I have many interests as you may or may not know. I’m a voracious reader and know just enough about everything to be dangerous. One of my latest areas of interest is quantum physics.
One area of quantum theory that has captured my focus lately is the focus of Dr. Masaru Emoto who wrote the book, "The Hidden Messages in Water." He’s the guy (a doctor of alternative medicine in fact) who discovered that water communicates with us. Really he posits that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. I know what you’re thinking, cause, well, I thought it too. This can’t be founded on any known science. I was wrong and so are you.
He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns when in a crystalized (frozen) state. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.
The idea is connected to quantum physics in so much as we don’t know shit about reality. In the case of water, words are affecting the reality of water. Which then begs the question of whether or not we can affect our reality simply by thinking of it, or more precisely, forming our own reality.
We, as humans, are 90% water so this theory should be of great interest to humans. If our thoughts can impact our reality, then doesn’t it stand to reason that positive thoughts create a positive reality and negative thoughts a negative reality? Negative self-perception is clearly harmful to our psyche and emotional state, and some indications tend to support the idea that negative thoughts can also harm our physical health. The question is whether or not just by thinking positively all the time would make you not only a better person to be around (clearly), but make you a healthier person.
New agey crap aside, this is a theory I can get behind and support.
