There is no law in Physics which says that matter is the sole basis of all that exists. As a matter of fact, Quantum Mechanics (of which classical Physics is an approximation) does not even postulate the existence of matter: it merely postulates the probability of the existence of matter. That does not explain the experimental fact that matter exists in reality. The author quotes an existing hypothesis that an entity independent of matter (called Universal Consciousness) changes the probability of matter into the existence of matter. When this hypothesis is added to the laws of Physics it removes some anomalies in Physics and leads to the clarification of other anomalies in Biology. The present malaise in society is due to a contradiction between what modern materialistic social sciences teach and what individuals find natural and acceptable. The acceptance of the new paradigm facilitates the development of social theories which accept social compassion and ecological balance as their basis.
