It is no secret that modern knowledge has become specialised into increasingly narrower 'silos'. While this has had its advantages, more are becoming aware that important connections are being neglected.

What if our universe does not care to comply with the separations we have created? What if there are 'mega-phenomena', phenomena so broad in nature that they are concealed from the narrow view of one discipline alone, but whose discovery is vital to solving some of humanity's greatest challenges?

This book explores these questions by bringing together disciplines that have, for the last few hundred years, gone their separate ways. With the help of 'triangulation' and the 'Six Blind Men and the Elephant' fable, it shows how modern research in physics, biology, philosophy, parapsychology and religion can combine to reveal the mega-phenomenon of 'Subspace', an extra dimension to our existence which, if harnessed, could propel humanity into a new age of possibilities.

In bringing the pieces together, the book ultimately leads the reader to some startling propositions and acknowledges the role of the 'outsider' in bringing forward innovation.

Review quote

"Unputdownable. Exploiting the 'Six Blind Men and the Elephant' metaphor, Burfoot educates us on the integration of physics, biology, and spirituality in a powerful, entertaining, often humorous 'tour de force'. The book is lighthearted yet profound. It enlightens on practically every page. I highly recommend it to any person receptive to fresh thinking." Gerald H. Pollack, PhD, Professor, University of Washington, Editor-in-Chief, WATER, Executive Director, Institute for Venture Science, U.S.A. "'Finding the Elephant' is a clever synthesis of ideas from contemporary physics, biology, psychology and religion, all converging toward the idea of a deeper reality underpinning our everyday experience. Delightfully well-written, persuasive, and up-to-date." Dean Radin, PhD, Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) and Volunteer Faculty in the Department of Psychology at Sonoma State University, Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal Explore and award-winning and best-selling author - The Conscious Universe, Entangled Minds and Supernormal. "David Burfoot is one of an emerging new cadre of scientists, physicians, and scholars in many disciplines who, on the basis of data, see all life as interdependent and interconnected, and recognize that there is a nonlocal aspect to consciousness. This growing community understands that on the basis of research and the facts it yields, social processes which have fostering wellbeing as their first priority are universally cheaper, more efficient, more effective, more productive, and pleasanter to live under. Finding The Elephant, is a groundbreaking example of this new thinking and where it leads." Stephan A. Schwartz, author and distinguished consulting faculty member at Saybrook University, research associate of the Laboratories for Fundamental Research, editor of the daily web publication, and columnist for the peer-reviewed research journal Explore. He has publishced 4 books and over 100 technical papers and has been on the editorial staff of National Geographic. "Here we are living in hyperspecialized modern society that is producing a cornucopia of technological wonders. But in the process the people enjoying these toys have almost totally forgotten who they are as human beings connected with themselves and the universe. David Burfoot's book proposes we find the elephant, the larger context of consciousness and our place in the universe instead of focusing on the material plane that the majority of contemporary scientists want us to believe is the total elephant. He provides a plethora of perspectives to show the extreme limitations of the current scientific/religious materialist perspective that modern western education inculcates so well." Arthur Buehler, PhD, Senior Lecturer, School of Art History, Classics and Religious Studies, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand "This book is a very welcome addition to the growing literature on post-materialist science. By reading this update, the reader can only conclude that a consciousness-based paradigm is aborning." Amit Goswami, PhD, retired full Professor from the University of Oregon's Department of Physics, U.S.A., and author of Quantum Creativity: Think Quantum, Be Creative and Quantum Economics: Unleashing the Power of an Economics of Consciousness. "A genuinely thought-provoking, witty, engaging and above all fascinating read with some profound arguments and insights that will make you see the world differently. Can the answer be that simple? Read it and find out..."Julie Beesley, Doctoral Researcher in Criminology and Complexity Science, Sydney Law School, University of Sydney and Physics Honours Degree, Imperial College London.
