I liked this guy. He said something that we should all bear in mind:
I'm not sure whether there is much " greater meaning" in Russell's message and that may leave some wanting more. With that in mind I'm surprised Alex didn't push him on NDEs/reincarnation etc (maybe that just didn't make the edit).
Really? This quote surprised me and may explain why Alex is so frustrated with mainstream science; he is looking for meaning where he is the least likely to find it.
Peter Russell said:
... And just another point, in coming back to science, I think science is studying the phenomenal world, what it calls the material world. And I would say the spiritual traditions are studying experience itself, the arising of experience. And the two are different fields. I don’t see any conflict between science and spirituality. Only when you think the spiritual is talking about the material world then there is conflict.
All we ever wanted from science was who are we and why are we here
