**Quantum Mechanics And You**

**by Rich Fiori**

We see the term “quantum” used more and more. We get an
intuitive sense of what that means as some very small packets of energy that
make up our universe. Let’s add some depth to that understanding.

Chemistry

On a basic level, we and everything around us exhibit
chemical properties. Our bodies are chemical factories fueled by electrical and
magnetic pulses. In the chemical world, everything revolves around valence
electrons. Valence electrons occupy the space around atomic nuclei and are
capable of forming bonds with other atoms.

A specific example is water, composed of hydrogen (H) and
oxygen (O). It is the valence electrons that bonds them together to create
water (H2O). There is a dynamic balancing going on here. The reaction goes both
ways at the same time. Oxygen has eight electrons occupying the space around
the nucleus, two of which are valence electrons. Hydrogen has a single electron
and it is a valence electron. In order to have an equitable bonding based on
valence electrons, it will take two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom to
create a molecule of water (simple arithmetic). The simplified equation looks
something like this: 2H + O2 ==> 2H2O. Through the process of electrolysis,
the reaction goes the opposite direction, 2H2O ==> 2H + O2.

There are several components of these reactions to consider.
First, there has to be a conservation of energy (energy is gained on one side
and an equal amount is lost on the other). Second, there must be a discreet
amount of energy supplied, called a quantum of energy, before an electron is
excited enough to react with and bond to another atom. In this case, there are
no electrons surrounding the two hydrogen atoms called ions, which is written
H+. And two valence electrons surrounding the oxygen atom, written O-. These
are all just shorthand methods of communicating the dynamics of a chemical
reaction.

The salient point here is the amount of energy needed to
complete the reaction. What scientists (Niels Bohr, Erwin Schrodinger, and
Werner Heisenberg) discovered was there is a discreet amount of measurable
(Schrodinger equation) energy needed to catalyze the reaction. Less energy than
the exact amount needed and there is no reaction, more energy than needed and
some is unused. The measured discreet amount is a quantum of energy. Moreover,
electrons can reach several excited states called energy levels, which
correspond with what’s called principal quantum numbers (1, 2, 3, . . .). Each
higher level (larger quantum number) has the electron(s) exhibiting orbitals further
from the nucleus. It gets more complicated based on an array of factors but
this is the basic mechanism.

The Observable World

This is completely different than observable matter that can
absorb (endothermic) or give off (exothermic) any amount of energy. This leads
to the question: What’s the connection between the quantum world and the
observable world.

The quantum world is infinitesimally small by comparison to
the observable world something on the order of 1023 times smaller (that’s about
10000000000000000000000 times smaller; see Avogadro). In a sense, the quantum
world is digital; following discrete quantum number energy conservation. The
quantum world composes the observable world. This means that there is a law of
averages that takes place between the two worlds.

For example, suppose it’s 30 degrees centigrade (86
Fahrenheit) and the temperature is gradually rising. At the quantum level this
means there is a subset of the total number of molecules that are digitally
excited (their principal quantum number is getting larger) by absorbing more
infrared photons (heat) and then in turn reacting with the sensing devices to
indicate the temperature is rising. Because different types of molecules absorb
and give off heat at different rates, the sum of all absorptions and conductions
represents the temperature at any given time and place.

What we feel as the temperature gradually rising is actually
a digital average molecular energy absorption trending upwards. From this
perspective, the universe is digital and countable; to be more precise
mathematically, countably finite. This means that every part of space-time has
a quantum energy packet associated with it, which in fact is the definition of
that location in time; i.e. no quantum energy packet, no point in time.

The Mathematics

The quantum world energy transfer in this context only deals
with whole numbers. This is proven from the work done by Max Planck and denoted
by the Planck Constant. This Constant forms the temporal and spatial component
of the four-vector special relativity expression. The observable world by
extension is comprised of multiples of whole number molecules excited in
principal quantum whole number states. All chemical reactions are balanced with
whole numbers in this manner including all organic chemical reactions. In fact,
all subatomic interactions are expressed in whole number quanta as well (for
example, one positron and one electron can collide and annihilate each other to
create two photons called gamma rays) – all in simple arithmetic.

Process, Communication, and Programming

Establishing a quantum of energy that governs reactions
creates a different universe than we might think. We know that everything is
discrete behaving on well defined boundaries of energy.

The point to remember is everything energy-wise operates at
the quantum level in discrete amounts, which we experience as aggregate at the
observable level. In this sense, the quantum energy packets operate as if they
were fluid with an extensive set of processing/programming rules for energy
absorption, transfer, annihilation, and conservation.

Think of quantum particle-waves as having information
boundaries relative to the type and amount of energy that each particle
interchanges and communicates with other particles. This is the intelligent use
of the quality and types of energy at the quantum level that shapes the
observable world. At the quantum level, energy is classified by type and
characteristic. Each is programmed to provide a specific quantum of energy,
etc. at a specific time for a specific purpose. Regardless whether these
interactions are organic or inorganic, there is always a set of base
programming processes that takes place discreetly at the quantum energy level.
If as String theory asserts that everything is composed of Strings of vibrating
energy then all energy interchange is nothing more than programmed
communication that shape shifts to accommodate the interaction.

What this means to us

The more we understand this quantum world, the easier it is
to assimilate and accommodate it. We are the quantum world. We are one with it
and it is universal by means of interconnectedness (Bells theorem). This means
we are universal.

All life and “non-life” (i.e. everything) share energy
continuously in an intelligent interchange called quantum mechanics. All energy
everywhere is continuously exchanging information with all energy everywhere.
Information is intelligent energy.
