Meditation,Oneness and Physics:A Journey Through the Laboratories of Physics and Meditation by Glen Peter Kezwer, physicist and author, is a lovely paperback to own, especially if you are drawn to the popular topic of meditation. The paperback, 240 pages, treats meditation as a science unto itself which can be taken on an equal footing with physics. In the world of physics, the objects of study are the phenomena of the physical universe; in the world of meditation, according to Kezwer, it is the consciousness of the meditator which is under investigation. The author compares the techniques and methods of the laboratory of physics with those of the laboratory of meditation, elucidating fascinating parallels along the way.

Kezwer points out that while physics extends outward from the observer to the outside universe, the meditator, on the other hand, reverses this direction by closing his or her eyes and going inward. Physicists must use a multitude of instruments for making their observations of the world, but the scientist in the laboratory of meditation needs only a quiet, comfortable place to sit.

The author posits that the ultimate finding in the laboratory of meditation is the vision of Oneness: all of reality is one undivided whole which transcends space and time and is permeated by the one and only one consciousness. He refers to prominent physicists who have come to similar conclusions, such as Erwin Schrödinger, one of the founding fathers of Quantum Physics, who stated, “Consciousness is the singular of which the plural is unknown.”

Kezwer presents similarities between the findings of both the quantum theory and the theory of relativity and those of the science of meditation. Along the way, the reader is treated to an understanding of these two theories which revolutionized the world of physics in the twentieth century. The views of prominent physicists such as Albert Einstein, Neils Bohr, and Max Planck are discussed throughout the book.

The focus of Kezwer’s book is to show how meditation can bring many benefits, the most important being a realization of the oneness of all consciousness. The author writes at the end of the book: “The barrier between ‘in here’ and ‘out there’ dissolves, and the all-pervasive, infinite nature of consciousness is revealed.”

It was in 1975 that physicist Fritjof Capra published The Tao of Physics, a revolutionary book comparing Eastern spirituality to the world of physics. This classic work was followed by a flood of books presenting a variety of approaches to this subject. In my view, Meditation, Oneness and Physics: A Journey Through the Laboratories of Physics and Meditation, also written by a physicist, offers a unique approach and an interesting and thought-provoking read that is highly relevant to readers in the twenty-first century.
