During the 20th century, there were two major transformations in the field of physics. The first was Einstein's general theory of relativity, and the second was the quantum theory. Neil Bohr and Max Plank are known to be the fathers of "quantum", which means discrete packets of energy. According to Max Plank, all matter originates and exists only by force. We must assume that behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind.
Understanding Quantum Physics
Quantum physics is concerned with the investigation of subatomic particles, which are the building blocks of the universe. The nature of it is waves. As per quantum physics, there is no difference between energy and matter. Quantum physics is since consciousness is the cause of this universe, not matter. Whereas science is based on the idea that everything is made of matter. Classical physics does not work on subatomic particles; here, matter creates consciousness.
Since they are difficult to detect on a materialistic level, it is difficult for people to understand this phenomenon. As humans, we are used to accepting materialism so dogmatically that we fail to consider such bizarre possibilities, thinking they are other-worldly.
All systems in the human being, from the atomic to the molecular level, are constantly in motion. Quantum physics describes physical phenomena normally hidden at a subatomic level.
How can Quantum Physics help us?
The book "The Quantum Psychiatrist" by Dr. Dona Biswas, talks about the new paradigm shift in the field of psychiatry based on the principle of quantum physics, which acknowledges our multidimensional existence. She also explains a variety of cutting-edge solutions to achieve good mental health, which are simple and little-known. In her book, she addresses the concern that one of the vexing questions faced by scientists today is how matter can transform into thought. She says the only theoretical field that can dare answer these questions is quantum physics.
One of the intriguing possibilities that quantum physics has recognised from what the ancient sages and spiritual masters have been teaching for generations about consciousness is nothing but spiritual science. Both quantum physics and spirituality have common roots in consciousness. This ancient Vedic knowledge is called the "Book of Science" by the Indians. One of the popularly used terms in modern science called the "Placebo effect" is a living example of how the conscious mind creates healing through just a positive belief that they are being given the right treatment, even if that treatment was nothing but sugar pills. Quantum physicist Amit Goswami says if any field needs integration, it is medicine and healing.
Quantum physics works on the principle that all moving objects are not just matter but energy. This includes humans. If we are all energy along with matter, how can mental illness be solely treated on a physical level? It will need energy healing too. They say the invention of quantum physics will reduce the gap between scientific and spiritual logic. Hopefully, it will reduce the gap between the fields of psychiatry and psychology, as psychiatry is the study of mental illness and psychology is the science of consciousness. Soon, quantum physics might not only be the future of science but also the key to knowing existential questions like life, death, consciousness, and spirituality in a more convincing manner. The real issue is not about the debates between science and spirituality but how the unison of both can be beneficial to all the human race. In the long run, that is the question. Something you can't see can only be experienced.
And something that can be experienced is unexplainable.
Do you sense some similarities in the understanding of mental illness and quantum physics? What are your opinions on quantum physics? Do you think it might open gates for more integrative and holistic approaches in the field of mental wellness?
