Consciousness creates reality – quantum physics explains gas after eating yogurt

Isn’t it amazing that we have so many options and potentials that exist and yet we are unaware of them? Is it possible that we are so conditioned to our daily routines and the way we create our lives, that we buy the idea that we have no control at all?

“Consciousness creates reality.” This statement has changed the scientific and medical landscape, and alternative media outlets around the world. Countless scientists study this idea and how it might be correlated with the nature of our reality. It raises the question, what is consciousness?

The notion that “consciousness creates reality” raises so many questions. Does this mean we as individuals (and on a collective level, as one human race) can shape and create whatever reality we’d like for ourselves? Does it mean we can manifest a certain lifestyle, and attract certain experiences?

We know so little still. Although we might not be able to answer these questions with scientific certainty, we do know that yes, a correlation between consciousness and our physical material world does indeed exist in some way. The extent of that correlation is still poorly understood, but we know it’s there, and we know it must have some sort of significance.

A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction.

The Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather to hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.

They had predicted the ratio of the interference pattern’s double slit spectral power to its single slit spectral power would decrease when attention was focused toward the double slit as compared to away from it yet found that factors associated with consciousness “significantly” correlated in predicted ways with perturbations in the double slit interference pattern. In other words, scientists affected the results of the experiment just by observing it.

Although this is one of the most popular experiments used to posit the connection between consciousness and physical reality, there are several other studies that clearly show that consciousness, or factors that are associated with consciousness, directly affect our reality. A number of experiments in the field of parapsychology have also demonstrated this.

Modern day science, especially quantum physics, has been catching up to ancient mysticism and concepts deeply ingrained in various cultures throughout the ancient world. One great example of this is the fact that everything is energy, and nothing is solid.

“Broadly speaking, although there are some differences, I think Buddhist philosophy and Quantum Mechanics can shake hands on their view of the world. We can see in these great examples the fruits of human thinking. Regardless of the admiration we feel for these great thinkers, we should not lose sight of the fact that they were human beings just as we are.”

If we look at the world and examine it on a collective level, what do we see? How do we perceive it? Right now, the masses believe a ‘normal life’ means going to school, paying bills, raising a family, and finding a ‘job’ within the current paradigm to support yourself.

Many people on the planet are not resonating with this experience, however. They want change. We’ve been repeating and perceiving our reality this way for a very long time, as though we are drones trained to accept things the way they are; to not question what is happening in our world and to continue on with the status quo, only caring for ourselves and our own lives.

As Noam Chomsky would say, our consent has been manufactured. If we continue down this path and continue to perceive and view reality as “this is just the way it is,” we will, in essence, prolong that type of existence and experience for the human race without ever changing it. In order to create and manifest a new reality for ourselves, our thought patterns and the way we perceive reality must change. What changes the way we perceive reality? Information. When new information emerges, it changes the way we look at things and, as a result, our reality changes too, and we begin to manifest a new experience and open our minds to a broader view of reality.

What’s also important about teachings from new physics is that, if consciousness creates reality, that means change starts within. It starts with the way in which we are observing the outer world from our inner world. This touches on the earlier point of how we perceive our reality.

Our perception of the external world might very well be a reflection of our inner world, our inner state of being. So, ask yourself, are you happy? Are you observing, perceiving, and acting from a place of love? Or from a place of hate or anger?

I believe that the human race is in the process of waking up to a number of different things at once, and as a result, the way we perceive and “observe” the world around us (on a mass scale) is shifting drastically. So, if you want to help change the world, change the way you look at things, and the things you look at will change.

Lord Kelvin made this statement in 1900 and was proven wrong only five years later when Einstein published his paper on special relativity. The new theories proposed by Einstein challenged the current framework of understanding and forced the scientific community to consider new ideas about our world. This stands as a great example of how things that once were regarded as truth can and do change.

“Lord Kelvin’s statements bares with it the voice of paradigms past. . . . We knew that the Earth was flat, we knew that we were the centre of the universe, and we knew that a manmade heavier-than-air piece of machinery could not take flight.

Are we really any different today? Have we really changed our acceptance towards things that won’t fit the frame? Maybe there are concepts of our reality we have yet to understand, and if we open our eyes maybe we will see that something significant has been overlooked.”
