The Mystical Positivist is now a weekly radio show on KOWS-LP 107.3 FM, Occidental, CA. Listen live on Saturday evenings from 4:00 - 6:00pm, PST, via the web at KOWS Live Stream.
This week's podcast features:
- A conversation in the studio with with Karl Young, Ph.D, on the history of the materialist perspective in scientific inquiry, and the limitations that strict material realism imposes. We discuss how a broader empirical perspective on science avoids a necessary commitment to a realist interpretation of the material entities that serve as the basis for current scientific models. Such an approach opens the doors to a genuine scientific inquiry into matters of consciousness and spirit. A native of San Francisco, Karl Young received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of California, Santa Cruz. He worked as a research physicist at the Stanford Linear Accelerator and was an assistant adjunct professor at the University of California, San Francisco. His research focuses include the study and simulation of complex systems, applied information theory, image informatics, statistical image processing, parallel processing, and magnetic resonance physics. Karl is an accomplished jazz musician, as well as an avid student of the Shakuhachi or Japanese Bamboo Flute, and has studied intensively with such notable teachers as Kaoru Kakizakai and Riley Lee. In addition, Karl has maintained a longstanding interest and practice in Zen Buddhist Meditation.
