To believe that our abstract concepts of separate ‘things’ and ‘events’ are realities of nature is an illusion.

Division is, of course, useful and necessary to cope with our everyday environment, but it is not a fundamental feature of reality. It is an abstraction devised by our discriminating and categorizing intellect.
Hindus and Buddhists tell us that this illusion is based on avidya, or ignorance, produced by a mind under the spel of maya.
The principal aim of the Eastern mystical traditions is therefore to readjust the mind by centering and quietening it through meditation.
The Sanskrit term for meditation-samadhi-means literally ‘mental equilibrium’. It refers to the balanced and tranquil state of mind in which the basic unity of the universe is experienced
The basic oneness of the universe is not only the central characteristic of the mystical experience, but is also one of the most important revelations of modern physics.
The unity of all things and events will be a recurring theme throughout our comparison of modern physics and Eastern philosophy.
As we study the various models of subatomic physics we shall see that [...] constituents of matter and the basic phenomena
involving them are all interconnected, interrelated and inter-dependent; that they cannot be understood as isolated entities,
but only as integrated parts of the whole.
