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 exclusive interview with Dr. Alan Wallace we discuss consciousness, mathematics, practicing deep sleep states and meditation as preparation for dying consciously.
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…
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.
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.
David Bohm was one of the most distinguished theoretical physicists of his generation, and a fearless challenger of scientific orthodoxy.
On dark summer nights, away from city lights, I love to stargaze and imagine that I am dancing with the stars.
Physicist Neils Bohr once said, “Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it.”…
Imagine for a moment being in a church where mathematics groups meet regularly to solve geometry problems…
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.
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
Over the past century, the total number of physicists has grown exponentially, as has the number of…
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.
It was 18 months ago that I stumbled upon a short video on YouTube talking about the basics of Quantum Field Theory.
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.
Billions of years ago, an iron nucleus forged in another galaxy was flung into space at close to the…
Two realities can exist at the same time, at least in the quantum world, suggests a new study.
There are many things that affect our mental health, from work-related stress to past traumas to whether or not we meditate each day.
In physics, time exists but it has no preferred direction.
