I've been hearing a lot of references lately in movies and TV shows to the Heizenberg Principle
. (And not just on the SyFy Channel:) Maybe you're like me. I don't believe in coincidences, so when something starts to register, I take it as a sign and try not to ignore it.
Hang in, this is kind of strange.
Also known as the Uncertainty Principle
, Heizenberg's Principle revolutionized the science of physics and philosophy. At its most simple, this quantum mechanics theory makes a case that reality changes based on the person observing it.We influence a situation, just by observing it.
Take that a step further and it gets even more freaky.
Scientists have determined that not just observing it, but how we feel
about a situation, influences it's reality.
For example, when experiments with cold fusion were going on, experimenters noticed really inconsistent results. Sometimes the experiment would work, sometimes it wouldn't. Then one guy analyzing the data found a common denominator. He noticed that the attitude of the experimenters seemed to be a factor in the success or failure of the trials. In other words, if the experimenters believed the experiment would work, more often than not, it did. If they didn't believe it world work, it didn't.
So, here seems to be the point. (Or, 'the sign':)
What science is theorizing, is that reality is created by the observer. And further, that the things we perceive are identical to the ideas we have about them.
You may have heard me use the phrase, "Thoughts are things" , which absolutely fits in with Heizenberg. But another way to say that might be, "Celebrate what you want to see more of" or "Happiness precedes the happenings". Because, based on Heizenberg and quantum mechanics, "Observation and attitude creates our environment".
