    le pèlerin est bridé et enlunetté

    le frein de la curiosité

    Après avoir entendu cela, je fus horrifié, en réalisant à quels compagnons je m’étais lié! L’un (j’y songeai) faisait mention d’une bride. Le nom de l’autre était Aveuglement. On disait de sa Reine qu’elle s’appelait Vanité (bien que cela semblait avoir été un lapsus inconsidéré). Et quoi encore? Dès lors, je marchai en silence, les yeux baissés, à pas comptés, plus ou moins contre mon gré. Passe-partout s’exclama: “Eh toi, maintenant, girouette, j’ai bien l’impression que tu as l’intention de retourner en arrière?” Et avant que j’aie eu le temps de répondre, il me jeta une bride sur le cou, dont le mors s’inséra promptement dans ma bouche. Il remarqua en même temps: “Maintenant tu persévéreras plus facilement dans ce que tu as entrepris !” J’examinai la bride et vis qu’elle était faite de lanières de curiosité, le mors ayant été forgé dans l’acier de la ténacité . Puis je réalisai que je ne voyagerais plus à travers le monde en toute liberté, comme je l’avais fait auparavant, mais serais contraint par mon esprit superficiel et insatiable.

    les lunettes de l’aveuglement

    Entre-temps, le second guide, de l’autre côté, remarqua: “Pour ma part, je t’offre ces lunettes à travers lesquelles tu examinera le monde.” En disant cela, il me fixa les lunettes sur le nez et immédiatement tout prit un aspect différent ; les lunettes avaient la propriété (comme je pus le vérifier bien des fois par la suite) de rendre les objets éloignés proches et les proches éloignés, les petits grands et les grands petits, les choses laides belles et les belles laides, les noires blanches et les blanches noires, et ainsi de suite. Ce qui fit que je réalisai avec quelle bonne raison on l’appelait Illusion, puisqu’il fait et sait vendre de telles lunettes aux hommes.

  •     Chacun de nos grands fanatiques de la « Guérison par l'Esprit » a groupé autour de lui des centaines de milliers d'individus ; chacun par ses actes et ses guérisons a ébranlé et secoué la conscience de son temps ; chacun a suscité dans la science des courants formidables. Chose fantastiques : à une époque où la médecine, grâce à une technique féeriquement perfectionnée, accomplit de véritables miracles, où elles a appris à observer, décomposer, mesurer, photographier, influencer et transformer les plus minuscules atomes et molécules de substance vivante, où toutes les autres sciences naturelles exactes la suivent et lui prêtent leur concours, où tout l'élément organique semble enfin dénué de mystère, à pareille époque une série de chercheurs indépendants démontrent l'inutilité dans beaucoup de cas de toutes ces connaissances. Ils prouvent publiquement et d'une façon irréfutable qu'aujourd'hui comme jadis on peut obtenir des guérisons rien que par des moyens psychiques et cela même dans des cas où l'admirable machinerie de la médecine universitaire a échoué.

    Your entire life is an ILLUSION: New test backs up theory that the world doesn’t exist until we look at it

        Quantum mechanics states reality doesn't exist until it's measured
        This means a particle's past behaviour changes based on what we see
        Experiment using an atom and laser beams has proven this to be true
        How the atom behaved depended on how it was measured at end of test

    The universe doesn't exist if we stop looking at it.
    This is according a famous theory in quantum mechanics which argues that a particle's past behaviour changes based on what we see.
    Now, scientists have performed a new experiment proving this theory to be true on the scale of atoms.
    The bizarre nature of reality as laid out by quantum theory has survived another test, with scientists performing a famous experiment and proving that reality does not exist until it is measured
     

    Your entire life is an ILLUSION


    The bizarre nature of reality as laid out by quantum theory has survived another test, with scientists performing a famous experiment and proving that reality does not exist until it is measured
    According to the rules of quantum mechanics, the boundary between the 'world out there' and our own subjective consciousness are blurred.

    HOW WAS IT DONE?
    The team first trapped a collection of helium atoms in a suspended state known as a Bose-Einstein condensate, and then ejected them until there was only a single atom left.
    The single atom was then dropped through a pair of laser beams, which formed a grating pattern that acted as crossroads in the same way a solid grating would scatter light.
    A second light grating to recombine the paths was randomly added, which led to constructive or destructive interference as if the atom had travelled both paths.
    When the second light grating was not added, no interference was seen as if the atom chose only one path.
    However, the random number determining whether the grating was added was only generated after the atom had passed through the crossroads.



    When physicists look at atoms or particles of light, what they see depends on how they have set up their experiment.
    To test this, physicists at the Australian National University recently conducted what is known as the John Wheeler's delayed-choice thought experiment.
    The experiment involves a moving object that is given the choice to act like a particle or a wave.
    Wheeler's experiment then asks - at which point does the object decide?
    Common sense says the object is either wave-like or particle-like, independent of how we measure it.
    But quantum physics predicts that whether you observe wave like behaviour or particle behaviour depends only on how it is actually measured at the end of its journey.
    This is exactly what the Australian team found.
    'It proves that measurement is everything. At the quantum level, reality does not exist if you are not looking at it,' said Associate Professor Andrew Truscott.
    Despite the apparent weirdness, the results confirm the validity of quantum theory.
    Quantum theory governs the world of the very small, and has enabled the development of many technologies such as LEDs, lasers and computer chips.
    The ANU reversed Wheeler's original concept of light beams being bounced by mirrors, and instead used atoms scattered by laser light.
    'Quantum physics predictions about interference seem odd enough when applied to light, which seems more like a wave,' said PhD student Roman Khakimov.
    'But to have done the experiment with atoms, which are complicated things that have mass and interact with electric fields and so on, adds to the weirdness.'

    When the second light grating was not added, no interference was seen as if the atom chose only one path.
    However, the random number determining whether the grating was added was only generated after the atom had passed through the crossroads.
    If you choose to believe that the atom really did take a particular path or paths then you have to accept that a future measurement is affecting the atom's past, said Truscott.
    'The atoms did not travel from A to B. It was only when they were measured at the end of the journey that their wave-like or particle-like behaviour was brought into existence,' he said.

    Perhaps this result and the strange world of quantum electrodynamics (QED) means that we are living in a simulation. This has been postulated by some scientists. The universe (multiverse?) turns out to be part of some alien experiment performed by beings we can never truly understand and for reasons we can never comprehend. No wonder people can never agree about the presence/absence of a deity.

    So if I close my eyes next time I receive my wage slip the tax will disappear and cease to exist, I think not?

    What about blind people then. How do they rationalise their existence.

    The world ceases to exist if you don't look at it? err the scientists said nothing of the sort! DM unable to convey an admittedly difficult concept but still....

    So if it's not actually there then where actually is it. And where actually am I. Thus if am am not here and you are not there.Regardless I'd rather be here than there and deffo here rather not here.I am the centre of my own universe and all you are just figments of my imagination. And thus I did and did not marry Jennfier Aniston just now. Interesting.

    You have it backwards when you said .. 'It proves that measurement is everything. At the quantum level, reality does not exist if you are not looking at it,' said Associate Professor Andrew Truscott. The Truth is exactly the opposite. Reality (the coin) always exists and you perceive reality (the faces) thru measurement. Remember the coin is the whole truth i.e. reality. A face doesn't make a coin. Cheers!

    The world is an image for our eyes to behold, and when our eyes engage the image, our minds invent little stories.

    Scientific proof that God exists? What else could have some sort of concious at the exact point of the big bang, maybe there has to be a god in existence before a universe can come into existence? ??

  • Le Principe Universel de toute chose, c'est l'Être.
    Ses existers ou attributs sont :
    L'Esprit. - La Vie. - La Substance.
    Ils ont pour coexisters :
    Le Temps. - Le Mouvement. - L'espace.
    L'Esprit dirige, la Vie agit, la Substance obéit.
    Le Temps détermine, le Mouvement transforme, l'Espace renferme.
    L'Esprit et le Temps sont attributs d'Existence.
    La Vie et le Mouvement sont attributs d'Action.
    La Substance et l'Espace sont attrbuts d'État.
    Ces attributs éternels de l'Être infini sont, pour les êtres finis, des sphères différentes d'existence, d'action, d'état ; car les êtres finis sont des Modes de la Vie dans l'Être Infini.
    L'Exister ou mode d'existence propre à chaque sphère des êtres finis, constitue leur Loi Suprême.
    Les Existers de l'Être varient dans toutes les Sphères de l'Infini :
    Dans l'Être où la Substance dominem la Matière est sensible, la Vie est faible, et l'Esprit presque nul ;
    Dans l'Être où la Vie s'élève, la Substance s'épure et l'Esprit agit ;
    Dans l'Être où l'Esprit domine, la Vie est activem la Substance est subtile et la Matière disparaît.
    L'homme émerge particulièrement de la Substance ; la Vie est pour lui le lien éternel de la Substance et de l'Esprit, de l'Espace et du Temps.
