Présentation de l'éditeur

Presents the unifying world-concept long sought by scientists, mystics, and sages: an Integral Theory of Everything

• Explains how modern science has rediscovered the Akashic Field of perennial philosophy

• New edition updates ongoing scientific studies, presents new research inspired by the first edition, and includes new case studies and a section on animal telepathy

Mystics and sages have long maintained that there exists an interconnecting cosmic field at the roots of reality that conserves and conveys information, a field known as the Akashic record. Recent discoveries in vacuum physics show that this Akashic Field is real and has its equivalent in science’s zero-point field that underlies space itself. This field consists of a subtle sea of fluctuating energies from which all things arise: atoms and galaxies, stars and planets, living beings, and even consciousness. This zero-point Akashic Field is the constant and enduring memory of the universe. It holds the record of all that has happened on Earth and in the cosmos and relates it to all that is yet to happen.

In Science and the Akashic Field, philosopher and scientist Ervin Laszlo conveys the essential element of this information field in language that is accessible and clear. From the world of science he confirms our deepest intuitions of the oneness of creation in the Integral Theory of Everything. We discover that, as philosopher William James stated, “We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep.”

3.0 étoiles sur 5 On the Fringe of Science 30 août 2014
Potential readers need to know that some familiarity with the basic concepts of science is required to understand what is discussed in "Science and the Akashic Field". While it remains accessible for the lay reader it could still be challenging for the uninitiated. But the explanations are always clear.

After watching an interview of the author on YouTube I decided to acquire his book. I was impressed by the views he expressed and was looking forward to find more about him. But even if I was already familiar with many of the ideas that are discussed here and consider myself open minded towards any bold proposition on the "fringe" of science, I was taken aback by the numerous affirmations that Laszlo wants to shove down our collective throat. It's one affirmation after the other, and there is no room for discussion. You take it or you leave it. It's almost as if God had revealed to Laszlo, and no one else, how the world was created. But even if the author appears to have some mystical inclination this does not necessarily mean that it is a spiritual book, like some reviewers have claimed. For it remains essentially a science book. Fringe science would actually be the best way to characterize this work. I know that many concepts of science were at one point considered "fringe science" before they were integrated to the mainstream, and this could indeed be the case one day for some of the ideas that Laszlo presents here. But he has not proven anything yet and most importantly he makes no predictions that could be verified in the future.

Laszlo is quick to dismiss some competing theories which in his mind are only imaginative working hypothesis that can be viewed as fables. But he doesn't seem to realize that what he himself proposes is every bit as "fabulous".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The universal in-formation field 1 septembre 2009
Par rowley32256 - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Irvin Laszlo's "Science and the Akashic Field" discusses his theory that there is more to reality than the physical realm of modern science. His central point is this: "we need to recognize the presence of a factor that is neither matter nor energy. The importance of this factor is now acknowledged not only in the human and social sciences, but also in the physical and life sciences. It is information - information as a real and effective factor setting the parameters of the universe at its birth, and thereafter governing the evolution of its basic elements into complex systems ... It is the presence of in-formation throughout the cosmos, carried and conveyed by the universal in-formation field we have named the Akashic field."

Laszlo credits David Bohm with some of the insights underlying his (Laszlo's) theory: "other physicists, among them David Bohm, refused to accept the quantum physical concept as a full description of reality. His "hidden variables theory" suggests that the selection of the state of the quantum is not random; it is guided by an underlying physical process. In Bohm's theory a pilot wave, indentified as the quantum potential "Q", emerges from a deeper, unobservable domain of the universe and guides the observed behavior of particles. Thus, particle behavior is indeterministic only at the surface; at the deeper level it is determined by the quantum potential. Later Bohm called the deeper level of reality the "implicate order", a holofield where all the states of the quantum are permanently coded. Observed reality is the "explicate order"; it is rooted in, and unfolds from, the implicate order." I find similarities between the ideas of Bohm and Laszlo and those of Michael Talbot "The Holographic Universe"; Gregg Braden "The Divine Matrix"; Dean Radin "Entangled Minds"; Bruce Lipton "The Biology of Belief" and Bernard Haisch "The God Theory". In various ways these writers have postulated connectivity or "entanglement" between all (including concealed) aspects of the universe.

Like the authors mentioned above, Laszlo acknowledges the reality of spirituality: "Intercessory prayer and spiritual healing, together with other mind- and conscious intent-based practices yield impressive evidence regarding the effectiveness of telepathic and telesomatic information- and energy-transmission. The practices produce real and measurable effects, but classical medicine and the mainstream of Western science have no explanation for them." The implicate order, akashic or zero-point field, psi, or matrix, may be related to the ancient concept of a ubiquitous ether, and to tao and karma; if so, they might one day help us to integrate not just science and religion but also religion and religion. Regardless of how much of Laszlo's theories one accepts as factual or probable, his writing is absorbing and way of looking at the world is mind-opening and worthy of reflection.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Mystical collectivism 21 septembre 2012
Par Stephen E. Robbins - Publié sur
This book is an interesting and informed overview of current theories/views in physics with worthwhile efforts at drawing a larger view of a general form of "coherence" existing across the physical and biological spheres and the sphere of consciousness as well. As seems to be the norm, however, a theorist with the type of background of a Laszlo seldom has the capability of a reaching a depth of analysis or creative thought necessary to give us any extension of knowledge or theory. Despite the confidence in "coherence" as a pattern extending across spheres, there yet remain the very concrete conundrums of physics - just how are the phenomena/laws of the quantum world actually extended into the macro or Newtonian level? Just how is relativity reconciled to the quantum, or just what might be wrong with relativity? One will find no solutions offered. This would require the real thought. In the consciousness sphere, Chalmers's "hard problem" is declared to have "evaporated" since "the rudimentary consciousness of matter at a lower level of organization becomes integrated in the more evolved consciousness of matter at a higher level." But this is no solution; it is simply Laszlo's failure to grasp the nature of the hard problem. (Forgive the link here, but this happens to be the best explanation of the real nature of the problem I can point to: Time and Memory: a primer on the scientific mysticism of consciousness )

As the book obviously has a thrust into the mystical, there seems to be a vision of the human race as participants in (in the coherence of) a collective consciousness. Lacking is any recognition or weight on the principle of the Christ consciousness, namely, that of Cosmic Being fully aware of Itself as an individual (or the individual fully aware of Itself as Cosmic Being). What power a race of such individuals - each like a Babaji - would be in this world; such would not be limited by false resource constraints/assumptions, nor be fit subjects for control by a one world government. But Laszlo seems only interested in the collective (coherent) consciousness of the race, i.e., each individual aware of himself as a member of the collective, universal consciousness - uncomfortably resonant of the Borg.

One picks up this collectivist strain in Laszlo's autobiographical discussion at the end of the book. From concert pianist, he becomes associated with the Club of Rome, editing/producing a book, "Goals for Mankind." I have this book at hand. Its astounding list of prestigious contributors can only be an index into the elite power behind the scenes that coordinated this book. Its thesis turns heavily on the concept of a finite pie of resources or a limited and soon-to-be-consumed-resources view of the globe. It ends by proposing another level of "system" injected into global organization - what could only be a vast Brussels-like bureaucracy that would coordinate and control all energy policy for all nations across the globe. This is hardly the vision of an unlimited Christ Consciousness. This is just one dimension in what is clearly envisioned as a world government with sovereign nations subordinate to some mysteriously appointed "wise" officials (visions of Plato's controlled "utopia") who could only create a grid-lock of insane bureaucratic policy of stupendous proportions. Levin's "Ameritopia" actually contains deeper spiritual insight. Laszlo has gone on to found the Club of Budapest, an organization apparently oriented to exploring the one world vision of a religion. I can only think this agenda and predilection is behind the subtle, collectivist orientation one senses in Science and the Akashic Field.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Laszlo has some great new ideas but are they really new? 5 juin 2009
Par John J. Wright - Publié sur
Compared to many scientist Ervin Laszlo is on the cutting edge of new ideas in physics. The fact that there is a body of knowledge that connects and is behind every living thing has been known well forever its called God. I like Dr. Laszlo's ideas of multiverses and some of the new theorys he presents and the old ones that have been discredited. His are great Ideas but not new. They have been explained in the Vedas and the Bhagavad Gita thousands of years ago. Only now is western science coming to the same knowledge that was presented 5000 years ago. But this is not a bad thing. The western mind cant often take something on faith. It must test and measure and weigh. We are on our way back to what we allready knew but what we knew was good. Try this book Dr. Laszlo will present some mind boggling theorys but they may just be right.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Didactic and elevating in scope! 27 août 2009
Par Matthew J. Schimpf - Publié sur
Ideas, concepts and realities that have been discussed for millennia are now starting to appear on the cutting edge of science. What the ancients called Akasha, physicists now call the quantum vacuum. What once was called Brahman we now might call the Zero Point Field. What we can see is now the explicate order, the hidden is the implicate order. Once we learn to drop the ego perspective we will realize that we have been referring to the same facets of reality.

This wonderful work goes a long way in uniting esoteric "night language" concepts with empirical "day language" facts, figures and data. What scientists are trying to decipher and explain; contemplative traditions have been experiencing. Science and the Akashic Field is a very unique, intelligent and enjoyable read. 4 stars on the board from me.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An elegant, ancient concept that could create a scientific revolution (warning: long review!) 19 février 2009

Science and the Akashic Field
by Ervin Laszlo
(Inner Traditions, 2004, 2007)


"Akasha is a Sanskrit word meaning `ether': all-pervasive space. Originally signifying `radiation' or `brilliance,' in Indian philosophy akasha was considered the first and most fundamental of the five elements... `The Akashic Record' is the enduring record of all that happens, and has ever happened, in the whole of the universe." In this book Ervin Laszlo, a highly acclaimed scientist in the field of systems theory, argues that the Akashic field is an integral quality of the quantum vacuum, or empty space. He documents many examples of "nonlocal coherence," or ways in which information apparently can break the laws of physics, getting caught speeding faster than light, and even swimming up the stream of time. Drawing from the fields of quantum physics, cosmology, biology and consciousness, he shows how "anomalies" appear repeatedly - phenomena that can't be explained by established scientific theories.

Because these anomalies share similar characteristics, they suggest that science is missing a crucial theoretical aspect. Laszlo argues that in addition to the established fields of quantum physics, such as the Higgs field that gives mass to matter and the zero-point field that underlies the energy of the universe, there must also be a field that keeps a record or memory of all prior events, just like the Akashic Record. If quantum physics were to accept this hypothesis, then the strange anomalies that have been documented at the fringes of science and parapsychology could be explained and included in mainstream science. Laszlo's argument is elegant and concise, and the principle of Occam's Razor, which is one of the philosophical foundations of science, suggests that his theory is probably true because it explains observations more simply than other theories do.


Ervin Laszlo was an acclaimed concert pianist who entered academics on a quest to understand the nature of life and the meaning of his own life. He quickly ascended to the top, gaining an advanced Ph.D. from the Sorbonne in Paris, one of the most prestigious universities in the world, and then teaching at Yale, SUNY and Princeton. Along the way he wrote 75 influential books and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. So when he explores subjects typically reserved for mystics and poets, he speaks with a voice of confidence, backed by the force of Western intellectual history and endorsed by many who have attained the highest levels of recognition as scientists. His intended audience includes his peers, the greatest modern scientific minds, the ones with hearts courageous enough to look at the ragged edges of existing paradigms, the places where reality doesn't sensibly agree with human logic, and where scientific anomalies abound. Laszlo's own courage to investigate these frontiers makes him a trailblazer in the theoretical sciences, and this report about the Akashic field must be seriously considered by all who seek Truth through the sciences.

If you are fascinated by the creation vs. evolution debate, as I have been for decades, and wish that the Intelligent Design folks could construct an argument that actually sounds "intelligent" to the scientific establishment, then I highly recommend this book to you, and especially Chapter 5: "The Origins and Destiny of Life and the Universe." Laszlo's concise answers to the greatest philosophical questions - like "Where did the Universe come from, and where is it going?" - left me feeling satisfied. This is a rare and commendable accomplishment because I have developed deep sensitivities toward both sides of the debate and chafe at dogmatic or overly simplified approaches.

Suggested Improvements:

Three aspects of this book disappointed me. First, Laszlo's systems- and process-based language generally lacks compelling visual imagery. Although lucid and logical, his style lacks in poetic resonance what it gains in precise economy. Some concrete images occasionally appear, with powerful impact. For example, in "The Parable of the Sea," he describes how the wave-patterns left by boats on the surface of a flat sea can be "read," revealing information about the speed, direction, passing time and weight of each boat. I pondered this for hours while walking along the beach, with each of my footprints adding complexity to the already infinite patterns of the Pacific. From this it became apparent that future scientists attempting to understand the Akashic field will need a deep understanding of mathematical fields of topology and infinity.

The second weakness was the overall organization. Because the author wants to inform on so many levels simultaneously, it was difficult for his editors to know where to start. I suggest reading the chapters in a different order: Appendix 2 (Autobiography), Intro, Part 1, Appendix 1 (Coherence), Part 2, and completely omit Chapter 7. The chapter to skip, "The Poetry of the Akashic Vision" is an admirable attempt to speak "not to our intellect, but to our heart." Unfortunately it comes across as a THC-induced moment of rapture, scribbled down in a moment of hallucinogenic inspiration, but which makes absolutely no sense the next morning. Compounding the problem, Laszlo's "poetry" reads like Alfred Whitehead, not Pablo Neruda, brimming with intangible abstraction: "The micropatterns trace their careers in the expanding space of the initial explosion and take on structure and complexity. They modulate the turbulent plenum. It is more and more structured at the surface, as the ripples cohere into complex wave-structures; and it is more and more modulated below, as the evolving structures create minute vortices that integrate into information-carrying holograms" (page 131). If taken in isolation this chapter is a literary disaster, but it could become a lovely narration accompanying a computer-animated film on the cycles of the Metaverse. In its defense, there is something forgivably endearing about an aging scientific genius and concert pianist attempting to include a poetic approach in his grand synthesis of a theory of everything that conveys the meaning of life.

The third and largest disappointment is Laszlo's lack of mention of a few significant authors who preceded him in the quest for an Integral Theory of Everything. His book sits on my shelf besides four other similarly monumental works, none of which are mentioned by Laszlo, perhaps only because the credentials of their authors are not on par with his own. In The Field, journalist Lynne McTaggert tells a wondrous story that connects the quests of many scientists independently researching the zero-point field. In The Holographic Universe, poet and mystic Michael Talbot applies the paradigm of neuroscientist Karl Pribam and physicist David Bohm to the whole gamut of anomalous phenomenon, in a spellbinding fashion. Finally, in The Phenomenon of Man, the Jesuit anthropologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin actually addresses most of the same questions as Lazlo, coming to similar conclusions, but using theological concepts like Christogenesis and Noosphere for terms like zero-point field and Akashic Record. DeChardin's use of language is more elegant, and his poetic imagery completely lands in the place where Laszlo's chapter seven completely misses. Often credited as the founding father of the New Age movement, de Chardin is regularly snubbed by non-Catholic academics because of his involvement in the Piltdown forgery and his blending of religion with science. Even in Laszlo's work, for example, the concept of "punctuated equilibrium" is erroneously credited to Harvard's Stephen Jay Gould instead of de Chardin, who accurately described the concept decades before Gould.


Ervin Laszlo has given a beautiful gift to the future of science in the form of Science and the Akashic Field. The Integral Theory of Everything that he presents in this book shows how the addition of one extra concept - the Akashic Field - can give a viable framework for the interpretation of many anomalous, measurable events that don't fit into existing scientific paradigms. The concept will certainly be controversial, because it opens the door to mystical and religious interpretations of reality. But it simultaneously expands the atheist's power. Instead of dogmatically rejecting anomalous events like near-death experiences, quantum entanglement and mysterious psychic connections between people, he can now ascribe these to a property of the physical universe/metaverse. Although the Akashic field has a memory of all events, that fact does not necessarily imply a divine personality or self-awareness, as theists maintain. On the other hand, accepting the existence of a universal field of memory means accepting one characteristic usually ascribed to God. So it becomes a shorter step from a material universe to a spiritual one.

As Laszlo himself concludes, "There is no need to ascribe nonlocal coherence, the remarkable space- and time-transcending connection of everything to everything else, to the action of divine will or to forces above or beyond the natural world. Nonlocal coherence is a bona fide scientific phenomenon, just as real and understandable as light, electromagnetism, mass and gravitation... [The Akashic field is] ... the logical explanation of nonlocal coherence: of the mysterious way in which quanta are connected across space and time, of the evident but nonetheless astounding fact that we and other organisms have evolved and can live on this planet and, last but not least, of the seemingly miraculous capacity of the universe to bring forth human beings such as you and I, who now ask themselves why this universe is so well-tuned that in all essential respects it is both instantly and universally interconnected."
