The Spiritual Mind is a mind that can search for truths in the non-empirical background of the universe. The phenomena of quantum physics show that such a background exists, which doesn’t consist of material things, but of non-material forms or patterns of information. These forms are real, even though they are invisible, because they have the potential to act on us. They form a realm of potentiality in the background of the visible reality and all empirical things and concepts are emanations out of this realm. There are indications that the forms in the realm of potentiality are contiguous and mind-like, like the thoughts in our mind. Thus, the background of the universe now appears as an indivisible wholeness, and consciousness is a cosmic property that is mystically connected with our mind.
LOTHAR SCHÄFER, PH.D.
Professor of Physical Chemistry (emeritus) at the University of Arkansas
Lothar Schäfer is a Distinguished Professor of Physical Chemistry (emeritus) at the University of Arkansas. His research in the areas of Physical Chemistry, Electron Diffraction, Applied Quantum Chemistry, and Computational Chemistry led his team to develop the first real-time gas electron diffraction instrument in which diffraction data are recorded on-line, enabling the first pulsed-beam, Time-Resolved Electron Diffraction studies of laser-excited molecules. Additionally, they performed the first quantum chemical geometry determinations of peptide molecules, predicting structural trends in proteins a decade before they were experimentally observed. He is the author of the book, “In Search of Divine Reality – Science as a Source of Inspiration which has been translated in Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. Since 1998, Dr. Schaffer has given more than 160 public lectures in the US and abroad. He has been a guest on CUNY-TV and Chopra radio.
