                                            August 2006 Weekly Quotes   

 

 

Meditation is a tool like Galileo's telescope or Darwin's observations. Shamata (a specific process

of meditation) is a telescope of the mind.
Alan Wallace, Toward A Science of Consciousness 2006


There are three qualities to the cultivation of shamata (a specific process of meditation)
1. Setting the mind at ease
2. Establishing stability of attention
3 Developing high acuity of attention - the vividness of experience
Alan Wallace, Toward A Science of Consciousness 2006


Practical advice for meditators:

It is much better to keep sessions short - perhaps just fifteen minutes - practicing good habits

rather than practicing wandering mind for two hours. It is a balancing act between effort and

quality. Eventually the need for effort (introspection) diminishes.
Alan Wallace, Toward A Science of Consciousness 2006

 

All scientists have physics envy.
Dean Radin, Toward A Science of Consciousness 2006


Psi (psychic or paranormal phenomena) is the recursion of the universe being aware of itself.
Dean Radin, Toward A Science of Consciousness 2006


He brought the study of consciousness out from under the thumb of behaviorism and into the

light of day.
Stuart Hameroff, Toward A Science of Consciousness 2006
in remembrance of Francis Crick and his legacy
