Quantum Physics: The Science of Conflict Resolution
By simple definition, the term conflict represents an incompatibility between two or more opinions, principles, or interests. The nature of conflict goes back time immemorial, in the biblical sense, starting with the story of Cain and Abel.
However, the field of science did not officially weigh in on the subject of conflict until the founding of physics by Sir Isaac Newton in the late 1600’s. In defining the mechanisms of the Universe, Newtonian principles separated the spiritual (energetic) plane from the physical realm, and in the process, created a polarity that is still brewing, the conflict between Science and Religion.
Newtonian physics further expanded the realm of conflict by acknowledging that objects in the material realm represented separate discrete entities. For example, the computer and you are two distinct and separate entities that appear to be independent of one another; or for example, the period at the end of this sentence is separate and distinct from the periods at the end of the previous sentence or the end of the following sentence. Newtonian science emphasized that material objects could be separated from one another and studied independently.
In assessing the Universe on this principle, the material world is perceived to be made up of a myriad of individual objects, many of which can display characteristics that make them appear to be polar opposites. In scientific assessments, humans can be separated and studied as independent individuals or they can be collectively assigned into categories. On the basis of racial character, for example, individuals can be grouped into categories representing black, brown, white, yellow, or red populations.
Racial “groups” can be further catalogued based on subjective characteristics of strengths and weaknesses, including traits such as intelligence, physical empowerment, and ethics. It is the perception of “different” amongst the groups that has been the historic foundation for creating and justifying conflict; women vs men, whites vs blacks, settlers vs indigenous natives, Jews vs Muslims, the list goes on.
The culture’s emphasis on “separate” was officially invalidated in 1925 when the world was introduced to a new science, Quantum Physics. The formerly separated energetic (spiritual) and material realms were unified when physicists recognized that material atoms were actually a “condensed” form of energy; physicality is an illusion!
Atoms, comprised of energy vortices, spin and generate “waves” of an electromagnetic field. A useful analogy is to consider the rain drops and the ripples they create in the pool of water illustrated below. Each rain drop represents a spinning atom and the radiating ripples it creates represent the electromagnetic energy waves that radiate from each atom.
The profound point: The ripples from each drop of water across the whole surface of the pool are all interconnected. Likewise, the energy from each atom comprising our perception of matter is connected to the energy waves emitted by every other atom in the Universe! The Universe is a unity of energy where everything is connected and entangled. The Universe cannot be divided into separate elements. All is one! What we define as separate polarizing elements, are in reality a gradient within a unity. For example, black and white are NOT separate entities, they are part of single gradient comprised of a billion different shades of gray.
Newtonian science emphasizes individuality, while quantum physics emphasizes unity. The profound point here is to consider the question, “Do we have the option of choosing one of these opposing views of the Universe’s physics over the other?” The answer is NO for two reasons: 1) Quantum physics has been proven to be the most valid and truthful of all sciences on planet Earth, and 2) Newtonian physics represents a small subset of principles built into the field of quantum physics.
This conclusion is most important in that the “unity” emphasized in quantum physics is the metric by which the Universe works. If we want to live in harmony and health, we must own from the core of our being that we are one with the Universe. We must live with the reality that we are not separate “individuals,” we are *Humans First!
This month’s video is a wonderful example of how the quantum physics universe can be used to resolve the nearly 200-year-old conflict between the proponents of Creationism and those favoring Evolution. Combining these apparently polar opposite philosophies, creates a harmony with which we can all live and enjoy in the absence of conflict!
