With Brian "B" Mistler, Healthcare Executive
Our daily experience suggests a basic duality -- two separate things, the mental and physical -- leaving the “hard problem” of how consciousness interacts with the universe. To prepare to dialog and ask questions, non-technical reading will be provided on David Bohm’s physical/neuropsychological theory of "implicate" order, addressing the nature of reality in general and consciousness in particular. We will also discuss how such mathematical descriptions of coherent, ever-moving wholeness relate to Hindu philosophies of Advaita Vedānta (Non-Dualism or Dual-Aspect Monism).
Thurs., May 6, May 27, & June 3 • 2-4 p.m. [Note: This meeting schedule has changed since catalog publication.]
