the end of quantum reality

The End of Quantum Reality

Mathematician/philosopher/physicist extraordinaire Wolfgang Smith has chosen to emerge now, at the summit of his life’s work, in order to prepare a new generation for what he calls “a singular moment in history.”  Is the so-called “quantum reality problem” actually the sign that a four-century arc of human history — what René Guénon has called “the reign of quantity” — is reaching its end?

The End of Quantum Reality — which also features Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Olavo de Carvalho, and narrator Richard DeLano — is being brought to you by the creative team behind The Principle  (2014).  Watch our first trailer for a film designed to blow the doors off the quantum reality problem and signal the end of the Reign of Quantity.

Synopsis

Almost one hundred years ago, the project to reduce the world to mathematical physics failed suddenly and completely: “One of the best-kept secrets of science,” physicist Nick Herbert writes, “is that physicists have lost their grip on reality.” The world, we are now told, emerges spontaneously, out of “nothing,” and constitutes a “multiverse,” where “anything that can happen, will — and it will happen an infinite number of times.”

Legendary reclusive genius Wolfgang Smith demonstrates on shockingly obvious grounds the dead end at which physics has arrived, and how we can “return, at last, to the real world.”

The End of Quantum Reality  introduces this extraordinary man to a contemporary audience which has, perhaps, never encountered a true philos-sophia, one as intimately at ease with the rigors of quantum physics as with the greatest schools of human wisdom.

  • “Wolfgang Smith broaches a vast range of subjects with a mastery that bespeaks an immense culture… It would be hard to exaggerate the importance of [his] work.”
    Jean Borella, ​​​​​​​Professor of Philosophy, ​​​​​​​University of Nancy, France
  • “Here is that rare person who is equally at home with Eckhart and Einstein, Heraclitus and Heisenberg!”
    Harry Oldmeadow, ​​​​​​​Professor of Philosophy, ​​​​​​​La Trobe University, Australia
  • “Wolfgang Smith is as important a thinker as our times boast.”
    Huston Smith, Professor of Philosophy, M.I.T., and author of The World’s Religions

Wolfgang Smith

Wolfgang Smith graduated from Cornell University at the age of eighteen with majors in physics, philosophy, and mathematics. He received his master's degree in theoretical physics from Purdue University and was subsequently employed at Bell Aircraft Corporation as an aerodynamicist. His pioneering work on the effect of diffusion fields, published during that period, presented a theoretical solution to the re-entry problem for space flight. After taking his Ph.D. in mathematics from Columbia University, Smith held faculty positions at M.I.T., U.C.L.A., and Oregon State University. He is well known in traditionalist circles through his books, which include Cosmos and Transcendence, The Wisdom of Ancient Cosmology, and The Quantum Enigma: Finding the Hidden Key. As a scientist attracted since his youth to the great metaphysical schools, his thought represents a unique encounter between contemporary science and traditional philosophy.

Rick DeLano, Producer/Writer/Narrator

After twenty years as a session musician and producer in Hollywood, Rick DeLano wrote and produced THE PRINCIPLE, which remains the first and only feature-length documentary examination of the Copernican cosmological principle. He is now producing and narrating THE END OF QUANTUM REALITY for release in early 2020.

Katheryne KTEE Thomas, Director/Co-Producer/Co-Editor

A graduate of the Academy of Art University with an MFA in Motion Pictures and Television, Katheryne has amassed a vast portfolio of work, including the 2014 documentary, THE PRINCIPLE. She has over 15 years in mass media integration, as a new media content producer, and brand/promotions manager. She was the production manager for the UPN affiliate (now the CW) in South Georgia. Since 2010, she has been the Owner / CEO of In Ohm Entertainment, a multimedia company specializing in film production and brand promotions. She has produced numerous music videos, documentary films, docu-series, web series and events for companies such as MTV, VH1, Fuse, Interscope, Universal, Capitol Records, and Warner Bros.

Nicole Bakirtjy, Co-Editor

Nicole started making films as a young child armed with a camcorder. She migrated from Chicago to Hollywood to follow her filmmaking passion, and after working in a variety of production positions, found her movie-making sweet spot in the editing room on the post-production side of things.

John Trevor Berger, Philosophical Outreach

A writer and musician from Atlanta, John Trevor Berger currently serves as Director of Philosophical Outreach for the Initiative. He is a graduate of Georgia State University, where he studied Philosophy, English Literature, and Art History. He is also a contributing editor at The Disinterested Spectator, an online journal of philosophical research and cultural criticism.
