Eastwood worked for a Yale University professor on a secret invention at a private research and development facility at age 13. "We know quantum physics has disproven the classical physics responsible for world problems. Internal Science and International Philosophy can solve world problems and help people achieve their goals."



Are Consciousness & Matter the Same Thing? What’s the Difference Between Mind & Physical Reality?

  • Are consciousness and matter the same thing?
  • What is the difference between the mind and physical reality?

I will answer these questions now.

Consciousness and matter are the same thing

Consciousness and matter are the same thing, only the intensity is generally less with thoughts. Both thoughts and the physical universe are constructed entirely of electromagnetic fields, as explained below.


Do scientists say that thoughts create matter?

Many top physicists do know that thoughts create matter and reality

Your thoughts can and do create matter. It is the rest of science, media and the world who do not want to listen to what they are saying.

Max Planck, Nobel Prize Winning father of quantum mechanics says, “I regard matter as a derivative from consciousness.” The Observer, 1931.



William Eastwood says that everything is consciousness

Eastwood interview in 1979.


Max Tegmark of MIT, says that consciousness is a state of matter.





In 1938, Einstein writes,

It seems as though we must use sometimes the one theory and sometimes the other, while at times we may use either. We are faced with a new kind of difficulty. We have two contradictory pictures of reality; separately neither of them fully explains the phenomena of light, but together they do.

— Albert Einstein, Leopold Infeld (1938). The Evolution of Physics: The Growth of Ideas from Early Concepts to Relativity and Quanta. Cambridge University Press.

The scientific proof and facts are overwhelming

If we extend Einstein’s suggestion above to several sources of knowledge, we come to a new understanding of reality itself.  To make sense of the discoveries of David Bohm and other scientists we need to gather together everything they are saying and put it together in a new way to bring us to a new picture of reality that makes sense.

If we combine certain popular theories in quantum physics, they all point in the same direction.

Physicist David Bohm, — who Albert Einstein called “a kindred spirit,” and who’s Ph.D. thesis (being top secret and classified) was awarded at the University of California at Berkeley by no other than Robert Oppenheimer — tells us that everything is connected and that each person’s physical life is a holographic projection of the mind.

Eastwood discovered that the universe was a projection of the mind in the 1970’s when he was only twelve years old. Eastwood began TESTING holographic reality principles in his youth, years before Bohm even published Wholeness and the Implicate Order” in 1980.

Why people see what they want to see, and create negative experiences

“Each person reads and experiences reality according to what they believe exists. If they hold a view of reality within themselves that is inherently limiting and/or negative, then this inner subjective reality and nothing else is projected outward into events and experiences so that everything conforms with their beliefs. They then cannot see anything outside of their own worldview. In effect, they become blind to any information that would free them from their inner and outer restricted reality.

“The negative focus on perceived enemies or opposition combined with the overlooked and unchecked power of consciousness and focus has been causing the world severe problems for a very long time only because we do not see the obvious.

“The solution is to understand that consciousness is altruistic.

“The people that seem evil don’t believe that the human spirit is basically good, and that’s the problem.

“My work is to explain that this is a scientifically validated fact in order to bring an end to global conflict and assist humanity in advancing into a new stage of incredible fulfillment, both private and public. That work begins with you.

“You can become a good or bad person in this life of yours — it is your choice.

“Yet, regardless of what you make of yourself in this life, your innermost soul is good. What you are at the deepest level IS good.”

— William Eastwood

A philosophy that WORKS LIKE MAGIC

A website article.


Each physicist’s theory represents one important piece of the puzzle. If you combine them properly, they lead us to where we need to be. They lead us to a unique understanding of reality. It becomes crystal clear and obvious that your thoughts can and do create your reality.


You can get lost trying to understand consciousness by reading scientific articles. I offer links to some excellent scientific studies as a courtesy to you only. I know in simple terms that the physical world is a projection we each create with our own consciousness. If four people enter a room, there are four rooms. I figured that out over four decades ago.

Consciousness is irreducible and is both individualized and part of an unbroken field. Quantum mechanics is the study of that field of energy. Your consciousness has very deep, eternal meaning that cannot be measured with a ruler, and so all scientific studies will miss that part of the picture.

All consciousness is of an equal, amazingly high grade; and just so you know, your personality and individuality will never be lost. Who you are will survive death. I am not a religious person, because I will add that you are also good, and most religions will say you are evil.

Ignorance is separation from truth, and it is the closest thing there is to evil. Our civilization has been based on separation from truth for centuries and we therefore do not even know where we come from! That shows just how ignorant we are.

Our civilization has been reading reality backwards for thousands of years. You cannot understand reality by looking at the physical world because that world is a consciousness hologram that you are creating. If you follow most scientists, they will just get you more confused.

I provide hundreds of articles and over a dozen books in plain English, and you do not need to be a scientist to understand any of it. Use your heart and intuition. All knowledge is within you, and you are a portion of the Divine consciousness that forms everything. You are forever safe and loved, and this will never change, not for a billion years.

For those who are interested I often begin my articles with some science because it is important to use your intellect. For something to be true it must make sense to you both intellectually and intuitively.

— William Eastwood


Understanding will change the world as we know it. Either we accept new knowledge and thrive individually and collectively or we become overtaken by violence and other problems and spiral into our demise. Fortunately, we do have free will.

Who is William Eastwood?
Eastwood today.


William Eastwood is an international philosopher, the founder of the Earth Network of Altruistic, Autonomous Individuals, Inc., and the author of this website and a positive philosophy THAT WORKS.


William Eastwood tested an emerging new science from an early age in a unique and comprehensive study

The new science he tested is primarily from David Bohm.

Physicist David Bohm, — who Albert Einstein called “a kindred spirit,” and who’s Ph.D. thesis (being top secret and classified) was awarded at the University of California at Berkeley by no other than Robert Oppenheimer — tells us that everything is connected.

David Bohm published “Quantum Theory,” the classic university text in 1951. David Bohm is largely responsible for holographic universe theory revealed in his book Wholeness and the Implicate Order,”  published in 1980.

Eastwood discovered that the universe was holographic in nature in the 1970’s when he was only twelve years old. Eastwood began TESTING holographic reality principles in his youth, years before Bohm even published “Wholeness and the Implicate Order” in 1980.

If you do good things, good things will happen to you.”

— William Eastwood quote at age seven.



William Eastwood is a humanitarian working to improve the world. His intelligence and intent to make a positive difference in the world was recognized by a Yale Professor when he was 13 years old. This is documented by the press in this public newspaper interview that took place when he was 16 years old.

In 2000, he incorporated Earth Network of Altruistic, Autonomous Individuals. This stock company mission was to become a vehicle for positive global change.


The altruistic movement toward a world without borders by William Eastwood for Earth Network and all people website article.


Eastwood’s international philosophy is unique in the manner in which it recognizes the good in all people.  His current websites and many positive books speak loudly of his unrelenting efforts to help humanity, and his intent to assist people in realizing their “unlimited” power and potential to improve their lives and the future of our civilization.



Bring an end to suffering and conflict globally; distribute food and supplies to where they are needed most in the world; provide opportunity to all people across the globe; transition humanity to a new era; transform public institutions and private lives; form a new field of science, and reform education systems globally.


Eastwood offers an incredibly positive philosophy to help us create what we desire in life as well as solve global problems.

The information is provided in five free websites and twenty books.

We are not the only ones saying there is a new paradigm in science that is being ignored, (click below for an example).




Objective science hasn’t answered important questions

What is an electromagnetic field?

The scientific establishment does not know what an electromagnetic field is.

If you ask a scientist what an electromagnetic field is, 99% will say “it is a fundamental entity, it’s not made of anything else, it just is what it is.” They leave that question to philosophers because they cannot answer it.

Further into this article I explain why traditional science cannot go deeper than electromagnetic energy. Science as it is traditionally practiced can probe down to the Zero Point Field, but no further. New science — Internal Science — however, can probe deeper. Using the methods of Internal Science, the concept of a CEU arises to explain what electromagnetic energy is composed of.


Science Does Not Know What Fields Are


A wave, electron (matter) and a photon are an excitation of an electromagnetic field; thus, a wave, electron (matter) and photon are in essence an electromagnetic field. All three are different states of the same thing—the fundamental electromagnetic field — so, what is an electromagnetic field?

The scientific establishment cannot tell you what electromagnetic fields are. A few will tell you, however, that consciousness is an electromagnetic field. I agree that consciousness is an electromagnetic field. It is also more. Consciousness contains properties of sound and light woven into its substance.


Consciousness Is an Electromagnetic Field


Those who believe in materialism / physicalism make a division between mind and matter. Doing so is an error. Everything is a state of consciousness. Even objects and events are a form of consciousness projected by and registered by our senses as a solid. It is our senses that create the impression that we call solid matter.

Everything is an electromagnetic field. Nothing else exists. All scientists will agree.

Since science as a whole does not know what an electromagnetic field is, orthodox science does not know what anything is. Yet science claims to know that thoughts do not create matter!

We can thus safely say that the formula below could be correct — it is not disproven.




Consciousness = Electromagnetic field = Matter



Are consciousness and matter the same thing? What is the difference between the mind and physical reality?


The world is in a dangerous trance


The world is in a dangerous trance, under an unnecessary damaging collective hypnosis.


How different paradigms required different methods of establishing facts

The premise of new science which I like to call Internal Science, is that consciousness creates everything in all dimensions of existence. Because consciousness is a subjective phenomena, this poses special problems for scientists who insist on objectivity.

Physical scientific instruments are designed to probe physical aspects of the universe. They cannot register or probe into the nonphysical subjective substance of the universe any more than a microscope can allow you to look at love or compassion. Consciousness always escapes the scrutiny of the physical instruments that traditionally science has used to study the universe.

In fact, the reason why the physicalism paradigm exists at all is because of this fact. The scientific instruments used in the scientific method of gathering information don’t see the vast inner reality of existence any more than our eyes see the air around us. As a result, inner reality is absent from the paradigm of reality that mainstream science settled on in the last two centuries.


To those who insist on the old belief systems and feel threatened by the new science I say, “I didn’t create the problems in the world today.”

I am offering the world something that actually works

William Eastwood on world problems and climate change
Eastwood today.

When it comes to solving world problems, the more conventional approaches don’t work — they are what got us into trouble in the first place. I am offering something different that will stop violence, division, unhappiness, illness, and will create peace and prosperity.



“The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment.”

Bernard d’Espagnat, a top theoretical physicist.



What does that statement mean?

It means that your consciousness is connected to physical objects. You can attract wealth, money, love, health or anything you want with the simple principles given in these books. I created these books to provide simple and easy to understand principles anyone and everyone can use to improve their life. These books all make your goals easy to achieve.


Thoughts create matter presents: The compounded placebo effect.
A website article.


Consciousness is a first substance, and out of it can only come more consciousness. Particles are just that — a mirage of our senses built up out of consciousness particles I call Consciousness Energy Units (CEU’s).

CEU’s follow the strange laws of quantum mechanics. They violate the laws of classical physics by moving through matter, being in two places at once and travelling faster than light.


CEU’s cannot be observed by scientific instruments because they are far too small. Many millions of them can fit in a virtual particle.


Objectivity cannot discern what exists in a subjective world. But consciousness itself can. Only consciousness can probe into the inner reality that forms the physical universe. Thus, consciousness must be used by science to go beyond current limits.

I want to emphasize that what I understand about CEU’s does not come from any traditional method of establishing facts, which would be impossible because of the extremely small size of CEU’s.

As a new scientist, I have gone beyond the limits of conventional science.

If a scientist trained in the old methods tried to do the same, he would get to the Zero Point Field and no further. Drawing diagrams of the particles there is futile because diagrams cannot convey the reality of what is actually in existence at that level any more than a stick figure could convey the reality of a human being,


A website article.


There is a really big difference between how new scientists gain understanding and traditional methods of ascertaining facts. The scientific method relies on physical instruments whereas Internal Science relies heavily on consciousness itself.

With physical instruments, science cannot probe beyond the smallest known particles. This limitation does not apply to new science however. One has to concede, therefore, that the methods used by new science are superior.

Consciousness can probe deeper into the physical universe than any physical scientific instrument can. However, consciousness can distort reality or we wouldn’t have a problem with conspiracy theories.

We thus are forced to gauge the accuracy of what is discovered using our understanding of reality. Intuitive knowledge must agree with intellectual assessment. This is only possible if we understand the basics about reality. Distortion is a product of false beliefs. If we think reality is purely physical like a rock is, then we have false beliefs that will distort our understanding. To compile facts about reality that are accurate we must understand that physical reality is a projection of consciousness.

I have lived within this paradigm my entire lifetime and what I have gained in this way is that CEU’s create reality. Electromagnetic energy is an expression of smaller CEU’s.


As previously written on the subject:

Because of their extremely small size, these units cannot be studied by physical instruments. Being composed of such units, however, implies that we are in possession of all information pertaining to the functioning of consciousness. Being composed of CEU’s, we possess the knowledge of CEU’s.

New science is geared toward methods of acquiring this information by probing inner reality via the vehicle of consciousness itself.  Those who are well trained can retrieve information in this way. The lesser the skill, the greater the distortion. However, there is a general consensus among those who are able to do this with a minimum of distortion.

I am a new scientist engaged in these activities. I use my own judgement and combine what I find out with the findings of others, and in this way I can provide you with relatively undistorted information.

Establishment scientists do not know what electrons are (since they are part of the electromagnetic field). The official scientific establishment does not know what photons are because they are an electromagnetic field.

The official scientific establishment does not know what consciousness is or what matter is. However, there is a method by which we can come to an understanding of what electromagnetic fields are, and thus have a better understanding of what physical matter and reality consist of.

New scientists are not held hostage by the limitations of traditional methods of probing the universe in order to discern facts and acquire a deeper understanding of reality.

Multidimensional travel through time and space.
A website article.


Einstein’s colleague, David Bohm explains that everything in existence is one unbroken field of energy which he calls the holomovement. He divides the universe into two states, 1) manifest and 2) unmanifest.

Bohm calls the unmanifest “information” or the implicate order, and the manifest he calls the explicate order.

The entire universe exists first as an inner energy of unlimited potentials. From an inner world of pure information and probable events, David Bohm says, that physical, observable phenomena unfold according to instructions given from within information in the wave. That process of manifestation has been called the collapse of the wave function by many scientists.




Science has also established that their are no physical particles, only fields of energy.


A website article.


If all of reality is one substance (as Bohm says it is), then that means that the un-manifest and manifest states are the same thing. This implies that your thoughts and matter are the same thing. Combine that conclusion with Bohm’s science that says information determines what manifests and it implies that everything is consciousness and consciousness forms matter.

Bohm’s holographic reality theory states that the mind, brain and five senses project reality. This is what Eastwood discovered in the 1970’s, years before Bohm published Wholeness and the Implicate Order” in the 1980s.

Take all these facts together and there is only one possible explanation.

It is this:


EASTWOOD: I published and copyrighted “C = Ef = M, but I did not arrive at that conclusion through complicated mathematical formulas. By virtue of the fact that all information is holographically enfolded in each “portion” of the universe, I can access that knowledge through my own consciousness, which is how I know that C = Ef = M is fundamentally correct. C = Ef = M is how the universe operates.

I do not necessarily agree with all that Bohm or any single scientists claims. But I know that taken together, all these scientific theories and facts point to C = Ef = M. That is confirmed.

Are Consciousness and Matter the Same Thing? What’s the Difference Between Mind & Physical Reality?

Scientists do not usually wonder if there is a nonphysical source for physical reality because the question would make no sense in light of widely accepted materialism. The scientific establishment and the entire civilization that gets its worldview from traditional science has long ago accepted the view that the world operates like a big physical machine.

Scientist do not know what electromagnetic fields are. They leave that question to philosophers (perhaps because they cannot answer it).

There is no real difference between consciousness and matter. This is not a theory this is just a fact. Consciousness and physical matter are both electromagnetic fields.
