"Bell's theorem demonstrates that the universe is fundamentally interconnected, interdependent, and inseparable."

- Fritjof Capra

"The illusion that the self and the world are broken into fragments originates in the kind of thought that goes beyond its proper measure and confuses its own product with the same independent reality. To end this illusion requires insight, not only into the world as a whole, but also into how the instrument of thought is working. Such insight implies an original and creative act of perception into all aspects of life, mental and physical, both through the senses and through the mind, and this is perhaps the true meaning of meditation."

- David Bohm

"Quantum physics thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe."

- Erwin Schrodinger

"The Buddhist expresses it in one way, the Christian in another, but both say the same: We are all one."

- Nikola Tesla 

"It turns out that all life is interconnected with all other life."

- Richard Feynman

"A human being is a part of the whole called by us 'universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

- Albert Einstein

“as Einstein put it ‘Time and space are modes by which we think, and not conditions in which we live.” 
- Donald D. Hoffman

"The essential feature in quantum interconnectedness is that the whole universe is enfolded in everything, and that each thing is enfolded in the whole."

- David Bohm

"Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real."

- Niels Bohr

“Conscious realism makes a bold claim: consciousness, not spacetime and its objects, is fundamental reality and is properly described as a network of conscious agents.” 
- Donald D. Hoffman

"I think ninety-nine times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me."

- Albert Einstein

"The notion of a separate organism is clearly an abstraction, as is also its boundary. Underlying all this is unbroken wholeness even though our civilization has developed in such a way as to strongly emphasize the separation into parts."

- David Bohm

“If you play a video game on your computer, such as "Doom" or "Uncharted", you see compelling 3D worlds with 3D objects. Yet the information is entirely 2D, limited by the number of pixels on the screen. The same is true when you look away from your computer to the world around you. It too has pixels, and all the information is 2D.” 
- Donald D. Hoffman

"The reality we can put into words is never reality itself."

- Werner Heisenberg

"I am almost certain that space and time are illusions. These are primitive notions that will be replaced by something more sophisticated."

- Nathan Seiberg

"Time is an illusion."

- Albert Einstein

"We are suspended in language."

- Niels Bohr

"The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you."

- Werner Heisenberg

"We can never know anything."

- Werner Heisenberg

"The atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts."

- Werner Heisenberg

"The multiplicity is only apparent. This is the doctrine of the Upanishads, and not of the Upanishads only. The mystical experience of the union with God regularly leads to this view, unless strong prejudices stand in the way."

- Erwin Schrodinger

"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."

- Albert Einstein

"After the conversations about Indian philosophy, some of the ideas of quantum physics that had seemed so crazy suddenly made much more sense."

- Werner Heisenberg

"Ultimately, all moments are really one, therefore now is an eternity."

- David Bohm

"May not thought itself thus be a part of reality as a whole? But then, what could it mean for one part of reality to 'know' another, and to what extent would this be possible?"

- David Bohm

"Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter."

- Albert Einstein

"The universe consists of frozen light." 

- David Bohm

"Space is not empty. It is full, a plenum as opposed to a vacuum, and is the ground for the existence of everything, including ourselves. The universe is not separate from this cosmic sea of energy."

- David Bohm

"Indeed, the attempt to live according to the notion that the fragments are really separate is, in essence, what has led to the growing series of extremely urgent crises that is confronting us today."

- David Bohm

"All effort to bring order into disorder is disorder."

- David Bohm

"Some might say: ‘Fragmentation of cities, religions, political systems, conflict in the form of wars, general violence, fratricide, etc., are the reality. Wholeness is only an ideal, toward which we should perhaps strive.’ But this is not what is being said here. Rather, what should be said is that wholeness is what is real, and that fragmentation is the response of this whole to man’s action, guided by illusory perception, which is shaped by fragmentary thought."

- David Bohm

"The notion that the one who thinks (the Ego) is at least in principle completely separate from and independent of the reality that he thinks about is of course firmly embedded in our entire tradition."

- David Bohm

"So what is needed is for man to give attention to his habit of fragmentary thought, to be aware of it, and thus bring it to an end. Man’s approach to reality may then be whole, and so the response will be whole."

- David Bohm

"One must then go on to a consideration of time as a projection of multidimensional reality into a sequence of moments."

- David Bohm

"What is called for is not an integration of thought, or a kind of imposed unity, for any such imposed point of view would itself be merely another fragment. Rather, all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some domain in which it is clear and adequate."

- David Bohm

"Both observer and observed are merging and interpenetrating aspects of one whole reality, which is indivisible and unanalyzable."

- David Bohm
