For that matter how do we know we haven’t? (Check out the movie Dark City if you’ve never seen it)
Science has finally reached a stage where it is widely accepted that the physical world is not in fact “Physical” at all. It’s made of atoms which are made of subatomic particles that are essentially 99.99999999% empty space.
You may be 70% water, but everything is basically empty space surrounded by an electromagnetic field. According to Rupert Sheldrake it is the Morphic field of the consciousness. The mind. What’s funny is that the Kybalion says the same thing. In fact it says that everything is the result of Mental forces.
Yet still we seem stuck in this knocks on wood solid and manifested world. If even a small fraction of the occult knowledge I’ve studied is right. If even a shred of the scientific evidence is fight… Then we should, theoretically, be able to fly, shapeshift, conjur and throw fireballs and imagine bars of gold into existence. Hell we could all become like the Q continuum in an instant if we all awakened at once… So why do we need these complex rituals? What part do they pay in the grand scheme.
Why are people not just POOF becoming Gods? For me it’s no question any longer. It’s going to happen sooner or later. Then once someone does break that barrier and literally becomes a God (According to some ancient stories, not just that of Jesus Christ, it has happened more than once already) then it becomes easier with each following magician making the transition.
The best I can figure is that we are too caught up in this world. We are used to a certain brand of continuity, physicality, reality and causality, but the only real constant is change… So sooner or later someone is going to go Super Saiyan and start an inevitable domino effect. Possibly soon.
According to quantum physics reality as we know it takes the path of least resistance and manifests the most likely outcome according to everything else the moment before it. A copy that potentially breaks off into countless quantum wave functions and reality templates that rinse lather and repeat outward in 4 dimensional pattern.
However science also shows that intention and mental forces effect the material world such as in the quantum double split and Emotto’s experiments with water.
The truth of things are indeed strange truths. Hell, it very well could be that this moment is the only moment and therefore you already are a God, I am already a God and it becomes a matter of accepting it and cracking the code to step into that form. Although there is another probability:
Someone has already done it and they are keeping it quiet. Perhaps even more than one, hundreds, thousands… I have thought a lot about many angles of this idea.
