Side note: In school we were taught about atoms. They have a +charged nucleus and -charged electrons orbited around it. Actually, there are not little electrons in orbit whizzing around the nucleus. They exist as a probability waveform (PW) electron “cloud”. Within this they exist in all possible locations within the cloud with varying degrees of probability. They only act as an electron “particle” when they have to act as a particle for some reaction. When this occurs, the PW collapses and the particle is actualized.
One of the headings above asks, “What does this mean for US as individuals?” The short version is this. Our futures exist as a probability wave function (PWF). There are a lot of things that could occur, each with varying degrees of probability. With the moment by moment changes of our present physical “reality”, our consciousness collapses our PWF and we experience the present moment. Our consciousness also influences the changing probabilities of our possible futures. Our emotions, desires, hopes, choices and actions increase the probability of some possibilities and decrease others. In this way our consciousness creates the reality we experience. Wave/particle duality also exists on a macro level in our physical world.
