The great intellectual task of our times is to unite science and spirituality into one coherent narrative. Like many others working in this area, I have previously been convinced that this requires science to come around to the spiritual philosophy that consciousness is the ground of existence. In this presentation, I will explain why I now think I was wrong. I want to explore an emergentist philosophy that accommodates the discoveries of science while casting new light on spiritual ideas such as the survival of death and psychic experiences.
