You Are In Two Places at Once

You Are In Two Places at Once

Because we are both physical and quantum, human beings live multidimensional lives. At this moment you are in two places at once. One is the visible, sensual world, where your body is subject to all the forces of nature “out there.” The wind chaps your skin and the sun burns it; you will freeze to death in winter without shelter; and the assault of germs and viruses makes your cells sick.

But you also occupy the quantum world, where all these things change. If you get into the bathtub, your consciousness doesn’t get wet. The limitations of physical life count for much less in the quantum world, and often for nothing. The cold of winter doesn’t freeze your memories; the heat of a July night doesn’t make you sweat in your dreams.

Put together all the quantum events in your cells and the sum total is your quantum mechanical body, which operates according to its own unseen physiology. Your quantum mechanical body is awareness in motion and is part of the eternal field of awareness that exists at the source of creation.

The intelligence inside us radiates like light, crossing the border between the quantum world and the physical world, unifying the two in a constant subatomic dialogue. Your physical body and your quantum mechanical body can both be called home – they are like parallel universes that you travel between without even thinking about it.

Physical Body: A frozen anatomical sculpture – “I” sees itself as made of cells, tissues, and organs; confined in time and space; driven by biochemical processes (eating, breathing, digestion, etc.)

Quantum Mechanical Body: A river of intelligence constantly renewing itself – “I” sees itself as made of invisible impulses of intelligence; unbounded in time and space; driven by thoughts, feelings, wishes, memories, etc.

Adapted from Ageless Body, Timeless Mind, by Deepak Chopra (Three Rivers Press, 1998).

To the other posts, you're only as young or old as you feel. For example, if your goal is to live till 100 and you are 50 years old, you've only lived half of your life, therefore, you are still considered "young". Something to think about.....

continued.... Basically, what was discovered is that anything that disappears into a black hole, is not - contrary to former belief - gone forever, nope - the information of 'whatever' disappeared into that black hole is added to a sort of two-dimensional film that stretches over this black hole......go figure!! Food for thought ...if you ask me! It means that NOTHING actually disappears......forever. Energy IS.....always as it is - it cannot be lost...not even into a black hole!!

So even while your 'lost item in the black hole is physically in that black hole' the information of that item is left in a holographic film! I sat there with this huge grin on my face listening to these me I'm no wizz - but I sure got a kick out of this idea!
My skeptic fellow readers - listening to this physicist you've got to admit it sounds a lot like - you can indeed be at two places at once! Have a wonderful weekend......Namaste to All!

Goodmorning Deepak, it's been a while - today, spurred on by a comment left on my 'wall' I turn back to your posts to say add a comment! Sorry, Dot I've been madly busy with so many things....seems like I had to be in twenty places all at once:-)) So this post seems to be quite fitting to jump back into the Soular Energy game!
Deepak's statesthat we are 'also' in the quantum world.....I believe that we are always in the quantum world....and this life that we are currently living here....a physical journey on this lovely merry go round of but A manifestation of that 'spirit that is all there is.

This week, in betwixt and between the many demands, I sat down with a cuppa and zapped thru the channels and landed in a documentary that is now high on my list of need/want to watch in its entirety. Beyond the Cosmos, a National Geographic docu based on the book by Brian Greene, a reknowned physicist. To our "hardcore scientific" fellow readers on this forum - those of you that feel Deepak only sells gobbledegook for the ignorant believers in fairy tales - I'd say please have a look at this documentary. Without having watched the entire documentary - I can say that the little bit that I saw - about the 'reality of black holes' and the possibility of a living hologram that we are all part of! Basically, what was discovered is that anything that disappears into a black hole, is not - contrary to former belief - gone forever, nope - the information of 'whatever' disappea

Nice to contemplate "Two Places at Once" unless the two places you have to be are the two jobs you have to work. What world do you live in Deepak?

I know you mean well. But what's so much better about being young than about being old? 70 is not young! I like being old.

There is so much prejudice today about being young and deny you're old. I am NOT a young lady. I do not want to be.

I just wouldn't feel right without exercising. I'm an old fart, and I've been active my whole life. …

I'm perfecting my howl also.

Thanks for the alert.
