Concept of ‘hypercosmic God’ wins Templeton Prize, Amanda Gefter, New Scientist, March 2009

Subject: The d’Espagnat article ‘hypercosmic God‘ (linked just above): Wonderful read and conclusion!

Message: Thank you! In 1980 I spent time with d’Espagnat with JP Vigier in conversation with Alain Aspect in d’Orsay. After demonstrations of the experimental apparatus, we discussed his concept of a veiled reality. At that time we hadn’t begun to explore the meaning of Max Planck’s base units.

Cicada and fireflies in Hamilton: Perhaps on an early Sunday morning you arise and go first to Honeycomb, 248 Bay Road, South Hamilton, MA for your morning coffee and pastry. Then to the polo fields, then to Wenham Tea House for late lunch, then back a bit north to Appleton Farms owned by the Trustees of Reservations. The fireflies will light the way. GPS Appleton Farms. Asbury Grove. Patton’s Home. Pingree School. Funky times for discovery.

John Muir: “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find that it is bound fast by a thousand invisible cords that cannot be broken, to everything in the universe.”
