The world we perceive is a fantastical construction, including ourselves. Nothing is solid, everything is energy. This is a fact and cannot be emphasised enough, repeat, NOTHING IS SOLID, EVERYTHING IS ENERGY.
At the level of the fundamental building blocks of the world, we are in the eerie realm of quantum physics. A realm that reveals the truth about our world in ways that challenge the existing framework of accepted knowledge.
Difficult and strange, it is not easily understood by most of us, but it's well worth grasping the basics as it will change your life in wondrous ways.
What we perceive as our physical material world is really not physical or material at all, far from it. This has been scientifically proven many times over the last century and is no longer controversial, but it's fair to say the relaying of the information to the public has been hesitant at best.
Nobel Prize winning physicist, Niels Bohr, made significant contributions to the understanding of atomic structure and quantum theory and had this to say;
"If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet. Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real." Niels Bohr
So prepare to have your mind blown.
At the turn of the nineteenth century, physicists started to explore the relationship between energy and the structure of matter. In doing so, the old understanding that a Newtonian mechanical Universe made out of physical building blocks obeying fixed rules, which was at the very heart of scientific knowledge, was shown to be incomplete and erroneous. Modern physicists began to make the controversial discoveries that proved everything in the Universe is made out of vibrating energy. All solid matter is an illusion.
Quantum physicists discovered that atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating, each one radiating its own unique energy signature. They also discovered that there is more space inside those atoms and in-between those atoms than there are volume of atoms. 99.9% more. Therefore there is 99.9% more space than physical matter in the known Universe. That space is not empty though, it is not as previously thought, a void or a vacuum. It is a plenum. Every tiny part of it contains enough energy to create a whole new Universe. Therefore space is now termed holo-fractal and the visible structures of the Universe are akin to a gigantic hologram.
If you observed the composition of an atom most of it looks like empty space. But beyond the minute electrons and protons visible with a microscope, there is an invisible part made up of potential energy that literally flickers in and out of existence depending on whether it is being observed or not. When observed it looks like an infinitesimal tornado, a vortex, spewing out infinitely small energy vortices which have been given names such as quarks and photons.
So all the atoms in the Universe contain mostly space and only a fraction of that space contains any physical particles. They are mostly composed of non physical invisible energy that we incredibly interpret through our senses as objects we can recognise.
Makes you think doesn't it?
"The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence." - Nikola Tesla
Our experience tells us that our reality is made up of physical material things and that our world is an independently existing objective one. The revelation that the Universe is not an assembly of physical parts, and instead arises from a holistic entanglement of immaterial energy that is simultaneously both wave and particle stems from the work of Albert Einstein, Max Planck and Werner Heisenberg, among others. Surprisingly there has been a reluctance in the academic community to accept these findings even to the point of ignoring them and shockingly continuing to teach the old disproved theories in schools.
What does it mean for us that our physical material reality isn’t really physical at all? What could be done with the knowledge that the process of conscious observation makes things happen, creates things? What marvellous opportunities could open up for each and every one of us? It looks like we each have the potential to create heaven, or hell, for ourselves. But if we are never educated about the nature of reality then it's all a bit hit and miss for us isn't it?
Could this public lack of understanding be an advantage to a few? Imagine if this knowledge is used by only a few? What could be done with it? Would that be a source of ultimate power? What unnatural catastrophic events would the harnessing of conscious energy on a large scale by persons, governments or industries with an unscrupulous agenda allow? Could wars, genocide, terrorism, economic crisis, rampant consumerism be made to manifest by manipulation of mass consciousness? How could that be done? How can certain thoughts be encouraged among many people all at once?
Consider; news media, advertising, social media, processed food products, pharmaceutical drugs.........
Imagine that whatever you think and feel you bring into existence.......
Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote:
"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."
Our feelings and thoughts are crucial to our experience of reality. When we are in a peaceful loving state inside, it impacts the external world around us and influences how others feel as well. This leads to a very different experience of reality for the person emitting those emotions and for those around them.
We know that when an atom changes its state, it is because it is absorbing or emitting electromagnetic frequencies. It has been proven that different states of emotion, perception and feelings result in the emission of different electromagnetic frequencies. At our subatomic level we are emitting a vibrational frequency that changes the manifestation of physical reality.
We are nebulous beings composed of energy and vibration, each radiating our own unique energy into an endless sea of energy. We are powerful creators dreaming up the world in which we exist. We can and should be using our curiosity, playfulness and wonder and making it beautiful. We are so so very much more than we perceive ourselves to be and it's time we unfurled our flowered wings.
