What does western science, in fact the best science we have, quantum mechanics, have to do with oriental medicine? Physicist Menas C. Kafatos and neuroscientist Keun-Hang Susan Yang claim a lot. The underlying principles that derive from the quantum world are universal and they would also apply to the ancient systems of oriental medicine. In this provocative article published in the Elsevier Integrative Medicine Research, the authors propose that western science and eastern medicine may have close links, surprisingly perhaps through the viewpoint of quantum mechanics. To the authors, this is not surprising, it is a natural and expected link of the non-dual universe.
