Science and the Akashic Field

 

An Integral Theory of Everything, Rochester: Inner Traditions, 2004.Science and the Akashic Field

Science and the Akashic Field by Ervin Laszlo is after the books of Paracelsus, Mesmer, Reichenbach, Reich, Burr, Lakhovsky, Capra, Emoto, Hunt and Sheldrake the most important book I have read on the integration of the energy paradigm—associated with the perennial notion of the ‘ether’— into the heart of modern science.

Deepak Chopra, M.D. wrote about this book:  ‘The most brilliant, comprehensive, and intellectually satisfying integral theory of everything that I have ever read.’

The author introduces the book with the following elucidation that I think is worth to be quoted in its integrality:

Akasha (â · kâ · sha) is a Sanskrit world meaning ‘ether’: all-pervasive space. Originally signifying ‘radiation’ or ‘brilliance’ in Indian philosophy akasha was considered the first and most fundamental of the five elements – the others being vata (air), agni (fire), ap (water), and prithivi (earth). Akasha embraces the properties of all five elements: it is the womb from which everything we perceive with our senses has emerged and into which everything will ultimately re-descend. The Akashic Record (also called The Akashic Chronicle) is the enduring record of all that happens, and has ever happened, in space and time.

The ChakrasCorrelations between Medical Science and Clairvoyant Observation, Shafica Karagulla, with Dora van Gelder Kunz, Wheaton: Quest Books, 1989.

This is an extraordinary book. I do research on the bioenergy since two decades, but I have not encountered so much information about such esoteric a subject in one single book. But I must warn the non-scientific reader: this isn’t a book for enhancing your general knowledge about the aura, and the chakras, and it is by no means a practical book, guidebook, or anything of the kind.

You got two medical practitioners here, one of which is a clairvoyant. The author herself, Shafica Karagulla, is the kind of traditional physician who writes with a lot of ‘faculty terms’, so to speak, using medical terminology all over the place. Further down, I’ll quote some examples. So think twice if you want to buy this book. For me personally, it was indispensable for my research. There are some elucidations in this book that I found earlier in my research, but only after studying tedious manuals and old hermetic writings.  Continue reading
