Buddha and the Quantum: Hearing the Voice of Every Cell (New)
by Avery, Samuel
Publisher: Sentient Publications
Book ID: 9781591811060, 1591811066
Usually available in 3-5 days
Buddha and the Quantum explains the connection between meditation and physics in both spiritual and scientific terms. Samuel Avery's brilliant model of consciousness shows how experience in the physical world is built not from objective reality, but from experience within. Space and time - and the physical world they define - are a structure of consciousness. We can only understand the motion of the planets by putting the sun at their center; similarly, we can only understand modern physics if we put space and time within consciousness. Avery also explains why we think there is a world independent of consciousness. The concept of material substance is explained in terms of the same structure that explains quantum mechanics and relativity theory. He shows that light is visual consciousness: the experience of cells in the retina. Light is not in space; space is in light. Knowing this, relativity and the quanta suddenly make sense.
Samuel Avery has degrees in religion and history, and has taught at the university level. He has written a series of books and articles on the relation of physics and consciousness, and has practiced meditation daily for the past forty-one years.

The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
