Mysterium ~ Beyond the Cutting Edge of Science
by Anthony Burns
I loved this book, which provides enough basic information to enable the reader to explore the rapidly evolving areas where hard core science is moving ever closer to the spiritual and super natural.
Anthony Burns has achieved the near-impossible feat of producing an incredibly clear, accurate and succinct explanation of the mind blowing and counter-intuitive principles of relativity and quantum physics. (A very important point to bear in mind is that the author is a physicist, so he knows what he’s talking about and you can trust what he tells you.) He brings the same clarity and authority to a brief outline of basic neurology and philosophy. For anyone with an enquiring mind who cares about the big questions of life, the universe and everything, this book will prove to be an inspiration.
Cutting edge science is revealing more and more about the mysterious and mystical nature of the cosmos and our significance, or otherwise, within it; and without seeking to impose his own ideas or explanations, the author invites us to consider how recent and possible future scientific advances may shed light on paranormal and unexplained phenomena. Perhaps magic is physics we don’t yet understand.
My advice: buy this book and read it often.
