After writing about hope last week, synchronicity led me to the related theme of possibility in this talk by Dr. Amit Goswami, Professor of Physics at the University of Oregon’s Institute of Theoretical Science for over 30 years (now retired) and currently Senior Scholar in Residence, Institute of Noetic Sciences. Dr. Goswami is exploring what he calls Quantum Activism, the applicaton of principles of quantum theory to life in our world of appearances. He defines “objects,” that is, everything we encounter and experience as external to ourselves, as waves of possibility in the quantum sea. He is exploring the view that consciousness is the ground of everything. This isn’t a new idea by any means. What’s fascinating is that he is doing this from the perspective of contemporary physics. And he is specifically interested in how an understanding of quantum theories can be related to health and healing.

He also has something to say about the blueprint:

“Health, as I will show, is when not only the physical organs function properly, but also when all our other ‘subtle bodies’ function properly. Physical health is defined not only by the proper functioning of the physical organs, but also by the proper functioning of their correlated morphogenetic fields”¦The role of consciousness in biological programming can now be elucidated. Indeed, the organs are physical representations of the morphogenetic fields that consciousness uses as blueprints of biological functions to represent the latter in the physical.”

For those of you as fascinated by the quantum world as I am, here’s another good article, a review of the new bookDecoding Reality: The Universe as Quantum Information, by Vlatko Vedral, a physicist who is working with the theory that “information is at the root of everything.” (Thanks to Frank Lopez in San Francisco for this reference).

A universe of energy/information/consciousness: more and more scientists are acknowledging the possibility of this reality. I guess I could say… Welcome. We’ve been waiting for you.

    Watching What the Bleep – which he is on (and rewatching it every so often) is a fascinating experience, so much of it resonates for me. I am particularly intrigued by the idea that our brains reflect our thoughts from the Field, instead of our thoughts being stored in the brain itself. Thanks for the new book reference, I am indeed as fascinated as you are by the quantum world! And, I hope this makes sense, it is pre-dawn here in Tally town!

    Makes total sense. Here’s another of my favorite quotes from Ervin Laszlo, systems theorist, “Science and the Akashic Field” – “”The physical world is a reflection of energy vibrations from more subtle worlds that, in turn, are reflections of still more subtle energy fields. Creation, and all subsequent existence, is a progression downward and outward from the primordial source.” He’s saying everything happens in the larger field first, and then is reflected at this material level…Or maybe we can’t even say first and second, because it’s all so “entangled” and simultaneous.

    Thanks, Hiro 🙂 And if there’s any questions or themes you’d like to see discussed, let me know! The conference where the video was done was really a good weekend -lots of interest in SourcePoint Therapy.
