Why is there something rather than nothing? A Metaphysics of Esoteric Consciousness

We exist, we are beginning to understand why and how, but can we survive - or not?


CATEGORIZED IN

'Why is there something, rather than nothing?'
From the ancient text found on The Emerald Tablet, the motion implicit in achieving higher levels of consciousness is explored through questions surrounding whether evolution proceeds through natural selection or by controlled design and whether the nature of evolution itself is changing.
Along our journey we ask whether Gaia theory can by extended beyond an earthly arena, whether science and religion are really incompatible and how do paranormal experiences, such as clairvoyance, actually arise.
Considerations of free will, choice, the nature of time and virtue will lead us to identify the obstacles to be found in the way of our survival and whether, or not, we are capable of developing the means to prevent the extinction of the human race.



REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

The author took up the study of philosophy and shamanism later in life and has been retired from the construction industry since 2010. This books shows that he has put his time to excellent use with a wide-ranging study of some of the most fundamental themes in philosophy as indicated by the subtitle: why there is something rather than nothing – a metaphysics of esoteric consciousness. His point of departure is a deep understanding of the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus and the way its principles have books in brief Network Review Winter 2015-16 65 www.scimednet.org been worked out. The first part explores the nature and structure of the cosmos and consciousness based on the Hermetic distinction between the subtle and material realms and their interaction. Each chapter helpfully summarises the story so far, which includes the role of the creative vis formatrix or formative principle that is also expressed in the law of attraction where the inside becomes the outside. In this overall process, death plays an important creative role in evolution as the many possible forms of the One are made manifest as co-creation. The universe is a realm of interaction and self-regulation whose bedrock is consciousness. Evolution is a basic form of self-becoming but our challenge is whether we can evolve rapidly enough to resolve the difficulties of our own making. In this respect, the interaction of the subtle and the material as realised by individual human beings is crucial. This opens up the possibility of a concentration of goodness in the creation of a unified planetary environment based on Gaian principles. This in turn depends on how many of us can wake up – in which process this book is an important signpost. ~ David Lorimer, Paradigm Explorer

Synopsis: 'Why is there something, rather than nothing?' From the ancient text found on The Emerald Tablet, the motion implicit in achieving higher levels of consciousness is explored through questions surrounding whether evolution proceeds through natural selection or by controlled design and whether the nature of evolution itself is changing. Along our journey we ask whether Gaia theory can by extended beyond an earthly arena, whether science and religion are really incompatible and how do paranormal experiences, such as clairvoyance, actually arise. Considerations of free will, choice, the nature of time and virtue will lead us to identify the obstacles to be found in the way of our survival and whether, or not, we are capable of developing the means to prevent the extinction of the human race. Critique: An inherently fascinating, utterly absorbing, occasionally iconoclastic, thoughtful and thought-provoking read, "The Book of Becoming: Why Is There Something Rather Than Nothing? A Metaphysics of Esoteric Consciousness" is a compelling and highly recommended addition to personal, community, and academic library Metaphysical Studies reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists. It should be noted that "The Book of Becoming" is also available in a Kindle edition ($15.99). John Burroughs Reviewer ~ John Burrough's Bookshelf, Midwest Book Review
