The Dutch artist and researcher Iebele Abel uses technology and present-day science to reiterate these questions. Within different disciplines of science, technology, and philosophy, these questions are addressed on a fundamental level. Now evidence is growing that consciousness and the bodily manifestation of life itself are entangled; this may be the starting point for new observations, from which radical new technologies and forthcoming cultures may derive.
In MANIFESTATIONS OF MIND IN MATTER, Iebele Abel meets prominent scientists and pioneers in the practice of consciousness research. He does not avoid complex questions. He explores the boundaries of artistic, spiritual, and scientific thinking in open-hearted and personal conversations.
This full-color book, containing both conversations and images of the art of Iebele Abel, is interesting for anyone who refuses to take things for granted, but who is fascinated by the mysterious entanglement of mind and matter.
In 1970, Ram Dass' Be Here Now became the counter-culture bible for thousands of young people seeking enlightenment in the midst of the darkness of Vietnam. It was a pioneering bridge, written in colloquial language, from the psychedelic 60s to eastern spirituality, and over the years has sold and continues to sell more than two million copies.
Now in an e-book edition, Ram Dass' message is brought to life for a new generation of seekers. This will be a beautiful digital edition of this classic and enlightening book.
