BIO NOTES ON FORUM PRESENTERS
April 4, 2009- Haverford College
Gilah Yelin Hirsch, (BA UC Berkeley, MFA UCLA, is a painter, writer, theorist, photographer, videographer, filmmaker, lecturer and Professor of Art at California State University, Dominguez Hills (Los Angeles). She works in a multidisciplinary manner including art, design, anthropology, architecture, theology, philosophy, psychology, psychoneuroimmunology and world culture. As an internationally exhibiting artist since 1968, Hirsch’s paintings have been acquired by major public and private collections, and have appeared on covers and within dozens of journals, magazines and books, along with articles and book chapters about her life and work. Hirsch’s own articles and theoretical papers have been published in scholarly journals internationally, and Hirsch's film "Cosmography: The Writing of the Universe", an investigation into the relation between origin of alphabet, pattern in nature and the neurology of perception and cognition, has received worldwide interdisciplinary notice. Her current film in progress, "Reading the Landscape", brings these concepts to children of all ages in sixteen languages and cultures. Hirsch has lectured and worked in the field of psychoneurimmunology since 1980, most recently for children with cancer of the "Sunshine Foundation".
Nassim Haramein's lifelong exploration into the geometry of spacetime has resulted in an exciting comprehensive Unification theory based on a new solution to Einstein's Field Equations. This groundbreaking theory, which incorporates torque, Coriolis effects and the nonlinear mathematics of fractal systems, has been delivered to the scientific community through peer-reviewed papers and presentations at international physics conferences. His research into a variety of fields including theoretical physics, cosmology, quantum mechanics, biology, chemistry and ancient civilizations has led to a coherent understanding of the fundamental structure and model of the Universe. This new view leads to an in depth change in our current perception of physics and consciousness.
Weaving together the sciences of advanced physics, cosmology, chemistry and biology as well as the wisdom and codes of the ancients, Haramein creates an exciting unified tapestry of spacetime which may prove to be one of the most important scientific, philosophical and technological discoveries of our time.
Haramein is the Director of Research at The Resonance Project, a 501(c)3 public charity dedicated to the exploration of unification principles and their implications in our world today. The foundation is actively developing a research park where science, sustainability, green technology and permaculture come together.
GLOBAL PHILOSOPHY FORUM
A DIALOGUE ON CONSCIOUSNESS, CONNECTIVITY AND INTEGRAL MODELS OF REALITY
Some Queries for Our Dialogue
In the past several decades there have been exciting developments at the frontiers of Science, Philosophy and Spirituality. Frontier scientists have been in quest of the fundamental laws and patterns of the universe, and this quest has led them to an emerging Integral Science and explorations in the Unified Field of Nature. At the same time trends in global spirituality have sought to uncover the ultimate patterns of consciousness and common ground across religious and spiritual worldviews. This fundamental quest for Unifying Forces, Common Ground and the Unified Field that links diverse realities together has opened profound issues in the convergence of Science, Philosophy and Spirituality as we enter the 21st Century:
Is there a fundamental common ground (Integral Reality) between science and spirituality?
Are there fundamental patterns of the universe that connect nature and consciousness? Is Nature an "Integral" or "Holistic" field or "system"?
Is the Unified Field of Physics and Nature the very same Unified Field of Reason and Consciousness? What is "New Science"? What is Integral Intelligence?
Are the diverse disciplines of the Liberal Arts linked in any coherent way?
Is there a fundamental connection between Mathematics and Consciousness? Is there a common deep structure between Mathematics and the structures of awareness? Can Mathematics link Nature and Rational awareness?
What does it mean to say that Nature is a Living Integrative and Learning System? Does Consciousness pervade Nature? What is Chaos and Complexity?
Can Evolutionary Biology make significant links between the patterns of Nature, human consciousness, and structures of Life? Is there an integral narrative or story here?
What is the link between mind, body and religious experience? Can new knowledge of the functioning of the brain illuminate spiritual life and religious experience? Can an emerging paradigm of Integral Science and Spirituality provide resources to decode the deep links between mind and healing? Can mind and consciousness play a role in healing? Can recent advances in MindBody Medicine open new dimensions for a deep dialogue between Science and Spirituality? What are the roles of mind and consciousness in Integrative Medicine?
These are some the leading questions that will be explored in this exciting dialogue that brings together certain leading figures in the frontiers of Science, Global Philosophy and Spirituality (See attached flyer for details)
