He cited evidence from both theories that support a new paradigm of a more interrelated, fluid, and less absolute basis of existence, one in which mind is an active participant. ‘Information contributes fundamentally to qualities of substance.’ He discussed forms, fields, superconductivity, wave function and electron behavior. ‘Wave function, which operates through form, is closer to life and mind... The electron has a mindlike quality.’” (1)
The early quantum physicists like Neils Bohr were ridiculed by those who could not comprehend majesty of their attempts to explain our reality. The debunker’s inductive reasoning which imposes direct inferential theory upon nature has caused a setback that science has yet to overcome. Despite their stated fear of religion these theories are in fact doing what Dark Ages did to sincere seekers of truth. It was dawning of a New Age which revived ancient Chaos Science. Our whole computerized creative and productive world is largely a function of these ‘atom mysticists’. In response to that epithet they have driven message home by showing over and over again that most know-nothing scientists are in cahoots with ignorance or worse. Michio Kaku of 'Hyperspace' does it well.
These giants of intellect found soul of Mandukya Upanishads (Wigner) and S-Matrix math in Tao Te Ching (Capra). Heisenberg ‘observed’ as cat appeared, or did not, depending on whether Schrödinger was there to witness. All Zen aficionados were overjoyed to see Western predilection for linear thinking in boxes was being changed from within. A far greater amount of possibility-thinking and real independent inquiry has resulted. All theatres of thought are now called post-Modern by ‘experts’ in ivory towers who are usually wrong. Bohr said, ‘A great truth has an opposite which is also true. A trivial truth has an opposite which is false.’
The Club of Rome is doing a lot of good analysis of issues and need for multi-disciplinarian principles in a new technological era. Here is something they say which I heartily approve of.
“Systems of education are less and less adapted to new issues, to new emerging global society we are presently involved in. New priorities force us to redefine role of education, which should be conceived as a permanent learning process. Transmission of knowledge is no longer sufficient, and new objectives such as developing one's own potential and creativity, or capacity of adaptation to change are becoming essential in a rapidly changing world.
The Club of Rome considers that education is both part of global problematique and also an essential tool to become an effective actor in control of one's own life and within society. If there are "Limits to Growth", there are "No Limits to Learning" (titles of two Reports to Club of Rome).” (2)
In area of physics Classical Electromagnetic Model or particles and force constructs, have given way to wave behavior models that allow harmonic interaction and affinity across space-time as I see it. There are some people who have such an ingrained or visceral response to mystical concepts that it makes one wonder how effective our propaganda paradigm that has waged war on enablement of soul in each living thing has been. The space-time interval is only invariant in same frequency realms and astrophysicists know gravity is an instantaneous effect. Brian Greene is first physicist with 'groupies' according to George Stephanopoulos, one time Clinton Press Secretary. Greene wrote ELEGANT UNIVERSE a best-seller that explains String Theory and how it could answer some of deepest aspects of human experience. He made a major contribution in 1992 that showed how fabric of space could tear and repair itself. This is not possible according to relativity and its expression of space/time continuum. The existence of anti-matter and 'black holes' are quite a conundrum for science that finds itself proving mystics understandings - 'fast and furious'.
My premise at its worst is that we must understand mystics even if they are wrong about reality. There will be little achieved by constantly negating whatever reality they have been able to ‘see’ and there has been a lot of advancement in science that proves they were right. But when told that this line of reasoning is religious or ‘airy-fairy’ I can only say – if we do not know how sages or great minds saw reality how can we expect to help make a new reality that is better? How can you call Pythagoras weird (for example) when he contributed so much? How can people be so silly when they know they can’t do what he did? Is it ego that makes man so closed-minded? Here is a response to a physicist who sees (finally) that I have gathered words of top scientists, who agree with me. He seeks to rationalize ‘One’ and understand ego – which is a start at least.
Rational? Is that missing from work of philosophers like Sartre who said 'Love is absent space'. No - what is missing is an appeal to reductive and gradualistic paradigm ego or need for POWER above all else. But that need for power actually produces less power and plentitude.
I tell you this - you do not know consciousness or it's origin and you can find best explanations in ancient writings and disciplines like Sutras. It works!
Is what works rational? Not necessarily. Rational and religion or anthropomorphing urge of ego is everywhere evident in non-cooperative mindsets.
Here is way I could say it off top of my head.
In beginning there was energy in many dimensions. These dimensions gradually got in touch at some distance with information carried on attractive forces like gravity. These contacts grew and pathways formed - see my article called Affinity under those Google links or here. The pathways became lattices and vectors and valences of these energies which began to design ways to form new harmonizing potentials.
Laws of behavior and some kind of design began to actualize or manifest and over trillions of years a lot of knowledge and ways of creating became way of world or universes.
Consciousness came later and soul is an outgrowth of this collective which directs us through structures and lattices (helical and otherwise - time has a helical structure and seven layers too) in likes of DNA.
