Space and Time.

In 1916, Albert Einstein published his General Theory of Relativity. In it, he took a theory originally put forth by Galileo, back in the day (that of relative motion), and one of Newton’s laws of gravity from not so back, yet still back in the day, and combined them to say, to a point, that the motion or movement of space and time (and therefore everything in it) is contingent of the massive bodies interacting with said space and time. . . Got it? There will be a quiz.

I think Einstein was a genius. Well, not just me – a lot of people do. I also think Einstein’s theories can, and should, be applied to non-material things. What’s that you say? A theory based on the matter of an object being used to describe a non-matter issue? Just who the hell do you think you are? (This is me conversing with myself, Jenniphur.)

When two people cross paths, they are, as Newton showed, attracted to one another. That is physics. You would be hard pressed to deny that happens. The sheer existence of body creates a gravitational attraction. What about other types of attraction? Is that physics? Why not? What is it that causes attraction? Is it not a phenomenon that we have all experienced at least once? So, my thought is that the attraction we feel for someone is directly related to the same principles of time and space. Firstly, you all know I am an advocate of polyamory, right? That being said, I feel we are all connected to each other in numerous ways. Now listen – Newton made it perfectly clear that all bodies are attracted to each other. Nothing can be done about that. He also said that the distance between those bodies affects the FORCE by which they are attracted. In fact, I will write it here. Newton’s inverse square law states: “the force of gravitational attraction between two bodies decreases with increasing distance between them as the inverse of the square of that distance, so if the distance is doubled, the force is down by a factor of four.” (The closer together, the stronger the attraction, and vice versa.)

That means, for my argument, if you are emotionally, physically or spiritually attracted to another person, and you drift apart, in space and/or time – that attraction gets lesser.  For example, one can still be in close physical proximity to another (space) but drift away . . . (time). It is unfortunate, but it happens. AND – unless something happens on the outside, to cause that motion to change, we will continue to drift apart endlessly.  There are plenty of couples who are “together” but are not together. . .

Another example, Person X is drawn to person Y in a non-physics (gravitational pull) kind of way. They get along, they spend time together, etc. . . Then, they begin to drift. After a lapse of time OR space, the drift gets wider. Newton said all objects in motion will continue in motion unless acted upon by an outer force. . . This just adds to the idea being presented here.  What if person X and Y drift away in both space and time?  Then they meet up again, say, a decade later? Both space and time have come full circle, putting them back in each others’ path. The connection may still be there, because the laws have not been broken. In fact, they are upheld – an outside force necessitated a change (in this case the change was putting these bodies back together.) This then creates an attraction being upheld by both space and time. In fact – these people can even lose the physical proximity, but maintain a connection only on the time level (or the other way around) and still abide by the laws of physics. I say do not fight the laws. You won’t win.

Hmmmm . . .

On that note, I am retiring for the evening. Good night, Albert.

  1. Huh. Gonna have to think on this one for a bit. Are you talking specifically here for yourself or in general?

  2. Great post!

    I’ve been interested in personal energy and physics for a while and agree with what you are saying.

    Another way to put it might be in terms of individual energy signatures. We are energy in physical form and each person’s energy signature is affected by physical, emotional, and spiritual characteristics. The more compatible two individuals’ signatures are, the stronger the attraction and the better the relationship. When the signature changes due to shifts in physical, emotion, mental, or spiritual makeup, the compatibility shifts which can cause more or less distancing.

    I suppose the attraction can also happen if say, your signature fills a gap in mine. A sort of negative attraction. I suspect we all have gaps. Perhaps the criticality of the gap determines how well and for how long can we fill the gap for another. Having two people together who are aware of this process could be interesting.

    I agree that this is not affected by time and space. In fact, the connections are always there, but our ability to perceive beyond time and physical space is not well developed, so we still depend on physical means to stay in touch. As the human species evolves, perhaps this will change. Distance Reiki is one form of energy work I know of that transcends time and space. It works.

    Thanks for this post. It’s a fascinating subject.

  3. SML – Both. I believe this for myself, obviously, and consequently, for everyone else. Contemplate and get back to me. ;)

    Lynnski – You rock. Thank you.

  4. EXCELLENT post.

    Let’s take this a little further. Attraction/gravity is physics-based. All things that exist have mass. All things. Some things we (humans) haven’t/can’t measure yet – the weight of a lightning strike or collision of two black holes, the color of a memory. Everything in the universe is one form of energy or another. Time and space are constructs that attempt to measure matter, which is matter, which is energy, which are all variants of light. Think of our vocabulary when relationships are described: “light” (as in not heavy), “heavy” (as in not light), “energizing”, “polarizing”, “negative”, “positive”, etc. Think of the phrase, the “weight of a stare”.

    Quantum physics as applied to relationships and attractions make a lot of sense. Our attractions are the notes, songs, silences, or symphonies of our interactions.

    I’m highly tempted to listen to Moby’s “We are all made of stars.”

  6. The Secret movie was an awesome example of how the law of attraction can summon the universal powers to manifest people situations and material things into your life.

    All of the presenters had compelling stories that described in detail how their lives changed once they applied the secret principals.

    I watched the movie several times only to discover the secret was never revealed nor did they explain how to actually make the law of attraction work in your favor.

    I searched for a year and finally discovered exactly how the secret law of attraction works.

    Anybody can put the principals to work for them and change their life dramatically in a short period of time.

    It’s true, they are laws and they work all the time but its your choice to make them work for you and not against you.
