The Wood Wide Web

The most transformational book I ever have read is The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird. I first read it in 1973, and I didn’t realize until much later the way that book formed a basis for my later afterlife research. It opened my eyes to a deeper awareness that nothing... Read More

Stumbling Toward a Theory of Everything

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 15, 2018 • 20 Comments

Stephen Hawking’s death yesterday felt especially sad to me. We saw him as trapped in a crippled body, but how much more tragic was the fact that such a great mind was for his entire life forlornly trapped in a crippled science! The simple explanation of his “theory of everything” is a tautology – gravity... Read More

Creating God in Man’s Image

Posted by Roberta Grimes • January 16, 2018 • 8 Comments

One of the creepiest things I have read in awhile is an article about someone who intends to create a powerful artificial intelligence and build a new religion around it. Good grief, what would be the point of that? It’s as if science has at last achieved a religious singularity! The fact that human religions... Read More

Believing is Not Seeing

(I had hoped to do a blog post now about the 2017 AREI Symposium, but I’d like to include a link for 2018 and that website isn’t quite ready. Please watch this space!!) Many of those who contact me will ask me what I “believe” about this or that. Some of those wrestling with the... Read More

Science vs. Religion

I often urge my audiences to subscribe to Scientific American. When I add that it’s really a humor magazine, the room will generally erupt in laughter so most people don’t hear my explanation of why I find the magazine so amusing. Scientific American actually is funny, but in a tragic sort of way: more and... Read More

Cargo Cult Science at Harvard

Posted by Roberta Grimes • November 24, 2016 • 18 Comments

In the last century there were isolated tribes on remote Pacific islands that tried to keep the bounty of Western goods coming by building wooden replicas of cargo planes. They maintained their jungle runways, and when explorers later visited these islands they were dumbfounded to find that a whole system of pseudo-religious beliefs had grown... Read More

We Live in a Matrix

The greatest scientist in the history of the world was Max Planck. He won the 1918 Nobel Prize in physics as the father of quantum mechanics, but that was not his greatest achievement. The most important thing Dr. Planck ever did was to demonstrate based on quantum principles that human consciousness is primary and it... Read More

The Wrong End of the Microscope

Watching research scientists continue to express their certainty about materialism when they have to know the dogma is wrong would be amusing if it were not so pathetic. They realize their profession is floundering. But it is their profession, after all, and they have families to feed and retirements to fund! So they continue to... Read More

Timeless and Spaceless

Posted by Roberta Grimes • July 05, 2016 • 27 Comments

As we attempt to make ever better sense of what actually is going on, the hardest concept for most of us to grasp is the fact that in nearly all of reality there is no objective time or space. I’m more used to it now, and I think I begin to understand the science of... Read More

“There is Nothing New to be Discovered”

Posted by Roberta Grimes • May 23, 2016 • 15 Comments

There are times when we encounter willful ignorance so spectacular that we stand in humble awe of it. How is it possible for an adult human being in the year 2016 to remain entirely unaware of every bit of modern afterlife evidence? Incredibly, there is one physicist who claims to be so unaware. According to... Read More
