“Take the seemingly undeniable logic that your kitchen is always there, its contents assuming its familiar forms whether or not you’re in it. At night you leave for the bedroom. Of course the kitchen is still there, unseen, all through the night. Right? But consider: the refrigerator, stove and everything else are composed of a shimmering swarm of matter/energy. Quantum theory, tells us not a single one of those particles actually exists in a definite place.” Robert Lanza M.D.’s post, “Is There a God or Is There Nothingness?” explores the new scientific paradigm, and tells of experiments that show that measurements an observer makes can even influence events that have already happened in the past. “Regardless of the choice you make, it’ll be you (the observer) who experience the outcomes and histories that result.”
So, what we see, what is ‘real’, is what we pay attention to. We should therefore focus on what it is that we want to see, not what we imagine. Rather than worrying about what might be in the kitchen you have just walked away from, concentrate on where you are now and see the shimmering swarm of matter/energy that is before your eyes. It too might disappear if you change your focus.
