This video is an excerpt from an interview with Dr. Alan Wallace. He has been a scholar and practitioner of Buddhism since 1970, and has taught Buddhist theory and meditation worldwide since 1976. Having devoted fourteen years to training as a Tibetan Buddhist monk, ordained by H. H. the Dalai Lama, he went on to earn an undergraduate degree in physics and the philosophy of science at Amherst College and a doctorate in religious studies at Stanford.

These black hole opposites would spew energy, be impossible to enter, and might even answer some of the universe’s fundamental questions.
Observers are powerful players in the quantum world.
Recent experiments have put relatively large objects into quantum states, illuminating the processes by which the ordinary world emerges out of the quantum one.
New evidence shows that the key assumption made in the discovery of dark energy is in error
If you were to go as far out into space as you can imagine, what would you encounter?
The “fittest” quantum properties make the most copies of themselves.
In a new paper, physicists argue that axions could explain why the universe isn’t empty
In an incredible first, scientists have captured the world's first actual photo of quantum entanglement
No one really knows what happens inside an atom.
Scientists believe that mysterious dark matter is key to forming galaxies in the cosmos. Now, a recent series of bizarre findings threatens to undermine everything we think we know.
You wouldn’t find baseballs entangled in such a way that hitting one affects another miles away.
In a curved universe, no matter which direction you travel in, you will end up at the starting point
The laws of physics imply that the passage of time is an illusion. To avoid this conclusion, we might have to rethink the reality of infinitely precise numbers.
Three physicists wanted to calculate how neutrinos change. They ended up discovering an unexpected relationship between some of the most ubiquitous objects in math.
Of the 2 trillion galaxies contained within our observable Universe, 94% are already forever beyond our reach
