Expanding the Scope of Science

How it all started…

David Lorimer introduces the Galileo Commission Report

GALILEO COMMISSION REMIT

The world today is dominated by science and by its underlying assumptions, which are seldom explicitly articulated. The Galileo Commission’s remit is to open public discourse and to find ways to expand science so that it can accommodate and explore important human experiences and questions that science, in its present form, is unable to integrate.

Following widespread consultation with 90 advisers representing 30 universities worldwide, we have published the Galileo Commission Report, written by Prof  Dr Harald Walach and entitled Beyond a Materialist Worldview – Towards an Expanded Science.  The report has been widely endorsed as a groundbreaking document and we encourage you to read it for yourself and spread the word among your professional network.  Summaries  of the argument are available in a number of languages.

An End to Upside Down Thinking – Mark Gober

An End to Upside Down Thinking

What drives all of your life’s priorities, values, and decisions? In the sequel to An End to Upside Down Thinking, Mark Gober builds a science-based worldview from which we can create a compass for living. In stark contrast to his prior belief system, Gober explains why life is actually full of meaning. From this perspective, he lays out how we might approach life accordingly, along with the well-traveled “awakening” path that we’re likely to encounter. At this pivotal juncture in human history, approaching life in a new way is the antidote that our civilization desperately needs.

Rupert Sheldrake – Questions for Materialists: Part 1

Galileo Commission adviser Rupert Sheldrake asks: Is the mechanistic worldview a testable scientific theory, or a metaphor? If it is a metaphor, why is the machine metaphor better in every respect than the organism metaphor?

Life-Form A Matters-Syncytium: DeepScience for Matter Correlates of Conscious States – Mukho, A.K.

The perspective developed in this paper calls for a DeepScience to show how the essence of the material science is interconnected with the essence of the Multiversity along the sub-quantum and sub-subquantum recess of nature involving presently non-observable several exotic states of matter, dark matter, neutrinos, operations of informationstates, operations of cognitive faculty such as mind, self, life-principle and consciousness. Investigation of this interdisciplinary terrain has translational value for next three century’s science.

Consciousness – Janik Pilet

Consciousness is often considered as the prerogative of human beings, and as more or less synonymous with reflective and emotional intelligence, associated with a perception of oneself and the reality of the external world. But given the emergence of consciousness from life, is it not more reasonable to admit that it can take on a more nuanced meaning than a simple "all or nothing" alternative: conscious or non-conscious. It is therefore important to define very precisely the meaning in which this word will be used here to differentiate it from the notions of intelligence, thought, perception, morality, or feeling.

Emergence of Homo spiritualis: Of Essential Requirements – Faith, Devotion and Love – Mukho, A.K.

On the landscape of human possibilities, consciousness-rooted futurologists predicts emergence of Homo spiritualis from the present Homo sapiens. On this passage, to tide over different grades of uncertainties cultivation of Faith, Devotion and Love is felt essential. The deep science in psychology, biology and neurology has been discussed while cultivating such qualities in life. The beneficial spin offs from such perspective are new ideas and several research questions addressing of which might help to extend the vertical depth and horizon of science.

Efimov K-theory of Diamonds – Shanna Dobson

Motivated by Scholze and Fargues' geometrization of the local Langlands correspondence using perfectoid diamonds and Clausen and Scholze's work on the K-theory of adic spaces using condensed mathematics, we introduce the Efimov K-theory of diamonds. We propose a pro-diamond, a large stable (infinity,1)-category of diamonds D^{diamond}, diamond spectra and chromatic tower, and a localization sequence for diamond spectra.
