Live your best possible life. How good can it get?

2022-05-01 Cynthia 4

An attitude of optimism is a revolutionary act.  It has the power—through imagination—to introduce miraculous transformation and change. Just as a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, a journey into our best possible reality begins with a single question: “How good can it get?”
Optimism is a rebellious act because this attitude often flies in the face of adopting an attitude of fearfulness that is typically encouraged by our governments and societies.  Optimism is perhaps the most rebellious when adopted even when situations truly are looking genuinely scary, and clear and present danger has arrived.

Optimism as Ultimate Survival Skill

How is it possible that an attitude of optimism might be the ultimate survival skill?  Author Jeff Bollow tells us that yes, that’s exactly what optimism is.  He adds that when you start to deliberately improve your optimism skills, the rewards will be phenomenal. There is a logic to this, since where you are today and where you want to be are literally in two different worlds–and at each decision point, every single day, we are either resisting or supporting some future unknown.  How we greet the unknown has everything to do with what actually happens next in our lives.
We see some evidence of optimism being an ultimate survival skill, since optimists improved quality of life, while also tending to live longer.   A study in 2004 of nearly 1,000 people found that optimists have a 23% reduction of the risk of heart disease, and a 55% reduction in all causes of death.  A meta analysis of 15 studies including 229,391 individuals found that optimism was associated with lower risk of cardiovascular events, and pessimism was associated with higher risk of cardiovascular events, on par with other well-established risk factors.

How Much of an Optimist Are You?

I began a talk about the Mandela Effect by acknowledging the importance of attitude for exploration–whether we’re going back in time to join Charles Darwin on his voyage aboard his ship the Beagle, or welcoming reality shifts, Mandela Effects and quantum jumps into our lives.  Those intrepid adventurers who truly love the unknown are adopting an attitude of greeting the unknown future with open arms.  Another word for this attitude is Optimism.
You can get a sense of where you naturally tend to be on the optimism scale that goes from maximum resistance to maximum support of the unknown:
  1. Cynicism — “Everything is bad, doomed, and untrustworthy.”
  2. Pessimism — “Things are likely to have negative results.”
  3. Realism — “Things just are what they are.”
  4. Optimism — “Things are likely to have positive results.”
  5. Idealism — “Everything will work out brilliantly.”

Increase Happiness Chemicals

happiness chemicalsSo now that we are seeing increasing evidence to suggest that a mindset of optimism is associated with lower cardiovascular risk, it’s possible to realize that encouraging optimism can play an essential role in our health and wellbeing.
It’s possible to move to a position of greater optimism, by increasing such happiness chemicals as: Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotin, and Endorphin.  We can  feel pleased with completing tasks and celebrating little things with Dopamine; we can be playful, kind and loving to enjoy Oxytocin; we can meditate and enjoy nature to benefit from Serotonin, and we can laugh or exercise to release pain-inhibiting Endorphins.
For best results, I recommend that we remind one another and ourselves to initiate and maintain positive onward-and-upward intentional guidance by asking, “How good can it get?” every day and in every situation.

2022-05-01 Cynthia 2If reality is different for each of us, and our thoughts and feelings influence our physical reality, how can we best employ an attitude of optimism in the real world–especially when surrounded by those who are not optimistic?
I received an intriguing email question this past month:
I was listening to a 2 or 3 year-old presentation by Bashar (channeled by Darryl Anka) as I was driving home, where Bashar essentially said the following:  (1) We are each creating our own, unique simulation – that has similar core reality to the one everybody else is experiencing.  (2) Our simulated reality is actually a series of parallel realities that changes billions of times per second – giving us an illusion of movement and time – however each frame is fixed. This is similar to the Many Worlds interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, but we don’t take all possible paths. (3) Instead, our frequency determines our path through the parallel worlds.  (4) Even our core/common simulated reality is splitting into at least two worlds. And, even though we are in the world of the lower vibe peeps, we are not of the world. That is, we can witness the lower vibe peeps … and their supporting cast – but it’s like we are watching them through a thick glass window. They don’t affect us — unless we choose to be affected.”
(1) We are each experiencing our own individual subjective realities, though we tend to assume that everyone is experiencing everything exactly as we are–yet when we really look more closely at this, we can see for sure this is not true.  I’ve researched and written about how it’s evident that we experience different realities from those around us–including people who are right with us when events unfold.  I’ve shared examples of this in my book, Reality Shifts, where I have had conversations with people where information was relayed that they swear they never said–and people have heard me say things I know for sure I did not say.
 
(2) We are continually receiving invitations to experience vast multitudes of possible realities in every moment–yet we seldom consciously recognize all of the choices we truly have.  This is the premise I describe in my book, Quantum Jumps.
 
(3) I have experienced that a combination of energetic attitudinal ‘vibe’ with level of consciousness together determine my path through the multitudes of possible parallel worlds.  The energetic attitude is something like feeling thankful and reverent, while the levels of consciousness have to do with awareness of “how big” or “how small” one is at any given moment in time.  So I’ve noticed two important, complementary qualities of self at play, that taken together can make a huge, sometimes startling, impact on reality.  At lower vibratory emotional levels, and when feeling smaller, effects can seem so small as to be nearly invisible or non-existent.
 
(4) We can sometimes bring people with us.  When we interact with others who are seeing clear evidence of some situation–such as a broken dishwasher, or a dog who seems to have cataracts–we have opportunities to acknowledge that “even though it looks, sounds, and smells like this dishwasher is broken,” we know we need it to be just fine right now.  We can thus invite those of us around us who wish to share our joyful intention, while doing that beautiful combination of staying high vibe while simultaneously feeling a sense of certainty and need in our gut that we are selecting the reality we need to–and already are large enough to– experience.  We can thus bring others with us into desired realities where what we know we need is what is actually unfolding, regardless what it looked like.  This kind of moving through doorways of possibility is the fine art of making Quantum Jumps.  I see from ancient teachings of yogi masters, Tibetan Buddhist meditation masters, martial arts masters, and Buddha and Jesus Christ that these kinds of miracles have been happening consistently for thousands of years.  We may notice them more right now, and this is a time of the birth of the 5th world, as predicted and prophesized, but from my direct experience, this can be a beautiful experience by which some of us can grab the hands of our loved ones and show them, “Yes, we know it sometimes LOOKS like a horrible situation, but actually, everything is fine.”  And this is how we enter the dawning of this 5th world. 

Dawning of the 5th World

We can see some signs of the dawning of a Golden Age, when we see animals turning gold, or new golden animals and plants we’ve never seen before.  We can see signs of this great change also in the return of animals and plants long presumed to be extinct.  We’re coming together all around the world, learning and growing together, and sharing inspiration and insights.
For best results, I recommend that we remind one another and ourselves to initiate and maintain positive onward-and-upward intentional guidance by asking, “How good can it get?” every day and in every situation.

What role does karma play in timeline shifts?  And how can we sometimes remember things so very differently, when there is little or no supporting physical evidence?
I received a fascinating email question this past month:
Isn’t shifting to a new timeline simply changing direction, like a ship changing course? For example a ship’s captain can decide to alter course and go in a completely new direction, but the captain cannot change where the ship has been.  So in the same way, a person cannot alter their past or Karma, which is actually good because we create good karma also. For example, let’s say in a person’s past they had a huge argument with another individual, you may have healed it within yourself but the other person has free will to choose how the deal with it. It is impossible to jump to a timeline where the incident didn’t take place because of the law of karma.  So aren’t we just really adjusting our current reality in order or adjust our future reality?  There is no jumping to a parallel timeline outside of karma.
With the karma question, let’s use a little more of an intense situation. Let’s say a 19 year old individual did something really dumb, was drunk driving and caused someone to lose their life. They paid their debt to society, and years later got their life more in order and became a spiritually aware human and began living as a new person.  Are you saying that they could manifest out of a timeline reality where their drunk driving never happened?  Not only did they create karma with the people and families involved in the accident, but also their family and friends went through this event with them.  And sometimes the negative things that happen are major growing points in life, so by jumping out of karma, we lose those lessons?
I replied that some of us notice that apparently, our official histories have actually changed.  For me, sometimes that means more money is now in my bank account, or my body is slightly different physically.  For others, sometimes long-standing ‘permanent’ physical disabilities are gone, as if they never existed.  Our memories are quite real, and certainly this is where karma comes in, since many of us clearly remember events that ‘never were.’  Yet, we know they were true. 
We see evidence of this now in some recent physics experiments where observational devices can witness different events even though they are at the same place and time.  The key to grokking this aspect of the quantum paradigm is to acknowledge that our Mind is capable of operating at a higher order of perception than our Brain–and sometimes, we can remember past events more than one way.
I have sometimes seen in my own life, and in the lives of those close to me, that the past can change quite radically from what we remember.  I’ve shared some truly astonishing reality shifts in my books, such as the time my friend, Susan, was talking with me on the phone about how she’d recently broken her leg, and during our conversation noticed that her leg was feeling itchy–and soon after, she returned to the same doctors who’d examined and X-rayed her leg, to discover her leg was not broken.  Not only was it now never broken (thus never needing a cast), but it never had been broken.  This created a bit of a confusing situation for all involved at that time, if attempting to make sense of what had just transpired. 
Such radical changes seem to happen not so much through someone intensely wishing for and intending such changes to their personal past, but as larger parts of a greater spiritual awakening and development.  The lessons are seldom lost when they are felt deeply on an emotional and energetic level, and thus are real to memory and Mind, despite not being part of any current physical historical records, in some cases.

Quantum Mind, Classical Brain

perennial philosophy GodI was recently talking with a physicist friend of mine, who’d just experienced a wild reality shift, involving reality being completely different from what he knew to be true, and what he clearly remembered.  Though we’d often discussed how reality shifts can occur, this had been more of a philosophical conversation for him, until one day this year when he experienced a shocking reality shift in his own personal life that he knew for sure was real.  He and his wife both shared memories involving certain medications being kept in a certain location in their home–yet these medications that had been prescribed were now gone.  The pharmacist and the doctor had no records to suggest that the prescription was still current, and they were not open to hearing a theory regarding quantum physics, consciousness, and observation to explain what to them was not a mystery at all. 
My physicist friend sincerely longed to know how is it possible for someone to have memories that no longer match confirmation and corroboration from current external physical reality?  Because, as my physicist friend put it, our brain might be expected to match with and correspond to all other aspects and details of this reality, so we could be expected to not even notice anything had changed.  Yet many of us are noticing some changes have occurred.
My go-to explanation for this seeming discrepancy that provides some of us with the ability to remember a different reality–a different reality–can be credited to the way that German philosopher, mathematician and scientist Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz defines consciousness.  Leibniz describes that consciousness arises thanks to levels of perception.  Leibniz is one of two famous inventors of Calculus (the other being Sir Isaac Newton), and I adore his brilliant way of showing that we have consciousness of something when we have a second order apperception of a first order original sensory perception.  For example, Leibniz writes in Principles of Nature and Grace:
“it is good to distinguish between perception, which is the internal state of the monad representing external things, and apperception, which is consciousness, or the reflective knowledge of this internal state, something not given to all souls, nor at all times to a given soul.”
From this view of levels of perception, we can envision how our memory can be thought of as residing in consciousness in our MIND, while the physical historical records and details, along with our brain can stay attuned with a given physical reality.  In this way, memory and the mind form a kind of collaboration capable of operating outside of everyday experiences of space and time–suggesting that sometimes we can experience such things as:  premonitions, deja vu, intuitive insights, and retrocausality.  With a quantum mind accessing various levels of memories, we can flex our sentient ‘muscles’ and gain increased levels of experience with and comfort in shifting reality, quantum jumping, and collectively experiencing Mandela Effects together.
We may begin to notice that what we consider to be karma might be also viewed as higher levels of our consciousness collaboratively co-creating with higher levels of others.  These higher levels can be viewed as converging at the very highest levels, at which point we can envision a convergence at a point where there is zero entropy.  This looks a lot like what Leibniz posited as being the “perennial philosophy.”  In about 1710, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz wrote a letter in response to someone asking him what philosophical school he followed; Leibniz replied that he follows the school of the perennial philosophy, “Philosophia Perennis.”

Optimizing Quantum Mind and Memory

When we acknowledge that we are not manifesting in a bubble, but rather are collaboratively co-creating, we can begin to better appreciate the value of the Mandela Effect.  Thanks to the Mandela Effect, we can witness the return of some long-extinct plants and animals, or so-called “Lazarus species.”  Thanks to the Mandela Effect, we can witness some instantaneous upgrades to our physical bodies, such as our hearts now being situated in the center of our chest, and our kidneys now being located farther from risk of possible injury from “kidney strikes” to the relative safety under our rib cages.  Our collective memory can sometimes remember that things were different–and sometimes, we can remember things more than one way.
For best results, I recommend that we remind one another and ourselves to initiate and maintain positive onward-and-upward intentional guidance by asking, “How good can it get?” every day and in every situation.

When you decide to do something, who does the deciding? When you see through your eyes, who does the looking?
Perhaps the most essential aspect of life is awareness of who we are–yet it is typically also the least examined.  While we speak in language that implies we presume to know that we have causal agency, and free will, the specifics of how this operates is seldom discussed or described.
I received a fascinating email question this past month:
In November 2019, I was preparing myself to travel to London on December 2019.   During November, I was looking at some YouTube videos and one video came up randomly.  The video is about stochastic processes.  They lecturer won the Fields medal few years back.   I very much enjoyed the theory, it is still simmering in my head to this day trying to connect it to other multiple theories:)  When I got to London, I decided to walk to Hyde park on a Sunday, and during my walk, straight in front of me was the Lecturer who won the Fields medal few years back.   [As if I was expecting him] I shook his hand and smiled, and told him it was a pleasure meeting him.  What is the cause and what is the effect in this story?”
One of the things that first comes to my mind when contemplating this question is that most of us are typically largely unaware that we, ourselves, are not as simple nor contained as we might first presume.  Indeed, it seems to me that we are energetic beings consisting of levels of awareness–of levels of self.

Levels of Self

perennial philosophy GodOne way to view our levels of self is to envision that we are limited in our perceptual abilities.  We clearly witness this with each of our senses, such that for example, we can only see the colors of red through violet in the ‘visible spectrum.’  We cannot see into the infra-red nor ultra-violet ranges.  We have similar perceptual limitations in hearing, such that we can only hear sounds that fall within our auditory range.  Might it be possible that when it comes to a sense of self, we face similar constraints?
We might thus envision ourselves experiencing a middle range of self identity frequencies.  Within such a conceptual range, we might expect to find ourselves well down from God / Creator / Divine Source.  English writer and philosopher Aldous Huxley outlined the core of an idea that is somewhat similar to this in his “perennial philosophy,” featured in his book by the same name.  He wrote:
“Philosophia Perennis: the phrase was coined by Leibniz; but the thing — the metaphysic that recognizes a divine Reality substantial to the world of things and lives and minds; the psychology that finds in the soul something similar to, or even identical with, divine Reality; the ethic that places man’s final end in the knowledge of the immanent and transcendent Ground of all being — the thing is immemorial and universal.”
Huxley’s conceptualization of God at the pinnacle of a pyramidal shape is particularly intriguing, since it provides a model by which we might imagine where individual levels of human consciousness fit in, somewhere down a ways from the top.

Free Will, and Cause and Effect

Now we can return to considering the original question regarding what is the cause and what is the effect, when we experience extraordinary moments of synchronicity such as just happening to run into the very person we’d seemingly randomly just recently viewed in content that just happened to pop up on YouTube.  Clearly, such an experience seems to defy the odds, and it almost seems like a magic trick, since something so unexpected has occurred.  Yet, when we consider how higher levels of self–like God–operate outside of time, and are capable of working in cahoots with others above our awareness–then we can start to see how all kinds of remarkable moments of synchronicity might occur.
Indeed, many amazing experiences in our lives might seem orchestrated according to a hidden order.  We might note that such experiences tend to happen most often when we are in a relaxed, daydream like state of mind, feeling detached from any stresses of the day, yet engaged and entangled with what we love.  This state of mind is a reality shifting state of mind, ideally suited for experiencing all manner of enjoyable reality shifts, quantum jumps, and the Mandela Effect.
We can envision how all the levels of self that comprise each one of us are working to create the experiences and events in our life. This is always happening, and always has the ability to bring miraculous quantum jumps that we need, when we need them.   There is thus no need for ‘convincing’, since truly whatever our subconscious needs we will likely experience. And likewise, whatever our High Self chooses for us is likely to occur as well.  The range of choices we have is a slice of self–the parts of ourselves that we have conscious awareness of.  This is where we can become aware of our ability, for example, to stop feeling stress–to become aware that we can let go of fears, anger, and sorrow.  From a detached, yet entangled-with-love state of mind, we are thus capable of making choices for reality selection based on a foundation of neutral emotional state–feeling relaxed, and accepting with a sense of faith.
With all of these qualities, then yes, whatever you truly need can instantly be yours, almost as if by magic. This seems to work best quite often when we forget we asked for it in the first place (truly release our focus of attention on what we’re hoping for).  We can shift to another timeline through manifestation/meditation/prayer–remembering that this kind of timeline selection works best attaining that relaxed state of neutral acceptance.
Naturally I suggest providing additional positive onward-and-upward intentional guidance by remembering to always ask, “How good can it get?”

What can we learn about reality when comparing notes between quantum physicists and indigenous language and philosophy?

Some deep insights regarding wisdom with respect to the nature of reality comes from Indigenous elders, who emphasize that everything that can be created already exists–and this existence is an intrinsic, core quality of Nature.  Some of these ideas are beautifully described in the book, Original Thinking, by Glenn Aparicio Parry, which I experienced firsthand when attending some dialogues described in this book with scientists, indigenous elders, and linguists.  Physicist David Bohm and Harvard-educated Blackfood elder Leroy Little Bear attended the first such dialogue, hosted by the Fetzer Institute in Michigan in 1992.  Also in attendance was linguist Dan Moonhawk Alford, who helped illuminate shared areas of agreement between quantum physics and indigenous wisdom. David Bohm, once an associate of Einstein, had been the key instigator behind this first meeting–and this had been a dream of his for decades, ever since reading what Benjamin Lee Whorf comments about Native American languages being verb-dominated.  Linguist Dan Moonhawk Alford describes what this verb-centric quality suggests:

Whereas every sentence in English must properly have a subject, a noun or noun phrase, and a verb, many if not most Native American languages can have sentences with no nouns at all. ‘Rehpi,’ a full
sentence in Hopi referring to a celestial event, means ‘flashed,’ where we have to say ‘the lightning flashed.’ But this goes much further: sa’ke’j says that when he’s speaking mi’kmaq back on the reserve, he can go all day long without ever uttering a single noun.  This statement is mind-boggling to most English speakers.  So much of our facts and knowledge are wrapped up in nouns, so what would all that knowledge look like in a language that doesn’t value nouns in the same way? This includes all concepts, all the way to ‘god’.

Dan Moonhawk Alford documented eight key areas of agreement between the quantum physicists and the Native Americans.  These include:

1. Everything that exists vibrates
This point of agreement is important because it moves beyond our usual ‘thingy’ or particle notion of existence based on raw sensory impressions, which is favored in the indo-european language family, and allows a justification on the part of Native Americans for the existence of spirits.
2. Everything is in flux
(Sa’ke’j:) The only constant is change–constant change, transformations; everything naturally friendly, trying to reach a more stable state instead of bullying each other around. That kind of process the English language doesn’t allow you to talk about too much, but most Native American languages are based on capturing the motions of nature, the rhythms, the vibrations, the relationships, that you can form with all these elements, just like a periodic table in a different way: relationships rather than a game of billiards,
where you only count the ones that go in–all of their motion doesn’t count.
3. The Part Enfolds the Whole:
… not just whole is more than the sum of its parts.  (Sa’ke’j:) When we wear leathers and beads and eagle thongs and things like that, it’s not seen as totally ludicrous, as decoration – it’s seen as containing something you want to have a relationship with.
4. There is an implicate order to the universe
(Sa’ke’j:) This implicate order holds everything together whether we want it to or not, and exists independently of our beliefs, our perceptions, or our linguistic categories. It exists totally independently of the methods or rules that people use to arrive at what it is, and David Bohm’s captured that with the great phrase the implicate order, versus the explicate order of things that they can explain quite concretely, such as a rock falling out of a window. This also agrees with the lakhota phrase ‘skan skan,’ which points to the motion behind the motion.
5. This ecosphere is basically friendly
Sa’ke’j maintains that the planet, and especially the Americas as well as the physical universe, are basically gentle and friendly: You don’t have an electron jumping and bullying into other(s) unless it knows it’s missing a stable state and knows it can reach that stable state and increase its own stability.
6. Nature can be taught new tricks

(Sa’ke’j:) We also agreed that that world out there that exists–that reality, not imaginality–can be taught new tricks with the cyclotron; and what was raised in the meeting was, are these new tricks beneficial, or will they create a hostile universe on their own, independent of scientists, once they teach electrons how to jump and how to amass the energy to jump, and it becomes a bullying, hostile biological world. Reminds me of Alan Watts talking about how the universe has had to learn how to get ever smaller and ever larger as we probe it with microscopes and telescopes, receding ever further in the distance as self observes itself.
7. Quantum Potential and Spirit
After listening to the physicists and American Indians talk for a few days, it struck me that the way physicists use the term potential, or quantum potential, is nearly identical to the way Native Americans use the term spirit. They all agreed there was something similar going on.
8. The principle of complementarity
Physicists for all this century have realized that our usual notion of bipolar or black & white opposites was insufficient when working with nature. The first clue came when they asked incoming light, ‘Are you particle?’ and it answered Yes; ‘Are you wave?’ and it answered Yes. This is equivalent to asking whether something is a noun or a verb and getting a yes answer to both–which is exactly how Native American language nouns are made up: as verbs with suffixes that make them temporarily into nouns for discussion sake. this yes-yes complementarity is foreign to Indo-European languages, but quite
common in other language families (such as the Chinese notion of Yin-Yang), and represents a higher level of formal operations, in Piaget’s terms, referred to by some as post-formal operations–that which lies beyond normal Western Indo-European development.

In this time when we may feel we have limited choices, awareness that we can choose and jump between Timelines can be priceless.  There is advantage in working in collaboration with our higher consciousness when making such jumps, which is why I recommend asking the question: “How good can it get?” rather than overly micro-managing the manifestation details.

Timeline Questions

I recently received questions about Timelines:

“On a metaphysical level, what is a timeline, how are they created, and do we create them, or are they already in existence, because you teach about quantum jumping. I presume we can jump timelines, correct? But how were they created so we are able to jump them? I mean, can an individual create a timeline, or is it just the collective. I guess I wonder who created the dimensions as well?”

The basic definition of metaphysical Timelines starts out corresponding fairly well with conventional Timelines, which is that we recall sequences of events that we experience in the form of ordered events in linear time.  For example, we might recognize the sequence of events in our typical day, starting with waking up and doing our usual morning activities.  Such sequences of events are generally taken for granted as being part of a linear, unchanging timeline.

In this time when many people feel we do not have the level of choices we used to have, the awareness that we can jump and shift between timelines is very exciting.  Such timeline jumps usually happen between levels of consciousness.  Typically, timeline jumps happen at a subconscious level that we’re not consciously aware of.  We might be focusing primarily on a to-do list, with activities we intend to complete for the day.  When we choose to allow our intuitive higher self to run the show today, then we are giving ourselves permission to set down the to-do list in favor of new opportunities that we might sense arising, accompanied by synchronicity, a sense of deja-vu, or goosebumps.  With such awareness, we are thus acknowledging that we can make a Timeline jump at any given point.  Our self awareness benefits from our accepting higher levels of emotions such as: gratitude, thankfulness, forgiveness, respect, reverence and ecstasy–and being in love with being alive.  Even asking a simple question such as, “How good can it get?” is enough to activate this internal process.

Metaphysical Timelines are different from the linear quality of conventional Timelines.  We might recognize a divergence between conventional and metaphysical Timelines any time we sense a perception of being adjacent to parallel possible realities.  We can experience these other possible realities when we notice reality shifts and Mandela Effects, where we notice that a past sequence of historical, recorded events does not match what we remember.  We can also experience these other realities when we make a choice to make a quantum jump.

We are now witnessing shared experiences of Timeline quantum jumps in the form of the Mandela Effect, where groups of people have shared memories that are different from historical records.  We thus may find others who remember, for example, that the term “kidney punch” used to have meaning and significance when the kidneys were actually situated in our lower backs, and were thus vulnerable to injury if struck.

When we consider the idea that the reality each of us observes is continually in a state of ‘collapsing’ out of having been smeared in a blur of quantum probability wave functions–then we can start to appreciate that we are each ‘creating’ the reality we experience in the way we make a choice of what and how we are observing.  Our individual observations may not necessarily always agree with the subjective observations of others, and this is very much at the core of the quantum paradigm.  All possibilities might thus be considered to already exist in the form of pure potentiality–only to be experienced in the form of reality when we invest our observational attention and energy in a particular choice of what we are focusing on, and how we are focusing.  Wisdom keepers from indigenous traditions appreciate the concept of original thought being that all ideas already exist–and there is an excellent book, Original Thinking, by Glenn Aparicio Parry that delves into this concept.

Individual Timeline Shifts

Individuals can choose and select Timelines, and to the degree that we are choosing Timelines that are aligned with our higher dimensional levels of consciousness, we can sometimes witness instantaneous positive results. It can help to know that there have been physics experiments that challenge objective reality, demonstrating that two observers at the same place and time can witness completely different observations.  These versions of the double split experiment were conducted with six entangled photons and two experimental recording devices in a collaborative project involving scientists Physicists at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh and the University of Vienna in Austria.  They succeeded in conducting the Wigner’s friend classic Gedankenexperiment (thought experiment)–meaning there is an observer who is watching another observer.

The philosopher Leibniz originally defined consciousness as involving a second order awareness of a primary, first order perception–such that there exist levels of awareness providing one with a sense of individual consciousness.  As a fascinating side-note, both Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz and Sir Isaac Newton independently ‘invented’ Calculus at the same time, providing us with a glimpse of how the Indigenous concept of all ideas already existing might operate.

Leibniz’s concept of consciousness can be viewed as working a bit like dimensional consciousness, from the sense that we gain levels of instant understanding when viewing “Flatland” on a piece of paper from our usual 3-dimensional perspective.  If there was something concealed or hidden from view to “Flatlanders” living in 2-dimensional space on the flat plane of a piece of paper, they would not easily be able to know what else was depicted on their 2-dimensional space that any person living in a 3D world could easily view at a glance.  When we acknowledge that we can gain additional levels of information and awareness via higher dimensional levels of ourselves, we similarly can effortlessly “think outside of limitations” including linear time.

The ability to experience individual Timeline Shifts often starts by first feeling a close proximity to an adjacent reality–one that we feel attuned to and affiliated with.  This awareness might come through awareness of seeing a possible future reality in a dream or daydream, or it might appear as a knowingness. Some of the best ways to practice such conscious Timeline Jumps is to make a jump to a reality that feels within close reach–something that feels possible to your subconscious mind.

You can start asking questions like, “How good can it get?” as you are sensing that there might be a reality where you have more prosperity, better health, and better relationships.  I recommend starting with focusing on what truly matters most to you, and that you feel are attainable, for best results.  Then you can start experiencing the sort of reality shifts I describe in my books, Reality Shifts and Quantum Jumps.  Then you can have experiences such as the one I had where I ran out of nutmeg in my kitchen cupboard–it wasn’t there.  Since I knew I could experience a reality where the nutmeg was in my cupboard, I shut the cupboard door, walked down the hall, and came back to the kitchen and looked again.  I knew if I kept doing that, I might see it.  This is an example of quantum jumping, of timeline jumping.  When I walked down my hallway, I was aware that I can literally walk into another reality in my own home, so that when I come back to that cupboard on the fourth or fifth try, I can open the cupboard and there will be what I need and what I was looking for.

To start playing with Timeline Jumps I recommend going for things that your subconscious can believe might happen.  You can prompt your subconscious to be more open-minded with regard to what kind of Timeline Jumps are possible by reading first-hand reports of people making quantum jumps, as reported in the Your Stories section of RealityShifters.

Collective Timeline Shifts

Each and every one of us is constantly quantum jumping and reality shifting, as this is the way Nature operates.  Each time we make a choice, based on what we feel we truly need, we are experiencing a slightly different version of reality than we had been just a moment before.  Sometimes on a collective level, we may notice that groups of us are remembering things differently than the official version of history.

Groups of people can join together with shared observational attention and energy–for such things as prayer or meditation groups, for example.  The International Mandela Effect Conference (IMEC) has been tracking some such positive collective Timeline Shifts in the form of “mandanimals” that have returned from extinction (noted as “Lazarus” species), or are Golden or Rainbow or White colored, or have other remarkable qualities.

As to the source of Timelines and Dimensions, this becomes a philosophical question.  Some of my favorite book sources to address these matters are philosopher Nicholas Rescher’s book, Axiogenesis, and Tarthang Tulku’s book Space, Time, and Knowledge.

Many of us feel we’re living in surreal times, where facts don’t seem to matter, and divisiveness threatens harmonious relationships with family, friends, and neighbors.  Fortunately, we can tune between realities like radio stations, helping shape the world we collectively co-create.

Tuning between Realities

I recently heard someone comment that he felt like he was moving between different realities these days, as if he was driving down the freeway and hearing different radio stations coming in as he drove along.  He said it felt unpleasantly surreal, since there seemed to be no sense of agreement, free from contentious divisiveness.  I love this analogy about experiencing life as if we’re like picking up different competing stations on the radio–tuning between the channels we hear, and the realities we acknowledge as factual and true.

First of all, this description matches what I sense when I feel a presence of simultaneous possible realities.  I sometimes literally witness reality shift “flip-flops,” where for example, I feel like I’m coming down with a cold one minute, and the next minute I feel like I’m just fine.  I’ve also witnessed real-time flip-flops in computer search engine results, and with cataracts in our family dog’s eyes being there one minute, and gone the next.

Secondly, I can relate to the stress so many of us have been feeling recently with regard to experiencing certainty of various sets of “facts” pertaining to heated topics du jour.  Even to mention some of these topics is to risk being de-platformed from social media sites these days.  Such censorship doesn’t seem in keeping with the kind of transparency, integrity, and ethics required of authentic scientific discussion–yet it has somehow become normalized. I sincerely hope that people can respect one another and listen to those who have different perspectives and information in open public discussions.

Quantum Coherence & Entanglement

We can get some hints about what might be going on from recent quantum physics experiments. There are a couple of characteristics of quantum physics that influence reality on all levels:  Entanglement and Coherence.  Quantum coherence has to do with the way quantum states exist in a kind of energetic blur or superposition of states, coming out of this probability wave state (decoherence) when observed, and the quantum wave function is collapsed.  Quantum entanglement has to do with the way that even far-flung quantum particles, once entangled with others, move in sync with others.

We can glean some intriguing insights from considering ways that Entanglement and Coherence operate in natural systems, on the macroscopic scale and in our daily lives.

Several years ago, physicists successfully conducted experimental demonstration of everlasting quantum coherence–a phenomenon that occurs when a quantum system exists in a superposition of two or more states at once.  Maintaining such a state of persistent coherence is significant, since typically such states are destroyed within a fraction of a second, due to interactions between the quantum system and its surrounding environment.  We now know that Nature likely employs some kind of natural mechanisms for coherence protection, so that plants, for example, can benefits from quantum coherence they depend upon for photosynthesis.  In our daily lives, we can think of this state of being in quantum coherence is something like being aware that we can tune in various radio stations–various physical realities.  One way this is openly acknowledged is the science of the placebo effect, which I describe in my book, Quantum Jumps.

Mental Radio

When Tuning between Realities, Choose Respect, Sovereignty, and Love

Think back on a time when you might have experienced something akin to picking up two simultaneous realities–like two radio stations–at the same time.  Hopefully you were able to determine which station was broadcasting something you enjoyed, and hopefully you were able to establish connection with that broadcast.

With awareness that the choices we make shape us and our subsequent experiences, we can “tune in” realities that have a better long-term endgame potential.  We can make choices based on respect, sovereignty, and love–thus steering our life experiences (and those we’re entangled with) in positive directions.

This past week I heard from people feeling angsty after having watched the Netflix film, “Don’t Look Up.”  When we are thinking about what we can do to be part of a positive future for our planet, we can tune in the radio station/reality that has an idea of a long-term positive endgame potential, such as the “Life Economy” (as opposed to “Death Economies”) proposed by John Perkins, author of New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.  I interviewed John to discuss what that might look like in the episode, Creating a Life Economy with John Perkins on my podcast, “Living the Quantum Dream.”

We can already start to see evidence that this approach of creating a Life Economy and making a positive difference locally, right where we are, is already having global impact, when we see news that the Monarch Butterfly is making a comeback.  Some estimates show that the Monarch butterfly population has soared by 4,900 percent since last yearDixie Layne, president of Friends of The Monarchs summed up this good news by saying, “So we have to understand that we individually we can’t do anything, but together we can. We can change the planet. It’s not too late to bring them back in the right numbers.”

Success Against All Odds

2021-11-17 Cynthia boulder creek

Thanks to quantum physics, we can see bigger opportunities and better realities than seem physically present in our lives; we can help ensure success against all odds.

Handbags of the Gods

I greatly enjoyed watching the Quantum Businessman’s video discussing how “it’s bigger on the inside,” covered in his video, Gucci of the Gods.  One of the things I most enjoyed about watching the Quantum Businessman’s video about pocket universes is that it brings up some of what Chris Anatra (aka “the Quantum Businessman”) is calling soft disclosure.  This particular soft disclosure has to do with ideas about ancient artwork that shows up in many civilizations around the world–not just in one place.  This artwork indicates that there exist some kind of “handbags of the gods,” or “Gucci of the Gods,” as Chris Anatra puts it.  These mysterious handbags seem to show up everywhere, and both these bags and some watches seem like they might be more than they appear.  They might have something to do with playing with space, time and reality, such as we see in popular shows such as “Doctor Who.”  Doctor Who’s Tardis device is famously bigger on the inside than the outside, while traversing time and space.

The Quantum Businessman’s “Gucci of the Gods” video also presents some fascinating thoughts of one of the world’s top physicists, Alan Guth.  I’ve mentioned Alan Guth many times, usually in conjunction with a physicist that I’m very fond of, Dr. Yasunori Nomura, who I interviewed in 2014 after meeting him at a premiere of the documentary “Particle Fever” at UC Berkeley.  Alan Guth and Nomura co-authored a paper, but the big deal about Alan Guth is that he is recognized as a being one of the top thought leaders having to do with ideas about the Big Bang and the inflationary universe.

How does this tie in with everything about Mandela Effects, reality shifts, and things being bigger on the inside than they are on the outside?  Good question!

Classical Paradigm as Subset of Quantum Paradigm

When we acknowledge that some aspects of quantum physics can never be classical, and that all of quantum physics can be derived from five simple axioms, we find ourselves at the remarkable junction where we can start to envision the Classical, materialist paradigm as a subset and special case of the larger, more universal set of the Quantum paradigm.

If you’re familiar with set theory, then those pictures of circles with some circles intersecting and a Universal set containing all other sets may be familiar.  Basically, what we’re noticing is that Quantum Physics and the Quantum Paradigm may be more like the Universal set, rather than a subset of Classical Physics.  There’s no way we can fit quantum physics inside classical physics, but we can fit classical physics into the quantum paradigm.

Bigger on the Inside

This realization that quantum physics and the quantum paradigm is primary, and classical physics, paradigm and logic is a special case subset inside the larger quantum paradigm immediately reminds me of the notion of things being “bigger on the inside.”

When we look at the idea of pocket universes and bubble realities, we can immediately feel inspired to flip the entire conceptualization that we typically have regarding something small like a pocket or a purse.  We might tend to naturally assume that since quantum physics deals with the realm below the Planck scale having to do with such miniscule things as photons and electrons, it would be a subset and special case within our familiar classical paradigm with its associated classical logic.

As we look more closely at the extraordinary properties of the quantum realm, we see what Alan Guth describes in the “Gucci of the Gods” video by the Quantum Businessman.  Alan Guth talks about the likelihood that our inflationary universe indicates that there are lots and lots of bubble universes.  These bubble universes are out there all over the place, and essentially we are most likely living in a multiverse. This is also what I’ve been writing about in my books, Reality Shifts and Quantum Jumps, and this is a huge idea for each of us to contemplate in our everyday lives.

Why it Matters

You might well be wondering how any of this has anything to do with you, which is an excellent question.  One of the main reasons this is of such great importance is that very often, when we think of classical physics and material realism, most of our mainstream educational systems emphasize that such a materialist view is foremost, primary, and dominant.

People who consciously or unconsciously go along with this worldview can easily become confused, depressed, or just feel stuck or trapped by circumstances. We might feel that we are looking at all the facts that are right in front of us.  We might feel we are facing an indisputable, unchangeable situation. Yet nothing could be further from the truth.

When we realize that the quantum paradigm is dominant, then we are better aligned with what has been taught in spiritual faiths and traditions, including the perennial philosophies.  These perennial philosophies of love, kindness, compassion, and having faith that even when things seem extremely difficult, you can actually witness miracles.  And these miracles might come in the form of things that you need, and maybe you don’t notice that it’s happening.  You might think, “Well, I needed that.  It’s just some coincidence.”

After considering these ideas from quantum physics, we can begin to take a closer look, with a sense of wonder, reverence and awe that maybe we always get what we need.  And those times when we notice we’re not seeming to get what we are intending, perhaps what’s really blocking us is that our heart is not in it, or we’re not keeping our eyes open to the fact that in some ways what we’re dreaming of and wishing for is already here.

Success Against All Odds

The key idea we can get from this insight that reality is “bigger on the inside,” thanks to quantum physics, is to not be emotionally triggered by situations.  We can look inside every situation, to discover what is happening right now that we can be grateful for.  And to recognize that we don’t need to trust the depressing aspects of what looks like physical truth–because a lot of historical facts change.  They can change in ways that lots of us are noticing together, which is what we call the Mandela Effect.  They can also change specifically just for us, which would be a reality shift.  And if we observe a change that we  were intending, they can shift as quantum jumps.

These big ideas are brought to you from the seemingly tiny world of quantum physics, which is “bigger on the inside,” helping to ensure the possibility of success against all odds.

2021-11-03 Cynthia

This past month I was fortunate to be able to talk with physicist Tom Campbell during a special live broadcast of International Mandela Effect Conference (IMEC) Open Tables.  Tom reviewed ten examples of the Mandela Effect, and remembered things differently for five of them.  Toward the end of our conversation, Tom discussed four factors that he considers to be involved in the Mandela Effect phenomena. Tom said, “I thought about it a little, because I knew that’s what you guys were about, and I found four different things that contribute to it. So I don’t think it’s just one thing, I think there are several things that lead us to this.”  

You can view this part of our mini-conference with Tom Campbell in its entirety in Tom Campbell’s Big TOE, Virtual Reality, and the Mandela Effect, or starting at about time marker 1:19  to start at this part of the conversation.

IMECtomcampbell(1) Observers have Individual Subjective Realities

The first thing Tom mentioned is that reality is only in the mind of the observer.  Tom states:

“Well, every observer has his own reality because it’s his interpretation of the data that he gets.  So for one there is not a reality ‘back then’ that existed, there is no ‘master reality,’ that exists.  It only exists in the minds of the players, and the players all have a somewhat different reality, because they interpret the data they get.  So there isn’t a reality that is kind of the right answer to what it was.  So that’s one thing.  So just looking from a perspective of consciousness, there is no ‘the reality that was.’  It doesn’t exist–never has existed.  It’s a bunch of individual realities.  And now we can look at it and see what we in general, most of us you know, saw or heard.  So there’s that idea that there is no right answer to what it was; we all have our own reality.”

I love how Tom starts contemplating the Mandela Effect with this notion of Subjective Reality (in contrast to Objective Reality), since this is a view of the quantum paradigm that I feel is at the heart and core of both quantum physics and reality itself.  Physicist George Weissmann and I wrote about this in our paper, The Quantum Paradigm and Challenging the Objectivity Assumption. The really BIG idea here that is paradigm-shifting in the extreme is that quantum physics shows us quite clearly that there may be no such thing as objectivity, or ‘one true reality.’

(2) Pattern Matching in Consciousness

This next factor that Tom Campbell considers as involved in people experiencing the Mandela Effect has to do with the way consciousness operates with attributes of perception, and how we perceive and remember, with pattern matching.  Tom elaborates:

“We perceive things and remember things in our memory.  This is just kind of the fundamentals of the way consciousness works, we work with pattern matching.  That’s kind of the fundamental way we do things.  We work on pattern matching, and what happens is we’ll get a new image, we’ll go into our data bank to find a pattern that fits it.  Now if we can find an exact fit, oh great, we’ll put that out.  But if we can’t find an exact fit, we’ll pull out anything that even fits a little bit.  If it fits sort of well, we’ll pull that out, and that what it’ll be.”

Tom then shares his experience with people frequently calling his wife a similar, yet incorrect name, that starts with the same letters.  Tom’s wife’s name is Pamela, yet frequently when they go out and meet people, even after she’s introduced herself as Pamela, a few minutes later, someone will say, “Oh, Patricia.”  So Tom is pointing out that we might be fooling ourselves with some examples of what we think are Mandela Effects, that actually have more to do with the fallibility of our minds and memories.

In the more than 20 years of research I’ve been conducting in this field of the Mandela Effect and reality shifts, I’ve been careful to winnow out cases in which this kind of mental error occurs.  I’ve also referenced this past year the work of Tony Jinks and his book, Disappearing Object Phenomenon: An Investigation, since he made a comparison of experiencers of personal Mandela Effects (or DOP, or reality shifts), and found no statistically significant differences in mental functioning and processes of experiencers versus non-experiencers.

While I’ve witnessed cases of what Tom calls pattern-matching, and what researchers like Elizabeth Loftus refer to as false memories, I have been careful to include first-hand reality shift reports in the hundreds of pages in the Your Stories section of the realityshifters website where experiencers are certain they are not simply mis-remembering.  Elizabeth Loftus was surprised to learn that she was ‘mis-remembering’ some things when she appeared on the Mandela Monthly show with Moneybags73 and the Ripon Rabbit in July 2020.

(3) Collective Consciousness

The third factor that Tom Campbell considers as involved in people experiencing the Mandela Effect has to do with the way collective consciousness operates with attributes of perception, where we are part of a group or community.

“Another thing we should think about that’s in this thing too is there’s a thing called collective consciousness.  Collective consciousness is any group of people who have a connection who feel they have a connection together.  They basically form a collective consciousness.  So you have have a collective consciousness where you work with all the people you work with, there’s a collective consciousness that goes with that.  Or if you do child care, there’s a collective consciousness that goes with that.  You have a collective consciousness with your nation; you have one with humanity.  You know, Carl Jung called these archetypes. They’re basically collective consciousness pieces that you identify with and you connect.  Well, the collective consciousness is just the vector sum of all the consciousness that are in the membership that are in the group.  So you get stuff out of that collective consciousness, and you take it on.  So you know you become more like that.  Now you affect the whole, but you only affect the whole a little bit, because you’re one person and there’s maybe 10,000 in your collective, so you don’t affect the whole that much, but the whole affects you more.  So you work for IBM and after you’ve been there 4 or 5 years, guess what?  You start wearing blue shirts, you start dressing like they do, you start talking like they do, you start having the same interests that they do, because it’s part of the collective consciousness.”

This is really interesting, since it helps to clarify how sometimes we might see someone start to remember something as a Mandela Effect, and then within a few minutes we might witness them “take the download” or succumb to the “Mr. Smith Effect” where suddenly they say that actually, it seems to them that what they remember is whatever matches the current historical records.  Sometimes, we might even notice the influence of the collective consciousness groups we belong to if we start remembering something more than one way.  It can feel like we remember both, yet know that’s impossible, since we must have only had one previous timeline of choices and events.

(4) Paranormal Likes to Open Our Minds

This fourth factor involves the way the Cosmos engages with us in order to get our attention and open our mind to new and expanded possibilities.  Tom incorporates the idea of the fundamental consciousness, or Larger Consciousness System (LCS) here:

“Sometimes the LCS can change things up on us just to get our attention and open our mind.  It likes to do that.  For instance, crop circles.  You know you have crop circles and overnight, one night… totally dark, maybe a few lights running around, no sound.  And the next morning, you’ve got 34 acres covered with a very complex design that isn’t just straight lines.  It’s all kinds of curves and things that would probably take a surveying crew of 20 people like three weeks to lay it out with their transoms if they were trying to do it.  So the system does things like that just as a wake up calls: ‘Hey! Think out of the box!  Reality is not just this little thing you think it is. Open your mind.’  You know there’s more going on here than you’re aware of.  Well again we jump to conclusions and make up the first thing comes to our mind, ‘Oh, aliens did it–you know, the aliens must be doing those things.’  Well, not necessarily.  You know the Larger Consciousness System triggers lots of people with paranormal experiences, just to open their minds.  I got triggered to open my mind with an ability to debug software.  I know a lady who a week after her mother died, she got a phone call from her mother–the phone rang, she picks up the phone and it’s Mom, telling her that ‘I’m okay. I just wanted to let you know everything’s fine,’ and of course she was freaked out, so she took the phone and slammed it down onto the receiver, because she thought somebody was messing with her, and what a cruel joke it was.  And then she realized that wasn’t the case at all–she just hung up on her mother who was trying to get in touch with her.  So people have these kinds of things.  The system goes out of its way to help us see bigger pictures, because only when we see bigger pictures do we start becoming seekers and start learning and growing.  So the system does that all over, so part of the Mandela Effect that was my fourth one is that the system often plays these sorts of games just to rattle us a little bit–to get us to open our mind, and think out of the box, instead of just being stuck in this little materialist groove.  And it just does that to individuals and it does that like in crop circles to whole populations and it does other things as well.  So a lot of the extraterrestrial things that people see you know, with spaceships landing in their yard and chatting with aliens and so on–all the system has to do to create that is put that data in their data stream.  That’s it.  And then it’s there, it’s real.  They interpret it, and it wakes them up and after that, they’re different people.  They start researching.  They start wanting to understand things.  So that’s part of the Mandela Effect.”

This concept of getting our attention is something I discuss in my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, and it is thoroughly covered in the book Contact Modalities: The Keys to the Universe by Grant Cameron and Desta Barnabe.  Clearly, one of the biggest messages I’ve gotten when asking the Cosmos, “Why do these things such as reality shifts happen?” is the simple two word answer:  “Be Cause.”  This is a time of  Great Awakening, where we can step into our larger consciousness ‘shoes’ with some truly wonderful reality shifting and quantum jumping capabilities.

How good CAN it get?

One of the common assumptions about some of the ‘weirdest’ aspects of quantum phenomena, is that we don’t need to be concerned with it, since it happens in the realm of the very, very, astonishingly small.

Our everyday life experience tells us that macroscopic systems obey classical physics, and we’ve even received reassurances from brilliant physicists that we need not concern ourselves with the possibility of quantum effects in daily life.  It’s understandable that we then naturally expect that quantum mechanics must reproduce classical mechanics results in the macroscopic range–which is known as “the correspondence principle,” that physicist Niels Bohr established in 1920.   Proponents of this premise have presumed for the past century that any transition from to classical mechanics operates according to a kind of coarse-graining mechanism, whereby measurements performed on macroscopic systems that have limited resolution, and are unable to resolve individual microscopic particles will behave classically. 

As discussed in my book, Quantum Jumps: scientists now confirm we can see quantum phenomena at macroscopic scale! “It is amazing to have quantum rules at the macroscopic scale. We just have to measure fluctuations, deviations from expected values, and we will see quantum phenomena in macroscopic systems”

Can we see quantum correlations at the macroscopic scale?

How Quantum Correlations Can Survive

Researchers Miguel Gallego (University of Vienna) and Borivoje Dakić (University of Vienna and IQOQI) were surprised to discover that quantum correlations survive in the macroscopic limit when correlations are not independent and identically distributed (IID) at the level of microscopic constituents.

This idea of independent and identically distributed (IID) is the key here, since it is often presumed to be generally true in experimental laboratory settings.  When quantum measurements are taken and calculated for the corresponding correlations, experimental designs typically involve a large number of repetitions, since the key assumption is that each run of the experiment must be repeated under exactly the same conditions, yet independently from other experimental runs.  Experiments are designed with the idea in mind that they ensure that each quantum random “coin toss” is fair and unbiased, so the ratio of “heads” to “tails” comes out evenly, with either “heads” or “tails” expected 50% of the time.

As it turns out, this assumption, that plays such a pivotal role in the expectation that there exist only classical physics happening past some macroscopic limit.  What these recent research results show is that what is really going on is that macroscopic groupings of clusters of quantum particles that are “coarse-grained” together interact with each other, with Borivoje Dakić stating:

“The IID assumption is not natural when dealing with a large number of microscopic systems. Small quantum particles interact strongly and quantum correlations and entanglement are distributed everywhere. Given such a scenario, we revised existing calculations and were able to find complete quantum behavior at the macroscopic scale. This is completely against the correspondence principle, and the transition to classicality does not take place”

What Are the Implications?

classic physics subsetWhile we have long presumed the wide, wonderful, weird world of quantum physics to operate either alongside or within the classical realm, the real truth of the matter is that we’re seeing ever-increasing evidence to suggest that classical theory and physics might best be viewed as a special case within the bigger quantum reality.

By appreciating the possibility that quantum logic is primary in the natural world, we see how humanity stands to benefit from embracing the innate quantum logic implicit in everything. We can thus envision how the addition of quantum theory ushers in a new view of all areas of study, including:  biology, psychology, sociology, cosmology, statistics, and history. The idea that quantum phenomena occur at all levels—not merely at microscopic quantum levels—indicates we are able to develop a more functionally predictive and naturally based quantum perspective that promises to completely revise our worldview.
