Why is it called Mind and Matter?
When I started this blog, I was reading Faith, Physics, and Psychology: Rethinking Society and the Human Spirit by John Fitzgerald Medina (2006). In chapter one, Medina describes why the Cartesian-Newtonian world view is being challenged in favor of a more holistic worldview. There was a shift from early European scientists (Descartes, Newton, Galileo, etc.) to the theories of 20th century scientists, such as Einstein. In chapter two, Medina refers to the quantum physicist, David Boehm, who explains that the universe is more like a holographic image with a non-material deeper reality. But this reality is blurred with our physical reality. According to Boehm and others, mind and matter are really intertwined. This blog, therefore, is a place where you can read about what’s on my mind and what’s going on in the world of matter for me in my personal life.
