Description

Richard Dawkins wrote the "God Delusion" then David Berlinski answered with the "Devil's Delusion." Deepak Chopra and Leonard Mlodinow got into a pissing match and decided to fight in the same book, "War of the World Views: Where Science and Spirituality Meet - And Do Not." Michael Shermer writes his history tome in "The Moral Arc." Sean Carroll tells us how it is in "The Big Picture." Rupert Sheldrake debunks the constants of nature in "Science Set Free." Yuval Noah Harari reminds us in "Sapiens" that if it were not for our (Sapiens) ability to contrive abstract myths, we would, in fact, be monkeys. Eben Alexander goes to heaven, gets amped-up by God, and writes many books. His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, reads all the books and comes up with three options. Phenomena are either (a) evident (b) hidden (c) extremely hidden. So, who is the smart one in that pack? No wonder the Chinese Government wants to control The Dalai Lama's 15th reincarnation. This guy is good! In "The Fight for the Quantum" we discuss the interplay between science and spirituality as a polemic. Sometimes subtle, sometimes, not so much. In all cases the issues are obscure. That's why thinkers call this stuff the "Hard Problem." In Weisberg (2019), The hard problem of consciousness is the problem of explaining why any physical state is conscious rather than nonconscious... The usual methods of science involve an explanation of functional, dynamical, and structural properties- This suggests that an explanation of consciousness will have to go beyond the usual methods of science. Consciousness, therefore, presents a hard problem for science, or perhaps it marks the limits of what science can explain. (The hard problem).There are no answers in this book - only observations of the many who claim to have answers. It's a book about the folly of the human condition. It's the kind of book a person can enjoy from any perspective. Rupert Sheldrake put this in context after I sent him some early material "John, I'm glad you're writing about these topics and your style is lively and engaging, but it definitely needs tidying up a bit." (Is he British or what?!) He suggested six changes, and I made them immediately. That's the hard problem with this book. It wonders and wanders in everyone's context. It does its own quantum jumps among the Dali Lama's three options. But, It's a hell-of-a-fun-read.
