Book Review submitted by: Stephen J. Hage, SteveH9697@aol.com
In his first book, the Dimensional Structure of Consciousness, Samuel Avery reveals a new paradigm for understanding our experience, in space and time, as multicellular organisms. He does this by walking us through the physics that underlies the structure of the paradigm and makes his ideas intelligible to those who have a good working knowledge of physics, relativity theory and quantum mechanics.
For those with little or no exposure to physics, relativity theory or quantum mechanics, The Dimensional Structure of Consciousness will be a tough slog but worth the effort.
In his second book, Transcendence of the Western Mind, Avery revisits the paradigm of the dimensional structure of consciousness but softens his approach by relating ideas physicists understand intuitively, like rotating axes of space and time orthogonally by relating them to things non-physicists do every day, like walking from your living room to your bedroom. And, continuing this softer approach he helps the reader understand the different relationships between the five realms of perceptual consciousness, seeing, hearing, smell, taste and touch and how their coordination in space-time actually creates the world.
He deals with the mind, and meditation, the self and being and introduces us to a sixth realm of consciousness--observational consciousness--that exists in a dimension of its own--order.
In Buddha and the Quantum, Avery, once again, revisits the principles which underlie the paradigm he has created--the dimensional structure of consciousness--by approaching it in a way that is even softer than the approach he used in Transcendence of the Western Mind. By providing detailed descriptions of certain meditative experiences he is able to relate those experiences to the principles which underlie how consciousness is structured and why we experience the world the way we do.
He further refines and clarifies concepts dealt with in the previous books like the photon screen and the quantum screen making them easier to understand. Here is an example:
"Now, still watching the subtle sensations in your field of vision, open your eyes. Concentrate on the whole body as you see part of it become light. This may take a few tries. The subtle sensations that you see crackling like static electricity in front of your eyes suddenly become tiny points of color arranged in space. They fall into a multidimensional grid pattern with each point of light at its own distinct location. Shapes and patterns of light form with crisp lines and sharp edges. Unlike shapes in the body, each visual pattern begins and ends at a precise location and each has its own clear identity. There is little overlap among them and there is empty space between them. Most of the space you see remains unoccupied, as if it were potential perception waiting to be filled with actual perception.
This is the photon screen. The screen is not the photons; it is the grid pattern they fall into. It is the wholeness of multi-cellular consciousness that cannot be reduced to cellular consciousness. It is not in space; it is space."
With Buddha and the Quantum, as he did with his first two books, Samuel Avery lifts the veil even further allowing us to not only glimpse but also actually see how the universe works and why we experience it in the ways we do.
What I enjoy most about reading Avery is his insights expand my mind and, as I reread his thoughts and think about them deeply, my own mind is blown to smithereens. It is a truly exhilarating intellectual experience.
If you find any of this at all interesting, I recommend you read Buddha and the Quantum first. Then read Transcendence of the Western Mind and, if you dare, then read The Dimensional Structure of Consciousness and be prepared to have your own mind blown to smithereens.
