Customer Review

on August 16, 2008
According to Peter Francis Dziuban, ALL finite phenomena (walking your dog, eating a sandwich, reading this review) are unreal.

Well OK, Vedanta might seem to agree with that. Vedanta might say that they neither real nor unreal, they are mithya, name and form of the One substratum which is pure being - Brahman. But, according to Dziuban, they are not real in any sense (or indeed no sense) - they are not even afforded the status of illusion - even an illusion is utterly non-existent.

Consciousness is All presents a series of pointers and arguments to support and verify this sort of assertion (of course this verification must also be non-existent).

Already there may be suspicion that a sleight of logic is at work (in fact some of the reasoning here would make Zeno the ancient philosopher of paradox blush.)

The central claim that Consciousness is all is presented with clarity, but Dziuban's ultimate conclusions regarding finite reality are just so much logic based on abstraction and conjecture.

Oh, and the book is far too long and repetitive.
