Physics and Reality – A Map for Human Potential Part 1


photo part 1 physicsHow can Quantum Physics affect our daily life? Author Veerle De Bock explores ‘the field of endless possibilities’ that surrounds us and permeates our bodies.

Physics is a map that can assist us as we navigate through our lives; delivering us insight and understanding into our fascinating life in this physical body. This map helps us become aware of our astonishing potential and the endless possibilities that exist in the ‘energy soup’ that surrounds us.

In this 3-part series, we will examine the different sequences (or categories) of this map and how they relate to our daily life.

  • In part one we will look at quantum physics
  • In part two we will explore electromagnetism, Newtonian mechanics and gravity.
  • Finally, part three will explain how magic resides in the connection between Quantum Physics and Classical Physics.

I invite you to embark with me on this fascinating journey as we ask, what is Quantum Physics? How can the different definitions within Quantum Physics affect your potential in your daily life?

The interesting sequence of Quantum Physics

Nobel prize-winning physicists know, beyond doubt, that our physical world is one large soup of energy, which is organized in a specific way.

In the world of quantum physics, nothing is solid. Creation in the Universe happens continuously through flashes of energy that come in and out of being in milliseconds.

In order to understand the sequence of quantum physics, we define the Zero Point Field (see the work of Steven Hawking), the Quantum Hologram and Quantum Superposition (see the work of Edgar Mitchell) and Morphogenetic Fields (see the work of Rupert Sheldrake) and, look at the inter-relationship between them.

The Universe, a field of endless possibilities

The Zero Point Field is the almost unlimited, ubiquitous energy source (or essence) that permeates and sustains all matter and all living beings – it is everywhere.

This amazing Field points to our interconnectedness – to how everything in the Universe is linked.

In spiritual terms, the Zero Point Field is often called ‘the field of endless possibilities’ and is considered to be the source of all our ideas and dreams as well as the essence of who we are. Nature is an ongoing resource that allows us to experience the endless possibilities that lie outside of us in our daily life. There are many examples. You can perceive them through simply gazing into a cloud-filled sky, through connecting deeply with a tree, through sensing the mountains or perceiving even a single flower.

This Zero Point Field is also present inside of us, at our heart. An easy way to connect with it is through our core qualities – those qualities that define who ‘you’ are (empathy, love, integrity, intelligence, purity, endurance, clarity, etc.). Our core qualities are our ‘essence’, the same essence that makes up the field of endless possibilities.

Essence relates to our potential. As spiritual beings (or souls) that incarnate to the human realm in order to experience and progress on a personal path while also offering something to the world, we engage with the Zero Point Field, both internally and externally in order to perform our tasks.

Information Storage

Within the Zero Point Field resides the Quantum Hologram – where all the information present in the Universe is stored. No experience, story or emotion is ever lost in the Universe; all the information related to any of our experiences is carried forward within the Quantum Hologram.

Holograms store three-dimensional images of information using interference patterns that occur between the waves emitted by two particles. This explains how there is a fluidity in the Universe – nothing is solid.

This fluidity makes sense of the different time relationship that exists at a quantum level. The hologram not only contains what has already happened, but also everything that will emerge in the future. This is a fascinating idea, because it offers us the possibility of making another choice; to change what is happening and to access the field of endless possibilities.

What is the practicality of this knowledge? How can a Quantum Hologram affect our daily life? Our soul has this amazing Quantum Hologram at its disposal to help it achieve its task on Earth.

If our life task mainly involves finding safety within ourselves then the Quantum Hologram will provide us with many different stories, emotions and events that all are related to safety. Someone shares a story with us that describes harsh circumstances and, suddenly we perceive anxiety about something that happened to us, an accident resulting in physical injury that could unfold.

You can read more about how the Quantum Hologram relates to the smallest events in our lives in my earlier article, Whatever Happens is Useful.

Different Available Realities

While the Quantum Hologram contains all that has ever happened and is yet to happen in the Universe, Quantum Superposition is the phenomenon that organizes all these available realities. These Superpositions contain every possible version of existence and history. They explain how, the moment we give our attention to one possibility (or Superposition), all the other possibilities collapse, thus becoming temporarily unavailable. So, when you give your attention to a specific story from your past that is stored in the Quantum Hologram, that Superposition becomes your reality – you live your life ‘now’ as if the story is happening ‘now’.

Here’s an example. On a recent trip to Zimbabwe, I arrived at the airport in Harare to find that there was nobody there to pick me up. I perceived anxiety. I had never been to Zimbabwe before and I was completely alone with nobody to take care of me. In that moment, I gave my attention to an old story from my childhood in which I was too young to care for myself, I felt alone and unsafe. Life was harsh. This reality became mine as I stood in Harare airport wondering what to do.

Slowly, I became aware, I breathed deeply in and out and gently let go of my old story.

My friend Maaianne was supposed to be at the airport to pick me up and unfortunately, we hadn’t exchanged cell phone numbers. I continued breathing deeply in and out and, as I relaxed, I remembered that Maaianne’s cell phone number was at the end of all her emails. As I tried to make contact with her I started to enjoy the warmth and the bustle of the people around me and I began to feel safe within myself. At that moment I didn’t know which reality would become mine – I was open to several possibilities.

At that moment, my reality was not yet organized; this brings me to another phenomenon in Quantum Physics.

Organizing Principles

The various available realities are closely related to the existence of Morphogenetic Fields – underlying energy fields within the larger Field of Endless Possibilities that act as organizing principles, giving form to various levels of reality.

For example, each disease process has its own Morphogenetic Field that gives it its form in the physical body. 

And let us stretch this concept a bit further. You and I also have our own Morphogenetic Fields which give form to our own personal individuality – to that which makes us uniquely ‘us’. Our personal Morphogenetic Field contains our soul, with its unique purpose that gives rise to our intentions for this specific incarnation. Within our Morphogenetic Field we make use of all the available realities to create an actual reality for ourselves in this moment using the stories, emotions and experiences from the Quantum Hologram.


Quantum Physics is a fascinating way to access your potential. In order to make sense of what is happening to you and around you, to understand who ‘you’ are and your unique mission on Earth, your soul acts through Quantum Physics.

This amazing field of endless possibilities is an ongoing resource to constantly renew and redefine yourself. It offers you hope for the future, not a hope based on old beliefs and patterns but a hope for new, as yet unknown, possibilities or realities.

Quantum Physics shows us that the world is not the hard and unchangeable place it may appear to be. Instead, it is a very fluid place, continually creating, using essence from the field of endless possibilities.

So fascinating!

In my book, Becoming What is Changing: Exposition, you can explore more about our human potential.

I hope I have conveyed to you the beauty and excitement of experiencing Quantum Physics in your daily life.

Part 2 of this article series will explore how Classical Physics relates to our physical body and to our personality.

All your comments are amazing energy flashes and are very welcome.

She spent nearly three decades of her life as a physician specializing in geriatric care, including a 21-year career as department head in an Antwerp regional hospital. In 2003, she began her study as an energetic healer, teacher, process facilitator and supervisor at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing and, since 2007 has helped many trainees to master these same skills. In 2010 she was trained in the practice of Dynamic Facilitation by Jim Rough, which she now incorporates into her workshops and training sessions. In 2012 she decided to devote her work exclusively to writing, facilitation and coaching. That same year, she devised a new integrative practice of facilitation she calls ‘Guest House Facilitation’ that helps teams learn how to listen and utilise both the inner and outer processes within their organisation, to see it as a dynamic and living organism, and to reconnect to its intrinsic purpose and intention. Her book, Becoming What is Changing: Exposition, is the first part of a trilogy aimed at managers, team leaders and responsible employees who wish to bring this kind of transformation into the workplace, so they can create an environment where people are happy, satisfied and continuously growing.
