Science does not need mysticism and mysticism does not need science; but man needs them both. These are the words of Fritjof Capra, a theoretical physicist, systems theorist, writer, and lecturer. In this program, Capra uses non-technical language, with no complex mathematics of formulae, to explore the main concepts and theories of modern physics, the revelations coming from particle accelerators and laboratories - and compares them with the ancient tenets of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism. In the process, the listener gains a clear and fascinating picture of how such seemingly disparate areas of thought are ultimately quests for the same kind of understanding.

    " One of the best books I've ever read. Gives a fundamental understanding of both physics and eastern mysticism. Captivating and fascinating, although technical and frustrating at times. It is physics, after all.. A great introductory book before reading something like The Holographic Universe. Personally, I found this book very fulfilling, both spiritually and intellectually. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in either topic. "

    " So far, I've gotten a quick refresher course in the development of modern physics, something I quickly forgot after college even though we speant 2 years learning about it. It's also a fascinating overview of the different Eastern philosophies that I've always found so interesting. Im now at the part where the author draws parallels between modern physics and the Eastern view of universal connectedness. It's relatively easy to read and fun stuff. "

    " A highly readable synopsis of the principle eastern theologies, classic and quantum physics, and what links them. Not deep, but very satisfying for the layman and the hypothesis should intrigue anyone. "
