Do We Really Know What's Real? The Most Optimistic Answer Is Maybe

Posted by schil105 on August 3, 2015 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (4)

By Deepak Chopra, MD, and Menas Kafatos, PhD

For a very long time, if you wanted to know if something is real or not, the go-to people have been scientists. The rise of rationality over superstition is considered the single greatest achievement of the past three or four centuries. So it's startling news--as we discussed in the last post--that physics has arrived at a reality crisis. Three great unsolved mysteries remain, and they are the same riddles asked by ancient Greek philosophers:...

Physics' Split Personality: Is the Dark Side Winning?

Posted by schil105 on July 28, 2015 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (0)

By Deepak Chopra, MD, and Menas Kafatos, PhD

 

For some time now most of the universe has gone dark. This startling news was brought to popular attention in a June Op-Ed piece in the New York Times called "A Crisis at the Edge of Physics." It began, "Do physicists need empirical evidence to confirm their theories?" In other words, once you work out a theoretical explanation for how Nature works, do you need evidence to prove it?

 

The answer seems like an obv...

The Spookie Mind

Menas C. Kafatos PhD


In a recent plenary talk that I gave at the Science and Nonduality conference Oct. 23 - 26, in San Jose, California, I spoke of the Nonlocal, Entangled, Conscious Universe: From the Spookiness of Limited Mind to the Undivided Wholeness of Reality. It is obvious that the mind shapes the kind of reality we experience. This statement ...

What Is Cosmic Consciousness? The Quest for Hidden Reality (Part 3)

Posted by schil105 on April 7, 2014 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (0)

By Deepak Chopra, M.D, FACP, and Menas Kafatos, Ph.D.

We are so used to assigning consciousness only to human thought that it takes some adjustment to see it as universal, or cosmic, applying at all levels. But the label applied to mystics, saints, and sages, both East and West, really denotes those who have escaped the limitations of everyday ...

What Is Cosmic Consciousness? The Quest for Hidden Reality (Part 2)

By Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP, and Menas Kafatos, Ph.D.

The question at hand is whether there is such a thing as higher consciousness? We are using the term “cosmic consciousness” to denote a state of awareness that knows itself completely, a state of inner silence that is in direct contact with existence. Such a state would be free, without suffering or limitation. If ...

Menas C. Kafatos PhD

PART I

In previous blog posts I made the case that science needs to proceed to the next paradigm shift, despite resistance from defenders of current beliefs, many of which are outdated and hold back true scientific progress. Science, being the central pillar of intellectual and technological components of modern societies...

What Is Cosmic Consciousness? The Quest for Hidden Reality

Posted by schil105 on January 19, 2014 at 4:45 PM Comments comments (0)

By Deepak Chopra, M.D., FACP, and Menas Kafatos, Ph.D.

 

Is there such a thing as higher consciousness? For a tiny fraction of the population, who believe they have experienced God directly, this is a spiritual question with a definite answer. But for most people the question is hypothetical. Every spiritual tradition has asserted that there is a hidden reality whic...
