An excerpt from the interview with Catherine Pepin featured in the Science and Nonduality Anthology Vol. 5.
CATHERINE PÉPIN, PH.D. Theoretical Physicist, Institute of Theoretical Physics, Saclay, France In 2005, she received a strong spiritual call which told her that in addition to the wonders of Scientific endeavour, there is an unmistakable Otherness, a presence impalpable to the mind. She was exposed to a number of spiritual teachings and experiences, starting in June 2006 with the meeting of late Stephen Jourdain’. In 2007, she went through a Shamanic initiation involving Iboga and Ayahuasca, the African and South Amazon sacred plants known to open doors of the Spirit. She also joined Andrew Cohen and his teaching on Evolutionary Enlightenment, for several years. Today, she is developing her own path, and is convinced that the spiritual call she received in 2005, while she was still a fundamentally materialistic scientist, was not an accident . It was an experience of a universal longing in the human Soul for a deep and uncompromising re-union of Science and Spirit.

In this exclusive interview with Dr. Alan Wallace we discuss consciousness, mathematics, practicing deep sleep states and meditation as preparation for dying consciously.
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.

Is math an invention of the human brain? Or does math exist in some abstract world, with humans merely discovering its truths? The debate has been raging since the time of the ancient Greeks.
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.
David Bohm was one of the most distinguished theoretical physicists of his generation, and a fearless challenger of scientific orthodoxy.

It was on the edge of Berlin on July 14, 1930, that science and spirituality came together in one of the most intellectually stimulating conversations in history
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.
When we ask ourselves why we think time exists, most of us would say: because we see everything changing, always.
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.
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.
Two realities can exist at the same time, at least in the quantum world, suggests a new study.
