Robert Lanza, a notable microbiologist, sprang into my view today thanks to Alphan Manas, a notable futurist and inventor. Alphan posted an article on Twitter about Robert's impeccable theory on life and death from a scientific viewpoint.
The article which caused such an internal stir is linked to this beautiful picture of a quantum vortex, a representation of double spin.
The reason this article is so outstandingly impressive is that it makes perfect, logical sense of the life-death sequence and the evidence is so irrefutable that we have to take notice of the fast-becoming-fact that this life we live is part of an unfathomable infinity which makes the quantum nature of living indefatigable.
We are brought up most commonly to believe that an afterlife is, at best, a hedged bet and at worst an impossibility. The longer I've been on this planet, the more certain I've become that "life as we know it" is a manufactured illusion, a neatly boxed version of the truth which takes no account of the bigger picture.
The image on the left is a representation of quantum tornadoes. This article is of more interest to semiconductor enthusiasts than psycosmic explorers, but it's also a door-opener to wider interpretations of what can be done with quantum foam. As sure as researchers can manipulate the electron-photon relationship (to come up with a new particle, of course, in the process), we can manipulate the nature of our own existence to maximise the benefits of living. The benefits of living have nothing to do with a quest for wealth or having twelve cars or a personal aeroplane, but everything to do with quality of life.
We are, on a social scale, so obsessed with becoming rich that we feed a burgeoning industry selling bingo online and lottery tickets to millions and millions of people. Who benefits most from this fiscal addiction is not a difficult question but a really difficult question is how we got ourselves into this mess, and how we are going to get ourselves out of it. For while we are gorging on gambling, groceries and gadgetry, the earth is suffering the most appalling ravages and we are bleating that we can't do anything about that, because other people are to blame. Those other people are more powerful, more despotic, and more callous than we are. Apparently. At least, that's what we tend to believe.
Clearly we have a multiple choice of multiverses to choose from on our journey through infinity, but what we do with this life we lead right now really does matter to us personally in the course of our own evolution. If we fail to learn from our histories, more than likely we'll be forced to repeat them. This principle echoes through all great spiritual doctrines from Buddhism to the Akashic - therefore it surely makes sense to sit up and take note of what we are doing, so that if necessary we can change it. We have the power to change our own existence any time we like. My empowerment courses have changed so many lives, I'm convinced beyond doubt that every human has the power within them to make the most amazing things happen through personal will.
Having taken a peek behind this final image, you might throw your hands up and cry, "What the hell? There's no stopping this, the whole world revolves around commerce and consumerism." Well, so it does. But you have a choice, right now, just as we all do at every point in time wherever we are on our world-line of infinity. We have a permanent choice to make the most of what we have, or to want what we haven't got. Time perhaps to ask ourselves where the road to riches has led us so far, and whether the permanently unattainable goal has been worth the permanent pursuit.
