This book will please anyone with an interest in modern physics or consciousness.
What does Andrew Mulcare bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

If you could give The Dimensional Structure of Consciousness: A Physical Basis for Immaterialism a new subtitle, what would it be?
The place of conscious observation in modern physics. What does meditation have to add to be careful contemplation of physics .Samuel Avery has well thought out, reasoned the issues of quantum mechanics and relativity theory and has applied it to meditation experience, to propose a new mythology.. .
Any additional comments?
I would like to meet Sam Avery, and talk to him more about his books I've read or listen to several of his audiobooks and have watched a presentation on the Internet.I wonder if he has read Guilio Tononi's recent book , Phi ? The integration of information to the highest level but no higher ( Phi) is discussed or paraphrased in Avery's booksThe Being or the observer in us all is the mythology waiting for a scientific theory. Tononi thinks that it's all contained in the cranium.

Any additional comments?
For me this was a reading I had to actually sit down and concentrate on. (wasn't running around the place doing other things at the same time). I understand the books point but it's very hard for me to grasp it's reality. I do have a fair understanding quantum physics. I know it is sound and true. But to grasp that things only exist because we perceive them in our consciousness, and only then, is a mind bender. In other words instead of the universe being some kind of great machine (out there), it is more like a great thought. And would completely collapse without someone there to perceive it into existence.
These things for me are truly wonderous.
For what it's worth, I did not even make it to the second chapter, but I am fairly certain there was no chance of it getting better. The author is neither a physicist nor a philosopher, which are not requirements to write on this topic, I know, but the level of sheer inventive speculation and lack of meaningful evidence to back any of it up were too much for me.
