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

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!

Venturing overhead

Sometimes it's a good idea to read something over your head, something you only partially understand----as long as you trust where the writer is going. Familiar with the author from The Pipeline and the Paradigm and the earlier Globalist Papers (which I both recommend), I ventured into Sam Avery's Quantum Screen, a challenging read giving rise to meditation, conversation, and a surprising optimism about where human consciousness is going.

A Unique Perspective

Avery presents a unique and thought provoking perspective on the nature on consciousness and the physical world that addresses the enigmatic findings of quantum physics and the inevitability of consciousness. Obviously thinking in progress, and a bit heavy on activism, it is nevertheless thought provoking as it turns conventional thinking inside out.

A new way to understand every day life!

This book shows an entirely new way to understand every day life. We don't need "matter" to explain what we see and touch. What is unique here is that this view is compatible with modern physics. I give it five stars and recommend it to be read by people who meditate, and are/or are fascinated by modern physics.

Is Avery the new Einstein?

Finally, a readable book that links consciousness to quantum physics. We have heard there is a connection. Philosopher/scientist Samuel Avery shows us what it is. A breakthrough book by an original thinker. Check it out for yourself!

We are overdue for the scientific paradigm shift!

Fascinating account for reality interpretation placing consciousness as primary with mass-energy,spacetime being derivatives of the mind.

Falls short of being convincing

Smacks of hackism, fails to land critical connections and spends too much time establishing tangential consequences of the ultimately unfounded “screen” ideas. A book which is claiming to approach Einstein in its revolutionary content should surely be more than 50% proof of concept. Even in the foreword, I get the feeling that this theory requires more faith in the author than is warranted by the ideas alone. While there ARE some great points about the nature of space-time and even some great conjecture on the subject of species-level observational consciousness, the final conclusions of the basic Quantum Screen theory still need a lot more supporting work.

Pseudo science

Very odd book. Not a lot of science. More opinion than anything and a very strange meditation lesson in the middle. Sounds like the recording was done on his phone. Not a professionally read book.

Avery has such great ideas about consciousness...

.. but he also believes in the global warming hoax, and clutters this book with it!

A Con Job about Moronic Climate "Changlings"

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Idiots who are not able to discern facts from fanatical climate change minions

What was most disappointing about Samuel Avery’s story?

He led us into a belief system of Quantum Consciousness and some elementary unscientific classification of senses into a new world hierarchical order that would brainswipe us into becoming better Gaia citizens of "mother liberal socialist tree chooming Earth. I should have know better when I sensed the over gleefulness liberal mind and narration of irrational exuberance based on taste and smell. A good start to what I hoped was a technical breakthrough of quantum theory. I smelled" global warming (apparently now called climate change and soon to be called "seasons) from the first chapter. Sure enough with only 90 minutes to go this klown went full social fascist climate change on us

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of River Kanoff?

Not narrators fault, but his over zealous delivery on faultty "science" is an inidicator that he knew were this tale was going...

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No redeeming qualities... However, it does serve as another anchor i the liberal crazed mindset coffin.

Any additional comments?

The first three hours were hopeful., but coulda been summed up in three minutes .. before the story went fully into irrational exuberative insanity. Please refund my cost since this insane prupose was not detected in reviews or publishers summary. This guy thinks he's a genius, but basically a self described radical activist who is unable to see around his field of vision which likely is an MSNBC or CNN video screen

Marxist Utopian Propaganda

Unfortunately this book turned out not to have any original ideas. It turned out only to be politically motivated propaganda novel forwarding the insanity of Marxism and the Progressive Utopian beliefs of Humans who believe they can save themselves by becoming better humans with the help of an enormous all-powerful government to guide them in their endeavors. It's total drivel. If you're a 'True-believer' in this philosophy, by all means, buy this book to further your re-education.
