We are where our attention is. We are aware of being hot or cold, hungry or thirsty, sleepy or wide awake, tired or rested, sad or happy, and so on… We seem to be the sum total of our emotions blended by the input of our senses. What happens when our sensory input is cut off? Well—at night we dream. But what if the input from our senses is cut of wholly, utterly, possibly irretrievably, for a days, weeks at a time? This is what this book explores.
This is a story of how a mind can be set free to roam infinite space where time does not exist, while its body lies in a coma, and what it can discover about itself, its being and its becoming. As usual, the reader is awed by the author's cosmic range of thought, global vocabulary, the boldness of his ideas, the potpourri of philosophical sources, and his charming self-revelatory candor. The marvel is that, theoretically, such peregrinations of mind are quite plausible. They are quite within the realm of the laws of physics.
“It’s intriguing to contemplate Law’s interpretations of scripture, ancient poetry and musings, and modern cosmology. An extraordinary puzzle audaciously put together! How he can sustain what is basically a stream of consciousness for 300 spellbinding pages reminds of Mozart’s tour de forces of weaving together four or more counterpoints.” (Kate Jones, Pasadena, USA.)
“It is fascinating to watch a man give up—literally—the world, for the love of a woman!” (Joanne Brown, Montreal, PQ.)
“Never has our subconscious been explored in such depths and discernment. It seems that our conscious mind is but a tip of a twelve-billion-year-old iceberg.” (Jim Mc Laughlin, Calgary, Alta.)
