Hello, friends. So this is the latest issue of the new scientists cover story Rebuilding Reality. A bold new way to think about how the universe fits
together. A bold new way to think about how the universe fits
together. To think about how the universe fits together. Rebuilding reality. The author of this article is Heinrich Päs, a theoretical physicist
at the technical University of Dortmund in Germany, and the author of All is One.

All is One. He should have gone
a little further and said, All is One Mind, All is one consciousness. But let me read you a little bit of this article because it's
definitely progress but needs some more progress. So I'm going to read a little bit
and then comment a little bit. Reality Reconstructed. It's time to ditch the idea
that everything is always made of smaller stuff and instead
think of the universe as a single quantum
whole, says physicist Heinrich Päs. Imagine
you could see through everyday objects, through the stuff
they're made of. If you zoomed in on the arm of a chair, say, you would see that
it's just made of atoms. Zoom in again
and you would see that those atoms contain subatomic
particles called protons, neutrons and electrons. Zooming further still,
you would see that the photons and neutrons
are comprised of quarks. These are the layers
of reality. And this is how physicists
understand the universe by breaking everything down into its constituent parts,
an approach known as "reductionism".

As a particle physicist,
I grew up on this philosophy. It has brought physics a long way. It is how we built
our current picture of matter and its workings, after all. But now, with further progress
stalling, I'm convinced
we need to go beyond. We need to go about things
differently from here, rather than zooming
even further inwards. I think we need to zoom out. In doing so, we may see that everything
there is, including such seemingly fundamental things such as space and time fragment
out of a unified whole. They emerge
from a unified whole. This might sound like
philosophy or mysticism, but it is in fact
a direct result of applying quantum mechanics
to the entire cosmos. When you do that,
you realize that the universe isn't fundamentally
made of separate parts at all, but is instead a single quantum object. It is a radical idea and one which we are just beginning
to test experimentally.

But if it is correct,
it could help solve some of the most puzzling mysteries
in the physics in physics, and upend the way
we think about the universe. Okay. Then gets into very detailed
math. And you know what he calls
effective field theories and talks about Higgs boson, etc., etc., technical details that we don't need to get into at the moment. But towards the end, he says, as we proceed up the scale,
size, scale, and as we proceed, proceed up the size scale and down in energy, the effects of lower energies
could be broken by a process
called decoherence, which is how the wave function collapses. One of the theories is decoherence. But then he actually goes on
to talk about quantum entanglement as being the universal
principle throughout the cosmos. And then he says, if we do find evidence
to support this idea, it would dramatically alter the way we conceive
of the cosmos. It would mean
we could not only see a world in a grain of sand as the point
William Blake once said, but we could also quite
literally see the entire universe in its tiniest pieces and particles.

While this might sound like just a different way
of going about physics. It is much more than that. I believe we are on the way to a completely new
understanding of how the one how
the universe is put together. So not bad coming from a scientist. But where is the missing element in this article? The missing element is that the universe is not only a quantum entanglement whole, wholeness. That means everything is quantum entangled, everything, but it is a quantum entangled mind. Because these theories would be impossible without the mind. The mind is the common factor. And even
mind is not a good word. Awareness. Because what we call
the mind is a species-specific modification
of that awareness. So in fact, the universe is not just a unified whole, not just a single quantum
whole, it is a single quantum
entangled awareness.

And each of our minds is part of that one entangled awareness. And what this article says, and yet does not say is reality is constructed. But where is it constructed In consciousness. Without consciousness,
you can't do science. You can't come up
with these theories. You can't make observations. You can't design experiments, nor can you come up or conceive these theories. So we have to go one step more, my friends. And one day we'll get there. You are the whole universe. You and I. And actually,
every sentient being is the whole universe
as one awareness. One awareness
that includes plants, that includes
every sentient being, that includes us humans. Innumerable points of view in that one consciousness looking at itself
as the universe, because what we call
the objective universe, including quarks, particles, force fields are actually perceptual and cognitive activities in that one consciousness. So who are you? You are the universe. Looking at itself from a unique point of view.

You are the holo movement as the body mind entangled with that which you see that that which you see is not an objective
world out there. It is the interpretation of our own perceptual and cognitive activities in the one mind or in the one consciousness. So each of us inhabits our own universe, but it is the same universe seen as a holo movement from a particular
point of view. You and I, and
this is the observation deck which the universe is using to look at itself from a unique point of view.

In the deeper reality, we are members of one mind, one consciousness and one body, and we are not rebuilding reality. We are understanding reality as that one invisible, irreducible, fundamental, formless,
infinite, entangled awareness, experiencing itself as infinite knowers, infinite modes of knowing and infinite objects known, except they are not objects,
they're perceptual activities and cognitive
activities of our own self. We see the universe and we call it that out there. But it is us appearing
as that. And if we really understand
that, then all of science
has to be revised. Tell me what you think. I find this very exhilarating..
