I’ve been doing more research on energy. The reason I keep coming back to this subject is to help my rational mind understand that there is absolutely no difference in the energy of the human mind/body and the energy of gravity, magnetism or strong and weak nuclear energy – called the four fundamentals by scientists.
In the words of Richard Feynman (1918 – 1988), a celebrated physics teacher and Nobel Laureate “It is important to realize that in physics today, we have no knowledge of what energy is.”
It took me a while to find this quote. I think that’s a really, really important statement. So, if modern physics has “no knowledge of what energy is”, that means it’s a mystery.
OK, so what’s the difference between that energy mystery and the energy mystery of how your mind and your thoughts affect your body and your world? Why do we sort of accept all these scientific theories and discount the spiritual, mind/body, field of all possibility theories? There is a serious disconnect here.
There is also a mysterious energy that beats my heart and breathes me. Modern medicine has no idea what that energy is.
I came across some other information on my web search – all from what I consider to be reputable sources. Science believes that whatever caused the original big bang – another mystery – all the energy that is in the universe today was unleashed. A finite amount of energy came into being all at once. The theory is that no new energy is ever added – it’s called the conservation of energy theory.
This from Scientific American, June, 2010: “Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. This principle, called conservation of energy, is one of our most cherished laws of physics.” I added the emphasis.
So, the scientific theory is that from a mysterious big bang all energy was created – and, we don’t know what that energy is. From there scientists postulate all sorts of theories. When you get down to the basics, they have a lot of theories because they don’t have a clue what’s going on. Just to be clear – that means scientists don’t know what gravity, magnetism, electricity or nuclear energy is.
OK, I’m not beating up on scientists – you all keep thinking and theorizing about it. My point is – it’s a mystery. Just like the mind/body connection, manifestation from thoughts, psychic phenomena, intuition, imagination, dreams, you fill in the rest – are mysteries.
If we are going to honor scientific mysteries, then let’s also honor what I’m calling spiritual mysteries. Both the scientific and the spiritual mysteries are in the area of the occult or hidden aspects of this dimension we are temporarily inhabiting.
We live in a totally magical, mysterious world. That seems to be the only fact I’ve been able to find so far.
