For some time now physicists have been exploring the relationship between human consciousness and the structure of matter. Previously it was believed that a Newtonian material universe was the foundation of our physical material reality. This changed when we began to recognize that everything in the universe is made out of energy. Matter, at its tiniest observable level, is energy. Human consciousness and intent, such as meditation, can influence it’s behavior and even re-structure it.
“A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.” (R.C. Henry, “The Mental Universe” ; Nature 436:29,2005)
