"The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which created them." 
- Albert Einstein

In 2000, Time Magazine named Albert Einstein the "Person of the Century".

Over a two-year period, from 1998 to 2000, the editors of Time Magazine studied which individual had the most influence on planet Earth during the 20th century. Everyone from Adolph Hitler to Elvis Presley was considered. It ultimately came down to two people: Albert Einstein and Mahatma Gandhi.

Albert Einstein was ultimately chosen. Einstein's breakthrough discoveries, which gave birth to quantum physics, changed the way we look at the physical world. They led to advancements in computer technology, and now, quantum physics is changing the way we look at life itself.

The word "Quantum" means small. Physics is the study of the physical universe. By looking under a microscope, Einstein scientifically confirmed basic truths about life, nature and the Universe, which help explain the human evolution of consciousness that's currently taking place.

By the end of this article, you'll have a basic understanding of Quantum Consciousness. This is a foundation for understanding Source Work, the new Energy Medicine.

Top Ideas about Quantum Consciousness

Now, we'll upgrade your awareness, and look at the new consciousness from a quantum physics perspective. Not being a quantum scientist, I will make this as simple and as basic as possible. Here are the basic building blocks of Quantum Physics that you should know about:

1. We all come from the same Source.
The Universe is made up of particles and waves. If we go back 13.7 billion years to the moment before the Big Bang, all of the  particles in the known Universe were squished together into a single particle the size of a green pea.  This means that you, me, your best friend and your worst enemy, were once part of the same pea sized particle that gave birth to this expanding Universe.

The particles that make up the Universe are now separate and expanding, but energetically, we are still linked. Everyone on this planet - all life and all physical existence - emerged from a single point of oneness and unity. We all come from and we are all still part of one unified, quantum field of energy.

In 1944, Max Plank identified the existence of this Unified Field. He called it Matrix. He believed that, underlying everything we can see, our bodies included, there's an intelligent and conscious mind. Gregg Braden calls this the Divine Matrix. I call this Source. Others call it God. Whatever you call it, the Divine Matrix is much larger and infinitely more powerful than the Global Matrix that rules your material existence.

2. We are all connected.
Gregg Braden tells this fascinating story: In 1997, there was a documented experiment in Geneva Switzerland, in which one sub-atomic particle of mater was split into two parts. The two parts were then separated. One half was sent seven miles in one direction and the other half was sent seven miles in the other direction. The two parts were now 14 miles apart.

Scientists discovered that, although the two particles were separated physically, they were still connected energetically. When one particle was disturbed, the other particle responded, as if it was having the same experience. this tells us that, once matter is physically joined, even if it's physically separated, we are still connected energetically. All of us.

Out heart brains are also connected energetically to one another. Our heart brains are the Satellite Dishes described on the 4DQ website. We are all in constant communication with one another, through the Divine Matrix, which acts as a collective heart brain. 

We are all connected, in ways that we are only beginning to understand.
 
3. All matter is energy.
"Energy and matter are deeply entangled, it is impossible to consider them as independent elements."
- Bruce Lipton, the Biology of Belief

Energy and matter are one and the same. E=MC2. But let's take this one step further. The Universe isn't even solid. The Universe is mostly empty. We tend to think of space as empty and matter as solid. But in fact, there's nothing solid about matter either. Matter is composed mostly of space. It's completely unsubstantial.

Look inside an atom. You might think that an atom is a solid ball. But most of the atom is empty space. Certainly, you could say, the nucleus at the center of an atom is solid. But no, even the nucleus jumps in and out of existence, just as photons and electrons do. The most solid thing you can say about sub-atomic matter is, it's composed of information. Sub-atomic particles are bits of data. Atoms aren't' things. They are only tendencies. All matter is energy and all energy is thought.

This is stunning information, because it forces each of us to reconsider what Reality really is. Reality isn't solid or concrete. Reality is particles and waves of light and information.

More than this, we aren't solid or concrete either. We are made up of pure energy. We are concentrated waves of consciousness and light. If you can really feel and grasp this, it will change your life forever. On the quantum, microscopic level, you and I are pure light and information. This is what we are. You might say that we are spiritual beings first and physical beings second.

In the movie The Matrix, Neo transcends the physical limitations of the Reality Grid we call the Global Matrix. Symbolically, he experiences a spiritual transformation. He no longer identifies with the temporal fears that define the physical world. Matter is no longer matter. Matter is data and light.

4. Energy is information.
What is real? How do you define real? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain. - Morpheus, in the move, The Matrix

Your brain doesn't know the difference between reality and perception. Your brain can't tell the difference between what's taking place "out there" in the physical environment and what's taking place "in here", within your mind. What's happening within you created what's happening outside of you.

Scientific experiments have shown that, if we hook your brain up to a computer and ask you to close your eyes and imagine an object, the same area of your brain lights up, as if you were actually looking at the object. Your brain doesn't know the difference between seeing with the eyes and imagining with the brain.

So, what is Reality? Is Reality what you're imagining with your brain or is Reality what you're seeing with your eyes? The truth is, your brain doesn't know the difference between what is sees in its environment and what it remembers, because the same specific neural nets are firing.

More than this, everything you see, hear, smell, taste and touch is filtered through your brain and its Reality Constructs. Did you really see a rabbit come out of a hat? Did you really see a hijacked plane hit the world trade centers? What is real? What is perception? Perhaps hypnosis is far more common than any of us imagine. Media literacy takes on a whole new meaning, when filtered through quantum mechanics.

Your brain is an interpreter of information. Everything that your five senses take in from the world is filtered through your brain. So, what you are experiencing in this moment is not reality, but your brain's interpreting Reality through the filter of your thoughts, emotions and beliefs. Reality is a projection that we are making, onto a unified field of infinite possibilities.

This includes your emotional brain.  If you are fearful that someone close to you is going to betray you, your emotional brain will behave as if you have already been betrayed. Your brain doesn't know the difference. Because emotion is vibrational by nature, you will then send out a vibration that resonates with - and attracts - betrayal.

This is true for your reptilian brain. If , during the coming era, you imagine that you will be penniless, homeless or starving, your reptilian brain will react to this stimulus, as if your survival is threatened. Whether or not your survival is actually threatened isn't important. If you live in a state of terror, panic or fear, your brain may behave as if your life if threatened.

By the same token, if you really believe that infinite possibilities and opportunities are in front of you, your heart brain will resonate with the joy of unlimited possibility. Understanding these principles inside and out, can change your Reality Constructs during the coming era.

5. Collapsing the Wave
Here's another way of looking at all of this. Each of us exist in our own Quantum Pond. Remember, we aren't talking about a real pond of water here. We're talking about a field of energy. 

You are the pebble, thrown into the center of your own quantum pond. The ripples that form are your thought waves, coming out from your own consciousness.

But your quantum pond is part of a greater Quantum Ocean. There are Wave Patterns in the greater common ocean, which intersect with your personal thought waves. When these external wave patterns intersect with your own thought waves, they are called Interference Patterns.

When Galileo put forth his own thought wave - that the world is round and that it rotates around the sun - his thought wave ran into an interference pattern with the popular belief that the earth was flat. He was told to recant his theory or face execution. Galileo complied.

9-11 sent some huge thought waves into motion. 300 million people believed, based on what they "saw", that 9-11 was the act of a few Muslim terrorists. This thought wave became a massive tidal of emotion, big enough to propel us into war. 9-11 was the "point of conception", when a lot of our current paradigms were born. How do you collapse a wave (or in this case, tsunami) that massive?

The more people there are who share a common belief, the bigger the wave pattern behind that belief becomes. The more people there are who share a common paradigm, the bigger the interference pattern is, if your thoughts and beliefs collide with the collective paradigm.

The New State of Collapse is about collapsing old thought waves and belief patterns that no longer serve us. This can be done in several ways:

1. Telling the truth can collapse a wave of deceit. Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. used truth and logic to collapse the false paradigms of their time.
2. Emotional release. Both laughing and crying break up dense energies connected with negative thought patterns and belief structures.
3. Bringing in a higher thought vibration and collapsing dense frequency waves with focused intention. Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Theresa used focused intention, to bring in higher vibratory states of love, non-violence and service to humanity.

What you are learning to do is collapse the quantum wave function, beyond the grid of three dimensional space and time. Just by reading this paper, you have begun to do this.

6. You are the One.
Let me share a story with you. There was a psychologist names Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, who worked at Hawaii State Hospital for four years. While he worked there, Dr. Hew Len cured an entire ward of criminally insane patients without seeing any of them. How did he do it? He'd review an inmate's chart and while he was looking at the chart, he'd look within himself to see how he created that person's illness. As he healed himself, the patient began to heal.

In "Zero Limits", author Joe Vitale writes, "that ward where they kept the criminally insane was dangerous. Psychologists quit on a monthly basis. The staff called in sick a lot or simply quit. People would walk through the ward with their backs against the wall, afraid of being attacked by patients. It was not a pleasant place to live, work, or visit."

But Dr. Hew Len says that, "After a few months, patients that had to be shackled were being allowed to walk freely. Others had to be heavily medicated were getting off their medications. And those who had no chance of ever being released were being freed.

"Not only that, but the staff began to enjoy coming to work. Absenteeism and turnover disappeared. We ended up with more staff than we needed because patients were being released, and all the staff was showing up to work. Today, that ward is closed."

What did Dr. Hew Len say to himself, over and over again to heal his patients? "I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thanks you." Thant's all. 

"I was simply healing the part  of me that created them," he said.

Dr. Hew Len was applying an ancient practice called Ho'oponopono. Ho'oponopono means,  "to make right." In the quantum sense, everything in this "Participatory Universe" is your own creation. It's all a holographic projection. Reality is a movie and the projector is inside your brain. Everything in existence came out of your own thoughts, emotions and beliefs. 

This means that everything in the Concrete Universe is a holographic projection. None of it exists, except as a projection from inside of you. Therefore, it's up to you to heal them. 

You are the One. Loving yourself is the key. According to Ho'oponopono, it's that simple. As you love yourself, you heal yourself and as you heal yourself, you improve the world. Love collapses the tsunami wave of fear, division and reactivity. 

You are the One doesn't mean that you are more special or more important than the next person. It doesn't mean that the world's problems are all your fault. It simply means that there is no out there. If I'm angry with you, I'm angry with myself. If I love you, I love myself. You are a holographic projection of my own consciousness. Self is Universe. There's no distinction between you and me, or between self and Universe. It's all in here.

Now, we can understand the effect that a Mahatma Gandhi or a Mother Theresa had on their "Quantum pond". Each recognized that they were "The One". It was up to them to change the Universe that they created, and they did. Now, it's up to you.
