Product Description

Synopsis

The almost Aesop-like parables in Star Trek laid down a philosophy of moral rectitude. However, the show did more by giving a positive vision of a future thought of as science fiction and unattainable in the 60s, such as existing as non-corporal beings and being able to manifest whatever we wanted with mind power alone. Now, more than 40 years later, we realise we can achieve these things, and it has been easier to accept current concepts evolving during these years because Star Trek paved the way. Also during the 60s "A Course in Miracles" was being scribed, and it espoused the same principles essential to Star Trek: we create our own reality; love is stronger than force of will; and all our reality is an illusion based on our perception.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intrigued 25 Mar 2009
Format:Hardcover
As well as being a Star Trek fan of long standing, I was intrigued by the title of this one. My first thought was, 'What else is there to reveal, as it's already been on TV for years?' Now I understand that the author was explaining the subliminal messages in the series about everything that was wrong with Western society in the 60s-70s. Just reading about the individual programmes really took me back. And the moral revelations did not really come a surprise as I read. Carole Devine just made me think a bit more. A very enjoyable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Star Trek Original Series Examined from a Spiritual Perspective 20 Oct 2007
By Karen K. German - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Miss Devine presents an absorbing and in-depth examination of elements from the original 1960's Star Trek TV series and how it presaged fantastic notions about reality that have been validated by modern physics and popularized by "new-age" science of the mind. She probes the reasons that Star Trek, and its creator Gene Roddenberry, grasped the popular mind and continues to spawn Star Trek series generation after generation. Fascinating read, so step into the world of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and the entire crew of the Enterprise for an enjoyable introduction into the alternative and possible realities that may co-exist with our reality or be discovered in some not-so-distant future. The appendix offers in one place a list of many Resources for further exploration of current new-age thought and concepts.

A wonderful book to open new windows of our minds. Carole Devine helps us break through the narrow limits of our understanding to reveal truths she has discovered and now willingly shares with us. This is a book that can be relished by the reader whether or not they are Star Trek fans.
5.0 out of 5 stars A NEW PERSPECTIVE 31 July 2007
By BZnumbers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book give a fresh and new way to look at a show that is part of our culture. You do not have to be a fan of the show to appreciate the insightful way Ms. Devine dealt with this familiar subject. It gives one a whole new persective on the series. Well written and entertaining.
