“Einstein and Quantum Nonlocality: A Doorway to Emptiness and Compassion”
This is an easy introduction to the connection between quantum nonlocality and emptiness, along with a feeling approach to compassion through suffering. Taken from several chapters in my new book and only 3,284 words.
“Raimon Panikkar and the Union of Love and Knowledge: Quantum Mechanics and Compassion”
This essay in honor of Panikkar combines some of his central ideas to some ideas in my forthcoming book Tibetan Buddhism and Modern Physics: Toward the Union of Love and Knowledge (to be published by the Templeton Foundation Press.). Not a technical paper. 5,521 words.
“Quantum Mechanics and Compassion”
[This is a chapter from my new book, Tibetan Buddhism and Modern Physics: Toward the Union of Love and Knowledge. It discusses parallels between some fundamental principles of quantum mechanics and the Tibetan Buddhist idea of compassion. In the process, it draws out some uncomfortable conclusions. 5844 words.]
“The Physics of Peace: Quantum Nonlocality and Buddhist Emptiness”
Through a careful, but nontechnical, analysis of Bell’s Inequality we see how nonlocality in quantum mechanics makes a profound connection with Emptiness in Middle Way Buddhism and thereby can contribute to world peace. 11,066 words. Another chapter in Tibetan Buddhism and Modern Physics.
