7 Passions: A Passion-Based Unified Field Theory of the Universe

- by LiOr Jacob

7 Passions describes the universe as a unified field of all the physical forces, elementary particles, living organisms and the cosmos. This unified energy field is called the universal passion, or Passion. It has seven fundamental energy fields with distinct properties, Passions, that are common to all aspects of the universe. They serve as common parameters in a unified model to describe all aspects of the universe as energy waves that are functions of the seven Passions.

The universal Passion evolves through expansion of the universe by creating entities with richer complexities that are interconnected through the seven Passions. The fundamental energy fields create atoms of elements, molecules of matter, geophysical structures, cellular tissues, life forms, ecosystems and other entities. They express evolving qualities of Passion.

Human life is a highly evolved form of Passion. The energy waves that constitute the material world and the human body also create our thoughts, feelings, behavior and relationships. The evolution of the universe is propelling us towards more Passion. The core qualities, the seven Passions, are the core human drives and motivations. 7 Passions is a universal benchmark of the quality of life that integrates and interconnects all aspects of humanity and the universe.

7 Passions simplifies the exponentially increasing complexity of our civilization, and addresses the environmental, social, health and economic challenges that we face now. The information and communication overloads and multitudes of perceptions of life’s meaning increase our confusions and conflicting interests, and decrease our ability to manage these challenges and overcome our conflicts.

7 Passions integrates the diversity of our humanity and life on Earth in a simple logical model. It provides common principles of personal, social and global well-being. It offers generic guidelines and tools to develop awareness, qualities, communications, collaborations, plans and actions to promote well-being everywhere in all areas of life.

The Standard Model of Physics

Physics explains the world by subdivisions. Every objects is made from smaller parts. The properties and behavior of objects are determined by the properties and behavior its parts. The smaller the parts, the simpler their behavior and properties.

The entire world is made of galaxies, that are made of stars and planets, that are made of materials, that are made of molecules, that are made of atoms that are made of electrons, protons and neutrons, that are made of elementary particles.

Elementary particles, such as quarks, leptons and bosons are indivisible. They are not made up of any physical matter. They are energy fields defined by their properties such as mass, spin, electrical charge and magnetic field, but there are no empirical evidences of what they actually are. The Standard Model of physics also explains that all the forces of nature are created by four fundamental forces: The strong force, the weak force, electromagnetism, and gravitation.

The standard model leaves several fundamental questions unanswered. To some of them physicists are in search for answers. Other questions will never have answered that can be experimentally proven. Are the elementary particles that have been discovered so far, made of smaller particles that have not been discovered yet? Over the past century experimental physicists and engineers built exceedingly powerful nuclear accelerators that helped to discover additional particles previously unknown. Can we discover tinier particles if we had more powerful technology that does not exist yet?

Even if we find that known elementary particles are made of smaller and smaller particles, the question will always remain – and what are these made off? At the end of any finite series of subdivisions there will always be a particle that is just an energy field that is not made of any matter. Another reason why we will never be able to directly observe what the most elementary particles are composed of, is that the resolution of measurements at any given time will depend on contemporary physics-based technology.

Therefore, many scientists acknowledge that nuclear physics has reached its limits. There are various hypotheses that attempt to explain question that were not resolved by conventional scientific experiments. One of them, String Theory, explains that elementary particles are strings of energy waves whose frequencies determine the properties of the particles. They move through space, and according to the Uncertainty Principle, any particle can be anywhere in the universe at any given time. Another hypothetical model, Supersymmetry, explains that every particle is symmetric to a super particle that cannot be observed because its existence is beyond the finest particles and forces of physics.

While particle physics is challenged by the microscopic properties of the world, astronomers are challenged by the vast magnitude of the universe. We are unable to observe or measure anything beyond the capabilities of our current technology. Moreover, we will never be able to directly observe what’s inside black holes because they swallow everything around them, including light.

The unresolved questions leave us with mysteries about the nature of the universe. What is this invisible dark matter that accounts for so much of it? It was created billions of years ago in the Big Bang, an explosion of a singular point that had the entire energy and matter of the universe. What exactly was that singularity point? What was before that? Why does time seem to move linearly in one direction?

Recent observations created contradictions between equations in the standard model that can be resolved only by adding the existence universes parallel to our known universe. This is perplexing. Do they really exist? Where are they? How can we ever validate the existence of other universes if our entire reality is contained only within our known universe?

The Universal Passion

7 Passions integrate our knowledge and understanding about the universe in a simple model that is congruent with current scientific theories and provides answers to the most fundamental questions. It provides a Theory of Everything that Albert Einstein desperately searched for during the last thirty years of his life.

According to this model, the hierarchy of scales in the universe is not linear but circular. The galaxies and the energy of the big bang that created them, are not the largest scale at the opposite end of the smallest scale of elementary particles and the energy fields that create them. Rather, it’s a circle. The energy of the big bang is the same energy of the most elementary particles. This is the universal Passion.

The entire energy of the universe is a field whose waves are the elementary particles that make up the atoms, that make up the molecules, that make up all the material world. This energy is infinite because before the big bang it existed in one point where there was no time, so the energy per space and time is infinite. The big bang started to spread Passion across space and time, and this is our universe that is continuing to expand since then. Space and time are inherent to Passion and they are manifested when it expands.

This is similar to a seed that has a DNA that embodies the potential to be a tree. When it receives light, water, air and nutrients – energy waves of Passion – the seed grows and evolves into a tree.

Energy Waves

Passion is expanding across time and space through evolution. At the beginning there was one energy field. The big bang created energy waves in it, like the wind that creates waves in a calm ocean.

This is the most fundamental evolutionary pattern. An abstract energy that starts to ripple as waves. Waves are cycles of energy where each cycle has similar wave patterns to the previous cycle. The cycle repeats over and over, creating a momentum that perpetuates the energy wave.

Separation-Individuation

At their simplest basic form, all energy waves have a similar pattern. They ripple as one in identical cycles. They’re one wave. Then some areas in this universal energy wave gradually ripple in different frequencies and patterns. They become individual distinct waves. These differences in their energy waves also happen in cycles. These cycles of changing waves happen over space and time. These are the fundamental space-time dimensions of the universe. Their changes are the evolution of the universe.

Creation of the Material World

The evolution of the universe corresponds to increasing complexity of its energy waves and more elaborate energy fields with unique properties. These properties were not apparent in simpler wave patterns. They are inherent to the universal Passion and the creation of more complex waves enabled to manifest them.

The energy waves gradually formed patterns with properties that we recognize as elementary particles. Then they arranged themselves as atoms. The simplest atom is Hydrogen. It has a nucleus of one proton circled by an electron. It exhibits a higher level of evolution then its parts. Several unique fields compose the particles and forces that form a proton with an orbiting electron. In addition to basic complexity that each of them has as distinct energy waves, they have also have a collective complexity to collaborate in forming more evolved patterns, with the properties of a Hydrogen atom. They continue to collaborate to retain this collective pattern for the duration of the existence of that specific Hydrogen atom.

These collective patterns express higher level of evolution. In addition to their own cycles, separation and individuation, they manifest the qualities of collaboration, collective passion, synergy – creating a whole that is more than the sum of the parts, nucleus-orbit relationships and self preservation.

These patterns become more diverse, creating higher levels of complexities that exhibit higher level of evolution. For example, two hydrogen atoms join an atom of oxygen to create a molecule of water. Water has properties and qualities that individual hydrogen and oxygen atoms don’t have. Water is a more evolved entity than hydrogen and oxygen, which are more evolved entities than protons and electrons, which are more evolved than elementary particles, which are more evolved than simple energy waves. Nevertheless, they are all made of energy waves of Passion in increasingly higher levels of evolution.

The Universe As We See It

According to our current scientific models, after the big bang there were hydrogen atoms that gradually started to form clouds of hydrogen and more larger atoms. The atoms formed molecules of matter. The clouds of matter spinned and created galaxies of stars with planets. On one of these planets inanimate materials evolved into living organisms that evolved into humans.

Each level of evolution is built on top its previous levels with more complexity and higher intelligence. Moreover, even at the highest level, humans are made of energy waves with intelligence to form elementary particles, that form atoms, that form molecules, that form organic tissues, that form cells, that form organs that form a human. All the higher levels of intelligence expressed in higher evolutionary forms are inherent in the universal Passion. They manifest more and more qualities of the Passion. All these levels are created by Passion manifesting its own qualities through the universe that it creates.

Life is a higher level of evolution than inanimate objects. Life manifests more evolved qualities of Passion. Living beings have more advanced intelligence and sophistication of the patterns that were described so far, such as cycles, separation-individuation, interrelationships, collective passion, synergy and cell-nucleus relations.

Life is a sophisticated path for Passion to evolve. The universal Passion seem to us as human desires, our personal passions. Our drives are actually the evolutionary forces of Passion. We want to have, to do and to experience more and more valued qualities, so we are driven to create them. Doing so, we actually manifest the inherent qualities of Passion. We tend to think that we are the central entity of the universe, and that our passion is one of the properties of being human. We view passion as serving us, while in fact, Passion is the main universal entity and it evolves through our life. Passion is the source of life, and life’s purpose is to develop Passion and manifest its qualities.
