Everything is energy and reality isn’t real
Quantum physicists are discovering facts about the world that we would never have thought to be possible.
The scientific breakthroughs that have taken place in the last few years are very important to our understanding of reality but the problem is that many of us simply do not understand quantum physics.
Scientists decided that to prove that reality was not, in fact, simply an illusion, they had to discover the “point particle”, and this would be accomplished with innovations like the Large Hadron Collider.
This machine was initially built to smash particles into one another, and this is where they made the greatest discovery: the physical world is not as physical as we believe. Reality is an illusion as we see it and i believe this shows that everything around us is just energy.
We’re Programmed for Survival, Not Truth
One of the things that we all take for granted is the general definition of truth.
We associate truth with the daily cause and effect relationships that we observe in our lives. In a sense, many of them are true.
When it comes to seeing reality for what it really is, beyond specific contexts confined by the language we use to interact with each other, then it’s fairly evident that we don’t — at least currently — see the world as it really is, which is why the objective and the subjective overlap.
Humans are not programmed for truth. They are programmed for survival.
There are smells around that we physically can’t smell, there are sights to witness beyond the wavelength that our eyes operate in, and there are sounds to be heard that we will never fully hear.
The reason for this is that these things aren’t required for us to pass on our genes. The environments that we adapted to didn’t need us to be able to see like a snake might be able to or to sniff to the extent that a dog can.
Everything we take for granted as reality is, in fact, an illusion of sorts. There may be an objective component to what we see, but much of that objectivity is limited. Further yet, a lot of it is clouded by our subjective judgments.
Reality Is Just Energy
We think of the atom as an organized group of electrons and protons zooming around a neutron, but this figure is completely wrong.
The particles that make up the atoms have no structure or size, no weight or physical presence.
They have no height, length, width, or weight, and are nothing more than events in time. They have zero dimensions.
Electrons also do not have a singular presence—they are both a particle and a wave simultaneously, depending on how they are observed.
They are never in a single location at a single moment, and instead exist in several moments at the same time.
Scientists also discovered what is known as the “superposition”, in which several particles aside from electrons can be proven to exist in multiple places at a single moment.
What does all this mean?
It means that the more we discover about the subatomic world, the more we discover that we know nothing about the true nature of reality at all.
The Copenhagen Interpretation
Many scientists have come to the Copenhagen Interpretation as their conclusion for understanding reality.
The Copenhagen Interpretation comes from the school of quantum mechanics, and it believes that reality does not exist without an observer to observe it.
As reality is nothing more than energy, then the energy is conscious when consciousness is observing it.
I know this may be difficult to understand.
Think of it this way: since particles exist in several areas at the same time, then it must respond to an observation by choosing to exist in a singular location, allowing the observer to have an image to observe.
A growing number of researchers in this field believe that reality exists only because human consciousness wills it to exist, by interacting with the energy that makes up the universe.
Understanding the Universe as Information
Another mind-blowing discovery in quantum physics is entanglement.
Entanglement is when a pair of particles have interacted and have affected the spin of the other particle.
What’s strange is that once these two particles have become tangled with one another, they can never become untangled.
No matter how far apart they may stretch from the other, the spin of one particle will always affect the spin of the other.
Researchers have observed this in living cells, communicating over far distances. In one famous experiment, researchers grew algae cells in a petri dish. They then separated these cells into two halves, taking one half to another laboratory.
What they found was that no matter how much they separated the two dishes, a low-voltage current applied on one dish would always affect the cells in the other dish in the exact same way at the exact same moment.
But How Is this possible?
Understanding this requires shifting the way we think of the universe. We can no longer think of the universe as a physical realm in which the things we observe and sense are all that exists.
Instead, as famous physicist Sir Roger Penrose theorized, we must envision the universe as nothing but information.
We must believe that the physical universe is just a product of an abstract universe, in which we are all connected in an unobservable way.
Information is simply embedded into the physical constructs of the physical universe, but is transmitted to our physical states from the abstract realm, first theorized by Greek philosopher, Plato.
As Erwin Schrodinger famously stated, “What we observe as material bodies and forces are nothing but shapes and variations in the structure of space. Particles are just appearances.”
Simply put, everything is nothing but energy.
Coping With A Different Reality
I believe there are certain questions and realizations you must come to terms with after learning this true state of reality. You could obsess over the implications indefinitely, but here are a few to start you off:
You have never touched anything, and you never will. The electrons that make up your atoms repulse against the electrons of other physical entities, making it impossible for you to interact with other material at the subatomic level.
If we are not touching anything, then what is it that we feel when we “touch”?
How is the world physical when the building blocks that make it have no dimensions?
How is anything real, and what does real mean?
Is reality determined by physicality?
Life is Simply a Creative Process
We are here to simply create and what we choose to create is our purpose. Our consciousness is in charge of creating whatever we want. Our consciousness didn’t come here to create “good” or “bad” it just came to create.
Our consciousness didn’t come here to stop people creating things or tell people what to create, instead out consciousness came here to play.
Just like an artist paints on canvas, our energy has come here to create in the physical form.
Everything about your life is temporary. This is not said to be bleak, instead it is said to make you realize that all of those fears you have and all of those self-liming beliefs you have placed on yourself are not real. They don’t matter. They too are not real.
Our mind likes to play tricks on us. Just look at this image- what do you see?
Some may see a rabbit and some may see a duck. Neither is wrong or right, it just how we choose to perceive things. Your reality and how you live your life is dependent on how you choose to see things.
Life is But a Dream
We are all living in a dream. But we also have some control over how we can direct our dream, there are just one rule- the rule of the physical.
While we are unlimited energetic potential on the inside, we also have to observe the physical laws that keep us rooted in our body.
By adding this physical component, it allows us to create things that also share the same physical properties. By being bound by our physical bodies, it allows us to see things from a new and different perspective.
It is an illusion to think that our physical bodies stop us from tapping into the potential that lives within. We all have creative potential inside that we can use to create and manifest our reality.
We are in control of the dream, but because we are all connected, everyone is responsible for the same dream. We each have to take responsibility for our own share of the dream.
Reality is as much real as it is a figment of our imagination. There is nothing you have to fear if you know that it can be rebelled against. You are not your circumstances, just like you are not your past.
That, to me, is the most liberating fact of existence.
Remember the limitlessness of who you are, and step into your power. Your heart will expand with more love than you’ve ever felt before. From that place of incredible self-love within, you create a world that reflects back your new reality.
