Dr. Herbert van Erkelens: Wolfgang Pauli and the ring i

Theoretical physicist Wolfgang Pauli discovered through his dreams and his active imagination ‘The Piano Lesson’ a dimension beyond quantum physics and depth psychology connected with love and synchronicity. A Chinese lady offered him in the Piano Lesson a ring that would enable to stay in contact with that dimension. Inside the ring there was an energy present, personified as an inner teacher and turned from lead into gold. The ring is known in mathematics as the complex unit circle and in physics as the heart of quantum physics. It is the ring i where i stands for the imaginary unit. The energy inside the ring represents a consciousness still unknown either to quantum physics or depth psychology, the sacred consciousness of the inner Christ.

Dr Herbert van Erkelens studied physics, mathematics and astronomy. He took a PhD in theoretical physics at the University of Amsterdam. As a student of Marie-Louise von Franz he devoted his life to the awakening of the Divine Feminine. He is the author of several books in the field of quantum physics, alchemy, number archetypes and crop circles. He studied the later dreams of theoretical physicist Wolfgang Pauli who was the dreamer from Psychology and Alchemy. He wrote a commentary on The Piano Lesson, an active imagination by Pauli that bridges the gap between quantum physics and depth psychology. Recently he wrote a story about a Jewish Grail knight who succeeds to find Sara, the lost Grail princess, and brings the cup of the Grail to Camelot, the castle of Queen Guinevere.

Prof. Bernard Carr: Making Time for Matter and Mind

Although physics claims to be close to a “Theory of Everything”, there are two features of the Universe that are far from understood: time and consciousness. The problem with time is that its role is very different in relativity theory and quantum theory, so its status in any final theory is unclear. The problem with consciousness is that most physicists neglect it altogether, even though there are several indications from physics itself that consciousness is a fundamental rather than incidental feature of the Universe. Since a key feature of consciousness is the flow of time, these two problems are clearly connected. However, the relationship between physical time and psychological time is still not understood and poses a profound mystery. The resolution of this mystery may require a new psychophysical paradigm, in which consciousness interacts with the Universe on a hierarchy of levels, each associated with a different specious present. The implications of this picture for normal, paranormal and mystical states of consciousness will be discussed.

Dr. Oliver Robinson: ‘Both-and’ thinking: On embracing paradox in spirituality, philosophy and science

Dialectical ‘both-and’ thinking is key to resolving paradox and integrating ideas in ways that avoid reduction of one idea to the other. In this talk, the history of such thinking in the West and East will be explored, including the Chinese yin-yang model, Hegel’s dialectical reasoning, Jung’s exploration of opposites within alchemy and the psyche, Erikson’s dialectics of psychological development, dialectical behaviour therapy, and both-and thinking in quantum physics. A dialectical model of the relationship between science and spirituality will be discussed.
