This seems to be more of a theory based on sound science. So, it is hard to prove or even disprove for that matter. Here are some of the basics that
I have found
J. J. Thomson received the Nobel Prize for proving that electrons are particles. His son was also awarded the Nobel Prize for proving that electrons
were waves. It seems that both were and are actually correct. The evidence for the wave/particle duality has become overwhelming. This is common to
all subatomic particles - called quanta, they can manifest themself either as particles or waves. Even more interesting is that the only time quanta
ever manifest as particles are when we are looking at them.
The Danish physicist Niels Bohr pointed out that if subatomic particles only come into existence in the presence of an observer, then it is
meaningless to speak of a particle's properties and characteristics as existing before they are observed.
Subatomic processes result in the creation of a pair of particles with identical or closely related properties even when traveling in opposite
directions. Such strange behavior would imply that they would have to be interconnected in some way so as to be instantaneously in communication with
each other. The problem, according to Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity, is that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. The
instantaneous communication implied by the view of quantum physics would be tantamount to breaking the time barrier and would open the door to all
kinds of unacceptable paradoxes. Einstein and his colleagues were convinced that no "reasonable definition" of reality would permit such
faster-than-light interconnections to exist and therefore Bohr had to be wrong. Their argument is now known as the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox,
or EPR paradox for short. Bohr contended that rather than believing that some kind of faster-than-light communication was taking place and if
subatomic particles do not exist until they are observed, then one could no longer think of them as independent "things." Thus Einstein was basing
his argument on an error when he viewed twin particles as separate. They were part of an indivisible system, and it was meaningless to think of them
otherwise. In time, most physicists sided with Bohr and became content that his interpretation was correct.
One factor that contributed to Bohr's following was that quantum physics had proved so spectacularly successful in predicting phenomena, few
physicists were willing to even consider the possibility that it might be faulty in some way. The entire industries of lasers, microelectronics, and
computers have emerged on the reliability of the predictions of quantum physics. The popular CalTech physicist Richard Feynman has summed it up well:
"I think it is safe to say that no one understands quantum mechanics... In fact, it is often stated that of all the theories proposed in this
century, the silliest is quantum theory. Some say that the only thing that quantum theory has going for it, in fact, is that it is unquestionably
Bohm's work in plasma physics in the 1950s is considered a landmark. Earlier, at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, he noticed that in plasmas (gases
composed of high-density electrons and positive ions) the particles stopped behaving like individuals and started behaving as if they were part of a
larger and interconnected whole. Moving to Princeton University in 1947, there too he continued his work in the behavior of oceans of particles,
noting their highly organized overall effects and their behavior, as if they knew what each of the untold trillions of individual particles was doing.
One of the implications of Bohm's view has to do with the nature of location. Bohm's interpretation of quantum physics indicated that at the
subquantum level location ceased to exist. All points in space become equal to all other points in space, and it was meaningless to speak of anything
as being separate from anything else.
The web of subatomic particles that compose our physical universe - the very fabric of "reality" itself - possesses what appears to be an undeniable
For the religous out there:
This view is not inconsistent with the Biblical presentation of the physical ("explicate") world as being subordinate to the spiritual
("implicate") world as the superior reality. The Bible is, of course, unique in that it has always presented a universe of more than three
dimensions, and revealed a Creator that is transcendent over His creation. It is the only "holy book" that demonstrates these contemporary
Paul Davis has summarized it provocatively: "It is as if the entire universe was nothing more than a thought in the mind of God."
To me, this in entirely intriuging. So, we are actually making reality as a colective whole. Maybe this can explain alot of things, so if this is
true, it would be hard for one person to change the reality around us. But, if a sufficient number of us got together and in our hearts and minds
felt something then it could happen, I would guess uf we outnumbered the naysayers. IE: Getting 10,000 people sitting on a mountain hoping for a UFO.
It would happen... As long as less than that knew about it and thought it was immpossible. So, media coverage of the even would make it not happen.
hmmmmmmm.... I think I will sit at home and expect $1,00,000 in my freezer tomorrow morning.... Everyone wish it will happen for me...
