Does Matter Exist?

Opinions are not truth

Epistemology explores what distinguishes justified belief from opinion. Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy that examines abstract concepts which include , knowing, substance, cause, identity, time, and space. Philosophy is the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence.

Epistemology, Metaphysics and Philosophy are approaches that many people use to explore the the existence of matter, however, all of these approaches are simply opinions.

It doesn't matter how eloquent or beautiful an opinion like Quantum Mechanics or Relativity might be they are still opinions and ultimately fall short and fail to explain the Universe the Scientists are so keen to understand.

It doesn't matter how many people support an opinion to the degree that it is classed as a justifiable belief, in my books an opinion is still not truth.

Reality Made Up

Science seeks to explain everything using evidence presented to us through our five senses. Logic and critical thinking are used to seek truth and the intellect decides.

Our five senses are instruments through which we receive information about the world around us. These instruments of perception are limited to the kind of energy our bodies are capable of detecting. Science therefore creates more elaborate instruments for detection but there is always a limit.

The scientific approach to seeking truth is like asking a computer to describe its user. The information we receive through our five senses is electrical in nature and these electrical impulses are then 'made sense of ' by the mind.

So in effect each mind is making up what it perceives and calling it truth or reality.

Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle

Werner Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle explains how the act of observation affects the results of all experiments. Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle clearly shows how scientists continue to chase after clouds even when the evidence is staring them right in the face telling them that they have reached a cul-de-sac.

The famous Double Slit Experiments in Quantum Physics demonstrates how the electron behaves as a particle when observed and a wave when not observed.

The obvious conclusion here is that the intellect alone is not up to the task of explaining reality and by science doggedly adhering to old limiting beliefs simply frustrates progress.

The observer and the object are connected

If something is affected by observation does that not in itself point to the fact that the observer and the object are connected in some way? To science, which depends completely on the intellect, this is ignored and the scientists simply go back to the drawing board.

Science is showing that we and everything in the Universe are connected. There is a collective mind that holds all that we perceive as real and it is the mind that creates the illusion that we are separate. Science proves the connection exists and fails to appreciate the power of thought and how thought affects every observation. Thought itself is vibration and it is subtle differences in the frequency of thought that gives rise to the diversity we experience.

Sound is the vocalisation of thought. Sight is the visualisation of thought. In fact every sense is designed to materialise thought so that we can interact with it.

Is it therefore such a leap in thinking to look at yourself in the mirror and appreciate that your physical body is a creation of mind materialised out of the vibration of thought?

Matter is thought materialised

We are stuck in an illusion because we choose to believe in the illusion that keeps us separate and in conflict. We continue to hold fast to beliefs that no longer serve us and in doing so we imagine that matter really exists because the mind that created the illusion continues to feed us the thoughts that maintain the illusion and protect the ego which is its ultimate goal.

Matter is an illusion created by mind and the stuff of matter is thought. It is the frequency of thought that dictates the appearance of matter. The connection between thought and matter is clearly demonstrated by science which has shown that when we interact with matter through observation we affect it.

I also propose that we also create it.
