Lenses of Perception
- How did the universe come into existence out of nothing?
- Why is biological life irreducible?
- What deeper principles create the laws of nature?
- How does our mind control our body?
reads like a detective novel, as it dives into the foundations of physical reality and uncovers the surprising role of consciousness. A new story emerges from the experiments of leading scientists.
Our scientific way of looking at the world as outsiders was pioneered by Isaac Newton. This third-person "lens of perception" allows us to objectively analyze forces with incredible precision. But the limitations of this lens are clear.
It can't explain the paradoxes of quantum mechanics or figure out how life began. It doesn't even see consciousness, since awareness is invisible to outsiders. This is why physicists have been struggling with the same problems for decades.Lenses of Perception
offers promising solutions to "The Five Unsolved Problems of Physics." It also restores a crucial missing piece to the story of evolution. And it describes how our mind controls our body -- a puzzle that has baffled scientists for centuries.
These mysteries are resolved, not by introducing new theoretical concepts, but through three simple lenses of perception."An important work for scientists who have suspected that consciousness and subjective perceptions are fundamental to the universe and not some epi-phenomenon. Marman's work brings 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-person points of view into the fabric of the universe. The reader will never look at the world the same."
