Shamanic Physics (#W405)
Shamans see the world as made up of vibrations, using resonance between individuals to effect healings. In Part One of this two-part series, Fred Alan Wolf discusses his efforts to explain shamanic realities in terms of modern physics. He suggests that shamans interact with parallel universes and are able to enter into the world of the dead.
In Part Two, Wolf describes in greater length his interactions with shamans among the North American Sioux Indians, in the jungles of Peru and in England. He confesses that he observed many things among the shamans that were unexplainable to him in terms of modern physics, noting that the shamans he worked with were loving healers who touched him in a deep and nurturing manner.
Fred Alan Wolf is a physicist and author of Space Time and Beyond, Taking the Quantum Leap, The Body Quantum, Star*Wave, Parallel Universes and The Eagle's Quest.
The Dreaming Universe (#H370)
Physicist Fred Wolf speculates on the nature of human consciousness, its relationship to the brain and to the world of dreaming. In this highly entertaining program, he presents evidence suggesting that the world of dreams is ontologically real, discussing the "dreamtime" of the Australian aborigines, evidence for dream telepathy and the different levels of lucid dreaming.
Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., received the American Book Award in science for Taking the Quantum Leap. He is also author of The Dreaming Universe.
The Spiritual Universe (#H200
Fred Wolf presents an enlightening survey of the human notion of the Soul from ancient wisdom to modern physics, including the view that there is but on Soul in the universe--the universal consciousness of which we all partake.
Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., is also author of The Spiritual Universe.
Physics and Consciousness (#S450)
Witty and profound, physicist Dr. Wolf's far-ranging thinking extends our understanding of quantum physics as it applies to the human body and mind, suggesting that we are inextricably connected with all that exists in the physical universe.
|"Before quantum physics, people knew that human beings were conscious. We knew that animals were conscious. Some of the ancient traditions, particularly some of the Hindu traditions, or the Vedic traditions of ancient Indian religion, speak in terms of everything being conscious. Rocks are conscious; your thumbnail is conscious; the television cameras that are recording this show are conscious. So they speak about consciousness pervading everything. But with the twentieth century and with quantum physics, we began to see what might be called a new role for consciousness."|
