Think Different Theory

Understanding How Your Mind Works


In this episode, I’m going to dive into the subject of Quantum Physics. Stay with me, I promise this is relatable. In fact, it’s probably the most important topic I’ve covered so far on this podcast because it’s so misunderstood and will totally change your mindset on life once you can grasp the concept.


I’ve researched the topic of Quantum Physics a lot lately and I want to break down this complex topic into simple terms to show you how it works and how it impacts your life. We are going to talk about how Subatomic particles are everywhere and nowhere. How we are 99.9999% energy and only 0.0001% physical… and how this affects our minds and who we are.

Here are the key topics discussed in this episode:

  • Why this is important to you (4:00)
  • Explaining the concept of Quantum Physics (4:45)
  • The book on the topic I’m studying (7:00)
  • Example to simplify the topic (10:45)
  • Bringing it all together (12:30)
  • Quantum Physics and religion (17:00)
  • Recap of the topic (21:45)

Did you know that our bodies are 99.9999% energy and only 0.01% actual physical substance. Yet we focus on that 0.01% all the time, everything that society has told you and taught you and that we think about mindset and how our mindset works and how our beliefs work and how our actions work is all wrong. You’ve been lied to and that’s what I want to talk about on this episode because it’s so fascinating.


So here was my issue. I wonder to find the answers to life’s biggest questions. Things like how do I become happy and live with purpose? How do I make more money doing what I love and what does it mean to be truly successful in all areas of life? My name is Josh Forti @joshforti on Instagram and I ask life’s biggest questions and share the answers with you. My goal is to help you find purpose, happiness, and open your mind to new realms of possibility by helping you think differently about everything you do know and understand on this podcast. We think different, we dream bigger and we live in a world without limits. This is a new paradigm. Welcome to the think different.


What’s going on guys? Welcome back to another episode of The Think Different Theory. My name is Josh Forti and we are on episode number 27 today and I don’t know if I’ve ever been this excited about an episode because in this episode we’re going to talk about something that I am actually learning about in real time and I had been searching for this answer for months and months and months literally for the last six, seven, eight months. I’ve been trying to find the answers to this and I’ve just now discovered them and it’s one of those things where I’m sharing it with you as I learn this, I just stumbled upon this and started learning this about two weeks ago and I’ve been reading books about it and I’ve been watching trainings on it and watching youtube videos. I’m just studying it like no other because it’s incredible and it’s amazing.


And once you understand this, so many things about you are going to make sense. So many things about the world and the way you think and the reason that you can’t achieve things and how to actually go and achieve things is going to make sense. But I have to warn you that in this episode there’s so much information I’m going to give you like an overview level. And I’m teaching as I’m learning. So a lot of this stuff I’m not even clear on yet, but I understand it enough and I know that this is so important and that everybody needs to be able to hear this. So as we continue to build these episodes and as you continue to, as the podcast grows and evolves like we’re gonna be talking so much about this particular topic and that is the topic of quantum physics. All right?


Now you might be like, Okay Josh, that sounds complicated. That sounds like really smart science stuff. Let me just call this verse to rest. I hated science in school. I think it was a c student, I don’t even remember. It was like a C or B student. I struggled with it. I didn’t like it. I had no interest in it whatsoever. So you think science is boring? So did I. But this is fascinating and this will absolutely blow your mind and I’m so excited to dive in and share this with you and just, just really start to change your life, uh, because it’s already changed my life in the short amount of time that I’ve been studying this. And like I said, I’ve been searching for this for like six, seven, eight, nine months or a year trying to find this answer. And I found this and I was like, oh my gosh, I can’t wait to study this more and more and more.


And so this podcast is the journey of my life. It’s me asking life’s biggest questions and sharing the answers with you and going about in that process of things. And so that’s what I’m doing right here. Literally in real time. I’m sharing with you this as I’m learning. And I’m very, very excited about this because I know this will change your life and I’m going to be diving in heavy, heavy, heavy on this, uh, in my own personal life. Now the other thing I’ve got to say, just to preface this is some of what I’m about to say might sound crazy and for those of you that you know, maybe you’re sitting there right now and you’re like, Josh, like I know mindset’s important, but you know, I don’t know about the whole energy thing and I don’t know about the whole, like, you know, you can create your reality, blah, blah, blah.


Okay, I understand that and I understand that what I’m about to tell you might sound far-fetched and out there, but I just want to ask you for the sake of this podcast episode as we go through this, and I think this one might go a little long. I’m going to try to keep it to 20 minutes, but I was so excited about this. I want you to just have an open mind and play with the possibility that this actually might be a real thing. I believe without a shadow of a doubt because it just makes sense because of everything that I’ve been studying and prepping my mind for the last nine months, a year. And you know what I’ve seen transpire in my own life. But I really want you to keep an open mind to this because I think it will blow your mind. And once you understand what it is that we’re talking about here, if you’re able to, to really believe it and go study it at a much more deeper level, um, I think it can really change your life.


So we’re going to focus more on the concept here, not so much application, because I’m still learning about the application side of things and my own life, but I want to share with you what I’m learning. So let’s dive in. I have, I don’t know, seven or eight points that I want to cover here today, and it’s just going to, it’s going to be fantastic. So quantum physics, let’s just begin there. All right. What in the heck is quantum physics? All right. Well, quantum physics is the branch of physics concerned with quantum theory. All right? And quantum theory is a theory of matter and energy based off of the concept of quantum, especially quantum mechanics, that’s not really important. What’s important with quantum physics is quantum physics – this is super important – okay? Quantum physics allows for particles to be in two states at the same time.


All right? Now let’s define what this particle is that I’m talking about. If you go all the way down to the atom level, all right? So you know about atoms, uh, you learned about them in science. They’re made up of protons, neutrons, electrons. All right? What makes up an atom is simply subatomic particles, all right? Like many, many, many minute little particles that are going around super, super, super fast with no apparent rhyme or reason behind them, all right? So quantum physics basically says that these two particles can be in two states at the same time, meaning that they can be everywhere and nowhere at the same time. That’s a mind-blowing thought right there. Everywhere and nowhere at the same time. And that they can be both a physical being of energy at the same time as well. Meaning that they’re like two separate things at the same time.


And this is so fascinating because what this does, what this is going to allow to happen is us to be interconnected to everything in the entire world. Now I know like once again I understand this as far fetched and kind of out there and you’re like, oh my gosh. Like what the heck is he talking about? But, but bear with me here. Okay. So quantum physics basically says we’ve got these particles that can be in two places at the same time and everything in the world around us as we know it is made up of atoms which are comprised of subatomic particles. And if these particles can be in two places at the same time, then in theory, everything in this entire world, right, which is made up of these subatomic particles is connected because it can be both energy and a physical substance at the same time.


All right. And I know this is a lot, but bear with me here. Okay. So shoot me. So I started studying this and I’m actually reading a book right now, which I highly, highly recommend for anyone that wants to study this more. In fact, everybody should read this book. All right? It’s called breaking the habit of being yourself, how to lose your mind and create a new one. And it’s by Dr Joe Dispenza. And when he talks about in this book is that 99.9999 that’s four nines k nine 9.99999% of us is energy and only 0.0001% of us is actual physical mass. All right? So think about this. We focus all of our time, all of our effort, all of our energy and focusing on this external thing of our outward bodies. When in reality we as humans are only 0.001% physical and 99.9999% energy or nonphysical.


All right? And when we understand that, it’s like, holy cow, why would we focus on this when nine, 9.99, nine, nine, 9% of us is not even this. And that’s because society is lying to you. Society doesn’t understand this and this is why you have to think differently and you have to be able to keep an open mind with this. So we were this energy field essentially, right? And we are made up of subatomic particles and these subatomic particles can be both energy and uh, physical being at the same time. Now if you go down to the Subatomic particle level and you observe them all right? Like through a, um, a very, very high powered microscope, what you find is absolutely fascinating. Now you’re going to have to, I’m going to try to paint this picture out. Excuse me, paid this picture out in the best way that I can.


It’s kind of hard without visuals, but bear with me here, okay? A subatomic particle only becomes a physical object when it is observed. Okay? So what does that mean? That means if you were to look through a microscope, let’s pretend on, let me put this in easier terms. Let’s pretend you were looking at a screen on the wall. All right, so you’ve got this screen and let’s pretend that you’re in this room. You’re looking at the screen and on. This is a white screen, all right? There are five dots, all right, and these bots, let’s just say for the sake of this argument are black. All right, you’ve got five dots and this is you looking at this screen is you looking through a microscope at subatomic particles, all right? So you recognize five of them. You are observing them.


Therefore there are five there. And now let’s say you walk out of the room and you come back into the room and you look at the screen and it’s the exact same scream. Nothing has changed, nothing has moved, and now there are 10 dots on the screen and you’re like, wait, there was just five and now there’s 10 but nothing changed. How the heck is that possible? And so then you’re like, okay, I’m going to try this again. You walk out and you come back in and now there are only seven dots on the screen and you’re like, okay, I think I’m crazy. Are the dots really changing? We haven’t changed anything. The slide hasn’t changed. These are subatomic particles. So you bring in another person and this other person comes in and you sit them down and you go how many dots on the screen?


And they say, well there’s seven and UC seven. And then you walk out and you come back and you look at the screen and there’s still seven there and they still see seven. And so you do this a couple times and there’s always still seven there, but then you both walk out and you come back in and you look at the screen and now there’s 12 okay. That is basically subatomic particles and how they work. When it comes to observation and what it’s saying is that subatomic particles only exist when they are observed. So basically if nobody’s looking, it’s not there. It goes back into this energy state. All right. And so only when you observe it, does it become an actual thing? And when it’s in his energy state, it’s interconnected with every single other thing in the entire universe because we’re all connected by energy and they are not bound by space or by time.


All right? So no base, no time, no location, dimension river. It’s not bound by anything that we do in. And we know in our day to day beings in this western world and civilization and culture of like, you know, if you look at a table, you’re like, it’s in this room and it’s 12 o’clock noon, okay, space-time. You have a dimension and you have the time. It’s their energy is not bound by any of that. It’s instantaneous and can be everywhere and nowhere at the same time. And all these subatomic particles are made up of that. So what does this mean? And you’re like, Okay Josh, this is crazy. Like what does this have to do with mindset and what does this have to do with like me? And like how is this has anything to do with success? Well, I’ve talked about this before on the podcast and you’ve probably heard many other people say it too, but energy goes where energy flows and where you put your focus on something, that’s what’s ultimately going to, uh, you know, manifest itself or become bigger and bigger.


And so this leads me to, and I’m kind of going in steps here, I’m going to tie them all together here. This leads me to my next point though, that says if you focus on something, more of it is going to come. So if in your mind you’re sitting here and you’re focused on negativity, more negativity is going to come and you’re like, Okay Josh. But like how right? And I hear people ask me this all the time. They’re like, oh, it’s just the universe. So it’s all this, this explains it. Okay? So if you focus on positive things, positive things are going to come. If you both focus on negative things, negative things are going to come. All right? So I want you to think about this will be very long to explain. So let me try to simplify this down. There was a video I watched on youtube where one guy starts an entire dance party.


He’s in this field, a bunch of people sitting out and he just starts dancing and slowly but surely it goes from one person to two presold people to four to 10 to 20 to 50 to a hundred until all of a sudden basically everybody in the park is all for no reason. Just getting up and dancing with this dude. Right? There’s going around and jumping around and have a good time. All right. And that’s because the focus was on him. Everybody started focusing on him and  where there’s focus more and more come to that area. All right, so like if you were to put a celebrity in the middle of a room, all the rooms, like 80% of the room would just be glued on that celebrity, right? If they’re a big-time celebrity, well that’s the same way that particles work. So just like, and it’s the 80 20 rule in effect.


For those of you that know the 80 20 rule is you, you’ll probably understand this more, but basically it says that like when something happens, when people fall in pursuit, like 80% or a large majority of people are going to follow or have things are going to follow us. The reason that 20% of the people in the world own 80% of the wealth, it’s the reason that uh, 80% of accidents, accidents happen on 20% of the roads. It’s the reason that 80% of people live in 20% of the land mass in the United States or all over the world. Like it’s the reason that 80% of the world is covered in water and only 20% is land. It’s, it’s the reason behind all of that. Well, the same thing is true at the subatomic level with particles. So here’s what happens. All right, and this is super, super important to understand.


Basically we are subatomic particles. We’re composed of subatomic particles, meaning we are 99.9999999% energy and only 0.01% mass. So in our mind, which is primarily energy. If we focus on negativity, you have to understand that we are literally connected to every other point in the universe right now. All right? So every but the everything in the universe is connected and we’re going to focus and put our energy and focus on negativity. So naturally what’s going to happen is all of the particles and energy around us is going to be sucked into that point and sucked into that energy and to that focus point. And is the longer you focus on it, the bigger and bigger it’s going to get. Why? Because you have the entire universe of energy that you’re connected to. And just like if you put a celebrity, you know, Taylor Swift in the middle of a room and everybody’s going to start gradually like moving towards her and it’s going to get bigger and bigger and bigger.


Or if you know someone starts running down the road in a marathon and more and more and more and more and more people are going to join in the longer and farther he runs, the more and more people are going to join. Right? Or just like any trend, bitcoin or entrepreneurship or whatever, the longer and the faster it goes and the longer it’s out there and the more energy is put on it, the more people go. Same thing is true with these particles. So this energy, when you’re focusing on negativity, the universe and the energy fields that are out there are also going to go and they’re going to send particles that are going to send this energy to whatever it is that you’re focusing on because that’s how it works. On the flip side of that, if you have, if you have positive energy, the reverse is going to happen.


You’re going to get positive energy and positive particles that are gonna go in and fill up. Does that make sense? I really love this make sense? And like I’m learning this guy, so I’m not so much more to share with you as I grow and evolve in this whole thing. And I understand like better how to explain it and how it all works and how it all fits together. But I’m trying to like, there’s so much more to it than this, but I’m trying to break it down at a very, very basic level because if you can understand this and you can understand that we as humans are all connected. We as you know in the universe is all connected and this, this energy like knows everything about us and is, is us. Then everything else starts to make sense. Now I want to pause here for a second because that was a lot of information and I think a lot of you guys are like, whoa.


Some people out there are religious and I myself am a Christian, I believe in God. And so one of the things that I have found with religious people is they often discredit science and just say, no, it’s just a god thing. And so you might be thinking right now like, Josh, what are you talking about? This is just God. Listen, I believe in God just as much as anybody else does, probably more so than a lot of people because I am studying this stuff, but I believe that God created the universe and that God uses science and everything in the universe to manifest himself and two to go and accomplish what it is that he was trying to accomplish with the creation of the universe. I believe that God is everywhere and nowhere all at the same time. I believe that God is within us, outside of us all around us.


I believe there is love and his Holy Spirit that he is there and that’s the exact same concept here in quantum physics and so you can be like, oh Josh, well that’s just called the Holy Spirit. I’m like, well, yes, you can call it that, but like this is what God is using. And I don’t, I mean obviously I don’t know that for a fact, but like God uses science got to like, I’m not going to go against the laws of nature and science. He created them. And so when, if God created all of this and you know, in the Bible, it talks about, and a lot of religious people believe, they’re like, Oh God is love and God is everywhere. Like how has got everywhere? This is how God is everywhere, right? The same exact concept. So think about that and the form of energy and some people call it energy, some people call it the Holy Spirit called would you ever, you want to call it?


I’m just doing calling energy for the sake of this podcast in this discussion. But once you understand that, and once you’re able to tap into this energy field, and once you’re able to harness the power of this and shift your mindset around this, everything is going to change in your life. All right? Does that make sense? All right. I really, really want your guys’ feedback on this. So if you listen to this far and you’re listening to this whole thing, please hit me up on Instagram and just let me know that you listened to this episode. I don’t care. Like even if you don’t normally send me a message, even if that’s not your thing or you don’t have Instagram or you hardly ever log in like just downloaded or just hit me up, shoot me a message on Instagram. I don’t really check Facebook messenger, but you can hit me up on there, I guess if you don’t have Instagram.


But like I want you to, I want to know that you listen to this and are understanding this and that this makes sense. And I want to know what makes sense and what doesn’t make sense because I’m going to dive into this further and further and further and there’s a bunch of more points that I want to touch on here, but I don’t even think I have time. Um, I’m going to go through them really quickly just so they could kind of give you a sneak peek of what’s to come in future episodes. Um, but did you know that we are only 5% conscious and everything that we do is and like 95% subconscious. And so like the like we’ve programmed our body and our subconscious mind to do things on a daily basis and without even thinking about them. And 95% of what we do on a daily basis is subconscious.


And only 5% of what we do on a daily basis is actually conscious, which means where like basically asleep 95% of the time. All right. And so like waking up and becoming conscious and becoming aware of our surroundings. You might’ve heard people talk about consciousness. That’s what we’re talking about because you programmed your mind and you programmed your body to do these subconscious actions without even realizing it. And it all comes down to like different neurons that are firing and different, you know, symptoms that are going off in your head and in your body that you’re like programming too. And they get used to certain things and this explains why some people are just sad the time. Some people are happy all the time. Some people are depressed or feel guilty all the time. Some people can make millions of dollars just like at the snap of a finger.


It’s all come down to how your brain and how your body is wired. All right, and what’s interesting is, and once again we’re going to get into this more in a future episode, your body is responsible for everything feeling and your mind is responsible for everything thinking. And what happens is is that your body and your mind are out of sync. And in order for them to work together, they have to be in sync. And if you want to change your mind or your life, I should say, rather, if you want to change your life, change your reality, change your feelings, change your success habits, change your identity, who you think you are, become whoever it is that you want to become. You’ve got to make sure that you’re both body and your mind our in sync because if they’re not in sync, they’re going to be fighting each other and you’re never going to get anywhere.


All right. Okay. I know this was a lot of information, but quantum physics, we’re gonna be talking a lot more about this because it’s just mind-blowing and super exciting stuff. Please make sure I messaged me on Instagram. So just as a quick recap. All right, so that we’re all on the same page. I’m just going to recap what I said here. Number one, I’m a Christian, I believe in God, I believe that God uses science and that we can learn a tremendous amount about God and consciousness and religion and love and who we are as humans and who God is by better understanding quantum physics and the energy that is around us in the entire universe. In the infinite mass, number and size of the universe that it is. Secondly, quantum physics is the branch of physics concerns with quantum theory and it basically allows for particles to be in two states at the same time, basically everywhere and nowhere or physical and energy all at the same time.


And it’s, it’s very, very complex and fascinating stuff. We in our human bodies are 99.9999% energy and only 0.001% an actual physical being, which means, think about that guys, you’re 99.9999% bigger. And then what you realize right now, you’re this huge massive energy field walking around. And a, you’ll probably like the size of Texas, who knows? I don’t know what the actual dimension is of that. But it’s a fascinating concept to think about. We’re all interconnected at the Subatomic or Subatomic particle level because of quantum physics and because of all this, and this is fascinating stuff. So super important to understand and where you focus your energy, subatomic particles and energy is going to multiply because that’s how the universe works. Not only us as people, but like that’s how all elements of all of nature works. Where you put focus on something, it’s naturally going to compound.


And you know, 20% of people control 80% of the wealth, just like 20% of you know, atoms and subatomic molecules control 80% of what we do. Like all sorts of really, really cool stuff there. So that’s very, very important to understand. And uh, controlling our mind and controlling our thoughts is so important because when we do that, we’re literally tapped into the world around us so that we have this unlimited supply of energy and resources. There’s no way you could run out of positivity because you’re connected to all the positivity in the world. And that’s why when you get a lot of positive people together, you ever been in a room when there’s like 20 or 30 or 50 or 100 people that are all super, super positive and it’s all really good energy and you just walk in and you go, ah, like I just feel better.


You probably said the term or heard someone say the term, I just loved the energy of that room or the energy of that person or the energy of that event. That’s because now energy, positive energy or whatever type of energy is there is not only being focused on by one person but by many people and it’s a compound effect of just as awesomeness because now you’re drawing in these huge, massive energy fields to whatever that event is and that’s so, so real. And so when you bring lots of positive people together or negative people together, you’re going to have that effect because they’re all sharing in this unlimited amount and unlimited massive energy in the entire universe and it’s absolutely phenomenal and awesome. Last couple of things that we touched on just very, very briefly that the future is our mind is responsible for thinking.


Our body is responsible for feeling and they need to be in sync. We are 5% conscious, 95% subconscious. And if we want to be more aware of our surroundings, we have to become much more conscious and realize that 95% of what we do, we have a sub or programmed in our subconscious to do. We don’t even realize that it’s happening. And uh, we absolutely need to control that if we want to be able to change our life. Okay. Crazy episode. Like I said, it’s gonna be a little bit longer. I try not to go too crazy long on you, but, uh, definitely a longer episode than normal. Um, so much more to come on this and I’m very, very excited. Like I said, I’m going through, I’m probably going to read this book at least a dozen times. Not even kidding you. Breaking the habit of being yourself, how to lose your mind and create a new one by Dr Joe Dispenza.


I have it ordered hardcopy coming in. I’ve listened to it on audible. Just phenomenal. Highly recommend that book. Uh, Sam Ovens talks a lot about this too, which is just really, really cool. And I’m very blessed to be able to have him as a mentor and someone that I can learn from in business. All of this, not just in life, but also in business. And it’s very, very powerful. And this is the reason quantum physics is the reason that I believe that anyone can change their life. Quantum physics is the reason that I believe that. And I know without a shadow of a doubt that your inner soul or your outward circumstances are not controlled by your outward circumstances. And your inner circumstances are not controlled by your outward circumstances. Your inner and outer circumstances are controlled by your mindset and your interior self, your energy, your thought process.


And when you can create a new mindset within you, it will manifest on outside of it. Because, and this is so important and I’m gonna end with this. Your outward state of being is simply a reflection on the energy that is going on inside of you. So if you have good energy, and if you’re focused on building and becoming this, this person of value in a person of character and person of worth, that is going to reflect a naturally on the outside of you because the universe and God and whatever you want to call it is literally manifesting that out on you. And that’s why like some people are like, oh, manifestation. Most people just do manifestation wrong. Let’s just, I mean, that’s just what it is. They manifest wrong. They meditate wrong. Like a lot of people just do it wrong. There’s a lot of bad information out there, but when you do it right, who you are on the inside manifests on the outside.


And that’s why if you’re a crappy person on the inside, you’re probably going to have a crappy life on the outside. If you’re depressed,  if you’re sad, if you’re doubtful, and all those things on the inside, that’s what’s going to manifest on the outside as well. And in future episodes, we’re going to talk about how this is done and how to change your mind and how to reprogram your brain and how to actually go out and take action on this. Right now I just don’t even know how to do it for myself because I’m still learning about it all and a, I’m going to dive into it and continue to share with you as we go. All right, so without further ado, that’s all I’ve got for you. Please, please, please. Like I said, hit me up on Instagram. Even if you don’t, we’ve been getting dozens and dozens of messages from people that do hit us up on Instagram.


I want like 50, 60, 70, 100 messages from this episode back just letting me know, just let me know what part you did understand or what you found most fascinating and then what part you didn’t understand so that I can clarify that in future episodes. All right guys, as always, hustle, hustle, God bless. Do not be afraid to think different because those of us that think different, we’ll change the world even if that world is just your own. I love you all and I will see you on the next episode.


Take it easy fam piece. Yo, what’s up guys? You’ve been listening to the think different theory with myself, Josh Forti which I like to call a new paradigm of thinking and real quick, I got a question for you. Did you like this episode? If you did, I want to ask a huge favor.


See, the biggest thing that helps this podcast grow and that will spread this message of positivity and making the world a better place is if you leave a review or rating and subscribe to the podcast. What that does is it basically tells the platforms that this is out on, that you like my stuff and that I’m doing something right. So if you could take like three seconds out of your day and subscribe, leave a rating and review, I would be forever grateful for you. Also, I want to hear from you. I want to know your feedback, your ideas, and your questions for future episodes. So be sure to hit me up on Instagram in the DM @Josh Forti or via email
