Quantum Pearls - An Introduction

What follows in the next 30 days or so is a series of questions taken from the book “Quantum Pearls” by Christopher M Jones. I accidentally ordered this book not realizing it was a Christian Devotional. I am unabashedly not a “Christian,” but that doesn’t mean there is nothing to learn from those that profess that particular faith. The questions pondered in each of the following entries are taken directly from the book but translated in a way to make them personally comprehensible to me. (Not all bible passages are comprehensible to me.) Naturally, I advise you to consider what follows unique to me, not necessarily useful to you or anyone else. When picking up a piece of writing that is so centrally associated with a strong religious belief, it raises the question: Is there a God? That’s not what this is about. I’m going to leave the answer to that to ChatGPT-5. What this is about is a brief consideration of what makes a worthwhile and ultimately satisfying life. Forgive me for being so bold. (I say forgive me for being bold because I’m prone to unnecessarily qualifications - that’s just my nature.)
