Renowned spiritual leader and author Deepak Chopra talks about energy and information in our material world in his book The Spontaneous Fulfillment Of Desire: Harnessing The Power Of Coincidence (2003): “ Everything in the visible universe is a manifestation of the energy and information of the quantum domain. The material world is a subset of the quantum world.”

        In Einstein’s theory of relativity, E = mc , energy equals mass times the speed of light squared. Meaning matter (mass) and energy is the same thing, only in different forms. Matter can simultaneously be defined as solid (particle) and as an immaterial force field (wave). In science we are taught that every solid  object i.e. a chair is made up of molecules, the molecules are made up of atoms. Atoms are made up of subatomic particles, which have no solidity at all. They are packets or waves of information and energy. How can invisible waves of energy and information be experienced as a solid object? Events in the quantum domain occur at the speed of light, at which our senses cannot process all that contributes to our perceptual experience. We process things being different from one another because energy waves contain different kinds of information. These are determined by the frequency or vibration of the energy waves. It is the same as being tuned in to different frequency on the radio. 101.5 is classical while 107.1 is rock. Energy is coded for different information depending on how it vibrates.

        There is a huge web of energy, or energy soup. What we perceive is chunks of this energy soup, whatever vibrates slower, i.e. “The chair” “ The body” and all the other physical objects. The difference between human and tree is the information and the energy content of each perspective body. On the material level, the tree and human are made up of the same recycled elements: Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen and other minute amounts of energies. Trees and humans exchange Carbon and Oxygen with each other. The real difference is in energy and information.

Our energy comes into contact with the energy around us. Sometimes we feel it when we walk into a room where the tension is thick, or a temple, where one feels overwhelming peace. That is the collective energy of the environment, mingling with our own energy that is registering on some level.

        Physicists say that we experience solidity because everything is made up of atoms and, the solidity is the sense of atoms bumping against atoms. Our eyes are programmed to see objects in three dimensions and as a solid. Our nerve endings are programmed to feel objects as a three dimensional solid.  In the quantum world, or domain as Deepak Chopra calls it, there is no solidity. If you will consider when two clouds meet, there is no solidity, they meld and separate. When we touch another object, the energy fields (electron clouds) meet, small portions meld together, and then we separate from the object. With every encounter, we exchange information and energy. We are all constantly sharing portions of our energy fields. So all of us are all connected, we are correlated.

       Living organisms must receive and interpret environmental signals in order to stay alive. Survival is directly related to speed and efficiency of signal transfer. The speed of electromagnetic signal verses speed of diffusible chemical is 186,000 miles/second, verses 1 centimeter/second. The science of physics implies that the same harmonic resonance mechanism, by which sound waves destroy kidney stones or goblets, can enable similar energy of harmonics to influence our body’s chemistry.

        All organisms including us humans communicate and read their environment by evaluating energy fields. Due to the fact that we are so dependent on language communication, we have neglected our energy sensing communication systems. As with any biological function a lack of use, leads to atrophy. The aborigines still use this hyper-sensory capacity in their daily life. For example Australian aborigines sense water deep underground, and Amazonian shamans communicate with the energies of their medicinal plants. We do get the occasional glimmer of our ancient mechanism. For example when we meet someone special, we become so energized. We experience constructive influence or good vibes.

     Connect with your energy sensing  mechanism by being aware of it and putting your attention to it, and you will notice how well you can get with practicing it, and how beneficial it can be in your life.
