Deepak Chopra Talks About the Higgs Boson at Wanderlust Festival

The “God Particle” is still circulating heavily in the news, so here is a follow-up to our first video.

All particles, including the Higgs Boson particle, which I refer to as the “Anglo-Indian particle” (watch the video to find out why),  are a possibility field until measured. That possibility field, in my view, is consciousness itself. Self interacts and produces observation, that which is observed. Science is based on a subject-object split — empirical facts, that’s how we do science. But the split is an artificial one. We are one.

You are the ultimate reality. The ground of your being is the ground of the universe. So go past the sacred passages — the dark alleys and ghost-filled attics of your mind — go beyond your ego, and you end up with the self of the universe. That is yoga.

The Higgs Boson is a fascinating discovery that moves us in the direction of understanding what we call the unified field theory. What is that field? It is the field that interacts with itself and creates many observers,  many objects of observations… and they all come from that source. In the words of Lord Krishna, “I am the field and the knower of the field.”


  1. its not the "god particle."

    that's just a catchphrase to attract media attention.

    deepak you are perhaps playing too fast and loose when you try and overlap vedantic idealism with particle physics.

    though i am a big fan of both – it is a massive stretch to try and connect samadhi and the higgs boson.

    unified field theory is also not a proof of any religious or pseudoscience idea you want to tack onto it!

    the only reason i point this out is that i think many who hear and read you will hear about these physics ideas from you for the first time and will take you at your word that they have the kinds of spiritual implications you suggest.

    most people don't even understand what the higgs boson is, they probably also are not clear on the details of vedantic idealism either….. the common new age tendency to say – particle physics concept "x" is weird and mysterious, mystical assertion "y" is weird and mysterious therefore they are identical is a fallacy i think we should stop perpetuating.

  2. The phrase "god particle" was what a journalist mis-heard when a physicist referred to it as "that god-damned particle" because of it's illusiveness!

    This is more pablum from the purveyor of nonsense. "It is the field that interacts with itself" sounds a lot like masturbation!
