Jeff Lieberman on Science and Spirituality

I really enjoyed this video.  Jeff delivers an impressive no-nonsense explanation for spiritual enlightenment and who we are from a more intellectual and scientific approach.

Per TEDxCambridge:

Jeff Lieberman, an MIT-trained artist, scientist and engineer, makes a scientific argument for mystical experience. He asks us to challenge our perception of what we are, our relationship to the universe, and our relationship to one another. Our minds are “thought-generating machines.” What we would happen if we could turn off the machine? If we could transcend our individual experience of the world?

  1. Kudos!! I must say this kid knows his stuff… I hope he’s a glimpse of the thinking of our next generation, spiritual evolution is our way to peace on earth. Awakening to the Spiritual Energy beings we are and have always been. The time has come. It’s time we wake up. I don’t care if it takes baby steps or happens overnight. I do believe, we are evolving to this way of thinking…Even us old farts!! “And I think to myself, what a Wonderful World!”

    • I tend to get excited when I see the scientific community begin to explore and confirm what the mystics have always known. I think it helps to bring realization more firmly into our physical world and perceptions. I hope science continues to delve more deeply. Not only does it show we humans are all one in consciousness, but the entire Universe.
