A quantum jump.

Welcome to the Parallel Universes of
Dr. Fred Alan Wolf AKA
Dr. Quantum*


                Have Brains / Will Travel
                also known as Dr. Quantum.


Author of many books including Taking the Quantum Leap, Parallel Universes, The Dreaming Universe, The Eagle's Quest, The Spiritual Universe, Mind into Matter, Matter into Feeling ,The Yoga of Time Travel: How the Mind Can Defeat Time, and his latest book Dr. Quantum Presents, A Little Book of Big Ideas. .

Fred Alan Wolf is a physicist, writer, and lecturer who earned his Ph.D. in theoretical physics at UCLA in 1963. He continues to write, lecture throughout the world, and conduct research on the relationship of quantum physics to consciousness. He is the National Book Award Winning author of Taking the Quantum Leap. He is a member of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Collegium of Scholars.

Dr. Wolf has taught at the University of London, the University of Paris, the Hahn-Meitner Institute for Nuclear Physics in Berlin, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and San Diego State University in the United States. His work in quantum physics and consciousness is well known through his popular and scientific writing. He is the author of eleven books ( see page 3).

Dr. Wolf's fascination with the world of physics began one afternoon as a child at a local matinee, when the newsreel revealed the awesome power and might of the world's first atomic explosion. This fascination continued, leading Wolf to study mathematics and physics.

In 1963, he received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from UCLA and began researching the field of high atmospheric particle behavior following a nuclear explosion. Wolf's inquiring mind has delved into the relationship between human consciousness, psychology, physiology, the mystical, and the spiritual. His investigations have taken him from intimate discussions with physicist David Bohm to the magical and mysterious jungles of Peru, from master classes with Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman to the high deserts of Mexico, from a significant meeting with Werner Heisenberg to the hot coals of a firewalk.

In academia, Dr. Wolf has challenged minds at San Diego State University, the University of Paris, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the University of London, Birkbeck College, and many other institutions of higher learning. Wolf is best known for his contributions through technical papers and popular books, but he is frequently in demand as a lecturer, keynote speaker, and consultant to industry and the media.

Wolf is well known for his simplification of the new physics and is perhaps best known as the author of Taking the Quantum Leap which, in 1982, was the recipient of the prestigious National Book Award for Science.

Former professor of physics at San Diego State University for twelve years, Dr. Wolf lectures, researches, and teaches worldwide. Dr. Wolf has also appeared as the resident physicist on The Discovery Channel's The Know Zone and on many radio talkshows and television shows across the United States and abroad.

What I'm up to these days.


I've recently completed my latest book published by Hampton Roads/Red Wheel Weiser and due out in the Spring of 2011 or perhaps even sooner. You can see its tentative cover above. In this book we will look at how our understanding of the nature of time, space and matter have changed-even what we mean by these terms-in just the last few decades. It will take us into the world of fundamental particles and how they are actually made from light. Consequently they can appear and disappear, move through time forming loops going forward and backward in time, and twist in space resulting in the appearance of the everyday world of matter and energy. In brief the universe is a light show on a grand scale and God's opening command "Let there be light" now takes on a new meaning: Everything is literally made of light and the reader will learn how and why it is so. The book is written in a popular language style with some basic conceptual math and quantum physics ideas. No one has to calculate anything to grasp the meaning of these ideas. I refer the reader to my earlier books Taking the Quantum Leap and Parallel Universes to see a similar style of writing. The numerous illustrations using cartoon characters where possible to illustrate the ideas presented are scattered through the text. I have found that people who begin to learn about quantum physics after college are usually greatly aided by pictures and drawings especially since our journey into the ingredients of the universe indeed has many loops and twists that can confound the mind. What makes this book different from many others writing about similar topics, is the interest it takes in conceptual understanding of the material, not just an "oh wow gee whiz" book, but a real attempt to explain the deep ideas behind the concepts using simple math concepts and many illustrations and examples. ____________________________________________________ I wish to thank all of the people of Colombia, who made it possible for me to visit with you in Bogota on September, 6th, 2008. I found the people I met with to be sincere, and deep feeling with a healthy concern for others and a desire to improve their lives and the lives of others. I was especially impressed with the deep spiritual values I found, the great humility and grace of those I met, and their desire to learn about quantum physics and consciousness.

Some new great news!!

Look for this now!

Step into the world of physics-but bring your spirituality along. Fred Alan Wolf is a theoretical physicist and firewalker who sees the sacred in everything-and can give you a theorem to prove it. From every angle he blasts the boundary between science and spirit, and can make universal consciousness sound like a logical idea. He may be the first physicist ever to break into pop culture celebrity. In his featured appearance in the movie, What the Bleep Do We Know?, he brought cutting edge quantum theory down to earth, and stirred a cult following by heralding proof of ancient spiritual principles for a mainstream audience. "Mind is not limited or contained within the boundaries of the material world," says Dr. Wolf. "Mind is not in you and in me separately. Mind is universal, escaping time and space. So when ideas pop into existence, it's not just in your mind that they're happening." Heavy stuff? Yes. But "Dr. Quantum" has a disarming way of delivering profound statements with gusto and a generous dose of mischief, so that even if you yawn at the mere mention of an electron, this time you'll want to wake up and come along for the ride.


Want more?

One of the most compelling questions of all time is, do we have a soul? And if we do, what exactly is it? Fred Alan Wolf, well-known resident physicist on Discovery Channel's "No-Zone" program, gives us an answer and a unique definition. He also discusses spirit, space, time, consciousness and the possible origins of the universe. From a physicist who knows scientifically what a miracle our universe really is, we hear reasons to celebrate our very existence, and he reminds us that, "We, who are living in this incredible miracle we call the universe, have to begin to recognize that we are not just in it, we are it."

Unlock Your Hidden Superpowers for Transcending Space and Time Time travel doesn't require a machine with flashing lights, spinning dials, and a warp engine-in fact, you were born with the power to navigate the timestream. Impossible? Not with the help of Dr. Quantum! The renowned "superhero of science" Fred Alan Wolf makes his triumphant return in Dr. Quantum Presents: Do-It-Yourself Time Travel. On this 6 session audio journey down the wormhole of infinite possibility, Dr. Quantum provides you with the physics, insights, and practices you need to expand your power to journey through time and space.
Break Free from the Chains of Linear Time
"It may sound like science fiction," says Fred Alan Wolf, "but time travel is really not as far-fetched as you might think." Learning the basics of time travel does not require training-rather, it calls for un-training from our habit of thinking of time in the "normal," linear way. In a modern age filled with clocks and calendars, we have limited our natural abilities to choose how we traverse time in our lives. With a few simple practices in the "Ancient Art of Cheating Time," Dr. Quantum helps you throw off the shackles of second-by-second clock time to help you vastly enhance the quality of each moment of your life.

But what about leaping into the future, hurtling back into the past, or peering into parallel realities? Fred Alan Wolf teaches you how to access these advanced powers of time travel through mastery of "the Five Fluctuations." Once you become a time-traveling "tachyonaut," you not only learn the skill of slipping the timestream, you also take profound spiritual steps toward achieving liberation from the ego, connecting to the universal consciousness, and overcoming the fear of death.

Using a supercharged solution of cutting-edge science and mystical wisdom, Dr. Quantum provides everything you need to sail the river of time at will instead of being carried along in its current. Team up with the champion of spacetime on Dr. Quantum Presents: Do-It-Yourself Time Travel to unlock the time-warping "superpowers" of your own consciousness.

Cirque du Soleil presents The Mystery of Mystère! A captivating documentary on Mystère, the critically acclaimed theatrical production playing at the Treasure Island in Las Vegas! Meet world renowned anthropologist Philippe Frey, geneticist David Suzuki, physicist Fred Alan Wolf and astrophysicist Trinh Xuan Thuan as they boldly explore The Mystery of Mystère through each of their fascinating and distinctive scientific field of expertise.

I really had fun shooting this earlier in 2007 and meeting the great cast of Cirque.

Still out there now!! 200

In this little book Dr. Quantum has gathered together some precious gems of insight. I must admit I was surprised that I even wrote them. I hadn't realized when I wrote them that they could well stand alone as they do. Read them and I hope laugh and enjoy them. They aren't there to teach you anything (although you might learn a little about you and the universe) but to help you let go of any tight bonds you have created to what you believe is the only reality there is. I hope you begin to see that the universe including you is far greater than any of us can imagine and that you are a remarkable being simply because in the last one million or so years of evolution nature or God has chosen you to appear on the scene. You may feel that you are not worth very much or you may feel you are far better than any of your associates. I caution you that both of these are illusions. I hope that by reading this little book you may gain a better prospective on who you really are. Care to guess?

Still out there now!!
Yes, Dr. Quantum Presents: A User's Guide to Your Universe is still hot and running "out there" and soon to be "in here" (in your heads) when you listen to it!

It's "out there" so now its time to put it "in here" in your minds. Look for the 12 sessions 6-CD album set at wherever you can get audio CDs. It really captures the best of what I can put "out there" because now you can listen and take off into the wild yonder world of quantum reality and have fun doing it too. It's called: Dr Quantum Presents: A User's Guide to Your Universe. Think of it as How Quantum Physics can Change your Life. For more information go to Sounds True webpage: Sounds True.

My book is now out there and doing well. I just found out that my publisher has now gone into its fourth printing and the demand is growing! Look for it in your favorite bookstore or order it on line. I have heard from the U.S. publisher that The Yoga of Time Travel will be published in the following countries, Holland (Dutch Edition), India, Brazil (Portuguese edition), and Spain and Latin America, (Spanish edition). Look for these editions in 2007.

I also have learned that it received the 2004 ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Award in Body, Mind & Spirit. See:

What my book, The Yoga of Time Travel: How the Mind Can Defeat Time
is about.

So what's in this book? Defeating time might seem a strange expression. However to make time travel real, not just a theoretical exercise, will require a way of slipping around the corner, peeking under the screens, so to speak of our usual motion pictures of reality. As the ancient Vedas referred to this as kala-vancana  "time-cheating," we will learn how one can escape the ongoing time-life-illusion of Samsara-the mind itself, which you will find is your own memory in disguise-and cheat time thus travel through time.To the best of my ability I'll explain in very simple language, using metaphors and your own common experiences just what you would experience by traveling through time in a manner counter to the usual "flow." As you see, this isn't an "ordinary" book about time travel (if anything like that can be imagined). There are many books today dealing with the subject and if you go on-line and use your favorite "search engine" you will find many websites devoted to time travel as a theoretical exercise. What makes this book different from all of the rest, you might already have gleaned from the title, is the bringing in of the mind and a means for achieving time travel through use of a mind Yoga--a technique for training the mind to carry out the processes.

Remember look for it in your bookstore. If you don't see it there, ask your bookseller to get it for you!

What Matter into Feeling is about.

In Matter into Feeling we explore:

1. The island of ego we call the body.
2. How dream becomes reality.
3. The wave of feeling.
4. The trickster in memory.
5. The curve of life.
6. Sex and information from the future.
7. The eye of the universe.
8. How possibility becomes persona and soul.
9. The structure of love in the universe.

In bringing mind into matter we had to deal with resistance and the trickster element. Now, similarly, we must deal with the conflicts and resistance we face in our lives as we attempt to make sense of the world, and learn to put up with our material demands, our addictions, our ups and downs, successes and failures. For many of us on the spiritual path, the great work gets trapped here--we live and die never realizing that other phases of transformation are even possible. In other words, we get fooled by our appetites. To make the leap, to realize the remaining phases, requires understanding that the "stuck" life is only a phase, much like a child throwing a tantrum is merely "going through a phase." The movement of matter into feeling is the second phase. And my goal with Matter into Feeling is to help guide you through it.

What Mind into Matter is about.

In Mind into Matter my goal was to show that within your own mind and body laid a majestic story filled with drama, pathos, humor, intelligence, fantasy, and fact. However, this is not the end of the story. Much remains to be done in the "great work." How do we use these tools to change ourselves, might be the question remaining to be answered. Other questions include: How do we realize these transformational forces? How do we live a more creative and fruitful spiritual life? Realization of the new alchemy brings novel forms of the creative transforming forces into play. While the mind to matter transformation deals with primary or archetypal images and how these images become material, the next phase of the great work is the transformation of the newly formed matter into feeling.
