In classical physics, beginning in the seventeenth century and still embraced by most everyone to this day, things are thought to exist only if they can be perceived in a materialistic sense. It's all about weights, measures, levers, pulleys, speed, distance, timing and so on. This serves us well in the material world. But human-centered physics is naïve in that it is constrained by matter, our four dimensions, and the senses.
In order to function day to day in our material world, with beginnings and ends, and under the constraints of time, we require material bodies, brains, senses, and material things to sustain us. However, the true underlying quantum reality is timeless, connected, and nonmaterial.
This is very difficult for us to comprehend since we tend to think in terms of parts and pieces, beginnings and ends. We also think our four dimensions are all-inclusive. But in the quantum understanding, our dimensions are but an infinitesimal blip on a spectrum of reality that's not only connected but limitless.
Consider light. The visible portion of it is just a minuscule part of an electromagnetic spectrum that apparently extends both ways endlessly. Just because we can only perceive the narrow visible light part of the spectrum, does not deny the existence of other realities that exist in different parts of the spectrum.
For example, insects see a different world than we do since their eyes are tuned to less of the long wave infrared part of the spectrum, and more to the short wave invisible (to us) ultraviolet portion.
Similarly, the sound we can hear occupies only a narrow range in the sound spectrum. The high-frequency sound from a dog whistle does not exist to our ears but does to a dog's. The low-frequency sounds that are part of elephant language don't exist to our ears, but they use it to communicate over miles.
We are only privy to our one reality. Our brain just keeps dialing this four-dimensional material world and then our brain receiver concludes that's all there is.
In our physical world, distance is thought to separate things. However, at the quantum level, all points in space and time are best understood as being the same. Future and history are both accessible.
Time is not the coming-here-gone linear phenomenon we think it to be. It's a perception of beginnings and ends created by our brains to cope with the dimensional world within which we're imprisoned. Einstein wrote of this, ". . . the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion."
A point in time is not gone; it is just elsewhere. Nothing begins and ends; everything just is—including us.
Quantum physics not only proves that touchy-feely matter is an illusion, but also that all things are interconnected and not even subject to time or distance. A butterfly cannot flap its wings in Hong Kong without a breeze occurring in Chicago. Quantum reality is like an infinite ocean where every single molecule is connected to every other one. Events we perceive are like waves—unique but inseparable manifestations of the same underlying ocean.
This interconnectedness is like a holographic film. Holograms are three-dimensional images in mid-air. If the film is broken into fragments and a laser beam directed at any one of the fragments, a complete holographic image will emerge. The image is stored everywhere on the film at the same time.
As early as 1935, physicists Einstein, Polosky and Rosen proposed interconnectedness (nonlocality) which is the idea that at the quantum level things are not detached at all. For example, if two twin photons of light take off from the same point in opposite directions at 186,000 miles per second (the speed of light), what happens to one instantaneously affects the twin thousands of miles away. Though separate, they remain connected. Time and distance are not even relevant to them.
As strange as these ideas may sound, they reflect our true underlying reality. Consider these quotes from noted scientists:
Max Planck—". . . each individual particle in the system, in a certain sense, at any one time, exists simultaneously in every part of the space occupied by the system . . . We see that nothing less is at stake here than the concept of the particle."
Henry Stapp—"Quantum theory indicates that there are no such things as separate parts in reality, but instead only intimately related phenomena so bound up with each other as to be inseparable . . ."
Werner Heisenberg—Reality is divided " . . . not into groups of objects, but into different groups of connections . . . An elementary particle is not an independently existing analyzable entity. It is, in essence, a set of relationships that reach outward to other things."
Alfred North Whitehead—"Nature is a theatre for the interrelations of activities . . . there is no possibility of a detached, self-contained existence."
Albert Einstein—"Physical reality as represented by continuous fields, is not mechanically explicable . . . Physical reality must be described in terms of continuous functions in space. The material point, therefore, can hardly be conceived any more as the basic concept of the theory . . . This change in the conception of reality is the most profound and truthful one that has come to physics since Newton."
Niels Bohr—"At the quantum level there is no objective picture at all."
These conclusions are further supported by the fact that matter at its smallest level disappears and becomes something nonmaterial, like a thought. See: https://www.quora.com/Since-we-are-something-other-than-matter-doesnt-that-mean-we-actually-dont-die/answer/Randy-Wysong
Thus, materialism is an incomplete and naïve understanding of reality.
We are not a mere moving mound of atoms "evolving" from dust and returning to it. As part of the holographic reality, we are fundamentally nonmaterial and timeless. We preexisted material Earth life and continue at its conclusion.
