Science, Religion and Mysticism: What Great Physicists Say by Michael Green

This book is a collection of the finest mystical writings of the great physicists of the 20th Century. They are Max Planck, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, Erwin Schrödinger, Wolfgang Pauli, James Jeans, Arthur Eddington, Eugene Wigner, David Bohm, and Freeman Dyson. The essays are written in nontechnical language and will be of absorbing interest to a wide range of readers. 

Science enhances the moral values of life because it furthers a love of truth and reverence—love of truth displaying itself in the constant endeavor to arrive at a more exact knowledge of the world of mind and matter around us, and reverence, because every advance in knowledge brings us face to face with the mystery of our own being. — Max Planck

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. He who knows it not and can no longer wonder, no longer feel amazement, is as good as dead, a snuffed-out candle. It was the experience of mystery–even if mixed with fear–that engendered religion. A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which are only accessible to our reason in their most elementary forms–it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man. — Albert Einstein

Religion uses language in quite a different way from science; it is more closely related to the language of poetry. True we are inclined to think that science deals with information about objective facts, and poetry with subjective feelings… The fact that religions through the ages have spoken in images, parables and paradoxes means simply that there are no other ways of grasping the reality to which they refer. But that does not mean that it is not a genuine reality. And splitting this reality into objective and subjective sides won’t get us very far. That is why I consider those developments in physics during the last decades, which have shown how problematic such conceptions as ‘objective’ and ‘subjective’, are a great liberation of thought. — Niels Bohr

At one extreme is the idea of an objective world, pursuing its regular course in space and time, independently of any kind of observing subject; this has been the guiding image of modern science. At the other extreme is the idea of a subject, mystically experiencing the unity of the world and no longer confronted by an object or by any objective world; this has been the guiding image of Asian mysticism. Our thinking moves somewhere in the middle, between these two limiting conceptions; we should maintain the tension resulting from these two opposites. — Werner Heisenberg

The scientific picture of the real world around me is very deficient. It gives a lot of factual information, puts all our experience in a magnificently consistent order, but it is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near to our heart and that really matters to us. It cannot tell us a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet, physical pain and physical delight; it knows nothing of beautiful and ugly, good or bad, God and eternity. — Erwin Schrödinger

From an inner center, the mind seems to move outward in a sort of extraversion into the physical world, in which all happenings are assumed to be automatic, so that the spirit serenely encompasses this physical world, as it were, with its Ideas… This mysticism is so lucid that it sees out beyond many obscurities, which we moderns dare not and cannot do. — Wolfgang Pauli

The Great Blizzard of 1978: A Trucker’s Story by Butch Richards

In January of 1978, a blizzard tore across the Ohio Valley and Great Lake regions. Some call it the Storm of the Century, and others, the White Hurricane. This is a true short story of how an Ohio truck driver survived the storm on I-75 in the state of Ohio, in a blizzard with 50 to 100 mph winds and driving snow. A storm fierce enough to take 51 or more lives in the Ohio area alone. This is what happened to this driver, and all that were with him, with hundreds of vehicles frozen to the highways, unable to move, all counting on each other for survival.

Also mentioned are the many different ways of ingesting, where you can purchase legally, and what to be aware of when choosing.
