I seem to be a brief light that flashes but once in all the aeons of time.” he observes, “a rare, complicated and all-too-delicate organism on the fringe of biological evolution, where the wave of life bursts into individual sparkling, and multicolored drops that gleam for a moment only to vanish forever. Under such conditioning it seems impossible and even absurd to realize that myself does not reside in the drop alone, but in the whole surge of energy which ranges from the galaxies to the nuclear fields in my body. At this level of existence ‘I’ am immeasurably old; my forms are infinite and their comings and goings are simply the pulses or vibrations of a single or eternal flow of energy. (Alan Watts)
A drop in the ocean is the ocean in a drop:
Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck (April 23, 1858 – October 4, 1947) was a German physicist who is widely regarded as one of the most significant scientists in history. He developed a simple but revolutionary concept that was to become the foundation of a new way of looking at the world, called quantum theory. In 1900, to solve a vexing problem concerning the radiation emitted by a glowing body, he introduced the radical view that energy is transmitted not in the form of an unbroken (infinitely subdivisible) continuum, but in discrete, particle-like units. He called each such unit a quantum (the plural form being quanta). This concept was not immediately accepted by physicists, but it ultimately changed the very foundations of physics. Planck himself did not quite believe in the reality of this concept—he considered it a mathematical construct. In 1905, Albert Einstein used that concept to explain the photoelectric effect, and in 1913, Niels Bohr used the same idea to explain the structures of atoms. From then on, Planck’s idea became central to all of physics. He received the Nobel Prize in 1918, and both Einstein and Bohr received the prize a few years later.
The things that work best in life are those that are already working in any case and Max Planck hit the nail on the head with the quantum package, but, as usual, its discovery began a gold-rush leaving its higher truth in shadow. This is not coincidence. LIFE began when the least possible resistance caused eternal stillness to spark (move). The force of eternity is limitless and so, for the least possible amount of time the infinite power of eternity came alive. This is the quantum packet; it is all there is and it continues to repeat until the resistance that caused it is solved (ref: Ohm’s law and Laws of Thermodynamics).
A closer look:
The quantum package is the least movement through the ultimate force-field. The ‘spark’ continues to repeat and the repetition causes release of a secondary stream of energy. This is the way of all electrical generators except the generator in question contains the electrical capacity of the universe; as the quantum turns through its force-field the universe emerges.
Time and resistance:
Each repetition of the universal dynamo is the same (undiminished) quantity of energy going in and out of eternity – in and out of time. As the cycle continues it builds secondary resistance which opens a window of opportunity that enables time for it (the packet) to open without compromising its eternal status. We exist within the window of opportunity produced by secondary resistance. We go out to gather back – we participate in resistance so that we may gain the wherewithal to guide it home. But, before we may realistically begin to reap the harvest we must understand our position in the ‘life’ mechanism. We must, at the onset, recognize our secondary position and direct our enquiry from this awareness.
Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve. ~ Max Planck
In 1900, Max Planck opened an important door but still we have not progressed beyond the idea of the universe as an ‘unbroken continuum’ (Big Bang). The quantum packet means that the universe is constantly and radically disappearing and reappearing and doing so in the least possible amount of time. In 1905 Albert Einstein with Maleva Maric opened the door to understanding the mechanics of radical disappearance but again we tamed it to our need and shelved its insight. Today, over 100 years later, in spite of technological advances there are few that can explain Special Relativity or Planck’s Constant and fewer still that can relate either to the divine principle of eternal recurrence that they point to.
“No one understands quantum physics.” ~ Richard Feynman
We develop technologies to the detriment of wisdom. We avoid responsibility to our divine prerogative and if we do not soon learn to properly use the precious information available to us our current momentum will end in extinction. The universe will fold in on itself and life as we know it will end. But, nothing goes away, nothing can go away, this is the law of laws. We are here until we figure it out and the pain is very real.
