What Quiff Are You Poppin?

poppin the quiff with Fred Alan WolfI’m in mad love with Fred Alan Wolf.

He presents challenging concepts in a down to earth, easy to grasp way.

And is funny in the process!

Including his description of how our consciousness transforms quantum wave functions into the particles and atoms that make up physical reality as we know it.

He calls it “poppin’ the quiff.”

Quiff short for “quantum wave function.”  (QWF – get it?)

Here’s Dr. Wolf explaining it (at 1:45 minutes in) to someone who gets this stuff about as well as I do, I think:

Although there is controversy among quantum physicists in extrapolating what we see on the quantum level to life on a bigger level, it fits in with what we deliberate creators have learned about manifesting our reality.

Instead of being able to pinpoint the building blocks of life as microscopic “things” that are easy to understand and predict; rather what scientists found were “waves of possibilities” also described as “vibrating energy packets.”

It seems these “quantum waves” remained in that state until someone took a measurement of them. Until an observer showed up.

That act of observation, or the influence of consciousness (as some argue), is what transforms possibility into reality.

So we have before us all possibilities, and we draw forth a particular possibility by focusing on it. That “pops the quiff” – the quantum wave function – into the “prickly particles” we know as “reality.”

If we truly understood that anything is possible, and that all we have to do is choose it in order to experience it, I have a feeling we’d get a little more open – maybe even wild and creative – about what we choose.

Because all the possibilities are there. As quantum wave functions. Just waiting for us to “pop” them into reality through our awareness and observation.

Pretty cool way of thinking about it, huh?!

So the obvious question for the deliberate creator becomes: what quiff are you poppin today?

    FAW is a laughable crackpot who completely misrepresents quantum physics in silly junky books aimed at new-age nutters for MONEY. The QWF is a mere mathematical abstraction and absolutely nothing about quantum physics contradicts the ordinary scientific-realist materialist, factual reality that is the hard-won extrapolation of good human sense in the natural and completely objective world.
    If we knew nothing of physics, had no consciousness or never even existed, the Universe would be exactly the same as we see know it. The Universe exists independently of human thought. FAW is a fraud.

    I am a fan of Mr Wolfe too, and thanx for heads up on Galileo’s Dream, will have to go read that now!!!

  • Amanda says:

    “God is a circle with a centre everywhere and a circumference nowhere.” equally mind-blowing and quiff popping.

  • Mariëlle says:

    I love this stuff as well! And have been watching ‘What the bleep down the rabbit hole’ the last few days even before I read this blog. I love Alan too and I also love the scientific explanation of the Law of Attraction.
    I so believe that every possible reality already exists (by our asking for it) and that they’re just waiting for us to be experienced whenever we are ready to adjust our signal to them.
    It get’s me really excited to just throw out all boundries and current reality and start over with a clean slate and ponder whatever I’d like to experience. It gives a vibrational kick that rushes through my body… Mmmmm…
    Even though we can’t see it yet doesn’t mean we can’t feel it. And when we can feel it. It is definitely real for me!
    (Even writing this gives me riples all over my body. Yay, I love focusing without limitations.)

  • Glad to hear it inspired a “Yippiee” for you, Monika! 🙂

  • M(onika) says:

    Yippiee, just what I needed today! Thanks bunches, Jeannette! <3

  • “Poppin’ abundance” – no mystery why I like your style so much, Ryan.
    From what I’ve read on your blog, you do pop that particular quiff very nicely! Thanks for posting here, Ryan!

  • Ryan Biddulph says:

    Hi Jeannette,
    Man that guy is cool. I remember Fred Alan Wolf from The Secret, he has a knack for taking the unexplainable and making it….explainable 🙂
    As for the quiff I’m poppin, abundance. That’s where the attention’s focused.
    Thanks for sharing with us!

  • That’s about the best summary of the whole process I’ve ever read, Nancy!!
    Actually, YOUR book is one I’d love to read! You also have a gift for making high level thinking very easy to embrace.

  • Well, Jeannette, you already know I love this stuff! I had learned about some of this stuff back in the 80s, but it took until the mid-2000s for scientists to make it more understandable. Yes, my life has shifted when I realized that it’s not just fairy tales to say anything is possible. Who knew I was popping the Quiff?!?
    Fred says, “When you observe, things happen. When you don’t, they don’t”…that’s basically what Abraham has been telling us when they’ve said “…give your attention only to that which you desire to experience!”
    Humans communicate with the QWF, which permeates *everything*, through the emotions we broadcast from our heart, the largest generator of electro-magnetic field (which literally can change atoms) in the body.
    Many blessings,

  • Sheesh, Angela, I’m feeling so late to this party! The 80’s?!?! Well, better late than never, I guess.
    Loving your thought that “time is a continuum” is a widely accepted premise. Very cool!
    Thanks for reading and for sharing your thoughts here.

  • Jennifer, I read Parallel Universes when it first came out in the late 80s. It was mind blowing then and hard to wrap the head around, but now I think the idea that time is a continuum and that the past and future are just constructs is widely accepted. it’s the only book of his I’ve ever attempted to read. But from what I know of Wolf’s ideas and quantum physics generally, his theories are slowly becoming more accepted. He is proving what many ancient cultures spoke of and later recorded in texts like the Upanishads.
    Thanks for sharing this fascinating video with us.

  • I didn’t know that song till you shared it here, Suzie – thanks for it!
    Loved your blog post on the topic

  • Suzie Cheel says:

    Love it= it’s our godself and it’s in everyone of us- so that brought back the song of the same name by David Pomeranz. I song that takes me back in time to when I embarked in this journey to my godself
    So what quiff I am popping today? The choice to step up is one i am freeing today
    Thanks for your inspiration

  • Allen Loomis says:

    You have a great blog here, I love the content and the design! I am a self improvement blogger as well, and was wondering if you would be interested in exchanging links? If so please comment back on my blog and let me know! My readers would love your content, and I would love to share the traffic!

  • Thanks for checking in, Allen – I’ll be happy to check out your blog!

  • In all fairness, Anita, I had seen a much longer clip of Fred’s interview (in What The Bleep’s further down the rabbit hole extended version) that I watched a couple times before it really started to click. And I had been watching lots of Gregg Braden lately on YouTube (thanks to Nancy who shared the clips with us at GVU).
    So … I think I have a seat in the back of the room next to you. 🙂

  • Anita says:

    Huh? Is it the beers? Huh? again.
    : ]
    ya mean someone’s actually gettin this?
    Methinks it’s time for another episode
    of How I Met Your Mother.
    I feel like like the troublemaker
    sitting in back of the class : ]

  • You know, Ande, I’m a huge fan of Lynne McTaggart’s Intention Experiment, but haven’t yet read her Field yet.
    With your rave review here, I can tell it’s high time I did! Thanks for the impetus to add it to my reading list.

  • Ande says:

    I’m with you on loving Wolf, too. Poppin’ the quiff–I love it!
    Have you read McTaggart’s The Field? It’s about the zero point field, which is the quantum physics description of how everything is connected to everything else. I read the book years ago, and it was what got my left brain on board with my right brain’s excitement about law of attraction. 🙂

  • Well that is some mighty fine company you just listed me with, Nathaniel! Thanks for the smile and huge compliment, my friend.

  • Nathaniel says:

    Three Quiffs
    1. I also love love love Fred Alan Wolf! I’m so happy that guy is alive.
    2. I’m in mad love with Jeannette Maw. She always talks about stuff that I’m into.
    3. It’s amazing what happens to my body when I hear stuff like this. I get chills in my body. It’s the same feeling I get when I listen to Paul Potts sing opera.

  • Janette says:

    Oooh!! I’ve just finished reading “Galileo’s Dream” by science-fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson, so my brain is currently stuffed with notions of quantum physics and multiple realities and possibilities, all based on well-established current science. I LOVE hearing scientists talk metaphysics (my left brain likes to be reminded that the woo woo is grounded in the so-called real world!)
    And of course, Kim’s wonderful novels are never far from my thoughts when I hear material like this.

  • Going to Amazon now – thanks, Janette!!

  • Ha! You Quiff Popper, you!
    Hey Barbara, have you read any of his books? I have a couple in my Amazon shopping cart, but none on my shelf yet!

  • Barbara says:

    Oh, Jeannette, I totally agree with you about Dr. Fred! He’s amazing! And while I don’t always “get it,” I do get that there’s a lot of gook, wavey, gooey stuff out there and that I can totally pop that quiff! Woo hoo!
