Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub

"A ground-breaking work. Clear, imaginative, and inspiring, it offers a revolutionary image of the human mind and universe."—(Dr. Stanislav Grof)
In his exciting and original view of the universe, Itzhak Bentov has provided a new perspective on human consciousness and its limitless possibilities. Widely known and loved for his delightful humor and imagination, Bentov explains the familiar world of phenomena with perceptions that are as lucid as they are thrilling. He gives us a provocative picture of ourselves in an expanded, conscious, holistic universe, showing us that:
* Our bodies mirror the universe, down to the working of each cell.
* We are pulsating beings in a vibrating universe, in constant motion between the finite and the infinite.
* The universe and all matter is consciousness in the process of developing.
* Our brains are thought amplifiers, not thought's source.
* The universe is a hologram. And so is the brain—a hologram interpreting a holographic universe.
* We can instantly reclaim any information ever known.
called death, the higher bodies that make up our so-called “personalities” leave the physical body and continue their existence on the levels above the physical, which are to the unit of consciousness as valid a reality as the physical was previously. This unit of consciousness can still interact weakly with the physical reality. Thoughts or desires do not originate in the brain. They are generated by the respective bodies or fields that act on the brain to produce tiny impulses that the brain
effort does not need to rely on my description of things. He can go to the zoo and see things for himself. I must apologize to women readers for calling the Creator “He.” A Creator is neither He nor She but both. But somehow I couldn’t bring myself to call Him “Chairperson of the Universe.” I don’t think He would go for that, nor could I face Him in good conscience afterward. 1. SOUND, WAVES AND VIBRATION We are constantly surrounded by sound. We even have a highly specialized opening in our
when the objective conditions become favorable, the tree will come out of its meditative, hybernating state as a seed and unfold in objective space-time as a mature tree. The seed, in other words, is a more basic structure than the tree because in its qualities it is closer to the absolute. Here we might be able to shed some light on the “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” controversy. If the egg feels lonely and wants company, the only way for it to have more eggs around is to go

cycle, per second sound. This modulation will occur 10 times per second with minima occurring every six cycles. This 10 H.3 modulation is called a beat frequency and is the difference between the a and b frequencies, or 60 Hz. minus 50 Hz. = 10 Hz. Were we to make a a 10 cycles per second sound and b a 12 cycles per second sound, we would then have a 12 minus 10 = 2 cycle per second beat frequency superimposed on these two basic frequencies. The knowledge of these two properties of “sound” will
