RE: The Science Behind The Law Of Attraction
Awesome post, thanks for your work @cryptogee !
So here's how I would approach this (trying not to go down the pseudo-scientific path); starting from the quantum realm (and the famous double-slit experiment), we know consciousness (observation - the focus of attention) is what collapses the wave function and gives rise to a single observed position for the quantum particle, out of the infinitely many - or put differently, out of the infinite 'parallel worlds' where the quantum particle (ex photon) exists simultaneously.
Now, lets make a quantum leap (pun intended) from the microscopic to the macroscopic world of our first-person experience and external reality. And let's parallel the 'infinite possibilities' of the quantum particle to the framework of the 'Multiverse Theory' - 'Many-worlds interpratation'. Of course, the Multiverse - the infinite parallel timelines and worlds which all exist simultaneously - is well, just a theory, which we cannot prove, and has String Theory as a foundation, which we also cannot prove (it is mathematically sound nonetheless). So in the framework of the Multiverse, there is an infinite number of 'copies' of ourselves, or may I say 'fractals' of our individual consciousness (indeed one can also say that we are all fractals of the collective consciousness / the God Mind / one Cosmic Consciousness - collectively experiencing itself from all possible points of view in every possible situation..but I digress).
So... without even also delving into cognitive science , the holographic universe hypothesis or even simulation theory, let's ponder the subject matter; the LOA. What if the focus of our intent - or consciousness - on one single thought/wish in our macroscopic world (much like the focus of our consciousness, or observation, of the particle in the quantum world) is what connects the different timelines of the multiverse, and with the power of focusing our consciousness on something (and acting on it) we slowly but steadily have different timelines (the current and the 'wished for') gradually converge, through certain 'coincidences' that happen - or may I say synchronicities. Kind of like the saying that when you want something really bad, the whole universe conspires for that to happen. In other words, the manifestation under the LOA practically involves moving from the current timeline to the desired parallel one via the focus of our consciousness.
I think it's a cool musing... :D
thanks again for your post :)
