Return to Book Page. Science and the Akashic Field: Introduces the embracing world-concept long sought by scientists, mystics, and sages: Recent discoveries in the new field of vacuum physics now show that this Akashic field is real and has its equivalent in the zero-point field that underlies space itself. This field consists of a subtle sea of fluctuating energies from which all things arise: It holds the record of all that ever happened in life, on Earth, and in the cosmos and relates it to all that is yet to happen.
The informed universe lends credence to our deepest intuitions of the oneness of life and the whole of creation. Paperbackpages. Published September 23rd by Inner Traditions first published To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Apr 21, Tom rated it really liked it Shelves: In his groundbreaking book in the philosophy of science, Thomas Kuhn argued that true paradigm change in science usually comes from someone who is either very new to a field or from entirely outside of it.
As stated in his autobiographical statement at the end of this book we learn that Laszlo was a concert pianist before he became interested in searching for meaning through science.
This occurred after the birth of his first son and gradually, this quest took over his life. He seems to be large In his groundbreaking book in the philosophy of science, Thomas Kuhn argued that true paradigm change in science usually comes from someone who is either very new to a field or from entirely outside of it.
He seems to be largely self-educated in physics and science and through his work has received four Honorary PhDs as well as major awards and distinctions.
He is a former professor of philosophy, systems theory and futures studies in the U. Physicists strive to find a unifying set of equations that bring together all of the laws of physical nature and that could explain all the features of the universe. In the emerging new cosmology, quanta are taken as basic. On a cosmic level entire stars and galaxies vibrate together.
Laszlo argues as Ken Wilber has as well that a genuine TOE must take into account, not only the physical universe, but also life, mind, culture and consciousness. Citing the new physics, Laszlo states dield the fundamental foundation of everything, that from which all is generated without itself being generated by other things, is a virtual-energy field known as the quantum vacuum.
However, the emergence of ever greater complexity in the universe sscience the presence of a factor that is neither matter nor akashoc. Coherence of the non-local kind is one such puzzle.
The smallest identifiable units of matter, force and light are not separate entities, but specific forms of underlying energy fields.
It is through the underlying energy fields that everything is connected to everything else. Quanta are not just in one place at one time, but everywhere.
Until they are actually observed or measured quanta exist simultaneously in several states at the same time. What happens to one cell in some way happens to all of them. It is important to distinguish between being in equilibrium a state achieved only in death and near equilibrium which requires an organism to be in coherence with the milieu.
The latter is referred to as a state of dynamic equilibrium. When the ball is at the bottom of a valley, it is at akasgic if any force moves it out of its position, it will roll back to it.
This is similar to thermal and chemical, so-called thermodynamical, equilibrium. But when the ball is at the top of a hill, it will roll down unless it can dynamically balance itself in its unstable position. This balancing act is an instance of dynamic equilibrium. He cites both anthropological and laboratory evidence to show that humans have non-local contact with others. All of these non-local or effects at a distance depend on the quantum vacuum or plenum.
It calls for the recognition that information is not an abstract concept: It is a part of the physical universe. And because it is present throughout nature, it is best conceptualized as an extended field. Akasha in Sanskrit and Indian cultures is what underlies all things and becomes all things. Our physical bodies do not register this field, but it can be reached through spiritual practice.
Using these concepts the author goes on to examine the source of the universe, and the nature of erviin both human and cosmic. The latter chapter I found the most interesting. It also contained a, perhaps, minor error. In talking about cosmic consciousness, he refers qkashic Richard Bucke ervun an American mystic. Actually, Richard Maurice Bucke was a psychiatrist working here in London Ontario in the late 19th century. He brought an enlightened approach to the treatment of mental illness in his role as Director of the London Insane Asylum.
Bucke did indeed write a book titled Cosmic Consciousness copies of which sometimes still show up in local antiquarian bookstores.
Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything by Ervin Laszlo
He was stimulated in his thinking by the American poet Walt Whitman. I enjoyed this book, though it could use a glossary paszlo terms.
It’s a conflation of science, pseudo-science, and nonsense. There are a few stretches where his efforts to popularize 20th century physics are pretty good, but I doubt that any reader who would benefit from them would be able to tell when he goes off the deep end.
He moves seamlessly between what is known, what might be known, and what he hopes might one day be known as though they all share the same status. Nov 16, Holly rated it really liked it. My kind of book. Apr 22, Kirk rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Might not be for everyone but these kinds of books that push use contemporary scientific research to push the limits of science are my cup o’ tea. I spend a lot of time just sitting and contemplating the universe. Evolving my own ideas about science, philosophy and spirituality and interestingly enough had come to pretty much the same conclusions arrived at in this book just before I happened to discover it by very random circumstances, which of course enhanced the over all experience.
If you like books that expand your mind and challenge the prevailing materialist view of the universe this is for you.

Jan 29, Stuart rated it liked it Shelves: I’ve been reading books on the search for a Theory of Everything. They can be lumped into the following categories: This tends much more toward 3.
I loved his first book on Systems Theory and also like h I’ve been reading books on the search for a Theory of Everything. I loved his first book on Systems Theory and also like his writing here.
He is obviously knowledgeable about the latest scientific findings in physics. I can accept the liberal premise that everything is connected.
However, when he starts linking quantum non-locality to telepathy and immortality, that’s where he loses me. Edit out that and the ideas are very interesting. Oct 15, Joseph Kauffman rated it it was amazing Shelves: Scientists have long been searching for a Theory of Everything, an equation that combines all forces in Nature.
What quantum laaszlo have now discovered is that there is a field that underlies all of existence, everything comes from it and returns to it. It is a field of information. In the book Science and the Akashic Field, Author Ervin Laszlo has put into words a magnificent description of this field in a language that nearly anyone interested can understand. One of my favorite books along Scientists have long been searching for a Theory of Everything, an equation that combines all forces in Nature.

I loved this book. It is a beautiful explanation of universal connection. This book is an illustrative example of how complex, philosophic and unachievable to experience a theory-of-everything TOE can become once you wander too far down the wrong rabbit hole. There are much simpler TOEs around.
