The Wu Li Master dances with his student. The Wu Li Master does not teach, but the student learns. The Wu Li Master always begins at the center, the heart of the matter.... This book deals not with knowledge, which is always past tense anyway, but with imagination, which is physics come alive, which is Wu Li.... Most people believe that physicists are explaining the world. Some physicists even believe that, but the Wu Li Masters know that they are only dancing with it.
The "new physics" of Zukav's 1979 book comprises quantum theory, particle physics, and relativity. Even as these theories age they haven't percolated all that far into the collective consciousness; they're too far removed from mundane human experience not to need introduction. The Dancing Wu Li Masters remains an engaging, accessible way to meet the most profound and mind-altering insights of 20th-century science. --Mary Ellen Curtin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
THE DANCING WU LI MASTERS is not is a book on Eastern mysticism.
If you're looking for meaning in your world, are curious about your world, or just want to know more about how your world works, this is the book for you.

But there are many logical inconsistencies in the book. It is a mix of pseudo-science and New Age religion. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Christopher H.
