Format: Paperback
Dr. Banerji's challenged me to look at the world through an entirely different lens.I do not believe in the widely accepted concept of God as a supreme being: Banerji does not either, but he encouraged me to view life in a more spiritual manner by defining "God" as a universal consciousness present in morphogenetic fields.

As an atheist, I have always placed a lot of trust in science and its progress. However I had never considered modern (and ancient) science as having a very materialistic foundation. Banerji suggests that we can begin shifting away from the materialism in our society and toward a more ethical social order when scientists agree to broaden their method of experimentation and remain open to the existence of non-matter based phenomena.

The book, though intelligently argued, is far from incoherent textbook jabber. Rather, Banerji takes a "fireside chat" approach to his words, making his arguments all the more compelling and personal.

Dr. Banerji presented a layman-friendly portrayal of the history of science. The new thing in the book was his "Law of Consensus" which incorporated morality with science. An interesting read.

Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Banerji's book. His discussion of science, society and the spirit challenged me to think about scientific concepts in a more complicated, open ended way. His critical analysis of the intersection between the scientific and spiritual worlds really pushes readers to think about reality.
