## Quantum World Summary

What do you think? For me, this quantum world is one crazy and hard world to comprehend, and I suspect that is one reason why it so intrigues me. I view this quantum world as being contrary to common sense. In my books Chapter 9, on the human brain, I discuss the engrossing subject of how the quantum subatomic world interacts with, and in the process has a major influence on our brain’s electrical and neurochemical elements. In Chapter 19, I discuss the human fascination with trying to explain the many mysteries of Nature and human nature. This quantum world certainly contains a host of mysteries. The Quantum Physics subatomic world and its dual nature of energy/matter, its particle/wave component, its ability of bilocation, its ceaseless motion surely makes for one mysterious and incomprehensible world. Albert Einstein just could not accept a world that is made up of waves of probability, yet ironically his theories actually endorse this ensorcelling and spooky miniature world. There really is no-one who understands this “other-worldly” quantum world. Niels Bohr said if a person is not shocked by the subatomic world then that person has no understanding of what it theorizes and stands for. Bohr contended that the quantum world is stranger than one could ever imagine, or even begin to invent. Robert Berman maintains, “no one has the slightest idea what is going on, or how subatomic particles can perform these impossible feats of anti-logic.” (1998) I appreciate the title of Patricia Topps book, …

## Classical and Quantum

I find all aspects of Nature inspiring. I have made an effort to understand the natural world and the human worlds. However, the division between Classical Physics and Quantum Physics has complicated my understanding. Classical Physics is the world of Newtonian Physics. Classical Physics is the world of macro physics, or the world of the large. It is the world of the telescopic. The profound invention of the telescope opened up the macroscopic world for investigation —–> galaxies, stars, and planets. The world of macroscopic variables contain large properties with massive amount of atoms clumped together. Classical Physics is deterministic. Sir Isaac Newton’s Universe is a predictable world. However, Quantum Physics is an entirely new world I want to have a better understanding of. Quantum Physics is the world of the atom —–> the world of the immensely small. Quantum theory is about reality at the basic, the very primal level. Quantum Physics is the world of micro physics or the world of the extremely small where Nature is described with the nanoscale. The profound invention of the microscope has opened up the world of the microscopic for investigation; i. e. atoms and cells. For two thousand years the idea was that an atom was solid matter. But in the early 1900’s scientists started to question what makes up an atom. In 1900 Max Plank unveiled the unbelievable, and very hard to understand quantum theory of matter. The Quantum Physics subatomic world and its dual nature of energy/matter, its particle/wave component, its …

## Atoms

Any attempt to understand Nature or the natural world has to understand atoms. In building my nature-based Theory of Balanceology, I had to take into consideration the atomic world. Atoms are those mysterious and extremely small particles having a typical diameter of 0.00000008 centimeters. It is impossible for me to perceive of something that size. The ubiquitous atom! Everything is made of atoms and atoms are mostly empty space. A void of space is the common denominator for all matter. A typical atom is 99.9999999 % empty space. Atomic solidification is an illusion because atoms are really empty space with infinitesimally small particles of matter moving in that space, and by definition that makes us humans mainly vacuous space. If we take an ultra-microscope and magnify, magnify, magnify an atom we discover little matter in this atomic micro world. Instead we will find more of a void of pulsating energy. Thus, atoms have sub-nuclear particles that are really energy. In 1938 Germany, an atom was split for the first time releasing 200,000,000 volts of pulsating electrical energy. Democritus‘ vision of the uncuttable particle is wrong. For these incredibly small particles of empty space are indeed cuttable. Atoms have three elementary particles: 1.) a proton with a (+) electrical charge, 2.) an electron with a (-) electrical charge, and 3.) a neutron with no electrical charge. Atoms for the most part are empty space where electrons go around a nucleus of protons and neutrons. The nucleus is the core of an atom …

## Atomic System

The Theory of Balanceology is a nature based system. And, we can’t discuss Nature without discussing the Atomic Theory. The Greeks had a remarkable prescience in first guessing that matter has an atomic nature. In the 4th Century BC Democritus theorized there was a basic particle of matter. He postulated there had to be some foundational particle that couldn’t be divided and called it the atom. The word atom is from the Greek word atomos = indivisible (uncuttable). Lucretius said that matter exists of invisible particles (100 BC). Chemist John Dalton proposed an atomic theory saying, “all materials are made up of small, uncuttable particles called atoms.” (1803) Atoms are fundamental and foundational for the interconnectivity in Nature that I have been pointing out. Atoms are those universal subtratum particles for everything. Atomism indicates that there is no distinction between the celestial and the terrestrial, for at the atomistic level there doesn’t exist a celestial and terrestrial dichotomy. It is amazing when I think that any single atom existing today is connected to the first Primordial Atom —> that 13.7 bya neutron ball, and that includes the atoms that make us. It is fascinating to conceptualize and realize that after we die our atoms will continue in the Cosmos in some other form. It is knowledge like primordial connectively and unity that has helped me to philosophically and psychologically understand the natural world, and was very instrumental in helping me build my naturalistic-based worldview. It is such knowledge as this that I …

## Nature’s Recycling Journey

The Law of Conservation of Energy is a natural Cosmic Law of real significance. For Lucretius “nothing is ever created out of nothing,” and “nothing is ever annihilated.” (trans. 1951) Energy can be transformed but not destroyed. That is, the conservation of energy makes for energy being a grounding natural constant in the Universe. It may be transformed and changed in some way, but the amount always stays the same. Ultimately it is energy that flows, is transformed, but is never eliminated. Energy is never lost! Energy conservation concerns maintaining a balance between the energy that comes in, and the energy going out. Energy has been on a natural re-cycling journey for 13,700,000,0000 years. And, of real significance in the Theory of Balanceology I discuss in detail how we humans are energy flow patterns. Arnold Benz said, “there is no indication that the order of nature, the fundamental laws of physical symmetries have altered since the Big Bang. Laws of conservation and other basic equations were perhaps already valid at the beginning of the universe. Total energy, electrical charges, the number of leptons, and the fundamental parameters in the universe appear to have remained constant for over 14 billion years.” (2000)

## Mathematical Patterns

I want to present some examples of mathematical patterns found in Nature by pointing out the following: 1.) fibonacci numbers that allow for an integer sequence where the two previous numbers are added together to form a new number, 2.) pi (3.1416) is a constant pattern in Nature, 3.) Newton’s foundational gravity equation can be found throughout the Universe (F = Gm1m2/r2), 4.) mathematical natural patterns are found in music scales, and 5.) there are patterns in the vis-viva equation models of the motion of orbiting bodies. Modern cosmological theories view our Universe as a mathematical object. Mathematical language involves computational techniques that help understand the fundamental regularity and order of Nature’s ways. I find it exceptionally interesting that Nature has given the human brain a primitive sense of mathematics that allows us to interact with the Universe and discern its numerical properties. This inherited mathematical sense has given us the ability to predict and to help discover the truths of Nature. It is mathematics and science that makes it possible to investigate the macro classical world and the micro quantum world. In the Theory of Balanceology, I indicate how I use mathematics in the measurement of human characteristics, features, behaviors, symptoms, impediments to growth, need satisfaction, treatment planning, and even if Balancetherapy is successful or not —-> by baseline differential. I include mathematics in constructing Balanceology’s Bell–Balance Curve and Bell-Health Curve.

## Mathematics and Nature

Mathematics was not my best subject in school, but I now understand it is the universal language to study Nature. Galileo said, “mathematics is the language in which God has written the universe.”(17th Cent) I amend his quote by saying mathematics is the language to investigate the truths in Nature. The preponderance of evidence indicates that we live in a mathematical Universe. Mathematics substantively gives us a path in studying and understanding the reality of our Universe. Mathematics provides a structural reality to study the natural courses that exist in the natural and human worlds. Physicist Eugene Wigner proposed, “the miracle of the appropriateness of the language of mathematics for the formulation of the laws of physics is a wonderful gift which we neither understand or deserve” (1960) I have come to appreciate the existence of mathematical numbers throughout the natural and human worlds. Since the Big Bang the Universe has had its indefeasible mathematical constants governing its laws in an orderly manner. In reality, there are just a handful of inviolable constants supporting Nature’s spatial and temporal properties. In the Theory of Balanceology, I indicate that there are consequences for humans when we contradict the laws of Nature. Our Universe is a vast interconnected web that mathematics helps decipher, decode, and bring order to. It is natural patterns having a mathematical basis that brings this order. Some natural patterns are concerned with the connectivity factors of unity, cyclicity, harmony, and balance. There are factors …
