Wilson concisely explains the major tenets, similarities and differences between a number of different metaphysical perspectives, including near death experience, out of body experience, Jane Roberts's Seth books, a Course in Miracles, reincarnation and past life regression therapy, Michael Newton's Life Between Lives therapy, quantum physics, and more.
He also discusses their implications, and a host of other related, intriguing issues. Although I might quibble a bit with his description of himself as a skeptic (he started out as one, when he first set out on his exhaustive research programme, but with a decidedly open mind), he does adopt a refreshingly objective tone and approach throughout, and his sincerity and earnestness shine through. His goal is to educate, and he does an admirable job of distilling a large amount of information into one, highly readable volume. Thoughtful, entertaining, simply and yet well-written, this book will save you a LOT of time and money if you've not yet read the many works covered, provide a good overview.
If you have read the works, you'll enjoy his analysis and discussion of their various implications and areas of agreement and divergence. I particularly appreciated the many case histories and specific examples provided. In any case, you get a lot of bang for your buck- recommended!
I was writing on some of these same topics and would have included this insightful book..I have learned a few things from Mr. Wilson. I am always grateful for authors who expand my knowledge in such meaningful ways. Mr. Wilson, like all of us, asks the hard questions about what is life, what is a soul what are Near Death experiences..what does science support in the way of life after life, reincarnation, and God (the Source)? He uses science and physics for answers. I believe the Bible was giving us important clues to the nature of God when stating "God is light." Mr. Wilson breaks down that statement based on modern science, and concludes that God is indeed the supreme light, the source ..as one mystic said...we are not a drop in the ocean, we are the ocean in a drop. Mr. Wilson explains this very well. I highly recommend this book. It will bring much needed answers, peace and understanding to many. Highly recommended. Well done. Kudos to Mr. Wilson!
One suggestion I would make would be to mention in the opening notes that it might be best for general audiences to skip to the conclusions at the end of each chapter, and then on to the overall conclusion or summary at the end of the book. I found myself doing this. The overall content of the book was much too scholarly for me. Beyond, this suggestion, I would also mention that most of us are looking for applications; principals that we can apply NOW in these strange times that we are trying to understand and survive in.
While I cannot, at this stage, accept all of Wilson's arguements without skepticism, I do believe that this text nicely summarizes work from various fields that suggest that a refined understanding of consciousness, advanced physics, anf the nature of the soul may one day be realized. At the very least, the book provides an intuitively satisfying argument for what the true nature of existence might be.
To be sure, this is not intended to be a complete argument, and the author invites the reader to consider the primary literature (which itself is in need of many decades of refinement) as well as numerous counter-arguements (which is routine in philosophical and scientific discourse). Beyond the rhetoric is a tantalizing glimpse of a hidden, but nevertheless genuine reality. Ultimately, this book's importance may not lie in providing answers so much as revealing a thought process that is worthy of continued exploration.Read more ›

Just a wishful (garbage) thinking IMHO. The positive outlook on how we could and should improve our "humanity" is commanding though.Published on August 10, 2013 by Constantin
