We bring out the fact that the essential new quality implied by the quantum theory is nonlocality; i.e., that a system cannot be analyzed into parts whose basic properties do not depend on the state of the whole system. This is done in terms of the causal interpretation of the quantum theory, proposed by one of us (D.B.) in 2952, involving the introduction of the “quantum potential.” We show that this approach implies a new universal type of description, in which the standard or canonical form is always supersystem-system-subsystem; and this leads to the radically new notion of unbroken wholeness of the entire universe. Finally, we discuss some of the implications of extending these notions to the relativity domain, and in so doing, we indicate a novel concept of time, in terms of which relativity and quantum theory may eventually be brought together.

How do trances, visions, prayer, satori, and other mystical manifestations "work"? What are their neurological mechanisms and psychological implications? John Horgan investigates a wide range of fields — chemistry, physics, psychology, radiology, theology, and more — to narrow the gap between reason and enlightenment. As both a seeker and an award-winning journalist, Horgan is uniquely positioned to profile researchers and their work.

SF Books Showing Humanity at its Best? | Science Fiction Fans This topic is currently marked as "dormant"—the last message is more than 90 days old. You can revive it by posting a reply. 1zinschj Edited: Mar 25, 2011, 3:00am I'm looking for recommendations on SF books that are the opposite of post-apocalyptic or distopian stories --stories that show humanity at its best or, at least, a world in which all human existence is elevated beyond basic survival.

40 Modern Nonfiction Books Everyone Should Read
UC Berkeley Summer Reading List Greetings to Berkeley faculty, staff, and students, As we do at the start of each spring term, we're soliciting your suggestions for great books to pass on to incoming Cal freshmen later this year as part of the 2014 UC Berkeley Summer Reading List for Freshmen. To mark the 50th anniversary of the Free Speech Movement on campus, we've chosen Free Speech as this year's theme. Of course, we'd love suggestions of readings that have to do with the events and people here at Berkeley back in 1964, but we also encourage you to think of the theme more broadly: any novels, memoirs, historical texts, and other books that touch on the issue of free speech in various times and places. The primary criteria are that the book resonates for you with the theme of free speech, and that it’s a great read you think an incoming freshman would enjoy.

Asylum Claudia Roth Pierpont: Roth Unbound My aim when writing a review is not so much to say what I thought of a book – though, that too – as to give people enough information to decide if they might want to read it. With Claudia Roth Pierpont’s Roth Unbound: A Writer and His Books, I can guide you easily. If you are a fan of Roth and a serial consumer of his work – as I am – then you should read it and will probably like it.
