Mind Into Matter: A New Alchemy of Science and Spirit

4.01  ·  Rating Details ·  120 Ratings  ·  11 Reviews
Alchemists of old attempted to make sense of the universe - to discover the connection between mind and matter. Some of today's scientists, in particular quantum physicists, are doing the same. In his latest contribution to the study of consciousness, physicist Fred Alan Wolf reveals what he calls the new alchemy - a melding of the ideas of the old alchemists and the new s ...more

I just loved this book. I like how it was written too -- the style. It's a combination of quantum physics, theology, new age spiritualism and jewish mysticism. You might think that's a really odd mixture. It's very thought provoking.

An interesting and controversial mix of quantum mechanics, psychology and spirituality. The subtle meaning of this book, can be better understood by reading other Ramtha books and budist texts.

This book is not at all what I expected -- more metaphysics than physics. I gave up on it at one point because it was just so "out there" -- and I'm an "out there" kind of person, which tells you how very far out this one goes.

Nothing tires me out more than speculation presented as "science" or spirituality. In order to gain my interest, you have to start with something familiar and explain it in a new way. Too many books seem to assume that if you're writing about spirituality, you can just cr

Wolf is on my list of top five writers on the topic of spirituality and science. He writes to my own spiritual experience; if it weren't for my introduction to the world of quantum mechanics, I doubt I would be having one at all. It's rare to see a scientist "come out of the closet" as being highly spiritual, and, in Wolf's case, even mystical - although it is less uncommon in the world of quantum physics, where possibilities are unlimited.

In this book, as in most of Wolf's books, he is able to

I read this as a follow-on to one of Wolf's earlier books, The Spiritual Universe. As with the latter book it seemed to me that Wolf did not effectively make the transition from a scientific perspective of reality to a spiritual or metaphysical perpspective of reality, or adequately demonstrate a relationship between them. I was ultimately also left confused about the time loop and how the future determines the present, but I think that that confusion is grounded more in my difficulty in thinkin ...more

I love Fred Wolf's books. I've been a fan of his since seeing him in the movie What the Bleep Do We Know?. His explorations into the crossover between quantum physics and spirituality--like in his book about the physics of shamanism (The Eagle's Quest) are great brain-expanders. I've learned so much hard science from him, just because he's such a great story-teller while he's at it. Mind Into Matter was another great read! It's my third time reading it, and each time I grasp something new.

While I really enjoyed reading Fred Alan Wolf's "Taking the Quantum Leap", I found this one harder to grasp. I did manage to take home a few concepts from it, but other parts seemed like they would need more study to really understand what he was getting at. Since it was a library loan, I really didn't have enough time to get in and "study" the material. Still, the bits I grasped were informative, and I wouldn't say it was a wasted read.

Didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would-- didn't dig the correlation between Hebrew letters and the concepts of quantum physics. Won't toss it, may read it again at some later date, after learning more on the topic, to see if I have a eureka moment with it.

Another great work on the notion of particle physics and how we create our own reality. I had some trouble grasping all the ideas -- but the overall notion of how we affect our lives by how we think rang true.

Read before reading "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle, and understood some. Read again after reading "The Power of Now" ... understood much!
