We tend to hold a mechanistic world view where the world operates as a giant machine and individuals are merely cogs with a role that keeps the machine working. This worldview suggests that the world is made up of separate and inert objects that only interact with one another through cause and effect. Results both good and bad become attributed to the duties of the smaller parts. When something goes wrong, we are encouraged to analyze these individual parts or decisions and break them down in hopes of finding the cause. We then use this data to inform our analysis and measurement of future events.
This thought process, however, trains our minds to simplify, reduce, and analyze while missing the bigger picture. Analyzing should be one tool but not the default choice. Overly analytical and mechanistic thinking creates a constant state of unrest in our minds and perhaps contributes to anxiety so prevalent across the world.
Principles found in quantum physics reject the certainty and determinism found in this mechanistic worldview and instead show evidence of how uncertainty, potentiality, and inseparability exist on not just the quantum level but on a macro level, as well. By sharing these concepts and how we can benefit from them in our everyday lives, we can improve our relationship with anxiety around uncertainty, realize our full potential, and ultimately lead ourselves to long-term personal growth.
