Publisher's Summary

Consciousness creates all material reality. Biological processes do not create consciousness. This conceptual breakthrough turns traditional scientific thinking upside down. In An End to Upside Down Thinking, Mark Gober traces his journey - he explores compelling scientific evidence from a diverse set of disciplines, ranging from psychic phenomena to near-death experiences to quantum physics and beyond. With cutting-edge thinkers like two-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr. Ervin Laszlo, chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences Dr. Dean Radin, and New York Times best-selling author Larry Dossey, MD, supporting this thesis, this book will rock the scientific community and mainstream generalists interested in understanding the true nature of reality. 

Today's disarray around the globe can be linked, at its core, to a fundamental misunderstanding of our reality. This book aims to shift our collective outlook, reshaping our view of human potential and how we treat one another. The book's implications encourage much-needed revisions in science, technology, and medicine. General listeners will find comfort in the implied worldview, which will impact their happiness and everyday decisions related to business, health, and politics. 

Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time meets Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now.

One of the best books I’ve read!

I’m just finishing a molecular biology degree at CU Boulder and was looking for a question to answer to for my graduate studies. This book has pointed me in a direction I am passionate about. Thank you Mr. Mark Gober!

A Mind Opening Listen!!

This book explores the compelling evidence behind human perception and awareness. It will inspire you to rethink your outlook about existence, meaning, and overall worldview. If you enjoy Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, and David Hawkins you'll enjoy this book!!!

Excellent book changed my beliefs

This is thought provoking but the narration is done so poorly, he sounds like he is reading with off-putting monotone voice very distracting. He should have hired a professional so the excellent ideas and research could be better absorbed and understood. I loved the content; it changed dramatically my view of our consciousness, the afterlife and what the soul is.

THE EXISTENTIAL RENEWAL

this book is highly comprehensive and easily comprehendable, full of quotes by nobel prize winning experts in their respected fields including experimental data and accounts of real events recorded by average and extraordinary people alike. This is the history of mind-expanding exploration into the reality of conciousness or more accurately stated as the conciousness of reality. be prepared, the implications of this potential will challenge the very basis of life as we know it.

An absolute must read (or listen to)!!

I cannot say enough about this life-enhancing book! This puts EVERYTHING into perspective and has been essential in reshaping the way I now look at and experience life! SO grateful to Mark Gober for putting this information together so brilliantly, in a way that is easy to follow, easy to understand and easy to immediately implement. Also, love all the science that is incorporated to back up everything that is being discussed! I am a firm believer that this has brought my upside thinking to an end and I am watching my world turn right side up as a result!!

Religion Pretending to be Science

This book tries every possible rhetorical trick to make you believe such nonsense as psychic powers, spirits, god, etc. The book even quotes a nobel peace prize nominee, pretending like that means something. It's unclear how a nobel prize in peace qualifies you to make any scientific claims. This book is nonsense.

Mind Blown!

I was always intrigued with the same questions of life and consciousness as the author addressed so thoroughly in this book. It has opened my mind up to new possibilities and has shed brighter light to what I already thought was real. The evidence brought forth in this book challenging material science is definitely worth noting and researching on a deeper level. I feel like my consciousness has just leveled up in understanding (I)tself.

Author has single track thinking

There are several serious problems in the author’s logic, because he is too focused on proving consciousness while brain is totally shut down. For example he posits teléathy, a skill that according to cited studies requires functioning brain with some disruption to control function of the brain. Then fails to attempt to explain the NDE chapter by telepathy of the patients receiving and sending thoughts and then brain simply creating a story to explain the newly acquired information. If you take into account higher recall of early memories already shown under hypnosis, there is nothing that would require consciosness while the brain does not function. All the information is available in the people in the room while the patient is waking. Similar errors can be seen throughout the entire book. Nothing I have heard would suggest need to reverse the arrow from brain to consciousness.

Powerful, Challenging and Inspiring

I predict you will either love or hate this book. If Materialism and Idealism are alternative frames through which to define reality, this book is a powerful and brilliantly argued case against the predominant orthodoxy of materialism, and in favour of the primary nature of consciousness as the foundation of all reality. Much of the book is a reexamination of PSI research, using quotes from scientists, researchers, statisticians and reviewers involved in academic and government research into parapsychology, and should cause one to look again at these phenomena, but for me, the best chapters were kept to last.

In these final chapters Mark Gober looks at the implications of the “consciousness first” paradigm, and the universal nature of the “I” with which all sentient beings identify. As many of our greatest minds, (eg. Schrödinger and Mach) believed, the implications are that we are One Being, living multiple diverse existences, and it is the illusion of separation and alienation of ourselves from ourselves that plagues us.

Even if you dont agree with the central premise (Im still agnostic), this book is well worth reading, if only as a challenge, and well argued alternative to the central materialist dogma of our time.

Excellent

An excellent compendium of research in the field of quanta, parapsychology, materialism and philosophy. If you’ve studied books like this before (eg The Field by Lynne McTaggart, One Mind by Larry Dossey, Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian Weiss) or if you’ve taken an interest in meditation, shamanic medicine or spirituality, then this really builds on and creates a rounded view of that literature, including implications for us now and the future of our culture. Highly recommended, entertaining, thought-provoking, well-researched and worthy of serious discussion.

Yes..... but,

Some very interesting points, but far too many quotes. Sometimes I thought I was just listening to a list being read out, "quote this, quote that" for what felt like far too long.
In the end, the book reaches a conclusion about "self" which I feel is unsupportable, and becomes a little "up itself", (which is a phrase wot us cultured people use), leaving me irritated. Still, not bad. Doubt I'll re-listen, and wouldn't recommend to anyone with any sense of humility.
