This was a very interesting book that has peaked my interest in nonlinear equations, Newton's work in alchemy, Carl Jung and Marie Louise von Franz' works, and Moshe Feldenkrais. Also, trying to visualize 5 and 6 dimensions makes my head hurt.

Recommends it for: those who want a different view on reality.
A continuation of Peat's book Synchronicity: The Bridge Between Mind and Matter . Delving deeper into synchroncity and reality. If you read the first, you have to read this one. It will blow your mind!

I liked this book, though it was very similar to "Synchronicity: The Bridge Between Matter and Mind." It discusses quantum physics and the underlying unity and symmetry of the world.
