Previous posts addressed the wave/particle dual nature of the atom, making note of its responsiveness to human intent. The atom’s natural state is wave (subtle, intangible and ineffable) but manifests as particle (obvious, tangible and understandable) when a human so intends. This strange behavior is typically demonstrated in the laboratory using photons (light particles created by a laser pointer) as surrogate for the atom. A laser generated dot on the wall, it is claimed, is where it is because that is where the holder of the laser device intended for it to be, not because that is where the laser was aimed. This blog further clarifies the role of human consciousness in the atom’s wave/particle behavior. The exercise involves demonstrating what happens when one points the laser device at a wall without intending for the photons to land where the device is pointed.
The withdrawal of intent for the photons to be at a particular location is accomplished by inserting an impassible filter in the photon path; impassible except for two,tiny, side by slits cut in it (see above).The slits give the photons options. They can pass through the left one or the right one. Normally one would expect to find two spots on the trailing wall. One behind the left slit, one behind the right. But, that is not the case. The pattern on the wall reflects wave behavior (see below). The photons spread themselves out over an expanse. And, the farther away the filter is from the wall, the more spread out the photons become. It is as if a dialogue is taking place between the photons and the holder of the laser device. The conversation goes like this. The holder says to the photons, “I don’t really care where you land on the wall; left or right, it’s up to you.” The photons respond, “Thank you very much. But, if you do not have a preference than we will stay in our natural wave state.” In other words, as they photons approach the wall, they know the intent of the holder.
Now, mainstream science will certainly object to this interpretation of the double-slit experiment. In the objection, they overlook the work of Dr. Dean Radin, a senior researcher at the paranormal think tank, The Institute of Noetic Sciences. Dr. Radin’s work shows beyond any doubt that experienced meditators, through intent, can reduce the spreadoutedness of the pattern on the wall, making the photon stream more compact, more particle-like than it otherwise would be. Non-meditators cannot accomplish the compaction nor can robots programmed with artificial intelligence; only human beings experienced in meditation.
The implications of this experiment are astonishing. They will be covered in future blogs. But, for now, atoms cannot exist in particle form unless human consciousness intends for them to exist in particle form.
