Wednesdays from pm to pm Pacific Time. Calculate your local time here. All webinars will be recorded for later viewing. A dedicated meditator for over forty years, he has taught yoga and meditation throughout the US and Europe. He is an avid follower of the unfolding new paradigm of science and is known for creating bridges of understanding between the modern evidenced-based discoveries of science and the ancient experience-based discoveries of the mystics. The Physics of God presents a clear and much needed paradigm that unites, rather than divides, science and religion, drawing on both the findings of science and the transcendent experiences of saints, sages, and those with near-death experiences.
Clear, practical and inspirational, his books and presentations speak to our untapped energetic, mental, and spiritual potentials. Selbie maintains several blogs, including Physics and God and Intersections, which explores how spirituality connects with culture and science. His original career track as a concert violinist shifted into science after earning a BSEE degree in electrical engineering, magna cum laude with honors in physics, from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and then an MS in electrical engineering and a PhD in psychology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
For over two decades he has been engaged in frontiers research on the nature of consciousness. These books have been translated into a dozen foreign languages. In short, quantum physics offers a theory of everything. Her work has been foundational in an international health-care revolution that recognizes the role of meaning, and the spiritual dimensions of life, as an integral part of health and healing. Eloquent and inspiring in settings that range from hospitals to hospices, from theaters to conference venues, and from boardrooms to houses of worship, she is a credible bridge between faith and reason.
Her brilliance, humor, and authenticity—in combination with the latest research—make her a compelling and inspiring speaker and writer.

After graduating magna cum laude from Bryn Mawr College in , Dr. Borysenko earned her doctorate in Medical Sciences from the Harvard Medical School, where she completed post-doctoral training in cancer cell biology. But after the death of her father from cancer, she became more interested in the person with the illness than in the disease itself, and returned to Harvard Medical School to complete a second postdoctoral fellowship, this time in the new field of behavioral medicine. Under the tutelage of Herbert Benson, M. Benson and Dr.
How Quantum Physics Proves God’s Existence
Ilan Kutz, became licensed as a psychologist, and was appointed instructor in medicine at the Harvard Medical School. Her years of clinical experience and research culminated in the publication of the New York Times best seller, Minding the Body, Mending the Mind , which sold over , copies. The 20th anniversary edition, newly revised, was published in Particularly if I disagree with whatever that person might say.
The fact that the laws of physics are time symmetric doesn't imply that reality as to conform to that and in fact it doesn't. It is not at all like the reality as to conform to the laws of physic but the other way around. Apparently we don't fully understand the nature of space time, and that is still a problem for contemporary physics.
I didn't say you had to be circumspect; I suggested you might want to. That was a subtle way of saying in English that what you said was blatantly in error which made you appear foolish. Apparently, it was too subtle and lost in translation.. You are absolutely correct, however, regarding the laws of physics.

The laws of physics are not proscriptive but descriptive. Therefore, they are developed via our efforts to describe reality, not in order to police it. However, although we don't understand everything about the nature of space-time, we do understand a great deal.
Many of the theories match reality to a very, very high degree, and there is no problem with these. One of these areas is, within quantum physics, the nature of subatomic particle collisions. It is actually true that subatomic particle collisions are completely reversible. Both directions are valid. I think I understood you, my remark is not meaningful, but the fact that Alan Guth as Krauss or Carroll for that matter makes a statement doesn't imply that I have to agree with him even if it concerns with particle colision, in spite of a movie going backward might be an interesting alegory if we were dealing with elastic colisions where only occur momentum transfers in the colisions , but unfortunately inelastic colisions are much more common in this case the allegory is completely inadequate.
God & Modern Physics
The problem of time arrow is not a minor thing is something that is missing in our current basic account of space time understanding. Which didn't avoid that in fact the theories had success in explaining a variety of things I am not disputing that. Not really adequate in any sense, as it just describes a conceptualised situation, not reality.
It doesn't describe a conceptualized situation. It does describe reality. The information about these interactions has been known for more than 70 years.
Did you hear the one about the quantum physicist who finds God?
It is the most elementary of facts about particle physics. Your continuing denial of this fundamental fact is equivalent to saying you don't believe that two objects of different weights bur the same shape will fall at the same rate. Look up Feynman diagrams. Experimental evidence long ago and ever since has supported this model of interaction to an extremely high degree of accuracy. I know that quantum mechanics is weird.
Even Feynman said that if anyone says they understand quantum mechanics, they don't understand quantum mechanics. It doesn't matter how unreasonable and absurd you find the facts to be, Vasco -- and even most people I the field will agree with you that quantum mechanics seems unreasonable and absurd. And yet, that is how quantum mechanics -- absurd, unreasonable, and true nonetheless. Weird yet demonstrably true for decades. And it is funny that subatomic particles are immune to the 'rules' of time that apply to the universe at larger scales, and yet it is true and very meaningful to most of modern technology including cell phones and GPS.
What does QM has to do with anything that was previously discussed it might even lead to further unecessary complicatins. I am not denying anything or any fundamental fact or valid assumption that has been shown toi be correct by physics or QM, and your suggestion that it is the case is absurd.

What QM has to do with it is that Guth was talking about collisions between subatomic particles, and their behavior is described by QM. This entire subthread started with you disagreeing with what Guth said about these collisions. And yes, subatomic particle movements and interactions actually are immune to time. Another weird feature of QM. The fact that collisions between particles are described by QM, doesn't change anything QM is irrelevant to this point. It is still collisions between particles which doesn't occur out of time. Whatever is described by QM only has existence as occurring in time, in spite of the problems with quantum uncertainty; we are talking about particles that actually interact in time and space, that have mass and momentum.
The fact that one may describe something such as a collision, or a train crash, or whatever not considering time, is not really meaningful, we can accept that as a description in fact we may represent just the transfer of momentum that occurs during the collision , where we choose to ignore time, it is not because time is irrelevant. There are many weird things on QM that concern the descriptions we may obtain that are probabilistic, which leads to a large amount of peculiarities, not detected in macroscopic systems where our descriptions are no longer probabilistic.
Vasco, This conversation has become tedious. Just look it up.
Subatomic particle collisions happen in a universe where time is happening, but they are really unaffected by it. Look it up. Spitzer has provided an evidenced argument for an absolute beginning of time and it seems that you are simply offering an argument from authority: Smolin says so. If I had said, "Fr. Spitzer is wrong because Lee Smolin says so," that would have been an argument from authority.
However, pointing out that Smolin believes the big bang was not the beginning of time, presenting part of what he says, and linking to the rest is providing information, not arguing from authority. Plus I thought anyone interested in cutting-edge science, no matter where they stood in this debate, would be interested in the Edge. Just because Spitzer can mention a proposed physical theory that supports his point does not mean that said theory BGV is a generally-accepted theory. The BGV theory is respected, but it is not generally accepted as 'how things must have been.
But most cosmologists don't believe classical gravity is sufficient, mainly because it is not adequate to reconcile general relativity and quantum mechanics.
This is why cosmologists are working so hard to develop a theory of quantum gravity, that is, a theory that does reconcile them. Vilenkin himself says that, if classical gravity is not sufficient to explain the conditions at the Big Bang, then "we don't even know what the questions are" to ask about beginnings. TL;DR: Spitzer's use of an idea from a respected phycicist is no different from David Nikol's refutation from another respected phycicist.
