Today’s topic of conversation, between my husband (Jeff) and I, was a rather mind-boggling one. We were discussing whether we are actually real. It went downhill and a bit mind boggling from there I’m afraid……………………….
Jeff had just finished listening to Deepak Chopra, on YouTube, who offers a theory that when we look at a human being we are not actually seeing a human being, as we are not real. Now, I have not viewed the podcast, and given my state of mental musing overload, from our odd theoretical debate, I may leave that one for another day.
So, given my husbands synopsis of Deepak’s talk, I interjected a few “out there” spanners in to the tool box.
Lets say he is right and we are not “real”, then what on earth are we?
Could one singular Source/Higher Being/The Divine/God etc. be every single one of us, using us to experience every known experience? Could the reality we perceive - every tree, every animal, every human, every atom, every microscopic proton particle - be a complete fabrication and the world, we have been “told” to see, is just some kind of dimensional matrix created by this one source? If it where fact would it make you feel empowered, free, cheated or pointless?
OK then, how about this one:
We are, at this specific moment in time, living our lives in several parallel universe’s. We could be running alongside our “other lives”, experiencing different things, all at the same time. If we do have multiple, simultaneous lives could the multi-parallel universe be our back-up plan, and therefore if we go off course we could, in theory, quantum leap from one moment to another.
Quantum mechanics, I am led to believe, is the science that explains why things are the way they are, how they work and how they react (OK, that was ubber clumsily basic!). The scientist have proven – which I use in the lightest term possible - that a change to one atom, which has become “related” or “entangled” with another atom, directly affects the behaviour of said atom – regardless of the distance between the two. With that in mind, and the fact that quantum scientists believe that everything in the universe is all made up of the same stuff, AND if every affected atom across the universe directly affects another atom, then are we not all connected to everything within the universe?
So, if we are all connected to everything in the universe, and throwing probability into the mix, and the knowledge that quantum leap actually happens, can we not connect on a more telepathic level, and thus could our brain waves actually connect to other brain waves? My husband said that he has had increasing occurrences where he has thought about someone and, for a very split nano second, he has felt that he is that person. Mmmmm………interesting.
Anyhow………I am toying with a few other possibilities at the mo, but for now I think my cerebral cortex needs a time out.
I must add these snippets are more “what if’s….” and are not my actual beliefs. But I do hope it has given you a bit of food for thought, and I would absolutely love to hear your thoughts and ideas.
