Product Description

Product Description

From the Late Prof. W J Bray
This is not a casual glossing over of subjects like a TV documentary, nor is it a narrative. There is some math involved, and the subject of Quantum Theory is a difficult one both to describe and to understand by scientists and laymen alike. The math presented is reduced to some basic algebra.
The purpose is to look at the evidence from a philosophical and religious perspective, as well as human perception and the deconstruction of various paradoxes and decide if the evidence is compelling toward the conclusion that we are not finite beings. This is not a discussion that suggests Quantum Physics is some route to the mystical, but a discussion that suggests we are not finite. We then look at the finite nature of our cosmos and conclude, if the evidence is compelling enough, that we are infinite beings merely perceiving a finite system.
That being said (from a teacher in Romania): Written by a Physicist whose expertise spans a wide range of fields, from Neuroscience Research to philosophy and religion, and who has also experienced multiple medically documented NDEs, the book suggests mathematically that reality, the Universe as we perceive it, can only exist interdependent with consciousness. Reviewing Quantum Physics from its founders’ definitions up to the latest research in the field, Bray explains in detail in language every layman can understand, provided commitment to do further research available on the WWW.
The text then goes on to describe how we interact with, manipulate and define the Universe, ultimately how we “paint the universe into being”, to use Bray’s own syntagm. He substantiates his theory with logical arguments and hard data that have been proven correct throughout a century of quantum research. After disproving beyond any reasonable doubt that consciousness is an artifact of the physical brain, by using experimental data and conclusions independently verified by leading researchers worldwide, Bray describes how consciousness creates the physical universe, how it is mathematically impossible that consciousness can be finite, and that the universe is. His conclusion that consciousness is unique for each individual is a natural outcome of his scientific, physics-based argumentation, as is the evidence that consciousness must be infinite and eternal in order to exist. We are perceiving this short, finite, physical life, while at the same time existing in the eternal consciousness, unaware of it, because we are focusing on this finite Universe as a mere perception. Bray’s purpose is not to “prove” God, but to show that each of us is a unique individual consciousness that exists beyond space-time, for infinity. He goes even further to identify the truths that have been enduring and immutable throughout centuries in philosophy and religion, by distilling them from myth and dogma. In addition, by doing this, he dismisses many paradoxes in physics, religions and philosophy. Bray succeeds in convincingly intersecting science and spirituality and showing that, contrary to cognitive beliefs which are prone to constant change, Faith is an immutable spiritual state. He has studied it not only as a scientist, but has also experienced NDEs first-hand, through recurrent cardiac arrests due to a severe medical condition that brought him repeatedly to the brink of death. Thus, the NDEs are described from the perspective of a rigorous scientist who refrains from including any biased description of them. His arguments are unambiguous, devoid of metaphor or uncertainty and the book is by no means an ideological argument or exploration, although it is at odds with almost everything written to date; Bray’s claims are substantiated with solid mathematical axioms. ‘Quantum Temporal Dynamics,’ (not related to other material using that name) is included at the end of the book, re-exploring quantum theory from scratch, and detailing mechanisms for faster- than- light travel using current technology

4.0 out of 5 stars A book you want to read again and again 15 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not even half- way through this book and I am already looking forward to reading it again. The author has a way of communicating that makes one feel he is talking in your head, rationalising the most complicated theories that you may have thought you understood completely, to make you realise that you are actually accepting others's opinions without looking deeper yourself. I already have a different outlook on life and feel like my mind is opening to other realities. Not being a spiritual person in any way I am reading his words and marvelling at his talent of harnessing his thoughts and ideas into a rational dialogue that is both entertaining and hugely educationsl in many fields. I will keep this book forever and hopefully read it many times in the hope that proof will come in my lifetime. The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is because of the amount of spelling and grammatical errors, not overwhelming but irritating to someone who is distracted by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible read 2 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book gave me a real faith when i had none.Something concrete that i can believe in a scientific and spiritual sence..It made me realise how conditioned i was by out dated human ideas and i have found a peace of mind from reading this book... I have realised what a pain in the arse my babbling mind is and how much you work against yourself... It has made me take the first step towards believing in the messiah which i would have laughed at before i read this book, still cant believe i wrote that...

4.0 out of 5 stars Badly written, but thought provoking 28 Jan 2012
By Kenton
Format:Kindle Edition
I am an avid reader of all things related to quantum physics, religion and philosophy so the title of this book appealed to me from the first. I read it through and enjoyed it, but I have found it hard to rate as on one hand it is sooo badly written it is hard to take seriously, but on the other hand it is very thought provoking about the nature of reality and the truly weird nature of quantum physics.

Firstly the bad stuff: It is hard to ignore the typos, lack of coherent structure and somewhat random discourses on a wide range of topics ranging from the author's dog to religions to NDEs. I am no poet laureate myself but I found it undermined the author's credibility. The author's writing style is also quite arrogant imo ("you have to be a chemist like me who has had multiple NDEs to refute my arguments"). Worse for me however was how current thinking on quantum physics (largely lifted from Wiki it seems) was mixed with the author's speculation backed by some very suspect maths/logic. I particularly enjoyed "time is inifite, we are not, therefore we don't exist as n/inifinty is zero" stuff....

However, and I am not sure why, but I enjoyed reading it. It is also thought provoking and caused me to explore new topics in the area.

So, in summary, if you are looking for a more technical/mainstream discussion on quantum physics then there are many better books, but if you want something to challenge how you look at the world then it is a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not sure of the authors intentions 8 Oct 2012
By steve
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book started out excellent, I have been studying for many years and for me the scientific element of this book has certainly explained a lot. Some reviews say that the author has an abrupt probably self centred approach, yet I can see why. He has to be this way to explain what others can't explain or are not willing to explain. There is some maths but for a layman such as myself I can get my head around that and understand the meanings. From this point of view then I would give the author more than 5 stars if I could.
However as you read the second part of the book you can't help but feel you are being sold something. The author does make it clear that religion is a construct and this ties neatly in with the first half of the book he also states regardless of your religion or belief it is all about faith and again this ties in very well with the hard data of quantum physics. But the second half feels a little like a bible bashing session. The author does state that he uses Christianity in the original text not the misinterpreted text to explain as he knows this the most. But it for me was spoilt with Jesus this that and the other, god as in He and translations for the testaments. In all fairness it started to sound a little hypocritical at times and if the author could understand that what he describes so well to start with he later steeps in dogma and this finite comprehension of our physical selves and works with a construct of mans own words to describe an infinite place, and if he could be neutral instead this would be a master piece. I have no doubts about this mans work or what he has experienced but the last part of the book started to feel like I was somehow being setup, brainwashed for want of a better word.
