It's a Quantum ThingWritten by Maya Talisman Frost
We don't need to understand quantum physics entirely in order to appreciate it. Even those who have devoted their lives to study of universe and its atomic structure will admit that many mysteries remain. Well, I love mysteries, so let's set scene for this one...
There's a Big Bang. "Whoosh!" go all molecules. Much swirling commences. Fast forward 12 billion years (give or take a billion) to present day. People all over world watch sci-fi movies, read physics texts, attend harmonic convergence gatherings, study nanotechnology, and gaze at stars. Our questions: How did we get here? Who are we? Where is here? Why? What next?
If you’re expecting quantum theory to answer those questions, you’re going to be disappointed. However, it does give us some heady new ways to anticipate those answers.
Let’s take a look at some terms. Back in fifth century BC, our Greek friend Democritus had idea that all matter is ultimately made up of tiny grains that cannot be divided into smaller pieces. He called these little pieces “atoms” for Greek phrase “a-tomos” which means “uncuttable”. Poor Democritus didn’t have advantage of sophisticated microscopes, so it’s not surprising that, centuries later, it was discovered that atoms are actually cuttable. In fact, atoms are themselves made up of tiny particles we’ve dubbed neutrons, protons, electrons and neutrinos.
But it doesn’t stop there. Now we’re thinking that leptons, along with quarks, are tiniest of particles of all and currently considered ultimate building blocks of nature. Since we keep finding particles inside particles and adding new names to pieces of atoms, it’s easier to refer to smallest chunks into which something can be divided as quanta. The German physicist Max Planck first proposed that energy might come in little pieces called quanta back in early 1900s. So when we talk about quantum theory, we’re just referring to whole set of ideas surrounding microscopic world of atoms.
Along comes Albert Einstein, who recognizes that this whole idea of quantum physics turns classical physics on its head and spins it around. Here all these scientists had developed theories and precise formulas for calculating predictably and consistently ways in which bodies move. Now there’s this idea that little particles actually behave in ways we can’t predict with certainty. These tiny quanta are mysterious. They respond sometimes as particles, and sometimes as waves, and we can’t always tell which way they’re going to go. If a particle is traveling from point A to point B, we can guess its path, but tinier particle, less sure we are that that exact path is one taken. In fact—hold on to your hat here—we’ve come to understand that not only do we not know exact path, but that particles may actually be in two places at once.
What Is Channeling?Written by Skye Thomas
From my earliest memories as a very young child, I have been experiencing various paranormal activities. I had clairvoyant visions and occasionally heard voices, but mostly I "felt" other people's thoughts or feelings. I think my particular niche is labeled as telepathic empath. As one of those kids who always asked, "Why?" I had to find out how all of this worked. Like any kid with a cool new toy, I wanted to feel that rush again and again. How do I make it happen again? From time I first learned how to read, I began my quest for knowledge. What is this and how can I control it? Years later when ghostly presence of my celestial guides invited themselves into my reality, I had to add them to my quest for comprehension. "Who are they and how do I control them?" Here's what I know so far.
Clairvoyant visions are well documented throughout history. We've all heard of people who changed their mind and did not get on Titantic because of an eerie knowingness that something bad was about to happen. Almost every plane crash has same sorts of stories wrapped around it. Many of us have avoided car wrecks and such after hearing, seeing, or feeling oncoming disaster before it happens. So we can pretty much agree that clairvoyance happens. But why? How? Some believe that time does not move in a straight line, but rather it weaves back and forth and around itself. Okay, so does that also explain concept of history continually repeating itself? But that doesn't tell me how I can randomly see a different spot in time other than one I'm supposed to be in? I haven't found anything that definitely tells me how someone can see a past or future piece of time. We only know for sure that it does happen.
Telepathic episodes are probably more common than any other paranormal event. Ever 'feel' someone just before they call you on telephone? I've read stories of mothers who 'felt' their sons die in battle. Scientists have done extensive research in this area. The test that I find amazing is one where they have two people who have never met set up in two different countries. One is to focus on sending other hints, clues, and visions of a particular photograph or painting. The second person is to 'receive' information and decipher it. The receiver then recreates or describes details to scientists. It's set up as a double blind experiment so that scientists with 'receiver' don't know what 'sender' across world is looking at. They've repeated it many times over with quite a few different 'senders' and 'receivers'. We know for sure telepathy does happen, but how?
There is a large group who thinks that it's simply a heightened level of perception. They say that on a subconscious level person experiencing frequent telepathic episodes is really just picking up on hundreds of little clues like body language and pupil dilation. They say that telepath doesn't realize that they've gathered up a bunch of these tiny clues and are actually just coming to a logical prediction as to what person is about to say or do next. That probably is happening most of time on an everyday level. We all know someone with that uncanny ability to 'read' someone, to know what they're about to say. However, that doesn't explain times when person you're 'reading' isn't even in same city as you. How do they explain it then?
Quantum physics is helping us to begin to understand some of inner workings of such things. The current understanding is that thoughts and feelings have an energy, life force, or frequency wave associated with them. What we're trying to figure out is how does that energy get picked up by others and correctly interpreted? The basic theory is that our thoughts are like radio waves and our brains have subtle 'receivers' in them. Therefore, we subconsciously 'read' each other all of time. Wouldn't that explain why we attract to us those things that we put our focus onto? Like attracts like. Different frequencies keep moving on until they find a like-minded frequency? That would also explain telepaths ability to 'read' others. Do they have a supercharged 'receiver'?
It's believed that our thoughts aren't trapped in time like our bodies are. I read somewhere a few years ago that they can still pick up Hitler's broadcasts in airwaves. They're old and fuzzy but they're still out there. Is clairvoyant simply picking up thought frequencies from future? The people on Titantic would have put out hugely intense strong thoughts and nightmare emotions about ship going down. Those thought vibes went out through cosmos and found their way to people about to get onboard Titantic. They 'felt' thought vibes of people drowning in future and then changed their minds about getting on ship? I suspect it's some aspect of that dynamic that makes it possible to telepathically 'read' someone's future or past?
