Unified Field Theory: Are We Part of a Connected Universe?

Listening to scientist Nassim Haramein talk is quite a trip. I expected something about quantum physics (yeah, I know about as much about them as you do) or equations that I didn’t understand. And I got plenty of both. Let’s take a look at his Unified Field Theory and the Connected Universe together.

I want to try and unpack the ideas of this documentary in a way that makes sense to people that, like myself, don’t really do the whole “science lingo” thing. So here goes!

Nassim Haramein is a controversial scientist that has put forward some ideas that really run against the scientific community’s idea of how that universe works. The connected universe. His basic treatise is that the universe and consciousness of people, which have always been seen as separate entities, are actually part of the same system. Yeah, that didn’t make sense to me either when I first heard it! So let’s explore that idea a bit.

This idea of the Unified Field Theory, as it is officially known, was first suggested by Einstein, who never gave a proof for it before he died. Scientists on the fringes of the physics community have put forward all kinds of suggestions, but no one has offered a definitive proof for the connected universe theory, because it still is a theroy for now.

The Unified Field Theory

The biggest part of the Unified Field Theory is that the ideas we have about the way forces are transmitted is all wrong. The theory suggests that forces are not applied between objects. For example, when you push the ‘+’ end of a magnet to the ‘+’ end of another magnet, they repel. Scientists have in the past (to put it VERY simply) that magnets repel each other because of something about the magnet. In other words, the magnet itself repels the other magnet.

The Unified Field Theory suggests instead that literal “force fields” are what repels the magnets from each other, and those forces have little-to-nothing to do with each other or the magnet. This is the more widely accepted part of his theories. The others are a bit more controversial.

Black Holes

Scientists have for years believed in what’s called the “nuclear strong force,” which is what holds the nuclei of atoms together. Atoms are made of magnetic charges that are the same, so by all logic they should repel. Scientists believe that there is a force called the nuclear strong force that holds them all together, even with opposing charges. Haramein instead believes that there are small black holes in the center of atoms that hold everything together. His proof for that is here. The last part of this theory seeks to reconcile mysticism and physics.

Pyramids, Physics, and the Connected Universe Theory

Here’s the part of the theory that mainstream science doesn’t know what to do with. Nassim Haramein believes that there is a connecting force between every type of particle and atom in the universe, and that is consciousness. A connected universe of consciousness. By this he doesn’t mean a god; if it must be compared to any religion, it’s more like chi. This consciousness existed before the Big Bang, according to theory. The consciousness is what gives people a belief in the mystic, gives a faster than light connection to particles and helped build the pyramids. I’m not 100% sure about that last one, but the others have some scientific evidence. He does believe that our world was built by a more advanced civilization, but there is little outside evidence for that so far and it is very difficult to prove that objectively.

He offers a proof that we live in a connected Universe because particles were able to transmit information from astounding distances and it was the same, intact information. His proof for that is here. There is no reason that particles should be connected, but they are. His theory is one way of explaining why. He also explains that that is why so many cultures have similar religious ideas and develop in many of the same ways; because we are all connected on a subatomic level that we can’t fully understand. We don’t know (and he doesn’t either) the full effects of this connection, but it does attempt to address the metaphysical aspect of science that most scientists avoid like the plague.

To Believe… Or Not?

Even if you don’t believe in his ideas, his attempt to marry unprovable data (so far) with the fairly well-established physics field is laudable. There ARE phenomena that go outside of mainstream science, and people that dabble in them are almost universally mocked. However, we’ve explained things that seemed like the acts of gods before. And we’re still trying to do that now.
