    Fascinating! I love this type of thing. This is an excellent, succinct explanation of Quantum Physics/mechanics that is easily understandable. I'ts mindblowing, but feels like fundamental information we as a species NEED to grasp. More of this please Vishen. Thank you.

    Yay, finally the rest/west of the world is catching up! Maori/Eastern philosophy have known this all along. In my culture (Maori) it is explained along the time lines as followed:

    Te Kore (The Nothingness)

    Te Po (The Potential/The Great Realm of Night)

    Te Whai ao (Unconsciousness/Coming into the Realm of Light)

    Te Ao Marama (Consciousness/The Realm of Light)

    Of course this is the shortened version my ancestors would would literally stand for stand for days incorporating the above into their genealogy until they come back to themselves. Food for thought.

    Thanks for the video guys, awesome stuff.

    There is no reality!!??

    I don't know about that. I doubt that my brain has enough imaginative power to create a universe so detailed. But of course quantum mechanics/physics says we overlap over an infinite # of universes. I think that everybody else I'm seeing is real, and that they're manufacturing their own universe, and i'm doing the same. I think all of us is quite literally our own god, and we're reacting and interacting with every single possible entity, and together creating the known universe. Who are these people to say what's real and what's not? They haven't been outside the box (the universe) to know enough about what's going on. In my opinion, the universe is a work of art by God and/or the cosmos, the powers that be, whatever.

    There is no reality!!?? That's nonsense!

    I doubt my brain, or for that matter any one brain has enough imaginative power to create the universe. Then again, maybe so. Quantum physics/mechanics says we overlap over an infinite number of universes. With that kind of energy, who knows. The people I've seen are real, and the universe is too real and detailed to be an illusion. The people in my reality/universe are probably creating their own version of reality, and we're part of theirs as much as they are part of ours. I think we all create the universe together.

    In my opinion, the entity called GOD, the Cosmos, the powers that be, whatever created the universe, and he/she/they created it in such a way that's it's more so of a work of art than that which has a purpose. Try to think of it as a gift or a simple project.

    Just who are these people to say what's real and what's not? They haven't been outside the box ( the universe) to know enough about what's going on. None of us do. Granted, we do have many answers, but no way do we have them all. And to say there is no reality is something I think many people would agree, is utterly laughable, and probably at the bottom of the list of possible answers considering current assumptions of the universe.

    • Ramahandra says:

      I dont think you got the true meaning of it: Reality is a REAL experience, at the same time it is extremely dependent on our perception and malleable to your desires…

  • Wow… Mind Bending :)

    Cheers!!

  • mike says:

    i cant explain it in words ,but i beleive in my soul that quantum physics is the key to everything we are unable to master as of yet ,time travel,deep space exploration, interdimentional jumping,healing,i'm just a laymen but i understand more and more how it works ,apply what i know daily , i no longer beleive in what is presented before as absolute reality , our world is changing , and so are we ,we must return to the mystics and see what we've missed !!!

  • Steve says:

    What an ego trip!
    Now the Universe, not just the Sun and planets, revolves around Man!
    So, it is our Intension and Attention that orders the Universe………well, God Help Us, because we have done a Hell of a job so far with our inflated egos.

    • Kathy says:

      I do not think that anything revolves around man. I do believe in the Quantum Physics. mechanics theories, but applied to the consciousness of nature. If you consider nature has existed as a state of matter, that we can perceive, for as long as we have and eons longer, then it would be natures intelligence and consciousness creating and projecting everything that we see and feel. Since we are nature, or part of it, we contain this same consciousness. Man is but a small cell in the body of earth, in the body of the universe and so on. Man is interconnected with all life, life is energy vibrations, slowed down in this existence to a physical vibration that we perceive as our reality. I do believe we are multiversal and nature is mutliversal, that we are all, including nature, creating all of the time with our thought energy (consciousness). Just my thoughts.

    The puzzle comes together.
    Living maya, illusion is always a safe and tried option we can go back to but
    for the brave of heart a leap into the concept presented in this video is like a challenge of climbing Mt Everest
    We all originate from a "condensed pea" that expanded into infinite universe(s) and that explains why our mind is not only in our body but our mind= energy goes to where we direct our attention.
    interconnectedness and influence is a fascinating concept.

    Great video, but it would have been much more enjoyable if the "underscoring" hadn't been so loud…louder than the spoken word at times. That said, I humbly submit that that is my perception and apparently the reality I created. Perhaps I could create a more pleasing reality next time…if you would just lower the volume. Thanks

    To infinity and Beyond …Buzz light year.. What were those guys from Toy Story thinking . mMMM . It is
    quite understandable if someone is told that a table was called book or vise versa . That definition would have a great impact on earth or any other definition. Talking about great people what about the guy who bulit Corral Castle in Homestead Florida, Ed.If a kid is programmed a certain way then he'll respond to its world in a different way and I think that the beginning was it and now we are evolving so much faster . I'll suggest you'll go search for Eds' sweet sixteen. He was a freemason but she……

    Realities that we create… all in our minds -but we are all connected and to what to who? I say – go to the Source BIG BANG THEORY- We are part of GOD The ATOM, the pea- the bursting of energy that is expanding. I am, I was and forever will be and so are we. —no one has all the answers but we can look and consider all our ideas together and connect because we are connected—the reality is bigger thank we think—–think outside the box—– Rosa Ungaro

  • Kris Keshav says:

    Stimulating video, one that stretches the mind to the extreme, BUT IT IS ANOTHER BELIEF SYSTEM created by Quantum Scientists. Can we ever know the truth of what Reality is with our limited mind. I doubt it, but I need a symbol of that which represents the Truth, another God.

    GENTLEMEN,
    READ MOST OF THE SOPHOMORIC COMMENTS AND QUANTUM PHYSICS GIBERISH.
    HERE IS THE SCOOP, THE REAL SCOOP, AND HOPE YOU LEARN SOMETHING FROM ME:
    LIFE DID NOT BEGIN WITH YOU 'BIG BANG', ONLY THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE, WHICH, BY NATURE IS ILUSORY AND TEMPORARY. THE ONLY REALITY THAT EXISTS IS GOD, OR LOVE, AND THAT IS OUR TRUE NATURE, AS SPIRIT AND AN EXTENSION OF 'HIM'. ALL THE REST IS NOTHING BUT COMMENTARY. END OF LESSON 1. TY, CC.

    Is it possible that some laws do not apply across all spectrums? Don't Newtonian laws fall by the wayside when one gets to quantum physics? Why then should we assume that all these theories should apply to us?

  • Emery A Cournand says:

    Very interesting video. It shows that everything is based on experience and all experience is phenomenal. It shows that everything that we 'know', we 'know in relation to something else that we 'know', but at the very base we actually ‘know’ nothing but what we 'feel' or 'sense'. Fundamentally it illustrates in a scientific way what Kant stated hundreds of years ago- since Time and Space are relative to experience and do not really exist as separate entities, and ‘matter’ depends upon time and space to verify its existence, ‘matter’ does not really exist as an entity separate from consciousness. It also shows why a dependence on sensual experience to verify what is real is flawed. It debunks the contemporary scientific belief that there exists an objective reality and in doing so shows how the whole of modern civilization with its consumerism and its emphasis upon Capitalism and material wealth is based upon a lie.
    What really matters, no pun intended, is not 'matter' but the vibrating patterns of energy which, are more likely linked, for lack of better words to 'spirit' or ‘consciousness’. It emphasizes that we should be focusing on what ‘consciousness’ is all about instead of the collective illusions that manifest themselves as objective reality. We should also be trying to heighten the level of human experience through the arts and spiritual teachings, in order that we as intelligent and sensitive centres of ‘consciousness’ and creativity, should fulfill our destinies. It shows that human civilization should be directed towards experiencing the transcendental instead of towards individualistic and hedonistic self-indulgence.

    • mindmogul says:

      I believe that is why most of the greatest movies ever made are geared toward those that embody the main character as someone who is on a mission and has a destiny. In essence we are all searching for our destiny. Our destinies are always there for us to consciously perceive, we just have so much useless programming in the way, so we cannot "see."

    God, reality, illusion…..these are weak attempts by "humans", also included, to label that which we don't fully and even partially understand. All we know is that we exist as part of something that is inconcievably greater than we could possibly fathom.
    Quantum physics actually supports the idea of "God" as creator, supports the idea that God is everywhere, and that we are all part of God and have existed and will exist ideologically in some form or other forever…..whatever that means.
