Conversations Beyond Science and Religion – Henry Stapp and The Mindlike Reality

This week’s guest, Henry Stapp, “one of the foremost minds of our generaton,” worked with Wolfgang Pauli and Werner Heisenberg, two of the founders of modern quantum theory. This theory, which toppled the classical mechanical worldview, is still slowly permeating modern thought, a century after its formulation. Dr. Stapp, in his many books, including The Mindful Universe and the upcoming The Mindlike Reality, takes a conservative, mathematical approach to interpretting quantum theory but reaches the bold conclusion that we dwell in a mind-centered reality. Listen in as host Philip Mereton engages Dr. Stapp in a discussion of how he came to his conclusions and why modern science is still resisting the unavoidable connection between mind and reality.
