who find this guys perspective and analysis interesting, I would also recommend checking out another scientist called Rupert Sheldrake, if you haven't heard of him already.
His expertise is in the field of biology, but his investigations have lead him to the boundaries where science meets metaphysics. His approach and methodology is as intelligent and rational as it gets, and he explains it all in terms which the layman can understand. He has some amazing presentations on YouTube and is well worth a listen to.
