Quantum physics and Spirituality

This experiment in quantum physics named the “double slit” experiment shows that mater as perceived by a “normal” human being is not so in “reality.”

Most human beings will perceive matter as “particles.” However, as we can see in this experiment a particle could be a “wave” as well. This paradox has been named the “wave–particle duality.” If you would like to know more about this, please read this wiki article.

By watching this practical video, we can see that everything depends on the observer who is “measuring” what appears to be “reality.”

How is that related with spirituality?
Spirituality had the answer long ago. There is a pre-ordained Drama which moves everything from the quantum level of the electron through a particle. This is something which Science hasn’t quite figure it out.

There is also a “role” which perceives and observes the things happening in the Drama in a particular way. That role is within the Drama.

Observation based on expectation (as in the experiment) is not observing but inferring, thinking.

This is the same phenomena that a human being displays. When we observe life, when we observe our own inner world; we already have an expectation of “what to get out of it.”

If “I” observe “my thoughts,” it is so I can get rid of my wasteful thinking. That is an expectation which will not allow me to observe.
This is why, reality as it is or “truth” could be observed when that “I” is not there, for otherwise; there is thought and with that thinking there is an entity called the “me” manipulating information based on previous experiences.

To understand this principle of duality means to understand the principle of “being and non-being.” A person immersed in spirituality, may want to consider the following points:

1) what “I” observe is not necessarily real.
2) What my logic and reasoning are able to find as “facts,” are not necessarily true.
3) There is a paradoxical quality in very phenomena in life, so if “I” attach myself to a particular belief or concept; “I” will be missing the other side which duality brings. There is the reality of the concept but also the reality of the “no-concept.”
4) As long as there is “I” there cannot be the whole picture. “Truly” observing is not possible.
5) The way we have perceived the world as emphasized by “traditional” physics, mathematics, history and any other source of human knowledge is not truly real, for the “I” has been lingering in that observation. This is what is commonly known as “biased” perception.
6) This is the reason why we should not be attached to a concept or perception of the senses, for it is a half-truth as best.
7) Egolessness is the way to observe without bias.

A drop of water belongs to the Ocean just like a human being to the Drama of life. To feel separated as “me” different from life, means not to see the “reality” of being the same thing at the same time.

    This is a wonderful messages and video demonstrate the quantum physic phenomenon and spirituality worth to understand so we shall lead this life valuable, peaceful and benefit for all mankind. What ever we see by this eyes is not real but the reality is in the consciousness of how we perceive in our mind and intellect. To understand this principle of duality means to understand the principle of “being and non-being.” We appreciate all the conclusion:

      Great! 🙂
      Thank you very much for having taken the time to comment and to contribute with such great detail… It is truly appreciated!
      All the best to you! 🙂

      Reality is a perception. What you see is not the “real thing” but a perception. Your eyes are capable on seeing something in a particular way. Seeing then is based on the capabilities of the instrument of perception. If you would, play with this “idea” then the rest will come to you slowly.
      “Science” is just another perception of reality and so “Spirituality.”
      All the best!

        Thanx for that 🙂 but the Vedio seems a bit confusing a wave particle goes back to little matter because it was aware of observation now what if we consider one active observer and one passive observer simultaneously ..means let us consider 2 separete observer like you and me when doing the experiment simultaneously when particle when I see from the distance the particle will have wave pattern and you observe beside slit you will expience particle going back to normal does that means we has simultaneous observation in different perception ?

        The experiment has different interpretations. The one you saw in the video may belong to Fred Alan Wolf.
        From my view, this experiment only supports that the way we perceive things is according to the location of our consciousness. That “location” does not mean physical distance necessarily.
        For example: Look at a tree while seating on a bench in the park. Do you think that what you see is “real”? It is only a “reality” from your location, but if you go and sit under the tree, what you see will be different than from the bench. Right? So which view is the “real” view of the tree? None of them but yet both views are correct as well.
        Now, if we believe that what we see is “real” then, we are assuming that there are no other ways of Seeing. We are bound by our senses to perceive physical matter. We are bound to our consciousness to perceive reality.

        Every quantic element exhibits the properties of a particle and a wave at the same time. Thus, it depends on the observer to catalog things as “particle or wave.”
