Consciousness and the expanding universe . . .

Physical scientists and spiritual thinkers find themselves roaming the same territory these days. Will physics and metaphysics ever merge?

Arthur Eddington, also a 20th-century British astrophysicist, put it more succinctly when he wrote, "The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff."

Many scientists today consider such statements speculative if not mystical. A Web surfer is just as likely to find these statements mixed with the words of Sufi poets as in compilations of quotations from leading physicists.
