Physicist, writer and lecturer, Fred Alan Wolf, aka Dr. Quantum, discussed how physics is finally understanding the profound implications of God’s command: “Let there be light,” as science and spirituality merge. He outlined three important discoveries in quantum physics: The universe is not made of solid stuff, but is composed of the acts of consciousness that observe and recognize it; there is a mind-field that must be present in order for there to be a universe; and everything in the universe is made of light. He referred to various types of light as “luxon,” which not only includes light we see around us, but electrons, quarks, and other subatomic matter.
Describing the mind-field, he noted that the mind is not contained in the body, but rather the body is contained in the mind, and we are all of this one mind, and not separated from one another. The purpose of life stems from “God wanting to have this experience…we all sense the desire to have life…and as soon as we stop desiring these kinds of cycles, these kinds of dreams, the dream will change,” he stated.
Time loops as demonstrated in the Higgs Field, where particles interact and go backward in time and turn into a loop, fascinatingly hint that time isn’t only a one-way street, he detailed. He spoke about the concepts of deja vu, and the more exciting phenomenon of Jamais vu– “a sudden recognition that something new has just occurred.” Wolf also suggested people become more aware of what is happening in their lives, and by steering away from strictly material goals, they can gain more insight into the mind.
Fred Alan Wolf is a physicist, writer, and lecturer who earned his Ph.D. in theoretical physics at UCLA in 1963. He continues to write and lecture throughout the world, and conduct research on the relationship of quantum physics to consciousness.
Dr. Wolf has taught at the University of London, the University of Paris, the Hahn-Meitner Institute for Nuclear Physics in Berlin, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and San Diego State University in the United States. His work in quantum physics and consciousness is well known through his popular and scientific writing.
Quantum mechanics (QM — also known as quantum physics, or quantum theory) is a branch of physics dealing with physical phenomena at microscopic scales, where the action is on the order of the Planck constant. Quantum mechanics departs from classical mechanics primarily at the quantum realm of atomic and subatomic length scales. Quantum mechanics provides a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter.
The earliest versions of quantum mechanics were formulated in the first decade of the 20th century. At around the same time, the atomic theory and the corpuscular theory of light (as updated by Einstein) first came to be widely accepted as scientific fact; these latter theories can be viewed as quantum theories of matter and electromagnetic radiation, respectively. Early quantum theory was significantly reformulated in the mid-1920s by Werner Heisenberg, Max Born and Pascual Jordan, who created matrix mechanics; Louis de Broglie and Erwin Schrodinger (Wave Mechanics); and Wolfgang Pauli and Satyendra Nath Bose (statistics of subatomic particles). And the Copenhagen interpretation of Niels Bohr became widely accepted. By 1930, quantum mechanics had been further unified and formalized by the work of David Hilbert, Paul Dirac and John von Neumann, with a greater emphasis placed on measurement in quantum mechanics, the statistical nature of our knowledge of reality, and philosophical speculation about the role of the observer. Quantum mechanics has since branched out into almost every aspect of 20th century physics and other disciplines, such as quantum chemistry, quantum electronics, quantum optics, and quantum information science. Much 19th century physics has been re-evaluated as the “classical limit” of quantum mechanics, and its more advanced developments in terms of quantum field theory, string theory, and speculative quantum gravity theories.
Popularly known as Dr. Quantum, Fred Alan Wolf joined Lisa Garr in a live webcast on April 4, 2012, for this conversation about space and time and what it means to live in a holographic universe. Exploring from the deep perspective of quantum physics, he described how we can take charge of our lives at the quantum level. Dr. Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., is a physicist, writer and lecturer who earned his doctorate in theoretical physics at UCLA in 1963. He was featured in the groundbreaking films the Secret and What the Bleep Do We Know? He has written 11 popular books on physics, including Taking the Quantum Leap, which earned the National Book Award for Science in 1982. Dr. Wolf has appeared on numerous radio and television programs, including The Discovery Channel’s The Know Zone.
