Synchronicities and Quantum Physics…More Experiences

Photo by on

Over the last several months I’ve been exploring quantum physics again, not the mathematical equations, but the concepts and their implications as far as significance in our everyday life. I discovered a couple physicists on YouTube that I really enjoyed listening to as well; one was Dr. Lothar Schafer PhD, a physicist and professor at University of Arkansas for 40 years who conducted many experiments and wrote many published scientific papers regarding quantum physics. I have also been listening to Dr. Menas Kafatos PhD, a physicist who received his doctorate from MIT. Both of these people are strong proponents of a growing body of scientific evidence that consciousness is fundamental to existence. They also point out how the quantum field is mind-like. They have helped me conceptualize these theories and to translate them over to possible applications of quantum mechanics at work in our everyday lives. The experiences I’m going to share later in this post, I believe at least point in the direction of quantum theory applying to our own brain. I also believe that people can and do have these experiences all the time without realizing their significance or that they actually hold water in science.

Thought as “wave” and “particle”

As I’ve learned to be more present and aware during my day I have had an increased frequency of synchronicities. What I mean by present and aware is the ability to allow thoughts to pass by in the mind without reacting to them or at least only reacting to them if I want to. Meditation seemed to be the doorway to learning to do this. Anyway my thought is what if “mind” has different states just like particles, atoms, photons, molecules, etc.? Non-focused on thoughts would be the wave, and focused thought would be the solidification (reaction) or the “particle?” So thought in other words is the potentiality wave, and then the act of focusing on a thought is the creation of the form or the “particle.” Within awareness (the quantum field, or void) the thoughts float around without energy, they are formless bits of information like a quantum wave. Then when the thought is focused on, energy comes, the wave collapses and the thought transitions from the realm of potentiality, and comes into existence. This in turn causes an internal reaction within the body that we can substantiate for ourselves. Now that I have shared this concept I want to share some experiences and try to apply this idea to them.

Awareness as a quantum field and my personal experience

Theoretically if awareness is part of a quantum field or outside the realm of our senses and causes thoughts to come into existence out of “nothing” it is almost as if awareness is outside of time and space. Would that make our awareness timeless? Eternal? Would this give us access to all information available despite time or distance? I digress, now to the story. So, I was at one of my son’s baseball games after working night shift and I had only slept a few hours. This dude’s face popped in my head all the sudden. I used to play basketball with him at the YMCA and I hadn’t seen him in several months. I was extremely tired though and I couldn’t remember his name (those that work nights know what I’m talking about). It bothered me that I couldn’t remember his name so I pulled out my phone and figured I would recognize his name in my contacts and so I began scrolling through the names eventually I found his name and left it at that. A couple minutes later my kids started asking for candy at the concession stand and I reluctantly agreed to buy them some overpriced candy. As I approached the line, I walked right up to the guy I had been thinking about that used to play basketball at the YMCA.

It doesn’t seem very scientific for us to consign this experience to the realm of “coincidence” without at least investigating the possibility that there is something more to this. Science is revealing more and more that things are looking less and less random. I believe based on the feeling I had inwardly at the time that somehow, I perceived this person’s presence. The random nature of these experiences happening inclines me to think that this “outside realm” is something we tap into and not something that we are always in tune with. We are tapping into another order somehow. Something Dr. David Bohm called the implicate order. We are still human and can get over excited about these experiences which cause our thoughts to go crazy and can muddy the water to the point of mental exhaustion even mental health issues. I think a lot of people lose credibility too because they pretend to know more than they actually do about the meaning of their experiences. I’m not talking about this I’m talking about scientifically rethinking these experiences and trying to determine what they are.

My theory on my experience

I don’t know how this works, but I think we are all connected by the field of awareness. In analyzing my experience, I think I was relaxed and open due to being tired, my mind was very calm, and so I was able to somehow briefly dip into that quantum field. Kind of like sticking your head in a stream, I was able to dip my mind into the stream of information that seems to be invisibly recorded in the background of life and pick up on him. The feeling that came over me when he popped into my head was not that I knew he was there; it was just a picture initially. Somehow this field of information made me aware of his close proximity. It seems like my mind was the receiver and had to translate the data I was receiving into language. I think it’s interesting that I couldn’t remember his name. For some reason that reminds me that we are more than labels, symbols, and language.

Another experience

My kids and I have recently taken up fish keeping and those that have too know that it takes a lot of research and work to keep your fish healthy. We initially bought a Betta fish and thought we were doing everything right and sadly learned the hard way that you have to cycle the tank, test ph, seed the water, etc. We lost our first Betta. After we set up the proper conditions we got a second one and he is thriving. We bought a 5 gallon tank and added some minnows to that tank. They are doing well. Several weeks ago I was asleep up stairs in my room and I always have a fan on to block out the noise so I couldnt hear or see anything going on down stairs. I began seeing in my dream the 5 gallon fish tank that has 4 minnows in it, as I am looking I notice that one is missing and I reach my hand in to find it.

Anyway, I wake up a bit later go downstairs, and my son is standing at the tank and tells me he’s been looking for one of the minnows for over 10 minutes and hasn’t found it. He then reached his hand in the tank to find it. It was the picture I saw in my dream. However, in my dream the fish was dead, but that was my interpretation; the translation by my mind of the data I received from that field of awareness. Just to clarify I know it wasn’t odd that I would dream about the fish I was worried about them and that would be perfectly natural. What I am pointing out is that somehow, I picked up on pieces of actual events that happened in the future. In this case minutes after I woke up. To me this adds another dimension to awareness; that the quantum field contains past and present potentialities that eventually actualize as the only outcome that was possible based on the circumstances in the physical world and the invisible qualities of wave and form patterns I described earlier. It would seem like this field participates with us in very real ways and invites us to participate back. Maybe awareness is actually fundamental to existence. I have many other experiences that I hope to share in later posts.

Religion had become my way of resigning to not thinking for myself.

The self doubt religion creates in the independent mind is to force submission. Taught to doubt yourself and let the brainwashing begin.

Expected to be predictable for the comfort of those who fear living. The mental chastening at the initiation of an original thought from the perpetrator. Perpetrator in their eyes.

Shared ideas for genuine feedback met with a systematic dismantling of independent thinking.

Playing within the confines of religious expectation, you come to realize the rules only apply to the individual in subjection; not to the authority. This is not freedom.

Control takes precedence over love, and dogma is the tool. The constant that keeps the people in line. Religion.

Stay Present

Stay present, keep your mind from meaningless wondering the strife engulfed riddle of the unknown

Forget the unknoweable, look for understanding trust the process dont give into childish feelings, but find joy in accepting the truth about nature.

Nature and what is seen gives the meaning in simplistic guidance, if you look for sound reasoning, believe in evidence. Suspend judgment until then

Find the path you choose to walk, but if you want peace live in the present, you are not going to be the one to figure it all out. Humanities understanding is cumulative and you are a part.

Stay present and take action.

Is God a Narcissist?

Is a relationship with god a narcissistic one? Does god get his fuel by controlling peoples minds that he gave?

The ultimate skull fuck to create and give a nature in opposition and then punish the finite mind that doesn’t understand

I don’t buy it, but it took a long time to see. Looking around at others suffering and doing mental gymnastics to somehow convince ourselves it wont happen to me.

Why not accept the random and give up the comforting facade we mistake as assurance and allow ourselves to see clearly.

Now is what matters, our friends, our families, dont waste time, you dont know how much time we have.

Dont waste it causing division between your loved ones and judging the things in them that you know are natural and human. Let the anger go, open your heart to love those around you without fear.

Be a good person

Be a good person, no need for reward, find the truth of being without needing recompense.

Just be a good person, dont worry about philosophy or what its supposed to mean.

Life is meaningful enough if you live it. Analyzing constantly to figure out how others think is futile and a protective mechanism.

You dont need meditation you need presence and awareness. Be part of the moment without thinking you have to pay attention or something will pass you by.

The only thing your missing is now.

We think we will find the answers by painfully searching our heart and soul for answers.

We seek answers in books and quotes, we speak and pour out hoping for healing.

It is distracting for awhile, an escape from our entertainment thirsty reality.

We have to learn to love the quiet moments, to not give in to the minds constant pleading. To rest in ourselves and pull back all our perceived obligations and focus on what matters the most.

We cant heal ourselves without vulnerability.

Why are you living in fear?

I’m Alone

I’m alone, the questions I ask aren’t answered the silent treatment is unbearable. The open communication seems to cause more pain

I fear the pain it will cause my kids. But then I think, I wouldn’t know. Would it be better for them to not have the melodrama that is me?

Is there light? Is there peace anywhere, is it possible to stop fearing, is there a way to give up insecurity?

When I think it’s gone, it comes back and wreaks havoc on my loved ones. Is there a cure for my self hatred? Is there a way to see clearly?

Is it possible to share closeness with another? To let down all guards and be loved? Is it possible or are we just cursed to continue to distance ourselves from each other?

Are we cursed to be part of the play? To sit alone in the silence of our minds eye watching the fleeting fears and thoughts pass by?

Hearing then applying the way others want you to think. This is a problem

Waiting for others to teach you what to think with the promise that it will apply to all you think and insulate you from pain.

Someone will always be better than you. Someone will always beat you. The wounded ego raises up when offended. The fear that someone will take what’s mine.

Fear that others will see that I’m worthless. This is not the way to think. There is value in being a human being. Our precious dreams and visions cause us pain.

Refusing to love because of fear, to mold the mind to hate it, to hate love.

To hate the ones who cause stress, understanding our instincts and being aware of them can help self control, but never think knowing the instincts or motives of others will ever grant you control over them.

It’s a bottomless pit. You cant control others even the ones who intentionally push you. You can ask them to leave you alone, but only lose control over you if you let go of the offense.

What Is Hope?

I don’t know what hope is, but I know there is a power that comes with it that seems to align things in my favor when I don’t give up. Hope seems to know when the things I’m engaging in are wearing at my soul. Hope brings me back to my center.

I wish it was made clear so that I could rest in it. Maybe I’m scared of losing approval from others. Most complain, I’ve slowly become jaded and pessimistic; comfortable. I don’t want to be like this. I’ve lost my filter, and it is hard for me to keep my mouth shut especially with disingenuous people who manipulate with their words.

My negative attitude is getting me in trouble, but I feel like I don’t know how to care. I stop myself from loving too much out of fear of manipulation. The people who have picked at my soul make me want to crush their soul with my words.

The ones who have taken advantage of my yes, and take the upper hand when you are not in your element. The ones who exploit others, and take them captive with lies and promises.

To hope is to find yourself and to stay yourself in the midst of this struggle of ebb and flow…give and take. To trust the self that isn’t fearful and to understand that this then takes on the appearance of the divine. An energy flows that feeds and gives hope.
