Divine Particles: Consciousness and Physics (Part 2)
A philosophical and spiritual analysis of light, time and relativity.
When we analyze the biggest contributions that people have made to the world from an evolutionary and spiritual point of view, we can start noticing that they always come from a higher level of consciousness than the average but they are only accepted and truly understood once the public gets to that new level of consciousness. For example, when Jesus or Buddha gave their teachings, they were completely misunderstood and that misunderstanding gave rise to the Middle Age and all the pains that it brought with it.
But it was a necessary stage. Humanity had to go through that whole era of pain and suffering to actually get a grasp and understand the true meaning of the teachings that were received. Every human who is ahead of his time exists for a reason:
To help humanity grow.
When the fields of art, science, politics or economy bring new advances, they encourage people to understand them because we, as humans, are inherently attracted to novelty and to raise our level of consciousness.
Infancy is no more than the path that we take to get to the same level of consciousness as our parents and society in general, but afterwards, when there is a separation of the paternal and maternal figure, or as some psychologists call it: the killing of the parents, we start transcending their teachings and start going beyond them. To do something of our own.
Every generation brings with it the possibility to transcend the previous generations and that’s the ever repeating dynamics of the Kosmos.
Now, when we take Einstein’s teachings, for example, we see that when they were first released, humanity wasn’t ready. The collective consciousness wasn’t high enough to embrace the possibilities of time being relative or gravity being geometrical. In fact, when Einstein got his Nobel Prize, he didn’t get it for his Relativity Theories because the academic society simply didn’t understand them well enough. However, these teachings encouraged society to open their mind and embrace all the crazy concepts that these theories brought. And they finally accepted them; when they were ready.
Before Einstein, people wouldn’t have even imagined of a device capable of seeing through the human body. But when Einstein brought the possibility of the existence of x-rays, people were encouraged to research and to finally build them. They were actually first built after he died.
Nowadays, it is a very normal thing to think about x-rays. They’re nothing new or strange for us. Just like the GPS, digital cameras and many other inventions that were possible thanks to his attributions.
But what Einstein did was not just inventing a bunch of new revolutionary theories. What he did was far deeper. He got to a higher level of consciousness than the average, and after he achieved it, he just looked at the universe from that level.
Einstein didn’t make his theories based on the existing physics. He transcended Newton’s level of consciousness and then built a new type of physics that came from that new level of consciousness.
That’s why Einstein’s theories were so revolutionary. Because they invited people to transcend their current view, not only of physics but of the Kosmos. To understand this new physics, people had to transcend their current level of consciousness and get to a higher ground to be able to see the world in the same way as Einstein saw it.
But this transcendence wasn’t merely an acceptance of some new concepts like the nature of time or the relativity of all measurements. This transcendence had to be deeper because of the implications that it had. If people had a perspective on the divinity based on the classical mechanistic physics, now they had to not only rethink their perspective on time and space but also their perspective on the relationship between God, time and space.
What Einstein brought was not only two new branches of physics: Modern Physics and the basis for Quantum Physics. He also brought a new way of conceiving the world for physicists and mathematicians. A perspective on the Kosmos that was explained through science and numbers rather than philosophy and religion.
What is important to understand is that, although he brought a bigger and deeper picture of conceiving the Kosmos, he didn’t bring the biggest or the deepest. There is still room for more development in physics. A way of understanding the Kosmos that embraces all, including consciousness, life, transcendence and divinity, and obviously, mathematical and physical abstractions. In short: An ultimate map of the Kosmos.
