A Glitch in the Matrix

cynthia2013apr26Neo: Whoa, déjà vu.
Trinity: What did you just say?
Neo: Nothing, I just had a little déjà vu.
Trinity: What did you see?
Cypher: What happened?
Neo: A black cat went past us, and then another that looked just like it.
Trinity: How much like it, was it the same cat?
Neo: Might have been, I’m not sure.
Morpheus: Switch, Apoc.
Neo: What is it?
Trinity: Déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix. It happens when they change something.
–dialogue from the movie, The Matrix

MatrixCatThe phrase “a glitch in the Matrix” originated in the movie, The Matrix, starring Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, in which the characters Neo and Trinity discussed what Neo called a “déjà vu” when he saw a black cat walk past in an adjacent hallway… and then a short time later, saw another cat walk past in exactly the same way. In the movie The Matrix, the main characters discover that physical reality is not nearly so solid as most people assume–and that there is an underlying Matrix (that appears to operate much like computer code running in a gigantic simulation) responsible for creating everything around us.

Have you had a Déjà Vu experience? 

While the term déjà vu literally translates from the French to “already seen,” this kind of experience of witnessing a repeating sequence of events is not the type of déjà vu that people typically experience. Most déjà vu experiences do not happen hot on each other’s heels, but instead more typically occur some time after one first has an impression of a certain sequence of unfolding events. Such an impression might come from having previously dreamt about what is now unfolding… or possibly from an earlier daydream or other mental impression.

Groundhog Day Effect

Rapid-fire repeating sequences of events like the black cat “glitch in the Matrix” in which an event has no sooner unfolded to some degree than it unfolds all over again are referenced in Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World as “the Groundhog Day Effect,” with a nod to another wonderful reality shifting film, Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, in which the main character wakes up each morning to find… he’s living the exact same day over and over again.

I’ve witnessed two of these repeating-events types of reality shifts; once at a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico where a woman walked through the hotel lobby exactly the same way twice in a row, and on another occasion at a friend’s house when someone asked for and received a business card… and then asked the same woman for a business card again. What I found so remarkable about these repeating events is that the dress, mannerisms, facial appearances, mood, and all other details occurred exactly the same way twice in a row… as if a scene in a movie was selected to play all over again.

The interesting observation in The Matrix that such repeating sequences of events indicate that there’s been a glitch in the Matrix due to a change having just been made, leads us to wonder why we’d ever notice reality behaving in such a discontinuous manner.  One possible explanation could be that if we are living in a multiverse as physicist Hugh Everett III proposes in his Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum physics, we might occasionally expect to see such glitches when moving from one universe of possibility to another. If the universe moves in accordance with physicist John Cramer’s Transactional Interpretation of quantum physics, each path forward in reality is made based on a kind of “handshake” between a point in future spacetime and one the past, and possibly sometimes we’d see evidence of a couple of different reality selections, one after another.

Many Types of “Glitches in the Matrix”

There are many types of reality shifts in addition to repeating sequences of events–involving situations where things appear, disappear, transport and transform… and changes in the way we experience time. Such reality shifts are often recognized to be incidents of mind-matter interaction (MMI), and are sometimes considered to be quantum jumps–and the explanation for why they are occurring can be found when viewing them as all being examples of quantum behavior on the macroscopic scale. While such things as quantum entanglement, superposition of states, quantum teleportation, and quantum “particles” blipping into and out of physical material form are all perfectly normal at the quantum level of microscopic reality… we also witness many of these same characteristics on the macroscopic scale.

Quantum Teleportation Reality Shifts

Cynthia Sue Larson

I feel tremendously fortunate to be alive during a pivotal time in history in which many quantum behaviors long presumed to only be observable at the quantum level are being witnessed on a human-viewable scale.

A huge breakthrough occurred in November 2012, when a team of scientists led by Xiao-Hui Bao at the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei reported the first ever successful teleportation between two  macroscopic objects–bundles of rubidium atoms–across a distance of almost 150 meters, using entangled photons to transmit information that  remained stable for just 100 microseconds.

In the field of quantum biology, some scientists including Dr. Luca Turin of the Fleming Institute in Greece suspect that many of the processes we’ve known about for years may have at their very heart a quantum basis. As a matter of fact, one leading possible example of quantum teleportation in the field of biology is as close as the nose on your face! According to the quantum tunneling explanation, smell molecules wiggle and vibrate in such a way that electrons in the olfactory receptors in our noses disappear on one side of a smell molecule and reappear on the other. This idea of quantum smelling has been gaining ground recently, since it explains why molecules that include sulphur and hydrogen atoms bonded together can take a wide variety of shapes, yet no matter which way these molecules combine, our nose scent receptors invariably register that familiar rotten egg smell every time. Dr. Turin explains, “If you look from the standpoint of an alternative theory–that what determines the smell of a molecule is the vibrations–the sulphur-hydrogen mystery becomes absolutely clear.” When energy of just the right frequency causes collections of atoms to vibrate, these spring-like collections of atoms vibrate every time an electron in a particular “smelly” molecule jumps or tunnels across the receptor, depositing a quantum of energy as it does so into one of the molecule’s bonds, which sets the springy group of atoms in that molecule vibrating. 

While progress in quantum physics and quantum biology laboratories moves steadily forward, it seems we may still have a wait before we see anything like William Shatner playing Captain Kirk on Star Trek, saying this famous line into his communicator, “Kirk to Enterprise. Beam us up, Scotty.”

Historical Accounts of Teleportation

On October 24, 1593, Gil Pérez was on duty working as a palace guard in Manilla in the Philippines the day after he’d received word that Chinese pirates had killed Governor Gomez Perez Dasmarinas. Gil Pérez closed his eyes and leaned against a wall to rest, and when he opened his eyes he found himself in Mexico City’s Plaza Mayor, over 9,000 miles away, wearing the uniform of the guards of the Del Gobernador Palace and with absolutely no idea how he came to be there. When questioned, Pérez explained he had just been in Manilla earlier that same day, and he shared the news of the Governor’s death, which was confirmed in Mexico a couple of months later when a ship arrived from the Philippines.

In the year 1904, Signor Mauro Pansini, an Italian building contractor, witnessed his two sons vanishing from their home and being reported as having suddenly appeared many miles away on numerous occasions. Father Vennetti at the Capuchin Convent, at Malfatti, thirty miles away telephoned Signor Pansini one morning to inform him that ten year old Alfredo and eight year old Paolo. Pansini wondered how his sons could have traveled over thirty miles in less than half an hour as he arrived at the Convent, to find them waiting in the reception hall. According to monks at the Convent, the boys arrived mysteriously, in a deep hypnotic state. Signor Pansini took his boys home to their room where he asked them to remain for the rest of the day. A few minutes after seeing them to bed, he decided to check on them and was astonished to find they had vanished out of a closed room! At that same moment, 15 miles away, Signor Pansini’s brother heard a knock on his door, and found his dazed nephews wondering where they were.

Teleportation Reality Shifts

Those of us who’ve experienced reality shifts involving keys, wallets, socks and other objects disappearing from one location and appearing in another have witnessed teleportation in macroscopic objects outside of the laboratory, outside of controlled experimental protocol and in the wilds of everyday life experience. But what does it feel like to literally be teleported somewhere else?

On September 30, 2007, I was working indoors at a full-day holistic expo in Concord, gazing out one of the windows at the sunny day, and daydreaming I was actually out enjoying that beautiful sunny day. A short while later, I received an email from my friend, Katrina, who told me that she had seen me walking down Solano Avenue that day. She was excited to tell me about this, because she knew I was scheduled to be attending a full-day holistic expo out of town that day, and she was therefore quite surprised to see me enjoying a stroll down the street. Strolling down that street is exactly what I was daydreaming about at that point in time, as I was sitting indoors many miles away!

Living in Parallel Quantum Worlds

Cynthia Sue Larson

Cynthia Sue Larson

While reading an article in Scientific American recently, Living in a Quantum World, I felt heartened to see the article’s subtitle, “Quantum mechanics is not just about teeny particles, it applies to things of all sizes: birds, plants, maybe even people.” 

As noted a few months ago in A Unified Universe of Entangled Diamonds and Altruistic Rats, we are truly living in wonderful times as we see mainstream scientific articles acknowledging that quantum mechanics applies to everything in the universe–even ourselves. What this means for our expanding world view is that we can expect to see signs of such things as quantum entanglement, quantum teleportation, and quantum tunneling around us in everyday life–with no need for electron microscopes.

The Scientific American article  Living in a Quantum World states, “In a quantum world, a particle does not just have to take one path at a time; it can take all of them simultaneously.”  One implication of this idea of quantum behavior showing up on the macro scale includes the notion that we can expect to see occasional signs that the world we see around us and so often take for granted is not the only one. These signs can clue is in to the possibility that we are surrounded by an infinite number of parallel universes that, on some level, we are experiencing in their totality.  

The science behind parallel quantum universes

According to physicist Hugh Everett III’s many worlds theory, there are an infinite number of parallel worlds that exist alongside this one. The significance of this theory is that it allows for quantum particles to behave as we’ve observed them and know them to behave, which is probabilistically.

Experiments mentioned in the Scientific American, Living in a Quantum World, indicate that many macro-scale entities such as birds, plants, and salt crystals exhibit signs of being entangled with one another. Such entanglement is a quantum behavioral characteristic which was previously relegated to the realm of the very, very small–yet now entanglement appears to be a quality of quantum behavior we can now claim also for ourselves.

What is it like to visit parallel worlds?

Any time we see a shift in reality in which something appears, disappears, transforms, or transports, presents an excellent time to consider the possibility that we may have just walked between parallel worlds. There are two marvelous books I recommend reading if you’d really like to know how it feels to visit parallel worlds: Traveling to Parallel Universes, and Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World.

Traveling to Parallel Universes

Traveling to Parallel Universes

I was thrilled this past month to read a book of first-hand accounts of travels to parallel universes by author Trish LeSage. In Trish’s book, Traveling to Parallel Universes, Trish describes physical changes she often observes days or weeks prior to switching between universes, such as changes in her body temperature, and observing sights, sounds and sensations of other universes. Trish also writes about how she knows when she has arrived in parallel universes, as she observes differences in the way things manifest, and sees changes in people and animals in each parallel world. I especially love the matter-of-fact way Trish describes her parallel world journeys, along with her authentic emotional reactions when encountering such a variety of parallel universes. In one of the more interesting accounts, Trish describes a universe in which people can easily manifest whatever they contemplate relatively quickly and easily, yet due to lack of character-building through hardships, people are not very friendly, genuine, nor heart-centered.

Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World

Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World

In my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, I write, “Living with the waking dream experience of reality shifting around me feels a lot like walking with my feet in two (or more) worlds.”

“… to all outward appearances, my life seems the same as usual. I still do all the mundane things I need to do for survival, so much of the time I am living a life of habitual response. The biggest change in me is mostly one of attitude and mindset, as my sense of what’s real has changed. My mind seeks a stable place to consider solid or real, and that sense of reality is no longer based simply on what I see in front of me or what seems to be solid. My sense of self is not limited to being confined to my body, since I so often experience feelings, sensations, and realities that don’t happen where my body is.”

“By welcoming a waking dream state of consciousness, I allow for the unexpected to occur. Even ordinary things like cooking dinner have a different feeling for me. Sometimes I’ve opened my refrigerator to get something, shut the door, opened it again a few minutes later, and found a jar had vanished and reappeared in that short space of time. I savor these sensuous experiences of feeling awake in a dream, because I am aware of my wishes, desires and feelings shaping reality all around me. I often find my passing thoughts answered by the universe, as I engage in a continuous dialogue with all that is. I feel this communication best when I also feel how loved I am and how everything around me is here for my benefit and appreciation, surrendering myself as fully as possible to knowing I am love.”

I hope you’ll enjoy watching and sharing my YouTube video summary of Living in Parallel Worlds–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!

When Houses and Horses Disappear

Cynthia Sue Larson

Cynthia Sue Larson

Over the years I’ve heard some amazing firsthand accounts from people who have had astonishing experiences involving houses vanishing. One might think it would be hard to misplace something as big as a house, yet remarkably, many people have witnessed houses vanishing, sometimes never to be seen again, and sometimes reappearing later on.

This last month I was intrigued to hear from a woman named Bekki in Norfolk in the United Kingdom about a house and horse that vanished… and then reappeared. She wrote:

Hi. My name is Bekki, I live in the UK and I hope you can help me (and vice-versa). It’s hard to explain what happened to myself and my two sons about 18 months ago. It’ll be a bit long I fear! We are all very into horses. When we drive home, we go the way that takes us past lots. On this day, our favourite two ponies weren’t in their usual field. I said ‘Maybe they are out on a ride?’ When we came to our normal turn-off, my youngest pointed straight ahead and said ‘this way’. So, despite NEVER having been up this road before , I said okay… A few hundred yards on, we saw a tell-tale lump of horse poop. Around the next bend, lo and behold, were the two ponies being ridden! Pleased to see them, my boys said ‘let’s go home now’. So I carried on driving, intending to find a spot to turn around. This is where it gets weird.

1) A few hundred yards on, we drove past, and briefly stopped to look at, a ‘heavy horse’ in a field, remember this is a road I have NEVER been down before (despite living less than 3 miles away). A distinctive new-build house was adjoining the field. As we were blocking the road, I drove on, saying ‘We’ll pop back another day to look at the horse’. Excited to find another gorgeous horse to visit! On reaching the end of the road, a road junction, I said to my eldest ‘Ah, I know where we are now’. I hate driving on the road it joined to having had an accident with a deer down there so I turned the car round and drove back, intending to familiarise myself with the road with the horse.

2) On the drive back, we missed the horse property. Thinking it must be because the road looked different in the opposite direction, I turned around and drove back the original way – STILL no horse, no house, yet everything else the same! I drove up, then down, another FOUR times before we gave up. Completely unable to explain the happening, we went home (very freaked out).

3) Here is the odd bit. Six months or so ago, I was driving home, alone, from the local town when I drove up behind a lady riding a heavy horse. The first thing I thought was – ‘that is similar to the horse in the ‘missing’ field. Maybe if I follow them, I’ll locate that darn missing house!’ So I turned down the road the horse and rider did, hoping it would lead me to the house, field and horse we’d not been able to locate since!

Now, this is a road I know very well, having worked at a fruit farm down there and having a friend live there. I kept back about 500 yards so not to spook the horse. Suddenly the lady signaled she was turning right and went into a driveway. As I drove past, I couldn’t see her – but my blood went cold! SAME house, SAME field and shelters, even SELLING bags of horse muck outside… When son arrived home, I just said ‘we’ll go for a drive’ didn’t mention horse, house or whatever. Anyway, as we drove up to the house, I sneaked a look in my rear-view mirror. His face was a mask of confusion. He started “Mum, this is the exact same house and field that…” we passed a year ago? It is! Except–I know VERY well the road the house is on. Had never seen it till that day (its new-ish build) BUT HOW ON EARTH did we SEE IT ALL, on a DIFFERENT ROAD, a YEAR EARLIER?! Three of us?!

Just for your reference, the two roads are approximately a mile and half apart, as the crow flies, and there are NO CONNECTING ROADS.

What happened to us that day? Do you have any idea? I’ve looked at time slips, but the stories I’ve read don’t quite fit?

One of the things we can all learn from reality shift experiences is that they are a regularly occurring, perfectly normal part of life, and we can expect to witness shifts in reality now and again. We can expect reality shifts to happen since we’d expect the same sorts of things we see on the quantum scale such as quantum entanglement, quantum teleportation, and quantum tunneling to occasionally manifest on the “macro” scale, and indeed they do! Another aspect from quantum physics is the observer effect, which means reality shifts when we’re watching–and yes, we can notice that happening as well.

I wrote in response to Bekki:

Thank you so very much for writing to me and sharing your amazing experience with the mysterious newly built house and heavyset horse that appeared in one location, vanished, and a year later reappeared on a completely different street. This definitely sounds like a reality shift to me, of the sort I’ve encountered in slightly different, yet fairly similar ways.

There are many stories shared on the realityshifters.com web site about buildings, doors, signs, and occasionally entire cities appearing and disappearing, as well as relocating … which seems on the face of it to be something so very strange and unexpected. I know what a relief it is to experience something like this with witnesses present, so you can reassure yourself that you didn’t imagine or dream the whole thing, but something quite unusual truly occurred.

Here’s an excerpt from my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, in which I share a story about going for a walk with a couple of dear friends at the Berkeley marina, while talking about reality shifts, and asking if they’d ever noticed such things:

Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World

I met with two friends, Jan and Cliff, for brunch at a restaurant in the Berkeley Marina one seemingly normal day. We continued our conversation with a leisurely stroll around the marina, as we often enjoyed doing when we got together. I told my friends about some reality shifts I’d seen, and how much I wished they could see one, too … when one occurred right on the spot! We were walking together towards the pier, when my friend, Cliff, asked us, “Do either of you recall ever seeing that statue here before?” as he pointed at a giant sculpture of a sundial. Jan replied, “No … I don’t.” I felt tremendously excited, because I’d seen that sculpture there, but never when I was there with these two friends! The sundial seemed to rise up proudly towards the sun to greet us as we walked in awed silence to get a better look.

We walked around the ten foot tall concrete sculpture as children sat and climbed around on it. This installation is in a central location people notice, right in the middle of a square at the foot of the Berkeley pier. Amazingly, the sundial sculpture’s absence had previously allowed us to clearly see another giant sculpture situated up on a hill above the sundial when we were on the pier and walking back towards the shore … but now that the sundialwas there, we noticed we couldn’t see the other sculpture as well because it was partially obscured by the sundial. The other sculpture is a larger-than-life size Asian archer on horseback with fully drawn bow, aiming his arrow out over the bay—shooting over the sundial’s spot.

I told my friends the sundial sculpture had always been here when I had come here without them, but never when we were here together … until now. The sundial is chipped and worn, made out of concrete, and bears the following inscription: 

“The peoples of the bountiful Pacific Ocean are brought together by the sweep of time. This sundial honors the citizens of Sakai Japan, the sister city of Berkeley. United in warm friendship and goodwill, the peoples of Sakai and Berkeley strengthen mutual understanding and respect through the exchange of visitors and cultural programs. This sundial is dedicated to the continuing friendship and growing association between Sakai and Berkeley. 1970” 

I am deeply impressed that something as large and majestic as this sundial vanished and reappeared, grasping the magnitude of what else must be possible if such large things can so easily be transformed or transported in time and space. The sundial itself is a symbol that reminds me how love transcends space and time to unite all of us across oceans that physically separate us from one another. I feel great reverence for this universe that allows us to glimpse occasional insights as to how it materializes around us.

Thinking about houses and horses disappearing and reappearing gives us an opportunity to recognize the possibility that right now, at this very moment, we are waking up inside a dream, witnessing how fluid reality can be. And all of this helps expand what we imagine possible when we contemplate my favorite meditative question, “How good can it get?!”
