Product Description


". . . explores how intuition and speculation are now being given scientific rigor and urgency as a multidimensional worldview emerges." (The Compendium Newsletter, Vol. 38, No. 2, Mar/Apr 2010)

“Ervin Laszlo provides the most brilliant, comprehensive, and intellectually satisfying integral theory of everything that I have ever read. . . . His work transcends the vision of Darwin, Newton, Einstein, the quantum pioneers, and many other scientific giants of history.” (Deepak Chopra, M.D., author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success)

“Arguably the world’s greatest system theorist and interdisciplinary scientist and philosopher, Ervin Laszlo is a multifaceted individual with a range of interests and talents reminiscent of the great figures of the Renaissance. In an intellectual tour de force and a series of books, Laszlo offers a solution to the current paradoxes in Western science that transcends the boundaries of individual disciplines.” (Stanislav Grof, author of Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science and When the Impossible Happens)

"Ervin Laszlo has provided thought provoking information to guide us through this period of transition." (Kathryn Price, book editor, WomensRadio)

"Our world is undergoing a radical 'macroshift' at the same time as our scientific understanding of reality is revving up for a major paradigm shift. . . . This is truly inspiring stuff!" (Nexus New Times Magazine)

"This is a book I recommend for those who are interested quantum physics and the meditative state as it is written in a style I was able to understand, considering my strengths are not in science and mathematics." (Barbara Martin, reviewer, Jan 2009)

"It is an exciting time to be alive now, during the evolution of the next step of human consciousness, and reading this book created a safe perspective for me 'to be' in the scheme of things." (Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide magazine, Issue No. 25, May/June 08)

"From a scientifcally idealistic point of view, there is something that seems right about this book's advice. . . . From the shifting of political, corporate, and military resources to the planetary ethic, to the latest scientific knowledge, this is a book you wish everyone read." (Cheznoiu and Kovacs, United Association for Body Psychotherapy, Sep 2008)

"Whenever I read a book written by a Nobel prize nominee, (peace, in this case, twice) I expect an interesting read. Quantum Shift in the Global Brain did not disappoint, but for rather a surprising reason: the book is a strange juxtaposition of societal and global trends, quantum and chaos physics, and pseudoscience, with wide breadth and bold claims. So, it kept me on my toes." (Donald N. Petcher, Journal of the American Scientific Affiliation, Vol. 61, No. 1, March 2009)

"Any college-level collection strong in either science or sociology will find this intriguing." (The Midwest Book Review, June 2008)

"Laszlo makes a compelling case; his analysis of human populations and resource use provides a good historical basis to his theory that an industrialized way of life is unsustainable. Not merely content to describe the impending apocalypse, he lays out strategies and solutions to help support our survival." (Witches & Pagans, Feb 2010)

"The overall message of the book, however unlikely this seems at present, is that humanity is a system capable of rapid transformation. We will soon enough discover whether this is true." (David Lorimer, The Scientific and Medical Network, March 2010)

I bought several books at the same time by this author and as well did an on-line course with him. I haven't had the chance as yet to read this book but I know I'll love it as I have the others books he has written. They are very readable highly informative and extremely interesting if you are into discovering more about cutting edge science and the quantum level of reality.

HASH(0xa3aad750) out of 5 stars An Absolutely Necessary Read April 9 2008
By Peter Nixon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a university student studying topics of sustainability, development, and economics with interests in science and spirituality, this book completely surpassed my expectations. Laszlo--a renowned systems theorist-- synthesizes current research and ideas from all these arenas with his own theories to produce a masterpiece of a work. The book addresses the past, present and future of humanity in a comprehensive and creative way. Laszlo's ideas seem to grow more and more relevant each day as we search for solutions to our growing list of global problems. I recommend this not only to those looking for the newest ideas on world development and what the new scientific paradigm has to offer, but anyone participating in the modern world.

HASH(0xa3aad720) out of 5 stars Brain waves take on new meaning Sept. 1 2008
By Jane Fried - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Lazlo's writing always leaves me asking for more. He is clear but not simple. He shows connections in places where few others see them. He makes quantum science moderately comprehensible to the lay reader without simplifying things to the point that they become ideology.Lazlo describes a view of reality that makes sense to the modern person with a scientific world view and also restores an idea about the mystery and awe of the universe by moving beyond the conflict between the two. He's also written Science and the Reenchantment of the Cosmos. If you think the planet is going to Hell in a handbasket- here's another handbasket.

HASH(0xa3b5cba0) out of 5 stars Our world is in Macroshift and modern reality is challenging us to adjust June 8 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Our world is in Macroshift and modern reality is challenging us to adjust to new, rapid changes. QUANTUM SHIFT IN THE GLOBAL BRAIN discusses these changes, presenting a different kind of guidance to the changes science and discovery are introducing to individuals and society alike. Science shifts are here related to worldview and values shifts, with chapters discussing the maximum code, manifest reality and more. Any college-level collection strong in either science or sociology will find this intriguing.

This book is tremendously inspiring in terms of whether or not humans will survive this 6th extinction event. The physics and biology of what is happening and what is possible is very positive.

HASH(0xa49690b4) out of 5 stars Relevant and Thought-Provoking July 28 2009
By rowley32256 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Quantum Shift in the Global Brain is another effort from the author of Science and the Akashic Field, one of many ideas about what David Bohm referred to as the implicate order of the universe. Ervin Laszlo's version of what some call The Matrix or the Zero Point Field is the Akashic Field. In Quantum Shift in the Global Brain Laszlo brings together multiple ideas from globalization to climate change and sets them in the context of his version of entanglement. (page 85) "Scientists now know ... that particles are entangled - nonlocally connected - with each other throughout space: they have a prior unity that is active and manifest. Living things of all kinds are nonlocally connected throughout the biosphere; theirs is a subtle connection that is likewise active and real, although we have only recently discovered it."

More accessible than Science and the Akashic Field, this book is highly thought-provoking; it brings together scientific and religious knowledge towards an idea that Laszlo dubbs (page 125) "a Holos-civilization" - "a civilization based on empathy, trust and solidarity".

At a time when atheists and theists seem increasingly to be talking past one another, Laszlo sets out some very constructive ideas for integration around the vested interest that we all have in preserving and better understanding the holistic environment that we inhabit. It is encouraging that intellectuals such as Laszlo are continuing the Bohm tradition of looking for harmony where others see conflict. A very good read.
