Quarks

Modern nuclear physics has discovered smaller components of the atoms since 1964: Quarks. There are 6 types. A proton consists of 3 quarks, an electron of one. The special feature is that these quarks constantly disintegrate into an energy wave and then form again. The lifetime of a quark is about 10‾¹² seconds, which is the billionth of a second, or otherwise, in a single second, the smallest constituents of our matter have been destroyed many billions of times and have re-formed. In the electron, which is supposed to revolve around the atom, one assumes that it decays with every change of direction and forms again. How often do you have to change the direction of a straight line to make a circle? Certainly several thousand times in a single roundabout.

Where is the permanence of our matter? We see a solid chair, so firm that we can sit on it, and where we have set it today, it will still be tomorrow. But this is an illusion from a nuclear physics point of view. In reality, the particles that make up the chair have constantly dissolved and re-formed. In such short times that we can not follow by our conscious perception. The chair, like all matter, is in a state of limbo between being and non-being, between matter and energy.

The fist on the table

When I bang my fist on the table, my fist hits the table, there’s a bang, my fist suddenly stops. Why is that? Perhaps because one matter is slowing the other because two solids can not occupy the same space? If we now consider how thin the atoms are distributed, then the chance that an atom of my fist hits an atom of the table is 1 to 100 million. It is not braked by the matter of the table, it is rather the energy fields around the atoms, which with their forces brake the fist. If the table were of another form of energy, the fist could penetrate the table. From a nuclear perspective, it is nothing special that spirits, if they are made up of a different energy form, can go through doors and walls.

Entangled particles

Since Einstein (Special Relativity Theory), we know that it is completely impossible for us, for any spaceship, to reach the speed of light. One would have to spend an infinitely large energy. “Warp 4” – the 4 times speed of light – this is only available in science fiction movies, StarTrek, etc, not in our Physics and not in the current space flight! We know that there are distant places in the universe, from which the light takes thousands and millions of years to reach us.

The paradox of the entanglement is that the particles after their commun formation can be separated in the opposite direction from each other and can be e.g. many thousand light years apart. They then still remain entangled, that is, when the state of the one particle is determined or changed, then the state of the second particle changes at the same moment. “At the same moment” means right now or immediately, at the exact moment, as soon as we can ever imagine. The particles, however, can not communicate with one another, at least not in our universe. According to the laws of relativity, nothing can be faster than light, not even Information, that would otherwise change the order of cause and effect. So it takes a thousand years for the second particle to notice, via any information path, that the first particle has changed. Nevertheless, it reacts immediately. This phenomenon can not be explained within our universe with the three-dimensional space-time structure known to us, it functions “non-locally”, that is, outside our space-time structure.

This phenomenon is comparable to a magic pair of dice, which shows always same number with each roll, even if both dice are many kilometers apart. Einstein has mistrusted his own Invention and called it somewhat derisively as “spooky distance action”, today’s physicists objectively speak of “quantum teleportation”.

This was demonstrated experimentally over a distance of 50 km. Prof. Gisin, who demonstrated the entanglement in 2008 at the CERN institute, said “there happens something quite strange, something outside the space-time”. As mysterious as this phenomenon is, today’s technical applicationsare developed: Photo-techniques, quantum computers with much higher performance, quantum cryptography (data-protected data connection). Electrons in the shell of an atom are entangled.

The so-called “non-locality” is a physical term, a conclusion of certain wave properties and the particle entanglement. The entangled particles behave as if they did not care where and how far apart they are. It is a theoretical concept, it is hardly comprehensible with the mind and is also a mystery for physicists. One gives a name to the incomprehensible, to put it at least in words. The non-locality points beyond our 3D universe into a different world that we do not know.

If one believes in the Big Bang hypothesis, the whole matter of our universe was united 13.5 billion years ago in one single point of concentrated energy. Then a large part of the matter must necessarily be entangled with one another. Because of this entanglement and the EPR phenomenon there must then be close connections between many parts of the universe that are far apart (idea by Dr. Rolf Froböse). And mysterious connections between humans, e.g. telepathy is then not a “paranormal phenomenon” but a logical consequence of physics.

Conclusion

Towards the end of the Middle Ages, physics has established itself as a science by turning away deliberately from all human influences, especially beliefs and the religion of that time. The classical materialistic 3-D world, described by Newton’s physics, is a clear defined world. It also corresponds to the principle “I believe only what I see and what I can touch”.

Quantum physics describes a completely different, alien world. It goes more like a principle “I can barely believe what I see”. It is not defined and is not unequivocal. After 400 successful years of pure materialism, the human mind, the consciousness, enters once again into physics. The smallest particles in our world behave as follows: as long as they are observed by humans, they are fixed to a certain state, be that the spin (see superposition) or a certain particle in a particular slit of the double-slit experiment. However, as soon as they are not observed, they transform into an undefined energy wave or into an undefined state of simultaneity in two slits or the simultaneity of two opposite spins. They act as if they are only there for us, only when we need them for observation. Otherwise, they hide their nature from us and disappear from the world of a clearly defined reality.

Digital physics and virtual reality

Karl Schrödinger developed a theory that in the double-slit experiment the particles do not fly through the slits as particles, but only as a probability of particles. They can no longer be described by their exact location at a certain time and with exact size, but only by probability functions. From this problem, a completely new model was developed, which is to describe our reality: digital physics. The central idea is that our universe is to be understood as a huge digital machine and can be described by computer programs. Since the 1960s to the present, there are several scientists who have worked on this theory, including Konrad Zuse, the inventor of the computer.

According to Prof. Hans-Peter Dürr (former director of the Max Planck Institute), the whole cosmos with living and dead matter, with visible and invisible is embedded in a universal “quantum code”. The dualism body-soul is only the correspondence of quantum mechanical wave particle dualism.

The thesis of virtual reality appears even more strange. Just as the smallest particles only exist when we look at them, our whole reality is an illusion that exists only when we look at it. It is because of our limited perception that we see reality as “real”. In an oversized meta-level, all information about our world is stored. We live in a matrix of consciousness. Just as in the movie trilogy “Matrix” (1999, “Matrix Reloaded” , “Matrix Revolution”), where a large part of the action takes place in a computer-generated virtual reality. The American physicist and consciousness researcher Thomas Campbell has developed this theory very far. As strange as this theory may be, it can explain many riddles of physics, such as the non-locality. Thomas Campbell even has an explanation why the light speed is always constant.

Nonsense? The Universe – a computer game? The theory of virtual reality is scientifically a model, an unproven theory. The mainstream of the physicists still sees the universe as a material reality, as best corresponds to our mind, but he fights with the riddles of quantum physics without being able to solve it.

Buddhism says that the external (material) world is an illusion. This is where Buddhism meets modern theories of physics. This also fits with the knowledge we come to when we deal intensively with the hereafter. And Thomas Campbell knows what he says, for he has done many self-experiments with out-of-body experience and has seen many other realities with his own eyes.

What does Max Planck say about matter?

The closer we look at matter, the foundation of our world, the more unreal and unstable it becomes. It is uncertain whether it exists at all, at least it is in a constant state of limbo between being and non-being. Even the energy that we can barely grasp and can not see seems to have more permanence.

Max Planck (1858-1947), founder of quantum physics, Nobel Prize 1918, said 1944 in a lecture on the “essence of matter”:

Gentlemen, as a physicist who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I am certainly free from the suspicions of being held for a rutpurous enthousiast.

I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. Since, however, there is neither an intelligent force nor an eternal power in the whole universe – mankind has not succeeded in inventing the perpetuum mobile -so we must assume, behind this power, a conscious, intelligent mind. This mind is the foundation of all matter. The visible, but transitory matter is not the real, the true, the substantial – for matter would not exist without the spirit at all – but the invisible, immortal mind is the true. Since, however, mind can not exist in itself, but every spirit belongs to a being, we must necessarily assume spiritual beings.
