04:38 Rupert Sheldrake: quot;The primary metaphor is the magnetic field, that’s what gives you the sense of a field. But if you look at the type of physics that would be appropriate for describing these fields it would not be magnitism, it’s quantum field theory.
07:23 Ralph Abraham:“I’m extremely suspicious of the application of quantum mechanical concepts in the arena of psychology, consciousness, sociology, and so on. To me that’s much fuzzier than the face on Mars.”
12:28 Terence McKenna: “Part of the problem is that physical models break down when prosecuted to quantum mechanical levels.”
21:15 Ralph begins his explanation of the physics of the nimbus, otherwise known as a halo.
30:47 Terence: “The more successful psychoanalytic theories, it seems to me, are the least mathmatically driven, and depend really on this mysterious business that we call the gifted therapist.”
