“For hundreds of years brilliant physicists and philosophers have tried to represent our world in mathematical models of particle physics that state that our physical world is made of matter of which the smallest part is called the ‘atom’. Atom is an ancient Greek word meaning undividable; it is supposedly the smallest part of matter that cannot be divided anymore!
Quantum mechanics however noticed that particles in some cases behaved like waves and later introduced the wave-particle duality.
Some quantum scientists already suggested in the past that the quantum waves could be real waves after all, existing in the physical domain. They did not believe in particle wave duality.
As long ago as 1937 Erwin Schrödinger wrote that, ‘what we observe as material bodies and forces are nothing but shapes and variations in the structure of space itself.’
Eventually even Einstein rejected the idea of discrete particles and believed that particles were in fact part of a continuous field.
A growing number of post quantum physicists are discovering what Einstein and Schrödinger already assumed; physics may have been on the wrong track all along, misled by the idea that the material world exists of separate hard particles!
They are suggesting now that we may live in a wave-based universe.
Matter is simply the focal point of a vibration in an energy sea called the ether.”
