What is the new meaning of Space and Time? How does quantum physics change our view of matter and universe?

Dear Brother / Sister,
2.2.8-The New Meaning of Space and Time
We thought space as the room we live in, time as an object showing hours and minutes and mass and time as unchangeable absolute beings. Centuries passed. We reached the 20th century. It was understood that time had a speed. We understood that as objects “accelerated”, their time “slowed down” and “expanded”. The speed of light was also the flow rate of time. When that speed was reached, the “flow of time” stopped.
Yes, the developments showed the “light barrier” in addition to the sound barrier. When the speed of light was reached, time would be matched and time would stop.
Then, we discovered that time changed not only in relation to speed but also “gravity force” (general relativity). According to the “General Relativity Theory”, time was added as a fourth dimension to the three dimensions of space (width, length, height). Depending on gravity, we could get old late or quickly.
When we look in the light of these facts, there are points where time works differently in matter-dependent dimensions, and we can see in the beyond matter dimension the fact that there is a peculiar time dimension in the grave, Gathering Place and Hell dimensions. When we wake up from a dream, that environment is perceived as a few seconds; similarly, there will be a different flow of life in the Intermediate Realm (Barzakh) and Paradise dimensions.
The “Big Bang” theory, which tells us that our universe emerged from a tiny core of creation from a single point, and the discoveries related to the continuous expansion of the universe indicate that the universe has a beginning and that it was created out of nothing. Behind the “perforated” space with the black holes, doors open to the “infinite spaces” at the point where physics ends. The fact that the process we call time, like matter, enters into another flow with the Black Hole gravity bring forward the realms of infinite and different dimensions.
The physical principles that were declared invariable and untouchable, and that were almost deified in the past caused the questions of philosophy and religion to come forward when those principles were turned upside down by black holes.
Why was the universe created and why is it destroyed? Is there a new creation after the expected Black Hole apocalypse? These issues are not only included in religious conversations today but are inevitably among the discussion topics of modern astronomy centers.
A star swallows itself, its own light, its own volume, place and time, assuming a totally different state. The stopping of time in the Black Holes or their assuming a different state brings the concept of eternity into mind and puts the infinite spaces or the hereafter and the realms there in our agenda.
In conclusion, the new developments in science increase the hopes that there will be a wider, brighter and more faithful future. For example, the quantum physicist Hans Peter Dürr expresses the ideas of many scientists. Professor Dürr emphasizes that our view on matter and the universe will change with quantum and he draws the boundaries of the expected world. He emphasizes that materialist and coarse perceptions will disappear and a spiritual, holistic, flexible understanding based on spiritual foundations will prevail. Dürr continues as follows:
“Quantum physics tells us that reality is based on great consciousness and that it has logical integrity and unity at the same time. Another thing that quantum physics says is that the world and the future will be bright. Quantum offers us a world full of possibilities. Those possibilities encourage us very much and make us optimistic. Why? We learn with quantum that the world is much larger and vaster than we know and think. We do not shape the world but the world shapes us. In fact, we cannot see the ways out of the numerous possibilities that the world offers us. Therefore, unfortunately, we see the world of financial competition, with which we believe the consumerist western culture guarantee our lives, as the only way out; thus, we confine ourselves in a narrow cell. Since we look at economic requirements and laws of nature as if they are unchangeable and one-dimensional - like silkworms -, we trap ourselves in the cocoon of obligations we have constructed. The unbelief and selfishness caused by materialistic understanding prevents us from recognizing blessings and abundance. Since we do not know how to ask by relying on God, we become deprived of not only do what we want but also the happiness and peace that we miss.”1
The fact that people of our age became addicted to matter made them close their eyes to the truth and gave rise to the idea that the source of everything is matter and energy. Consequently, artificial compulsions that science conflicted with religion emerged, and unfortunately, they used science for materialism and atheism. The neurophysiologist Roger Sperry (1913–1994), the Nobel Prize winner in medicine in 1980, draws attention to the fallacy of the thesis that religion conflicts with science and states the following in an interview:
“Science itself conflicts with materialism. Why would science and religion conflict? Essentially, this “conditioning that religion clashes with science” dates back to the times when materialist philosophy was accepted as science.”2
In conclusion, thanks to new discoveries based on metaphysics, we see that science is trying to get rid of the clutches of the ideology of materialism, which does not want to see the realities of metaphysics If this “struggle for independence” can be successful, the Divine “will”, which is definite by all experiences, will manifest itself. Then, the separation of religion and natural sciences will end; it will be understood that the universe and the Quran talk about the same realities.

Questions on Islam
- Question 57: Is it appropriate to mention religion in scientific studies? Science is based on experiment and religion is based on belief. Therefore, science and religion always contradict.
- How does materialism explain existence? What is nanotechnology?
- What do you say about the claim that Big Bang does not prove the creation from nonexistence?
- Will you give information about the experiment showing the Collapse of the Concept of Time? How is it possible to understand the reality of things?
- What kind of a realm appears when subatomic particles are viewed?
- Will you give information about the experiment showing that crimes decrease twenty-five percent with prayer?
- How can the reality of being in many places at the same time be understood? Will you give information about luminosity, which is a dimension of existence?
- How can people benefit from "dark energy" with the development of science? Does the Quran give any clues about this issue?
- What is neurotheology? How has the “human brain” become a new world project?
