In this classic recording, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the sixth person to walk on the moon and the founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, explores the nature of consciousness. Dr. Mitchell explains Quantum Science and its relationship to the external material world and internal experience. Dr. Mitchell brings light to the essence and significance of the concepts featured in The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. This recording is a great primer for anyone wanting more information on the ideas introduced in The Lost Symbol. Putting modern times in the broad context of science, history and the precarious state of our environment, Dr. Mitchell echoes the sentiment that "God did not play dice" when he/she created the universe. He then stitches these concepts together into an easy to grasp and entirely accessible presentation that helps us better understand the nature of existence. Excerpt from recording: "We are all a part of the same thing. There is a connection. There is intelligence. There is a feeling of oneness, an extension of self. And it's a joyous and wonderful experience. As I experienced it at this point coming back from the moon and looking at the earth, suddenly I recognized that our scientific description of reality of this universe was far from complete. Our model was not yet filled out, and on the other hand our religious descriptions of ourselves, of creation, of the universe -- all of them were somewhat flawed and incomplete as well. In other words, our knowledge of who and what we are, how we got here, where we came from and where we are going is very inadequate at this point in history, and yet there is a feeling of intelligence, of peace, of abundance, of process, that gives one comfort and joy in observing this magnificent universe of which we are a part."
