An outstanding collection of in-depth interviews and insights. Glad to be part of it. Ervin Laszlo, ervinlaszlo.com/
"Science grows at the edges, and Eva Herr's CONSCIOUSNESS is on the edge. This book contains information that will force a re-writing of the textbooks in psychology and neuroscience. This is your peek into the future. Don't pass it up."
Larry Dossey, M.D., author of The Power of Premonitions and Reinventing Medicine
"This provocative book consists of interviews with eight men and two women, all of whom are expanding the boundaries of reality. Eva Herr asks these visionary scientists the exact questions that her readers would ask, and their answers portray a universe more incredible and more wondrous than anything taught in today's schools."
Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Alan Watts Professor of Psychology, Saybrook University, co-author of Personal Mythology
"The multi-dimensional nature of consciousness remains one of the greatest philosophical questions, leaving us still to differentiate its many aspects, including its connection with soul and conscientiousness. Indeed, consciousness remains the essence of being and the rich dialogue in Eva's book is a fascinating addition to this question of the ages."
C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., president, Holos Institutes of Health, Professor Emeritus of Energy Medicine, Holos University Graduate Seminary, author of Energy Medicine: The Future of Health
"Eva has written a book that not only catches the imagination but also defines the issues that are critical in understanding and managing our future. A MUST READ!"
Dannion Brinkley, author of the international bestseller Saved by the Light and At Peace in the Light. Made into a television motion picture, Saved by the Light has been seen in over 30 countries.
From the Author
I am but a woman who, like many, had a mystical experience after the occurrence of a very dark night of the soul. The full story can be referenced in my first book, Agape: The Intent of the Soul. A severe "dark night" followed by sudden illumination also seems to be a theme shared by everyone I have interviewed.
In my case, the experience was completely unexpected and brought with it a sudden and powerful mystical experience that occurred literally overnight while I slept. It instantaneously and radically changed what I had always known my life to be into something totally different. Prior to this event, I was caught up in the dogma of materialism, vanity, and self-consumed ideations. When I awoke the next morning, I was a different person with a different agenda in life . . . to fully understand consciousness--the God force--behind everything that exists. Accompanying this was a powerful but simplistic idea of agape--the love for one's fellow man as one loves oneself, because we are all one. I no longer cared about materialism, vanity, and my "me-me" attitude. From that moment on, my focus was no longer what others could do for me, but what could I do for others. This was a new approach for me.
I awoke with knowledge of cutting-edge science and alternative medicine that I had not previously known, plus an ability to accurately detect illness in others, often years in the future. Where did this come from? What did it mean? Was my mind playing tricks, or was the knowledge I received real? Was it in any form provable from a scientific perspective, and if it was, what did it mean to me, the people I know, and to the world?
A sudden, unquenchable thirst for knowledge drove me to seek what I could find regarding such matters; so, with a background in litigation and research skills, I set out to find the most factually based information available, from some of the most respected scientists in the world today. I have set forth my discoveries in this book.
What was the purpose of this mystical experience I had? What caused it to happen? What did it do? Is there more than one kind? How is it that consciousness conveys information from Big Mind (Source, God, The Force . . . whatever you want to call it) to little mind--the "who we are every day."
This book emerged by way of much contemplation and many long hours of conversations between my dear friend, Roy Scruggs, Ph.D., and me over the course of many years, focusing on the topic of the science of consciousness. Roy was a very interesting man; very educated in the physical sciences, aero engineering, as well as the meta-sciences, such as quantum mechanics and metaphysics. He was a very spiritual, astro-engineer who worked on the Apollo Project. Bottom line: he knew science and spiritual mysticism inside out.
I searched the globe over for the most brilliant and knowledgeable minds existing in the world today. The pre-requisite was that whatever they presented in our interview had to be of a sound scientific basis. This is where Roy came in. He and I sat for hundreds of hours, going over the materials presented by each scientist, whom I would then question on their views during my weekly radio show Infinite Consciousness. I asked the hard questions. I didn't want to know what they thought I wanted to know that they knew. What were their positions on certain topics, and why did they stand so firmly on these positions? What research was available to prove what they had come to believe?
One thing I learned from my experience is that we are one with everything . . . that there is in fact no matter on the quantum level . . . meaning, that we are not separate from anything else in existence. I began to wonder if science had proven this, or if science even thought they were on the horizon of proving it. How could it be that there is no separation between us and everything else? It all boils down to the fact that matter does not exist on the quantum level. So my search began for the facts.
It has been my honor to have had the opportunity to study and learn with some of the most brilliant minds of our times. Over the past decade I have studied, meditated, and prepared for these questions of such great importance, and conducted numerous interviews with these remarkable scientists through my radio show. I think you will find the result to be some of the most astonishing and thought-provoking material you will ever read and I hope that it will give you hope for your life and the future of our children, our planet and the generations to come.

Eva Herr belongs to the Idealist camp. Organized as a series of interviews with cutting edge thinkers, her book, 'Consciousness: Bridging the Gap between Conventional Science and the New Super Science,' seeks to utilize some of the recent findings of quantum physics to challenge the conventional Materialist view of consciousness. Within these pages, interested readers can find the speculative thoughts of Amit Goswami, Dean Radin, Ervin Laszlo, along with interviews of a host of other visionary thinkers.
Not present is the Materialist view, which would include the perspectives of neuroscientists such as Antonio Damasio or philosophers including Danniel Dennet. Readers seeking an objective overview of the nature of consciousness will miss this perspective. This is the book's major critique. A reader may feel the book is biased toward one perspective. Readers seeking an introductory overview of consciousness should look elsewhere.
Despite it's hypothetical features, 'Consciousness: Bridging the Gap,' was a compelling read that challenges the current scientific paradigm. Readers who seek cutting edge thinking will definitely find it here.
It attempts to help us understand what is "next" after discovery of the energy that holds everything together and connected, from atoms to the entire universe. It was interesting to hear the difference definitions of consciousness and how it relates to awareness and intent.
There is nothing wrong with seeking the nature of reality and consciousness, but unfortunately it's a daunting subject due to its very nature. If Consciousness is basically All, then how does science tease out the true nature of reality by "objective" means? This book does very little to enlighten us to any progress in that direction.
