Journeying through the shamanistic world, from the Himalayas to the jungles of Peru, Fred Alan Wolf encountered strange phenomena--natural healing, firewalking, shape-shifting, near-death and out-of-body experiences, visions of the past and future, time traveling, and lucid dreaming-that seemingly could not be reconciled with his training as a theoretical physicist.
Wolf shows how the concepts of the New Physics--the "observer effect," parallel universes, the uncertainty principle, and the "holographic universe"--can illuminate the mysteries of shamanism, and vice versa. A surprising exploration of the links between the natural and the supernatural, The Eagle's Quest is an inspiring intellectual and spiritual odyssey.
