Quantum Physics Explained~
For most of us, quantum physics is interesting at best and beyond mysterious at worst. That’s because much information presented about it relies on jargon that most of us don’t understand. I am not gifted enough to understand what is happening in the double slit experiment, and as much as scientists use their jargon to explain what is happening, even they do not know why!
The inability of science to explain at this time what is happening is expressed in the 16 February 2017 BBC article on quantum physics and consciousness written by Philip Ball, who asks,
“If the way the world behaves depends on how – or if – we look at it, what can “reality” really mean?
Since quantum physics seems to be showing us that the observer influences the movement, behavior, or outcome of matter at the tiniest level, then I want to propose that it is probable that the results we get in our lives are influenced by us in accordance with how we observe–or feel about–our lives. This idea, that how we feel about our life influences our outcomes, is supported by the science of epigenetics as well as neuroscience.
Epigenetics and Consciousness
Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., who wrote the book on epigenetics, The Biology of Belief: unleashing the power of consciousness, matter and miracles, determined that our cells respond to the quality of our thoughts.
Knowing that if the quality of our thoughts are positive, meaning we expect and are aware of and alert to any positive support of what we want our outcomes to be in this world, we would naturally want to visualize ourselves engaged in that which supports and serves us. The logic is that if we believe in the probability of good results, we will probably observe good results.
This is why many self-help gurus, neuroscientists such as Mark Robert Waldman and Andrew Newberg, M.D., religious leaders and motivational writers and speakers such as Norman Vincent Peale, Wallace Waddles, Earl Nightingale and Napoleon Hill have said that what we put our attention on expands in our life. From what these leaders say, we should be motivated to focus on our positive beliefs and put our attention on our great ideas. Since nothing is created on Earth (beyond what was here when we arrived) without someone first thinking about it, attending to our positive ideas is how we can deliberately create added value in both our emotional and physical world.
Spirituality and Quantum Physics
If we consider energy to be of a spiritual nature, the mysticism behind quantum physics puts the science into the spiritual realm. No one can explain how matter and energy transform from one to the other. Not even Albert Einstein could explain how; he only explained that they do, and that they do so in equal, measurable amounts. The mystery of how a single photon can go through two slits at one time and create a seeming duplicate or hologram of itself is yet to be explained.
The important thing to recognize seems to be this:
With evidence from epigenetics and quantum physics–that our observation can change an outcome–it should be easy and natural to heed what neuroscientists discovered in regard to using positive thinking to create good life outcomes.
It seems this would go a long way in changing the human condition from one of struggle to personal and societal success. To read about my 3:1 Override technique I have developed and tested based on what neuroscientists know about positive thinking, read this article.
