Die modernen Paradoxien der Wissenschaft lassen sich lösen - wenn man annimmt, dass das Universum nicht aus Materie, sondern aus Bewusstsein besteht. Amit Goswami zeigt in diesem längst zum Klassiker gewordenen Buch, dass die Verbindung zwischen den Erkenntnissen der modernen Wissenschaft, etwa der Quantenphysik, und den uralten spirituellen Traditionen des Ostens auf ein neues, revolutionäres Weltbild hinausläuft. Das Universum ist zielgerichtet, sinn- und zweckvoll.

On October 21, 2004 Jason Apollo Voss had a true epiphany: there was going to be a near-collapse on Wall Street and he should retire to exclusively pursue a spiritual practice. In electing to honor his vision he gave up a career in which the mutual fund he co-managed bested the NASDAQ by 77.0%, the S&P 500 by 49.1%, and the DJIA by 34.9%. Most of this success came from a detailed, scientific understanding of the right brain and its capacity for creative and intuitive thought. These secrets and their real world application are the specific focus and passion of the Intuitive Investor. Much more than just a book about investing, The Intuitive Investor is also a guide to healthy, mindful living. Scarcely have money, mind and spirit been brought together so potently.

The Conscious Mind and the Material World

On Psi, the Soul and the Self

Author: Douglas M. Stokes

Publisher: McFarland

ISBN: 0786487526

Page: 232

What makes us who we are? From a scientific viewpoint, any individual’s existence is improbable at best. Consciousness as an actuality is inarguable; its nature, however, remains elusive. This work argues the view of self as a field of pure consciousness, debating the existence of a continuing self and drawing conclusions about this entity and its relation to the physical body and the physical world. Beginning with an exploration of the relationship between mind and matter, it discusses ostensible psi phenomena such as extra-sensory perception and psychokinesis and their implications for our understanding of the mind and the cosmos. Additional topics include the perennial mind-body problem; the role of consciousness in quantum mechanics (and conversely the role of quantum mechanics in the study of consciousness); the anthropic principle; and evidence for Intelligent Design. Quasi-religious questions such as the survival of consciousness after death are also addressed.

The 12 interdisciplinary essays in this volume investigate the role of the imagination in the rise of modernity during the process of antiquity’s transformation. Two essential connections between imagination and transformation form the basis of inquiry. While it is possible to read today’s understanding of imagination as the outcome of a transformation of antiquity, imagination also represents a key force in fueling the transformation process.

Die Zukunft Gottes

Eine praktische Annäherung an die Spiritualität für unsere Zeit

Kann Gott in einem skeptischen Zeitalter wiederbelebt werden? Was wäre nötig, um den Menschen ein spirituelles Leben zu geben, kraftvoller als alles, was es in der Vergangenheit je gab? Deepak Chopra greift diese Fragen mit Eloquenz und Tiefe in seinem neuen Buch auf. Sein überzeugender Rat: Gott an der Quelle des menschlichen Bewusstseins zu suchen. Er findet sich in jedem von uns selbst und mit ihm auch die Kraft, das eigene Leben zu verwandeln. Gott ist in Schwierigkeiten. Mit dem Aufstieg des militanten Atheismus, einer aggressiv-polemischen Bewegung angeführt von Richard Dawkins, haben viele Menschen resigniert und sich der Idee gebeugt, dass Gott ein überholter Mythos in der modernen Welt sei. Die Argumente scheinen zu stark. Doch tief in sich spüren sie eine andere Wahrheit und die unerschütterliche Sehnsucht nach höherem Sinn, nach einer Gegenwart Gottes. Deepak Chopra widerspricht den Argumenten jener atheistischen Bewegung mit Kompetenz und Leidenschaft. Vielmehr sieht er im Hier und Jetzt die perfekte Zeit für eine neue Spiritualität, die vor allem eines sein sollte: verlässliche Erkenntnis einer höheren Wirklichkeit. Indem er einen Weg zu Gott skizziert, der den Unglauben zu einem ersten Schritt des Erwachens macht, zeigt Chopra uns, dass die Krise des Glaubens wie Feuer ist, durch das wir hindurch müssen auf dem Weg zur Kraft, Wahrheit und Liebe. Auch in der Wissenschaft haben sich längst Dogmen etabliert, an denen zu rütteln das Ende der eigenen Karriere bedeuten kann. "Doch im Gegensatz zu religiösen Fundamentalisten sind sich wissenschaftliche Ideologen nicht bewusst, dass ihre Weltsicht allein auf Glauben basiert. Sie meinen, sie kennen die Wahrheit. Sie glauben, die Wissenschaft habe die wesentlichen Fragen bereits gelöst." So hat Szientismus die schädliche Wirkung, jede Art von Denken und Forschung zu unterdrücken, die nicht den etablierten Richtlinien entspricht. "Der Glaube muss zum Wohle aller bewahrt werden", schreibt Chopra.

The Cellar Incident

Marge never believed in in the existence of pure evil. Certainly, she placed no credence in the idea of supernatural evil, such as powerful spirits or entities from elsewhere that are capable of entering our material realm and committing horrific acts. Such fanciful notions were not part of her worldview. As Marge saw it, we already had enough vicious, hyper greedy and power hungry people in our real world, including any number of natural calamities that was enough to deal with. Who wanted to be concerned about being beset by evil imports from some netherworld? One evening in early October, Marge and four of her friends, all college seniors, set off to look through an old, vacant farmhouse as a possible site for their Halloween party. As the three young men are examining the second floor of the house, they are interrupted by the hysterical calling out to them by one of the two young female companions. She insists, rather incoherently, that something awful has happened in the cellar. She seems to think what happened was caused by some kind of fantastic, monstrous thing, which suddenly appeared out of nowhere. Of course, her friends assume she is mistaken. As the group, all go to check out the cellar, they attempt to calm her by suggesting explanations that are more logical. Marge, the other female member of this group, is also aware that something very extraordinary did happen, and she too is shaken to the core. However, she remains silent about what she experienced. Why? When put on the spot, she draws a blank. She cant think how to explain what she saw, heard and felt, without revealing the too humiliating truth of how she knows this: because she was eavesdropping at the cellar door. Had she not eavesdropped, Marge realizes she could have remained blithely unaware of the cellar incident, which is by far, what she would have preferred. She will later desperately look for logical, rational explanations for what seemed to have happened in that cellar. However, she will find further evidence that will only support what Marge didnt want to believe. Indeed, that house is host to some evil alien thing that doesnt belong in this world. The Cellar Incident will shatter Marges unquestioned concepts of what constitutes reality. The experience will haunt her dreams, torment her thoughts and force her to rethink her views on everything.

"Spirituality in Nursing is thought provoking and Barnum offers some excellent material and food for thought."--Journal of Christian Nursing "This is a very thought-provoking book that asks many questions, often without answers. It could be used in an undergraduate or graduate course on spirituality or death and dying, or as in-service material in hospitals and other healthcare agencies. A very interesting chapter discusses near death experiences (NDE), a phenomenon that has begun to be accepted and has garnered more study."Score: 95, 4 stars --Doody's Can nurses be expected to deliver spiritual care? Should nursing claim healing as part of its mission? Should spiritual care be taught in nursing education? What do recent brain studies teach us about spirituality? Exploring these questions and many more, this new edition of Spirituality in Nursing provides a wealth of insight into current challenges presented to both practicing nurses and students. Newly updated, revised, and expanded, this third edition examines spirituality in nursing from an interdisciplinary perspective, drawing from theoretical, historical, religious, psychological, and even physiological contexts. In her thought-provoking exploration of this sometimes controversial topic, Dr. Barnum traces nursing's involvement with spirituality from its historical ties with religion to the current interest in new age and alternative health methods. The chapters offer engaging discussions of important topics such as the distinction between spirituality and religion, spirituality and research, humanism, and death and dying. Taking a problem-solving approach, this book serves as an invaluable guide to understanding the complex and expanding role of spirituality in nursing.

Rationalist Spirituality

An exploration of the meaning of life and existence informed by logic and science

Why does the universe exist and what are you supposed to do in it? This question has been addressed by religions since time immemorial, but popular answers often fail to account for obvious aspects of reality. Indeed, if God knows everything, why do we need to learn through pain and suffering? If God is omnipotent, why are we needed to do good? If the universe is fundamentally good, why are wars, crime, and injustice all around us? In modern society, orthodox science takes the rational high-ground and tackles these contradictions by denying the very need for, and the existence of, meaning. Indeed, many of us implicitly accept the notion that rationality somehow contradicts spirituality. That is a modern human tragedy, not only for its insidiousness, but for the fact that it is simply not true. In this book, the author constructs a coherent and logical argument for the meaning of existence, informed by science itself. A framework is laid out wherein all aspects of human existence have a logical, coh

Sex, Plants, and the Evolution of the Noosphere

Page: 336

View: 1285

Are humans unwitting partners in evolution with psychedelic plants? Darwin�s Pharmacy shows they are by weaving the evolutionary theory of sexual selection and the study of rhetoric together with the science and literature of psychedelic drugs. Long suppressed as components of the human tool kit, psychedelic plants can be usefully modeled as �eloquence adjuncts� that intensify a crucial component of sexual selection in humans: discourse. Psychedelic plants seduce us to interact with them, building an ongoing interdependence: rhetoric as evolutionary mechanism. In doing so, they engage our awareness of the noosphere, or thinking stratum of the earth. The realization that the human organism is part of an interconnected ecosystem is an apprehension of immanence that could ultimately benefit the planet and its inhabitants. To explore the rhetoric of the psychedelic experience and its significance to evolution, Doyle takes his readers on an epic journey through the writings of William Burroughs and Kary Mullis, the work of ethnobotanists and anthropologists, and anonymous trip reports. The results offer surprising insights into evolutionary theory, the war on drugs, the internet, and the nature of human consciousness itself.

A Physicist's Resolution Between Darwinism and Intelligent Design

By denying evolution altogether, says quantum physicist Amit Goswani, intelligent design believers fly in the face of scientific data. But the idea of intelligent design does contain substance that neo-Darwinists cannot ignore. Goswani posits that consciousness, not matter, is the primary force in the universe. Biology must come to terms with feeling, meaning, and the purposefulness of life, as well as with the idea of a designer. What’s more, reconciling the question of life’s purposefulness and the existence of the designer with neo-Darwinism also answers many other difficult questions. The result is a paradigm shift for biology and the vision of a coherent whole that Goswami calls "science within consciousness." In this timely, important book, the author offers clear arguments supported by the findings of quantum physics that represent a major step in resolving controversies between science and religion.
