Quantum Mind: The Edge Between Physics and Psychology by Arnold Mindellwho are we, where did we come from? why are we here? what happens after death? what is the basis of physics and how does it connect to the psychology of dreams and with spiritual traditions? how is my personal fate connected to the fate of our planet, our solar system?
dream-like states of consciousness are the basic substance of the universe. matter is created from dreaming. these states are basic to moving in and out of the physical form, they are basic not only to shamanism and psychology, but also explain mathematics and physics.
chemistry, biology, medicine, psychology, and other sciences cluster around physics as the most central, influential science. yet the basis and explanation of the laws of physics are still unknown.
it turns out that physics and mathematics are based on what psychology and shamanism always knew; everyones capacity to become aware of subtle, dreamlike events. quantum mind is about our awareness process and its mysterious power to participate in creating reality... the subtle manner in which nature interacts with herself in the background of our perception, creating the observable world.
i call the realm of psychology, shamanism, and physics -- where things exist before they are seen -- the sentient realm.. the world of dreaming. enlightenment is connected with knowing this realm. this realm is the basis for unifying physics and mythology.
math is a manifestation of our psychology.. the math of our quantum mechanics is a treasure-house of codes. the math of quantum physics taught details about consciousness. math and physics contain hidden codes of consciousness.
the problem explaining physics is due to problems originating in the sixteenth century, when spirit, mind, and matter were separated from one another.
shamanisms teachings about how to move through altered states of consciousness are crucial to the foundations of psychology. they were encoded in quantum theory and relativity.
Psychology as a Science
By Saul McLeod , published Science uses an empirical approach. This was in contrast to the existing view that knowledge could be gained solely through the powers of reason and logical argument known as rationalism. Thus, empiricism is the view that all knowledge is based on, or may come from experience. The empirical approach through gaining knowledge through experience quickly became the scientific approach and greatly influenced the development of physics and chemistry in the 17th and 18th centuries.
In the article, Kimble argued that, like biology and physics, psychology holds fundamental principles that cut across its various specialties. Kimble was strongly committed to a fully unified, general psychology. Nearly a decade before this Psychological Science essay was published, he served as president of Division 1 of the American Psychological Association, the sole division explicitly devoted to General Psychology. These two companion articles helped Kimble form the basis for a later book-length treatment, Psychology: The Hope of a Science The irony is that during the very period in which Kimble intensified his integration endeavors, psychology began to disintegrate as a discipline as tensions between the scientists and the practitioners escalated. Moreover, he had only shortly before published survey results documenting the wide chasm separating the scientists and the practitioners experimental psychologists and psychotherapists, more specifically.
