Everything is made of atoms. There are seven thousand trillion, trillion of them in the human body. No one has ever seen at atom with their eyes; its existence is inferred. Words can’t describe it. The best one can do is come up with descriptions that stir the imagination. To that extent, an atom is like a poem. Atoms have strange properties that no one fully understands. Albert Einstein said it best: “Behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible, and inexplicable.” Atoms, as we shall see, are just a thought.
Atoms have a dual nature. They are either particle; that is, they can be located with a GPS system. Or, they don’t exist. Scientists call the state of non-existence “wave.” Sadly, this strange property is a well-kept secret. While duality is widely accepted by science, it is treated as a novelty of the atomic world without relevance in the real world of everyday objects like pots and pans, fire hydrants, baseballs and such. Mainstream science avoids talking about duality because the explanation involves consciousness, something that conflicts with its otherwise rigid methods of inquiry. In other words, one can’t conduct a meaningful science experiment if the mental state of the experimenter affects the outcome. Religion avoids talking about it like the plague. The Bible doesn’t mention it and it turns Western theology on its head. For these reasons, the general population remains totally unaware of atom (indeed all matter since all matter is made of atoms) duality.
Matter duality does in fact exist in the world of everyday objects. The evidence is found in Jesus’s Resurrection and the Rainbow Body phenomenon. The two demonstrate duality in play on a human scale, providing the opportunity to verify the phenomenon outside the laboratory. It is here we find the answer to the question: “How does the atom know if it should be wave or particle?” It is also here that we must part company with mainstream science and religion. For reasons mentioned above, neither can contribute to the conversation.
As we shall see in future blogs, atoms are real (i.e. particle, not wave) whenever a human being intends for them to be real. With respect to your body, a field of organized atoms, you are the one doing the intending.
