Sneaking in past the media blitz in the news was a little renewed interest in the “God particle.” A memo that was later said to be unconfirmed stated that the Large Hadron Collider in France had uncovered the much sought-after subatomic particle. The God particle is the pet name for the Higgs boson.
Theoretical physicist Peter Higgs came up with the Higgs particles and related mechanism in the 1960s. This Higgs boson, or the God particle, is said to give mass to other particles in the universe, but it has never been found. So there was the necessary excitement that CERN—the European Organization for Nuclear Research—and the Large Hadron Collider had finally found it.
Particle and Human Duality
The prospect brings a lot of spiritual and metaphysical interest for me. I am not a physicist by any means. Quantum mechanics and the new theories of the universe fascinate me because I hope that science and spirituality can begin to bridge the huge chasm that separates them. Many of the new theories speak of possible new dimensions and wormholes. Basic quantum theory expounds on particle wave duality, which is that light can be either a wave or a particle.
We as humans have a particle body and a wave spirit. Our observations of our spiritual existence tell us we can be the physical body or spiritual energy and not always via death. With astral travel and remote viewing, the individual allows a part of his consciousness to travel and leave his physical body. When people who have had a experience, they find that a part of their awareness is often able to observe their bodies from an outside position and note occurrences that the physical body in its prone state could not possibly be aware of.
The Higgs boson will give science answers to questions about the universe’s mass and expansion. It will undoubtedly open up many new questions in the process. In history there have been masters, gurus and teachers who have had the phenomenal ability to seemingly create objects out of nothing. Sathya Sai Baba, who passed on April 24, was said to be able to create for his disciples ash, jewels and other objects from the air. Of course, he had many detractors and many who sought to prove he was a fake.
There have been many other men and women in history who have defied the known laws of physics to create material things, move through physical objects and do healings and the like. We are taught that what you think upon is created. Our thoughts can become form. If so, perhaps our conscious mind can have a profound effect upon the universe, and that should give us pause to reflect upon what we are thinking and creating.
On the mystical path, it is important to become aware of the inter-connections between science, various religious and spiritual practices, art, language and history. We must study these subjects and see how they blend. As with anything, when we look at only a part of something, we miss the entirety of it. Like a hologram, a small portion can reflect the bigger picture.
