John Hagelin, Ph.D ON Consciousness & Super-string Unified Field Theory, How is knowledge lost and The Observer
In 1987 and 1989, Hagelin published two papers in the Maharishi University of Management’s Journal of Modern Science and Vedic Science on the relationship between physics and consciousness. These papers discuss the Vedic understanding of consciousness as a field, and compare it with theories of the unified field derived by modern physics. Hagelin argues that these two fields have almost identical properties and quantitative structure. He presents theoretical and empirical arguments that he says suggest the two fields are actually one and the same — specifically, that the experience of unity at the basis of the mind achieved during the meditative state is the subjective experience of the very same fundamental unity of existence revealed by unified field theories.
