Everything on Earth, was created in stars. So everything is in fact star-dust. And we all know that everything is made up of atoms, yes everything, also you and me. Because everything originates from star-dust, none of the atoms in your body are your own, original atoms but beautifully arranged, orchestrated star-dust.
Now what happens if you would zoom in on atomic level and look at these atoms? You would see that there is an enormous amount of space between the atoms. There is much more space than matter. In fact, atoms consist of 99.9999999999999999% empty space. So you and everything around you is more space than matter. You are almost not there if you would look at yourself under an electron microscope. You are just a bunch of loosely coupled atoms, with inter-particle distances that are so enormously large, you can’t even imagine! If you are sitting on a chair, it feels as if you are tightly coupled to that chair, but if you could look at your atoms and the atoms of the chair, you would only see vast amounts of space and no real atomic connection. So the screen you are now looking at, the chair you are sitting on, the floor your feet are resting on, the air you breathe and you yourself are just arrangements of atoms. On atomic scale you could probably not see the difference between your atoms and that of the chair you are sitting on. Rumi’s quote “Behind every atom of this world, hides an infinite Universe” gives a nice point of view on the enormous amounts of inter-particle space and how these particles still orchestrate together into something beautiful.
And Nassim Haramein has a very nice explanation on the enormous inter-particle distances (look at the figure of the renormalized vacuum density). He has shown that if we would collect all atoms/particles of our observable Universe, and arrange them next to each other (without inter-particle space) then it would still fit inside one cubicle centimeter! Amazing figures, don’t you agree?
The following anonymous text inspired me to think more about the space in space. “Before you judge others or claim any absolute truth, consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 kilometres per second across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not “you”. The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colours you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.”
This is quite amazing isn’t it? The idea that if you could see particles spinning in solid matter as well as in human beings or in fact all living beings, you would see that they spin inside a huge amount of space between them. So we are space beings. We have lots of room for improvement, given the empty spaces between our particles. Let’s fill this space with some positive energy. Energy that represents good, positive things like care, love, service to others, joy, happiness etc. There is room for it, so let’s claim it.
Figure found here. Albert Einstein knew: “Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” And Wes Nisker knew when he said: “The fact of the matter is that matter is no longer a fact”. Or what about Max Planck: “There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”
So Energy is really what we should be knowing all about. Matter matters less. Energy matters more. Everything is Energy. Even a solid rock. The atoms inside are still vibrating, keeping the rock together. A book you read is Energy. The letters themselves consist of atoms vibrating in a form that we have learned to recognize. This blog you are reading is Energy. The letters on your screen are vibrating in frequencies belonging to the English language. If the text was translated, the letters would vibrate in another frequency. Our thoughts and feelings are Energy. So everything is Energy. And it is with this Energy that we create our world. Nothing more, nothing less. If you think about it deeply, it’s in fact very simple. Energy creates. And since thoughts are Energy, thoughts create. And if you amplify the frequency of your Energy, the structure of matter will also change. In fact, everything in life is vibration (Einstein)
You don’t yet believe all of this? It doesn’t Matter. Because as a Matter of fact, Matter doesn’t really exist. But Energy does.
