Quantum Biology and Well-Being: A Science and Spirituality Wellness Series

Thomas Padikal, Ph.D.

February 11, Saturday, 9:00 AM, Century A, Los Angeles Airport Hilton (LAX HILTON)


Seventy years ago Schrodinger attempted to unravel the mystery of life in his book What is Life.

“We still hear quantum effects have little to no relevance in biology!” lamented Roger Penrose in 1991.

Want to claim your holographic quantum lineage? Now perched on a precipice with 13.72 billion years of evolutionary intelligence built-in, it took all that cosmological evolution imprinted holographically to think such thoughts and ask such questions!  Come prepared to playfully participate – and re-discover your holographic quantum lineage! Disney world is fun, yes it is, but wait till you discover this!


Entropy and The Arrow of Time

Posted on January 6, 2010 at 7:24 PM Comments comments (0)

This is a hot topic in the United States. The biggest population segment in history - the boomers - are now becoming seniors. I count myself in this category. We ache for answers to some very fundamental questions. To demonstrate the breadth and depth of the inquiry, I quote a brilliant physicist:


"Men and women are not content to comfort themselves with tales of gods and giants... The effort to understand the universe is one of the very few things that lifts human life a little above the level of farce, and gives it some of the grace of tragedy"
Steven Weinberg, University of Texas at Austin, Nobel Laureate, in The First Three Minutes


Profound, but not very settling is it? It is in this context we welcome you to our workshop The Arrow of Time. According to the second law of thermodynamics, the entropy of a closed system increases with time. Herein lies a relationship between time and entropy! So we take on a fundamental inquiry: Is it possible to impact the flow of time?

Electrons: Master Architect

Electrons: Architectural Genius

Extraordinary architects, the electrons give form, structure and texture - to us and objects around us. Chemistry is driven by electrons. Our sensory systems are electron mediated. Our bio-feedback mechanisms are electron mediated. Biological function and optimization is electron mediated. It seems electrons are "everywhere". Brimming with vitality, they "dance us into existence". Instead of treating an electron as an "it", is it possible to identify with them? Is it enough to just "know", and become a "scholar"? What would it be like to create a space to stand in, and Dance in a Trance with the electrons? Would it sharpen our capacity to interface with this "Architectural Genius"? Would it open pathways we now "know" nothing about? 


Taking Science and Spirituality for a test drive

Being with (the electron) is considerably different from poking it, and seeing how it responds. Humanity is both. In the workshop we will create opportunities to sharpen our sensory acuity to experience their rhythmic dance. The confluence of Science and Spirituality is a place of birth. One might even say a magical place, because some outcomes fall outside expectations. Or outside extrapolations of expectations. Or outside "rigorous science". Participants have repeatedly demonstrated their capacity to be in the confluence - they lovingly remind us that Being (in the confluence) is significantly different from Knowing (about it)! Sometimes with surprising results. Manipulating the electrons is a world apart from witnessing them freely UNFOLD and INTERACT with you in an act of CO-CREATION!

We are living in an Expanding Universe

This graph shows the Expansion of the Universe with Time  


Your age is shown on the x-axis, while the Expnasion of the Universe is shown on the y-axis (expressed as Millionth of a percent)  For example if you are fifty now, the universe expanded by 0.33 millionth of a percent since your birth.

What do you suppose are the implications of this discovery?
