A Quote by Ken Wilber on mysticism, physics, physicists, and mystics
Notice [in Quantum Questions] I was not saying that modern physics itself supports or proves a mystical worldview. I was saying the physicists themselves were mystics, and not that their discipline was a mystical or somehow spiritual endeavor resulting in a religious worldview. In other words, I disagreed entirely with books such as The Tao of Physics and The Dancing Wu Li Masters, which claimed that modern physics supported or even proved Eastern mysticism. This is a colossal error. Physics is a limited, finite, relative, and partial endeavor, dealing with a very limited aspect of reality. It does not, for example, deal with biological, psychological, economic, literary, or historical truths; whereas mysticism deals with all of that, which the Whole. To say physics proves mysticism is like saying the tale proves the dog.
