really liked it

This is a great book at showing the parallels between mystical and scientific research.

It also does a great job of stimulating visual imagination in the realm of the 4th dimension. This is the first book I have read that has managed to really explain the paradox of quantum-reality more clearly and I can now finally how the paradox of time and location are fundamental issues relating to the fabric of particles rather than with measuring techniques. It also gives a very good visual description of the impact preparation and thus observer plays on results and how nothing you can do can stop you from influencing the particle because of your intention to measure it

The book would have gotten 5-stars but it went too deep for too long near the end w/o further description of the meaning and purpose of such depth. Fritov Capra does this in his other books once in a while too; but in general Fritov is an excellent writer with a very clear and good voice to follow.

Excellent book.
