Chetan Prakash presents the idea of mathematics as a way of investigating reality, and how we have evolved to perceive it. He describes the creative process that discovers new mathematics, and speaks of the fact that it gets used by physicists and works as a mystery, and evidence that mathematics is a deep and fundamental part of the nature of mind itself.

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.
This video is about Bell's Theorem, one of the most fascinating results in 20th century physics.
In this exclusive interview with Dr. Alan Wallace we discuss consciousness, mathematics, practicing deep sleep states and meditation as preparation for dying consciously.
In a conversation from SAND Italy, Mauro Bergonzi and Shantena Sabbadini discuss how the scientific…
Time is a contentious topic in physics. Some physicists, such as Julian Barbour, argue that it doesn’t even exist. Others, such as Carlo Rovelli, hold that it arises as a secondary effect of deeper quantum processes.
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.
Over the past century, the total number of physicists has grown exponentially, as has the number of…
Q: How do quantum phenomena take part in photosynthesis and why is it important?
There are many things that affect our mental health, from work-related stress to past traumas to whether or not we meditate each day.
It was 18 months ago that I stumbled upon a short video on YouTube talking about the basics of Quantum Field Theory.
Since childhood I have been fascinated by holograms. The reason was the science fiction movie Star Wars and in 1984 I watched it for the first time.
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...
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.
On dark summer nights, away from city lights, I love to stargaze and imagine that I am dancing with the stars.
Quantum mechanics is known for its strangeness, from cats being dead and alive at the same time, to…
David Bohm was one of the most distinguished theoretical physicists of his generation, and a fearless challenger of scientific orthodoxy.
Astronomer Natalie Batalha embodies a planetary sense of what “love” is and means.
Quantum physics tells us that the state of a subatomic particle can only be known when the state of the particle is measured
Scientists have discovered a distinct turbulent fluid pattern, surprisingly close to Kolmogorov’s equation, hidden in many of Van Gogh’s paintings.
What’s wrong with mirrors? Most people know that they are backwards, reversing left and right sides,…
In physics, time exists but it has no preferred direction.
For well over a century, scientists have been wrestling with what quantum mechanics has been revealing to us about fundamental reality
