Why a Falling Tree Never Actually Strikes Alfred When He Contextually Creates a Forest

Context-1  I was asked by a subscriber to my Why Quantum Physicists… newsletter, Alfred, why I use the term “contextual creation” when referring to the role we play as creators in our universe.  You’re famous now Alfred!  Take a bow.

I started using the term “contextual creator” while writing my new book, Why Quantum Physicists Play “Grow a Greater You”.  Here’s why:

A Dictionary is Always a Helpful Tool

Let’s start with the definition of  “context”: the circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed.

I use the term “contextual creator” for two primary reasons:

  1. We are not the sole, literal creators of every material experience we have.
  2. We create by having our beliefs reflected back to us from the quantum field.

If a Tree Falls in the Forest and No One is There, It Definitely Wouldn’t Hit Anyone

Reason number one for using the term “contextual creator”:

When many of us are introduced to the idea of intentionally creating our material reality, we might be led to believe that the material world we experience wouldn’t be here is we weren’t here to create it.  Heck, I’ve even been guilty of writing, in response to the old philosophic question “If a tree falls in a forest with no one around does it make a sound?”, “If there is no one there, there is no forest.”

This idea is partially true.  It is true because if you aren’t “here”, the material objects you are experiencing wouldn’t be “here” either.  For you.  They wouldn’t be “here” in your own, unique, individual universe.

But odds are they would be “here” anyway.  Why?  Because other people are contextual creators just like you.  And other people would probably have already contextually created the material objects, whether or not you were “here” to create them in your own, unique, individual universe.

People a Consciousness, Which Means We All Play the Role of Contextual Creator

We all have a consciousness.  And any “thing” which possesses a consciousness plays the role of creator.  Every “thing” with a consciousness collapses the infinite possibilities of the quantum field to form tangible, material objects.

In this manner, we can say that the material world, in a sense, does pre-exist.  It’s all created by us; it’s just not all created, literally, by you.

You are joining the millions and millions of humans who have lived on this planet before you, and who live here with you currently, in contextually creating the material world.  And you are the only one who creates your own, unique, individual universe.  You simply create the material objects in your universe in conjunction with other people who are also creating.

Your Material Reality is Not a Reflection of “You”, It is a Reflection of Your Beliefs

Reason number two for using the term “contextual creator”:

You do not contextually create your own, unique, individual universe from your conscious, top-of-mind desires.  And not from conscious, language-based words, thoughts, or focus either.

You create the material world you experience in your universe in context with your beliefs.  Your material world is a reflection of your beliefs and it is mirror-perfect.  In fact, the quantum field can do nothing else except reflect your beliefs back to you in the form of your material experiences.

Thus you contextually create.  You create what your beliefs dictate.  As opposed to what you want or desire.

Pain is Important Information We Wouldn’t Want to Be Without

Certainly, your beliefs are often aligned with your desires.  So in much of your material experience, you are contextually creating your desires.

But, as you well know, your beliefs are not always aligned with your conscious, top-of-mind desires.  This phenomena is the cause of pain.  And pain is very important and useful feedback for us.

Pain tells us that our beliefs are not aligned with our desires.  Pain, therefore, is your “belief thermometer” – never failing to present you with piercingly accurate feedback about the misalignment of your beliefs and desires.

Your Material World is a Contextually Created Place

So we are “contextual creators”.  Creating the material world in context with our neighbors (and those who preceded us) on this planet.  Our contextual creation of the material world adds energy to the material world, most of which has already been created by other people.  And in so doing, we add our energy to those previous creations.

And we are “contextual creators” in the sense that our creations are a reflection of our beliefs, as opposed to our conscious thoughts and desires.

Knowing this, we can begin to use the feedback we get from our material experiences to guide our game of “Grow a Greater You”.  Any time we are displeased by a material experience we no longer must expend great energy vainly trying to alter, or change, that “thing” in order to be pleased by it.  We can now go directly to the source of our displeasure – our beliefs.  And we can align our beliefs with our desires.

As we raise our beliefs, we always see a different universe.  Because the quantum field will be reflecting our new, more enlightened, aligned beliefs back to us in the form of our material experiences.

You Become an Amazingly Powerful Contextual Creator When You Play “Grow a Greater You”

My books and this website teach you how to contextually create like never before.  Intentionally aligning your beliefs with your desires to see and experience a universe even more pleasing than you might have imagined possible.

I often say “we create” (with adding the word “contextual”) and this is still a proper description.  I like to say “contextually create” more often, however, because it is a great reminder of how we are doing it.

And stay tuned to this website for more tips and techniques to use new paradigms from quantum physics to align your beliefs with your desires and manifest them…

    • Nigel! Thank you for taking the time to share your energy here.

      I am honored you’ve given me an opportunity to be of value to you. Thank you for that gift.

      We know each other personally, of course, so your presence is very affirming. That my message resonates with you is a wonderful present to “unwrap” this morning.

      I’ll value any contributions you make here, as the comments to these posts often become like second, third, fourth, etc. posts.

  1. Yes Im the Alfred that Greg so humorously referred to in this blog article. I decided to ask Greg to clarify what he means by “contextually creating”. Hence, the article above which is so well-written and which clarified the term to my complete satisfaction. I trust that it has also clarified it for other subscribers.

    Although I am hardly new to quantum physics and the law of attraction, it is always a pleasure to be in touch with like-minded individuals who have something special to share in this wonderful arena of consciousness. And Greg is that man. We are lucky to have him.

    Thanks Greg!

    • Alfred! Thank you so much for honored me with an opportunity to be of value to you.

      And thank you for revealing yourself to everyone else.

      I’m grateful for your inspiration; we have you to thank for this post, my friend. I am only “that man” in your universe because you decided it was so.

      And how amazing that you’re a painter. You contextually create and literally create!

      I look forward to hearing more from you; we are a community of like-minded individuals, indeed.

      • I had the comments sent to my email to remind me to visit your blog and perhaps post some thoughts on occasion. Thanks for visiting my website and for your comment. Don’t think there’s any relation to Frank but who knows. We’re all related on some level anyway.

        • I love painters. My wife is my favorite.

          I use painters to illustrate contextual and literal creation in my new book.

          Thanks for the reminder that we’re all really the same thing. At our core, who we really are, is the quantum field. The separateness is the greatest illusion in the universe.

  2. I’m content with the books and your follow-up comments; I would appreciate, however, more examples in what you say, to illustrate the points you make. Going from your words to our thoughts, then back to our creations, keeping straight who/what does what/when does get confusing — especially when we get into things like the two slot experiments, for instance. [of course my being 78 years old, and having issues with diet through out my life without realizing that GLUTEN was causing my wife, my friends, and my doctors think I had Alzheimer’s … thankfully, stopping ALL grains stopped all confusion, in my case. My doctors (all of whom swore that I had Alzheimer’s, then saw ALL the symptoms TOTALLY disappear when I simply eliminated ALL gluten from my life.

    So,onward and upward toward awareness enhanced consciousness.!

    • Hello Don. Nice to hear from you. Thank you for the opportunity to be of value to you.

      I’m proud that you’re seeing changes and don’t doubt for a moment that you’ve see improvements in many areas of your life. Thank you for sharing them.

      Your request for more examples is noted and I’ll keep that in mind. Thanks for the suggestion, my friend.

  3. Just one more teeny tiny comment: some folks tend to NOT BELIEVE people who misspell words or use the wrong idioms in their statements/descriptions, etc., so, beware of comments like “we might be lead to believe” when you mean “don’t be ‘led’ to believe [it’s good that folks are not ‘lead’ in this case since it’s rather poisonous to their systems]
    Thanks for all you do. Don

    • Thank you, Don. I fixed the typo.

      Does kind of change the meaning when those things slip through via spell check, doesn’t it?
