More About the Author

Dr Manjir Samanta-Laughton MBBS Dip Bio-energy (MD in USA) is an international speaker and author of several books.

She trained as a medical doctor and GP in London. Whilst at medical school she turned from skeptic into mystic when she had an unexpected spiritual awakening - a kundalini experience aged 18 years. Since then she has been on a quest to link ideas in the cutting edge of science with spirituality. She trained as a bio-energy healer with the Plexus Bio-energy institute, now famous for having assisted Michael Flatley with his recent recovery. She also worked as a holistic doctor for the world renowned Bristol Cancer Help Centre.

In 2002 a series of extraordinary events unfolded which led to Manjir leaving the medical profession and entering onto her true path. In 2006 her first book, Punk Science was published by O-books and it has received worldwide acclaim ever since. In it, she described her new cutting-edge theories of cosmology which place black holes at the centre of a conscious creative universe.

In 2008 she joined the prestigious Hokkaido Science Symposium in Japan with just seven other scientists and philosophers from around the world.
2009 sees the publication of her second book, The Genius Groove which further describes the connections between cutting-edge ideas in science and how they can be applied to your life and help you find your true path, just as Manjir has found hers.

A forthcoming project includes a book, code-named The Real Deal which will bring to-gether science and ancient philosophies a well as Manjir's series of mystical visions in-volving Mary Magdalene dating back to 2001, which have never before been revealed to the public.

Manjir is a popular speaker and frequently appears in the UK and abroad including at vari-ous universities. She has also been interviewed by many radio and TV stations including the BBC and C4 as well as being a regular guest on Edge Media TV.

She lives with her partner, James in Derbyshire, UK.

This book will become your bible (burden?) of proof to the links between religion, mysticism, and science. It breaks down in everyday language the basics of quantum physics and readily sites its sources at the end of every chapter. The very words 'quantum physics' frightens most people as it conjures up thoughts of long, theoretical mathematic equations. You'll find none of that here, only a direct conversational tone, some modern culture wit and easily digestable facts about recent scientific discoveries and how they correlate with the contents of sacred texts and hidden knowledge. The author ties it all together exceedingly well and I can't imagine how anyone could read this book and not come away with a new level of thinking and perspective on the world around and within themselves. Highly reccommended.

The sysnthesis of science and religion really contributes to opening the mind up to the aspects of nature that cannot be felt or seen. This book helps shake up the classical scientific linear model that is engrained in the Western mind and open our eyes to the unconscious and esoteric widsom of the world. This book help start me on a path of orienting my thoughts more my heart and less with my brain and trying to pay attention to the ineffable aspects of life. If you are a science minded person but trying to get your arms around God.... read it!

I know something about Quantum Physics and hoped to learn more. However, "Punk Science" is just a lot of words with very little content. I read about 30 pages into the book and didn't learn anything. So, I started skipping around in later pages, hoping to find some meat. Nothing--the words just didn't connect with me. I've found another book that is teaching me about Quantum Physics, "The Self-Aware Universe" by Amit Goswami, a quantum physicist who has also written a textbook on Quantum Physics. This book gets difficult about 100 pages in, and I'm having to do some research on the Internet, but I think I'll actually have a basic understanding when I'm finished. "The Self-Aware Universe" also takes the point of view of "Punk Science," that Quantum Physics has implications for consciousness and philosophy.

Manjir Samanta-Laughton's "Punk Science" is worth five stars. I recommend her book because of its groundbreaking insights, and this is despite of the book's significant weaknesses that I will also point out.

Samanta-Laughton (page 13) writes: "The frontiers of science are revealing that the universe behaves as the mystics have told us all along." That I agree with this remarkable observation explains why I am willing to forgive the weaknesses of "Punk Science". Samanta-Laughton tells us that it is consciousness that has been omitted from a scientific world-view that sees the world only as material interactions. She (page 24) writes that, "science has led us full circle: by eliminating all discussion of consciousness, it has found that consciousness is inevitable in our universe and is inherent in all." Consciousness is hard-wired into the fabric of space-time!

Samanta-Laughton (page 38) writes: "Not only do reductionist biologists have difficulty explaining the self-organizing nature of the cell, they have also failed to find satisfactory answers to how life first began. This fact is not apparent from the public image of science, which gives the impression that we know how life began and can continue with cloning sheep." And while referring to Bruce Lipton's work and others, she (page 59) writes: "We used to think of ourselves as victims of our inherited genes and the luck of the draw. Now we are realizing that we can learn to manage our beliefs and perceptions and therefore our own biology." Perception has found an essential ingredient in our biology, and it is the perception horizon that connects directly with consciousness (as we will see).

Samanta-Laughton (page 64) writes - "Every atom, molecule, bacteria and cell is inherently intelligent.

Format: Paperback
This book will take you leaping and bounding through many of the latest findings in quantum physics. Woven throughout are references to ancient spiritual descriptions of cosmology from the Tao, Gnostic Gospels, and yogic chakra system, illustrating the congruence between those teachings with what we think we know about the nature of creation. The author's insight into the missing link between today's science and spirituality draws these elements together in a new and thought-provoking way.

Not being a scientist, I can recommend this work to any layperson interested in a generalized overview of quantum physics, spiritual teachings, energetic healing and the integration amongst them. The author, a medical doctor, is obviously sincere, humble and curious in her seeking for answers and reconcilation between reductionist science, new science, and spirituality. In presenting her research and findings in an easy-to-read book, she proposes, and supplies evidence for, a new model of the universe's creation, a model different from creationism, big bang theory, and new age beliefs. With her ample bibliography, a reader can easily pursue more study of this relevant and eternal question.
