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.

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 


While most people are probably familiar with legendary creatures such as Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, the Chupacabra, and Jersey Devil, there is a myriad of weird beasts that are less known, but equally as elusive. What is surprising is that there are accounts of modern encounters with these enigmatic monsters on record, indicating that there... read this article
