Derived from the Greek words μετά metá, meaning "beyond", "upon" or "after" and φυσικά physiká, meaning "physics". It is the ability to acknowledge things undetectable by the physical sense.
Metaphysics includes many subjects within Science, Spirituality, Angels, Quantum Physics, Mysticism, Consciousness, Magick, Spirits, Law of Attraction and many more subcategories containing unexplained, undetectable dimensions within our reality and beyond.
In the conscious evolution, metaphysics has taken its place as the most comprehensive and most effective means of gaining knowledge and understanding about the true nature of the physical Universe.
The fundamental problem with Quantum Mechanics is that it was never intended to be permanent. It was a quick-fix solution to a seemingly unsolvable situation. It was a mathematical cure for a real-life pain. Which, in-and-of-itself, is no call for concern. If it works use it, right? Thing is, we humans need to understand WHY something works. We are not satisfied with mere results. In fact, when it comes to most things we actually tend to be more interested in the why than the how. The only reason you are probably even reading this article is not because you want to learn ways to use Quantum Mechanics. It's because you want to understand what Quantum Mechanics is all about. Even our concept of justice is based on this. The amount of punishment meted is based more on the intention behind the crime than the manner in which the crime was actually committed. Which is fine.
There is something truly unique about modern science. Unlike the work achieved by its forefathers, most modern scientific theories are based entirely on suppositions made through math, which is actually quite shocking when you realize science is supposed to be anything but theoretical. Even the rules of gravity and electricity, two "invisible" things, had ways of being tested and proven in the real world. We now have a Law of Gravity and Four Laws of Electromagnetism because as ethereal as these two things are, they're nonetheless testable. Science, at its core, demands this. It lives and breathes off of controlled objective analysis. Without an experiment you might as well label it philosophy or mysticism because science is only science if the hypothesis presented can be experimented on. Period. No discussion. End of story.
Before calling the stars of Quantum Mechanics onto the stage, there's one more player we must put in the spotlight first. He is probably the least known, greatest scientific thinker of all time, and in the architecture of physics stands as the most significant structure you'll find between Newton and Einstein, equal to both in contributions and visionary thinking. His life, unfortunately, was cut short by his own hand. Some say it was the disdain his theories received from colleagues which drew the ultimate blow. Others proclaim it merely the final act of a man at constant battle with depression. Either way both his contemporaries and history have yet to give him the true honors he deserves. His name is Ludwig Boltzmann.
The first time I truly encountered Quantum Mechanics was when I signed up for a class at university entitled "The Philosophical Problems of Quantum Physics". The professor was a voracious chain-smoker who commuted every day from Cambridge, Mass., around seventy-five miles away. He also said "okay" an average of five times a minute. I know because I timed him.
Now, how is this of any use to you? What does this have to do with anything? Well, in the world we live our lives and perform our daily tasks in, this information is absolutely useless unless you're collecting anecdotes of my college years, which I doubt you are. On a quantum level, however, what I just shared is as relevant to you and who you are as your very own heart-beat is. You see, as we divide our world down to the smallest of orts - as we go beyond the reaches of even the most powerful of microscopes - as we enter "the quantum world" one fact grows louder and clearer with every step. Everything in the entire universe is connected. There is no finite clearly defined separation between any two things. Even when electrons split away from each other and travel to opposite ends of the galaxy, they still communicate with one other instantly, something which pissed Einstein off to no end. He called it "spooky action at a distance", a polite way of saying "I think it's a load of bull s%#t", but... it's true. The entire physical world is absolutely, inextricably, unconditionally connected, something Taoist monks and Persian mystics have been saying for eons, and finally, in the early years of the 20th century, something modern science was beginning to prove.
