It has been said that we are where our attention is. We are aware of being hot or cold, hungry or thirsty, sleepy or wide awake, tired or rested, sad or happy, and so on… We are the sum total of our emotions tempered by the input from our senses. What happens when our sensory input is cut off? Well, at night we dream. But what if the input from our senses is cut off wholly, utterly, perhaps irretrievably, for a days, weeks at a time? What if our body is in a coma? This is what this book explores.
Some editorial Reviews
“This is a story of how a mind can be set free to roam infinite space where time does not exist, while its body lies in a coma, and what it can discover about itself, its being and its becoming. As usual, this reader was awed by the author’s cosmic range of thought, global vocabulary, the boldness of his ideas, the potpourri of philosophical sources, and his charming self-revelatory candor. The marvel is that, theoretically, such peregrinations of mind are quite plausible. I have experienced them myself. They are quite within the realm of the laws of physics.
It’s intriguing to contemplate Law’s interpretations of scripture, ancient poetry and musings, and modern cosmology. An extraordinary puzzle audaciously put together! How he can sustain what is basically a stream of consciousness for 300 spellbinding pages reminds of Mozart’s tour de forces of weaving together four or more counterpoints.” (Kate Jones, Pasadena, USA.)
“It is fascinating to watch a man to—literally—give up the world for the love of a woman. Fascinating!” (Joanne Brown, Montreal, PQ.)
What starts with a car crash resulting in a coma that immobilizes our hero, grows into a trek through time and outer space. Tragedy turns into romance, misery into humour, all held with the icy fingers of the edge-of-your-seat suspense. Fascinating story, and a very interesting read. (Bo Happach, publisher, Canada)
“Never has our subconscious been explored in such depths and discernment. It seems that our conscious mind is but a tip of a twelve-billion-year-old iceberg.” (Jim Mc Laughlin, Calgary, Alta.)
