The Physics Of Rock & Roll

In a previous blog post I tried to make a case for the music of the Sixties changing the world of today. One of the things I attributed to the music was Quantum Physics. Before I get flack from fans of The Big Bang series allow me to explain.

There is a gentleman by the name of Rick Stack. Rick is considered the ultimate authority on Jane Roberts and her "alter-ego", a channeled personality named Seth. Seth's teachings (through Jane) are considered to be the basis for the New Age Movement.

Rick Stack and his friends back in the early Seventies, when they were in their early twenties, attended Jane's Seth sessions. He describes himself and his friends as having been "long haired hippies". I'm not going to accuse Rick Stack of having taken drugs in his youth, however, marijuana smoking was a part of being a "long haired hippie" in the Sixties and pot does have a way of opening your mind to new ideas. Another large part of being a hippie was being a rock and roll music fan.

In the course of someone like Rick eventually becoming the caretaker of the legacy of the "Grandfather of the New Age Movement (Seth)", the attraction to music would most likely have come first, then the long hair, then the drugs, then the interest in metaphysics which would have lead to Seth.

Let me illustrate how this might have worked:

* You discover The Beatles and like their music.

* You discover and like the music of the other bands contemporary with The Beatles and become a fan.

* You assume the lifestyle of the fans (long hair, colorful clothes, smoking grass, etc.) which leads to;

* The music (Strawberry Fields Forever, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, I Am The Walrus, Tomorrow Never Knows, etc.) leads to curiosity about psychedelics (LSD. Psilocybin, Mescaline) which leads to;

* Experimentation with psychedelic drugs which leads to a desire to learn about them (Tim Leary, Carlos Castaneda, etc. ) which leads to;

* Curiosity about the "Hidden Universe" and metaphysics (Alan Watts, Ram Dass, etc.) which leads to;

* Experimentation with Transcendental Meditation, Yoga and Eastern and ancient teachings and practices which leads to;

* A desire to understand the mechanics behind physical reality and metaphysics (Seth Material, New Age teachings) which leads to;  

* The study of Physics which leads to research in  QUANTUM PHYSICS.

Now, certainly not all physicists traveled this road, there are other roads. For instance, replace THE BEATLES with SCIENCE FICTION (Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Phillip K. Dick, Isaac Asimov, etc.), replace PSYCHEDELICS with THE TWILIGHT ZONE (One Step Beyond, The Outer Limits, etc.),
replace NEW AGE with STAR TREK (The Matrix, Groundhog's Day, etc.) and you'll probably end up in college as a Physics major.

Before you start complaining that I have no business writing about Physics I'll have you know I received an "A" in Physics at California State University San Diego.



Okay, I was  in the Physics class just to make holograms but I did get an "A"!
