Demystifying the Akasha: Consciousness and the Quantum Vacuum
Duality, including the spiritual/material and mind/body dichotomies, has been the basis of the Western paradigm for four hundred years, and has been blamed for major world problems.
Meanwhile, in the East, nonduality has prevailed. While science is generally seen in opposition to nonduality, this book sets out to prove the compatibility of the scientifi c outlook and the spiritual nonduality of India by constructing a mathematical model of cosmic consciousness. The ideas and their history are presented non technically in Part One, while the full mathematical details are presented in Part Two.

Praise for Demystifying the Akasha: Consciousness and the Quantum Vacuum
"A key contribution to bringing the concept of the Akasha into the ambit of contemporary science, and relating it to our understanding of consciousness. A book for all serious students of cosmos and consciousness."
