Abstract : The notion of Non-Locality (NL) in physics has great epistemological implications and impact on the perceptive of Reality. Numerous counter intuitive experimental results that clearly violate Bell's inequality have prompted several physicists to believe in 'mysterious' non-local correlations particularly in quantum systems of EPR type. Not commenting much on whether NL is true or not, our contention is that NL, in general, leads to the concept of holistic universe and further to a global concept of 'Consciousness-Centered-Cosmos' (CCC) as almost inevitable rational outcome. These suggestions though ostensibly unorthodox, are rather within rational and legitimate frame work of science. Our reasoning is quite distinct from the erstwhile doctrine of the role of consciousness in the measurement problem and state vector reduction although the latter may add further credence to the our contention. We address particularly the implications NL and discuss certain related aspects of new quantum world view in general. The less recognized association of the principles of uncertainty with locality, causality, the arrow of time and reality are brought out. Perhaps these underpinnings are much less appreciated than necessary.
