To Know What We Are (2nd edition)
A Scientific, Religious, and Mystical Study of Man and the Universe.
This is one of the most extraordinary books you will ever read. Some will call it revolutionary. Some will denounce it as heresy. But no reader will come away from it unaffected. From author Fred C. Bond's unique vantage point, the true nature of the universe can be understood through the confluence of science and religion. More
Fred C. Bond, a scientist by vocation and a student of religion by avocation, comes to grips with with the ultimate questions of life, soul, God, man, and universe.
Bond writes: “Gravitation is the quantity which which more than any other can unite these separated rivers of thought--science and religion. It is a material and measurable fact of science--a primary manifestation of matter. But since it is instantaneous it is timeless in action, and is therefore immaterial, permanent, and everlastingly real. It is the uniting power of the ONE undivided Ether. In our view the Ether is God. God is love, and gravitation is a manifestation of the love-force throughout nature.”
In that statement alone is the seed that could overturn two thousand years of orthodox thinking. The author's treatment of physics, astronomy, evolution, the religious and social history of man, anthropology, government, mystical consciousness, and the essence of love and hate, good and evil, soul and ego, is similarly unconventional.
To Know What We Are is an awesome and challenging book. It is for those who search for new insights and fresh perspectives and who are willing to discard outmoded concepts. For mankind as a whole, this book contains the rudiments of a new ethic and a new sense of global unity.
“Our civilization is entering a new era. Social and technological changes are all around us. We do not understand what our direction should be—there is uncertainty, argument, and trouble. The human spirit needs high motivation, and until we see our way clearly there will be much wasted effort. Man needs to know more about what he is.”
