The Strangest Science of All!
by Gregg Braden –
Fact: Belief is a language that “speaks” to this matrix!
Scientific evidence now reveals that belief affects everything from the healing of our bodies to the atoms of Reality itself! What could be more important than understanding how to use such an awesome power to reverse disease, create peace and abundance and even change Reality itself? In a world where the greatest crises of recorded human history now threaten our survival, the stakes couldn’t be higher.
For a scientist, what could be any stranger than discovering that by simply watching our world in one place we’ve somehow changed what happens somewhere else? Yet this is precisely what the revelations of the new physics are showing us. As far back as 1935, Noble Prize-winning physicist Albert Einstein acknowledged just how unsettling such quantum effects can be, calling them “spooky action at a distance.” In a paper that he co-authored with noted physicists Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen, he stated, “No reasonable definition of reality could be expected to permit this [action at a distance].”
Today, it’s precisely these bizarre anomalies that have ignited a powerful revolution in the way we think of ourselves, as well as the universe. For the better part of the 20th century, scientists struggled to understand what quantum strangeness is telling us about the way reality works. It’s a documented fact, for example, that human consciousness influences quantum energy-the stuff everything is made of-under certain conditions. And that fact has opened the door to a possibility that pushes the limits of what we’ve been led to believe about our world in the past. A growing body of evidence now suggests that these unexpected effects are more than just isolated exceptions. The question is how much more?
Are the effects of observers, influencing their experiments, actually a powerful window into the kind of reality we live in? And, if so, then we must ask, “Are those effects also telling us who we are within that reality?” The answer to both questions is “yes.” These are precisely the conclusions that the new discoveries suggest.
There Are No Watchers
Scientists have shown that while we may think we’re only watching and observing our world, in fact, it’s impossible for us to simply “watch” anything. Whether our attention is focused on a quantum particle during a laboratory experiment or anything else, from the healing of our body to the success of our careers and relationships, we have expectations and beliefs about what we’re watching. Sometimes we’re consciously aware of our expectations and beliefs. But oftentimes we’re not. It’s these inner experiences that become part of what we’re focused on. By “watching” we become part of what we’re watching.
In the words of physicist John Wheeler, that makes us all “participators.” The reason? When we focus our attention on a given place in a moment of time, we involve our consciousness. And in the vast field of consciousness it appears that there’s no clear boundary that tells us where we stop and the rest of the world begins. When we think of the world this way, it becomes clear why the ancients believed that everything is connected. As energy, it is.
As scientists continue to explore just what it means to be participators, new evidence points to an inescapable conclusion: That we live in an interactive reality where we change the world around us by changing what happens inside of us while we’re watching-our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.
Belief Code 1: Experiments show that the focus of our attention changes reality itself and suggest that we live in an interactive universe.
The Implication: From the healing of disease and the length of our lives, to the success of our careers and relationships, everything that we experience as “life” is directly linked to what we believe.
The Bottom Line: To change our lives and relationships, heal our bodies and bring peace to our families and nations requires a simple yet precise shift in the way we use belief.
For those who accept what science has led us to believe for the last 300 years, even to consider that our inner experience can affect reality, is nothing short of heresy.
The very idea blurs the safety zone that has traditionally separated science and spirituality-and us from our world. Rather than thinking of ourselves as passive victims in a place where, for example, things just “happen” for no apparent reason, such a consideration now places us squarely in the driver’s seat of life.
In this position we find ourselves faced with undeniable evidence confirming that we are the architects of our reality. With this confirmation, we also find that we have the power to make disease obsolete and relegate war to a memory of our past. Suddenly, the key to catapult our greatest dreams into reality is within our reach. It all comes back to us. Where do we fit in the universe? What is it that we’re supposed to be doing in life?
The False Assumptions of Science.
The transformation that the reality revolution brings to our lives has erupted with a force unmatched by anything in the past because the same discoveries that have sparked the questions have also led to the conclusion that the “facts” we’ve trusted for 300 years to explain the universe and our role in it are flawed. They’re based upon two assumptions that have been proven to be false.
False Assumption 1: The space between “things” is empty. New discoveries now tell us that this is simply not true.
False Assumption 2: Our inner experiences of feeling and belief have no effect upon the world beyond our bodies. This has been proven absolutely false, as well.
Paradigm-shattering experiments, published in leading- edge, peer-reviewed journals reveal that we’re bathed in a field of intelligent energy that fills what used to be thought of as empty space. Beyond any reasonable doubt, additional discoveries show that this field responds to us-it literally rearranges itself-in the presence of our heart-based feelings and beliefs to become the healing of our bodies and the peace of our world! And this is the revolution that changes everything.
With these and similar discoveries in mind, we must ask ourselves the question that is perhaps the most revealing of all: Are we born with the natural ability to create and modify our bodies and the world? If so, then we must be willing to ask an even more difficult question: What responsibility do we have to use our birth-given power in the presence of what are arguably the greatest threats to the future of our lives, our world, and even our species?
