John Chambers takes what, for many, is the incomprehensible subject of quantum physics and simplifies it with ease as he establishes a strong connection between spirituality and science. Written specifically for those with no prior knowledge in the field of physics, he begins by effortlessly explaining its history and development. He then shows how the universe can be modeled as a hologram, and how this holographic perspective resolves many of the paradoxes of quantum physics.
From there, he develops a quantum physical model for the soul, using a theory known as loop quantum gravity, a rival to string theory for the “theory of everything” title. Finally, he explores the connections between physics and spirituality and demonstrates how we are all interconnected at a fundamental level. A groundbreaking look at the connection between science and spirituality, The Physics of Being: Science, the Soul, and the Source of Creation will forever change how you look at the world.
"[T]he author's reflections on singularity, consciousness, solving the clone problem, time travel and the breathtaking capacity of holographic physics positively shimmer as alternative understandings. Notes toward a breaching of the science/spirituality divide, told with freethinking verve and scientific skepticism." - Kirkus Indie
"The Physics of Being makes physics easily accessible and interesting to the average reader, and whets the appetites of physics aficionados. The author’s writing style is conversational. His sense of humor and easy-going manner sets the reader at ease. From his explanation of the Greek origins of the word “atom” to current theories on time travel, his excitement for physics is palpable. A natural teacher, Chambers simplifies the thoughts, theories, and philosophies of the world’s greatest thinkers. He also applies them to subjects that for a long time were labeled as being outside the realms of science, such as the soul and even God. It is a dream of physicists to find the ultimate equation, a unified theory that makes sense of everything from the big bang to the idea of infinite realities. With the help of authors and scientists like Chambers, it is our duty to understand as much as we can about our universe and our place in its grandiosity." 4/5 Stars - ForeWord Clarion Reviews
