9780615869452: Reality: A Sweeping New Vision of the Unity of Existence, Physical Reality, Information, Consciousness, Mind and Time

Reality is a groundbreaking new work that presents an entirely new understanding of reality. Based solidly in modern physics, cognitive science, information theory and direct experience it provides convincing explanations for many of the greatest mysteries of existence. Direct, accessible, and to the point it reveals one new insight after another. It explains why spacetime is not a fixed background to events but emerges piecewise as separate spacetimes from the dimensional relationships generated by quantum events, and how this leads to the unification of quantum theory and general relativity and resolves all quantum paradoxes. It explains why nature is forced to act randomly at the quantum level when linking and aligning these individual space-times and how this is the source of all randomness and free will. It explains why we all travel through time at the speed of light but can never leave the present moment, why there is an arrow of time, and a present moment in which we all exist. It explains how there are two kinds of time, the time of the present moment and clock time, and why this means our universe is the surface of a 4-dimensional hypersphere with present time as its radial dimension and how we actually see all 4-dimensions, It demonstrates the physical world we think we live in is actually a simulation in our mind, and when we subtract everything mind adds to this simulation all that is left is an evolving information system that continually computes the current state of the universe, and this is the true fundamental structure of reality. It also explains the true nature of consciousness and how all the attributes of consciousness but one are actually those of reality itself. It also answers the most fundamental questions of why something rather than nothing exists, and why what exists is what exists. Finally it explains how the true fundamental nature of reality is actually being experienced in every moment of our lives and how we can realize that more deeply and completely. All and all a book impossible to ignore which is sure to have a lasting impact on the study of reality for years to come.

About the Author:

Edgar L. Owen was born April 1st, 1941 and quickly realized that reality is not as it first appears to be. A child prodigy, he entered the University of Tulsa at 15 and received a B.S. with honors in science and mathematics with a minor in philosophy at age 18 before completing several more years of graduate study in physics and philosophy. In the early 60’s he moved to the Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco where he hung out with notables from the Beat Generation, and conducted an intense personal study of the nature of mind and consciousness. From there he traveled to Japan where he lived for three years studying Zen and Buddhist philosophy and subsisting as a Ronin English teacher. Upon returning to the US he began a career in computer science writing numerous programs in artificial intelligence, simulations, graphics and cellular automata while designing and managing advanced computer systems for the New York Federal Reserve Bank and AT&T. He then left the corporate world to start his own software business marketing his CAD programs which he ran for a number of years. Currently he owns a premier internet gallery of fine Ancient Art and Classical Numismatics. Deeply immersed in nature since childhood, and always considering it the ultimate source of his inspiration and knowledge of reality, he has served as Chairman of his local Environmental Commission and organized several campaigns to protect the local environment and its wildlife. Over the last several years he has worked to combine and organize the results of a lifetime of study of the various aspects of reality into a single coherent theory in this book. He now spends most of his time exploring how the wonderful awesome mystery of the presence of reality can be experienced more fully and deeply and enjoying his existence within it. Edgar currently lives in Northern NJ in a big old house on top of a hill where he communes with nature and enjoys the company of his wild visitors including the occasional human. Edgar is currently single and looking for a younger housekeeper companion :-). He can be contacted at EdgarOwen@att.net.
