What Can These Two Topics Possibly Have in Common? .Quantum entanglement .The human search for meaning in the universe Quantum Consciousness: A Philosophy of the Self's Potential Through Quantum Cosmology, explores and correlates these seemingly diverse and unrelated topics, deftly interweaving them into a rich tapestry of philosophical thought. The human ability to tap into the implicate ("hidden") universal order has for centuries been losing potency. The growing conflict between science and spirituality has created an unprecedented rift within humanity, endangering at once scientific advancement and spiritual evolution. The relatively new physics of quantum theory is promising to remedy that, uniting empirical conviction and philosophical thought. More and more researchers are realizing a correlation between speculative science and spiritual philosophy, thereby recognizing the complementarity of the two "opposing" viewpoints. Cosmic order has always been a religious concept. Creation myths are astoundingly similar throughout the world, from primitive tribal legend, to religious dogma, to scientific hypothesis. Quantum Consciousness explores the reasons why this may be so, and elucidates the role of consciousness and intelligence in the universe, shaping a new paradigm of human philosophy and behavior based on some thought-provoking conclusions. The physics is gentle and uncomplicated; the philosophy imaginative, daring, unsettling, and surprisingly relevant.
