Arthur M. Young: Astrology and Science (excerpt) — A Thinking Allowed DVD w/ Jeffrey Mishlove

NOTE: This is an excerpt from the full 90-minute DVD.

The planets in astrology represent important distinctions concerning the different realms of reality that often become confused in science. In part one of this two-part program, Arthur M. Young states that insights about angular relationships were very important in the development of the helicoptor and led him to develop a model in which the measure formulae of physics are expressed in a manner isomorphic to the signs of the zodiac.

In part two of the DVD, Young elaborates on the difference between the planets Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, explaining how the planetary cycles of Saturn have had significance in his own life. He discusses the use of progressed charts in astrology from the perspective of systems theory in which whole cycles are embedded within each other. Astrology, he suggests, is a larger more comprehensive system than science. Scientists can benefit from studying it regardless of its application in individual horoscopes.

Arthur M. Young, born in 1905, was the inventor of the Bell Helicoptor. He was also founder of the Institute for the Study of Consciousness in Berkeley, California, and author of The Reflexive Universe and The Geometry of Meaning.
