I woke up early a few days ago and my first thought was All the Light We Cannot See. As I’m sure many of you know, that is the title of a wildly successful book written by Anthony Doerr in 2014 for which he won the Pulitzer Prize. It’s a heart-wrenching tale of a blind French girl living in Paris with her widowed father and a young orphaned boy growing up in Germany as Hitler comes to power. Their lives are irrevocably ravaged by World War II and their paths intersect. If you have not yet read it, I highly recommend it. Click here for the Book Summary
But that story isn’t what woke me up. The book’s title re-triggered some thoughts that have been rattling around in my head. We are mortal human beings occupying these vessels we call our bodies. Our brains and our senses are amazing tools and machines that can do so many things. But they are finite and can only do so much. We can only see and comprehend as much as our brains aided by the machines we build allow us.
The most brilliant mathematicians and physicists have developed theories and proofs that were inconceivable 100 years ago. Yet even their discoveries are limited by the capacities and limits of their marvelous minds.
Imagine for a moment all the things we cannot see. Beings, worlds, parallel universes and worm holes all around us—right in front of us—yet invisible to us because of our limitations. Some of the early Spanish explorers of the islands in the Caribbean wrote in their journals that when their ships anchored offshore the indigenous peoples didn’t “see” them because they couldn’t comprehend such things could possibly exist.
Theoretical mathematicians have proven there are at least 11 eleven dimensions and suspect many more. What’s going on in those other dimensions? Are there intelligent beings or energies occupying those realms?
My son-in-law, Ryan, sent me this article that was in the New York Times a few years ago. Quantum Mechanics- Spooky Action. https://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/22/science/quantum-theory-experiment-said-to-prove-spooky-interactions.html
I don’t profess to remotely understand the theory, but here are a couple of excerpts that jumped out at me.
Scientists… in the Netherlands reported that they had conducted an experiment that they say proved one of the most fundamental claims of quantum theory — that objects separated by great distance can instantaneously affect each other’s behavior…
….a series of precise experiments by physicists are increasingly erasing doubt that two previously entangled particles, even if separated by the width of the universe, could instantly interact.
I find great comfort in this. Think about it. We as parents could not be more entangled with our children. We share so much in common—not only DNA—but shared memories, feelings, emotions and instincts. And most important, love. When we lose a child there is a very real and painful knowing and feeling of separation—loss. We can’t see, hold, hug and cuddle them—or, at least, that’s what we are taught to believe.
But what if, even though we are physically separated from the deeply entangled particles that are our children—and even though they are now somewhere else either close or unimaginably far away—in another dimension, parallel universe, heaven, or even right here —we are still able to instantaneously interact with them and affect one another’s lives? Something much more than just a thought away.
I’m not the only one to weigh in on this subject. In follow up posts, I will revisit some of the things we’ve learned from two Catholic priests—Father Pat O’Malley and Monsignor Clement Connolly—and others including our medium, Tarra, and Shaman Jade Wah’oo Grigori.
