What is Reality, and why does it matter? After all, turkeys, trees, and some American presidents have lived out their lives without ever asking these questions. So begins Buddha Science, an exploration into the amazing similarities between groundbreaking Western science and the profound wisdom of ancient Eastern thought. But this is no scientific treatise or gee whiz new age fantasy; it is a logical and lighthearted look at some of the themes that cut across vastly divergent approaches to understanding the mysteries of life, consciousness, and the universe.
Invoking an ancient story in which three blind men describe an elephant based solely upon the unique parts they encounter, Buddha Science encourages readers to question their perception of reality. We all understand a piece of reality, but none of us sees the whole thing. Like the blind men, only by opening our minds to all points of view can we hope to gain greater understanding.
Author, Steve Daut, takes a step-by-step approach to discussion on various scientific disciplines and the startling parallels between modern scientific discovery and the principles outlined by the Buddha over twenty six centuries ago. Packed with over 220 notes and references, with examples both entertaining and insightful, Buddha Science is both extensively researched and highly readable. A thought-provoking must read for anyone who has wondered about the deeper mysteries of life.
