Theoretical Physics

Science and scholarship is a cultural achievement of humankind. Theoretical physics, as the ‘hardest’ of the sciences, thus bridges that which exists outside us – as the ‘objective’ response of nature – and the source of human creativity in the depth of our consciousness – the subjective invention of the concepts of physics. In between there are numerical patterns of mathematics, formalising and interpreting nature’s responses with a creative mind.

Heisenberg declared modern physics as an ‘image of the relationship of humans to nature’. This is clearly demonstrated in the Janus face of the wave-particle duality: both concepts, of the wave as well as the particle, mirror human thought patterns as much as the characteristics of nature.

The creative aspects of theoretical physics originate in the archetypal repertoire of our collective unconscious. With it we can also utilise mathematical concepts and the theories of physics as inspirational sources for psychological processes. Vectors, spin, the quantum wave and the principle of relativity, for instance, thus inspire many activities to support us in unfolding our processes. Mindell’s book ‘QuantumMind’ explores many of these interrelationships between physics and psychology.

Other theoretical concepts appear to be directly transferable onto different aspects of human systems: the principles of self-similarity or aspects of stability and equilibrium in chaos theory. We develop our application out of these, so far, barely explored contexts.
