A Meeting of Spirituality and Theoretical Physics
When I heard that Neil Turok from Canada’s Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics would be delivering one of the CBC Massey Lectures in Calgary, I thought, ‘what an opportunity’. I realized that I would be extremely challenged and headed up to the U of C anyway. His lecture, no, his talk, was free-flowing and exciting and at times, personal.
He spoke of how our understanding of the world is affected by the knowledge revealed with each new technology. Sometimes we find ourselves in a significant paradigm shift which leads to different ways of relating, organizing and being. I don’t know how much I didn’t understand so maybe I should check out his book, The Universe Within: From Quantum to Cosmos.
One day I found Field of Compassion: How the New Cosmology is Transforming Spiritual Life by Judy Cannato at Southwood Library. I will confess that I haven’t read it from cover to cover but I feel a strong relationship between these two books.
As we come to know that all life is connected, that we are all part of one, our relationship to one another and all that is, is transformed, leading us to find a healthy, harmonious way to be in the world.
