Presented by Joseph Selbie, author of The Physics of God
For millennia the saints, sages, and near-death experiencers have told us that, even at this moment, we live simultaneously in two bodies—a physical body and an interpenetrating energy body. We find confirmation for this in physics: According to M-theory, even at this moment, we exist simultaneously in two interpenetrating realms—a three-dimensional physical realm and a two-dimensional, nonlocal energy realm.
Understanding what our two bodies are and, especially, how they interact, helps us on many levels:
- Your health is an expression of the state of your energy body. You can learn how to change your energy body at will which then changes your physical body via the magic bridge of quantum entanglement.
- Your feelings are subtle energies moving through your energy body. You can learn to direct the movement of your emotional energy to your highest positive feelings through subtle energy control (pranayama), positive thinking, and meditative centering.
- Your energy body is the seat of your highest, best self. You can learn to shift from sensory awareness of the physical body to awareness of your energy body and effortlessly experience your innate bliss, love, and peace.
Joseph (Puru) Selbie makes the complex and obscure simple and clear. A dedicated meditator for over forty years, he has taught yoga and meditation throughout the US and Europe. He has also been an avid follower of the unfolding new paradigm of science—with groaning bookshelves to show for it—and he is known for creating bridges of understanding between the modern evidenced-based discoveries of science and the ancient experience-based discoveries of the mystics.
Selbie maintains several blogs, including Intersections, which explores how spirituality connects with culture and science. He has also authored, The Yugas, a factual look at India’s tradition of cyclical history, and a sci/fi fantasy series, The Protectors Diaries, inspired by the abilities of mystics.
Selbie is a founding member of Ananda—a meditation-based community and spiritual movement inspired by Paramhansa Yogananda. He lives with his wife at Ananda Village near Nevada City, California.
Compelling and concise, The Physics of God will make you believe in the unity of science and religion and eager to experience the personal transcendence that is the promise of both.
The Physics of God is reader-friendly; combining humor and well-chosen analogies to make complex subjects—both scientific and spiritual—easy to understand. There’s no math and there’s no dogma. Unlike many books in this genre that compare only a few concepts of religion with a few facets of science, The Physics of God, is complete. This short book concisely connects all the dots between science and the timeless concerns of religion: miracles, heaven, immortality, consciousness, transcendence, and God.
You can’t read this book without being deeply touched by the testimony of scores of mystics or be moved to embrace what you learn to change your life for the better. Your own high spiritual potential will never have felt clearer or more accessible.
Author Joseph Selbie shows how science and religion, far from being incompatible, share a deep congruence. He draws from the transcendent testimony of mystics the world over as well as from the findings of string theory, David Bohm’s version of quantum physics, quantum biology, neuroscience, and quantum physics itself to demonstrate that a physics of God is at hand!
This book will change the way you think of God.
It will change the way you think of science and it will change the way you think of religion.
And it will profoundly and movingly change the way you think of yourself.
Highlights of The Physics of God:
- matter is a light-show illusion and science has known it for a hundred years
- science has found the location of the heavens of all religions
- heaven is a hologram and the universe is its holographic projection
- you have two bodies and one of them is in the afterlife already
- how meditation gives us transcendent access to subtle realms
- your life force connects you to unseen worlds
- the common roots of near-death experience and mystical experience
- how the instantaneous physiological changes caused by multiple personality disorder explode the myth of the body as a biochemical machine
- how we turn on and turn off our genes with our minds
- the hidden secret of life: living systems are quantumly entangled
- intelligent Consciousness creates the universe through us
- we work miracles every moment of our lives
- we are so much more than we know
Endorsements for The Physics of God
So, if the philosophy of scientific materialism is wrong, can we conclude that God does exist? Does it mean that God is scientifically verifiable? That there is, in fact, a physics of God? Selbie makes a concise and convincing case that there is. He draws from the transcendent testimony of mystics the world over as well as from the findings of string theory, David Bohm’s version of quantum physics, quantum biology, neuroscience, and quantum physics itself to demonstrate that a physics of God is at hand! –Amit Goswami, author of The Self Aware Universe and presenter in the award-winning movie, What the Bleep Do We Know
In The Physics of God, Selbie clearly describes why phenomena labeled “transcendent,” “paranormal,” or “spiritual,” are more consistent with a modern scientific understanding of reality than is commonly supposed. A well-written metaphysical journey into an uncertain but perennially fascinating domain. –Dean Radin PhD, Chief Scientist, Institute of Noetic Sciences, author of Supernormal and Entangled Minds
It is essentially an article of faith among scientists that consciousness somehow arises in the brain and as such must be a product of evolution. This stubborn insistence that physical brain processes must be the source of consciousness will sooner or later prove to be a dead end. What will take its place, Selbie predicts, is recognition that consciousness is the only thing that is real, is the source of the apparent physical world, and is by its nature spiritual. Once we understand that all is consciousness manifesting in different ways, a whole new worldview will open up for mankind.—Bernard Haisch, astrophysicist, author of The God Theory
Selbie does an excellent job of dispelling the myth that religion and science are incompatible. His unbiased comparison of the findings of science with the testimony of those who have had profound spiritual experience reveal a clear underlying unity. The Physics of God is clear, simple, and engaging! —Susan Shumsky, award-winning author of Divine Revelation, and Awaken Your Third Eye
The Physics of God is the best book on the subject that I have ever read. It is a clear and lucid explanation of the interface between science and spirituality as well as consciousness and matter. Anyone, scientist or layman, will benefit from this marvelous book. –Jyotish Novak, author of How to Meditate and Touch of Light
Selbie takes complex scientific subjects, and not only make them easy to understand, but shows us how we can apply them to live a better, fuller, richer life today. He unifies the teachings of the saints, provides a clear context for NDEs, and reveals the spiritual foundation that is hidden in today’s sciences. Selbie paints a beautiful, uplifting and compelling picture of that which is felt by all but strangely unknown to many. This age of great science, made mute by material skepticism, is finally given a voice and a form in The Physics of God. It couldn’t be more timely or timeless. –Walter Cruttenden, author of Lost Star of Myth and Time
This treasure of a book can radically change the way you see life. The Physic of God masterfully unites science and religion, while revealing the underlying principles of the universe and of our existence.—Joseph Bharat Cornell, author of Sharing Nature and The Sky and Earth Touched Me
