Product Description

Review

""Molecular Consciousness" begins with a very lucid and engaging account of the way that chemists currently think about molecules and the reactions they undergo. Those with a taste for speculation will be well rewarded, for the final section of the book is a much more fanciful journey into what, on one distant day, might just conceivably become science." --Peter Atkins, author of "Four Laws that Drive the Universe" and "On-Being" and winner of the Royal Society of Chemistry's Meldola Medal

From the Back Cover

SPIRITUALITY / NEW SCIENCE "An important read for anyone who wishes to understand how we are a part of the infinite network of information that is our universe." --Kingsley L. Dennis, Ph.D., author of The Struggle for Your Mind and New Revolutions for a Small Planet and coauthor of Dawn of the Akashic Age The molecules of living organisms are in constant communication, storing and transmitting information both at the intracellular level as well as across vast distances. The mystery of how this communication occurs--whether through molecular structure, chemical reactions, entangled states, or some other method--has baffled biologists, chemists, and quantum physicists for more than a century. Revealing the intimate connections between mind and matter, Francoise Tibika explains that conscious communication exists all the way down to the very molecules of which we--and the universe--are made. Using the fundamental laws of thermodynamics to support her argument--especially the first law: "energy is neither created nor destroyed"--as well as modern scientific research in quantum physics and molecular biology, Tibika explores how each imperishable atom of the universe is intrinsically linked with all other atoms through their memories and the information they carry. She shows not only how each atom of your being is part of the greater whole of the universe but also how your thoughts, feelings, and state of mind are profoundly related to the activity of each of your molecules. Just as we are undergoing constant transformation by the molecules surrounding us, our own molecules are continuously transforming the network of which we are a part. Exploring the concrete manifestations of this molecular consciousness, such as intuition, Tibika reveals how, through effecting conscious change at the molecular level, our actions have far-reaching significance in a universe that is not blind to our presence. FRANcOISE TIBIKA, a student of famed kabbalist and mystic Colette Aboulker-Muscat, has a Ph.D. in chemistry from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Currently a lead researcher at the Institute of Chemistry at her alma mater, she lives in Jerusalem, Israel.

This well-informing book is likely to get the attention of a wide range of readers. Easy to read and interesting description of the various laws in our not-so-solid Universe: the chemistry, biology and physics on the molecular level with a thought-provoking way of describing the various laws and concepts. Relevant illustrations in places and a brilliant cover (which is as attractive as the content). Thanks!

I was really annoyed a the sheer waste of money expended on being given this book, not to mention the thought that the author would receive some royalty from it.

In fact you don't need my review of this book. I urge you just to look at the Product Description:
"a very lucid and engaging account of the way that chemists currently think about molecules" does not fit with "Françoise Tibika, a student of famed kabbalist and mystic Colette Aboulker-Muscat...". One cannot be a scientist and indulge in mysticism: in ain't possible!

The "About the author" section goes on, "...has a Ph.D. in chemistry from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem." I sincerely doubt that she has a PhD in Chemistry from any reputable university, because her book doesn't reflect the scientific method in any way. It doesn't even have a list of references!

That's all there is to say, worth saying. I hope it's useful.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT FOR THE LAYMAN ... 24 Mar. 2013
By Robert Steven Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have well over two-hundred contemporary (published during the last 15 or so years) non-fiction books on consciousness, molecular biology, quantum physics and related subjects in my library by distinguished researchers. Modern understanding of these subjects are one of my major areas of research. In terms of the worth of this book, as compared with the others, its value is only average at best for me. There are many other authors who get the same points across in a much more understandable way for the average reader. However, the biggest problem that I found is that this author really had very little new or of specific consequence to offer in this book. If the goal of an informed reader is to learn more about current state-of-the-art research relating to the fascinating subject of human consciousness, I believe you will find many better books available. Try the work of: Rupert Sheldrake, Michael Behe, Bernard Haisch, Jude Currivan or Irwin Lazlo.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Matter of Mind 1 Mar. 2013
By Miriam Knight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a little gem of a book that does three things very well and very succinctly. First, it provides a clear overview of the development of chemistry from Leucippus and Democritus in the 5th century BCE through Isaac Newton and the alchemists of the Middle Ages, up to the Laws of Thermodynamics modern times and the development of quantum physics and quantum chemistry. The book explains in simple but never simplistic terms the key discoveries and turning points in science that led to our current understanding of atoms, molecules and chemical reactions. Supported with charming illustrations and interesting anecdotes, anyone with even a modicum of interest in science should find it fascinating.

Interestingly, the study of alchemy - the forerunner of modern chemistry and physics - and philosophy went hand in hand, and intuition and inspiration were supplanted by the Scientific Method, and results were accepted as "truth" only if they could be replicated in a laboratory. Coming full circle, in the second part of the book Dr. Tibika makes a compelling case for the causal interaction between the observer and that which is observed, or if you will, mind and matter. She guides us to an understanding of the dual nature of matter, which is both infinite potential and holographic collapsed wave patterns, depending on whether there is an observer. The third part suggests a mechanism for the communication between mind and matter, namely emotion. In my understanding of the book, emotion is the subjective reaction of the conscious mind to the environment - which can be both external and internal, as in stored memories and associations.

There was a lot of food for thought in this little book, especially when you consider the Hermetic principle of "as above, so below." For example, the law of entropy (2nd Law of Thermodynamics) suggests that living systems are always either moving toward unity and coherence (life), or toward chaos and disintegration, (death). Tibika describes physical and biochemical processes, but this could equally be applied to our emotional lives and whether our actions and thoughts are life enhancing or destructive. Furthermore, her persuasive case for the connection between mind and matter suggests the mechanism by which our thoughts literally change our physical bodies, and by extension the whole universe of which we are an interconnected part. Heady stuff.

I will admit I was hoping for a book that shared possible techniques about how to communicate with your molecules. This book did not reveal such techniques. It's a good primer for explaining physics and showing that there is some type of communication occurring with molecules, but the author doesn't provide much else beyond that. If you're looking to understand the physics, this is a good book. If you're looking for something deeper or more engaging, you won't find it here.

Molecular Consciousness: Why the Universe Is Aware of Our Presence
By Françoise Tibika
ISBN: 978-1-59477-484-3 (Park Street Press, 2013)

Quantum physics is very clear in showing that the universe we live in, including ourselves, is made of pure energy--from the smallest atomic particle to the galaxies and the universe as a whole. Françoise Tibika uses a blend of hard science and intuition to guide us through an amazing awakening of understanding that we live and breathe in an aware universe, both above and below. The reality of my own existence is often overwhelming but this book helped me put that into a context I had never thought of before.
