Mathematician/philosopher/physicist Wolfgang Smith has chosen to emerge now, at the summit of his life’s work, in order to prepare a new generation for what he calls “a singular moment in history.” Is the so-called “quantum reality problem” actually the sign that a four-century arc of human history — what René Guénon has called “the reign of quantity” — is reaching its end?
The End of Quantum Reality — which also features Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Olavo de Carvalho, and narrator Richard DeLano — is being brought to you by the creative team behind The Principle (2014). Watch their latest trailer for a film designed to blow the doors off the quantum reality problem and signal the end of the Reign of Quantity.

Almost one hundred years ago, the project to reduce the world to mathematical physics failed suddenly and completely: “One of the best-kept secrets of science,” physicist Nick Herbert writes, “is that physicists have lost their grip on reality.” The world, we are now told, emerges spontaneously, out of “nothing,” and constitutes a “multiverse,” where “anything that can happen will happen, and it will happen an infinite number of times.”
Reclusive Wolfgang Smith demonstrates on shockingly obvious grounds the dead end at which physics has arrived, and how we can “return, at last, to the real world.”
“Wolfgang Smith broaches a vast range of subjects with a mastery that bespeaks an immense culture… It would be hard to exaggerate the importance of [his] work.”— Jean Borella, Professor of Philosophy, University of Nancy, France
“Here is that rare person who is equally at home with Eckhart and Einstein, Heraclitus and Heisenberg!”— Harry Oldmeadow, Professor of Philosophy, La Trobe University, Australia
“Wolfgang Smith is as important a thinker as our times boast.”— Huston Smith, Professor of Philosophy, M.I.T., and author of The World’s Religions
How can there be intelligence without consciousness?
Stuart Hameroff, co-founder of the Toward a Science of Consciousness conference, follows a brief overview…
In this exclusive interview with Dr. Alan Wallace we discuss consciousness, mathematics, practicing deep sleep states and meditation as preparation for dying consciously.
In this inspiring talk, the mathematician Edward Frenkel speaks about the beauty and elegance of mathematics
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.
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
There are many things that affect our mental health, from work-related stress to past traumas to whether or not we meditate each day.
Over the past century, the total number of physicists has grown exponentially, as has the number of…
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.
Three physicists wanted to calculate how neutrinos change. They ended up discovering an unexpected relationship between some of the most ubiquitous objects in math.
It was 18 months ago that I stumbled upon a short video on YouTube talking about the basics of Quantum Field Theory.
The true extent of da Vinci’s Renaissance mind is captured in the surviving notebooks...
A new model suggests that these subatomic particles may not be so fundamental after all.
Recent experiments have put relatively large objects into quantum states, illuminating the processes by which the ordinary world emerges out of the quantum one.
We've detected puny, stellar-mass black holes. And we've detected giant, supermassive black holes. But what about those in the middle?
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?
It's not only a big deal; it's the biggest deal of all.
Quantum field theory has made some incredibly accurate predictions about the universe, but it has also made some of the worst.
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.
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.
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.
These black hole opposites would spew energy, be impossible to enter, and might even answer some of the universe’s fundamental questions.
Scientists have discovered a distinct turbulent fluid pattern, surprisingly close to Kolmogorov’s equation, hidden in many of Van Gogh’s paintings.
On dark summer nights, away from city lights, I love to stargaze and imagine that I am dancing with the stars.
The “fittest” quantum properties make the most copies of themselves.
Sometimes in life, all the experience and knowledge simmering around in that ol’ consciousness of ours...
In physics, time exists but it has no preferred direction.
The Born rule, which connects the math of quantum theory to the outcomes of experiments, has been derived from simpler physical principles.
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.
In an incredible first, scientists have captured the world's first actual photo of quantum entanglement
Imagine for a moment being in a church where mathematics groups meet regularly to solve geometry problems…
