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

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

“[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 western ceremonial magick, there is often a tendency to view a magickal operation as something that is at odds with the natural order of the universe. This is very much the core of the western mindset, where nature is something external to oneself to be "conquered." Human individuality and the Will of the magician are thought to be somehow... read this article
