3.0 out of 5 stars Not waving but drowning, 22 July 2010
This review is from: The Quantum Self (Paperback)
Ms Zohar has attempted to bring to life a sense of what quantum physics means to BOTH you AND me, but like everyone else with a degree has forgotten that most of us haven't had much of an education and therefore simply struggle to understand. Every cell of my body/being knows it needs to resonate with Ms Zohar's vision but I am left with a feeling of distance, a sense of not BOTH /AND but very much a sense that despite so much knowledge now available to the masses a door remains shut that not even a tidal quantum wave seems able to open. I know deeply that despite my failure to be able to understand what quantum physics means to my ordering of life that the time has come for a quantum leap beyond the either/or mentality, the black/ white, right /wrong duality. Sadly though Ms Zohar, despite her best efforts is for me the educated equivalent of the sound of one hand clapping, I cannot understand her words at the level of intelect as I just have not got the capicity to get my head round physics let alone Bose-Einstein condensates, but perhaps just the act of trying will effect me in ways that I cannot begin to comprehend. So I can't say if you will find this book life changing but sense we all are heading in this direction whether we know it or understand it or not.....
But if Ms Zohar or anyone else has any idea how to present this stuff for the masses I truly hope they will put pen to paper and have a go because I can't be alone in wanting to step beyond this Descartes body/mind split and stop acting like a billiard ball and reach BOTH out AND in to being ...it just seems astounding to me that I can feel so much resonance with Ms Zohar's pointing at the moon ..... yet intellect keeps us in so many ways worlds appart.
