Our “Virtual” Reality

Is light a particle or a wave? It would appear that the answer is in the eye of the beholder. Light alters between Particle and Wave when observed up close.  Being that light is one of the most basic measuring tools we have (Light-speed) , how much does this say about our ability to understand Space/Time.  There is no way to unobserve, and what of other observers?  The Uncertainty Principle alerts us to the hard fact that we just can’t accurately measure our Universe.
Does a tree falling in the woods make a sound if no-one is there to hear it?  I’ll do you one better.  Is there even a tree to fall if I, the observer aren’t around?  When I close my eyes, what happens to the Universe?  It sounds like such a simple question, but Probability Waves allow for Infinite possibilities.
Quantum Mechanics and Relativistic Physics show that what happens on the Micro level can be quite different then the Macro level.
For all I know- My “spirit” is an electrical charge or wavelength, and this reality is merely a virtual manifestation of that spirits greatest fears and desires.   Or perhaps the whole of the Universe one Great Organism.  Growing and expanding like a Galactic cell dividing.  Or could it be that we re all just an afterthought or dream to some vastly greater Being.
For now we don’t know.  But I sense that Science and Religion will soon merge into something truly awe-inspiring.  Once we understand that our spirits and the Universe are one entity and that we can express both through Math, Music, and Art, our world will truly be on the path to Galactic Citizenship.

    Perhaps particle is the 0 and the wave 1? Perhaps when this duality ceases (wave-particle duality) Creativity/Creation/Lifespark (Phi)?

    What do you think Light is, by the way?

    Enjoyed reading this!

    Light is energy. Think of our 3 dimensional world as a 1 dimensional guitar string. After I pluck the guitar string the vibrations would be like light in our world.

    Very insightful – thanks
    Great example – But who or what does the Plucking? 🙂
