Below are quotes from Max Planck, one of the founders of Quantum Theory and general brainbox . We and the world are not what we seem .
Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature . And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are …. part of the mystery that we are trying to solve .
I regard consciousness as fundamental . I regard matter as derivative from consciousness . We cannot get behind consciousness . Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness .
As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear-headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as the result of my research about the atoms, this much – there is not matter as such !
All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together ….we must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind . This Mind is the matrix of all matter .
