Quotation of the Day

Stephen M. Barr, Professor of Physics, University of Delaware

“Is the human mind nothing but matter in motion?  Surprisingly, physics itself, a subject concerned only with matter and its properties, may tell us that the answer is no.  At least, this is the view of some modern physicists of great eminence.  Their view is based on one of the epoch-making discoveries of twentieth-century science: quantum theory.  What they claim is that the fundamental postulates of quantum theory imply that the human mind cannot be completely reduced to physics.” ― Modern Physics and Ancient Faith, Stephen M. Barr, University of Notre Dame Press, Notre Dame, Indiana ©2003, Page 227.
