The bridge between quantum physics and general relativity requires a paradigm shift. -- Video /transcript

The bridge between quantum physics and general relativity requires a paradigm shift.

As humans we've all been conditioned to view three dimensional space as absolute, time as a single, linear progression, and our experiences as reality itself. Such conditioning obviously serves a purpose in in day to day life, but when one seeks to understand the true nature of reality and our place within it, these assumptions become obstacles.

This is why modern scientists have had such a difficult time combining quantum physics and general relativity into a unified theory. They actually already have the facts needed to connect the dots, but connecting those dots requires a paradigm shift, that many are uncomfortable with.

The problem isn't what you don't know. The problem is what you think you know that just isn't so.

The confusion begins with the way most people think of quanta. If you ask the average college student what an electron is, they will probably tell you that it is a particle, which evokes an image of a tiny object floating in space. This is a misconception. Quanta are not objects.

Quanta have what scientist call a wave/particle duality. Meaning that they can behave as either a particle or a wave depending on how we interact with them. The terms wave and particle however, are deceptive. A more accurate way of conceptualizing quanta would be to think of their wave state as a field of probability which can be recorded as an interference pattern, and their particle state as probability collapsed into single point of interaction. For more on this look up the double slit experiment.

Now, even those who are aware of the bizarre properties of quanta, such as their wave/particle duality, quantum teleportation, quantum super positioning and quantum entanglement, still tend to conceptualize this phenomena within mental framework based on space and time.

Again, this is just conditioning.

Quanta do not exist within time and space. They do not occupy three dimensional positions. In fact time and space are actually created by the interactions of quanta, specifically quantum entanglement. This phenomenon is described in the Wheeler DeWitt equation, and has been confirmed experimentally. Also see this.

Interestingly general relativity theorists and cosmologists are thrown off by the same underlying assumptions.

They acknowledge that the origin of the universe (the singularity) is a timeless, spaceless (nonlocal) state, but most don't fully recognize the implications.

For example: you can't say that the singularity existed "before" the big bang. That's putting the timeless inside of time. If something is timeless then it has no temporal relationships. It cannot be before or after anything.

Now general relativity tells us that that time and space are one fabric. This is not merely theoretical. GPS satellites have to account for distortions in time caused by their speed, otherwise their readings would drift by several miles.

Since time and space are one fabric, without space, you cannot have time and without time you cannot have space.

If you connect the dots here, quanta actually share several key characteristics with the singularity. They are both timeless and spaceless energy.

Now if quanta and the singularity are both timeless and spaceless, then they cannot be separate. Separation can only exist within a time space continuum. If quanta and the singularity are not separate, then they are actually one.

And here we arrive at the crux of the matter. The singularity didn't cease to exist in an explosion billions of years ago. Quanta are the singularity interacting with itself. Everything is one. Literally. This is quantum relativity.

{There is no getting outside of this quantum singularity. There is no before or after it. The quantum singularity can only exist in a state of here and now.}

Now some of the more advanced among you might ask "But what about gravity?"

Well, general relativity tells us that gravity is a geometric property of space and time, and again experimental evidence shows that space and time are byproducts of quantum entanglement.Scientist have recently discovered that certain geometric models can be used to dramatically simplify calculations of quantum interactions, and quantum entanglement (Geometry of Quantum States), so it is not a massive leap to consider that the geometry that creates gravity is actually a characteristic of quantum probability fields. In fact some researchers are actively exploring this possibility.

So how does all this relate to us in this human experience we are having?

We still have to deal with the "real world" with its time clocks, bills, wars, and petty tyrants, right?

Well, this rabbit hole actually goes much, much deeper, but if you want to take something home from this level start here: the rules of the game are not as rigid as you've been taught that they are.

If you start with our quantum nature as your point of reference, everything changes. The very idea that we owe obedience to these pitiful phantoms that we call government, or that we are bound to keep spinning these bizarre hamster wheels we've built for ourselves, becomes laughable.

It doesn't have to be this way. Choose something different.

Find that millimeter of free will within, and expand it. As you do, you'll start to realize that reality is a creative process, not a mechanical, linear, progression.

You are the quantum singularity interacting with itself. The more we wake up to that the wider the possibilities become.

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:

Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:

Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
