“In the fascinating dialogues presented here, leading physicists and biologists discuss with H.H. the Dalai Lama the current scientific understanding of the essential nature of the material world and the living organisms that have emerged within it. Can we know anything about atoms independently of our systems of measurement and conceptual frameworks in which we make sense of our data? Does life and consciousness emerge solely from complex configurations of molecules and cells, or are there other dimensions to reality besides the physical? These are some of the compelling questions addressed in the conversations between two great knowledge traditions, science and buddhism, by some of the leading proponents of those cultures.
