Reading The Physics of God, I learned that meditation moves our brains from alpha-waves to theta-waves, which activate imagination, creativity, planning, concentration, morals, manners, and the opportunity for transcendence; offering a much richer space than I realized possible in my meditation practice.
AND, The Physics of God raises a myriad of questions …. and confirmation of truths I find difficult to comprehend. At the core, there is considerable evidence that an object does not truly exist until it is perceived by consciousness.
In the 20th century, many physicists came to the conclusion that consciousness was the underlying foundation of reality, substantiated and coalesced as the "intelligent-observer paradox". Intelligent Consciousness creates matter. This, of course, is very challenging to truly grasp. This is an argument for a God of some sort …. a Divine Intelligent Consciousness. Read this short, clear book to gain a deeper level of understanding than I can begin to explore here.
And, still, I am left with a sense of “so what?” How does this knowledge impact my life, or those around me? It is interesting, yes. And to what end? What insight? What manifestation? Selbie argues that only science and religion together explain “Reality.” I would love to hear your thoughts and questions after you have read this decidedly mind-expanding and thought-provoking book.
