Your Sense of Free Will Defies Conventional Science

In a provocative article concerning free will (The Atlantic, June 2016), British philosopher Stephen Cave alarms readers with a discussion of the apparent damage that a belief in determinism—the idea that events are predetermined and completely defy any human notion of free will—would cause in our social systems. Fortunately, his commentary is based on erroneous […]

Compelling Studies on Drugs and Consciousness

One of the most fundamental, and damaging, falsehoods in modern science is that all that exists is the physical world, and the closely related concept that the physical brain creates consciousness.

Attuning to your Inner Wisdom

  Have you ever asked these questions: Who am I? What is my role in the Universe? Until now, science has left those questions to religion.
