Everything Is Energy — New Way To See Reality
Have you ever thought of what is really real? Well the latest discoveries in quantum physics show that nothing is as it seems. In fact, it has been proven that everything around us, including us, is made up of pure energy.
In a physical world, it has been long thought that at the core of everything lie small material particles that are the building blocks of our reality.
For that purpose, physicists have tried to understand just how these building blocks construct the physical world we live in.
Many experiments have been made, and with every new advancement in quantum physics, more and more information points to the fact that at the core of all existence lies a pure energetic network that seems to intertwine in ways that construct our reality.
As soon as scientists started smashing electrons in enormous accelerators, they found that the building blocks of all matter is in fact energy.
These seemingly physical bodies contain nothing more and nothing less than pure energy rich with information.
What is even more fascinating, scientists have found that electrons function as both waves and particles at the same time!
Depending on the circumstances, these sub-atomic particles behaved differently. Interaction and observation were shown to affect the way these particles behaved.
When conscious observation was present, the particles (which when unsupervised acted as waves) started acting like physical units. In other words, perhaps the world around us exists simply because a kind of consciousness holds it together into existence.
This consciousness has been referred to as ‘collective consciousness’, ‘God’, ‘Logos’ and many other interpretations which posed the theory that all existence is at it is because of some kind of consciousness holding it together.
This massive amount of energy which consolidates into what seems to be the physical reality can thus easily change its shape and form depending on the consciousness observing it.

So, what creates the mutual reality that all humans perceive?
Scientific finds have shown that everything in the universe is strangely connected on some level in what is called a “quantum entanglement”.
In experiments they have made, they discovered that once particles have interacted, they remain connected, or energetically “entangled” and will remain affected by one another, no matter the physical distance.
Knowing that we are all in the essence made up of the same elements that were present during the Big Bang, it seems that everything around us, everyone around us, including us – everything is connected.
This energy that makes up all existence contains all the information of all there is, was and ever will be. The tangled web of information is what creates essentially us and everything around us and we owe it our consciousness and perception.
As confusing as it may seem, the energy that builds our universe is materialized into what we and everything around us is thanks to that same consciousness we possess that materializes it.
It is like we are in a constant dance with our existence on levels that cannot be easily comprehended.
As Swami Muktananda puts it, “The Self, Shiva, is supremely pure and independent, and you can experience it constantly sparkling within your mind. It cannot be perceived by the senses, because it makes the senses function.
It cannot be perceived by the mind, because it makes the mind think. Still, the Self can be known, and to know it we do not need the help of the mind or the senses.”
So perhaps it’s not only time and space that give the dimension of reality its current form. Consciousness on a broader level is what puts time, space and matter into existence in the first place. Otherwise, it would all be intangible energy that is in a constant, ungraspable, shifting motion.
