Quotes from famous people – taken from Larry Dossey’s The Power of Premonitions

This article was written by Carl Llewellyn Weschcke on November 30, -0001
posted under Mind and Consciousness

“I venture to call it (the mind) indestructible since it has a peculiar time-table, namely mind is always now. There is really no before and after for the mind.”

Erwin Schrodinger, Physicist and Nobel Prize winner

 

“We can admittedly find nothing in physics or chemistry that has even a remote bearing on consciousness. Yet all of us know that there is such a thing as consciousness, simply because we have it ourselves. Hence consciousness must be part of nature, or, more generally, of reality.”

Niels Bohr, Physicist

 

“There is evidence…that the universe as a whole is hospitable to the growth of mind…Therefore it is reasonable to believe in the existence of…a mental component of the universe. If we believe in this mental component of the universe, then we can say that we are small pieces of God’s mental apparatus.”

Freeman Dyson, Physicist

 

“[There is a physical reality that is] in essence the same for all…[This] oneness of the all implies the universality of mind…If my conclusions are correct, each individual is part of God or part of the Universal Mind.”

“The Universal Mind has no need for memory, since all things and processes—past, present, and future—are open to its grasp.”

Henry Margenau, Physicist

George Wald, Biologist

 

“[T]he stuff of the world is mind-stuff.”

Sir Arthur Eddington, Astronomer, Physicist, Mathematician

 

“The individual mind is immanent but not only in the body. It is immanent also in the pathways and messages outside the body; and there is a larger Mind of which the individual mind is only a sub-system. This larger Mind is comparable to God and is perhaps what some people mean by ‘God,’ but it is still immanent in the total interconnected social system and planetary ecology.”

Gregory Bateson, Anthropologist 

 

In Irish tradition, there is a wonderful story of bile, the ancient tree. It grows by the side of a sacred well, and acorns, nuts, and apples spring from its branches. How wonderful it would be to live in the world of folk-tradition: a magical place where the world is joined-up, the sacred is apparent in the everyday world, and every living thing... read this article
