"Consciousness, and Krishna’s Form” (SB 1.18.5)

San Diego - December 28, 1988 / (065)

Thompson begins this lecture by listing the symptoms of Kali Yuga described in the Puranas. For example, the Puranas state that during this age, “social status is gained simply by wealth,” and “justice is obtained only by power.” Thompson then expands the discussion by touching upon a variety of concerns including quantum mechanics, epiphenomenalism, Darwinian theory, and the concept of achinya-bedhabedha-tattva.
