Four weeks ago, I did a post about the nature of reality. And two weeks ago, I did a post on energy. These posts were the start of what was going to be a series of posts on the latest advances in science relative to understanding of reality and how it applies to you creating the best version of yourself, which is what this blog is all about in the first place.
However, as I meditated on this approach and how to walk you through all of this stuff, it occurred to me that there are probably others out there in the world that have already created posts on all of the latest scientific advances and have done it much better than I have! In addition, what I really want to focus with you are the outcomes of this latest science - not walking you through how to get there.
When I let go of my plan, it turns out my intuition was correct. As soon as I had the thought about finding other sources for this content, I had two posts show up in my YouTube suggestions feed that were perfect! The first is Quantum Gravity Research, and the second is PBS Space Time.
First, let me say that I don't buy into everything that these two sites are saying. For example, the Quantum Gravity Research team assumes that reality has self-organized, but they don't really say from what. To me, this is a gap in their thesis on reality. That said, on the Quantum Gravity Research channel, they have two really fun videos. "What is Reality?" and "Hacking Reality" that are great, funny, engaging overviews of the latest physics research on reality. The PBS Space Time channel has great videos on the history and findings of both classical and quantum physics researchers.
The science on these two sites is solid. So, if you want to indulge yourself in all the nitty gritty detail, please dive in and consume as much as you want. There's quite a bit there.
But what I really want to spend time on with you are some of the things that this contemporary science is telling us about our experience of this space/time universe that we find ourselves in.
Now, all of this is very mind stretching and maybe you are skeptical. If that is the case, go check out those YouTube channels for some more information. However, these inferences of the research is really where I want to get to with you and discuss what it all means in our lives.
My translation of this science and what it means to you on your journey to being the best version of yourself are these four points:
Don't worry about the details of all of this just yet. I'll be going into all these concepts in detail over the coming weeks with you. However, for this week, let's focus on this last point briefly to wrap up for this week. If you followed my advice from last week's post, and you're working on your 2019 goals, then take this last concept into consideration. Let me say it again:
Cause and effect relationships are true in the space/time that we experience. However, since space/time also has quantum properties where potential futures are infinite, it is possible to co-create a future possibility in the present moment without the corresponding cause and effect relationship.
In other words, miracles are totally possible, and you can collapse space/time in the present moment to produce results much, much faster than you ever thought possible.
So how does this apply to goals?
Take this blog post, for example. Initially, my linear, engineer mind was working on laying out a sequence of posts, i.e. the HOW, to walk you through many concepts over many weeks, the WHEN, to lead you to where I ultimately wanted to go, which was the concepts presented in this post, the WHAT. But when I let go of the HOW and WHEN parts of what I was planning, I was almost immediately presented with a couple of resources that provided much better descriptions of the physics behind the useful concepts. So, this saved me weeks if not months of getting to where I ultimately WANTED to go.
So, now that I have collapsed time for all of us here, we can move forward and leverage these concepts now to make 2019 even better than 2018. Look, I understand that this goal setting prescription probably goes against everything you've ever been taught about goal setting and certainly does not conform to the SMART goals formula. However, give this 21st century goal setting prescription a go when you are writing out your goals for 2019. I'm going to come back next week and dive a little bit deeper into it with the ultimate aim of setting you up to create your goals for 2019 to have your best year ever! Have a great week.
