On its quest to answer the fundamental questions of existence, theoretical physics has made advances. Its theories are written into equations and then proven by experiment. I have no training in physics, only an Asperger's brain with a tendency towards abstract concepts, and a lifelong passion for improving the interface between man and God, psyche and Source, self and non-self.
Considering the direction of human society towards what could become a soulless world of artificial intelligence, technological tyranny, and a metaversal matrix, a balance of constant felt connection with the Source I am feels to be in order.
"Quantum Fields: The Real Building Blocks of the Universe" is a one hour discourse by David Tong, a Cambridge University professor of theoretical physics. Through my filter of interpretation, I hear him walk from the periodic table of chemistry through the composition of atoms, to the new periodic table — the electrons and quarks of physics.
Then he goes beyond, to describing a field of liquid electricity within which forces and matter interact to give us AllThatIs. When all of this is removed, the vacuum that remains is not empty but full of WhatIsNot — pure potential that is computer modeled on screen in the YouTube discourse. I am not clear if pure potential is the same as the rest state of physics, but modeled it appears active. Probably physics would call it probability.
I like to call the flowing liquid electricity plasma, and see the sphere of light encompassing me as made of the same intelligent plasma as the AllThatIs, the Source I am. When compressing to a center point and radiating outwards through the sphere, the plasma represents my understanding of what humans call love for love itself, which proves itself experientially in the quality of one's actions.
The proof of love for love itself in my actions seems hindered by the anomalies (anxiety, tension, etc.) of my neurology. By my own reckoning, improvement of the Source-psyche interface seems slow but steady.
Theoretical physics has come up with 16 or so fundamental forces and particles from which everything is made. Then David Tong admirably questions whether these are discrete, or simply variations of One Field, viewed from different perspectives. Is it human nature to enjoy when supposed reality lines up with our individual ideas of it?
Also to his credit, Tong proposes his personal postulation that theoretical physics is missing something in its understanding of the unification field equation. Could the missing something be Being?
When asking what initiated the Big Bang, perhaps physicists should ask instead who.
Not that my amateur wanderings into abstract concepts need outside confirmation, yet my interpretation of David Tong's discourse emboldens me to keep wandering. Usefulness may still be found when the self/non-self interface is made strong enough to see humanity through its plunge into potentially dark places.
To date the most useful tool to strengthen my interface is this mantra, repeated at every pause of the day and in each awakening of the night, and varied at times by intuition:
All praise to the Source I Am, the Unity, the all-inclusive One.
All gratitude for AllThatIs, as it is, and for WhatIsNot.
All that I Am, and ever will be, is Love for Love Itself.
All surrendering to the One, I relax into the Source I Am.
All connection with the Unity feeling, the Source I Am acts through me.
Putting a different SPIN on myself, that is, allowing my Source-Psyche INtegration to emerge, supports a shift towards a 'better world'.
Imagination without well integrated compassion isn’t just creating anything better. The field where the building blocks of the universe come from are beyond imagination.
In my experimental understanding imagination is a tool or a crutch till something more wholesome is realized. More wholesome to me is the creative spark. This spark is always applicable to the present moment . This spark nurtures with the electric fire of joy, love, peace the ripening fruit of compassion.🙏
