There is a strange and mysterious world that surrounds us, a world largely hidden from our senses. The quest to explain the true nature of reality is one of the great scientific detective stories.
Clues have been pieced together from deep within the atom, from the event horizon of black holes, and from the far reaches of the cosmos. It may be that that we are part of a cosmic hologram, projected from the edge of the universe. Or that we exist in an infinity of parallel worlds. Your reality may never look quite the same again.


"The key in quantum mechanics is the connection between thoughts and their effect on matter, energy and reality" No Jeremiah, no. That is woo of the highest order. You should try to learn more before making ridiculous comment like that.

Good comment, Jeremiah. The current interpretations of the infamous Double-Slit Experiment may all be missing the point - and making things out to be woo woo that are actually a great deal more reasonable. I think the scientist in The Primer Fields has nailed it - check it out on YouTube - /watch?v=9EPlyiW-xGI Turns out what was not being accounted for was the field around the photons or particles. Taken into consideration, that really makes simple work of what's happening in the particle-wave thing. Now, I'm no scientist this time around, so do check it out for yourself :)

It's a nice piece, but misses an important key, even though discussed several times.The key in quantum mechanics is the connection between thoughts and their effect on matter, energy and reality It was touched on in the very wonderful presentation of the double slit experiment - where observation changed the outcome.However the program places most emphasis on "observations" occurring in particle accelerators where the topic of observer interaction is never discussed. The nice story of the conversation between Einstein and Bohr about the existence of the moon also touched on this realm of observer interaction (was it really there if no one looked? Prove that it is not there when no one looks). The most important empirical evidence of the program was the double slit experiment: merely by "looking" a wave becomes a particle. How is that possible. Venture down that path Horizon and discover what awaits.Jeremiah Josey
