Dr. Ian Thompson,
Nuclear Physicist and Swedenborgian Author
 Many of us sense there is something real beyond the scope of naturalistic science. But what? Must mental and religious lives always remain a mystery and never become part of scientific knowledge? Can theism ever be connected with science? This course will explain a new rational approach to combining science and theism, using ideas from Emanuel Swedenborg. It presents theism as a scientific theory, explaining its basic postulates, consequences and predictions as simply as possible and without paradox. Dr Thompson will show how a following of core postulates of theism leads to novel and useful predictions about the psychology of minds and the physics of materials which should appear in the universe. Students will see if those predictions agree with the world as they observe it, both externally in nature and internally in our minds. In fact, they mesh surprisingly well with the structure of reality already revealed by modern quantum field theory and by theories of developmental stages in human minds. The result is a promising new rational theory encompassing theology, psychology and physics.
