Tom Campbell has appeared on numerous science and spirituality channels and podcasts to talk about the My Big TOE model of reality. He has also had some stimulating discussions with other scientists and thinkers who, each from their own perspective, have also arrived at the conclusion that consciousness is fundamental to reality.

Conversations with Scientists

Prof. Donald D. Hoffman, Ph.D., University of Irvine, California

Donald Hoffman is a professor emeritus in the Department of Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, Irvine, with joint appointments in the Department of Philosophy, the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science, and the School of Computer Science. Donald studies consciousness, visual perception and evolutionary psychology using mathematical models and psychophysical experiments. In his 2019 book “The Case Against Reality”, Donald argues that evolution has shaped living organisms such that they do not necessarily perceive the external world as it is. This “interface theory of perception” led Donald to a metaphysical view he calls “conscious realism”, which holds that consciousness is the primary reality from which the physical world emerges.

Dean Radin, Ph.D., Chief Scientist, Institute of Noetic Science (IONS)

Dean Radin, MS, PhD, is Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Science (IONS) and Associated Distinguished Professor of Integral and Transpersonal Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). With 140+ articles published in peer-reviewed academic journals in physics, psychology and neuroscience, Dean has gathered highly statistically significant scientific evidence that a whole range of paranormal phenomena do exist.

Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., Stem Cell Biologist

Bruce focused his early work on the molecular mechanisms controlling cell behavior. His research at Stanford, between 1987 and 1992, revealed that the cell environment, which operated via the cell membrane, controlled the behavior and physiology of the cell, turning genes on and off. This discovery ran counter to the established scientific view that life is controlled by genes, and gave rise to one of today’s most important fields of study: the science of epigenetics. Epigenetics researches how the cell environment controls cell functioning. As Bruce discovered, the cell environment is highly susceptible to be influenced by our thoughts and emotions, revealing that consciousness is in no small part responsible for our biological functioning.

Conversations with Other Thinkers

Iain McGilchrist, Ph.D.

Iain McGilchrist is a psychiatrist, neuroscience researcher, philosopher and literary scholar. In 2009 he rose to worldwide fame with his bestselling book “The Master and His Emissary”, in which he provided scientific evidence that the left and right brain hemispheres represent two fundamentally different ways of experiencing the world. Although My Big TOE posits that all cognitive processes take place within consciousness, not the brain, it draws on the “left brain / right brain” metaphor to illustrate the difference between an intellectual-analytic and an intuitive-holistic way of approaching the world.

Stephan A. Schwartz

Scientist, futurist, award-winning author of both fiction and nonfiction Stephan A. Schwartz is a Distinguished Associated Scholar of the California Institute for Human Science, Distinguished Consulting Faculty Saybrook, University, and a BIAL Foundation Fellow. He is a columnist for the journal Explore, and editor of the daily web publication in both of which he covers trends that are affecting the future. For over 40 years, as an experimentalist, he has been studying the nature of consciousness. Schwartz is part of the small group that founded modern Remote Viewing research and is the principal researcher studying the use of Remote Viewing in anthropology and archaeology.

Bernardo Kastrup, Ph.D.

Bernardo has earned Ph.D. degrees in both computer science and philosophy. A firm opponent of reductionist materialism, Bernardo has developed a metaphysical view he calls “analytic idealism”. Like My Big TOE, it holds that consciousness is the fundamental substrate of reality. The two models slightly differ in the details, though, some of which Tom and Bernardo discuss in this conversation.

Rupert Spira

Rupert Spira is a spritual teacher who trained in the classical system of Advaita, or non-duality. Rupert summarizes one of the core insights of his teachings as follows: “The greatest discovery in life is that our essential nature does not share the limits or the destiny of the body and mind.”
