Determinism, Speed of Light Take Back Seat

It is called Quantum Entanglement and it has just been proven more true, repeatable time and again with the same identical results (so far), and so must exist as a law, if not near-law, in Quantum Mechanics. The implications of this being law are massive!

Why massive? Let me first share what experiment just took place further proving the truth of quantum entanglement, or what Albert Einstein called “spooky action at a distance,” and what was done and what it means, then I will discuss the possible implications, particularly for ethics and morals.

Two Distant Separate Quasars Judge Proceedings

The old guard, i.e. classical physics and/or philosophy, hold that for an event or action at one point to have an influence at another point, something in the perceived space between those points such as a field or unseen supreme being must arbitrate the action. To exert an influence or force, something, e.g. a wave, energy, or particle, must travel through the field between the two bodies, carrying the information/influence. Therefore, the principle of locality implies that an event/force at one point cannot cause an instantaneous, simultaneous result at another point. This also implies then that Quantum Mechanics violates either locality or realism, and models of Hard Determinism. More on this later.

What is undeniable and already happening is the dawn of Quantum Supremacy. What is Quantum Supremacy? Currently, and over the last decade or more, conventional supercomputers and microprocessors like the phone in your hand or laptop at your office do computations using bits-flipped like a coin with heads and tails; 1’s and 0’s and various binary combinations of those 1’s and 0’s. Polarity is another way of looking at it:  positive and negative combinations. The bigger the calculation, the more bits/coins (size and time) the microprocessor requires in today’s supercomputers. With quantum bits/processing (Qubits or Qb’s) they are a combination of 1’s and 0’s, or heads or tails as if the coin was constantly spinning on its axis showing both sides:  the more qubits, the greater the processing power.

What these calculating speeds mean is that Quantum Supremacy can make so many large, various calculations simultaneously that the number would exceed all the atoms in the entire observable Cosmos. The observable cosmos is currently measured at about 93-billion light-years in diameter. Try to imagine the number of atoms in that space. Quantum Supremacy is essentially reaching or is on the doorstep of consciousness. These quantum computers and quantum encryption rely on quantum entanglement being real, a law of nature!

Since the 1920’s and 1930’s Quantum physicists have theorized various forms and possible laws pertaining to the activity, behavior, and makeup of subatomic particles and their predicted or probable condition at any given time. However, old habits and stubborn ideologies and traditions die hard. Dare I say they sometimes appear immortal, divine, impervious, and immeasurable.

Not anymore, or not so much.

animated particlesMany scientific experiments have been made to test the veracity of quantum entanglement. All of them in their specific parameters have so far shown that quantum entanglement is real, but quite difficult to consistently explain. The nagging counter-argument has always been the freedom of choice loophole. This loophole basically means or purports that a hidden classical variable (God?) can or does influence (in degrees) how a curious experimenter/observer measures a subject, or in this case an entangled particle. Is that too confusing to wrap your head around? No worries. Here’s a tangible analogy.

Imagine the Universe as a bar-pub with 20 different beers listed above the bartender for you to drink. You think you can order any of the 20 beers, but then the manager from the back tells you, “We’re out of the lagers,” and so it turns out only thirteen of the beers are really on draft. You still have the freedom to choose from the remaining thirteen beers, but you were over-counting your degrees of freedom while unexpectedly reducing your chance of excessive inebriation! Woohoo! A good thing, right? Eh, depends on the size of the beer-drinker, his or her thirst, and the size of beer-glasses, and whether you have that much money to pay… or find your mouth by the time the 10th or 12th beer-glass is served and gravity kicks in like a MoFo! Get the loophole picture? God or gravity does not want you drinking so many good beers.

But in February 2018 our favorite pub-bar was completely redone, restaffed, restocked, and redefined. Sorry Jim, John Zande, and Arkenaten. Using the William Herschel Telescope in conjunction with the Galileo National Telescope—both a half-mile apart from each other—at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, in La Palma, Spain in the Canary Islands, a team of physicists led by Anton Zeilinger of the University of Vienna and David Kaiser of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, focused on two different High-Redshift quasars billions of light-years away (7.8 and 12.2) in order to determine whether the light-photons are more red or blue than a baseline. Since those photon-lights of the quasars being measured by the telescopes are actually over 7.8- and 12.2-billion years old, the likelihood that some classical mechanism, process, or loophole could intervene/interfere with their tests are precisely 10 ¯²°, or 1 in 100 billion billion. There is no conspiracy because the Earth is only 4.5 billion years old. However, there are probabilities as tiny and as far into outer space as you could impossibly imagine!

For the purpose of quantum entanglement, determinism, and the speed of light, what Zeilinger’s and Kaiser’s two 15-minute experiments—of over 17,000 and 12,000 pairs of entangled photons—showed was that the photon quasar pairs were indeed quantumly entangled even while located billions of light-years apart. Therefore, it is only a 1 in 100 billion billion chance that quantum entanglement does not exist. Like it or not, it is quite real and to Einstein’s chagrin, it is faster than the speed of light. Want a more layman’s description of that speed? If you could travel the speed of light, you could go around the entire Earth 7.5 times in one second. I’ll give you less than a minute to catch your breath.

The Ethical and Moral Implications of Quantum Entanglement

Earlier in this post I mentioned that Quantum Mechanics violates either locality or realism, and models of Hard Determinism. The origin of Determinism, and most certainly Hard Determinism can be found in several ancient Bronze and Iron Age, Classical Age, Post-Classical, and Early Modern civilizations and their histories. One of those civilizations or cultures that heavily influenced our Western Civilizations was ancient Judaism, Judaeo-Christianity, and Medieval-to-Modern Christianity. One consistent theme throughout all three of those aforementioned cultures was the implied and Scriptural sovereignty and foresight of their Judaeo-Christian God “YHWY” or Yahweh. In other words and for our identification and distinction here, God is causa sui, or a self-caused cause, timeless, the beginning of all beginnings in need of no cause to be. The overwhelming (canonical) Scriptural corroboration for this follows:

God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” (Exodus 3:14)

Before the mountains were born
Or You gave birth to the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God. (Psalm 90:2)

“For I, the Lord, do not change… (Malachi 3:6a)

O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
You understand my thought from afar.
You scrutinize my path and my lying down,
And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
Even the darkness is not dark to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are alike to You.

For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb. (Psalm 139:1-13)

And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. (Hebrews 4:13)

And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high… (Hebrews 1:3)

The Lord has established His throne in the heavens,
And His sovereignty rules over all. (Psalm 103:19)

Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows. (Matt. 10:29-31)

What shall we say then? There is no injustice with God, is there? May it never be! For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” (Romans 9:14-15)

Also Romans 8:28-39; Ephesians 1:3-14; 2:8; and 2 Timothy 1:9-10 and many more.

Clearly, according to the Jewish and Judaeo-Christian or Christian “God” of their canonical Bible there is no room for freedom of choice or free-will. This is also called Incompatibilism. No doubt, there will be thousands of other Christians, preachers and scholars alike (Wayne Jackson), screaming “foul, lies, and apostasy” at me. Yet, as shown by the above passages “God” is in complete and total control of everything and ultimately you. We are merely players acting out our preconceived programmes according to their Holy Scriptures and wildly enough, this is also believed and taught by some non-Christians. This thinking and imposed determinism (apostasy?) was further defined and defended by the creation of at least 10 classic dogmas, three that I emphasize deserve special attention:

  • Being – from Parmenides and Plato to Heidegger and Sartre, all Becoming and Time has been seen as a corrupt this-worldly illusion, preventing us from seeing the Great Chain of Being. All events are extratemporal and simultaneous in the eyes of God. Aquinas’ totem simul.
  • Necessity – Necessity is often opposed to chance. In a necessary world there is no chance. Everything that happens is necessitated. Nothing is contingent. From Leucippus to the Stoics, Leibniz, and Spinoza.
  • Analysis – from Pythagoras, Plato, Euclid, Archimedes, and Galileo comes the powerful train of thought that everything can be explained by analytical mathematical functions. Newton’s mathematical laws of motion for celestial bodies was the crowning achievement for analysis. For William Blake, breaking things into their component parts to analyze their workings was “murder to dissect.”
  • Certainty – Descartes’ quest for an undeniable fact on which he could erect the Truth of Philosophy and the Christian Religion.
  • Logic – Logical determinism is the simple idea that events in the future must be as true or false today as they will be after they happen. Aristotle doubted this in his famous discussion of the Sea Battle.
  • Causality – Aristotle and the great Scholastic thinkers imagined a causal chain from the First Cause to the present moment. Although David Hume said we could not prove causality from mere appearances of Regularity, he nevertheless believed deeply in Necessity, above as the 2nd bullet-point.
  • Physical – The first great determinism was that of the earliest physicists and philosophers Leucippus and Democritus. For them there was nothing but atoms moving through a void. Later the Stoic physicists based physical determinism on the Laws of Nature or the Laws of God, since they identified Nature with God via General Revelation.
  • Mechanism – If classical mechanics could explain the motions of the heavens as the result of natural laws, the same laws might explain human beings, including the individual mind and society. Enlightenment philosophers wrote of “Man as Machine.” Planetary motions and mental processes were compared to mechanical clockworks.
  • Reasoning – The idea that the universe must be rational—because its designer was rational, because thought would not be possible without reason, because natural laws must be rational, etc.—convinced many thinkers that reason allows only one future, and only one possible choice for the rational will.
  • Truth – The idea that one man, one religion, or one state possesses the One Truth (Monisms like 1 Corinthians 1:10) has been one of the most destructive ideas in the history of human thought.
bible determinism

(Abaco Bum, Flikr, Public Domain)

Some of these past thinkers, reformers, revolutionaries, prophets, preachers, apostles, philosophers, patristic fathers and what have you, would turn these dogmas into indivisible, lowest common denominator fundamentals, or immutable laws that all knowledge, thought, or the best science could not exist without one or more of the ten being unequivocally “true.” Bold? Misguided? Ignorant?

As Quantum Physics, Mechanics, and Computing become more understood, more refined, and harnessed beyond the speed of light to the point of consciousness, it would be an understatement to say humanity is near or undoubtedly at an unprecedented place in history. With quantum entanglement and computing anything is or will be possible because observed measurements (moral/ethical judgments) can never be more than probabilities. Hard Determinism denies any randomness in the operation of the world. Old guard traditionalist and Monists deny chance. They turn their eyes away from the underlying chaos in the universe. Probabilities and subjectivism makes their stomachs ill and their skin crawl. As William James succinctly described, Determinists or if I may, Absolute Certainists(?), have antipathy to chance and adequate probability.

Quantum entanglement and supremacy forces them to see the magnificent kaleidoscope of ergodic, creative phenomena that can build adequately determined information-blueprints in spite of, and basically on top of, our perpetual chaos. Hah! Ergodic procedures control, contain, constrain, and co-opt entropic chaos, using it to their own teleonomic ends of biological creativity, and, in the case of animal intelligence, human freedom. In a few words, Monism or classic Determinism, especially hard determinism, or causality is just plain ignorance and there is now ample evidence proving it does not exist. But there will always be hard-line deniers of pluralism and uncertainty.

Reason is the Devil’s greatest whore,” Martin Luther believed. I guess then it follows Luther’s logic that Quantum Entanglement is God’s invigorating libertine, huh? Mmm. Oh the rampant debauchery of it! Be still my thumping heart and nether parts!

Connectivity — The New Paradigm

The Greek philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus

paragraph formating

For those who are awake, the cosmos is One.

Heraclitus c. 475-455 BCE 

paragraph formatting

We are all connected.  The last four words of the previous article in this series (from Connectivity — Back to Physics Class).  “We are all connected.”  What do you think that really means?  Let us explore this question by first asking some other questions.

Why is the telegraph and Morse code not in use anymore?  At the time of its discovery, communication was taking place slowly.  Over long distances it sometimes took weeks or months to reach its intended eyes or ears.  With the advent of the telegraph that all changed, for the better.  Why is the Geocentric model of our solar system no longer in use?  At the time of its formulation, every day and night the sun, stars, moon, and visible planets appeared to revolve around the Earth, so it followed that the Earth was the center of everything.  Navigating the vast seas could be done precisely with this model and seafaring trade captains and sailors soon realized they actually would not fall off the edge of a flat Earth or limited seas.

The telegraph and Geocentrism both served mankind well and seemingly true, so why abandon them?  These old paradigms were no longer useful because humanity, more specifically human ingenuity, research, successful experimentation and modified hypothesi were able to flourish and discover they simply were untrue.  A closer look at these two historical events, however, reveals that one was widely embraced in a short period while the other took 1,200 years.  Imagine where this world would be had the Authorities of Truth and Death lost their mass appeal when Copernicus, Galileo, and Kepler first presented the right Universe?

Heraclitus is often considered one of the founders of Metaphysics and perhaps to an extent Quantum physics.  Going against the mainstream of his contemporaries, he said “You cannot step into the same river twice, for fresh waters are ever flowing in upon you.”  For the time, his claims were radical and challenged the establishment.  Another fascinating philosophy of Heraclitus was that of observer upon the nature of opposites.  It was his belief in the “unity of opposites”.  One cannot exist without the other, especially from the standpoint of the observer.  This type of debate, speculation, and reformation was welcomed right up into the early 4th century C.E. when everything changed.

Exclusivity:  The Old Paradigm

From about 2000 BCE to 400 C.E. commonly known as the Classical Era, there were two fundamental belief systems competing for the hearts and minds of mankind.  These opposing groups have been described in religious and historical texts in different forms.  One group taught doctrines of unity and wholeness of the world and cosmos.  The other taught doctrines of separation, classes or a caste system, and depravity.  The former embraces a multiverse where existence is simultaneous in parallel coexisting dimensions.  The latter embraces a universe, or monoverse if you will, where existence is dependent on another “force” and we control or have little influence upon it.  One is a participator/activator, the other is merely an observer/receptor.  Care to guess which group won out?  A few other fundamental sub-groups spawned from this system as well, amplifying the divisions and destruction upon humanity.

Exclusivity, or elitism, has been one of humanity’s worst undercover killers.  This lethal or potentially lethal mentality stems from a belief-framework of separation — separation from each other, or separation from creation/creator.  This mentality is sometimes subtle in where or how it exists, so allow me to elaborate.

Intolerance of differing beliefs or lifestyles is always accompanied by harmful action.  How many various examples of intolerance do we witness today?  How many various examples can we recall throughout recent or ancient history (Sept. 11th, 2001 and The Trail of Tears of the Cherokee nation to name just two)?  Don’t be fooled.  Merely considering followers of other religions to hold invalid beliefs, considering them “lost” or deluded, or assessing their behavior as immoral or heretical is nothing more than exclusivism.

If you are in the least hyper-sensitive about your personal communal religious beliefs, then you may consider stopping here and read no further.  I am going to point out specific passages in the Christian New Testament that clearly promote exclusivism, and potential-probable intolerance.  Keep in mind that anyone can find these underlying teachings in many of the world’s major religions; the Christian New Testament is one example and not being singled out.  But for most of Western Civilization — the birthplace of modern Quantum Mechanics — it must be pointed out as no longer useful.

The Apostle Peter, one of Christendom’s major icons, preaches exclusivism unequivocally:

Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole… Neither is there salvation in any other:  for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”— Acts 4:10-12

There are perhaps three ways to interpret this passage.  One, conservative Christian ministers and apologists accept this passage for face value.  All non-Christians will after death be unsaved from the expected/accepted eternal damnation of a place called Hell.  These verses have inspired missionaries, through hope and fear, to go into pagan non-Christian corners of the world to win converts.  The passage implies not only eternal punishment for non-Christian believers, but more profoundly an intolerant God of any other belief systems.

Apostles Peter and Paul – the two most revered contributors to the Christian New Testament

Second, many religious liberals might reject such a literal interpretation of the passage.  They could argue that a baby born in India or Arabia has a very likely chance of becoming a non-Christian adult — in other words, a Hindu, Muslim, or Sikh.  In modern Israel the chances of a baby becoming Jewish are around 99% not Christian.  According to the Apostle Peter and the Christian New Testament, trusting Jesus as Lord and Savior as the only route to eternal bliss, then a very large majority of the earth’s population will remain unsaved.  After their death, they will be tortured in Hell for all eternity without hope of mercy, for the simple reason that they followed the religion of their parents and community.  Many Christian liberals consider such a destiny to be incompatible with the concept of a loving and just God.

Thirdly, the Roman Catholic Church today takes a more moderate position on the matter:  even though followers of non-Christian faiths do not accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, it is possible for them to receive salvation by following their own religion.  However, this “new” mercy (presumably handed down from God to the Pope and his holiest bishops) does not extend to individuals who have been raised as agnostics or atheists, or have converted to unGodly beliefs such as agnosticism or atheism.  To say it another way, those who do not conform at a minimum to a monotheistic tradition such as Judaism, Christianity, or Islam will suffer eternal damnation.

The Apostle Paul teaches just as much exclusivity as Peter.  Paul wrote that Gentiles worshipped devils.  Today, those would be called Satanists, Black or White witches, occultists, or wiccans.

But I say, that the things which Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God:  and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils:  ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.”— I Corinthians 10: 20-21

Paul makes it clear that the Gods and Goddesses of other religions are actually demons.  Christians are to completely isolate themselves from non-Christians, not even dine at the same dinner tables.  “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:  for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?  And what communion hath light with darkness?” (II Corinthians 6: 14).  Paul requires his followers to separate from “unbelievers“.  He teaches his weak-willed followers to avoid close relationships with non-Christians.  He implies that non-Christians are automatically unrighteous.  He associates Christianity with “light” and all other religions with “darkness“.  Paul teaches that duality cannot coexist.  The Apostle Paul would be laughed at among modern quantum physicists.

“…ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:  Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:  Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins always:  for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.”— I Thessalonians 2: 14-16

Paul apparently has a tendency for anti-Semitism.  He clearly blames the Jews for murdering Jesus.  Christian theologians today and Roman historians alike, feel that Jews had little to do with Jesus’ execution.  Jesus’ aggravated assaults in the Jerusalem temple, and verbal abuse toward the Jewish priests would have been considered an act of insurrection by Roman authorities, and made him eligible for Roman crucifixion.  This falls in line, according to modern Roman scholars, with the Apostle Paul being previously well acquainted in Roman society, even a Roman citizen with all its amenities, prior to meeting Jesus on the road to Damascus.

There are several other clear indications that the Christian New Testament supports exclusivity.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:  no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”  — John 14: 6

As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”  — Galatians 1: 9

While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.  And they of the circumcision which believed [i.e. the Jewish Christians] were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.”  — Acts 10: 44-45

And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God.  And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision with him, saying, Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised, and didst eat with them.”  — Acts 11: 1-3

The first passage above (John 14: 6), it has been one of the main biblical passages of all Christendom used to devalue non-Christian religions or belief systems.  Its meaning and implications cannot be misunderstood in the least:  the only way to eternal bliss both here in this life or the next is through belief in Jesus and his teachings from the canonical Christian New Testament.  In the second passage (Galatians 1: 9), Paul simply curses any teachings that deviate from his own.  What many amateur Christians are unaware is that during the first two centuries C.E. (or in Catholic terms A.D.) there were three main Christian movements.  This should be no surprise at all to modern inquisitors of faith-choices.  Try to count all the various types of Catholic or Protestant churches available today, and you will spend the better part of a year or more researching their differences!  In 1st and 2nd century Jerusalem though, there were the Pauline Christians, who were pitted against the Gnostic Christians, and Jewish Christians, and any others.  More often than not, a city in that part of the Roman empire would have three or more Christian groups, each teaching very different doctrines.  Paul obviously proclaims not only HIS version of Jesus, but just as much his Graeco-Roman background.

In the third passage above (Acts 10: 44-45), Peter is publicly speaking to a mixed group of Jewish Christians and intrigued Gentiles.  A number of the Gentiles were “filled with the Holy Spirit.”  Jewish Christians were bothered by this because they felt the message was strictly for them.  They viewed Jesus’ teachings were merely a reform movement within Judaism, and not pertinent for non-Jews.  With the last passage (Acts 11: 1-3), some Jewish Christians argued with Peter for associating with non-Jews and eating with them, which was common during the time.  Before the Graeco-Roman teachings of Paul became mainstream in 325 C.E., Jewish Christians viewed Jesus’ reformations as teachings for them only.  Peter persuades many of them that it is the will of the Holy Spirit to also reform the Gentiles.  Nonetheless, the seven New Testament passages I have shared here are only a small portion of the many, many passages throughout the entire Bible — Old and New Testaments — that promotes separation among mankind, or elitism, or exclusion from creation/Creator.

Connectivity — The New Paradigm…Finally!

2008 World Literacy Map

Fortunately, with the help of modern quantum physics and unified field theory, the old paradigms are seeing their last decades.  This is more evident as the world’s cultures and nations gradually become more literate and can grasp, at least in basic terms or better, what these collective physicists and scientists are proving.  Examine the world literacy map (left).  It shows that much of the population is educated.  As this rate continues to rise over time, barring the militant illiterate regions exterminating much of humanity’s rise to mental and spiritual brilliance, the outcome will be that mankind requires a completely new framework of unity, of oneness, not separation.  Let me be more precise; not religious separation.

A religion old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths. Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge.   — Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot (1994)

You may think that Carl Sagan’s revelation is far-fetched.  Yet, already many renown scholars of mathematics and quantum physicists are in agreement:  the existence of a web of energy connecting our physical world and our bodies to everything in the universe/multiverse suggests an entire overhaul of life as we have perceived it the last sixteen centuries.  John A. Wheeler, a theoretical physicist at Princeton University and colleague of Albert Einstein, is credited for mentoring some of America’s most accomplished scientists of quantum mechanics today.  Einstein believed that mankind had little influence on our environment, on our universe as a whole and that we were simply spectators.  However, the late John Wheeler and his protegés today offer a radical departure from Einstein’s commonly held system.  “We are participators…” Wheeler explains, “in bringing into being not only the near and here but the far away and long ago. We are in this sense, participators in bringing about something of the universe in the distant past and if we have one explanation for what’s happening in the distant past why should we need more?”  Light (or the energy of light) travels to our eyes and skin by billions of interacting particles between us and our Sun, or light bulbs, or fires, whatever the source.  If Wheeler is correct, then we are each creators of our reality and as we understand our world, the 7 billion inhabitants on this planet collectively manifest life itself!  Quantum physics is supporting Wheeler’s idea too.

Are things able to travel faster than the speed of light, and can they be in two places at once?  And if things have this ability, what about us?

(line break)
In addition to proving a unified field, an energy web connecting everything, quantum research is showing that the connections exist BECAUSE of us!  We are not some creation out of an invisible force’s boredom or loneliness.  Indeed, the fact that the quantum discoveries show we can use our connectedness consciously hands us the key to open the door to the same power that drives the whole universe/multiverse.  Let that sink in for a moment.  Put another way, because of our direct connection to inner and outer space, our oneness living inside you, me, and every single being on this planet, we have a direct line…no, we are a vital part of the same force that creates everything from atoms to the DNA of existence itself.  Therefore, in ways that we are only now realizing, we find that not only are we inseparable with all life and human beings, and what we see, but also with everything that has ever been, as well as things which are yet to happen!  Do you need a moment to fathom that?  Do you understand that what we are experiencing now is the result of events that have already occurred in a realm of the multiverse we cannot even see?  Yes indeed, these are the discoveries over the last 2-3 years in quantum physics.

The ramifications of these discoveries are huge, and undermine so many centuries of tradition, myth, and legend.  As the evidence mounts and the quantum discoveries continue, all of mankind will finally be forced to toss out the Medieval Dark Age paradigms once and for all.  The telegraph and Geocentric model will no longer serve, if you will, any purpose for our modern needs.  Hence, the defunct orthodoxy of the nature of existence:  who we are, what we are, what we need for the “beyond” will finally, and long over due, be matched with reality and how the multiverse/universe and creation truly function.  What an awe-inspiring exciting future that holds for ALL OF US….not just a “special” few.

Like it or not, you, me, and every single soul on this earth are intimately connected; not all separate, exclusive, or élite.  I dare say the only difference is our freedom of creativity, ingenuity, and altruistic philanthropy to “spread the wealth” of true existence.  We are very much connected.  What a wonderful breath of fresh air this is!

Connectivity — Back to Physics Class

I will attempt to put in simple terms (from my blog Connectivity — Part 2) what Quantum Superposition, Entanglement, and Bose-Einstein Condensates mean to the average person on the streets.  At least that is my hope.  My apologies if I am unsuccessful, but in my brain and soul what is taking place in the fields of paranormal investigations within law-enforcement, as well as research by investigators at haunted locations around the world, the gap between Quantum Field physicists and their remarkable discoveries, and that of common “ghost” investigators…is closing with every passing year.  This is most exciting!  What pleases me more is that it is being done without religious orthodoxy — indeed it cannot be done within the confines of traditional religious orthodoxy.  Creativity and discovery — one of mankind’s most powerful gifts — cannot be realized when a system of conformity forbids it.  Breaking free from centuries of stifling religious chains-of-superstition, Nobel Prize scientists and research are making exciting progress!  Indeed, they are unlocking The Nature of the Universe!

Through these following short videos I will point out one spectrum of uniformity — in Quantum Mechanics called the Unified Field — that is not visible to our naked eye, but is quite real nonetheless.

Sub-atomic particles can never be destroyed or reduced into nothingness according to the classical Law of Conservation of Matter.  Objects merely change form after certain chemical or nuclear reactions in a closed or sealed air-tight system.  From the studies of modern chemistry and physics came nuclear physics: the nature, interaction, and building blocks of atomic nuclei.  Beginning at the nuclear and atomic levels, scientists have developed laws and theories explaining why and how the nature of life behaves.  The two videos you just watched showed that by some seemingly invisible force, particles moved or joined into intelligent symmetrical and elliptical shapes based on the intensity or energy created.

It is well-known how easily electric currents travel through water.  Sound travels through water the same way.  What is probably less understood is how any type of energy transports from one point to another.  But first, what is going on with sound?  Sound is a mechanical wave form resulting from disturbed atomic particles vibrating back and forth within some type of solid, liquid, or gas medium.  The human ear can audibly detect these waves only within a specific frequency range of 20 Hz – 20,000 Hz (pitch resolution), also determined by intensity (expressed in decibel), and atmospheric pressure (expressed in vibrations of one-tenth of an atomic diameter).  Frequencies below 20 Hz are usually felt and not heard if the number of disturbed atomic particles are large enough (amplitude).  Frequencies above 20,000 Hz can sometimes be detected by infants, toddlers, or young children due to their youthful uncontaminated eardrums.  Much of what we perceive through our senses, e.g. sight, sound, touch, even smell, is vibrational movement or disturbance that our senses capture.

Even though our ears and eyes are very sensitive to nature’s waveforms, we actually perceive a very tiny range of the full spectrum of known vibrations; or that is to say, the full range of disturbances in atomic particles generated by forces of energy.  Light travels on the electromagnetic spectrum; a much larger range of frequencies (see Frequency Chart) than our sound range.  As you can see in the Frequency Chart, our senses are only able to perceive vibrations between 34,000 and 64,000 waves to the inch.  Detecting other vibrations outside this range requires special high-tech equipment like FLIR cameras (Forward Looking InfraRed) or electromagnetic indicators (e.g. EMF detector) that are capable of taking us and our perceived world and glimpse the Aetheric world.  But are machines the only means into the aetheric?  Was there an aetheric vibrating world in existence prior to our technological advances?  Have vibrational disturbances through mediums such as solids, liquids, and gases, even vacuums been taking place all along on higher and lower frequencies our eyes, ears, skin, and noses are not attuned to?

Nuclear physics and Quantum mechanics are showing compellingly that the entire Universe is indeed one massive medium with vibrations going on simultaneously (Entanglement) on all frequencies all the time.  On the subatomic level, electrons, protons, and neutrons are constantly interacting.  Some repel each other, some attract each other to form a new molecule, and some coexist.  And the space between these interacting or disturbed particles is on a 10 to the minus 8 centimeters scale; plenty of space for wild interactions!  These nonstop interactions are taking place now, even between objects, and have done so since the birth of the Universe.  Our human bodies exist in only one small part of the true full spectrum of Inner space (the nuclear level) and Outer space.  But every bit of it connects.  With that said, what does it also say about the potential of our human brain?  Or better yet, what does it mean for a soul?  The following video clip Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman, airing on the Science Channel, explains how our thoughts influence our immediate space around us and into the eternal memory bank of the Universe.

The third video clip postulated water having memory.  If that is true as Quantum science is supporting, what does it imply about the air around us as shown in the first two video clips?  And given that no nuclear particle is ever completely destroyed into nothingness, how does a perpetual infinite memory bank impact those around us?  On other frequencies beyond our very limited powers of observation, how much is seen or not seen, and remembered, forever?  What if even our most secret thoughts were secret in illusion only, but available to anyone at anytime, including as it is happening?  That approaches pre-detection or recognitions doesn’t it?  That is essentially what Quantum physicists call Superposition…as I understand it.  Since vibrations cause movement, and on the atomic and nuclear scales movement causes energy and temperatures, now is good time to explain Bose-Einstein Condensates.

Most of us know that when certain gas molecules join together forming a liquid, it is called condensation.  For example with a frosted mug placed on the table, eventually a wet ring forms at the base; it happens because energy in the surrounding warm air is lost.  Gases are very excited energized atoms.  Liquids are less energized and solids are the least energized with only electronic movement within the atoms.  Bose-Einstein Condensates represent the congealing of very cold atomic particles right before absolute zero (Kelvin scale) stops everything; or that is to say a group of atoms take up the same space with all the same qualities forming a super atom.

It may still seem abstract at this point but what modern physics has revealed is that beyond our classical Newtonian-Empedoclesian laws of nature, those laws completely collapse on the atomic and subatomic levels.  Over that threshold an entirely different world of laws exist.  And don’t be too hasty to slap a catch-all title to that Aether world.  When I say the ancient laws of nature completely collapse, included are most of the ancient myths of all the world’s religions.

What has our return to physics class told us?  In the brief time that I have probably crudely explained over this post and the previous two posts on Connectivity, one point needs understanding:  our human body, our brain, our soul are very much connected not only with our immediate surroundings but equally so with this planet, everyone on it, and this Universe.  Space or time does not separate our existence from anyone or anything.  Think about that for a moment.

Before moving on to my next blog on Connectivity — The New Paradigm, the following video clip can perhaps put everything in a more understandable  framework.  It is from the 2004 series What the Bleep Do We Know – Down the Rabbit Hole.

Connectivity — Part 1

Since 325 CE with the Greco-Romanization of Jewish Christians and 622 CE with followers of Muhammad (Islam) unifying in Yathrib (now considered Mecca), centuries perhaps millenniums of mankind’s natural connection to the spirit-world began being severed.  Up until those two particular dates in time, earth’s populations had a plethora of spiritual exercises and belief systems that often connected them purposely and intimately to their ancestral history; to their living dead.  To mankind’s detriment these very real gifts and abilities to connect to the non-physical, to the quantum field,  were systematically exterminated by oppressive religions.  Fortunately, and for the sake of thousands upon thousands of suffering families today, these ancient gifts and methods are still alive and well, and gradually finding their way back to their natural wide-spread acceptance in Western and Middle Eastern cultures.  I hope to be a small part of that rebirth with this post and my Blog.

Child psychologist Dr. Lisa Miller and an associate professor in Psychology and Education at Columbia University (Miller’s webpage at Columbia) has spent her clinical and teaching career advocating the reacceptance of paranormal gifts in American adolescents at risk for social ostracization by their peers and family members.  The Columbia University page explains that:

Cultures outside the U.S. – notably China and Mexico – embrace experiences such as visits from ancestor spirits and derive important psychological benefits from them.  In the U.S., however, Miller says, such experiences “are not supported by a system of meaning or an understanding of reality that’s widespread in our culture.

The work of Dr. Miller is seen on the A&E television series Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal where she and partner Chip Coffey, a well-known psychic himself, travel the country helping countless adolescents understand, accept, and then use their extraordinary gifts and not fear them, be labeled crazy, or worse…be treated as demonic vessels by religious zealots.  “Often children are quite depressed and confused by their experiences – not by the experience itself,” Miller explains “…but by the feedback they’ve gotten, whether in their own families or in the school setting.”  In one particular episode, the Miller-Coffey team helped three separate kids who didn’t know how to sort out their experiences.  Consequently, the three had become behavioral problems in their homes and schools.  Miller’s work helps stave off dangerous conditions of depression, substance abuse or dependence they would otherwise fall victim or use to cope.  Coffey and Miller were able to guide the three to the family of a son missing since 2001.  With their psychic abilities they brought closure and peace to the victimized family that local law enforcement or forensics could not have relieved.

Sadly or happily, depending on your frame of reference, adolescents are not the only age group wrongly defined by the American mainstream.  Adults with psychic-paranormal experiences can face the same type of societal ridicule.  The good news is — if I may borrow the popular church phrase — that over the last couple of decade’s law enforcement across the country have begun using psychic investigators to revitalize cold cases with remarkable success.  Gale St. John, Nancy Myer, Sue Nicholson, Valerie Morrison, Nancy Weber, Noreen Renier, Phil Jordan, Etta Smith, Annette Martin, Pascarella Downey, Laurie McQuary, Lauren Thibodeau, and the list could go on for several more pages but these named psychics have helped either break open cold cases or significantly contributed to the arrest and conviction of many missing or murdered people.  For the skeptics out there, many of these psychic investigators work for free or by donations only.  The scientific understanding behind these gifted paranormal experts possibly lies in the quickly progressing field of Quantum Mechanics.

Positive vs. Negative crystals

Many of us learned in high school chemistry classes about the Law of Conservation of Mass/Matter.  Developed in the mid-18th century by French chemist Antoine Lavoisier and contemporaries, this law states that elemental particles making up a solid, liquid, or gas are never lost or never created, but they can be rearranged.  When water boils, for example, if boiled long enough all the water will change into gas.  If all that rising gas were kept completely contained, the container of gas would weigh exactly the same as the original container of water.  It is the weight or volume of elements that never change despite their “new” forms.

Water has been the medium of Japanese photographer Dr. Masaru Emoto and his impressionable droplets.  Between Emoto and John Zimmerman, PhD of the Bio-Electro-Magnetic Institute their experiments have shown that our brain and body organs send electromagnetic waves measurable in water.  In Emoto’s microscopic photographs (seen above) he captures the difference between frozen water crystals surrounded by positive energy such as beautiful music, emotions of love or gratitude or happy thoughts, while also capturing frozen crystals surrounded by negative energy, i.e. the opposite of the aforementioned energy forms.  The difference between the frozen crystals is stunning.  The positively surrounded crystals clearly exhibit symmetry, balance, and relative beauty compared to the negatively surrounded crystals.  Additionally, and to Emoto’s credit, the Backster Effect collaborates this theorem: that plants or living species which have no apparent brain can also transmit electromagnetic waves.  Further reading of Sir Jagdish Chandra Bose’s findings is also well worth expanding one’s understanding of wave form.

Something physicists are attempting to understand is a theory Einstein tried to prove called the Uniform Field.  If this theory proves to be true or valid, it would be the field that connects all sub-atomic waves without requiring any constants of nature being present.  Make sense?  Yeah, I will try to elaborate further in the next blog: Connectivity — Part 2.
