All signs are pointing to a new scientific paradigm coming up over the horizon. The world of materialism ⎯ the notion that the entire physical world from spiral galaxies to the spiral staircase of the DNA molecule ⎯ can be explained as a random collection of mindless particles, is coming to an end. In its place a new worldview is rising, powered not by a big bang of mindless energy but by an explosion of creativity from One Mind, the energy of the spirit that some call God. Here, science will find its Theory of Everything and religion its promised land, when each adds one more power to the forces of nature: the dreaming power of the human mind.
In The Collapse of Materialism, Visions of Science, Dreams of God, lawyer and visionary futurist, Philip Comella, urges the reader to open their mind for a short while and consider the world not as a machine, but as a great dream of God, one where we are at the center of creation rising to understand ⎯ and appreciate ⎯ the reality of the dream. Comella shows how all worldly phenomena, including the objects of scientific study and religious worship, can be explained through the dream lens. Citing authorities across all fields of thought, the paranormal, philosophy, science, and religion, Comella makes an overwhelming case that the dream vision better explains the world than science’s outdated mechanical model. It is time to put the old model to rest, re-adjust the world’s navigation system, and head our planet away from separateness and discord toward the place where science fulfills its vision of explaining the world, and God fulfills its dream of a world united.
