    Kabbalah Goes Beyond Quantum Physics

    Early on in this book one finds a startlingly clear description of the differences between Kabbalah and quantum physics through a conversation between Dr. Jeffrey Satinover, MS, MD and Michael Laitman, PhD. Laitman then continues to lead the reader through the Essence of the Wisdom of Kabbalah, the Perception of Reality and finally Realizing the Spiritual Gene. This book is well-written, thought-provoking, and a great combination of science and spirituality. The Glossary of Kabbalistic Terms at the back of the book is excellent, providing a solid foundation to readers at all levels.

    I'm very enthusiastic about Kabbalah, Science and the Meaning of Life.

    I'm very enthusiastic about Kabbalah, Science and the Meaning of Life. It starts with an abbreviated version of a talk by Dr. Laitman to university students that serves as an overview of the book and also shows how our time is a special unique time in all of history.
    This book confronts all the important issues of religion and science including quantum physics, free will, reality and the perception of reality in an easy to absorb fashion.
    The most amazing concept I found is that in fact we have what Dr. Laitman describes as a 'spiritual gene' that the law of nature uses to help us develop in stages unique to each of our perceptions of reality at any particular time.
    Dr. Laitman tells us through this book that the modern science of Kabbalah (wisdom of Kabbalah) gives us the tools to attain the roots of reality from which we can grow and advance to attain the reality of the higher worlds.

    Kabbalah Science and the Meaning of Life

    Kabbalah Science and the Meaning of Life is a wonderful book for anyone interested in learning concepts that help them relate to life as we know it. It explains how we are all part of one soul, teaching us that we must learn to work together for the good of all humanity, developing at our own pace, to reach spirituality. Kabbalah Science and the Meaning of Life explains the importance of suffering and why we all experience this in one form or the other. Working our way through suffering we begin to build the point in the heart in order to become more altruistic, finally learning what the meaning of life really is.

    Science and Wisdom collide

    A couple years ago I became interested in Quantum Physics. About a year ago I started studying Kabbalah, so you can imagine my interest when I found this book.
    The first half of the book offered more of a quantum physics/modern scientific stand point. This part of the book really intrigued me and I understood quite a bit of it.
    The second half was from the Kabbalistic side of things. I trudged through this part of the book. It was hard for me to read more than a page or two at time, it is thick with an explanation of why science has reached a standstill. Some of this information felt very personal to me so I wanted to digest it as best as possible.
    I gained a lot from reading this, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who knows nothing of Kabbalah, unless they are an open-minded scientific type.

    The scientific study of reality provides the meaning to life

    This is not an introductory book to the study of Kabbalah, but it does serve as an introductory book to Kabbalah¿s more technical and scientific aspects. Kabbalah is a science and this science explains the overall structure of the spiritual worlds. This book gives us a strong foundation to begin the exploration of the science and mathematics of our existence. There is nothing mystical or ethereal in these pages. The discussion relates directly to the nature of matter and specifically relates Kabbalah to Quantum Physics. A must read for all serious Kabbalah students and a reference guide to be used again and again.

    Explore the intersection of Science and Spirituality

    I have never been much into what I call "woo-woo" philosophy or spirituality, yet I firmly believe that there is much more to the world than what we perceive. This book was just what I was looking for. It takes a very down-to-earth explanation of what is meant by "spirituality." It also looks at modern science, and shows how science is coming to the same conclusions that Kabbalah asserted thousands of years ago. There is a limit to what we can know with our 5 senses however (the realm of modern science), sense spirituality is a completely different dimension. We are then led on an exploration of where science cannot go, yet we are told that there is a way for us to develop the "instruments" necessary to examine it. Excellent book for the scientist and the sceptic, as well as those seeking deeper spiritual explanations to the phenomenon in the world around us.

This is a science! It is a journey you will not forget! I challenge you to read this remarkable book and see for your self the Unity that lays within!

    Why do I need to change?

    We have all heard the old cliché, ¿change is good¿. What was communicated thorough out this book was how change is not only good but a must, a necessity for this world to be in balance with Nature. As you read chapter after chapter you find Rav Laitman speaking always of change. Never will you think of change in the same way again. Most of us usually put the blame on a situation or others, thinking that if only someone or something would change, our life would be much better. Within only a few chapters, the reader will find out that is not the key to overcoming our muddled thinking. Within these pages you will discover a practical method intended to help you through every moment of your life, that method is Kabbalah.
