I am not a scientist, but science, particularly quantum physics, intrigues me. Recently I came upon a book entitled Entangled Minds by Dean Radin, a senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences in Petaluma, California, which advances the thesis that the concept of entanglement in quantum theory may explain psychic faculties and parapsychological phenomena. I have become sufficiently emboldened to suggest that this concept might well apply to a well-known and long accepted principle in numerous spiritual traditions—the law of karma.  Radin does point out early in his book that there are “two flavors of stupidity: Just Plain Stupid and Mentally Deficient.” To avoid being categorized under one or other of those two “flavors,” I propose to tread cautiously on some unexplored aspects of karma, raising more questions than I intend to answer in any definitive manner.

1897 - Besant, the Founder/President of the Theosophical Society delivers the fourth in a series of manuals designed to meet public demand for a simple exposition of Theosophical teachings with the hope that it will lead the reader to penetrate more deeply into its philosophy, its science and its religion. This fascinating book deals with the subject of Karma.

Topics include:

Karma is a law of spiritual dynamics that can be related to every act in daily life. ''Karma'' is a Sanskrit word, meaning action and implies the entire cycle of cause and effect. The law refers particularly to the accumulation of effects brought about by causes set in motion through our attitudes and actions in the past, and includes the new causes initiated in the present that will result in future effects.

Physics demonstrates that no particle of energy can be emitted without a natural result following. A stone tossed into the air returns to earth as a result of the law of gravity. Similarly, in life, as we bring together actions, thoughts and feelings, the result may follow at once or be postponed in accordance with obscure factors. All thought, desire and action disturb, in some measure, the equilibrium through a process of readjustment. The operation of this law is as truly a moral law as it is a physical law and can be directly observed as such.
