This text is an eye opener. Both eyes! Reanney encourages a 'new way of seeing' and a 'new way of knowing' -- a binocular view of the twin components of 'Paradox' where 'things that seem opposite in ignorance are reconciled in knowing'.
His scientific and poetic aspects blended to beckon, prod, and guide me through an adventure of consciousness that, chapter by chapter, unpacked a deeper knowing of the wisdom encoded in a series of popularly held paradoxes. Reanney reflected on the journey in these terms:
'When we began [the journey through each chapter] we saw… the world "out there" as separate from the world " in here". That boundary has gone. When we began we saw one moment as separate from other moments. That boundary has gone. When we began we saw consciousness as separate from the reality it perceives. That boundary has gone. When we began we saw the atoms that make up our bodies as separate from the stars that created them. That boundary has gone. When we began we saw the physics of matter as separate from the physics of morality. That boundary has gone. When we began we saw one half of a paradox as separate from its partner. That boundary has gone.’
His closing chapter introduces the notion of ‘phase transition’– an ‘out of the blue’ radical, transformative shift triggered by ‘integrations in depth (reconciled paradoxes) that reveal All to be One’ – shifts from the current ego-centric global profile towards universal expressions of 'greater caring, a lessened desire for material things, a desire to be of service to others and a more integrated awareness.’
I found it good to read through to get the gist of it; better to read in small, reflective doses; and best to vocalise it a paragraph at a time’ with a fellow quester, until its wisdom enhanced its meaning and dissolved our differences.

Darryl Reanney is intimately familiar with the findings of modern science and shares his quest for deeper knowledge. His book 'Music of the Mind' is one of those rare books that stands up to scientific scrutiny and invites the reader to expand his/her horizon. I thoroughly recommend it to anybody who has difficulties accepting that science and spirituality can co-exist.
