The Akashic Experience: Science and the Cosmic Memory Field - Ervin Laszlo 2009

Amazon Synopsis: Firsthand testimonies by 20 leaders in culture and science of their interactions with the Akashic field

  • Provides important evidence for the authenticity of nonmaterial contact that human beings have with each other and with the cosmos
  • Demonstrates that the increasing frequency and intensity of these experiences is evidence of a widespread spiritual resurgence
  • Includes contributions by Alex Grey, Stanislav Grof, Stanley Krippner, Swami Kriyananda, Edgar Mitchell, and others

Knowing or feeling that we are all connected to each other and to the cosmos by more than our eyes and ears is not a new notion but one as old as humanity. Traditional indigenous societies were fully aware of nonmaterial connections and incorporated them into their daily life. The modern world, however, continues to dismiss and even deny these intangible links--taking as real only that which is physically manifest or proved “scientifically.” Consequently our mainstream culture is spiritually impoverished, and the world we live in has become disenchanted.

In The Akashic Experience, 20 leading authorities in fields such as psychiatry, physics, philosophy, anthropology, natural healing, near death experience, and spirituality offer firsthand accounts of interactions with a cosmic memory field that can transmit information to people without having to go through the senses. Their experiences with the Akashic field are now validated and supported by evidence from cutting-edge sciences that shows that there is a cosmic memory field that contains all information--past, present, and future. The increasing frequency and intensity of these Akashic experiences are an integral part of a large-scale spiritual resurgence and evolution of human consciousness that is under way today.


A Little Book of Coincidence - John Martineau 2002

Amazon Synopsis: A most unusual guide to the solar system, A Little Book of Coincidence suggests that there may be fundamental relationships between space, time, and life that have not yet been fully understood. From the observations of Ptolemy and Kepler to the Harmony of the Spheres and the hidden structure of the solar system, John Martineau reveals the exquisite orbital patterns of the planets and the mathematical relationships that govern them.

A table shows the relative measurements of each planet in eighteen categories, and three pages show the beautiful dance patterns of thirty six pairs of planets and moons.


A New Reality: A Wake Up Call To Life's Mysteries - A.J. Aaron 2008

Amazon Synopsis: Meet A.J. Aaron, the plant manager of a Fortune 500 manufacturing plant. He is a 40 year old businessman educated in one of the most logically-driven professions - Mechanical Engineering, but has an opening to many unexplained energies and experiences that challenge his every belief. With the help of several strangers, A.J. changes his life and his outlook on everything he believes true. One stranger is healed of Multiple Sclerosis as a result of her paranormal connectedness to A.J. Others teach him the power of intention and how to tap into the energy of the universe. He learns how the principles of Quantum Physics may explain this new reality, thus reaffirms his sanity, and helps him realize how much more there is to life than previously gleaned from his narrow point of view. A.J. Aaron shares his story with millions of readers to help them see what is true and right. Read this with an open mind and know that you are part of a vast universe that is welcoming you with open arms.

 

The Audible Life Stream: Ancient Secret of Dying While Living - Alistair Conwell 2010

Amazon Synopsis: The Audible Life Stream, or Primordial Sound Current, is the all-pervasive universal consciousness within everyone. Few realise there is credible evidence indicating that Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, and so on, all perfected the meditative technique of turning their attention inwards, thereby merging with the Audible Life Stream, to become adepts of dying while living. This is the first book to provide convincing evidence of the Audible Life Stream and emphasize the importance of it to every human being, since none of us can escape the clutches of the Lord of Death.

This unique book provides evidence of the Audible Life Stream from a variety of sources, including, testimonials of near-death experiences and out-of-body experiences from people in USA, UK and Australia; excerpts from major religious texts; simply explained quantum physics principles; and independent anecdotes from the increasingly popular field of sound/music therapy.


Cosmic Coincidences - John Gribbin & Martin J. Rees 1991

Amazon Synopsis: What happened "in the beginning", 15 billion years ago? Is the universe only one of its kind or are there others? Is it just a coincidence that life evolved on Earth? This book explores the chain of cosmic events that led to intelligent life on Earth. Scientists cannot explain the distribution of galaxies, and the voids between them, without concluding that at least 90% of the universe consists of so-called "dark matter".

The authors here aim to provide a readable account of the leading theories and latest advances in understanding the nature of dark matter, the controlling force in the dynamics structure and the eventual fate of the universe. John Gribbin's previous books include "The Hole in the Sky" and "Hothouse Earth".


The Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena 2009

Amazon Synopsis: This myth-shattering book explains the evidence for the veracity of psychic phenomena, uniting the teachings of mystics, the theories of quantum physics, and the latest in high-tech experiments. With painstaking research and deft, engaging prose, Radin dispels the misinformation and superstition that have clouded the understanding of scientists and laypeople alike concerning a host of fascinating oddities. Psychokinesis, remote viewing, prayer, jinxes, and more--all are real, all have been scientifically proven, and the proof is in this book.

Radin draws from his own work at Princeton, Stanford Research Institute, and Fortune 500 companies, as well as his research for the U.S. government, to demonstrate the surprising extent to which the truth of psi has already been tacitly acknowledged and exploited. The Conscious Universe also sifts the data for tantalizing hints of how mind and matter are linked. Finally, Radin takes a bold look ahead, to the inevitable social, economic, academic, and spiritual consequences of the mass realization that mind and matter can influence each other without having physical contact.


Cosmos and Consciousness: Quantum Computers, SuperStrings, Mysticism, C++ Programming, Egypt, Quarks, Mind-Body Problem, Aliens, Linguistics, an - Stephen Blaha 2000

Amazon Synopsis: This First Edition of Cosmos and Consciousness presents a simple idea with potentially profound implications not only for Science but also for Philosophy. It develops a new foundation at both a popular, and a technical level, for current fundamental theories of elementary particles, the Standard Model and SuperString Theory. Both of these theories can be placed on a quantum computer language foundation. The idea: elementary particles such as electrons, quarks and so on can be viewed as the "letters" or symbols of a cosmic alphabet, or cosmic code, in a computer grammar (language). A new view of reality emerges from this perspective: the universe is one "tremendous" word. This new theoretical basis is consistent with all known physical experiments and theory.

Cosmos and Consciousness explores this challenging idea showing how fundamental physics theories can be based on quantum computer languages, and incidentally developing many new features of Quantum Computers. A Quantum Computer is a type of computer that is based on quantum mechanics. One of its most important features is that "computations" take place probabilistically. A quantum computation does not have one result or answer; there is a spectrum of results with each result having a certain quantum probability of being produced by the Quantum Computer. When two particles collide, as they do in particle accelerators, a "particle" Quantum Computer produces a spectrum of possible output particle states - each with its own probability of being produced.

The obvious analogy of "the universe as a word" to religious and philosophical concepts such as the "Word" leads to a comparison of this view with parallel ideas in these disciplines. It brings Science to a startling similarity with the religious concept of the Word - a concept that is not only Christian but is also prominent in Judaism, and was prominent even earlier in the Ancient Egyptian religion 5000 years ago.

The Eagle's Quest: A Physicist Finds the Scientific Truth at the Heart of the Shamanic World - Fred Alan Wolf 1992

From Publishers Weekly: Personal odysseys through shamanic rites lead Wolf to posit links between the Shaman's experience and the "new physics." A captivating, lucid quest for awareness.

 

The Ghost in the Universe: God in Light of Modern Science - Taner Edis 2002

Amazon Synopsis: Is there a God, or a spiritual reality beyond nature? Physicist Taner Edis takes a fresh look at this age-old question, focusing on what we have learned about our world rather than on traditional metaphysical disputes. Emphasizing a search for explanation rather than listing flaws in theistic metaphysics, Edis uses the results of natural science to present a world where complexity, intelligence, and even the sublime heights of religious experience emerge from what is ultimately material and random.

Sympathetically criticizing Muslim and New Age perspectives, as well as Jewish and Christian arguments, Edis argues that a thoroughgoing naturalism leads to a much better explanation of our world. While making it clear that spiritual views have a genuine intellectual appeal, Edis systematically critiques such arguments, contrasting them with stronger naturalistic explanations. Science is central to this naturalistic picture; modern physics, evolutionary biology, and critical history, as well as contemporary psychology and brain sciences, all cast doubt on any spiritual reality.

Bringing together ideas from many disciplines in a style that remains accessible to nonspecialists, and also interesting to scientists and philosophers, Edis provides an informative, in-depth statement of the case for scientific naturalism as the most accurate and powerful description of our world today.

 

Goddess Spirituality for the 21st Century: From Kabbalah to Quantum Physics - Judith Laura 2008

Amazon Synopsis: Goddess Spirituality for the 21st Century presents new ways of deepening the mystical connection with the divine embodied as female. Judith Laura begins by reviewing concepts common to various forms of Goddess spirituality. She then moves into uncharted territory by re-envisioning the metaphysical basis underlying much of Western mysticism.

This is the first book to look at both Jewish Kabbalah and Western Esoteric Qabalah from the point of view of Goddess concepts, and to offer a more gender-balanced, female-affirming re-visioning of the central kabbalistic symbol, the Tree of Life. The book also encourages the incorporation of contemporary science, such as quantum physics, into the symbolism and practice of Goddess spirituality. Though tackling complex subjects, the author offers her explanations in an approach that is easy to understand without being simplistic.

The book also includes rituals and guided meditations to help put these ground-breaking theories into spiritual practice.


The Holographic Universe - Michael Talbot 1992

Amazon Synopsis: Today nearly everyone is familiar with holograms, three-dimensional images projected into space with the aid of a laser. Now, two of the world's most eminent thinkers -- University of London physicists David Bohm, a former protege of Einstein's and one of the world's most respected quantum physicists, and Stanford neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, one of the architects of our modern understanding of the brain -- believe that the universe itself may be a giant hologram, quite literally a kind of image or construct created, at least in part, by the human mind.

This remarkable new way of looking at the universe explains now only many of the unsolved puzzles of physics, but also such mysterious occurrences as telepathy, out-of-body and near death experiences, "lucid" dreams, and even religious and mystical experiences such as feelings of cosmic unity and miraculous healings.


The Kabbalah Method: The Bridge Between Science and the Soul, Physics and Fulfillment, Quantum and the Creator - Rav Berg 2005

Amazon Synopsis: A conclusive understanding of reality remains elusive despite millennia-long efforts to uncover it. In The Kabbalah Method, renowned Kabbalist Rav Berg looks to the original spiritual wisdom for answers. This illuminating book, based on decades of study, takes readers on a journey that begins before the universe came into existence, in the infinite, endless realm of total fulfillment and perfection. By understanding the microcosm that is within everyone, says Berg, it is possible to connect with the macrocosm that is the infinite power of the universe, thereby taking that power into oneself and using it to find new meaning in being alive. The Kabbalah Method is addressed to seekers on all levels who want to begin or continue the journey toward deeper understanding. Using the Kabbalistic principles explained here, readers acquire a new sense of self that can transform their inner and outer lives.


The Living Energy Universe – Gary E.R. Schwartz and Linda G.S. Russek 1999

Amazon Synopsis: With The Living Energy Universe, Gary Schwartz and Linda Russek explode the popular notion that science and spirituality are forever fated to be at odds. In fact, the University of Arizona scientists' model of Universal Living Memory is permanently reconfiguring both the scientific and spiritual landscape.

Walking you through their own journey of discovery as well as introducing the research that got them there, Schwartz and Russek present stunning yet sober evidence that:

  • every idea and awareness ever experienced throughout time is still contained in the memory of the universe,
  • consciousness and the soul survive our body"s death,
  • god exists—and is evolving.

Offering new fuel for the faithful, fresh insights for the undecided and experimental evidence for the skeptical, these profound and controversial conclusions will continue to inspire new research into realms once thought beyond the domain of science.


Mysticism and Science - Swami Abhayananda 2007

Amazon Synopsis: There are two types of gnosis or knowing: one taught by mysticism, the other by science. In confining itself to the study of what can be tested or experienced, science fails to cover ultimate causes. Mysticism and Science is a lucid, poetic, impassioned statement by a mystic explaining the current movement in science toward a spiritual world view.

 


Nothing I See Means Anything: Quantum Questions, Quantum Answers - David Parrish MD 2005

Amazon Synopsis: This book, full of lucid, penetrating insights into consciousness, definitively closes the gap between mind, matter, and cosmic intelligence. Parrish elegantly identifies the pathways to highest consciousness—a place we all are but don’t know it.

Starting with a layman’s examination of Freud’s psychology, the author moves seamlessly through existentialism, cognitive systems, quantum physics, and mysticism to arrive at his unique synthesis of them all.


Physics of the Soul: The Quantum Book of Living, Dying, Reincarnation and Immortality - Amit Goswami 2001

Amazon Synopsis: At last, science and the soul shake hands. Writing in a style that is both lucid and charming, mischievous and profound, Dr. Amit Goswami uses the language and concepts of quantum physics to explore and scientifically prove metaphysical theories of reincarnation and immortality.

In Physics of the Soul, Dr. Goswami helps you understand the perplexities of the quantum physics model of reality and the perennial beliefs of spiritual and religious traditions. He shows how they are not only compatible but also provide essential support for each other. The result is a deeply broadened, exciting, and enriched worldview that integrates mind and spirit into science.

One of today's pioneering thinkers in science and spirituality, Dr. Goswami taught physics for 32 years, was a professor of Theoretical Science at the University of Oregon, and is currently senior resident researcher at the world-renowned Institute of Noetic Sciences. He is an advocate of "monistic idealism," the philosophy that defines consciousness, not materiality, as the primary reality.


Quantum Gods: Creation, Chaos, and the Search for Cosmic Consciousness - Victor J. Stenger 2009

Amazon Synopsis: Does quantum mechanics show a connection between the human mind and the cosmos? Are our brains tuned into a "cosmic consciousness" that pervades the universe enabling us to make our own reality? Do quantum mechanics and chaos theory provide a place for God to act in the world without violating natural laws?

Many popular books make such claims and argue that key developments in twentieth-century physics, such as the uncertainty principle and the butterfly effect, support the notion that God or a universal mind acts upon material reality.

Physicist Victor J. Stenger examines these contentions in this carefully reasoned and incisive analysis of popular theories that seek to link spirituality to physics. Throughout the book Stenger alternates his discussions of popular spirituality with a survey of what the findings of twentieth-century physics actually mean. Thus he offers the reader a useful synopsis of contemporary religious ideas as well as basic but sophisticated physics presented in layperson's terms (without equations).

Of particular interest in this book is Stenger's discussion of a new kind of deism, which proposes a God who creates a universe with many possible pathways determined by chance, but otherwise does not interfere with the physical world or the lives of humans. Although it is possible, says Stenger, to conceive of such a God who plays dice with the universe and leaves no trace of his role as prime mover, such a God is a far cry from traditional religious ideas of God and, in effect, may as well not exist.

Like his bestselling book, God, The Failed Hypothesis, this new work presents a rigorously argued challenge to many popular notions of God and spirituality.

 

Quantum Questions: Mystical Writings of the World's Great Physicists - Ken Wilber 2001

Amazon Synopsis: Here is a collection of writings that bridges the gap between science and religion. Quantum Questions collects the mystical writings of each of the major physicists involved in the discovery of quantum physics and relativity, including Albert Einstein, Werner Heisenberg, and Max Planck. The selections are written in non-technical language and will be of interest to scientists and nonscientists alike.

 

Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything - Ervin Laszlo 2007

Amazon Synopsis: Presents the unifying world-concept long sought by scientists, mystics, and sages: an Integral Theory of Everything.

  • Explains how modern science has rediscovered the Akashic Field of perennial philosophy
  • New edition updates ongoing scientific studies, presents new research inspired by the first edition, and includes new case studies and a section on animal telepathy

Mystics and sages have long maintained that there exists an interconnecting cosmic field at the roots of reality that conserves and conveys information, a field known as the Akashic record. Recent discoveries in vacuum physics show that this Akashic Field is real and has its equivalent in science’s zero-point field that underlies space itself. This field consists of a subtle sea of fluctuating energies from which all things arise: atoms and galaxies, stars and planets, living beings, and even consciousness. This zero-point Akashic Field is the constant and enduring memory of the universe. It holds the record of all that has happened on Earth and in the cosmos and relates it to all that is yet to happen.

In Science and the Akashic Field, philosopher and scientist Ervin Laszlo conveys the essential element of this information field in language that is accessible and clear. From the world of science he confirms our deepest intuitions of the oneness of creation in the Integral Theory of Everything. We discover that, as philosopher William James stated, “We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep.”


The Universe in a Single Atom - The Convergence of Science and Spirituality - H.H. the Dalai Lama 2006

Amazon Synopsis: Galileo, Copernicus, Newton, Niels Bohr, Einstein. Their insights shook our perception of who we are and where we stand in the world, and in their wake have left an uneasy coexistence: science vs. religion, faith vs. empirical inquiry. Which is the keeper of truth? Which is the true path to understanding reality?

After forty years of study with some of the greatest scientific minds, as well as a lifetime of meditative, spiritual, and philosophic study, the Dalai Lama presents a brilliant analysis of why all avenues of inquiry—scientific as well as spiritual—must be pursued in order to arrive at a complete picture of the truth. Through an examination of Darwinism and karma, quantum mechanics and philosophical insight into the nature of reality, neurobiology and the study of consciousness, the Dalai Lama draws significant parallels between contemplative and scientific examinations of reality. 

This breathtakingly personal examination is a tribute to the Dalai Lama’s teachers—both of science and spirituality. The legacy of this book is a vision of the world in which our different approaches to understanding ourselves, our universe, and one another can be brought together in the service of humanity.

 

The Visionary Window: A Quantum Physicist's Guide to Enlightenment by Amit Goswami 2006

Amazon Synopsis: Does God exist? Can spirituality be integrated with science? Is happiness possible? Do miracles really happen? Not only does The Visionary Window answer "yes" to all of these questions, but it skillfully combines the fields of philosophy, cosmology, religion, and psychology to form a new way of thinking about science and spirituality. Stepping beyond the classic work of prominent seventies physicist Fritjof Capra, Goswami details his own pioneering exploration of science and spirit, revealing the complete integration between modern science and spiritual traditions.

Using stories and colorful examples from pop culture, Goswami addresses complex issues in language and terminology easily accessible to the lay reader. He provides quantum physics-based theory and new experimental data verifying the metaphysical truth that exists when employed in the context of a new science, science within the primacy of consciousness.

With a new holistic worldview, Goswami also discusses the creativity of the body to self heal; the power of spiritual practice and how to choose a meditative path; and the five stages of spiritual growth, culminating in the ability to transcend the physical laws of nature. Readers, scientists and spiritual leaders alike will find answers to many of life’s deepest mysteries.



The Vodou Quantum Leap; Alternative Realities, Power, and Mysticism - Reginald Crosley 2000

Amazon Synopsis: There's an old saying that truth is stranger than fiction. As scientists dive deeper into the very nature of the universe, the truth becomes so bizarre as to be almost inconceivable--multiple universes, parallel dimensions, dark matter, wormholes . . . Wouldn't it be amazing if there were already a map to these discoveries?


There is such a map, and it's found deep within the Afro-Caribbean religious system commonly called Vodou. Now you can learn how to traverse these dimensions, contact spiritual entities, and incorporate the tenets of Vodou into your own spiritual path by using Dr. Reginald Crosley's "The Vodou Quantum Leap.


"Dr. Crosley, a physician of Internal Medicine and Nephrology, is familiar with both the scientific and spiritual world. He was raised with Vodou and has studied the new sciences for years. Using his vast knowledge of sciences, religion and spirituality, he has written a book that will open your mind and change your life.
Learn the powerful secrets of direct communication with the Loa (gods) which is commonly called "possession" or "channeling." This ancient practice has been studied extensively, and this book presents techniques that can allow you to safely experience this ecstatic reality.

Dr. Crosley examines historic beliefs in an afterlife and how they differ from culture to culture. Then he explains the Vodou interpretation: there are two souls! One, the "semido," "retains hunger for food, drink, sex, music, and dance." That's why practitioners of Vodou provide food, drink and other comforts in the tomb. The second soul or "selido," does not return to visit the world of the living. You'll also learn the secrets of the mysterious "zin," a jar that holds hair and fingernail parings. These are a link to the "semido." From time to time a fire ritual is held to revivify the hair and nail clippings. Discover the bizarre truth about our universe when you take "The Vodou Quantum Leap."


War of the Worldviews: Science vs. Spirituality – Deepak Chopra & Leonard Mlodinow 2011

Amazon Synopsis: Two bestselling authors first met in a televised Caltech debate on “the future of God,” one an articulate advocate for spirituality, the other a prominent physicist. This remarkable book is the product of that serendipitous encounter and the contentious—but respectful—clash of worldviews that grew along with their friendship.

In War of the Worldviews these two great thinkers battle over the cosmos, evolution and life, the human brain, and God, probing the fundamental questions that define the human experience.

  • How did the universe emerge?
  • What is the nature of time?
  • What is life?
  • Did Darwin go wrong?
  • What makes us human?
  • What is the connection between mind and brain?
  • Is God an illusion?

This extraordinary book will fascinate millions of readers of science and spirituality alike, as well as anyone who has ever asked themselves, What does it mean that I am alive?


The Way from Science to Soul; Integrating Physics, the Brain, and the Spiritual Journey - Casey Blood 2007

Amazon Synopsis: The hallmark of the book is the clarity of the writing and its accessibility to nonscientists. It gives a more specific and scientifically grounded connection between physics and spirituality than any other book in the field. The core of the mystery of quantum mechanics, embodied in Schrödinger's cat, is described in an easily understandable but scientifically accurate way.
