When Fred Alan Wolf is impressed with an author, you know that thias is going to be a good one! In this book David Loye gives a concise and readable overview of what he considered to be the final frontier...the connection of mind and matter.

Definitely one to be there on the schelf next to The Seven Mysteries of Life and Goder, Eschel & Bok...

Loye is a respected futurist and psychologist. Not credible in describing hard science issues. For example, makes too much of the 'guesswork' of physics, or 'cognition' waves, or mathmatical dilemmas. Starts to see "precognition" as a phenomenon, as if it is a template for predicting futures. Offers useful tools, tests, field trips. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 039472187X, Paperback)

An in-depth presentation of the latest findings of the brain and consciousness sciences, written for the lay reader. The Sphinx and the Rainbow focuses on the current right brain / left brain dialogue and shows us how all the parts of the brain function creatively as a unit. Exploring the ancient puzzle of precognition and future prediction, Dr. Loye unlocks the mystery of how our brains forecast future events: the key lies in the interactions among the front, back, upper, and lower parts. In a popular style reminiscent of Fritjof Capra's, Loye weaves these discoveries into a complete picture of the total brain, synthesizing neurophysiology, psychology, parapsychology, and theoretical physics. The Sphinx and the Rainbow is the first book to bring together leading-edge findings of the brain / mind sciences to show how we use the "forecasting mind" to deal with all aspects of the future--including personal and economic survival. The book also shows the reader how to strengthen the neglected power of the forecasting mind. It offers the new HCP (Hemispheric Consensus Prediction) Profile Test, enabling the reader to determine his or her own right brain / left brain dominance, and interpreting the results.
