Quantum Jumping Reality Selection

I just saw the new Men in Black 3 movie this past weekend, and appreciated how characters in the movie recognized the significance of choosing between possible parallel realities–the idea first proposed by American physicist, Hugh Everett III. One character, Griffin, played by Michael Stuhlbarg,  was particularly skilled in sensing possible realities. Griffin identified real-time cues and indicators that suggested which reality path happened to be unfolding at any given place and time, which is a wonderful talent to have when making life and death decisions.

NextAnother wonderful film featuring a character who sees and chooses between parallel realities is Next. In this fast-paced action-adventure movie, Nicolas Cage plays the role of a Las Vegas magician with the ability to see two minutes into his own future. This future viewing ability is a skill he’s developed to the point he knows how choices he makes in present time will each unfold.

Entangled MindsWhat’s particularly interesting about these two films having to do with parallel universes and our ability to move between them is that in both story lines, the characters with the ability to most freely move between have the ability to see near-term events unfolding in the next minute or two. This may seem to be something amazingly uncommon, yet in actuality, researchers have conducted studies demonstrating that people definitely do have an inner sense of what is about to occur moments before it actually does, such as Dean Radin describes in his wonderful book, Entangled Minds. This skill is typically subconscious, revealing itself when people’s autonomic nervous system responds in advance of a person viewing emotionally evocative material in a slideshow in which images are randomly selected.

Ways We Can Detect Parallel Universes

Precognitive Advance Viewing — Precognitive advance viewing of a short period of time in the near future is currently the most popular method in Hollywood movies for depicting the reality selection process between parallel worlds. This type of awareness of parallel worlds of possibility is typically described as a kind of short-term temporal effect, in which a person is aware of many possibilities opening up in their immediate future, such as the next few minutes.

Future Memory — Future memories are quite literally memories of future events. This type of awareness of parallel universes of possibility can sometimes be confusing, simply because most of us consider our memories to be indicative of what’s already happened, not what may yet transpire. Future memories arise in much the same way past memories do, when some kind of cue or trigger reminds us of something that has happened–or will happen.

Danger Alert — Another way that parallel realities show up to us in real life is through an intuitive sense of imminent danger that sometimes arises for no outwardly obvious reason. We might have a sense of being in a terrible crash when getting into our car, for example, feeling a body-wide sensation of nervousness. We can view this as being given a choice to take (or not take) to a jump to a parallel reality. Considering that many realities exist… and some are much more enjoyable than others, it’s to our advantage to keep our energy up and our imagination tuned to “how good can it get?” We keep moving onward and upward, and things really do keep getting better and better!

Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World

Repeating Events — As I describe in my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, sometimes a sequence of events repeats, as if some kind of spacetime eddy current is looping back around to try something out one more time. I attended the first day of a class one time when the woman to my right handed me and the hostess of the event her business cards… and a few minutes later, the hostess returned and asked for her business card again.

I hope you’ll enjoy watching and sharing my YouTube video summary of Quantum Jumping Reality Selection–and please feel free to leave comments either on this blog or on my YouTube video page!

One of the benefits of asking the question, “How good can it get?!” while traveling between parallel universes is that you’re likely to get some pretty wonderful answers. Happy travels!

Plants are Pets, Too

Cynthia Sue Larson with her ficus tree

“I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest against the earth’s sweet flowing breast” — Joyce Kilmer 

I was startled one afternoon to receive a small potted plant from my friend, Helen, who begged with empassioned urgency, “Please take this ficus… Peter’s killing it!” One look at the small plant was all I needed to feel love and empathy for it, as I saw the few leaves it had were drooping, and it’s soil was dry with an air gap around the edges of dirt in its pot. The tiny ficus reminded me of Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree, with its diminutive size and stature so much smaller than one would expect from a tree.

This same ficus tree now stands taller than me, and has been a permanent resident in a place of honor by a south facing window in my living room for the last couple of decades. It has been through many repottings and branch trimmings over the years, and its trunk is now broader than my arm. I feel a sense of peace and love when I sit near this tree, in much the way I feel calmed when stroking a dog or cat’s fur.

We can benefit from feeling love and affection for plants every bit as much as we do for our furry companions, and some horticulturists have noted and written about how  trees are pets, too. There are many similarities between plants and animals, with both depending on humans for care and optimal living conditions. Plants thrive when loved and cared for, and humans thrive when surrounded by supportive plants. Recent research studies have shown that plants have consciousness and the ability to communicate in ways that protect and defend their area, albeit on a much slower time scale than animals typically respond.

When I visited Dean Radin at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, I was delighted to see he had a lovely tree in his office. I write about this encounter in my book, Aura Advantage: How the Colors in Your Aura Can Help You Attain Your Desires and Attract Success:

“When plants have been hooked up to lie detector equipment, they’ve shown strong negative responses Aura Advantageto being around someone who simply thought about burning a leaf, and responded equally strongly when a visitor arrived who killed plants for a living. Other researchers working with plants have found that they respond in a positive way to someone who feels love for them. When I participated in recent plant studies conducted at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, I could see the auric field of the plant expand as it responded to IONS Senior Scientist Dean Radin, author of numerous scientific research papers investigating various psychic phenomena. The plant reacted each time Radin stroked a tender new leaf, or brought some water for it when its soil was dry. At the same time as the plant’s auric field increased, the ECG-like monitoring equipment displayed a prolonged spike.”

My favorite night spent in a hotel was unquestionably the night I spent in a tree house in Oregon… where I felt a sense of ecstatic bliss being ensconced in a tree’s energy field all night long. I highly recommend the experience of spending time in a tree house if you ever get the opportunity, as there is no way I can adequately or completely describe the sense of joy and wonder I felt as I felt the tree swaying me gently while holding me securely all night long.

If you feel somewhat skeptical that plants can demonstrate consciousness in any way humans can relate to, I encourage you to check out some of the amazing work being done at Damanhur, Italy, involving music of the plants. My first encounter with plants playing music was at the second international conference on science and consciousness in Albuquerque, New Mexico, when plants played music on Stephen Halpern’s synthesizer, with amazing results. As I reported for Enlightenment News in June 2000,

Steven Halpern and Music of the Plants at the 2000 ICSC

Steven Halpern and music of the plants

“The evening Steven Halpern concert was truly amazing, because Steven had a very special guest performer – a potted plant! A philodendron was hooked up to a MIDI and synthesizer with two alligator clipped wires, and it proceeded to play a beautiful, complex piece of very unique music. The philodendron’s song started off sounding a little bit sleepy, then gradually picked up tempo and proceeded to play a song unlike anything I’ve ever heard humans play! It was exquisite, and soothing, and fresh. The notes would rise and sustain on high notes that sounded something like someone playing a rising scale on a xylophone … then it would be quiet.

Next, a melody would begin with lower notes and a chord would hang suspended and sustained as notes rose slowly … bringing to my mind the vision of water flowing down gently from a plant’s leaves into the soil after a rain. I almost felt like I could smell the fresh air of the outdoors in this very large conference room! Halpern explained that some people from Damanhur in Italy had created the technology which allows any plant to “sing,” provided the plant is awake and willing to participate.”

To get an idea of just how amazing music of the plants truly sounds, I encourage you to watch a video filmed in Damanhur, Italy that shows talking, musical plants.

I hope you’ll enjoy watching and sharing my YouTube video summary of Plants are Pets, Too — featuring me and my furry canine companion — and I hope you’ll feel free to leave comments either here on this blog or on my YouTube video page.

Noticing that plants have conscious awareness is something we can benefit from in many ways, not the least of which involves feeling the joy and comfort of having special relationships with them. And all of this helps expand what we imagine possible when we contemplate my favorite meditative question, “How good can it get?!”

A Unified Universe of Entangled Diamonds and Altruistic Rats

Cynthia Sue Larson

“I believe we will continue to find increasingly strong reasons to believe that some of the strange effects observable in the microscopic world exist not only in the exotic realms, but also in more intimate domain of human experience.  I also believe that the implications of all this for understanding psi are sufficiently remote from engrained ways of thinking that the first reaction will be confidence that it’s wrong.  The second will be horror that it might be right. The third will be boredom because it’s obvious.” — Dean Radin

We are fortunate to be alive in this amazing time in history, when scientific discoveries in one field often have parallel findings in another field… such as the fascinating timing of a diamond entanglement study at the same point in time when neurobiologists are citing the significance of empathy and altruism in animals, such as jailbreak rats that spring their pals and share sweets.

At first glance, entangled diamonds and altruistic rats don’t seem to have much in common, yet once we’ve taken a closer look, we can begin to notice how in a universe where everything exists as vibration, some vibrations occur harmonically across space and time in ways that resonance is achieved and information is exchanged.

On the physics front, recent groundbreaking experiments at the Clarendon Laboratory at the University of Oxford in England have successfully demonstrated that two physically separated diamonds vibrated together when only one of them was zapped with an ultrashort laser. This kind of entanglement has been previously witnessed only at the quantum level… which is in a microscopically small realm beyond reach of our ordinary range of sensory perception. What’s so exciting about these experiments is how they move the wild and woolly world of quantum mechanics into our everyday world of objects we can touch, taste, smell, hear and feel.

Quantum entanglement is one of those strange behaviors that physicist Albert Einstein once referred to as “spooky action at a distance,” and like quantum teleportation and quantum tunneling, quantum entanglement is something seldom acknowledged on the macroscopic scale. Scientific successes in observing quantum weirdness with things larger than quantum particles initiates a paradigm shift to better assumptions about our world, such as: the energy of things matters as much as the material; non-local effects can be profound; observers influence experimental results; and some outcomes are best described in terms of probabilities.

Diamonds were selected for this entanglement study for their crystalline nature… yet we see evidence of the biological equivalent of entanglement in neurons. Over the past decade, some neurological researchers have suggested a theory that the presence of mirror neurons might help explain empathy because mirror neurons enable a person to know how someone feels by watching them, allowing that person to literally feel what they are feeling. Psychologists often conduct psychology experiments with rats, which have a special place in my heart, as my daughters had pet rats when they were young and we learned first-hand what wonderful pets they make.

Rats are highly intelligent social creatures that can form strong bonds with rats and people, as my daughters and I learned one day when our lost pet rat came bounding home after four days out in the world on her own. While I was amazed that our pet rat survived four days in the great big world on her own, my daughter explained that she’d never lost confidence in her rat returning, because, “I told her to come back home, and she did.”

The exciting news from recent studies with rats comes from University of Chicago neuroscientists Peggy Mason, Inbal Ben-Ami Bartal, and Jean Decety who conducted an experiment with rats in which rats had an opportunity to free a rat trapped in a plexiglass cage, and a majority of the rats learned how to open the cage and free the other rat. Rats did not free similarly caged toy rats, and when given a dilemma between opening a locked cage containing special chocolate treats and freeing a trapped rat, rats typically chose to free the trapped rat and share the chocolate treats.

The implications of these entangled diamonds and altruistic rat studies are truly profound, as it’s clear that we are now entering a time when we can feel awe and wonder at witnessing “some of the strange effects observable in the microscopic world” that Dr. Dean Radin presciently predicted we’d encounter… which invites all of us to re-envision a more unified universe in which we may be more and better connected to one another than we’ve ever previously conceived possible.

Please watch and share my YouTube video summary of A Unified Universe of Entangled Diamonds and Altruistic Rats.

On a personal level, one of the things I love most about the experimental results with entangled diamonds and altruistic rats is how they drive home the point that no matter how alone or trapped we may feel, chances are there’s someone out there who empathizes with what we’re going through, and truly cares. On a global level, one of the things I love most about being on this threshold of a whole new way of envisioning a more unified world is that humanity is being given a huge opportunity to expand our awareness of who we are and what we are capable of being and doing. And all of this helps expand what we imagine possible when we contemplate my favorite meditative question, “How good can it get?!”
