A Scientific Explanation Of The Law Of Attraction

Feb 26, 2008
Since the very successful movie The Secret came out, people across the world have taken a fascination with the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction states that we actualize reality through our thoughts and intentions. But does this "law" have any scientific verification?

Currently, the most overlooked and misunderstood branch of science is quantum physics. Quantum physics delves deeply into the fabric of our reality and endeavors to explain how the micro affects the macro. Quantum physics is still largely lacking, as we do not have the tools yet to see deep enough (small enough) into matter to know everything. However, what has been revealed so far is more than enough from which to grasp a practical understanding of the Law of Attraction.

One of the most intriguing discoveries of quantum physics is that matter behaves like a particle or a wave. Let me explain. A particle is solid matter - it is limited to being in one place at a time, and you can always identify its location. A wave, however, is not a finite point. The definition of a wave, as it relates to physics, is as follows: a progressive disturbance propagated from point to point in a medium or space without progress or advance by the points themselves, as in the transmission of sound or light. Sound confusing? Don't worry, you don't have to understand that, just realize that waves are not finite. Light and sound are examples of waves.

Now what quantum physics found is that when firing very small particles called electrons through two slits, if the electrons were observed while going through the slits, then they acted as particles. Each electron picked one slit, went through it, and hit the screen on the back. The result after firing hundreds or thousands of these was a two-slit pattern. However, if the electrons were NOT observed while going through the slits, they created a large interference pattern on the screen behind, which is the pattern caused by a wave. In addition, the pattern showed interference from the slits, which further proves that the electrons passed through the slits as a wave, and not as solid particles.

So what does that mean for us? When you consider the fact that electrons and other small particles are what our entire world is created from, the implications are enormous. An observer actually modifies objective events on a subatomic level. Our act of observation, thought, and emotion affect the world. When scientists made attempts to watch an electron and decide where it would go, they found that wherever the observer anticipated it would show up is where it would show up. The implications of this are equally huge - our expectations, thoughts and beliefs literally form the world around us on a subatomic scale!

Obviously, the ability of our thoughts and beliefs to alter and create reality is precisely what the Law of Attraction is teaching us. Now that you have a little scientific background, maybe you can put your current beliefs aside and try it out. If someone told you that you could have everything you wanted, would that at least be worth giving it a try? Suspend your disbelief, and be amazed!
