In his exciting and original view of the universe, Itzhak Bentov has provided a new perspective on human consciousness and its limitless possibilities. Widely known and loved for his delightful humor and imagination, Bentov explains the familiar world of phenomena with perceptions that are as lucid as they are thrilling. He gives us a provocative picture of ourselves in an expanded, conscious, holistic universe, showing us that:

• Our bodies mirror the universe, down to the working of each cell.
• We are pulsating beings in a vibrating universe, in constant moti between the finite and the infinite.
• The universe and all matter is consciousness in the process of developing.
• Our brains are thought amplifiers, not thought’s source.
• The universe is a hologram. And so is the brain--a hologram interpreting a holographic universe.
• We can instantly reclaim any information ever known.
