Book Review of "A Brief Tour of Higher Consciousness" by Itzhak Bentov
Review by Michael Laughrin, Michael@jyotish.ws
A Brief Tour of Higher Consciousness by Itzhak Bentov is the best (and most fun) introduction to the modern idea of Enlightenment combined with quantum physics that I have ever come across. And I have been swimming in these "Enlightenment" waters for over 35 years now.
This is the same Itzhak Bentov who, on his last plane ride, as he was boarding the plane, realized that no one on the plane had an aura and he knew that they were all destined to crash. He got on the plane anyway because he knew it was time to move on to greater things. Please just treat this as a rumor.
This little book of 113 pages is light, fun, profound, and mathematical. The author relates the ultimate meaning of the Universe with both the Hebrew and Sanskrit alphabets. Every single one of you should own this book, or, at least, read it. I especially like the chapter about the Devas because it so closely parallels my own experience.
The subtitle of this tome is also revealing: "A Cosmic Book on the Mechanics of Creation." Wonderful!
