Science and the Reenchantment of the Cosmos

Science and the Reenchantment of the Cosmos

The Rise of the Integral Vision of Reality

by Ervin Laszlo, PhD

Science and the Reenchantment of the Cosmos presents a revolutionary new theory that bridges the divide between science and spirituality, disclosing the ramifications of non-localized consciousness and how the physical world and spiritual experience are two aspects of the same reality.

What scientists are now finding at the outermost frontiers of every field is overturning all the basic premises concerning the nature of matter and reality. The universe is not a world of separate things and events but is a cosmos that is connected, coherent, and bears a profound resemblance to the visions held in the earliest spiritual traditions in which the physical world and spiritual experience were both aspects of the same reality and man and the universe were one. The findings that justify this new vision of the underlying logic of the universe come from almost all of the empirical sciences: physics, cosmology, the life sciences, and consciousness research. They explain how interactions lead to interconnections that produce instantaneous and multifaceted coherence--what happens to one part also happens to the other parts, and hence to the system as a whole. The sense of sacred oneness experienced by our ancestors that was displaced by the unyielding material presumptions of modern science can be restored, and humanity can once again feel at home in the universe.

You'll find contributions from Jane Goodall, Ed Mitchell, Stanislav Grof, Ralph Abraham, and Christian de Quincy, among others.
