Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Jun 20, Koshin rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I picked up this book after reading about the authors bio on wikipedia. I found the ideas fascinating as the author tries to construct a model of the metaphysical world using concepts already known in physics. There is very little in the way of formulas or proofs and he has very good analogies that try to relate concepts on a metaphysical level with real world examples.
Some people have problems with his approach and would chastise the work as lacking in scientific rigor. I found the book entert I picked up this book after reading about the authors bio on wikipedia. I found the book entertaining and informative. It also made me want to delve into quantum physics more than just the one introductory course I took that was a mandatory part of the curriculum.
His theories are interesting and some of them seem plausible. Some of the most interesting theories that I found from the book include The physical universe is entirely composed of consciousness and all living and non-living beings contain consciousness it is just a matter of what degree. The human body goes into a state of resonance internally and also with the earth during meditation. Planets, stars and galaxies are all living organisms. The brain is a thought amplifier, not a thought generator.
He relates reincarnation to the newtons second law conservation of energy. Our metaphysical energy is conserved when we die. The universe is a giant hologram and all knowledge is available to us if we are able to tap into it. He builds his model step by step through each chapter of the book until he tries to explain the creation of the universe.
The final chapter deals with case studies on Kundalini Syndrome and I am not sure why he included it in the book. My guess is that it was possibly to warn the user of the potential dangers that may arise from prolonged meditation. Bentov was not a formally trained scientist and he makes the book easy for the lay reader to understand.
I personally believe the man was brilliant and someday when we truly understand the mechanics of consciousness, he will get his just due. If anything the book definitely makes you question reality and how it operates on a grand scale. Sep 09, Jeanne rated it really liked it Shelves: This is by far the clearest discussion of quantum theory I have read to date.
Few people seem to have a speaking grasp of quantum physics and its implications. This book could change that. In his chapter, “A Morse Code of Action and Rest,” Bentov explains the movement and rest phases of a pendulum in such a way that it is clear to me how we can enter altered or parallel states of reality at the zero point.
This fits with what I read in The Power of Now, and the Tobias channels of the Crimson Cir This is by far the clearest discussion of quantum theory I have read to date. A powerful book on the nature of consciousness and the universe, Stalking The Wild Pendulum is a masterpiece. Itzhak Bentov weaves together diverse subjects including, physics, cosmology, subtle energy, and spirituality to deliver a groundbreaking book that has become a reference for all those who seek to understand the self and the universe.

The first four chapters are quite demanding science reading for the novice, however well worth the effort.
Bentov forms a coherent theory following the laying this groundwork, one that places human consciousness on a continuum with light and sound, and consists of a pendulum movement, like the swinging arm of a grandfather clock. Like th A provocative must-read for anyone looking to take in contemporary theoretical perspectives on the intersection between quantum physics and human consciousness. Like the clock, consciousness oscillates between motion and rest.
It is during the infinitely small units of time in the periodic phase when consciousness comes to rest that all sorts of incredible events can occur. Bentov posits that we literally occupy a different reality than the manifested moving physical reality during these moments of periodic wave rest, and expansion of space-time, clairvoyance and deep meditative states of altered consciousness, including the absolute, can be accessed.
Jan 27, Nathan rated it really liked it. As mentioned by other reviewers, the beginning the best itzhao.
I think Bentov gets carried away in the latter section of the book but still is on to something. With some refinement, this could have been a mind-blowing book. Aug 28, Tom Stroh rated it it was amazing. I need to re-read this.

He proclaims our entire existence is subconsciously experienced as swinging back and forth between the time we are individuals and the time when we “are part of the thing that is everything” sort of like the Matrix only benign Knowledge and phenomena exist in “the everything” as big bubbles or concentrations.

Itzhak Bentov (Author of Stalking the Wild Pendulum)
Great geniuses of all kinds tap in and bring back big chunks of insight and consequently make great leaps. Conversely, “the thing that is everything” is completely present in the smallest of scales. BUT some of the core concepts radically changed my perception of reality when I was young. I still think about it.
Especially when I see an “accident bubble” rolling down the street! I guess I still believe the basics. Mar 08, Lage von Dissen rated it liked it. Bentov certainly has a prolific imagination, and this book does a decent job of giving us a taste. He points out many rhythms, cycles, and patterns in nature, and how conscious beings are a part of and how they igzhak altered those attributes.
He discusses quantity vs. He discusses temporal properties, cosmology potential origin and cycles of the universeetc. Needless to say, he covers quite a range of topi Bentov certainly has a prolific imagination, and this book does a decent job of giving us a taste. Needless to say, he covers quite a range of topics in this book, allowing us to exercise our critical thought, creativity, and relate so many different concepts together in one enterprise.
I recommend this book to anyone itzhhak imagination and an interest in the sciences. Jan 12, Sean rated it it was amazing Shelves: Relying on barely any external references, this book presents an alternative view of the universe.
The Hidden Science and Lost Civilizations Behind the Prophecies hereas I think them excellent compliments to each other, itzha I don’t recall if it’s completely accurate that the book doesn’t use many external references. Feb 15, Debra Brunk rated it it was amazing. It was refreshing to read something so different.
The author sets out to show the relationship between quantum physics and consciousness, existence and creation of the galaxy ies. It’s very technical, abstract stuff, but the author does an amazing job of explaining it via diagrams and easy-to-relate-to analogies. A great book for those interested in consciousness and willing to entertain some interesting theories Nov 15, Nicholas rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book to me trod the line between modern physics and occult philosophy.
It is very clear concise and readable,though the diagrams could have been better. Too often books on these subjects plunge headlong into the abyss of mysticism,faith healing and ranting Utopian ideals,this however is a much more serious effort at explaining the mechanics of consciousness.
It is izthak enlightening book in my opinion.
