    Science has largely ignored the subject of consciousness, and for seemingly sound reasons. First, consciousness cannot be weighed, measured, or observed in the way that material objects can.

    Second, scientists have sought to arrive at universal objective truths, truths that are not dependent upon an observer’s viewpoint or state of mind; they have deliberately avoided subjective considerations.

  • The only eternal truth

    Perhaps the only eternal truth of science is that all theories change with time.

  • The Quickening Pace

    Peter Russell, England

    The pace of life is speeding up. Hardly the most startling statement. As most of us are only too aware, change comes more and more rapidly. Technological breakthroughs spread through society in years rather than centuries. Calculations that would have taken decades are now made in minutes. Communication that once required months occurs in seconds. Development in every area is happening faster and faster.
