According to Wikipedia the definition is: "a scalar physical quantity, an attribute of objects and systems that is conserved in nature. In physics textbooks energy is often defined as the ability to do work or to generate heat."
"Conserved in nature" would also mean conserved in the universe. Nature is part of the universe.
Science shows us that everything is made up of energy. The so-called empty vacuum is not empty. It is filled with energy. Einstein said that matter is an illusion. Energy is the building block of all matter. The same energy that composes your flesh is the same one that composes the makings of an ant or the trees outside. We are all made of the same stuff. It is constantly flowing, changing form all the time, permeating everything.
Everything in this universe is made up of energy. It is just present in different forms and shapes.
So are we then all part of One-Energy? And can this be dated back to the explosion of the Big Bang? Was all matter entangled at the time of the explosion? Is this where we came from?
Is this then the fabric of the universe?
The book The Paradox of Creation covers a lot more about this topic.
In the movie "The Thunderbolts of the Gods" they explain how this might be true.
Science is trying to understand what is really at this Planck Scale level and some say that this invisible connection is consciousness, a universal consciousness which we are all part of. Science want to solve this mystery and understand it all, but according to Max Planck this will not be possible.
"Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are... part of the mystery that we are trying to solve"
We cannot be an observer isolating us from the universe in our analysis of it all - simple because we are part of it all.
This is often referred to as the:
The double slit experiment shown in the movie What the bleep do we know is trying to explain the Copenhagen Interpretation.
In addition to the Copenhagen Interpretation there are two other popular explanations for the behaviour of quantum particles:The Many-Worlds Interpretation and The Penrose Interpretation
The human body is made of tissue and organs and the tissue and organs are made up of trillions (millions of millions) of cells. No-one knows for sure how many there are. Each of these cells in our body contain a smaller substructures called organelles ("Little organs"), each of which performs a different task related to the purpose and function of the cell.
Blood cells have a different task than skin-cells which have a different task than the brain cells and so on, but they are all necessary to make the body work. In the anatomy of the cells we find many "little organs" like the Cell Membrane , the Nucleus, Cytoplasm, the Endoplasmic Reticulum, the Golgi bodies, the Mitochondrion to mention a few.
So our human body is filled with cells containing energy. In addition each cell are made up of molecules and these molecules are made up of atoms with protons, neutrons and electrons. What are the atoms made of? Sub-atomic particles. And these sub-atomic particles are pure energy. Hence our body is one big piece of energy and so is everything else in this great universe.
If all of our bodies are energy and everything around us is energy are we then connected with each other and everything around us? If this is the case we are entangled and everything you do - how you behave and how you think and feel will be vibrating into this field of energy - this sea of energy. Hence it is affecting everyone in it - either directly or indirectly.
If we take this one step further it would mean that the way you and I think and feel can change the world for the better. Our vibrating, positive energy can influence those around us.
Thoughts cause ripples in this sea of energy we live in. A shift on one part of that massive field of energy ripples on and causes shifts in the parts next to it and they cause shifts in the parts next to them and that ripple goes on forever.
Because you are part of that universe, the ripples comes back to you and give you back a taste of similar essence. You cause a change in the energy field around and in you, and it ripples, touching everything. And everything of course ripples back in reaction, sending it back to you, all multiplied.
If you are sending out positive and good vibrations, reflecting your true emotions and feelings, the "boomerang" will come back to you with positive events and positive "coincidences". The same goes for emotions and thoughts of anger and hate. The "boomerang" will catch up with you sooner or later and give you a negative experience or event.
Every thought or action has an effect or consequence. The nature of that effect depends upon the nature of the cause. If the cause is "good", the effect will be "good". If the cause comes from negative thoughts or evil, the results will be equally negative or evil.
The Law of Cause and Effect states:
As part of this sea of energy we must realize that the way we think and feel is causing a ripple in this universal ocean and it effects everything around us. Our family, friends, people in our local community, people in our country and everyone in the WORLD.
In his book Rising out of Chaos Simon Peter Fuller also mention the Law of Cause and Effect.
"We are totally responsible for our every thought, word and deed while on Earth, and karma, both positive and negative, ensures that we rebalance all the energy or matter (so-called sin) we have ever disturbed".
The most potent form of energy is thought. Thought-waves are cosmic waves that penetrates all time and space.
Hence what we think has a great impact on everything in this universe. So just by committing to think and feel in a positive way will make a shift in the universe and our world will benefit.If everyone on earth starts to think,behave and feel positive we will make our world a place of peace.
The scientists behind the project are looking into the correlation between peoples intentions and emotions and the output on 65 random number generators placed around the world.
In other words the purpose is to examine subtle correlations that reflect the presence and activity of consciousness in the world. What happens when millions of us share intentions and emotions?
They have recorded correlations when global events occur like the funeral of Princess Diana and 9-11. Both these events made a profound impact on the random number generator outcome.
For 9-11 they actually got a significant reading BEFORE the event occurred indicating that we - the people around the world - collectively KNEW that this was going to happen somehow.
Our collective consciousness will actually have an influence on the outcome of these random number generators. This is implying that the way we think and feel is really important since it will start a chain of reaction - a ripple in this "universal ocean of energy" which we are all part of.
