Sir James Hopwood Jeans, English Physicist, Astronomer, and Mathmatician
Sir James Jeans was elected Fellow of Trinity College in October 1901, and taught at Cambridge, but went to Princeton University in 1904 as a professor of applied mathematics. He returned to Cambridge in 1910.
He made important contributions in many areas of physics, including quantum theory, the theory of radiation and stellar evolution. His analysis of rotating bodies led him to conclude that Pierre-Simon Laplace‘s theory that the solar system formed from a single cloud of gas was incorrect, proposing instead that the planets condensed from material drawn out of the sun by a hypothetical catastrophic near-collision with a passing star. Jeans, along with Arthur Eddington, is a founder of British cosmology.
After his study of the nature of reality from a physicist’s point of view, he concluded, “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.”[i]
His conclusion supports the fact that Our Universal Intelligence or Consciousness is the basis of reality. We are members of that intelligence that is eternal. As a result, we are eternal. We will never die.
