We present an extraordinary breakthrough from String theory that explains the “spooky action-at-a-distance” nature of quantum entanglement, and ties this long-distance phenomenon directly to space-time wormholes—tunnels through space. We also present cutting-edge evidence that consciousness originates deep within the physical realm—in quantum gravity and superstring theory (unified field theory). Some scientists (e.g., Penrose) have made the radical proposal that consciousness originates from Planck-scale mechanisms rooted in quantum gravity. We explicitly conform this hypothesis using remarkable new findings from String theory and M-theory—“Holographic Duality.” We also show how these core, Planck-scale mechanics of consciousness relate to brain-scale cognitive functioning—i.e., how Consciousness enters the brain. We explain the key difference between content-free consciousness (Samadhi) and waking consciousness (awareness of content), and provide the key to experiencing both Samadhi and permanent Samadhi—Enlightenment.
This video is about Bell's Theorem, one of the most fascinating results in 20th century physics.
Stuart Hameroff, co-founder of the Toward a Science of Consciousness conference, follows a brief overview…
Donald Hoffman reminds us that we can predict people's choices up to seven seconds before they are conscious of making that choice.
In this inspiring talk, the mathematician Edward Frenkel speaks about the beauty and elegance of mathematics
In this exclusive interview with Dr. Alan Wallace we discuss consciousness, mathematics, practicing deep sleep states and meditation as preparation for dying consciously.
Ever wonder how we try to predict the unpredictable? Supercomputers use the power of chaos theory.
How can there be intelligence without consciousness?
According to Ervin Laszlo, the coherence of the atom and the galaxies is the same coherence that keeps living cells together, cooperating to form life.
It is precisely science that makes the key point shine most brightly: the point that there is a fundamental respect in which ultimate intrinsic nature of the stuff of the universe is unknown to us — except insofar as it is consciousness.
Discrepancies in measures of expansion may point to new physics
In less than 30 years, humanity has discovered more than 4,000 exoplanets
Q: How do quantum phenomena take part in photosynthesis and why is it important?
Astronomer Natalie Batalha embodies a planetary sense of what “love” is and means.
The “fittest” quantum properties make the most copies of themselves.
What’s wrong with mirrors? Most people know that they are backwards, reversing left and right sides,…
If you were to stand outside the universe—outside both space and time—and look at your life, you would see your birth, your death and every moment in between laid out as distinct points.
We've detected puny, stellar-mass black holes. And we've detected giant, supermassive black holes. But what about those in the middle?
From the comfortable seat of our bodies (and built-in brains), it’s easy to think that consciousness…
For well over a century, scientists have been wrestling with what quantum mechanics has been revealing to us about fundamental reality
Sometimes in life, all the experience and knowledge simmering around in that ol’ consciousness of ours...
How did great mathematicians like Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein make the leap from understanding basic mathematical concepts to answering fundamental questions about the Universe?
Quantum particles, the foundation of the universe, are like naughty children playing catch me if you can with scientists in a game with no rules.
In an incredible first, scientists have captured the world's first actual photo of quantum entanglement
The most famous case study in science, prior to Freud, was published in 1728 in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society by the English surgeon William Cheselden, who attended Newton in his final illness.
Quantum field theory has made some incredibly accurate predictions about the universe, but it has also made some of the worst.
Two realities can exist at the same time, at least in the quantum world, suggests a new study.
Quantum physics tells us that the state of a subatomic particle can only be known when the state of the particle is measured
In our everyday life, time flows in one direction—forward. When you put a frozen pizza in the hot oven, the pizza heats up. When you hit a baseball, it flies over the wall (if you’re having a good day at bat). When you knock a coffee mug off a table...
David Bohm was one of the most distinguished theoretical physicists of his generation, and a fearless challenger of scientific orthodoxy.
Most of my life was spent as a materialist. I regarded physical matter as the basis of reality. From matter emerged biological organisms such as humans, which developed brains, and out of the brain emerged consciousness.
