From Science to God: A Physicist's Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness

( 3 )

Overview


Peter Russell went from being a strict atheist and scientist to discovering a profound personal synthesis of the mystical and the scientific. That transition is the basis of this book. In From Science to God, he blends physics, psychology, and philosophy to reach a new worldview in which consciousness is a fundamental quality of creation. Russell shows how all the ingredients for this worldview are in place; it remains only to put the pieces together and explore the new picture of reality that emerges. ...

Overview


Peter Russell went from being a strict atheist and scientist to discovering a profound personal synthesis of the mystical and the scientific. That transition is the basis of this book. In From Science to God, he blends physics, psychology, and philosophy to reach a new worldview in which consciousness is a fundamental quality of creation. Russell shows how all the ingredients for this worldview are in place; it remains only to put the pieces together and explore the new picture of reality that emerges. Integrating a deep knowledge of science with his own experiences of meditation, Russell arrives at a universe similar to that described by many mystics — one in which the inner and outer worlds no longer conflict. The bridge between them, he shows, is light, and this book invites readers to cross that bridge to find new meaning in God and a deeper significance in spiritual practice.

    I Also Recommend:

    Man is a star's way of knowing about stars (George Wald)

    I was writing about the experiences of the historical Jesus and asking "What did He see?" "Who was He speaking with?" "Is there a God?" "Can we trust the messengers?" Evolution vs. Creationists... are there any right answers, or can Evolution and God exist naturally in our Universe?

    I am searching for an explanation of consciousness, God, and soul. I found much in this book that leads me further along the path. I have to agree with other critics here that the book did not quite go far enough. However, science has not gone far enough to comprehend what 'thinking' is. How, from inert dust and mud did consciousness arise? From where do we have a sense of ourselves?

    "Out of the cradle, on to dry land
    Here it is standing, atoms with consciousness, matter with curiosity," (Feynman)

    Peter Russell touches on these questions but not with the depth I was hoping for. Yet, how can we expect him to do this for us when all mankind still has not come far enough to 'knowing'? This is a great little book but serves more as an introduction to what questions we should be asking and what answers we might expect in the future. My next book to read is:

    "Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel" by Michio Kaku.

    I think these two books will work well when read together. I am glad that I read "From Science to God" first, and I recommend that you do the same, knowing with certainty that this little book will only serve to whet your appetite for more.
