《Opening Remarks》
For many ages, in the name of science, mankind has been exploring this familiar as well as strange world. Scientific development is like reaching the peak of a mountain; the ultimate truth of the universe is at the mountain top. Those who believe science and Buddhism have little in common may not know that 2,500 years ago, the Buddha already explained the modern theory of quantum mechanics with “existence emerges from emptiness”. Furthermore, contemporary physics is able to interpret the meaning of this passage from the Heart Sutra, “form is emptiness and emptiness is form”. It turns out that, in essence, Buddhadharma and science are closely related and in harmony with each other. The Buddha has already reached the mountain top, and is waiting for science to discover the ultimate truth.

What kind of marvelous sparks will Buddhadharma and science ignite? Let’s let Prof. Chu Shih-I, a scientist with a Buddhist mind, take you through it.
