“God does not play dice with the universe.” ~ Albert Einstein
In a previous article, I discussed how the “we become what we attract” philosophy dates back thousands of years. What you tell yourself becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy through the power of “I” statements. And that most people don’t realize that they are constantly attracting exactly what they don’t want through negative statements like “I think I’m going to get sick” or “I’m too fat, too old, etc.”
New Age thought often associates self-empowerment with universal energies. Books like The Law of Attraction and The Secret are based on the philosophy that what you put in comes back to you. But to go beyond the idea of a new age, we need to delve into the metaphysics that can be explained through quantum physics.
Metaphysics is derived from the Greek word Meta meaning “beyond” or “after”, and physics related to the physical. Initially the meaning goes beyond the physical, today it includes theories and explanations of phenomena that are often not explained by the physical sciences. Metaphysics can include theories about the origins of the universe, consciousness, the purpose of life, universal laws, and karma. He can try to answer questions that the physical sciences cannot. Metaphysics attempts to explain a phenomenon that conventional science does not. Concepts such as psychic phenomena, telepathy, ESP, out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences, reincarnation and the spiritual dimension are usually dismissed by science through “lack of evidence”. However, quantum physics actually explains this metaphysical phenomenon.
The field of quantum physics began in the early 20th century. It is a set of principles that describe the behavior of subatomic particles. Quantum theory provides accurate descriptions of many previously unexplained phenomena such as black body radiation and stable electron orbits. In developing quantum theory, physicist Max Planck (1858-1947), who is considered the founder of quantum theory, suggested that energy waves can be described as consisting of small packets or quanta. Albert Einstein (1879-1955) further postulated that an electromagnetic wave like light is composed of particles called photons. This led to a theory of unity between subatomic particles and electromagnetic waves called wave-particle duality in which particles and waves are neither one nor the other, but have properties of both. Quantum mechanics has led to the development of the transistor, electron microscope, magnetic resonance imaging, lasers, and semiconductors.
One of the interesting discoveries of quantum physics is delocalization, the phenomenon that when two particles interact, they continue to influence each other and transmit information between them instantly, no matter how far apart they are. They can be separated by inches, feet, or millions of miles, and information is transmitted instantaneously, indicating instantaneous communication. This transmission of information is not bound by the laws of the physical universe, such as traveling at the speed of light (186,282.4 miles per second). This non-local transmission of information is believed to operate in an unseen reality, a reality that connects all physical events to the universe.
Using theories in quantum physics, we can explain how metaphysical principles such as energy healing, clairvoyance, and out-of-body consciousness work:
Light consists of electromagnetic energy that has properties of both particles and waves.
These subatomic particles can also transmit information and are not bound by properties of space or time.
Human thought/consciousness produces energy similar to that of light with the same properties; Consciousness is not constrained by space and time.
Consciousness/thought consists of energy that can affect matter near or far.
Science now explains how energy can leave the body and affect its surroundings, both near and far (energy particles are non-local). Quantum physics explains how energy is formed from matter and can leave an object, affecting the different layers of energy around it. Science now explains what sages, mystics, and religious leaders have proclaimed for thousands of years, that energy travels in
Waves and can affect the physical world. Our consciousness is the energy that can influence our life by attracting other energy to it. When we release negative energy outward through self-defeating thoughts and statements, that energy returns to us. As do the positive, uplifting energies that will bring back better health, happiness, and prosperity! It’s all in the flag!
Quantum physics also supports that our consciousness does not die when the physical body dies. Our consciousness is the energy that goes on when the body doesn’t. What is observed during near-death experiences and in past life regression (reincarnation) is explained by the “science” of quantum physics.
The science of quantum physics now explains that our consciousness is an energy that can influence our lives, as in New Age thought and that our consciousness is a universal energy that can transcend space, time, and dimensions as in the metaphysical principles of karma, reincarnation, psychic phenomenon, and communication with those universal energies. What you attract depends on science! What do you want to attract?
