It is time for an exercise. In the original version of this book, the backside of the pages are blank. If you have a reprint, then there should be some room below. Get up from where you’re sitting and go find a pen. Finish this sentence: “I am in possession of this book because __________”.
Sign and date the statement. It is important for you to do this now. Future exercises will depend on you doing so. Don’t worry about writing in this book. It’s OK 🙂
Our mind is capable of quantum experiences. While classical experiences are those experiences that arise from our interactions with a single classical universe, quantum experiences are when we interact with multiple classical universes, which I will call the quantum universe – or the multiverse. I am not certain now which is the better name. Perhaps the title of this book should be “Surfing the Quantum Universe : …”. I know now that in some universes, it is.
I just moved to a cushioned bench seat in the UCSC library. My butt was hurting from the hard chair I was sitting on. This is an example of me classically experiencing the universe.
Classical experiences involve on of the five senses – touch, taste, smell, hearing, sight. Everything we know and believe has been learned through classical experiences – or so we believe. We certainly expect our universe to behave in a classical manner.
In other universe I misspell it and correct it as if I experienced in this universe. In still other universes, I misspell it and didn’t correct it.
What I now know is that all of these universes are real – they exist as much as the one I experience (in a classical sense).
What does it mean to “experience” a universe? I just added the parenthetical clarification “(in a classical sense)”, so let’s discuss that now.
So you turned the page! I knew you would 😉 So here is what gives me confidence in your actions…
I have discovered that there are multiple universes. I don’t mean that I am the first to discover this. I mean that from my own experiences, I have concluded that I exists as a conscious being in multiple interacting universes. In some of these universe, I correctly spell “conscious” in the last sentence.
This is as good a title as any for what you are about to read. I am 100% certain that you will read this entire book – every word. I am as certain of this as I am that I in fact finish writing this book. How can I be so sure? 100%? Turn the page to find out … 🙂
