Infinite Reach: Spirituality in a Scientific World connects and integrates the great spiritual insights with science and mathematics for the increasing numbers of Americans who consider themselves spiritual but not religious, or spiritual and religious, or “none of the above,” and who no longer find traditional religious doctrines and institutions credible or matching their experience. In nontechnical language it precisely and clearly traces how current brain-mind research informs and enhances inner spiritual and religious experience, and how scientific cosmology confirms spiritual intuitions.
From hunting-gathering prehistory, through city-states, empires, and the great religions, scientific methods advance exponentially faster into the future, while the great spiritual insights have never been surpassed, though often ignored or denied. But scientific knowing and spiritual knowing share infinite reach. Brain-mind research contributes to understanding and living meditation and spiritual practices in silence, ritual, and vision. Modern physics and mathematics demonstrate how humans observe and participate in the actual evolution of the universe. Fractals in chaos theory are spiritual images of ultimate reality. In creating, loving, and undifferentiated presence we find our own unique voice in the mystery of ultimate reality, touching down here and now in the specifics of this present moment.
