from shekhar to Piet : 28th July 2001 ” This very moment is ALL that is real” – yes I agree, – But for you, is that scientific theorey that is current – or is it from your buddhist exploration ?
Oh no, that is from my own exploration, partly Buddhist, partly Taoist, partly other influences. It is my great hope that I will find a way to inject some of those ideas into mainstream science in such a way that my colleagues cannot get around it. At the very least I want to make sure to make it easier for the next generation of scientists to open the door to such ideas, and if I’m really lucky I’ll be able to open a door myself. To me these ideas are very much a logical follow-up of ideas in relativity and quantum mechanics, already progressively `weird’ from a linear classical perspective, but most of my colleagues seem only to accept the weirdness of the past, while somehow extrapolating only the known (non-weird) into the future . . . .
Note from shekhar : Piet was right, scientific theorey ahs indeed moved on since Piet wrote this in July 2001.
