The Secret of Happiness – Quantum Physic’s Perspective

Someone once said, and could not have been more right: We are all the same. We are all looking for happiness.

What might differ, though, is every individual’s idea on what happiness actually is. Ephemeral as it is, musing on true nature of happiness is an unlimited source of inspiration and – hopefully – discovery.

Perhaps quantum physics, similarly unreal yet proven existing, might help us find the answer to this ultimate question.

In his inspiring and insightful interview, quantum physicist Amit Goswani, Ph.D, provides a key to understanding happiness, and, hopefully, once we understand it, we are on the right path of achieving it.

If physical reality indeed is, as Dr. Goswani claims, constituted of four bodies: physical world, mind, feelings and intuition, all embodied in wholeness which is the fifth body, to be content in it it is imperative that the unity of all four bodies in the fifth be present.

Any separation takes us away from desired state of happiness.

To further understand the concept we might ponder Amit’s words:

“We have to take a long-term view. Nothing much can be done in short-term.

The negative emotional brain circuits are real, they are built into us and therefore there’s a tendency to be competitive, there’s a tendency to be jealous, there’s a tendency to protect yourself in survival of yourself. Considering that as the major purpose of life – there is that tendency.

But, how to rise above this tendency? So, we have to make this balancing act: life is a balancing act, of balancing these negative emotions with positive, noble emotions.

So, we love, and we love in action. When we love in action brain circuits of love are created. If we become good to our neighbors in action, not just talking about it, then the brain circuit is created; and then, when I’m feeling competitive one of these brain circuits will come to my rescue and lift me up.

So, building these brain circuits is most important, and recognizing that quantum physics is really saying that the world consists of possibilities. With creativity we can create the world that just suits us perfectly: for our growth, for our growth from separateness to wholeness.”

According to Dr. Goswani, love is the easiest way to achieve the described, but, importantly, it is not the only way. Our journey from separateness to wholeness can also be achieved through beauty, justice and goodness, and it is up to us the chose the channel that suits us, our character and temperament best. There is no right way or wrong way, only our way to reach wholeness – and the key is to get into it. Dr. Goswani names this method ‘Do-Be-Do-Be-Do’, emphasizing that getting into right way of thinking is just one step towards realization, and we need to do is act upon it as well.

“Talking is just the result of getting into right thinking, and you have to compliment the right thinking with right living, and then you have to compliment that further, that to create right livelihood for everyone so that right thinking and right living is possible.”

To reach this state we have to engage in activities in the quantum way, which simply means performing actions which make us relax into unconsciousness.

“Engaging in the activity in the quantum way is purifying for the mind, is purifying for ourselves, it enables us to grow.”

Or, simply put – pure magic!

 

The interview with Amit Goswani, Ph.D. conducted by Lilou Mace is enriching in its entirety. It will alter your perception of reality and our role in it. Be sure to watch it!

What Albert Einstein Can Teach Us about Time

Time is
Too Slow for those who Wait,
Too Swift for those who Fear,
Too Long for those who Grieve,
Too Short for those who Rejoice;
But for those who Love,
Time is not.

Henry van Dyke. Music and Other Poems

 

In an inspirational episode, Does Time Exist, first aired on June 22, 2011, and a part of the great Through the Wormhole series, we are guided on an exciting journey exploring the entity of time. We all tend to take time for granted, but after careful consideration it becomes crystal clear how difficult it is to answer a deceptively simple question: What is time?

Could it be possible that time does not really exist?

Do past, present and future exist side by side?

Is time a real thing built into Universe? Or is it just an abstraction: something we humans created to keep our civilizations running?

There are different views on the concept of time, from the one that time is what keeps everything from happening all at once, that part of the world that orders events so they happen sequentially: from beginning to end; to the notion that time is something everyone of us is actively constructing in the brain.

Sir Isaac Newton had tried to describe time as a steady beep pounding behind the scenes on the Universe, as a giant clock set into motion by God, and as such, time was absolute. Albert Einstein opposed this with a simple explanation that we do not detect absolute time, but rather time in relation. To him, time is created by the relationships of the changes that happen in the Universe, and as such time is relational. This had become the basis of his general theory of relativity.

This was not a new idea, actually: some 2500 years before Einstein, philosopher Phormidities, applying his wit a utilizing simple philosophical deduction, had proven that motion is impossible, and hence time is an illusion. Although logical, back then no one knew what to make of this time denial, so the claim had remained in its original form.

When we ponder deeply, we realize that all space is here… so can it be that all time is here as well, and it is us who only experience it sequentially, one moment after the other? If this is true, time becomes the most stubborn psychological filter.

In this respect it is interesting to consider the thought of Julian Barbour who claims that Universe does not need time at all. Time is deduced from things and exists in slices of space. When we add here the amazing Wheeler–DeWitt equation that by pure functional differentiation gets rid of time as a constant, we cannot but conclude how there is no unique history at the deepest level of reality.

So, is time just a creation in order we remain sane, and is, as David Eagleman claims, schizophrenia nothing but a disorder in time perception?

When we spiral down this path, we have to ask

Why is there time?

Where did it come from?

And after all this pondering, I remain in awe after considering entropy, the level of chaos, which, in a way, does give time the direction. So, is there time, or is it just an integral part of space-time? And if so, is it eternal, lasting and everpresent, or it does not exist at all?

What is true is that we are here for a finite amount of time. We perceive time passing through change: seasons, aging, movement. So, to expand our limited time here, we must incite as much change in our lives as possible. It is as simple as that.

To make progress in physics, we have to keep asking What if? – even if it leads us nowhere… to solve the mystery we have to do the detective work. And that is the real beauty of science.

Reflections on time are simply astoundingly beautiful mathematics in its purest form. And, alas! – it is not a question whether everything occurs the way it does, but whether we are able to accept and comprehend it without ending mind-blown.

Narrated by Morgan Freeman, not only the story on existence of time, but the entire Through the Wormhole series will take you to the most amazing and breathtaking places and leave you standing in awe.
