Over a period of twenty years, the quantum physicist David Bohm and spiritual teacher J. Krishnamurti engaged in a series of dialogues to explore how each of their perspectives could deepen each other’s understanding of life. Their dialogues touch on multiple fundamental themes. In this Merry Musing I explore the core themes and how a view from the new physics relates to ancient spiritual teachings. Nish Dubashia, author of The Unity of Everything, joins me in this Musing for a dialogue based on his direct experience of Bohm and Krishnamurti. See here for other dialogues we have had (and here for the transcripts if you prefer to read).
This talk is part of the Merry Musings series hosted by Ubiquity University.
This theme is also the focus of an in-person event in the UK on Science and Consciousness, November 14-18 2021.
