Light Holds The Biggest Secret Of All
« on: February 07, 2012, 07:41:48 AM »

Genesis 1:3 - And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.

I have chosen to start with a famous quote from the Bible for a very specific reason. Don’t worry, the purpose is not to preach or to promote any religion. Whether you are a religious person or not, the fact is that there are many truths in the Bible, and other holy books, such as the Koran (Quran). Where the truths of these holy books go wrong is where their texts are misinterpreted, something we as humans are very good at.

Many skeptics claim that it is impossible for light to have been created before the sun was created on the 4th day, as stated in the Bible (Genesis 1:14). Skeptics and scientists also claim that the Big Bang occurred first, before there was light. My theory is that the Big Bang happened because of light, and not the other way around. The Big Bang created gases and matter from light, which eventually formed stars (suns). A sun emits light, the same light of which it consists deep down at the sub-atomic level.

Light is truly the biggest secret out there.

Before I discuss the secret of light let’s examine some definitions of light:
[nbsp][nbsp]a. Something that makes vision possible.
[nbsp][nbsp]b. The sensation aroused by stimulation of the visual receptors.
[nbsp][nbsp]c. Electromagnetic radiation of any wavelength that travels in a vacuum with a speed of about 186,281 miles (300,000 kilometers) per second; specifically : such radiation that is visible to the human eye.
[nbsp][nbsp]d. Electromagnetic radiation that has a wavelength in the range from about 4,000 (violet) to about 7,700 (red) angstroms and may be perceived by the normal unaided human eye.
[nbsp][nbsp]e. Electromagnetic radiation of any wavelength.
[nbsp][nbsp]...and the list goes on...

The “light” described in the definitions above is really only the tip of the iceberg. What we are actually dealing with is “light waves”, and not light in its purest form.

Then what is light?

Simply put, light is everything. Light is energy. Light is the higher plane that encapsulates our Universe. The light we see should really be called “visible light”, which is only a tiny portion of light.

Everything in the Universe is made of light. Even the subatomic particles that make up atoms are made from light. Now that probably makes you ask: “How is it possible for light to be matter?” The answer can be derived from the apparent confusion amongst scientists who are wondering why light behaves like particles and waves at the same time. This dual particle/wave behaviour is the key to understanding it all. The source of everything is light. Light manifests itself in our physical Universe in two forms: waves and particles. Thus this strange duality.

During the Big Bang light waves “leaked” from the endless/infinite sea of light that encapsulates the 3-dimensional physical Universe. A certain percentage of these light waves “collapsed” and became the building blocks of protons, neutrons and electrons, called quarks. Let’s not discuss exactly how these light waves might have collapsed, not just yet anyway. I am currently working with a very good friend of mine, who is very knowledgeable on this subject, in determining exactly how this might have happened, and may still be happening today under the right conditions. Together we have come up with what we think will turn the world of Quantum physics upside down. And that’s all I’m going to say about it for now.

Technical Introduction

Ah, Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity (STR). It generalizes Galileo's principle of relativity—that all uniform motion is relative, and that there is no absolute and well-defined state of rest (no privileged reference frames)—from mechanics to all the laws of physics, including both the laws of mechanics and of electrodynamics, whatever they may be. Special relativity incorporates the principle that the speed of light is the same for all inertial observers regardless of the state of motion of the source.

Albert Einstein proposed mass–energy equivalence in 1905 in one of his Annus Mirabilis papers entitled "Does the inertia of a body depend upon its energy-content?" The equivalence is described by the famous equation:
    E = mc2
where E is energy, m is mass, and c is the speed of light in a vacuum.

The speed of light is so much larger than anything humans encounter that some of the effects predicted by relativity are initially counterintuitive:
  • Time dilation – the time lapse between two events is not invariant from one observer to another, but is dependent on the relative speeds of the observers' reference frames (e.g., the twin paradox which concerns a twin who flies off in a spaceship traveling near the speed of light and returns to discover that his or her twin sibling has aged much more).
  • Relativity of simultaneity – two events happening in two different locations that occur simultaneously in the reference frame of one inertial observer, may occur non-simultaneously in the reference frame of another inertial observer (lack of absolute simultaneity).
  • Lorentz contraction – the dimensions (e.g., length) of an object as measured by one observer may be smaller than the results of measurements of the same object made by another observer (e.g., the ladder paradox involves a long ladder traveling near the speed of light and being contained within a smaller garage).
  • Composition of velocities – velocities (and speeds) do not simply 'add', for example if a rocket is moving at 2⁄3 the speed of light relative to an observer, and the rocket fires a missile at 2⁄3 of the speed of light relative to the rocket, the missile does not exceed the speed of light relative to the observer. (In this example, the observer would see the missile travel with a speed of 12⁄13 the speed of light.)
  • Thomas rotation - the orientation of an object (i.e. the alignment of its axes with the observer's axes) may be different for different observers. Unlike other relativistic effects, this effect becomes quite significant at fairly low velocities as can be seen in the spin of moving particles.
  • Inertia and momentum – as an object's speed approaches the speed of light from an observer's point of view, its mass appears to increase thereby making it more and more difficult to accelerate it from within the observer's frame of reference.
  • Equivalence of mass and energy, E = mc2 – The energy content of an object at rest with mass m equals mc2. Conservation of energy implies that, in any reaction, a decrease of the sum of the masses of particles must be accompanied by an increase in kinetic energies of the particles after the reaction. Similarly, the mass of an object can be increased by taking in kinetic energies.

Back to reality

The preceding section may have been a bit too technical for most people, but it was necessary to prove my point that there is something very strange, yet intriguing about light. There is a very good reason that it seems to defy all logic when it comes to the laws of physics, at least as we know it.

As one approaches the speed of light time slows down to almost zero. If it were possible to reach the speed of light there should theoretically be no such thing as time. Therefore time only exists in the physical Universe we live in.

Another strange phenomena is that the closer you get to the speed of light the more mass you gain... so if you get infinitely close to that speed then you have infinite mass. Yet, scientists claim that for something to go light speed, its (rest) mass must be 0. So, at almost the speed of light you almost have infinite mass, but when you reach light speed (which is not possible), you suddenly have no mass!

The speed of light is therefore a magical threshold or boundary. It is what separates the two planes, i.e. the physical and non-physical (metaphysical), from one another.

The speed of light may very well be the “membrane” that separates the two levels. The weird  thing about this membrane is that it spans and fills the entire physical Universe at all levels, every square millimeter, down to the smallest measurable distance (Planck).

Light waves themselves may be a reflection of this membrane, or they may very well be the membrane itself. Anything slower than light finds itself in the physical Universe, and anything “faster” than light becomes part of the Infinite Metaphysical Universe. Although they say that nothing can go faster than light it only applies to physical objects. When you’re on the other side you are no longer a physical object, so the rule does not apply. Besides, you do not travel or move on the other side... you are part of it. The other side does not have physical characteristics such as mass, time or distance.

The big question is whether you will have self consciousness on the other side, or will you be part of a collective consciousness? I think that it will be a combination of both. You will have your own inner-self, but you will also be part of everyone else’s inner-self. Strange to imagine, but only because we live in a 3-dimensional physical world at the moment, and we can only relate to it in as far as what we’ve experienced so far. In order to understand “the other side” one has to let go of what makes sense in this World. To try and compare it with anything on “our side” would be short-sighted and completely ignorant.

What happens to us when we die?

Now there’s a question that has haunted the human race since the dawn of man. Most people want to believe that there is life after death. Most religions support the fact that there is an afterlife, despite the fact that they mostly disagree with what exactly the afterlife is and how it works.

Here is an interesting possibility: When your physical body dies your soul (or self-consciousness) leaves the body as a pure energy form and accelerates to the speed of light... and beyond. You are then part of the light, or collective consciousness. The rules that apply on that side may very well be what various religions proclaim. One cannot discard any of these as a possibility. But, there are many different interpretations, which will eventually result in only one being right, or the closest to being right. Some may be completely wrong. Or, there is a possibility that they all might be wrong.

Many people who’ve had near-death experiences refer to a broad range of personal experiences, encompassing multiple possible sensations including detachment from the body; feelings of levitation; extreme fear; total serenity, security, or warmth; the experience of absolute dissolution; and the presence of bright light.

The presence of light is what excites me. Where does this “light” come from? Surely there is not a sun or light bulbs in heaven. The light does not emanate from anything. It is just there. Sounds like an infinite sea of light to me...

Final thoughts

There may be a higher level than light. Maybe that level will be “Heaven”, or some sort of spiritual or divine level. It is also possible that light is the highest/ultimate level, and that the spiritual/divine level is an integral part of it. But these speculations will lead to a whole new discussion, best left for another time.
