Materialism versus the Invisible

September 28, 2014 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm


SPEAKER: * Robert E Smith, Ph.D. discusses Materialism versus the Invisible

Four hundred years ago there occurred a series of events that led to a
materialist science and a materialist culture.  A combination of the
influence of Aristotle, and later the Roman Inquisition, produced our
culture and its perspective.  Descartes and Newton together led to a
materialistic science.  Descartes saw the universe as a clockwork, and
Newton established the laws of the interaction of separate bodies.
The physics that resulted ignore the influence of the invisible,
vitally important to mystics, shamans, and to dowsers today.   The
influence of the invisible produced the result that traditional
medicines, across thousands of years and thousands of miles, obtained.
They all experienced essentially the same thing.

There are many examples of the effectiveness of the invisible, both in
the storage of information and the energy used in healing, moving
underground streams, and finding lost objects.  Today’s science is
investigating the field that produces these results, and that science
will be discussed, together with its implications.

Robert E. Smith is Professor Emeritus of Human Physiology,
School of Medicine, University of California at Davis, and Visiting
Professor, Institute of Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine,
Honolulu, Hawaii, where he teaches a course on the history and
philosophy of medicine.  He is presently writing a textbook comparing
the history and philosophy of Western Medicine with that of
traditional medicines.
