One of the things I found interesting in this research was the nature of light. The speed of light, which is 186,000 miles per second, is thought to be the fastest speed possible in the universe. Yet, light has both a particle-like nature and a wave-like nature. Unlike sound waves which bounce from one air molecule to another as they make their way from one person’s mouth to another person’s ear, light waves traveling from the sun to the earth do not have anything to move through. There is nothing but empty space between the sun and earth. It was as if light really didn’t exist, but we know that is not true when we look up at the sky on a bright sunny day. In fact, without the light from the sun, life on earth is impossible.

When light is measured as a particle, it’s called a photon. Various experiments involving particle physics were aimed at smashing particles into one another at high speed and measuring the results. In some experiments, electrons collide and are annihilated, and the collision results in the release of a photon of light. In other super high-speed collision experiments, particles are seen to disappear, and anti-particles appear out of nowhere.

I had several meditation experiences involving light, and in those experiences I found that light does not travel as waves or particles from point A to point B. Instead, expanding basketball universes travel with light as part of the pattern of reality.
