Dr. Rory Mac Sweeney returns for the final show of a three part series discussing some of the ideas in his book The Paradox of Lucid Dreaming – A Metaphysical Theory of Mind.
During the show, we further probe the blurring boundaries between the micro world of quantum physics and the macro realm of our so-called reality, and those between the waking and dreaming states of consciousness. It would appear that as these apparently discrete worlds collide and cross over, the gulf between mind and matter, between thought and the physical realm, is narrowing at an increasing rate. Developments in technology, language, and evolutionary biology are converging as we become more conscious of our individual and collective creative processes, carving reality from a field of potential where everything theoretically exists. Subjective experience, which mainstream science says we should ignore, is becoming increasingly significant. As these phenomena exponentially expand, what then happens to our preconceived notions of what is fact and what is truth? Is there, in the end, a hard, fast reality out there, or is all just a story that consciousness is telling itself?
