Editor’s Desk: Optimism: An Antidote to Worry

One of the keys I’ve learned about living with grace in a chaotic world is to be optimistic – optimism is an antidote to worry. I recently came across this excellent quote from Chris Hardwick. It’s quoted in the book Drawing on the Dream: Finding My Way by Art by artist Denise Kester. “Worry is a misuse of your imagination.” That says a lot. We often talk about imagination being a uniquely human capacity. Whether or not this is true, imagination pervades our existence and influences most everything we do. It was Albert Einstein who once said, “Imagination is more

A New Scientific Paradigm Where Consciousness Is Fundamental And Matter Is Derived From It with Mark Gober

Scientific materialism is the reigning paradigm of scientific inquiry. It is the notion that physical matter is fundamental in the universe. Materialism assumes that matter produces consciousness and holds that the brain produces consciousness. Therefore, when your brain dies, your consciousness dies. Gober has compiled extensive research that turns scientific materialism upside down and purports that consciousness is the fundamental basis of all reality, including matter. He gives examples from many reputable physicists who concur that all matter derives from consciousness. All this raises the question of whether or not life is finite. Gober says, “What I think the evidence points

Restoring Meaning And Dignity To End-Of-Life Care with Katy Butler

We live in a time when advanced medicine can give us the ability to live longer and longer but ultimately death is a reality. Advanced medicine, most especially conveyor-belt medicine, is not set up to prepare us for a peaceful death. The final reality of death is unavoidable but the path to it is unpredictable. No matter how much we want to control things, disabilities can arise suddenly in the form of heart attacks, strokes, or accidents to name a few. Or, we can find ourselves in the thrall of Western medicine when we or a loved one gets a
