I’m taking some time off, so enjoy this first edition of Quantum Sunday’s exploration into the world of nonviolent Muslims, their lives, their work, and their observation of the world through the eyes of peace.
Quantum Sunday, posted every Sunday, is a sort of pop quantum physics exploration into what the wave function (quantum term) is and what the role of the observer (quantum term) means, metaphysically and as it may apply to the human psyche and the manifestation of peace in world. Essentially, my loose thesis is that if the wave function is the wave aspect of a dual state of energy manifestation, the unified field within which, from which we are all springing, the source of potential three-dimensional manifestations, a Gestalt of Everything That Is, then the Wave, essentially, is God. By the same token, if God is the Wave and we, as the observers, in quantum terms, are co-creators, for we create from the source of the wave by way of the experience of our observation; therefore, observation itself is, metaphysically, a sacred act, how then do we observe? Do we observe from a place of conscience or from a place of self-interest, and how does our observation affect the manifestations of our lives and contribute to the evolution of world events and of mankind, for fundamental to quantum physics, fundamental to our very existence, according to quantum physics, is the principle of unity.
Most of what Hundredth Hummingbird deals with is the truthful observation of world events, it is concerned with the truth, especially the truth which the mainstream media tends to avoid or under-report, but also the deeper truths simply in stories, the value of telling this or that truth and of exploring its ramifications.
On Quantum Sunday, however, I explore the spiritual ramifications of my own exploration into the principles of quantum physics, because it seems to me that quantum physics both unifies and transcends the world’s religions and that it brings us, because of the unified field of oneness which it proclaims, ultimately to peace.
I have been, for several weeks, exploring the nonviolent Christians from a rather loose quantum perspective, in keeping with the quantum principle of observation, I observe that their observation is through the eyes of conscience, of nonviolence, and of peace.
Now, Quantum Sunday is embarking on an exploration of peacemaker Muslims, beginning with the phenomenal Yusuf Islam or as he was known way back when, in the days when I sang his songs with teenage devotion, Cat Stevens, a peacemaker who renounced the material world and left the outer edge of darkness, to ride on the peace train.
Be back next Sunday exploring Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus! Insha’Allah!
