I recently read the book - The Dancing Wu Li Masters. The book explains the path breaking discoveries of Quantum Physics over the 20th century (the book ends in 1982). What is interesting from the viewpoint of Eastern Philosophy is that many of the conclusions reached by Modern physics regardig the nature of the world are the same as what Eastern philosophies have been saying though the ages.
Visit the website http://www.eastern-philosophy-and-meditation.com/ and sign up for the newsletter which explains these conclusions in greater detail. Better still read the book - The Dancing Wu Li Masters by Gary Zukhav. It is a book of popular science meant for laymen and very interesting. Shorn of mathematics Physics becomes pure enchantment - as the blurb to the book says. This is a book well worth reading
