It helped to solidify my understanding of energetic vibrations and how to work with them, rather than struggling.
The law of attraction as described in other ways was so so frustrating...trying to use positive thinking, etc....
Since reading this, I understand the mechanics of vibration/ frequency behavior & it's all clear!
Itzhak invites us in innocently enough by talk of vibrations and frequency. Next thing you know he’s discussing frequency coherency and holograms. Suddenly, you’re strapped in and he’s pushed you off the edge and you are on a crazy Bentov Bender zip line through the consciousness of the cosmos. Hang on.
Forty years after this was written, I believe this book still pushes the edge of what we think about our place in the Universe, ourselves as holograms, and how Consciousness interacts with the Universe.
Just a few of the Free Toys inside this heavy box of Bentov Bran Flakes include:
Everything comes down to frequency. Get the right frequency and you entrain with the cosmos. Your energy can travel around the world seven times a second.
His own model of the Universe (even designed after a jelly doughnut) complete with Black Holes, White Holes, Matter, an Axis of Time, Light Escapement, the Universal Mind Hologram, Expansion and Informational Fields of Energy. You’ve never seen toys like this.
Discussions on Relative Realities, Levels of Evolution and Consciousness Hierarchies.
Ideas suggesting Poltergeists, ESP, Psychokinesis,Psychic Healing and other phenomena, Telepathy, and Mystical experiences are all just consciousness on a higher level.
A real masterpiece of creativity and a plethora of crazy ideas, mixed with plenty of hand drawn graphs and doodles to exemplify his points.
I believe you could kick back and randomly open the book and discuss any idea on a given page for hours with your buddies.
Oh, by the way, it would really help if your buddies were also a stoned Hippie, an Astro-Physicist, and a Philosopher.
There are times when one swerves into what has been intended and there are occasions when the opposite has occurred...and for a reason.
If you have read this work, you have read it for a reason. For that and for no other reason, you cannot not know you were called to rub your brain up against his. He is as we all are, imbued with the divine spark that lies within us. His meticulousness is without peer. His detail, the same. His agenda, divinely inspired. Simply we are one...we, who have the God-spark within us, are by deduction...God...all of us. We are who we pray to.and to whom we seek guidance...we are seeking miracles from ourselves.

Fast forward to now some 26 years later and I managed to find this copy on amazon, Boy I have not been disappointed, I am 3/4 of the way through and even though I remember some of the concepts presented a lot of the information spoke about still seems very fresh and new.
If you are into the metaphysical and quantum physics then this is most definitely the book for you, If you are bored of the mundane and wish to expand your current awareness of your universe this book is for you.
The information presented within is not new knowledge but a revival of old understandings of the holistic universe which for all intents and purposes is stranger than one would first think.
All in all a very enlightening examination of the universe from the macrocosm to the microcosm and the mechanics that govern it all.
One thing I noted was his talk about the Kundalini Syndrom that arises from long term meditation. He mentions various side effects that come along with the "opening" of channels, etc.. People trying this stuff should be aware of Taoist meditation practices (in particular a proper grounding and the Microcosmic orbit meditation) that deal with this kind of adverse effects (see, e.g. Mantak Chia, Healing Light of the Tao).
I particular like his repeating big bang theory in which he says the universe originated from a white hole (the opposite of a black whole)which spewed out matter in the form of the big bang. This matter then spread out much like a fountain would and as it fell back around the other side of the white whole it was sucked back in at the opposite side to the white whole which is of course a black whole.
The diagrams in the book describe this and other theories much better than I could here. Highly recommended.
Too often books on these subjects plunge headlong into the abyss of mysticism,faith healing and ranting Utopian ideals,this however is a much more serious effort at explaining the mechanics of consciousness.It is an enlightening book.
