A broad social shift has been taking place over the last few years; the materialistic world view of the past centuries is giving way to a view of life in which our consciousness is the primary focus. The entanglement of consciousness and reality raises questions about life and society that have been posed since ancient times.
The Dutch artist and researcher Iebele Abel uses technology and present-day science to reiterate these questions. Within different disciplines of science, technology, and philosophy, these questions are addressed on a fundamental level. Now evidence is growing that consciousness and the bodily manifestation of life itself are entangled; this may be the starting point for new observations, from which radical new technologies and forthcoming cultures may derive.
In MANIFESTATIONS OF MIND IN MATTER, Iebele Abel meets prominent scientists and pioneers in the practice of consciousness research. He does not avoid complex questions. He explores the boundaries of artistic, spiritual, and scientific thinking in open-hearted and personal conversations.
This full-color book, containing both conversations and images of the art of Iebele Abel, is interesting for anyone who refuses to take things for granted, but who is fascinated by the mysterious entanglement of mind and matter.
