The Science Behind The Secret: Decoding the Law of Attraction by Travis S. TaylorI thoroughly enjoyed this book. After hearing about the movie and watching it, I ~wanted~ to buy in, but couldnt swallow it despite so many credible people talking about it. Taylor, a NASA scientist, breaks down how quantum physics could be behind the the Secret. Its very accessible and gives the reader a great primer for how he thinks it works while tying in other luminaries in science and philosophy who seem to agree that there is something behind the curtain. I took one star away because I wanted to see more.
The Law of Attraction, for science-heads and Secret-haters
There is a science behind the Law of Attraction. It isn't just some strange law with no factual basis. The Law of Attraction isn't a missing secret, pseudo-science or smoke-and-mirror trick designed to take advantage of people. You can find the basis for the science behind the Law of Attraction in quantum physics, neuroscience and biology. Sometimes studying the science behind the Law of Attraction is like studying science…in a strange language you've never seen before. You can't make heads or tails out of wave theory, parallel realities, or the role you play in the behavior of electrons. So how are you supposed to understand what it has to do with the Law of Attraction and how you can manifest your desires?
Why Are You Doing This?
Quantum Mechanics has shown us that waves become particles when they are observed. For those of us who are interested in a deeper understanding of how the Law of Attraction works, what science has demonstrated is truly exciting. Before taking an in-depth look at how your beliefs affect the quantum field and what this means to you and your life, you first need to understand the basics of The Science Behind the Law of Attraction. Life is full of possibilities, both positive and negative. We attract into our life according to our beliefs. Our beliefs make us who we are. Each of our beliefs has a different energy.
It was at the center of the biggest self-help phenomenon of the last few decades. Now, everyone knows the secret was…The Law Of Attraction. Each one was mesmerizing. Fascinating to watch. They spoke to the impact the law of attraction has had on their lives and the lives of thousands of others. Because, for us to accept something as law, we need proof. It needs to work all the time, regardless of belief, for all the people.
Nobel Prize winning physicists have proven beyond doubt that the physical world is one large sea of energy that flashes into and out of being in milliseconds, over and over again. A movie is a collection of about 24 frames a second. Each frame is separated by a gap. However, because of the speed at which one frame replaces another, our eyes get cheated into thinking that we see a continuous and moving picture. A TV tube is simply a tube with heaps of electrons hitting the screen in a certain way, creating the illusion of form and motion.
