This book, along with the other in similar vein, The Holographic Universe, is a fascinating informative read and, to me, anyway, gives a very good idea of how the whole of the universe works.

As another reviewer said, some of the passages are quite profound and have you reading them again and I whole-heartedly agree with this sentiment.

I did not find either of these books 'hard-going', in fact, I think that they are written in an easily understandable, erudite style.

If you are interested in how everything comes into being, why, what is conciousness, I suggest you read this book and The Holographic Universe, as I have read many books on the subject and these two, actually come very close to my mind in explaining these notoriously difficult aspects of our 'being', which 'conventional' science either ignores or debunks and throws scorn on many aspects of mystcism, which are extremely well documented.

If Michael had lived, I just wonder what else he would have written in this area and what great insights he may have given us.

This is a very detailed book that can be quite heavy going in places, which is not helped by the small type print of the content. Michael Talbot builds the case for the parallel findings of quantum physics and the teachings of the spiritual masters. Ultimately he questions the old Newtonian paradigm of the universe being an objective fact with incontrevertable laws, but instead highlights that the universe is essentially a field of possibilities which is only manifest through the interaction of consciousness as observer. Written over twenty years ago as a young man, Talbot has revisited his work and built upon his earlier theories. As I am a person who has experienced non- medical healings of potentially serious maladies through conscious intent, I believe the findings of quantum physics has infinite potential for anyone to create their day and control the circumstances of their lives. I wouldn't recommend this book as an introduction to the subject as there is an assumption that the reader has an understanding of the scientific terminology. It is well worth a read though and I can personally validate the awesome implications of throwing off old models of thought, by understanding how we are not merely passive observers of a random universe but participators in it's unfoldment.

Written quite some time prior to the holographic universe the content of this quite small book belies that time scale. Written from an instinctual knowledge that is less deliberate than the 'Holographic Universe', and in some chapters more profound in a raw sense. Some of the passages have such a powerful gravity that it will have you reading them time and again.
If you connected with his other book then this is strangely on some levels a progression from that, and unlike what the other reviewer suggested , not heavy going at all. An invaluable piece of understanding in our own personal journey. I dont write many reviews but felt compelled to do so as the content of this book is so very important for those at that point in their understanding that boundries need to be stretched.
Michael Talbots death in 1992 was a trajic loss - his insights and understanding have been sorely missed!
