We Are Made of Energy Not Matter
The new science accepts that the universe, including us, is made up of energy, not matter. Matter is the lowest frequency of vibrational energy. This is not actually new information. It was put forth by Socrates the Greek Philosopher way back among the ancients, and also by the ancient Rishis in India thousands of years before that.
Socrates said that energy, or Soul, is separate from matter, and that the universe is made of energy – pure Absolute Source energy which was there before man and other material things like the earth came along. However at the end of the seventeenth century Newtonian physics became the corner-stone of science, and it was based on the theory that there is only matter and nothing else. In other words, the whole universe is a machine, made of matter, and so are we. Medical science is still stuck in the Newtonian concept, even though the rest of science has now moved on to quantum physics ... which is continuing to disprove the Newtonian theories. This is what science is truly about ... learning and continuing to discover. Always in flux.
Quantum physics says that as you go deeper and deeper into the workings of the atom, you see that there is nothing there ... just energy waves. It says an atom is actually an invisible force field, a kind of miniature tornado, which emits waves of electrical energy.
Those energy waves can be measured and their effects seen, but they are not a "material" reality, they have no substance because they are… well, just electricity. So science now embraces the idea that the entire universe is made of energy. Among the ancients, Thoth/Hermes established a certain set of immutable Laws, and established Hermetics. One of his Laws was Mentalism. That all the universe is Mind/Mental.
We are all of course made up of atoms. And atoms are continuously giving off, and absorbing, light and energy, all the time. It doesn’t stop even when we sleep. Every cell in the body has its atoms lined up in such a way that it has a negative and a positive voltage, inside and outside.
This is an aspect of the Law of Polarity. So every cell in our body is a miniature battery. Each cell has 1.4 volts of energy – not much, but when you multiply by the number of cells in your body (50 trillion) you get a total voltage of 700 trillion volts of electricity in your body.
Pretty powerful stuff. This is what the Chinese call ‘chi’, and is also the energy used in hands on healing (and Reiki). It can even be measured outside the body for a certain radius, depending on the sophistication of the instrument. And guess which has the stronger electro-magnetic energy field ... your head or your heart? I'll tell you in a few minutes, until then keep following me on this.
Now here is another interesting fact which relates to our lives… Each atom has its own distinct frequency, or vibration. Quantum physicists study the energetic effect when atoms collide, not their ‘matter’. What they see is that when two atomic waves meet, they either meet in sync, creating a constructive or harmonious effect, or they meet out of sync, creating a destructive effect in which they annul each other. This is a very interesting and important find.
Dr Bruce Lipton, a former professor of medicine at Harvard University and author of the best-selling ‘Your mind is greater than your genes’, explains that if you drop two equal pebbles at exactly the same time into water, from the same height, they will both produce the same wave ripples. In other words, their waves will be in harmony with each other, and when their ripples meet the combined effect will be an amplification of the wavelength – the merged waves become more powerful. But if you drop the pebbles from different heights or a millisecond apart, then when the resultant waves meet they will not be in harmony and will cancel each other out – the waves become weaker. You can try this out for yourself. Simple, but quite interesting.
Exactly the same thing happens when atomic energy waves meet ... they either have a constructive effect (become more powerful) or a destructive effect. Now, we are all created of atomic energy waves, and because it is impossible to separate waves, the new science says what Spiritualists was saying years ago: we are all connected - our waves are always meeting and getting entangled in each other. Dr Lipton says the result of such invisible meetings we call ‘good vibes’ and ‘bad vibes’, depending on whether the other waves we meet are in sync with us ... or out of sync. No wonder so many people are ‘magnetically attracted’ or repelled by others. They either feel peaceful and harmonious, or uneasy and out of harmony. If you've ever heard an orchestra play out of tune, or a singer out of tune, it is an unpleasant experience to say the least.
This means it is important to be aware of whether you are in an environment where you are getting entangled in DESTRUCTIVE energy waves or CONSTRUCTIVE energy waves. The cells that make up our bodies know instinctively what is nourishing and what is toxic. It is our creature default. They just KNOW.
In fact all animals and plants communicate through vibrations, i.e. by sensing whether the energy is good for them or not. But we have been taught not to listen to our inner feelings (Inner voice of our Higher-Self) or instincts/intuition, but instead to what people say.
So we are not trained to use our ability to sense energy, even though we have it just as all plants and animals have. Practice some deep work with your awareness through your senses. This is great way to get back in touch with your natural instincts and intuition so you can have more awareness of when you are in a nourishing or a draining situation.
According to Osho (Indian Mystic, Guru & Spiritual Teacher), the first thing is that in this world, matter and consciousness are not two separate things. What we call matter ... is consciousness asleep, and what we know as consciousness ... is matter awakened.
In reality, matter and consciousness are not different; they are different manifestations of the same thing. Existence is one, and that one is godliness or brahman or whatsoever you want to call it. When that one is asleep it appears as matter, and when awake it is consciousness. So don’t treat matter and consciousness as separate entities; they are only utilitarian terms. They are not really different.
Even science has come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as matter. How amusing it is that fifty years ago Nietzsche declared that God is dead, and fifty years from now science will have to declare that God may or may not be dead but matter is certainly dead. As science goes deeper and deeper into matter it finds that matter is no more ... and only energy (Spirit) remains, only energy exists.
What remains after the explosion or splitting of the atom is only particles of energy. And what we know as electrons, protons and neutrons are particles of electricity. In fact, it is not correct to call them particles, because particles imply matter.
The scientists had to find a new word, which is quanta, which has a different connotation altogether. Quanta is both a particle and a wave. It is difficult to comprehend how something could be both a particle and a wave simultaneously, but quanta is both. Sometimes it behaves as a particle – which is matter; and sometimes it behaves as a wave – which is energy. Wave and energy are behaviors of the same quanta.
When science dug deep it found that only energy is, and when spirituality delved deep it found that only spirit, or Atman, or Soul is. And soul is energy.
The time is just around the corner when a synthesis of science and religion will be achieved, and the distance that separates them will simply disappear. When the gap between matter and Truth has proved to be false, the gap between science and religion cannot exist for long. If matter and consciousness are not two, how can religion and science be two? The separation of science and religion was dependent on the separation of matter and consciousness.
To me, only one is; two simply don’t exist. There is no place for duality; so the question of matter and consciousness does not arise. If you like the language of matter, you can say that everything is matter. And if you like the language of consciousness, you can say that everything is consciousness. I for one prefer the language of consciousness. Why do I prefer it? Because, in my view, one should always prefer the language of the higher, which has greater potential; one should not prefer the language of the lower, where potential is less and less.
Consciousness asleep is matter, and consciousness awakened is consciousness. All is consciousness, either way you present it.
Just a thought ...
