‘I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration; I can humiliate or humour, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.’
– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
A programme on today’s radio 4 by Melvyn Bragg brought a play of ideas …
Neutrinos, the small, unseen spectators Wolfgang Pauli proposed in 1930, turned out to be the weak force that travels at near speed of light through the densest of materials …
I apologise for the crude simplification jumping over decades of research … Enrico Fermi developed the first theory of beta decay and coined the word ‘neutrino’ in 1934, while Cowan and Reines did an experiment in 1956 that eventually brought them a Nobel Prize.
Neutrinos are produced through sun-quakes, the nuclear reactions a sun produces, our sun included. There are billions of these particles passing through our bodies right now.
What if all the information circulating the universe was carried by neutrinos? In which case, consider Goethe’s conclusion – that we are the decisive elements – and the question – what do we invest our thoughts with? And what postulates do we leave for the next generation?
These invisible particles could be the medium recording information since the big bang (or the many big bangs, what do we know), and the medium for thoughts, transmitting anything from compulsive resentment to love. And depending on what wavelength we tune into, these weird particles could even be the medium for a timeless omnipresent spirit of guidance that allows freedom of choice …
Think also: akashic records, an ancient concept, and morphic fields, R. Sheldrake.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking, she’s nuts, ha, ha. But I’m not the only one …
One response to “… the decisive element …”
