One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
Price: £7.79

4.0 out of 5 stars A most interesting book on the all encompassing subject of consciousness, 29 Jan. 2015
The One Mind is the most interesting book on the all encompassing subject of consciousness that I have recently encountered. From the outset, the author points out that there appear to be so many levels of human awareness and so many states of mind ... which one do we mean?
He then attempts a definition in terms of the Indian spiritual tradition which holds that, in truth and despite of appearances to the contrary, there is but the Brahman ... the One Mind, a singular universal consciousness which alone exists. Dossey then proceeds to present a considerable amount of evidence to support this position across a wide spectrum of human evidence, including just amount everything from modern quantum physics to near death experiences and the possibility of re-incarnation. He firmly positions himself in the school of thought which regards the human as a reducing value for the universal consciousness in order to create the illusion of individuality. He takes a side swipe at the materialist view--popularised by the so called 'Four Horseman of the New Atheism: Dawkins, Dennett, Harris and Hitchens--that human consciousness is nothing more than a by-product or epiphenomenon arising from brain activity.

The final chapters of the book are, to my mind, the most interesting in which Larry Dossey has much to say about the subject of spirituality. In particular, he raises the point that it is not sufficient just to know the theory but rather to struggle to achieve a practical realisation of it in one's life.
All of this may be too much for those of a conventional scientific persuasion but nevertheless I would recommend that this book deserves a wide audience and to be read with an open mind if nothing else.

The Tao of Physics (Flamingo)
The Tao of Physics (Flamingo)
by Fritjof Capra
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and ground breaking book, 28 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First published in the UK, this is an excellent, controversial and ground breaking book which explores the parallels of the traditional wisdom of Eastern Mysticism and contemporary Physics. Capra's writing style is clear and engaging throughout. It is well supported with many helpful diagrams and illustrations to the extent that he makes a complex subject approachable to the intelligent layman. Nevertheless, the 'Tao of Physics' is rather dated now. Those interested in following up Capra's more recent work may find his 'The Systems View of Life', published last year--2014-- to be more relevant to 21st century issues. The Systems View of Life: A Unifying Vision

Readers may also find a more up to date view on the subject as expressed in 'Quantum Creativity' by Amit Goswami to be of interest.

This review is from: National Rail Enquiries (App)
This is a very useful and easy to use App and has removed the inconvenience and annoyance of arriving on time at my local railway station only to find that the service to London has been cancelled of delayed as the result of bad weather, engineering works, a trespasser on the line, industrial action or one of a myriad of other reasons.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars An essential piece of certified equipment for the KIndle Fire HDX 7", 20 Jan. 2015

This is an essential piece of certified equipment if you wish to output your Kindle Fire HDX 7" display to a larger screen or to a projector. The adaptor connects to external display via a HDMI connector which is provided. I found the setting of the WIFI connection to my Kindle tablet to be straightforward. This arrangement offers the interesting possibility--which I have successfully tested--of giving Power point presentations from your tablet with the use of an appropriate app.
