The perfect read for those who like their metaphysics interspersed with science...or vice versa.

Wow! What an interesting read! This is a real mind-blower of a book which I really liked. The only thing I felt was a bit weak was part (not all) of the ufology research. For anyone who has done a bit of research into ufos, they can reasonably conclude that there is physical evidence of EBEs and UFOs; but not readily available to the public. At least not yet! Really enjoyed reading this though. Well done!

The book is on to something. Something over their heads. Nevertheless, they did a decent job of explaining their interpretation of THE HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE. A lot of unnecessary dribble is added, but if you slog your way through it, you won't regret it.

Please note that this is not a science book. The original publishing date for this book is 1991. the version I have read is republished in 2011. Contrary to the claim in the 2011 forward science is not catching up to the author's "foresightedness". Normally I do not make much comment on an author's premise however I feel I must in this instance. To refute all the claims in this book would take a book so I will limit myself to a few. 1) This book only mentions Descent through Modification in a facile one sentence generalization of criticism of Darwin's theory of evolution. The theory of course completely refutes the author's premise. 2) Sataya Sai Baba who is frequently referenced, refused to do a controlled experiment on his abilities in 1976. Additionally if he can violate the laws of physics, travel anywhere in space and time why can he only conjure goods currently being manufactured instead of say, an Apple watch in 1975. 3)The author himself dies shortly after writing this book. Surely when the physic was chastising him for yelling at his spleen she could have noticed the cancer and they could have repaired his body. This book is simply a collection of anecdotal incidents, dubious evidence and a collection of poorly constructed experiments. Science is showing we are all connected, but only in a material way not a spiritual way. Read it if you must.

A classic, a lumpy classic! But hey, you don't have to buy the authors entire worldview, you can be challenged by some of his examples, or walk away. It's heavy on detail, anecdote but better too much than too little.
Bohm and Pribram, are his two big fig leaves of science; his case depends on their theories,
and Talbot presents them well. The book is worth browsing for that alone.
