In this thought-provoking book, author Michael Yang tackles some of life's fundamental questions that have given philosophers pause for centuries. The book will transform your understanding of reality in multiple aspects:
- Human mind activities can be explained through two parallel tendencies, namely, the actualization of potential and the search of reunification. This explains a large portion of the roots of religion and the similarity and difference of different cultures;
- The dynamics of these two forces results in outcomes that comprises a meta-reality - unaware but objective. The meta-reality concept is essential an extension of Popper’s concept of the 3rd World;
- There is methodology analogy between how human mind interacts with meta-reality to how Quantum physics uses a wave function to describe reality. The implication here is that the reconciliation between science and religion hence lies NOT in the contents, but in the methodology analogy;
- Through these principles of the mind, a framework is provided that every normal life will find the meaning, whether being aware or unaware. The meaning of life is realized through adhering to the principles of the mind and echoing the deep-most truth in the nature and the Universe. There are many different cultures and religions attempting to reveal the meaning of life, but ultimately they all point to the similar answer as described in this book.
Be ready to challenge yourself and join the journey of searching with this fascinating book. You will walk away with a new level of understanding of your mind and a deeper appreciation of human life.
