What the Noetic Sciences investigate has long been truth in the New Age movement. Guru Shakti Gawain writes in her bestselling book Creative Visualization
The Physical Universe Is Energy
The scientific world is beginning to discover what metaphysical and spiritual teachers have known for centuries. Our physica universe is not really composed of any “matter” at all; its basic component is a kind of force or essence that we call energy.
Things appear to be solid and seperate from one another on the level at which our physical senses normaly perceive them. On finer levels, however, atomic and subatomic levels, seemingly solid matter is seen as smaller and smaller particles within particles, which eventually turn out to be just pure energy.
Physically, we are all energy, and everything around us is made up of energy. We are all part of one great energy field. Things that we perceive to be solid and seperate are in reality just various forms of our essential energy which is common to all. We are all one, even in a literal physical sense.
