Quantum Shift in the Global Brain by Ervin Laszlo
In his latest book, Quantum Shift in the Global
Ervin Laszlo embraces a new view of physical reality, one that
will enable us to deal with the problems our society has developed. His
approach is summed up in two chapters, "Macro Shift in Society," and "Paradigm
Shift in Science." In the first chapter, Laszlo examines the
roots of our non-sustainable society and concludes that change is
required for survival. If these changes occur, they will
take the form of "macro shifts," where society develops
to its maximum allowable level, then stagnates and stops growing. In
the next phase, mounting pressure develops and new ideas begin to emerge
that can solve its problems. At a certain point, there is forward
leap into a new reality.
Laszlo proposes two theories that could initiate a macro shift:
This book is a leading entry in the field of new science. It is wide in scale and broad in ideas, but it lacks details as to how to accomplish what it sees as necessary. My book, The Theory of the Prime Field, is a detailed account of the physics that underlies the new scientific paradigm of coherence. It is hoped that other theories will be developed in this new and essential field.
