And if we live in a 3D world it is hard to comprehend a 4D world or 5D world isn’t it? Yes, all this becomes more complicated for the human mind, but it is not impossible to understand as some folks would have you believe.
In fact, it’s relatively simple as Einstein showed and then went on to explain it through mathematics. He went over everyone’s head when he explained the relevance of his theories and how they related to the whole of existence and space-time.
Einstein himself was unsure if all his theories were right, often fighting with his own understanding of it all. Perhaps, this topic is of interest to you and perhaps you might like to take this discussion further, but first let me recommend an extremely good book to you:
“Foundations of Space-Time Theories; Relativistic Physics and Philosophy of Science” by Michael Friedman; 1983 by Princeton University Press.
This book discusses physics and philosophy in a way that makes things seem simple in relation to Einstein’s Theories. The author goes on to show how a layman can understand these concepts in a simple way, which takes all the guess work out of things.
Why would I recommend this book to you? Well, because I bought it and read it and feel that most all human beings can grasp these simple subjects, if they would only realize that they are not so difficult when explained correctly to the students. You too, can understand Einstein’s theories and what they mean to all we observe.
Physics is the study of the physical universe, and one wouldn’t expect to learn about the spiritual side of life, or the nonphysical universe when reading about it. However, Dr. Blood begins our education on this matter with an in-depth coverage of physics and quantum mechanics, the brain (including the synapse), and how these all pull together so that we can either see the spiritual side, or choose not to. The point of it is that there are several versions of reality to perceive while we choose to only see one; the existence of the soul can not be disproved, nor proven by science. So how does the nonphysical soul interact with the physical world? The soul can perceive the physical brain and through this, perceive the world. But, the physical world is not the only plane to be aware of. The soul can exist on many planes, the physical, the angelic plane, which is closest to the source of all, and the “jinn” plane, which is where our souls can communicate with other souls. Dr. Blood explains that our soul’s journey is much longer than that of our earthly existence, and that we have time to spend on each plane.
Dr. Blood describes spiritual practices which help us to remember that we are a nonphysical soul that has a physical body. These practices include meditation, yoga, focus on breathing, using retreats and finding teachers to help us. These practices though, are not the end goal. Our personality and contribution to society is important too. Dr. Blood states that we need to develop certain qualities like insight, compassion, friendship and wisdom and gives guidance on how to do so.
I was a little worried when I was asked to review this book. However, Dr. Blood takes a very complex topic and relates it to the average reader in a carefully chosen tone of support. The interest in spirituality is growing in leaps and bounds so that this connection to quantum physics will surely have a target audience, but, is still something of interest to the masses. The book is not an easy read, but it is worthwhile to wrap your physical mind around it for a time. Your spiritual mind will thank you.
