    "Theory of Reality is a stunning achievement – a masterful synthesis of neuroscience, physics and the new disciplines of frontier science, the findings of which all point to the primacy of consciousness. An intellectual tour de force, David Wiebers' book can and should fundamentally alter the scientific enterprise of the twenty-first century. Definition 2. Reality (with a capital R) consists of all realities. Definition 3. The nature of a reality, or of Reality, is a description or explanation of that reality, or of Reality. A reality for a particular stone or person consists of that stone’s or person’s interactions with changing environments – ie with what becomes for them.

    physics and metaphysical science. The Theory of Reality can change our lives, not only as individuals but also as a society. The first half of this book provides scientific explanation for significant evidence that shows that consciousness is the fundamental fabric of our universe and our deeper selves. Further evidence shows that.   There have been exactly zero documented cases of someone speaking in tongues and actually producing a language. "Tongues" means languages, and it is only through convenient redefinition that practitioners are able to define "speaking in tongues" a.

    What the Science of Reality is personal experience - through living in the material world; For in one small Book He has taken ³the inner essence of all that has been uttered by the tongue of power and might and that has been revealed to the Prophets² of the past, and ³clothed it in the garment of brevity.² And in addition He gave to. Strassman admitted that this remains a rather tentative explanation at best and lacks corroborating evidence. In Chapter 7 of the Inner Paths, psychiatrist Ede Frecska engages in elaborate.

They include scientific explanation, rationality, inference and induction, social. Reality Denied Reality conventional wisdom with events that, although quite real, seem to challenge the revered “laws of science,” proving them to be wrong or incomplete.

The thorny issues of life after death, mind over matter, UFOs, remote viewing, telepathic communications with animals, and more are all addressed from Col. John Alexander’s firsthand perspective.4/5(37).

Nonetheless, the scientific explanation is that your experience was an illusion. But as you have Reality, it was an illusion that had a profound effect on your approach to life.

Out-of-Body experiences are also an s:   Nope. Science does not have anything even remotely sensible to say about the reality we live in. Reality consists of our conscious experience of the world, and science has absolutely nothing sensible or intelligent to say about consciousness. Thus. Get this from a library.

It includes discussions of scientific explanation, rationality, inference and induction. "Reality Denied" is a fascinating and detailed look at a variety of phenomena that offer no rational explanation for their existence and that have been generally ignored by the scientific establishment.

What is even more impressive about this book is that Alexander was often personally involved and/or encouraged many of these experiments and 4/5(36).

In The Parallax View, Žižek, with his usual astonishing erudition, focuses on three main modes of parallax: the ontological difference, the ultimate parallax that conditions our very access to reality; the scientific parallax, the irreducible gap between the phenomenal experience of reality and its scientific explanation, which reaches its.

Jeffrey Long, in his book, "Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences," documented a study he conducted - the largest scientific study of NDEs ever - based on his research of over 1, NDEs shared with Using his treasure trove of data, Dr.

Long explains how NDEs cannot be explained by brain chemistry alone. HowStuffWorks has braved this territory on the edge of reality, explaining how near-death experiences work and how a person can have an out-of-body experience. Science, too, has made its own headway toward explaining these weird phenomena.

Two studies on the separate aspects of Reynolds' experience were conducted in The Science of Near-Death Experiences. The book it was based on, “Whether there can be a scientific explanation for NDEs is a critical flash point for the science of consciousness Author: Gideon Lichfield. Scientific American is the essential guide to the most awe-inspiring advances in science and technology, explaining how they change our understanding of the world and shape our lives.

InJohannes Kepler, a theoretical astronomer who earned the greater part of his income from casting horoscopes, published the Harmonices Mundi, the "Harmony of the World".It contained a statement of the Third Law, relating the period of a planet's rotation around the sun to the radius of its orbit; this was the fruit of years of diligent work, and a first-order scientific breakthrough/5.

Good book that references a lot of studies and scientific facts to convincingly make the argument that the mind is separate from the brain and that our consciousness survives death. First part of the book was really technical and discussed a lot of scientific and biological /5. Experience definition is - direct observation of or participation in events as a basis of knowledge.

How to use experience in a sentence. Yet he has his personal way of explaining physical reality. His view is not shared by all scientists, one should admit. However, there is agreement about the scientific conclusions.

The first chapter in the book stresses *explanation*, our understanding of the reason for things.5/5(5). The best explanation of anything eventually involves universality, and therefore infinity.

The reach of explanations cannot be limited by fiat.” ~ David Deutsch The Fabric of Reality encompasses everything from how evolution affects the universe as a whole to how time travel is possible, to the very nature of a “theory” and how quantum Author: Gary Z Mcgee. Paranormal events are purported phenomena described in popular culture, folk, and other non-scientific bodies of knowledge, whose existence within these contexts is described as beyond normal experience or scientific explanation.

Proposals regarding the paranormal are different from scientific hypotheses or speculations extrapolated from scientific evidence because scientific ideas are.

Alexander claims there is no scientific explanation for his experiences, but I just gave one. They occurred while his brain function was either on the way down or on the way back up, or both, not.

Scientific American is the essential In his new book is that the fundamental constituents of reality—perhaps electrons and quarks—have incredibly. In The Varieties of Religious Experience, more than a century old and still the best book ever written on mysticism, psychologist William James described experiences, like Alexander's, that.In the philosophy of science, models of scientific inquiry have two functions: first, to provide a descriptive account of how scientific inquiry is carried out in practice, and second, to provide an explanatory account of why scientific inquiry succeeds as well as it appears to do in arriving at genuine knowledge.

The search for scientific knowledge ends far back into antiquity.
