From the Publisher

Nonduality is a hard concept to grasp at first.
The most fundamental proposition is that ”I" exist, and all else in the universe is”not I". Our conditioned awareness also expresses itself as a judgmental spectrum with negative at one pole and positive at the other. In other words, our dualistic viewpoint -- which we take for granted -- is at the root of our divisiveness, dissatisfaction, and conflicting values; in short, of our unhappiness.
For millennia, teachers of nonduality have assured us that it is possible to transcend this limitation and thereby live in an awareness of dualities absence, which turns out to be: harmony, contentment and equanimity.
These four texts from the Hindu tradition clearly delineate the One Reality, That-Which-Is.

Is Neuroscience Rediscovering The Soul?

The idea that neuroscience is rediscovering the soul is, to most scientists and philosophers, nothing short of outrageous. Of course it is not. But the widespread, adverse, knee-jerk attitude presupposes the old-fashioned definition of the soul — the ethereal, immaterial entity that somehow encapsulates your essence. Surely, this kind of supernatural mumbo-jumbo has no place in modern science. And I agree. The Cartesian separation of body and soul, the res extensa (matter stuff) vs. res cogitans (mind stuff) has long been discarded as untenable in a strictly materialistic description of natura

Artist's Exhibit Borrows Human Tech To Solve Nature's Manmade Problems

Humans have long looked to animals for design inspiration. From basic camouflage to a quiet bullet train in Japan to the Wright brothers' wings, the process called biomimicry is a basic tenet of human engineering. Jonathon Keats has turned it on its head. The artist and philosopher's latest exhibit, at the Samek Art Museum at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania, is a thought experiment on the selfish ways we humans innovate. The central question of the works: We steal the animal kingdom's evolutionary inventions, so why shouldn't the animal kingdom steal ours? "What I've observed as I've resea

We Shouldn’t Dismiss People Who Deny Facts

IT’S EASY TO DISMISS PEOPLE WHO believe things that are factually incorrect—that vaccines cause autism, for example, or that climate change isn’t real. But if we really want to change how they think, we need to take an honest look at what’s driving those beliefs. Because it’s not ignorance, it’s psychology. All of us are prone to the same fundamental human principles that cause these cases of scientific denial. Research has proven that humans are distinctly uncomfortable with events or phenomena without clear causes, and when we don’t know something, we tend to fill in the gaps ourselves. Tak
