Customer Review

on 29 March 2010
This book claims to "prove" there is life after death. It does no such thing. Instead it gives a small amount of science, a large amount of pseudo-scientific pontificating and a very large amount of Indian religious mysticism.

If you want to believe in life after death and you are easily taken in by people talking about "astral planes", "higher-level vibrations" and such other undefined gobbledygook then this book is certainly for you.

A test of whether you will like this book and see in it some higher truth is your response to the following: "You are at the centre of the universe because from you the universe extends infinitely in all directions. But matey-boy over there is also at the centre of the universe because from him the universe extends infinitely in all directions. If you are both at the centre of the universe then you must both be in the same place. By extension, all parts of the universe are in the same place."

Now, if you find that bit of logic from the book interesting, and revealing of a truth about the universe, then you will no doubt like this book, start believing in life after death if you don't already and come back and award the book four or five stars on Amazon. You'll also realise that a similar argument means all of the past and future history of the universe happens at the same time and all numbers on the number line must hold the same value. Remarkable. Oops: that's maths down the drain.

However, if you find these conclusions just a trifle hard to take, whether or not you can see the flaws in the reasoning, then you probably won't like this book, and you'll come to the conclusion that every other page in it contains similar hocus-pocus and arm-waving. You'll also probably conclude that if the author is half as clever as he thinks he is, that if he doesn't realise that stuff like this is utter rubbish then he really ought to listen to the first person who points it out to him.

My conclusion? One star. Another charlatan taking money off the gullible.

By the way, among the many great quotes from the book my favourite is "Eternity is not a function of time."
