Connection between mind and brain

So once we go into the subatomic level we actually see that the atom is not really an atom.

You know particles change according to their waves and they are particles only when you actually look at them. So it is considered the observer effect.

And it is really interesting because it means that we have these waves of energy and as we make a choice we create reality – which we do – so as you think, feel and choose you change your brain.

Think, feel and choose those three things always go together. Always thinking means you’re always feeling. Thinking and feeling means you’re always choosing.

It’s happening at like 400 billion actions per second constantly so we’re processing this world around us through this think-feel-choose and then we build thoughts so there is this structural consequence. So thought is actually a physical response of the think, feel, choose. And quantum physics is kind of helping us understand that. But quantum physics is real and is easy to understand with classical physics. So classical (physical world) and quantum (the sort of non-physical world) work together.
