"Connected" is an easy term to throw around. Of course, once asked where and what this connection is, one can never simply point it out; He can only
devise some grand picture in his imagination, talk about it, and hope that people will believe it. Rather, the connection is an illusion, something
one can only think up, usually by appealing to gods and "observers" and new age dogma, but never any actual connection.
My friend, you are wrong on all accounts. Let me sum it up for you scientifically...
We are connected by gravity. One of the fundamental forces that extends infinitely. Every single particle in your body has a gravitational field
which extends out and affects the particles around it, so they are loosely connected by gravity. The sum of all the particles in your body creates a
gravitational field which forms part of Earth's gravitational field. Earth's gravitational field is connected to the Moon's gravitational field. The
Earth and Moon are connected to the Sun's gravitational field, and the Sun's gravity affects pretty much every planet in the solar system. Beyond
that, it is certain that the sum of all gravitational fields that exists in our solar system extends out infinitely and affects other stars and
objects. The entire universe is loosely connected via gravity. No matter how great or small, even if it's microgravity, it is connected.
We are connected by electromagnetism (magnetism in general), one of the other fundamental forces that extends infinitely. Every atom in your body is
electromagnetic. In fact, all matter is electromagnetic. Every particle of your body has an electromagnetic field which interacts with the
electromagnetic fields of other particles around it. Either attraction or repulsion, either way, the magnetic force is influencing everything around
you. Keep in mind that magnetism is additive. That means that two magnets, when combined, will combine their strength (with a little loss because
they can't occupy the same space) and become one stronger magnet. So every atom in your body is magnetically connected, and their combined magnetic
field creates one large magnet. Even the air around you is electromagnetic, so your skin is electromagnetically connected to the air around you, and
the air is electromagnetically connected to everything it touches (that is why sound is possible). Your body's magnetic field combines with Earth's
magnetic field, and the Earth's magnetic field connects with the Moon, and the Sun, and it extends out into the solar system, and also into the entire
Universe. No matter how great or small, it is connected.
Light is electromagnetic. All things are loosely connected via light. I should say visible and non-visible electromagnetic radiation. You can see
me, and I can see you, because we are connected by the visible light we emit and or reflect. Everything we see is connected to us via light. There is
light passing between everything. There is not a single place in the entire universe that is completely void of some form of light, be it microwaves,
radiowaves, ultraviolet radiation, etc., it is everywhere. Don't be fooled into thinking light has no effect on you. In order for you to reflect
light, it must first be absorbed into the particles of your body, and then radiated out by your particles. Most of the light is absorbed into your
particles and never radiated out, but instead converted into thermal energy (heat) and transferred to other particles near by. So it is safe to say
the light emitted by the stars at night is absorbed into your body, and no matter how large or small the amount of light, it is a connection. Not to
mention all the light from all the stars, and the light that connects all the stars. Again, I am not just talking about visible light, and what you
can see with your eyes. I am talking about all electromagnetic radiation, and the connections it makes between every object in the universe. You
will not understand the importance of this unless you really think about it. Don't forget, parts of our bodies create light as well, especially our
fingernails, and our hands.
Electrons, which are needed to form the particles of our body, can be shared and passed onto other objects and persons. These electrons pass through
our body at nearly the speed of light on a daily basis without us knowing. These same electrons are responsible for your senses, and your mind's
thoughts, and your muscle movements, and your life, and they can be passed into a metal door knob in the form of a mini bolt of lighting if you
collect enough of them. They often are absorbed into Earth from your body. They pass through your electrical wires, through your electrical devices,
and into Earth. They are collected in the clouds, and released into Earth in the form of lightning. When we step foot on Earth, our bodies are
electrically connected to Earth, and we are "grounded". These electrons are shared between people, and things all over the place. Electrons are one
of the main building blocks for matter, and many forms of matter share these electrons. So technically, these objects are ONE object. The funny thing
is, nobody really knows what an electron is. We know it is energy, but what is it really, and what does it really do? Also, the Sun emits electrons
and protons. A lot of those electrons are blocked by Earth's magnetic field, but they find their down to Earths surface sooner or later. The
electrons from other stars do the same. So the electrons of our body could possibly have originated from the other side of the Universe. We are
connected in that aspect as well.
... and that is just the beginning. I haven't even mentioned how we are systematically connected.
So what were you saying about this "connection being an illusion"? The fact is, separation is the illusion.
