This book is about the heart of religious experience, namely
Enlightenment (which is finding the truth concerning oneself), and about
science (which is finding the truth concerning other things), and about
the relationship between them.
It claims that Enlightenment is more truly scientific than science
itself; and that, without Enlightenment, science is only half the story
and therefore full of contradictions, of insoluble problems both
theoretical and practical. It shows how, when at last one turns one's
attention round and ceases to overlook the Looker - the First Person at
the near-end of one's microscope or telescope or spectacles - these
contradictions are resolved. Some 37 examples are given, taken from such
diverse fields as physics, mathematics, semantics, epistemology, and
psychotherapy, to show how nothing less than Enlightenment makes sense
and works out.
The listener will find that Enlightenment is not, after all, an
unattainable mystery, but perfectly natural and instantly accessible to
anyone who carries out the simple test - the basic experiment of the
Science of the First Person - which this audiobook describes.
