“It is rare indeed that a revolution in thought can open our eyes to a new universe that transforms our inner experience as well as our relationships with others and even with the cosmos. Martin Buber did it with I and Thou. Now, Ervin Laszlo, one of the most profound minds of our generation, has given us a great gift in this readable book that explores how we are connected to each other in fields of resonance that penetrate to the deepest levels of being.” (Allan Combs, Ph.D., professor of psychology, University of North Carolina at Asheville, and author o)
“In this impressive and transformative work Laszlo brings the reader into an integral worldview for our time. The reader who encounters this book will be irrevocably transformed and will henceforth experience the world through a global lens.” (Ashok Gangadean, Ph.D., professor of philosophy, Haverford College, founder-director of the Global D)
“In a visionary way based on profound knowledge of modern science, Laszlo creates a genuine architecture of human and cosmic evolution. He provides the bridge between all the different puzzle-stones of science and unifies them in a most remarkable and bold ‘integral theory of everything.’” (Fritz-Albert Popp, Ph.D., director of the International Institute of Biophysics and editor of Recent)
“This is one of the most important books to be published in the last decades. Ervin Laszlo’s Science and the Akashic Field has the power and coherence to explain the major phenomena of cosmos, life, and mind as they occur at the various levels of nature and society. In demonstrating that an information field is a fundamental factor in the universe, Ervin Laszlo catalyzes a radical paradigm-shift in the contemporary sciences.” (Ignazio Masulli, Ph.D., professor of history, University of Bologna, Italy, and coauthor of The Evol)
“Laszlo’s book opens the way toward a great synthesis. Whoever reads Laszlo’s book witnesses the greatest awakening of the human spirit. Not since Plato and Democritus has there been such a transformation in the history of thought!” (László Gazdag, Ph.D., physicist and professor of Social Sciences, Science University of P&)
“In his admirable 40-year quest for an integral theory of everything, Laszlo has. . . presented a coherent global hypothesis of connectivity between quantum, cosmos, life and consciousness." (Zev Naveh, Ph.D., professor emeritus, Israel Institute of Technology, and author of Landscape Ecolog)
"Science and the Akashic Field provides the pioneering scientific answer to . . . fundamental questions our species faces at this critical time in human evolution.” (David Loye, Ph.D., former research director of the Program on Psychosocial Adaptation and the Future)
“Science and the Akashic Field . . . . offers humanity the perspective of more peace and security, not as an idealistic goal but as a reflection of reality.” (Jurriaan Kamp, editor in chief of Ode Magazine and author of Because People Matter)
“. . . Ervin Laszlo’s brilliant new work, Science and the Akashic Field, surpasses previous explorations. . . . This is a 'make-sense-of-the-complex' opus, accessible to every reader.” (A. Harris Stone, Ed.D., founder of The Graduate Institute in Milford, Connecticut, and author of The)
“This is a solidly grounded vision of our cosmos, with perspectives that are wide and deep and have profound implications for all of us.” (Henrik B. Tschudi, chairman of the Flux Foundation, Oslo, Norway)
From the Back Cover
NEW SCIENCE / PHYSICS
“This important work unifies the realms of science and consciousness in a truly integral ‘theory of everything.’”
--Ralph Abraham, Ph.D., professor of mathematics, University of California, and coauthor of Chaos, Creativity, and Cosmic Consciousness
“A seminal book from one of the best thinkers of our time. Ervin Laszlo charts the frontiers to which science is inexorably headed. In years to come people will look back at the amazing foresight of this work.”
--Peter Russell, fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and the Findhorn Foundation and author of From Science to God
“With extraordinary intellectual clarity, Laszlo provides a vision that links the best of modern science to the wisdom of the great spiritual traditions.”
--Stanislav Grof, M.D., Ph.D., president and founder of the International Transpersonal Association and author of The Holotropic Mind
Mystics and sages have long maintained that there exists an interconnecting cosmic field at the roots of reality that conserves and conveys information, a field known as the Akashic record. Recent discoveries in vacuum physics show that this Akashic Field is real and has its equivalent in science’s zero-point field that underlies space itself. This field consists of a subtle sea of fluctuating energies from which all things arise: atoms and galaxies, stars and planets, living beings, and even consciousness. This zero-point Akashic Field is the constant and enduring memory of the universe. It holds the record of all that has happened on Earth and in the cosmos and relates it to all that is yet to happen.
In Science and the Akashic Field, philosopher and scientist Ervin Laszlo conveys the essential element of this information field in language that is accessible and clear. From the world of science he confirms our deepest intuitions of the oneness of creation in the Integral Theory of Everything. We discover that, as philosopher William James stated, “We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep.”
ERVIN LASZLO, holder of the highest degree of the Sorbonne (the State Doctorate), is recipient of four Honorary Ph.D.s and numerous awards and distinctions, including the 2001 Goi Award (the Japan Peace Prize) and nominations for the 2004 and 2005 Nobel Peace Prizes. He is a former professor of philosophy, systems theory, and futures studies in the U.S., Europe, and the Far East and founder and president of the international think-tank the Club of Budapest as well as of the General Evolution Research Group. The author of 75 books, translated into 20 languages, he lives in Italy.

Love your book Ervin and, as a meditator for 50 years, I see that the Akashic field is every bit as real as the "scientific" fields.
