Quantum Jumps into the Unknown


I’ve just read a book by Cynthia Sue Larson that should certainly appeal to my readers who are psychically inclined.  Larson has an excellent grasp of quantum physics and uses this in her book “Quantum Jumps” to demonstrate that the universe is set in a way that facilitates change, provided we’re willing and able to embrace it.  Her book provides an interpretation of consciousness that takes advantage of the ubiquitous uncertainty present in quantum physics.  She argues that this uncertainty, a fundamental part of our universe, allows us to move out of old patterns and into new ones, essentially “jumping” from one reality to another.

 

 

The idea isn’t new.  It’s along the same lines as “believe and receive” and of course “The Secret.”  It’s the idea that you can change your physical reality by changing your thinking.  What Larson brings to the party however, is an understanding of quantum physics and why it supports this type of thinking.  In addition she relies on a number of studies into how our thinking patterns affect our lives and how we can change them.  It’s this grounding in science that separates Larson’s work from so many new ages texts saying many of the same things.  While she necessarily deals in generalities, there is always enough specific information to let us know that she is actually competent in this area.

Of Particular interest to me was her adaptation of the “Many Universes” ideas that are currently popular in physics.  (I say “ideas” because these are not technically theories, being completely unprovable.)  She writes:

This book, Quantum Jumps, presents a radical new paradigm -that we exist in a holographic multiverse in which we can literally jump from one parallel universe to another.  Supported by distinguished source from the fields of physics, biology, psychology, sociology and medicine, Quantum Jumps provides you with the means to make an immediate shift to be the change you which to see in the world.

It’s the idea that we are literally shifting between different realities that already exist all the time.  To my knowledge, this idea was first put forth by Jane Roberts in 1978 in her “Seth” books:  The “Unknown” Reality, vol.’s 1 and 2.  (Although in the Seth books, this was not tied to existing quantum physics.)  In the Seth version, we affect all the other realities around us when we make changes.  Larson does not address this concept.

The idea is that there are an infinite number of realities existing all at once and we can jump from one to another effortlessly.  Let’s say for example that “Joe” has failed at love and never had a girlfriend.  But over time he changed his thinking so significantly that he “jumped” to a new reality.  He has memories of having failed at love and not being good at it, but in this reality he isn’t that way anymore.  Not only that, no one else remembers him as being that way either.  His past, as well as his present and future have changed as this part of his life has opened up.  Joe no longer has the emotional baggage that he once did and finds dating much easier.

At the subatomic level, it’s been observed that energy states do not gradually change.  Rather they make tiny discrete jumps up and down.  These are known as quanta, and what Larson has done is applied this principle to changes in our lives.  That is to say, change is not necessarily gradual, but can come in the form of discrete jumps, and when that happens we are actually jumping to a different reality.

Whether you will like this book depends on what you’re looking for.  I definitely recommend it for those that prefer to be given the facts in a straightforward way without the heavy technical or philosophical discussions.  In other words, the book is an easy read.  The book is more geared towards intuitive creative types rather than intellectuals.  Because I do both, I found the book lacking in the kind of detail I’m accustomed to from an intellectual standpoint, but still very good at getting the basic message across.

I think it’s a good book for the many psychic and intuitive people who visit my site.  The book has some very solid ideas about the nature of reality that can help you visualize how thinking differently can have a positive effect on your life.  The book presents a view of the universe as a fluid and dynamic place where the ability to change is built in.  Seeing the universe this way can help in visualizing and creating change in your life.

    The one thing I “got” from chem and organic chem (failed it), I want to be a “free radical”, with all the nuances of meaning.

    Cynthia has actually experienced reality shift,and so have i.In my interactions with her i have found that she is quite receptive and has collected a number of anecdotes.What bothers me though is whatever reality i shift into,the one factor that remains constant is, the wisdom of ecclesiastes,some how it pervades all the realities whether quantum shifted or any other process,vanity and vexation of spirit always rings true.

    As to the proposed hypothesis: If it is in fact a reality I think that what we would have is not multiple identities, but rather ourselves existing simultaneously as every possible version or ourselves. This could to some degree explain our internal conflict and multiplicitous consciousness.

    The Star Trek reference is interesting. I have often wondered if our imagination of possible reality is in fact a perception of the meta-dimension in which our reality is set. The more science uncovers about the nature of the universe, the more it seems probable that the intuitive/religious of human history were in fact aware of reality in a deeper sense than others. The scientific question I suppose that is left to be answered is to what degree conscious thought can affect that reality.

      I know that the Scientologists are not popular among many, and I have some problems with them, myself, but I don’t think that they are as bad as some want to say. Anyway, what you’re saying reminds me of the founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, claiming that what we “create” in science fiction, and even in the real world, is, many times, at least, just a subconscious remembering of things that we learned about in past lives. I believe that the movie theater design that we have in most theaters, today, is one example of this, according to Hubbard, at least.

        Hi Mark!
        Occultists (able to work in at least the lower ‘Astral’), know that ‘thought forms’ can be created – even unconsciously, in this realm.
        Cheers!

    Interesting. But I wonder if to a lessor degree that emotional baggage might still be there but even harder to pinpoint and extract.

    Hi Craig!
    I know this is a popular idea now. But, I still have logical problems with it. I’m a long time OBE inter-dimensional explorer. So, I’m always trying see possibilities and to keep an open mind. I can illustrate my problem using your example, above. O:K a close friend of mine (let’s say my spouse), of many years has (by my observation and that of other, family members), made a lot of changes and grown tremendously. I do remember that person’s past state or condition – as well as how they are now. So, who has jumped? The subject, (the spouse or friend), the family members? Or all of them? And how about all the ‘entangled’ relations – not as intimately connect to us, but not directly to the subject? What of their universe? This idea / model seems to violate the wise tether of Occam’s Razor. The more this idea is looked at the more unworkable it appears to become. Just my opinion.

    Cheers Craig! 🙂

      Hmmm…some people may be able to improve without jumping…

  7. Always a good reminder that we can affect change in our lives. All too often the rather mundane circumstances of year long ruts can seem like they are there to stay. Not so !

    And nice to have you back, Craig !

    It is refreshing to continually see more examinations of the correlation between quantum physics and superposition with the concept that we create our reality through our thoughts… Manly P. Hall meets David Bohm meets Seth.

    Thank you for sharing this book, Craig! I’m highly curious and will be exploring it further.

    I’ll check it out, thanks. You might also enjoy The Intention Experiment by Lynne McTaggart.

    This reminds me of that Star Trek: The Next Generation episode called: “Parallels.”
