It may seem like a paradox that the
things which we can see and touch are nonexistent. However, there is
an answer to this, which may be found in the bold and exciting
(relatively) new science of quantum physics.
In atoms, you have mostly protons, neutrons and electrons.
However, electrons for example, are insignificantly microscopic and spread out over enormous distances. In-between them, there is what is perceived as empty space. In fact, 99.99999% of an atom is this so-called ‘empty space’.
Even if we look into electrons, protons, etc, we see that there is yet more open space. Gluons, neutrinos and the like are also in there somewhere but no matter how far into these particles we look, there is not anything that we can say quantifiably that it is the building block of all of this. What’s more, electrons literally possess no dimension.
An electron is simply not an object as we know it. There is nothing.
However, our eyes and observations are
fooling us because indeed this nothing is something but we can not
quantifiably say it is something and therefore it is nothing. There
has to exist an energy that holds all these particles together like
a sort of glue, or else matter would not exist because it would be
akin to having a rock turn into sand that can not stay together as a
rock any longer.
Below is from an article
attributed to Dr. Wolf concerning his perception of this
most-interesting issue at hand.
When a piece of seemingly solid matter - a rock or a human hand or the limb of a tree - is placed under a powerful electronic microscope, the electron-scanning microscope, with the power to magnify several thousand times, takes us down into a realm that has the look of the sea about it…
In the kingdom of corpuscles, there is transfiguration and there is samsara, the endless round of birth and death.
Every passing second, some 2-1/2 million
red cells are born; every second, the same number die. The typical
cell lives about 110 days, then becomes tired and decrepit. There
are no lingering deaths here, for when a cell loses its vital force,
it somehow attracts the attention of macrophage.
We can see that it is made of long, spiral molecules in orderly array. And all of these molecules are swaying like wheat in the wind, connected with one another and held in place by invisible waves that pulse many trillions of times a second.
What are the molecules made of?
As we move closer, we see atoms, the tiny shadowy balls dancing around their fixed locations in the molecules, sometimes changing position with their partners in perfect rhythms. And now we focus on one of the atoms; its interior is lightly veiled by a cloud of electrons. We come closer, increasing the magnification.
The shell dissolves and we look on the
inside to find… nothing.
Each of these, upon our approach, also dissolve into pure rhythm.
These days they (the scientists) are looking for quarks, strange subatomic entities, having qualities which they describe with such words as upness, downness, charm, strangeness, truth, beauty, color, and flavor. But no matter.
If we could get close enough to these
wondrous quarks, they too would melt away. They too would have to
give up all pretense of solidity. Even their speed and relationship
would be unclear, leaving them only relationship and pattern of
At the ultimate heart of the body, at the heart of the world, there is no solidity. Once again, there is only the dance. (At) the unimaginable heart of the atom, the compact nucleus, we have found no solid object, but rather a dynamic pattern of tightly confined energy vibrating perhaps 1022 times a second: a dance…
The protons - the positively charged
knots in the pattern of the nucleus - are not only powerful; they
are very old. Along with the much lighter electrons that spin and
vibrate around the outer regions of the atom, the protons constitute
the most ancient entities of matter in the universe, going back to
the first seconds after the birth of space and time.
This dance of energy, the underlying rhythm of the universe, is again more intuited than seen.
Jack Kornfield, a contemporary teacher of meditation, finds a parallel between the behavior of subatomic particles and meditational states:
Albert Einstein alluded to this answer.
We, the people of this beautiful planet, are really beings made of energy, but we exist at the 3rd dimension because our atoms have a specific frequency which makes us able to exist in this very 3rd dimension.
This specific frequency is stable enough for all our lifetime.
Using this information, if we are indeed capable of accelerating and decelerating the frequencies to make us able to exist in the 3rd dimension, then naturally, we can use this in order to travel inter-dimensionally throughout the infinite multiverse… and here lies the key to the true evolution of the human being race.
Once we learn, or progress far enough,
to accelerate and decelerate the vibrating frequencies of our atoms,
then, in theory, we will be able to exist in the 5th
in parallel universes of this wonderful multiverse.
I have been informed that the quote attributed to Albert Einstein in the beginning of the article, as well as the article quotations attributed to Fred Alan Wolf are not in the specific terms which these two physicists have used.
However, upon deeper research, I have found enough evidence to be compelled to believe that the general message of matter not being definitive to still hold true.
A quote from Einstein’s “Metaphysics of Relativity” (1950) is as follows:
A bit of extra information concerning this subject, Max Planck is attributed to saying in a lecture that was given in Florence that,
Source of this quote is supposedly from the following:
My apologies if the quotations were not
verbatim. I have modified the article to represent this possibility.
