Quantum Physics and Spirituality


The Reality of ESP — the American Remote Viewing Programme

Image by Stefan Keller from Pixabay

This article is on a somewhat different theme from recent ones. The reason is that I’ve been asked to put together a piece on remote viewing by a website for which I write. It therefore makes sense to also publish it on Medium. All the information here can be found in Dean Radin’s book The Conscious Universe: the Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena¹, which is also where the passages in quotation marks are taken from.

Remote viewing studies apparently began in the 19th century, when in 1882 Frederic Myers and…


Carl Jung and the Collective Unconscious — Archetypes as Divine Ideas

Image by Okan Caliskan from Pixabay

This article is part of a series, the purpose of which is to explore Carl Jung’s understanding of the concept of archetypes. For the full context, please see this introduction. In a nutshell, I’ve set myself the challenge of defending my interpretation of Jung’s understanding of archetypes and the collective unconscious, which is very different from that of three other writers on Medium. Following the introduction I wrote a further article, but on reflection wished that I had not jumped straight in, and made my starting position clearer. …

Some Random Thoughts on Metaphysics, Consciousness and Carl Jung

When I originally had the idea for this article, I thought it was going to be a light-hearted take on the heated debates about the nature of consciousness between materialists, dualists, panpsychists, and idealists. (I hope I haven’t left anyone out.) Some correspondence I’ve had on Medium since then has persuaded me to turn it into something a bit more serious.

Most of my articles have a spiritual theme of some kind. Over the past couple of months I’ve been focussing on the relationship between quantum physics and spirituality, and Carl…


The Quantum Physics Revolution, and the Reunification of Science and Religion, part 2

I recently gave an online talk for the European School of Theosophy. For time considerations I had to omit some possible sections, which follow here. What follows makes most sense, therefore, it if you’ve either watched the talk online, or have read part 1, which is a transcription of it.

====================================

(This would have occurred near the end, following the second section which listed the relevant literature.)

It’s also worth noting briefly that materialist scientists tend to dismiss parapsychology, specifically telepathy, as impossible because it allegedly violates…


The Quantum Physics Revolution, and the Reunification of Science and Religion — Part 1


Carl Jung, Archetypes, and the Collective Unconscious — Part 1

Image by walterbruneel888 from Pixabay

I’m hoping that this won’t end up just as a discussion between me and three other Medium writers, and that others will be able to make helpful contributions. What follows will make most sense if you’ve read this brief introduction to the series; however, what follows will tune you in, if you want to go straight ahead. In a nutshell I’ve set myself the challenge of defending my interpretation of Jung’s understanding of archetypes and the collective unconscious, which is very different from that of these other three.

Before I…


Carl Jung, Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious — Follow-Up

Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay

This is an introduction and necessary preamble to a brief series of articles. I’m doing this so that readers don’t have to go back and read all the related preceding material in its entirety (although the links are included, should anyone wish to). So here I’m just setting the scene.

A few weeks ago I wrote an article in response to one by James Cussen about Carl Jung and the collective unconscious. My principal complaint was that he had written the whole article on this theme without once mentioning the word…
