37"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
38Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For
with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
39He also told them this parable: "Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? 40A student
is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.
41"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
42How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your
own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
In quantum physics, there is a principle by which the Heisenburg Uncertainty Principle is based off of. When you have a particle and want to measure
it, you will find what you are looking for. For instance, if you're looking at a photon, and you're looking at it to display wave behaviors, it will
display wave behaviors, and if you're looking at it to display particle behaviors, it will display particle behaviors. If you measure it to see
An aspect of quantum mechanics is this measurement principle. If you want to find the velocity of a particle, you can never know its position, but if
you want to find the position, you can never know the velocity. If you want to measure both, you will see both.
Christ is talking about this same principle when he speaks of the speck in your brother's eye and the plank in your own. When we judge someone, we
are effectively placing a plank in our own eye, blinding us to what God could show us and teach us through that person. We become so focused on that
sin we perceive, based on our judgment, that we can't see anything else.
We have, effectively, measured them by that judgment, or position in the Quantum metaphor, and have, as a result, lost the ability to see what God
wants us to see, or velocity in the quantum metaphor. I have been guilty of this, especially here on ATS. I have slotted various members into
categories in my mind, and have responded to the judged person in my mind, instead of to what they have said or who they really are. As Christ said in
the passage I quoted, "Give [judgment] and [judgment] will be given you".
I apologize to all of you because, to one degree or another, I have judged every one of you. Some I have condemned, others I have risen up, and have
been blinded as a result.
It's really remarkable how God's creation can teach us deeper meaning in His Word.
