Quantum physics: origin, paradox and spirituality

16 Aug

Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976) was the pioneer physicist responsible for creating a quantum model for the atom, his studies were essential for the evolution of the area of quantum mechanics with theories related to atoms, cosmic rays and subatomic particles.
In 1927 Heisenberg proposed the “Principle of Uncertainty,” also called the “Heisenberg Principle,” with which he said that it was impossible to measure the speed and precision of the position of a particle. In 1932 Heisenberg received the Nobel Prize in Physics for the creation of quantum mechanics.
Erwin Schrodinger (1887-1961) was an Austrian physicist who created an equation that became known as Schrödinger’s equation, from which he can perceive the changes of the quantum states in a physical system, made it wider than just subparticles.
Famous is his imaginary experiment called Schrodinger’s Cat, a cat is placed in a box with a poison pot together. By quantum physics, he would be alive and dead at the same time.
In 1933, Erwin Schrodinger received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his findings on atomic theory.
Deepak Chopra is an Indian physician who, an ayurveda professor, who does an alternative medicine relating body and mind, Amit Goswami, Indian physicist, parapsychology scholar, has a line of thought called “quantum mysticism”, and the Austrian physicist Tritjof Capra is known for his work “The Tao of Physics”.
But I would add three thinkers who have their thinking related to quantum physics and who I think are more solid in the quantum physics and spirituality relationship: Basarab Nicolescu (1942-), theoretical physicist who has a book Transdisciplinarity: theory and practice (2008), Thomas Francis Banchoff 1938) who had a long dialogue with Salvador Dali about his mystical intuitions, especially about his picture Christus Hypercubus, and, far from the idea of the Cosmic Christ of Teilhard Chardin, which unites theology, anthropology, physics and communication.
