Product description

Review

A Brief Tour of Higher Consciousness is a user-friendly, comical approach to what can be impenetrable subject matter. Bentov keeps in touch with his audience by providing it with images and physical analogies. For those who crave a more objective view of the same philosophy, Bentov's work is complemented by a selection of essays by other authors dealing with same subject matter in a more traditionally scientific manner. Though not as easy to read as Bentov's humorous writing, it is refreshing to see something annotated and sustantiated. It reminds us that the insights gained from Bentov's intuition have their roots in fields ranging from Eastern philosophy to modern physics.

A Brief Tour of Higher Consciousness is a light but satisfying foray into the cosmos. It will please both the layperson and the educated physicist, and will make anyone chuckle.-- "Patrick Brennan, Fate, February 2001"

A delightfully ingenious cosmic comedy on the nature and structure of ultimates. Here are travelers tales such as you rarely find; metaphysical jaunts from one end of the universe to the other.-- "Jean Houston, The Foundation for Mind Research"

He is another author who has successfully shown the parallels between science and spirituality. I most recommend his works, especially A Brief Tour of Higher Consciousness for it will inspire you in most unimaginable ways.-- "Jaye C. Beldo, The Konformist"

This is a book to puzzle you, delight you, and give you some 'Ahs' in your search to meet yourself and the nature of reality!-- "Arlene Goetze, Network for Women's Spirituality, March/April/May 2002"

From the Back Cover

CONSCIOUSNESS "A delightfully ingenious cosmic comedy on the nature and structure of ultimates. Here are travelers' tales such as you rarely find--metaphysical jaunts from one end of the universe to the other." --Jean Houston, Ph.D. The Foundation for Mind Research All aboard for the excursion of a lifetime as Itzhak Bentov, the celebrated engineer, inventor, and mystic, takes you on a tour of the universe, pure consciousness, and all that lies beyond. Using comical sketches, simple metaphors, and his famous wit and humor, Bentov explains the nature of reality, points out the sights in Nirvana and the Void, and eventually takes you to a meeting with your higher self. Along the way, Bentov illuminates the Kabbalistic principles of number and sound, the meaning of cosmic shapes and symbols, the consciousness of devas, and the nature of the absolute. Ultimately, he shows that the universe and thought are inseparable, and that the thoughts of all human beings affect each other and in turn the whole universe--an idea with obvious and far-reaching implications.Anyone interested in the inner reaches of the mind, the greater structure of the cosmos, and the spiritual evolution of humanity will find A Brief Tour of Higher Consciousness an informed and delightful traveling companion. ITZHAK BENTOV was a mechanical engineer who combined a brilliant mind for mechanisms and structures with a lifelong interest in meditation to describe quantum physics and the advanced states of higher awareness in ways easily grasped by readers. He is also the author of Stalking the Wild Pendulum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-think Reality and get let in on the Great Cosmic Joke
Reviewed in the United States on 28 November 2019
Itzhak Bentov is someone that most people don't know or study...but that's a serious mistake. This little book, along with his whimsical illustrations, makes you think and re-think what you believe is "reality." It's one of my favorite book recommendation for anyone interested in the big story or the "Great Cosmic Joke." I have read and re-read this book at least a half dozen times...and it's been one of the key influences fo the "Cosmic Journal" I created.
