Kabbalah & Quantum Physics – Meat & Potatoes Style
In the movie Bee Season, Richard Gere tells his daughter (who is a spelling whiz) that words express primal energy and when you permute the letters it takes you “beyond yourself”. I believe he was talking about “engaging the observer” and he was teaching her from the Kabbalah, showing her how God creates through words.
On his website Dr. Fred Alan Wolf explains “the observer”: “In quantum physics, the observer brings things into manifestation from the abstract world of ideas and possibilities into the world of actualities. The problem we have dealing with this is that the observer is not to be found in any single individual! Yet the observer is in all individuals at the same time.”
The Sefer Yetzirah is the Ancient Book of Formation and is the foundation text for the Kabbalah. In it they look at Genesis and when god says “let there be light,” there is light and is an example of God speaking to create. For example, many believe that the magic word Abracadabra is believed to be from the Aramaic Avrah KaDabra which means I create as I speak.
Other Discoveries While Studying Quantum Physics
While studying quantum physics from the Dr. Fred Alan Wolf’s books Mind into Matter and Matter into Feeling with the folks on the On Eagles Wings webcast, Bee Season was brought to my attention and I am so happy it was. I had never watched it as I thought it was just about a spelling bee. I know quantum physics is the scientific explanation for Shamanism and now I am learning how it is the scientific explanation for the Kabbalah as well. My attempt here is to clarify and simplify what I have learned to the best of my ability.
Dr. Wolf has headed all 9 chapters of both books with the 9 letters/symbols of the Hebrew alphabet or aleph-bayt.
The Mind Into Matter Chapters are: Aleph, bayt, ghimel, dallet, hay, vav, zayn, hhayt and tayt.
In this first book the letters/symbols/numbers are dealing with the archetypes spirit represented by Aleph through Structure represented by Tayt. Each chapter then goes into the quantum world of creation or The New Alchemy.
In Matter into Feeling he now focuses on their development or as he says “their transformation from seeds into young sprouts”. This is accomplished by multiplying each letter/symbol by ten. These chapters are now: Aleph to Yod 1-10 (island-the movement to self-identity), bayt to khaf 2-20 (birth-the movement from dream to reality), ghimel to lammed 3-30 (wave-the movement from wave to feeling), dallet to mem 4-40 (blood-the movement of the trickster), hay to noon 5-50 (curve of life-the movement toward balance), vav to sammekh 6-60 (menses-the movement of sexual energy), zayn to ayn 7-70 (observation-the movement of the universe), hhayt to phay 8-80 (purity-the movement from self to soul), and tat to tsadde 9-90 (structure of love-the movement of life).
In Bee Season the whole family was, each in their own way, reaching for Nirvana. His daughter saw the creation of the words she was spelling and actually reached Nirvana by opening herself up to the primal energy of the words and their meaning.
In Mind into Matter Dr. Wolf deals with the resistance everyone must go through to manifest our dreams in the so called physical world, while dodging the mine field of patterns, addictions and engrams in our neuron-nets. In Matter into Feeling we learn that feeling stuck in these patterns is only a phase and that we can transform ourselves and get closer to that place called Nirvana. In this way, if we truly do create our world by what we think and therefore “observe”, then our words too must be carefully chosen for they carry the force of creation. By taking our responsibility for the creation of our world more seriously, we can be much better Co-Creators with the Creator.
