We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark;
the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
This course is an exploration of the relationship of mind to matter. Two main types of evidence are considered: (1) the role of mind in health and other physical conditions; (2) the role of mind in quantum physics experiments. Lectures, discussion, and brief readings. No previous knowledge of physics is required.
