I like to think about history’s mysteries and the mysteries of the world a lot. My parents raised me and my brother so that we could go to whatever churches we wanted to go to, and they told us we should not join any church until we got married. We attended churches and spiritual places as we found them.
When I became a grownup, I had a lot of questions and thoughts about something I now know as Qi. In English, qi (also known as chi) is usually translated as “vital life force” and it has a healing aspect by its very nature, but qi goes beyond that simple translation. According to Classical Chinese Philosophy, qi is the force that makes up and binds together all things in the universe. It is paradoxically, both everything and nothing.
As I encountered the writing below, I was happy because I could not have stated it better my own self. I offer this to read with honor to the writer, Lynne McTaggart.
“Quantum physics findings show that consciousness itself created order – or indeed in some way created the world – this suggested much more capacity in the human being than was currently understood. It also suggested some revolutionary notions about humans in relation to their world and the relation between all living things. What they were asking was how far our bodies extended. Did they end with what we always thought of as our own isolated persona, or ‘extend out’ so that the demarcation between us and our world was less clear-cut? Did living consciousness possess some quantum field like properties, enabling it to extend its influence out into the world? If so, was it possible to do more than simply observe? How strong was our influence? It was only a small step in logic to conclude that in our act of participation as an observer in the quantum world, we might also be an influencer, a creator. Did we not only stop the butterfly at a certain point in its flight, but also influence the path it will take – nudging it in a particular direction?
This explains action at a distance, what scientists call non locality. The theory that two subatomic particles once in close proximity seemingly communicate over any distance after they are separated.”
