Science, Consciousness, and the Soul

Join the search for a theory of consciousness that embraces both the mystical and the latest discoveries in neuroscience, parapsychology, and quantum physics.

Who are we? Random creations of the unpredictable workings of quantum physics? Or are we a miraculous creation of God filled with meaning and purpose? Is there some mysterious, living intelligence that pervades the entire universe? Or is consciousness just the illusory byproduct of synaptic activity in our brain? Come and explore the hotly contested ground between mysticism and materialism, as we seek out a theory of consciousness that embraces both science and the soul.

  • Answer questions about consciousness, like:

    How does the mind manifest reality?

    How can we individually and collectively create the future?

    Can the brain be the source of morality, God, and the soul?

  • Take a mind-bending ride into the field of paranormal psychology and through some wild theories of consciousness. Hear interviews with Marilyn Schlitz, Dean Radin, Sue Blackmore, Rupert Sheldrake, and more...
  • Uncover the largely untapped potential within our brains, and ways in which we might unleash this sleeping giant in order to realize the next step in human evolution
  • Go behind the scenes with the movie What the Bleep do we Know!? and listen to what Masaru Emoto and Fred Alan Wolf have to say about the relationship between quantum physics and the nature of consciousness.
