The Realization That Together We Dream the World

Webster’s Third New International Dictionary defines the term “radical” as “marked by a considerable departure from the usual or traditional.”  In our modern world, the “usual or traditional” takes many forms, including “what most people think,” “what you grew up believing,” “what your religious teachers say,” or, on a grander scale, the governing scientific worldview.   It is my premise that the governing scientific worldview underlies and propells all other beliefs.  It is the foundation from which the other fields flow, from politics and economics to medicine and cosmology.  So if we want to truly change the world, we must change it at the root, we must shake the...

Conversations Beyond Science and Religion: The Invisible Bridge Between Science and Mysticism

Science deals with the real world; mysticism, with the spiritual world. Science is based upon testable facts and logical deductions; mysticism, upon wispy thoughts, dreams, and hopes. But is there a deeper connection that we are missing? Notably, science too is filled with mysteries – the origin of matter, the laws of nature, the fine-tuning of the fundamental constants, the origin of life, to name a few. Is mysticism an integral part of the world? This week’s guest, Jude Currivan, of the UK, is a cosmologist, author (HOPE: Healing our People and Earth), and mystic. She joins host Philip Mereton in a wide-open conversation about...
