Chris Fields, Ph.D.Independent Scientist

Chris FieldsChris Fields is an interdisciplinary information scientist interested in both the physics and the cognitive neuroscience underlying the human perception of objects as spatially and temporally bounded entities. His current research focuses on deriving quantum theory from classical information theory; he also works on cell-cell communication and cellular information processing, the role of the “unconscious mind” in creative problem solving, and early childhood development, particularly the etiology of autism-spectrum conditions.  He and his wife, author and yoga teacher Alison Tinsley, recently published Meditation: If You’re Doing It, You’re Doing It Right, in which they explore the experience of meditation with meditators from many walks of life.

Dr. Fields has also been a volunteer firefighter, a visual artist, and a travel writer. He currently divides his time between Sonoma, CA and Caunes Minervois, a village in southwestern France.

Science and Nonduality provides a forum where preeminent scientists, philosophers, teachers, artists and a large, international community gather to explore and advance the new paradigm emerging in spirituality, that is both grounded in cutting-edge science and consistent with the ancient wisdom of nonduality — the deep understanding of the interconnectedness of life.

    Christopher Field’s fascinating insights and discussions relating to neuroscience made me think about how there often is no right or left/ up or down- but is the development of a necessary construct. Just as I am now practicing the Awareness that my brain is receiving and flipping the observational signals I see the in the real world into its necessary stimulus input, at one time I caught Christopher Field’s ‘reverse reflection’ in the “True Mirror” made by John Walter at the SAND conference/ 2014 in San Jose. > (

    Thank you for your work.

    The eastern efforts at parentheses removal are like the Amazon tributaries.

    One school attempted to remove attachment to the parentheses, and took it to five Chinese words. The words do not separate forms of action, they indicate different aspects of action.

    The Japanese monk, Nichiren, added Nam and thereby engaged neuroplasticity. The ensuing mantra dissolves parentheses.
