Ok, so one of the most common models amongst fringe thinkers involves some formulation of "higher frequency reality". They may be talking about astral
bodies or 2012 Grand Transitions or any number of, let's be frank, weirdo models of reality.
Now, I am well versed in physics, mathematics, psychology, and western esoteric mystical traditions, as well as plain ol' shamantic traditions from
all over, and I've never heard a SINGLE reasonable answer to the following question:
A higher frequency of WHAT?
Frequency is the measure of how often a wave's peak (or trough) passes by a given observational perspective in a given amount of time. So when people
talk about their astral body being at a "higher frequency", to what wave are they referring? At best, such things are purely informational constructs
(at worst, mostly or wholely imaginary). What is supposed to be waving at a higher frequency? And don't say "Energy!". Energy is a relationship, not a
thing. It's not like a tank of gas, where you have so much of it and it's a thing, and you can measure it. The only physically meaningful way to
address 'energy' is to talk about _differences_ in energy between two things/events/places. (Want proof? What's your kinetic energy right now? Did you
account for the Earth's rotation, revolution, galatic rotation, and universal expansion?) Relativity brings this into stark relief. Saying "a higher
frequency of energy" is EXACTLY the same as saying "a higher frequency of Up or of Left". Things have energies (measured relative to local ground) and
frequencies, but energy is NOT a thing - it's a property of things.
When people talk about the earth moving into a new space, energetically, and how everything is ramping up its vibrational frequency, to what physical
property are they referring? It's certainly not anything from quantum mechanics, since our electronics still work and Schroedinger's Equation still
Is this a case of ignorant people co-opting the well-defined language describing physical reality to express a metaphor while hiding its essential
metaphorical nature, or are they referring to something real that they are just bad at talking about, or are they speaking well about a basic
fundamental physical property of which I am unaware? If it's the later, what is the nature of this property and how is it measured? My gut instinct is
to think "These people are morons who don't know what the words they use actually mean" but I'm far too open-minded to let it just sit there.
So, please, people who think in terms of vibes: What, precisely, is vibing?
