The Mystics and Scientists conferences have been held every year since 1978, and are dedicated to forging a creative understanding of the complementary roles of scientific and mystical approaches to reality. The conferences always provide a highly engaging and creative opportunity to come together with like-minded people in a spirit of exploration and dialogue. Our theme this year revisits the broad relationship of science and spirit from both Eastern and Western perspectives. Our speakers bring together world views from biology, philosophy, psychology, religious studies, music, art and spirituality, and they will address the theme from their various angles of expertise.

This conference will balance keynote presentations and discussions in facilitated small groups so that we can also access the ‘wisdom in the room’ with participants sharing their own insights. There will also be optional meditation and movement each morning. We very much look forward to your participation in what promises to be a memorable weekend.

 

The Scientific and Medical Network – Exploring and expanding the frontiers of science, medicine and spirituality.

The Network is devoted to the emergence of a more enlightened world – a world in which the wisdom of spirituality and the thoughtfulness of philosophy balance the power of science and technology.

We recognise that our world is still plagued by deep problems and enduring conflicts. Many of these are caused by dogmatic, superstitious or ill-informed worldviews. However, we believe that individuals and societies can transform themselves.  The key is learning to integrate evidence-based science, born of rational philosophy, with the love and inner peace cultivated by spiritual practice. The Network is a worldwide community of professionals dedicated to this transformative task.

We invite you to join us in co-creating a paradigm shift to bring truth, beauty, health and well-being into harmony, and so help heal our fractured culture.  Membership is open to all who are sympathetic with our mission, aims and values.

BODY ISSUES - HUMAN and ROBOTIC | by Paul Kieniewics 🤖Back in the 1960’s, the Polish Science Fiction writer, Stanisław Lem wrote a short story about robots. A rocket along with its calculator lands on an uninhabited planet and subsequently spawns a race of robots. The robots (who call themselves Magnificans), build an entire city along with theatre and music ensembles. Along with their leader, worshipped as “His Inductivitee, The First Calculator”, they are filled with a total hatred for the human race, and everything human (which they call, gookumkind). One has to wonder whether this humorous piece is actually describing the future of human- robotic relationships. It’s certainly a relevant subject given the amount of research these days into making robots and other forms of AI.
