New worldview: Malcolm Hollick, who joined the Findhorn Community in 1997 and was foundation principal of Findhorn Foundation College, begins his book, The Science of Oneness: A Worldview for the Twenty-first Century, with this thought: "I embarked on the journey of this book because I wanted to help make the world a better place." As the chapter "A Brief History of the Universe" implies, this is not a simple read for a rainy Sunday afternoon. It is, however, a worthy primer of what humankind knows and intuits about reality, about the self, and about the consciousness that fills the empty space. Each of the seven parts of the book (Towards a Science of Oneness; The Science of Systems; Relativity and Quantum Physics; The Evolution of the Cosmos; Life; Brain, Mind and Consciousness; and Spirit and Spirituality) are followed by a review of the information presented, and a meditative reflection to inspire remembrance by helping you tap into your intuitive, subconscious knowing. The Science of Oneness is available at amazon.com.
