The Physics of Consciousness: The Quantum Mind and the Meaning of Life

by

The Physics of Consciousness: The Quantum Mind and the Meaning of Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For decades, neuroscientists, psychologists, and an army of brain researchers have been struggling, in vain, to explain the phenomenon of consciousness. Now there is a clear trail to the answer, and it leads through the dense jungle of quantum physics, Zen, and subjective experience, and arrives at an unexpected destination. In this tour-de-force of scientific investigation, Evan Harris Walker shows how the operation of bizarre yet actual properties of elementary particles support a new and exciting theory of reality, based on the principles of quantum physics-a theory that answers questions such as "What is the nature of consciousness, of will?" "What is the source of material reality?" and "What is God?”

Synopsis:

How quantum physics will explain the nature of reality and the human mind.
