Fred Alan Wolf, PhD, is a theoretical physicist who left academia and has spent his career exploring the mystical realms where consciousness and physics interface. He received the National Book Award for Taking the Quantum Leap: The New Physics for Non-Scientists. His other books include The Spiritual Universe: How Quantum Physics Proves the Existence of the Soul, The Dreaming Universe: A Mind-Expanding Journey into the Realm Where Psyche and Physics Meet, Parallel Universes: The Search for Other Worlds, The Eagle’s Quest: A Physicist Find Scientific Truth at the Heart of the Shamanic World, Space Time and Beyond, Mind Into Matter: A New Alchemy of Science and Spirit, Matter Into Feeling, Dr. Quantum’s Little Book of Big Ideas, The Yoga of Time Travel: How the Mind Can Defeat Time, and Time Loops and Space Twists: How God Created the Universe.
In this video, originally recorded in 2015, he presents the idea that what we call the “universe” is really an illusion. He also suggests that what is real are our feelings. He analyzes the biblical sentence, “And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” He notes that light itself, by virtue of Einstein’s theory of relativity, exists outside of time and space. Then he suggests that some of the Qabalistic ideas of his teacher, Carlos Suares, approach similar ideas in quantum field theory. He explores the relationship between matter and energy and describes the nature of a “field” in physics.
