The bridge between science and spirit

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” - Nikola Tesla


I am a quantum physics junkie along with being addicted to all things mystical. I wonder if there are measurable links, connections and bridges between what science allows us to observe and what we intuitively sense. I am curious about the more subtle “knowings” we all have about people, places and things and wonder if this 6th sense might one day become quantifiable.

What we perceive as our physical material world is really not physical or material at all. Not in the way that our physical senses perceive anyway. This has been proven time and time again by multiple Nobel Prize winning physicists such as Niels Bohr, a Danish physicist who made significant contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum theory for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922. According to Bohr:

“If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet. Everything that we call real cannot be regarded as real.” 

At the turn of the 19th Century physicists began to explore the relationship between energy and the structure of matter. In doing so, the belief that we live in a material Universe was called into question. The realisation that matter might be no more than a perceptive illusion slowly began to take place. Scientists began to recognise that everything in the universe is made out of pure energy.

Quantum physicists have already discovered that physical atoms are comprised of non-physical vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating - each one radiating its own unique energy signature. If you were to observe the composition of an atom with an electron microscope, you would see a small tornado like vortex and a number of infinitely smaller vortices called quarks and photons. These are what make up the structure of the atom. If you focused in closer on the structure of the atom, you would see nothing. You would observe a physical void because the atom has no physical structure. This screen has no physical structure…we have no physical structure. Atoms are made out of invisible energy, not tangible matter. As Richard Conn Henry a Professor of Physics and Astronomy stated,

“Get over it and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial - mental and spiritual.”

(Henry is hilarious by the way and worth looking up if this subject interests you).

Our experience tells us that out reality is made up of physical things and that our world is an independently existing objective one. The revelation that the universe is not just an assembly of physical parts and instead is composed of a holistic entanglement of immaterial energy waves stems from the work of Albert Einstein, Max Plank and Warner Heisenberg among many others. But what does it mean that our physical material reality isn’t really physical at all? It could mean a number of things but concepts such as this cannot be properly explored if we remain within the boundaries of the world we perceive with our limited physical senses or filters.

As Nikola Tesla said,

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all of the previous centuries of its existence.”

Isn’t it fascinating that energy and frequency is in fact what we are composed of? I am so curious about where that leaves us on a personal level. More on this, trusting your intuition and raising our energetic “vibration” in blogs to come.
