In my last post, I ventured to say that gravity has another name– synchronicity; Both are unseen fields of energy causing convergence of objects/events toward a single source. The difference is the source. While Earth and other planets have gravity, people have synchronicity. Both operate by the same Law of Attraction. So perhaps we can get a glimpse of how synchronicity works by looking at what we know, so far, about gravity.
The magic of gravity lies in what we cannot see. We know that apples fall off of trees down to Earth, but how exactly does Earth predictably attract apples to itself? Albert Einstein gave us a plausible explanation when he published his Theory of General Relativity in 1916. Einstein could ‘see’ space… at least enough to describe it with equations anyway.
According to Einstein’s theory, space is invisible to our eyes, but is itself a thing and it profoundly impacts the universe and everything in it, in predictable ways. Space is to us what the ocean is to fish —a medium not easily seen, but never-the-less bends, swirls, and flexes with every movement of every object contained within it. This flexing and bending has real consequences to other objects sharing the same space.
Because of such an intimate relationship with space, large objects such as planets significantly affect the space immediately around it causing the object to have gravity. This idea is commonly depicted as follows:
In the visualization above, space is a fabric that stretches in response to Earth’s mass. Smaller objects with enough velocity to orbit rather than smash into Earth, like the moon, are then ‘trapped’ in the bowl of space around Earth, causing the moon to continuously go round and round, like a ball at a roulette table.
While this image helps to make decent sense of Einstein’s theory of space, this common depiction of gravity doesn’t quite fit. The magic of space reduced to marbles on a bed sheet? Hmmm, I don’t think so.
First of all, if the above image were true there would be no gravity at the south-pole because space isn’t bending there. I haven’t been to the south-pole, but…
Space can’t be a fabric. It’s too dynamic and mysterious for such a comparison. Space is more like an ocean that surrounds its inhabitants. And the magic of gravity is in the dance—the intimate interaction between the inhabitants of space and space itself.
More specifically, Earth’s collective rotating energy causes the space around it to also rotate, literally creating a whirlpool of space with significant consequence for all other smaller objects within it (that would be us and everything on the planet, plus the moon).
Earth pulls apples to itself, not because its mass causes a depression in the fabric of space, but because its collective rotating energy causes a whirlpool of space, ‘sucking’ smaller objects, ever persistently toward Earth’s center, like the open drain of a full bathtub. If the Earth were to stop rotating, the whirlpool would disappear and Earth’s gravity along with it.
Here is a whirlpool within a whirlpool—a twister pulled down to earth.And here is a whirlpool in Earth’s atmosphere, otherwise known as a hurricane.
Traveling even further out, if you were to sprinkle star-dust on the outer space around Earth, you would see a whirlpool in space. Here is one artist’s rendering of the images of star-dust around our galaxy:
I’ve seen this artist rendering many times before. But recently I looked at this graphic and saw it again for the first time. It’s not just a picture of a static spiral galaxy. It’s a snapshot of a dynamic, swirling whirlpool of outer space.
The space around our galaxy consists of dark matter that we cannot see, but it is our ‘ocean’ and it responds to the massive energy at the center of our galaxy, which some scientists believe is a supermassive black hole. This black hole significantly alters the surrounding space, causing it to swirl, just like a drain underwater.
The gravity of the planets and the stars is a function of how large a whirlpool each object creates in the surrounding space. If this is true, then the synchronicity of people may very well be a function of how large a whirlpool we can create with our thoughts.
These whirlpools exert a centripetal ‘pull’ on its inhabitants, thereby profoundly impacting all the objects within it. This mechanism is how the center of our galaxy and the Earth, and any other collection of rotating energy, including your thoughts, ‘attracts’ things to itself.
To distinguish the whirlpools that cause synchronicity, let’s give the space of our thoughts a name like ‘the matrix’. So planets reside in outer space, clouds reside in the sky, fish reside in the ocean and thoughts reside in the matrix.
While whirlpools in space are generated by the rotation of planets about its axis, whirlpools in the matrix are generated by the rotation of thoughts about a particular topic axis. Your focus is what keeps thoughts rotating about an axis. That means you control the matrix by controlling your thoughts. Greater focus for a topic generates larger whirlpools of greater synchronicity. Like the whirlpools of outer space and the whirlpools in your bathtub, whirlpools in the matrix exert a synchronistic pull on other similar ‘objects’ within proximity. The trick is continued focus, which keeps your thoughts rotating about a topic. The longer your focus, the greater your whirlpool.
Emotion for a particular topic indicates whirlpools of high synchronicity. But that’s for another post! For now, it’s enough to imagine what synchronicity and gravity looks like. We are surrounded by whirlpools of space caused by an intimate dance between space and its inhabitants. This is the mechanism by which Earth pulls mass to itself and you pull others of similar intentions to yourself. The matrix is there for you to whirlpool as you wish.
