We all have our ideas about how the world and universe work. Some of us see the hand of “God” in everything. Others are atheists or agnostics—still others are guided by spirituality. But no matter where we are on the “believe” spectrum, most of us see a rather benign universe. By that I mean that we do not see specific forces struggling with one another in the cosmos once we get away from earth, which is interesting to me. We see conflict and battles on earth but not in the rest of the universe.
We view it much as we do a documentary—no plots, no dynamics—just an intriguing show. We look at ourselves—human life on earth—as being the real show. But that separation has, I believe, caused us to distort our perceptions of the Big Picture. I think if we start seeing the natural conflicts that exist in the universe, then we might start the process that leads to fewer human conflicts on earth.
Why don’t we see a dynamic operating in the universe where forces are actually vying against one another? After all, it would be just as easy to see a battle as it would a “beautiful picture show”. But a powerful force is setting the agenda, and it wants us to see conflict on earth but not in the cosmos. Why is that? Because if you see a dynamic at work in the cosmos, then you will quickly see a dynamic at work among human beings. And then you would probably develop an independent, inquisitive mindset which would threaten the existence of the “agenda” creators. I call this force the SN for structural nucleus. It is the power-control center of human organizations, whether country or company. SNs run the gamut—from practical and reasonable to violent and suffocating.
I introduced the IMPACTS and the IMPACTS concept in a couple of articles on this site, June 22 and June 29, 2010. The IMPACTS are a group of people I discovered about ten years ago who make everything work in human society. They are the fuel for the human race. Take them out and the whole societal machine would come to a screeching halt—just as a car without fuel would go nowhere.
Originally, I found the IMPACTS in the business world on both sides of the transaction—as a valuable customer and as an innovative, entrepreneurial business person. But then I started seeing them in everything I read—history, science, anthropology, art and culture, contemporary society—anything and everything. The IMPACTS were quiet leaders and change artists, trying to maximize the potential of the environment. What I seemed to be seeing was a salient dynamic—it was so consistent and predictable that I started exploring the physical world to see if it existed there as well. I suspected that it did.
The hydrogen atom, one proton and one electron, appears to me to be the structural model for the universe, which only makes sense because it was possibly the first “structure” in the universe, forming 380,000 years after the Big Bang. The proton is relatively massive and therefore pulling inward; the electron is almost mass-less, and is, I believe, essentially captured by the proton. The electron is the “creative” part of the structure. How so?
There are different energy levels for electrons in the atom. The first level will hold 2 electrons, the second 8 electrons, the third 18, the fourth 32, and so on. When the outer energy level is not complete, then the electron(s) in that level is a valence electron, meaning that it is ready and willing to bond with the valence electron of another atom, forming a NEW structure—a molecule—and achieving balance. Balance appears to be a primary goal of a force or forces of the universe but not of all forces.
Going back to the “beginnings” in the physical universe necessitated going back to the early beginnings of modern humans. There I discovered the San tribe of Africa, the oldest modern human group, having emerged well over 100,000 years ago. Their shaman-centered way of life laid the foundation for modern humanity. It became clear to me that today’s problem-solving IMPACTS possess the same basic characteristics as the San and shaman—the San tribe members being cooperative and sharing, the shaman innovative and somewhat “asymmetrical”—often different in behavior, thought, perception, vision, and more. This asymmetry seemed to motivate him to balance himself and the tribe—to “maximize” the potential around him. There were female shamans also, particularly in the San tribe.
Another element was very clear: the San tribe was the out-of-Africa group. The evidence was overwhelming. Why would this not be common knowledge across the world, especially the anthropological world? There could only be one reason—there must be a force that was benefitting from it not being accepted knowledge.
In my study the social world became entangled with the physical world. I could actually detect no difference between the two as far as energy dynamics were concerned. Both were following the EXACT same model, and again, that model was based on the hydrogen atom: an inner massive core and an opposite, “lighter and more mobile” energy on the periphery.
Our universe is governed by the second law of thermodynamics, which basically states that concentrated energy is an anomaly. The tendency of the universe is toward high entropy, or maximum disorder. But obviously there is much concentrated energy that we see—billions of galaxies with billions of stars, planets in our solar system and more being discovered around other stars, and on earth life, including us. Something is working to overcome the second law.
I read Dr. Robert Piccioni’s Everyone’s Guide to Atoms, Einstein, and the Universe and contacted him. He agreed to answer some of my physics questions. One of his quotes was:
“Life has a very unique relationship to the second law of thermodynamics. That law makes a statistical statement–it is vastly more likely than not that in any closed system particle energies will equalize and disorder will increase. Life seems uniquely able to consistently overcome the second law, not by violating that law, but by systematically taking in more ordered matter and expelling less ordered matter. Life decreases its disorder at the expense of its surrounding. This is allowed by the second law, and is essential to any living organism. Indeed, I think this leads to a very sensible definition of Life: Any entity that can consistently overcome the second law is Alive.”
The carbon atom is the perfect foundation for life because it has 4 electrons in its outer energy level and therefore needs 4 more to complete that outer level. Carbon is therefore stable and reactive—we could say asymmetrical, just as the hydrogen atom is with its one electron, which is also a valence electron. You will recall that the first energy level in the atom holds 2 electrons. But most of the atomic world is asymmetrical as it relates to the outer energy level of the electrons. Carbon is significant because it will bond with other carbon atoms along with other atoms such as oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, sulfur, and phosphorous, forming long chains of organic molecules for life. These molecules have concentrated energy in the covalent bonds between the electrons, and thus are working against the ever-present second law.
The IMPACTS group I mentioned earlier, though I believe a small percentage of human society (probably 5 to 10%), appeared to me to be the “ordered matter” of human society, though asymmetry was often not far away. The IMPACTS were the “carbon atoms and molecules”—they kept everything bonded together and functioning. Plus they had “concentrated energy” and were always looking for ways to improve their particular environment, whether business, family, or even the physical environment, including the home.
There seemed to me to be two major forces in the universe—a male force and a female force. Why male and female? Because the traits generally associated with males and females on earth were the same as those I was seeing across the universe. The proton was male—it was “capturing” the electron, getting Bigger and Stronger. The black hole of a galaxy, another massive core, was doing the same—it was getting Bigger and Stronger as stars formed around it, some of which it “ate”. As the galaxy grew, it would try to capture other galaxies, again becoming Bigger and Stronger. These are traits generally associated with males and male-led organizations, including countries.
The electron was female. It was creative as it bonded with the electron of another atom to create a molecule. It shared and cooperated, traits more suggestive of female behavior.
All of my study suggested to me that there was a tug-of-war across the universe between male and female forces—male forces trying to get Bigger and Stronger, female forces trying to create and produce in order to defeat the second law of thermodynamics. Male forces seemed to be aligned or allied with the second law—they took what they wanted or what they could take, breaking up the energy field around them.
So one force was aiding the second law and one force was its antithesis. One was pulling inward—one was reaching outward and bonding. Inward pressure—outward pressure, the same model everywhere you look. Stars, the atom, a galaxy with its black-hole center—all the same model. It’s the same in the social world as well—businesses, families, countries—all with pulling-inward elements and all with creative-productive pressure that maintains equilibrium—sometimes. That is the subconscious goal anyway.
In a star, when the hydrogen fuel is exhausted, the star collapses on itself. So the outward pressure caused by the fusion of hydrogen into helium and the subsequent release of massive amounts of energy prevent the star from collapsing. The IMPACTS group that I had discovered in society seemed to me to be performing the same role—they were the fuel that kept society functioning. And they too were often found on the PERIPHERY, just like the valence electron and just like the outward pressure of a star. Some IMPACTS however were more peripheral than others.
I was still looking for something that would explain what we see, which is a universe with copious amounts of ordered matter and, at the same time, a universe that is expanding at the speed of light.
Physicists presently (as far as I know) believe there are four fundamental forces in the universe:
- The strong nuclear force
- The weak force
But the weak and the electromagnetic forces are believed to actually be one force, the electroweak. The male and female forces I mentioned may be an amalgam of these (now) 3 forces, or the universe could have a thousand or a million forces. Still, presently, I think primarily there is a male force and a female force, or there could be a male force, a female force, and a hybrid of the two. Anything is possible. We are not looking for the definitive answer—we couldn’t find it anyway at this particular stage of our development. We are looking for strong probabilities and possibilities—we are looking to move the boundaries of our present knowledge. We can fill in the blanks later. Let’s get the template down first.
Dr. Robert Piccioni again, speaking of the “accidental” nature of life and human beings existing:
“The asymmetry of the weak force (technical term is CP-violation) that very slightly favors matter over antimatter is one of these knobs. There is no known reason why the weak force acts this way. By 1 second after the Big Bang, there were 1,000,000,001 particles for every 1,000,000,000 antiparticles. If that asymmetry had been slightly more, the universe would have long since collapsed to nothing, hence no life. If that asymmetry had been slightly less, the universe would have almost no matter in it and would have expanded so rapidly that a volume of space now occupied by an entire galaxy might instead contain only 1 atom, hence no life. No one knows why, but we are quite sure this is true.
The electromagnetic part of the electroweak does not violate CP; only the weak part does.
EM and weak forces were mathematically united into electroweak because they both involve the exchange of spin 1 bosons. EM forces arise when charged particles exchange a photon, which has zero mass resulting in a force with infinite range. Weak forces arise when any particles exchange an intermediate vector boson (W+, W–, or Z0), which have masses in the range of 90 times the proton mass resulting in extremely short range forces (much less than the diameter of a proton).
CP violation arises in the W/Z exchanges. The amount of CP violation is quite small—less than 1% of the weak force which itself is generally less than 1% of the EM force. (An absolute direct comparison of force strengths is not possible as they vary in different ways with various parameters such as charge.)”
I believe this carries all the way through the universe, including to the IMPACTS. What do I mean? I mean a slight asymmetry that produces “positive” results just as the early asymmetry of the weak force produced matter. We may not be able to see it “scientifically” at this time, but there are just too many “coincidences” for it not to be a real phenomenon.
I have mentioned that the IMPACTS are the group that holds humanity together—and they are its fuel. And like the San-shaman, they are often asymmetrical (off-the-beaten-path), or come from a family with “asymmetry”—such as autism or so-called psychological issues. But this is what we should expect because I believe that the San and shaman profiles are embedded in the human genome, and are now manifested through the IMPACTS. I strongly suspect that autism may have been the progenitor of modern humans—the asymmetry that was needed—and is still prevalent because it possesses value for our species. What value? Creative genius often resides near it.
The wolf pack seems to have embedded roles; e.g., alpha, beta, and omega. Why would humans be any different? I don’t think we gave up social strategies and social roles when we acquired higher consciousness though most of us would like to think we did. In the wolf pack, the beta wolf is the glue that holds the pack together, and is very often male. The beta sees needs that others do not see—and takes care of them. It is the same with the IMPACTS in the human “pack”—they see needs and they seek solutions. The entire group leans toward androgyny and has a strong female orientation. The group is predominantly heterosexual but there are large numbers of homosexual IMPACTS as well, just as there were large numbers of homosexual shamans.
What the asymmetry of the weak force appears to be doing is PREVENTING COLLAPSE. It is overcoming the second law—or trying to. Its actions help maintain outward pressure such as you find with fusion in a star. There would be no stars without the weak force. The weak force changes hydrogen into deuterium, an isotope of hydrogen, and then fusion can take place. The weak force is also responsible for all the different elements that have been formed since hydrogen. So the weak force is really responsible for most of what we see in the universe. It is the creative force—and it is slightly asymmetrical—just as are many IMPACTS—and just as was the shaman. You have to have asymmetry or nothing happens. Asymmetry is the condition that initiates the process that leads to order and “ordered matter”.
The weak force is also responsible for radioactivity which helps keep the iron core of the earth molten, which in turn produces a strong magnetic field. This field protects us from the dangerous solar wind of the sun. You can see that the weak force is anything but weak.
The San-shaman’s main role was to prevent collapse of the tribe and to maintain the health of individuals—to prevent the collapse of human beings into death—to keep their outward pressure functioning. That is what the IMPACTS are doing—preventing collapse of societies, companies, countries, communities, people—maintaining outward pressure, keeping the “fires” burning. That is why you find them on the periphery—like the valence electron(s).
It appears that the weak force is the ultimate computer—it KNOWS what needs to be done at the CRITICAL moment—like the Big Bang. The shamans were asking the same question—what needs to be done at this precise moment in order to maximize the potential? The IMPACTS are asking the same question. That’s why you find them at critical positions where collapse is possible.
The weak force was there at the moment of the Big Bang and produced a tiny bit more matter than antimatter. The IMPACTS are trying to do the same wherever they are—produce the “little extras” that will lead to positive results for all—that will “save the day”. It can be a nurse in the emergency room, an entrepreneur like Steven Jobs who changes the world, the director of a non-profit who discovers a new approach to raising money, or any one of the millions of people around the world who every day use their caring, innovative energy to “find a way to make it happen”.
The IMPACTS don’t have the power that the weak force appears to have but they usually have its “exacting” nature and its desire for balance—the template appears to be the same.
Brian Greene, author of The Fabric of the Cosmos:
“Some discoveries provide answers to questions. Other discoveries are so deep that they cast questions in a whole new light, showing that previous mysteries were misperceived through lack of knowledge. You could spend a lifetime—in antiquity, some did—wondering what happens when you reach earth’s edge, or trying to figure out who or what lives on earth’s underbelly. But when you learn that the earth is round, you see that the previous mysteries are not solved; instead they are rendered irrelevant.”
That is what I am attempting to do—render many mysteries irrelevant. Why? Because “untruths” prevent human beings from optimizing the potential that exists. I have a “weak force”, IMPACTS attitude—a drive for efficiency and “the best it can be” results.
What will “science” say about this discovery? It will mostly throw cold water on it because what I am proposing cannot be measured. But then how could you measure a dynamic? You couldn’t—not presently anyway. I suspect we will find ways to measure it once we accept the possibility that it exists. We couldn’t “measure” electrons at one time either. Does that mean they didn’t exist until we learned how to measure them?
I believe that science today is captured just as the electron is captured in the atom. Who has captured it? The power-control element I mentioned earlier—the SN. The SN has no power unless it has copious numbers of innovative IMPACTS and their energy, just as a black hole is powerless without billions of stars. The SN, like the proton, does not create—it depends on the IMPACTS (the valence electrons) for creative-production. That is where it gets its power.
At one time science was on the periphery. Remember Galileo, Einstein, Newton, and countless others? They were on the periphery. But now science has been captured and brought into the SN energy field, and the SN says what is and what isn’t science. Science and the SN are joined at the hip—just like the proton and electron in the hydrogen atom. Science answers to the SN—it has become politicized, meaning that it has lost its independence and objectivity. The societal SN, predominantly male, wants to use science to get what the male force in the universe seems to crave—Bigger and Stronger.
Why has this not been seen before, as far as we know? Because human beings would quickly start connecting the dots. If all models behave essentially the same way—with a pulling-inward male force and a creative-productive female force—then human society tends toward the same model. And therefore, it can be analyzed just as a galaxy or an atom can be analyzed. The vast majority of people are not ready for that—they prefer the paradigm that they know. People are trying to adjust to the world—they are not trying to create a new one. I think a new one needs to be created, and it has to start with knowledge and awareness of the dynamics involved. You can’t fix anything if you don’t understand how it works. Human society behaves exactly like the atom—it has 2 major forces just as the atom has 2 major forces, and they are the same forces and they behave the same.
Human beings have not always separated themselves from the natural world. Before the development of agriculture, the San-like people tried to live in harmony with nature. With agriculture came the emergence of a predominantly-male, SN power-control force which captured the San-like people as its fuel—exactly as protons did with electrons 380,000 years after the Big Bang. It is the same dynamic, and it is the same dynamic throughout the universe and the natural world.
One reason the world has so many seemingly insoluble problems is that the SN is in total control and the IMPACTS have no idea who they are and where they stand in the grand scheme of things. I hope I can change that—IMPACTS need to understand that they are the real source of power around the world, and they can start using that power more judiciously once they understand how all of it works.
Everything is political. The SN force that emerged with agriculture has always wanted to keep people in the dark—to keep knowledge away so they could maintain control. It is no different today but the machinations are more cleverly disguised. The SN wants people to believe it is “us against them”—us against other countries, religions, and societies. It is not. It is the SN against other SNs, and all are using the IMPACTS as their fuel—to create and produce goods and services (the economy) and weaponry for the military. SNs are essentially pitting IMPACTS against IMPACTS, which is especially heinous because IMPACTS are usually peaceful people who just want to make the world better. The creative-productive abilities of the IMPACTS are used by SNs around the world to inflict horrible damage on other people. The SN-types would prefer that the IMPACTS not learn that they (the IMPACTS) are the powerful “weak force” of humanity. Then the SNs can continue setting the agenda.
I have repeatedly said over the past few years that I see a dynamic operating across the universe that tries to maximize the potential. After years of study, I now believe it is the weak force.
Is the weak force God? I think the weak force is predominantly Goddess.
