This mind is the matrix of all matter

This morning I followed an ad-link from The Daniel Institute of Dream Interpretation homepage, and ended up at a site promoting an ebook that promises ”the perfect system that empowers you to create an extraordinary life by fulfilling your deepest desires”.
Anyway, it was at this page I found a fragment of the following quote of Max Planck:
As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.

- Hhmmmmm……. 😉
- Coming from the mouth of one of the more distinguished modern physicists, this is quite an assertion indeed! ”… We must assume … the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”
Taken seriously, this is the final stroke against our current dualistic view of the world.
For example, were those sicknesses actually demons who Jesus encountered 2000 years ago, or were they just … sicknesses? Well, if we take Max Planck’s research experience seriously, we could say that these sicknesses were both naturalistic and ”demonic”, in the sense that the sickness must have come into existence by ”a conscious and intelligent mind”.
There isn’t anymore Matter OR Mind; there is now Matter AND Mind simultaneously! They are not opposed to each other. It’s not that ”demonic” rules away naturalistic, or naturalistic rules away ”demonic”, the sicknesses are BOTH naturalistic and ”demonic” at the same time.
(Am I saying that we should stop treating patients medically, and begin to drive out demons? No! You’re not getting it. The medical treatment is actually driving out the ”demon”. If you still don’t get it, then you might want to ”Free your mind!” as one well known dream researcher once said.)
Now, what did I mean by the first comment ”Hhmmmmm……. ;-)”? Well, when I dug deeper into the website of the above ad, I found their presentation of their PC program called Neuro Progammer 2, which, I presume, through sensory data accesses our brain waves. At the end of the page they state: ”Certain Brainwave patterns can even be used to access exotic or extraordinary experiences such as ”lucid dreaming” or ultra-realistic visualization.” Well, this ”ultra-realistic visualization” very much reminds me of a starteling film scene from a starteling film 10 years ago! Hhmmmmm…… 😉
