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!!!

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.

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!!

WAY TOO MANY ANECDOTES AND NOT ENOUGH SOLID SCIENCE

It’s a frustrating listen. I absolutely agree with his premise that consciousness is the basis of all reality. His presentation, however, is full of circular arguments, unverified anecdotes and bad science. Jumping from conclusion to conclusion, he often says the same thing over and over in different (and sometimes identical) ways. Sloppy and a real disappointment.

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.
