5.0 out of 5 stars You can always tell the pioneers---they're the ones with arrows in their backs, June 26, 2005
This review is from: The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles (Hardcover)
I am a physician who turns 65 this week. My career was and is punctuated by the harassment one receives when one is challenging medical dogma. When I began doing outpatient surgery, I was called before the Executive Committee of my hospital to explain the "circus" I was involving myself in. When I began to put intraocualar lenses in eyes after cataract surgery, I was fired from my position as Chief of Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery because "Anyone so stupid as to put lenses in eyes has no business teaching residents". When I did the research for the laser used in Lasik, I was told it was unbelievable that anyone could be so stupid as to make incisions across the visual axis of a good eye. Now it is almost malpractice not to do those things!!!!How time changes things.

There are those who are constantly willing to re-examine what they think they know. There are others who cannot deal with the idea that what they were taught might be wrong. One can clearly see that in the reviews above.

Dr. Lipton has clearly challenged what we thought we knew and opened Pandora's box. Scientists have long stated, "If you can't prove it, it doesn't exist." That means that we relegate our belief system to the quality of our measuring devices. Since we couldn't measure things at biological speeds until we got Pentium class computers, we haven't been able to measure biological electronic function for very many years. Lipton has helped refocus us away from the false belief that the body is Newtonian and reductionistic to the reality that the body works at the atomic level where Newton's laws fail and electromagnetic energy rules.

Buy this book---it will change your life if you will measure it against what is real instead of what you were taught.

Thank you for your honesty. The world needs more higher-minded people like you.

When are you going to write your own book? I will buy it for sure...

Thanks for the thoughtful review of this book. It's also interesting to know how your background colors your perspective.

The "pioneers" may take some arrows in the back but the good ones don't whine about as much as Lipton, or for that matter, this reviewer. Arrows or not I'm not aware of any great philosophical work that has concluded with a plea to the reader to sign up for an expensive treatment to which the author has an interest. This is more the realm of expanded infomercial than groundbreaking thought. Let's hope the charlatans take a few arrows along the way too.

"If we have seen far, it's because we have stood on the shoulders of giants", like yourself and physicist David Bohm, Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Don Miguel Ruiz, M.D., Don Carlos Castaneda. The power that moves all things flows through us all. Good luck to all who travel "a path with heart."

Try some Psych-K and see how it makes you feel.

Money is just a congealed energy.

Let go.

Great sentence: "That means that we relegate our belief system to the quality of our measuring devices." Thank you

Thank you for your pioneering spirit. I am 44 and have improved quality of life, from your practice of the placement of intraocular lenses after cateract surgery of both eyes. I agree with your review. Terri-Chapel Hill, NC

Scientists should not say "If you can't prove it, it doesn't exist." They should say, instead, "If it can't be proven, then we do not know if it exists or not." I think many scientiests are saying this, not all, but most do ascribe to this latter statment, and this is fundamentally different in meaning than the former.

What a refreshing point of view -- I totally agree. It seems like such an obvious no-brainer that "if you can't prove it, it doesn't exist" is a ridiculous idea! You're right on target, that it all comes down to the sensitivity of measuring devices. I've been having conversations with skeptics for years on just this subject. It's really good to hear a physician with such an open-minded point of view. And I appreciate your courage in putting yourself in the line of fire, challenging this outmoded system. I wonder if part of the reason that groundbreaking ideas tend to be categorically dismissed is because they might threaten the financial systems that are already in place, benefiting from doing things in the established way... my guess is "probably."
