Science and Human Transformation: Subtle Energies, Intentionality and Consciousness based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I recommend this book for any individual seeking to know more than the limited phenomenal world of sense perception from both a scientific and spiritual perspective. Tiller, an overtly respected modern science practitioner, has, through three decades of behind-the-scenes research efforts, traversed the material landscape into the nether world of consciousness, the missing variable of which Einstein often spoke which would allow him to know the Mind of God, the Grand Design, the Platonic Divine Nous. To Einstein, all else was trivia. Consciousness, and its near offspring, intentionality, is the variable that will reconcile the seemingly mutually exclusive Bohr/Einstein paradox. Einstein believed in some underlying, ordered reality which is separate and distinct from the observer whereas Bohr¿s conclusion implies that, at least in part, reality is predicated on an observer. Bohr¿s conclusion strongly suggested that there is no ultimate reality without an observer to which Einstein retorted in his now famous comment: Does the moon disappear once we stop looking at it? Tiller has researched, elucidated and calculated what I suspect will be the next major scientific theoretical model that is the first step in articulating two primary levels of reality¿relative and absolute---and how these two levels correlate with gross, subtle and causal realms. It is the sacred union, Heiros Gamos, of left and right brain cognition, Aristotelian and Heraclitean logic, analytical and intuitive truth. It requires Aristotelian logic to comprehend the phenomenal world it requires Heraclitean logic to intuitively grasp the Absolute. His scientific research, once comprehended, allows for the first visible interlocking threads of psychology, science, religion and philosophy to be woven together. At last, everyone, materialists and metaphysicians, fundamentalists and esoterics, behavioralists and transpersonalists, Eastern and Western philosophers, will have a seat at the grand table of the cosmos. It is, in a large sense, the rudimentary beginning of authentic tolerance on the planet.
Dr. Tiller's excellent book, SCIENCE AND HUMAN TRANSFORMATION, boldly goes where few books dare to enter. Tiller presents a fascinating model of our universe as being multi-dimensional with a spiritual component. This book will likely be enjoyed most by readers who have experienced psychic or psycho-kinetic events in their lives, and are seeking a rational explanation for what might be going on. Those who have not yet had such experiences may not be convinced that such things exist -- even after reading Tiller's fascinating account of how he created a gas-discharge device in the 1970's while he was a professor at Stanford University which demonstrated that 'anyone could produce a positive (psychokinetic) result'. SCIENCE AND HUMAN TRANSFORMATION is a joy to read for anyone who loves to play with new ideas and theories. It contains a wealth of schematic diagrams, charts, equations and references to support the theories Tiller presents. This book will most appeal to readers who love books they can ponder for some time, as it is packed with such ideas as: sensory arrays, etheric light cones, nodal networks and holograms. The main point of SCIENCE AND HUMAN TRANSFORMATION is that the component of mind and consciousness has long been excluded from scientific study, and even omitted from Theories Of Everything (TOEs). Obviously, if we're going to have a theory of everything it had better include consciousness! Tiller knows this quite well, and artfully constructs a bridge for future scientists with open minds to cross over to a place where unseen things (such as human energy fields) have huge effects. If we want to know what has eluded us for so long, we need to go to the very places which are currently least well understood. SCIENCE AND HUMAN TRANSFORMATION provides a sturdy bridge for us to reach those previously unknown places.
