Editorial Reviews


Dr. David Parrish has constructed a shining and indestructible edifice out of fascinating and brilliant concepts. His logic is impeccable and his insights are profound. If you want a hundred sound reasons to open your heart to the Divine, READ THIS BOOK. -- Hugh Prather, author of The Little Book of Letting Go

About the Author

David Parrish, M. D., is a Freudian psychoanalyst who has researched developing consciousness in both early-child and adult development. He has studied quantum physics, psychology, and philosophy, and teaches in several of these areas. He began studying medicine in 1955, psychology and neurology in 1956, and psychosomatic medicine in 1958.

Parrish has an undergraduate degree in physics, and has done postgraduate studies both nationally and internationally in neurology and endocrinology. He also has had extensive hospice experience.

David Parrish's adult life has been shaped by both his professional commitment to science and medicine and his driving curiosity regarding metaphysics and expanding human consciousness. His research has resulted in dialogues with many of the philosophical, scientific, and spiritual thinkers of our time--among them, Richard Feynman, Kenneth Waprick, David Hawkins, and Ken Wilbur.

Dr. Parrish lives in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Format: Paperback
This book offers a look at metaphysics from a very unique perspective. I have always been a big fan of U.S. Andersen's writings about the important relationship between our conscious and sub-conscious. Because I know Dr. Parrish personally, I was very interested in reading his interpretation on the subject.

This book a wide range of topics ranging from an overview of psychoanalysis and cognitive therapy to mysticism and quantum physics. He then ties them together in a way that makes a compelling case that, yes, we do live in an orderly and friendly universe. Whether or not we acknowledge this fact is a matter of personal choice, and this book offers help in how to make that choice.

Warning: This book is not an easy read that can be devoured quickly. Many portions need to be read and re-read, perhaps several times, before the message is fully absorbed. But I believe the reader will find the time to be well spent.

David Parrish says that the fields of psychology, mysticism, and quantum physics have all contributed to the notion that the reality we percieve in the world is not an objective reality, but a reality which is colored by our beliefs and our conditioning. Modern psychology, mysticism, and quantum theory have all elucidated the fact that we are particpants in creating and altering our reality.

Parrish says that modern psychology has shed the Freudian notion that our behavior is determined by subconscious obsessions and desires, and external events that are beyond our control. In its place existential and cognitive psychology have for the most part disavowed the subconscious mind and have embraced a more seamless and holistic consciousness, a consciousness of freedom in which we are responsible for our own acts.

Likewise, mysticism, which can be defined as a pathway to understanding reality through a "transcendence" or direct experience, has for centuries taught us that the subject/object duality is a grand illusion, and quantum theory has once and for all demonstrated through theory and experiment that in the subatomic realm there are non-local connections between particles that have been intertwined.

Parrish does an admirable job of drawing toghether the three disciplines, especially psychology and mysticism, however, his understanding of the principles of physics are a bit disappointing for the knowledgeable reader when he attempts to describe such subjects as entropy, the EPR proposal, Bell's theorem of inequality, and some of the basic tenants of quantum theory.

For example, he defines entropy as a state of chaos when, in fact, entropy is simply the tendency of systems to move toward equilibrium--a system's most probable state.

27 of 29 people found the following review helpful By Douglas J. Dickson on August 2, 2006
Format: Paperback
Nothing I See Means Anything is, perhaps, one of the most important books I've ever read.

The concepts taught create a paradigm shift in consciousness and at times I found myself re-reading chapters to comprehend the incredible amount of truth I found within. The book is intelligently written by an accomplished physician who shares his understanding of the world and universe surrounding us. The mind once stretched to comprehend this material will never see the world the same again.

Dr. Parrish begins by reviewing the basic schools of psychology and eloquently explains the focus of each on the mind. He recognizes the diferences between them and then explains how each of them relate to the universe as we perceive it.

Next he moves to explaining quantum physics, the mathmatics of Einstein, to reveal the true nature of the universe and our place within the mind of God.

Perhaps the book should have been titled, "A Brief History of the Mind," as Parrish's keen insight should earn him consideration as the Stephen Hawking of the Spiritual Universe.

19 of 23 people found the following review helpful By John R. Dungan MD on October 8, 2006
Format: Paperback
I have always on one level thought that the matters discussed here are fictions based upon wishful thinking. Dr. Parrish does not prove me wrong, but he certainly demonstrates that I cannot any more be certain of my position. He agrees that that the universe seems as if it is illogical and without meaning. The earth can feel like an asylum or interminable obstacle course, and this can ingender in people considerable anxiety and fear. Parrish does not say that God made this planet--for then it might be a better place--but that it was made by the energies of its inhabitants as a place to hide from God, whom we fear by mistake, by projecting onto him our own guilt and repression. We ourselves, however, are actually small parts of God's mind. Dr. Parrish invites us therefore to quiet our worried minds in meditation and to listen for guidance.

He believes that we can see the world differently, in celestial gentleness, but this takes significant perceptual change and practice. The collective result of this change in behavior is an upwelling of caring, empathy, and lives lived ethically. Dr. Parrish provides the intellectual underpinnings to the arguments put forth by the ancient and modern thinkers who favor spirituality, peace, mediation, and caring.

David Parrish, M.D. is a Freudian psychoanalyst and endocrinologist. In "Nothing I See Means Anything" he explores the limitations of existentialism and our understanding of consciousness to integrate concepts from three fields: psychology, quantum physics and mysticism. In a chapter entitled "The Emerging Holoverse" he makes this interesting observation: "This scientific paradigm, in which all physical phenomena can be reduced to the mechanics of their elementary units, has been very successful and has led to many important discoveries. However, there gradually developed a growing dissatisfaction with the ideas of separation. These ideas were being gradually replaced with a feeling that the whole was much greater than the sum of its parts. While analysis and reduction are helpful, twentieth-century physics has become increasingly inclined toward an integrated and unified field approach to problem solving."

Parrish frequently cites physicist David Bohm's concept of the "implicate order" and his conviction that "we are in the middle of such phenomena by virtue of the time-space continuum, enfolded holographically in the universe, or holoverse. Other authors have explored Bohm's ideas: Talbot (The Holographic Universe) Radin (Entangled Minds) and Laszlo (Science and the Aksashic Field) come to mind. What Parrish brings to the party is his perspective from psychology, for example: "The existentialist views the traditional concept of consciousness as a human process in which self-awareness imposes an illusion of distance between oneself and the object of one's focus, causing a sense of separation from events and objects.
