"An excellent introduction to leading-edge ideas about the nature of consciousness."

Dean Radin Ph.D.
Author of Entangled Minds


"Origins of Consciousness is visionary, prophetic, grounded in comprehensive scholarship -- and beautifully written. It is without a doubt one of the best treatments of consciousness I have read. No one in the 21st century can consider themselves educated without an awareness of the evidence presented in this book."

Larry Dossey, MD

From the frontiers of modern physics and cosmology, to controversial psi experiments exploring telepathy and mind-matter interaction, the emerging view promises to change how we understand our place in the universe, our relationship to other life, and the nature of reality itself.
