At one time, a few decades back, we thought that matter and energy are two independent building bricks of our physical world. [SUPPORTING:1]

However, we progressed to find the matter-energy continuum. Quarks as the packets of energy have shown us that everything in the physical world can be conceived as essential energy and is governed by the equation E= mc[sup] 2 . As Fritj of Capra has put it, the science is in transition to move to understand the deeper and subtler dimensions of creation to bring into its fold consciousness. Attempts are continuously made to understand the facets of consciousness, spectrum of consciousness, etc. It is in this context, Prof Josephson tells often in his lectures that we need to go beyond quantum physics. He has great expectations in the ancient wisdom of the East in general and Upanishads in particular.
