Physicists and Their Dilemma
Okay, we left off right in the middle of something yesterday, and it was this: Physicists have a problem. It seems that what they have been devoting their lives to in studying may be something which isn’t exactly real. Physical matter- they have been finding out- to their astonishment- isn’t really physical. Now that’s an oversimplification of course, but it’s the crux of the problem they face- if it’s not what they thought it was- if they find that matter isn’t really made of physical stuff- then what the heck IS it? Yet, there are some things that they can determine about what we see as to how it should behave and why- but experiments have shown that the core building blocks of what we thought things were made of- well, in short- they don’t exactly exist in solid form until we interact with them.
We realize this is getting too deep for most people, so we’ll just let the scientists tell it as they see it, a bit more:
“The common sense view of the world, in terms of objects that really exist ‘out there’ independently of our observations, totally collapses in the face of the quantum factor” – Nobel Prize winner Physicist Niels Bohr
And now from a word from one of the key creators of quantum field theory…
“The hope that new experiments will lead us back to objective events in time and space is about as well founded as the hope of discovering the end of the world in the unexplored regions of the Antarctic.” – Physicist Werner Heisenberg
Naturally, scientists are in a very uncomfortable place- and while we could go on allowing their own quotes to beat them up some more- you get the idea. Our role here is to lay the foundation for what comes next- the importance and implications of the non-physical laws. Remember that the physical apparently only seems physical to us because we observe it to be that way. All of our observations, however, come to our so-called physical minds as data in wires we call nerves. Science is showing, more and more, that even those things we think are rock solid and real are made up of nothing more than mere non-physical bits of information. Even us. Does that freak you out? Does that scare you? It shouldn’t. We’d like to explain why but- – – Dang! We’re coming to the end of the page and we haven’t yet put it all together yet.
What we’ve covered thus far is running just about the opposite of what most of us believed. Even the very religious or very faithful among us were pretty much always under the impression that the world was real and maybe also that a place like Heaven was a dream-like place. Let’s ask a potent question then, for today, shall we? (We’re not trying to be religious here, only to present this concept in terms we are already familiar with)
Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves
“If our reality isn’t real, yet Heaven is, would that be such a bad thing?”
