  • Possible implications for physicalism

    You might find this video illuminating. Hoffman points out that a growing number of physicists now take the view that spacetime isn’t fundamental. This may ultimately have implications for physicalism, in that subsequent theories, perhaps within the field of quantum gravity, may be incompatible with materialism. (This is one reason why, in the comment you quoted, I used the qualification “physicalism, as it currently stands”.)<div>

    <div>Hoffman weaves several other tantalising threads of thought throughout, interspersed with some rather knowing anecdotes.</div>


    If you find Hoffman an amiable intellect, and I certainly do, you may also enjoy this next video, in which he discusses a sense in which (quantum) physics and meditation overlap.
