If you don’t believe that anything – if not everything – is possible, I challenge you to spend half-an-hour with a scientist specializing in Quantum Mechanics and/or Quantum Theory and rue the day if you happen to be in the room with two or more of them at the same time (I know you guys are reading this, and I have zero disrespect for your research, in fact, I sincerely have great admiration for the work that you do).
I have had people invite me into their world of discovery, like my friend, Norman, who wanted me to join him on his research into the Cosmos. What? As if I wasn’t already feeling insignificant enough, now you want to tell me that I am but a speck on our planet, in our galaxy surrounded by other galaxies, in a universe alongside an unlimited number of universes all laid out side-by-side? (Give me a break.)
Then, throw in the quantum ideas that amidst all those universes, I am there. Me. In this moment in time, in the past and in the future, living out alternate realities… Yikes!
I can handle a few minutes and grasp some of the concepts, but when you get out into Many Interactive Worlds (MIW) it gets so complicated for me, that I just try to grasp what ideas I can and leave the rest to the physicists at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) and the other researchers and scientists – who have chosen this to be their life’s work – to unravel the details.
Like many other popular topics of interest around the world (and beyond the known world) I prefer not to get distracted by the details of certain things that are so fascinating that drilling down in an attempt to uncover the most minute details could keep me from accomplishing my mission, purpose or achieving my highest and best.
In my line of work it is not uncommon for me to be interacting with research and development (R&D) teams who are integrating quantum fields into their areas of study, and the concepts boggle the mind as it is so far removed from what our current level of understanding is. You can go through school – even upper levels of education – and never be exposed to quantum mechanics.
On the other hand, government agencies, like the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has well-documented interests in quantum R&D and there are courses of study that cater to those who can handle imagining excavating ideas that are incongruent for the rest of us.
Thanks to Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., I have somewhat an idea about the double-slit experiment (which I find the most significantly intriguing), though talking with him at length about other topics is unproductive, to say the least.
And if that wasn’t enough, there is some cross-over between the psychic, paranormal, religious belief, traditional science and quantum theory… It’s all possible, though admittedly not my area of expertise.
I get overwhelmed by the ideas of atoms, electrons, entanglements, superposition, energetic field(s), quarks, dark matter, dark energy, black holes, etc… leaving the intricacies of those to the specialists. If I have need of any specific details about any of their properties, I can consult an expert and I suggest you do the same. In lieu of not having a person to call on, then by all means consult Google.
You guys (and gals) keep delving into the unfathomable on our behalf and keep me posted; I love you!
