About the Book

 

Since antiquity, many prominent thinkers of the world, from plato to Tagore and from Newton to Einstein, have attempted to unveil the nature of reality. But reality seems always deeper than our feeble minds can comprehend. Can a combined effort of science and spirituality, the two most dominant forces of humanity, help to delve deeper into the nature of reality? This unique dialogue between Dr. T.D. Singh and Sir Roger Penrose; like the well-known East-West dialogue between Tagore and Einstein, is a sincere attempt to seek some possible answers to the question of reality. Reflecting on a wide range of topics from consciousness to cosmology and from scientific mystery to mathematical beauty, this dialogue will provide readers with useful insights in their quest for the ultimate reality.

 

About the Author

 

Sir Roger Penrose (1931) is a world- renowned mathematical physicist from the University of Oxford. The scope of his work ranges from quantum physics and theories of human consciousness to relativity theory and observations on the structure of the universe. He is well-known for his 1974 invention of Penrose tilings, which are formed from two tiles that can only tile the plane aperiodically. He has advocated the “twister theory” concerning space structure, which unifies the theory of general relativity and quantum mechanism to develop a quantum gravity theory in order to reconstruct the whole theoretical construction of space. Along with Hamer off, he has also constructed a theory of human consciousness in which human consciousness is the result of quantum gravity effects in microtubules. His most recent book is The Road to Reality.

 

Dr. T. D. Singh (1937-2006): A scientist and spiritualist known for his pioneering efforts to interface between science and religion for a deeper understanding of life and the universe, he received his Ph.D. in Physical Organic Chemistry from the University of California, Irvine in 1974. He has contributed many papers in the Journal of American Chemical Society and the Journal of Organic Chemistry in the field of fast proton transfer kinetics in model biological systems using stopped-flow technique and NMR spectroscopy. He also worked on gas phase reaction mechanisms using Ion Cyclotron Resonance OCR) spectroscopy. He underwent Vaishnava Vedanta Studies (1970-77) under His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada and was appointed as Director of the Bhaktivedanta Institute (1974) which is a center to promote studies about the relationaship between science and Vedanta. He has organized three International conferences on science and religion - First and Second World Congress for the Synthesis of Science and Religion (1986 & 1997) and First International Conference on the Study of Consciousness within Science (1990) where a galaxy of prominent scientists and religious leaders including several Nobel Laureates participated.
