Product Description


"Decoding GUTs, WIMPs, and The Big Crunch, Ervin Laszlo brings the ancient Indian concept of akasha into the new millennium and convincingly details how science is turning this metaphor into a viable scientific theory."

Product Description

Presents the unifying world-concept long sought by scientists, mystics, and sages: an Integral Theory of Everything

• Explains how modern science has rediscovered the Akashic Field of perennial philosophy

• New edition updates ongoing scientific studies, presents new research inspired by the first edition, and includes new case studies and a section on animal telepathy

Mystics and sages have long maintained that there exists an interconnecting cosmic field at the roots of reality that conserves and conveys information, a field known as the Akashic record. Recent discoveries in vacuum physics show that this Akashic Field is real and has its equivalent in science’s zero-point field that underlies space itself. This field consists of a subtle sea of fluctuating energies from which all things arise: atoms and galaxies, stars and planets, living beings, and even consciousness. This zero-point Akashic Field is the constant and enduring memory of the universe. It holds the record of all that has happened on Earth and in the cosmos and relates it to all that is yet to happen.

In Science and the Akashic Field, philosopher and scientist Ervin Laszlo conveys the essential element of this information field in language that is accessible and clear. From the world of science he confirms our deepest intuitions of the oneness of creation in the Integral Theory of Everything. We discover that, as philosopher William James stated, “We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep.”

4.0 out of 5 stars The role of the eternal cosmic spiritual field 13 Dec 2009
By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER
Science and the Akashic Field: An integral theory of everything, by Ervin Laszlo, Inner Traditions, Rochester, Vermont, 2004, 224 ff.

The role of the eternal cosmic spiritual field
By Howard A. Jones

`There are many ways of comprehending the world: through personal insight, mystical intuition, art, and poetry, as well as the belief systems of the world's religions.' This is how Ervin Laszlo opens one of his more recent books - as a scientist and philosopher with over 70 books already to his credit as author or co-author. This is interesting because the author's first thoughts are for the numinous or spiritual. Of course, as a scientist himself, Laszlo then goes on to consider `the way of science.'

For more than a century scientists have sought a Unified Field Theory, or Grand Unifying Theory (GUT) as it is more often called today, that would use mathematics to find the relationship between the four forces of nature - gravity, the electromagnetic force, and the two forces that act within atoms, the so-called strong and weak forces. So far, uniting even these "physical" forces has eluded scientists; yet, already, what we know of the workings of the atom has suggested a possible link between the physical and the mental dimensions of the world, between seemingly lifeless atoms and mind, consciousness and living matter.

The idea that there is a spiritual dimension underlying all things in the material world is a belief of mystics that goes back several millennia. We have heard it said in a religious context many times through the centuries. In the 19th century it was said by biologists and philosophers, whose world-view was described as "vitalism".

4.0 out of 5 stars FAB 2 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I read some years ago (I can't remember where) that during one's life time 50 trillion solar neutrinos pass through the average human body yet only three might colide with an atom, I wondered about all the 'space' within us allowing this to happen. I wondered how those neutrinos must have passed through all sorts of people and things (including our planet) before passing through me, and if we were all indeed connected by the medium through which they flowed. I also wondered if they were affected by what they passed through and if in turn they affected what they then passed through. It also all begged the question, really is the nature of realilty when we all look pretty solid yet all those neutrinos were passing through us?

I wanted to find out more but was daunted at the prospect, not being a scientist by training. Therefore when I read this book, where Laszlo has done pretty much all the work in bringing together the latest thinking of physists, biologists and cosmologists, I was delighted. Yes it is not easy to understand some parts of it, but that is to be expected because some of behaviour of particles is quite mind blowing and is puzzling to scientists themselves. I now understand that it is highly unlikely I will ever understand how or why we are here, but there is comfort in knowing at least the particles that make the (apparently) physical 'me' will continue to exist and that they are amazing little critters!

PS the music reviews on Amazon are my husband's!

5.0 out of 5 stars Science and the Akashic Field 3 May 2009
Although many 'main stream' scientists might argue with Lazlo's point of view, this is mainly because they are excessively biased towards believing what they have been taught, and are reluctant to consider anything outside of this sphere. Lazlo argues the case for the 'Akashic Field' extremely well and produces overall a well written and compelling work which is the fruit of many years of deep thinking and study. I would recommend it to anyone with an open and inquiring mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars long-shot integration - interesting 21 July 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
if you like your science cutting edge and far out, this is for you

hard-headed or incredulous readers to avoid it

good for speculation-lovers, and possibly an opening into where science is going to go... but possibly not

4.0 out of 5 stars Intersting concept in thinking 24 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Definitely worth a read also try reading the Field and read with an open mind there is a great wealth of knowledge that is being ignored by the main stream science if only one paranormal incident can be proved then a Pandora's box is open.
Enjoy the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating book. 16 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fascinating! I recomend this book about the last discoveries of the cutting edge science. With this book I got the answers I had since years 1990, when I was reading David Bohm and Stanislas Grof.
Ervin Lszlo book is clear and easy to understand for somebody who is not a scientist but interested in science.
Everybody must read this book, because it opens the mind to a fantastic reality about our universe, our world and ourself. Science confirms the spiritual experiences at their highest level, and spirituality is not separated from science.

2.0 out of 5 stars My Review 19 May 2008
All depends on what you're looking for, Metaphysics is a complex subject in its self and takes time to read and re read, to grasp new concepts.

This books description looks good. I can only speak from my own personal view. I found it far too intellectual. Cold and clinical. So much technical and science fact or speculation, as you read each chapter you seem to be reading the same over and over, it's a bit like a book with no start or end. I don't like spending all my time looking up in a dictionary what every second word means why not say the word "joined" rather than some English graduate concept. Any book should have a clear understanding, for me sadly I got very bored and have not finished reading this book. It's one I shall forget about or sell, it's not for me. I have Studied hard for 20 years, this book dose give some insights but you have to have one hell of an Intellect to process what it is and I would even go so far as to say, what is it really talking about, there seems to be a total lack of joining anything, It's like opening a book at a random page and feel you are missing something!

From my own studies, basics in Metaphysics are posed as questions, in fact is already spiritual science and for the moment accepted as how things are, so this book misses many things.
I personally can not recommend it, It may be good for some, limited people. with high IQ or lived in Higher education all there life.
Not for the man in the street or even a student of the Spiritual Sciences

in-formation is present in the world independent of human volition and action and is a decisive factor in the evolution of the things that furnish the real world. &quote;

The great physicist David Bohm called it “in-formation,” meaning a process that actually “forms” the recipient. This is the concept we shall adopt here. &quote;
Highlighted by 26 Kindle users
What in-formation is: In-formation is a subtle, quasi-instant, non-evanescent and non-energetic connection between things at different locations in space and events at different points in time. Such connections are termed “nonlocal” in the natural sciences and “transpersonal” in consciousness research. &quote;
