The term “God’s Equation” was first used by Albert Einstein. In the 1930’s, he came up with the expression when he tried to explain the expanding of the universe. Later, he declined his theory, but recent science has shown that he was right. “The cover [of the album] asks the question ‘could God be a woman?'” Told guitarist and producer, Jørn Viggo Lofstad. “I guess the lyrics percept that maybe we are not alone in this universe.”
“You know, everything in life is really mathematics – numbers and equations – which sows everything together. God´s Equation is also a real equation that explains the formula that everything organic and alive in the universe are built upon. Really true – and it really makes you think, because when knowing that all living things has an equal factor – that specific formula – how can you say that it is all coincidental?” -Jørn Viggo said in an interview in 2008.
