intelligent and logical Being Who holds the universe together by His power, and since we are made in His image and have revelation from Him, it is possible for us to discover some of the logical patterns by which Christ holds His universe together.  There are four fundamental forces in nature, each of which is an expression of the mathematical way God’s mind upholds creation.  Each of these four forces is associated with quantum particles called gauge bosons.  These gauge bosons are the glue that holds matter together.  When we study these forces, we are learning something about the mind of God.

Quantum Particles: An Introduction

Quantum physics deals with how the universe behaves at very small scales – on the level of atoms and smaller.  And it’s weird: very weird.  Particles that are smaller than atoms do not behave in exactly the same way as the much larger objects to which we are accustomed.  This makes quantum physics one of the most intriguing areas of research, and one which declares the glory and majesty of the Lord.
