“If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.” – Niels Bohr.
I must confess I just ran across this amazing french physicist, Jean-Pierre Garnier Malet, father of the Doubling Time Theory, and I can assure you it has summarized perfectly a lot of the theories that comprise quantum mysticism, giving me the perfect excuse to speak about it.
In 1988, Malet discovered that time can double itself. Or in his own words, “the doubling of time is actually the doubling of the perception of time.” His discovery was endorsed in 2006 by the american scientific magazine American Institute of Physics of New York. This amazing discovery not only permits us explain and apply it to the planetary spheres, but also to human thoughts and life in general.
Malet affirms that not only can time double itself, but also us, human beings, in what he calls our “quantum double” or “quantum self”. In his theory, human beings are also energy centers that can project themselves into the future. His theory relies upon the basis that in each given second of conscious experience, there is an infinite number of other unconscious possibilities not manifesting themselves right now. Between two perceptible moments, our brain only grasps intermittent images leaving behind an imperceptible one in between.
As he sees it, we can use this in our favor to release suffering, as we unconsciously always receive a certain amount of information from the history of the future possibilities, and apply it to the present instant.
The phenomenon of splitting time, as a result, gives us the man who lives in the real time and the man who lives in the quantum time; an imperceptible time with several potential states: the best one is stored and transmitted to the real time. There is an exchange of information between the present self, and the quantum self, that permits us anticipate the present through the memory of the future.
Thoughts are energy, they move energy in time and space. How to apply this in our everyday lives? For Malet that is simple and he summarizes it like this: “Do not think of others in a way you don’t want them to think about you.”
Does this sound familiar? To me it did. Suddenly all that information in my head about Buddhism, Vedanta, Tantra, the study of ancient cultures and civilizations, and the ancient sacred texts came to my mind. They all say the same thing, again and again. Buddha’s teaching resounding in my head; “what you think, you become.”
It is not new that quantum mechanics is slowly proving ancient teachings to be correct. Even David Bohm, the american theoretical physicist, was deeply influenced by Jiddu Krishnamurti. In On Creativity, he wrote of Krishnamurti, “I got to know Krishnamurti in the early sixties. I became interested around that time in understanding the whole thing more deeply. I felt that he was suggesting that it is possible for a human being to have some kind of contact with this whole. I don’t think he would want to use ‘God’ because of its limited associations.” Also, in his book My view of the world, Shrödinger outlined his mystical and metaphysical view as derived from Hindu Vedanta philosophy. And there are infinite examples of this all around if you look for them.
And this brings us directly to quantum mysticism, term that emerged from the founders of quantum theory and described as the mystical interpretations of quantum physics. But as usual, not included as a scientific, empirical branch of Science.
I always thought that people were really impatient when it comes to science. They want science to explain every single detail of their surroundings, and of their own experiences, and they want it now, in their own lifetime span. It is as if they don’t trust something to exist, if it is not empirically proven in a laboratory. Understanding, knowledge, and true wisdom, can only come from respect to one’s own thoughts and feelings. How else? There is no absolute truth, there is not even an absolute reality, only pieces that each of us use to create our own puzzles of life.
I encourage you to investigate, to research, to read and learn, and most importantly, to experience life in its fullest potential. I encourage you to not believe anything of it if it doesn’t feel right for you. Find what does, or make it up! Every person has his or her own path, and none of them can ever be wrong.
One last recommendation if you liked Garnier Malet’s Doubling Time Theory. Please watch the movie Mr. Nobody, by director Jaco Van Dormael.
