Quantum Leap of Faith
Rather than thinking about your experience as the be-all and end-all of reality, take a giant step back and see yourself and the Earth in the grand landscape of space and time," suggests Brian Greene, PhD, an expert in superstring theory (which posits that there are 10 dimensions of space). Greene, who has made quantum physics accessible through books like The Elegant Universe, says, "Take an even larger step back and visualize the innumerable parallel universes you may be inhabiting, living out your life in different ways." In other words, imagine all your possible selves—thinner, fitter, organized—as already within you. "A change of perspective," he says, "is often the most powerful way to make a change."
