Author Philippa Rees Releases ‘Involution – An Odyssey’, An Epic Work That Redefines Reality And Reconciles God And Science – http://ow.ly/Hel0U
Before Wilber, Laszlo, Tolle and Sheldrake, there was ‘Involution’. Rees’ epic work reunites mind with matter, intellect with consciousness and man with God. It ultimately redefines reality.
[Somerset UK, January 13, 2015] Author Philippa Rees has announced the US release of ‘Involution – An Odyssey’. In the traditions of Homer, Dante, and Milton, author Philippa Rees has created a modern-day masterpiece; a work that covers the entire spectrum of consciousness and experience. It is a work that ultimately reconciles God and science.
To communicate her message, she developed a form of ‘symphonic prose’ that bypasses the brain, speaks directly to the heart and creates an experience – one that is beyond a mere reading experience. One cannot understand a symphony by reading the sheet music. One cannot understand the taste of cake by reading a recipe. Direct experience conveys direct knowledge that lies beyond mere words.
In this sense, ‘Involution’ is an entirely unique work, as it utilizes ‘symphonic prose’ to express the ‘symphony of consciousness’ which is Creation. Each instrument (organism) has its timbre and range, and all interweave and develop the melodic themes, but the whole symphony cannot be described. It must be read and ‘heard’ (as music is), emotionally.
The Theory of Involution was first conceived in 1970, eighteen years before Rupert Sheldrake’s ‘The Presence of the Past’, seven years before Ken Wilber’s ‘The Spectrum of Consciousness’, 34 years before Laszlo wrote ‘Science and the Akashic Field’ and 29 years before Ekhart Tolle published ‘The Power of Now’. It anticipated parts of all of these scientific or practical philosophies. It was supported by Arthur Koestler whose conception of ‘holons’ (something simultaneously a whole and a part of something larger) is built into the concept of encoding memory, which connects each organism to the total memory or Akashic field, but which affords each organism an independent integrity and the means of participation in the One, the Whole.
WHY? WHO FOR?
“I wrote this book,” Rees stated, ” to counter the prevailing appeal to the rational intellect alone. Instead it addresses the intuitive right brain and the heart. As Einstein said ‘You cannot remedy a problem with the same thinking that created it’. Science has relied on the authority of the left brain intellect which incrementally created the division between mind and matter ( separating Man from God: the unified field of consciousness) Only the wisdom of the heart will reunite what the intellect has divided. This Odyssey is to offer a reminder of what the heart already knows, and how science chose to forget.”
Reviewers have lavished praise on ‘Involution’:
‘A Daring Dantean feat…’ Alan Morrison. Editor The Recusant
‘…A Rarity… A controversial hair-and-eye-brow-raising subject…totally insightful. Getting close to science as well as to God at the same time, that’s no mean feat’. Ervin Laszlo
‘The author’s grasp of the principal elements of Western culture is masterly and her poetic narrative woven together with extraordinary subtlety’. David Lorimer, Director Scientific and Medical Network
‘…reflecting the act of genius’. Philip Franses, Editor, Holistic Science Journal.
‘ a marvelous, wise, unique work written with great flair and originality’ Andrew Harvey
There are very good reasons for re-examining how science managed to separate mind from matter and man from God. By steady new examination of the deepening fissure between intellect and consciousness, ‘Involution’ re-unites what science has sundered, the interior man and his union with creation, the co-creation of the divine. ‘Involution’ is a journey of the mystical science behind science.
Author Philippa Rees has designed and built her own home, an arts centre and concert hall and has managed to master enough of the cello to play string quartets with her daughters, one a professional violinist. In the 80’s she lectured at Bristol University on genius, the science behind Involution, which now has been nominated ‘Runner-up Book of the Year (2013) by the Scientific and Medical Network. Her short stories have won awards at Narrative Magazine where one was recently awarded one of the top five stories of the year, and recorded talks and articles have been commissioned on Involution ‘The Book that Wrote the Life’. She lives in her DIY built barns in Somerset, UK.
