9780892819942: The Crack in the Cosmic Egg: New Constructs of Mind and Reality

The classic work that shaped the thought of a generation with its powerful insights into the true nature of mind and reality.

· Defines culture as a "cosmic egg" structured by the mind's drive for logical ordering of its universe.

· Provides techniques allowing individuals to break through the vicious circle of logic-based systems to attain expanded ways of creative living and learning.

The sum total of our notions of what the world is--and what we perceive its full potential to be--form a shell of rational thought in which we reside. This logical universe creates a vicious circle of reasoning that robs our minds of power and prevents us from reaching our true potential. To step beyond that circle requires a centering and focus that today's society assaults on every level. Through the insights of Teilhard, Tillich, Jung, Jesus, Carlos Castaneda, and others, Joseph Chilton Pearce provides a mode of thinking through which imagination can escape the mundane shell of current construct reality and leap into a new phase of human evolution.

This enormously popular New Age classic is finally available again to challenge the assumptions of a new generation of readers and help them develop their potential through new creative modes of thinking. With a masterful synthesis of recent discoveries in physics, biology, and psychology, Pearce reveals the extraordinary relationship of mind and reality and nature's blueprint for a self-transcending humanity.

"Classic" is the word generally used to describe a work that is still fresh and relevant years after its first publication, be it written millennia ago like Plato's dialogues, or centuries ago like the crisp and startling words of Thomas Jefferson or Teilhard de Chardin, or just three decades ago as was the first edition of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg.

Classics, in addition to having survived the years, are also viewed as such because they've changed not just a few individual lives but entire cultural paradigms. With this book, Joseph Chilton Pearce introduced a crack into the egg of Western culture in the early 1970s that in many ways led directly to the more esoteric aspects of the modern self-help movement, the widespread interest in mysticism, and the discovery of the intersection of science and spirituality.

This is a life-changing book, and, as such, it's worth taking in slowly and comfortably over some time. I remember it took me months to completely digest it the first time I read it, as I kept encountering concepts or ideas that I had to reality test, or discuss with others, or carry around, look at from different directions, talk with myself about, and even dream about before I could fully understand and integrate them into my life.
