Quantum Physics: The Nature of Reality & The Science of Oneness – Introduction & Terminology


  • Physics is the branch of science concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy, and their interactions.
  • It includes the subjects of Mechanics (motion and interaction), Thermodynamics (heat and temperature), Vibrations and Waves, Optics (light and colors), Electromagnetism, Relativity and Quantum Mechanics.


  • Quantum is the scientific name given to “the basic stuff from which the universe is made.” (Michael Talbot)
  • Scientists refer to the tiniest phenomena in the universe as “subatomic phenomena,” because it is smaller than, or occurring within, an atom.
  • When subatomic phenomena was found to be both particles and waves, they gave them the name “wave particle” or “quantum.” (Michael Talbot)
  • Quanta is the plural of “quantum.”

Quantum Mechanics / Quantum Physics

  • Quantum Mechanics (QM) is also known as Quantum Physics and Quantum Theory.
  • QM is the branch of physics that deals with the very small.
  • It describes motion and interaction at the subatomic level.
