The Difference in Physical and Non-Physical

Many people get tricked into thinking that things are physical because we can measure them It seems. Brain waves for example. We may measure the brain in terms of ECG's or electrocardiographs and MRI's. However what we are measuring or trying to perceive within the mind or brain is the energies of the mind or brain. The MRI or magnetic resonance imagine works because it is designed to read or pick up on energy. But what is energy? Do you believe it to be physical?

There are things around us which we can measure but cannot physically touch. Things which appear to have form but not substance. Space-time is a good example of this. But just because a thing can be measured doesn't necessarily mean it's physical.

Many people mistake physical for meaning 'real'. But, what is real? If a thing isn't known, a thing isn't known. CERN is discovering and producing previously unknown scientific results right now. Would you also say that because a thing doesn't yet exist or rather, knowledge of a thing such as proton particle collisions, then by virtue of not knowing or being able to observe directly it doesn't exist?

"If a tree fall's in the forest, and no one is around to see it, does it make a sound?"

To me, physical is substance. This usually equates to touch. However I cannot touch space-time, yet we still measure it. Space-time is decidedly non-physical, yet it still exists and is apparently a kind of medium, like air or water would be on earth, in which the entire universe resides in.

Space-time, I would say, is energy, where pure energy, is non-physical.

Furthermore, it seems true to me that what you call physical is just a phenomena or property of pure energy since that is what all matter in the universe is reducible to.

In a black hole for example:

The black hole is said to be the twisting of the non-physical substance, Space-time.

This is said to cause extreme gravitational distortions where 'extreme' is an understatement.

The "Gravity" of space-time is sufficiently strong to attract all known matter and energy in the universe. Nothing can resist it's power so far as we know.

However energy, in the form of ultra high intensity Gamma waves, are emitted from the black hole.

"Gamma rays (denoted as γ) are electromagnetic radiation of high frequency (very short wavelength). They are produced by sub-atomic particle interactions such as electron-positron annihilation, neutral pion decay, radioactive decay, fusion, fission or inverse Compton scattering in astrophysical processes."Gamma ray - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the picture above, the sphere's composed together are said to represent matter while the waves emanating from them in the form of gamma ray is said to be non-physical pure energy.

The pattern of this energy, is represented by the wavy line. The line itself doesn't actually exist in any form, it's just what we would see if we could see it in a sense. Like the pattern the energy seems to follow or oscillate on. String theory for example, says that all matter is an oscillating string, which I think is pretty much the same as saying it's a wave but a wave is just oscillating energy that we detect by it's effect on physical matter that we "see" intimately.

Space-time represents itself as waves and folds in mediums. For example, the ocean is a medium or collection of salty water and has strong wave properties. Likewise, space is a medium of sorts that also has the wave property. A black hole for example, is the twisting of space in on itself and so has a wave or spiral pattern. Matter entering the black hole follows the course of this pattern, traveling down deeper into the black hole as it spirals around and around.

The pattern observed however, is apparently similar to this:

Which also looks a lot like these "ordinary" or common things:

When a scientist looks at a wave and determines that it is non physical energy, he is just as baffled as anyone who would do the same. There is no concise theory to explain the pattern observed on every level of reality called the wave or spiral as it is a complete mystery we have yet to solve.

All we know is that the wave is like vibrations or oscillations and that it is a property of all matter-energy known in the universe including human beings and human thought.

Thought or consciousness itself can be likewise considered a pure kind of energy whose various wave patterns or oscillations are attributed to different thoughts or ideas.

Mostly though, the point is that physics is really really strange that many times don't make a whole hell of a lot of sense. All the good theories used to explain is riddled with paradox's and contradictions so essentially, we can't really say we know much about anything. Physics is good, but it hasn't yet been able to solve or deal with these problems so we must also rely on other ideas and fields of study.

Oddly enough, the fields of study we typically rely on are perceived complements or even opposites of physics, like religion and philosophy.

Eventually, as a result, I expect that science and divinity will become unified in a sense... a kind of divine science if you will. Once minds are open/been made aware that is. I believe we are very close to achieving this as it is, we just need to "connect the dots".
