My problem with this and Dr Lanza's other book on the importance of consciousness, is that he doesn't extend his argument beyond constant repetition of the Double Slit Experiment and the self-evident observation of human perception. Both are very exciting things to note, but I don't think the book has shown enough reason why this should make us believe that the universe beyond our senses is solely of our own making. I suggest that it is very likely true that the shape, colour and form of the world around us is determined by the mechanics of our perceptions and neural pathways. Reality is very much, a subjective and inner experience. But I think the world remains, whether or not we are here to perceive it. What form it takes is debatable, but to imagine that it disappears or that its existence in whatever form depends on our continued observation seems to me a little egocentric. I think the ideas are good, but what we need to know is how can we use these tenets to form a broader and more valid understanding of life such that we can live our lives better. I think Dr Lanza wants to tell us that but I don't think his book as it stands now, is able to do so.
