Peter Russell speaks at SAND 2016 gathering about the nature of the quantum, light and its relationship to space and time.
From the deep pools of Eastern wisdom, to the fast-paced rapids of the West, Peter Russell has mastered many fields, and synthesized them with consummate artistry. Weaving his unique blend of scientific rationale, global vision, and intuitive wisdom, Peter brings a sharp, critical mind to the challenge of self-awakening. The next great frontier of human exploration, he shows, is not outer space, but 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 most recently, From Science to God: A Physicist’s Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness.
The laws of physics imply that the passage of time is an illusion. To avoid this conclusion, we might have to rethink the reality of infinitely precise numbers.
Scientists believe that mysterious dark matter is key to forming galaxies in the cosmos. Now, a recent series of bizarre findings threatens to undermine everything we think we know.
Observers are powerful players in the quantum world.
Neuroscience and psychology have been unable to address the hard problem of consciousness
Any theory of quantum gravity is going to have to grapple with some weird time stuff.
New evidence shows that the key assumption made in the discovery of dark energy is in error
Recent experiments have put relatively large objects into quantum states, illuminating the processes by which the ordinary world emerges out of the quantum one.
In a curved universe, no matter which direction you travel in, you will end up at the starting point
A new proof in computer science also has implications for researchers in quantum mechanics and pure mathematics
We've detected puny, stellar-mass black holes. And we've detected giant, supermassive black holes. But what about those in the middle?
So-called “information realism” has some surprising implications
