We look around us using our physical sense of sight, and see objects that appear as solids. We can easily identify where one object ends and another begins. We can even say that when it comes to ourselves, our skin is where “we” end and “out there” begins. But this is completely untrue. And Quantum Physics proves it.
“Space is just a construct that gives the illusion that there are separate objects” – Dr. Quantum
What we perceive to be solid objects are in fact at an atomic level, not so solid at all. In fact, atoms are 99.999999999999% empty space! This can be a mind-numbing idea if one is to say, punch a brick wall or even simply go sit on a chair as we can feel the wall we punch and the chair we sit on. But the truth is, your fist never actually hits the wall and your bum never actually hits the chair. What you are feeling is merely pressure…forces interacting at an atomic level and your nerve endings are simply reacting. How so? Because everything that appears solid are again full of atoms. These atoms are surrounded by shells of electrons that cause them to push away from one another.
One could ask why the entire Universe doesn’t just blow up and away from itself then, right? That’s because most electron shells are not full and as atoms come in close contact with one another, electrons actually go back and forth between atoms, and quite quickly may I add, filling each atoms empty spaces (atoms are excellent sharers!).
So, what does this have to do with you? And how does this prove that you…are everywhere? Well, the activity of our little electron friends is what most of us know as “energy” and it comprises of what we, and everything else in the entire Universe, are made of at an atomic level. This constant exchange between those busy little electrons is within us all and can even be measured well outside the barrier of our skin. In fact, the human energy field expands out about 3-6 feet outside of the physical body!
And because this energy is free-flowing from atom to atom, this field allows us to “pick up on” other people’s energy; i.e. “feel out” a person. It even explains that sense in your gut when you first meet a person that either attracts or repels you to or away from them. It also sheds light on the term “personal space” as it can feel quite invasive when someone brings their energy into your own energy space without your permission. You literally feel them pushing their energy onto you. Or in other words, you feel the electrons in their energy field impressing on your own.
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
– Nikola Tesla
Everything in the Universe is energy. That wall you punched and your now bruised fist…both are energy. But what is fascinating is they never even touched one another. The atoms in the wall were simply vibrating at a different speed/level than that of your fist, so when you directed your fist to the wall, they repelled and an electric, not material (as we are learning “matter” is illusory) reaction and repulsion occurred. The same occurs when you believe you are sitting on a chair. You are actually levitating on an atomic level!
So, we can now conclude from that fact that everything is energy (and since we are part of that everything) and energy is everywhere…that WE must also be everywhere and with that a part of ONE unified whole. Ponder that for a moment, and then think of how petty personal differences seem when you realize we are all the same on such a grander scale.
Science is now opening doors of consciousness it used to shun. And quantum physics is shining the light on the path to our future understanding of who we really are and just how connected we are to the vast expanse; furthermore…to the understanding that we ARE the vast expanse.
