Atomic Awakening

The progress of science has now reached a turning point. The stable foundations of physics have broken up. . . The old foundations of scientific thought are becoming unintelligible. Time, space, matter, material, ether, electricity, mechanism, organism, configuration, structure, pattern, function, all require reinterpretation. What is the sense of talking about a mechanical explanation when you do not know what you mean by mechanics?

Alfred North Whitehead wrote those thoughts in his 1967 book, Science and the Modern World. Scientists have been studying atoms and how they act when they show themselves in our system of reality for years, but they still don’t understand the nature of the atom. Scientists understand there are spectrums of light, but they fail to realize there are spectrums of matter as well. We are conditioned to think in single-line thoughts so we believe events are complete actions. But in the probable system of life, those events are just a fraction of their entire existence.

If the atom was capable of phasing in and out of what we call time then these same atoms would appear in other systems of reality. If the atoms that support the body exist in other realities, our consciousness would function in these realities as well.

The mechanical explanation for these mind-blowing truths is right around the corner. Hang on. We’re in for quite an atomic awakening. We might begin to understand other portions of the self and the atoms that support it.
