Quantum Physics: The Realm of Possibilities

I'm sure you've thought to yourself, "Why am I here and what is my purpose?" It's a question that we've all pondered at one point or another in our lives and no one really seems to have the answer. And maybe that's because . . . the possibilities are endless. Simply thinking about your purpose may ultimately help you to not only conceive it, but to manifest it once you have.

There's a theory in the realm of quantum physics that is called "downward causation." One of the pioneers of this scientific theory is Dr. Amit Goswami, Professor of physics at the Institute of Theoretical Sciences at the University of Oregon. Dr. Goswami asked himself, "What converts possibility into actuality?" After pondering and researching for many years, Dr. Goswami concluded that consciousness is the ground of all creation and existence. In other words, our universe is "self-aware" - and consciousness manifests our physical reality. The new paradigm is called "monistic idealism" and with it, the paradoxes of quantum physics, free will, choice, unconsciousness, creativity and spiritual growth are all explainable.

So let's take a look at downward causation, otherwise known as the neurology of "free will." Free will is the given ability to manifest our will, our intention, into being - into "actuality."

Psalm 82: 6 says, "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High."

Humans are made of subatomic particles and in quantum physics, scientists have surprisingly discovered that subatomic particles behave erratically. They bounce and shift without pattern - as if they are awaiting an intention to instruct them to become a manifestation. And sure enough, that's what scientists have discovered. They have discovered that when viewing subatomic particles, it is utterly impossible to pinpoint the location of a sub atomic atom. As it turns out, subatomic particles are able to be in more than one place at one time. They do not exist in our universe alone but rather it seems that they flutter in and out of an infinite number of parallel universes. Subatomic particles await instruction.

Subatomic particles wait for "intention" to be placed upon them before manifesting into actuality.

Scientists have found that, after a few double blind slit tests using sub-atomic particles as subjects, it was discovered they could change from particles to wave form then back again. These particles could leave our dimension then pop right back into it again. Scientists also found that these sub-atomic particles were changing from particles to wave form, depending on the intention of the scientists placed upon it. Even more surprising, they discovered that they could not remove themselves from the equation while testing the particles. The scientists themselves, through observation, influenced the particles. By placing their "intention" upon them, they had a direct effect on the end result.

In other words, it was the "intention" or observation of the scientists that directly influenced the outcome:

The state of possibilities are endless for quantum particles - until we "observe" or "intend" that they are only in one specific state.

Your intention (observation, consciousness) directly chooses the outcome for subatomic particles to manifest into.

Now mind you, folks, we are all made of subatomic particles so this applies to us as human beings. This is what spiritualists have been teaching for years and it also lends credence to the theory of the Law of Attraction. The theory that the universe has a check and balance system, yin and yang or karma, if you like, and that like attracts like.

If you think it, you can be it.

Your intention (thought) has a direct influence over your life because you are in constant control of the subatomic particles and you decide what they manifest into. This falls in line with Dr. Goswami's studies and determination of downward causation.

Downward causation is when the direction of casual "influence" extends from "higher" levels of reality down to "lower" levels of reality. 

The brain controls its atoms and molecules, rather than the atoms and molecules controlling the brain. Downward causation is thus also called "macrocausation", because if it exists, then macroscopic entities have causal powers over the atoms they are made of.  Basically, what this means is that matter is manifested through a higher level - thought and intention.

We create matter. Matter does not create us.

It's a "top-down" theory, not a "bottom-up" one. There is an online version of a book titled, "Downward Causation and the Neurobiology of Free Will." Each chapter summary is free to preview and explore for thought provocation. You can also purchase entire chapters in PDF form if you choose. So you see, your life is what you make it. Your quality of life is what you make it. It is so very important to keep your thoughts clear and your intention pure. Because what you think of, is what you will manifest into being.

 Where you are and what you are experiencing today, is the direct result of your previous thoughts and intentions. Whether you realize it or not.

If you sit around all day long thinking, "Oh my, I have so much debt." Then "debt" is what you are ordering the universe to manifest for you. You are subconsciously ordering your subatomic particles to manifest into debt for you. Your perspective and your subconscious daily thoughts directly influence your life and your existence. Your subconscious thoughts count the most, so learn to consciously control them.

The sooner you realize this and accept it, the better your life can become. So, if you're pondering what your purpose is, keep doing so and you may be able to better clarify it and watch it manifest itself into being.

One of the greatest things that you can do for yourself - is to allow yourself some quiet time to think.

"Downward causation is when the direction of casual "influnce" extends from "higher" levels of reality "down" to lower levels of reality". It's funny to read this here. I had just read something similar in a yoga book earlier. The conecpt was the same, however, the content was of the creation of all things. So do you think that kind of theory upon creation would be absurd? It makes more sense than any other. Hah I don't know. :)

The Mirror of Aphrodite said...

Hi EternalLover,
Thank you for participating in many of the discussions here and adding your two-cents. That's what it's all about :-)

In my opinion, this theory makes perfect sense - the most sense out of all of them. And yes, I believe that downward causation is the root of all creation. Downward causation gives us the ability to manifest our dreams - to use our imaginations to create the material world around us. Now, how cool is that? And to me, this theory doesn't leave the creative spirit (God) out of the grand picture either. If anything, it proves to me that God does, indeed, truly exist. And not only does the creative spirit exist, but we have certainly been blessed with great gifts that we are now only beginning to understand. Ironically, it's now science that is helping us to understand and verify the spiritual teachings of the ages and civilizations gone by.

The creative spirit does live within each and every cell of every living thing on this earth - and the abundance that can be provided through his gift is limitless. That's my opinion anyway :-)

Keep on dreaming, you never know what may materialize . . .

TheEternalLover said...

Thank you for sharing your opinion MirrorofAphrodite. :)

I love your two-cents. Ha my mind is obviously in harmony with this theory you've posted. That's nice. Although I have not experienced this underlying consciousness directly, it could make sense that I am part of it. Or, it is part of me, or I am part of you, or any other person/life. I would think that our souls are not so different. Do we share that same bit of pure consciousness that allows us to be conscious of our Selves? It's a miracle to think about. :)

How about this! Ive been musing for a very long time now on "As above, so below" to explain why it is that I have such a strong conviction for astrology!

Peter said...

I never noticed this little gem on here :-)

“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the Universe” Albert Einstein

What see now is modern physics reinforcing ancient beliefs humans do indeed have a “Quantum Function”. We are all interconnected in the universe. Its surprising how much evidence against the statement above is down to a combination of limitations in western education and western prejudice towards eastern beliefs.

“Humans are made of subatomic particles”

Indeed they have found evidence to support this very fact. What they also found is that we are not indeed part of the “whole” they call the universe as Einstein stated but that we are the “whole”. These particles are us and we are the particles it’s all overlapping fields that we can’t remove ourselves from. It was Einstein that persistently argued that any conscious idea of our separation in any form was just an illusion.

“Subatomic particles wait for "intention" to be placed upon them before manifesting into actuality”

Correct ... I suggest a book called “The Holographic Paradigm By Ken Wilson” and “The Implicate Order By David Bohm”.

From the book by Wilber...

"Our brains mathematically construct 'concrete' reality by interpreting frequencies from another dimension, a realm of meaningful, patterned primary reality that transcends time and space. The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe."

Bohm however in his book stated that all things exist first in an unmanifested state and we manifest our state by the process above.The “Hologram Principle” both of these men advocate states that every part/particle in the universe is a copy of the larger universe. These can be constructed or reconstructed into new “wholes” by manifestation.

I could go on with this but I won’t bore you with it MOA LOL! But another fantastic post here.

The Mirror of Aphrodite said...

Now THIS is the stuff that truly fascinates me, LOL. I'm am steeped in the world of quantum physics and find myself still reveling in the topic.

"Bohm however in his book stated that all things exist first in an unmanifested state and we manifest our state by the process above."

Yes, and what he's referring to here is the "potential" - random potential that "waits" for intention to be placed upon it in order to manifest into the desired intention. Unmanifested state" refers to "potential" here, a random state of infinite possibilities.

When they say "if you think it, you can be it" there's actually some real truth to that ;-)

I've replaced the outdated video in the piece to show the double blind slit test that proved this "random state" of sub-atomic particle possibility exists and that it was discovered that "intention" (conscious observation) actually affected the outcome manifested.

When it comes to the world of quantum physics, order and predictability fly out the window ;-)

Peter said...

LOL! why did you not say you liked this before? ah we could talk for hours over this its a great passion of mine :-)

I could have geeked out commenting on this post LOL!

The Mirror of Aphrodite said...

I can't even begin to tell you how much I've read on this subject. When they finally finished the CERN machine and started firing in it, seeking the "God particle" - I could've thrown a party that day, LOL.

And one of my favorite speakers on the matter is Amit Goswami:


I bought his DVD on that matter and I still pull it out and watch it at least once or twice a year, just to let it all sink in again. You may want to purchase this, Peter:


His father was a spiritual "guru" of sorts in India I believe. So not only is he a physicist, he has an extensive "spiritualist" background and upbringing that makes his insights and theories doubly interesting to me.

I have it along side almost every publication I could get my hands on.I think we are approaching this from the same perspective here :-)

Although I will let you in on something everyone misses because my focus is human performance and miliarry science. This little bit gets overlooked....

From my profile on the article on your site:

I'm a Physicist ;-)

Geat minds think alike eh? ;-)

The Mirror of Aphrodite said...

Good lord, why didn't I catch that, LOL? You know, I stared at that title in your bio and thought to myself, "Hmm, that's interesting" but it never occurred to me that the pieces fit, LOL.

Well, if you'd ever feel inclined, sounds like a great topic for another post from you Peter. I mean, who better to explain that a physicist, right ;-)

Lots of the women here are actually interested in the Law of Attraction and it was always my intention to tie the Law of Attraction into a post that combines the science of quantum physics to back it up and give it weight. To explain that it's not just "hooey" or some crazy spiritualist theory - but that there's actual science now being discovered to back it up.

To back up what spiritualists have been teaching for eons.

And it's funny how like-minded individuals gravitate towards one another. Because another friend of mine has written here previously on the topic of metaphysics. He's a member of the Lily Dale Assembly (an entire spiritualist community in New York - everyone that lives there is a spiritualist or studies metaphysics and there's a waiting list to buy homes there):


And he teaches there and speaks there. He's a Reike healer, spiritualist minister and an intuitive (medium):


He wrote that piece there and his bio is at the bottom of it.

Give weight to the old phrase, "Birds of a feather flock together." ;-)

Now we have a physicist in the mix, LOL. That's awesome, Peter! The combo of spiritual/science. I've always said, in many discussions with that friend Tommy, that I truly believe - and I truly do believe this - that quantum physics is going to be THE SCIENCE that connects spiritualists teachings (religion in a sense) with science.

It's going to be the bridge that connects the two someday ;-)

AnonWoman said...

Yes please, would love to read any new article on it Peter, no pressure! :-)

Peter said...


Did you know in China they produced many experiments over the last ten years into the effects of "Human Energy".

In one example they had different solutions of chemicals in water. They measured the effects of "Human Energy" on the structure of chmical solution by looking to see how the molecules scattered light across a laser spectrum. The results illustrated a direct change in the structure of the chmicals in ALL of the water solutions at molecular level. This even took place up to 1000 kilometers in distance away. They literally did "manifest" a direct change by intense focus.

You're correct it will indeed be a bridge to connect people. Modern physics has changed focus now from being about the "Physical" to being about "Energy Fields". The focus is on closing the gap from our science to eastern beliefs. A lot times we just find out what they told us all that time ago LOL!

I like that post by your friend an interesting oe to think about. I like that little equation he gives at the end :-)

The law of attraction would indeed make an interesting topic to talk over from that perspective.

OMG it would be absolutely AMAZINGGGG if you do this piece! I believe in LOA to an extent but, being scientific/analytical naturally, there's still a skeptic in me that says that it's just your mind "finding" what you've been subconsciously thinking about (eg seeing silver cars everywhere on the road when you just bought a silver car yourself etc - when in fact there hasn't been any more silver cars than the day before).


The Mirror of Aphrodite said...

Well, what you reference there actually ties into the science behind the Law of Attraction - but it ties into the "brain" science of it.

What you reference there with the silver cars is referred to as mind mapping. The brain begins to notice what you're subconsciously thinking about. And once that happens, it begins to build connections in the brain to recognize more of that - to pluck out items that relate to that from all the "noise" of life.

And once the brain is mapped to recognize things that relate to your desires and begins plucking them out of the crowd for you - it creates a path for you. In otherwords, it's the recognition of your desires.

And once the recognition process begins, and the brain begins to "show" you things that relate to your desires - it literally begins to create a path for you to follow. A path that you would've otherwise missed or never recognized or followed.

And a lot of times, it begins to pluck out things that seem to have no relation to your ultimate desires and "shows" them to you. You think, "I already have a silver car. Why am I seeing silver cars everywhere. I don't need another one."

BUT - if you begin to recognize the silver cars and acknowledge them, this tells the brain "yes, I'm on the right path." When the brain receives that green light acknowledgment that it's doing the right thing - it will continue to pick from your subconscious desires and will increase it's efforts to "show" you a path that will lead to that desire.

And it will move from silver cars to another subconscious thought, and then another, and then another, and then another. And each time you acknowledge that recognition, it reinforces the brain to continue to "map" itself in a direction of leading to your ultimate desires.

The image here depicts the concept better than I can explain it here:

Sista'Taurus said...

According to the Kabbalah, all that exists within “Creation” is the “Creator” and the “Creature.” So from the point of view as the “creature,” (us human beings), everything outside of the self is the “creator.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

So,as above,so below,as within,so without.And that's by Hermes Trismegistus and there's a whole study on that called Hermeticism.I think you'll love reading into it MOA.I recommend the Emerald Tablet to begin with.

This stuff is confusing and wayyy outside my knowledge base. I don't get how the LOA idea is supposed to work. Help please.

So, we have the small dumb programmable voluntary portion of our mind commonly referenced as our conscious mind.
Then we have the amazingly large involuntarily controlled subconscious mind.

If the LOA works from voluntary (conscious) thought then it must operate from the conscious mind right? But because we're often aware of what we're thinking the success of LOA should be more apparent shouldn't it? When I look around, I dunno... i see alot of stuff not going as planned and its not like LOA wasn't/isn't a big thing with enough people attempting it.
If LOA works from the subconscious mind then we're kinda screwed not? You know, involuntary SUBconscious and all...

What am I missing? I know this is super-condensed but whats the skinny here?

It seems to me whats beneficial is a personal energetic equilibrium which would necessarily mean attracting the opposite of what we want some/much of the time not?

The Mirror of Aphrodite said...

@Anonymous Male,
Well, where to begin. Most modern science believes that our reality, the matter around us, further creates and produces our reality. Modern science believes that "matter creates matter."

But the study of quantum physics is discovering that is NOT the case. Physicists are discovering the opposite - that our reality is created from our subconscious thoughts. That "consciousness (awareness) produces matter."

(And Peter, if you're reading this, since you're a physicist, feel free to jump in here and correct anything that I may be misinterpreting here in my explanation.)

When you think, you produce a measurable form of energy called a "neuro peptide." And that neuro peptide energy is sent out into the universe as well as to other parts of the human body, namely - your "gut."

Science is now referring to the human gut as the second brain:


(And it is also something that spiritualists have been teaching for eons - psychics, mediums and intuitives listen to their "gut" and pay heed to the brief flashes it gives them. Whereas, modern man no longer relies on "gut" feelings anymore, feeling there's no real use for intuition in modern times, but rather, letting the logical mind slip in 3 seconds after "gut" impressions that rationalize them away.)

Human beings are like radio's, transmitting waves of measurable energy into the atmosphere daily. And via the Law of Attraction (karma), the universe must respond to that energy by sending it right back to us. By "balancing" it. By delivering right back to us that which we are thinking. And that process then creates our immediate reality - our experiences.

The Law of Attraction is a universal law, much like that of the Law of Gravity. It just is, it simply exists, even though you can't see it - it's there. And the Law of Attraction dictates that "like attracts like."

So what quantum physics is discovering is that sub atomic particles, that which we are all made of, behave in a "random" way. And this randomness is a lingering state of "possibility." Meaning, the sub atomic particles wait for an instruction. They do not become matter until an instruction (observation, self-awareness) is received that dictates what they should become.

So in the video here, the test that discovered this, the double blind slit test, discovered that - when subatomic particles are "observed" - meaning when someone consciously focuses on observing them, when someone's "intention" is placed up them - it affects how they behave. The very act of observation (self-awareness) affects the outcome.

In otherwords, the very act of "observation" - the very act of "intention" - acts like an "instruction" to the sub atomic particles. If you observe them, it's almost like they sense you're expectations.

And what that means is, with us being comprised of sub atomic particles - if we place "intention" upon our thoughts, the energy we emit, those thoughts actually have the ability to manifest into reality, a physical experience.

Thoughts can produce and affect your reality. The energy that you emit into the universe via subconscious thoughts can manifest into reality if an "intention" is placed upon them, an "instruction" of sorts. If you do not control them, they still do the same thing - but in a chaotic state. However, if you control them, if you control your thoughts, you can actually almost tell them what to do.

It's the very act of being "conscious" about your thoughts that makes the difference.

Cont . . .

The Mirror of Aphrodite said...

So if you sit around all day thinking, "I have so much debt. What am I going to do about all this debt." The universe hears the keyword "debt" - and via the Law of Attraction, a universal law, it MUST give you back (balance, karma) that which you are asking of it.

It must deliver to you more "debt."

You are acting like a radio transmitter signaling "debt, debt, debt" to the universe. And by universal law, the universe must create more "debt" in your life. It must fulfill your request and close the loop, the circle of fulfillment, by giving you want you're asking for - more "debt."

But if you begin to take control of your thoughts, if you become self-aware and begin to consciously control them and place "intention" behind them - you can affect the outcome, you can affect and somewhat control your experiences in this realm - the 3rd dimension that we live in.

I actually found the entire quantum activist movie online:


That physicist explains it much better than I can here. And the above is only my interpretation of it.

Basically, in a nutshell, he's saying that sub atomic particles exist in a random state of possibility. Every object is not a determined thing, rather they hang in a state of endless "possibility" - for you to chose from.

When you don't chose, sub atomic particles behave like a "wave" - but when you focus on them, when they receive your "intention" - the wave collapses and they become your experience in the 3rd dimension that we live in.

Consciousness converts waves of possibility and turns them into an actual event - manifests them into your reality.

I'm not sure how long the video above that I linked to here will be online as it's currently still being sold at the moment (YouTube may yank it down soon) but if you can set aside an hour to view it, I would do so. You'll gain a much better understanding of it by hearing it explained by a physicist in lamens terms (and from one who also has the ability to tie it into spiritualists teachings).

The science he's referring to there - basically confirms what spiritualists have been teaching for eons . . . if you think it, you can be it. And through this knowledge, you can move towards a path of what spiritualists call "enlightenment". . .the awakening to ultimate truth by which man is freed.

Basically, science is now finding proof of what spiritualists have been teaching for eons. Intuition exists, it's a very real thing - your gut feelings - and the very act of being self aware - affects your reality and manifests into your physical experiences here on earth.

He served as the coordinator of experimental work in the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) PEAR) lab, directed by Robert Jahn in the department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, School of Engineering/Applied Science, Princeton University.

Dr. Nelson is now director of the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), an international, multi-laboratory collaboration (independent from the PEAR program) that maintains a network of random event generators (REGs) around the world that send data continuously over the Internet to a server in Princeton, NJ. The hypothesis being tested is that anomalous results in this data correlate with major global events, suggesting they occur as an effect of global consciousness. Dr. Nelson has examined the output of the REG machines during the Peace Intention Experiment.

I think you will find there the scientific proof of the existence of Law of Attraction that you seek :-)

Today I was talking to a girlfriend of mine about LOA.She said she is a bit skeptic about it when it comes to say,unfortunate situations,such as poverty,disease,troubled governments in third world countries and such.

And as much as I am a believer,that was a blow for me too.I mean,to people living under negative circumstances all the time,you can't tell them to apply LOA in order to change their reality.Their reality is out of their immediate control,they are living subdued to it.

What's your take on that?

Anonymous said...

Ok. Excellent video. Turns out I had a very rudimentary conceptual view of LOA. I didn't recognize LOA as a working concept because I expected less limitation in those applying it. My understanding now of its limitation has to do with cosmic and non-local consciousness. What we as individuals want has to first be in harmony with the greater good so to speak. Guess that makes alot of sense.

The video ties in nicely with your explanation of 'gut feeling' and intuition. I've always been an upward causation kind of guy but couldn't explain those two things as anything more then ethereal. I use my gut feeling and intuition daily in business and speculation but couldn't explain it. Bothersome for someone as rational and logical as I. The downward causation theory is in my favorites for more research now. Thanks. Nice write up BTW.

@Sista' Taurus,
I get what she's saying, yes, some things are out of our control. However, I have to disagree with this "Their reality is out of their immediate control, they are living subdued to it."

We can always overcome sweetie. We are not set in concrete to live our existence on one set path - we do have "free will" and we do have control over small things that can lead to big change. The only time you are subdued to it - is when you accept it and do nothing to change it. Change may not come overnight, but many, many people overcome poverty.

"Small" people, poor people, have done "great" things that have lifted them out of poverty utilizing the Law of Attraction.

One of the best and most successful examples is that of Henry Ford, who was a big proponent to the LOA. He carried his goals handwritten on tiny sheets of paper around with him in his pockets - and yes, Henry Ford was born into poverty.

"Whether you think you can or think you can’t, either way you are right." - Henry Ford

"I am no longer cursed by poverty because I took possession of my own mind, and that mind has yielded me every material thing I want, and much more than I need. But this power of mind is a universal one, available to the humblest person as it is to the greatest." - Henry Ford

Walt Disney is another example. He too was born into poverty.

"If you can dream it, you can do it." - Walt Disney

Another example is Thomas Edison, who failed 10,000 times to create the light bulb. Each time, he faced mockery and the negative verbal assaults of others, but he held true to the LOA.

"If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves." - Thomas Edison

Another is Andrew Carnegie. He taught many people about the Law of Attraction. His most famous student being Napoleon Hill who wrote the best selling novel, Think and Grow Rich, which in turn has taught many others "The Secret."

"The man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of anything else to which he is justly entitled." - Andrew Carnegie

Cont . . .

The Mirror of Aphrodite said...

And it is also believed that the following were also practitioners of LOA:

And many others speculate a modern day example of proper use of LOA is J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series.

Now a self-made billionaire, at the time she was compelled to write the novel, she was on welfare (government benefits) and living in poverty.

Just prior to 1998, her publisher recommended her to "continue to keep her day job" and told her there was a "small opportunity of generating money in children's books."

Yet she held true to her beliefs and her visualization of her future and the success of that children's book. And the end result was that her success flew in the face of all that she had been told:

"You're poor, you can't do this, you're living on government benefits, get a better job and don't worry about children's books" etc.

I don't believe lumping troubled governments and third world countries into the LOA is appropriate. LOA is for the "individual" and it represents "free will" - the ability to "freely will" your individual reality into existence.

I doubt an individual could ever use their "free will" (LOA) to save a third world country or a troubled government, LOL.

But you can freely will yourself out of poverty with thought, personal drive, ambition, a great imagination that generates an innovative idea and determination, much like the above examples have done. You can find a niche that can change your situation for you - much like Henry Ford found automobiles, J.K. Rowling found children's books and Thomas Edison found the light bulb.

I'm not here to sell anyone on LOA. I believe it exists, it represents "free will" and it's a universal law, much like that of gravity. But others don't have to believe, they too have "free will" and can freely use their will not to believe.

Those who are skeptic will never be able to take advantage of it. Much like religion, it requires faith. You can't see God - yet many believe he exists. You can't see gravity - yet here we are, not falling off the earth. And you can't see the LOA, yet many have made successful use of it and knew it existed long before it made a modern day splash in "The Secret."

It can be likened to the wisdom of the ancients. But it requires faith. And those that need proof of it's existence are never going to fully receive it. Much like those that require proof of God will most likely never fully receive it.

However, all of the great minds of the past and all of the brilliant minds currently studying it (as in the scientists behind the Intention Experiment):


To me, are proof that there are things in this universe that we, simply a monkey with a brain, will never fully grasp. And in our ignorance and arrogance, tend to dismiss without proof.

"What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.” – Buddha

It requires faith ;-)

Awww*applause* brilliantly explained,finally!

"I don't believe lumping troubled governments and third world countries into the LOA is appropriate. LOA is for the "individual" and it represents "free will" - the ability to "freely will" your individual reality into existence.

I doubt an individual could ever use their "free will" (LOA) to save a third world country or a troubled government, LOL."

LOA is indeed for the individual,now I fully grasp.There are countless of inspirational examples,all individual and unique and great-keyword being 'individual'.

I see it like this now,so I,having free will to manipulate my reality,can 'will' something into being!I can will my thoughts into action and place an INTENTION on something I love/want(goal/dream)+work on it,for 'that' to manifest into being!In other words,I can create and re-create my life everyday!By filtering out the negative and applying intention(action) on the things I want,I can actually 'make smth happen'??

Am I GETTING it now?This quote resonates with me now :"We can manipulate the very fabric of life just by thinking about it".

And P.S.

I did not know how to fully back up my argument against her when she brought up the whole 'poor mother with AIDS in Africa/starving children' vs LOA but I did say this though,that I feel that since she is a skeptic about it,it will not work for her.Something can only really manifest if you truly believe in it.Like you said,much like God,it just requires faith.You can't have half beliefs,half dreams,half hopes but expect WHOLE results of it.

Now that I think about it,skeptics must be a very lonely and sad people.All that in between ish,LOL,kind of like being permanently stuck in limbo

The Mirror of Aphrodite said...

@Sista' Taurus,
Yep, you got it. I would strongly suggest that you watch the video I linked to in my response to "anonymous male" here. That will give you a much better view and explanation of the concept. Set aside an hour for yourself with a cup of coffee and enjoy it.

You'll be glad you did ;-)

That list of experts you provide is a brilliant one and they've all produced some fantastic data. As you say there are some very brilliant minds indeed on that list.

We are manifesting/attracting our environmental conditions around us all the time, and this happening without any intention at all. This something fundamental to the makeup of the DNA we all carry. DNA does possess an intention to manifest apart from what we intend on a conscious level. To further illustrate that as you’re sitting reading this your own DNA is manifesting extremely small “Einstein-Rosen Bridges” or wormholes around you. An effect ancient mystics have long since held as core fact essential to human super-natural ability, yet because we have to “know better” in western society we don’t recognise it as anything significant.

In fact there was famous a Scientist from Stanford University who provided extremely vital reseaerch in this area. However western prejudice towards the involvement of eastern mysticism in science at the time meant there were few independent sources of funding for his research. He produced some of the most important research there is, yet western minds failed at the time to wake up to it. He was encouraged into early retirement while being directed to finish all pending projects as quickly as possible.

That was his reward for providing the world with what is for all purposes- the equation for the Law of Attraction. One of the ways he did this was proving that "intention" is actually an energy density capable of being trapped and cultivated. That this density can be carried, transported and used to attract/manifest change without us even having to be there having any direct influence at all. By direct influence I mean we didn't even need to be located in the same country. He collected hard data repeatedly illustrating attraction/manifestation from over 2000 miles away from our object of intention.

Intention Equation:

QM(t)=Qe+ eff(t)Qm

Qe = Space in an uncoupled state (Potential) or energy density in the vacuum
QM =is information or target of our intentions

Qe is the energy density or potential that we transmit our intent through. When we have intention the aspect that changes is QM or the “Physical Matter”. There is very detailed evidence supporting that fact that we can indeed make these intentions on matter negative or positive at will, thus raising or lowering the value of QM.

It’s impossible to comprehend just how much human understanding has been slowed by western mentality and inappropriate conditioning. Considering that the Russians had already proven most of this from the 50’s up to the 70’s it should be called a re-discovery. I bet modern day mystics who possessed this knowledge for generations are all saying a big “I told you so”.

Peter that is awesome! Thank you so very much for sharing that here. Now....I just need to take a moment to absorb it, LOL.

Fascinating ;-)

Thank you Peter!I'm looking at this equation like a monkey though and I literally feel my brain stretching,trying to understand that Lol.

Moa,I wanted to share with you that I went and re-watched The Secret and now going to watch the Quantum Activist.

I noted down a little plan for me to take this all in and manifest it in my daily life.I went on and copied the guy in the Secret with the little gratitude rock,walking around.I used to collect all kinds of little rocks,crystals so I picked one out and exercise remembering to be grateful and happy about all the things in my life.As a result,I am happier,and I feel it.I am more aware of being an energy field than ever before!

I also made it my religion to voice out affirmations before I go to bed and when I wake up.The results,I wake up elated and with a sense of purpose.Whatever it is(I DONT KNOW),it feels good and I want more of it.

''I WANT MORE''-that is one line I will be painting on my living room wall(or use block letters,who knows).I am having fun with this!

It's strange because I saw The Secret in 2006,was fascinated by it but did nothing about it.That was a choice in itself,I realise now.

I absolutely love the idea that The universe can grant us ANYTHING(like a sales catalogue) and our wish is its command(the positive and negative altogether).So I see now that my job is to want more of the positive and be in alignment with that,mind and heart(WHATEVER we do not choose or act upon,is a choice in itself too;remaining passive is a choice and speaks loudly too!)

I wasn't aware of that before.That whatever I do not choose,is a choice in itself.That whatever I do not speak,is a choice in itself.I am literally starting feel like a frequency wave now and I am so aware of it and hope that I keep at it until it becomes habitual for me.This can be life-changing.IT IS.

Another thing I plan to do is literally set out little goals for me monthly and focus on acquiring/achieving them.I do not know HOW,but then again the HOW is domain of the universe.I understand that now and will not worry.

I also now see how the more one grasps the power of LOA,it can bring about fear,because it could literally re-design your life and we people are so conditional at this point that THAT could freak us out!But I want it badly!

This is so exciting!How and when did you start exercising LOA in your life and could you give some examples of success you've had with it?

Lots of love!

Sista'Taurus said...

Oh and another little thing Mirror,out of curiosity,when is your bday? :)

The Mirror of Aphrodite said...

@Sista' Taurus,
I'm not going to publish my exact birthdate online, however, I'm April of 1971. As far as example of LOA success, without giving too much detail, I believe I successfully enacted it twice - 2 major events.

The first of which involves a long story. But long story short, I used to spend two weeks of every summer in a state forest about 100 miles from my home. One week with my parents, one with my girlfriends family (shed join me with mine as well.)

Some 20 years later, we had lost touch with one another. I'd go up there and think of her and her family while enjoying my time there as an adult, something which I continued to do. Fast forward years later, I used to walk around telling people I'd own property in that state forest up there. Not something easy to do as it's a small state forest and private land within it isn't easy to come by.

I did this for years. I'd picture myself up there, I'd reminisce about the happy times I was grateful for there and I'd daydream about owning property there and then I'd almost pretend it already happened by telling people it's going to happen.

Well, years later and quite unexpectedly...I received the funds to purchase property, to make a big purchase or investment of some sort. Rather than bank it, I wanted to invest in property, real estate. So I started looking up there near the forest.

Nothing was panning out. None were even close to the forest and all were run down. So one day, I lament to the realtor concerning my unhappiness about the properties. He says, "We'll, I have one more that's been on the market for 9 months without interest."

And he leads me right into the heart of this forest...literally a two minute drive up the hill from the state park I spent so much time in as a child...to a pristine 3 acres smack dab in the middle of this virgin hemlock forest.

Needless to say, an offer was made that day....and I'm now the proud owner of this tiny sacred spot...and have been so for the past 9 years :-)

Even more interestingly, I'm actually in the park one afternoon using their shower house facilities. One year after purchasing my property nearby. I come out of the shower stall and I see a young girl that is the spitting image of my girlfriend, who I used to spend lots of time with there.


The Mirror of Aphrodite said...

I notice and I'm somewhat amazed at the likeness. I go about my business and come out of the women's shower house where a group of fiends I grew up with we're waiting...we've all spent many weekends creating memories up there :-)

I come out and one of my males friends says, "you're not going to believe who we found." He steps aside....and there's my old girlfriend...who now lives some 2000 miles away...standing right there...with her young daughter at her side ;-)

Turns out...her brother purchased 7 acres right at the end of the road my 3 acres is on.

The universe lead us all right back to where e wanted to be...and right back to each other...in the same place...some 25 years later ;-)

Sista'Taurus said...


That's so inspiring.I did read that story of yours on one of the posts some time ago.

It's just like that guy in the Secret who bought his dream house and renovated it,without even realising that it had been 'his vision board dream house'.

Life is amazing,because it happens this very moment,in and through all of us.

Live accordingly :)

Does this explain why there are more UFO nowadays because humans keep on imagination their existence?
