The Astonishing Physics of the Mind
How the forces of physics and energy fields of the universe and planet give rise to human beings and the human mind. What you can do about it.
There is simply no book which links psychology and physics together as does this one. In the process physical laws behind metaphysics and spirituality are explained sensibly, and in detail. Davis shows how we unwittingly practice mind power over matter every day, and how we can harness this power for our healing and transformation.
Quantum entanglement, the secret of inner silence and enlightenment, how the infants' mind is the key to our survival, the geometric shape of consciousness, the human brain/body as a supercoherent light field, ... and much, much more.
The ENERGY FIELD is the function which links psychology with physics. Dr. Davis explains the energy field functions from Faraday and human auras through Einstein's general relativity and modern quantum field physics. He introduces several new concepts originating in Planck Scale geometries, such as quantum gravity vortexes which exist as information fields of proto-consciousness, and literally build the universe.
The Astonishing Physics of the Mind is a very advanced book. But in applying these discoveries to therapy and medicine in the chapter "Radical Healing" the book brings hope to many suffering people.
from the preface:
In my first year of college I saw something unbelievable, even miraculous, which terrified me. My friend Steve and I, along with two buddies Mark and Todd, were finishing our meal in the local pizza joint when the last remains of Mark’s Coke tipped and spilled on the table. Then Steve’s discarded ham-burger wrapper slid across the table. But there was no earthquake and no wind. Steve then said, “I did that.” When we laughed at him and insisted that he prove it, he said “OK.” He then asked if anyone had matches, and Mark produced a box of matches from his pocket. Steve placed several matches on the table and apparently made them move, sliding and skidding across the table. For the next ten minutes the three of us at-tempted to prove he was a fake. And Steve kept producing his magic tricks of telekinetic powers. He then told us a black and chilling story about his life in New England as a nine-year-old boy, and a thing called “poltergeist phenomena.” His story told of having to leave home and spending many years at a special school where he was tested, probed, and later forbidden to do his tricks. To this day I want to believe that my college buddy moved things with just the force field of his mind. I, as almost any other person, want to believe in miracles. But I also want scientific proof. Using this story as a reference point, this book asks the question, “Did Steve really move the matches?”, and further asks, “Is there any evidence from science which says he did?” Do miracles exist?
This book asks and answers these questions with honesty and depth.
