Ancient Jewish Text
The Universe is Expanding from a Single Point
James Scott Trimm
In a recent blog, I showed that the ancient Hebrews understood that space and time were part of a single continuum, with time being a fourth dimension. Not only did the ancient Hebrews know that space and time were both part of a single continuum, but they were also aware that the universe is expanding and began as a single point or "singularity".
In 1925 the American astronomer Edwin Hubble made the discovery that the universe is expanding. He proved that there is a direct relationship between the speeds of distant galaxies and their distances from Earth. This is now known as Hubble's Law.
In 1931 Georges Lemaître, a Belgian physicist and Roman Catholic priest suggested that this evident expansion of the universe, if projected back in time, indicated that in the past the universe itself was smaller, until at some finite time in the past all the mass of the universe was concentrated into a single point, a singularity.
Amazingly the Zohar, centuries earlier, described the creation of the universe as beginning from a single "primordial point" from which it "expanded":
Radiance! [zohar] Concealed of concealed struck its aura, which touched and did not touch this point. Then this beginning expanded, building itself a palace worthy of glorious praise. There it sowed seed to give birth, availing worlds.
God said, “Let there be light!” And there was light (Gen. 1:3). Here begins the discovery of hidden treasures: how the world was created in detail… This light is concealed mystery, an expansion expanding, bursting from the mysterious secret of the hidden supernal aura. First it burst, generating from its mystery a single concealed point, for Ein Sof burst out of its aura, revealing this point (yod). Once this yod expanded, what remained was found to be light (OR), from the mystery that concealed aura (AVIR). After the primordial point, yod, emerged from it into being, it manifested upon it, touching yet not touching. Expanding, it emerged: this is light (OR), light remaining from aura (AVIR),
