Summary:
Acclaimed physicist and author Peter Russell explores the mystery of human consciousness; how we create our identity; how to attain inner harmony; and the importance of living in the NOW. With high-concept animation and beautiful visuals. "Watch it and feel the mystery come alive." Christian de Quincey, Philosopher. "Provocative and intriguing." - Booklist. How is it that something as unconscious as the matter of the brain ever gives rise to something as immaterial as an experience? muses Peter Russell in From Science to God, a stimulating program exploring science, spirit, and the mystery of consciousness. Russell, a prominent thinker in the fields of consciousness and science, asserts that science cannot explain the fact that humans are conscious. This capacity for inner experience he calls, the great mystery. According to Russell, who studied mathematics and theoretical physics before he delved into experimental psychology, science is locked into the view that consciousness itself is somehow created by the human brain. He believes that we need to question this basic assumption and consider instead that awareness is present to some degree in all living things. The difference with humans is that we are aware that we aware. But what is it that is aware? In bustling downtown Los Angeles, Peter explores the perennial question of (Who am I?) He looks at how we seek fame and fashion, power and position, in our search for inner fulfillment. But in the final analysis, peace of mind is to be found within our selves rather than in what we have or do. In the closing, he observes that Western science has proved very successful in explaining the world and advancing technology, but has not provided us with meaning or values. He calls for integration of scientific understanding with the wisdom of spiritual traditions. The next great frontier is not outer space, Russell concludes, it is inner space. Peter Russell earned degrees in theoretical physics, psychology, and computer science at the University of Cambridge, England, later turning to psychology as he became fascinated by the subject of consciousness and the untapped potential of the human brain. He was one of the first people to introduce self-development seminars to business, and for twenty years consulted to major corporations on creativity, learning methods, stress management and sustainability. He now lectures around the world on consciousness and the future evolution of humanity.
