    Science and the Spiritual influence on our lives and its historical context are linked in this book The only problem is that there are some errors in Braden s scientific reasoning, which are glossed over, before he arrives at a theoretical construct, referred to as a deep truth For example, recently a panel of scientists determined that they were 95% certain, that since the 1950 s man has been responsible for the sharp worsening of climate change global warming However, Gregg Braden says m Science and the Spiritual influence on our lives and its historical context are linked in this book The only problem is that there are some errors in Braden s scientific reasoning, which are glossed over, before he arrives at a theoretical construct, referred to as a deep truth For example, recently a panel of scientists determined that they were 95% certain, that since the 1950 s man has been responsible for the sharp worsening of climate change global warming However, Gregg Braden says man is not responsible for global warming, there is a natural cycle of climate change Gregg Braden also favors intelligent design in humans, but accepts some evolutionary change in animals he states that the DNA of primitive man and modern man are too dissimilar, to have a direct evolutionary connection he does not account for mutation of genes and alterations in the environment, as two possible factors in the DNA differences between primitive and modern man Gregg Braden asserts that scientists assume that civilization is only about 5,000 years old, yet various tribes have oral histories ofadvanced civilizations at least 9 or 10,000 years old I don t think scientists dispute that there could be much older civilizations than ours, advanced in science and math, that have yet to be unearthed and explored Maybe he is referring to the Bible s account of civilization, but I am unsure These are a few of the possible scientific assertions that are questionable Personally, I can t look at the wonders of the universe, the awe of people s creative inspiration, and not feel that there is a God and spiritual influence in our lives I just don t think Gregg Braden or any one scientist has the ability to link both science and the spiritual at this time We all have small pieces to the puzzle, that link the mystery of our being and wonders of our existence But first, we have to make sure that each piece of science is accurately determined, before we can join these pieces into a semblance of our cosmic puzzle

    The epigraph to Chapter 2 is by E O Wilson Sometimes a concept is baffling not because it is profound but because it is wrong This book baffled me.The idea of a deep truth, as Niels Bohr expressed it, is that its negation is also a deep truth Life s apparent contradictions can certainly run deep But when one writes a fact based book about subjects including evolution, climate change, war, and when a fetus becomes a human being, one cannot simply make contradictory statements and pass The epigraph to Chapter 2 is by E O Wilson Sometimes a concept is baffling not because it is profound but because it is wrong This book baffled me.The idea of a deep truth, as Niels Bohr expressed it, is that its negation is also a deep truth Life s apparent contradictions can certainly run deep But when one writes a fact based book about subjects including evolution, climate change, war, and when a fetus becomes a human being, one cannot simply make contradictory statements and pass them off as deep truth.Braden acknowledges that the Earth experiences 100,000 year climate cycles within which are nested shorter term cycles He then says they are all about the Earth s location in space the tilt, wobble, and angle of our planet relative to the sun and the core of the Milky Way Especially since he qualifies this with I am definitely not a climate scientist, he doesn t seem to have the credentials to make the oversimplification that climate is all about anything in particular One argument in particular left me underwhelmed Quoting an article in the journal CO2 Science as saying that changes in atmospheric CO2 content never precede changes in air temperature, he concluded that Antarctic ice core data representing cycles over the last 800,000 years on Earth shows that the CO2 levels actually lag behind the rise in temperature and cannot be the reason for the warming I am not a climate scientist either, yet easily I can imagine that just because atmospheric CO2 increase was a lagging indicator of warming in pre industrial times does not mean it cannot be a leading indicator in the industrial era that is, given the relatively recent behavior of burning massive amounts of coal and oil as fuel, CO2 today might play a role in climate change that is different from the role it played in the past This is just speculation on my part, but my ability to raise such a basic question when the author has already claimed an open and shut case suggests a fundamental flaw in his argument This is characteristic of the entire book logical arguments are made, but they are so sweeping in scope and so loosely screwed at the ends that they are not persuasive at all.Other times, imprecision is a major obstacle In discussing Roe v Wade, the U.S Supreme Court decision that ruled it to be unconstitutional for states to outlaw abortion, Braden writes, the ultimate decision was left to the discretion of local governments Whether or not abortion is legal would still be based largely upon the values and beliefs of the individual communities This is imprecise enough as to be inaccurate and misleading While each U.S state regulates abortion differently, no U.S state has the authority to outlaw it entirely That was the whole point of Roe v Wade I am certain the author knows this, but in sentences like this it is not communicated well The contradictions seemed to memessy than deep He writes There can be little doubt on the part of anyone with an honest and open mind that the process of evolution, in and of itself, is very real It is a fact that we see confirmed in the fossil record of species living in the past A few pages later, he writes, If species do, in fact, truly evolve with new DNA, rather than adapt over time, it s reasonable to expect that somewhere in the ongoing search that began in 1859, at least one transitional form would be discovered in the fossil recordthere is no physical evidence of transitional species to support this assumption of evolution Well, were transitional species discovered in the fossil record or not, and does this confirm evolution or not The author presents as someone who travels and reads a lot and has all the best intentions to inspire people to live thoughtful, peaceful lives The text is peppered with interesting questions such as what would it mean to realize that the wars we fight are over someone else s ideas The problem is that these questions don t build on each other and don t go anywhere Unsupported platitudes such as in our natural state, we are truly wired for peace or when we know the truth of the situation, the choices become clear and the decisions obvious are ultimately not satisfying

    This is certainly a unique book It definitely made me think, which is good, but ultimately it providedquestions than answers And while not very satisfying, that is ok But I am basically left with a somewhat confused feeling The best part is the thought provoking points he raised.Before getting into the book, I can t help but try to figure out who the heck the author is and where he is coming from For better or worse, I always try to somewhat peg and categorize the authors of books I r This is certainly a unique book It definitely made me think, which is good, but ultimately it providedquestions than answers And while not very satisfying, that is ok But I am basically left with a somewhat confused feeling The best part is the thought provoking points he raised.Before getting into the book, I can t help but try to figure out who the heck the author is and where he is coming from For better or worse, I always try to somewhat peg and categorize the authors of books I read The best I could come up with is he is a New Age guy or maybe a practitioner of Mayanism a new term for me, discovered when I looked up Gregg Braden in Wikipedia It bothers me a little bit that his bio lists all these high powered scientific and engineering type jobs, yet nowhere does it say what if any degree he has He did mention being an oceanography major in college Not that I am so enad of college degrees, but when someone espouses scientific information, I usually want to know their educational background.So anyway, definitely the most controversial statement he makes is that he apparently believes in intelligent design He does make a believable case that it is of course amazing that we came to develop to such a complex machine based on chance mutations, and he plays the missing link arguments for all it is worth Of course this support for intelligent design was a big red flag to me An interesting side point here is that I learned a lot about Darwin and especially chilling were the author s examples of Mein Kampf and Mao s Little Red Book apparently using Darwin s survival of the fittest ideas as a basis for their author s mass murdering Certainly an eye opener, especially when contrasted with Darwin himself who supposedly backpedaled from all this competition stuff in his much less well known later book, The Descent of Man And another interesting side note is in the chapter entitled War Doesn t Work Any , the author makes a reference to the book No Contest The Case Against Competition by Alfie Kohn 1992 that sounds interesting enough to me that I want to read it Another interesting reference is the mention of Russian psychologist Peter Kropotkin who wrote the book Mutual Aid A Factor of Evolution in 1902, that described for one thing how ants cooperate so well.So the bottom line is I am glad I read this book, but at times it seemed sort of muddled and confused and definitely speculative It was basically all over the map But that is also its strength, in that it raises questions left and right My natural suspicion of anything new agey really kicked in So while I admire the author s desire to figure out and fix the world and his overall thoughtfulness and curiosity, I was put off by his wild speculations and somewhat flimsy proofs of ideas that he believes But in the end the book was worth it for the interesting things I learned and its references

    It was interesting Most of his information did not surprise me He mentions that climate change is not human induced due to the evidence in geological records It left me wondering if climate change has increased in intensity and in speed due to humans It would have been nice if he had been clearer on that point.

    I purchased this book after a lecture by the author Gregg Braden does a fantastic job of bridging the gap between science and spirit in a way that anyone can understand The only pre requisite An open mind Loved this book and I ll be readingif Gregg s work The Divine Matrix is next.

    Beautiful scientific work with a sensitive information Everybody with deep questions should read this book

    Wow Although this book asksquestions than provides answers, it has changed the way I think and perceive human origins and the existing world circumstances that we find ourselves in There has been a leap in human development not explainable by Theory of Evolution There have been cycles of warming and cooling as well as species going extinct New discoveries are being made about ancient civilization that started after the last ice age Scientific discoveries suggest humans are pla Wow Although this book asksquestions than provides answers, it has changed the way I think and perceive human origins and the existing world circumstances that we find ourselves in There has been a leap in human development not explainable by Theory of Evolution There have been cycles of warming and cooling as well as species going extinct New discoveries are being made about ancient civilization that started after the last ice age Scientific discoveries suggest humans are placed by intelligent design rather than evolution Humans are wired for basic goodness rather than war and competition Fascinating collection of theories that inspires me to think and research deeper Eye opening and recommended

    Great book As a scientist who has learned that the truth is not complete without spirituality, I appreciate Gregg s approach Scientist need to realize not everything can be explained factually I m glad I was recommended this book, I felt I was alone with my beliefs but I realize many people out there make the important link between science and spirituality I truly enjoyed reading this book.
