The Quantum Screen asks, what is the connection between physics and consciousness?
At first glance they appear to be polar opposites. Physics is concrete and verifiable; consciousness is mysterious and subjective. Physics can be demonstrated; consciousness cannot. Both physics and consciousness are real, but there seems to be no connection between them. This produces a duality: two truths, both valid, without any apparent connection. The duality is a division between spirit and matter, between mind and body, between religion and science – the essential neurosis at the core of our civilization. As a society, we have never resolved the difference between what we experience in consciousness and what we think actually exists in the world.
In The Quantum Screen, Avery presents a paradigm-shifting model of perceptual consciousness and of the world – a model he calls the quantum screen.
What is the importance of a model like this? The quantum screen audiobook presents a scientifically rigorous picture of the essential oneness of spirit and world. It is the oneness of all things. Not a mere concept or belief, it is a direct vision available both intellectually and experientially. If this model proves a useful way to understand human experience, it will have a profound effect on how we understand ourselves in relation to nature, and to each other.
