The Real Nature Of The Universe: The Equation Doesn't Really Equate

Updated on June 30, 2009

However, keep in mind that all of the apparent voodoo which we call quantum physics is a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a question mark only because we are always trying to superimpose the sheer illusion of linear time onto a pure and perfect structure which is free from those lowly human constraints. Mathematicians and physicists turn themselves inside out into Mobius strip pretzels trying to determine the apparently chaotic state of subatomic physics where two identical things can seem to be at two different places at the same time, where individual particles can be linked and instantaneously manipulated across galaxies, where multiple states can appear at the same time, where cats in a box are half dead and half alive, and where the essential lack of definability of absolutely anything creates a sub-microscopic theatre of the absurd where you can determine a speed but not a position, a position but not a speed, or only heaven knows what sorts of hopelessly convoluted Brobdingnagian illusions.

After all, it is a basic tenet of modern physics that there are certain events which can be repeated a million times and always get the same result. However, as soon as that same event is observed, the result becomes diametrically opposite.

You see, all we have to do is to introduce this simple equation:

delta-X delta-P > h/2


delta-X is the uncertainty in the position of the particle
delta-P is the uncertainty of the momentum of the particle
h is some strange constant with a very small value and thus we don't really consider it much

What this states is that every object has a certain amount of uncertainty to it and thus that equation is concocted. When you measure the position of a something, you reduce the uncertainty about the position of that something. But to compensate, the uncertainty of the something's momentum must be increased in order to make the equation equate. And vice versa. If the uncertainty of either value were zero then the two uncertainties taken together would be zero, and the equation that was so lovingly invented would be false.

And we couldn't have that, could we?

The reality of completely fixed space / time, right down to every single vibration of each and every single superstring at the heart of matter, does not adhere to our erroneous perception of choice and cause and effect. We postulate the linear progression of time without realizing that we are in the position of the ant walking around an apple and believing that he is traveling in a straight line. The ant can no longer perceive the actual shape of the apple any more than we can perceive the actual shape of irrevocably fixed space / time. There can be no ifs, as to actually have just one single choice at one time in the existence of the universe would negate it all as surely as multiplying by zero. Everything is here, exactly where it is because it has to be, and that's all there is to it. As the ancient Zen saying goes: "What is is, what isn't isn't."

Although by now many Hub readers of a more orthodox scientific bent are likely entering into paroxysms of frustration, I stand by my determination that you, and every bird, and every insect, and every rock, and every planet, and every galaxy is what it is, where it is, how it is, because that is the way it has to be. There are no alternative universes, other dimensions, or sub-atomic eternal uncertainties or unmeasurabilities, or the laughable fallacy of entire parallel universes being created with each and every decision of any kind by anything! Those are all constructs devised because most modern physicists can't see the forest for the trees.

The basic factor is simple and elegant well beyond any quantum mumbojumbo theory: We exist as part of an indelible fabric in the body of the universe.

And you would definitely be forgiven if you modify that last sentence to read: We exist as part of an indelible fabric in the body of God.

      Time is a singularity, so time is not the 4th dimension.

      Hi there, just wanted to mention, I liked this

      article. It was inspiring. Keep on posting!

      Kindly note that the quote is: "The basic factor is simple and elegant well beyond any quantum mumbojumbo theory..." That is not saying that quantum theory is mumbojumbo but that there are some theories within the realm of quantum mechanics which are.

      I was with you the whole time till the last part about quantum theory being "Mumbojumbo". The fact that people misinterpret it, does not make it a false theory, and if i remember, you did use it as a reference at one point in your article.

      Thanks! I'd like you to meet my friend Jean-Paul Sartre, except he's not here either. :)

      Interesting stuff ! I would simply add my two cents worth and say that time, space and the universe don't actually exist.
