“Reality is not the way the way we thought it was, the way the classical world emerges. We’ve got this extra, mysterious quality of energy.
Professor Basil Hiley, one of the foremost theoretical physicists of our time, enters in conversation with Scott Snibbe on the philosophical implications of quantum mechanics and his collaboration with David Bohm. In today’s episode of Science & Wisdom LIVE, they will discuss:
– The paradox of quantum mechanics and wave/particle duality
– Multiple interpretations of quantum mechanics: the standard interpretation, the multiverse and the quantum potential
– Bohm’s interpretation and the subtle action of the quantum potential
– Testing Bohm’s hypothesis experimentally
– Quantum processes are not mechanical but organic
– Implicate and explicate order and the nature of minds
– The creation of new concepts and process-oriented language
– Why ‘there is no particle, there is just process’.
– The role of observers and measurements in quantum mechanics
– How the quantum potential can bridge individual and collective
– Why we “can’t control nature, and if you think you can you’re going to cause disasters”
– Avoiding fragmentation: a wholistic approach to problem-solving
– Group dynamics and super systems
