The Spiritual Implications of Quantum PhysicsReflections on the Nature of Science, Reality and Paradigm Shifts
This book is about science and how it works. It is about what it means for a paradigm to shift and what it really takes to shift it. And it is about the strange and unusual world of quantum physics and relativity theory, and what it tells us about who we are.
At the start of the 20th Century, a dramatic revolution in science occurred. Over the course of a few decades our most fundamental notions of time, space and consciousness were all being called into question. In undeniable ways, it became clear that the nature of reality is intimately interwoven with our experience of it. We are not separate objective observers of a realty that exists independent of us. We co-create the reality that we experience.
In this concise and clearly written book, you will learn about things that common sense would tell you should not be possible. And these are not results lying at the outer fringes of science; these are experimental results that no scientist doubts. The question this book addresses is this; Why, after nearly a century, have the radical implications of the new physics had so little impact on our everyday experience of reality?
In these pages, Jeff Carreira draws on his training in science, meditation, and mystical philosophy, to create a unique exploration of this fascinating topic. All along the way, you will be guided to examine and question some of your most fundamental assumptions about what is possible, and you will be amazed to see how the way you think about reality actually shapes your experience of it.
