“In his new book, Ervin Laszlo, the world’s foremost systems theorist, summarizes his evolutionary connectivity hypothesis and his concept of the Akashic field. He offers a brilliant solution for the paradoxes and anomalous phenomena that emerged in the course of the twentieth century in a broad variety of fields--from astrophysics, quantum-relativistic physics, and chemistry to biology, anthropology, thanatology, parapsychology, and psychology. In this tour de force, Laszlo’s renaissance intellect spanning a broad range of scientific disciplines offers the reader a breathtaking vision of a self-actualizing cosmos. A book that should not be missing in the library of any scientist seeking to understand the nature of reality.” (Stanislav Grof, M.D., author of Holotropic Breathwork, Psychology of the Future, and When the Imposs)

“Forty years ago Ervin Laszlo changed the way we saw the world with his classic book The Systems View of the World. Today he changes the way we understand the cosmos and our own place in it. This is a groundbreaking and very readable work.” (Allan Combs, Ph.D., author of Consciousness Explained Better, Synchronicity, and Radiance of Being a)

“The Akasha paradigm, explained in Laszlo’s book, marks a new stage in science and society’s understanding of the world and a way forward to peace and sustainability.” (Ruth Parnell, Nexus, June 2014)

“...the concepts and ideas presented in The Self-Actualizing Cosmos are essential reading for anyone seriously concerned with the well-being of the human race and life as we know it on Earth. Highly recommended and thought-provoking!” (Cynthia Sue Larson, New Conciousness Review, June 2014)

“Let this masterful mega-synthesis of frontier science blow the lid off any thinking that keeps you from beholding a cosmos designed to self-actualize. This is the pinnacle of Laszlo’s work and defines him as the most important cosmologist alive today.” (James O’Dea, author of Cultivating Peace: Becoming a 21st-Century Peace Ambassador)

“The modern idea of a mindless, purposeless, directionless universe will take its place as a morbid relic in the history of ideas. It is being replaced by the vision expressed in The Self-Actualizing Cosmos. This important book restores hope and meaning and shows that the cosmos is a friendlier home than we have recently taken it to be.” (Larry Dossey, M.D., author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness a)

Laszlo revisits his Akashic field concept 21. Juli 2014
Von Dr. H. A. Jones - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The Self-Actualizing Cosmos: The Akasha revolution in science and human consciousness, by Ervin Laszlo; Inner Traditions, Rochester, Vermont, 2014, 208 ff

Scientists, philosophers and religious adherents alike have long embraced the concept of a unifying non-material energy field, a so-called ‘deep dimension’ to reality – except that scientists have found a rational interpretation for this concept only within the last century while theists have been inspired by such a notion for millennia. Several scientists and philosophers have described this energy in their own individual terms – Bucke by ‘cosmic consciousness’, Jung by ‘collective unconscious’, Sheldrake by ‘morphic field’ and, in philosophy, by Plato with his ‘Forms’ and ‘Ideas’ and Kant’s vision of a world of the ‘phenomenal’ and the ‘noumenal’; it is David Bohm’s ‘implicate order’. ‘The world we observe is illusory, ephemeral, and short-lived, while the deep dimension is real, eternal and eternally unchanging’.

I believe Laszlo first introduced his own term, ‘akashic field’, to general readers in his book ‘Science and the Akashic Field’ of a decade ago, though his thoughts had been moving in that direction for at least another decade before that. ‘Akasha’ is a Sanskrit term meaning ‘aether’ or ‘space’ and the concept formed part of ancient Hindu philosophy found in the Upanishads. It is the foundation of the created universe. The akashic record is regarded as the spiritual domain in which all the events of the universe are written through all time. The idea is beautifully summarized on p.2: the akasha is the underlying foundation of the cosmos that creates the conditions for the emergence of life and consciousness; it is complementary to prana – the activating energy.

The author states that the more enlightened scientists (especially quantum physicists and biologists) have come to realize that a new paradigm is needed to explain the phenomena of the world at the molecular and organismal level – matter, life and consciousness are all entangled and constantly interactive. Nonlocality or ‘action-at-a-distance’ (two objects influencing one another without any obvious connection between them) is something we are all familiar with in the case of gravity or magnets. But, as Laszlo says, it applies much more widely than that. In the case of consciousness we find it in telepathy and shared death experiences. Furthermore, nonlocality applies across time as well as across space. This cosmic energy field, or akashic field as Laszlo calls it, is like a giant fine web that envelops the whole universe: touch one part, and it all responds – and goes on responding in the holofield through space-time. Matter and minds together form a holistic interactive system; ‘there is no separation between components and their interaction’. Every individual creature is itself an example of coherence within its being.

The second part of this book recounts discussions between Laszlo and other proponents of similar ideas, and then spiritually oriented scientists present their take on the akashic field concept in short articles. This book provides a much deeper explanation at a more sophisticated scientific level than Laszlo’s previous book on the akashic field, which could easily be read by non-scientists. I think they would have rather more difficulty understanding the arguments here. In summary, the evolution of this akashic field concept (or whatever other term is used to describe the cosmic spiritual field of the universe) leads to ‘a self-actualizing, self-organizing whole, where each part is in coherence with all others’. As usual, there is a list of References and further reading (somewhat shorter than before) and a useful Index.

The book is excellent and much easier to read and understand that Laszlo's SCIENCE AND THE ASASHIC FIELD. I read and reread many of Laszlo's books, THE SELF-ACTUALIZING COSMOS is the most recent, the most clearly written and includes essays on health, perception, freedom and the "good." This book is one in a long line of recent works by various writers on the new understandings of ourselves in our world, our place in it, and on what David Bohm would call the implicate order which Laszlo reterms the akasha linking it to field theory thus the akashic field. I would heartily recommend this to anyone who wants to expand their horizons.

Review. 11. September 2014
Von Rich - Veröffentlicht auf

I have read something like twenty to twenty-five books on quantum mechanics over the last four years (mathematical and non-mathematical). Finally, someone with the courage to make a commitment to a rational and somewhat detailed interpretation and model linking quantum nonlocality with consciousness (and many other unexplained phenomenon in nature); that is why I gave this book five stars. The key is a "field". The majority of traditional deterministic scientist will not stretch their credibility to this extent. Whether you call it the Akasha Field, Quantum Foam, or the Zero Point Energy Field, something is connecting everything with everything else in the universe and Laszlo has possibly nailed it. This "field" is in addition to the already well-known gravitational, electromagnetc field, and the strong and weak forces. It instantly connects all entangled quanta across space and time with impacts ranging from the sub-atomic to macroscopic scales. Experiment after experiment by reputable scientist from around the globe over decades have demonstrated the validity of quantum nonlocality-most scientists have chosen to dodge the evidence. This is changing as more recent books on quantum mechanics have become available discussing similar ideas-some written by mainstream scientist. What Laszlo proposes may not be the final answer, but he makes a lot of sense.

If the Akasha Field is close to being the correct concept, there is a whole new mind-blowing paradigm emerging (we are already experiencing it) and waiting for us in the future. Laszlo has explained this new paradigm very clearly and presented evidence for his assertions, although more evidence is needed. It will take time for his ideas (and others who have proposed similar concepts) to absorb what this new reality implies. It is certainly thought provoking. I only wish there was a way to validate or "detect" this field; this would make it easier for the general public to accept. The book is really interesting and worth the read.

Lazio has presented his case with great lucidity. He has presented a model of the way the cosmos functions that manages not to exclude any of the known data from science or the workings of human consciousness. No longer is it necessary to see science and religion as not contradictory, yet also not compatible. Lazlo has achieved that integration.

An important step in the right direction, finally 24. März 2014
Von Rex Green - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Laszlo presents a most readable synthesis of science and religion updating what quantum physicists are discovering that is so unexplainable with Newton's and Einstein's theories. Despite his lofty accomplishments, Laszlo modestly suggests that this synthesis is just another step along the road to fuller understanding of the universe we populate, a better story or theory than the others. Indeed, there is still more evidence accumulating that challenges his synthesis, perhaps motivating him to give us an update in a couple of years. In the meantime, everyone who is literate can access his explanation, revise their beliefs, and hopefully accept their deep-seated connections to each other.
