Love, Gravity and Interstellar Laws of Attraction
Is love and gravity one and the same thing? Is this what Quantum mechanics is suggesting? It’s one of the themes explored in Christopher Nolan’s epic Interstellar which is a landmark film in that it appears to be taking many of the theories of Quantum physics mainstream. For those who have yet to see the film, I promise no spoilers so feel free to read on.
To give you the plot without giving away the ending, when the Earth can no longer produce food for us, the main protagonist played by Matthew McConaughey, leaves his family behind to head off into space to find a replacement planet. This involves not just leaving behind the people he loves but the ‘rules’ that govern life on this planet – in other words, those that apply to space and time as he navigates wormholes, ends up on planets where time passes differently, but love and gravity appear to be the governing forces (even though gravity varies on the planets he goes to it turns out to be the key to unlocking everything – as does love). Much of the story is based on real physics and physicist Kip Thorne actually worked with Nolan on the film to ensure the science was correct.
What is interesting for all of us, especially those of us who want to see how this fits in with our Quantum Creating practice, is that the film deals with the idea of Quantum Entanglement – what Einstein called ‘spooky action at a distance’. In other words (or worlds!), when two particles (or people in this case) have interacted, how they continue to behave even though they may be at opposite ends of the universe – or in the case of this film, in another universe entirely. As the storyline develops we see again and again how the character’s lives continue to unfold in parallel ways at the same time and to the same things, even though they are in fact in different dimensions of space/time! It’s a powerful thought, who we connect with we are eternally connected with. However this also works in our favour!
What does this tell us? That once connected even on a psychic level that entanglement works? In other words, you cosmic order or visualise something and at that point entanglement occurs that will bring this thing to you (or at the very least influence it!). The film’s themes also seem to be attempting to unify science and mysticism – and let’s face it, much of Quantum theory does sound just like mysticism. In the end, it is love and the understanding of gravitational forces which brings about a resolution (and that’s as far as I am going to revealing the story!). So, is love and gravity one and the same and will this be proven? Of course, no one, not even Stephen Hawking can answer that yet. But what I believe is that when we work with love we draw what we need into our orbit and perhaps that’s all we need to know when we are working with QC techniques and seeking to attract more abundance or love into our lives.
Just what is gravity anyway? One thing is that perhaps science, art and mysticism can agree on it. In the words of one of my favourite poets e.e.cummings :
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
Science and mysticism may not be kept apart when we begin to consider how much we are discovering about our universe – and that’s the wonder!
