In the quantum world relationship is the key to determine everything. In quantum physics relationships are not just interesting; to many physicists they are ALL there is to reality.
One physicists, Henry Stapp describes elementary particles as ‘’a set of relationships that reach outward toward other things’’. [a very different picture to that of tiny planets moving around a nucleus that we learned at primary school, not so?) Scientist gave up searching for things because as they experimented to find elemental particles, the found things that changed form and properties as they responded to one another and to the scientist observing them. In place of tiny billiard balls moved around by contact forces, there are what amounts to so many patterns of active relationship, electrons and photons, mesons and nucleons that tease us with their elusive double lines as they are now position, now momentum, now particles, now waves, now mass, now energy – all that in response to each other and the environment.
In these words (either Margaret Wheatley or Donah Zohar -not sure which wonderful author penned which bits), explain why so many spiritual teachers tell us that we live in a field of unlimited potential – and that we are creating our own reality. For me I love it when a profound thought is supported by a scientific fact! AND the fact that relationship is key to determine everything, made me realise one of the key principles of manifestation: It’s not the thing you want, it’s your relationship to the thing!
