"You will have a wide range of experiences as you read. Sometimes you will be thrilled by energies and structures of cutting-edge astronomy which are presented here with great clarity, sometimes you simply marvel at how much our contemporary sciences have discovered, sometimes you will be confused by the wide range of experiences and interpretations offered, sometimes you will argue against the vision in this book, sometimes you will argue for it; but most of all you will find yourself exploding with new ideas: your own fresh ideas sparked by your interaction with a profound work that serendipity has placed in your hands."

“Ideas and concepts that are all too often—and all too easily— elevated to the level of literally and ethically untouchable principles appear here as 'experimental axioms,' metaphysical instruments for exploring a Real which remains perfectly mysterious from start to finish. Too many theosophical writers transcendentalize—and thereby absolutize—their models; in building their metaphysical otherworlds, they end up stifling rather than freeing the flow of creative forces in this world, this life. Grossinger builds psychic models without turning them into moral cages. Such, I think, is the key to reviving a truly creative spirituality in this millennium.”

"A superb examination, geared to the layperson, of the science and anthropology of the stars and planets."

produce. It's just that it then goes on to embraces all other "modes of knowing" and attempts to make sense of our conscious experience and on to the very miracle of our existence. Written (for the most part) in a colloquial (even profane-at-times) style, with an almost novel-like narrative flow, even while covering the most esoteric of topics, these three volumes will arouse thinking behavior, deep emotions (all levels) -- and, not least, reveals one of the most courageous and humble searchers of our time. Compares with Ken Wilber's theories of everything, but without the dogma.
his books starting with 1989s "Waiting for the
Martian Express" and and have enormously enjoyed every one. "The Night Sky" is my third
favorite of his (I am fascinated by astronomy and anyone who loves this topic will love this book) My first two are his " at #1 2013 Raising
the Earth to the Next Vibration" and #2 "The
Bardo of Waking Life." I plan to try to read all of
his work. Great going Richard Grossinger! You
are a true gift!
