Physics, Philosophy & The Dimensional Structure of Consciousness
Author: Stephen J. Hage
Publisher: Algora Publishing
Consciousness is dimensionally structured. Nobody has consciousness. Instead, everybody is in consciousness. Building on the work of Samuel Avery, the book presents a new myth and paradigm for understanding consciousness, exploring the connections between consciousness, physics, quantum mechanics, myth, and meditation.

After so many years of laboring within the confined university walls of academe, retirement becomes both a threat and a challenge. Never before did you have the time to follow up on the few occasions serendipitous enlightenments flashed across your path. Tenure and cost-efficient, pragmatic considerations always kept you away. But there is no excuse now. Is it worth it? I would like to invite all those studious of the mind/brain interface puzzle to share our insights. What follows represents an ongoing series of reflections on the ontology of consciousness based on some intuitions on life, language acquisition, and survival strategies to accommodate the biological, psychic, and social imperatives of human life in its ecological niche, thus the BPS model.

The concept of a First Cause of all reality or God can be arrived at through science, metaphysics, and philosophy. This book establishes unification by defining parameters of equivalency through mathematics with the conclusion that all reality is consciousness. The keys to the universe and description of equivalency are defined. God can be known though works in creation when the true nature of being is understood, truth known, and the universe becomes an analogy of truth. All reality is consciousness established through patterns of hierarchy and symmetry proceeding from God. Action is known by equivalency and love is received in Creation.

Consciousness, Quantum Physics, and the Fifth Dimension
Author: Marc Seifer
Publisher: Inner Traditions / Bear & Co
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
The space-time continuum of physics ignores the realm of the mind. But consciousness is unconfined by space or time and represents a higher organizing principle, a fifth dimension, that transcends the speed of light. Marc Seifer examines relativity, ether theory, precognition, telepathy, and synchronicity, all from the perspective of the conscious universe.
Leben wir in der Zeit oder lebt die Zeit vielleicht nur in uns? Alle theoretischen Physiker von Weltrang, die den großen und kleinen Kräften des Universums nachspüren, beschäftigen sich immer wieder mit der entscheidenden Frage, was Zeit ist. Wenn ihre großen Modelle die Zeit zur Erklärung des Elementaren nicht mehr brauchen, wie kommt es dann, dass sie für unser Leben so wichtig ist? Geht es wirklich ohne sie? Carlo Rovelli gibt in diesem Buch überraschende Antworten. Er nimmt uns mit auf eine Reise durch unsere Vorstellungen der von der Zeit und spürt ihren Regeln und Rätseln nach. Ein großes, packend geschriebenes Lese-Abenteuer, ein würdiger Nachfolger des Welt-Bestsellers "Sieben kurze Lektionen über Physik".

Since the late 1970s, crop circles have been appearing in grain fields all across the globe, but especially in Southern England. These large graphic designs are created through the contrast between the light-catching, flattened grain, swirled to the ground, and the darker grain left standing in the fields. The beauty of the art can be seen in its entirety from the air, and such space-filling, dynamic patterns are evidence that creative, intelligent CircleMakers are intentionally marking the Earth. But why they do it and who they are remain mysteries. In "Crop Circles," Mary Nelson speculates on possible answers to these questions.Nelson takes the view that crop circles are a new art form. The record of civilization can be read through a study of art history. Today, CircleMakers are using land as a canvas. She asks, what do crop circles reveal about our own period? Are these huge artworks alerting us to increase our awareness, to follow an elevated path, more spiritual and less material, more in harmony and less adversarial, more of a circle than a box, so that humanity can at last fulfill its evolutionary destiny instead of destroying itself?In "Crop Circles" Nelson combines the viewpoint of an art historian with that of artist and seeker to probe the connection between the crop formations and developments in contemporary thought.There is also a special hardcover edition available with a linen slipcase and accompanied by original artwork by Mary Carroll Nelson.
Die Verbindung von Musik und der Struktur des Universums
Author: Stephon H.S. Alexander
Publisher: BASTEI LÜBBE
Schon vor mehr als fünfzig Jahren begeisterte sich John Coltrane für das Universum. Inspiriert von Albert Einstein, hatte Coltrane Physik und Geometrie in den Mittelpunkt seiner Musik gesetzt. Diese Idee faszinierte den Physiker und Jazzmusiker Stephon Alexander seit frühester Jugend. Er zeigt anhand des Jazz, wie die größten Fragen der Physik über die Beschaffenheit des Universums beantwortet werden können. The Jazz of Physics fasziniert und begeistert jeden, der sich für die Geheimnisse unseres Universums, der Musik und des Lebens interessiert.
Steen Brock paints a cross-disciplinary picture of the philosophical and scientific background for the rise of the quantum theory. He accounts for the unity of Kantian metaphysics of Nature and the Helmholtzian principles and Hamiltonian methods of modern pre-quantum physics. Brock shows how Planck's vision of a generalization of classical physics implies that the original quantum mechanics of Heisenberg can be regarded as a successful attempt to maintain this modern unity of physics.However, for Niels Bohr, the unity of science and metaphysics did not end in the world of physics. The development of quantum physics had general implications both for other sciences and for various philosophical issues. Brock discusses these matters in respect to recent topics within the philosophy of science and major interpretations of Bohr's ideas.Brock offers an invitation to any intellectual, to follow a long and winding route of thought which, in the end, will take you to Bohr's ideas of complementarity, culture and Spirit.
The relation of the eternal God to time and history has perplexed theologians and philosophers for centuries. How can Christians describe a God who is distinct from time but acts within it? This book presents one creative and profound approach to this perennial theme by examining the theology of Karl Barth. Contrary to interpretations of Barth that suggest he held a view of eternity as abstracted from time and history, this comprehensive study suggests that he provides a more complex and fruitful understanding. Rather than defining eternity in a negative relation to time, Barth relates eternity and time with reference to such doctrines as the Trinity and incarnation. This ensures overcoming what he saw as the Babylonian Captivity of an abstract philosophical definition of eternity that developed in the Western tradition. The central argument of the book suggests an analogia trinitaria temporis, a basic analogy between the eternal being of God and God's creating and activity within time. Also, implicit in Barth's view is a narrative view of time, similar to the view of Paul Ricoeur, which unfolds as the Church Dogmatics develops.
