If America is to continue as a powerful, positive influence in the world, Americans must be strong and balanced in body and mind. Yet an overwhelming number of Americans suffer from poor health. The health care crisis is far more fundamental than delivery of existing health care; it is a problem of the very world view upon which modern medicine is based. To be truly effective, medicine must take advantage of the more comprehensive, up-to-date, and holistic understanding of nature provided by twentieth-century science. It is time for a new medical paradigm based on the unified field.
This new medical paradigm, which is brilliantly described by Dr. Robert Keith Wallace in this book, has historical roots in the most ancient tradition of knowledge in the world - the Vedic tradition of India. Maharishi Mehesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation, has worked with modern scientists and scholars of the Vedic tradition to bring to light a wealth of knowledge and practical technologies based on the most profound and comprehensive understanding of natural law.
The Physiology of Consciousness is about the rediscovery of this knowledge and Dr. Wallace's contribution to it's powerful and timely resurgence. He lucidly presents a world view based on Maharishi's Vedic Science which integrates the concepts of mind and body, consciousness and matter, and extends our concept of health beyond the individual to include the collective health of society.
