Inward with Outward

It is said in Quantum Connectivity or Quantum Entanglement that physical phenomenon occur when pairs (or groups such as the human body) of particles are generated or interact in ways such that the quantum state of each member must subsequently be described relative to the other.  These last weeks I have understood and experienced exactly how this works.  The peace it brings is exciting and immeasurable.

The best way perhaps to understand Quantum Entanglement is to explain light (or photons) and how light operates.  The utter bedazzlement happens when things or particles are observed.  In other words, the state of a photon is one way when observed, and another when unobserved; mere observation changes the state of particles – and get this – no matter their distance apart.  Albert Einstein was so intrigued by this he called it “spooky action at a distance.”  In the labs of Quantum physicists, this is what takes place:

“When observed, Photon A takes on an up-spin state.  Entangled Photon B, though now far away, takes up a state relative to that of Photon A (in this case a down-spin state).  The transfer of state between Photon A and Photon B takes place at a speed of at least 10,000 times the speed of light, possibly even instantaneously, regardless of distance.”

This interaction doesn’t just happen between photons.  It happens between bodies or groups of electromagnetic particles, including living intelligent systems.  Think about it.  As a crude example but nonetheless true, humans behave differently when they are being observed versus when they are not.  The changed behavior still takes place when no verbal interaction exists.  The interaction, or entanglement, is still happening because they are connected by observation made possible by invisible subatomic particles.  This state of interaction is no different than the state between photons.  The common denominators are the electromagnetic particles that make up the entities.  What I find interesting is that when the interacting photons entangle, they take on a state of polarization, or opposite states.  What is mind-blowing is that the distance between the bodies is irrelevant.

Red-shouldered hawk - Spirit Totem

My red-shouldered hawk

My attempts to join quantum mechanics with classical mechanics, such as psychology, philosophy, or biology, I’m sure would make the experts of both fields chuckle.  Nevertheless, what I understand in these current quantum theories is the unlimited potential of information being passed, realized or unrealized, and irrelevant to perception or time.  It is a question of observation; the state of being highly aware.  And if I am acutely aware of the infinite systems surrounding me, intelligent purposeful systems, then the more I understand my place.  And as such, I am more realized and less unrealized.

Many weeks ago, before my move back to the Dallas area, I had a red-shouldered hawk perch itself on a branch just yards from me.  I know it knew I was near because it looked straight at me, almost starring, several times.  For at least two-minutes it moved its head scanning, then always back to me.  If you know about red-shouldered hawks, they are solitary birds and in the wild keep their safe distance from humans.  For some reason this hawk was not bothered by my proximity.  I found its behavior a little extraordinary but concluded the encounter as randomly weird and moved on.  A few days later the same thing happened and I couldn’t discount its second visit as random chance; not within the mechanics of quantum entanglement.  Yes, I know; a big leap perhaps.  But stay with me a minute.

I have a deep fondness and admiration for indigenous people and their connection to nature and Earth.  Though they might appear as “uncivilized” by Western standards, they have an understanding of their environment that goes much deeper than our vocabulary and descriptions.  Native American culture is inextricably connected with natural systems, Earth-systems, and their culture places high regard and meaning for hawk visits.  For example, a hawk brings or confirms heightened vision, power, energy, and a rebirth.  It also brings or confirms heightened strategy, intensity, attention, protection, teamwork, intelligence, focus, and intuition.  I have noticed an increase in all of these traits over the last two months, many of them confirmed by coworkers and friends without my solicitations.

One website explaining hawk visits and totems says the following, which I found further confirms what has happened in my life these last few months.  Bear with me please:

“Hawk totems are extraordinarily effective at protection. They are kind of like raptor-angels. They keep watch over those who hold an affinity for them (and vice versa). They tend to arrange energy in such a way so that danger or bad choices are either made known to their people, or are avoided altogether.

If the hawk is your totem, you are extremely perceptive. You see things others miss. Your vision goes beyond the physical too – you have a knack for seeing into the souls of people you deal with. You might call it a gift of intuition. You just have a sense, or an ‘aerial view’ into what is going on in the hearts of people. This is a great trait, but the downside to hawk people with this gift is that you tend to be way too forthcoming with your observations. Being naturally direct and candid personality types, hawk-people will make pointed statements about very sensitive issues that they’ve picked up by their powers of perception. Word of advice: Be delicate and diplomatic with your deductions.

Perhaps it is their unyielding honesty that makes hawk-people admirable partners. People who have hawk as their totem make outstanding mates, friends, co-workers, lovers, sister, brothers etc. They are loyal, honest and direct. Typically, you always know where you stand with a hawk-person, and others find this refreshing in a world of mind-gamers. Hawk-partners are also very protective, and will defend their compatriots to a fierce degree.

Those with the hawk as their totem are also visionaries. They look above the problem (another ‘aerial view’), for solutions. They are expert problem solvers because they aren’t part of the problem – they aren’t stuck in the issue. Rather, they rise above it, and in an elevated state they are able to see answers most might overlook.”

Now many would argue that it is simply a hawk’s instinct to fly and perch in certain ways.  Many would argue there are logical environmental or predatory reasons the hawk perched in that particular spot.  I would not disagree one bit.  There is a waterfall and pond just under the two different branches it sat on.  The habitat of Red-shouldered hawks is indeed forests and streams where their food can be found.  Our pond has several goldfish and one or two leopard frogs.  What naysayers can’t explain away is their known behavior around humans:  solitude.  In the wild they do not seek out the company of humans!  Yet my red-shouldered hawk did just that, for long moments, and did so on two separate occasions within days.  I don’t believe I can ignore that.  And with an adequate understanding of the interaction between quantum atomic systems and macro-systems (themselves made up of quantum systems) demands at least examining the encounters, not ignoring them.

This I know:  my powers of intuition and observation are definitely heightened and I am doing no illegal drugs.  This has been evidenced in several life-decisions and reactions, or interactions with people over these last couple of months.  What is amazing for me is to see and understand how it all operates and coexists.  What is more astonishing is watching it all work without words.  The exchange of information takes place not only on obvious levels such as verbal communication, but just as much on subatomic levels.  One only needs to become more observant, more aware of the exchange method, if you will.  In fact, I would wager that much much more information is available and exchanged than the obvious five senses.  Quantum Entanglement is increasingly showing this phenomenon to exist.  We crudely call it intuition.

I wonder if we are to eventually know that the inward and the outward are never really separated, ever, by any distance?

Connectivity — Part 2

Albert Einstein tried to join the fundamental forces of nature to the accepted laws of elemental particles under one simplified framework called the Unified Field.  Between the 1940’s and the 1970’s several scientific fields were successfully joined into one single model:  James Maxwell’s electromagnetism was translated into mathematical terms called quantum mechanics; Niels Bohr and Richard Feynman, along with Einstein consolidated the behavior of matter and energy on molecular, atomic and sub-atomic levels into Quantum Physics.  It was an age of great scientific discovery and newer challenges, primarily how to incorporate gravity into Quantum Mechanics and Physics.

Experiments in particle acceleration, i.e. breaking down atoms into smaller sub-atomic particles by literally crashing them together, revealed seemingly more unqualifyable mechanics.  Yet after decades of watching these experiments, physicists began seeing patterns or family groups of sub-atomic particles.  In our science classes we learned that elements were made up of various atomic combinations.  Within the individual atoms we learned they in turn were made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons.  By 1968 physicists discovered yet another generation of particles: the Quarks.  These sub-parts of protons and neutrons, six types  exactly, exist within the nuclei of atoms.  Therefore, with the spinning electrons, neutrinos (created via radioactivity), the six different quarks, and photons (the basic unit of light), scientists and physicists have found a “new” 4-Part Standard Model joining quantum mechanics, quantum physics, and yes, gravity.  Mr. Einstein would be at the edge of his seat, right?  Has the Unified Field finally moved from theory to Universal law?  Not so fast.

For the last half century our most powerful sub-atomic microscopes and particle accelerators found the quarks.  Now the questions are what hold these four basic components together?  How are things solid or grouped together?  What intelligence is behind the behavior of everything inside us, everything on our planet, our moon, our solar system and everything between and beyond?  Well, modern physicists are pretty sure it’s a unique energy organizer.  What can’t be explained yet is why there are vast weight-ranges, or mass from these seemingly infinite random forms of energy or intelligent interaction when protons and neutrons smash together.

Theoretical physicist Peter Higgs of Edinburgh University

Enter the Higgs Phenomena (Peter Higgs).  Higgs postulates that there is a sub/sub-atomic field throughout everything and touching everything.  When certain particles interact with this field, that interaction determines the mass of those particles, like our own bodies or other objects of form.  More specifically, Higgs predicts that a matching particle will produce a constant-connector or force carrier (like light given off from photons), termed the Higgs Boson.   Physicists think this Higgs Boson will be discovered and measured in a larger particle accelerator than previously constructed at Fermilab near Chicago, IL; which is 3.9 miles in circumference and capable of pushing particles of protons near the speed of light.  But their accelerator is neither long enough nor powerful enough to crack-open the Universe’s last common denominator.

Near Geneva, Switzerland the European Organization for Nuclear Research (known as CERN) has built just such a mega-mammoth. The Large Hadron Collider is 17 miles in circumference and in 2009 and 2010 accelerated protons almost four times faster than Fermilab, but is designed to smash particles over 7-times faster or with 7-trillion electron volts.  However, due to the enormous amounts of artificial energy required to push particles upwards to the speed of light and greater distances, the CERN’S LHC will not be ready for full-power colliding until 2014.

Detailed explanation of these future experiments and the plethora of scientific terms, theoretical experiments, laws, and their formulas goes beyond the scope of this already bloating two-part article.  However, if you get a wild hair to exercise your brain and expand your knowledge in quantum physics, I urge you to do so, beginning with a few of these mentioned theories and scientists.  But physicists now know that we must move beyond classical Empedoclesian and Newtonian laws of nature which have governed our understanding of matter, gravity, time and space for 2 or 3,000 centuries.  At the scale of the Unified Field (or Higgs Boson) there is no other choice but to go outside classical intuitions.

Here is where things get abstractly bizarre, at least for me.  Conceptually or theoretically this is where scientists are at today:  macroscopic bodies/entities are in multiple positions simultaneously (around thousands or more) on the nuclear scale of the Unified Field called Quantum Superposition.  They may also be connected over unbelievable distances called Entanglement.  And more intriguingly, they can be congealed into one quantum state (e.g. our own bodies) governed by one wave function called, interestingly enough:  Bose-Einstein Condensates, slightly touched on in Part 1 of this article with Dr. Emoto’s findings via waveforms.

Due to the depth of this subject and need to do it justice while not sacrificing meaning, I will continue this pseudo-brief topic in the third article:  Connectivity – Back to Physics Class.

Meanwhile, for an excellent in-depth elaboration of the topics and terms covered in these two articles/blogs, watch the 8-part series: Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman.  Another such resource is the two-part series:  What the Bleep Do We Know!?  Then the second:  What the Bleep Do We Know!?  Down the Rabbit Hole!
