Summary

What is the connection between physics and consciousness? In this groundbreaking new audiobook, Samuel Avery presents the quantum screen, a paradigm-shifting model of perceptual consciousness and of the world. This model looks to the enigmas of modern physics to demonstrate the primacy of consciousness - the essential oneness of spirit and matter.

Our intellectual culture is divided between two poles - science and religion. It's often assumed that these two disciplines - each individually essential and intriguing - cannot speak to one another. Physics cannot answer spiritual questions. Theories of consciousness have no place in the laboratory. In fact, the opposite is true.

While mental and physical experiences appear to be separate realities, Avery believes that a new understanding of dimensions (space, time, and mass) will unite them. Dimensions as structures of perceptual consciousness will awaken a creative convergence of quantum mechanics, relativity theory, and ancient meditation traditions.

Scientifically rigorous and spiritually profound, Avery's model is far from a mere concept or belief. He offers both an explanation of the quantum screen, as well as an opportunity to experience it directly. He deftly weaves humanism into the fabric of hard science. The result is illuminating and potentially life changing, with significant implications for how we understand nature, ourselves, and each other.

"Samuel Avery gives us a refreshingly original and delightfully well-written account of Reality, ripe with clarity and larger than scientific or religious narratives have yet to grasp. I enjoyed this highly original and deeply insightful look into the essence of consciousness and its relationships with the worlds of physics and biology." - Allan Combs, PhD, President of Society for Consciousness Studies, and award-winning author of Radiance of Being and Consciousness Explained Better

Speaks To My Soul

Best book yet for me. It's like someone putting into words what you think but couldn't explain yourself. Great listen.

Very disappointing

Author seems to lack even a basic understanding of the topics he tries to cover. For example he misused the terms ‘quantum leap’ and ‘superposition’ and tries to place a his limited understanding of what the ‘granular universe’ means in relation to quantum physics and our perception of reality. He does this by applying an abstract as f*%@ concept called the Quantum Screen. However, despite the title, this only makes up about 15% of the content of the works. The rest is a disjointed hodgepodge covering social commentary and philosophy, at a very basic level, the kind of obvious statements that blow your mind when you’re 13 years old.

The author also keeps making reference to ‘eastern’ philosophy, and then comes up with some of his own nonsense which doesn’t really make any sense and has nothing to do with eastern thought.

The section on Climate Change is very outdated, targets and figures are quoted which we knew were way off 10 years ago, so although the author tries to press how concerning the issue is, he again lacks any depth of the discussion, or understanding of the dire reality of what it means for civilisation.

For anyone considering this book I suggest you turn to any of Carlo Rovelli’s publications on Quantum Physics and Time; Appearance and Reality by Guy Newland and Relative Truth, Ultimate Truth by Tashi Tsering and Gordon McDougall. In fact, the author could do with reading them as well!
