Forty years after Fritjof Capra's The Tao of Physics, we can see unequivocally that the "New Age" revolution in human consciousness never happened. Nevertheless, its vibrations still find resonance with many of those who have rejected traditional religion and say they are "not religious but spiritual."
If confirmed, the recently detected potential ripples from the Big Bang represent an imprint on the cosmic microwave background by gravitational waves. Those gravitational waves are produced through a quantum process, providing, for the first time (again, if confirmed), evidence that gravity is governed by quantum mechanics. This point cannot be overemphasized.
