Oneness, Entanglement, and Connectedness

CynthiaSeoulPalace2013I’ve just returned from a wonderful tour of South Korea where I traveled with some 400 other Kuk Sool Won martial artists, spending long hours with dozens of people–most of whom I’d not met before.

There is something very special about spending so much time with people who start out strangers and end up friends. By the last days of this trip, I felt I was surrounded by respectful extended family members who were always nearby. I made friends with people from Norway, Scotland, England, Germany, Texas, and many other places… all of sharing respectful connections with one another through our practice of Kuk Sool Won.

We ate breakfast together at our hotels, trained together on the beach near Busan, attended a two-day tournament festival together, and visited places of great natural beauty and historical significance together. We enjoyed informal times together, and dressed up for a celebratory dinner. Regardless where we were or what we were doing, I felt an ever-increasing sense of togetherness far beyond anything I could logically label or identify.

I loved visiting some beautiful natural places including a gorgeous beach near Busan, a beautiful Buddhist temple surrounded by mountains near Daegu, and a tranquil garden with lake at a palace in Seoul. I loved walking through marketplaces in various towns in South Korea, and seeing people I recognized from our traveling group.

I was surprised to find myself missing my hundreds of friends when I returned home to California… feeling an emptiness when walking the streets of my hometown without the familiar sight of dozens of people I was getting to know strolling nearby.

In Korea I can’t escape the concept of being part of a group–a concept which is understood by Koreans, yet rather foreign to most westerners. This idea of group identity and group consciousness is really interesting to me, because it reminds me how all of us have the ability to stay connected to everyone and everything that we really feel a connection with.

This idea means that you can expect to experience synchronicity and being at the right place at the right time when you are connected to and entangled with a group. In quantum physics the concept of entanglement has to do with particles moving in synchrony despite being physically separated, many meters apart.

You can actually experience what it feels like to be entangled with a group that you’re connected to just by experimenting with it. Notice whether it’s not true that against all odds you are there when a friend of yours happens to be calling or stopping by. You just naturally tend to be in the right place at the right time to talk to the right person. This is called synchronicity sometimes, but if you look a little deeper, you’ll notice these synchronicities are actually occurring with people you feel connected to.

While westerners often operate from an assumption that we are unique individuals, functioning autonomously, separated from everything else–in reality we are all part of a greater whole. We can’t really succeed until we all succeed. You can’t really win until we all win. These are my own beliefs, but I invite you to ask yourself, “How good can it get when you feel entangled with and connected to others?”


Here’s the video summary of this blog post that I recorded in Daegu, South Korea:

Welcome to the Quantum Age

CynthiaWhile it’s true that we just left the Industrial Age behind a few short decades ago as we entered the Information Age, the times are again changing, as we are now arriving at the dawn of the Quantum Age.

Such a bold statement demands an explanation, I realize. Like most changes in eras of time throughout human history–from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age to the Iron Age to the Industrial Age and the Information Age–this one too is based on new ideas and technology. There is right now a race to build quantum computers, which is driving forward a staggering number of new discoveries in the realm of quantum physics on a weekly basis. These new Quantum Age computers are to our current classical Information Age computers as typewriters are to laptops… a technological leap forward in exponential orders of magnitude.This race to build the first working quantum computers is rocking our world to its very foundation, as quantum processes are being demonstrated at room temperatures on the macroscopic scale in repeatable laboratory conditions.

ENIACYou can better appreciate the origins of our current Information Age by taking a look at the first classical computers. Our first computers became commonplace in the 1930s and 1940s, with the hefty accomplishments of the ENIAC computer’s memorable debut. This gigantic milestone computer weighed in at thirty metric tons. Although it needed to be rewired in order to be reprogrammed initially and operated without any operating system, the ENIAC captured public attention and helped popularize the idea of computing as essential to everyday business and life. The first computers changed peoples’ lives and way of thinking far beyond what was originally envisioned, making the world better connected and informed than at any previous point in history.

Quantum Age Computing: The Power of the Qubit

Whereas classical computers are based on a principle of recordable, reproducible facts in the form of flat, two dimensional world of zeros and ones, Quantum Age computers are based on the physics of possibility. And what makes Quantum Age computers possible is a brand new idea we’ll become much more familiar with as we move more fully into the Quantum Age–the qubit.

The qubit, or quantum bit, is the simplest building block of quantum information. Qubits are designed to handle simultaneously superimposed possibilities, working together in entangled clusters of computational coherent complexity. A single quantum memory is capable of envisioning, for example, every single possible path home you can take during rush hour–all at once–so a quantum computer can instantaneously select the fastest possible route. Whereas classical computers have difficulty solving practical problems such as these, these real-life problems are tailor-made for quantum computers and natural quantum computational capabilities built into the photosynthesis process in plants.

Another mind-boggling difference between classical computers and Quantum Age computers is that qubits are much more than the sum of their parts. Whereas the bits and bytes of classical computers become just slightly more interesting and complex when more of them come together, truly mind-bending possibilities arise when two or more qubits are working together. Qubits work together in ways unlike anything ever seen in classical computing, beginning with entanglement, so that any single-qubit measurement performed will give a totally random result, whereas any time such a single-qubit measurement is performed on two entangled qubits, the two measurements will give opposite results. If you picture two entangled qubits as entangled coins being randomly flipped some great distance apart, so that whenever one came up Heads, the other would always be Tails, you see how very different the basics of Quantum Computing are from Classical computing.

Feeling the Pulse of Various Parallel Realities

One of the basic aspects of quantum computing is that energy is required to make a jump from one state to another. When quantum particles are observed to make a quantum jump, they can be seen to blink out of and into existence, like bright flashes of light, as they make the jump. There is an “oscillating phase” of vibration associated with each energy level state, so the faster the vibration, the higher the level of energy required to exist in that state. And whenever the energy of any one of the entangled particles in an entangled state increase energy, the entire entangled group of particles beat faster in that potential reality.

dwaveThe Impact of Quantum Computing on Daily Life

The very existence of qubits and entanglement is already having a powerful impact on society, in similar fashion to the way the advent of ever-smaller classical computers and the internet has had on our lives in the past several decades. While most people might not be able to explain the difference between a bit and a byte, or explain the difference between RAM and ROM in a computer, there is now a great reliance upon global communication via a freely accessible internet for communication of news from person to person and group to group.

First proposed in the 1980’s, quantum computing is expected to change everything from the way the stock market functions to every aspect of information security, weather forecasting, and trend analysis. Thanks to quantum superposition of states, quantum qubits contain information in all possible states, and entangled qubits thus have the capability to efficiently compute optimal solutions for some of the most complex, vexing and currently “unsolvable” problems known to man.

The first quantum computers for sale fetched fifteen million dollars, and was purchased by NASA and Google. The size of a large garden shed, the Canadian D-Wave-Two is the first commercially available quantum computer to hit the marketplace, and heralds the start of a brand new age of computing… and civilization.

The Quantum Age Mindset

The Zen of qubit processing logic can be more easily understood from an Eastern fourfold logic view. Rather than adopting a simple Yes/No, Zero/One, True/False dichotomy of classical computing bits, qubits exist in the realm of such possibilities as: True, False, True-and-False, and Not-True/Not-False. Such a lack of certainty in favor of optimization may seem strange at first, but this seemingly fuzzy logic is one of the core foundational aspects of the new Quantum Age.

The Quantum Age invites us to embrace uncertainty, recognize interconnectedness, and raise our level of energy in order to experience a better way of life. Through quantum entanglement, we find a mechanism by which to comprehend intuition. Through quantum teleportation we see how we can sometimes travel farther in less time. Through quantum coherence we better understand synchronicity and coincidence, and through quantum superposition we glean insights into spontaneous remissions from disease that can occur when people are in lucid dream or near death experience (NDE) states of mind.

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?!”
