This transcript of a discussion in July 1930 between Albert Einstein and Rabindranath Tagore, an Indian philosopher, is much older than the discovery of Beauty and Truth quarks. Unfortunately it's rare these days to see the descriptions Beauty and Truth ascribed to the B and T quarks, which they now call 'bottom' and 'top'. Apparently the scientific community thought the initial naming was too ambiguous, which is interesting in itself. But the possibility that this particular pair of quarks may have a connectivity with what we actually perceive as 'beauty' and 'truth' can't really escape the definition of Possibilities, because the chances are that they of all the three quark pairings may resonate most closely with the consciousness field.
With this in mind, the article here bears witness to an uneasy standoff between the scientist and the philosopher, a generic position which has lost no ground on either side since their conversation happened. I see plenty of reference to quantum principles in esoteric scripts and plenty of reference to 'knowing' (and other hints at sentience from the scientific ones. There is a bridge waiting, maybe even wanting, to be forged and when enough people from either side decide to break that wall down, the resultant revolution will make the Berlin Wall look like a garden fence.
If you read this, and you're tempted to move a brick, please share this post with others. Thanx.
