This is all completely and totally true… says I. And I should know (in my opinion)
Everything… as in EVERYTHING, is a wave!
YES! That’s right everything you know, and everything else. Even your body and what your brain thinks! It’s all a collection of waves.
Ocean waves – Light waves – Electromagnetic waves – Brain waves….
You hear about waves a lot but I believe there is nothing else
Atoms are mostly empty space and everything you touch and see is made from atoms so everything is mostly empty space. When you touch something you are not really touching it. The atoms in your finger get close to the atoms in the object but the atomic forces repel your finger. You get really close… but the atoms do not touch! When you look at something, what you are seeing is electromagnetic waves that were reflected by atoms in the “object” you are looking at.
Here’s the kicker…. (and as of now, totally my opinion)
Atoms are nothing more than waves!
I believe atoms are nothing more than multi-dimensional waves. They are standing waves because of our perspective as entities made of other standing waves
It’s all a matter of perspective! Imagine surfing on a light wave travelling the speed of light. The crest of the wave you are riding on seems to be standing still. You seem to be standing still and the light wave you are riding stretches out behind you… or is it in front of you? Maybe both!
Atoms are simply a combination of other-dimension waves that have locked together… some proton waves, a few neutron waves and a collection of electron waves. By our perspective these waves are moving right along with us so they appear to be something solid and grouped together (kind of). Normally these waves don’t like to mix and repel each other (like when you try to touch your finger atoms to coffee cup atoms) but under the right energetic conditions (fusion) those waves are forced to cross and lock together. Because where these waves collect together in “space” are surfing along with us, they appear like objects hanging in space.
When thinking about different dimensions… if you took a 3d nail and pounded it though 2d space. The 2d people who live in 2d space would see a mysterious floating 2d circle. If a 4d person puts a 4d nail through 3d space… well, the 3d people who live in 3d space (that would be us) will see a 3d circle floating in space (AKA a ball or globe!) If the 4d people shot a (tiny) high frequency 4d wave through 3d space, then it would be like a fuzzy ball hanging in 3d space.. doesn’t that describe an atom and it’s parts? Anyway, you can take my word for it.. or read this cool old book: Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions
You know what else….?? and this should blow your mind…. Gravity is also just waves. Well, more like waves playing on waves. Check out my next post!
