compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
Science advances by dialogue, inquiry and exchange of ideas. Today
dialogue is even more important than in the past, the community problems
and issues that science is facing need the best of minds, and hearts, to
come together. Science and philosophy, science and metaphysics, are
complementary activities. Fields like global climate, neuroscience and
consciousness and even quantum field theory, advance through
intersection of ideas and methodologies, not by censorship.
I am a quantum physicist, cosmologist and Earth scientist, so I know these
issues. We are now facing a grand revolution in scientific thought,
through the dialogue between quantum theory, consciousness work,
biology, and philosophy and psychology. TED has a great opportunity to
help advance this transformation. I hope you do.
