内容介绍:

The connection between Daoism and science is well known, however, there is much room for exploration, notably with regard to Daoist practices of personal cultivation and recent developments in physics, biology, epigenetics, and neuroscience. In this paper, a short excerpt of my forthcoming book, Science and the Dao, I discuss the Daoist activation of star energy in the light of modern cosmology and astrophysics; the practice of visualizing the organs of the body with colors and deities in the understanding of cell biology and epigenetics; as well as the ultimate goal of immortality in relation to magnetoelectric and quantum physics. Overall, science bears out traditional claims, opening a new and enhanced level of translation—of Daoism into Western science as well as of theory into practice.
