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 β€” the deep understanding of the interconnectedness of life.

    I would like to share with Dr. Kafatos the ideas and receive his feedback about this paper where duality is scrambled to allocate different levels of
    solid and wave-like energy to build “independent” universes with
    distinct vibrational frequencies. Our 3D universe is compared to the 3D
    p-orbital of atoms. The Big Bang is represented as the creation of
    duality from a non-dual initial state or universe. Time is considered a
    wave-particle with high wave-like energy and very low solid energy: Thanks.

    I think the mind of Dr. Menas Kafatos is one of the most exemplary of the Human species! His open mind, and range of Exploration in his field is most admirable. At the SAND/ Esalen retreat this past February, his depth of research spanned from his deep background in Physics to Kashmir Shaiivism. He is also very Friendly to have breakfast with, Honest and personable about his field and Respective point of view, of which you can tell he has spent a great deal of personal enthusiasm in developing over his life.

    Of course, the concluding Panel Discussions are some of the best because it is at this time when the entire group discussion can begin to open up with deeper engagement:

    Dr. Menas Kafatos speaking at the February/ 2015 Esalen Retreat in Big Sur, California. What a pleasure it is to get to speak with, and learn so intimately with someone who has devoted their life to Science and can reflect with such depth about Earth systems, and currents in today’s science, while also coming from a very deep historical perspective. He has certainly given me much to think about!
