Intentions, thoughts, quantum physics and all that...

Saw an excellent and exceedingly weird film at the weekend called what the bleep do we know. It's a phillosophical film and talks a lot about quantum physics, which can be confusing, weird and extremely mind boggling! One of the things that really grabbed MY attention in this film was the studies of a Japanese man called Dr Emoto. Dr Emoto has taken micropscopic pictures of water, but with a difference. What has put Dr. Emoto at the forefront of the study of water is his proof that thoughts and feelings affect physical reality. By producing different focused intentions through written and spoken words and music and presenting it to the same water samples, the water appears to "change its expression". In other words at a microscopic level the struture of the water changes as you can see from his photos.

These photos are so weird and amazing, you could easily believe that they are a hoax like the fairy and UFO pictures of the past. But if they ARE real, what are the implications. It means that we should be able to physically change ourselves through thoughts and intention. Does this mean that we all have the capacity to cure ourselves? to make ourselves happy or even to bring about world peace. Maybe, if enough of us practiced it and had the same intentions and of course truly and wholeheartedly meant it. Because as far as we know water cannot think, so when those good thoughts/intentions were focused on it in Dr Emotos experiments, it did not have a little inner voice contradicting them, or criticising itself as most humans do.

It would seem that the conclusion of this is that humans are lacking in consistency and faith. Most of us do have good intentions but we also have an inner critic and saboteur. Were we to miraculously to lose that then our potential might be limitless. Hmm something to ponder on...for myself I am sending love and good thoughts to myself every night now before I go to sleep, and only time will tell if that will make a difference to me in the long term.
