Spiritual Practice and Scientific InquirywithEdward R. Close

Books Mentioned In This Interview

Edward R. Close, PhD, is author of Transcendental Physics. He is coauthor (with Vernon Neppe) of Reality Begins with Consciousness: A Paradigm Shift That Works. He is also author of a lengthy chapter titled “The Mathematical Unification of Time, Space, Matter, Energy, and Consciousness” in Is Consciousness Primary? edited by Gary Schwartz and Marjorie Woollacott. His forthcoming book is titled Secrets of the Sacred Cube: A Cosmic LoveStory.

Here he argues that all scientists can benefit from a cultivation of their inner experience — as all science is based upon observation. He, personally, has been practicing a form of kriya yoga for almost sixty years. The purpose of spiritual practices is to create an alignment of body, mind, and spirit. He expresses this idea graphically, using the metaphor of the Rubik’s cube. When individuals are so aligned, they become more effective in achieving their goals. He also suggests that the principles of spiritual practice are akin to the laws of science.

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is a past vice-president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology; and is the recipient of the Pathfinder Award from that Association for his contributions to the field of human consciousness exploration.
