Supported by introductory chapt...

Science of the Sages

I love science and was truly inspired by Robert's use of what we have learned from science to help us see more clearly our reality. Putting non-duality in this context clears many misperceptions.

I especially enjoyed the science connections and found the church impact critical to the story. Galileo was brilliant but brought to his knees by the church leaders. We know these facts in abstract and this was a great illustration.
