Rick Delano, with Robert Sungenis, also produced the movie “The Principle” which was about the problems with the Copernican Principle. He was my Facebook friend at one time. He blocked me when I asked him to stop saying that the Roman Catholic Church was right to have burned John Huss at the stake. He has a new movie about the crisis in modern physics.
Almost one hundred years ago, the project to reduce the world to mathematical physics failed suddenly and completely: “One of the best-kept secrets of science,” physicist Nick Herbert writes, “is that physicists have lost their grip on reality.” The world, we are now told, emerges spontaneously, out of “nothing,” and constitutes a “multiverse,” where “anything that can happen will happen, and it will happen an infinite number of times.”
Legendary reclusive genius Wolfgang Smith demonstrates on shockingly obvious grounds the dead end at which physics has arrived, and how we can “return, at last, to the real world.”
The End of Quantum Reality introduces this extraordinary man to a contemporary audience which has, perhaps, never encountered a true philos-sophia, one as intimately at ease with the rigors of quantum physics as with the greatest schools of human wisdom.
“Wolfgang Smith broaches a vast range of subjects with a mastery that bespeaks an immense culture… It would be hard to exaggerate the importance of [his] work.”
— Jean Borella, Professor of Philosophy, University of Nancy, France
“Here is that rare person who is equally at home with Eckhart and Einstein, Heraclitus and Heisenberg!”
— Harry Oldmeadow, Professor of Philosophy, La Trobe University, Australia
“Wolfgang Smith is as important a thinker as our times boast.”
— Huston Smith, Professor of Philosophy, M.I.T., and author of The World’s Religions
//… Inner Explorations: Tell us what motivated you to write on philosophical subjects.
Wolfgang Smith: More than anything else, it was the recognition that science is a doubled-edged sword. On the one hand there is scientific truth, a bona fide knowledge of a special kind; but that knowledge is accompanied in practice by a syndrome of philosophic assumptions which are generally mistaken for scientific truths. It became clear to me, moreover, in light of the metaphysical traditions, that these scientistic beliefs (as I call them) tend to be spurious, and deleterious to our spiritual well-being. I became convinced, in fact, that the spiritual and moral decline of modern civilization–our estrangement from spiritual reality–is due in no small measure to the scientistic world-view which has been foisted upon us in the name of science. I therefore made it my business to detect and expose the principal scientistic dogmas affecting contemporary civilization.
IE: Can you give an example of a prominent scientistic belief?
WS: As a major example I would mention the Darwinian theory of evolution, which (contrary to official belief) is not in fact a scientific hypothesis corroborated by empirical facts, but a philosophic tenet masquerading in scientific garb. As one molecular biologist has put it, Darwinism is ultimately “no more and no less than the great cosmogenetic myth of the twentieth century.” The genre of scientistic myth, however, is not limited to the sphere of biology; it is to be found even in the physical domain. When it comes to psychology and the social sciences, moreover, it appears that myth actually predominates. I have explained and documented these contentions in my first book….//
