The Contrast

Just recently I have been reading a couple of books – A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bryan Bryson and The Theory of Everything by Stephen Hawkings. Book books are interesting and well written but it is the absence (even denial) that anything more than complete chance is responsible for Everything that struck me in both books. Hawkings even mocks the idea that one would need anything to explain anything except chance.

I was reading both books as I just wanted to get to grips with Quantum Physics for myself to separate out truth from fiction.

What I was left with however was a feeling that these two gentlemen ought to read some esoteric literature. They may discover that much of what they prattle on about has been known for many centuries already thanks to what might be termed ‘occult’ philosophy. In the end, it would seem that the outright materialistic scientist forgets one small detail in their theories of everything – consciousness……

One thought on “The Contrast

  1. Gary,

    Long time! I’ve also been noticing how the research into quantum physics really starts shedding light on a lot of what has heretofore been considered metaphysics and pseudo-science. I agree that these guys should start reading more esoteric literature…
