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.

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.
How can there be intelligence without consciousness?
A new model suggests that these subatomic particles may not be so fundamental after all.
Three physicists wanted to calculate how neutrinos change. They ended up discovering an unexpected relationship between some of the most ubiquitous objects in math.
No one really knows what happens inside an atom.
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 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.
Of the 2 trillion galaxies contained within our observable Universe, 94% are already forever beyond our reach
In a new paper, physicists argue that axions could explain why the universe isn’t empty
In a curved universe, no matter which direction you travel in, you will end up at the starting point
Recent experiments have put relatively large objects into quantum states, illuminating the processes by which the ordinary world emerges out of the quantum one.
The Big Bounce theory was once thought impossible. But two physicists have just resurrected it.
