Conversations Beyond Science And Religion – Sir James Jean & Max Planck
The world needs a vision and for a vision we will need a Mind. As the physicist, Sir James Jeans, said almost a century ago, “today there is a wide measure of agreement, which on the physical side of science approaches almost to unanimity, that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than a great machine.”
And then, as Max Planck, the founder of quantum theory, said, “mind is the matrix of all reality.” Quantum theory shows the physical world is made not of things, but of mind-stuff. So the problem is that we are at essence a Mind, and the goal becomes to understand and accept this fact and then with this knowledge, dream bigger.
