Synopsis: The universe: an eternal cosmic dance of subatomic particles of relationships at once paradoxical, yet somehow unified.

Mystics explore our universe through meditation. Nuclear physicists explore it through experimentation and hypothesis. Their paths to the truth could not be more different-but the amazing thing is that in their own ways, the mystics and the scientists are discovering the same truths about our world.

In non-technical language, with no complex mathematics or formulae, this thought-provoking program explores the main concepts and theories of modern physics, the revelations coming from particle accelerators and laboratories-and compares them with the ancient tenets of Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism. In the process, we gain a clear and fascinating picture of how such seemingly disparate areas of thought are ultimately quests for the same kind of understanding.

About the Author: Fritjof Capra, theoretical physicist, systems theorist, writer and lecturer, received his Ph.D. from the University of Vienna. He is the founder and president of the Elmwood Institute in Berkeley, CA, an international organization dedicated to nurturing new ecological visions and applying them to the solution of current social, economic and environmental problems.
