Science, Being, & Becoming reminds us that some scientists, perhaps many, have had the same kinds of profound psychic, mystical, and spiritual experiences that people have reported throughout history… Books like this are dissolving old constraints, and in the process whole new realms of reality are poised to emerge. A delightful and inspiring book. — Dean Radin Ph.D., Institute of Noetic Sciences, and author, Real Magic
The Final Frontier for Science
Contrary to popular belief, not all scientists are materialists fervently discounting the spiritual. Science, Being, & Becoming shares interviews with some of the world’s foremost scientists who recount their own transpersonal, metaphysical, and mystical experiences and how those experiences transformed them and their scientific work.
This groundbreaking book makes it evident that the long-standing divide between science and spirituality has not served us well and in fact continues to have significant adverse consequences for us all. Fortunately, many scientists no longer recognize that divide and are helping science to now fulfill its intended promise to discover and understand all of life, including our deep spiritual nature. The stories in this book help us understand that the spiritual is the final frontier for science.
The book also contains special bonus Spotlight sections written by Drs. Eben Alexander, Robert Atkinson, Dusana Dorjee, and Kyriacos C. Markides.
Professor Mills is a shining example of a rigorous scientist and classic mystic, whose mind and heart are dedicated to the pursuit of both objective knowledge and subjective wisdom. This book tells the stories of scientists and scholars who walk the line between science and spirit, weaving them together into a beautiful tapestry that should validate the personal experiences of many more. — Cassandra Vieten, Ph.D., Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination, University of California, San Diego
In this much needed work, Professor Paul Mills provides an intimate and personal view into the spiritual lives of scientists. In the midst of these rapidly changing times, their stories of inspiration, dedication, and struggle can encourage and steady each of us along the path. — Thomas Liu, Ph.D., Center for Functional MRI, University of California, San Diego
