Jack Sarfatti

Born Sep 14, 1939

Jack Sarfatti is an American theoretical physicist specializing in the relationship between quantum physics and consciousness. Working largely outside academia, he argues that mind may be crucial to the structure of matter, that retrocausality may be possible, and that physics—which he calls the "Conceptual Art of the late 20th Century"—has replaced philosophy as the unifying force between science and art.… Read More
