Yes we are on a path, but on a path of realizing that there is no where to get to… it is just waking up to the truth of our own being…
Wave-particle duality, the uncertainty principle, the collapse of the wave function, and entanglement all point to awareness being an intrinsic aspect of reality. Yet we are still trying to understand these phenomena within a worldview that assumes the real world to be that of space, time, and matter, and relegates consciousness to some artifact of brain processes. Yet the one thing of which we are certain is that we are aware. And it is the one thing the current worldview cannot account for. This profound anomaly will ultimately lead to the full paradigm shift to which contemporary physics is, unwittingly, pointing. With consciousness as primary, everything remains the same and everything changes. Mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry are unchanged. What changes is our assumption as to what they are describing. They are not describing the unfolding of a physical world, but the unfolding of a universal self-aware field.
We are led to the conclusion that the entire cosmos is a vast field of knowing, knowing itself, and in that knowing creating for itself the appearance of a material world. Why then don’t we see it that way? Why does the material world appear devoid of consciousness?
Looking for consciousness in the material world – the world that appears in awareness – is like searching a map to find the paper on which the map is drawn. The closest we can come is a sign saying “You Are Here.”
From the deep pools of Eastern wisdom, to the fast-paced rapids of the West, Peter has mastered many fields, and synthesized them with consummate artistry. He brings a sharp, critical mind to the challenge of self-awakening. The next great frontier of human exploration, he shows, is inner space - the development of the human mind. He
has degrees in theoretical physics, experimental psychology, and computer science from the University of Cambridge in England, and has written ten books in this area, including The Global Brain Awakens, Waking Up in Time, and From Science to God: A Physicist’s Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness.

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.
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
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…
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.
Q: How do quantum phenomena take part in photosynthesis and why is it important?
We've detected puny, stellar-mass black holes. And we've detected giant, supermassive black holes. But what about those in the middle?
The Born rule, which connects the math of quantum theory to the outcomes of experiments, has been derived from simpler physical principles.
David Bohm was one of the most distinguished theoretical physicists of his generation, and a fearless challenger of scientific orthodoxy.
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.
On dark summer nights, away from city lights, I love to stargaze and imagine that I am dancing with the stars.
In less than 30 years, humanity has discovered more than 4,000 exoplanets
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.
The idea that the universe splits into multiple realities with every measurement has become an increasingly popular proposed solution to the mysteries of quantum mechanics.
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...
When we ask ourselves why we think time exists, most of us would say: because we see everything changing, always.
Sometimes in life, all the experience and knowledge simmering around in that ol’ consciousness of ours...
Quantum physics tells us that the state of a subatomic particle can only be known when the state of the particle is measured
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
Billions of years ago, an iron nucleus forged in another galaxy was flung into space at close to the…
The existence of an ether – an all-pervading medium composed of a subtler kind of matter – has been taught by mystic philosophers throughout the ages.
From the comfortable seat of our bodies (and built-in brains), it’s easy to think that 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's not only a big deal; it's the biggest deal of all.
Astronomer Natalie Batalha embodies a planetary sense of what “love” is and means.
