Interdependence: A Common Thread in Buddhism and Modern Physics(DVD,CD)


*Select an option

Interdependence - the vital interpenetration and mutuality of every "thing" in existence with every other - is perhaps the central philosophical concept in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. Intriguingly, it also resonates strongly in many dimensions of modern physics' emerging map of the universe. This presentation explores the strongest of the parallels, notes the real differences between the philosophical and the scientific approaches, and arrives, perhaps, at a better understanding of the enthusiastic affection, with which His Holiness the Dalai Lama has always regarded the quest of modern physics. 2011. 109 minutes.
