What Does Quantum Physics Say About Nonduality?

What Does Quantum Physics Say About Nonduality?
We suffer from a fixed view of life. This view is imprisoned by subconscious beliefs parading about as facts, beliefs that are never closely inspected for veracity. These assumptions are camouflage concealing Reality from plain view.
In Western society, great credence is given to a partitioned, contained and located world of apparent solidity. It is only when we engender a deep desire to know the truth of our experience that these assumptions are challenged by the evidence that clearly appears to us.
The belief in a separate identity and, thus, a separate world, is a normally unchallenged assumption; it is the cornerstone of our Western material world archetype. It is also the source of all suffering.
Can Quantum Science help to destabilize these rigid views? The answer is yes.

Francis Lucille: Eternity Now

The Book that Changed My Life
Please forgive me: It is no secret that Francis Lucille is my teacher and friend. I am not impartial; it is my business to be familiar with teachers, and I know none better.
What can I say? I love the man.
How I came to know Francis was through a prepublication edition of his premier book, entitled, "Eternity Now". it had been offered to me during an early period in my sojourn initiated due to a sudden and unexpected series of destabilizing, revelatory experiences. These direct experiences so collapsed my certainty about all things that they left me for the first time in my adult life, in complete surrender and not knowing.
I could not move forward even one inch without knowing for certain the Truth about who or what I was.

James Swartz: How to Attain Enlightenment

Why Investigate Traditional Vedanta?
Many are confused and intimidated by Vedanta. There appear to be an overwhelming array of sacred texts, Godheads and unfamiliar Sanskrit terms and no one to simply lead Western seekers through this dense forest to clarity in terms and examples familiar to them.
During the Spring of 2009, while visiting our home in California, James Swartz was inspired to compile a resource on Vedanta that would be the end all experience for Westerners seeking clarity on Vedanta. In an whirlwind fashion, James quickly completed the entire first draft of the work reducing this apparently complex teaching into a format both clear,accessible and entertaining to a western audience.
The book is done.
