Where does consciousness come from? It’s one of the oldest problems in human thinking – and new tools were brought to bear on it with the advent of the quantum mechanics revolution a century ago. Dr. Harald Atmanspacher began his career as a physicist but is now more of a synthesized across various realms trying to formulate solutions to problems like consciousness, the mind-matter connection & how quantum phenomena might relate to how we experience the world. It’s wild and wooly thinking, shared by an expert in his field who knows how to teach. Please enjoy this penultimate episode of our second season.
