In recent years science and philosophy have seen a resurgence of open-mindedness toward deeper views of consciousness. Today Adrian reads from the first chapter of Origins of Consciousness, a book exploring ideas and evidence now changing the way scientists and philosophers approach the place of consciousness in the universe. From the frontiers of modern physics and cosmology to controversial experiments exploring telepathy and mind-matter interaction, the emerging view promises to change how we understand our place in the universe, our relationship to other life, and the nature of reality itself.
Origins of Consciousness is now available on Amazon.
"Origins of Consciousness is visionary, prophetic, grounded in comprehensive scholarship -- and beautifully written. It is without a doubt one of the best treatments of consciousness I have read. No one in the 21st century can consider themselves educated without an awareness of the evidence presented in this book."Larry Dossey, MD
