"Time is a fire that consumes me, but I am that fire"
J. L. Borges



"every soul desires something impossible"



The book starts with the dialogue between the Queen and Alice on Wonderland. The Queen is suggesting to Alice that memory may work both ways: regarding past, and regarding future. Yes, but how can you recall something which didn't happen yet?

The author makes the case for the premise that what's just "possibility", may become "probability"; i.e. time travel may turn into reality. Drawing i

I've listened to the audio version of this book and, in my opinion, Dr. Quantum tries hard to explain something unexplainable. Only logic seeks and deals thoroughly with explanations and there's nothing logical about remembering your future or imagining your past, so in this case, one could say it'd be illogical to use logic for time travel, even when talking using only the mind.

One needs a vehicle or a vessel to travel. In my opinion, Self is this vessel. Change the Self; change the vessel. Onc

Nice introduction to some basic physics and quantum physics. I struggled with the translation from quantum physics and time travel theories to mind yoga and time travel. I understand that the quantum concepts are difficult to prove outright in the "real" world (the author recognizes this and states it a few times in the text). At the same time, a tad sprinkling of scientific imagination is definitely needed to enter the world of quantum physics and time travel, especially if it involves the mind ...more

This work was extremely interesting. I've always been a fan of science and this book was all needed.

Strangely however, while I was more than halfway through, I started and finished "Conversations with God 4 - Awenken the Species", and both books, in my personnal opinion, explain the same concept, albeit very differently. I thought that the sub-space possibility waves and probability curves quite fit CWG's author way of wxplaining how we chose our future.

Some might not like the comparison but I r

Phew - I don't consider myself dimwitted, but this was a tough one to plough through. Immensely technical in parts, Wolf attempts to explain how mental time travel is possible - but have I learned from this book how to do it? You'll have to wait and see...
Conceptually, Wolf's theory resembles ancient Vedic philosophy as well as some Buddhist tenets, and tries to tie them into quantum physics. Drop the trappings of ego, and because linear time is created by ego, you should be able to step outside

It is precisely at the point where science and spirituality meet that we come to find the magical. A physicist who can take us there is Fred Alan Wolf, who as the author of nearly a dozen works that seek to abridge the divide between the two fields, has been described as a scientist on the “fringes of mainstream science”. In The Yoga of Time Travel, Wolf ventures into the realm of quantum physics by exploring black holes, parallel universes, and wormholes to entertain the idea that spiritual pra ...more

I'm not a mathematician/physicist type but I've loved the concept of physics/quantum physics etc since I was really young. I also have loved studying alternative philsophies like yoga. Fred Wolfe does a fantastic job in bringing this to the lay reader. There were 2-3 chapters that gave me a challenge. I stuck with it and was rewarded later by being able to keep up as he refers to what he's explained before to build to where he's going with it. At the end, a wonderful synopsis of each chapter hel ...more

Of all the books I've read that deal with the intersection of Eastern Spirituality and quantum physics, this one falls the heaviest on physics content. It's intriguing and interesting, but I'm left wishing for just a little more yoga.

Ātrs skrējiens gar fizikas, kvantu fizikas, relativitātes un stīgu teorijas, psiholoģijas, meditācijas un apzinātības lauciņiem. Gar pašu maliņu, tipinot un balansējot.
