For a long time now I have had a thirst for knowledge, particularly in the science fields and mainly in physics. I enjoyed learning more and more about light, space and the Universe. As I acquired more knowledge I built up the illusion that I was gaining a better understanding of the way it all comes together. I used to think scientists are the ones to look to for answers, and that eventually all will be answered through science. How wrong I was!
A couple of months ago I was watching a documentary about Einstein, and they touched on the subject of Quantum Physics. The underlying message I got from this was that quantum physics is unpredictable and opens up unlimited possibilities. As I investigated more about it I realised that one very big possibility was that everything we knew very little about physics or anything else science related for that matter. At first I felt disillusioned and disheartened by this. Everything I thought I knew might be no more. What was the point of learning more about science if the teachings were wrong?
Despair not! One of the theories the Quantum Physics raised involved higher dimensions and parallel universes. This is what led me to this website, and what a difference it has made! My eyes have been opened, and I now realise that there is so much more out there than I ever imagined. The possibilities are endless and even more amazing, these possibilites are ALL likely probabilities.
Ironically, I look back now to a couple of months ago and realise that science is the big loser in all of this. Science is still largley closed off to the greater reality of existence. Where once I turned to science for knowledge, it now seems that science is dogged by ignorance. My whole perspective on existence has taken an about face.
I can remember looking around my physical surrounds and craving for there to be more to it than this, now I think perhaps my physical surrounds are not even there! Sometimes I look back and think the simplicity of what I saw provided comfort and security, now knowing as little as I do can be a bit daunting. Ultimately however, I can take comfort in the fact that my quest for knowledge is not bound by the limitations of science. Where once I could only hope to learn about the Universe from books, I can now explore it and learn from my own and others experiences.

I am not interested in finding out more about Quantum Mechanics. I think you misinterpreted what I was saying. I don't think Quantum Mechanics has the answers, I was just providing an insight into how my eyes were opened and the role Quantum Mechanics played in alerting me to the Greater Reality.
It seems you've gone to a fair bit of effort to "educate" me, and I appreciate that, but it's really not necessary. I have no interest in learning any more about scientific theories, as I don't feel science has much to teach in regards to enlightenment, hence the about remark.
I apologise if I have wasted your time.
