  My life is ending. My love, Curiosity and I are running through a forest. We are being hunted, I am not sure why but we are. Alas a river, and to my left I see a ledge. I will die by my own hand before I let them kill me. I jump down a 100 yard waterfall! I am falling! I am losing consciousness, and suddenly white is all I see white noise is all I hear. I am alone, and this is the last memory of my life. 

         A new day has come I find myself in a place not like anything I have ever seen or felt before. I am here yet I am not. I have a place to be but i am not sure as to why. I am heading towards my destination, because my instincts tell me to. First down a long road i go and next up a gigantic mountain. My long journey is over yet only took moments at the same time. I am now at my dwelling. There is a small plaque that is inscribed with the words REGIA MORTUORUM. Time stands still.


       Im not sure why I still remember all of this, or if its another mistake by writing this all down for someone to find one day. I have already messed things up enough hopefully when you read this it will help set things right. 


       What I find inside is not what  would of expected to find. I do realize that my physical life is over. This place isn't exactly the hanging gardens as I had expected. As I enter the building I find a waiting room with other beings that aren't man nor beast they are just a form of matter. I assume I am also like this for I do not remember if I am man or woman. Adult or a child. I am just one. Adjacent to the waiting room are several other rooms. From what I can see on of them, a judgment room with a movie theater. The others  laboratories of some sort.  I am told to go into the theater and it is time for me to be evaluated. 


 After my life evaluation my destiny is laid out on the stars. All the answers were told  by the whisper of the trees and the memory of the water. The supreme being decides its back to earth with me to try again but not just yet. I am to stay here for some time, and learn.


     Eventually I am exposed to some of the secrets of the universe. I learn that currently I am in a different galaxy unknown to mankind. Although my physical body was left behind in the river a part of me was brought here with a  light powered by the natural elements of  mother earth. There is more than what meets the eye in my physical world. My world is just a micro organism compared to theirs. I found time and space is undefined and unfortunately no one can know the true answer because then we would cease to exist. Some of the laboratories that were adjacent to the waiting room were also what they called "In Quantumus Cella'. This is where most  technology came from for gods and mankind alike. Ultimately we are one, only my world is much smaller than theirs. They also were recording the memory of water, how plants listen, and how to protect the secrets of the universe.


   The whole point of the sorting process was to create a perfect world. A heaven on earth more or less. This has been going on since the beginning of time, and they are continuing to perfect the system. If you were a saint you carry on to the next stage. If you still have life lessons to learn you return back to earth. Evolution is a part of this process as Well


      Time comes to pass to return back to the physical world Earth. I am now waiting on the celestial body of departure here I find Curiosity, my long lost love. We run amok and love every moment of it. We were so happy. Although I have no memory of our life together we both know we are soul-mates, but now the time has come to live again. Two options are given to me, none of which includes Curiosity. When things are all set to go but I feel i can not live life without my one true  love. In the last moments I remove myself from my place and I choose a spot next to Curiosity, with this we will know our paths will cross in life once again. We ascend back to earth across the astral plane. 


     I still have the memory of the last moments of a life long past, or else i wouldn't be writing this for someone to find. Currently the world around me as I know it is crumbling. Quite swiftly in a downward spiral. Curiosity is here but is not close. How could I of been so selfish. The natural order of things has been disrupted. I look at the world around me at all the pain the fear and the doubt, and start to remember what life was all about. 

About the Author: 
Not much to say about me except I like to write. Poems stories, letters, you name it. I took my own beliefs, dreams, and thoughts that is how my little story was born The reference to the water having a memory inspired by Masaru Emoto an energy scholar in Japan.

Quantum Theories

T is for ... Tunnelling

This happens when quantum objects “borrow” energy in order to bypass an obstacle such as a gap in an electrical circuit. It is possible thanks to the uncertainty principle, and enables quantum particles to do things other particles can’t.

C is for ... Computing

The rules of the quantum world mean that we can process information much faster than is possible using the computers we use now.

H is for ... Hidden Variables

One school of thought says that the strangeness of quantum theory can be put down to a lack of information; if we could find the “hidden variables” the mysteries would all go away.

W is for ... Wavefunction

The mathematics of quantum theory associates each quantum object with a wavefunction that appears in the Schrödinger equation and gives the probability of finding it in any given state.

A is for ... Atom

This is the basic building block of matter that creates the world of chemical elements – although it is made up of more fundamental particles.

V is for ... Virtual particles

Quantum theory’s uncertainty principle says that since not even empty space can have zero energy, the universe is fizzing with particle-antiparticle pairs that pop in and out of existence. These “virtual” particles are the source of Hawking radiation.

I is for ... Interferometer

Some of the strangest characteristics of quantum theory can be demonstrated by firing a photon into an interferometer: the device’s output is a pattern that can only be explained by the photon passing simultaneously through two widely-separated slits.

T is for ... Teleportation

Quantum tricks allow a particle to be transported from one location to another without passing through the intervening space – or that’s how it appears. The reality is that the process is more like faxing, where the information held by one particle is written onto a distant particle.

E is for ... Entanglement

When two quantum objects interact, the information they contain becomes shared. This can result in a kind of link between them, where an action performed on one will affect the outcome of an action performed on the other. This “entanglement” applies even if the two particles are half a universe apart.

B is for ... Bell's Theorem

In 1964, John Bell came up with a way of testing whether quantum theory was a true reflection of reality. In 1982, the results came in – and the world has never been the same since!

M is for ... Multiverse

Our most successful theories of cosmology suggest that our universe is one of many universes that bubble off from one another. It’s not clear whether it will ever be possible to detect these other universes.

I is for ... Information

Many researchers working in quantum theory believe that information is the most fundamental building block of reality.

R is for ... Reality

Since the predictions of quantum theory have been right in every experiment ever done, many researchers think it is the best guide we have to the nature of reality. Unfortunately, that still leaves room for plenty of ideas about what reality really is!

D is for ... Decoherence

Unless it is carefully isolated, a quantum system will “leak” information into its surroundings. This can destroy delicate states such as superposition and entanglement.

L is for ... Light

We used to believe light was a wave, then we discovered it had the properties of a particle that we call a photon. Now we know it, like all elementary quantum objects, is both a wave and a particle!

X is for ... X-ray

In 1923 Arthur Compton shone X-rays onto a block of graphite and found that they bounced off with their energy reduced exactly as would be expected if they were composed of particles colliding with electrons in the graphite. This was the first indication of radiation’s particle-like nature.

G is for ... Gluon

These elementary particles hold together the quarks that lie at the heart of matter.

O is for ... Objective reality

Niels Bohr, one of the founding fathers of quantum physics, said there is no such thing as objective reality. All we can talk about, he said, is the results of measurements we make.

N is for ... Nonlocality

When two quantum particles are entangled, it can also be said they are “nonlocal”: their physical proximity does not affect the way their quantum states are linked.

A is for ... Alice and Bob

In quantum experiments, these are the names traditionally given to the people transmitting and receiving information. In quantum cryptography, an eavesdropper called Eve tries to intercept the information.

B is for ... Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC)

At extremely low temperatures, quantum rules mean that atoms can come together and behave as if they are one giant super-atom.

R is for ... Radioactivity

The atoms of a radioactive substance break apart, emitting particles. It is impossible to predict when the next particle will be emitted as it happens at random. All we can do is give the probability that any particular atom will have decayed by a given time.

K is for ... Kaon

These are particles that carry a quantum property called strangeness. Some fundamental particles have the property known as charm!

Y is for ... Young's Double Slit Experiment

In 1801, Thomas Young proved light was a wave, and overthrew Newton’s idea that light was a “corpuscle”.

G is for ... Gravity

Our best theory of gravity no longer belongs to Isaac Newton. It’s Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity. There’s just one problem: it is incompatible with quantum theory. The effort to tie the two together provides the greatest challenge to physics in the 21st century.

L is for ... Large Hadron Collider (LHC)

At CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, this machine is smashing apart particles in order to discover their constituent parts and the quantum laws that govern their behaviour.

D is for ... Dice

Albert Einstein decided quantum theory couldn’t be right because its reliance on probability means everything is a result of chance. “God doesn’t play dice with the world,” he said.

P is for ... Planck's Constant

This is one of the universal constants of nature, and relates the energy of a single quantum of radiation to its frequency. It is central to quantum theory and appears in many important formulae, including the Schrödinger Equation.

W is for ... Wave-particle duality

It is possible to describe an atom, an electron, or a photon as either a wave or a particle. In reality, they are both: a wave and a particle.

Q is for ... Qubit

One quantum bit of information is known as a qubit (pronounced Q-bit). The ability of quantum particles to exist in many different states at once means a single quantum object can represent multiple qubits at once, opening up the possibility of extremely fast information processing.

C is for ... Cryptography

People have been hiding information in messages for millennia, but the quantum world provides a whole new way to do it.

S is for ... Schrödinger Equation

This is the central equation of quantum theory, and describes how any quantum system will behave, and how its observable qualities are likely to manifest in an experiment.

F is for ... Free Will

Ideas at the heart of quantum theory, to do with randomness and the character of the molecules that make up the physical matter of our brains, lead some researchers to suggest humans can’t have free will.

P is for ... Probability

Quantum mechanics is a probabilistic theory: it does not give definite answers, but only the probability that an experiment will come up with a particular answer. This was the source of Einstein’s objection that God “does not play dice” with the universe.

J is for ... Josephson Junction

This is a narrow constriction in a ring of superconductor. Current can only move around the ring because of quantum laws; the apparatus provides a neat way to investigate the properties of quantum mechanics.

R is for ... Randomness

Unpredictability lies at the heart of quantum mechanics. It bothered Einstein, but it also bothers the Dalai Lama.

U is for ... Uncertainty Principle

One of the most famous ideas in science, this declares that it is impossible to know all the physical attributes of a quantum particle or system simultaneously.

M is for ... Many Worlds Theory

Some researchers think the best way to explain the strange characteristics of the quantum world is to allow that each quantum event creates a new universe.

S is for ... Superposition

Quantum objects can exist in two or more states at once: an electron in superposition, for example, can simultaneously move clockwise and anticlockwise around a ring-shaped conductor.

S is for ... Schrödinger’s Cat

A hypothetical experiment in which a cat kept in a closed box can be alive and dead at the same time – as long as nobody lifts the lid to take a look.

U is for ... Universe

To many researchers, the universe behaves like a gigantic quantum computer that is busy processing all the information it contains.

Q is for ... Quantum biology

A new and growing field that explores whether many biological processes depend on uniquely quantum processes to work. Under particular scrutiny at the moment are photosynthesis, smell and the navigation of migratory birds.

Z is for ... Zero-point energy

Even at absolute zero, the lowest temperature possible, nothing has zero energy. In these conditions, particles and fields are in their lowest energy state, with an energy proportional to Planck’s constant.

A is for ... Act of observation

Some people believe this changes everything in the quantum world, even bringing things into existence.

H is for ... Hawking Radiation

In 1975, Stephen Hawking showed that the principles of quantum mechanics would mean that a black hole emits a slow stream of particles and would eventually evaporate.
