"At a deeper level, there is really no boundary between ourselves and everything else in the world... We are all constantly sharing portions of our energy fields, so all of us, at the quantum level, at the level of your minds and our "selves" are all connected."

Deepak Chopra

About the Paintings

"...Everything consists of information and energy. This is called the quantum domain. Everything at this level is insubstantial, meaning that it cannot be touched or perceived by any of the five senses...

 


... One of the first science lessons taught in school is that every solid object is made up of molecules, and molecules are made up of even smaller units called atoms. We come to understand that this seemingly solid chair we are sitting on is made up of atoms so small that they cannot be seen without the aid of a powerful microscope. Later in the lesson we learn that the tiny atoms are made up of subatomic particles, which have no solidity at all. They are, quite literally, packets or waves of information and energy. This means that...the chair you are sitting in is nothing but energy and information.

 

This concept can be difficult to grasp at first. How can invisible waves of energy and information be experienced as a solid object? The answer is that the events in the quantum domain occur at the speed of light, and at that speed our senses simply cannot process everything that contributes to our perceptual experience. We perceive objects as being different than the next because energy waves contain different kinds of information, which are determined by the frequency or vibration of those energy waves...


At the quantum level, the various chunks of energy fields vibrating at different frequencies that we perceive as solid objects are all part of a collective energy field. If we were capable of perceiving everything that was happening at the quantum level, we would see that we are all part of a great "energy soup," and everything- each one of us and all the objects in the physical domain - is just a cluster of energy floating in this energy soup. At any given moment your energy field will come into contact with and affect everyone else's energy field, and each one of us responds in some way to that experience. We are all expressions of this communal energy and information. Sometimes we can actually feel this connectedness. This sensation is usually very subtle, but on occasion it becomes more tangible. Most of us have had the experience of walking into a room and sensing "tension so thick you could cut it with a knife," or of being in a church or holy shrine and being engulfed by a sense of peace. That is the collective energy of the environment mingling with your own energy, which you register on some level...

 

...At a deeper level, there is really no boundary between ourselves and everything else in the world... We are all constantly sharing portions of our energy fields, so all of us, at the quantum level, at the level of your minds and our "selves" are all connected."
