FROM THE EROWID REVIEW #
BACK COVER #Explore the relationships between chaos, creativity, and imagination, and their connection to the soul of the world. Join Ralph Abraham, mathematician and leader in the new science of chaos, Terence McKenna, shamanologist and ethno-pharmcologist, and Rupert Sheldrake, acclimied biologist and originator of the theory of morphogenetic fields, as they "trialogue" on such questions as:
- How can chaos contribute to our lives?
- Is Armageddon a self-fulfilling prophecy?
- How can scientists and mystics share the same planet?
BLURBS #"Trialogues is a book for all who seek to quest beyond the limits of the ordinary. Three fine thinkers take us plunging into the universe of chaos, mind, and spirit. Instead of leaving us lost, they bring us back with startling insights and more wonder than we knew we had."
-- Matthew Fox, author of The Coming of the Cosmic Christ, Whee!, We, wee and Original Blessing.
"Trialogues records the exciting intellectual friendship of three amazing minds pushing to the edge of history in search of a new consciousness blending scientific observation, mythical imagination, and visionary speculation."
-- Riane Eisler, author of The Challice and The Blade
"Trialogues should be required reading for anyone who believes that science and spirituality cannot and should not interact. These world-class thinkers are three frolicsome sprites at play in the field of the universe. Do something daring: Read this book, join the play, and go to the edge with them."
-- Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Space, Time and Medicine and Recovering the Soul
