Law of Attraction Part 2 – The Science behind the Law of Attraction

Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.

Albert Einstein

In support of the universal Law of Attraction, I would like to offer a brief historical overview of the paradigm shifting discoveries made by quantum physics over the last 85 years. For those who have heard the term but do not know specifically what it studies, quantum physics is the branch of science whose purpose it is to investigate the behaviour of particles, at the subatomic level.

The repercussions of the 19279 Copenhagen Congress, which marks the birth of quantum physics, are so profound, that they have only just begun to ripple into our entrenched Newtonian perceptions of reality. So monumental were the results of the discoveries that it prompted the following remarks from two of its participants. One of the most important astrophysicists of his time, Sir Arthur Eddington, is quoted as saying the following: “We can, perhaps say, that the conclusion to draw from these arguments of modern science is that, religion has become possible for a reasonable scientist around 1927. (1) The Nobel laureate, Werner Heisenberg, one of the pioneers of quantum physics and the author of the famous Principle of Uncertainty had this to say: « Keeping in mind the intrinsic stability of normal language concepts during the course of scientific evolution, we see that- after the experience of modern physics- our attitude towards concepts like the human mind, the soul, life or God will be different than what they were in the XIX th century.(2)

One of quantum physics’ earliest and most shocking findings, was that an electron can manifest as either a particle or a wave. The single category known as wave-particles were baptised quanta. This chameleon like ability is common to all subatomic particles, of which all matter is constituted. It is therefore common to all things. Light, gamma rays, radio waves, X rays- all can change from waves to particles and back again.(3) Even more incredible, it was found that these quanta only coalesce into particles when they are being observed (The observer effect). The comments made by Eddington and Heisenberg, regarding religion, the soul and God is based on the assumption that subatomic events are somehow interconnected, an assumption made by one of the founding fathers of quantum physics, the Danish physicist Niels Bohr. Bohr pointed out that “if subatomic particles only come into existence in the presence of an observer, then it is also meaningless to talk about a particle’s properties and characteristics as existing before they are observed. (4) This, of course, didn’t sit well with many of the physicists, for the very nature of science itself requires the observation of phenomena. Experimental science would thereby be put in jeopardy.

The findings that particles only exist when observed, when combined with another quantum discovery, namely that some subatomic processes (through positronium decay) result in the creation of a pair of particles (photons) with identical or closely related properties, implied that subatomic particles were interconnected. Albert Einstein had a problem with Bohr’s conclusion of instantaneous communication because it would invalidate his special theory of relativity, that states that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, let alone instantaneously. Such a view of reality would break the time barrier and open up all kinds of paradoxes. (5) Einstein and two colleagues challenged this quantum view of reality with the now famous Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox in 1935.

David Bohm, a former protégé of Einstein’s and one of the world’s most respected quantum physicists, intrigued by the bizarre state of interconnectedness that existed between apparently unrelated subatomic events, over time developed a theory based on holograms, now known as three-dimensional images projected into space with the aid of a laser. Later joined by Stanford neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, one of the architects of our modern understanding of the brain – Bohm concluded that the universe itself might well be a giant hologram, a three dimensional image or construct, created, at least, in part, by the human mind. David Bohm’s holographic universe is premised upon quantum physics’ earliest findings. “ In Bohm’s interpretation of the sub-quantum level, the level in which the quantum potential operates, location ceased to exist. All points in space became equal to all other points in space.(6) Physicists call this property “non-locality”. The non-local aspect of quantum physics allowed Bohm to explain the connection between twin particles without violating Einstein’s special theory of relativity, with regards to travelling faster than the speed of light. In 1952, theoretical physicist, John Stuart Bell became fascinated by Bohm’s proposal that there were variables in addition to those that other physicists already knew about. After many years of thought, he came up with a theorem in 1964 to experimentally verify the EPR paradox, that is now called Bell’s theorem. But it wasn’t until the 1980’s that technology allowed for Bell’s theorem to be tested.

In 1982, a team of physicists under Alain Aspect at the Institute of Optics at the University of Paris succeeded in the two-particle experiment outlined by Bell. The success of their experiment meant that either Einstein’s faster than light restrictions were being violated or that the two photons were non-locally connected. Since most physicists are opposed to admitting faster than light processes into physics, Aspect’s experiment is regarded as virtual proof that the connections between the two photons is non-local.(7) However, Aspect’s experiment, repeated in 1997 by Nicholas Gisin, demonstrate a speed far in excess of the speed of light. « In Aspect’s experiment, the communication between particles twelve meters apart was estimated at less than one billionth of a second, about twenty times the speed at which light travels in empty space, while in Gisin’s experiment, particles ten km apart appeared to be in communication 20,000 times faster than the velocity of light, relativity theory’s supposedly unbreakable speed barrier. (8)» Then, in 2011, a team of physicists at the particle accelerator of the Cern, in Geneva, Switzerland, made public to the world their findings, regarding neutrinos having travelled 711km to a station in Gran Sasso, Italy, at a speed exceeding the speed of light.

The implications of Aspect’s Paris experiment, confirming the original conclusions of quantum mechanics and leading up to last year’s Geneva announcement, opens the door to a new, non-dualistic model of reality, validating David Bohm’s holographic universe theory, in which holism or unity through our thoughts and our consciousness is the ultimate reality. Physicist William Tiller, head of the Department of Material Science at Stanford University supports Bohm’s holographic idea and compares the universe to the “holodeck” on the T.V. show Star Trek: The Next Generation. What Einstein considered to be “spooky effect at a distance”, has been proven true by physicists, under laboratory conditions and repeated since on numerous occasions.(9) According to scientist Ervin Lazlo, recent experiments (2004) show that particles separated up to 41 km maintain their interconnectedness. In light of these monumental findings, many world renown scientists are calling for a paradigm change in science that would completely alter our view of reality. David Bohm’s model is finding the support of such eminent people as Roger Penrose of Oxford, the creator of the modern theory of the Black Hole, Bernard d’Espagnat, of the University of Paris, one of the world’s leading authorities on the conceptual foundations of quantum theory, and Cambridge’s Brian Josephson, winner of the 1973 Nobel Prize in Physics. Josephson, believes that Bohm’s implicate order, may someday even lead to the inclusion of God or Mind within the framework of science.(10) Which is an idea, already forecast, in 1927, by the founding fathers of quantum physics.
