The Physics of God: Unifying Quantum Physics, Consciousness, M-Theory, Heaven, Neuroscience and Transcendence

This is a fascinating and highly informed and informative book.

For those who would rather listen to the audiobook, which is what I first stumbled upon.

I believe in a creator, but I don't believe the type of supreme being described in the bible. I also don't believe the creator is above the universe. I believe his origin began out of the universe.

Please expound. Are you saying the universe created the Creator?

And please, let’s not anthropomorphize the “Ground of All Being(s).”

by Anonymousreply 4Last Tuesday at 7:10 PM

R3 yes I'm saying the Universe created the supreme intelligent being that people often refer to as God. I believe the God was the first of all creation by the Universe, and then through God everything else was created.

"pervasive material bias of science"?

R4 I think the Ground of All Being anthropomorphized us, if truth be told.

I listened to him read the whole book.... some of the "near death" stuff was a stretch, but exploration of what quantum physics is suggesting now is well worth it.

R13 Man also created science, R13. Fact.

R16 Obviously you listened some time back. What was your biggest takeaway?

by Anonymousreply 18Last Tuesday at 7:29 PM

Well, that's a hard/big question. I guess the details showing, in scientific language, about how ignorant it is to accept reality with the usual understandings. The very nature of reality, as science is revealing, is deeper, different, more sacred than just a human body with a mind made by evolutionary principles only.

The details of the "physical" world align to cosmic, contemplative traditions. Atheism is a bet against the odds.

by Anonymousreply 19Last Tuesday at 7:37 PM

Does the author have any recognized qualifications in physics and neuroscience, whatsoever? Does he even hold a B.S.?

by Anonymousreply 20Last Tuesday at 7:37 PM

R20 I don’t think so, but the forward to his book was written by “the internationally known quantum physicist, Dr. Amit Goswami,” dammit!

by Anonymousreply 21Last Tuesday at 7:41 PM

[quote]Joseph studied ancient Western cultures at the University of Colorado and ancient Eastern cultures at UC Berkeley. He has had a keen interest in ancient history since grade school. He has taught and lectured on the principles of Eastern philosophy for over thirty years. Joseph lives with his wife at Ananda Village, a spiritual community in Northern California.

R19 I too find his explanations of basic physics both accessible and fascinating.

by Anonymousreply 23Last Tuesday at 7:43 PM

Goswani was a professor of theoretical physics at Univ of Oregon and fairly well published. The author is student/practitioner of spiritual traditions... not a scientist, nor does he claim any expertise as a physicist. But I've read/studied quantum physics a lot in recent years, and R23 is right, he's gifted in his ability to make very complex ideas and theories engaging and understandable.

by Anonymousreply 24Last Tuesday at 7:47 PM

R22 notice there is no mention of actual diplomas.

E21 well Goswami is a real physicist and specializes in this realm of science/spiritual, so I'd rather read his book.

R25 Relax, toots. Give it a read or listen. It won’t bite or convert you.

by Anonymousreply 26Last Tuesday at 7:51 PM

But he's not attractive!

by Anonymousreply 27Last Tuesday at 7:52 PM

R25 Well, not a perfect analogy. Herbert Spencer was 19th century economist (who claimed the poor were responsible for their fate0, and Charles Dickens (not an economist) wrote brilliantly to show the reality of the poor in the 19th century..

The Creator is as nestled in the quark as the cosmos are in the Creator.

Hans Bethe was my physics prof and I'm a snarky cunt about qualifications.

by Anonymousreply 30Last Tuesday at 8:04 PM

R30 Oh really, now. Do tell.

by Anonymousreply 31Last Tuesday at 8:10 PM

Not a quark. An electron, an up quark and a down quark. Everything in the universe is made up of, is built from... these three.

The rule of three. The trinity.

(personally I've always though that reality gets smaller than the quarks.... all the way down infinitely in that direction, just like the universes reaching infinitely into "outer" space... but that's just me)

by Anonymousreply 32Last Tuesday at 8:17 PM

No big story to tell. Bethe was my prof at Cornell, as was the much younger Carl Sagan. I wasn't deeply interested in physics but I loved taking courses with heavyweights.

R32 Oh shit, me too! I once had a dream in which one of my eyes was looking through a telescope and the other eye through a microscope, and my vision extended farther and farther [italic]and[/italic] deeper and deeper at increasing speeds until everything looked the same and suddenly everything went LIGHT. It always reminded me of the end of that Kerouac quote about the “mad ones.”

It all sped, sped, sped, and “burn[ed], burn[ed], burn[ed] like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’”

When you combine facts (science) with fiction (religion), you don't wind up with elucidation.

R37 This. Let's stop with these nonsense attempts to accommodate science and religion. Religion contributes nothing to the search for actual knowledge.

by Anonymousreply 40Last Thursday at 11:01 PM

R40 = old thinking. Let's stop being mired in old thinking. "Actual knowledge" is more than STEM - poetry, literature, music, philosophy generate profound understanding of our experience of consciousness. Philosophy itself conjectures about the nature of reality in ways you likely call nonsense. You are stuck in Bertrand Russell's mind, forgetting that Heidegger, Wittgenstein, Jean Baudrillard and others lived.

by Anonymousreply 42Yesterday at 3:04 AM

R41 I said religion contributes nothing, not philosophy. Philosophy does not deal in "revealed" truth, and is still to be kept distinct from science.

by Anonymousreply 43Yesterday at 6:11 AM

R42 lol!

by Anonymousreply 44Yesterday at 7:18 AM

R43 Silly firefly. Religion and philosophy are two points on the same continuum. Science, by the way, reveals the truth it knows provisionally. O thalidomide, bow down to the Altar of the Double Blind!
