A vivid and captivating narrative about how modern science broke free of ancient philosophy, and how theoretical physics is returning to its unscientific roots In the early seventeenth century Galileo broke free from the hold of ancient Platonic and Aristotelian philosophy. He drastically changed the framework through which we view the natural world when he asserted that we should base our theory of reality on what we can observe rather than pure thought. In the process, he invented what we would come to call science. This set the stage for all the breakthroughs that followed--from Kepler to Newton to Einstein. But in the early twentieth century when quantum physics, with its deeply complex mathematics, entered into the picture, something began to change. Many physicists began looking to the equations first and physical reality second. As we investigate realms further and further from what we can see and what we can test, we must look to elegant, aesthetically pleasing equations to develop our conception of what reality is. As a result, much of theoretical physics today is something more akin to the philosophy of Plato than the science to which the physicists are heirs. In The Dream Universe, Lindley asks what is science when it becomes completely untethered from measurable phenomena?

Have you ever contemplated the cause of the universe beyond simply attributing it to God or The Big Bang? If so, in that causal contemplation, have you ever entertained the idea that the universe is but a dream? Which is to say, have you ever considered that the cause of the universe is that you dreamt it up? At first glance, the idea that you dreamt up the universe perhaps seems implausible. However, what if you really took that idea seriously and followed it to its logical conclusion? What would you discover? Well, this book answers that question. Using the unique form of a graphic novel, artist and writer Alexander Marchand takes you on an artistic, humorous, irreverent, and extremely informative romp through the advanced, nondualistic metaphysics of the contemporary spiritual document known as A Course in Miracles. In the end, you'll not only have a coherent picture of the true nature of the universe and existence, but you'll also have essential, practical knowledge of what you'll need to do to if you are ready to wake up.

Looking at the work without novelistic expectations of the illusion of some "keyto unlock the mystery, Norris explores Joyce's rationale for committing his last human panorama—a bit sadder than Ulysses in its concern with aging, killing, and dying—to a form and language belonging to the deconstructive forces of the twentieth century.

The universe is the Creation and Manifestation of Brahman the ultimate reality. Universe is not different from God and is the physical body of God. Since time immemorial both the yogis and the scientists are busy in searching this Ultimate Truth and the path for salvation of soul. As the ultimate truth is one and can never be contradictory to any scientific or spiritual system, I decided to synthesize both and remove the existing differences and misconceptions between the two.Aim of the book is to understand better our relation with universe & God. I have tried my best not to twist any spiritual, scientific or historical fact to prove my point. To an ordinary man the universe around looks real in every sense. But all the Holy Scriptures and great saints have declared the universe as Unreal, a Dream and a Thought in the Mind of God. We are confused and want to know the truth. The Maya of God and the limitations of our sense organs is the biggest hindrance in knowing the absolute truth.

In The Divine Universe, mystic, poet and philosopher, Swami Abhayananda, turns his eye to the Divine origin and manifestation of the universe, and offers a spiritual interpretation of "The Big Bang" and the "singularity" from which contemporary cosmologists say it was produced. In addition, he applies his unique vision to the subjects of nondualism, mystical experience, and the nature of the soul in his broad portrayal of a living universe ensouled in the Mind of God. Blending his mystical insights with an uncommon grasp of contemporary scientific issues, Abhayananda has produced what will no doubt become a spiritual classic that will shift paradigms, inspire and excite us, and forever revolutionize our perspective on the universe and its origin.
