Introduction - Science & Research

“There is no matter as such.  All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together.  We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind.  This mind is the matrix of all matter.”

-Max Planck, Nobel Prize winner, the founder of Quantum Theory

Albert Einstein wrote in a letter to Max Born on December 4th, 1926 affirming his displeasure with the idea of quantum mechanics and this intelligent force which lay at the very core of their research “At any rate, I am convinced that He (God) does not play dice.”  This is also quoted as “God does not play dice with the world / universe”.

In reply to Einstein, Niels Bohr wrote “Who are you to tell God what to do?” also quoted as “Albert, don’t tell God what to do.”

What is it that all these great physicists are talking about?  What did they find?  Through this section I hope to bring you to an understanding - or rather lack thereof.  In quantum physics the act of understanding means that you actually have not understood at all!  Confused?  They are too.  Wave particle duality and quantum entanglement has baffled physicists since 1900 and although they still remain confused they are only now embarking on possible ways to harness this information and put it into applications.

A Little History to Open

Science as we define it today has been around since Newton in the 1600s however science has been widely known for tens of thousands of years. Sir Isaac Newton would have loved to have proven religious principles through science however he lived in a time when Galileo was tortured by the Inquisition, in Rome, for heresy for saying that the Sun lies motionless at the center of the universe. Newton however did step out and daringly used the falling apple to support the theory of the earth turning round creating gravity. For more than 200 years Newtons theories were the core of the scientific era and founded what we know as classical physics. This physics works very well for explaining large-scale visible things like apples falling from trees, planets orbits and also helped put man on the moon. However during the 20th century Newtons laws no longer could be applied as scientists delved deep into the world of the atom, the birth of stars, subatomic world or how particles behaved. A new science was developed: quantum physics.

The separate universe which Newtonian theory implied is being brought down. Regrettably you will not be hearing it on the news. If you are interested you will need to search it out for it yourselves. The last 90 years of research has brought about a new physics whose conclusion is inescapable: everything in our world is connected to everything else. This means that we are not limited by skin and hair with research showing that we can use this connected consciously to tap into the same power that drives the entire universe. Everything from searching for romance and healing our loved ones to the fulfillment of our deepest aspirations, we are integral part of all that we experience each day. The catch? Our power will lie dormant until we awaken it. We need to change the way we perceive the world and move away from our “modern” world which society has formed.

Quantum Weirdness (alias Quantum Physics)

Physics and mathematics intermingle and coexist. As new approaches to reality generate more tests and experiments the physicists and math geniuses continually find things which do not match the models. What do they do? They just create more equations and more theories. So they either fudge the data or create new equations to match their experimental results. Quantum physicist Richard Feynman called it “dippy hocus-pocus”. The mathematicians call it “renormalization”. If the results of the equation don’t balance out on both sides or the real life results don’t make sense, scientist just take one part and cancel out the other part. Eureka! I will attempt to outline the core of quantum weirdness in the section The Observer Effect, Particle Wave Duality and the Electron.

 

“If A is success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut” -Albert Einstein

“As far as the laws of mathematics refer to realist, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.” -Albert Einstein
