This enthralling introduction to modern physics presents the most exciting, cutting-edge scientific discoveries in a manner easily comprehensible to entry-level college students and lay physicists.
The most advanced principles of quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, superstring theory, astronomy, and big bang inflationary cosmology are explored in detail and are illuminated by the most profound understanding of consciousness — Maharishi’s Vedic Science and Technology of Consciousness.
The course reveals how these latest discoveries of modern physics and the ancient Vedic science of consciousness are inextricably linked and, in the final analysis, describe the same ultimate reality of life: the Unified Field, a completely unified, self-interacting field of pure intelligence at the basis of the universe. In this way, these discoveries of modern science become directly and intimately relevant to the innermost life of the student.
John Hagelin, Ph.D., is a world-renowned quantum physicist, educator, public policy expert, and leading proponent of peace. He received his A.B. summa cum laude from Dartmouth College and his M.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard University.
Dr. Hagelin conducted pioneering research at CERN (the European Center for Particle Physics) and SLAC (the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center). He is responsible for the development of a highly successful Grand Unified Field Theory which was featured on the cover of Discover Magazine.
Dr. Hagelin was named winner of the prestigious Kilby Award, recognizing Dr. Hagelin as “a scientist in the tradition of Einstein, Jeans, Bohr and Eddington.” The Kilby Award is presented to scientists who have made “major contributions to society through their applied research in the fields of science and technology.”
Dr. Hagelin is also the chief administrator for Maharishi’s programs in the US. People who have heard Dr. Hagelin speak are fascinated by his explanations of the relationship between consciousness and the unified field, and how the long-range field effects of the TM and TM-Sidhi® program contribute to national invincibility and world peace.
The course may be taken for credit, or non-credit, just for fulfillment. For those taking the credit course, there will be homework, quizzes and tests. Dr. Hagelin will hold live question and answer sessions at scheduled times. In addition, you will also be able to chat with other students through on-line discussion forums.
This self-paced, 18-lesson online course includes a total of 70 hours of prepared lectures and self-study options, as well as live Q&A with Dr. Hagelin. Students taking the course for academic credit will have additional assignments — homework, quizzes, and an exam which will take an additional hour or more per lesson. The credit course must be completed in three months. The non-credit course must be completed in six months.
This course requires prior familiarity with the theory and practice of Maharishi’s Vedic Science and Technology of Consciousness, including instruction in the Transcendental Meditation® technique. Additionally, students should have had some exposure to Vedic Science or Science of Creative Intelligence-based knowledge in order to understand the terminology and material in the course.
The tuition for the course will be announced soon
