In the Reykjavik Grapevine, www.grapevine.is (dated 9.5.2009), the journalist Haukur S Magnusson interviewed the American film director David Lynch. Mr. Lynch said the following: (Begin quote.) It is such an interesting time, because quantum physics, for instance, has now discovered and verified the existence of the unified field at the base of all matter and mind – at the base of anything that is a thing. This unified field is the same field that one experiences when transcending. Quantum psychics says that everything that is a thing has emerged from this field of unity in a process they call "spontaneous sequential symmetry breaking." Ancient Vedic science – the science of consciousness – has always known about this unified field. And Vedic science knows precisely the numerous steps consciousness goes through from the unmanifest level of unity to all levels of manifestation. It is so great to see that with each step forward modern science takes, it verifies the ancient Vedic science. (End quote.) MY QUESTIONS: Is the first sentence correct ? Do physicists actually agree that (1) a unified field has been discovered, and (2) it is the basis of all matter ? If so, can you cite publications on this point, which are understandable to the educated non-physicist ? Thank you.
