Description

Consciousness creates all material reality. Biological processes do not create consciousness. This conceptual breakthrough turns traditional scientific thinking upside down. In An End to Upside Down Thinking, Mark Gober traces his journey - he explores compelling scientific evidence from a diverse set of disciplines, ranging from psychic phenomena to near-death experiences to quantum physics and beyond. With cutting-edge thinkers like two-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr. Ervin Laszlo, chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences Dr. Dean Radin, and New York Times best-selling author Larry Dossey, MD, supporting this thesis, this book will rock the scientific community and mainstream generalists interested in understanding the true nature of reality. 

Today's disarray around the globe can be linked, at its core, to a fundamental misunderstanding of our reality. This book aims to shift our collective outlook, reshaping our view of human potential and how we treat one another. The book's implications encourage much-needed revisions in science, technology, and medicine. General listeners will find comfort in the implied worldview, which will impact their happiness and everyday decisions related to business, health, and politics. 

Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time meets Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now.

Cherry picked anecdotes.

Cherry picked anecdotes, a few of which are highly dubious, such as the spoon bending of Uri Geller which was - according to the author - proven to be genuine by scientists at Harvard...

Definitely gets you thinking

Materialism has been a mainstay for me since my upbringing in Catholic School where the conflicting narratives tugged at my mind. In 7th grade I abandoned religion for a more esoteric spirituality that allowed me to make sense of what I was learning in science class. By my early 20s I had abandoned faith altogether, cementing myself as a staunch materialist. Psychics and past lives and all this woo woo nonsense was so easy to explain away. Enter Mark Gober...
His book did not change my life. I have not rekindled my relationship with spirituality in any way, nor do I believe for a second anyone can bend spoons (I don't care what Netanyahu says). There are a lot of things that I still find outlandish. BUT for the first time it is written about in an honest way from the standpoint of a fellow skeptic who did the research. The ideas put forth in this book really got me thinking about a lot of the discrepancies I have experienced where I wrote it off as grief or highly traumatic moments affecting my rationalization. It made me think about my friends and family who have experienced anomalies that would fall under pseudoscience in a heartbeat.
The absolute best part about this book is that he preemptively answers every question that will generally arise, going so far as to quote sources claiming to disprove what he's saying that I had researched the day before (which, if you read/listen to the book, you'll see the charming coincidence that is). I can't recommend this book enough. Like I said, it didn't change my mind. But it has opened me up to the possibilities of consciousness being entirely apart from the brain and matter, altogether.
I would have given this book 5's all around, but to be fair I did not enjoy the narration. I stuck it out because the content was too good, however the performance was not my favorite. This is no way should deter you, the potential listener, from this title. I'm listening to it a second time, in fact, so I can take notes this time.

One of the best books I’ve read!

I’m just finishing a molecular biology degree at CU Boulder and was looking for a question to answer to for my graduate studies. This book has pointed me in a direction I am passionate about. Thank you Mr. Mark Gober!

A Mind Opening Listen!!

This book explores the compelling evidence behind human perception and awareness. It will inspire you to rethink your outlook about existence, meaning, and overall worldview. If you enjoy Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, and David Hawkins you'll enjoy this book!!!

Required reading.

The reader lacks some finesse but the material is fantastic and should dwell with the conscientious listener for some time. This understanding may save our planet if enough of us can get it in time. Pass it on.

Prepare to have your world turned upside down

This is a dense, heavy, and powerful evaluation of how consciousness is the basis for all reality. There’s a lot to uncover and unpack, but the implications are world changing. Mark does an amazing job of citing sources on both sides, but the stats and anecdotes he provides to make his case are mind blowing!!

Compelling presentation.

Excellent summary of findings across modern and classical theories of consciousness. Does consciousness erupt from material or exist independently?

Demonstrates shortcomings of materialism and strongly indicates that consciousness is fundamental element of existence.

Excellent read or listen.

very one-sided literature overview

I reproduced one of the experiments - and it reliably dont work. Author didn't bother himself even with such a small thing - he just read and refernced very specific subset of other people.
I became tired of "quote...untiquote".

Your consciousness exists forever!

Materialism, the current paradigm, holds that consciousness evolved from matter without coherent explanation. Mark Gober extensively reviews the evidence that the opposite is true--the Universe and matter originated from and is sustained by Cosmic Consciousness. The brain is like a physical TV that receives and transmits consciousness, the awareness that I AM. Materialism holds that the evolving universe is inherently meaningless and we must create our own meaning. Fundamental Consciousness exists in another dimension. Life in this universe is an individualized expression with its own intensions of that greater consciousness. Life involves suffering and the life's endless drama is to discover how love overcomes or heals separation. I found the evidence reviewed in this revolutionary book to be fascinating, quite persuasive, and meant to create a discussion regarding spiritual principles of life. This book is a must read for a science minded individual and its message may change your life for the better.

Wichtiges Buch mit ungeahnten Implikationen

Lesen, anhören, darüber nachdenken. Dieses Buch schafft es, ernsthafte Zweifel am vorherrschenden wissenschaftlichen Materialismus zu säen. Und ich sage das nicht völlig ohne Kloß im Hals als jemand, der das Regal voll hat mit Büchern von Dennet, Harris, Dawkins, Hawking und Sagan (die sämtlich auch im vorliegenden Audiobook zu Wort kommen).
Wer sich der Wahrheit verschreibt und aufrichtiges Interesse daran hat, sie zu finden, auch wenn sie auf unbekannte Wege führt, wird hier ein Füllhorn von Anregungen und Anknüpfpunkten finden.

Consciousnessism. Good anti-thesis to materialism.

Oh my, where to start. Dorothy never left. the idea that consciousness is at the root of everything is not new, but this book does not explain consciousness. It makes assumptions about her nature, but due to a lack of deeper insight, cannot explain why this word 'consciousness' with all it's vague definitions should be the contextual fabric in which life does it's knowing. Google Microvita Theory by P.R. Sarkar...
