I'm sure you've thought to yourself, "Why am I here and what is my purpose?" It's a question that we've all pondered at one point or another in our lives and no one really seems to have the answer. And maybe that's because . . . the possibilities are endless. Simply thinking about your purpose may ultimately help you to not only conceive it, but to manifest it once you have.
There's a theory in the realm of quantum physics that is called "downward causation." One of the pioneers of this scientific theory is Dr. Amit Goswami, Professor of physics at the Institute of Theoretical Sciences at the University of Oregon. Dr. Goswami asked himself, "What converts possibility into actuality?" After pondering and researching for many years, Dr. Goswami concluded that consciousness is the ground of all creation and existence. In other words, our universe is "self-aware" - and consciousness manifests our physical reality. The new paradigm is called "monistic idealism" and with it, the paradoxes of quantum physics, free will, choice, unconsciousness, creativity and spiritual growth are all explainable.
So let's take a look at downward causation, otherwise known as the neurology of "free will." Free will is the given ability to manifest our will, our intention, into being - into "actuality."
Psalm 82: 6 says, "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High."
Humans are made of subatomic particles and in quantum physics, scientists have surprisingly discovered that subatomic particles behave erratically. They bounce and shift without pattern - as if they are awaiting an intention to instruct them to become a manifestation. And sure enough, that's what scientists have discovered. They have discovered that when viewing subatomic particles, it is utterly impossible to pinpoint the location of a sub atomic atom. As it turns out, subatomic particles are able to be in more than one place at one time. They do not exist in our universe alone but rather it seems that they flutter in and out of an infinite number of parallel universes. Subatomic particles await instruction.
Subatomic particles wait for "intention" to be placed upon them before manifesting into actuality.
Scientists have found that, after a few double blind slit tests using sub-atomic particles as subjects, it was discovered they could change from particles to wave form then back again. These particles could leave our dimension then pop right back into it again. Scientists also found that these sub-atomic particles were changing from particles to wave form, depending on the intention of the scientists placed upon it. Even more surprising, they discovered that they could not remove themselves from the equation while testing the particles. The scientists themselves, through observation, influenced the particles. By placing their "intention" upon them, they had a direct effect on the end result.
In other words, it was the "intention" or observation of the scientists that directly influenced the outcome:
The state of possibilities are endless for quantum particles - until we "observe" or "intend" that they are only in one specific state.
Your intention (observation, consciousness) directly chooses the outcome for subatomic particles to manifest into.
Now mind you, folks, we are all made of subatomic particles so this applies to us as human beings. This is what spiritualists have been teaching for years and it also lends credence to the theory of the Law of Attraction. The theory that the universe has a check and balance system, yin and yang or karma, if you like, and that like attracts like.
If you think it, you can be it.
Your intention (thought) has a direct influence over your life because you are in constant control of the subatomic particles and you decide what they manifest into. This falls in line with Dr. Goswami's studies and determination of downward causation.
Downward causation is when the direction of casual "influence" extends from "higher" levels of reality down to "lower" levels of reality.
The brain controls its atoms and molecules, rather than the atoms and molecules controlling the brain. Downward causation is thus also called "macrocausation", because if it exists, then macroscopic entities have causal powers over the atoms they are made of. Basically, what this means is that matter is manifested through a higher level - thought and intention.
We create matter. Matter does not create us.
It's a "top-down" theory, not a "bottom-up" one. There is an online version of a book titled, "Downward Causation and the Neurobiology of Free Will." Each chapter summary is free to preview and explore for thought provocation. You can also purchase entire chapters in PDF form if you choose. So you see, your life is what you make it. Your quality of life is what you make it. It is so very important to keep your thoughts clear and your intention pure. Because what you think of, is what you will manifest into being.
Where you are and what you are experiencing today, is the direct result of your previous thoughts and intentions. Whether you realize it or not.
If you sit around all day long thinking, "Oh my, I have so much debt." Then "debt" is what you are ordering the universe to manifest for you. You are subconsciously ordering your subatomic particles to manifest into debt for you. Your perspective and your subconscious daily thoughts directly influence your life and your existence. Your subconscious thoughts count the most, so learn to consciously control them.
The sooner you realize this and accept it, the better your life can become. So, if you're pondering what your purpose is, keep doing so and you may be able to better clarify it and watch it manifest itself into being.
One of the greatest things that you can do for yourself - is to allow yourself some quiet time to think.
