Ms. Tippett's interviews with scientists are generally excellent. This one, with Arthur Zajonc, was no exception. Where she tends to err (and did so 'big time' with Mario Livio, to his audible discomfort) is presing these folks to come up with a definition for the word "god".

Since there is no actual delineation between the "physical world" and "consciousness" (the latter merely an identified and named energy accretion), Ms. T. would fare better by simply bouncing Nishida Kitaro's wonderful definition off them: "We call the foundation of the universe God."
