Making Space and Time for God: Can the Gulf between Science and Spirituality be Bridged?
Prof Bernard Carr

Historically science and religion have often been opposed and it is sometimes thought that the advances of science have driven the inexorable retreat of religion. However, there is one glaring omission in the triumph of science - any reference to mind and consciousness - and some future paradigm of physics may well accommodate this. This talk will describe a theory which makes space for spiritual realities and thereby forms a bridge between science and religion.
Bernard is Emeritus Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy at Queen Mary University of London. His area of research is cosmology and he has a long-standing interest in the relationship between science and spirituality and the role of consciousness in physics. His recent books include Universe or Multiverse? and Quantum Black Holes.
