"The Glaring Omission of Consciousness" (SB 10.3.12)

San Diego – March 3, 1986 / (116)

Modern science has constructed a highly sophisticated model of the universe strictly in terms of matter. Yet the Srimad-Bhagavatam also offers complex descriptions of the cosmos, albeit while drawing from a perspective considered higher dimensional and spiritual. Thompson offers a critique of material analyses aspiring to capture reality in toto, with specific concern to “the glaring omission of consciousness.”
