Want to study more about Consciousness and Quantum Physics?

Previously I mentioned that I was delving into studying Consciousness, Quantum Physics and String Theory.  Obviously my lifetime will probably not be long enough to get a full grasp on any one of these areas of study, but I have found it empowering to begin to get a tiny hold on some of the more general concepts related to these fields of study.  Most importantly has been the scientific discoveries that back up my intuitive understanding of the world and our role as human beings.

The philosophic underpinnings of Yoga, Buddhism and Native American cultures have one core component that is continually returned to within cutting edge science.  Every entity, whether biological or not, is connected to the rest of the universe.  This connection is not esoteric or imaginary, the connection is real and measurable.  Much of how we think of ourselves may be due to our limited ability to comprehend the truth.  Separation itself may be a grand illusion that serves to provide us with a structure from which to organize ‘our reality’.  The quantum physics of energy is where most yogis will start to get really excited.

For those of you who would like to join me on this path of discovery I have provided a recommended reading list below.  The list is interactive with amazon.com but most  of the books are available at the Boise Public Library.  Please share with me what you uncover.

A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking

The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe by Lynne McTaggart

The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness by Bruce H. Lipton

The Mind and the Brain: Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force by Jeffrey Schwartz

Unconditional Love

“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get–only with what you are expecting to give–which is everything.”

~Katherine Hepburn

“Only when we give joyfully, without hesitation or thought of gain, can we truly know what love means.”

“Intense love does not measure, it just gives.”

Consciousness, Quantum Physics, String Theory and Psychology?

I began studying yoga psychology completely unaware that it would throw me simultaneously into the study of neurophysiology and quantum physics. At times I find my brain feeling a bit scrambled. Most of the science thrills me and only makes me dig deeper for more information, but the topic of spacetime geometry makes my head hurt.

Some web sources to get you started:

  1. http://superstringtheory.com/
  2. www.youtube.com/watch?v=_B0Kaf7xYMk
  3. http://physics.about.com/od/quantumphysics/p/quantumphysics.htm
  4. http://www.quantumconsciousness.org/penrose-hameroff/cajal.pdf

Does anyone have some suggestions for beginners resources on information about quantum physics and/or spacetime geometry?

A challenge worth the effort…

“Anyone can see the ugliness in the world. Real skill comes by seeing the beauty.”

The above amaryllis bulb is beautiful as it is, but holds within it the potential to grow into a beauty of breathtaking proportions. Every stage of life holds it’s own beauty and potential. What about the beauty of death that gives way for new life?
