This heady, ambitious and sometimes dense work succeeds in marrying fresh scientific studies to the "shift" in consciousness that the New Thought world has been prognosticating for decades. The first section delves with some detail into physics, discussing quantum, relativity, fractal and superstring theories. Referring to explorations as recent as 2005, the authors argue that these inquiries point to a renewed understanding of Akasha, which is Sanskrit for "all-pervasive space... the womb from which everything we perceive has emerged and to which everything ultimately returns." The second section empirically plumbs the limitless connections among us, while the final one addresses the "breakdown or breakthrough" juncture at which we find ourselves. The rhetoric here shifts toward a vernacular familiar to New Thought advocates about the ability and responsibility to cocreate our intensely collective experience, but the preceding science bolsters this in a substantive and unworn way. Although the dense language and passive voice make this a challenging read, it merits strong consideration by those interested in reconciling science and spirituality for our daunting times.

CosMos: A Co-creator's Guide to the Whole Worldby Ervin Laszlo
We stand at the threshold of a revolutionary and empowering new vision of the world. The discoveries of leading-edge science and the insights of spirituality are converging to reveal that the CosMos and all that we term reality is wholly integrated, and that at its most fundamental level, it is a field of information. This is the elemental cosmic mind from which everything emanates, is manifested, and to which all ultimately returns. Research is also demonstrating what the mystics of all traditions have discerned: that we have the innate ability to envision, understand, and experience the CosMos at levels far beyond the limitations of our human persona.CosMos is co-authored by two explorers who combine almost a century of seeking to understand not only how the world is as it is, but why. Philosopher Ervin Laszlo, Ph.D., and healer and scientist Jude Currivan, Ph.D., offer a revisioned view of the world that is no longer fragmented, but is at last, whole. Theirs is a perception of a meaningful and co-creative world that is exquisitely tuned to be “as simple as it can be” for consciousness to explore itself. In these momentous times, the vision shared in Cosmos invites us to open our hearts and minds to re-member who we really are and to take our places as conscious co-creators of our realities and of our evolving cosmic destiny.
