Notes for Touching Your Core Self
Bell’s Inequality Theorem
Irish physicist John Stewart Bell put forward a quantum theorem that has revolutionised the way reality is considered. In brief, the theorem states that when two sub-microscopic particles are split and moved to a distance from each other, the action on, or of, particle ‘A’, is instantaneously reproduced with particle ‘B’. This interaction does not rely on any known link or communication and is considered to stand above normal physical laws of nature, as it is faster than light. Prior to such findings it was thought nothing could transcend the speed of light.
Nick Herbert, in an interview published in High Frontiers writes: ‘THERE ARE LOTS OF THINGS that are being kept from the public as far as the subjects of physics and consciousness are concerned. Bell’s Theorem was proved in 1964, and it is still not taught in physics classes, and you don’t hear it on your science news programs. A theorem is a proof, and no one has found a flaw in this theorem. It’s such a simple proof that a high school kid can understand it. So physicists can understand it. They have various ways of trying to ignore it, but it can’t be refuted because it’s so simple.’
To quote Gary Zhukov, ‘Quantum mechanics is the theory. It has explained everything from subatomic particles to transistors to stellar energy. It has never failed. It has no competition.’
The implications of the theorem are enormous. Something can be in two places at once. Apparently distant objects, or people, are intricately linked in an immediate way. There is no separate existence as we previously thought. Our view of the world is not one supported by the facts of physics. Time and space are transcended. David Bohm, an eminent physicist, goes as far as to say that all things in our observable universe are inextricable linked. Nothing has separate existence. From The New Dream Dictionary.
The identity, and the way of life connected with the identity, appear to be quite vulnerable, and when threatened, bring about as much reaction from the members of a tribe or nation, as one sees when something like an invading bacteria threatens the integrity of the body. In both cases there is massive defence and counter-attack, especially where the apparent attacker has different religious or cultural beliefs. In the body the bacteria or virus are attacked and where possible destroyed. In early communities this was exactly the way the tribe or nation defended against invasion by a foreign culture.
Organisms are any collection of cells which together form an independent life form. Such living organisms have many different ways of maintaining their existence and the cohesiveness of their often countless community of cells. One of the main features of an organism is that it is in some measure distinct from its environment and even from other similar organisms. In fact it is difficult to think of anything that we feel might have life, that is not in some way separate from its surroundings and other life forms. Even viruses are called organisms.
Organisms have other features such as some means of feeding themselves, reproducing and protection. In our own organism, our body, we are used to hearing the term ‘immune system’ and its vital role in surviving. Our own organism is not only capable of feeding and reproducing, along with other functions of life such as breathing, excreting and responding, but it has an amazing defence system too. Millions of bacteria are killed daily by our defence systems. The reason being that within the strange and wonderful community of cells we call our body, there is some form of basic identity which defends itself against attack. Perhaps we could call this integrity instead of identity, especially if we associate the word with ‘integration’. From Eye of Dreams
Let us look at two very simple things many of us have experienced. Most of us have eaten something which our body has tried to reject. Our being has its own integrity which it tries to protect. Integrity is like the word integrate, to bring into unity, or hold united. Our being has to have this integrity or integration or else it could not survive. Cells would go on growing as they do in cancer where this integrity has been disturbed. So when something poisonous is eaten, the self-regulatory process guarding this integrity tries to get rid of the poison. A powerful spontaneous movement occurs leading us to vomit. This can be a painful thing and we may thus try to block the movement. Here, the movement arising from the self-regulatory action is blocked because our conscious self dislikes the discomfort or indignity of vomiting. Or else we may co-operate and even drink plenty of water to flush the stomach as we vomit. From Transformation
