Quantum physics and Buddhism

Quantum physics and Buddhism


The lore of Tibetan Buddhism has said from ancient times that the universe (everything) is infinite, that space/time is existence, that ordinary time does not exist, that there are infinite realms beyond our physical one, and that there are an infinite number of “beings.”   Several old Buddhist masters (and some today) were observed to be physically in more than one place at a time, to shape-shift, and to be able to put their hand (or whole self) through solid stone.  Via reincarnation, beings can be in any of the infinite realms at infinite spans of “time” (“reincarnation being just the return from the bardo state).  Quantum physics are finally catching up to those old Buddhist masters ideas.


Quantum physics are already agreeing that the speed of light is not a limiting factor for “space travel” nor even a real constant.  Entangled/coupled “matter” have the same conditions although separated by extensive distances, and what happens in one place immediately is the state of the other place.  What we call great distance travel (i.e., lots of time in transit) is just primitive conceptualizing.   Beings can and do visit Earth, and have for a long time;  some live here permanently.


There are parallel universes, and I have been in one of two from time to time in this life of mine.  Humans are still a long way from getting the bigger picture.
