From the Inside Flap

Ervin Laszlo’s tour de force explores the paradoxes confounding modern science to offer nothing less than a new paradigm of reality—one in which the cosmos is a seamless whole, informed by a single, coherent consciousness manifest in us all. Bringing together science, philosophy, and metaphysics, Laszlo takes aim at conventional thinking about the dichotomies of mind and body, spirit and matter, and being and nonbeing to reveal how we are all part of an infinite cycle of existence unfolding in spacetime and beyond.

From the Back Cover

Ervin Laszlo’s tour de force, What Is Reality? The New Map of Cosmos and Consciousness, is the product of a half century of deep contemplation and cutting-edge scholarship. Laszlo, a renowned systems scientist and integral theorist, presents his concept of the “deep dimension” of reality—one where everything is connected in a seamless, irreducible whole.

By dissolving the boundaries between the study of natural science, the mind, and spirituality, Laszlo makes the case for a realm beyond spacetime, a place he calls the Akashic Holofield. This primordial ground of the cosmos holds all memory and thought in the universe, creating an interconnected and harmonious complex of systems that facilitates unlimited communication and evolution of consciousness among all beings.

What Is Reality? is enriched by insightful commentary from seventeen illustrious thinkers, scientists, and spiritual leaders. With a foreword from best-selling author Deepak Chopra and an introduction from Stanislav Grof, a leading psychiatrist and innovator in the field of transpersonal psychology, What Is Reality? is a groundbreaking look into the paradoxes that have confound modern scientists.
