Science and Nonduality
Dualisms shape our worldview. They include Mind/Matter, Self/ Other, Perception/Reality, Quantum/Classical, Wave/Particle, Spiritual/Material, Beginning/End, Male/Female, Living/Dead, and Good/Evil.
Wisdom gained through meditation, yoga, and mystical experiences suggest these dichotomies are illusory. Eastern mystics know a single underlying reality called advaita, Brahman, the Tao, or nirvana, from which all existence arises through consciousness. Nonduality is the philosophical and spiritual understanding that dualisms obscure a deeper reality of non-separation and fundamental oneness.
On the other hand, science depends on empirical data leading to reductionism, materialism, and apparent dichotomies. But discoveries in quantum physics, brain sciences, consciousness studies, biology, cosmology, psychology, and other fields have revealed nonduality in science as well, suggesting mysticism and science share a common source.
Applying nondual perspectives in science and scientific perspectives in Eastern spiritual approaches are the twin goals of the first public conference on the Science of Nonduality. Join us for three days seeking fundamental oneness in quantum physics, philosophy, consciousness studies, cosmology, art, Buddhism, psychology, and spiritual metaphysics. More>>
