paul levy explains quantum physics:

  • There is no objective reality independent of an observer.
  • We live in a participatory universe. The observer affects what is observed by the mere act of observing.
  • Quantum entities exist in a multiplicity of simultaneous potential states (called a superposition), hovering in an abstract realm between existence and nonexistence prior to being observed.
  • There is no independent quantum entity separate from its properties. Its properties are a function of our observation. This is to say that these quantum entities aren’t real in the way we ordinarily think of something as being real.
  • The act of observation is the very act which turns the potentiality of the quantum world into the actuality of the seemingly ordinary world.
  • Our act of observation not only changes the present state of the universe, it reaches backwards in time and changes what we can say about the past. This turns our conception of linear time and causality on its head.
  • The questions we ask make a difference.
  • The universe is a seamless, undivided and instantaneously interconnected whole. This is to say that each part of the universe is interrelated with every other part in an immediate and unmediated way.
  • An expression of this wholeness is the universe’s nonlocality, in which every part of the universe is related to and in communication with every other part. Our universe doesn’t play by the typical rules of third-dimensional space and time.
  • Quantum entities can jump from one place to another without traversing the path in-between.
  • The laws of physics are not written in stone, but are mutable.
  • The quantum universe is not separate from consciousness; rather, it is an expression of consciousness. Mind and matter are no longer seen as separate.
  • Our ordinary, day-to-day universe is quantum through and through.
  • Quantum physics literally changes and transforms our mind, as it introduces a new way of thinking. It also helps us see the world differently, which helps the world to manifest differently.
  • Quantum physics is showing us how we ourselves are moment by moment playing a key role in the creation of our experience, as well as in the genesis of the cosmos, in this very moment.
  • Significantly altering Descartes’ famous principle, “I think therefore I am,” quantum physics would instead say, “I choose therefore I am.”
  • Quantum physics is a revelation in living form: it is showing us the dreamlike nature of our universe.
