Why Study Quantum Physics -- Quantum Physics and Life (achieving health, wealth, and happiness)
The only answer you need to the question, "why study quantum physics?" is because you can learn how to consciously create your reality. Quantum physics is the only science that takes you (as the observer) into consideration. It is, in my opinion, the most empowering science.
When you apply the theories of quantum physics to your life, you will experience health, wealth, and happiness. Quantum physics teaches us that our observations bring the world into existence and therefore provides us with the opportunity to change both us and the world.
Your reality is in the form of possiblities laying out in front of you. Those possibilities remain as such, awaiting consciousness to choose from among them and bring the actual events into experience. This is what you are doing on a constant basis. Even right now, you are choosing the event of reading this, out of the infinite possiblities of things you could be doing right now. The important thing, that you should realize, is that you choose!
Many quantum physicists explain that we choose our reality, through our thoughts. The best scientific experiment done on this was what Dr. Emoto did with water. If you don't already know, he developed a technique using a very powerful microscope in a very cold room along with high-speed photography, to photograph newly formed crystals of frozen water samples. With this technology, Dr. Emoto then produced different focused intentions through written and spoken words and literally presented it to the same water samples, the water appeared to "change its expression".
Dr. Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.
More scientific evidence of the power of thoughts in creating reality comes from a recent study done at Harvard by Ellen Langer and Rebecca Levy. They compared memory loss of elderly people from different cultures. Their findings were that Americans, who live in a culture that fears old age and believes that our powers decline as we age, had substantial memory loss. Compared to elderly Chinese, whose culture holds older people in high esteem, showed almost no memory loss.
As you can see, our beliefs and ideas that we take for granted are constantly affecting our reality.
To be able to use quantum physics to better your life, which is the best reason why you should study quantum physics, you must realize that you do create your own reality. This puts you in a point of power. From here, you must simply think thoughts that will attract whatever it is that you want from life (health, wealth, and happiness).
