VOTED NO.1 in NON-FICTION and OVERALL previously, this book will change your notion of reality! Are we living in a virtual simulated universe? It is a common theme in religious theory, particularly in the East, that the reality we perceive in our everyday waking consciousness is an illusion - much as a stick in water appears "broken" because of the refracting light. Most of us would dismiss this suggestion, except for the fact that Science is beginning to say the same. Modern physics clearly points out that we live in a multi-dimensional multiverse; and that space and time are stubborn illusions - to quote Albert Einstein himself. The intriguing question is: How did mystics who lived more than 2,000 years ago come to the same conclusions without the aid of scientific instruments or advanced mathematics? Can we enter directly into a reality unbounded by space or time? Is this familiar 3d universe only a transient virtual reality? Does quantum theory support this view? Please give your COMMENTS/RATINGS.- much appreciated!
