Buddhism and Quantum Physics

I spent six years in graduate school in physics and learned a lot about Buddhism and quantum physics.

This video caught my attention and so I want to share it.

It demonstrates the convergence of the Buddhist ideas of interdependence, emptiness and the true nature of reality with those of quantum physics and modern physics.

I will have more to say about Buddhism and quantum physics in upcoming posts, including my interview with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

At the University of Chicago, I made a presentation to graduate students in psychology of Dr. Eugene Gendlin, creator of Focusing, called The Strange Reality of the Quanta.

In recent years, I have rekindled my interest in physics, especially as the study of cosmology and quantum theory relate to Buddhist thought.

In the meantime, please watch the video. Take notes and ask questions in the comment box below.
