Have you heard the term Quantum Physics? Perhaps just the mere mention of ‘quantum’, or worse, ‘physics’, has put you off reading any further on the subject. However, if you have more than a passing interest in spirituality, mysticism, conscious awareness, finding your life purpose, you need to read this article. I will attempt to keep it simple, particularly, since I have only a superficial understanding of the topic; but, I promise you will find the topic INTRIGUING. Quantum physics is the science that gives a lot of credence to spirituality!
Quantum Physics will give you a concrete foundation of how life forces affect your everyday interactions. By combining quantum physics with spirituality you will gain a more comprehensive picture of reality. For me, it has been a point where science and spirituality intersect. The explanation is somewhat lengthy but well worth the read. Let us begin our exploration of quantum physics.
One acceptable definition of Quantum Physics is the study of everything that makes up the universe, which includes both the manifested (physical) as well as the unmanifested (non physical). More simply, it is an in-depth study of the building blocks of the universe.
We learned in school, that everything in the physical world is made up of molecules. Quantum physics goes a few steps beyond the molecular structure. In fact the molecular element that we studied in school can be further broken down into atoms, then sub divided even further into sub-atomic particles. You may have heard that these sub-atomic particles are comprised of: photons, electrons, neutrons, and quarks.
So what are sub-atomic particles? Simply, a whirl of uniform energy. Anything and everything which exists in the entire universe, when broken down and analyzed into its purest and most basic form, is merely a vibrating frequency of energy. These energy forms exist throughout the whole universe and are composed of the same harmonious frequency. Previously, you may have thought that there are different forms of energy: The energy that powers your home, the energy required to get out of bed, and the energy that fuels your car. Although they may have been explained to you as “many energies”, at their core are all made up of ‘one energy’. Everything that exists: sound, colors, oxygen, the wind, thoughts, emotions, your car, your physical body, the stars, your ability to see, hear, smell, etc., exist precisely as a result of this very same one energy.
Quantum physicists study these sub-atomic particles. They have found that the behaviour of photons and neutrons are far from straightforward. These sub-atomic elements sometimes act like a hard solid entity, and at other times, behave as a wave form. How it appears, is determined by the human observer. Yes, you read correctly—we affect the outcome of these particles. Even more intriguing these particles do not act in isolation. In the quantum world, there is no such thing as separation, everything is interrelated. Once these atomic particles interact with one other they are forever connected, no matter how far apart they might be. They will always be affected collectively.
This realization in quantum physics suggests that in the sub-atomic world, as is in the spiritual world, there is no separation between our own consciousness and the world ‘out there’. As a result, the traditional belief that the objective scientist, observing and recording results stands apart from the experiment is a myth. The observer, the scientist, who is conducting an experiment, interacts and changes the behaviour of particles. The conclusion is that these subatomic particles responded in exact proportion to the thoughts and beliefs of the scientist when studying the phenomena. It is a fascinating concept, and well worth investigating further.
