World Year of Physics 2005

 

"Recognizing that physics provides a significant basis for the development of the understanding of nature,

Noting that physics and its applications are the basis of many of today’s technological advances,

Convinced that education in physics provides men and women with the tools to build the scientific infrastructure essential for development,

Being aware that the year 2005 is the centenary of seminal scientific discoveries by Albert Einstein, which are the basis of modern physics,

Welcomes the proclamation of 2005 as the International Year of Physics by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization;

Invites the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization to organize activities celebrating 2005 as the International Year of Physics, collaborating with physics societies and groups throughout the world, including in the developing countries;

Declares the year 2005 the International Year of Physics."

Text excerpted from an explanatory memorandum from the 58th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Integrated Physics

Everyone and everything is living according to mathematics, force, frequencies and matter. Calculations are firing at every moment, keeping you 98.6 F degrees, transforming electrical impulses to muscular movements, and triggering hormonal secretions. Calculations are also firing for every thought, question and sensory experience, all the while filtering by other calculations what’s determined to be important, safe, acceptable and interesting.

It’s a combination of variables

    common to everything (laws of nature),

    common to some (human design details and personality opportunity),

    and uniquely yours (your dreams, perceptual reality, and preferences).

So work the oceans, planets, and the life cycles of plants and animals. Ever heard about music being based in math? Everything is energy, flowing to the beat of a specific math problem. It’s simply amazing how much we live while unconscious to so much organized action and constancy.

Atoms & You

If you look at the atomic theory, we are nothing more than a lot of space with a bunch of teeny, tiny bits of matter spinning in orbits:  lots of atoms, bits of matter, and lots and lots of empty space.

Before you get depressed about life being a lot of nothing, remember that that nothing is something!  Even the space is important, but that’s in the next section.

An atom (as opposed to an atomic ion) has a balanced electrical charge which is balanced in negativity and positivity. Each has a nucleus comprised of protons and neutrons. Each has electrons that orbit the nuclear sun.

Antimatter can form atoms, usually composed of antielectrons (called positrons), antiprotons, and antineutrons.

From Atom, Wikipedia 

Antiparticles have the same mass, spin and the opposite charge of their counterparts.  Think about people being a devil’s advocate when they are able to articulate the exact opposite of what is said.  This is similar to the properties of  antimatter: the same weightiness of the original message (mass); the same depth and breadth of material covered (spin); and the opposite perspective of the same topic (charge).

Continuing the polarity discussion here, consider the following statements:

  1. Our centers are composed of energy both positively and neutrally charged.
  2. As all atoms have at least one electron, even the simplest of folk/atoms have negatively charged energy orbiting their centers.
  3. Electrons play the primary role in a magnetic charge, similar to people being alluring or attractive.
  4. Because we are natural, there is a balance, and therefore harmonious relationship between our neutrality, our positivity and our negativity.
  5. Electric charge is a quantum number, which specifies the conserved energy value of what is charged (also known as the first law of thermodynamics). In other words, whatever is charged is ripe with potential energy; the quantity of potential energy is dependent on the configuration.
  6. Nuclear fusion is the combination of two light nuclei, resulting in one heavier nucleus and the released power called radiation – similar to radiant people … like pregnant mothers and people in love (hmmm)...
  7. If a particle and its antiparticle come in contact with each other, the two annihilate and produce a burst of energy, which result in the production of other particles and antiparticles, or electromagnetic radiation.”  When people feel they have met their opposite twin, there is an undeniable energy between them. In these reactions, rest mass is not conserved, although (as in any other reaction) mass-energy (E=mc2) is conserved.

From Antimatter, Wikipedia

This last sentence can serve as a reminder that even when annihilation seems to be in play, released energy still follows protocol. Remember that screaming at an addicted friend or staging a planned intervention can create different outcomes, even if the intention is the same in both scenarios.

So what do you think? What do you feel? Trip on that for a while.

Degrees of Freedom

A degree of freedom is a mode of movement or orientation. Examples of this include:

All of us operate from multiple degrees of freedom beyond the laws of nature. Our strengths give us degrees of freedom, and our challenges can influence our effectiveness in one or more arena. Our lifestyle is riddled with examples of how we create our own experiences.

Spacetime & You

Quantum physics asserts there are at least 11 dimensions that define the universe and everything within it. Even if that seems far-fetched to you, time is for sure the 4th, after a point, a line and a plane. Because as a species we are fairly addicted to our physical senses, it is easy to forget this. Balance is probably the closest thing we have to a physical sense of time.

Aristotle, then Galileo and finally Einstein created clarity about how time is relative. What does that mean? Well, when we dream we often have different spacetime experiences – ever taken a nap and felt like you were out for hours when it was actually minutes? Also, people often report that during intense experiences (like a car accident for instance) time slowed down. Finally, when we are having super good times, often we say things like, “where did the time go?” or “time flies when we’re having fun.” Some people can wake up at an exact time without an alarm clock.

This is not an arbitrary thing. Like a woman’s menstruation cycle and the tides are in synch with the moon, like people’s personalities shift with seasons, we constantly experience gravity, electromagnetism, thermodynamics and other cosmic forces on a visceral level. Our bodies are wired to work with them. Our minds are wired to work with them.

Nothing we experience or do happens in a vacuum; every action affects the rest of what goes on whether subtly or obviously.

Music & Time

Most people enjoy music of some sort; our interests reflect our preferences for particular vibrations for whatever reasons, as well as our relationship to time. Music cannot exist without time. Music is vibrational energy. All energy has frequency.

What kinds of music do you like, and why?

Do you know your own natural rhythms? Remember your autonomic nervous system has two main states it tracks – rest and rejuvenation, and fight or flight.

Do you play and manage with the same drive with which you work?

Do all of your friends operate at a similar frequency as you?

How diverse are your experiences?

Use these questions as food for thought, and consider experimenting in the following ways:

  1. Listen to music sometime while realizing that it reflects your personality and your physiology.
  2. Listen to music that you generally do not enjoy, and set the intention to learn more about what specifically doesn’t appeal to you. Realize how there is something else in your life that you do like with those qualities. Perhaps those experiences do not come in through your ears.

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation

This SuperLaw tells us that energy is always moving, transmuting, and changing.  It takes one form, then another, but it never stands still. Everything we see, hear, taste, touch, or smell is in a constant state of change.  In fact, this SuperLaw tells us that change is all there is. 

People sometimes say, ‘Let's wait until the dust settles after all this change before we do anything’ or ‘I just want this change to hurry up and be over so I can get back to normal!’ They don't understand that change itself is what's normal! 

Every cell in your body is replaced in less than a year.  You aren't even the same physical person you were a year ago.  You can go back to your old house or your old town, but it won't be the same, you won't be the same, and your relationship with it won't be the same as it was.  In fact, the whole world as we know it is gone the moment we know it! 

Futurist Eric Hoffer says, "In times of change, the learners will inherit the earth, while the earned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists." 

What must you do to learn to embrace and leverage change?

What are you hanging on to in your life and/or your business that no longer serves you?
