LISTEN TO YOUR BANANA: The coming of the Quantum Parallel Universes 

THREE BIG INSIGHTS
  • The quantum computer
  • Indian CEOs
  • The coming of INDIA 
 
REVELATION
  • It works, but we don’t know how it works 
  • Spooky action at a distance 
  • The Wisdom of Madness
 
What if we just had the wrong glasses or lenses for centuries?  It has become apparent that we need to learn how to think QUANTUM.
 
FIRST
  • Throw away the old glasses.
  • Stop being binairian.
  • Stop linear thinking.
  • Eliminate all dogma.
  • Be aware that science aims to increase your anxiety as you move from a hypothesis to a new hypothesis that explains why the previous one was a mistake. 
 
SECOND 
  • Time, Space, and Energy must be reconsidered.
  • Time goes in all directions; consequences can occur before the cause.
  • Space is curved.
  • The universe is empty.  Only energy exists.
  • Our reality is an illusion. 
  • The observer effect.
  • Objectivity is impossible. 
  • The uncertainty principle.
  • Only probabilities. 
  • Everything exists already. 
  • Complementarity instead of opposition.
  • Everything is connected. 
  • Mind and body are one.
  • Yes – No – Yes and No- and a lot more. We have yet to explore the MORE.
  • Quantum thinking is more.
 
THE BIG STEP: The reintegration of:
  • Mysticism
  • Archetypes 
  • Paranormal
  • Madness 
  • Jung
  • Einstein
  • Artists 
  • Poets 
  • Hidden forces 
 
We are in the Stone Age of discovering the Quantum parallel universes. This is the very beginning of a new age. How many geniuses have been put in mental health hospitals because we had the wrong glasses?

130: Your New Life Expectancy

A few years ago, a group of scientists asked me to discover the code for immortality. Everybody was okay with being 100 if they could still be independent, which meant going to the bathroom alone, but nobody wanted to be 200. They told me, « All my friends are going to be dead.”
 
Today, the Zeitgeist has changed. There are close to 800,000 centenarians worldwide, more than the entire population of Luxembourg.  The predictions are that by 2050, we will have over 4 million centenarians, which is twice more than the population of Iceland.  But this is not all. Being 110 is becoming very common, and more people surpassing 110: Jeanne Clement in France is 122, and Kane Tanaka in Japan is 118.
 
This gives us an entirely different perspective. According to experts, 130 will soon be our « reasonable expectation.”  We should not think about how old we are but how many decades of life we still have in front of us. 
 
I discovered then that we have three ways to look at age.
  1. The date on your passport: your official age.
  2. Your biological age: we now say that 70 is the new 50. 
  3. Our psychological age: we found that people in retirement homes acted more like teenagers than grandparents. They don’t respect the rules, they are rude, always looking for sex, and complain all the time.
 
Rupert Murdoch is getting married at 92 with a very young woman who is 66. 
Okay, it helps to have a lot of money, but 92, WOW.
 
Centenarians usually have a unique sense of purpose. It is not just the Okinawa diet that keeps them alive over 100 (86,510 Japanese are over 100) but what they call « Ikigaï, » or your higher purpose.
 
An old friend told me, « I am too busy; I don’t have time to die. » He was very busy creating animal shelters. 
 
It is never too late to start a new adventure, learn a new language, make new friends, be provocative, discover your new « Ikigaī, » or fight for something or someone you love. 
 
Remember, happiness is a choice. 
Happy « Ikigaī”!

L’Air de Rien

C’est un art.
C’est passer trois heures à se maquiller pour que ça ne se voie pas.
C’est le foulard sur l’épaule parce que c’est inutile.
C’est avant tout ne pas avoir l’air de vouloir impressionner.
C’est le cavalier qui fait tellement corps avec son cheval qu’on ne le voit jamais donner un ordre.
C’est l’harmonie « mine de rien. »
C’est l’art de communiquer l’essentiel sans que ça se voie.
Le négligé est toujours très recherché.
Casual chic est toujours plus compliqué qu’un bon smoking qui a déjà servi avec fidélité.
Le « naturel » demande beaucoup de préparation pour que ça ne se voie pas.
Un certain détachement est plus « classe » qu’une volonté assidue pour réussir.
Le film « Les Cousins » de Chabrol montre le succès du Parisien insouciant alors que le cousin provincial qui a travaillé si dur rencontre un échec.
L’art de rien ! C’est un raffinement naturel, un talent inné, un acquis injustifié, une injustice ! Une supériorité qui ne s’achète pas !
Mais c’est aussi un talent qui peut s’acquérir, l’air de rien.

Le Temps

Avez-vous le temps ? Ne dites jamais OUI
On va vous le voler.

Il y a ceux qui ont le temps
Et il y a les voleurs de temps.
Donnez-moi cinq minutes !
Mes dernières cinq minutes je les ai déjà données.
Je n’ai plus de « cinq minutes » à donner.

J’ai perdu du temps !
Ne dites jamais que vous l’avez trouvé.

Dans mon temps ..
C’est le vôtre, gardez-le.

Le bon vieux temps, comme son nom l’indique c’est pour les vieux.

Par les temps qui courent ..
N’essayez pas de les rattraper. Ils sont déjà loin.

Il y a bien sûr le temps des cerises, le temps c’est de l’argent.

L’air du temps

Un temps fou

Juste à temps

Passer son temps

Le temps libre

Les temps morts

Avoir du temps à perdre

Le bon temps

Le temps qui passe

J’ai voulu l’arrêter pour prendre un verre mais le temps n’avait pas le temps.

J’aurais dû essayer un temps mort mais les temps morts ne boivent pas.

Le Voleur du Temps

Quand l’heure arrive à pied, à cheval ou en voiture
Où il faut changer de rive
Pour trouver sa pointure
Alors commence l’aventure
Légère et sans dérive
Vers un lendemain
Incertain
Comme tous les lendemains
Pourquoi changer de rive
À pied, à cheval ou en voiture
Alors qu’une barque est à portée de main
Dès le matin

Mais changer de rive
En barque
C’est trop mesquin

Sans panache et sans voilure
Comme un voleur de temps
Coquin
Qui préfère la voiture
Au cheval fumant d’écume
Qui laboure l’histoire
Depuis toujours

Mais l’heure arrive
À rebours
Au détour d’une phrase
Comme toujours
Pour forcer la rive
À changer de côté
Et forcer le destin
Malin
À écrire l’histoire d’à côté
Comme s’il s’était trompé
De matin
Quand on ne veut plus changer de rive
Les passeurs meurent d’absence de destin

Caresse du matin
Sur la main d’un destin
Tueur de passeur

Quand l’heure arrive
De changer de destins
Il faut choisir son passeur d’un contact de la main
Sur sa peur

WE ARE YOUNGING

We are not Aging.
We are Younging. 
Going into a new life with new dreams, new purpose, new joys and discoveries. 
 
My new life is QUANTUM.
  • It is a new understanding of what makes us who we are and how our old way of thinking is outdated and restrictive.
  • Quantum thinking is opening up a new perspective that has completely changed my life.
  • No more oppositions but complementarities. 
  • Quantum computers can solve a problem in 100 seconds, which would have taken years for classic computers to solve.
  • We can apply Quantum thinking to every aspect of our lives.
  • This is the Quantum Revolution, which transitioned from candles to electricity or horses to jets. 
 
Today, my higher purpose is to develop and teach Quantum thinking.
This will start with my next book, Listen to Your Banana—How Quantum Physics Has Changed My Life, followed by the creation of the Quantum Institute. I will explain how to apply Quantum thinking to everything: Quantum psychology, Quantum advertising, Quantum marketing, Quantum medicine, Quantum love—sex—food, Quantum mind and Quantum body. 
WOW! 
Welcome to the new Quantum world. 
The Quantum spaceship is leaving soon. Don’t miss it!
 
Be Quantum or die!
The Quantum you are waiting for already exists. It is just waiting for you to become wave and particle, stop thinking binary and linear, and enjoy superpositions and entanglement. 
It is not a new life. 
It is a lot more! 
I know it is spooky, but it is so exciting.
Forget about Artificial intelligence.
Welcome to Quantum Intelligence.

Well-being

I don’t like these words.
I prefer awake or aware.
It is dangerous to be happy if it means not being aware, not awake, and concerned about the dangers. 
Optimistic Jews ended up in the gas chamber, 
pessimistic ones at the Waldorf Astoria in New York.
Why are the Swiss safe? Because they are Paranoid.
If well-being is passive, it is dangerous.
If it includes awareness of dangers, it gives you more chances to survive.
 
The code for Mother is: Total Paranoia. This is why we are still alive. 
Remember the old Eastern saying that stated that if you want peace, you prepare for war? (See the Swiss model)
Well-being is the new Psychologic drug. 
I am for active well-being, which includes 
Prepare, Prepare, Prepare, knowing that nothing stays the same and that you might have to IMPROVISE.
«Becoming» is a succession of improvisation.
When you make plans, God Laughs!

Born in 1715

I was born in 1715 when Louis XIV died at the beginning of the 18th century. That makes me 309 years old. 

I still have all my head. My body follows but complains once in a while. 

In the past, we had armor. Now, we have exoskeleton avatars and artificial intelligence.

I can’t wait to enter the next century/world of Quantum.

To be anywhere, everywhere, all the time, all at once. 

It looks as if our old scientific reality is an illusion.

I love people who look for the truth; I am very suspicious of people who say they found it.

Choose Life

I don’t want a long, healthy, boring life. 

No Gluten

No Fat 

No Meat 

No Sugar 

The above all means No Taste

No Cigars 

No Whiskey 

No Sex Please, We’re British (a play written by Alistair Foot and Anthony Marriott, which premiered at the Strand in London)

It all means NO LIFE!

Some people are dead; we just forgot to tell them.

Why do you want to live longer if your life is boring, with no fun, pleasure, sugar, gluten…, or taste? 

When your life is exciting, you cannot die.

When your life is boring, you are already dead. 

Death is an attitude. Happy is a choice.

A friend of mine was enjoying a great life. Three girlfriends, whiskey and cigars, a lot of food, a lot of sex, but he was overweight. So he went to see his doctor. 

Jim, you cannot keep living this way. You are going to die. You have to change your lifestyle; you must exercise, follow a diet, no alcohol, no cigars, lose weight, go down to one girlfriend, don’t stay up all night dancing and drinking, and go to bed at nine. 

Okay, Doc. I will.

He followed all the rules imposed by his doctor. 

He became skinny, healthy, and sober. 

He had a beautiful waistline and beautiful skin. 

A few days later, he was hit by a truck and died.

The doctor was right when he said, «You are going to die.»

Choose life!

We are all going to die … anyway!

So let’s have a beautiful, sexy, unhealthy Rye Manhattan and enjoy life. 

Life is too good.

I don’t have time to die!

The New Quantum Generation

They are our children, but they are from another planet. They need an operating manual with new maps, rules, principles, and a new way of thinking because they are landing in a completely different world, The Quantum world. This is why I call them the QUANTUM GENERATION.

It is not just a classic rebellion against the former generation. It is a metamorphosis, the Chrysalid.

It becomes a butterfly and can fly, looking at us, still crawling on the ground. 

They are in different universes, a world of multiple universes, parallel universes.

The old generation has two significant handicaps in the way they think. They are using old glasses to look at reality and everyday life.

The first is their BINARIAN perspective. 

You are either a winner OR a loser

Rich OR poor, friend OR enemy. 

This ancient philosophy comes from Mani, who invented Manichaeism in the 3rd century BC. Life became simple. You are good OR bad. The universe is made of opposite forces: good forces and evil forces. So, we have God Or the Devil.

Heaven OR Hell, Male OR female.

The dialectic never gives birth to the synthesis (sorry, Mr. Hegel).

This « Cosmogony » ruled the world for several thousands of years, leading us to two World Wars, millions of dead, and two atomic bombs.

« Science » (I mean binary science) gave us dumb computers. Einstein said they are dumb; they only give you answers. These dumb computers created artificial stupidity, giving us « scientific, » answers to wrong questions.

The second handicap is linear thinking. 

Always look at causes before consequences, as the past creates the present in that order and laws that can predict the future. Descartes gave us the separation of mind and body, and Newton gave us the Laws of motion and Newton’s mechanics.

Of course, some « crazy » people started questioning this reasoning, but they were immediately labeled as crazy. 

Time is relative, said Einstein, the twin experiment. The shortest way between two points is not a straight line?

And many mystics or poets were relegated to pre-scientific thinking, having smoked too much. 

Since the beginning of the 20th century, a group of Crazy scientists have explored the Quantum world. 

Today, Quantum computers can answer questions in 100 seconds, taking regular computers years. 

It is time to stop looking at Mystics and poets as « crazy. » They might just have been ahead of their time. 

The Quantum generation is bridging the gap between them and our future. 

Soon, I will give you the first elements of the Quantum Generation Operating Manual.
