I don’t know about you, but Quantum Physics (or Quantum Mechanics) has a strange fascination for me. They say that particles can be in more than one place at a time. If something isn’t being observed, it can exist simultaneously in multiple locations. Does that mean, if I take my car into the garage and leave; quantum mechanics everywhere are waiting to observe it? And how much extra will that cost me? 🙂
There are multiple universes/realities where, literally, all sorts of possibilities are taking place. Also, you can’t observe something without changing it, basically to what you expect will happen. There’s no such thing as a passive observer! And Time isn’t linear, it’s horizontal. In effect, everything is happening NOW. That means you’re reading this at the same time I’m writing it! Oh, and thanks for all the ‘Likes’ and positive comments about this article. Now I’m pushing it! 😉
They say that everything exists in potential. When it is focused upon enough by an observer, it will form into matter. You are the observer, so everything you want already exists. You decide by your focus which of the potentials get to make it to your “reality”. So maybe the Law of Attraction should actually be called the Law of Filtration! Everything is there for us, but we filter into being, that which we expect to see – based on our own conditioning.
Reality is all about our own perception.
For instance, you’re not what you eat. You are what you feel about what you eat. You can’t be healthy if you don’t feel healthy on the inside – whatever your lifestyle.
So the message is, “Go Within”. The way to change our external circumstances is through internal transformation. Change the way we think and feel about ourselves, on a daily basis. We have to grow to become the thing we wish to receive. As Gandhi said, “You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
In case you’d like a better explanation about Quantum Physics from someone who’s an expert – try any of the ‘Dr Quantum’ books by Dr Fred Alan Wolf. The combination of his knowledge as a physicist, his spiritual insights and quirky sense of humour, make his books a must-read.

It’s hard to escape the lure of millions of possibilities that are borne from the Quantum sciences! 🙂
“Schrodinger’s cat” introduced me to this concept. Wow. I’m glad to have read this post because it’s most likely the best reminder I’ve had in months. I can ride this wave for the whole weekend…Thanks!
Thanks for the positive comments.
Being a physicist I could not refrain from comment.. and also comment about your car. As soon as you have locked your garage the car can be anywhere (or slowly dissipate away), The probability is so low though so the earth would disappear before the car. But as soon as you open the garage the car is there and nowhere else. The reason is that you have made an observation. The fact that we observe and measure actually remove the possibilities of quantum mechanics to have any effect. This actually puts the observer in key position which I find quite alluring actually. Thank you for visiting my blog every now and then 🙂
Thank you for a physicist’s perspective, Bjorn! I’m definitely a layman, but my understanding is that what we observe depends on what we expect to see. If we generally expect positives that’s what we find, and vice versa. That does put us in a key position! Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy your haiku blog – a great combination of memorable images and words.
I have personally experienced the horisontal time line. It became apparent to me when I got a young man ten million dollars by the power of the sixth sense. Everything had to happen in perfect timing to make the ten million a reality. All the actions I took happened over a years period of time without me seeing the connection. You can read the details in my memoir: The Magic of Reading: May Your Grandest Dreams appear!
