From Quantum Physics to Cosmology

We are all an inherent part of a Universe that is a continuum stretching from the tiniest quantum particles to the vast expanses of infinite deep space. We are only beginning to understand not only the science, but the profound philosophical and metaphysical implications of the science. As we are drawn inevitably towards the unification of Quantum Mechanics & General Relativity, the gap between the intellectual and the mystic is likewise closing. My book Quanta to Cosmos explores the hard science along with the practical and metaphysical inferences.

The Objective Mind  -  Part I

Using practical analogies and examples, the first part of Quanta to Cosmos infuses the hard science with context. By giving context, life is breathed into the science and this opens the door to the natural sense of wonder and awe that is missing in most scientific writing. Topics covered include: The Big Bang, String Theory, Quantum Gravity, Entanglement, Dark Matter, Dark Energy, Black Holes, We are Stardust, and many more. This isn't light reading, but you needn't be an astrophysicist to understand - there are few equations in the book.

The Subjective Mind  -  Part II

The intellect is secondary to the true core of consciousness. This means that we must willfully push our intellect/ego into the background before epiphany can be achieved. In the second part of Quanta to Cosmos I explore the multifaceted implications that Quantum Entanglement has for our daily lives - both physical and metaphysical. Another theme is the false sense of Duality that we perceive in our daily lives. The fact that our bodies and our world are made entirely of stardust surely proves that Descartes was wrong!

The Quantum Observer  -  Part III

The final section of Quanta to Cosmos is about the 'observer' in quantum experiments and its role in our daily lives. On the scale of the very small, it is proven that simply observing an experiment affects the outcome; the most famous example is the double-slit experiment. It has also been shown that conscious will can affect physical reality - the quantum observer may very well be the mechanism by which this occurs. The eternal consciousness that is the observer that collapsed the probability wave function that made the Big Bang into a physical reality, is as close as science will ever be to defining God.
