Review: From Science to God: A Physicist’s Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness

From Science to God: A Physicist's Journey into the Mystery of ConsciousnessFrom Science to God: A Physicist’s Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness by Peter Russell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s a path-breaking book for me. The initial chapters are a pure gem and it gave me a completely new perspective towards everything. When we say ‘life as we see it’, you never know how limited that ‘seeing’ is. Linking science to God is not easy, especially when those are considered as opposite poles by current world view. Peter Russell’s transition is almost seamless. I would stress on the word ‘almost’ because the chapters on consciousness to God were mainly based on Author’s own experiences with meditation and his journey to east. There weren’t enough on those topics to convince me to go along with the author’s views. I will go with a four for this one. This may not be a go-to book for those who seek the ultimate meaning of life and everything, but the book can point towards the right direction.
