Continuing on, quantum physics is fairly difficult, at least for me, to get into. Another concept I have read about is biocentrism, which talks much about how things exist in a predetermined state until we observe them. The other part about biocentrism that is intriguing is that of consciousness – not consciousness in the sense that we just woke up necessarily. It is the most mysterious concept of all actually, consciousness. A lot of what I’m reading has begun to make sense, the more I read about it. Another concept that is important is that there is no such thing as nothing, as in there is always something. Take a look around you – I’m looking at a kitchen countertop made of granite. It’s coldish, hard… and then there’s a wooden table to my right, trees outside, clouds in the sky, the sky itself. Last night I could see the moon and stars. The air here, it smells so sweet it’s amazing. All those reflections are a result of my consciousness experiencing something. One of the points that’s made in the Biocentrism book is that many people say “well of course it’s real, I can see it, or feel it,” but in reality the protons and electrons that revolve around the nucleus of an atom are what give things their feeling of solidity due to the strength of the magnetic charge. These are difficult concepts, and I know that because it is taking me a while to wrap my head around them, and they are starting to make sense to me.
Let’s talk about something that we know exist – atoms. We know they exist because they can be observed. Like I said, there is no such thing as ‘nothing.’ Everything is composed of atoms and there are smaller items – neutrons, electrons etc., so that means that when you really get down to it, all there is is atoms, and the red book on my counter, the cell phone I just picked up, it’s all simply atoms in various structures. What has fallen into place with me is that it is our consciousness that creates these things that we see hear and feel, because in reality if we could see everything at the atomic level, it would all be exactly the same – there wouldn’t be colors, textures etc.
In quantum physics, something can exist in more than one place at the same time and distance is irrelevant. Another point that has come up in Biocentrism is that time doesn’t exist – we have constructed it in order to measure things. If you think about animals in fact, they don’t have a concept of time unless we teach it to them. All they know is the moment they are living in for the most part, or anticipation of the next few moments which are fairly immediate in themselves. Time is a construction that has caused a lot of people a lot of anguish which is an interesting point. It makes sense to me that what we think is the world, is really consciousness.
Another thing that is interesting to think about is the subject of death, because everything that we see does end up dying in one sense of the word or another, over time, which as we discussed, does not really exist. Just to go back to a scientific concept, energy cannot be destroyed. There is no doubt, in fact it is scientifically proven, that we at least have energy in our form. Some people believe that we are pure energy, which I do relate more with, because it does fit in more with what I have been finding makes more and more sense – biocentrism, quantum physics and so on. Now, going back to the quantum physics construct that things can exist in more than one place and can communicate over long distances, as if there were no distance. If we were traveling just below the speed of light and went to the sun from the earth, and it took us about a year to get there, and a year back, we would come back to 700 years later on earth, though we ourselves would be but 2 years older. Once we get near to the speed of light, what we know as time becomes not irrelevant, but totally different. It is not static as many of us believe, but changes with many factors.
The last thing I wanted to touch on is that on subatomic levels there is communications going on that has no relativity to distance. I think this is why that many of us have these odd experiences, like the one with my keys (Part I of this blog); we can’t really understand why they happened, and can’t even verify if they happened at all in the first place. It seems like something happened, but we just can’t quite tell if it did for certain. That’s possibly attributable to our consciousness, what it is, what things are actually made up etc. The studies currently being undertaken in the field of quantum physics are incredibly fascinating and I shall be keeping on top of the latest findings as much as possible, and do hope this blog inspires you to as well. Thank you.
