A new Discussion Group at ‘Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institute’

To celebrate renowned physicist and Nobel Laureate, Sir Roger Penrose’s talk ‘Fashion, Faith and Fantasy, in the new Physics of the Universe,’ Monday November 26th , at Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institute, a new branch of the very successful organisation, ‘The Scientific and Medical Network’ (of which he is a member) is to be launched.

This is an international forum that began in 1973 and brings together a wide variety of professionals, i.e. scientists, doctors, philosophers, psychologists, engineers and complementary practitioners for critical open-minded discussion of ideas that go beyond reductionist science and its materialistic approach.

Its aim is to promote evidence based enquiry of concepts that attempt to expand the frontiers of science, consciousness and spirituality, in order to further the understanding of reality.

Other members include, Deepak Chopra, Dr Rupert Sheldrake, Prof. Stuart Hamerhoff, Prof. Chris Clark, Dr Peter Fenwick and Ravi Ravindra. There is also access to much archive materiel by such people as the late David Bohm FRS. The monthly meetings will take place at B.R.L.S.I. and will take the form of discussion groups and presentations that explore this fascinating area of research.
