Dr Fred Alan Wolf talks Quantum Physics on Thinking Allowed

Quantum Physics. What is it? I hear it mentioned in spiritual circles constantly. I know the famous atheist Richard Dawkins sees it as a new crutch for spiritual folk to turn to when cornered by the prickly rational sorts. A get out clause, a new age myth loosely based on science. It gives credibility to any spiritual argument because it is technically scientific, but really based on nothing and completely unexplainable. In this, I find its vital element. The quest to explain the unexplainable will surely fascinate humans at a higher state of consciousness until the end of our days. The shamans are there, but in our concrete boxes, we can only seek crumbs of understanding from people like Fred Alan Wolf, a man I could watch talking all day long.

Here is Dr Wolf on a strange talk show, but he lights it up as he talks of a fascination in magic and a ‘spiritual universe’.

The meeting of the spiritual world with the scientific is a fascinating connection being made in these times. The rational mind meets a concept of infinite potential. I first saw Dr Wolf on a documentary about the Dalai Lama, where he was briefing the Dalai Lama on the advancements in Quantum Physics. A field I know that Tibetan Buddhism is very interested in and sees many parallels with its own teaching.

Dr Wolf talks with Mr Mishlove about philosophy and the spiritual worlds relation to modern science.  What is the soul?

Thinking Allowed (http://www.thinkingallowed.com/)

Is an in-depth independent TV show, that interviews some of the world’s top intellectuals.  For me, it is becoming the education I would have liked to received at school or university, if I’d have had any idea what was going on back then.  Someone should have told me this!  I am now getting this education via youtube.  An enlightening show.
