How Quantum Physics rediscovered Consciousness Imagine you tossed a coin into the air, and as the coin was in mid-flight, somebody said to you that it would land both heads and tails at the same time. You would doubt their sanity. But if that person were a quantum physicist, you might give them more credibility. And they, for their part, ... (Read more ...) RNA World : Clues to the mystery of the origin of the miracle called ‘life’ In our lifetimes, it may not be possible to arrive at a detailed picture of how life was created on earth from organic molecules. Yet it must be remembered that our knowledge in building this picture has advanced through gigantic leaps in insight and the secrets of cellular machinery ... (Read more ...) Lawrence Krauss on the Foundations of Nothingness as the basis of the Physical Universe Theoretical physicist Lawrence Kross, Professor of Physics at the University of Arizona, described by Richard Dawkins as the ‘Woody Allen of Theoretical Physics’ describes in a remarkable non-mathematical way the current Big Picture of cosmology and its philosophical implications, which often turn religious through its sheer uniqueness.
In this remarkable talk, Lawrence Kross explains why current ... (Read more ...) Why Intelligent design is the least intelligent way to approach the idea of God In recent times the media has projected the debate over intelligent design versus Darwin’s theory of natural selection as a blind force in evolution as some sort of a scientific debate. It has been accused that intelligent design is is an attempt to sneak creationism back through the back door, as for over 200 years ... (Read more ...) A significant step forward in the hunt for the missing anti-matter ? One of the commonest riddles faced by scientists and those who try to understand how the quantum theory helps in understanding how the universe began, is that of matter and anti-matter. In his best selling book, The Tao of Physics, Frijof Capra quotes the Heart Sutra in support of the notion ‘Matter can be created ... (Read more ...)
