Scientific Basics Everyone Should Know

Some scientific theories ought to be common knowledge. For as one theory leads to another, it appears that clarity and the way we perceive the world around us directly affects how we behave and interact. Improved perception = improved behavior. Here are a few scientific concepts that may have a greater implication on our daily living than you might initially imagine.

Having immersed myself into the topic of "energy" as the main source of "influence", my nine year long journey has put me in touch with interesting people and fascinating science. These two, 1) interesting people and 2) fascinating science is something of a phenomenon I'd like to comment on this morning.

Interesting People
First, let me say a few words about "interesting people": To me it has become evident that when you have a clearly defined question that drives you, then a search for answers intuitively results - depending on how forceful that question rings inside your head. (I, for one, discovered I had to quit my job and finish my book in order to satisfy my need to find significant answers.) And when you search for answers, the people who can provide those answers begin to stand out (...mostly because they have and are asking similar questions). In other words, you become as it were "attracted" to a certain type of person with a certain set of experiences and a certain kind of mind set.

I've grown to appreciate that there exists powerful gravity among humans. Thus I'd like to highlight a principle I believe applies to all: We tend to socialise, interact and cluster with people who entertain the same thought patterns and interests similar to our own. In fact, that's exactly why we find one person relatively more interesting than another.

Many of the people I have worked with these past nine years have somehow added value to the questions I have raised. What has been my question? Well, in my quest to explore the subject of influence I have repeatedly asked:

What is influence and how does influence actually work?

As you can tell, my question has been twofold. In turn, these two questions stem from an underlying hypothesis - my assumption - "that people indeed have influenced, are influencing and will influence people".

This also presents a question on a lower level, almost as an extension to the main two questions: "To the degree that people are free to choose for themselves, how does one most effectively influence such choice without infringing on that right of freedom?" Or to rephrase the question possibly adding greater clarity to what I've been so enthusiastically engaged in: "How do we influence without manipulation, and where does that fine line of manipulation go?"

Fascinating Science
The more we dive into a specific subject, the more we discover that everything is related to or connected with everything. For instance, while studying the subject of influence I quickly found myself reading up on topics like human perception (e.g. psychology), light, energy and energy waves, Quantum Mechanics and Heisenberg's principle of uncertainty as well as Einstein's mind blowing theory of relativity.

Instead of writing about these, which I'm by no means qualified to do well, this morning I found a couple of presentations on YouTube that tap into the stuff that has resulted in my finished book "The 3 Energies Behind Sales Success". I hope these media clips contain information that may affect the way you perceive the world around you, as well as trigger a curiosity of how energy is related to everyday communication - on many levels.
