New states of matter. Fake reality. Real silence.

Researchers have recently produced a “human scale” demonstration of a new phase of matter called quadrupole topological insulators (QTI) that was recently predicted using theoretical physics. These were the first experimental findings to validate this theory. The researchers reported their findings in the journal Nature.

The team’s work with QTIs was born out of the decade-old understanding of the properties of a class of materials called topological insulators (TI). “TIs are electrical insulators on the inside and conductors along their boundaries, and may hold great potential for helping build low-power, robust computers and devices, all defined at the atomic scale”, said mechanical science and engineering professor and senior investigator Gaurav Bahl.

The uncommon properties of TIs make them a special form of electronic matter. “Collections of electrons can form their own phases within materials. These can be familiar solid, liquid and gas phases like water, but they can also sometimes form more unusual phases like a TI”, said co-author and physics professor Taylor Hughes .

However, there are still many theoretical predictions that need to be confirmed regarding TIs. One such prediction was the existence of a new type of TI having an electrical property known as a quadrupole moment. “Electrons are single particles that carry charge in a material”, said physics graduate student Wladimir Benalcazar. “We found that electrons in crystals can collectively arrange to give rise not only to charge dipole units – that is, pairings of positive and negative charges – but also high-order multipoles in which four or eight charges are brought together into a unit. The simplest member of these higher-order classes are quadrupoles in which two positive and two negative charges are coupled”. (1)

We keep on discovering new types of particles.

We keep on discovering new dimensions.

We keep on discovering new states of matter.

We keep on breaking the mirror of reality into pieces.

And the more we discover, the more we come to a great revelation.

What is dead, cannot die. What is alive, will be alive forever.

You cannot discover new dimensions of nothing.

You can never discover new states of matter.

You cannot discover many types of anything.

You cannot dissolve existence into zero.

You cannot break anything into smaller parts.

Unless there was nothing there in the first place…

Fallen souls we are… Meddling with ghosts… Handling shadows… Stop seeing, if you want to start sensing you. There is nothing more to discover about yourself. There is no way of dissecting your experience. You cannot analyze it more. You already know everything or anything about you. You are real. You are the light of the cosmos. An inner light. Shedding its powerful beams to the depths of your existence.

Until you decide to shed the light outside.

And the shadows begin to appear…

Light crystals. Matter. Energy. Mind.

Researchers at Princeton University have begun crystallizing light as part of an effort to answer fundamental questions about the physics of matter.

The researchers are not shining light through crystal — they are transforming light into crystal. As part of an effort to develop exotic materials such as room-temperature superconductors, the researchers have locked together photons, the basic element of light, so that they become fixed in place. “It’s something that we have never seen before”, said Andrew Houck, an associate professor of electrical engineering and one of the researchers. “This is a new behavior for light”.

We see light as something special.
And yet it seems that it is not after all.

Everything is matter.
Matter is perceived energy.

Everything is mind.
Everything is us.

Everything is as it seems.
Everything is blessed…

Atheism turning into Religion via Consciousness…

For materialists around the world it is almost taken for granted that everything from physics to biology, including the mind, ultimately comes down to four fundamental concepts: matter and energy interacting in an arena of space and time. But there are skeptics who suspect we may be missing a crucial piece of the puzzle.

Since it was published in 2012, “Mind and Cosmos”, by the philosopher Thomas Nagel, is the book that has caused the most consternation. With his taunting subtitle — “Why the Materialist Neo-Darwinian Conception of Nature Is Almost Certainly False” — Dr. Nagel was rejecting the idea that there was nothing more to the universe than matter and physical forces. He also doubted that the laws of evolution, as currently conceived, could have produced something as remarkable as sentient life. That idea borders on anathema, and the book quickly met with a blistering counterattack. Steven Pinker, a Harvard psychologist, denounced it as “the shoddy reasoning of a once-great thinker”.

What makes “Mind and Cosmos” worth reading is that Dr. Nagel is an atheist, who rejects the creationist idea of an intelligent designer. The answers, he believes, may still be found through science, but only by expanding it further than it may be willing to go.

Science, Dr. Nagel proposes, might require another revolution: showing that mind, along with matter and energy, is “a fundamental principle of nature” — and that we live in a universe primed “to generate beings capable of comprehending it”. Rather than being a blind series of random mutations and adaptations, evolution would have a direction, maybe even a purpose.

“Above all”, he wrote, “I would like to extend the boundaries of what is not regarded as unthinkable, in light of how little we really understand about the world”.

Dr. Nagel is not alone in entertaining such ideas. While rejecting anything mystical, the biologist Stuart Kauffman has suggested that Darwinian theory must somehow be expanded to explain the emergence of complex, intelligent creatures. And David J. Chalmers, a philosopher, has called on scientists to seriously consider “panpsychism” — the idea that some kind of consciousness, however rudimentary, pervades the stuff of the universe. (1)

Harmonia Philosophica said it a long time ago: Consciousness will be the final frontier that will make science turn towards new ways of thinking.

What is immaterial by nature cannot be explained via material models.

Of course atheists will name it anyway they can in order to hide their intellectual defeat. But the point will be the same: God, in one form or another, is here. Among us. Call it “consciousness”, call it “panpsyhism”, call it “weird state of matter”. The result is the same.

We are luminous beings. Bond by the Force… Errr… I meant by the “mind”…
