“Quantum theory is the theoretical foundation of modern physics that explains the nature and behavior of matter and energy at the atomic and subatomic levels. The nature and behavior of matter and energy at that level are sometimes referred to as quantum physics and quantum mechanics.” Usually, such an intro would put you off reading, but if you consider that this explanation can help you achieve your dreams, then I would just read on.
Max Planck and his Quantum Theory
In 1900 physicist Max Planck presented his quantum theory to the German Physical Society. He had investigated why radiation from incandescent material changes color as the temperature rises or falls. Think of a piece of iron being heated: first, it turns red, then orange, then blue.
He discovered that by assuming that energy is made up of different parts, just like matter is, not as a constant electromagnetic wave, as previously considered, and therefore measurable. The existence of these parts became the first assumption of quantum theory.
Planck created a mathematical equation to represent these individual units of energy. He called them quanta. He discovered that at certain temperatures (exact multiples of a primary minimum value), an incandescent object’s energy occupied different areas of the color spectrum.
Planck’s discovery earned him the Nobel Prize in 1918, but that was only the basis for the quantum theory we know today, for it has expanded enormously over the decades through advancing and new insights.
The Development of Max Planck’s Theory
In 1900 Planck assumed that energy was made up of different units, or quanta. Subsequently, Albert Einstein stated that in addition to energy, radiation is also quantified in the same way.
The two main interpretations of quantum theory’s implications for the nature of reality are the “Copenhagen Interpretation” and the “Theory of the Many Worlds.” Niels Bohr introduced the Copenhagen interpretation of the quantum theory, which claims that a particle is measurable (say, a wave or a particle). Still, he cannot be assumed to have specific properties or even exist until it is measured. Put, according to Bohr, this means: objective reality does not exist.
This translates to a principle called “superposition,” which indicates that while we do not know an object’s status, it is actually in all possible states simultaneously as long as we do not perceive it.
The second interpretation of the quantum theory is “the many worlds,” or the multiverse theory. This theory holds that once there is a possibility that an object is in a particular state, the universe of that object transmutes into a series of parallel universes, precisely equal to the number of possible conditions in which the thing can exist. This means that each universe contains a unique single possible state of that object. Also, there is an interaction between these universes allowing these forms to be accessible in one way or another.
Quantum theory and your reality
As you can see, quantum theory offers the critical insight that both our subjective and objective perception is not indisputably the truth. Moreover, the “truth” is present in all the possibilities that the universe offers, and this truth is only perceivable when we are aware of it.
Everything is possible within the quantum theory, and the linear Newtonian theory of cause-effect no longer binds us.
When you view your own reality and future from this perspective, you can imagine that your fate is not “already sealed.” As long as you are not aware of something, all possibilities still exist.
When our universe is indeed holographic in nature, as some scientists claim, the possibilities are endless, and we are even able to create our future as we wish. Scientist and author Gregg Braden wrote The Divine Matrix about this, one of the most amazing books I have ever read. In this book, he links old wisdom with the most modern insights from quantum physics. He tackles the evolution theory in one and a half pages, and he also puts your world upside down because nothing is as it was thought it was. And the clever thing is, all in plain, understandable language!
