Mor Laszlo fluidly creates an integral theory of everything, pulling reference from modern quantum physics and studies of consciousness; he effectively blasts us into the myriad of possibilities and likely realities that his theory creates. In other projects Wikiquote. But to me this seems to be saying that laslzo must believe that that these varying descriptions are all really, deep down, interconnected — something I think no scientist would seriously doubt. That it is all recorded and available because it is recorded not only at the level of our conscious development, but at the cellular level, at the organic levels and at higher levels of consciousness more subtle than our own. Actually, Richard Maurice Bucke was a psychiatrist working here in London Ontario in the late 19th century.

Our human body is made up of many such levels, each formed by another jump in complexity. Our lowest level of the cell jumps up a level to body tissue, to body organ, to body system and to the whole body. We are therefore formed with many onion skin like levels that all cooperate in complex ways to make one whole human being. It is really amazing how it all fits together. At the same time, in the human realm of consciousness, we are - as far as we know - the only creatures able to contemplate who we are, why we are here and how we fit into the universe.
This coherence also allows evolution to happen and that has enabled us to evolve from a microscopic bacterium right through to the complex beings that we are with all our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual capabilities.
Everything in the universe therefore has consciousness; from a pebble to a tree, to a cloud, to a person. While this goes against the view of mainstream science, there are some highly respected scientists such as Freeman Dyson, David Bohm and Fritjof Capra, who support the idea that the universe is in fact conscious. Ervin Laszlo says that life happens because it comes from the quantum vacuum. What is consciousness? Consciousness is about being aware of our own existence and the environment in which we live.
So if one sub-atomic particle reacts in line with another particle somewhere else in the universe, we could say it is aware of what the other one is doing. In a way it is aware of itself in the universe.
So, the question is: Is it enough to say all particles in the universe are conscious? We are conscious of our existence and have evolved a brain able to access and use the consciousness held in quantum vacuum. Consciousness is yet another manifestation of coherence allowing a mass of nerve cells to co-operate and form a unified sense of self.
Ervin Laszlo equates this quantum vacuum with the Akashic Field of ancient Hindu spiritual tradition. The Hindu say the Akashic record is a field from which all the universe is formed and which holds all that ever was, is or will be. Those numbers are transferred from previous universes. The Akashic Field, being the background to the subatomic worlds, also flows through the other realms of stars, galaxies and human life, and is an activating force in all those realms.
It clearly points to a universe where all is one and everything is linked. Science and spirituality do not need to be set against each other as we have tended to think for so long. It explains what is usually called the supernatural in natural terms, giving strong evidence for the truth of such things as clairvoyance, reincarnation and spiritual healing. The software is information. The universe is not an assemblage of bits of inert matter moving passively in empty space, it is a dynamic and coherent whole.
The energy that constitutes its hardware is always and everywhere in-formed. It is in-formed by what David Bohm called the implicate order and what physicists now regard as the quantum vacuum or zero-point field also called physical spacetime, universal field, or nuether. This is the in-formation that structures the physical world, the information we grasp as the laws of nature. Without information the energy waves and patterns of the universe would be as random and unstructured as the behavior of a computer without its software.
But the universe is not random and unstructured; it is precisely in-formed. Would it be any less precisely informed, complex systems could not have emerged in it, and we would not be here to ask how this on first sight highly improbable development could have come about. In recognition of this feat of insight, he is calling the information field of the universe the Akashic Field.
It is either a spirit or consciousness that infuses the natural world the immanentist view , or a spirit or consciousness that is above and beyond it the transcendentalist claim. The raw data for both positions is the same: it is the spiritual experience, a quantum communion with universal oneness.
In the Western religious perspective this is communion with the spirit that infuses the cosmos, identified as God. This domain of awareness is a core consciousness that is beyond our mind, intellect, and ego. In religious traditions this core consciousness is referred to as the soul which is part of a collective soul or collective consciousness, which in turn is part of a more universal domain of consciousness referred to in religions as God.
The experience itself, if not its interpretation, is the same in all religions, and in all religions it inspires a sense of oneness and belonging. The information that underlies the universe, the Akashic Field, is part of the universe. Scientists are limited to speaking about the natural world; they must leave speculation about transcendent realities to poets, philosophers, and spiritual masters. If the substance of the spiritual experience is always and everywhere the same, differences in its expression and interpretation are secondary and not a valid cause for conflict and intolerance.
The world to which our quantum brain connects us is fundamentally one, whether its oneness is due to an information field within the natural world or the work of a divine transcendent intelligence.
To enter into communion with this oneness has been the quest of all the great teachers and spiritual masters. And to understand the nature of this oneness has been, and is, the ultimate quest of all great scientists.
Einstein said that knowing this equation would be reading the mind of God.
At the end of the war[ vague ] he moved to the United States. He has published about 75 books and over papers,[ citation needed ] and is editor of World Futures: The Journal of General Evolution. He participated in the Stock Exchange of Visions project in In , he was elected an external member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. One of their two sons is Alexander Laszlo. Their goal was to explore whether it might be possible to use the chaos theory to identify a new general theory of evolution that might serve as a path to a better world. Using the Sanskrit and Vedic term for " space ", Akasha , he calls this information field the "Akashic field" or "A-field".
AKASHIC FIELD LASZLO PDF
Return Home What is the Akashic Field? Philosopher and systems theorist Ervin Laszlo makes the case that science is finally in a position to produce a theory of everything ToE. Drawing on anomalies and advances in cosmology, quantum physics, biology, and consciousness studies, he shows how the discovery in physics of the zero point energy field ZPE , is also the discovery of a universal information field. Mystics and sages have long maintained that an interconnecting cosmic field exists at the roots of reality that conserves and conveys information, a field known as the Akashic Record.
