Some physicists think that Big Science has kidnapped physics and left the mind and consciousness behind.
What is the mind? And how can physicists, of all people, be the ones to explain consciousness and the mind?
NEW PHYSICS AND THE MIND discusses what motivates some physicists to bring the mind into physics, then presents—as a Hidden Physics Countdown—the most successful theories of new physics and the mind.
About the Author
Robert Paster earned his bachelor's degree in mathematics from M.I.T. and his master's degree in education from Harvard. He has taught mathematics at an alternative high school, worked as a systems analyst, and worked as an actuary at one of the nation's largest insurance companies. During this time he continued to keep up with developments in physics, including physicists' speculative research into developing a Theory of Everything, into new physics phenomena that challenge the standard models of particle physics and cosmology, and into the role in physics of consciousness and the mind. Mr. Paster recently took early retirement as vice president of expense & subsidiary management and resumed his study of physics full-time.
NEW PHYSICS AND THE MIND is the synthesis of Mr. Paster's two-year effort researching the historical development and scientists' latest thinking regarding the mind, the brain, cognition and perception, atoms and matter, quantum theory, gravitation, and particle physics.
