As a member of Tibetan Scientific Society, I had the great privilege to attend the dialogue between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and a group of scientists on the topic of “Quantum Effects” at Dharamshala from 1-3 November, 2018. As a working scientist, I recognized the importance of this meeting that explored the points of convergence between Quantum Physics and Buddhist Philosophy. I will share, through this letter, my experience as an 'objective' observer.

Up until sometime ago it was believed and taught in medical schools that once connections in the brain are set in the fetus or in early infancy there is nothing much that can be done to change these in an adult brain. That is the reason cited for the little recovery of function when there is damage to the nervous system and the notorious difficulty in treating the diseases of the brain. But this cross wiring phenomenon unveiled by Dr. Ramachandran and his team at UCSD flatly contradicts this. They have shown through their research that the even an adult human brain is capable for immense ‘plasticity’ or malleability. The brain can change.


As Niels Bohr, one of the greatest physicists to have lived in the twentieth century, puts it, the relation between the observer and the observed lies at the heart of quantum mechanics. The uncertainty principle as formulated by Werner Heisenberg, puts a fundamental limit to the certainty with which we can ‘know’ about certain aspects of a system.
