For centuries, humankind has tried to navigate between scientific and spiritual conceptions of reality often without much success. In the resultant confusion scientists, philosophers and theologians have pondered and argued; yet the separation remains.
Norman Friedman correlates the quantum physics of David Bohm with the Perennial Philosophy described by Aldous Huxley and the spiritual insights of the channeled entity known as Seth to show how a single reality emerges from seemingly contradictory perspectives; a brilliant synthesis.
I think Bridging Science and Spirit is one of the most insightful, comprehensive and brilliant expressions of knowledge. I shall certainly use it as a reference guide. Many abstract ideas that I was not comfortable with are now more meaningful.

Bridging Science and Spirit accomplishes a formidable task. This book will be a valuable research document for many years to come for those concerned with a perspective that honors both science and spirituality.
* Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D. - Author of Taking the Quantum Leap; Parallel Universes; The Physics of the Soul
Bridging Science and Spirit correctly asks, 'How does matter originate from consciousness?' This is the fundamental question of a growing body of literature regarding the new paradigm of an idealist, consciousness-based science. Norman Friedman has made an important and thoughtful contribution to this new science.

Few have understood both science and metaphysics well enough to remove our blinders to their underlying similarities - and universal truths. Kudos to Norman Friedman for proving to be a master bridge builder.
* Lynda Madden Dahl - Co-founder, Seth Network International, award-winning author of eight Seth/Jane Roberts-based books, including the popular Living a Safe Universe series
A masterful job of bringing innate psychic understanding and scientific knowledge together, brilliantly showing us how all is one and one is all.
* Robert F. Butts - Husband of the late Jane Roberts, Channel for Seth
Some future historian will, I feel confident, identify the Great Debate of the twentieth century around the question: 'What is science going to do about consciousness?' I would surmise that Norman Friedman's book Bridging Science and Spirit will turn out to be a benchmark in that inquiry. No one can read it without gaining some clarity on their own nature.

About the Author
Friedman believed that the differing viewpoints of science and spirituality could be combined into a coherent image of reality and new understanding of the universe. Bridging Science and Spirit examines the similarities between the work of physicist David Bohm, the Perennial Philosophy as described by Ken Wilbur, and the discarnate entity Seth as channeled by Jane Roberts. The Hidden Domain presents an in-depth explanation of quantum theory, its meaning and implications, for the general readership.
Friedman served in the Navy during World War II, then attended Washington University, where he met and married his wife, Leah, in 1948. He earned a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Iowa in 1952. He died in 2008, at age 82, from complications of Alzheimer’s disease. He was a longtime resident of St. Louis, Missouri.
