I started this blog quoting D. Bohm and now I will attempt to extend his “reach’ by linking to work by Josephson and Pallikari-Viras:
and F. David Peat:
Dr Josephson won 1/2 of the 1973 Nobel in Physics for: “his theoretical predictions of the properties of a supercurrent through a tunnel barrier, in particular those phenomena which are generally known as the Josephson effects”, which led to the invention of the Josephson junction. These junctions are key components in devices used to make highly sensitive measurements in magnetic fields. Further use for his discoveries was realised by researchers at the International Business Machines Corporation who, by 1980, had assembled an experimental computer switch structure, which would permit switching speeds from 10 to 100 times faster than those possible with conventional silicon-based chips, increasing data processing capabilities by a vast amount. However, controversially he has stated that his “work on the brain is more significant than my[his] Nobel-prize winning research.”
Dr. Josepshon has been a distinguished guest of the Language of Spirit Dialogue, where he continously failed to produce power point presentations. (tunelling??).
Dr. Peat wrote “Blackfoot Physics”-and many other inspired work- another tour de force (as Bassos’ work), which made a serious impact when considering another systems of knowledge-other than science. Reading both papers may provide a robust landscape why Dr. Bohms’ idea are important when we think about our place in the Universe, space and the human mind. Dr Peat will be our guest in this years’ Dialogue, August the 8th.
