5.0 out of 5 stars Truly mind expanding, 20 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quantum Psychology: How Brain Software Programs You and Your World (Paperback)
This is one of the most intelligent and challenging books I have ever read. I can't tell you how long it took me to get through it. It's incredibly heavy, synthesizing as it does, a vast array of different ideas to come up with a perspective that is both profoundly illuminating and completely contradictory to accepted wisdom. If you're buying this it would help if you had a basic understanding of psychology and physics, or a lot of time on your hands! All of his ideas really need to be explored in your own life. Like all Wilson's books, this is about deprogramming beliefs in order to come to a greater understanding of the world. This can be a painful process if you have a lot of firm beliefs.I had to spend a lot of time thinking about some of his ideas and letting them sink in before I could accept them or even start to unravel their implications. Whether you accept them or not, he was an incredibly intelligent man and the ideas he sets out here warrant a great deal of examination.

Wilson argues that reality is subject to neurological relativity. That everything from our individual perceptions and thoughts about the world to the very idea of objective reality may be erroneous.But this isn't sophistry. It has a very clear and noble purpose, to get us to transcend our habit of making judgements about definite reality, so that we can grow intellectually and be more understanding of each other.

Unlike some of his books, he chose to adopt a "scientific" perspective in writing this. In other books he approaches the same ideas from a more trickster-like or mystical perspective. For this reason, this comes across as less subjective and I warrant will appeal to wider section of people, even if you interest is purely confined to the quantum/scientific elements of his thesis.
