Matter is not solid and we are much more than what we perceive ourselves to be
We perceive our world as physical, material, solid. But quantum physics suggests it is really not so. In fact it is far from it. Nobel Prize winner (among other scientists around the world) NielsBohr, a Danish Physicist, gave us significant contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum theory.
“If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet. Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” – Niels Bohr
At the beginning of the 20th century, physicists started to research the relationship between energy and the structure of matter. The outcome of their studies was the realization that matter is nothing but an illusion. Scientists began thus to recognize that energy is what the Universe is made out of.
“Despite the unrivaled empirical success of quantum theory, the very suggestion that it may be literally true as a description of nature is still greeted with cynicism, incomprehension and even anger.” (T. Folger, “Quantum Shmantum”; Discover 22:37-43, 2001)
Quantum physicists discovered that vortices of energy are what atoms are made up (not solid matter). In their spinning and vibrating, they are radiating their own unique energy signature. So … we are beings of energy and vibration, too, radiating our own unique energy signature.
If we observed the composition of an atom with a microscope we would see an invisible vortex, like a tornado, with a number of infinitely small energy vortices called quarks and photons. They build the structure of the atom. Focusing closer and closer the structure of the atom, we would see nothing but a physical void.
The atom has no physical structure and we are made of atoms too, so we have no physical structure, too. Atoms are not tangible matter.
