The Tarot of Physics: The Fool

Big Bang

Card Description

Thirteen billion years ago, the four fundamental forces of physics — electro­magnetism, strong force, weak force, and gravity — were evenly balanced. They might even have been unified. At the moment of the Big Bang, however, that symmetry was broken, and the multiverse we know began to form.

Suggested Interpretation

In a reading, the Big Bang card suggests that something new is about to spring into existence — apparently, from nothing. All of the elements of creation are already in place, however.

Dan Horn’s Meta Physics

We can see how the fundamental forces that make all of reality interact with each other in atoms – except for one, gravity. The effect of gravity works on a much larger scale, and is at the same time, much weaker.

Now that seems odd to me. Could it be that the true reality is that the four forces are all unified – and a distorted perception of reality (organized as it is) is the time-space existence we perceive?

Is the reality of a video game on the CD, or the projection its bits and bytes create on the viewscreen?

Number Symbolism

The shape of the numeral 0 illustrates a perfect balance between spirit and matter, and the coexistence of space and time.

  1. The actual cards are more peach than grey. They’re printed on paper that’s designed to look like parchment. (It’s a good look!)
