Abysses rated it it was amazing May 18, Since the low level microwave radiation that collapses into the condensed phase of consciousness does not stop at the skin, our consciousness inter-relates with other living and perhaps non-living matter in the universe.

I became aware of this book when it was prominently displayed on a bookshelf in the office of a psychiatrist on a forgettable TV series.

Being is one — particle and wave, though its two prongs of behavior are not specifically determinable. A Physics of Everyday Life.

The Quantum Self

We are selves, trying to survive, yet that survival depends on adapting to the environment, including social groups. I came back to The Quantum Self satisfied with its plausibility.

Like a celestial choir of a myriad of voices each voice a cellular molecule – we have consciousness. A Quantum Mechanical Model of Consciousness. When more energy is pumped into an individual by the focused attention of others, xanah would expect the unity of consciousness and therefore its clarity to be increased.


Refresh and try again. But I think it is wrong. Quantum consciousness expands by forming ever-greater wholes that can extend to cosmic knowing. Previous to his discovery these were thought to exist only in superfluids and superconductors — at very low temperatures.

One of the consequences of the Bose-Einstein condensate model is that the unity of consciousness will be affected by the amount of energy pumped into a system. Zohar uses quantum qjantum to aptly explain the physical basis of consciousness.

For a great many physical processes are the result of these so-called virtual transitions. I had reached a level of understanding of the theory that was good enough to talk the talk, but poor enough to be completely unable to walk the walk.

The Quantum Self by Danah Zohar, A Review by Bobby Matherne

I decide to move my arm and it moves. Most important, Zohar shows how the vitality of the new physics combats the alienation and fragmentation of twentieth-century life, and replaces it with a model of reality in which the universe itself may possess a type of consciousness, of which human consciousness is one expression.
