Fritjof Capra: The Tao of Physics

the tao of physics fritjof capra на русском

Logical reasoning was considered by the Taoists as part of the artificial world of man, together with social etiquette and moral standards. It gives a nice overview on eastern cultures and on those physical phenomena that can be linked to them. Possible ex library copy, thatâ ll have the markings and stickers associated from the library. The Chinese masters always stressed that Ch'an, or Zen, is our daily experience, the 'everyday mind' as Ma-tsu proclaimed. Having said that, I really liked this book.

The fourth edition in English was published in 2000. A healthy diet consists, for the Chinese, in balancing these yin and yang elements. It seems most paradoxical to us that experiences and values which we had always believed to be contrary should be, after all, aspects of the same thing. It has no special doctrine or philosophy, no formal creeds or dogmas, and it asserts that this freedom from all fixed beliefs makes it truly spiritual. Η κβαντομηχανική, από την άλλη, περιγράφει τον κόσμο με πιθανότητες και μόνο αφού εκδηλωθεί μια κατάσταση μπορεί να περιγράψει τι έγινε τελικά αν και όχι γιατί έγινε, παρά μόνο πώς έγινε και πόσο πιθανό ήταν να συμβεί. It is amazing that, at the same time when Lao Tzu and his followers developed their world view, the essential features of this Taoist view were taught also in Greece, by a man whose teachings are known to us only in fragments and who was, and still is, very often misunderstood.

Traditional Chinese medicine, too, is based on the balance of yin and yang in the human body, and a illness is seen as a disruption of this balance. The standard model is based on the notion that the universe is composed of material particles and nothing more. This is hardly a philosophical basis for narcissism. The rest of the doctrine, as expounded in the voluminous sutras, is seen as supplementary. However, what I found was an author who not only was dull but founded his 'correlations' Well, this is my first one star on good reads, that means this book was even worse than the Third Hunger Games book. The first thing we did was sit around in a circle and talk about ourselves. Chu Hsi was an outstanding philosopher who combined Confucian scholarship with a deep understanding of Buddhism and Taoism, and incorporated elements of all three traditions in his philosophical synthesis.

What, then, are the patterns of the cosmic Way which man has to recognize? It was followed by many similar experiences which helped me gradually to realize that a consistent view of the world is beginning to emerge from modern physics which is harmonious with ancient Eastern wisdom. This was what is called the state of perfect unity. From the beginning, this philosophy had two complementary aspects. Mystics explore our universe through meditation. Throughout the book, his or her understanding of physics should progress steadily, but a comparable progression in the understanding of Eastern mysticism may not occur.

In 1975, a young Austrian physicist by the name of Fritjof Capra published a bestselling book called The Tao of Physics that still can be found on the science shelves of most bookstores. Each organ has a meridian associated with it in such a way that yang meridians belong to yin organs and vice versa. Enlightenment in Zen does not mean withdrawal from the world but means, on the contrary, active participation in everyday affairs. Such was certainly not the mind of Johannes Kepler, who spent several years of his life working to account for barely a one tenth of one degree of angle disparity between the orbit of Mars and theory, convinced that the human mind, created in the image of a rational God, could precisely learn the truth about the rational creation of that God. Eastern mysticism meets modern physics. Both the Soto and Rinzai schools attach the greatest importance to zazen, or sitting meditation, which is practiced in the Zen monasteries every day for many hours.

For the most part in this book Capra is simply looking at the interesting similarities between these two ways of thinking - and they are striking. Since its inception, the standard model has agreed with all physics data and was crowned in 2012 with the observation of the long-predicted Higgs boson. The Tao of Physics was followed by other books of the same genre like The Hidden Connection, and The Web of Life in which Capra extended the argument of how and scientific findings of today relate, and how Eastern mysticism might also have answers to some of the biggest scientific challenges of today. This constitutes as insurmountable a leap for logic as it does for science. Mystical physics is a grossly misapplied version of ancient Hindu and Buddhist philosophies, which were based on the notion that only by the complete rejection of self can one find inner peace in this world of suffering and hopelessness. Where they promote the new mythology as an antidote for self-absorption, I assert that they are manufacturing a drug that induces it.

The dynamic character of yin and yang is illustrated by the ancient Chinese symbol called Fai-ch; T'u, 'Diagram of the Supreme Ultimate': This diagram is a symmetric arrangement of the dark yin and the bright yang, but the symmetry is not static. He was very interested and very open, and he told me something that I think is not known publicly because he never published it. The Chinese mind was not given to abstract logical thinking and developed a language which is very different from that which evolved in the West. Nor is this book a deep exploration of Taoism or other Eastern Religious Philosophy. In her 1980 book The Aquarian Conspiracy, Marilyn Ferguson predicted an irrevocable turnabout in human consciousness that would produce a radical change in our culture.

This book bridged a major divide in my perception of the world, bringing together ideas of Quantum Physics and Eastern Mysticism. These opposites include, first and foremost, the concepts of good and bad which are interrelated in the same way as yin and yang. On the one hand, the translation of the Buddhist sutras stimulated Chinese thinkers and led them to interpret the teachings of the Indian Buddha in the light of their own philosophies. On the left page you see, essentially, some scribbled math equations. I once attended a Buddhist meditation class in Boulder, which is a center for that sort of thing Capra's book was published in Boulder. At the time I was getting increasingly interested in physics, and at the same time Buddhism.

Postscript: Modern physics is even more reductionist than classical physics. They are the two poles which set the limits for the cycles of change: The yang having reached its climax retreats in favor of the yin; the yin having reached its climax retreats in favor of the yang. Ενέργεια — ύλη, σωματίδιο — κύμα, κίνηση — ακινησία, ύπαρξη — ανυπαρξία, όλα είναι έννοιες που από μόνες τους δεν έχουν καμία σημασία, παρά μόνο σε σχέση με το πώς τις αντιλαμβανόμαστε εμείς. Each of these activities is known in Japan as a do, that is, a tao or 'way' toward enlightenment. And that could be because, first of all, with non—fiction books it's hardly a matter of writing style unless it's a really good book or a really bad one a Ok so I have a small confession to make.

In the words of Huai Nan Tzu, Those who follow the natural order flow in the current of the Tao. In order to fully appreciate the force of this book, it is important to keep in mind not only the results of physics, but also the scientific endeavor itself. Thus he says A dog is not reckoned good because he barks well, and a man is not reckoned wise because he speaks skillfully. Heisenberg said that this was a great help for him. They cannot be confined within a rule, It is only change that is at work here.
