46 – Quantum Field Theory and us …

Before Galileo proved that our idea of being the center of the Universe was mistaken, we truly believed that it was the Sun that rotated around the Earth. It was an understandable mistake since we actually saw the Sun rising in the East and disappearing in the West. To understand our world, we were relying on the raw and limited perception of our senses. Today we still see the same Sun rising in the East and disappearing in the West, but without doubt accept the fact that it is the Earth that circles the Sun. But the mistaken perception was so deeply ingrained in our minds that it took us centuries before we could accept the factual one.

Limited by our organic senses we continue to be unable to perceive many factual factors of Reality: We are, for instance, unable to perceive the flow of Life in its constant transformations from energy into mass and mass into energy; we are unable to perceive the fact that we are made out of myriad living things gathered together to build our existence; we are unable to perceive the fact that everything is interconnected and intimately dependent on changes and fluctuations in internal and external environments; we are unable to see that Life is like a stream of water, a flowing field of forces that may be great or small, simple or complex, violent or tender, destructive or creative, grotesque or beautiful; we are unable to see that we come into existence out of a Primordial Force that endows us with the potential to transform its course.

Humanity’s evolutionary process is a flowing field in which we are forces that affect and are affected in two different yet complementary ways: One is by our self-initiated actions (Action with Contact) that can affect and modify the environment that surrounds us, the second one is by the environmental forces that affect and modify our actions as we create a path through space and time (Action at a Distance).

The simple lesson behind Quantum Field Theory is that our lives are flowing fields, and when we focus on a goal we may turn into a powerful force in which we are ‘operators’ with the potential to affect and possibly transform the world around us, but always remembering that nothing is accomplished without the consent of the internal and external forces acting upon us.

The explosive increase of our population; the demands of an economic system based on unlimited growth without regards to the impact on the environment;  the disregard for the disadvantaged of political ideologies bent on serving the insatiable greed of a selfish elite; the focus of educational systems, not on Knowledge but on promoting and perpetuating an unsustainable economic doctrine; the fear-based and divisive demands of organized religions obsessed with the control of the human mind, are some of the powerful forces acting upon us and determining our destructive behavior.

It is uncanny to see entire cultures, billions of us, blinded by the destructive belief that the true measure of success is on the insatiable accumulation of power and material wealth. A belief that releases us from responsibility and blinds us to the impending signs of an environment in crisis.

Political and economic powers are recklessly, insolently, deviously, and forcefully silencing the scientific warnings of environmental upheaval with the sole purpose to perpetuate a doctrine of unlimited growth that is unsustainable under our exponential growth.

Kept in the dark by a religious doctrine inhibiting the Truth, pre-Galilean Humanity could not see beyond the limitations of our organic senses. Today we are very much in a similar predicament: Politicians, protecting the crumbs they are thrown by the corporations pillaging resources and inciting the crisis, discredit scientific proofs to inhibit the Truth.

Once I saw a lapse-time-video taken from a high-rise on Fifth Avenue in New York. The camera had been focused on a heavily frequented clearing in Central Park. It is a well-known fact that natural elements tend to follow the path of less resistance. Well, this video showed that most people traversed the clearing by taking the easiest and most direct path. But once in a while a person or group of persons, perhaps because they had the time, or were forced by circumstances beyond their control, or felt adventurous and wanted to explore the area, took different and rarely traversed paths. I was reminded then how transformations occur. Leaders, adventurers, visionaries, revolutionaries, perhaps forced by external factors, or driven by curiosity, or motivated by their visions, take the ‘less traveled path’ and start a new trend, or discover a new concept, or find a new way to understand things. Their innovations might start a chain reaction, a new and more interesting path might be more frequently followed, and if a critical mass is reached, the new path might become ‘the path of less resistance.’ And a new transformation may be on its way.

Our world is in desperate need of individuals who are willing to take the less traversed path. There is no need for us to follow a self-centered vision of the world where Knowledge is being hijacked by Greed. We are magnificent instruments of transformation in the unfolding of the Primordial Force of Life, and already possess the common-sense knowledge to create and operate intelligent modes of existence.

Our minds possess the capacity to see beyond what our organic senses allow us to see; we hold the power to initiate actions that unleash the powerful forces with which we can affect the decisions that make an impact on our lives, mindful always of the forces affecting and modifying our actions.

Share the knowledge.
