Stalking the Wild Pendulum: On the Mechanics of Consciousness

Itzhak Bentov was born in Czechoslovakia and moved to America, he became an inventor and specialized in the creation of new medical instrumentation. He died shortly after writing this book in a flying accident.

None of which prepares the reader for the model of the universe which Bentov proposes. This is a fascinating book and will be of interest to all who study psychic matters and are interesting in a “model” of reality which reflects their own experiences. 

Bentov says: “I am attempting in this book to build a model of the universe that will satisfy the need for a comprehensive picture of ‘what our existence is all about.’

In other words, a holistic model that encompasses not only the physical, observable universe that is our immediate environment and the distant universe observed by our astronomers but also other ‘realities’ as well.”

Books - Ideas and Thought

Some books are pioneering works by visionaries who offer us a glimpse into the changing world that we live in, or a different perspective, and help us see how we can reconcile our impact on the environment, commerce and spirituality.The list below is my absolute favourite- a must read! You can also listen to Podcasts interviews that I have conducted with many of the authors whose books are featured here. And please feel free to share them with friends and family too.

Thought as a System , by David Bohm, pub. Routledge, London 1992.
Bohm outlined the various problems that he saw as being present in the world and asked “What is the source of all this trouble?”  His answer was that – “I’m saying that the source [of the various problems] is basically in thought.” Bohm noted the distinction between “thinking” and “thought” – thinking implies the present tense, and thought is the past participle.

Thom Hartmann is well known in the US as a liberal commentator.  This book is about the declining availability of non-renewable energy and the impact that this will soon have on our world. The term “ancient sunlight” in the title of this book refers to the solar energy that was originally captured by plants and then stored in the form of hydro-carbons (oil, gas and coal) for hundreds of millions of years. Hartmann also produces the figures on the foreseeable impact of global warming and the rapid destruction of habitat, including the rain forests. Amazon UK, Amazon USA
