Publisher's Summary

Setting aside the pervasive material bias of science and lifting the obscuring fog of religious sectarianism reveals a surprisingly clear unity of science and religion. The explanations of transcendent phenomena given by saints, sages, and near-death experiencers are fully congruent with scientific discoveries in the fields of relativity, quantum physics, medicine, M-theory, neuroscience, and quantum biology.

The Physics of God describes the intersections of science and religion with colorful, easy-to-understand metaphors, making abstruse subjects within both science and religion easily accessible to the layman-no math, no dogma. This intriguing book:

  • Pulls back the curtain on the light-show illusion we call matter.
  • Reveals the scientific secret of life and immortality: quantum biology's startling discovery that the human body is continuously entangled.
  • Demonstrates the miracle-making power of our minds to effect instantaneous physiological changes.
  • Explains how the intelligent observer effect confirms our high spiritual potential.

Critic Reviews

"The Physics of God is the best book on the subject that I have ever read. It is a clear and lucid explanation of the interface between science and spirituality, as well as consciousness and matter. Anyone, scientist or layman, will benefit from this marvelous book." (Jyotish Novak, author of How to Meditate)

Deeply Satisfying

I have been studying spirituality through the lens of modern day science for some time. The fusion of science and spirit has never been clearer to me than it is now, thanks to this wonderful book. The Audible presentation is very good, especially considering the volume of quotations in the book, and I never felt lost.

loved listening to it after Richard Dawkins's work

this book gave me several insights.. it helped me reconcile my inner learning and experience with scientific thought and dogmas.. I feel enriched, having listened to it! if this book comes your way, just grab it!!

Great summation for the layman

It was wonderful to discover a book that remained so open to the spiritual perspective and yet did such a great job of explaining the science. I learned many fascinating things about quantum physics and contemporary theory. Well done.

Excellent

This should be required reading in high school. I have been thinking along these lines for a while. Excellent!

Consciousness Entanglement With Quantum Energy Waves.

A clear narration of cutting edge concepts integrating self awareness with quantum, universal energy emanations.

fascinating<br />

This book is well documented. I consider it worth a second read to absorb it all.

a different narrator would have made this better

Overall a pretty good listen if you are interested in the topic. Could not stand the narrator though -always over pronouncing ‘s’ sounds. And it was a little skewed towards religion. The science was well explained and supported by facts while the “facts” religion had to offer are still supported by little more then unexplained belief. I still enjoyed the book as a whole though, and would recommend!

Increbile insight

Would you consider the audio edition of The Physics of God to be better than the print version?

I truly enjoyed the book and have listened to it twice. It really makes me feel differently about everything I've ever believed in. Thank you

Disappointing due to inaccurate physics

I was disappointed by this book as the reporting on physics was inaccurate to the point of carelessness. Some of the errors were minor--the claim that Bohm worked on the Manhattan project (he didn't) and misattribution of a famous quote to Feynman that was actually said by David Mermin ("Shut up and calculate!").

But, one mis-statement of the book is major--that the consciousness of an intelligent being is required to convert particles in a quantum state to a particle. No major physicist has maintained this, and there is certainly no experimental evidence for this. In the 1920's and 30's major physicists like Schrodinger and Heisenberg thought it possible that consciousness was necessary to granting physical reality to particles. But they were not saying anything about the consciousness of an "intelligent being."

Since that time, physicists have moved away from the idea of consciousness playing a role in favor of an information theory approach. The information theory approach is entirely consistent with experimental results and quantum mechanics theory.

Personally, I believe that consciousness plays a role in creating our perception of our universe. But to make claims that physicists hold that intelligent consciousness changes quantum states to physical states is just plain inaccurate.

I'm pushing myself to listen to the entire book, because I am finding things out about string theory that I didn't know--you can be sure, however, that I will be checking everything that the author is saying about it! I really have to push myself to listen to it because the narration has a sing-songy "sweetness and light" quality. Yes, I find this book annoying.

Very enjoyable and interesting.

Great book, if you are of a scientific mind and have an interest in the spiritual this book brings the two together quite coherently.... As it should be. (the word "God" in the title should be spirituality, the book is more about consciousness and the human experience with some aspects relating to religions)

Great read

I really enjoyed the science parts of this book. They were well worth the effort of having to listen to the other stuff about multiple personality disorder and ESP, which I'm not so interested in. Personal taste though. I'd definitely recommend this book even if you're not religious because it doesn't have to be about God. I read it with biocentrism in mind.

Great ideas fascinating stuff

Close to my heart I’ve seen the astral worlds myself
Very repetitive wording and not such a good voice to listen to
Speed a little too fast but doesn’t feel good when slowed down either
Lovely subject but a little disappointing

excellent

great book but I think the author would have been better served not making theological remarks instead focusing on the scientific and philosophical. I would definitely recommend it.
