## SECRET FORCE OF THE UNIVERSE

One of the fundamental laws of quantum physics says that an event in the subatomic world exists in all possible states until the act of observing or measuring it freezes' it, or pins it down, to a single state. This process is technically known as the collapse of the wave function, where 'wave function' means the state of all possibilities. Although nothing exists in a single state independently of an observer, you can describe what the observer sees, but not the observer himself. You include the moment of observation in the mathematics, but not the consciousness doing the observing. There is no equation for an observer ... According to the mathematics, the quantum world is a perfect hermetic world of pure potential, only made real when interrupted by an intruder." Lynne McTaggart, The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe," (103)These findings are so significant because they prove that the classical Newtonian model of physics (now being termed "the old physics") is fundamentally flawed. The old physics described a mechanistic material universe"out there" existing regardless of whether or not there was a conscious being alive to perceive it.

The new physics shows that matter doesn't even exist without consciousness. Without a conscious observer to "pop the quiff,"there is no substance, no "materiality" to that which is - just an unlimited, undifferentiated field of energy. As stated in the excellent quantum physics documentary, What the Bleep Do We Know, "When you are not looking, there are waves of possibility. When you are looking, there are particles of experience."
