Zen-Brain Reflections

This sequel to the generally learn Zen and the mind keeps James Austin’s explorations into the major interrelationships among Zen Buddhism and mind study. In Zen-Brain Reflections, Austin, a medical neurologist, researcher, and Zen practitioner, examines the evolving mental strategies and mind adjustments linked to the trail of long-range meditative education.

In Search of Schrödinger's Cat: Quantum Physics and Reality

Quantum conception is so surprising that Einstein couldn't convey himself to simply accept it. it's so very important that it offers the basic underpinning of all sleek sciences. with out it, we'd don't have any nuclear energy or nuclear guns, no television, no pcs, no technological know-how of molecular biology, no realizing of DNA, no genetic engineering.

Example text

Pat and I were suddenly on our own. I had to spear a lot of fish for fish markets and restaurants—and play danceband jobs—to help pay the bills. To spear enough fish and make some money I had to become a proficient sharpshooter. Fish markets would not buy fish with spear holes in the middle. They had to be speared in the head. That kind of incentive leads to better marksmanship. Proficiency led to competition, so I entered a few local contests. S. National Spearfishing Contest. The contest was held at West End, Bahamas, and based at the old Jack Tar Resort that has long since been demolished.

That was where I first met the legendary Art Pinder. My prize was the Johnny Weissmuller trophy, named 19 20 Bootstrap Geologist: My Life in Science after the famous swimmer who played Tarzan in the old black-and-white movies. The following year, our team of three—we called ourselves the Miami Skin Divers—won first place in the National Spearfishing Contest off Miami. The team consisted of Paul Damman, Don Delmonico, and me. Our prize was the giant Owen Churchill Cup and other goodies. Owen Churchill was the inventor and producer of the first commercially available swim fins in the United States.

The laboratory on Virginia Key was simply called the UM Marine Lab, but some years later it would become the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. My boss at the Virginia Key lab was a chemist named Sigmund Miller. Sig, as we called him, worked on a Navy-sponsored project. Military contracts were common and the mainstay of the research effort. The Cold War was on, and the Navy put a lot of money into marine research. We were to study and, hopefully, discover ways to kill barnacles and other nasty critters that eat boats and pilings.
