Dianne Seaman explores possible relationships between astrology, the new physics of quanta and space-time, past-life phenomena, and transpersonal experiences. As she notes in her article, her explorations raise more questions than can be answered, but her findings are provocative and she links these areas together thoughtfully.
Astrology, quantum physics and past-life phenomena are all complex subjects in and of themselves. Here I am attempting to show links among all three and how a more thorough understanding of each can be gained from exploring the other two – an even more complex undertaking. I am coming to realize that this is a lifelong project, and as I delve deeper into these matters, more questions are raised than answered.
Astrology is a symbolic language of energy and cyclical time. The past-life phenomenon addresses a subjective experience of simultaneous (non-linear) time. According to Dr. Avshalom Elitzer, a physics professor at Tel Aviv University, time has always been the big quandary for classical physicists (Elitzer, 1996). Elitzer thinks there is a missing piece somewhere, and we need to turn to intuition and our subjective experiences to provide more information about this phenomenon of time. He echoes Einstein, who said, “Even space and time are forms of intuition.” What seems needed is not more traditional scientific inquiry, but a new level from which to view this conundrum of time.
