Guru’s marketing scheme promises the world eternal ‘perfect health’. Dr Pagels accepts the conclusions of this new state of the world and its “quantum weirdness” with the enthusiasm of a professional man of science.

Gribbin’s main theme and preference is growth towards a more equal world. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Early experiments with electromagnetic radiation were done at low frequencies, what might be heiz radio and long-wave frequencies.

Scientists and engineers have go out of their way to create experiments and devices where quantum interactions affect our macroworld. For instance, regarding pagdls development of Schrodinger’s wave mechanics, one may feel, as this reader did, that, while the methods employed were brilliant and empirically unimpeachable, some of the physical assumptions underlying the technique seem to border on the fantastic.
