The Crisis:Best-selling author and visionary scientist Gregg Braden suggests that the hottest topics that divide us as families, cultures, and nations—seemingly disparate issues such as war, terrorism, abortion, genocide, poverty, economic collapse, climate change, and nuclear threats—are actually related. They all stem from a worldview based upon the false assumptions of

Science and the Spiritual influence on our lives and its historical context are linked in this book. The only problem is that there are some errors in Braden's scientific reasoning, which are glossed over, before he arrives at a theoretical construct, referred to as a"deep truth". For example, recently a panel of scientists determined that they were 95% certain, that since the 1950's man has been responsible for the sharp worsening of climate change (global warming). However, Gregg Braden says m ...more

The epigraph to Chapter 2 is by E. O. Wilson: "Sometimes a concept is baffling not because it is profound but because it is wrong." This book baffled me.

The idea of a "deep truth," as Niels Bohr expressed it, is that "its negation is also a deep truth." Life's apparent contradictions can certainly run deep. But when one writes a fact-based book about subjects including evolution, climate change, war, and when a fetus becomes a human being, one cannot simply make contradictory statements and pass

This is certainly a unique book. It definitely made me think, which is good, but ultimately it provided more questions than answers. And while not very satisfying, that is ok. But I am basically left with a somewhat confused feeling. The best part is the thought-provoking points he raised.

Before getting into the book, I can't help but try to figure out who the heck the author is and where he is coming from. For better or worse, I always try to somewhat peg and categorize the authors of books I r

İlgili güncellemelerden birinde kitabın oldukça ilgi çekici bir okuma olanağı sunduğundan bahsetmiştim. Fikrim kitabı bitirdikten sonra da değişmedi, özellikle kitaptaki evrimle ilgili bilimsel araştırmalara dayanarak verilen bilgilerin fazlasıyla ilgimi çektiğini söyleyebilirim çünkü konuya ilişkin doğru olduğunu düşündüklerimiz ve aslında olanları bir arada görme imkanı sunan bir kitaptı. Kitapta ayrıca bahsedilen sürdürülebilir bir yaşam kurabilme fikri, hali hazırda yaşıyor olduğumuz şu günl ...more

It was interesting. Most of his information did not surprise me. He mentions that climate change is not human induced due to the evidence in geological records. It left me wondering if climate change has increased in intensity and in speed due to humans. It would have been nice if he had been clearer on that point.

I purchased this book after a lecture by the author. Gregg Braden does a fantastic job of bridging the gap between science and spirit in a way that anyone can understand. The only pre requisite? An open mind. Loved this book and I'll be reading more if Gregg's work. The Divine Matrix is next.

Wow. Although this book asks more questions than provides answers, it has changed the way I think and perceive human origins and the existing world circumstances that we find ourselves in.

- There has been a leap in human development not explainable by Theory of Evolution.
- There have been cycles of warming and cooling as well as species going extinct.
- New discoveries are being made about ancient civilization that started after the last ice age.
- Scientific discoveries suggest humans are pla

New York Times best-selling author Gregg Braden, who is internationally renowned as a pioneer in bridging science, ancient wisdom, and the real world and had successful vocations as an energy crisis computer geologist, Cold War senior computer systems designer, and Cisco Systems technical operations manager, concludes the following:
Fact: The false assumptions of long-held beliefs regarding evolution and human origins now make little sense in the presence of new discoveries throughout the science

I enjoy reading Gregg Braden's books . . .don't always agree on all his points, but he does make things interesting. He is a courageous writer and is not afraid to say what he thinks.
Gregg spends a lot of time talking about ancient civilizations and their wisdom. I am not sure he can support the concept that they were as knowledgeble as he suggests. It is true that we are still wondering how the pyramids were built and the many other ancient buildings that exist today, but to suggest that they h

I think it was worth reading.
It gets one thinking and wondering about the world we live in.
It questions some big concepts that are generally accepted.
It will make many people a little uncomfortable as he makes claims that contradict concepts that people have based their world perspectives on: Evolution versus creationism, Man Made Climate change versus natural climate change, When is a life a life, how old is modern civilization, how will man survive the coming challenges.
It covers so much at a

Gregg Braden, who is arguably the brightest author bridging science and spirituality, offers this look at our current world crises and how we can fix them. In order to move into the future, he advises, we must first know more about our origins. He lays out scientific evidence that suggests mankind is more than 200,000 years old, is part of an overall intelligent design, and is inherently a peaceful species (this assertion I really have trouble with). He says the power and intention of our presen ...more

I always love books by Gregg Braden...
This is an interesting perspective on some deep issues that we humans are facing right now. I do believe that we are at a crossroads of some kind... and I do believe that information is kept from us that keep us from knowing exactly what those issues are
Our history is not as it is taught to us in school
I may not agree with everything that Gregg Braden says - does anyone ever agree 100% with anyone :) But I do agree with him on most points - and he has me loo

This book was for me an adventure in watching the dance of science and true spirituality I had only hoped for. Gregg's background in the sciences and technology made him an unlikely bringer of the message yet the paradox was a dramatic launch to his message. Having already researched some of the material myself, I was pleased to see it laid out clearly and well explained with personal narrative and experience. An excellent asset to anyone who is seeking truth.
Aug 30, 2014 rated it it was ok
This book is highly questionable because the author states right up front that he hasn't verified his sources and puts together lots of theory without facts. Then he moves through the book talking as if he has thoroughly researched every word. I keep thinking I would put it down, but wanted to see where he went with his ideas. The ending is very hopeful and that alone may be worth reading the book. I did completely skip the chapter that seemed excessively religious.

Delves into lots of different subjects - Darwins theory of evolution, how old is civilisation anyway, global warming in the past & future. Lots of crisis' going on in the world at the moment & the author suggests that the way to find solutions to our problems is to look to our past - which is constantly evolving as new discoveries are made (discoveries that take 8-15yrs to make it into school textbooks).

Повече научна литература, със скучен начин на изразяване.
• еволюцията сама по себе си не обяснява съществуването ни.
• на Земята сме много по-отдавна, отколкото се признава от конвенционалната история.
• не сме създадени за война, а за мир.
• намираме се в преломен момент от съществуването си.

An eye-opener illuminating old, worn out beliefs replaced by the keen, open-minded scientific observations of our fascinating world. It helps me appreciate the growing body of evidence that we are all connected by consciousness, and I find that science does not preclude spirituality. Braden's passion for his work and that of others is delightfully clear.

The author is endlessly fascinating. This book can give you a perspective you did not get in school and never will get from mainstream media. You can find many interviews and talks by Gregg Braden on YouTube.

Labākais grāmatā bija iespēja novērot lasītāju pārliecināšanas tehnikas: lietot lielus vārdus, tad tos izskaidrot pa savam, atkārtot viedokli līdz tas šķietami kļūst par faktu, selektīvi citēt atzītas autoritātes. Vismaz autora mērķis ir atbalstāms, pat ja izvēlētais ceļš izraisa tikai dusmas.
