Quantum physics has revealed that the true nature of our reality is much “weirder” than we previously thought. Findings in this realm challenge various belief systems that are still firmly held by a large portion of mainstream science. The modern scientific worldview is predicated on assumptions closely associated with classical physics. This has become dominant in academia, more specifically, materialism, which is the idea that matter is the only reality, despite the fact that multiple experiments have clearly shown how certain empirical phenomena cannot be explained by classical physics.
“QM [quantum mechanics] has questioned the material foundations of the world by showing that atoms and subatomic particles are not really solid objects—they do not exist with certainty at definite spatial locations and definite times. Most importantly, QM explicitly introduced the mind into its basic conceptual structure since it was found that particles being observed and the observer—the physicist and the method used for observation—are linked. According to one interpretation of QM, this phenomenon implies that the consciousness of the observer is vital to the existence of the physical events being observed, and that mental events can affect the physical world.” (source)
This is precisely why Max Plank (the originator of quantum theory) regarded consciousness as “fundamental,” and why he regarded matter as “derivative from consciousness.” It’s why Eugene Wigner (Nobel Prize winner in physics) stated that “it was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.”
The way we think, feel, perceive, and more are all fundamental to the nature of our reality, to the creation of our human experience, to the existence of physical objects themselves. Quantum physics has shed light on facts that challenge the current framework of accepted knowledge, and perhaps this is why there has been such a resistance towards these important discoveries. These findings have the power to change our world forever.
“We knew that the Earth was flat, we knew that we were the center of the universe, and we knew that a man-made heavier than air piece of machinery could not take flight. Through all stages of human history, intellectual authorities have pronounced their supremacy by ridiculing or suppressing elements of reality that simply didn’t fit within the framework of accepted knowledge. Are we really any different today? Have we really changed our acceptance towards things that won’t fit the frame? Maybe there are concepts of our reality we have yet to understand, and if we open our eyes, maybe we will see that something significant has been overlooked.” – Terje Toftenes (take from the film “The Day Before Disclosure”)
The 3 Experiments
Because of Facebook algorithm changes, posting the same articles can hinder the performance of our Facebook page. Recent findings, and prior findings within quantum physics, are extremely fascinating, important, and relevant. We’ve already written about these experiments in depth, and have multiple articles on them. A brief description will be provided with links to the other articles for more information.
1. The Double Slit Experiment
In this experiment, a double-slit optical system was used to test the possible role of consciousness in the collapse of the quantum wave-function. The ratio of the interference pattern’s double slit spectral power to its single slit spectral power was predicted to decrease when attention was focused toward the double slit as compared to away from it. The study found that factors associated with consciousness “significantly” correlated in predicted ways with perturbations in the double slit interference pattern. (source)
“Observations not only disturb what has to be measured, they produce it… We compel [the electron] to assume a definite position… We ourselves produce the results of measurement.” (source)

2. Delayed Choice/Quantum Eraser
Like the quantum double slit experiment, the delayed choice/quantum eraser has been demonstrated and repeated time and time again. For example, Physicists at The Australian National University (ANU) have conducted John Wheeler’s delayed-choice thought experiment, the findings were recently published in the journal Nature Physics. (source)
The delayed choice experiment illustrates how what happens in the present can change what happens(ed) in the past. It also shows how time can go backwards, how cause and effect can be reversed, and how the future caused the past.
“If we attempt to attribute an objective meaning to the quantum state of a single system, curious paradoxes appear: quantum effects mimic not only instantaneous action-at-a-distance, but also, as seen here, influence of future actions on past events, even after these events have been irrevocably recorded.” – Asher Peres, pioneer in quantum information theory (source)(source)(source)

3. Quantum Entanglement
“Space is just the construct that gives the illusion that there are separate objects.” – Dr. Quantum (see video in article linked below)
Quantum entanglement suggests that two objects (electrons) created together are “entangled.” This means that if you send one to the other side of the universe, and do something (like spin it) to one of them, the other will act in the same manner instantaneously.
Either information is travelling faster than the speed of light, or the vast distance we perceive between the objects really doesn’t exist at all. Either possibility is mind altering.
Entanglement was recently verified by the Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, led by Professor Howard Wiseman and his team of researchers at the university of Tokyo. They recently published a paper in the journal Nature Communications confirming what Einstein did not believe to be real: the non-local collapse of a particle’s wave function. (source)(source)
Wiesmen stated that:
“This phenomenon is the strongest yet proof of the entanglement of a single particle, an unusual form of quantum entanglement that is being increasingly explored for quantum communication and computation.” (source)

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” – Nikola Tesla
