Cosmology and Quantum Theory

by Chapman University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

Why are we here? What is the meaning of existence? What is the future evolution for humanity?
How do humans fit into the universe? Is religious experience contrary to rational thought? These
existential questions have been explored for millennia throughout various spiritual traditions.
Only recently have these same matters found ground in modern science, specifically quantum
theory, cognitive psychology and contemplative neuroscience. This course, co-taught by two
renowned scholars of science and religion, integrates the disciplines of quantum physics,
cosmology, Eastern philosophy, and consciousness studies. Students will be exposed to the latest
theories developing in the emerging academic field of “holistic science” that investigates the role
that human consciousness plays in our understanding of our cosmos, our brain and our human
condition. This unique course explores humanity’s emerging paradigm of wholeness and
interconnectedness through both a scientific and spiritual lens. Topics such as quantum
superposition, non-locality and multiple dimensions will be juxtaposed with readings from the
Eastern religions of Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism. Additionally, students will acquire
experiential meditation and centering techniques to assist in a deeper exploration into the nature
of human consciousness and our connection to the cosmos.
This course is co-taught by Quantum Physicist and Prof. Menas Kafatos, Director of the Center of Excellence in Earth Systems, and Adjunct Professor of Religious Studies Jay Kumar.
