Who Moved My Cheese (Universe)?

06/01/2013

What’s going on with the universe?  Science says that it doesn’t exist, at least not the way that we think that we understand it and not how we have been led to believe.

A scientific quandary

Max Planck, the father of quantum theory, put it rather succinctly.  He stated that, “Matter does not exist.” Einstein echoed that sentiment when he said that, “Reality is merely an illusion, although a very persistent one.”  So, exactly when and how did this change in thinking come about and why do so few people seem to know about it?

Actually, science has known about this issue for well over a hundred years.  Unfortunately, even though they have their theories and formulae, they don’t exactly know what to make of it.  The Double-slit Experiment is a case in point, where photons will sometimes behave as particles and sometimes behave  as if they were a wave, all depending upon whether or not the proton was being observed during the experiment. Creation is looking to see if we’re watching it and then acts accordingly.  Weird stuff, right?

What does it all mean?

What science has shown is that in the microscopic quantum world the laws of classical physics do not apply.  Of course, another way of looking at it is that what we call classical physics exists only in the physical world.  In the quantum world, there are an infinite number of possibilities which collapse to one actuality (particle) in the physical world once there has been an observation.  Some of the more important conclusions that one can draw are as follows:

The fundamental reality is consciousness. Consciousness organizes quantum energy and belief translates the quantum energy into matter through thought and emotion.  Side note: And reality is information.

We exist in a virtual reality matrix where our brains organize information, which is an expression of a deeper order of existence, into three-dimensional holograms.  As Morpheus put it, “If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by the brain”.  Reality is changed by the observer and is therefore created by consciousness; thus, the expression that we are spiritual beings having a human experience rather than human beings having a spiritual experience.

Matter itself is 99.9% empty space and therefore could be said to be non-existent.  Side note: Empty space is not actually empty, nor for that matter are “black holes” holes.

The universe is intelligent and operates somewhat independently of mankind (e,g. DNA is self-organizing and self-directing).  One could say that instead of being the center of Creation, we are rather the observer of it.  While man’s role as a co-creator is crucial, the center of Creation is…well, Creation itself.  We are simply part of the universal consciousness (Cosmic Mind) and life is about that universal consciousness experiencing itself.

The laws of physics do not apply to us, except in the physical world.  Nor are we subject to man-made belief systems.  Therefore, concepts concerning evil and sin are not applicable; and death is simply an illusion.  All that there is – is consciousness, a circle of life with no beginning and no end.  We are all connected, part of the same infinite energy that exists beyond space time and at the same time interpenetrates the physical world.

Epilogue

The act of observing is, in reality, an act of creation.  That is, atoms appear in one place at one time if, and only if, they are observed (e.g. measured).  Since we, ourselves, are made up of atoms, we exist throughout creation until such time as we are observed.  The electrons which our bodies are composed of, among other things, exist in what I call a cloud of probabilities.  We are continuously blinking in and out of existence at all times. Sometimes, we are here and sometimes we are….Well, only God knows for sure the answer to that question.

  1. This whole line of thought fascinates me and I wish there was more discussion on the possibilities.
    For a while when the Matrix movies were current there was some discussion on the truth of reality and the possibility of other realities in some Yahoo group discussions, but it has since died off. Shame really, because it is mind stimulating thought.

      Thanks for visiting and commenting. The makers of the “the Matrix” were really clued in to what reality is. One of the messages was that man is a multi-dimensional being. Every person has the potential to tap into their higher dimensional self.

  2. My reaction is this: You know what you are saying, but I do not. Why? You have a lot of defining to do. Who is your audience? You need to write to them as people who know less about your topic than you do. Or do you prefer to talk only to those who are on an equal footing with you, those knowing all the jargon to be found in your essay. Operationally define all the insider terms you use. or just tell me, this blog is not for me and my type, the uninitiated in the special vocabulary. Maybe all those terms are crucial to us who have little notion of what they mean. For example, “The universe is intelligent.” I always thought that “intelligence” is an attribute of the human mind, or brain, as defined by an intelligence, paper-pencil test. I know that you are assuming too much, but you are also saying that I do not belong here reading what you have to say because I am not an intended part of your audience. If, on the other hand, I am a reader and you want to communicate your sense to me, then you will have to be more careful about your definition of specialized terms.

      John:

      Thank you for your comments. My audience is anyone who has an open mind. I don’t ask any one to believe. If anyone is interested in the topic, I’m sure that they can do their own research and arrive at their own truth. If you have any specific questions, I would be happy to try to answer them. Thanks again for visiting.

      • I must say this: I was very happy to find and read your essays. I have needed such instruction about religion. Your Interpretation is a valuable contribution to bolster my viewpoint, of a former Christian. You have those very interesting historical events that give me some concrete to stand on when I think about my approach.to “Christianity (of the “First Baptist” sort). My understanding of ancient peoples as I vicariously walk their pathways has helped me understand more about the less-than-concrete Biblical sense of ancient life. You have a very concrete contribution to offer for understanding religion and “God”. (John Deethardt)

        Thank you for your comments. The indigenous peoples of ancient times were much more in touch with the universe than modern man may ever be. My favorite quote is from the Australian aboriginals who have a proverb that goes like this: “We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love…and then we return home.” Religion could never understand or embrace such a concept, although their “heaven” is actually the “home” of the Australian aboriginals. The key word in this proverb is the word “return” which implies that man came from heaven/home in the first place. You may want to ponder for a brief moment the implications of what that means (as there is much more to the story). Good luck with your travels down the path less traveled. It’s a mind-bending trip. Come back any time.
