If, as science has discovered, the very act of observing an event alters the course of that event, then how does that event make its way from where it is occurring to the brain where we receive and interpret the event?

A Vanderbilt University physics major and assistant professor working on his Ph.D. once told me that he thought it odd how science can search and search and search for a certain subatomic particle they believe exists, but find it so difficult to find.

Once found, however, everyone in physics starts finding the particle almost simultaneously.

The 100th Monkey Syndrome

That reminds me of Ken Keye Jr.'s famous "100th Monkey Syndrome." Keye tells the story of an experiment involving sweet potatoes and monkeys on a remote island.

Researchers buried sweet potatoes in the sand along the beach and waited to observe the monkeys' behavior when the discovered the sweet potatoes.

For the most part, they dug them up and simply ate them. Then, one day, one monkey, Imo, actually went into the water and washed the sweet potato first, then taught her mother.

But the strangest thing happened!

On other islands, where there was no communication between those monkeys and the those on the first island, all the monkeys there started washing their sweet potatoes simultaneously. Then another island, and another.

Perhaps we're not too unlike monkeys after all.

For more information read this article on Wikipedia. (opens in a new window)

As you'll see in the video below, which is well documented, the Keye story was simply a parable, and wasn't entirely true (that is, supported by fact).

Jesus also told parables, which some Christians take as literal fact. But parables are a way to communicate real knowledge in a way that can be understood by those hearing it, who might not have the proper (technical) reference points to understand the complex answer.

How, for example, would you describe color TV to a tribe of aborigines who had never come into contact with electricity or broadcasting? Do you remember the Cargo Cult phenomenon of World War II in which trash left behind by Allied troops was regarded as "a gift from the gods"?

If we do live in a holographic universe, then knowledge added to one piece is instantly added to all the other pieces.

Perhaps this could explain why certain inventions are discovered in remote parts of the world almost simultaneously, and why no one sees that elusive subatomic particle until the first physicist sees it and adds it to the collective databank, to the "primeval memory" so to speak.

But this raises the question: Did the first physicist actually "discover" something or was the "reality" of that new particle simply an act of creation itself? Is that subatomic particle "real" or is it simply a figment of the new collective imagination?

If thoughts and desires can create real, tangible effects, did that first physicist "will" that particle into being? And if so, is this what makes New Agers believe we are "gods" capable of creating any universe we want, though on a much, much smaller scale than that universe molded by the Ultimate Creator?

What is Reality?

I'm sure everyone recalls the old puzzle: If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there to hear it, did it actually make a sound at all?

As you've seen in the previous section, electrons flowing through a double gate alter their behavior, depending on the presence of a viewer.

The viewer is a participant, not just an observer.

It is similar to the philosophical/religious axiom that if you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem.

Another example: "Whatsoever ye have done to the least of these my brothers, ye have done it unto me." Was Jesus actually introducing the concept of quantum physics?

Was he pointing out how inter-connected we are?

How the Brain Collects Information

Everything we experience through our sense of sight, sound, touch, taste, etc. is experienced because of an electro-chemical event in the nervous system we'll call synaptic transfer.

For example, let's say we are in the forest when the tree falls. That cracking "sound" makes its way to our ears through mechanical sound waves, like the waves of a rock dropped into a pond.

Those mechanical waves whack up against our ear drums and are transformed into electrical impulses that travel from there to the end of the nerve cell.

A microphone is a good example of a tool that accepts mechanical sound waves and changes them into electrical signals.

In electrical engineering there are things called transducers that transform electrical energy into mechanical vibrations. This is similar, but just in reverse.

In the videos below you'll see how the sensation of sound (or any other sense we experience) is sent like an electric signal along a wire.

But each nerve is only so long, and comes to a stop. If we depended on that wiring for our TV, we'd have an open circuit and wouldn't be able to turn on the TV.

But the body is more complex. It has a way of sending the spark across a "spark gap" so to speak. At the end of the nerve are the dendrites that send signals out across the gap to the next closest dendrite, which passes it on - and even amplifies it in the process like pole transformers on your house current - until it gets to the brain.

Think of it like a bucket brigade, with the water bucket passed along from one to the other until it reaches the fire.

Once it reaches the brain, it is compared to the databank of existing memory to determine what it is.
